Jim Carrey Outs the Illuminati [video]

Thanks to KP for sharing this. Carrey is one of my favourite Canadians.

‘Disclosure’ takes many forms and comes from many sources—some we may not even recognize, so subtle are they.

Jim Carrey’s delivery, however… not so subtle. And maybe that’s a GOOD thing. Enjoy—and thank you, Jim!

A Florida mother and her 5-month-old son were reunited Wednesday after a judge threw out accusations that Sarah Markham was an unfit mother for feeding her baby soy formula.

Markham lost custody of her son Caleb when he was just 12 days old after refusing her doctor’s orders to take the baby to the hospital for being underweight, according to a report by Florida TV station WFTV.

Caleb had reportedly lost 10 percent of his birth weight.

But before going to the hospital Markham, who is a vegan, wanted to try supplementing her breast milk with a soy formula, the station reported.

The doctor reported Markham to Seminole County Child Protective Services who had the young mother arrested for child neglect and took away custody of her little boy.

Since that time, Caleb has been raised by his grandparents.

“There’s no case, there’s no abuse, there’s…

​Quantum leap forward: China to launch world’s longest, ‘hack-proof’ network by 2016

Is this why Russia’s Internet traffic is running through China?  -LW

China is completing the project of the planet’s longest, 2,000-kilometer quantum communication network from Beijing to Shanghai. The network is considered “unhackable” and is set to start operating in 2016.

The “unhackability” is due to the most secure encryption technology ever, the South China Morning Post reported.

By 2030, the network is expected to stretch all over the globe, Xinhua news agency said.

For now, the service is to be used by the Chinese government, the military and key business institutions such as banks.

The plans were disclosed by Professor Pan Jianwei, a quantum physicist with the University of Science and Technology of China and a lead scientist behind the project.

“China’s quantum information science and technology is developing very fast and China leads in some areas in this field. Any city in China, as long they want to, can start to build the quantum communication network now,” he said, Xinhua reported.

Chen Yuxiang, chief engineer for the construction of the Beijing-Shanghai network, indicated that the infrastructure would be ready between the end of the year and next summer. The network also needs to be built and activated.

The budget for the Beijing-Shanghai project is estimated at 100 million yuan ($16 million) for every 10,000 users.

Theoretically, the quantum network can’t be hacked: should anyone try to intercept the encryption key, the physical status of the quantum data, or qubits, would change, and alert those who sent the information.

Europe, Japan and Canada are also planning to start their own quantum networks. The US has also been looking for funds to sponsor a 10,000-kilometer network between major cities.

Experts are sure, though, that China is ahead of everyone in the quantum network project.

“The Chinese are really pushing the boundaries. They are moving at an incredible rate. No one else around the world has plans that are this ambitious,” Raymond Laflamme, the head of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo in Canada, told The Telegraph.

“China is putting itself in the position of having secure private information that other countries will not be able to tap,” he added.

A Message to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney From a Dying Veteran

Tomas Young, disabled veteran and outspoken critic of the Iraq War died today at the age of 34. Here is his letter to Bush and Cheney.


Tomas Young

To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young

I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.

I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.

You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.

I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.

Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.

I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.

My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial. But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Russia, Iran sign nuclear construction deal for 8 units

What’s your take on this? Will nuclear power plants in Iran prevent bombings? Why are two oil-rich countries pursuing nuclear power?


[youtube https://youtu.be/4WQYuOg_F7A]

Russia is to build eight nuclear power units in Iran, as a new partnership agreement, guaranteed by the IAEA, was signed in Moscow on Tuesday.

The head of the Rosatom, Sergey Kirienko, and the chief of the Atomic Energy Agency of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, signed a series of documents, promoting the links in the field of peaceful application of atomic energy between the countries, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the agreement, Russia is to construct eight units with pressurized water reactors “turn-key ready” in Iran. Four of them will be built at the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, also completed by Russia a year ago.

Besides, nuclear fuel for the future reactors will be provided by Russia during the whole life cycle of the new reactors. Spent fuel will be returned for processing and storage.

“It is the turning point in the relations between our countries,” Salehi said. “These friendly actions, taken by Russia will be well-remembered.” He added that now Russia and Iran “have become even closer to each other.”

The partners didn’t touch upon the subject of possible shipment of enriched uranium to Iran.

“We didn’t discuss this question today,” Kirienko told journalists after the signing of the protocol.

The new document has been a protocol to the intergovernmental partnership agreement, signed on August 25, 1992. It marked the decision to continue building a nuclear power plant 18km from Bushehr, on the coast of the Persian Gulf in Iran.

The project will be guaranteed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), as the first unit of the Bushehr has been. It also will fully comply with the non-proliferation regime.

As reported earlier, the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant – with construction started in 1974 by a German company – was completed by Russia in 2013.

Back then it was decided that Moscow would guarantee its operation for two years, and Russian experts would stay on hand to advise personnel and provide technical support.

Iran is currently facing a November 24 deadline to reach an agreement on its nuclear program, within the frame of year-long diplomatic talks. On Monday, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry tried to overcome the problems, and, according to the US State Department, the talks had proven “tough, direct and serious,” yet “there is still time” for progress, AFP reported.

Veterans Sue Banks For Funding Terrorist Attacks on US Soldiers

Now here’s a Remembrance Day (Veterans Day) news story you probably won’t see on mainstream media, even though it is about seeking justice for soldiers. -LW

Vets Sue Banks For Funding Terrorist Attacks on US Soldiers - Top US & World News | Susanne Posel

An unprecedented 200 plus American service men and women (including family members of soldiers killed in Iraq) filed a lawsuit in Brooklyn, in a federal court, citing that banks financed more than 50 attacks on Americans stationed or working in Iraq during the war.

The banks named in the suit are:

  • HSBC
  • Barclays
  • Standard Chartered
  • Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS)
  • Credit Suisse
  • Bank Saderat Iran, UK-based subsidiary of Iranian bank

The lawsuit states that these banks transferred “billions of dollars on behalf of Iran; even after sanctions were placed on the country because of their suspected financing of terrorist organizations.

Court papers filed reveal: “The defendants provided Iran with the means by which it could transfer more than $150 million to the I.R.G.C.-Q.F., Hezbollah and Special Groups, which were actively engaged in planning and perpetrating the murder and maiming of hundreds of Americans in Iraq.”

In fact, the lawsuit explains how the banks cited just happened “to do business with Iranian financial institutions that have separately financed Hezbollah, the Shiite militant group and political party suspected of aiding attacks in Iraq, as well as Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force and other instruments of Iranian state-sponsored terrorism.”

This litigation focuses on how the banks “finance illegal activity” and played a role in handling “tainted transactions” by using the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) to show the bank’s hand in providing “material support” to terrorists.

Gary Osen, one attorney for the plaintiffs, pointed out: “Does it matter whether a particular bank was the physical conduit of the transfers to the terror apparatus, or is it enough that they were in a conspiracy which made that possible, and that they were, as a legal matter, deliberately indifferent to that result?”

In order to move money, according to the lawsuit, banks “ conspired with Iranian banks to mask wire transactions in order to evade US sanctions.”

It is estimated that at least $100 million was funneled to terrorist groups operating in Iraq under the control of Iran:

  • a Shi’ite militia in Iraq
  • Kataib Hezbollah
  • Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

This lawsuit alleges that these banks “indirectly facilitated the attacks by entering into agreements with Iranian banks to mask US dollar wire transactions sent through the United States.”

Osen said: “Each defendant understood that their conduct was part of a larger scheme engineered by Iran.”

HSBC has a history of financing terrorist clients from countries such as Mexico, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria.”

Back in 2012, in Mexico, HSBC allowed massive amounts of monies to be funneled to drug cartels while simultaneously servicing clients in Saudi Arabian and Bangladesh banks to finance many terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda.

At the time, it was revealed that “HSBC officials working closely with Saudi Arabian banks linked to terrorist organizations.”

In a news article about the lawsuit: “… the four-count criminal information filed in the court charged HSBC with failure to maintain an effective anti-money laundering program, to conduct due diligence on its foreign correspondent affiliates and for violating sanctions and the Trading With the Enemy Act.”

It is clear that “if [the banks] do business with terrorists, [they] can be held liable.”
