Sometimes breaking the law is the ‘only moral’ choice: Snowden opens up to Ecuador’s ex-president Correa (VIDEO)


24-01-20 08:56:00,

People need to differentiate between legality and morality, and recognize that sometimes doing the right thing means breaking the law, Edward Snowden told Ecuador’s former president Rafael Correa in a wide-ranging interview.

The NSA whistleblower, vilified by Washington after he leaked a trove of documents outlining mass surveillance techniques used by American intelligence agencies, argued that everyone has a duty to expose wrongdoing – regardless of legality.

“Sometimes the only moral decision that an individual has is to break the law,” he told Correa.

Snowden firmly rejected the argument that legitimate whistleblowers pose a security threat, stressing that the real danger facing all nations is unwarranted government secrecy.

One of the core threats to the rule of law in a society… is the government using secrecy as a shield against democratic accountability. Using secrecy… to excuse themselves from public awareness of what it is exactly that they’ve been doing.

The former intelligence contractor revealed the NSA’s mass surveillance program in 2013. Snowden, who was granted asylum by Russia, has offered to stand trial in the US on espionage charges, on the condition that he be allowed to tell the court why he blew the whistle – a request that he claims has been refused.

Breaking Open a Black Hole: The World’s Most Dangerous Experiment – Global Research


08-11-19 05:30:00,

2012 was a big year for black holes. Or, rather, for our understanding of them. First, Scientific American published a moderately terrifying paper titled “Black Holes are Everywhere” and then a team of researchers at Princeton University numerically solved the Einstein-hydrodynamic equations in order to determine that black holes are, in fact, way easier to create than previously thought.

Their findings showed that the formation of a black hole requires considerably less energy than previous calculations suggested. Meanwhile, perhaps at least partly because of these revelations, concern over the world-destroying possibility–no matter how unlikely–of a man-made particle collider opening up an Earth-swallowing black hole has remained omnipresent in the larger conversation around atomic research.

The “Ultrarelativistic Black Hole Formation” study from Princeton University, published in 2013, developed new computer models which they utilized to show that the formation of a black hole would actually require less than half the energy — 2.4 times less, to be precise — than previous research had determined. The study reports that the researchers found that “the threshold for black hole formation is lower (by a factor of a few) than simple hoop conjecture estimates, and, moreover, near this threshold two distinct apparent horizons first form postcollision and then merge.”

Credit: W. E. East and F. Pretorius, Phys. Rev. Lett. (2013)

As a report at explains,

“Researchers know that it is theoretically possible to create black holes because of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity—particularly the part describing the relationship between energy and mass—increasing the speed of a particle causes its mass to increase as well.”

This is what drove the Princeton researchers to form a computer model based on Einstein’s original hydrodynamic equations. The model “provides a virtual window for viewing what happens when two particles collide—they focus their energies on each other and together create a combined mass that pushes gravity to its limit and as a result spawns a very tiny black hole. That result was expected—what was surprising was that the team found that their model showed that such a collision and result would require 2.4 times less energy than has been previously calculated to produce such a tiny black hole.”

And our galaxy is positively chock-full of them.

By Jason Bermas

It has been announced that the autopsy results are in, but the official cause of death report has been delayed by the doctor “pending further information.”  This, of course, comes after a laundry list of strangeness — including no video evidence — surrounding this event and is sure to give rise to more theories about what really happened.

Jason Bermas covers the latest in this “JFK-like event” that is sure to be discussed for generations to come.…

Breaking: SAA Liberates Al-Hobait Strategic Town in Idlib from NATO


11-08-19 03:00:00,

Syrian Arab Army heroes – Archive

After fierce battles with NATO-sponsored terrorists, the Syrian Arab Army manages to clean the strategic hill town of Al-Hobait earlier this morning. The town was with terrorists for 8 years.

Al-Hobait is considered strategic militarily due to its location in the Khan Shaykhun region to the north of Hama countryside and west of M5 vital Damascus – Aleppo artery. Defeating NATO terrorists in this town has a devastating effect on them since the town is inside Idlib province borders.

The SAA is now continuing advancing to the east in the northern Hama countryside where some of the strongholds of NATO’s Al-Qaeda terrorists and to the west cleaning the town of Maghr Hamam on their way.

This latest achievement comes a few days after the SAA cleaned the towns of Zakat and Al-Arbaeen from Erdogan’s most loyal terrorists of Nusra Front & Affiliates. SAA units are now moving towards Ltamenah and Kafr Zita. Ltamenah has symbolic importance being the home town of the commander of Izzat Army, another terrorist group operating directly under the command of Erdogan Forces.

The Syrian Army has also cleaned 5 towns around Khan Shaykhun reaching to 4 kilometers from Al-Tamanah town which will enable to clean the important town of Khan Shaykhun, which is more known for its fake chemical attack that led NATO to directly bomb Syria to support Al-Qaeda in their wars last year.

The Syrian Arab Army has resumed its military operation to clean the province of Idlib and free up to 3 million Syrians from the terrorists of Nusra Front and its affiliates after the failure of the Turkish regime to separate the radical terrorists from the less radical terrorists and to push his loyal terrorists 20 kilometers away from the towns the SAA has secured. The Turkish pariah not only failed the task it committed itself to, but it also went on to further strengthen Nusra Front terrorists with weapons, logistics, intelligence and even with members of other terrorist groups they brought recently to the Idlib front.

[breaking] Huis voor Klokkenluiders stort in

04-04-19 07:44:00,

Een week geleden publiceerde FTM een groot verhaal over de interne strubbelingen bij het Huis voor Klokkenluiders. Vandaag zijn er verrassende ontwikkelingen: alle medewerkers van de afdeling Advies hebben hun vertrek aangekondigd.

Vanmorgen meldt het Algemeen Dagblad dat de voltallige afdeling Advies van het Huis voor Klokkenluiders ontslag wil nemen; dit na onthullingen van FTM en NRC Handelsblad. De vijf vertrekkende medewerkers hebben afgelopen maandag het bestuur van het Huis daarvan op de hoogte gesteld. In het AD spreken zij van ‘een onomkeerbare en onwerkbare situatie’.

FTM en NRC Handelsblad meldden vorige week dat in het recente verleden zowel de bestuursvoorzitter als de directeur van het Huis waren opgestapt vanwege hun betrokkenheid met klokkenluiderszaken in het verleden, die slecht uitpakten voor de melders. Verder schreef FTM dat het Huis sinds de opening in juli 2016 nog geen enkel onderzoek heeft afgerond. Bovendien zijn  klokkenluiders ontevreden over hun behandeling en over de kwaliteit van conceptrapporten. Tot slot bleek dat het bestuur een aanbeveling van een externe onderzoeker om het personeel door te lichten en opnieuw te laten solliciteren niet heeft opgevolgd, omdat zulks ‘bedreigend’ kon zijn voor het zittende personeel.

De onthullingen in FTM en NRC waren de druppel die de emmer deed overlopen

Volgens de vijf medewerkers van de afdeling Advies die nu hun vertrek aankondigen, zijn de problemen binnen het HvK te wijten aan personeel dat ongemotiveerd en ondeskundig is. Ze spreken van een ‘mismatch van personen en functies’. Datzelfde constateerde ook onderzoeker Maarten Ruys, die het Huis al eind 2017 doorlichtte.

De onthullingen in FTM en NRC waren de druppel die de emmer deed overlopen. De vertrekkende medewerkers hadden het bestuur aanvankelijk gevraagd de Tweede Kamer over de interne problemen in te lichten, maar het bestuur vond dat ‘niet op zijn weg liggen’.

Het Huis voor Klokkenluiders heeft twee hoofdafdelingen: Advies en Onderzoek. Bij de afdeling Advies kunnen klokkenluiders uit het bedrijfsleven of de overheid zich melden met een misstand. Vervolgens krijgen ze adviezen over het doen van de melding en de risico’s daarvan. Ook adviseert deze afdeling over de vervolgstappen. Het contact tussen melder en adviseur is strikt vertrouwelijk.

Met het opstappen van de voltallige afdeling Advies staat het Huis voor Klokkenluiders op instorten.

BREAKING: Everyone Who Opposes War Is A Russian Antisemite


15-03-19 08:59:00,

In order to appease the internet censors, today’s Caitlin Johnstone article has been replaced with a breaking report from the National News Conglomerate. NNC: Obey.

Washington, D.C. (NNC) — Following the publication of the results of a groundbreaking new study this week, experts are now reporting that every single person who questions western military interventionism is both an antisemitic bigot and a Russian national.

Research analyst Les Overton is a senior fellow at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Democracy (ASPCD), a Washington, D.C.-based think tank whose motives we can only assume are perfectly truthful and unbiased. He told NNC that the ASPCD’s research clearly shows that the rate of correlation between an individual opposing western foreign policy, harboring a virulent hatred of Jewish people, and being a citizen of the Russian Federation is “at least a hundred percent, if not more.”

“This is not to suggest that all Russians are antisemites or that all antisemites oppose American wars,” Overton reports. “Our research shows only that people who do oppose western military interventionism are both of these things.”

These findings track with revelations exposed by respected foreign policy analyst Max Boot in an article published yesterday in the Washington Post titled “It’s time to retire the ‘neocon’ label“. Boot explains that those who criticize the relentless warmongering of neoconservatism are actually facilitating antisemitism, writing that antiwar voices have been known to use that label “to suggest that Jews are running U.S. foreign policy.”

These findings also help explain the fact that British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and US Congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard and Ilhan Omar have all been found to be arousing suspicion with their irrational affection for Vladimir Putin and irrational disdain for people of Jewish ancestry.

“Take Tulsi Gabbard, a longtime critic of US interventionism,” Overton said while explaining how ASPCD reached its conclusions. “Her affection for Syria’s Bashar al-Assad is well-documented, and Assad, being an ally of Putin, is effectively Russian. This makes Tulsi Gabbard a Russian by proxy, which probably explains why Putin loves her so much.”

“Interestingly, we have also found this same correlation between individuals who believe that poor people should be treated with kindness, and those who believe Palestinians are human beings,” added Overton.

Breaking Our Biggest Taboo – LewRockwell

10-03-19 02:48:00,

Special to

“Tell me who you cannot criticize and I will tell you who is your master”. Attributed to Voltaire.

Saying anything negative about Israel has long been the third rail of US politics and media.  Israel is our nation’s most sacred cow.  Any questioning of its behavior brings furious charges of anti-Semitism and professional oblivion.

I keep in my bookcase a cautionary book, ‘They Dared Speak Out’ written by US senators and congressmen who all lost their positions after rebuking Israel for its mistreatment of Palestinians or daring to suggest that Israel had far too much influence in the US.

Journalists learn this first commandment very early.  Criticize, or even question, Israel at your own peril.   Until recently, we journalists were not even allowed to write there was an ‘Israel lobby.’  It was widely considered Washington’s most powerful lobby group but, until lately, mentioning its name was seriously verboten.

They Dare to Speak Out…

(as of 11:50 EST – Details)

Now, young Democratic stars Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a feisty congresswoman from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, have suddenly broken the taboo and said what dared not be said: there is too much rightwing Israeli influence and there must be justice for Palestine.

Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have come to the defense of Ilhan Omar against the usual charges that she is anti-Semitic.  So have black groups and smaller liberal Jewish groups.  The Democratic Party, that once received half its financial support from Jewish sources, is badly split over the Palestine crisis.  Its old guard is retreating and does not know what to do beyond issuing fiery denunciations of the heretical Miss Omar.  The Democrat Party split comes just at a time when it is trying to bring down President Donald Trump.

Many people seem unaware that Islam is now America’s third largest religion and may soon surpass the number of Jews.  In Canada, Muslims are already the second religion.

Ilhan is not anti-Semitic.  I grew up in New York and New England where vicious anti-Semitism abounded.

Breaking the Gaza Blockade: Message From A Former Israeli Air Force Pilot | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Breaking the Gaza Blockade: Message From A Former Israeli Air Force Pilot | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

29-07-18 07:59:00,

Note to readers: please click the share buttons above  

My name is Yonatan Shapira and I’m an Israeli citizen. I was a captain and a Blackhawk helicopter pilot in the Israeli Air Force. I never shot anyone and was flying mostly rescue missions but nevertheless, I realized that I was part of a terrorist organization. 15 years ago in 2003 I organized a group of 27 air force pilots who publicly refused to continue to take part in the oppression of the Palestinian people.

Since then I’ve been active in different organizations that struggle against the Israeli occupation and apartheid. I am a member of Boycott from Within – Israeli citizens who support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions.

This is my 4th attempt to break the Gaza blockade from the sea.

My message to the Israeli soldiers who are now training and preparing to board our boats and arrest us:

“Think about what you will tell your grandchildren in many years from now and not about what your friends will say about you today. Refuse to take part in this ongoing war crime. Refuse to continue murdering people who are locked in the biggest prison in the world. I was once one of you and I know that among you there are some who can still think. Refuse to be the guards of the Gaza ghetto.”

Breaking: ISIS Terrorists Are Only Present in US-controlled Areas in Syria – Russian MoD

Featured image: Major General Igor Konashenkov (Source: author)

The Islamic State’s (ISIS) last pockets of resistance are located inside areas controlled by the U.S. forces, the Russian Ministry of Defense Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov said this morning.

“As for the current situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, we recommend the Pentagon chief to examine the map showing the situation in this country. All remaining pockets of resistance of Daesh terrorists in Syria are located only in areas controlled by the United States,” Konashenkov said.

The spokesman noted that the Russian Defense Ministry was bewildered by “verbal manipulations” of Mattis regarding the situation in Syria, stressing that the expansion of the Daesh terror group to Syria had become possible due to “criminal omission” of the United States and the international coalition.

The Russian general was responding to U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ claims that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was creating problems in his country by inviting both Iran and Russia to enter Syria.

Furthermore, the Russian MoD’s Spokesperson slammed the U.S.’ ventures in Syria, adding that their weapons often fall into the hands of terrorists.

“All this time Washington focused on financing and direct arms supplies to fictional ‘Syrian opposition’ totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. However, the vast majority of US-supplied arms and ammunition fell into the hands of the Syrian al-Qaeda branch – Nusra Front [terrorist group, banned in Russia] and Daesh, who sought, like Washington, to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government,” Konashenkov said.

BREAKING: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit North Korea tomorrow on invitation from Pyongyang

BREAKING: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit North Korea tomorrow on invitation from Pyongyang

30-05-18 08:50:00,

US President Donald Trump has just lectured NATO on it member’s commitment performance and held a controversial meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin and is next week to receive EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, with trade matters being high up on the agenda.

Juncker is expected to present Trump with a package of proposals to help smooth relations and potentially heal areas of division, particularly those surrounding Europe’s trade relationship with America. Those proposals are precisely what is cropping up as another area of divergence between some members of the EU, specifically France and Germany, just after a major contention on migration has been driving discord within the Union.

This gets down to whether Europe should offer concessions to Trump on trade while Trump is admittedly describing the Union as a ‘foe’ and has initiated a trade spat with the Union by assessing trade tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Europe, spurring retaliatory tariff measures from the EU Commission.

France, specifically, is opposed to any sort of compromise with Trump on the matter, where Trump is perceived as an opponent to the Union and its unity, whereas Germany is economically motivated to seek an end to the trade dispute under the threat of a new round of tariffs emanating from the Trump administration, and is therefore seeking to find some sort of proposal that Trump will accept and therefore back down on his protectionism against the EU, and Germany in particular.

Politico reports:

Only a week before European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker flies to Washington, France and Germany are divided over how much he should offer to U.S. President Donald Trump to end a deepening trade war, say European diplomats and officials.

But, they add, Germany has the upper hand. Berlin is shaping Juncker’s agenda, suggesting three offers that he could take to Trump on July 25 to resolve the dispute, according to people familiar with the plans.

The French are uneasy about the wisdom of such a conciliatory approach, however, and publicly accuse Trump of seeking to splinter and weaken the 28-member bloc, which he has called his “foe.”

Despite Paris’ reservations about giving away too much to the increasingly hostile U.S.

Breaking the Silence

02-04-18 06:18:00,

Twenty-seven writers, journalists, film-makers, artists, academics, former intelligence officers and democrats call on the government of Ecuador in this letter to allow Julian Assange his right of freedom of speech.


If it was ever clear that the case of Julian Assange was never just a legal case, but a struggle for the protection of basic human rights, it is now.

Citing his critical tweets about the recent detention of Catalan president Carles Puidgemont in Germany, and following pressure from the US, Spanish and UK governments, the Ecuadorian government has installed an electronic jammer to stop Assange communicating with the outside world via the internet and phone.

As if ensuring his total isolation, the Ecuadorian government is also refusing to allow him to receive visitors. Despite two UN rulings describing his detention as unlawful and mandating his immediate release, Assange has been effectively imprisoned since he was first placed in isolation in Wandsworth prison in London in December 2010. He has never been charged with a crime. The Swedish case against him collapsed and was withdrawn, while the United States has stepped up efforts to prosecute him. His only “crime” is that of a true journalist — telling the world the truths that people have a right to know.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

Under its previous president, the Ecuadorian government bravely stood against the bullying might of the United States and granted Assange political asylum as a political refugee. International law and the morality of human rights was on its side.

Today, under extreme pressure from Washington and its collaborators, another government in Ecuador justifies its gagging of Assange by stating that “Assange’s behavior, through his messages on social media, put at risk good relations which this country has with the UK, the rest of the EU and other nations.”

This censorious attack on free speech is not happening in Turkey, Saudi Arabia or China; it is right in the heart of London. If the Ecuadorian government does not cease its unworthy action,
