Bei dieser vom Westend-Verlag arrangierten Diskussion wurden eine Reihe von brisanten Themen angesprochen: Die Abkehr vom versprochenen Konzept der gemeinsamen Sicherheit in Europa, einschließlich Russlands, der Bruch des Versprechens, die NATO nicht nach Osten auszudehnen, die Kriegsgefahr, das vergleichsweise geringe Interesse an friedenspolitischen Themen, der aktuelle Streit zwischen Ukraine und Russland, die unselige Rolle unserer Medien. Hier ist das Video. Albrecht Müller.

Adelheid Bahr, die Witwe von Egon Bahr, führte mit einem einfühlsamen Vortrag über das besondere Vermächtnis von Egon Bahr ins Thema ein. Ab Minute 13:50 beginnt die Podiumsdiskussion zum Thema „Chancen und Perspektiven einer neuen Entspannungspolitik in der Tradition von Willy Brandt und Egon Bahr“.

Die Journalistin Gabriele Krone-Schmalz war in der spannenden Zeit der Wende, von August 1987 bis 1991 Korrespondentin der ARD in Moskau. Sie ist eine Kennerin der Beziehungen zwischen West und Ost und der Lage in Russland. Willy Wimmer hat als Bundestagsabgeordneter, als Parlamentarischer Staatssekretär im Verteidigungsministerium und dann als „Aktivist“ der OSZE die Wende mitgestaltet und dann das Umschalten auf Konfrontation früh erkannt und beschrieben. Willy Wimmer hat übrigens an einem Beispiel gezeigt, wie man selbst als Parlamentarischer Staatssekretär des Verteidigungsministeriums belogen wird, wenn es um die besonderen Rechte der USA in Deutschland geht. Albrecht Müller von den NachDenkSeiten hat als Berater und als Wahlkampfchef von Willy Brandt ab 1968 den Beginn und die Umsetzung der Ostpolitik begleitet, später dann als MdB die Wendezeit. Moderiert wurde die Diskussion vom Verleger des Westend Verlages, Markus Karsten.

In der Diskussion kam Interessantes zur Sprache. So zum Beispiel Belege dafür, dass schon eingetreten ist, was zu befürchten steht: Die neue Konfrontation führt zur inneren Verhärtung, auch in Russland. Wo Vertrauen gewachsen war, wächst jetzt Misstrauen. Wo Freundschaften begannen zu blühen, schaukeln sich jetzt neue Feindschaften hoch. Die Kriegsgefahr ist real, keine Stimmungsmache. Eine bittere, aber notwendige Erkenntnis.

Video: The Spider’s Web. Britain’s Second Empire. Corrupting the Global Economy. The British Elites’ Network of Tax Havens – Global Research

Since it was uploaded to YouTube just ten weeks ago, Michael Oswald’s seminal documentary film on Britain and its tax haven empire has gained over 1,000,000 views. “The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire” documents how British elites created a network of tax havens after World War II and the lengths they take today to preserve it – exemplified in a chilling scene where a Jersey police officer harasses and interrupts the filmmakers’ interview with a tax haven whistleblower. Based on Nick Shaxson’s best-selling book Treasure Islands: The Men Who Stole the World, the film delivers a sobering account of Britain’s role in corrupting the global economy.

The documentary is available for free on YouTube in EnglishFrenchGermanItalian and Spanish. Subtitles are available in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Arabic, Korean, Hungarian, English, Turkish and Portuguese.

Director Michael Oswald said about his inspiration for the film

I realized that there was an interesting, coherent and self-contained story that had not been told, the story of Britain’s transformation from a colonial power to a financial power, and the myriad and obscure financial structures created by City of London financial interests that lie at the heart of this transformation.”  (read more here.)

Tax Justice Network’s John Christensen, who co-produced The Spider’s Web, traces his interest in the subject back to the late-1970s when he and various colleagues started to look at London’s role as a global tax haven:

We had no doubt that the City of London was a major player in the process of looting poorer countries of their wealth and in protecting Britain’s secrecy jurisdiction satellites from political attempts – at the United Nations, for example – to rectify the policy and regulatory flaws that enabled capital flight and tax dodging on such an immense scale.” (read more here)

Made on an astonishingly small budget, The Spider’s Web has been acclaimed by reviewers.  Here is a sample of what they’ve said:

Video: Behind the US Attack on Chinese Smartphones – Global Research

video-behind-the-us-attack-on-chinese-smartphones-8211-global-research

05-12-18 03:29:00,

After having imposed heavy taxes on Chinese merchandise – 250 billion dollars – President Trump, at the G-20, accepted a “truce” by postponing further measures, mainly because the US economy has been struck by Chinese retaliation.

But apart from these commercial considerations, there are also some strategic reasons. Under pressure from the Pentagon and the Intelligence agencies, the USA took the decision to forbid the use of Smartphones and telecommunications infrastructures from the Chinese company Huawei, warning that they may potentially be used for espionage, and pressured their allies to do the same.

The warning concerning the danger of Chinese espionage, especially addressed to Italy, Germany and Japan, countries which house the most important US military bases, came from the same US Intelligence agencies which have been spying on the telephone communications of their allies for years, in particular in Germany and Japan. The US company Apple, at one time the undisputed leader in the sector, saw its sales doubled by Huawei (a company owned by its workers as share-holders), which moved up to the world second place behind the South Korean company Samsung. This is emblematic of a general tendency.

The United States – whose economic supremacy is based artificially on the dollar, until now the main currency for monetary reserves and world commerce – has increasingly been overtaken by China, both in capacity and production quality. The New York Times wrote that

“The West was certain that the Chinese approach was not going to work. All it had to do was wait. It’s still waiting. China is planning a vast global network of commerce, investments and infrastructures, which will remodel financial and geopolitical relations”.

This came about above all, though not entirely, along the New Silk Road that China is currently building across 70 Asian, European and African nations.

The New York Times examined 600 projects which have been implemented by China in 112 countries, including 41 oil and gas pipelines, 199 energy centrals, most of them hydro-electric, (including seven dams in Cambodia which supply half of the country’s needs in electricity), 203 bridges, roads and railways, plus several major ports in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and other countries.

All of this is regarded by Washington as “an aggression against our vital interests”,

03-12-18 06:51:00,

The bold moral leadership of newly elected members of Congress like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has me feeling more optimistic about our collective chances of averting climate breakdown than I have in years. But a whole lot of things need to happen very quickly if the political tide is going to shift in time — including finding new ways to engage the public in this fight. In this hopeful moment, I had the opportunity to sit down with one of the few politicians who has consistently focused on this issue — Sen. Bernie Sanders. We spoke at the Sanders Institute Gathering in Burlington, Vermont, this weekend.

Tonight, Sanders will host a town hall on climate change with guests, including Ocasio-Cortez, 350.org founder Bill McKibben, activist and “Big Little Lies” star Shailene Woodley, climate scientist Brenda Ekwurzel, activist and musician Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, and Mayor Dale Ross of deep-red Georgetown, Texas. The event will be streaming live in partnership with progressive media outlets, including The Intercept. You can watch on our Facebook page from 7-8:30 p.m.

Video: Understanding NATO’s War on Yugoslavia. Historic Interview with Sean Gervasi – Global Research

video-understanding-nato8217s-war-on-yugoslavia.-historic-interview-with-sean-gervasi-8211-global-research

02-12-18 07:57:00,

Interview with Professor Sean Gervasi, Institute of International and Economic Problems, Belgrade, Yugoslavia.  

I spoke to Sean Gervasi on several occasions prior to his untimely death in June 1996. His incisive understanding of  the process of breakup of the Yugoslavia, not to mention its aftermath was far-reaching. According to Gary Wilson, “Gervasi saw the breakup of Yugoslavia as an extension of the breakup of the Soviet Union and the first step in a NATO takeover of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He became active in exposing the role of external powers, particularly the U.S. and German governments, in fomenting the civil war in the Balkans.”

With foresight Gervasi predicted the geopolitics of the post-Cold War era. The breakup of Yugoslavia laid the basis for NATO intervention in the Kosovo war in 1999, which in turn was followed by the enlargement of NATO and the conduct of US-NATO wars and military interventions in the Middle East.

Michel Chossudovsky, December 02, 2018

Recorded on February 24th, 1993

Harold Channer (HC): Good evening and welcome very, very much to the conversation. We’re pleased to welcome to the program Sean Gervasi. He is a professor and academic who is concerned with economics and particularly with what is relevant to what we want to talk about tonight. He has just returned from a long stay in in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and knows something of that situation. Sean Gervasi, welcome very, very much to the conversation, and back to New York. Before we go into some detail about what in the world is going on in terms of the Balkans, from your experience there, maybe share a little bit of your own background. You did some economics, you’re interested in economics.

Sean Gervasi (SG): Well, I’m basically an economist. I studied in Europe, came back to graduate school at Cornell, went into the federal government, resigned.

HC: And the Balkans… you had some reason to be concerned with that area particularly in some of your early life experience and so on?

SG: Well, I’d lived a long time in the Mediterranean. My father had been a diplomat posted in the Mediterranean and he covered a number of countries there for quite a long time after the war,

Video: British Special Forces in Ukraine. Alleged Chemical Weapons and Black Ops Against Donbass? – Global Research

video-british-special-forces-in-ukraine.-alleged-chemical-weapons-and-black-ops-against-donbass-8211-global-research

28-11-18 09:05:00,

We bring to the attention of our readers a Donbass report pertaining to the presence of British Special Forces in Ukraine. Yet to be verified these special forces are said to be experts in chemical weapons.  

British military personnel have been present in Ukraine since 2015 involved in training Ukraine military personnel 

On November 21, 2018,  a few days prior to the Kerch Strait Incident, the British Ministry of Defense confirmed that a new contingent of UK special forces were slated to be sent to Ukraine.

According to Deputy commander Eduard Basurin, a representative of  the Ministry of Defense of the DNR,

 “We’ve repeatedly said that an act of terror on a chemical enterprise is being prepared.”

The UK forces are in Ukraine advising Ukrainian forces. “The last of them arrived at Artyomovsk, or as Ukrainians call it, Bakhmut.

They’re British special forces. They’re experts in chemistry. They can cause accidents in this regard and then create media reports about it. Just like the Skripal case.”

The British media have dispelled the Donbass reports regarding the use of chemical weapons by UK special forces against Donbass

Unedited Transcript 

– The British Minister of Defence promised a ship. He also promised to support Ukraine in Donbass. Let’s fast forward to Donbass. Eduard Alexandrovich Basurin is live, The Deputy Commander of the Corps of the Ministry of Defense of the DNR. Do you see collective support from the West or just from the UK? How are they helping the Ukrainians? Does it have any effect on you? Are there advisors or something?

Eduard Basurin: Hello, everyone, hello, Olya.

If we are talking about an effect on me, there’s no such thing yet. But there is an effect on Ukraine. See, we’ve repeatedly said that an act of terror on a chemical enterprise is being prepared. The UK forces Ukraine to do this.

(Alternativ finden Sie das Video auch auf Vimeo)

Zum Inhalt:

In einmaliger Weise ist der Mensch von alters her auf Tatendrang und unbegrenzte Lernfähigkeit angelegt, sonst hätte er sich nicht an die Spitze sämtlicher diesen Planeten bewohnenden Lebewesen stellen können. Nunmehr erfüllen digitale Medien der Menschheit einen fundamentalen Traum: Beherrschung von Zeit und Raum. Erleichterung und Beschleunigung der Lern- und Lebenswelten führen die Gesellschaft zu großen Erfolgen und sie bereichern das Privatleben. Das ist Realität und birgt gleichzeitig eine riesengroße Gefahr in sich:

Sobald die Nutzer digitaler Medien nicht die Oberhand über ihr Tun und Planen behalten, erliegen sie unmerklich einer Cyberattacke auf die Netzwerke ihres Gehirns. Attackiert werden speziell diejenigen Teile, die für die Gedächtnisbildung und kognitiven Leistungen verantwortlich sind. Das kann Sucht, Burnout oder Depression auslösen.

Wer kleinen Kindern die Bewegung vorenthält – warum auch immer – der sorgt für Chaos auf der Baustelle des kindlichen Hirngerüsts, denn die gesamte Kindheit ist gezeichnet von kritischen Phasen, in denen die Reifung von senso-motorischen und assoziativen Funktionssystemen extrem stark von der Umwelt beeinflusst wird. Bildschirm-Medien, ganz gleich ob Smartphones, Tablets oder das gute alte Fernsehgerät, schränken automatisch das Bewegungsverhalten der Kinder ein, weil sie vielfach Kinder vom Spielen in Wäldern, Parks oder auf Sportplätzen abhalten. Das beeinträchtigt in diesem Lebensabschnitt die nötige Hirnreifung, die eine sehr aktive und dynamische Phase der Entwicklung darstellt. Wischen und tippen Kinder dagegen auf Tablets, schadet das auch der Reifung ihrer kognitiven Fähigkeiten. Die flüchtigen Händchen führen keine differenzierten, feinmotorischen Bewegungen aus. Das unterminiert die Vernetzung im Gehirn – und untergräbt langfristig die Entwicklung geistiger Fähigkeiten.

Video: Several European Countries Deliver Chemical Weapons Components to Idlib? Russian Report – Global Research

Video: Several European Countries Deliver Chemical Weapons Components to Idlib? Russian Report – Global Research

28-09-18 05:26:00,

Components of chemical weapons were delivered to the Syrian province of Idlib from several European states, Director of the Department for Arms Non-Proliferation and Control at the Russian Foreign Ministry Vladimir Yermakov stated on September 25. On September 20, Russian Foreign Minisry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated that a threat of staged chemical attack in the province of Idlib still remains. The diplomat stated that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) was supplying its allied militant groups with chemical agents with this purpose.

These statements by the Russian side show that the situation in Idlib still remains complicated and chances of a new escalation are high if militants attempt to sabotage the demilitarization agreement reached earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the Russian-language media speculates that Russia will provide Syria with a batch of short-to-medium range air defense systems additionally to the already announced supply of S-300. These reports remain unconfirmed.

Jordan and Syria may open the Nasib border crossing in the first half of October, according to the Jordanian newspaper al-Ghad. On September 25, Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis announced that the Syrian side of the crossing had been restored.

If true, this development will mark another stage in the restoration of southern Syria after its liberation by government forces earlier this year. This will also allow more Syrian refugees to return to their homes from Jordan.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has ordered the military to pull out four Patriot air defense systems from from Jordan, Kuwait and Bahrain in the Middle East, the Wall Street Journal reported on September 26, citing several senior military officials.

According to speculations sparked by this report, the decision is aimed at boosting the US effort to counter more global “threats” such as China and Russia as Washington shifts its global strategy. Nonetheless, a conflict with Iran and support to Israel are important points of the foreign policy of the current US administration. US President Donald Trump has repeatedly stated this officially. Furthermore, his administration has made a number of steps in this direction. In light of the recent developments over Syria, including the IL-20 incident and a Russian decision to supply an S-300 system to the Syrian military, it is highly unlikely that the US will decrease its military,

Video: Karel van Wolferen en Kees van der Pijl over media en nepnieuws – Geotrendlines

25-09-18 11:56:00,

Het medialandschap verandert razendsnel door de opkomst van talloze weblogs en nieuwssites op het internet. De gevestigde media worstelen met deze verandering, omdat ze minder controle hebben op het verhaal dat mensen dagelijks te lezen krijgen. Ook is het vertrouwen in de gevestigde media afgenomen, omdat men via het internet toegang krijgt tot alternatieve meningen en nieuwsfeiten die niet overeenkomen met berichtgeving in de reguliere media.

In de strijd tussen traditionele media en alternatieve nieuwsbronnen termen als nepnieuws, trollen, propaganda en desinformatie steeds vaker naar voren. Hoe gaan we om met een tijdperk waarin feiten en meningen vaak door elkaar gebruikt worden? En moeten we vrezen voor toenemende censuur als gevolg van nieuwe Europese wetgeving? Een interessant gesprek tussen emeritus hoogleraren Karel van Wolferen en Kees van der Pijl bij Café Weltschmerz.

“As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors. …

Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa var. indica) come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and confusion has been caused by deliberate misinformation.”

On September 11, the US-led coalition and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that the SDF is kicking off a military operation to eliminate the ISIS-held pocket of Hajin in the Euphrates Valley. According to a coalition spokesman, the SDF ground advance will be backed up by coalition air and artillery strikes.

Hajin and nearby villages are the only remaining major ISIS stronghold in Syria, which the terrorist group actively uses to carry out attacks on the eastern and western banks of the Euphrates. Previously, the SDF repeatedly announced that it’s going to clear the pocket. However, by September 11, no real efforts had been taken in this field.

If the Hajin pocket is seized by the SDF, the US-backed fore will finally be able to declare the eastern bank of the Euphrates free from ISIS, at least technically.

More than 100 US Marines were sent as reinforcements to the US—led coalition garrison in the area of al-Tanf, according to a September 8 announcement by the Pentagon. Many MSM sources described this move as a self-defense effort amid the growing tensions between Russia and the US in the war-torn country.

On September 11, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation in Syria stated that militants have already started filming a chemical weapons attack in the city of Jisr al-Shugur in the province of Idlib.

“According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks,” the Center said.

The plot (yet to be fully confirmed and corroborated) reportedly envisages staged scenes showing members of the White Helmets pretending to help civilians “after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances”.

On the same day, during a UN Security Council meeting, the Russian representative Vasily Nebenzya once again emphasized that terrorists in Idlib “must not be shielded because they all are one way or another linked to Al-Qaeda”.

On 8 August, the Liberty Passion docked at the port of Livorno, and on 2 September, the Liberty Promise. On 9 October, they will be followed by the Liberty Pride. The three ships will then return to Livorno, successively, on 10 November, 15 December and 12 January.

These are enormous Ro/Ro ships (Roll-On/Roll-Off – vehicle transporters), 200 metres long. They have 12 decks, each one capable of housing 6,500 automobiles. However, they are not, in fact, carrying vehicles, but tanks. They are part of a US fleet of 63 ships belonging to private companies who, on behalf of the Pentagon, are constantly transporting weapons in a global circuit between ports in the United States, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and Asia.

The main Mediterranean stop is Livorno, because its port is connected to the neighbouring US base of Camp Darby. During a recent visit to the Florence daily ‘La Nazione’, Colonel Erik Berdy, Commander of the US Army garrison in Italy, emphasized the importance of this base.

The logistics base, situated between Pisa and Livorno, constitutes the largest US arsenal outside of the home country. The Colonel did not specify what the content of the 125 bunkers of Camp Darby may be. However, it may be estimated at more than a million artillery projectiles, airborne bombs and missiles, to which should be added thousands of tanks, vehicles and other military material. It can not be excluded that in the base there may have been, there are, or there may be nuclear weapons in the near future.

Source: PandoraTV

Camp Darby, claimed the Colonel, plays a key role by supplying US land and air forces much faster than if they were supplied directly from the USA. The base supplied most of the weapons used for the wars against Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya, and Afghanistan. Since March 2017, with huge ships that make monthly stops at Livorno, the weapons from Camp Darby are continually transported to the ports of Aqaba in Jordan, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern ports in order to be used by US and allied forces in the wars in Syria,

“They say a conspiracy this large could not be kept secret, but most large covert operations are kept secret. People say ‘they’, meaning the Bush Administration, wouldn’t dare for fear they’d be found out. As for being found out by the media, well, what’s to fear so far?”

– Barrie Zwicker, from The Great Conspiracy

As the acclaimed author and scholar Professor Michel Chossudovsky has repeated on several occasions, exposing the truth about 9/11 is key to dismantling the propaganda apparatus that powers the destructive project known as the Global War on Terrorism. But within a larger frame, 9/11 Truth also serves as a reminder of the U.S. National Security State’s capacity to induce support from the masses behind military aggression, the diversion of resources away from programs of social uplift, and the restriction of citizens’ civil liberties in the name of ‘security.’

Humanity will not likely survive a permanent war that will not end in our lifetimes. If this war is built on a false pre-text, it is urgent that the casus beli be subjected to the most unrelenting scrutiny. That is why, after 17 years and two U.S. presidential administrations, Global Research and similar independent sites, continue to highlight the demonstrable flaws in the myth of 9/11 and the ‘War on Terrorism.’

In January 2002, only four months after the terrorist attacks blamed on Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, a seasoned journalist, media critic and critical thinker by the name of Barrie Zwicker became the first broadcaster in the world to challenge the official 9/11 narrative on national television with his seven part series, The Great Deception.

Two and a half years after that effort, Zwicker put out a 70 minute documentary entitled, The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw. This video builds on Zwicker’s previous effort, encompassing some of the most compelling analysis and testimony from a number of independent researchers, including Michael C Ruppert, Webster Tarpley, Paul Thompson and David Ray Griffen, among others.

The film lays out sufficient evidence of U.S.

VIDEO – Eingestürzte Brücken und bombardierte Brücken | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

04-09-18 11:12:00,

« Das Bild ist wirklich apokalyptisch. Es sieht so aus, als sei eine Bombe auf diesen Straßenabschnitt gefallen, der eine Hauptschlagader ist” – so beschrieb ein Journalist die Morandi-Brücke in Genua kurz nach ihrem Einsturz, der das Leben von Dutzenden Menschen zerstörte [1].

Diese Worte erinnern an andere Bilder, die von etwa 40 serbischen Brücken, die 1999 durch NATO-Bombenangriffe zerstört wurden – darunter die Brücke über die Morava in Südserbien, wo zwei Raketen einen Zug trafen und die Passagiere massakrierten. 78 Tage lang starteten 1.100 Flugzeuge, hauptsächlich von italienischen Stützpunkten, die von der Regierung D’Alema geliefert wurden, 38.000 Einsätze und zündeten 23.000 Bomben und Raketen. Sie zerstörten systematisch serbische Strukturen und Infrastrukturen und forderten Tausende von zivilen Opfern. 54 italienische Flugzeuge nahmen an den Angriffen teil, wobei 1.378 Einsätze und Angriffsziele vom US-Kommando angegeben wurden.

“In Anbetracht der Anzahl der beteiligten Flugzeuge waren wir nach den Vereinigten Staaten an zweiter Stelle. Italien ist ein bedeutendes Land, und es sollte keine Überraschung sein, dass wir uns in diesem Krieg engagieren”, erklärte D’Alema.

Im selben Jahr, in dem sie an der endgültigen Zerstörung des jugoslawischen Staates beteiligt war, hat die Regierung D’Alema das öffentliche Eigentum der Società Autostrade (auch Manager der Morandi-Brücke) abgebaut, indem sie einen Teil davon an eine Gruppe von Aktionären übergab und den Rest an der Börse notierte. Die Morandi-Brücke ist unter der Verantwortung eines auf Profit ausgerichteten Systems zusammengebrochen, dasselbe System, das im Zentrum der mächtigen Interessen der NATO steht.

Der Vergleich zwischen den Bildern der eingestürzten Morandi-Brücke und den bombardierten serbischen Brücken, der auf den ersten Blick erzwungen erscheinen mag, ist im Gegenteil sehr begründet.

Erstens sollte die schreckliche Szene der Opfer, die durch den Zusammenbruch unter den Trümmern begraben wurden, uns über die schreckliche Realität des Krieges nachdenken lassen, die uns die großen Medien als eine Art “Kriegsspiel” präsentieren, wobei der Pilot auf die Brücke zielt und die ferngesteuerte Bombe sie in Stücke reißt.

Zweitens sollten wir uns daran erinnern, dass die Europäische Kommission am 28. März einen Aktionsplan vorgelegt hat, der die Instandsetzung und Instandhaltung der EU-Strukturen, einschließlich der Brücken, vorwegnimmt, aber nicht, um sie für die zivile Mobilität sicherer, sondern für die militärische Mobilität effizienter zu machen [2].

In Wirklichkeit wurde dieser Plan vom Pentagon und von der NATO beschlossen,

How Father Jorge Maria Bergoglio supported Argentina’s military junta’s “Dirty War” in the 1970s was known and documented prior to his accession to Vatican.

Image: Father Bergoglio with General Jorge Videla, Argentina, 1970s

The media was complicit through omission. The Catholic hierarchy including the Vatican conclave of “Cardinal Electors” turned a blind eye. They were fully aware of Bergoglio’s insidious role. 

The military government headed by General Jorge Videla acknowledged in a Secret Memo that Father Bergoglio had (without evidence) accused two priests of having established contacts with the guerilleros, and for having disobeyed the orders of the Church hierarchy (Conflictos de obedecencia).  The document acknowledges that the “arrest” of the two priests, who were taken to the torture and detention center at the Naval School of Mechanics, ESMA, was based on information transmitted by Father Bergoglio to the military authorities.

María Marta Vásquez, her husband César Lugones (see picture right) and Mónica Candelaria Mignone allegedly “handed over to the death squads” by Jesuit “Provincial” Jorge Mario Bergoglio are among the thousands of “desaparecidos” (disappeared) of Argentina’s “Dirty War”, which was supported covertly by Washington under “Operation Condor”. (See memorialmagro.com.ar)

The accusations directed against Bergoglio regarding the two kidnapped Jesuit priests and six members of their parish are but the tip of the iceberg. “La punta dell’iceberg”.

While Bergoglio was an important figure in the Catholic Church, he was certainly not alone in supporting the Military Junta.

Author’s Note

From the outset of the military regime in 1976, I was Visiting Professor at the Social Policy Institute of the Universidad Nacional de Cordoba, Argentina. My major research focus at the time was to investigate the social impacts of the deadly macroeconomic reforms adopted by the military Junta. 

I was teaching at the University of Cordoba during the initial wave of assassinations which also targeted progressive grassroots members of the Catholic clergy.

Videoüberwachung in Bahnhöfen: 13 Milliarden für ein paar Kameras

Videoüberwachung in Bahnhöfen: 13 Milliarden für ein paar Kameras

30-08-18 12:05:00,

Videoüberwachung im öffentlichen Raum kommt uns alle teuer zu stehen. In 900 Bahnhöfen in Deutschland sind rund 6.000 Kameras installiert, die im Kampf gegen die Kriminalität helfen sollen. Allein die Installation der Überwachungsinfrastruktur kostete wohl Milliardenbeträge, wie eine Antwort der Bundesregierung auf eine Anfrage des Linken-Abgeordneten Niema Movassat zeigt (hier im Volltext als pdf).

Wir finanzieren uns fast vollständig aus Spenden von Leserinnen und Lesern. Unterstütze unsere Arbeit mit einer Spende oder einem Dauerauftrag.

Nach Angaben des Bundesministerium des Innern, für Bau und Heimat kostet die Ausstattung eines großen Bahnhofs mit moderner Videoüberwachungstechnik im Durchschnitt 1,5 Millionen Euro und ein mittelgroßer Bahnhof zumindest 500.000 Euro. Der Linken-Abgeordnete Movassat rechnet auf Basis der Angaben vor, dass Videokameras in den 900 Bahnhöfen die öffentliche Hand zwischen mindestens 450 Millionen Euro und maximal 1,35 Milliarden Euro kosteten. Die tatsächlichen Kosten für die Videoüberwachung in Bahnhöfen ist aber noch weitaus höher, wenn man Ausgaben für Wartung und Sichtung des Materials miteinrechnet.

Videoüberwachung im öffentlichen Raum ist ein heiß umstrittenes Thema. Die Bundesregierung nennt sie in ihrer Antwort „ein wichtiges Instrument zur Gefahrenabwehr und zur Verfolgung von Straftaten“. Bürgerrechtler weisen aber seit Jahren darauf hin, dass die Überwachung grundrechtlich problematisch ist und Kriminalität bestenfalls an andere Orte verschiebt, aber nicht verhindert. Trotzdem wird immer weiter aufgerüstet: Bundespolizei und Deutsche Bahn planen als Teil des „10-Jahre-Programm Video“ weitere Ausgaben von 40 Millionen Euro für die Ausstattung von Bahnhöfen mit modernsten Kameras.

Kameras gegen Kleinkriminalität

Eine volle Liste der überwachten Bahnhöfe möchte das Innenministerium nicht veröffentlichen. Die Liste wurde in der Antwort an Movassat als Verschlusssache deklariert, mit der Begründung, dass diese Kriminellen die Planung von Straftaten an Bahnhöfen erleichtern könnte. Das Ministerium erklärte zudem, dass 2017 durch die Videokameras in Deutschland 1.943 Delikte aufgeklärt werden konnten. Die Aufstellung zeigt, dass es sich dabei großenteils um Körperverletzungen (789 Delikte), Diebstähle (295) und Sachbeschädigungen (99) handelt – dies macht deutlich, dass die Kameras vor allem zur Aufklärung von Kleinkriminalität genutzt werden.

Linken-Abgeordneter Niema MovassatLinken-Abgeordneter Movassat Alle Rechte vorbehalten Niema Movassat

Linken-Politiker Movassat betont gegenüber netzpolitik.org, dass das Geld für Videokameras an anderer Stelle weitaus mehr gesellschaftlichen Nutzen gezeigt hätten: „Ein starker Sozialstaat, Präventionsarbeit und mehr Personal bei der Polizei und Justiz sind ein besserer Garant für die Sicherheit als jede Videokamera,

Militant groups are constantly violating the ceasefire regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone, the Russian Centre for Reconciliation said in a statement on August 21. According to the statement, the ceasefire were violated in at least 17 villages and settlements in western Aleppo, northern Latakia and northern Hama.

The Center also said that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) is sabotaging any peaceful dialogue between the opposition and the government as well as has started preparation for own offensive on government positions in southern Idlib.

Abu Mohammad al-Jolani, a leader of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, visited a contact line between militants and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Latakia. The appearance of al-Jolani in the area once again shows that the terrorist group remains the most powerful force in the militant-held part of Idlib, Aleppo and Latakia provinces. Earlier some powers involved in the conflict argued that there is no Hayat Tahrir al-Sham presence in these areas.

While the SAA is deploying additional reinforcements in northern Hama and Latakia preparing for expected battle against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in northwestern Syria, the US, the UK and France have once again resumed their propaganda campaign to accuse the Syrian government of carrying out chemical attacks against civilians.

On August 21, three countries released a joint statement condemning the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Damascus government.

“As Permanent Members of the Security Council, we reaffirm our shared resolve to preventing the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, and for holding them accountable for any such use,” the statement said adding that the US, the UK and France “will respond appropriately to any further use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime” in fact threatening Syria with new attacks.

Experts expect that if the Idlib operation of the SAA is started, the chemical weapons issue may be once again used by militants and their supporters to justify military actions against government forces by foreign powers.

Transcript – Interview with Dr. Helen Caldicott, August 15, 2018

Global Research: I wanted to start our conversation with a recent article that you wrote in relation to a rather shocking incident. They found out that a number of airmen from F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming had been implicated in operating an LSD drug ring. One of the implicated personnel said that he had been feeling… had these feelings of paranoia and fear, and another one said he could not have responded in the wake of a nuclear security emergency.

So, I know that you’ve looked into the stringent protocols or the rigorous… supposedly rigorous protocols that are supposed to guard against any kind of a tragic accident resulting.

Video: First Iraq, Then Iran: U.S “Intelligence” Copied and Pasted Off the Internet | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Fake intelligence as well as plagiarized quotations had been slipped into an official intelligence report pertaining to Iraq’s WMD presented to the UN Security Council by Secretary of State Colin Powell on February 5, 2003. This was the report used by the Bush Administration to justify the March 203 invasion of Iraq.

“I would call my colleagues’ attention to the fine paper that the United Kingdom distributed . . . which describes in exquisite detail Iraqi deception activities.” (Colin Powell, UN Security Council, February 5, 2003) 

Powell was referring to “Iraq Its Infrastructure Of Concealment, Deception And Intimidation”, published on January 30, 2003.

Powerful and Irrefutable evidence presented by Secretary of State Colin Powell, said the Washington Post February 6)

AFTER SECRETARY OF STATE Colin L. Powell’s presentation to the United Nations Security Council yesterday, it is hard to imagine how anyone could doubt that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction. Mr. Powell left no room to argue seriously that Iraq has accepted the Security Council’s offer of a “final opportunity” to disarm. And he offered a powerful new case that Saddam Hussein’s regime is cooperating with a branch of the al Qaeda organization that is trying to acquire chemical weapons and stage attacks in Europe. Mr. Powell’s evidence, including satellite photographs, audio recordings and reports from detainees and other informants, was overwhelming. Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr., the senior Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, called it “powerful and irrefutable.” Revealing those tapes and photographs had a cost, as Iraq will surely take countermeasures. But the decision to make so much evidence public will prove invaluable if it sways public opinion here and abroad. At a minimum, it will stand as a worthy last effort to engage the United Nations in facing a threat that the United States could, if necessary, address alone or with an ad-hoc coalition.

Damning evidence refuting Colin Powell’s official intelligence report was revealed by Cambridge Lecturer Dr. Glen Rangwala (image right) on  Britain’s Channel 4 TV following Secretary of State Colin Powell’s historic Iraq WMD presentation to the UN Security Council:

According to Rangwala, the  British intelligence document was fake. It had not been prepared by British intelligence.

Video: Suppressed Evidence. “Machine Gun Like Holes”, Malaysian Airlines MH17 Was Not Brought Down By a BUK Missile | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Video: Suppressed Evidence. “Machine Gun Like Holes”, Malaysian Airlines MH17 Was Not Brought Down By a BUK Missile | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

21-07-18 01:02:00,

Click image below to view Michel Chossudovsky’s video presentation under the auspices of The International Movement for a JUST World, JUST Malaysia

The evidence amply confirms that Malaysian Airlines MH17 was not brought down by a surface to air missile. It was brought down by military aircraft. 

The U.S and its allies continue to accuse Russia and the Donbass separatists of having brought down the plane with a surface to air missile.

IT’S A LIE. The Dutch investigation has been twisted. The families of the victims have been misled. 

“Machine Gun Like Holes”

The shrapnel marks should be distinguished from the small entry and exit holes “most likely that of a 30 millimeter caliber projectile” fired from a military aircraft. These holes could not have been caused by a missile explosion as hinted by the MSM and the “official” investigation.

While the MSN is saying that the “shrapnel like holes” can be caused by a missile, the OSCE has confirmed the existence of what it describes as “machine gun like holes”, without however acknowledging that these cannot be caused by a missile.

In this regard, the GSh-302 firing gun operated by an Su-25 is able to fire 3000 rpm which explains the numerous entry and exit holes.

Click image below to view Michel Chossudovsky’s presentation

The Dutch Safety Board dispels the gun-like holes, stating that these were the consequence of the explosion of the surface to air missile.

The government of the Netherlands issued an official statement, without evidence:

The Netherlands and Australia hold Russia responsible for its part in the downing of flight MH17. The government took a decision on this matter, on the proposal of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Stef Blok. Our two countries have informed Russia of their decision.

‘The downing of flight MH17 caused unimaginable suffering,’ said Dutch foreign minister Stef Blok. ‘The government has always said that the truth surrounding the MH17 disaster had to be brought to light and that justice must be achieved for the victims and their next of kin. The Netherlands has the support of the international community in this respect.

DIMITRI LASCARIS: This is Dimitri Lascaris, reporting for The Real News Network from the port of Naples, Italy. We are seated in front of the ships of the Gaza flotilla, the Freedom Flotilla, which have been docked here for a couple of days, and I’m pleased to be joined today by Yonatan Shapira. Yonatan is a former rescue pilot in the Israeli Air Force. He’s also a founding member and prominent activist of the Israeli movement Boycott From Within.

And I’d like to thank you very much for joining us today, Yonatan.

YONATAN SHAPIRA: Thank you. Thank you for coming.

DIMITRI LASCARIS: So I’d like to start by talking about your experiences within the Israeli Air Force, and your decision ultimately to become a dissenter from military service. Could you tell us about that?

YONATAN SHAPIRA: Well, there is a long story to tell here, but I’ll just try to say in a few words that in 2003, after more than 10 years of service in the Israeli Air Force, I was a Blackhawk helicopter pilot doing rescues and flying soldiers, and doing everything that I was asked. I realized together with other friends in the air force that we are fighting for the wrong side, and we are part of an organization that commits a crime against innocent Palestinians, and we do not want to be part of it anymore. So together with a group of about 27 pilots from all different squadrons of the Israeli air force, attack pilots, rescue pilots like me and others, veterans and active, we send this letter to our commander and the whole society in Israel telling them that we are no longer willing to obey the orders and be part of this illegal and criminal, immoral, occupation. That’s what started my life as an activist fifteen years ago, on the eve of the Jewish year, Rosh Hashanah.

17-07-18 12:30:00,

Note to readers: please click the share buttons above  

The West’s “Regime Change” war against the legitimate government in Syria, based upon fake humanitarian pretexts, is a war of Supreme International War Crimes, packed in lies and deceptions. 

Mark Taliano and Tate Ulsaker unpack the lies and point at our complicity on “Truthseeker’s Path”.

As Christians in the West, through our political passivity and quiescence, we are offering tacit consent to terrorists in Syria who slaughter and ethnically cleanse Christians — in the land which gave birth to Christianity.

Beneath the lie of “freedom and democracy”, we are giving consent to undemocratic terrorist mercenaries who are and have been destroying Syria – against the will of Syrians. We are giving consent to chaos, totalitarianism, and fundamentalist, distorted interpretations of Sharia Law.

Under the false pretext of a “War on Terror” we are supporting ISIS and al Qaeda.

In the name of “helping refugees”, we are creating refugees.

We are impoverishing ourselves, and the entire world, by supporting the War Machine.

The policymakers who have successfully fabricated consent for their megalomaniacal and criminal ventures are hollow men and women, empty shells. And we are duty bound to resist.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor MH17 DOOFPOT

Onderstaand het  verdwenen filmpje over de MH17 wat je  niet mag zien.. Dit filmpje is overal op het internet weggehaald.

MH17 banned video.. Waarschijnlijk omdat de waarheid te hard is.. Het verdwenen filmpje over de MH17 mag je niet zien.. Dit filmpje is overal op het internet weggehaald.. Maar revolutie Europa heeft de complete versie binnen gehaald.Ik vraag iedereen om dit filmpje zoveel mogelijk te delen..

Geplaatst door Revolutie Europa op donderdag 7 juni 2018

Volgens ooggetuigen van het dichtsbijzijnde dorp, in de omgeving waar de ramp gebeurde, zeiden (bijna alle dorpelingen) dat ze voor de explosie een militair vliegtuig in de lucht gezien en gehoord hebben!

In een interview met 2 dames uit dorp, blijkt wel dat ze bijna zeker zijn dat ze een militair vliegtuig gezien hebben wat onder de MH17 vloog! Vraag is van wie was dat vliegtuig? Lijkt mij Oekraïne, want het is bijna uitgesloten dat de opstandelingen een militair vliegtuig tot hun beschikking hadden!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor MH17 DOOFPOT

De video , is later van het internet verwijderd, maar met, dank aan de Revolutie Europa, is het boven water gekomen en moet snel viral gemaakt worden, voordat het dus weer totaal verbannen wordt!

De video is in het begin gemaakt, direct na het ongeluk!

Mijn persoonlijke mening is en blijft dat NIET Rusland of de OEKRAÏNE schuldig is, als je de schuldvraag zo wilt stellen, maar Maleysia Airlines en de toezicht burgerluchtvaart, oftewel de Nederlandse regering, het orgaan toezicht burgerluchtvaart valt onder het ministerie van Justitie zijn de echte schuldigen. Ik kan natuurlijk niet op de stoel van de rechter gaan zitten, maar een goed nadenkende burger zou tot deze conclusie moeten komen!

VIDEO. Die Kunst des Krieges. Bannon drängt auf italienische «Souveränität» von Brüssel, nicht von Washington | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

01-06-18 06:46:00,

Steve Bannon – Der ehemalige Stratege von Donald Trump, Theoretiker des Nationalpopulismus, drückte seine enthusiastische Unterstützung für die Allianz mit der 5-Sterne-Liga-Bewegung für “die Regierung des Wandels” aus. In einem Interview (Sky TG24, 26. Mai) sagte er: “Die grundlegende Frage in Italien im März war die Frage der Souveränität. Das Ergebnis der Wahlen war, diejenigen Italiener ins Amt zu bringen, die Souveränität und Kontrolle über ihr Land wiedererlangen wollen. Zieht einen Schlussstrich unter die Regeln, die aus Brüssel kommen “.

Aber das heißt nicht “Schluss mit den Regeln, die aus Washington kommen”.

Es ist nicht nur die Europäische Union, die Druck auf Italien ausübt, um dessen politische Entscheidungen zu lenken, dominiert von den mächtigen Wirtschafts- und Finanzkeisen, insbesondere Deutschland und Frankreich, die einen Bruch der “Regeln” befürchten, die ihren Interessen dienen.

Starker Druck auf Italien wird, in einer weniger offensichtlichen, aber nicht weniger aufdringlichen Art, durch die Vereinigten Staaten ausgeübt, die einen Bruch der “Regeln” fürchten, die Italien ihren wirtschaftlichen und strategischen Interessen unterordnen.

Dies ist Teil der Politik, die Washington durch verschiedene Verwaltungen und mit unterschiedlichen Methoden gegenüber Europa anwendet und das selbe Ziel verfolgt: Europa unter amerikanischem Einfluss zu halten.

Ein grundlegendes Instrument dieser Strategie ist die NATO. Der Vertrag von Maastricht begründet in Art. 42, dass die EU “die Verpflichtungen einiger Mitgliedstaaten achtet, die ihre gemeinsame Verteidigung durch die North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) realisiert sehen. Und das Protokoll 10 zur Zusammenarbeit stellt fest, dass die NATO “die Grundlage der Verteidigung” der Europäischen Union bleibt.

Heute sind 21 der 27 EU-Länder (nach dem Brexit), mit rund 90% der Bevölkerung der Union, Teil der NATO, deren “Regeln” es den USA erlaubt, seit 1949 die Position des Obersten Alliierten Befehlshabers in Europa inne zu halten sowie alle anderen Hauptbefehligungen; sie erlauben den Vereinigten Staaten, die politischen und strategischen Entscheidungen des Bündnisses zu bestimmen, indem Sie unter dem Tisch Vereinbahrungen treffen, insbesondere mit Deutschland, Frankreich und Großbritannien, und Sie dann vom Nordatlantikrat billigen lassen, in dem es nach den «Regeln» der NATO keine Abstimmung oder Mehrheitsentscheidung gibt, sondern in dem Entscheidungen immer einstimmig getroffen werden.

Der Beitritt der osteuropäischen Länder in die NATO – ehemals Mitglieder des Warschauer Pakts, der Jugoslawischen Föderation und auch der UdSSR – hat es den Vereinigten Staaten ermöglicht,

Video: The European Union: Part of America’s Imperial Project

First published by Global Research in July 2016

The British people’s decision to leave the European Union shocked the political establishment across Europe and around the globe.

Now, Professor Michel Chossudovsky exposes the EU as the imperial project that it always was, and the growing movement against EU domination as an anti-imperial movement of world historical importance. 

The EU is a Cold War Construct, a US imperial project formulated by the Washington Consensus. The growing movement against EU domination is an anti-imperial initiative of Worldwide significance.

It is also a movement against neoliberalism

Video: The 2008-2009 US Treasury Fraud and the Wall Street Banker Bailouts | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Published in September 2009

Michel Chossudovsky, the director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, sits down with The Corbett Report to discuss the real meaning of the banker bailouts.

The banks lend money to the government and with the money they lend to the government, the Treasury finances the bailout.

In turn, the banks impose conditionalities on the management of the US public debt. They dictate how the money should be spent.

The recipient banks are the beneficiaries as well as the creditors. As creditors, they will oblige the government a) to slash expenditures b) to run up the public debt through the issuing of treasury bills and government bonds.

This public debt crisis is all the more serious because the US federal government does not control monetary policy. All public debt operations go through the Federal reserve, which is in charge of monetary policy, acting on behalf of private financial interests. The government as such has no authority over money creation. This means that public debt operations essentially serve the interests of the banks.”

The stated objective of the bank bailout programs is to alleviate the banks’ burden of bad debts and non-performing loans. In actuality what is happening is that these massive amounts of money are being used by a handful of institutions to consolidate their position in global banking.

The exposure of the banks, largely the result of derivative trade, is estimated in the tens of trillions of dollars, to the extent that the amounts and guarantees granted by the Treasury and the Fed will not resolve the crisis. Nor are they intended to resolve the crisis.

The mainstream media suggests that the banks are being nationalized as a result of TARP, In fact, it is exactly the opposite: the State is being taken over by the banks, the State is being privatized. The establishment of a Worldwide unipolar financial system is part of the broader project of the Wall Street financial elites to establish the contours of a world government.

In a bitter irony, the recipients of the bailout under TARP and Obama’s proposed $750 billion aid to financial institutions are the creditors of the federal government.

Yes, the blockchain is truly revolutionary.

Yes, bitcoin is Tulipmania 2.0.

Yes, cryptocurrency is a nail in the coffin of the bankster parasites.

Yes, digital currency is a tool of the totalitarian tyrants.

No, these statements are not contradictory.

But don’t worry if you think they are. You’re just a victim of “The Bitcoin Psyop.”
