“The Terrorists R Us.” The Islamic State “Big Lie” | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

What is not mentioned in the media reports is that the heads of State and heads of government  who have endorsed America’s campaign against the Islamic State, advised by their respective secret services,  are fully aware that US intelligence is the unspoken architect of the Islamic State, which is part of a vast network of  US supported “jihadist” terrorist entities.

Countries are either coerced into supporting the US sponsored resolution or they are complicit in the US terror agenda.Lest we forget, Saudi Arabia, Qatar,  have been financing and training the ISIL terrorists on behalf of the United States.  Israel is harboring the Islamic State (ISIL) in the Golan Heights, NATO in liaison with the Turkish high command has since March 2011 been involved in coordinating the recruitment of  the jihadist fighters dispatched to Syria. Moreover, the ISIL brigades in both Syria and Iraq are integrated by Western special forces and military advisers.

All this is known and documented, yet not a single head of state or head of government has had the courage to point to the absurdity of the US sponsored United Nations Security Council resolution, which was adopted unanimously on September 24.“Absurdity” is an understatement. What we are witnessing is a criminal undertaking under UN auspices.

While international diplomacy is often based on deception, US foreign policy lies are no longer credible. What we are witnessing is a total breakdown of established diplomatic practice.   The “Forbidden Truth” is that the Islamic State is an instrument of Washington, a US ” intelligence asset”. ISIL is not an independent entity, nor is it an “outside enemy” which threatens global security, as conveyed by the Western media.While everybody knows this, the big lie prevails. The Lie becomes the Truth.

IT IS TIME: Right What is Wrong; See The Perfection, Create It

Many things and human systems seem to be inside out, upside down and backwards, and they are in the physical realm.

I woke up from a dream, where the backwards and upside down was ‘righted’ and put into Divine Order, as easily as one wakes from a nightmare dream. What power do we have as spiritual beings, living in a physical world that is literally created by ‘dreaming’ it, feeling it, thinking it and speaking it?

Now is the time to ‘see’ and FEEL ALL righted, put into Divine Order, and all humanity living in harmony with Nature and Natures laws.

Those who can ‘see’ and feel energy need to work with that energy NOW.

All of physical creation comes from energy and goes back to energy. Those who ‘see’ on this level need to start working on this level DAILY. If you are a Rainbow Warrior and/or Light Worker, you know who you are. It does not take many.

Just like a single small candle can light up a huge completely pitch black cave, BE the light.

Have faith. Feel and SEE plus FEEL the LOVING PEACEFUL perfection in all things, and in all people.

“See” the Oneness that is in all, through all.

This is a TEST. Now is the TIME!

Call in the armies of angels to do all they can on all levels and in all ways, via grace and with angelic divine power. to create the Oneness.

Ask them to bring Heaven to Earth.

Command them as the Rainbow Warrior and LIght WOrker you are.

Ask to be shown what do to and what do say, what to feel, what to think, where to go Daily.

Whatever that answer is; that is YOUR part in the divine plan.

EVERYONE has a part to play. If you don’t know your part, ask.

Focus on staying in the moment and in your heart.

Be spiritually ruthless in terms of sacrificing whatever is needed to accomplish the goal and stay in the heart.

quote love Jimi Hendrix Shift Of The Ages

Source/credit; The Shift Of The Ages

THe POwer Of LOve WIll Overcome, Be THat POwer.

If you get stressed, worried or go into fear, focus on the breath.

Breathe in and out. Focus on the breath. Focus on the feeling in your heart.

Breathe in love, breathe out gratitude for the PERFECTION.

Hold the HIGH GROUND, pull Heaven To EARTH. NOW is the time.

The ONENESS Is Being Birthed Through YOU.

The Long-Hidden Saudi-9/11 Trail – Consortiumnews

Our government’s relationship to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is no different than an addict’s relationship to heroin. Much like a heroin addict who will lie, cheat and steal to feed his vice, certain members of our government will lie, cheat and steal to continue their dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation and its leaders from the inside out.

The World Trade Center’s Twin Towers burning on 9/11. (Photo credit: National Park Service)When CIA Director John Brennan states that he believes the 29 pages prove that the government of Saudi Arabia had no involvement in the 9/11 attacks, recognize that John Brennan is not a man living in reality — he is delusional by design, feeding and protecting his Saudi vice.

When Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, Anne W. Patterson, testifies — under oath — that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an ally that does everything they can to help us fight against Islamic terrorism, recognize that her deep, steep Saudi pandering serves and protects only her Saudi vice.Read the 29 pages yourself and know the facts. Do not let any person in our government deny the damning reality of the 29 pages. And as you read the 29 pages remember that they were written during 2002 and 2003. President George W. Bush did not want the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia investigated

Nice Attacker sent $100,000 to his family in Tunisia, prior to driving attack. He had a low paying job.

“From 2002 to 2004 he had problems that led to a nervous breakdown,” his father Mohamed Mondher Lahouaiej Bouhlel told several French channels in an interview outside his home, while brandishing his son’s clinical evaluations before the cameras.“He’d get angry and shout and break everything around him. He was violent and very ill. We took him to the doctor and he was put on drugs. Whenever there was a crisis, we took him back again. He was always alone. Always silent, refusing to talk. Even in the street, he wouldn’t greet people.”According to his father, after moving to France, Lahouaiej Bouhlel had “no connection with religion. He didn’t fast or keep Ramadan. He drank. He even took drugs.”In what may not be a coincidence, the men responsible for the Paris attacks last November also had a similar history of low-paying jobs, petty crime, drinking, and gambling, before apparently rapidly converting to the Islamist cause just months before their deaths.

Snall nuclear reactors – doubtful future, and are they needed anyway?

Antinuclear

SMRs-mirageFOR GENERAL ATOMICS, SMALLER NUCLEAR PLANTS ARE BEAUTIFUL, San Diego Union Tribune  But can its technology work? And is it even needed? BY ROB NIKOLEWSKI July 15, 2016 The scientists and engineers at General Atomics think the future of nuclear energy is coming on the back of a flatbed truck.

And the leadership at the San Diego-based company, which has been developing nuclear technologies for more than 60 years, has already spent millions in the expectation that its ambitious plans for the next generation of reactors will actually work.

“We have technology that we think is going to qualitatively change the game,” saidChristina Back, vice president of nuclear technologies and materials at General Atomics……..it’s designed to produce a reactor that’s so compact that the company’s handout material shows it being transported by tractor-trailer.

But EM² is still a long way from becoming a day-to-day reality in a fast-changing energy landscape.

Agencies Fail to Identify, Track, Penalize, or Deter Unauthorized Livestock Grazing on Public Lands According to a New GAO Report | GarryRogers Nature Conservation

GR.–U. S federal land management agencies knowingly allow damage to public land so that ranchers and loggers can make profits harvesting forage and timber.  Excesses that violate agency rules are not penalized.  This needs to stop.  Perhaps criminal charges should be brought against the heads of the Department of Agriculture and the Department of the Interior.

Florida nuclear plant operator sued for polluting drinking water — RT America

Environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against Florida Power & Light Co., operator of the Turkey Point nuclear facility, saying that the company violated the Clean Water Act by discharging contaminants from the plant, impacting nearby drinking water.The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) and the Tropical Audubon Society filed a lawsuit in US District Court of Southern Florida, accusing Florida Power & Light (FPL), the largest utility in the state, of allowing a canal cooling system at Turkey Point Power Plant, located south of Miami, to pollute Biscayne Bay and the Biscayne Aquifer, a source of drinking water for more than 3 million people. Turkey Point has two nuclear reactors that are cooled by the canal system.

Blue Ridge Naturalist: Pesticides Are a Danger to All Life | Crozet Gazette

First of all, the idea of shaping poison bait into something that many different kinds of animals would think they could eat is horribly shortsighted. It’s akin to creating candy-shaped poison to be used in the home where a child might mistake it for a treat.Additionally, this bait has been given “an attractive smell for hungry moles,” which means any animal able to smell it within a mole tunnel will be enticed to dig it up.  Raccoons, skunks, and bears have a keen sense of smell and habitually dig up soil to feed upon underground critters.Pets have sometimes been the unintended victims of pesticides, which people find abhorrent. Yet society has accepted the use of poisons to kill wildlife of every sort.  What has happened to our humanity that most people accept the willful poisoning of these creatures when it’s terribly mean-spirited to cause any living being to die an excruciatingly painful death?

Utility clean energy rankings reveal ‘unprecedented shift’ in power sector paradigms | Utility Dive

Even among laggards, there’s a growing consensus that renewables are at the center of the 21st century energy system

For many utilities, policy is “no longer the only driver” of clean energy adoption, Ceres reports. While mandates have accounted for 60% of renewables growth to date, utilities’ portfolio mixes are now also being pushed toward renewables by big corporate and institutional customers with ambitious clean energy and sustainability goals.

Corporate members of the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance, recently allied with IOU trade group the Edison Electric Institute, share the goal of adding 60 GW of private sector contracted renewables to the grid by 2025, Ceres notes.

Recent tax credit extensions for renewable energy and higher renewables mandates in California, Hawaii, New York, Oregon, and Vermont are expected to add momentum to utility renewable growth, the report added. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts utility-scale renewables to lead new U.S. power generation in 2016 and 2017, researchers noted.

The channel was able to resume streaming, but the servers were attacked again after some time.

We received a major DDoS attack when the Turkish coup started,The RT website have been targeted by a number of DDoS attacks. In September 2014, the site was subjected to the biggest DDoS attack in its history, which was repelled by its tech specialists nonetheless.

Previous attacks were launched against the site in February 2013, when RT.com ceased functioning for six hours, and in August 2012, when both RT International and RT Spanish websites were attacked. Hacker group AntiLeaks, opposing the Wikileaks project launched by Julian Assange, claimed responsibility for that attack.

Russia versus NATO’s Gladio 2.0: “Turkish Jihad” from China to Syria | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Turkey: A wholly-owned subsidiary of the CIA since 1945The seamless transition from Gladio to Gladio 2.0 is best illustrated by NATO member Turkey, which has the edge over other NATO members in this new Western intelligence ‘game’ because it has a large Muslim population and is strategically situated to contain Russian access to, and influence in, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. The Turkish branch of covert CIA Gladio operations began on September 27th 1952, when the Tactical Mobilization Group (STK) (special operations department of the Turkish military) was created with the consent of Brigadier-General Daniş Karabelen of Turkey’s National Defense Supreme Council. Karabelen was one of sixteen soldiers (including Alparslan Türkeş) who had been sent to the United States in 1948 for training in special warfare (assassinations, bombings etc.) During their training several were directly recruited into the CIA.In 1965 these same men formed the core of Turkey’s Special Warfare Department, which replaced the STK. During the 1970s, the Special Warfare Department was run by General Kemal Yamak. In his memoirs, Yamak stated that the United States had set aside around $1m for weapons for the group. This CIA organisation within Turkey was effectively a parallel government or ‘deep state’, and it was only when Yamak asked then Prime Minister Bülent Ecevit for more cash for his operations that Ecevit actually became aware of the operation’s existence. Not wanting to expose to his fellow ministers that Turkey had no real sovereignty to speak of, Ecevit suggested that the organization seek support from Europe. So Yamak contacted generals from the United Kingdom and France, from whom he received a positive response.In 1992 this Special Warfare Department was renamed the “Special Forces Command”, although it remains largely controlled by the CIA to this day.Concurrently with this complete subversion of Turkey’s military hierarchy, the CIA also began funding Turkey’s civilian intelligence agency – the ‘National Intelligence Organization‘ – in which it maintained a cadre of moles, as acknowledged in 1977 by its former deputy director – and CIA recruit – Sabahattin Savasman.

Coup Against Wannabe-Sultan Failed – Beware The Aftermath

The plotters’ major mistakes were:to not capture Erdogan and the leaders of his political and security organizations,to not shut down all means of mass communication, especially the Internet, except those under their strict control,to not put out a trusted public face to represent the coup.

Erdogan escaped and could orchestrate the counter to the coup. He could continue to communicate with his security management, foreign politicians and his supporters. Without any well known alternative leader the public had only Erdogan to follow.

The amateurish behavior of the coup plotter opens the question of who ran this show. Was this, as some asserted early on, an Erdogan plot to seize more power?

There are three possible motives/perpetrators behind this coup:the Islamic movement following the preacher Fetullah Gülen, a former Erdogan ally and now arch-enemy who lives in the U.S. and has CIA relations;the old Kemalist secularist movement in the military and deep state;the Erdogan AKP movement in a false flag operation to seize more power;

Failed Military Coup in Turkey: Chaos and Political Instability | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Events are still developing, and regardless of the outcome, Turkey’s political landscape has descended  one step further still into chaos and instability with the prospect of a united and stable Turkey emerging anytime soon very unlikely.Turkey hosts a myriad of competing factions, including Turkey’s ruling party, Justice & Development Party (AKP), Kemalist nationalists that functions as a military “deep state,” a large Kurdish minority and a tangled web of street and even armed fronts supporting each respective faction.President Erdogan himself laid the blame for the coup attempt on Fetullah Gulen, a US-based opposition figure who has long sought political power in his native Turkey.President Erdogan immediately seized upon the violence to declare his intentions to “cleanse” the military of dissents, however, this is likely to only further divide the country and force his political enemies to take even more drastic measures to ensure self-preservation.

Trouble in Turkey: Military coups dog governments from 1960 to 2016 (VIDEO) — RT News

The Republic’s first president, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, implemented an ideology known as “Kemalism” in order to distinguish the new state from its Ottoman predecessor. Under Kemalism, religion is separate from the state, including with respect to education and culture.The military have historically viewed themselves as guardians of this ideology, with the freedom to intervene when it is perceived as being under threat.1960The first coup in Turkey was sparked by Prime Minister Adnan Menderes’ attempts to ease restrictions associated with Kemalism. Thousands of mosques were reopened and the call to prayer in Arabic was legalized.Tension rose between Menderes’ ruling Democratic party and the opposition. The military stepped in on May 27, declaring martial law in the country. Menderes was tried for treason and executed on September 17.General Cemal Gursel became both president and prime minister and ruled until 1966.

Access to air base housing US nukes in Turkey blocked, power cut off – consulate — RT News

The US will continue to cooperate with Turkey in its fight against Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL), US Secretary of State John Kerry said during his visit to Luxemburg.US cooperation with Turkey within NATO, as well as in operations in Syria, has not been affected by the coup attempt, Kerry said, adding that the cooperation “continues as before.”Meanwhile, US Central Command (CENTCOM) is now adjusting its operations against Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) to account for the lockdown at Incirlik airbase, TASS reports, citing sources in Pentagon.When the Turkish government closed its airspace to military aircraft, US Air Force operations at the Incirlik base ceased. US CENTCOM is now adjusting its operations against Islamic State to minimize the negative effect of the closure, the source told TASS, adding that the US is now holding consultations with Turkish authorities on the resumption of operations at the base.The Incirlik airbase is of critical importance to the US military, as not only does it facilitate the US’ aerial operations against terrorists in neighboring Syria and Iraq, but it is also one of six NATO sites in Europe that house tactical nuclear weapons. The exact number of tactical nuclear bombs at the base is classified, although some reports put it at 50 or even 90.

Engineered Fears: The Fake “Russian Threat”, The Fake “Terrorist Threat” | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Recently, General Petr Pavel, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, admitted that,“It is not the aim of NATO to create a military barrier against broad-scale Russian aggression, because such aggression is not on the agenda and no intelligence assessment suggests such a thing.”Decoded, this means that intelligence reports indicate that Russia is not a threat to the West.Since Russian aggression is not a threat, then increased NATO deployments to encircle Russia are a threat — to Russia.Decoded again:  We are the bad guys, Russia is not.But this hasn’t stopped Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, from confirming, according to CBC news, that“Canada will send a battle group of soldiers to Latvia by early 2017 as part of a NATO plan to counter fears of Russian aggression in eastern Europe.”

The Attack in Nice: How Western Imperialism Breeds Terror | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Perhaps one of the most striking features of the attack in Nice is not what occurred in France, but instead how the reaction exemplifies the selective humanity that we exhibit depending on where terrorism occurs.  The public, politicians, and the media all rightfully displayed outrage over the string of attacks that have been plaguing France over the past 18 months, as well as the recent Orlando shooting in the US, yet the level of outrage and media coverage never reaches the same levels when terrorism strikes other parts of the world, in particular the Middle East.  This in turn breeds a skewed perception in the West that it is a “battle of civilizations” that is being fought.  It obscures by omission the fact that most of the terrorism committed by groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS is perpetuated against other Arabs in Muslim-majority countries.This flawed perception then leads to the painting of all Muslim’s as terrorists, fueling the ignorant racism of calls by the likes of Donald Trump to discriminate against them, completely neglecting the fact that it is Muslims and Arabs that are on the forefront of this battle sacrificing their lives to rid the world of the jihadis.
