OWoN Exclusive | Equity For All - the value of lasting Infrastructure

What none of you will have seen is the in depth portrayal of the evolutionary historical emergence, then development of America. This is the time and events clock leading up to today.




One World of Nations
By Neo
26 July 2014

Let's assume for a moment there is a real God out there in the cosmos. This entity is not the creation of a needy human mind as Sigmund Freud supposes. If such a force exists, then it would necessarily be something of vast wisdom. Should this God of ours be relational based, then the vastness of a empty universe would not be a happy place to exist. Let's suppose that He chose to create something out of nothing to find some greater pleasure and meaning. Yet, in so doing, decided that true fellowship could only exist with a free will to choose to do so. The creation of mankind could have been two fold. First and foremost was to be a companion to the creator and second to be a steward of His creation.

Granting a choice to be a companion carries with it consequences. For the sake of further discussion, let's assume that in mankind's process of making these choices that a breach occurred. This breach of mutual trust resulted in foundational shifts in how God and mankind relate to each other. This complicated their relationship profoundly. Something dramatic had to happen if there was ever going to be restoration of the relationship. Someone or something had to bridge the gap.


What gets lost by many who choose to cross the bridge is the profound lack of understanding that along with the restoration of the relationship comes the responsibility of stewardship. This lack of understanding is often communicated through various theological stances. It's more convenient and profitable to fleece the sheep while they are asleep.


If our benevolent God is trustworthy, then he does not show favoritism toward any part of humanity. He puts part of himself into every life that is formed from the moment of conception. This sharing of himself is a bond that all of humanity shares. He would necessarily place the intellect and ability to solve many problems across the globe not in only one geographic location, but in many. This bond between the village of humanity and God would assure that all were given an equitable share of problem solving ability while being a productive member of the whole.


That would necessarily leave us with a great dilemma. Our benevolent creator would, without question, deposit in some third world people group the answers to what the "others" might be looking for. By not having equal access to the basics of health, education, food and shelter, the elite of society would be cutting off their nose to spite their face. Their comfort, predatory ways and lack of understanding will be their own undoing.


If there was any one tribe that rose up to dominate any other, He would, I am sure, choose to take them down a peg or two as the saying goes. No one people group would be afforded the opportunity to enslave all others. History records the rise and fall of many civilizations over the eons. Their scattered ruins litter the surface of the planet. The big question is, are we facing just such a re balance within the larger confines of a global perspective?


Surly justice would be the foundation of God's relationship with his creation. If that is the case, then how can so few use so much of the world's resources and expect to continue in their predatory pillage without bearing the consequences? How could justice allow so many to be enslaved by so few? How can our failure of our stewardship continued unabated under the watchful eye of our creator, God?


How can the "machinery", of those who claim to be serving be allowed to crush the life out of the innocent people? If by some miracle a mechanism, machine or invention could afford us the ability to continue the American Lifestyle without cost, would we choose to continue, to embrace it? Is having the money to do something the same thing as having the moral imperative to spend it any way we wish? Just because we have the money to live large doesn't mean we should. Right?



Does funding, constructing and maintaining a purpose built space that seats some hundreds for only two or three hours a week honor the creator of the universe? Add to this the often popular architectural idolatry to the mix only complicates things further. If such places began to pay property taxes like any other structure in town, what would be the benefit from it as a whole? How many teachers could be hired? How many policemen could be better equipped?


Should, by some miracle, we as a society are given the opportunity to improve our infrastructure, how would we spend the money? If all we do is expand the status quo, then we will have accomplished absolutely nothing. Bigger is not better! More of the same only delays the inevitable failure of our "Roman Empire". We have to change everything from our eating habits to how we purchase health care.


If you think the government is going to do it, think again. Government is simply the reflection of the people. That is a terrible indictment against us given the horrid shape of today's government. But this simple truth may not be pleasant to embrace. When we change the government we will have no other choice but to follow suit or it will become more irrelevant than it already is. It is the ordinary citizens who have to rise to the occasion, by saying enough is enough.


Many, many pockets of people are rising to the occasion. I was fortunate enough to visit our local farmers market today. Local people raising healthy local food. Micro-Architecture is sweeping many different parts of the country. Cut off the mortgage cash cow to the banks and watch how quickly they sing a different tune. Stop buying all of the Cabal's "stuff" and watch what happens.



We need to invest wisely in new systems and new models. Everything from community planning to architecture needs to shift its emphasis. It's not difficult nor does it take a lot of money. All we need is a change of heart and willingness to embrace new approaches. The embryonic stages of this revolution is already surfacing when you know what to look for.


I can't believe that God would ever be more pleased than the day we stopped the madness. If our God is all powerful, not the figments of our imaginations, then I would suppose that any steps in this new direction would be empowered with help. America needs to dramatically down size just about everything to make room for everyone else. It's going to happen - voluntarily or involuntary. The choice is ours. Having crossed over a bridge of reconciliation, do we not want to honor the builder of it? No one issue could be more imperative for us as we face the choices of how to rebuild the infrastructure of humanity. Will we simply build another Detroit or will we do something more lasting?

The choice is ours, let's hope we choose wisely.

This is constantly UPDATED with changes and information | The Site Is Broken



I must apologize to everyone. I broke the site.

No sense going into a long explanation as to how. It is broke. I can repair it for the most part but all links are now dead. I do have back ups of all articles but the originating site was wiped. So there they go.

Blogger has decided that I have used too much resources for a while so I cannot upload a back up.

I was thinking at this time about retiring canauzzie.blogspot.com for good now as it has been wiped anyway.

I will lose all comments for the last 4 days but I have all articles and comments prior to.

I m truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

I have manually reposted the last dozen posts or so.

Thank you all for your patience.

OWoN Site Tutorial | layout and how to navigate

Welcome to the One World of Nations site. We hope you enjoy your visit - finding informative, useful information and joining the debate in the comments section. The following will explain the layout, functionality and how to navigate the site. Click on any image to see larger and view in manual slide show.

Note: For mobile versions you will have a dressed down linear layout same as before the changes. For iPads and tablets, if your device renders full site version, it works well with only minor glitches (wifi) as long as you are patient and wait for the whole page to load before trying to navigate. If you are on mobile network with any device or have slow internet speeds, we suggest using the mobile site address. Just add ?m=1 to the end of the site address or any page link. ie:  oneworldofnations.com?m=1


HOME PAGE


This is the first page you will see when you arrive at OWoN. It is most commonly known as the "HOME" page or landing page. This contains our site title and brief site description. Right below this is the "MENU" bar seen in the image below.


MENU BAR


The "MENU" bar contains tabs for navigating the site to desired locations. You will find the "MENU" bar on every page of the site to assist you with navigation. The tabs are self explanatory so we will not go into it in detail. Most of the tabs it contains will be explained later in this tutorial. Remember the "MENU" bar is on every page so just click on "HOME" to start over on the "HOME" page from wherever you are if you need or want to.

The next section is the introduction to the site which contains an explanation of why we are here and the challenge we face. Image below.


INTRODUCTION


We live in a very challenging time. It is our hope that being informed and aware to what is going on around us can bring an understanding and want to change the world for the benefit of all. All inclusive.

The following section is the "FEATURED" section. It is a dynamic montage of article images and titles. See image below.


FEATURED


The "FEATURED" section will display the top 10 most frequented articles in the last 7 days. This means they have received the most page reads and it will usually mean they are the most active for comments. Simply place your cursor on any one of the images or titles below the image and click. You will be taken directly to that article. Images will move from left to right and revert when the 10th is reached. The featured articles mean that they are the most visited articles and are likely to contain the most active comment sections.

The next section is "POSTS". Some may find it confusing, but once you understand how it functions it is very useful for navigating the site quickly and effortlessly, as well as having a visual image montage of what is new and can be used for older posts, however it will be much slower that the "BLOG ARCHIVE" which will be covered later. See image below.


POSTS


It is laid out as follows. In the top left corner (1st spot) of the image montage will be the most recent article posted or, more commonly, the most recent "EXCLUSIVE" article posted. It can stay there as long as we require regardless of when originally posted. Following to the right (2nd spot) will be the next more recent article posted chronically. Sometimes, however, there maybe a post that we wish to expose more than others. These could be, but not limited to, what we call features or guest posts. Those can also take 2nd spot for days regardless of when originally posted. Exclusive, Featured and Guest posts tend to be the most active for comments.

Other then the stipulations quoted above all images in the "POST" section will be in chronological order starting with the the most recent in the top left corner moving right and then down to the left moving right once again on the next row, going older and older as you go. But don't let that fool you, because the first montage page you see is only today's and yesterdays posts and will change accordingly as a new days articles appear. After seeing it for a few days you will see how it functions. Simply move your cursor on to any of the images and the title, date of post and a short snippet will appear - click on to go to that article.

Now how to navigate the "POST" section. Below is an image that highlights the bottom of the post section. See image.


REMINDER - CLICK ON ANY IMAGE IN TUTORIAL TO SEE LARGER


Notice right below the image montage there is a tab showing 1 to 400+. Use this tab to view older articles in image montages that are set much the same as the first page - two days of posts. Only difference being is it will mix 3 days posts over two pages at times depending on how many posts were made per day as there is a maximum of how many images can be displayed at one time.

Next is the "CONTACT" section - pretty self explanatory. Just be sure to fill in all the blanks with relevant information for it to function.

We will now use an article page to explain layout and function. See image below.


TRANSLATE and FOLLOW BY EMAIL (newsletter)


Notice the "MENU" bar is there for your use. We will divide the page into several images so it can be more easily shown each item that needs focus. We will not explain the whole page but rather just hit on some key information and navigating tools. On the above image is our newsletter subscription. Be sure to verify the email that is promptly delivered to your email inbox to receive our newsletter. If email is not verified the newsletter will not be sent. If you have not received the verification email within a few minutes check your spam folder. If still not found try again or contact us for assistance.


RECENT POSTS


"RECENT POSTS" is the 5 most recent posts with a thumbnail image and title. Just place cursor over any article you wish to go to and click. You will be taken to the article. Same rules apply that were discussed on the "POSTS" section.


POPULAR POSTS - LAST & DAYS AND ALL TIME


The two "POPULAR POST" sections operate the same way except for one difference. "POPULAR POSTS - LAST & DAYS" is just that. The top 5 most popular posts over the last 7 days. "POPULAR POSTS - ALL TIME" is the same but is for all time spanning over 3000+ articles and growing daily. The most popular posts mean the most visited articles and will most likely be the most active with comments.


CATEGORIES, BLOG ARCHIVE and SUGGESTED LINKS


"CATEGORIES" work the same as the "POSTS" section image montage and follow the same chronological rules. Simply click on one category and see all articles on this site which suits the category name. Place your cursor on the image to see title, date posted and snippet. just click on the image to go to article.

"BLOG ARCHIVE" works the same as "POST" section image montage and follow the same chronological rules. Simply click on a day to see all the articles posted on that day.

"SUGGESTED LINKS" are links to trusted sites that we either support or appreciate their efforts in bringing and sharing information which is vital to the public to understand and stay informed on issues that need addressing. Some or many of their articles are featured here on this site.


PREVIOUS POST, RELATED POSTS and BLOG / FACEBOOK COMMENTS


"Previous" and "Next" are self explanatory and are quickly explained on the image above.

"Related Posts" are articles of the same category, authors or type. Whether they be Exclusives, Features, other articles authored by Neo (presented here) or other guest authors. They can also go by information type like Banking, Humor or Health.

There are comment types. "BLOG COMMENTS" are typical site comments and operate in the same fashion. Just type what you would like to say in a new comment or a reply to existing, select which account you want to use - Google or Open ID and select "publish". "FACEBOOK COMMENTS" are for Facebook only and will not show in regular blog comments. You can comment right to Facebook, just select and comment.


SOCIAL NETWORK and RSS FEED BUTTONS


Last of all, found at the bottom of every page are our Social Network Buttons. Click on to follow, or in the case of the RSS Buttons, subscribe to new posts and/or comments.

In closing we hope this tutorial was found useful and will compliment what you already know or have learned recently from using the site. if after this tutorial you feel that this new format is not for you, then may we suggest the following:

As an alternative till you become more comfortable with the site may I suggest these two options below and you can choose one if any that works best for you:

1) At the bottom of every page you will find two RSS buttons on the right hand side beside the google+ button. The one on the left is for posts and the one on the right is for comments. Click on either one. In posts you will see all the posts in a linear format. If you select comments the same, you will see most recent comments in a linear format. Click on any of the blue headings to go direct to the article the comment is found on. You may or may not subscribe, your choice, but you can always view in linear format when clicking on the RSS buttons.

2) You can view the site in mobile format. All you have to do is add ?m=1 to the end of the site address or anyone of the site links. This format will also show in linear but with thumbnails and short snippets. Use this link as example, oneworldofnations.com?m=1

On Washington's Ukrainian Fiasco: "Who Is The Real Problem Here?"

OWoN: Well said. Deviants and Liars.




Zero Hedge
By Tyler Durden
28 July 2014

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,

In just 800 words Pat Buchanan exposes the sheer juvenile delinquency embodied in Washington’s current Ukrainian fiasco. He accomplishes this by reminding us of the sober restraint that governed the actions of American Presidents from FDR to Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush I with respect to Eastern Europe during far more perilous times.

In a word, as much as they abhorred the brutal Soviet repression of the Hungarian uprising in 1956, the Prague Spring in 1968 and the solidarity movement in Poland in the early 1980s, among many other such incidents, they did not threaten war for one simple reason: These unfortunate episodes did not further endanger America’s national security. Instead, in different ways each of these Presidents searched for avenues of engagement with the often disagreeable and belligerent leaders of the Soviet Empire because they “felt that America could not remain isolated from the rulers of the world’s largest nation”.

Accordingly, during the entire span from 1933, when FDR recognized the Soviet Union, until 1991, when it ended, the US never once claimed Ukraine’s independence was part of its foreign policy agenda or a vital national security interest. Why in the world, therefore, should we be meddling in the backyard of a far less threatening Russia today?

More importantly, if Ike could invite Khrushchev to tour America and pow-wow with him at Camp David after the suppression of the Hungarian freedom fighters and his bluster over Berlin, what in the world is Obama doing attempting to demonize Putin and make him an international pariah? The fact is, Crimea had been part of Russia for 200 years, and the Donbas had been its Russian-speaking coal, steel and industrial heartland since the time of Stalin.

Putin’s disagreements with the Ukrainian nationalists who took over Kiev during the Washington inspired overthrow of its constitutionally-elected government in February are his legitimate geo-political business, but have nothing to do with our national security. And whatever his considerable faults, Putin is no totalitarian menace even remotely in the same league as his Soviet predecessors. In that regard, Hillary Clinton’s sophomoric comparison of him to Hitler is downright preposterous.

At the heart of the matter is the War Party’s desire to punish Putin for pushing back against American interventionism in Syria, Iran, Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. For that Washington has now ensnared itself in an ancient ethnic struggle that has roiled Russia’s borders for centuries; and has landed smack in the middle of an attempt by Kiev’s nationalists to violently maintain the “territorial integrity” of a nation who’s boundaries have been meandering all over the map since the middle ages.

In that context, Senator John McCain’s call to arm the ruffians, opportunists, oligarchs and neo-fascists who took power in a street level coup in Kiev is downright lunatic. It causes Buchanan to ask, “Who is the real problem here?”

The answer is that it’s not Putin, and that conclusion comes from a brilliant partisan scholar of 20th century foreign policy who is no left-wing pacifist.

New MH17 Sensation | German experts point finger at Ukrainian air-force jets.

OWoN: I suppose a country that wants to escape the rhetoric might just throw the truth in air for all to see. The plot thickens.


SU-25

Surface to air missile attack ruled out as calibre of cockpit bullet holes puts Ukraine pilots in the frame for MH17 murders

The Slog
By John Ward
28 July 2014

This is what a German pilot-cum-air technology expert Peter Haisenko has just published on the subject of the MH17 disaster (my emphases):

‘The misfortune of the Malaysian MH 017 is known to all. The flight recorder is in England and is being evaluated. What can come of this?

Maybe more than you want to accept….if you look at the image of Cockpit-Fragments, this picture is certainly shocking.

Entry And Exit holes from bullets in the area of the Cockpit. This is not speculation, but analysis of clear facts: the cockpit shows clear evidence of bullet holes. You can see the entry holes and some exit points. The edges of the bullet holes are bent inwards,
these are much smaller and round in shape. A 30mm calibre. The exit holes are less well formed and the edges are torn outwards.

Furthermore it is visible that the exit holes have torn the double aluminium skin and bent them outwards. That is to say, splinters from inside the cockpit blew through the outside of the cabin. The open rivets have also been bent outwards….There is only one conclusion one can make, and that is that this: the aircraft was not hit by a missile. The damage to the aircraft is exclusively in the cockpit area….

Armour-Piercing Ammunition. Russia has published radar data that a Ukranian SU 25 was close to MH 017. this corresponds with Spanish air traffic control that two Ukrainian fighter aircraft were in direct contact with MH 017. Examine the weaponry of the SU 25: it is fitted out with a 30mm cannon Type GSch-302 /AO-17A, with 250 rounds of splintering exploding bullets on a belt – shrapnel rounds. The cockpit of MH 017 was hit from TWO sides, as there are entry and exit holes on the same side….’

Very compelling stuff, is it not?

David Cameron announces immigration benefits crackdown

Benefits for EU migrants in the UK will be cut off after three months, says PM, as he promises Coalition changes will 'put Britain first'

The Telegraph
By Peter Dominiczak
29 July 2014

David Cameron is to announce tough action on immigration that will halve the amount of time foreigners can claim benefits in the UK.

The Coalition will introduce laws to ensure that European Union migrants can only claim out-of-work benefits for three months, Mr Cameron says in an article for The Telegraph.

The Prime Minister also pledges to stop more than 500,000 British jobs being advertised across the EU and announces tough new curbs on colleges offering visas to “bogus” students.

The Government will make changes to the immigration system that put “Britain first” and ensure that the UK is “a country that is not a soft touch”, Mr Cameron says. “We changed the rules so that no one can come to this country and expect to get out-of-work benefits immediately; they must wait at least three months,” Mr Cameron adds.

“And we are announcing today that we are cutting the time people can claim these benefits for. It used to be that European jobseekers could claim Job Seeker’s Allowance or child benefit for a maximum of six months before their benefits would be cut off, unless they had very clear job prospects.

MH17 crash: Black boxes show plane suffered 'massive explosive decompression' following shrapnel hit

OWoN: First Black Box reports leaking out.




Dutch authorities have criticised Ukraine for releasing information 'too early' and say they do not know how Ukrainian officials obtained the data

The Independent
By Natasha Culzac
28 July 2014

Flight MH17 was brought down by shrapnel that caused “massive explosive decompression,” analysis of the black box recorders has found.

The results, given today by Ukrainian security official Andriy Lysenko, have, however, left Dutch officials stunned as they did not expect the "premature" announcement.

Mr Lysenko told a news conference that the fragments had come from a rocket blast.

His source however, is under scrutiny after the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) confirmed they did not give the information to Ukraine.

DSB spokeswoman Sara Vernooij told The Independent: "I can’t make a comment on what source Mr. Lysenko has.

"We don’t want to confirm or say anything about the information on the black boxes right now; this in the best interest of the investigation itself.

"We want to analyse [and] combine information of several sources before we bring out anything, so we can give a coherent view on the whole investigation.

"Bringing out fragmented pieces of information is not on behalf of the investigation."

The board, which is leading the investigation, had been expected to release its initial findings on 1 August.

It did not question the veracity of Mr Lysenko's claims but suggested that the early release of the information was not in the interest of the investigation.

Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) was tasked with retrieving important data from the recovered flight recorders.

It comes as a senior UN diplomat claims that the downing of MH17 could “amount to a war crime.”

Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights today called for an immediate and wide-ranging investigation into the shooting down of the Malaysian Airlines passenger plane.

Libya’s Destruction a Warning to Egypt, Syria, & Ukraine

OWoN: The legacy of ever more sickening, failed strategies of the US acclaimed Western Alliance is in plain view for all to see, if one has sight. And you wonder why the BRICS alliance was created? As one they all are subject to dominance and as a group much harder to usurp. The game of dominance will escalate in coming months and years embracing all of the planet until there is an ultimate group winner. A winner though of what is left in the end is debatable. And to whether any side is better than the other is questionable.

One would have thought that after centuries of existence the species could evolve to a higher order of thought, like peace. We need a new Kill Bill agenda let loose on the Cabal.




New Eastern Outlook
By Tony Cartalucci
27 July 2014

RT’s article, “90% of aircraft destroyed at Tripoli airport, Libya may seek international assistance,” reported that:

Libya is considering a deployment of international force to re-establish security amid a flare-up of violence in Tripoli which saw dozens of rockets destroy most of the civilian aircraft fleet at its international airport.

“The government is looking into the possibility of making an appeal for international forces on the ground to re-establish security and help the government impose its authority,” a government spokesman, Ahmed Lamine said in a statement.

The “democratic tomorrow” promised by NATO in 2011 has been realized – that is – in the form of predictably fraudulent elections accepted by no one, leaving a power vacuum apparently to be settled through increasingly violent armed conflict. Perhaps most ironic of all is that these conflicts are being waged between NATO’s various armed proxies it used to carry out the ground war while it bombarded Libya from the air over the majority of 2011.


NATO’s Proxies Cannibalize Each Other

In May 2014, fighting in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has left scores dead, many more injured, and residents fleeing for their lives as what the Western media called a “renegade general,” waged war on “Islamist militants” within the city. Reuters in its article, “Families evacuate Benghazi as renegade general vows more attacks,” claimed:

The self-declared Libyan National Army led by a renegade general told civilians on Saturday to leave parts of Benghazi before it launched a fresh attack on Islamist militants, a day after dozens were killed in the worst clashes in the city for months.

The renegade general is Khalifa Haftar (sometimes spelled Hifter), who lived in the United States – outside of Langley Virginia – for years allegedly being groomed by the CIA until his eventual return to Libya in 2011 to lead ground forces in NATO’s proxy invasion. The Business Insider would report in its 2011 article, “Is General Khalifa Hifter The CIA’s Man In Libya?,” that:

Since coming to the United States in the early 1990s, Hifter lived in suburban Virginia outside Washington, D.C. Badr said he was unsure exactly what Hifter did to support himself, and that Hifter primarily focused on helping his large family.

So a former Qaddafi general who switches sides is admitted to the United States, puts down roots in Virginia outside Washington, D.C. and then somehow supports his family in a manner that mystifies a fellow who has known Hifter his whole life. Hmm.

The likelihood that Hifter was brought in to be some kind of asset is pretty high. Just as figures like Ahmed Chalabi were cultivated for a post-Saddam Iraq, Hifter may have played a similar role as American intelligence prepared for a chance in Libya.

The irony is that many of the sectarian militants Hafter was fighting in Benghazi were the same militants Muammar Qaddafi was fighting for decades as leader of Libya, and the same militants that NATO armed and abetted alongside Hafter in the overthrow of Qaddafi in 2011.

Regarding his campaign in Benghazi, Hafter claimed that it would continue until “Benghazi is purged of terrorists,” and that, “we’ve started this battle and will continue it until we have reached our goals. The street and the Libyan people are with us.” Hafter’s sentiments echo those of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, only then, the Western media denied the existence of terrorists that had been based in Benghazi for decades and portrayed Tripoli’s operations there as a “massacre” of “peaceful pro-democracy protesters.”

Deutsche Bank, HSBC Accused of Silver Fix Manipulation

OWoN: This cloud has no Silver lining because they stole that also.




Bloomberg
By Patricia Hurtado
25 July 2014

Deutsche Bank AG (DBK), HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) and Bank of Nova Scotia were accused in a lawsuit of rigging the price of billions of dollars in silver, an allegation similar to earlier suits involving the London gold fix.

The banks unlawfully manipulated the price of the metal and its derivatives, an investor claims in a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Manhattan. The banks abused their position of controlling the daily silver fix to reap illegitimate profit from trading, hurting other investors in the silver market who use the benchmark in billions of dollars of transactions, according to the suit.

“The extreme level of secrecy creates an environment that is ripe for manipulation,” according to the complaint. “Defendants have a strong financial incentive to establish positions in both physical silver and silver derivatives prior to the public release of silver fixing results, allowing them to reap large illegitimate profits.”

The lawsuit is the latest to be brought against banks alleging manipulation of a benchmark. Suits have been filed against Deutsche Bank and Bank of Nova Scotia, HSBC and other banks in federal court in New York over allegations involving the London gold fix.

Silver Benchmark

“We intend to vigorously defend ourselves against this suit,” Diane Flanagan, a spokeswoman for the Bank of Nova Scotia, said in an e-mail. Juanita Gutierrez, a spokeswoman for HSBC, and Amanda Williams, a representative for Deutsche Bank, declined to comment.

J. Scott Nicholson, a Washington state resident who filed the case, is seeking to represent a class of investors who have bought silver future contracts since Jan. 1, 2007.

MH17 Verdict: Real Evidence Points to US-Kiev Cover-up of Failed False Flag

OWoN: Perhaps time for real truth in a world made more cynical by constant lies.




21st Century Wire
Special Report
Updated
25 July 2014

Until this past Monday, the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17th, 2014, was a potential game changer for global geopolitics and the New Cold War. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the Kremlin…

In this report, we will lay out the facts based on a wide breadth of available information and data surrounding MH17. We will also present and give critique to Washington and Kiev’s “mountain of evidence” that has saturated US and European-based media coverage since the incident took place. 21WIRE has compiled this report with the help of many contributors and references from English-speaking media, as well as material translated from Russian and Ukrainian media sources, along with other historical references to provide context. Our objective is to get as close to the truth as possible. Although many revelations will appear to be self-evident, we still encourage the public to draw their own conclusions regarding this pivotal event.

There are other well-known anomalies surrounding this event which have been covered at 21WIRE, as well as connections to MH370, but for the purposes of this investigation we will focus on both factual and speculative evidence brought forth by the US, Ukraine and Russia.

As we will clearly demonstrate, the only wild conspiracy theories being pushed right now, are those coming out of the US State Department, and the government in Kiev, Ukraine, which are being repeated by CNN, BBC, FOX-NewsCorp, ABC, CBS and NBC…

The Brink of War

Last Monday morning was not a pleasant one for the US State Department. Russian officials surprised Washington and its NATO partners when it released all available satellite imagery and air traffic control data which was recorded in and around the final minutes of Flight MH17 – and presented it to the world media on live television. The data painted a very different picture, drawing contrasting conclusions to what Washington and Kiev officials had been disseminating via western media since July 17th. Following their presentation, Moscow handed its findings – air traffic data and time stamped satellite imagery – to European authorities. We will review those findings in detail later in this report. In stark contrast, US officials have been reluctant to do the same. Is Washington willing to share any object data or evidence to the public, or is it only interested in sharing that which somehow fits into the same predetermined narrative it stood by on July 17th, one which already assigned guilt to both rebel fighters in eastern Ukraine and Russia?

We hope that political leaders and media organizations in the US and Europe will take the time to consider all available information, rather than simply repeat and spin what is bouncing around the media echo chamber. It’s also crucial to understand the geopolitical context in which this incident has occurred in order to discover who really possessed the motive, and the means to destroy this passenger aircraft, and which parties stand to benefit most from such an international incident.

After reviewing the evidence, all indicators points to the downing of MH17 as a highly coordinated, but failed false flag event.

MH17: A Doomed Flight Path

A Malaysian Airlines spokesman has already confirmed that, for some unknown reason, Kiev-based Ukrainian Air Traffic Control (ATC) ordered MH17 off of its original flight path along the international air route, known as L980.

Most likely, this order was given to pilots while MH17 was still in Polish air space. L980 is one of the most popular and most congested air routes in the world, as well as a key link between major international hubs in Europe, like London Heathrow, Amsterdam Schiphol, and Frankfurt, and Asian destinations, like Singapore, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.

Iran Nuclear Talks Uncertain After Kerry Push

OWoN: Here we go again. Yet another Sovereign Nation subjected to US bullying stands up to them and will join BRICS. Forget the talk of China being Leader within 10 years. China is now matching the US for GDP and will overtake next year. That soon.

The Party's over.

Vienna: The fate of nuclear talks between Iran and world powers was unclear on Tuesday after two days of "very tough" talks between US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart in Vienna.

"We are in the middle of talks about nuclear proliferation and reining in Iran's programme, it is a really tough negotiation I will tell you," Kerry said in the Austrian capital.

He said later after the talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif: "We are working, we are working very hard. Serious discussions. (It was a) good meeting."

A senior US official said there was "more work to do".

The deadline for Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany to get a deal is Sunday, when an interim accord from November expires.

This can be extended, allowing both sides to continue talking, but only if both sides agree and Washington insists Iran has to make major concessions first.

Kerry was due to give a news conference on Tuesday morning, the US official said, and it was unclear whether he would hold any more discussions with Zarif.

Egyptian state media reported that Kerry was due in the country in an effort to broker a truce in Gaza.

The Iran talks, which entered their sixth and final round on July 3, were however set to continue between lower-ranking officials and may go down to the wire of the July 20 cut-off point.

The mooted accord would kill off for good fears that Iran might develop nuclear weapons under the guise of its civilian programme after a decade of rising tensions and threats of war.

Iran denies seeking the atomic bomb and wants the lifting of crippling UN and Western sanctions.

The six powers want Iran to dramatically reduce in scope its nuclear programme - for at least 10 years, Washington says -- and agree to more intrusive UN inspections.

This would greatly expand the time needed for the Islamic republic to develop a nuclear weapon, should it choose to do so, while giving the world ample warning of any such "breakout" push.

But Iran on the other hand wants to expand its nuclear facilities, insisting they are purely peaceful and that it has the perfect right to do so.

Both sides are also under intense domestic pressure from hardliners both in Iran and in Washington - midterm US elections are in November - both wary of giving too much away.

Top Obama adviser: GOP prepping for impeachment

Predicts backlash over coming 'amnesty' orders, 1 in 3 Americans support removal

There’s more talk about impeachment – only this time it’s coming from the White House.

According to a Reuters report Friday, Dan Pfeiffer, a top adviser for Barack Obama, says the president’s planned executive orders on immigration will make Republicans in Congress unhappy. Very unhappy.

The comments came at a breakfast organized by the Christian Science Monitor.

“The president acting on immigration reform will certainly up the likelihood that they would contemplate impeachment,” the report quoted Pfeiffer saying.

He said it would be “foolish” to overlook the possibility.

Pfeiffer said he can see Republicans moving toward impeachment, according to the report, “in retaliation for the immigration orders he is expected to unveil by the end of the summer.”

Pfeiffer’s remarks came a day after a House panel took the first step in filing a lawsuit against Obama over his use of executive power. It clears the way for the full House of Representatives to vote on the measure before heading out of town next week for summer recess.

The House Rules Committee voted 7-4 Thursday along party lines to authorize the lawsuit.

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., applauded the panel’s move Friday.

“We’re very concerned about the lawlessness of the administration,” Ryan said on MSNBC.

Ryan dismissed suggestions the lawsuit is not a productive way for Congress to spend its time.

“We can walk and chew gum at the same time. We can juggle a lot of bills. We’re working on border security, foreign policy, appropriations and many things at one time. So it’s not as if this displaces action on other items. … I will vote for it,” he said.

Washington Is Escalating the Orchestrated Ukrainian “Crisis” to War

OWoN: Does Germany wait and implode, or loose and reload? For them, the party's over. As it is in the US. China will now be number one next year.

A clear warning of reality unless Germany walks the plank and leaves the Euro into the camp of China and Russia and the BRICS.

Despite the conclusion by US intelligence that there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the destruction of the Malaysian airliner and all lives on board, Washington is escalating the crisis and shepherding it toward war.

Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes.” https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2277/BILLS-113s2277is.pdf The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.

Note that prior to any evidence of any Russian aggression, there are already 22 senators lined up in behalf of preventing further Russian aggression.

Accompanying this preparatory propaganda move to create a framework for war, hot or cold with Russia, NATO commander General Philip Breedlove announced his plan for a deployment of massive military means in Eastern Europe that would permit lightening responses against Russia in order to protect Europe from Russian aggression.

There we have it again: Russian Aggression. Repeat it enough and it becomes real.

The existence of “Russian aggression” is assumed, not demonstrated. Neither Breedlove nor the senators make any reference to Russian war plans for an attack on Europe or any other countries. There are no references to Russian position papers and documents setting forth a Russian expansionist ideology or a belief declared by Moscow that Russians are “exceptional, indispensable people” with the right to exercise hegemony over the world. No evidence is presented that Russia has infiltrated the communication systems of the entire world for spy purposes. There is no evidence that Putin has Obama’s or Obama’s daughters’ private cell phone conversations or that Russia downloads US corporate secrets for the benefit of Russian businesses.

Nevertheless, the NATO commander and US senators see an urgent need to create blitzkrieg capability for NATO on Russia’s borders.

Israel and US Hit Self-Destruct

OWoN: Two complete Pariah States are playing out their own demise.

“America’s GDP, incidentally, was $16.8 trillion on World Bank numbers, and China’s was $16.2 trillion – within a whisker of knocking the US off its perch. The balance of global economic power is on a knife-edge. Tomorrow is almost today.”

When will the public realize that a shift has occurred. If one wondered why a new order is being carved out with the BRICS nations, led by China, then one only has to realize that exponential growth curve by China is accelerating while the West retracts. When you see China advance capital for infrastructure remember that they lend the money, supply the goods and labor, and collect interest from the country in question while America plays soldier games exhausting its resources.

Traditional U.S. policies – backing Israel whatever it does and assuming the dollar will remain king – are facing new challenges as Israel shocks the global conscience with its war on Gaza and emerging economic powers consider a new reserve currency, notes Danny Schechter.

For years, the term “suicide bombers” has been synonymous with terrorist attacks, especially in Israel. The idea of a martyr willing to give his life for a cause while taking out an “enemy” became a feature of modern conflict especially with resistance movements confronting modern armies.

Oddly enough, the phrase, seems to have blown back today onto Israel itself, as its military engages in a much deadlier “suicide mission,” acting like Ahab in Melville’s Moby Dick determined to slay the monster whale while killing himself.

First, there are the costs to Israel’s economy from the current offensive against Gaza. With many major airlines canceling flights, the summer tourist season has been badly damaged.

Next, Deutsche Welle reports. “The conflict has so far cost Israel’s defense budget more than a billion shekels, some 200 million euros. Eitan Avriel of the business magazine ‘The Marker’ suspects that the army will reclaim this money from the government. more than a billion shekels, some 200 million euros.

“‘The government has already allocated 400 million shekels to support the communities living along the border with the Gaza Strip,’ says Eitan. However, the greatest loss is the decline in the gross national product, he stressed, pointing out that consumption has virtually halved.”

Needless to say, these costs are hardly as dire as the ones being suffered by the people of Gaza, an overcrowded city of 1.7 million that is being destroyed with a growing loss of life. Israel’s casualties are also on the rise.

Russia delivering weapons to Iraq

OWoN: This is comical. America bombs the crap out of Iraq, kills Iraqis, bleeds its own troops, pays financially, buys oil in USD which now goes to Russia to offset USD restrictions by selling weapons to fight another US construct also USD funded while Russia employs people making weapons. And you think war is not a racket.

Somethings just do not change.

MOSCOW: Russia has begun supplying military helicopters and fighters jets to Iraq, a report said Thursday, as Iraq's defense minister visited Moscow to press for equipment to thwart a jihadist offensive.

"A number of contracts with Iraq have entered into force and are being fulfilled," the Interfax news agency quoted a source in Russia's defense export establishment as saying.

Deliveries of Mi-35 helicopter gunships and Su-25 fighters that provide close air support for ground troops have begun, added the source.

Iraq also has contracts for Mi-28 attack helicopters and mobile Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air and anti-aircraft artillery systems.

Russia's ambassador to Baghdad, Ilya Mogunov, had previously said he believed up to 10 Sukhoi fighter jets would be delivered by the end of the summer.

Russia and Iraq in 2012 signed contracts worth $4.2 billion to supply 36 of the Mi-28 attack helicopters and 48 of the Pantsir units, according to Russian Technologies (RosTec) which controls their producers.

Later it signed contracts for six Mi-35 helicopters and Su-25 fighters.

Iraq's Defense Minister Saadun al-Dulaimi was in Moscow Thursday on a visit officials said was aimed at stepping up military cooperation with Russia.
