West Steps Up Disruptive Actions Inside Russia Over Crimea – FSB

also read:Russia Expects Assessment of Human Rights Violations in Ukraine

from Ria Novosti

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) has noted an increase in foreign disruptive actions since the souring of relations with the West over the situation in Crimea and appropriate measures are being taken to protect the country, a senior FSB official said Friday.

The fate of Crimea, a predominantly ethnic Russian region which seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia last week, has triggered the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War.

“There has been a sharp increase in foreign threats to the state. The legal desire of the Crimean people and those in the eastern regions of Ukraine to join Russia evokes hysteria on the part of the United States and its allies,” said Alexander Malevany, the FSB’s counterterrorism director, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“They are undertaking measures to disrupt the social, political and economic life of our country,” Malevany added. “In such circumstances, we are planning and implementing active counterintelligence and intelligence measures against their ambitions.”

Scott Creighton on the Monica Perez Show (links to interviews)

by Scott Creighton

Hi folks. I had the opportunity to do a couple interviews on the Monica Perez show yesterday and it was very enjoyable. We covered a lot of ground during the two interviews; Malaysian Airline Flight 370, Sandy Hook, Aurora, the Boston Bombing, American Gladio and a whole slew of other things. Monica posts comments here as austogirl. She always leaves interesting links which certainly add to the conversations.

Monica reminds me of Naomi Wolf for some reason. She’s very good at interviewing guests, making them feel right at home and at ease while still getting to the tough questions at the heart of the matter. So go check out the interviews. Have a listen while you surf the “interwebs”. Here are the links to the audio tracks.

15 years on: Looking back at NATO’s ‘humanitarian’ bombing of Yugoslavia

from RT

Exactly 15 years ago, on March 24, NATO began its 78-day bombing of Yugoslavia. The alliance bypassed the UN under a “humanitarian” pretext, launching aggression that claimed hundreds of civilian lives and caused a much larger catastrophe than it averted.

Years on, Serbia still bears deep scars of the NATO bombings which, as the alliance put it, were aimed at “preventing instability spreading” in Kosovo. Questions remain on the very legality of the offense, which caused casualties and mass destruction in the Balkan republic.

Codenamed ‘Operation Allied Force,’ it was the largest attack ever undertaken by the alliance. It was also the first time that NATO used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council and against a sovereign nation that did not pose a real threat to any member of the alliance.

NATO demonstrated in 1999 that it can do whatever it wants under the guise of “humanitarian intervention,” “war on terror,” or “preventive war” – something that everyone has witnessed in subsequent years in different parts of the globe.

Nineteen NATO member states participated to some degree in the military campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), which lasted for 11 weeks until June 10, 1999.

(and from the comment section. It’s very telling in terms of what is happening in Ukraine right now:

Kiza 24.03.2014 11:39

McFaul is in a faul. Even Jelena is not showing the best graph. The relevant graph is the debt of Serbia during Milosevic and after Milosevic. You could easily say that Serbia under Milosevic had to be bombed because it was not in debt slavery. Something similar also happened to Romania after Ceaușescu. Before Ceaușescu was killed in a coup – almost zero debt. Now, Romania is a member of EU and under a mountain of debt – the Romanian state is owned by the Western bankers. It is obvious that any leader who rejects debt slavery to the Western Bankers is called The Dictator, The Butcher, The Hitler, and blah blah.)

Who In Ukraine Will Benefit From An IMF Bailout?

1

.

from Naked Capitalism

HUDSON: The objective of IMF loans is to deindustrialize the economy. It is to force the economy–meaning the government when you say the economy–the government has to pay the IMF loan by privatizing whatever remains in the public domain. The Westerners want to buy the Ukrainian farmland. They want to buy the public utilities. They want to buy the roads. They want to buy the ports. And all of this is going to be sold at a very low price to the Westerners, and the price that the Westerners pay will be turned over to the Ukrainian government, that then will turn it back to the Ukraine. So whatever the West gives Ukraine will immediately be taken back.

Sommers: The problem with this idea that somehow by joining the E.U. everything is going to be good for the people of Ukraine is that what the Ukrainians are essentially seeing are the echoes of a social democratic past which is being euthanized in the European Union… structurally, it’s being destroyed… there are offshore gas fields just off offshore of Crimea. Exxon put in a rather substantial bid in for those. They are going to lose that.

Flight 370: Di$info Jone$ Parroting Israeli Propaganda Helping Set Up Next 9/11

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The new sanctions that everyone is saying will kick off WWIII? It’s 11 people. Obama has sanctioned 11 people. Russian officials laugh out loud.

Russia’s deputy prime minister laughed off President Obama’s sanction against him today  asking “Comrade @BarackObama” if “some prankster” came up with the list.

The Obama administration hit 11 Russian and Ukrainian officials with sanctions today as punishment for Russia’s support of Crimea’s referendum. Among them: aides to President Vladimir Putin, a top government official, senior lawmakers, Crimean officials, the ousted president of Ukraine, and a Ukrainian politician and businessman allegedly tied to violence against protesters in Kiev.

UPDATE: It’s sickening. CNN is now resorting to the “the plane was hiding under/over/behind/beside another plane” theory. I mentioned that crackpot shit in this article when it first came out this morning. Now the Jake Tapper show is doing an entire segment on it. They actually had a graphic of Flight 777 flying in the wake of another jumbo jet about 100 behind it. They weren’t even one plane length behind the other jet. It’s that ridiculous.

UPDATE: As I was writing this, the Obama administration announced sanctions against Russian OFFICIALS… but not PUTIN himself or his business interests. Not Gasprom, not the LNG pipelines supplying Europe… not big business working in Russia… not McDonalds selling tons of burgers to Russian kids… not the GAP selling jeans in Russia… just a few Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs…

“The administration officials said Putin wasn’t sanctioned despite his support of the Crimean referendum because the U.S. doesn’t usually begin with heads of state.”

So much for WWIII, huh? Didn’t even sanction Putin himself. Now, can we please get back to trying to deny them their next Pearl Harbor type event? Please? That would be nice.

“We don’t know when the Acars system was switched off,” Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, the chief executive of Malaysia Airlines

What happened in the Ukraine was a travesty. It was a 5 billion dollar regime change operation (look it up) that had to take shape on short notice because the elected officials rejected the IMF’s loans and the austerity adjustments that go along with them and accepted a no-strings-attached counter-offer from a BRICS nation. This is EXACTLY what happened in Egypt when the Obama administration removed their elected government from office when they refused an IMF “loan” and set out to create what Morsi called the “E-BRICS” organization (you don’t believe me, look it up). If put to a vote, a real vote (Crimea used a paper ballot system and international observers report it was fair and open. Immediately after our bloody neo-Nazi coup in the Ukraine, the FIRST thing Team ObamaGod decided to do after re-writing the constitution and signing up for that IMF “loan” was reform the election system meaning electronic voting machines… look it up) the people of the Ukraine would also vote to stay out of the E.U. which is why our regime change backers in the country refused to let it go to a referendum. Instead they chose fire bombs, clubs and snipers to affect their “CHANGE”

As bad as that is, what’s happening in Malaysia is much, much worse. And for the most part, the alternative news community on the web is COMPLETELY ignoring it.

Take a look at Di$info Jone$’ 19 minute video titled “Alex Jones on Possible Hijacking of Malaysian Airliner

He spends about 30 seconds backing up the mythology that the plane was hijacked and then the remainder of the time he spends fear-mongering over Russia and the U.S. going to war over Crimea.

Does no one remember his famous New Year’s Eve Russia coming over the North Pole broadcast? That was Putin as well, by the way. I guess his ignorant fan base isn’t old enough.

Throughout his most recent WWIII fear-mongering for profit rant, Di$info Jone$ simply accepts the CNN/Fox News/MSNBC/ U.S. intelligence agency’s story that Flight 370 has been hijacked and that it apparently flew for an additional 6 hours or so undetected by any radar system completely thwarting the laws of physics. Having supported that bit of critical mythology, Mr. Jone$ then rants about how Flight 370 is a ‘distraction” from the real story… WWIII.

Not surprisingly, Di$info Jone$ is merely parroting Israeli propaganda on the subject of Flight 370. I pointed out the other day that they were doing so very early on, passing on the disinformation that Flight 370 had been hijacked and was probably (according to Mike Adams and Prison Planet) sitting on a tarmac somewhere in Iran.

4 Ways the U.S. Is Violently Meddling In the Syrian Civil War

by Alex Kane, AlterNet

American intervention in this brutal war has involved arming the rebels (terrorists) and training people (terrorists) how to kill.

As the Syrian civil war grinds on and the brutality that accompanies it mounts, calls for deeper American involvement and armed intervention have increased. The fact that public pressure and a deal with Russia staved off a bombing campaign five months ago hasn’t stopped prominent voices to call for the Obama administration to do something, anything, to stop the bloodshed engulfing Syria and the wider Middle East.  What’s frequently missing from these calls to intervene is that the US is already deeply involved in the violence in Syria.

A recent call for intervention was published by the Washington Post on February 14. The author, former Clinton national security adviser Sandy Berger, argued for stopping Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s atrocities against civilians by force.

“Hindering Assad’s use of helicopters and jets to kill civilians would enable the moderate Syrian opposition to demonstrate that it has helped deliver some freedom from the constant fear of death from the air,” wrote Berger. “There are many ways to achieve this goal with partners and allies, from working with proxies in the region to airstrikes — actions limited in scope and that do not involve U.S. troops on the ground.”

USA declares war on democracy

by Kevin Ryan, Press TV

Since the days of President Woodrow Wilson – that is, for roughly 100 years – the USA has been on a self-styled crusade to “make the world safe for democracy.”

Colossal wars, hot and cold, were fought against German kaisers and fuhrers, Russian communists, and Third World nationalists. The American people were told they were “defending democracy.”

Americans slaughtered 3.5 million Vietnamese, and nearly another million Cambodians, to “defend democracy” in Southeast Asia.

They murdered millions of Iraqis through wars and sanctions to “defend democracy” in the Middle East.

According to André Vltchek and Noam Chomsky’s book On Western Terrorism, the US government has murdered between 55 and 60 million people since World War II in wars and interventions all over the world. If we believe the imperial propagandists, this American Holocaust has been one big defense of democracy.

But now, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of World War I, the US has embarked on a new crusade – to make the world UNSAFE for democracy.

In Ukraine, Venezuela, and Thailand, the US is spending billions of dollars to unconstitutionally eject democratically-elected governments. In Palestine, the US has been trying to overthrow the democratically-elected Hamas government ever since it came to power. In Egypt, the US – under Zionist pressure – recently overthrew the only genuinely democratic government in 5,000 years of recorded history. In Syria, the US insists that the people must not be given the opportunity to re-elect Assad, no matter how many international observers and safeguards ensure honest elections. And in Turkey, the US is undermining the democratically-elected Prime Minister Erdogan in favor of CIA puppet Fethullah Gulen.

Taking the long view, the US is working patiently to destroy democracy in Iran, Russia, and Latin America.

Why does the US government hate democracy?

Because the international bankers who own the US government and run the US empire cannot always buy enough votes to impose their will on every country. So democracy is fine – as long as voters elect the New World Order candidate. But if they vote for a candidate who doesn’t suit the oligarchs, get ready for a coup!

The banksters will overthrow any government that stands up to them – even in the USA. The “termination with extreme prejudice” of the presidency of John F. Kennedy sent a message to all future US presidents.

Today’s Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda – What’s Old is New Again

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: See the slick “I am a Ukrainian” video at the end of this article. It’s slightly better propaganda but just another KONY 2012 campaign. Again, nothing new.

————

As the real economy continues to shrink with jobs becoming even more scarce, it would appear there is one sector of the economy that is literally “booming” and that would be the “Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda” industry.

With varying degrees of intensity, the regime change machine is up and running in six “unfriendly” nations which are all targets of our “freedom and democracy” agenda: Russia, North Korea, Syria, Thailand, the Ukraine and Venezuela. In some cases it’s simply a matter of setting the ground work for future calls for another “humanitarian intervention”. In others, bombs are exploding and bullets are flying with the body-count climbing fast and furious.

When sycophants get wind of a sea change, of a shift in the global tide of economic opportunism, they are rarely talented enough to generate the kinds of fresh ideas needed to set them apart from the gaggle of preening wannabees who surround them.

Everyone at this point understands that they can get ahead by jumping on the globalization bandwagon with some eye-catching propaganda that might make headlines for a minute or two and help our Peace Prize “winning” president justify another humanitarian bombing. The trouble is, these C+ guys by their own nature, aren’t the best and the brightest. They succeeded (if you wish to call it that) by sucking up to whomever they could, positioning themselves as the perennial Yesmen to whatever power structure they encountered.

Today, the lack of real creativity in this overstuffed field is evidenced by some rather stupid propaganda and stunt retreads being peddled out there as attempts to force regime change on several nations with the audacity to refuse to take part in our neoliberal for-profit central banking pyramid scheme known as “globalization”

Here’s a brief rundown:

US ‘manipulated public opinion,’ ignored appeals for Syria chem attack evidence – Churkin

from RT

While building up a case against the Syrian government, the US has relied on the sophisticated filtration of information and manipulation of public opinion through carefully weighted statements with no hard proof, Russian UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said.

“Our requests for additional information which could prove the Syrian government involvement in the use of chemical weapons were ignored by Washington,” Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said after a closed-door UN Security Council (UNSC) meeting on two UN chemical weapons reports by Ake Sellstrom.

The sarin attacks near Aleppo on March 19 and in Ghouta on August 21 are the two most “alarming” incidents of the Syrian conflict, Churkin told reporters, adding that the story becomes “full of contradictions” if blame is placed on the Syrian government.

“Why would the Syrian government use chemical weapons on August 21?” Churkin said. “To cross the red line drawn by Washington and invite a missile strike upon itself? Why would the opposition use chemical weapons? Exactly because of the red line. To provoke foreign military intervention in the Syrian conflict.”

The August 21 attack was a provocation by the rebels, Churkin believes, noting that Sellstrom’s investigation got acquainted with the OPCW-certified (Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) report. He added that the UN team did not refute the results found by Russian experts in the report.

The Russian team’s analysis concluded that “home-made” sarin was used near Aleppo on March 19. It stated that the sarin was likely delivered by a crudely made missile. The team also named the particular opposition group most likely behind the attack.

The Real CIA – It was our “heroes” in the CIA who handed over Mandela to apartheid South Africa in 1962

Ex-official: Cia Helped Jail Mandela

June 10, 1990|By Joseph Albright and Marcia Kunstel, Cox News Service from the Chicago Tribune

For nearly 28 years the U.S. government has harbored an increasingly embarrassing secret: A CIA tip to South African intelligence agents led to the arrest that put black nationalist leader Nelson Mandela in prison for most of his adult life.

But now, with Mandela en route to the U.S. to a hero`s welcome, a former U.S. official has revealed that he has known of the CIA role since Mandela was seized by agents of the South African police special branch on Aug. 5, 1962.

The former official, now retired, said that within hours after Mandela`s arrest Paul Eckel, then a senior CIA operative, walked into his office and said approximately these words: “We have turned Mandela over to the South African security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be. They have picked him up. It is one of our greatest coups.

FBI Director Robert Mueller is a Domestic Terrorist – Just Committed Act of Terrorism in Congress

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Robert Mueller also suggested that obeying the constitution just takes too much darn time. Your constitutional rights are such an inconvenience …

——–

“”Governments should not have this capacity. But governments will use whatever technology is available to them to combat their primary enemy – which is their own population,” Noam Chomsky

FBI director Robert Mueller just committed an act of domestic terrorism, another act of domestic terrorism, this time in congress. That is if you accept the FBI’s own definition of domestic terrorism:

“Domestic terrorism is the unlawful use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual based and operating entirely within the United States or Puerto Rico without foreign direction committed against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.” FBI (dot) gov definition of terrorism

Yesterday I wrote an article wondering if FBI Director Robert Mueller had issued a not-so veiled threat to congress when he suggested that there may be another “terrorist” attack if they shut down the NSA blanket surveillance program. My conclusion was reached after reading two articles written about Mueller’s testimony in congress, one of which was an AP story.

This morning I viewed a brief video clip of part of that testimony on NBC News and it turns out the AP story didn’t accurately report on his exact words. Without any doubt, FBI Director Mueller directly threatened members of congress with another “terrorist” attack if the NSA blanket spying program were to be cancelled or “go dark” as he put it.

If You Want My Intel, I Get the Intel of the Proven Terrorists First – It’s Only Fair

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Salon Calls Me an “Edward Snowden Truther”

UPDATE: The Missing Motive of the Snowden Psyop: CISPA (yes… CISPA)

Here’s what I want.

I want access to all communications, email, snail-mail, PalTalk, Google, Hotmail, Yahoo, IM, phone calls, sex-chats, Weiner pics from Weiner, smoke signals, channeled spirits of dead ancestors, I want everything… and I want complete access to every bit of information of everything about the following people for the following reasons.

I want these things because if the whole point of collecting everything on everyone is to prevent more acts of terrorism, then we have to pay special attention to those who have a penchant to commit acts of terrorism and a motive to do so.

Sounds like common sense to me.

If someone pulls off a particularly professional looking bank job, you don’t immediately rush over to the local elementary school and start water-boarding the 3rd graders and smacking Ms. Pope around, do you?

Do you?

Well, maybe in Aurora, Colorado you do, but in the civilized world, you start looking at people who have a HISTORY of bank jobs.That’s pretty deep huh? I figured that out watching Barney Miller reruns when I was in elementary school. That’s how deep that is.

I think combating domestic terrorism might just fall under that same rubric, don’t you?

Or do I need to drop out of high school, community college and the Army Reserves basic training to become a master spy sleuth before I can make that connection?

Do you feel the sarcasm?

I personally have never terrorized anyone.

I shot a bird once when I was a kid. I still feel bad about that, so if ANYONE has information on me, something is terribly wrong with their stated reasons to be collecting my personal data, isn’t there?  That seems pretty f*cking simple to understand, doesn’t it? I’m not a terrorist, I never killed or harmed anyone… ergo… think it through now

But there are in fact many out there who have committed overt acts of terrorism in the past and some who are openly threatening to commit more acts of terrorism and some still who are in the latter stages of debating as too whether or not they should give some weapons and more money, more of MY MONEY, to admitted terrorists.

Here’s a hint congress and the NSA… these terrorists, as it just so happens, are mainly the ones claiming we should be ok with them collecting data complied on us, people who are not terrorists, in order to prevent more terrorism.

The terrorists want all the information they can get their blood-soaked hands on regarding the non-terrorists in order to prevent…. more terrorism.

Does that make any fucking sense?

Well it does if you are a terrorist and want to know when the townsfolk are coming with the torches and pitchforks.

But aside from that, no, it makes no sense whatsoever.

Does it sound like fighting the Global War on Terrorism or does it sound more like… oh I don’t know… TERRORISM?

So, if the whole thing is to prevent acts of terrorism, it only stands to reason that the ONLY people who are ALLOWED to collect data, should be the people who have not committed acts of terrorism for prolonged periods of time. Or VOTED for terrorism. Or TURNED their backs on terrorism. Or love their “special relationship” with nation states that are blatant sponsors of state terrorism.

In short, the agencies and the people who are getting all that illegal data and compiling it on us NON-TERRORISTS are the last people who should be getting information like that.

Do you take a 3 time convicted arsonist, put him in charge of the fire department and give him unrestricted access to matches and gas stations telling him when people aren’t going to be home and giving him the fire escape schematics for the local daycare? NO. That’s not a good idea.

It doesn’t take a high school dropout with a pole dancing girlfriend to figure that sh*t out, does it?

So, in order to even think about looking at illegally collected data in an attempt to stop terrorism, we should all be able to agree on the very simple concept that TERRORISTS should not be the ones getting said illegally gathered data on innocent civilians just trying to live their lives in peace.

After all, innocent civilians just living their lives in peace are OFTEN the TARGETS of the terrorists, now aren’t they?

That said, I purpose that since I am not a terrorist and so many in the intelligence circles are, I am given all the data to look at on who quite probably would be considered Public Terrorist #1 if they were from Iran.

And based on the criteria already established, you will be happy too know, I already have a list of people and organizations that I want complete access to everything they have done since they were in grade school.

President Peace Prize Murders 7 More in Pakistan With Unmanned Aerial Death Squad – Obamaites Yawn

by Scott Creighton

Sing along neocons neoprogressives, to the tune of the heartwarming Lee Greenwood classic:

I’m proud to be an Obamaite,

cus at least I know I’m not on fire like small children in Pakistan who couldn’t possibly be a “terrorist” in a country we have no business in…

Come on Obamaites! Hold hands with the Cheney Trolls of yesteryear and sing loud and proud. You EARNED it baby!

victimUsed to be that the bank’s official hitmen, the CIA, had to go into foreign countries and convince their leadership to put together death squads that we trained and equipped in order to make their little corner of the world safe for our “national interests” (United Fruit, Standard Oil, the Morgans the Rockefellers, etc. etc.)

But these days President Peace Prize simply kicks back with a cup-o-joe on Terror Tuesdays and picks which “evil leftists” they are going to smite in the coming week. And even though he gave a lovely little speech a week ago about winding down the Global War OF Terror we have been waging, the fact is, just today they launched yet another illegal Death Squad From Above operation in Pakistan, the first since they elected a president whom our banking bosses did not approve of.

So where are the “progressives” on this one? Zip. Nada. Out to lunch.
