The Meria Heller Show – 06/16/12

The Meria Heller Show – 06/16/12 | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"Meria interviews Peter Janney, author of the excellent book “Mary’s Mosaic, The CIA Conspiracy to Murder JFK, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace”. Peter was best friends with Mary’s son Michael; What kind of woman was Mary? What did she know? Why was she assassinated? CIA wives; Peter’s fathers part in the conspiracy to kill Mary; CIA & drugs; can’t control free will; LSD & MKUltra; Using psychedelics for world peace; JFK’s lover and friend; Katherine Graham a CIA asset; what happened to Phil Graham? CIA’s control of the media; Mary killed weeks after the Warren report was released; CIA orchestrated JFK’s death; the cover-up; the patsy – Ray Crump; The lawyer Dovey Roundtree; JFK’s speech on 6/10/63; the movies “13 Days” and “Executive Action”; JFK murdered by domestic opponents; 50,000 papers plus not released on JFK until 2029 and more. Meria HIGHLY recommends this book."

 

A new book for those of you interested in the JFK assassination story. I cannot comment as I have not read it - yet!

 

For those people who ask why it matters, the answer is made clear by the changes that JFK was beginning to make that would have brought the world nearer to peace.

 

It was for that reason that he had to be removed by those who wanted to perpetuate the 'military-industrial complex'.

Land Destroyer: Washington DC: FBI Foils Own Terror Plot (Again)

Land Destroyer: Washington DC: FBI Foils Own Terror Plot (Again) | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has once again proven that the only thing Americans need fear, is their own government, with the latest "terror attack" foiled being one entirely of their own design."

 

But more than just terror 'plots', it is possible that this idea is considered a route to foment war with Iran, which could very probably lead to WWIII if allowed to proceed.

 

Further in the artice is this paragraph on the subject,

"The risk rises exponentially now with Israel being confirmed to be training, arming, and directing US State Department-listed terrorist organization, the People's Mujahedin of Iran, also known as Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK). The US has also played an extensive role in supporting MEK who is currently carrying out a campaign of terror inside of Iran. This is part of a plot by the US indicated in its own policy papers, openly conspiring to provoke a war with Iran."

 

This kind of activity must be exposed for what it is and opposed at every opportunity.

 

This is also why the situation in Syria is vital, in order to stop the progression into Iran - or beyond.

#US Expands #Syria Campaign To Target #Iran

#US Expands #Syria Campaign To Target #Iran | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"On Tuesday, as reported by AFP, the US accused Iran of setting up a pro-regime militia in Syria. The accusations were voiced during a press conference of US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey."

 

Yet again, hypocrisy rules for the Anglo-American oligarchs.

 

It seems that any and every country can assist the so-called Syrian rebels, but the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad must not receive any assistance, particularly from Iran.

 

Anyone who has been following this story properly, by which I mean not through the corporate-controlled mainstream media, will understand that the object of the exercise is to oust Assad and attain a 'regime change', which means the installation of a US/UK/NATO puppet in his place.

 

The next 'phase' of the operation is a confrontation with Iran, that much is clear.

 

Therefore for Iran to assist Syria to stop the conflict before reaching Iran makes perfect sense.

Interested in Buying a Greek Port? Samaras Government Transfers Rights of 23 Ports & Marinas - Keep Talking Greece

Interested in Buying a Greek Port? Samaras Government Transfers Rights of 23 Ports & Marinas - Keep Talking Greece | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"Are you interested in operating a Greek port? You could slowly start to scratch your money together because Greece is readying to make them available to those willing to invest in the debt-ridden country. 23 Greek ports and touristic ports (marinas) will pass from Greek hands to investors’ willing to operate them."

 

It must be emphasised here that the reference to 'Greece' readying itself to make her ports available does not refer to the Greek people, but to the government that promised to help Greece.

 

If this is helping Greece, I would hate to think what they would consider unhelpful!

1. Syria  -  Syria crisis: Rebels lose key district of Aleppo

2. Iraq  -  Erdogan slams Iran for supporting Maliki government

3. West Africa (Nigeria & Mali)  -  Nigeria: HRW tasks Clinton on Nigeria's insecurity

4. Congo  -  Congo rejects Rwandan soldiers for regional anti-rebel force

5. Greece  -  Minister: Privatizations are Greece's top priority

6. Under the Radar  -  Stuxnet, Flame...Gauss: New spy virus found in Middle East"

 

Another information-packed episode by Eric Draitser.

 

In this episode he covers the situation in Greece for the first time since the elections.

 

He particulrly refers to the great effort by Alexis Tsipras and the SYRIZA party to provide a coherent opposition to the despicable antics of the Greek government that has reneged on its promise to re-negotiate the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding, in other words the 'bailout'.

 

This is a bitter pill to swallow for the Greek people who believed that they would re-negotiate and it is unlikely that they will accept this treachery.

Would President Mitt Romney be Bound by the Mormon Oath of Vengeance Against the United States? Would He Try to Fulfill Joseph Smith’s Theocratic White Horse Prophecy? « TARPLEY.net

Would President Mitt Romney be Bound by the Mormon Oath of Vengeance Against the United States? Would He Try to Fulfill Joseph Smith’s Theocratic White Horse Prophecy? « TARPLEY.net | News on World Events | Scoop.it

Webster Tarpley's latest broadcast on World Crisis Radio analyses the situation in Syria including more information on the recent Tehran conference.

 

He also discusses the background of Mormonism and Mitt Romney's connections with the Mormon church and the Joseph Smith prophecy that ought to be of extreme interest to everyone and particularly to American citizens in view of the forthcoming elections.

 

This is not to recommend Obama in the place of Romney, but to urge Americans to find an alternative to replace both puppets.

IMF Pushes EU Lenders To Reduce Greece’s Debt

"That’s enlightening. The International Monetary Fund allegedly pushes European governments to ease the burden of borrowed sums to Greece. The IMF claims, it is under pressure by its own members about the huge amounts they have lent to Euro Zone. Speaking to Wall Street Journal under conditions of anonymity, IMF officials say, the Greek debt must be reduced to “sustainable” levels, because “Greece’s deep recession has thrown the country’s bailout program woefully off track from targets set earlier this year.”

 

Has someone finally realised the obvious, that austerity and budget cuts will never help to repay debts that are not the burden of the people to repay anyway?

 

Has sense finally prevailed in the IMF?

 

I wouldn't hold my breath, but maybe this is a sign that things are changing.

SPIEGEL: Alexis Tsipras Among the "10 Most Dangerous Politicians of Europe" - Keep Talking Greece

SPIEGEL: Alexis Tsipras Among the "10 Most Dangerous Politicians of Europe" - Keep Talking Greece | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"Alexis Tsipras, leader of left-wing SYRIZA and leader of main opposition party is one of “10 most dangerous politicians in Europe of euro crisis”, if we want to believe German weekly DER SPIEGEL. According to German weekly the “Ten agitators to bring the European project is in serious danger,” are “profiteers from the crisis as those politicians try to gain political advantage with cheap populism.”

 

Of course this is just propaganda by Der Spiegel as Alexis Tsipras is not a danger to Europe, just a danger to the bankers who want to squeeze Greece dry and then force them to privatise all their assets so they can buy them - cheaply of course!

 

This must not happen!

Washington green-lights American donations to Syrian rebels — RT

Washington green-lights American donations to Syrian rebels — RT | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"The US government has permitted its citizens to start donating money to Syria’s opposition, paving the way for direct help from US nationals to the rebel fighters."

 

To put this outrage into context, please consider the following facts;

 

1. The event of 9/11 is blamed on Al Qaeda.

 

2. Syria's opposition is known to include Al Qaeda.

 

So the 'war on terror' that has cost the lives of millions of people as well as billions of dollars over the past 10 years has turned the 'terrorists' into the 'defenders of freedom'.

 

This is hypocrisy beyond words.

 

And now the US taxpayers are financially supporting the very terrorists who are the cause of the severe loss of their freedom through the increase in security to deter terrorism.

 

This is outrageous.

'Saudi regime relic of feudal barbarism'

"An American author and historian says the repressive regime of Al Saud is a “relic of feudal barbarism” and one of the “most backward regimes” in the world, Press TV reports.
 
“I don’t know how they can do this with a straight face. An absolute monarchy, a relic of feudal barbarism, one of the most backward regimes in the world is going to give lessons to Syria, a much more advanced country,” said Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley in an interview with Press TV on Saturday, referring to a recent UN resolution on Syria."

 

Webster Tarpley explains the meaning of the non-binding resolution passed by the UN General Assembly on Syria.

 

It seems that the there may be repercussions for the Persian Gulf Arab monarchs, which cannot be a bad thing considering their repressive regimes.

The Corbett Report | Corbett Report Radio 197 – American Terror Created by the FBI

"The Liberty City Seven. The Fort Dix Six. The Christmas Tree Bomber. Do you remember these spectacular terror busts, the supposed signs that the FBI has been diligently working behind the scenes to expose and foil terror plots in the US since 9/11? Did you know that every single instance of these spectacular terror busts has involved FBI informants training, funding, equipping and supplying these supposed jihadi terrorists? Join us tonight on Corbett Report Radio as we dissect the FBI’s plot to foil its own terror plots."

 

If you ever thought that the reported 'terror plots' were real, please listen to this broadcast.

 

The 'war on terror' has a deeper purpose than to foil 'terrorists'.

 

This, of course, provides an insight into the idea that 'terrorists' were not the perpetrators of 9/11, 7/7 and the other 'attacks'.

 

The war, it seems, was always a war on our freedom.

New Great Game: Western Spring’s Collision With Central Asia

New Great Game: Western Spring’s Collision With Central Asia | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"With recent meetings and joint statements at the SCO, it is obvious that the body, unlike NATO, has a peaceful Asian region on its agenda. The recent SCO summit sent out a clear message that it wants a peaceful and stable Afghanistan soon after the evacuation of the coalition forces. Such an agenda may directly collide with that of NATO’s. While NATO is seeking further military bases and installations, the SCO seeks peace and not conflict. The SCO clearly stood against the Libyan intervention and is now opposed to such a type of intrusion in Syria."

 

Understanding the agenda of NATO, that it is fomenting war and not seeking peace and democracy, makes it clear that they must be opposed.

 

Fortunately the SCO does understand the NATO agenda and is opposing it.

 

We must be careful not to be influenced negatively against Russia, China, Iran and other countries that have previously been branded as 'enemies' of the west.

 

Our future in a peaceful world may well rest in their ability to effectively oppose NATO.

The Nightmare on Padlocks Street - 68K Small Businesses Closed Down in First 6 Months of 2012 - Keep Talking Greece

The Nightmare on Padlocks Street - 68K Small Businesses Closed Down in First 6 Months of 2012 - Keep Talking Greece | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"The voracious recession is swallowing one after the other small businesses and enterprises in Greece. Day in, day out. Estimated 68,000 commercial and small businesses have ceased their activity from early 2011 until April 2012. The storm of padlocks has taken epidemic dimensions and is not excepted to calmed down quickly. Dozens of stores close down a daily basis leaving hundreds of families without income. The grim reality of debt-ridden Greek trade is described in most recent surveys conducted among small business owners."

 

The apparent 'solution' of austerity will never resolve the problems of the Greek economy, or that of any other country for that matter.

 

But of course it is not designed to solve the problems but merely to add more pressure so that important assets can be sold off cheaply to the 'asset-stripping' vultures that are part of the 'powers that should not be'.

 

Fortunately for the Greeks they have a potent opposition force!

The Corbett Report | Episode 238 – Meet the Corporatocracy

"Are corporations using the mask of government to collectivize wealth, selectively regulate their competition and completely subvert government by and for the people? You bet they are, and we have a name for that. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore corporatocracy from Wall Street and the Bolsheviks/Nazis to Government Sachs to the CFR and the International Crisis Group."

 

Whether you are aware or not of the vast wealth and influence of corporations over most aspects of our lives, you will find this broadcast interesting, particularly as the webpage provides links to further information.

 

The important aspect of learning about this 'corporatocracy' is to understand how it works so that you can disconnect from it.

 

Once we learn how to disconnect from them by not buying from them, their main source of power over us will decline and so will they.

Russia, China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Venezuela, Algeria, Iraq, Cuba, Belarus — 30 Nations Meet in Tehran for Alternative to Hillary Clinton’s Attack on Syria « TARPLEY.net

A short interview with Webster Tarpley on Press TV, with transcript that includes the following extract,

 

"I think the big turning point actually occurred yesterday. The Tehran consultative conference on Syria, it seems to me, is a landmark event in our times. 30 countries coming together on the basis, I would say, of national dependence and national dignity.

 

Not much more than that but that’s already a lot in today’s world, and certainly organized by the Iranian foreign ministry with the presence of Russia, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Venezuela, Sudan, a very important selection of countries across the world.

 

It obviously shows that Syria is not isolated in a way that Hillary Clinton says. This is really the first time that we’ve had a kind of task-oriented, anti-imperialist conference.

 

It’s very interesting here in the United States, the media has not a word about this. It’s a complete blackout. I’ve looked at the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the television stations, there’s nothing about this conference."

US position on Syria directly endorses terrorism - Lavrov — RT

US position on Syria directly endorses terrorism - Lavrov — RT | News on World Events | Scoop.it

"Lavrov also expressed his surprise that the UN Security Council refused to condemn acts of terror in Syria. The US permanent representative to the UN Susan Rice has stated that terror acts in Damascus contribute to speeding up the adoption of a resolution on Syria according to the Chapter 7 of the UN Statute, which implies harsh sanctions, including resorting to force.

“In other words this means ‘We are going to support such acts of terrorism until the UNSC does what we want’,” Lavrov commented on the US representative's actions.

 

Fortunately Lavrov and Putin understand the situation in Syria and are stepping up their opposition to the UN's interference there.

 

Russia and China, usually recognised as 'communist', are the countries standing up for democracy and the sovereign rights of Syria, and by extension all nations, not to have outside interference in their affairs.

 

This has to be resolved - but not by WWIII.
