Permalink Cleveland cops shot boy holding air gun 2 seconds after arriving at scene -Video


The last few minutes of this child's life, cut short by aggressive,
cruel & unbelievably stupid police officers...

New video released from a police shooting in Cleveland, Ohio, shows a patrol car arriving on the scene and officers barely hesitating before fatally shooting in the stomach a young boy playing with an air gun. The incident was prompted by a 911 call to the Cleveland Police Department claiming a boy was carrying a firearm and pointing it at people in the street. Police in the video are seen driving across the grass to a pavilion and hesitating briefly. As the boy approaches and seems to be pulling something from his waistband, he is shot dead. The 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice, died from a gunshot wound on Sunday. Police said they told Rice three times to raise his hands before shooting him twice. Yet despite believing Rice was in possession of a firearm, police later determined it was an airsoft gun – which shoots small plastic pellets – that did not have an orange safety indicator at the end of the barrel. The video, meanwhile, was released at the request of the boy’s family. Police also released audio of a 911 call, which reported a boy waving a gun. However, the caller did not know if it was real, and a dispatcher directed officers to the scene.

In a similar incident, the Israeli forces raided the village of Wadi Fukin, west of Bethlehem, and kidnapped thee young Palestinians. Three more Palestinians were also abducted by Israeli forces in al-Fawwar refugee camp, to the north of the city of al-Khalil (Hebron), situated 30 kilometers (18 miles) south of al-Quds. Israeli forces also "arrested" two Palestinians in Ramallah, in the central West Bank. Tel Aviv has cited no reason for the move.


Permalink The BBC Worries That Russia Has Military Control of its Own Coastline

The Saker "Russian Commander Warns US Could Control Whole Gulf of Mexico" - How is that for a ridiculous headline? You like it? Well, it is just a little variation of a BBC headline today: "Nato commander warns Russia could control whole Black Sea" Here is an except from this article:

"Russia's top military commander, Gen Valerii Gerasimov, has warned that US "militarisation" of the annexed Florida Peninsula could be used to exert control over the whole Gulf of Mexico."

Well, the real excerpt was just slightly different:

"Nato's top military commander, Gen Philip Breedlove, has warned that Russian "militarisation" of the annexed Crimea Peninsula could be used to exert control over the whole Black Sea."

So is there a difference? Of course not. Except one: American exceptionalism, of course. Come to think of it, there is another difference: the US and NATO just tried to take control of Crimea via the Maidan color revolution whereas Russia did not try to take control of Florida. That, of course, also begs the following question: if the US and NATO suspect that Russia might use the Crimea Peninsula to control the whole of the Black Sea, then would it be most unreasonable to ask what exactly the US and NATO were hoping to achieve had they succeeded in taking over Crimea? This is, of course, absolutely ridiculous and yet another example of the mind-blowing hypocrisy western corporate media.


Permalink Suit says Goldman Sachs, others rigged metals prices

Banks Goldman Sachs, HSBC and Standard Bank and a unit of chemical producer BASF conspired to manipulate platinum and palladium prices, according to a US lawsuit filed this week. The class-action suit, filed Tuesday in New York, said the four defendants shared nonpublic information about client purchases and sale orders to manipulate prices for their benefit and to the detriment of plaintiffs. This illegal sharing of information "gave them the ability to execute trades... in advance of those (price) movements," the complaint said. "This unlawful behaviour allowed Defendants to reap substantial profits, while non-insiders, which include Plaintiffs and members of the Class, were injured." The plaintiff, Modern Settings, a US maker of jewelry and other metal products, alleges it lost value on "tens of thousands of transactions" due to the conspiracy, the complaint said. Investors in the commodities "lost millions of dollars as a result of this conduct," said Labaton Sucharow, the firm representing the plaintiffs, in a statement.


Permalink West accused of 'sleepwalking' as Ukraine edges towards crisis

Ukraine is teetering on the edge of collapse, but the West is "sleepwalking" in its response to the impending crisis, say observers. The West has made a catalogue of errors since Ukraine's fateful decision to turn its back on Russia, to which Moscow responded by launching a proxy war that has made Kyiv's already dire economic situation worse. The EU's Association Agreement with Kyiv, which commits Ukraine to moving closer to Europe, has not come with enough financial support to re-boot the economy. "There is a currently a major hole in the Western financing package for Ukraine of somewhere in the order of $10bn for the next six months," says Tim Ash, head of emerging markets research at Standard Bank. The Institute of International Finance (IFF), a global financial industry group, was also in Kyiv last week and came to pretty much the same conclusion. Despite a recent ceasefire with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, Kyiv will suffer a "double-digit recession this year", the IFF said in a report.

Permalink 8000 Afghan civilian casualties reported in US-led war in 2014: UN

The United Nations says nearly 8,000 Afghan civilians have been killed or wounded this year in the US-led war. On Wednesday, Mark Bowden, the UN humanitarian coordinator, appealed for USD 405 million to cover the costs of humanitarian programs for Afghan people in 2015. More than 100,000 people have been forced from their homes in Afghanistan while 4,000 families are currently facing a tough time without adequate housing as winter is approaching, Bowden said. Half a million Afghan children die each year of preventable disease across the war-torn country, he added. Some 1.2 million children are “acutely malnourished” and food insecurity affects almost eight million people in Afghanistan, the UN coordinator said. [...] The United States, Britain, and their allies invaded Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, as part of their so-called war on terror. Although the offensive removed the Taliban from power, insecurity remains across the country.


Permalink Russia, China blast US for human rights

Amid protests, Russia, China urge US to stop lecturing about human rights. New violent protests triggered by a grand jury decision not to indict a police officer who killed a black teenager in Ferguson have prompted Russia and China to criticize the US for human rights issues and racial discrimination in the country. Russian Foreign Ministry's human rights envoy Konstantin Dolgov said on Tuesday the protests in Ferguson and other US cities showed serious challenges to the American society and its stability. "Racial discrimination, racial and ethnic tensions are major challenges to the American democracy, to stability and integrity of the American society," the Russian envoy said. "We may only hope that US authorities seriously deal with those issues and other serious challenges in the human rights field in their own country and stop what they have been doing all along recently — playing an aggressive mentor lecturing other countries about how to meet human rights standards," he added. When asked about the violence over the case in the US, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the case is an internal US affair but no country is perfect regarding human rights. "We can learn from each other in this area," she said.

In the 25-minute announcement, he slammed news outlets and social media - suggesting they were responsible for the tension after the August 9 shooting, rather than the shooting itself. 'The most significant challenge encountered in this investigation has been the 24-hour news cycle and its insatiable appetite for something, for anything to talk about, following closely behind with the non-stop rumors on social media,' he said. The users of social media promptly expressed their shock at the claim.

Permalink 41 men targeted but 1,147 people killed: US drone strikes – the facts on the ground

New analysis of data conducted by human rights group Reprieve shared with the Guardian, raises questions about accuracy of intelligence guiding ‘precise’ strikes. The drones came for Ayman Zawahiri on 13 January 2006, hovering over a village in Pakistan called Damadola. Ten months later, they came again for the man who would become al-Qaida’s leader, this time in Bajaur. Eight years later, Zawahiri is still alive. Seventy-six children and 29 adults, according to reports after the two strikes, are not. However many Americans know who Zawahiri is, far fewer are familiar with Qari Hussain. Hussain was a deputy commander of the Pakistani Taliban, a militant group aligned with al-Qaida that trained the would-be Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, before his unsuccessful 2010 attack. The drones first came for Hussain years before, on 29 January 2008. Then they came on 23 June 2009, 15 January 2010, 2 October 2010 and 7 October 2010. Finally, on 15 October 2010, Hellfire missiles fired from a Predator or Reaper drone killed Hussain, the Pakistani Taliban later confirmed. For the death of a man whom practically no American can name, the US killed 128 people, 13 of them children, none of whom it meant to harm.

(And we pointed out that conservatives are as disturbed as liberals by the collapse of social mobility in modern America.) A paper published last year by University of Ottawa economics professor Miles Corak tells us exactly where the American Dream has gone … to Scandinavia. Denmark, Norway and Finland have the most social mobility (and Sweden is not that far behind). On the other hand, the UK, Italy and America have the least social mobility. [...] Norway is arguably the world’s most prosperous country. Denmark is 3rd; Sweden is 6th; and Finland is 8th … but the U.S. has dropped down to 10th place.


Permalink Neocon weekend coup d'état

xymphora The Jewish billionaires have finally told Barry their price for funding his very comfortable retirement - more Wars For The Jews. They had to wait for the Republicans to retake the Senate so they could force a neocon Secretary of Defense. In quick succession in the last few days we've seen:

1. Barry extending and expanding the War For The Jews in Afghanistan;
2. the mysterious collapse of the Iran peace talks (Iran thought they were headed for a deal and suddenly the other side turned away - see also "France Mistral Ship Update: Hollande Suspends Decision To Deliver Warships To Russia" connected for the War For The Jews against Russia being carried on in Ukraine);
3. the rather vicious firing of Hagel, the viciousness coming no doubt from the Jewish idea that he is an anti-Semite due to his skepticism at running all American foreign and military policy solely for the benefit of Zionism;
4. a new call for more sanctions on Iran in order to undermine any chances for peace (note the change from November 21 - "Why Is AIPAC Suddenly So Silent on Iran?" to November 24 - "AIPAC Leads Call for Sanctions to Sabotage Iran Talks").

Wayne Madsen Hagel’s Head Delivered to the Neocons on a Silver Platter || Hagel wanted a clear administration determination on what its priorities were in the Middle East. After making it clear at Cabinet meetings that ISIL was the primary threat to the entire Middle East region, Hagel was frustrated at the push-back from policy makers like Rice and her compatriot Power. To defeat ISIL quickly, there had to be an end to U.S. military advice and weaponry, in addition to finances, getting into ISIL hands through interlocutors like McCain’s friends in the Free Syrian Army and the government of Turkey. That is where Hagel ran into opposition from the Obama administration’s «Responsibility to Protect» (R2P) crowd of Rice, Power, Rhodes, and the rest of those who Hagel once referred to as Washington’s «Jewish Lobby». These extreme interventionists are in bed with Israel’s government in providing aid to Syria’s Al Nusra Front guerrillas who are allied with ISIL. With Hagel and Dempsey arguing for consistency in America’s policy against ISIL, which would entail coming to an accommodation with Assad and Damascus, a clash with the pro-Israeli neocons was bound to occur. When push came to shove, Hagel was shoved out the door.

Permalink US promotes terrorism by funding Takfiris: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin says the United States promotes terrorism by financing terrorists and creating division instead of strengthening unity among world nations. The Russian leader made the comments on Friday during a speech at the plenary session of the 11th meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi. “In Syria, just like in old times, the US and its allies began to provide militants with direct funding and weapons to incite filling of their ranks by mercenaries from different countries,” Putin said, adding that this is how the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group has turned into a “de facto army.” “They [ISIL terrorists] are active in a highly effective manner, from the military perspective, they are real professionals,” he stated. Putin also said another reason why the ISIL has gained so much power is because the so-called anti-ISIL coalition, led by the US, is creating division among regional powers. The Russian president went on to say that such “unilateral dictatorship” does not help anti-terror efforts; instead it causes “growing chaos” in stable states. Those who support terrorism should reflect on their actions, said Putin, stressing that the same terrorists they are backing will “someday come and sow death to their countries.”

Permalink U.S. Among Only 3 Countries at U.N. Officially Backing Nazism & Holocaust-Denial; Israel Parts Company from Them; Germany Abstains

Eric Zuesse In a U.N. vote, on November 21st, only three countries — the United States, Ukraine, and Canada — voted against a resolution to condemn racist facsism, or “nazism,” and to condemn denial of Germany’s World War II Holocaust against primarily Jews. This measure passed the General Assembly, on a vote of 115 in favor, 3 against, and 55 abstentions (the abstentions were in order not to offend U.S. President Obama, who was opposed to the resolution). The measure had been presented to their General Assembly after a period of more than a decade of rising “neo-Nazi” (i.e., racist-fascist) movements in Europe, including especially in Ukraine, where two Ukrainian nazi parties were installed by the U.S. into high posts in Ukraine’s new government, immediately after the democratically elected Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych was overthrown in a violent coup in Kiev during February of this year. [...] Ukraine voted no on this resolution because this new Ukrainian Government is the only nazi regime in the world.[...] Germany abstained from voting on this resolution because their leader, Chancellor Angela Merkel, does not want to offend the U.S. President by voting for a resolution that the U.S. Government strongly opposes; and also because, as today’s leader of the land where nazism started — in the first nazi political party, the Nazi Party of Germany — she does not want Germany to vote against a resolution that condemns Nazism.


Permalink Putin Will Not Let Nazis Overrun East Ukraine

You can read the full interview here. But the following quote is, I believe, crucial:

"Today there is fighting in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian central authorities have sent the armed forces there and they even use ballistic missiles. Does anybody speak about it? Not a single word. And what does it mean? What does it tell us? This points to the fact, that you want the Ukrainian central authorities to annihilate everyone there, all of their political foes and opponents. Is that what you want? We certainly don't. And we won't let it happen."

The Russian original sentence is: "Вы этого хотите? Мы не хотим. И не позволим." I personally would translate this sentence "You want that? We don't. And we will not allow this." You could also translate the last part as "we will not permit this". This is not an expression of a preference or a much more vague "we won't condone" or "we oppose". This is a very categorical statement which warns that Russia will proactively prevent such an outcome. As I said it many times here already: Russia will not let the Nazis overrun Novorussia.


Permalink The Englishman who took a bullet for Russia

I have been aware of the numerous reports by Graham Phillips from Novorussia and I knew that he had been kidnapped by Ukrainian goons not once, but twice. What always touched me in his reports was the visible fondness of the Novorussians for Graham, and in this video below you will see them calling him "Gremchik". Not even Graham (terrible!) British accent could be an obstacle for the respect and affection the Novorussians showed him (and in this video, they are clearly upset and distressed at the fact that he got hurt). I know that Graham did not truly "take a bullet for Russia", but that he probably took it for the cause of honest journalism and I would say for the Truth. But I am also quite sure that for the Novorussians it was "our Gremchik" who took a bullet for "us". In my opinion President Putin should bestow the medal "for bravery" to Graham just as he did to that other fantastic reporter, Anastasia Popopva, for her truly heroic reporting from Syria. Check out the video (left) of how Phillips was wounded. He took a shrapnel wound to his lower back and his life is not in danger. I wish him a prompt recovery and I hope that his work will finally get the recognition it deserves. And even if his courage and integrity are never recognized in the West, his example proves one more time that there is this "other West" which is not hostile to Russia at all and which is principled and honorable. - The Saker

Permalink Planned Israeli Bill Would Revoke Residency for ‘Bad People’ and Their Relatives

A planned, but as-of-yet not introduced bill is being hyped by Israel’s far-right coalition, which would give the Interior Ministry broad power to revoke the residency of Arabs deemed to be a threat to “state sovereignty.” Incredibly, the bill will also allow the ministry to expel their relatives, even if they haven’t done anything. Though it’s being couched as an “anti-terror” measure, the bill also covers people who the government perceives as “inciting violence” through speech or activism, as well as “rioters” and rock-throwers. And obviously all of their families. Interior Minister Gilad Erdan embraced the idea to give him this huge new power, which Jerusalem’s mayor couched as granting the Israeli government to nullify citizenship or residency of “bad people.” Naturally, the bill only applies to Arabs, and seems to be focused squarely on occupied East Jerusalem.

Prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu reportedly banged on the table and said “it cannot be that Arabs can live in Jewish towns, but Jews can’t live in Arab towns. A country within a country is developing.” He said the law was needed because Palestinians refused to recognise Israel as a Jewish state and Israeli Arabs were seeking autonomy in the Galilee and the Negev.
