Do our governments represent us, or political party donors? Bob Carr,Australian Foreign Minister, (Mar. 2012-Sept. 2013) under Labour PMs Gillard & Rudd reveals that organized Jewry buys Australian foreign policy. This is typical of all Western nations. Guess who is dictating Western policy in Ukraine, and ratcheting up war tensions?
Support for the eurosceptic UK Independence Party (UKIP) has spiked to 20 per cent while Britain's ruling Conservatives have hit their lowest rating this year, according to a poll. ● The ComRes survey for the Independent on Sunday and Sunday Mirror newspapers showed Nigel Farage's UKIP up four points since last month to achieve its highest ever result in a poll by the consultancy. Farage's personal approval rating increased seven points since last month to 27 per cent, level with Prime Minister David Cameron, according to the survey. The poll comes around two weeks after the UKIP leader was widely judged to have performed well in two live televised debates with Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, over Britain's future in European Union. In the debates both leaders drew battle lines ahead of European Parliament elections being held on May 22.
The US government is preparing the American people for a new world war by raising allegations against Russia and China over the crisis in Ukraine, an analyst writes in a column for the Press TV website. ● Gordon Duff said the US officials have been fabricating stories in recent weeks, telling people “
that none of their weapons can keep them safe, not from the Russian and Chinese hordes.” Tensions between Moscow and the West remain high after Crimea separated from Ukraine and requested to join Russia after a referendum on March 16, in which nearly 97 percent of the participants voted for rejoining Russia. Russia subsequently accepted Crimea’s request. “
Zionist extremists bent on a full-scale world war between the US, China and Russia will control two thirds of America’s government by January 2015,” further wrote Duff. The analyst said the belligerent Zionists will then nominate two “pro-war” candidates for the next presidential election. “
This will not be an election, it will be an apocalypse,” he wrote.
In new book, Bob Carr claims office of former Australian PM Julia Gillard was effectively held hostage by Jewish lobby. ● Former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr has suggested Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s dogged support of Israel was due to the "subcontracting" of Australian foreign policy to Jewish donors, The Guardian reported on Wednesday. In his upcoming book "Diary of a Foreign Minister," Carr claims the "extreme right-wing" pro-Israel lobby in Melbourne wielded "extraordinary influence" on Gillard. The book includes private text messages between the two – published without Gillard's consent – which detail the pair's disagreement on Australia's support (or lack thereof) for the November 2012 United Nations vote concerning Palestinian observer status.
Ukip leader judged to have beaten Liberal Democrat opposite number in head-to-head by 69% of those polled. ● Nigel Farage triumphed in the second television debate on Europe by a clear-cut 69% to 31%, an instant poll showed, suggesting that a more emotional but often overscripted Nick Clegg failed to convince viewers that Ukip is selling the British people a "dangerous con" and a "fantasy". The Guardian/ICM findings after the BBC2 debate were almost exactly matched by a separate YouGov poll for the Sun, showing that in a sometimes brutal debate, with both men accusing the other of lying, it was the Ukip leader who came out ahead by an even bigger margin than a week earlier. Farage scored points as he lashed out at big business and wealthy landowners and warned there will be violence on the streets of Europe if the EU is not dismantled and democracy handed back to nation states. He said his aim was to protect the white working class. The result as demonstrated by the polls will be a heavy blow not just to Clegg, but also to David Cameron, who will be terrified that the two hour-long TV debates have given Ukip not just massive publicity, but political momentum for the European elections on 22 May.
Over 300,000 US citizens have signed petitions for their states to withdraw from the United States of America. ● They make references to the Declaration of Independence, whereby a situation may emerge when it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, to ensure security and happiness, the federal media report. The 300,000 Americans represent a total of 29 states. They want to be granted the right to peacefully secede from the United States or allowed the holding of a referendum on such secession. Those who have signed the petition feel that President Obama's economic reforms have proved ineffective. They claim the government has violated the rights and freedoms of Americans in the past two years.
● The US will not get involved in a “military excursion” in Ukraine, President Barack Obama said, stressing that Washington will pursue diplomatic means in the standoff with Russia over Crimea. "
We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine," Obama told San Diego’s KNSD TV. "
There is a better path, but I think even the Ukrainians would acknowledge that for us to engage Russia militarily would not be appropriate and would not be good for Ukraine either.” ● At the same time, Churkin told US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power to stop insulting Russia if Washington wants to see Russia’s future cooperation in the UN Security Council. During her speech, Power accused Russia of illegally annexing Crimea. “
A thief can steal property, but that does not confer the right of ownership on the thief,” she said. Power "
dropped to the level of the tabloid press...it is simply unacceptable to listen to these insults addressed to our country,” Churkin said.
NBC San Diego: President Obama: No U.S. Military Action in Ukraine
A Dutch Documentary (with English subtitles) about the Israel lobby in the US. || For many years now the American foreign policy has been characterized by the strong tie between the United States and Israel. Does the United States in fact keep Israel on its feet? And how long will it continue to do so? In March 2006 the American political scientists John Mearsheimer (University of Chicago) and Steve Walt (Harvard) published the controversial article 'The Israel Lobby and US foreign policy'. In it they state that it is not, or no longer, expedient for the US to support and protect present-day Israel. The documentary sheds light on both parties involved in the discussion: those who wish to maintain the strong tie between the US and Israel, and those who were critical of it and not infrequently became 'victims' of the lobby. The question arises to what extend the pro-Israel lobby ultimately determines the military and political importance of Israel itself. Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson (Colin Powell's former chief-of-staff) explains how the lobby's influence affects the decision-making structure in the White House. With political scientist John Mearsheimer, neocon Richard Perle, lobby organization AIPAC, televangelist John Hagee, historian Tony Judt, Human Rights Watch director Kenneth Roth, colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Democrat Earl Hilliard, Israeli peace negotiator Daniel Levy and investigative journalist Michael Massing.

Barry Grey ■ In an extraordinary speech delivered Tuesday on the floor of the US Senate, the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, accused the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of spying on committee staff members conducting an investigation into the agency’s program of detention, interrogation and torture under President George W. Bush. || Feinstein’s speech was all the more remarkable since she is one of the most slavish defenders of the intelligence agencies and is herself, along with the congressional leadership of both parties and the Obama White House, complicit in the criminal and anti-democratic practices she claimed to be opposing. Feinstein has unreservedly defended mass spying by the National Security Agency and joined in the official witch-hunt against whistle-blowers such as Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning. The fact that she felt obliged to go to the floor of the Senate and charge CIA leaders with impeachable offenses testifies to the increasingly naked manner in which the US security agencies are dispensing with even the trappings of democracy and asserting dictatorial control. [...] What Feinstein did not mention was the Obama administration’s exoneration in 2012 of CIA officials responsible for destroying the tapes. Nor did she note the suppression in 2004 of Abu Ghraib photos by the Pentagon, with the support of both parties in Congress; Obama’s reneging in 2009 on his pledge to release the suppressed photos; or her own refusal to pursue charges against Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for lying to her committee last March when he was asked if the NSA was collecting private data on millions of Americans.
The parliament of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea has adopted an independence declaration from Ukraine which is necessary for holding a March 16 referendum. “
We, the members of the parliament of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the Sevastopol City Council, with regard to the charter of the United Nations and a whole range of other international documents and taking into consideration the confirmation of the status of Kosovo by the United Nations International Court of Justice on July, 22, 2010, which says that unilateral declaration of independence by a part of the country doesn’t violate any international norms, make this decision,” says the text of the declaration, which was published by the Crimean media. The document was adopted during an extraordinary session of parliament. 78 of 100 members of the parliament voted in favor of the declaration.
The CIA Inspector General’s Office has asked the Justice Department to investigate allegations of malfeasance at the spy agency in connection with a yet-to-be released Senate Intelligence Committee report into the CIA’s secret detention and interrogation program, McClatchy has learned. The criminal referral may be related to what several knowledgeable people said was CIA monitoring of computers used by Senate aides to prepare the study. The monitoring may have violated an agreement between the committee and the agency. The development marks an unprecedented breakdown in relations between the CIA and its congressional overseers amid an extraordinary closed-door battle over the 6,300-page report on the agency’s use of waterboarding and harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists held in secret overseas prisons. The report is said to be a searing indictment of the program. The CIA has disputed some of the reports findings.
Gilad Atzmon ■ Dieudonné M'bala M'bala , the genius outspoken French comedian who rebelled against the primacy of Jewish suffering has been banned from entering Britain. The Home Office has declared the performer persona non grata and warned he will not be allowed into the country. It has alerted airlines, other transport companies and border officials that the performer, whose stage name is Dieudonné, is an "excluded" individual. A spokesperson said: "We can confirm that Mr Dieudonné is subject to an exclusion order. With 80% of out Tory MPs being Conservative Friends Of Israel you would expect England becoming a ghetto. ● As we all know, in recent years the British governments have launched more than just one immoral Zionist interventionist war. In the name of elementary ‘freedom’ we dropped bombs and killed over a million of innocent Muslims. Hence, I am curious to know how the UK Home Office justifies its latest measure against freedom of speech. Do they really believe that a French comedian who hardly speaks English endangers our homeland security? Humour is seemingly the last pocket of resistance. They are really afraid of being laughed at, after all, Dieudonné is telling the truth that The Guardians Of Zion can no longer suppress.

Amid a very low voter turnout, Egypt’s election committee claims 98.1 percent approval of a new, military-backed constitution in the first referendum since the US-backed Army ousted the nation's first freely-elected president. Egypt's High Election Commission announced Saturday that only 38.6 percent of the country's more than 53 million eligible voters took part in the two-day poll.

truthjihad.com: Phony unanimity proves Egypt’s “constitution” a sham ■ That 98% figure says it all. Whenever 98% of voters supposedly vote for anything, you know the “election” is a sham.

Abu Dharr: Who exactly is General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi? ■ Born to a Moroccan Jewish mother, his maternal uncle was a member of David Ben Gurion’s political party. How did this Sephardi sleeper stay within the loop without being exposed for so long and rising to the top spot in the military? [...] But who is this al-Sisi? At least one American news report wants us to believe he is an “Islamist” — but a moderate one! There are murmurs and rumors in Egypt about al-Sisi’s mother. Who is she? And the available answers are that she is a Moroccan Jewess. In normal circumstances there would be nothing wrong with being Moroccan or Jewish. But we are not dealing with normal circumstances. Someone whose mother is Moroccan and Jewish and then becomes Egypt’s Minister of Defense, and now the ultimate authority, raises serious questions. Add to that the favorable press he is receiving in Israel and we have exclamation marks hugging question marks all over our mind and psyche. This coup leader, illegitimate ruler, and arbitrary chief executive and commander for the last two months, and before that the Defense Minister — who is he? This Mr. al-Sisi has been complicit with the Israelis in killing innocent people in the Sinai Peninsula. Our source in Egypt who is very active politically and very well versed on Egyptian matters investigated al-Sisi’s family lineage. And what he came up with is that there is reason to believe that al-Sisi is a crypto-Muslim.
The similarities underscore the point that no matter which party is in power, Americans are forced to endure the same empty rhetoric on an annual basis. “Barack Obama has gone from blaming George W. Bush to plagiarizing George W. Bush,” Thiessen told Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Noting how the two speeches were “eerily familiar,” Thiessen pointed to some examples.
”There were lines like ‘Our job is to help Americans build a future of hope and opportunity, a future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy, a future of hope and opportunity requires that all citizens have affordable and available healthcare, extending opportunity and hope depends on a stable supply of energy,’ all of that came from the 2007 State of the Union from George W. Bush,” he told Kelly.
Politico’s Dylan Byers added that although Obama didn’t lift any lines directly from Bush’s 2007 speech, the repeated use of the word “opportunity” was an integral characteristic of both speeches, while both also ended with an emotional narrative about a wounded veteran.
Michael Grimm caught on camera making threat to political reporter after interview following state of union address. ● New York congressman Michael Grimm has been filmed verbally threatening a news reporter after an interview following US president Barack Obama's state of the union address. After refusing to answer a question about an investigation into his 2010 campaign finances, the 43-year-old Republican is seen walking away, before returning to threaten the NY1 broadcaster's political reporter, Michael Scotto. Congressman Michael Grimm does not want to talk about some of the allegations concerning his campaign finances," Scotto says to camera as Grimm leaves. Much of the conversation is inaudible in the recording, but according to a transcript from NY1, Grimm said: "Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this fucking balcony." Scotto replies: "Why? I just wanted to ask you," before Grimm says, "No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy."
Little Content and a Lot of Recycled Rhetoric - A rambling, 80+ minute State of the Union Address tonight gave President Obama an opportunity to lay out his foreign policy positions, but 60 minutes into the talk he hadn’t touched the matter at all. ● When he finally did, what followed was a confusing muddle of claims of success and vague expressions of hope for things he’d like to accomplish without any specific plans attached. Bragging about ending the Iraq War, President Obama touted his plan to “end” the Afghan War, while openly talking about an open-ended deployment of US troops on the ground there engaged in “counter-terrorism” operations. A war “ended” and simultaneously endless. He then went on to talk about ending the “permanent war footing” the United States has been on since 9/11, but openly talked up increased increased military spending for “future missions” and intervention abroad.

The Obama political operation that once buried Hillary Rodham Clinton’s White House ambitions is now rapidly converging around her possible 2016 presidential bid, conferring on Mrs. Clinton enormous early advantages in money, expertise and voter targeting techniques. ● On Thursday, Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” that played an important role in helping re-elect President Obama, announced that it was formally aligning itself with Mrs. Clinton and would begin raising money to fend off potential opponents for 2016. The group — the largest Democratic super PAC in the country — also named new directors, appointments that will cement the group’s pro-Clinton tilt and thrust veterans of Mr. Obama’s political and fund-raising operation into the center of the post-Obama Democratic Party. The move is perhaps the earliest start to big-dollar fund-raising in support of a nonincumbent presidential candidate, providing a fund-raising portal for wealthy Clinton supporters eager to help her White House prospects — and to the legions of others eager to ingratiate themselves with Mrs. Clinton and her inner circle.
The best democracy money can buy. Foreign campaign donations are illegal under the Federal Election Campaign Act. Everyone who received money from this Rabbi in Israel needs to be removed from office right now and banned from public life if not tossed in jail. ● FBI investigation puts Republican congressman with assistant of influential Rabbi Pinto; assistant now facing embezzlement charges. An FBI investigation into Republican Congressman Michael Grimm’s campaign finances ties him to Israeli Rabbi Pinto through donations of more than half a million dollars, and has also led to suspicions of senior Israeli police officers accepting bribes from Pinto. The affair came to light due to an FBI wiretap agreed to by Pinto as part of a settlement with the bureau, after Pinto filed a blackmail complaint resulting the rabbi having to testify against Grimm, the New York Republican Congressman and former FBI agent. Grimm was under investigation by the FBI for illegal donations to his 2010 election campaign. Some of the donations reportedly came from sources affiliated with Pinto.
Gilad Atzmon: The Rabbi And The Congressman
Over a year later, the Obama administration has finally confirmed that Islamic extremists were responsible for the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, in Sept. 2012. This undermines then-Hillary Clinton’s State Department and its vehement denial that the Benghazi terrorist attack that was the result of an anti-Muslim YouTube video. This morning, the State Department announced that the Muslim extremists group Ansar al-Sharia was responsible for the attacks. According to Secretary of State John Kerry, two branches of Ansar al-Sharia participated in the terrorist attack—the Benghazi branch and the Darnah branch. Darnah is a port city in Libya, approximately 180 miles northwest of Benghazi. Ansar al-Sharia’s Tunisia branch was also behind an attack on Americans in Tunis last year.
American lawmakers have strongly criticized the American Studies Association (ASA) for deciding to boycott Israel for human rights violations. In a letter signed by 134 House members, the organization is accused of bigotry for boycotting Israeli academic institutions in protest of Tel Aviv's brutal treatment of Palestinians. Sixty-nine Democrats and 65 Republicans signed onto the letter, which was organized by Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.). The boycott decision is part of a larger international effort to win boycotts of Israeli institutions over its policies toward Palestinians. The American Studies Association is a professional group of about 4,000 scholars who study US history and culture.

For the first time in history, most members of Congress are millionaires, according to a new analysis of personal financial disclosure data by the Center for Responsive Politics. ● Of 534 current members of Congress, at least 268 had an average net worth of $1 million or more in 2012, according to disclosures filed last year by all members of Congress and candidates. The median net worth for the 530 current lawmakers who were in Congress as of the May filing deadline was $1,008,767 -- an increase from last year when it was $966,000. In addition, at least one of the members elected since then, Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), is a millionaire, according to forms she filed as a candidate. (There is currently one vacancy in Congress.) Last year only 257 members, or about 48 percent of lawmakers, had a median net worth of at least $1 million.
Manuel Valls – shabbos goy and current Minister of the Interior in the French government (see photo, in the middle) is a regular of the CRIF meetings and intervened during one of the Congress of the friends of Israel and was against the Palestinian adhesion in the UN in September 2011 claiming that ” it could antagonize Israel”. During an interview for Radio Judaica, he declared: “Through my wife i am eternally linked to the Jewish community and Israel…”
■ A man would normally be linked to his wife for the length of his life ("Until Death Does Us Part"). Too, one would think that at such an elevated age his poor wife will have had enough of him anyway...Well, this may not be so in the case of Manuel Valls and his dear Israel. The operative concept here is 'eternally'. Nothing less. It would seem that Mr. Valls holds the rabid, land grabbing, child molesting, organ thieving settler state of so-called "Israel" above his very own wife. - Does this hierarchy of loyalties strike anyone else as somewhat peculiar, or is it just this editor? ;-) La quenelle!
