Police say emergency services will be performing drills in the financial district on Sunday.
Exercises will be conducted in order to test `crisis-readiness `with emergency services and building owners in the downtown core.
The Bay Street and King Street area will be primarily affected between the hours of 6a.m. and 2p.m. with a number of officers and paramedics testing response times.
Officials say the exercises are not related to the events in Ottawa and Montreal and that they have been planning it for some time.
The events in Ottawa were foreshadowed by National Security drills as well/

I guess you are aware of the jittery markets over the last few weeks. Perhaps more sanctions could crash them and destroy our economy. These sanctions were based on a fabrication that Flight MH 17 was shot down by the Russians. The German intelligence service has determined Flight MH 17 was shot down by Ukrainian rebels. Russia DID NOT DO IT! I give credit to the Germans for abandoning the rhetoric. I cannot fathom how our government would slap the face of Vladimir Putin and challenge him to economic warfare with the threat of actual conflict that could lay waste to our nation in a thermo nuclear conflict.
I would strongly suggest our intelligence service be conditioned to acquire and report on STRATEGIC THREATS and not spy on ordinary Canadians like the notorious Stasi the East German police state apparatus. As I said before the truth is the first casualty. It always is. Why should we destroy the global economy based on a fabrication? I would highly recommend the film The Lives of Others a story on the Stasi and spying on regular citizens.
CONSPIRACY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: The Lives Of Others
Using logic, much can be understood. In WWII Russia was our ally. Ukrainian nationalists were recruited into the Einsatzgruppen SS Death Squads. The progeny of these individuals claim Russia shot down a plane and are our enemies. Our leaders are held under the sway if not outright control of the Bilderberg Group a post WWII Nazi fascist organization founded by an SS Colonel who ran intelligence for IG Farben the makers of Zyklon B the poison gas that was used in the death camps. It becomes clearly obvious why our government extols the fairy tale that Russia shot down Flight MH 17. They are under the control of an organization restoring the Fourth Reich as was always alluded to in the Red House Report of U.S. intelligence.
This government craves all the power the enemy we fought in WWII abused. They are proposing legislation to allow a court process based on the secret evidence of a Gestapo in waiting. This is anathema to any values we have held dear. The harder we push in this direction, the more likely Russia may face a day when their Great Patriotic War will be settled upon our heads. As my father always said, the best fight is the one you don't get into. If the downward spiral of the markets is not stopped, I'd hate to hold public office and face a hungry and poor electorate devastated by a financial collapse. My grandfathers lived through those issues. Their generation's mistake was they thought it couldn't happen to them. I surmise this generation is of the same opinion. The awakening will be devastating.

Deadly Ukraine Crash
German Intelligence Claims Pro-Russian Separatists Downed MH17
Germany's foreign intelligence agency says its review of the crash of a Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 in Ukrainian has concluded it was brought down by a missile fired by pro-Russian separatists near Donetsk.
After completing a detailed analysis, Germany's foreign intelligence service, the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), has concluded that pro-Russian rebels were responsible for the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 19 in eastern Ukraine while on route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
In an Oct. 8 presentation given to members of the parliamentary control committee, the Bundestag body responsible for monitoring the work of German intelligence, BND President Gerhard Schindler provided ample evidence to back up his case, including satellite images and diverse photo evidence. The BND has intelligence indicating that pro-Russian separatists captured a BUK air defense missile system at a Ukrainian military base and fired a missile on July 17 that exploded in direct proximity to the Malaysian aircraft, which had been carrying 298 people.
Evidence obtained shortly after the accident suggested the aircraft had been shot down by pro-Russian militants. Both the governments of Russia and Ukraine had mutually accused each other of responsibility for the crash. After a Dutch investigative commission reviewed the flight recorder, it avoided placing any blame for the crash. Some 189 residents of the Netherlands perished in the downing of Flight MH17.
BND's Schindler says his agency has come up with unambiguous findings. One is that Ukrainian photos have been manipulated and that there are details indicating this. He also told the panel that Russian claims the missile had been fired by Ukrainian soldiers and that a Ukrainian fighter jet had been flying close to the passenger jet were false.
"It was pro-Russian separatists," Schindler said of the crash, which involved the deaths of four German citizens. A spokesman for the German Federal Prosecutor's Office told SPIEGEL that an investigation has been opened into unknown perpetrators because of the possibility that the crash had been a war crime.

Loukanikos (Greek: Λουκάνικος: sausage) or more commonly Louk, sometimes confused by the media for Kanellos, has been present at nearly every recent protest in Athens in the past few years. This stray has ostensibly become the symbol of Greek protests against the IMF- and ECB-prompted austerity measures. There's uncertainty about the claim that Loukanikos and Thodoris may, in fact, be the same dog.
In September 2011, on the occasion of a striking policemen's union marching in the centre of Athens, Loukanikos, according to eyewitnesses, was "initially confused" between two opposite sides both of uniformed policemen but, when the riot police contingent attacked their striking colleagues, the dog sided with "those who were being attacked."
Loukanikos' health was "severely burdened" by the inhaling of tear gas and other chemicals during the many riots in which he participated but lived until approximately ten years of age, dying peacefully in May 2014 at the home of a person who cared for him.
When the time arrives for the struggle for Liberty, remember Loukanikos. The struggle against the forces of darkness and outright evil requires heroes. Sometimes they have four legs not two. Man's best friend was a friend to his entire nation and the world. When the need arose, he did not shirk his responsibilities. Will you?

There are many opinions that the United States went bankrupt in the past and the nation was turned into a corporation. The 1930's was one 20th century occasion. The Nixon era another when the gold standard changed.
The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in session. I refer you to the "Acts of the Forty-First Congress," Section 34, Session III, chapters 61 and 62. On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act titled: "An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia." This is also known as the "Act of 1871." What does this mean? Well, it means that Congress, under no constitutional authority to do so, created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia, which is a ten mile square parcel of land.
What??? How could they do that? Moreover, WHY would they do that? To explain, let's look at the circumstances of those days. The Act of 1871 was passed at a vulnerable time in America. Our nation was essentially bankrupt — weakened and financially depleted in the aftermath of the Civil War. The Civil War itself was nothing more than a calculated "front" for some pretty fancy footwork by corporate backroom players. It was a strategic maneuver by European interests (the international bankers) who were intent upon gaining a stranglehold on the neck (and the coffers) of America.
The Congress realized our country was in dire financial straits, so they cut a deal with the international bankers — (in those days, the Rothschilds of London were dipping their fingers into everyone's pie) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers. If we think about banks, we know they do not just lend us money out of the goodness of their hearts. A bank will not do anything for you unless it is entirely in their best interest to do so. There has to be some sort of collateral or some string attached which puts you and me (the borrower) into a subservient position. This was true back in 1871 as well. The conniving international bankers were not about to lend our floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a brilliant way of getting their foot in the door of the United States (a prize they had coveted for some time, but had been unable to grasp thanks to our Founding Fathers, who despised them and held them in check), and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed.
In essence, this Act formed the corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. Note the capitalization, because it is important. This corporation, owned by foreign interests, moved right in and shoved the original "organic" version of the Constitution into a dusty corner. With the "Act of 1871," our Constitution was defaced in the sense that the title was block-capitalized and the word "for" was changed to the word "of" in the title. The original Constitution drafted by the Founding Fathers, was written in this manner:
"The Constitution for the united states of America".
The altered version reads: "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". It is the corporate constitution. It is NOT the same document you might think it is. The corporate constitution operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it is the same parchment that governs the Republic. It absolutely is not.
Capitalization — an insignificant change? Not when one is referring to the context of a legal document, it isn't. Such minor alterations have had major impacts on each subsequent generation born in this country. What the Congress did with the passage of the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia. The kind of government THEY created was a corporation. The new, altered Constitution serves as the constitution of the corporation, and not that of America. Think about that for a moment.

This has a been a rough week for this Conspiracy man. I got stranded with a vehicle break down and have been taxed very hard physically. That God gives me strength is testimony. In the tight confines of the morrow, I may be able to get some sort of show together. I put in a 20 hour day yesterday and this morning and have had very little sleep. However, there are serious issues upon us. Russia is being forced into an economic black hole. I pray they don't see conflict as an option. The markets have been in what may be termed a downward spiral. As pilots and submariners know, there is a point of no return. I pray we don't get past it. The Ebola is looking more and more as a psy-ops. However, if the global economy falters, I wouldn't doubt they'd consider culling he herd. ISIS is more and more shown to be a NATO secret army. There's rioting in Hamburg over it. They are many dead in the Turkish riots. The Kurds are the only effective military force really fighting and actually beating ISIS. The west is pretending to support them while trying to allow them to fail. It is a crucial time we face in the coming weeks and months. Our leaders have only one answer bombs and a police state apparatus to protect the actual culprits. If you take the time to watch Lion in the Desert, know these same mistakes were made so many years ago and Libya still is unsettled. The only winning move is to change the channel.

Nobody knows the beheading I've done
Nobody knows my handler
Nobody knows the fakery I've seen
Glory Holy War for Oil!
There have been headlines in the UK that the infamous ISIS 'terrorist' known as Jihadi John has been identified as British rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary. It's been getting very, very tense with Britain's top intelligence asset being EXPOSED in the public press while the machinations of the state intelligence apparatus have been powerless to identify or capture the so called 'terrorist.' I guess they're so busy reading people's private communications or downloading porn from the cloud that the front pages of Britain's dailies are not regarded. An internet sensation has also started blooming as the world points its collective finger at JOHN!
But I guess knowing the monster takes away the fear factor because he was just an impressionable young lad who has taken a shine to beheading and ISIS. Hiding in the Twitterverse posting pictures with severed heads and a bevy of assault weapons just isn't enough to get RED FLAGGED by the intelligence services anymore. They reserve national security laws for whistle blowers and bloggers for the non legislated but most horrific of criminality - the THOUGHTCRIME! Our Satanic leaders are loathe to the truth especially if it revels their dirty deeds like graft and corruption or even worse, creating the stretegy of tension with false flag terror. However, the cat is so far out of the bag that security services cannot keep up with the autograph requests and the stigma of a Raspberry Award for worst special effects in a beheading video.
RASPBERRY AWARD FOR WORST SPECIAL EFFECTS IN A BEHEADING VIDEO
It shouldn't come as a surprise really. John is the son of a 'terrorist' mastermind, Adel Abdel Bari, on trial in New York. The elder Bari was alleged to have been involved in the African embassy bombings another false flag event orchestrated as a part of the strategy of tension. Like HELL it was in the flippin' New York Times that a man warned the embassy every day for a full year until they kicked him out and he started warning the Brits. I guess they had their head phones on. If there is a failing in the intelligence cauldron, it is there is no one subscribing to the world's top papers or reading the work of great journalists. In fact the FBI's top counterterrorism expert, John P. O'Neill, actually reviewed embassy security and was sent packing by the Ambassador. He was ultimately framed over the handling of classified material and ushered out the door to die the hero's death going into the WTC as a master key holder and head of security. There are men that are legends. If he lived, the complicity of the event would not have been conspiracy theory.
We have to wonder what the criteria for determining a 'terrorist' is. Going to Syria to fight could go both ways. Abdel went to Syria and was captured by The Free Syria Army. For a prisoner he was able to tweet his message out. After torture he was released and joined ISIL in June of 2014. His tweets became more threatening. "The lions are coming for you soon you filthy kuffs (infidels). Beheadings in your own backyard soon." So we have a man who threatens to behead, posts pictures on line holding a severed head, threatens the President of the United States, and somehow associates openly with people in England with less trouble than an Ebola carrier. There can only be one explanation, and that is the rapper is an asset of British intelligence licensed to kill no doubt. That being said, the FBI knew of Jihadi John's identity as of September 25th. They still haven't released that information. There are privacy concerns respected even for 'terrorists.'
Well they always said, boys will be boys; and photographs aren't evidence unless they are officially approved by the government. They certainly aren't evidence if they reveal any government malfeasance. His friends and associates were scooped up in police anti terror raids recently. Tarik Hassane, Guzai Abuzeid, Rawan Kheder who is actually an Iraqi Kurd and an unidentified fourth and fifth suspect were taken into custody. One is even a medical student. Tarik is nicknamed 'The Surgeon.' The raids were yards away from the staged 21/7 terror plot. It defies the imagination. Tarik is a medical student at the University of Medical Sciences in Khartoum. The lads filmed videos for an A level media studies project.
This is Tarik Hassane, who tweeted this picture of his ID card from medical school in Sudan
So let's get this straight. The arrestees make films. One of them is a medical student. They have sympathies towards ISIS. They associate with a fellow who poses with severed heads and is active in the Middle East conflict. They live in the shadow of a previous 'terror' address. What are they? How could they be so blatant and not fallen under scrutiny by the intelligence services when they are on Page ONE of the British Dailies? There can only be two answers. The boys at MI5 only look at the Page THREE girls or they boys are assets of British intelligence commonly referred to as Al MI6da. I would suspect the latter. They were low budget fools recruited to manufacture propaganda ala MI7. This material would be used to enflame public opinion to provide cause for war against a fake enemy ISIS to wage actual war on Assad in Syria.
Hassane's arrest was a street away from where two of the 21/7 bombers were held in 2005. There is no suggestion of any link between the two
THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION GOVERNMENTS CAN'T EVEN FORM THE WORDS TO ASK
With this little gang cooling their heels in a British prison perhaps, we have noticed that the beheading schedule has fallen astray. They were timely and effective despite their incredulity. It's difficult to believe our leaders lined up to fall for such a poorly orchestrated stunt. I suspect the four lads as the Beatles were called may have been placed in protective custody lest a few men decided to take the law into their own hands which is where it should belong anyway. They could have reaped their own brand of justice from an angry mob. Dear Jihadi John your services are no longer required.

OCTOBER 06, 2014
The University of Al-Qaeda?
“Since 2003, Anglo-American power has secretly and openly coordinated direct and indirect support for Islamist terrorist groups linked to al-Qaeda across the Middle East and North Africa. This ill-conceived patchwork geostrategy is a legacy of the persistent influence of neoconservative ideology, motivated by longstanding but often contradictory ambitions to dominate regional oil resources, defend an expansionist Israel, and in pursuit of these, re-draw the map of the Middle East.”
–Nafeez Ahmed, “How the West Created the Islamic State“, CounterPunch
“The US created these terrorist organizations. America does not have the moral authority to lead a coalition against terrorism.”
– Hassan Nasralla, Secretary General of Hezbollah
The Obama administration’s determination to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is pushing the Middle East towards a regional war that could lead to a confrontation between the two nuclear-armed rivals, Russia and the United States.
Last week, Turkey joined the US-led coalition following a vote in parliament approving a measure to give the government the authority to launch military action against Isis in Syria. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made it clear that Turkish involvement would come at a price, and that price would be the removal of al Assad. According to Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News:
“Turkey will not allow coalition members to use its military bases or its territory in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) if the objective does not also include ousting the Bashar al-Assad regime, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan hinted on Oct. 1…
“We are open and ready for any cooperation in the fight against terrorism. However, it should be understood by everybody that Turkey is not a country in pursuit of temporary solutions, nor will Turkey allow others to take advantage of it,” Erdoğan said in his lengthy address to Parliament.”..
“Turkey cannot be content with the current situation and cannot be a by-stander and spectator in the face of such developments.” (“Turkey will fight terror but not for temporary solutions: Erdoğan“, Hurriyet)
Officials in the Obama administration applauded Turkey’s decision to join the makeshift coalition. U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel hailed the vote as a “very positive development” while State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, “We welcome the Turkish Parliament’s vote to authorize Turkish military action…We’ve had numerous high-level discussions with Turkish officials to discuss how to advance our cooperation in countering the threat posed by ISIL in Iraq and Syria.”
In the last week, “Turkish tanks and other military units have taken position on the Syrian border.” Did the Obama administration strike a deal with Turkey to spearhead an attack on Syria pushing south towards Damascus while a small army of so called “moderate” jihadis– who are presently on the Israeli border– move north towards the Capital? If that is the case, then the US would probably deploy some or all of its 15,000 troops currently stationed in Kuwait “including an entire armored brigade” to assist in the invasion or to provide backup if Turkish forces get bogged down. The timeline for such an invasion is uncertain, but it does appear that the decision to go to war has already been made.
Turkish involvement greatly increases the chances of a broader regional war. It’s unlikely that Syria’s allies, Russia and Iran, will remain on the sidelines while Turkish tanks stream across the country on their way to Damascus. And while the response from Tehran and Moscow may be measured at first, it is bound to escalate as the fighting intensifies and tempers flare. The struggle for Syria will be a long, hard slog that will probably produce no clear winner. If Damascus falls, the conflict will morph into a protracted guerilla war that could spill over borders engulfing both Lebanon and Jordan. Apparently, the Obama administration feels the potential rewards from such a reckless and homicidal gambit are worth the risks.
No-Fly Zone Fakery
The Obama administration has made little effort to conceal its real objectives in Syria. The fight against Isis is merely a pretext for regime change. The fact that Major General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Chuck Hagel are angling for a no-fly zone over Syria exposes the “war against Isis” as a fraud. Why does the US need a no-fly zone against a group of Sunni militants who have no air force? The idea is ridiculous. The obvious purpose of the no-fly zone is to put Assad on notice that the US is planning to take control of Syrian airspace on its way to toppling the regime. Clearly, Congress could have figured this out before rubber stamping Obama’s request for $500 million dollars to arm and train “moderate” militants. Instead, they decided to add more fuel to the fire. If Congress seriously believes that Assad is a threat to US national security and “must go”, then they should have the courage to vote for sending US troops to Syria to do the heavy lifting. The idea of funding shadowy terrorist groups that pretend to be moderate rebels is lunacy in the extreme. It merely compounds the problem and increases the prospects of another Iraq-type bloodbath. Is it any wonder why Congress’s public approval rating is stuck in single digits?
TURKEY: A Major Player
According to many sources, Turkey has played a pivotal role in the present crisis, perhaps more than Saudi Arabia or Qatar. Consider the comments made by Vice President Joe Biden in an exchange with students at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University last week. Biden was asked: “In retrospect do you believe the United States should have acted earlier in Syria, and if not why is now the right moment?” Here’s part of what he said:
“…my constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world…
So now what’s happening? All of a sudden everybody’s awakened because this outfit called ISIL which was Al Qaeda in Iraq, which when they were essentially thrown out of Iraq, found open space in territory in eastern Syria, work with Al Nusra who we declared a terrorist group early on and we could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them. So what happened? Now all of a sudden – I don’t want to be too facetious – but they had seen the Lord. Now we have – the President’s been able to put together a coalition of our Sunni neighbors, because America can’t once again go into a Muslim nation and be seen as the aggressor – it has to be led by Sunnis to go and attack a Sunni organization.”
Biden apologized for his remarks on Sunday, but he basically let the cat out of the bag. Actually, what he said wasn’t new at all, but it did lend credibility to what many of the critics have been saying since the very beginning, that Washington’s allies in the region have been arming and funding this terrorist Frankenstein from the onset without seriously weighing the risks involved. Here’s more background on Turkey’s role in the current troubles from author Nafeez Ahmed:
“With their command and control centre based in Istanbul, Turkey, military supplies from Saudi Arabia and Qatar in particular were transported by Turkish intelligence to the border for rebel acquisition. CIA operatives along with Israeli and Jordanian commandos were also training FSA rebels on the Jordanian-Syrian border with anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons. In addition, other reports show that British and French military were also involved in these secret training programmes. It appears that the same FSA rebels receiving this elite training went straight into ISIS – last month one ISIS commander, Abu Yusaf, said, “Many of the FSA people who the west has trained are actually joining us.” (“How the West Created the Islamic State“, Nafeez Ahmed, CounterPunch
(WILL FIGHT FOR FOOD CIA CONTRACT ARMY)
Notice how the author points out the involvement of “CIA operatives”. While Biden’s comments were an obvious attempt to absolve the administration from blame, it’s clear US Intel agencies knew what was going on and were at least tangentially involved. Here’s more from the same article:
“Classified assessments of the military assistance supplied by US allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar obtained by the New York Times showed that “most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups… are going to hardline Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”
Once again, classified documents prove that the US officialdom knew what was going on and simply looked the other way. All the while, the hardcore takfiri troublemakers were loading up on weapons and munitions preparing for their own crusade. Here’s a clip that Congress should have read before approving $500 million more for this fiasco:
” … Mother Jones found that the US government has “little oversight over whether US supplies are falling prey to corruption – or into the hands of extremists,” and relies “on too much good faith.” The US government keeps track of rebels receiving assistance purely through “handwritten receipts provided by rebel commanders in the field,” and the judgment of its allies. Countries supporting the rebels – the very same which have empowered al-Qaeda affiliated Islamists – “are doing audits of the delivery of lethal and nonlethal supplies.”…
the government’s vetting procedures to block Islamist extremists from receiving US weapons have never worked.” (“How the West Created the Islamic State”, Nafeez Ahmed, CounterPunch)
These few excerpts should help to connect the dots in what is really a very hard-to-grasp situation presently unfolding in Syria. Yes, the US is ultimately responsible for Isis because it knew what was going on and played a significant part in arming and training jihadi recruits. And, no, Isis does not take its orders directly from Washington (or Langley) although its actions have conveniently coincided with US strategic goals in the region. (Many readers will undoubtedly disagree with my views on this.) Here’s one last clip on Turkey from an article in the Telegraph. The story ran a full year ago in October 2013:
“Hundreds of al-Qaeda recruits are being kept in safe houses in southern Turkey, before being smuggled over the border to wage “jihad” in Syria, The Daily Telegraph has learned.
The network of hideouts is enabling a steady flow of foreign fighters – including Britons – to join the country’s civil war, according to some of the volunteers involved.
These foreign jihadists have now largely eclipsed the “moderate” wing of the rebel Free Syrian Army, which is supported by the West. Al-Qaeda’s ability to use Turkish territory will raise questions about the role the Nato member is playing in Syria’s civil war.
Turkey has backed the rebels from the beginning – and its government has been assumed to share the West’s concerns about al-Qaeda. But experts say there are growing fears over whether the Turkish authorities may have lost control of the movement of new al-Qaeda recruits – or may even be turning a blind eye.” (“Al-Qaeda recruits entering Syria from Turkey safehouses“, Telegraph)
Get the picture? This is a major region-shaping operation that the Turks, the Saudis, the Qataris, the Americans etc are in on. Sure, maybe some of the jihadis went off the reservation and started doing their own thing, but even that’s not certain. After all, Isis has already achieved many of Washington’s implicit objectives: Dump Nuri al Maliki and replace him with a US stooge who will amend the Status of Forces Agreement. (SOFA), allow Sunni militants and Kurds to create their own de facto mini-states within Iraq (thus, eliminating the threat of a strong, unified Iraq that will challenge Israeli hegemony), and create a tangible threat to regional security (Isis) thereby justifying US meddling and occupation for the foreseeable future. So far, arming terrorists has been a winning strategy for Obama and Co. Unfortunately for the president, we are still in the early rounds of the emerging crisis. Things could backfire quite badly, and probably will.
(NOTE: According to Iran’s Press TV: “The ISIL terrorists have purportedly opened a consulate in Ankara, Turkey and use it to issue visas for those who want to join the fight against the Syrian and Iraqi governments….The militants are said to be operating freely inside the country without much problem.” I have my doubts about this report which is why I have put parentheses around it, but it is interesting all the same.)
CAMP BUCCA: University of Al-Qaeda
So where do the Sunni extremists in Isis come from?
There are varying theories on this, the least likely of which is that they responded to promotional videos and propaganda on social media. The whole “Isis advertising campaign” nonsense strikes me as a clever disinformation ploy to conceal what’s really going on, which is, that the various western Intel agencies have been recruiting these jokers from other (former) hotspots like Afghanistan, Libya, Chechnya, Kosovo, Somalia and prisons in Iraq. Isis not a spontaneous amalgam of Caliphate-aspiring revolutionaries who spend their off-hours trolling the Internet, but a collection of ex Baathists and religious zealots who have been painstakingly gathered to perform the task at hand, which is to lob off heads, spread mayhem, and create the pretext for US-proxy war. Check out this illuminating article on Alakhbar English titled “The mysterious link between the US military prison Camp Bucca and ISIS leaders”. It helps explain what’s really been going on behind the scenes:
“We have to ask why the majority of the leaders of the Islamic State (IS), formerly the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), had all been incarcerated in the same prison at Camp Bucca, which was run by the US occupation forces near Omm Qasr in southeastern Iraq….. First of all, most IS leaders had passed through the former U.S. detention facility at Camp Bucca in Iraq. So who were the most prominent of these detainees?
The leader of IS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, tops the list. He was detained from 2004 until mid-2006. After he was released, he formed the Army of Sunnis, which later merged with the so-called Mujahideen Shura Council…
Another prominent IS leader today is Abu Ayman al-Iraqi, who was a former officer in the Iraqi army under Saddam Hussein. This man also “graduated” from Camp Bucca, and currently serves as a member on IS’ military council.
Another member of the military council who was in Bucca is Adnan Ismail Najm. … He was detained on January 2005 in Bucca, and was also a former officer in Saddam’s army. He was the head of a shura council in IS, before he was killed by the Iraqi army near Mosul on June 4, 2014.
Camp Bucca was also home to Haji Samir, aka Haji Bakr, whose real name is Samir Abed Hamad al-Obeidi al-Dulaimi. He was a colonel in the army of the former Iraqi regime. He was detained in Bucca, and after his release, he joined al-Qaeda. He was the top man in ISIS in Syria…
According to the testimonies of US officers who worked in the prison, the administration of Camp Bucca had taken measures including the segregation of prisoners on the basis of their ideology. This, according to experts, made it possible to recruit people directly and indirectly.
Former detainees had said in documented television interviews that Bucca…was akin to an “al-Qaeda school,” where senior extremist gave lessons on explosives and suicide attacks to younger prisoners. A former prisoner named Adel Jassem Mohammed said that one of the extremists remained in the prison for two weeks only, but even so was able to recruit 25 out of 34 inmates who were there. Mohammed also said that U.S. military officials did nothing to stop the extremists from mentoring the other detainees…
No doubt, we will one day discover that many more leaders in the group had been detained in Bucca as well, which seems to have been more of a “terrorist academy” than a prison.” (“The mysterious link between the US military prison Camp Bucca and ISIS leaders“, Alakhbar English)
US foreign policy is tailored to meet US strategic objectives, which in this case are regime change, installing a US puppet in Damascus, erasing the existing borders, establishing forward-operating bases across the country, opening up vital pipeline corridors between Qatar and the Mediterranean so the western energy giants can rake in bigger profits off gas sales to the EU market, and reducing Syria to a condition of “permanent colonial dependency.” (Chomsky)
Would the United States oversee what-amounts-to a “terrorist academy” if they thought their jihadi graduates would act in a way that served US interests?
Indeed, they would. In fact, they’d probably pat themselves on the back for coming up with such a clever idea.

There was a day, and there was a time when politicians were roasted by television comics before millions of people where many a truth could be spoken in jest. These were truths the news media might be loath to report until the pressure reached the boiling point. One of the last great versions was Saturday Night Live. The opening phrase, "It's Saturday Night" still rings in my ears. That humor told us the world was safe for democracy. There were checks and balances. The greatest balance was the court of public opinion.
In this era the major balance has shifted away. Now the politicians are guests of the late night comics. They get free PR exposure and little roasting unless they find the odd one outside of the political maelstrom of evil like Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford. I feel nauseous at the concept because the great equalizer of WE THE PEOPLE is no more. Corporate media assuage the corruption with diversions to the Land of Oz where illusion reigns supreme, but I remember.
This pair of Saturday Night Live comics were masters of the art. They were Jan Hooks and Philip Hartman. They parodied the Clinton's in a time of great scandal and malfeasance. It was all taken in good grace because Saturday Night Live had the support of so many good Americans. They were icons. However, they weren't untouchables. I'm sure in the dark recesses of the human mind the likes of which Alfred Hitchcock spoke there may very well have been machinations.
There is a list. It is called The Friends of Bill. The moral of the story is you don't mess with the Clinton's. The list is quite revealing including the popular, the powerful and those who just got in the way. It has lost some of its luster after the Bush years and the Obama fiasco. The list now even has a Hillary portion. Of course the most important was the murder of Ambassador to Libya John Christopher Stevens. In spite of Hillary's what difference does it make comment, I can assure you it makes all the difference. There is a level of ruthlessness in American politics that knows no bounds; and if that is the case, can we posit a case where Jan Hooks and Philip Hartman merit addition or at the very least circumspection.
Philip Hartman was allegedly murdered by his wife Brynn at about 3 a.m. on the morning of May 28, 1998. She is supposed to have shot him twice in the head and once in the side with a .38 caliber revolver after a heated argument about her drug use and Phil's threat to leave her. Brynn enlisted a friend to return to the scene of the crime after confessing. He called police at 6:20 a.m. They removed their two children from the home while Brynn locked herself in a room and committed suicide. It's all very plausible unless you're friends of Bill I guess. Then it's not unusual to just plane end up dead. There was no more Bill Clinton on Saturday Night Live.
Many years passed. A book was written on the case. Then recently Jan Hooks passed away at 57 with no public release of the cause of death. Well maybe they're afraid to say?Maybe it wasn't something to be proud of? Maybe it was even Arkanside as they used to call back in the 90's? But Hillary Clinton has appeared on Saturday Night Live with another cast member doing the duty. Jan Hooks is a distant memory. They played a song on that show. It was called Bullet in the Brain. My how things can both change and remain the same on Saturday Night. I would venture to bet that Philip was shot with a Saturday Night Special. In conspiracy lore the song would be a telltale sign that the perpetrator has taken the role on the stage from the victim and boasted about the execution of undue process to the sounds of music. The host was Charlize Theron of A Million Ways to Die in the West fame. You couldn't make it up.
Philip and Jan were both voice actors on The Simpsons home to 9/11 and Ebola predictive programming. They both may very well have not been appreciated by the Clinton's. They both deserve honorable mention on The Friends of Bill list I think. They were American icons and heroes to the cause of exposing corruption in the court of public opinion live on Saturday Nights. God bless them.

Episode shows Marge offering a sick Bart children's book 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'
The season nine episode shows Marge trying to coax a sick Bart to read a book called 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'
An apocalyptic drawing by Bart shows the sun crying above dead bodies and blood

The Simpsons has been at the cutting edge of popular culture for a quarter of a century - but do Springfield's most famous residents have the ability to predict the future?
According to Internet conspiracy theorists, the simple answer is yes.
They claim the world famous TV series predicted the Ebola crisis back in a 1997 episode in which Marge tries to coax a sick Bart out of bed, as proof.
She suggests he reads a book before producing one entitled 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'.
Conspiracy theorists have pointed to these clips in The Simpsons for its apparent ability to foresee the Ebola crisis which now threatens to become a pandemic as the US records its first victim.
According to Internet conspiracy theorists, a 1997 episode from season nine of the popular cartoon, features Marge trying to coax a sick Bart into reading 'Curious George and the Ebola Virus'
The book's cover shows a monkey lying in bed. The monket has long been suspected of being a carrier of the virus which has now made its way to America and claimed its first victim, Eric Thomas Duncan
Marge then asks if Bart would like 'to color something', to which he replies: 'I already did', and points to an apocalyptic drawing of a dead Bart surrounded by blood and bodies with the sun and clouds crying
Did The Simpsons predict Ebola outbreak back in 1997 ?
The clip appeared on a YouTube channel called the Controversy7 where the host discusses the Ebola virus among various other theories about the power of the Hollywood film industry.
The presenter of the site, Emmanuel Lokonga, wrote: 'Is there something we are not being told? Is it by pure chance & coincidence that the Simpsons would do predictive programming?'
The YouTube commentators were split on Mr Lokonga's theory. VSR wrote: 'US Government has had ebola vaccines for a couple of years now. Look it up.'
Sourjouneth Truth added: Thank you so very much for this video! Very good information. You have done an excellent job on this. Puppets on their strings, they think. NOT! Our Father has His Children's Backs. The rest of the story is being written and the fate of the evil is predetermined. Read Psalms 73.'
However some skepticism came from Jayden Morpeth, who commented: 'You realize the Ebola virus has been around for a long time it just hasn't be as serious as it is now.'
Despite the apparent chilling prediction from The Simpsons, Ebola was already well-known as a havoc-wreaking deadly virus in the late Nineties.
Ebola was discovered in 1976 following major outbreaks that year in the Sudan and Zaire. In the 1990s, the disease saw a resurgence with an outbreak in Gabon in 1994, followed by another in Zaire in 1995.
It could be said that other than the current Ebola crisis, the worst in recorded history, The Simpsons episode actually predicted the outbreak which occurred three years after the show aired.
Between 2000-2004, close to 500 people died from Ebola in Uganda, Gabon, the Republic of Congo and Sudan.
The current outbreak, which began last December, has so far killed more than 3,800 people, according to the latest World Health Organization figures.
The vast majority of those deaths have been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. On Wednesday a Liberian man, Eric Thomas Duncan, became the first Ebola victim to die on US soil. On Thursday a British man died from suspected Ebola in Macedonia.
The Simpsons episode called Lisa's Sax aired on October 19, 1997 - and appeared to hold a chilling prediction about the future
