As a result, Europe stands on the brink of frightful internal upheaval. In the coming years, it has every chance of suffering the same fate as the Ukraine, only with a great roar, great bloodshed and less chance that in the near future things will settle down – in other words, that someone will show up and put things in order.
In fact, today the EU can choose whether to remain a tool of the United States or to move closer to Russia. Depending on its choice, Europe can get off with a slight scare, such as a breakup of parts of its periphery and possible fragmentation of some countries, or it could collapse completely. Judging by the European elites’ reluctance to break openly with the United States, collapse is almost inevitable.
What should interest us is the opinions of the two main players that determine the configuration of the geopolitical front and in fact are fighting for victory in the new generation of war – the network-centric Third World War. These players are the United States and Russia.April 22, 2015 at 5:38 pm #20681

Beatriz Paez says she was doing nothing wrong taking video of U.S. Marshal executing warrants on San Juan Avenue Sunday. She saw people in handcuffs. “Around 8 people including women were held at gunpoint on their stomachs with their hands held behind their back,” says Paez.
But, when one marshal saw her recording, “He told me that I had to go. And, I told him I had the right to film and he said I was interfering with their investigation and I told them that I was on a public sidewalk and I had the right to film them.”
As The Washington Post notes,
…the courts have consistently held that the First Amendment protects citizens’ right to record the police when they’re on the job. The police can’t stop you unless you’re interfering with their work — and they can’t take away your smart phone or delete the recordings just because you took video.
Police need a warrant to mess with the content of your cell phone.April 22, 2015 at 6:20 pm #20685
The Religion of Scientism at its finest !
In 1959, Dr Denys Tucker was at the height of his powers. A wartime pilot turned eminent zoologist, he was the Natural History Museum’s chief scientist and a world authority on eels. Then he publicly declared that he had found the Loch Ness Monster.
Within a year, Dr Tucker had been sacked from his job at the museum and found himself at the beginning of a legal battle to try to regain his post which pitted him against, among others, the Archbishop of Canterbury. He was aged 39 and he never gained an academic post again.April 22, 2015 at 6:41 pm #20687
Members of a paedophile network which preyed on very young children, including a baby, have been found guilty of plotting the abuse.
Sex offenders John Denham, 49, and Matthew Stansfield, 34, were convicted of conspiring to rape a child after a trial at Bristol Crown Court.
Those involved in the same UK-wide sex ring travelled long distances to carry out attacks together, the court heard.
Five other members had earlier admitted a string of related offences.
The group used the internet to plan and stream abuse and tried to groom pregnant women in order to find new victims, the trial heard.
Three men from Somerset, Manchester and Bedfordshire admitted carrying out the rape and sexual assault of children.
Two more men pleaded guilty to arranging the abuse.April 22, 2015 at 7:18 pm #20688
Police believe there were other victims, and have put measures in place to protect another 21 children found to be at risk.
Despite the men’s efforts to destroy evidence, police were able to retrieve webchats where the gang discussed their plans, with comments such as “I’m really in to v.v. young”, and “sicker the better”.
Material which could lead to the arrest of other paedophiles has been sent on to police forces on five continents.
Prosecutor Robert Davies told the jury in the Denham and Stansfield trial: “This prosecution will take you into a world you wished did not exist.
“The evidence exposes the shocking interest a group of men had in sexually abusing babies, toddlers or pre-school children.
“A real baby was for certain abused and raped by some of those involved.”
Earlier in the trial, Denham told the court he had become “desensitised” after watching a young teenage girl performing a sex act on a man, and the age range “dropped lower and lower”.
He said he was “ashamed” of deriving sexual gratification from child pornography and now understood there were “real victims”.
The NSPCC has described the case as “vile” and is running a helpline for anyone worried their child may have been a victim.
“These men shared their abhorrent fantasies and honed in on very young children for sickening abuse, on easily accessible sections of the internet,” a spokesman said.
“They even callously targeted pregnant women.
“It shows that there is still a long way to go for technology companies and social media networks who work with police to identify and prevent these crimes.”April 22, 2015 at 7:26 pm #20689
Um, it’s just that some people are very slow learners…
There was a time when I regarded the idea of an ‘Establishment cover-up’ with a pinch of salt. Was it really plausible that the powers-that-be should act in concert over a prolonged period of time to suppress the truth?
Even if they attempted to do so, surely some decent person would sooner or later speak out, or inform the Press. It seemed unlikely that evil on a vast scale could be concealed more or less indefinitely in what is supposed to be a free and open society.
I’m afraid a succession of sex abuse cases have blown apart my preconceptions. It’s plain beyond any dispute that politicians, senior policemen and members of the security services have conspired to protect abusers because they were considered important, and to deny their victims justice.
First there was the almost inconceivable abuse carried out over a period of 50 years by the loathsome Jimmy Savile, notwithstanding several police investigations. Then there were the no less grotesque sexual assaults committed by the gargantuan Liberal MP Cyril Smith with the apparent indulgence of the authorities.
And now there is the equally disturbing case of Greville Janner — Lord Janner — a former Labour MP and one-time President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, who has campaigned tirelessly, and most creditably, on behalf of Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

While “natural causes” are blamed in most of these cases, it seems to us that there is a very real possibility that most (or all) of these fatalities were the result of hydrocarbon poisoning and thus could have been entirely avoidable. Of course the likely reason why the proper solutions have not been implemented is that fixing the problem would cost money. Here’s WSJ again:
Some industry experts say the industry knew the plumes could unleash potentially dangerous vapors and should have been monitoring the chemical levels all along. And, they say, companies could implement safety fixes that would reduce or remove hazards. One option is to use automated or remote methods to read tank levels. That is done regularly elsewhere, including in Canada.
“There’s no question in my mind it was absolutely known” that there were dangerously noxious fumes coming from the tanks, said Dennis Schmitz, a safety consultant for oil companies in North Dakota. “You are absolutely required to evaluate that hazard before you put that employee up there.”
“Every hazard should be engineered out,” added Mr. Schmitz, who acknowledged that fixes would add some cost.
We’ll leave you with the following quote from Dr. William Massello, a North Dakota state forensic examiner, and a forensic pathologist — these are some of the things that can happen should you inhale toxic hydrocarbon vapors right before you coincidentally die of “natural causes”:April 23, 2015 at 2:28 am #20691
A “Pindown” Child Abuse Survivor Writes
I went through the secret family court system – I am one of the Staffordshire Pindown child abuse survivors. The Staffordshire Freemasons have been persecuting all of us Pindown survivors presumably to avoid coughing up any compensation money for wrecking our lives by taking us on Place of Safety orders and then placing us with paedophiles in lock up homes.
So they use the secret family courts to smash people up even further, steal THEIR children, using syndromes invented by paedophile psychologists Richard Gardner, Ralph Underwager and John Money, to falsely accuse them of child abuse, or even more sinister, potential child abuse (they use that one for first time mothers, MSBP), steal their kids and give them to any Tom, Dick or Harry.
The treatment I received at Stafford, Wolverhampton and Walsall secret family courts I can really only describe as psychological torture. At one point, they kept me against my will. I was screaming at the top of my voice for 20 to 30 minutes. There were witnesses from Penkridge Victim Support – Pat Burns and a young female trainee – begging and screaming to be let out. The man who had raped me was directly outside the door. The two lawyers who kept me against my will in that room for 2 hours were trying to force me to sign documents against my will – their names were Lisa Haughton and Jane Buckley. They were MY legal team, supposedly, but in the secret family court system the whole network is so riddled with corruption that you end up with everyone ganging up against you. The man who raped me, David Haswell, was a deputy mayor at one time in Stone. He is a friend of Harry Brunt, a local councillor in Stone, and at one time he was a member of the Labour Party and stood for election. I suppose that is another reason why I was persecuted, plus the fact that David Haswell’s father, Joe Haswell from Chester-le-Street, was a Freemason, and all these corrupt brothers stick together like manure on a shovel.

Pindown was a method of punishment used in children’s homes in Staffordshire, and some other counties of the UK in the 1980s. It involved locking children in rooms called “pindown rooms”, sometimes for periods of weeks or months, similar to a lockdown inprisons. The children were kept in solitary confinement with little furniture, no conversation and repetitive occupations.April 23, 2015 at 2:36 am #20693
Uncovering The Past Abuse of Children in Care
During the 1990s and into the 21st century, the problem of the widespread abuse of children in care has been increasingly recognised. There were many investigations and reports into such abuse in the UK. The same occurred in a number of other countries (such as Ireland, Canada and Australia).
This section of our website is dedicated to highlighting this problem. Although it focuses on what we know about abuse in the past, we also know that abuse continues to occur. Cases are regularly reported in newspapers and on radio and television. We want to make sure that governments and professionals deal with this problem properly. We also want to support those courageous care leavers and professionals who seek to expose such abuse.
We disagree with those who have claimed that the investigations and court cases of the past 15 years have been a witch-hunt and have exaggerated the problem. On the contrary, our members know that much of the abuse that went on in the past was never uncovered and has never been dealt with. Many of us have directly experienced or witnessed physical or sexual abuse that was never brought to light.
Throughout history, the possibility of abuse (whether physical or sexual) within the child care system has often been ignored. For example, outbreaks of venereal diseases in children’s homes in the early part of the twentieth century were usually explained away as the result of ‘innocent’ transmission through shared towels, toilet seats, etc. (see Carol Smart’s article).
It was only in the 1980s and 1990s that we saw wide acceptance of the existence of such abuse. As the Police Complaints Authority investigation into the Leicestershire child abuse cases noted: “…even today it is beyond the comprehension of most people that a parent might physically or sexually abuse a child. It is even more unthinkable that this could happen to children under professional care”.April 23, 2015 at 7:31 am #20720
When Ukrainian warlords need a well-earned rest from fighting the civil war, there’s always Cleveland, under State Department protection, or Miami for the warm weather.
Igor Kolomoisky has accumulated more than a quarter of a billion dollars in US investments through a chain of front companies which stretch from several American states to Miami, Florida, to Cyprus, and to the Caribbean. He has also managed to keep his name out of the public record of the American transactions. But the money trail in some of his deals, and at least one of his partners, have come under scrutiny by US and state government agencies, and federal courts in several US states.
Kolomoisky himself, according to a Kiev source and a federal US court filing in December 2012, “has traveled to the United States over the past few years and should have no trouble obtaining a visa.” Kolomoisky has been in the US in recent days, reportedly on a restricted visa, in order to discuss his future and the future of his American assets with US Government officials. Public records reveal that the value of these assets has been falling sharply, and that some may be sold in debt default auctions unless Kolomoisky can persuade state and federal government agencies to provide subsidies, concessional utility rates, tax and other credits.
Sources in Cleveland, Ohio, where Kolomoisky has control over several downtown buildings and a hotel, report that his assets there have lost market value since he acquired them. “Out of state investors think they will make a ton of money,” one of the sources said. “they don’t. I don’t think [Kolomoisky] made any money [in Cleveland].”
Kolomoisky’s legal right to enter the US is controversial. It has been reported in Ukraine and Russia that he was the target of an investigation by the US Department of Justice, when Edwin Mukasey was Attorney-General, between November 2009 and January 2011; and that Kolomoisky was barred from US entry. For more, click. At the Dniepropetrovsk headquarters of Komolomoisky’s Privatbank, his spokesman refused today to confirm or deny Kolomoisky’s presence in the US. He also refused to clarify whether Kolomoisky has been denied entry to the US at any time since 2009.April 23, 2015 at 2:55 pm #20721
Russia’s Foreign Ministry thanked television channel RT for help in evacuating Americans trapped in Yemen by reporting on the issue.
Thanks to RT, the Russian Embassy in Yemen found out about the plight of Americans trapped in Yemen and helped them evacuate.
“We would like to sincerely thank television channel RT for active technical cooperation and follow-through in this move,” Russian Foreign Ministry representative Alexander Lukashevich said.
The US government had no plans to evacuate its citizens from Yemen despite bombardments and fighting in the country. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on Wednesday that Americans stuck in Yemen should go to other embassies to evacuate.April 23, 2015 at 3:29 pm #20722April 23, 2015 at 3:45 pm #20723
