Orban-Putin summit to test meaning of E.U. sanctions

Hungary’s Viktor Orban will host Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Budapest next month despite an E.U. decision to “not hold bilateral regular summits”.
The Hungarian foreign minister, Peter Szijjarto, announced the visit, to take place on 17 February, on Hungarian radio on Wednesday.
"We will have bilateral and geopolitical issues on the agenda, including the energy security of central Europe. Energy issues have become more urgent with the shelving of the South Stream pipeline”, he said.
Ukraine will be on the agenda too”, he added.

Ukraine conflict: U.S. accuses rebels of ‘land grab’

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has accused pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine of a "blatant land grab".
He was speaking after reports that the rebels had extended the area they control, violating a ceasefire plan.
Ukraine says Russia has more than 9,000 soldiers fighting alongside the rebels, a claim it denies.
Meanwhile, foreign ministers from Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany issued a joint call to end the fighting, following talks in Berlin.

Secret Justice: GOP Plans to ‘Return’ Torture Documents to CIA (for shredding)

Democracy can only survive if the public have access to the type of information which allow them to decide whether or not they live in a democracy, or a dictatorship. If the Press cannot get this information to the public, then who will do it?
It wasn’t enough that the CIA were caught hacking into the computers of Senator Diane Feinstein’s Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigative team- a crime which CIA head John Brennan was forced to ‘apologize’ for (with no punishment, of course). Now the new Republican (GOP) Senate will be asking that all federal agencies to return important torture documents to them.
Certain members of the US government seem to have dual allegiances, leaning more towards the Secret Security State, and away from the people. If public officials are actively working to pervert justice and due process by intentionally burying evidence, should their actions can be construed at least undemocratic, and at worst, as treasonous?
Richard Burr, North Carolina’s pro-torture Senator, appears to one such individual, now openly abusing the powers of his office to hide evidence from public view. Burr asserts that these secretive torture documents somehow ‘belong’ to the CIA, ignoring the fact they were paid for, and therefore, are the property of the American People. According to Burr, he did not feel it was a ‘valid disclosure’.

Head of IT Companies Monitoring Pentagon, FBI, NSA and Army Presumed Dead After Suspicious Fire

The Suspicious Death of Cyber Security Executive, #donpyle – – #ATF investigating the fire? pic.twitter.com/Q5qzYIP3i4
— AboveTopSecret (@AboveTopSecret) January 21, 2015

In the vein of all the suicided bankers, here’s another mysterious death connected to some pretty high places.
The 16,000 square-foot Annapolis mansion of millionaire IT executive Don Pyle, 55, went up in flames so fast on Monday, investigators believe a chemical agent must have been used. The house, dubbed ‘the castle’ by neighbors, was fully engulfed by the time the fire department got there. It took 85 firefighters to finally put the blaze out. Pyle, his wife and four grandchildren are currently presumed dead.
Some 20 agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been called in to investigate and foul play is suspected. Lots of people are questioning not only since when does the ATF get involved in private house fires and missing persons cases, but so many ATF agents on one case. A bit much?
Maybe not considering who Pyle was. Not only was he the COO of ScienceLogic, a company which regularly conducts business with the military and intelligences communities and which monitored the online networks for both the Department of Defense and the FBI (among others), but he was also CEO at Netcordia, another IT company which has contracted with both the National Security Agency and U. S. Army to manage their online networks. He had just taken the position at ScienceLogic in October.
In short, the guy definitely sat in some very high places…

A Billionaire Lectures Serfs in Davos – Claims ‘America’s Lifestyle Expectations are Far Too High’

If you listened closely this morning, you could hear humanity vomit as JP Morgan CEO, Jamie Dimon, began to speak at Davos. In what amounted to some of the most egotistical and delusional statements heard at a conference filled with egotistical and delusional participants, Mr. Dimon didn’t disappoint. Here are a couple highlights courtesy of Twitter:
*DIMON SAYS `YOU DON'T WANT A WEAK JPMORGAN' – or else

Jamie Dimon: Family first, country second, and JP Morgan- it's the best I can do for this world. @jpmorgan $JPM

Such shameless insincerity would even make his Best Banker Buddy (BBB) Barry Obama blush. I don’t know about you, but I’m eagerly awaiting Mr. Dimon’s 2028 Presidential run with Chelsea Clinton as running mate.
But I digress. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it has. Enter billionaire Jeff Greene, who’s comments at Davos make Sam Zell look enlightened.

It’s Official: President Obama’s SOTU Speeches Are The ‘Dumbest’ In US History

Are you smarter than a 9th grader? Then you will be quite at home with President Obama’s latest State of The Union speech. While the Flesch-Kincaid readability test shows SOTU ‘smartness’ has been plunging Woodrow Wilson, the collapse has accelerated post-Clinton with President Obama’s average SOTO speech tailored to the intellect of a 14-year-old – the lowest on record.

Noam Chomsky: Obama’s Drone Program ‘The Most Extreme Terrorist Campaign of Modern Times’

World-renowned linguist and scholar Noam Chomsky has criticized what he sees as Western hypocrisy following the recent terror attacks in Paris and the idea that there are two kinds of terrorism: ‘theirs versus ours.’
In an op-ed published Monday at CNN.com, Chomsky notes how the deadly attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a supermarket last week sparked millions to demonstrate under the banner ‘I am Charlie’ and prompted inquiries ‘into the roots of these shocking assaults in Islamic culture and exploring ways to counter the murderous wave of Islamic terrorism without sacrificing our values.’
No such inquiry into western culture and Christianity came from Anders Breivik’s 2011 attack in Norway that killed scores of people.
Nor did NATO’s 1999 missile strike on Serbian state television headquarters that killed 16 journalists spark ‘Je Suis Charlie’-like demonstrations. In fact, Chomsky writes, that attack was lauded by U. S. officials.

PTSD: A Nationwide Epidemic for Military Veterans?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is real, extremely debilitating, and is striking veterans at epidemic proportions, with some statistics reporting as many as 1 in 5 veterans being affected.
PTSD is not a diagnosis confined to those with a military service background, as Dr. White points out on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show. Sexual Assault, a car accident, a house-fire, or any other event which produces extreme stress can qualify you for this insidious malady. For this article and video, however, we focus the discussion on military veterans who suffer with PTSD, and specifically how veterans are being neglected by our government.

Russia Slams US/NATO Attempts To Draw It Into Military Conflict With Ukraine

NATO’s Jens Stoltenberg unleashed the latest tirade against Russia this morning proclaiming – though offering no proof – that there are Russian forces and heavy equipment in Ukraine and a high number of Russian forces on the border which “doesn’t contribute to a peaceful solution.” Apparently pre-empting this outburst, Pravda reports Anatoly Tsyganok, director of the Military Forecasting Centre, exclaims, “Ukraine reiterates that Russia is in the war, but it’s not true,” adding that in fact “the USA and the NATO have artificial satellites continuously circulating above this territory and control the situation,” concluding with a jab at The US & NATO that “Russia has never participated in the military conflict. And no attempt to involve Russia in the conflict will be crowned with success.”
Putin offered a peace plan but it was rejected…As Reuters reports,
Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko rejected a peace plan proposed to him last week by his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday evening, according to Russian media.
Peskov said the plan, contained in a letter sent by Putin on Thursday evening, proposed a ceasefire by both government forces and separatist militiamen in southeastern Ukraine, as well as the withdrawal of heavy artillery by both sides.
“In recent days, Russia has consistently undertaken efforts as an intermediary in regulating the conflict,” Peskov said in comments quoted by the ITAR TASS news agency.

The CDC called me yesterday – what they wanted to know may shock you

At 9:52 p.m. CST I received a call from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). It was a recorded message, a survey. They wanted to know how many people, including children resided in my household and how many of them were vaccinated.
I was dumbfounded by the call, caught off guard, as I was already sound asleep after a long day at work.
Although no children reside in my household, the call was terribly shocking to me as it has already been reported that parents of schoolchildren have been threatened with arrest for refusing vaccinations.
So this morning I decided to call the number back and see who was on the other end. A woman answered who was trying to gain more personal information from me to see if I was ‘eligible’.
I then explained to the woman that I was sleeping when I missed the call and asked if she could email me information on the survey.
The email which I received from the CDC Nation Immunization Survey reads as follows:
Thank you for your interest in the National Immunization Survey (NIS). As you requested, a letter that describes the purpose of this study and why we are calling your household can be found here: In summary, the NIS is used to call households across our nation screening for immunization data and other health care information regarding children. These data are used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to:

How British Spy Agency GCHQ Scooped-up US and UK Journalists’ Private Emails

21st Century Wire says…
Edward Snowden, the gift that just keeps on giving.
What’s even more shocking than watching our ‘world leaders’ marching arm and arm for their big photo-op in Paris two weeks ago, supposedly in solidarity of ‘press freedom’ (‘nous sommes tous des hypocrites!’), is learning that our governments are actively running surveillance and stealing emails of journalists. Mind you, and not just a few emails. We’re talking in bulk….
Both David Cameron and Robert Hannigan, head of Britain’sGCHQ, should have to answer the following question in public.: why does their GCHQ information security assessment list’investigative journalists’ as a threat, alongside ‘terrorists’ and hackers?
Are we dealing with a control-obsessed regime who views the press as a threat to their grip on power? Are those ‘British values’ or ‘western democratic values’, about which we’re so often lectured by the likes of Cameron, or William Hague?
Cameron’s UN speech back in October would have arguably sent chills down George Orwell’s spine, as he tosses and turns in his grave. The British leader made his position clear in front of the world, and it wasn’t on the side of free speech and expression. In an attempt to cover every last base of dissent, Cameron blamed ‘non-violent extremism’ for the existence of the terrorist group ISIS.
In the early 21st century, the state has already drifted way beyond the pale. So keen are politicians to look ‘tough on terror’, that they will sign over anything to the state’s mechanized departments. The obsession with security will eventually destroy and free society from within. As British author Peter Hitchens put it this week, ‘Now most legislators go weak at the knees like simpering teenage groupies whenever anyone from the ‘Security’ or ‘Intelligence’ services demands more power and more money.’

Hot War Continues in Ukraine

http://media.tfmetalsreport.com/audio/JBSFC1-20.mp3
Late last evening, Batchelor and Cohen continued their discussion of Ukraine Crisis. With hot war raging across the Donbass, it is extremely important that you stay on top of this situation.
There’s a lot of helpful information in this podcast. Among the topics covered:
Why is hot war restarting now? Is it to keep the sanctions in place? The symbolic importance of the Donetsk airport. Putin’s intentions and how Ukraine Crisis has prompted Russia to turn to “the east”. Russia’s current economic state and the choices they face in managing the crisis. Are the sanctions driving greater Europe away from the U. S.? The significance to Russians of the WWII anniversaries that are coming up this spring. Please be sure to give this a thorough listen and be certain to stay on top of the headlines. This situation is seeming to worsen by the day.

‘D’ Weapons Use Appliances to Spy on Homes, Internet as Cyber Battleground: ‘World War III is a Guerrilla Information War’

Though it has remained officially unsaid, the powers that be have all-but-officially designated the American people as their enemy in a foggy battleground that has become global, nebulous, highly technological and extremely paranoid.
Homeland Security and FBI protocol have set the stage for profiling Americans as potential threats, while the rising police state have often cracked down with a heavy hand and perhaps a SWAT raid. The War on Terror, global jihad, cyber attacks and a new Cold War have all contributed the necessary pretexts for an atmosphere of control and preemptive suspicion that seemingly justifies total surveillance of the population.
USCYBERCOM, activated by the federal government in 2009 and operated by the director of the NSA, adds a whole new dimension to that, by bringing home – to computer screens and devices everywhere – the cyberwar.
And since that time, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange became the first civilian designated, according to declassified information, as a military-designated ‘enemy of the state.’ Many SWAT raids, FBI and police visits have now resulted from alleged threatening or offensive Internet activity. Likewise, StuxNet became the first major cyber attack against Iran, a (perceived) military threat. More recently, we’ve seen major cyber warfare exchanges with North Korea, resulting in an Internet blackout there following the SONY hacking scandal and diplomatic standoff over a Hollywood film.
As Daniel Taylor, of Old Thinker News, points out, the militarization and weaponization of the digital space has been a long time coming, and it might mutate into a conflict wide enough to involve you and your online activities.

How the UN Is Confiscating American Homes and Controlling All Food and Energy

In times of crises, the government has proven, time and time again, that it cannot be counted on to adequately protect the American people. As the American people have not prepared for the coming dark days, they will be vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, cholera, pandemics and attacks from resource-deficient looters. Will the government be there to save them? History has already answered this question in the negative. Events such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, L. A. riots and the Ferguson riots have repeatedly demonstrated that when trouble comes, the American people will be on their own.
When disaster strikes, it will take less than 24 hours until grocery stores are empty, the utilities are down and neighbors begin to prey upon neighbors.
Obama Criminalizes Independence Certainly, no government can be all things to all people. Subsequently, the government should be in the business of encouraging its citizens to be independent. However, the Obama administration has taken the opposite approach. Instead of the government empowering the people to be self-sufficient, this administration is punishing independence and self sufficiency.
DHS actually published a ‘Right Wing Extremism Manual which demonizes and targets normal citizens with labels such as ‘preppers’ and have further defined the act of becoming self-sufficient as being the actions of a domestic terrorist. It is ironic that DHS is the one who has ordered millions of FEMA caskets, 2700 armored personnel carriers and 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition. Yet, it is only the wholly independent people, only desiring to be left alone by their government, are labeled as domestic terrorists.
America Is Witnessing the Manifestation of Agenda 21 Any aware person knows that Agenda 21 is predicated on eliminating private property ownership and keeping all people within the ‘system’. Drinking raw milk, engaging in off the grid living and heating your home with a wood stove is forbidden. All of these prohibitions and more are presently encircling America as the Agenda 21 noose is tightening around collective necks.
