Is ISIS Using Alibaba To Buy Mobile Refineries From Turkey?

It all started with a Pentagon tweet showing a before and after picture of a “modular oil refinery” used by ISIS:

By “modular” the Department of Defense meant “mobile.” CNN had more:
U. S. and coalition warplanes pounded ISIS positions in eastern Syria on Wednesday, targeting what a Pentagon official described as mobile oil refineries being used by the so-called Islamic State terror group to help finance its operations.
The latest round of airstrikes were aimed at cutting off money flowing to ISIS, which makes up to $2 million a day from oil produced by the mobile refineries, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon spokesman, told CNN.

A new armed group in Algeria calling itself the “Caliphate Soldiers” – a re-splinter from Al-Qaeda splinter group ISIS – has, according to AP, beheaded a Frenchman abducted in Algeria in a video posted online on Wednesday, after giving a 24-hour deadline to Paris. Herve Gourdel, a 55-year-old hiker from the southern French city of Nice, was kidnapped on Sunday by Jund al-Khilifa, which demanded France stop its air strikes against IS in Iraq.

ISIS Slams “Mule Of The Jews” Obama, Demands Killing Of “Disbelievers” Especially “Filthy French”

Having released some 46 Turkish hostages, because “Turkey refused to agree to the US demand for ‘active support of the coalition‘,” ISIS has come out swinging in its first ‘official’ statement since President Obama unveiled his ‘strategy’ for “degrading and destroying” them, with a call for all followers of Allah to make the coalition campaign the “last crusader campaign,” and calls Obama “vile”, more foolish than Bush, and a “mule of the Jews.” Warning Americans and Europeans that “you will pay a great price, when your economies collapse,” ISIS blasts Kerry, “the uncircumcised old geezer,” for his “false arguments.” The statement concludes by telling ISIS followers, “if you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.”
As Al-Monitor reports, Forty-nine staff members of the Turkish Consulate in Mosul (three of whom are Iraqi nationals) who were taken hostage June 11 by the Islamic State (IS) were freed at 6:30 a.m. Sept. 20. Details of the operation are slowly emerging.
Interesting reports surfaced on the Takvahaber news website, which is identified as the IS mouthpiece in Turkey. According to one Takvahaber report, which was based on the Twitter account of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the IS caliph, the decision to release the hostages was personally approved by Baghdadi after Turkey refused to agree to the US demand for ‘active support of the coalition.’ …
In addition to the key question of whether the hostages were rescued through an operation or handed over by IS to Turkish officials, another question that gained prominence is, ‘Why now?’ Why did IS give up the strategic ace it was holding against Turkey just now that the United States is setting up a coalition and is about to launch a military offensive?
And then ISIS issues its first post-Obama Strategy statement…

#DECLASSIFY: CAMPAIGN TO REVEAL THE 28 CENSORED PAGES OF THE 9/11 COMMISSION REPORT

Censored information implicates Saudi Arabia in 9/11 attacks
Even as Americans marked the 13th anniversary of 9/11 last week, the vast majority remain completely oblivious to the fact that the full story behind the attacks has not been told, with 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission report still remaining classified.
In an effort to lift the lid on the information contained in the censored pages, which almost certainly implicates Saudi Arabia in the September 11 attacks, Congressman Ron Paul has called on Americans to get behind a campaign to draw attention to U. S. Rep. Walter Jones’ House Resolution 428, which demands that the President order the 28 pages declassified in full.
Paul is urging supporters to upload videos to YouTube explaining why the 28 pages should be declassified, in addition to launching the campaign on Twitter under the hashtag #Declassify. Infowars is also throwing its support behind this cause under the hashtag #releasethe28pages.
In an interview with Ron Paul, Congressman Jones gave an insight into the kind of secrecy that surrounds the 28 pages and the security precautions that are taken when lawmakers, who are required to swear on oath not to release details, request to see the information.
‘You have to go down into a room that is guarded by uniformed officers, and then also you have an FBI person to sit there in the room,’ said Jones. ‘You can’t make any notes. The Bush people do not want it released. It’s not a national security issue. But it would be embarrassing to the previous administration if this information is opened for the public…. There will be no hope for America’s future if the American people don’t know the truth about a tragedy such as 9/11.’

ISIS’ Next Target: The Suez Canal

Following ISIS blitzkrieg in which it took over nearly half of Iraq and a third of Syria in the blink of an eye, at which point it created its own Islamic State Caliphate resulting in Obama’s own personal war against the jihadists, some have wondered what is ISIS’ next step: surely its leadership will not merely stagnatte as one after another US predator drone bomb away the capital Reqqa until ISIS figurehead leader al-Baghdadi is killed or gravely wounded. To be sure, the one thing ISIS, which stunned the world with the speed of its ascent, can not afford is to stand still.
So what is next on the strategic timeline for the Islamic State?
According to one source, Al Arabiya, which cites Egyptian experts, the answer is none other than the Suez Canal, and the country it is located in: Egypt.
‘There is definitely a threat from ISIS to Egypt,’ Mohammed Badr, a professor of political science at the University of Germany told Al Arabiya News, adding that the group has the country in its ‘line of sight.’
‘All extremist groups represent a danger for Egypt,’ Badr said, adding that ‘ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis [an Islamist militant group] are all dangerous for Egypt but the level of their threat is different.’
More details from Al-Arabiya:
One alleged ISIS militant took to social media to warn Egypt that it should be expecting a ‘surprise’ soon. ‘Except a surprise in Egypt within days,’ alleged ISIS member Abu Siyaf al-Masry wrote on his personal Twitter account, according to the Cairo-based daily al-Masry al-Youm.

Grievance Nation Meets Possible Felony Wire Fraud

As they say, heh heh heh….
Two independent journalists have confirmed with the San Francisco Police Department that Anita Sarkeesian, a video game social justice warrior, may have used false pretenses to raise money for her non-profit entity. The police have said that she has not contacted them as she claimed after receiving a Twitter death threat in August. Under Federal law, this may put her on the hook for felony wire fraud.
Wait, what?
Video game social justice warriors?
Yes, they apparently exist. You know, people who argue that it’s so damned unfair that {women|minorities|gays|whoever} are {underrepresented|victims of misogyny|harassed} in {whatever} – in this case, video games.
Really.

Moms of autistic, vaccine-damaged children mount wave of online protest against CDC research fraud

(NaturalNews) A groundswell of backlash against government corruption has been unleashed across the web following the revelation that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lied about data linking vaccines and vaccine ingredients to autism. The hashtags “#CDCwhistleblower” and “#hearthiswell,” a reference to a global campaign aimed at “breaking the science on vaccine violence,” are bursting forth across Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, drawing attention to the U. S. government’s evil vaccine war against the most vulnerable members of society, our children. Moms everywhere are posting videos on YouTube bearing these hashtags, in which they talk about their own children who were damaged by vaccines, warning others to be cautious before injecting their babies without researching the matter on their own. One mother of eight children, for instance, talks about how, among the six that were vaccinated, three have autism, and the others have a variety of mood and behavioral disorders, as well as gastrointestinal and other physical health problems.

Social Media and the ‘Spiral of Silence’

Summary of Findings A major insight into human behavior from pre-internet era studies of communication is the tendency of people not to speak up about policy issues in public – or among their family, friends, and work colleagues – when they believe their own point of view is not widely shared. This tendency is called the ‘spiral of silence.’1 Some social media creators and supporters have hoped that social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter might produce different enough discussion venues that those with minority views might feel freer to express their opinions, thus broadening public discourse and adding new perspectives to everydaydiscussion of political issues.
We set out to study this by conducting a survey of 1,801 adults. Americans were divided over whether the NSA contractor’s leaks about surveillance were justified and whether the surveillance policy itself was a good or bad idea. For instance, Pew Research found in one survey that 44% say the release of classified information harms the public interest while 49% said it serves the public interest.
The survey reported in this report sought people’s opinions about the Snowden leaks, their willingness to talk about the revelations in various in-person and online settings, and their perceptions of the views of those around them in a variety of online and off-line contexts.
This survey’s findings produced several major insights:

Judging by these photos taken moments ago above the Islamic State (i.e. ISIS) capital of Raqqa, a triggerhappy remote-control operator in Whiteman Air Force Base is about to get jiggy with some jihadists located nearly 7000 miles away.
Needless to say, if readers spot one of these flying casually in the skies overhead, running fast may be a good strategy…

“World Is Losing Battle To Contain Ebola Epidemic,” MSF Warns Response “Lethally Inadequate”

The CDC’s worst nightmare is coming true. Despite reassurances from the government that it was ‘contained’, the Ebola outbreak in Nigeria is accelerating fast. Health Minister Chukwu said that 17 had now been infected and 271 were under surveillance (including most horrifyingly, 72 in Lagos). In addition, Congo is seeing cases increase rapidly, with WHO reporting 53 cases of Ebola (31 dead) and warning, perhaps ominously, that there is no link with the West Africa strain. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said the situation in her country “remains grave,” adding “People now don’t see this as a Liberia or West Africa crisis. It could easily become a global crisis.” Furthermore, Doctors-without-Borders warns,“the world is losing the battle to contain the Ebola epidemic.”

“Pakistan Spring” Escalates; 3 Dead, Over 470 Injured As “Soft Coup” Hardens

The violent protests that raged yesterday have turned deadly as clashes between riot police and anti-government protesters left 3 dead and at least 470 injured according to The WSJ. The military, who are acting as mediators between PM Sharif and opposition leader Imran Khan have warned both sides that they neither support the others view or sanction further use of violence to suppress crowds. Mr. Khan exclaimed to the people, “if you want to be free, if you want to have a real democracy, the time has come;” as another protester noted “the police were brutal, but that is good because whenever blood is shed in a movement, it turns into a revolution.” Meanwhile, the so-called “soft-coup” as WaPo refers to it continues to harden (threatening $3bn of US aid) as Prime Minister Sharif is left with fewer and fewer options.

ISIS Is Internet Savvy.

A Los Angeles Times story reports on how well organized ISIS is with respect to the Internet. It gets it story to its target audiences.
Today, media-savvy militants in Iraq and Syria post graphic photos and slick recruitment videos on Facebook and Twitter, and even developed a now-defunct Android smartphone app that would automatically tweet from users’ accounts. Fighters in the field answer questions from supporters on websites and chat rooms that allow users to remain anonymous.
‘Back in the old days, jihadists would be depicted in recruiting photos with a rifle or a bomb,’ said Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, a nonprofit group based in Washington. ‘Now the laptop and hand-held device are just as important.’

The U.S. Government Can Brand You a Terrorist Based on a Facebook Post

The US government’s web of surveillance is vast and interconnected. Now we know just how opaque, inefficient and discriminatory it can be.
As we were reminded again just this week, you can be pulled into the National Security Agency’s database quietly and quickly, and the consequences can be long and enduring. Through ICREACH, a Google-style search engine created for the intelligence community, the NSA provides data on private communications to 23 government agencies. More than 1,000 analysts had access to that information.
This kind of data sharing, however, isn’t limited to the latest from Edward Snowden’s NSA files. It was confirmed earlier this month that the FBI shares its master watchlist, the Terrorist Screening Database, with at least 22 foreign governments, countless federal agencies, state and local law enforcement, plus private contractors.
The watchlist tracks ‘known’ and ‘suspected’ terrorists and includes both foreigners and Americans. It’s also based on loose standards and secret evidence, which ensnares innocent people. Indeed, the standards are so low that the US government’s guidelines specifically allow for a single, uncorroborated source of information – including a Facebook or Twitter post – to serve as the basis for placing you on its master watchlist.
Of the 680,000 individuals on that FBI master list, roughly 40% have ‘no recognized terrorist group affiliation’, according to the Intercept. These individuals don’t even have a connection – as the government loosely defines it – to a designated terrorist group, but they are still branded as suspected terrorists…

ISIS dot com: Social Media Barons Are Pushing the New Barbarity

Something stinks in the upper echelon of the mega media barons.
Isn’t it interesting how Facebook bots will censor certain political posts, or how your page can be pulled down for a remark someone behind the communitarian curtain claims is ‘offensive’, while jihadist and ISIS terror gangs are allowed to openly use the same social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook for recruitment, ‘martyr selfies’, marketing, T-Shirt sales, and to post murder photos?
If only the problem ended there. Something much deeper, and much more insidious is going on behind the doors of Silicon Valley, Hollywood and CIA meeting rooms, or maybe not – they tell us this is simply progress. New and dark cultural features are being unleashed into the minds of the public via the War on Terror, and it’s all for profit…

Marketing Push: ‘Terrorism is Cool’
Writing for Stratfor, August 28, Robert D. Kaplan said that ‘Terrorism is Theatre’, but of course only for the mentally sick, including the Internet barons who directly profit from Death Pornography.
Kaplan claims that by choosing decapitation as the method for killing US journalist James Foley, the degenerate psychopaths of ISIS were ‘right on the Internet social network button’, in some sort of macabre tribute to the ISIS marketing department.

CNN asks serial lying liar to comment on the CDC whistleblower scandal!

You want a perfect example of how mainstream media covers up the truth and endangers lives? Here it is.
Yesterday, CNN published an article about CDC whistleblower William Thompson.
(CNN: ‘Journal questions validity of autism and vaccine study’ – the CNN reporter for this story is Debra Goldschmidt (twitter: @debgcnn). Jacque Wilson and Miriam Falco also contributed to this story. The story is augmented with a video featuring CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen (twitter: @elizcohencnn). The Spanish language version of the story is here.)
The day before yesterday, Thompson confessed that he and other CDC coauthors fabricated a 2004 CDC study, in order to hide an MMR-vaccine connection to autism.
Those other co-authors included Dr. Frank DeStefano. DeStefano was the lead author of the 2004 study.
So naturally… CNN goes to DeStefano for a quote defending the safety of vaccines, and De Stefano, the accused liar, tells another lie without blushing, without missing a beat.
He says:
‘We know the brain and cellular features for children begin when the child is still in the womb. The brain is already developing the wiring that will manifest in autism.’
In other words, according to DeStefano, vaccines couldn’t cause autism, because it’s already forming before the child has ever had a vaccine.
If that were true, why bother to do thousands of studies that allege there is no vaccine-autism connection?

While the ‘one’ continues to golf, the world moves forward in a perilous fashion. Reports are coming from the Ukrainian government and numerous reliable sources via Twitter and domestic news services that Russian troops have indeed crossed the frontier in Southeastern Ukraine and are well on their way to sealing the escape routes via the Sea of Azov creating panic in Kiev as the Ukrainian military appears to be disintegrating in the Donbas and facing possible annihilation in retaliation for the actions of the mercenary forces recruited by the Poroshenko government.
