Logically speaking, terrorists from all over the world should be allowed to use weapons of mass destruction, or weapons aimed at civilians, because they also need the money. The next time you cry about terrorist events in the UK or USA do remind yourselves of the untold victims from these countries that used weapons aimed at civilians. Vile hypocrites.
“They have sold cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia…”
(MEE) British government analysis has indicated that British-made cluster bombs have been used by Saudi Arabia-led forces in the war in Yemen.
The defence secretary, Michael Fallon, is among ministers to have been made aware of the analysis, sources told The Guardian.
The Government said it takes the allegations “very seriously” and has raised them with the Saudi-led coalition.
The analysis comes after the prime minister of Yemen’s rebel Houthi government accused the UK of “war crimes” for supplying arms.
Because of their extraordinary risk to civilians, cluster bombs were banned in 2010 in an international treaty signed by Britain.
The UK’s signature on the Convention on Cluster Munitions also means it must be committed to preventing the banned weapon’s use by other nations.
Amnesty International has documented multiple examples of cluster bomb use in the war in Yemen, and blames the Saudi-led coalition for their deployment.
The Houthi Prime Minister, Abdel-Aziz bin Habtoor, said last week that the British government was profiting from the humanitarian crisis by selling munitions.
He told Sky News: “They have sold cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia.
“They know the Saudis are going to drop them on Yemen… in Saadah and in Sanaa and other provinces.
“I don’t think they are guilty of war crimes, I believe so. They are participating in the bombing of Yemen people.”
The British defence ministry declined to comment on the latest claims but a government spokesman said: “The government takes such allegations very seriously.
“We have analysed the case carefully using all available information, considering all possibilities, and raised the issue with the Saudi-led coalition.”

Though crews have been working around the clock to deal with the Tesoro Corp. pipeline break, which happened in a wheat field in September 2013, less than a third of the 840,000 gallons that spilled has been recovered — or ever will be, North Dakota Health Department environmental scientist Bill Suess said.
A farmer, Steve Jenkins, who’d smelled the crude oil for days, discovered the spill in his northwestern North Dakota field near Tioga — his combines’ tires were covered in it.
While the nearest home was a half-mile away and the state said no water sources were contaminated and no wildlife hurt, one of the largest onshore oil spills recorded in the U.S. serves for some as a cautionary example, especially given a recent pipeline break about 150 miles south and ongoing debates over the four-state Dakota Access pipeline.
“What happened to us happened and we can’t go back,” said Patty Jensen, Steve’s wife. This month’s pipeline break in Belfield, which belched an estimated 176,000 gallons of oil into a creek that feeds into the Little Missouri River, a tributary of the Missouri River, really rankled her.
“But I get really upset when I hear of a new one and I wonder what is being done to prevent these spills,” she said.
Scumbags, scoundrels, they should be charged by the FBI for manufacturing illegal substances…
December 18, 2016
A reverse buy bust appears to be in the works for the Albuquerque Police Department, but the details of how they plan to go about catching low-level drug users — by becoming crack cocaine manufacturers — signifies everything inherently corrupt about the U.S.’ war on drugs.
Burque Media exclusively revealed APD’s intentions to become temporary crack manufacturers, after a confidential source shared the affidavit about the impending bust.
“Powdered cocaine may be taken into APD’s Criminalistics Unit to be made into crack cocaine,” reads the Affidavit and Motion to Release Evidence, dated February 25, 2016, and signed by a District Court Judge. In addition to the police-manufactured crack, APD is also permitted to use methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin from its cataloged evidence stores to become drug dealers in order to catch individuals who use those illegal substances.
“Once the transaction is completed,” the document continues, “the individual purchasing the drugs will be arrested and charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance. The detectives will attempt to immediately retrieve the drugs sold.”
While high-level, volume-transporting, and sometimes violent drug dealers — created by the illegality of such substances in the State’s failed drug war — won’t be the target of this bust, small-time users will be entrapped by police con-artists and have their lives upended with serious charges. Police, in such a dual operation, become perpetrators of the very problem they claim to be combating — to catch individuals whose only harm is to their own person.
According to Burque Media’s source, police initiated the reverse sting operation, which will run through the end of 2016, pursuant to complaints from area businesses and residents.
“The business[es], residents, and patrons have complained about drug dealing throughout the City of Albuquerque,” claims the affidavit. “Citizens have contacted Detectives complaining about being asked, by people walking/driving through the City of Albuquerque, if they wanted to purchase drugs.”
As the anonymous source noted, APD’s bust likely targets the city’s most precariously situated and vulnerable residents: homeless drug addicts.
“Law enforcement has tried many methods and has been unable to effectively stop the supply of drugs to the street dealers and users in these areas,” the document states. “These methods include but are not limited too [sic] successfully purchasing drugs from drug dealers in the area […]
“It is believed that taking enforcement action against the purchasers of drugs in these areas, if well known, would reduce the demand for drugs in the City of Albuquerque.”
Obviously, Albuquerque isn’t looking to Portugal, where all drugs have been decriminalized to enormous success — including across-the-board drops in both usage and addiction rates — for a model to combat, ironically, issues stemming from America’s drug war. When an open and legal market exists for those who choose to use, and includes ease of obtaining help from treatment centers when necessary, residents and businesses wouldn’t be pestered by addicts on the street.
In fact, APD’s plans are troubling, even for insiders.
“This is a practice I have frowned upon because of the use of seized drugs already tagged into evidence, and I have not seen it for some time,” explained Pete Dinelli, former Chief Deputy District Attorney and former Chief Public Safety Officer, who doubted the veracity of the APD’s plans until the affidavit was filed in court. “It’s downright dangerous to be using drugs seized in other drug busts because of chain-of-custody issues and the risk associated with not being able to track what happens. The city could also be exposed to liability for using tainted drugs that they lose track of.”
Dinelli’s concerns may be justified. As if supplementing the use of logged drug evidence with police-made crack weren’t bad enough, the affidavit points to awareness the APD likely will lose some of its product over the course of the sting.
“Any drugs not used in this operation will be returned to the Albuquerque Police Department’s Evidence Unit,” the document concludes.
As Dinelli summarized of the whole operation, “This is a very poor law enforcement practice.”
When even the cops are manufacturing crack, you know the war on drugs is nothing short of a farce.

Dylan Charles – There is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent.
Dylan Charles, Editor
Dec 14, 2016
With so much vitriol flying in every direction these days about fake news, Russian propaganda, misinfo and disinfo, it’s crucial to acknowledge and understand the fact that there is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent. Many of the deliberate techniques of this form of social mind control are well-documented, having been revealed by industry insiders, experts, and content manufacturers.
Known as the father of modern propaganda, Edward Bernays was the original pioneer of social engineering via mass media. In the early 20th century Bernays laid the foundation for cultural programming at the whole-society level by helping to transform a mostly rural agrarian based society into a homogenized culture of consumers and devout statists.
“Bernays combined the work of people such as the French social psychologist Gustave Le Bon to create techniques which appeal to the subconscious emotions of the public, as opposed to engaging the public in rational and intellectual debate.” ~Steven Macmillan
The principles he set in motion have dramatically influenced the growth of our culture, and now, having carried his torch into the 21st century, here’s what several experts on modern brainwashing, propaganda and mind control have revealed about their craft.
One of the most important things happening in our world today is the corruption of grass-roots movements and how these movements are portrayed in the media to achieve very specific social and political results. We see this at work in major ways today as dozens of seemingly organic social movements are repeatedly used to create the ongoing narrative of social chaos, racism, division, and political protest.
Sharyl Attkisson, author and former investigative reporter with CBS News, explains the tactic known as ‘astroturfing,’ which is a scheme to fake grassroots movements a
“Astroturf is a perversion of grassroots. Astroturf is when political, corporate or other special interests disguise themselves and publish blogs, start facebook and twitter accounts, publish ads, letters to the editor, or simply post comments online, to try to fool you into thinking an independent or grassroots movement is speaking.” ~ Sharyl Attkisson
These methods are used to give people the impression that there is widespread support for an agenda, when, in reality, the public may not have any true interest at play. Astroturf tactics are also used to discredit or criticize those that disagree with certain agendas, using stereotypical names such as conspiracy theorist, quack, racist, and other popular catch terms.
Here is a summary of astroturf tactics, as described by Attkisson:
A thorough presentation on the matter by Attkisson can be seen, here:
Subliminal messaging is a staple of modern mind control, and when bombarded with such cleverly concealed information, the emotional mind can be triggered, and a person’s intellect can be subjugated in favor of base mental processes such as fear or sexual desire. A person may not consciously realize why they start to become more attracted to certain behaviors, lifestyles or products, but the attraction is real and materializes in their personal choices.
“..subliminal ads are used as a technique not only to increase sales but is also used to divert youth and involve them in such type of behaviour which is only hazardous to the consumer.” ~ (Impact of Subliminal Messaging in TV Advertisements on Consumer Behaviour – A Case Study of Youth in Kashmir Province of J&K, Blue Ocean Research Journals, source)
In the 2011 documentary Programming the Nation, filmmaker and former advertising sales rep, graphic artist and digital media producer, Jeff Warrick, provides modern examples of how subliminal messages and other subconscious techniques are used in advertising and other media to reinforce cultural norms and social programs such as consumerism, health choices, the materialization of women‘s bodies, and the glorification of violence.
“Could such techniques really be contributing to a variety of social, political and economic problems currently present in our culture? Such as obesity, anorexia, and other eating disorders? The ongoing war on terror? And what about the ever-increasing amounts of debt, that has tightened its grip on a growing percentage of the population?” ~Programming the Nation
In the film, Warrick examines how these effective techniques have conditioned the United States public to accept certain lifestyle choices by veiled suggestion placed in ads, television programs, films and newscasts. Watch the full documentary, here:
The effects of decades of manipulative media can be seen in the gridlock of ideas, the overly-confrontational and divisive nature of modern discourse, and the extreme homogenization of American cities and towns, where people now look the same, buy the same things, eat the same food, and share a narrow spectrum of ideas and values.
These two expert examples are but a couple among many techniques used to sway public opinion and change public behavior, but for these to be effective, the public must be remain unaware of the how the science of social programming and brainwashing are at work manipulating our lives.
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.” ~ Specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe
