    “Oh but I thought you were convinced it was brought down by a fighter jet? Whatever happened to that idea? You’re getting all confused again.

    Actually your man admits that he’d left the military before MH17 was destroyed (that’s if he really exists) so can’t be sure what happened. Even if he’s telling the truth the launcher may have been captured or the crew may have defected with it.”


    The media reports stated the airliner had what looked like heavy machine gun fire consistent with a fighter jet, since the rebels have no fighter jets, who else could have shot the airliner down.

    Also why would this soldier come out now against his country, when most of world already believes Putin shot down the airliner, via the rebels.

    Unfortunately I feel we’ll never fully know the truth on the matter, but it would appear more evidence is stacking up against the west backed Ukraine.

    I see no such evidence against Putin and the Ukrainian rebels yet.

    Re the North Korea Sony, movie release fiasco.

    I had to laugh today when I watched President Obama, (brow furled) condemning North Korea as a dictator run state,and that they shouldn’t be interfering in another nations business, namely the US, and Sony’s new film.

    President Obama (chin up and shoulders back) said that the US will not bow to North Korean threats.

    Of course the USA has been threatening, destablising undermining and backing coups, of countries, around the world since the 1950’s.

    I’m no fan of the North Korean brainwashed regime, but sometimes listening to Obama, and the US take the moral high ground, lets you see the whole picture, only then do you begin to understand the machinations, of a so called democratic nation.

    Sofia. (I’ve banged on the world a couple of times).

    As a wee boy I used to ask, “why did that stupid woman eat that apple?”

    Sofia. (Four Horsemen).

    No wonder it has 2.5 million views.

    My mother used to say,”you can get used to anything, except, hanging, and you don’t get time to get used to that”.

    Do you remember the Westminster machine telling us not to drink the water when we go abroad?

    Then THEY joined the Common Market and we were told it was our water supply that was not so great. No wonder coming through all those (cheap) lead pipes.

    We are fed so much rubbish, and we swallow it. Well I don’t, well not all the time.

    I write and complain. THEY don’t like that. Maybe that is why a fortune is spent following me all over the place, day, and night, when necessary. Maybe trying to find something to discredit me, or, convict me of something.

    Better if they spied on themselves. There seems to be a lot to discover, if recent revelations are anything to go by.

    Stop the world, I want to get off!. Not with a bullet in my head.

    There as been some wonderful links to things I did not know, only suspected. For that I am very grateful. Thank you all very much.

    Knowledge is light.

    Sometimes it takes a whistleblower to provide that light, for without whistleblowers we would all be kept in the dark by those we employ and pay for, in government.

    More courage and confidence to the Whistleblowers of the world.

    Give them “LALDY”.

    Cover up in real time

    The technology is there to control the horizontal and vertical, all the while dishing out mushroom treatment; keeping the punters in the dark and throwing shit at them.

    the “only available” source is to be found here


    condemning North Korea as a dictator run state

    Very true indeed, although when two million people walked out of their homes and marched the streets of London, in protest to war on Iraq (dogged by the TV stenographers asking;”what do you think will you achieve by doing this?”) . Our Dear Leaders retorted; “I am not going to run the country based on opinion poles and focus groups findings”. Evidently when the Koreans do the same it is a “Dictatorship”, but when our Dear Leaders decide to do as they wish it is only signs of strong leadership and their strength of character.

    The hypocrisy goes on!

    Best method of advertising for a crap movie to make it available through the pay for view, as well as serving the cause of the spooks keeping the narrative of rouge regime story lines alive and kicking.

    North Korea proposes ‘joint investigation’ into Sony hack

    Decrying U.S. allegations that it was behind a cyberattack on Sony Pictures as an “unfounded rumor,” North Korea on Saturday proposed a “joint investigation” into the hacking that prompted the studio to cancel the theatrical release of the comedy “The Interview,” which centers on a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

    Although Telegraph sticking to the usual protocols of communication with respect to the “declared enemies of the moment” goes on;

    North Korea demands joint inquiry with US into Sony hacking scandal

    Pyongyang threatens “grave consequences” if demands for dual probe are not met

    Imagine if the punters were not kept in the dark and were not fed a diet of infantile stories? The cost of Prozac dissolved in the drinking water alone would have been prohibitive, and a cause of concern for a debt straddled government!

    The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, now formerly known as ISIS, is nothing more than an excuse for a “slush fund” created by the C.I.A. and Pentagon to finance their private armies, war machines and weapons producing factories around the globe, as pointed out by Rep. Barbara Lee, D-California.

    “It’s a gimmick to avoid the budget cuts that are punishing other critical areas of the budget like education and health. Fundamentally, it is a black box of unchecked federal spending that needs to be eliminated. All DOD programs should be funded from the base-budget which is more than sufficient.”, Lee said in a statement to CBS.

    Now ISIS or ISIL, whatever you want to call it, will now go by the name “Daesh”, according to the Pentagon and other U.S. allies such as France.

    Signifying the hard exposure of the group by independent news agencies like Intellihub and others, which have forced the powers-that-be to keep shifting the paradigm, creating an illusion of an enemy, a boogieman if you will, that is simply funded by U.S.

    interests to keep the gears of war turning. All the while lining the globalists pockets with monies looted from the corporation of the United States, i.e. American taxpayer.

    Keep reading:


    Like a car model which periodically has a face lift, and is sent back out to the public as new model, so Al-Qaeda, has periodically evolved, across the middle east.

    The Saudi/west backed private army or murder squad, whatever you want to call it, has evolved continuously.

    From Al-Qaeda to ISIS to ISL to IS, and possibly in the future Daesh. The Saudi/west powers that back these groups must keep evolving them, in order to keep us/we the public afraid of them, these groups are whatever their masters, wish them to be at the time, that’s most relevant, to what reviles the public the most.

    We are being coerced into agreeing with our governments actions, based on the actions of government run terror groups.

    Giyane; “I’m sure Craig is quite capable of making up his own mind”

    And he has, but if it isn’t a blind spot that’s causing every step of his analysis to be proved wrong, then what can it possibly be ?

    The United States plotted the coup which took place in Ukraine in February 2014 in response to Russia’s policy in Syria, says George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, known as “Shadow CIA”.

    The United States is behind the February coup in Kiev, which came in response to Russia’s stance on Syria, said George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, a global intelligence company.

    Russia has repeatedly said that the coup in Kiev was organized by the US, Friedman told Kommersant newspaper. Indeed, it was the most overt coup in history, the political analyst stressed.

    Keep Reading:


    It would seem a reasonable explanation, as to why, the US tried to blame Russia for the Ukrainian troubles, and why Obama is keen on imposing more sanctions on Russia.

    The United States decided to act following Russia’s successes in the Middle East, a key region for the US. Americans saw that Russians could influence what was happening in the Middle East. Russians are one of the many challenges in the region that the US faces.

    Now ISIS or ISIL, whatever you want to call it, will now go by the name “Daesh”, according to the Pentagon and other U.S. allies such as France.

    The give away is in the “IS = Islamic State”, The ISIL, ISIS etc were the preambles for the “IS” the target was the other Islamic State Iran, but the ISIS turned out to be the name of an Egyptian beauty in the ancient times and not so scary, then there was the ISIL that did not get any traction. Now the Arabic abbreviation of “Daesh” is rolled out in the hope of standardisation across the board.

    No doubt in the West this new foreign “entity” will probably get a better traction.

    ISIL kills 100 members trying to quit terror group: Report

    a Syria opposition source speaking on condition of anonymity said he had “verified 100 executions” of foreign ISIL militants in the city of Raqqa.

    Militants belonging to the extremist group in Raqqa have spoken of a military police created to clamp down on foreign members who do not report for duty.

    Researchers at the International Center for the Study of Radicalization at King’s College London have found out that in total, between 30 and 50 Britons want to return but fear jail.

    If abubakr elliot baghdadi is the fabled “Khalif of Islam” how comes the saud king is still seated on his throne, and the PG emirs – they should have handed over to him by now? But the somali twins and wickes counter staff are too stupid to see this.

    I hope you feel better soon. Many thanks for your blogs this year which have been insightful, well informed and full of integrity. Take care, wishing you a peaceful Christmas!

    Justice system upside down… Saw this headline on the BBC website.
    “Lockerbie bombing: ‘No evidence’ that Megrahi is innocent”
    Fact is there isn’t a shred of evidence that links Megrahi to the bombing.
    But these days ,you have to provide proof that you are innocent.
    So in the good ol days when justice was more just,the headline would’ve read,” no evidence that Megrahi is guilty of anything.” May he rest in peace.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    “I’m no fan of the North Korean brainwashed regime”

    Forced out of Old Droopy Chop’s clenched teeth, no doubt…..

    As Nick Cohen would say, the obligatory “clearing of the throat” before continuing with the usual anti-US narrative.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)


    “Fact is there isn’t a shred of evidence that links Megrahi to the bombing.”

    Of course not, Donny.

    Only you can see the truth the deluded masses cannot.

  • nevermind

    Thanks for the red robin story, very festive…can you add some falling snowflakes John?….;)

    thought to post here rather than page four on the last thread.
    A truly western and pro NATO interview by der Spiegel with CIA agent Yatseniuk. He denied that Kiev has stopped social security benefits blaming ‘terrorists’ robbing his cash deliveries to ATM’s.

    And he dissed Kohl, Schmidt and Schroeder for being too nice/scared to/of Putin,
    As for the NATO accession question, he is holding firm to what decided at the Bucharest summit.


  • Herbie

    “Only you can see the truth the deluded masses cannot.”

    Desperately, habby tries to pretend that the masses are in possession of the full facts of the Lockerbie case, rather than just the media account.

    Like where in the professional world could such a position be sustained. In Medicine, in physics, in Law. Nowhere would anyone argue any such thing, and yet that’s exactly what he did.

    It’s like talking to a repeating clock.

    There’s no history, no context, no debate, nothing but an eternal present until suddenly it all just stops.

    You only have to say to habby that the vast majority of people in UK, for example, wouldn’t have the faintest clue about the intricacies of EU procedures, and his fraud is exposed for what it is.

    Even he himself regularly enjoys pointing up such errors amongst the uninitiated and unwashed.

    Another total fraud.

  • giyane

    Apologists for torture like Habbabkuk should also be added to the list. I know he says he is against torture {of smallcuddly puppy-dogs} but the underlying purpose of his comments is to block the progress of the criminal conviction of all involved in torture.

    What a hypocrite!

    John Freeman has died aged 99.

    Does anyone else remember his compelling series of penetrating one to one interviews under the title ‘Face to Face’? I was a young woman and had a terrible crush on him. Another world and another time.

    He was also a Labour MP and edited the New Statesman.


    The list of subjects included Jung and Martin Luther King.

    Herbie has now become a medical expert

    “Echinacea is very good for colds and flu, and much else.”

    “Olive leaf is an even stronger tonic. Excellent for many other things as well:”

    Well not quite




    My advice is listen to doctors and phamacists rather than quacks and kranks such as Herbie. Read Ben Goldacre if you want to look into these matters further.

    His political analysis of course has even less factual backing.
