Jack Straw – The Guilty Man Lies 292


My RT interview today giving eyewitness evidence that Jack Straw is lying about his personal complicity in torture. Straw has been allowed to lie repeatedly about his on UK media for the past 24 hours, as have other British establishment figures. Despite the fact that it is infamous that I was sacked by Straw for blowing the whistle on CIA torture, and the undeniable documentary evidence of this, not one UK media outlet has allowed me to contradict Straw. I have contacted every major British news outlet and been blanked by every one.

    Fascinating that some actually believe that (a) a deep concern over illegal practices such as torture, and (b) asking our correspondent “Sofia” why they pretend to be a young girl , are somehow mutually exclusive. The two cannot – apparently – simultaneously exist in the same universe, in the minds of the goodie-goodie gang.

    One might equally well ask why a middle aged man devotes time and effort pretending to be a young girl, when there are abominations such as torture to be tackled.

    One might go further, and ask why “Sofia” is providing this distraction, when a simple “Yes” or “No” would have done at the beginning.

    If anyone’s post appears to vanish into thin air and never appear, please assume it has been held back by the spam filter and will be freed by moderators as soon as they can. You can post up a short message in the thread noting you appear to have spam filter problems (which the spam filter should let through) but best not to attempt to repost the same comment multiple times in a row as that just convinces the spam filter you really are a spammer even more!

    but Brand generally looked out of it tonight, tranced out on summat

    He lost his mojo after his ‘pound shop Enoch Powell’ comment struck home, and looked distinctly uneasy when the guy with the walking stick challenged him about standing as an MP and told him that would be less of a challenge than getting off illegal drugs- something Brand claims already to have done.

    Why would there be “a good chance of [the demonstration] turning violent” Habbabkuk?

    It was a peaceful demonstration by Palestinians on their own land.
    The demonstrators were violently put down by the IDF on behalf of the racist Zionist settlers – Jewish violators of international law.

    The various videos I’ve seen appear to show some rather agitated Palestinians and a lot of pushing and shoving on both sides. Would you disagree with that?

    ++++++++++++++++++

    By the way, do you know anything about whether the Palestinian minister had health issues and what the outcome of the

    Mary claims to know the answers to both of those questions of mine but for some reason she hasn’t provided links and references.

    The “pound shop Enoch Powell” quip was a good one that went down well with the bussed-in majority Labour audience, but Brand was as usual utterly clueless on the grown-up points, such as how the country’s infrastructure and resources can cope with uncontrolled mass-immigration. He also did a good turn at slagging off the rich whilst as ever omitting to mention the £15 million or so he has accrued for himself (someone should have just asked him straight up what his tax arrangements are because he always seems to get very irrate on that topic). He joins a long line of mouthy leftist gobshites who talk the talk on equality and taxing the rich whilst managing to remain extremely wealthy themselves.

    Farage did well to ignore Brand’s childish taunts and UKIP probably secured a few thousand extra votes when loony SWP activist ‘Bunny la Roche’ started ranting away from the back row. Other than that the usual Labour plants with pre-scripted attacks on Farage at the ready and the predictable cries of ‘waycist’ whenever Farage spoke were all to be expected. All in all, though, a good performance from Farage who made some good points well if you actually listened to what he was saying. It was notable that on the topic of the NHS he spoke a lot of sense and was surprisingly further to the left than any of the main parties.

    While Farage seemed to be thinking ‘Why do I bother?”, Penny Morduant was an excruciating embarrassment to the Tory party, not appearing to have the first clue about anything her party is supposed to be doing. She should stick to cocks. The Labour woman was truly dreadful – tribal loyalty to the Party, humourless, feminist, lacking any charm or charisma whatsoever. The Times columnist Camilla Cavendish came across well and one gets the impression she is an honest jounalist in contrast to most of her trade. Brand, as already mentioned, appeared to be wasted on something – maybe some pretty heavy prescription drugs for severe narcissistic personality disorder – but Cavendish dealt with him well, playing to his ego.

    “Returning to the topic* –
    It doesn’t matter much to me what Sofia’s real identity is; she’s hugely entertaining and always worth a read. Unlike the 15-year-old schoolgirl Reluctant Observer, whose struggles with PMT are all too obvious, the Establishment’s automatic spambot Habbabcuk, who exists only as binary digits in an FCO server, or….no, I’ll leave RD out of it. He’s obviously the resident dissident, and is probably honest.

    The public now knows even more graphic details about the extent of America’s torture program, but it appears that won’t be making any difference in the Justice Department decision to charge no one in the government with a crime.

    The Justice Department review considered “all potentially applicable substantive criminal statutes as well as the statutes of limitations and jurisdictional provisions that govern prosecutions under those statutes,” according to department documents.

    At the time, Durham also made clear that nobody would be prosecuted who had “acted in good faith and within the scope of the legal guidance given by the Office of Legal Counsel regarding the interrogation of detainees.

    “This inquiry was extraordinarily thorough and we stand by our previously announced decision not to initiate criminal charges,” the Justice Department spokesman said.

    The Obama administration has essentially shielded CIA officers involved in the program with its “look forward, not backward” focus. While determined to examine the agency’s past actions overall, the White House has been equally insistent that the CIA officers not be scapegoated for the legal tap dance the George W. Bush administration used to approve the program.
    ……………………………

    Well that’s it then the story goes like, we’ve been caught and we’re kinda sorry, but…..we ain’t prosecuting anyone.

    The Pentagon has threatened Russia with redeploying nuclear cruise missiles to Europe, accusing Moscow of violating two arms control treaties.

    “We don’t have ground-launched cruise missiles in Europe now obviously because they’re prohibited by the treaty,” said Brian McKeon, principal deputy undersecretary for policy at the Department of Defense.

    “But that would obviously be one option to explore,” he added.

    Washington says Moscow violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.
    ……………………………

    Surely no country in Europe would be idiotic and stupid enough to house nukes and make themselves a number one target.

    Oh wait a minute, the UK fit the bill, as its already the 51st state, and it already houses nukes.

    “Just get real for a moment and ask yourself how you can make a difference so that real torture is exposed and eradicated and the perpetrators held to account.”

    But when I asked the MAYGI to tell us what HE was doing to “make a difference”….answer came there none!

    Violent foreign thugs have been granted British citizenship on a ‘no questions asked’ basis due to errors by borders bureaucrats, an official report has revealed, prompting David Cameron to apologise for “extremely regrettable” mistakes.

    One immigrant was given British citizenship although he admitted stabbing someone to death in his home country, after an official neglected to read his notes.

    The Prime Minister said the decision to grant citizenship to the man who knifed someone to death was “extremely regrettable” and added that the Home Office was working to withdraw his citizenship.

    The report sampled only 179 files, raising concerns that thousands are slipping through the net.

    Yesterday it was the buffoon Gideon Osborne trusting big business to pay the correct tax.

    Israel and not America was behind the hacking of millions of French phones, it was claimed today.

    In the latest extraordinary twist in the global eavesdropping scandal, Israeli agents are said to have intercepted more than 70 million calls and text messages a month.

    Up until now the French have been blaming the U.S., even summoning the country’s Paris ambassador to provide an explanation.

    But today’s Le Monde newspaper provides evidence that it was in fact Israeli agents who were listening in.
    France first suspected the U.S. of hacking into former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s communications network when he was unsuccessfully trying for re-election in 2012.

    Intelligence officials Bernard Barbier and Patrick Pailloux travelled from Paris to Washington to demand an explanation, but the Americans hinted that the Israelis were to blame.
    ………………………..

    I wouldn’t put anything past that lot, hopefully France will take positive action against the perpetrators.

    The death Palestinian Minister Ziad Abu Ein was the result of beating, teargas-induced asphyxiation and obstruction by the Israeli army to transfer him to a hospital on time, a Palestinian official said, citing official forensic results.

    Palestinian Civil Affairs Minister Hassan Al-Sheikh, detailing the forensic results to the official Palestinian radio station today, asserted that the findings show that Abu Ein, who was fatally injured yesterday during an Israeli clampdown on a Palestinian protest against settlements and the Separation Wall near Ramallah, had been “murdered”.

    “The forensic report is an essential piece of evidence of Israel’s responsibility [for Abu Ein’s death],” Al-Sheikh said following yesterday evening’s autopsy.

    He added that the Palestinian authorities carried out the autopsy in an East Jerusalem university hospital after refusing to allow an Israeli medical centre to handle the procedure.

    However, an Israeli doctor was present during the autopsy and he confirmed that the process was carried out “professionally”, Al-Sheikh explained.

    On December 8, US Senate members passed “S. 2142: Venezuela Defense of Human Rights and Civil Society Act of 2014.”

    “A bill to impose targeted sanctions on persons responsible for violations of human rights of antigovernment protesters in Venezuela, to strengthen civil society in Venezuela, and for other purposes.”

    Passed by voice vote. Unanimously. Disgracefully. House members expected to follow suit.

    The Spanish parliament has approved a highly contentious bill that puts major restrictions on citizens’ right to protest.

    The Public Security Law, which was passed in a 181-141 vote on Thursday, limits protests to authorized rallies only.

    The law also makes all unauthorized gatherings punishable by fines of up to 600,000 euros ($745,000).

    The measure has been fiercely criticized by opposition politicians and activist groups. Several lawmakers tied up their mouths in protest as the bill was debated in the parliament.

    Opponents say the legislation violates the right to protest, limits freedom of expression and gives more power to police.
    …………………….

    What next a Spanish form of the Patriot Act? I can’t see Catalonians abiding by this law.

    Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has commended the Irish parliament for a vote in favor of recognizing a Palestinian state.

    Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said on Thursday that the Irish parliament’s move is “an important step forward.”

    He also said that the recognition is a positive international and political development.

    This comes as Irish Foreign Minister Charlie Flanagan said on Wednesday that his country was considering an early recognition of Palestine as an independent state, despite opposition from Israel.

    The Irish foreign minister made the remarks in parliament in the capital, Dublin, after lawmakers approved a non-binding motion regarding Palestinian statehood.

    The motion agreed by Irish lawmakers called on the government to “officially recognize the State of Palestine, on the basis of the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as the capital, as established in United Nations resolutions.
