Obama and Putin on phone when MH17 was hit

 
Dr.  Strangelove:  American and Russian Presidents in phone conversation
 
According to this report Putin had called Obama and they were in the middle of a phone conversation when Malaysian flight MH17 flying over Eastern Ukraine,was hit by some projectile, killing all on board (290 passengers).  According to other sources...there is a theory that MH17 was mistaken for Putin's plane, which at that very moment was flying him back to Russia from his official visit to countries in Latin American.  Both planes were in close proximity.  Now, wouldn't that have been an event of bizarre proportions...even leaving Stanley Kubrick's 60's black comedy, Dr. Strangelove, (above) in the dust...if Putin had been killed while talking with Obama on the phone.
 
I am following this event closely and if my reader(s) want to see the back and forth discussion I am having with the Russophobes, megaphonies and shills...go to CBC.ca news and look for the latest story with comments on this topic.  Both sides and their supporters are accusing each other of downing the jet.  It's been a timely distraction to Israel's latest ground assault on the indigenous people of Gaza.
 
It is very early days in the investigation of this latest false flag...atrocity...but some directions I'm leaning are that it was Ukrainian military jets air to air missiles that took out MH17 rather than the BUK surface to air missile that has been speculated about.  Witnesses say the bodies look like they have been dead for some time.  Shades of missing MH370!
 
As for an assassination attempt on Putin, I would not rule that out.  I would not put that past the perps.  He is the only one standing in the way of their evil schemes.

Oh, the answer to the Quiz in the last post is:  Moscow!  I spent three days there recently and loved the place.  The photo was taken on the hill overlooking the city.  Every evening, hundreds of motorcyclists gather, admire each other bikes, chat and wait for the sun to go down.  When it is dark (and the police are forbidden to chase them) they race around the city in groups.  Now, I ask you, would any city in North America allow such freedom?

You Can't Make This Stuff Up?



What is this?  A Haarp cloud formation?

Okay, folks.  Talking about the "truth" in my last post got me to thinking more about what constitutes "truth" in today's blogosphere.  For me, truth is generally something that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end (as I said in my last post) but it can also be something so ridiculous and farfetched...so improbable and/or so clearly illegal that you just can't believe they said it, did it...or it happened...or, if it did...that the perpetrator got away with it.  Getting away with something (also called 'hiding in plain sight') is a hallmark of modern day truth.

I went through the blogosphere....looking for examples of what I'm talking about... and found so many I finally had to put a lid on it.  here are eight examples just from the past few weeks.  I'm posting the links with the relevant quotes.  This stuff is so amazing I will make no further comment...just let the reader make their own mind up about what's going on here:



(1)  More American hypocrisy on Bergdahl

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/06/07/365896/more-american-hypocrisy-on-bergdahl/

"...Another round of hypocrisy is storming America.  “Heroic” members of the military, current and foreign, including Senator John McCain, are attacking Obama because former Taliban prisoner (American soldier) Bergdahl has not been arrested and tried for making dozens of propaganda broadcasts and training enemy troops to attack and kill Americans.

No, wait a minute, that wasn’t Bergdahl that is what Senator John McCain did when he was a prisoner of war. His reward for treason, including 32 propaganda broadcasts made for the North Vietnamese and his months training their air defense commands, crediting him personally with the destruction of 60 American combat aircraft and the capture of deaths of their crews (more America flyers killed by McCain than any enemy pilot in history), was a seat in the US Senate and 14 medals...'

 (2) "Was 9/11 an Inside job, or a Mossad Job?"

http://mycatbirdseat.com/2013/08/was-911-an-inside-job-or-a-mossad-job/

Few people know, for example, that at the time of the attacks, the American federal police were busy dismantling the largest Israeli spy network ever caught on U.S. soil. In March 2001, the National CounterIntelligence Center (NCIC) posted this message on its website: “In the past six weeks, employees in federal office buildings located throughout the United States have reported suspicious activities connected with individuals representing themselves as foreign [Israeli] students selling or delivering artwork”. The NCIC states that, “these individuals have also gone to the private residences of senior federal officials under the guise of selling art”.

 

Then in the summer, after a number of incidents of this type in its premises, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) compiled a report which would be revealed to the public by the Washington Post on November 23rd, 2001, followed by a Carl Cameron’s four-part documentary broadcast on Fox News from December 11th, 2001. On March 14th, 2002, an article in Le Monde signed by Sylvain Cypel also referred to the report, shortly before the French magazine Intelligence Online made it fully accessible on the Internet. The DEA report listed 140 Israelis, aged between 20 and 30, arrested since March 2001. Organized in twenty teams of four to eight members, they visited at least “36 sensitive sites of the Department of Defense”. Many of them were identified as members of the Mossad, and six were in possession of phones paid for by a former Israeli Vice Consul. Sixty arrests have occurred after September 11th, bringing the total number of Israeli spies arrested to 200. Those who were subjected to a lie detector test failed. However, thanks to a decision that would come from the Attorney General John Ashcroft, all were eventually released.

 (3) "US silence on ISIL offensive dubious
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/06/12/366643/us-silence-on-isil-offensive-dubious/

"...The following four reasons explain the US’s inaction vis-à-vis the ISIL’s terrorist activities in Syria and particularly in Iraq.
 
1. Saudi Arabia got disappointed after Iraqis massively voted in their country’s parliamentary elections. In the meantime, a three-year war in Syria failed to dissuade the Syrians from participating in their country’s presidential election and re-elect Bashar al-Assad. In order to vent its frustration, Saudi Arabia did its utmost to avoid the establishment of Islamic democracy, which started in Iran, in Iraq. The Saudi regime is opposed to democracy and the US rejects Islamic democracy. Therefore, the Riyadh-Washington alliance is defending terrorists opposing Islamic democracy in the Middle East. We have to keep in mind that a main reason for the Saudi regime’s warmongering in Syria was its failure in post-Saddam Iraq..."

(4) "More Stupid Chess Moves by Obama"

http://rense.com/general96/morestupid.html

"...Why is the US and EU pressuring Bulgaria and Serbia [to stop building] over the South Stream pipeline? It is owned and controlled by Russia. The Nabucco pipeline was a USA ­ Soros plan and it is a dead pipeline plan.  Soros is also the main proponent behind that is named White Stream 1 that was to have run from Georgia through CRIMEA and into Ukraine to supply EU with natural gas. Now do you understand why they are hopping mad about Crimea?  If you can read a map and know where Crimea is, maybe you will better understand why that piece of the Grand Chessboard being taken by Russia has stirred up so much nonsense in Ukraine..."

"...The current fiasco is somewhat akin to the movie “A Bridge Too Far” and one of the biggest mistakes the Allies made during World War II. However, the current intentional chaos and dissension is all about ‘A Pipeline Too Far’.  The USA failed to get its pipeline across Afghanistan, so yes, leave 10,000 troops there to protect it when it finally gets built. The USA failed to back up Russia from the pipeline ROW in Georgia in the August 2008 fiasco in that nation.


They are pushing to stop the South Stream because their ‘planners’ now want to run a pipeline from Azerbaijan and Qatar into Europe from the South called TAP, for Trans-Adriatic Pipeline.


They did the feasibility study for this project in 2003, and in typical EU and US fashion have delayed talking much about it until they took their shot to get total control of Ukraine. 

What they are not showing is the US lost most of the Caspian Basin due to their 9-11-2001 lies and their Failed Business Plan. There is to be another pipeline from Qatar up through Iraq and connect in Turkey so they have enough natural gas to make this project even worth thinking about. Azerbaijan cannot go head-to-head with the energy might of Russia, Rosneft and Gazprom.

(5) Australian Government's $360 million bank account grab.  Could this happen in the US and Canada? 
http://xrepublic.tv/node/9404  Australia snatching "dormant" bank accounts
THE federal government has seized a record $360 million from household bank accounts that have been dormant for just three years, prompting outrage in some quarters amid complaints that pensioners and retirees have lost deposits.
Figures from the Australian Security and Investments Commission (ASIC) show almost $360 million was collected from 80,000 inactive accounts in the year to May under new rules introduced by Labor. The new rules lowered the threshold at which the government is allowed to snatch funds from accounts that remain idle from seven years to three years.
The rule change has delivered the government a massive bonanza with the money collected in the year to May more than the total collected in the past five decades combined. Between 1959 and 2012, the total collected was $330 million
***
 (6) Iraq is a place where Americans suffered
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/06/13/366709/iraq-a-place-where-americans-suffered/

"...Still, US news programs tended to focus on US deaths, ignoring or downplaying the much larger number of Iraqis killed in the war the US launched. As NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams (6/10/14) put it, "After all the American lives there were lost, all those who came home grievously wounded, Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, has now fallen under the control of an Al-Qaeda offshoot. " And CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley told viewers (6/10/14), "Another major piece of what America fought for in Iraq was lost today."
 
And here's CNN host Wolf Blitzer (6/10/14):  "This is heartbreaking. The United States spent 10 years there. We assumed that Iraq would emerge a peaceful, stable democracy after the hundreds of billions of dollars the US invested, the 4,500 US troops killed, tens of thousands who came home without arms or legs or burned, post-traumatic stress, and look at this disaster.
 
Blitzer was interviewing Peter Brookes of the right-wing Heritage Foundation, who refused to concede that the war was a mistake because Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. "We didn't know that at the time," he told Blitzer–which of course depends on who "we" are. But it's not as if Brookes thinks US government should avoid blame–just not the Bush administration: "The real blunder is when the Obama administration got out in 2009 and left the Iraqis on their own."

(7)  Takfiri islamist fighters in Iraq are run by Zionists

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/06/14/366924/intl-zionism-will-suffer-takfiri-blowback/

A high-ranking Iranian official has described Takfiri militants operating inside Iraq as the proxy of imperialist powers and international Zionism, noting that they will finally turn against their sponsors.  Iran’s Vice President and Director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi on Saturday termed Takfiri militants as enemies of Islam and Muslim nations, blaming international Zionism and arrogant powers for terrorist attacks by the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants across Iraq.  Salehi added that the West wrongly assumes that it will not be affected by the terrorists that they have created, adding, “These Takfiris will certainly go after their own sponsors and creators.”

And, finally, I have saved the best for last:

(8)  Study:  FBI has used fabrication of evidence and entrapment in nearly 95% of cases where people have been prosecuted as "terrorists"

http://rt.com/usa/166060-usa-fbi-terrorism-prosecutions/

Nearly 95 per cent of terrorist arrests have been the result of FBI foiling its own entrapment plots as a part of the so-called post-9/11 War on Terror, a new study revealed.  According to the report entitled ‘Inventing Terrorists: The Lawfare of Preemptive Prosecution’, the majority of arrests involved the unjust prosecution of targeted Muslim Americans.
The 175-page study by Muslim advocacy group SALAM analyzes 399 individuals in cases included on the list of the US Department of Justice from 2001 to 2010.
“According to this study’s classification, the number of pre-emptive prosecution cases is 289 out of 399, or 72.4 percent. The number of elements of pre-emptive prosecution cases is 87 out of 399, or 21.8 percent. Combining pre-emptive prosecution cases and elements of pre-emptive prosecution cases, the total number of such cases on the DOJ list is 376, or 94.2 percent,” the report concluded.
The authors define ‘pre-emptive prosecution’ as “a law enforcement strategy adopted after 9/11, to target and prosecute individuals or organizations whose beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations raise security concerns for the government.”

"...One of the FBI’s strategies involved “using agents provocateur to actively entrap targets in criminal plots manufactured and controlled by the government.”

“The government uses agents provocateur to target individuals who express dissident ideologies and then provides those provocateurs 25 with fake (harmless) missiles, bombs, guns, money, encouragement, friendship, and the technical and strategic planning necessary to see if the targeted individual can be manipulated into planning violent or criminal action,” the report concluded..."

Self-reflections on my 75th Post

 
greencrow.... in a contemplative frame of mind
 
Recently, when I tried to update the template (format) of this blog I found I couldn't access the "update screen".  Don't know what that's all about...perhaps "Blogger" has some new rules I'm unaware of.  I wanted to inform my reader(s) about this blog and how it works.  For instance, when I cover a topic (such as 9/11) in a post, rather than doing a whole bunch of new posts, I will more often than not go back to my original post and do an UPDATE.  So, it might be worth the reader's time every so often to review older posts and check for updates.  Secondly, I wanted to do was comment on my philosophy as a "truth blogger"...what moves me to share my opinions and thoughts with others via the Internet.  Finally, I wanted to provide links to some of my favourite blogs--which I have done at the end of this post.
 
Throughout human history there has been a timeless debate which has escalated in the past few decades.  The debate can be summed up as "Who Owns the Truth?"  The Bible reports that, during the passion of Jesus, Pontious Pilate asked Jesus "What is truth?"  Interestingly, Jesus never answered him directly.  My theory is truth lies within each and everyone of us as a crucial element of who we are as individuals.  Each one of us has a 'truth detector' within, that needs to be resonated before we will accept anything as "fact".  Conversely, if our interior BS alarm goes off...we will respond by rejecting the "fact".

This debate about truth reached unparalleled heights after the atrocity called 9/11.   After that False Flag event, the traditional mainstream media (and much of the alternative media) not only dropped the ball in investigating and reporting on this event....burdened as they were by their corporatist ties/owners with government/military/industrial ties...but deliberately lied and misled the public.  This systemic and relentless lying led to at least two destructive wars with millions killed or displaced.

Truth blogging is a reaction to the above and comes in many shapes and styles.  Copied below are some examples of truth blogging:

Press TV reports that Mossad responsible for 9/11

Kenny's Sideshow post about the Big Whites

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth series on Cognitive Dissonance

Kenny's sideshow post from Twelfth Bough re 9/11 Nukes Blew Up the Towers

Farage tells the EU where to go....what truth to power looks like

Vince Li is allowed unescorted passes in the community

Morris Herman's analysis of the crisis in the Ukraine and other geopolitical comments

Interview with Joaquin Flores re Putin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUpIQs3A0G4

You Tube Timelapse of all nuclear explosions between 1945 and 1998

AIPAC Conference Promotional Video - satire

When I first came on the Internet in the late 1900's, the late, great Joe Vialls was creating a template for truth posting in the blogosphere.  To this day, no one can make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end like Joe did--with his shocking break-through exposes of government crimes and corruption.

http://www.whale.to/b/vialls_h.html

Joe became and remains my greatest mentor and guru.  Since that time I met one other great blogger "Piglipstick", who became a virtual friend and mentor:

http://piglipstick.blogspot.ca/

Piglipstick also passed away, a year or so ago.  I will never forget how "the pigster" showed us all a photo of his "black" urine in his toilet...musing how he should probably be seeing a doctor.  A few months later he was dead.  Now that's truth!

Don't know if it's my imagination, but I think the number of "Truth Bloggers" is dwindling.  Could be, natural attrition, like Vialls and Piglipstick, or perhaps the frustration at having, like the "Man of La Mancha",  Don Quixote, to tilt at the Mainstream Media windmill of lies every day.  Or it could be despair at watching the noose of NSA surveillance growing inexorably tighter on the Internet.

Whatever the reason, I believe now, more than ever--in this era of lies, truth blogging is essential.  Truth is a light that can be detected from within and act as a beacon, lighting the way towards groundswells of peace activism and humanism.  It can result in "sea changes" in human history.   I applaud those, like Morris Herman, Kenny's Sideshow, Dahboo77, Mike Rivero, Jeff Rense, Jon Rappoport and others who, each in their own way and style, continue to seek and spread the truth.

Why there is no Russian Intervention in Ukraine


 
Obama and Polish President addressing the Press
 June 3, 2014

"Must read" translation of Russian writer - political scientist Simon Uralov's analysis:

http://wakeupfromyourslumber.com/blog/tom-sullivan/why-there-no-russian-intervention-Ukraine

excerpt:

"...In recent months, the U.S. has slowed down the work of its printing press, reducing the "pump-priming" (this especially simplifies the formulation) from 85 to 55 billion dollars a month. Very many expect (e.g. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/04/27/us-usa-fed-idUSBREA3Q08920140427), that the machine will turn off completely by the end of this year. Again, in that same December. This is due to the fact that the dollar, though it is the main international currency, cannot be printed endlessly - it is impossible. According to various estimates, the United States has almost entirely used up the "resource strength" of the dollar, which allowed them to do the naughty with the (financial) machine. Moreover, the corollary and inevitable effect of such tricks is reducing rates on U.S. bonds, which, on the one hand, helps Washington to pay less for its debts, but, on the other hand, is actually choking the entire U.S. pension and insurance system that is built on the expectation of very different returns from their portfolios bonds. Roughly speaking, by the end of the year, the U.S. will have a choice between to blowing up their social system in order to keep on printing, or greatly reducing their appetites in order to preserve any chance of stability at home. Judging by the reduction in the amount of dollars being thrown into the system, Washington has decided that preventing an explosion is more important than its foreign policy ambitions.

Now to complete the puzzle finally, let’s make our predictions:

- America will try by all means to aggravate the crisis in Ukraine, in order to weaken Russia and put the whole European market under its sway before it needs to shut down its printing presses.
- The Kremlin will try to translate the crisis in Ukraine from the acute to the chronic phase - civil war plus sluggish negotiations amid the economic collapse of Ukraine. At the same time, the Kremlin will use the time to create favorable conditions for the transition to the sharp confrontation with the United States - from the work on untethering from the dollar with China, Iran, Qatar, creating the EEC etc.
- Complete end to the crisis in December 2014, possibly earlier if U.S. desists from trying to exacerbate the hostilities.
- And if it does not desist? - Then ... a big war ... a war for resources, because shale "boom" was an ordinary bubble.

On this subject in detail in the article by William Engdahl "Washington shale boom - bust". Original Washington's Shale Boom Going Bust http://journal-neo.org/2014/05/12/washington-s-shale-boom-going-bust/.

Hopefully, this crisis will, as the analyst proposes, de-escalate from critical to chronic.  Humanity is totally opposed to another war...particularly a nuclear war...but when did humanity prevail over the globalist warmongering bankster cabal?

Video - Putin Defends Position on Ukraine on CNBC

 

Plan B - Little Log Cabin in the Woods

I wanted to upload a YouTube video of Putin being interviewed on CNBC directly onto my blog.  When I tried to do so...Google says "Video not Found"...even when I paste the URL directly into the YouTube slot.  This is Google//Blogger/YouTube changing their formatting to make it more difficult for independent bloggers. 

Here's the link to the very informative interview with Putin re Ukraine:

Putin Defends Position on Ukraine on CNBC

When this trend (corralling humanity into a neatly defined and limited discourse) reaches a certain point  I will activate my "Plan B" and get off the technological grid.  It will in many ways be a relief.  I will chuck my laptop, mobile phone and Tablet (which I don't know how to use anyway). 

My prediction is that within the next ten years, the biggest trend will be that humans en masse will reject this Google box life.  There's so much out there...we don't NEED this crap.
