WHY I REJECT WESTERN COURTS AND JUSTICE, by Andre Vltchek

There is a small courthouse from the ‘British era’, standing right in the center of Hong Kong. It is neat, well-built, remarkably organized and some would even say – elegant.

Earlier this year I visited there with an Afghan-British lawyer, who had been touring East Asia for several months. Hong Kong was her last destination; afterwards she was planning to return home to London. The Orient clearly confused and overwhelmed her, and no matter how ‘anti-imperialist’ she tried to look, most of her references were clearly going back to the adoptive homeland – the United Kingdom.

“It looks like England,” she exclaimed when standing in the middle of Hong Kong. There was clearly excitement and nostalgia in her voice.

To cheer her up even more, I took her to the courthouse. My good intentions backfired: as we were leaving, she uttered words that I expected but also feared for quite some time:

“You know, there are actually many good things that can be said about the British legal system.”

I thought about that short episode in Hong Kong now, as I drove all around her devastated country of childhood, Afghanistan. As always, I worked without protection, with no bulletproof vests, armored vehicles or military escorts, just with my Afghan driver who doubled as my interpreter and also as my friend. It was Ramadan and to let him rest, I periodically got behind the wheel. We were facing countless detentions, arrests and interrogations by police, military and who knows what security forces, but we were moving forward, always forward, despite all obstacles.

From that great distance, from the heights of the mountains of Afghanistan, the courthouse in Hong Kong kept falling into proportion and meaningful perspective.

Conversation: THE WEST SPREADING NEW WAVE OF FEEL-GOOD MOVIES AND FALSE HOPES, by Andre Vltchek

Watch blockbuster movies from the “south” and chances are you will start to believe that the world is not really such a desperate place. Perhaps you might even get convinced that under the present imperialist and turbo-capitalist global arrangement things can always get better. If you live in a gutter somewhere in Sub-Continent or Africa, you could simply try hard, you could “believe in yourself and love yourself”, you could “listen to your instincts”, and everything may eventually fall into the right places. You could get acknowledged, rewarded and even catapulted from your misery into some plush pastures that are covering the tall green hills of success.

Think twice! Or… don’t think at all – just bury your head in the sand.

There were always books written and films produced just in order to please the Western funding agencies and propaganda machine. I described the process, colorfully, in my recent political/revolutionary novel “Aurora”.

Just think about Kite Runner written by an Afghan-American writer Khaled Hosseini, or about all those bestsellers by Salman Rushdie or Elif Shafak, books about India or Turkey, but intended almost exclusively for a Western audience, and often despised in their native countries.

The works of Rushdie and Shafak can at least qualify as “literature”. But now both the Western markets and mainstream media are demanding more and more of ‘feel good’ rubbish books and movies from poor countries, more and more of those simple, picturesque and ‘positive’ stories that are actually confusing and give false hopes to the local population of many poor countries.

Do you still remember Slumdog Millionaire? How realistic a scenario was that? First of all, it was not even an Indian film; it was a 2008 British movie, directed by Danny Boyle, who also had directed Trainspotting. It took place in the Juhu slum of Mumbai.

In 2011, I filmed in the same Mumbai slum where the movie was produced. I asked many, how likely was such a ‘success scenario’ in that filthy and hopeless neighborhood? The dwellers of the Juhu slum just dismissed the entire charade with derogatory gestures; why even waste precious words?

Xi’s wild geese chase the Silk Road gold, by Pepe Escobar

Source: Asia Times

President Xi Jinping invokes Ming dynasty heroes, geopolitical development strategies and wild Asian geese analogies to portray China’s New Silk Roads initiative as the flagship of a trade-focussed new world order.

President Xi Jinping used the two-day New Silk Road international forum in Beijing to establish China as the flagship of a new, benign trade-focussed world order. This was, said Xi, a “new model of win-win and cooperation” that will prevail over gunboat diplomacy.

At the start of the conference, China’s state broadcaster Xinhua made clear that the initiative — officially first called One Belt, One Road (OBOR) and now Belt and Road (BRI) — was not “neocolonialism by stealth.”

“China needs no puppet states,” said Xinhua, while essentially repeating what Xi delivered in his keynote delivery.

“China is willing to share its development experience with the rest of the world” said Xi, “but we will not intervene in other nations’ internal affairs, export our social system and development model, nor force others to accept them.”

The Forum communiqué – a summary of the main points developed in Xi’s keynote speech – reported that the nations represented in Beijing had pledged to promote “practical cooperation on roads, railways, ports, maritime and inland water transport, aviation, energy pipeline, electricity and telecommunications”.

Big business too was represented and, reportedly, is enthusiastic.

Alibaba’s Jack Ma, so committed to advancing an electronic World Trade Platform, spoke to Chinese media at the Forum and hailed BRI’s “inclusion of young people, women, smaller enterprises and developing countries.”

On the final day of the forum, Beijing even engineered a sort of New Silk Road United Nations, in the form of a Leaders Roundtable, with the microphones open equally to all. The event was a nifty illustration of how Xi wants the world to see this initiative.

“The primary intention and the highest goal of the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ is to allow each member to jointly address global economic challenges, find new growth opportunities and drivers, achieve a win-win situation and keep moving toward a community with joint destiny,” said Xi.

Xi went onto offer exhortations for Ming dynasty navigation master Admiral Zheng He – as a “friendly emissary” – before delivering a metaphor for the new world trade order that he had just outlined.

“Wild swan geese,” he said of the large, rare and wild bird found in Asia but not in Europe, “are able to fly far and safely through winds and storms because they move in flocks and help each other as a team.”

Yahwism ? The death cult at the heart of the Judeosphere and the Global Terror Trade by Paul Matthews

Jewish schools in UK tighten security amid terror attacks in Paris

Last September the Times of Israel announced that Greece, India, Russia, Cyprus, China and Honduras were upgrading economic and defence ties with Israel as a joint Hudson Institute-Haifa University Report speculated about what a new, extended ‘maritime’ rôle for the Israeli Navy might entail, as the USA disengages from the region (sic). We savour daily the joys of Pax Judaica in France where «nation» and «sovereignty» are dirty words among journalists whose success is gauged by their enthrallment with the ‘Jewish bubble experience’.

Our media pundits trumpet thus the merits of life in a ‘Post-Holocaust Community’ and we learn that – tasked with suppressing ‘fake news’ and with smoothing over strained ties to the ‘official news outlets’ – Facebook has hired a former NBC correspondent and CNN anchor turned education advocate. Her name : Campbell Brown.

She converted to Judaism to marry Daniel Samuel ‘Dan’ Senor, author of Start-up Nation : The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle. One-time advisor on foreign policy to former US president GW Bush, he was likewise chief spokesman and spin doctor emerite to Lewis Paul Bremer III of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. A right hand man of Republican Mitt Romney – a US exceptionalism enthusiast – this archetypal radical zionist is blessed with being both a founding partner of Rosemont Capital and a partisan of a military strike against Iran.

With their favourite websites now monitored by Décodex, a ‘NATO service‘ technically bankrolled by Google and Facebook – to fight alleged Russian influence in the West – French electors and internauts are gratified to learn that such founts of ‘editorial discernment’ along with Five Eyes spooks, are sifting diligently through the contents of their correspondance and all that courses through the conduits of this ‘social networking service’.

The following analysis was mostly in the bag after events at Orly and in Westminster and before brinkmanship climaxed again with the unprovoked attacks on the Sha’irat airfield in Syria and the Saint Petersburg Metro.

A recent Saker article pinpoints the current fragility of Russia whose independence hinges essentially upon Vladimir Putin’s personal vigilance and charisma, as well as upon the quasi-monarchical rôle he and his party ‘United Russia’ play in fending off a hostile environment orchestrated by the Atlanticists and their proxies who operate both outside the Russian Federation and within its national territory as a Fifth Column. As the latest terrorist violence ratchets up the pressure exerted to silence opposition to the oligarchy, readers should be made aware of the basis of a profound antipathy towards Gentile nations now threatening world peace and security.

Europe is sick – in mind and body. Hardly had the dead and injured been extracted  from the wrecked carriage underneath the former capital of Imperial Russia, before BBC Moscow correspondent Sarah Rainsford was

given to speculating in her coverage that the explosion might be a plot to distract from anti-corruption protests facing the Russian government. Western journalists repeating unfounded rumours from CIA sponsored social media is a feature of NATO’s psyops warfare manual. So, while famous landmarks the world over were lit up in response to the attacks on Paris, London or Berlin, nobody’s surprised that gestures of public sympathy or solidarity with Russia or Syria are singularly lacking in the capitals of most of our so-called ‘democracies’.

Illuminated with the colours of the Russian flag, Tel Aviv’s city hall was the exception. But then Israel is home to many Russian expatriate Jews and this piece of window dressing cannot fool us as to who or what lies behind the task of fostering a global climate of mass fear. Hence the urgent need to identify unequivocally the ideology behind the Empire of Terror. This signifies joining the dots between individuals and structures performing acts of ‘Muslim’ extremism and the fundamentalist financial doctrines of the Anglo-Zionists and their agents on the Arabian peninsula who provide the wherewithal to keep the militaro-industrial complex on a war footing.

Franco-Syrien analyst Dr Ayssar Middani, a former Syrian MP Dr Maria Saadeh, a French barrister Damien Viguier and Hussam Eddin Ala, Syria’s Permanent Representative at the UN in Geneva, testify to the extent to which efforts to destroy the national identity and material and cultural heritage of Syria progress and how the heroism of the Syrian people remains the principle obstacle to the regional and global hegemony advocated by Britain and Israel and their partners France, USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Such testimony indicates the serious knock-on effects of these criminal policies for other regions, notably Europe, Russia and China, while  the Golan Area of Separation is used to facilitate the movement of terrorists, their weapons and equipment, as flagrant Israeli attacks against Syrian territory and military sites underscore the strategic alliance between the Israeli régime on one hand and the likes of Jabhat al-Nusra and other murderous organizations on the other.

Seven Laws of Noah :  whose enforcement may provide you with a loophole : Brit milah [circumcision]

This land is my land, Your land is my land

«At Mount Sinai, G-d charged the Children of Israel to serve as His “Light unto the nations” by bringing all of humanity to a recognition of their Creator and adherence to His laws. For most of Jewish history, however, circumstance did not permit our people to spread these principles, other than by indirect means. When the Lubavitcher Rebbe began speaking about publicizing them as a preparation for a new era, he was reviving an almost lost tradition». Universal Morality : The Seven Noahide Laws

Conversation: Henry Kissinger’s Food Occupation Of Iraq Continues To Destroy The Fertile Crescent

Published on Mar 30, 2017

Today, Iraq is plagued by violence and extreme poverty. But this wasn’t always the case.

The country in the Fertile Crescent has a long and rich agricultural history that has been decimated since the 2003 U.S. invasion. Once the country’s invaluable seed bank was destroyed and its institutions turned to dust, it set the stage for foreign agribusiness giants to swoop in and forever change the face of Iraqi agriculture.

Join Mnar Muhawesh for this segment of ‘Behind the Headline’ as she speaks to Iraqi agriculture expert Dr. Nakd Altameemi. They explore the devastating tolls that war, sanctions and Western corporations have had on Iraq’s once-bustling agriculture sector.

Conversation: An Open Letter to President Trump , by Tom Duggan

Dear President Trump,

While walking through the city of Damascus at around 11.36 today a missile went over my head , passed a school yard with close to 200 children from ages 6-10 and exploded down the street ,luckily none of the children were hurt ,but to witness 200 children in shock and terror is not a pleasant sight ,children shaking some crying, running in all directions some just frozen to the spot , now I know you have only been in office for a meagre 100 days ,and have been ineffective in both domestic and foreign policy , the only action you have done is to bomb Syria in support of your so called moderate rebels , well these so called moderate rebels ,target populated areas at the time when children are playing , or during rush hour for maximum damage , listen to children scream in fear is not a good thing , I wonder what your reaction would have been if the missile had hit the school playground ?

But then you would not know as MSM would not report it ,please do what you said during your election campaign and put America first, and stop supporting terrorism, build a better America and never bomb a sovereign state ,to improve your popularity among the American public ,or listen to lies from advisors ,you should change the advisors you have, as sooner or later they will make you look more foolish than you are at this moment.

One very angry English man.

Yours,

Tom Duggan
