9/11 author “commits suicide”

Santa Barbara Review: Phillip Marshall, a pilot who wrote a conspiracy theory book about 9/11 is dead after he allegedly shot his two teenage children and family dog before turning the gun on himself. Micalia Phillips, 14, and her 17-year-old brother Alex, were also found dead at the home inside the gated Forrest Meadows community.

The former airline pilot's controversial conspiracy book The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror was released last year. While he was writing it, Marshall believed that his life was in danger because of the allegations involved. He said: “The true reason the attack was successful is because of an inside military stand-down and a co-ordinated training operation that prepared the hijackers to fly heavy commercial airliners. We have dozens of FBI documents to prove that this flight training was conducted California, Florida and Arizona in the 18 months leading up to the attack.”

ANOTHER WACO

A similar but smaller scale incident to Waco’s mass carnage happened in Los Angeles. Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars dot com reports Police audio from the Christopher Dorner siege reveals a deliberate plan to burn down the cabin where Dorner was trapped, with one officer heard to say, “...burn this mother...” before police discussed their intention to “go ahead with the plan with the burners.”

“Burners” is police slang for tear gas canisters, which are known to cause fires. The audio was captured on police scanners as well as being picked up by a local news broadcast. More than seven agencies - federal, state and local - were involved in the final hours of the siege. The LAPD SWAT Team was airlifted in to carry out the final raid, with reports later confirming: “the SWAT team has the cabin surrounded.”

Watson of Infowars commented that the deliberate attempt to black-out media coverage of the event in the hours leading up to the cabin being intentionally set on fire by police, clearly suggests that authorities were keen to cover up that they were carrying out a pre-planned execution of Christopher Dorner. CNN have reported that Dorner was “pushed back inside” the cabin when he attempted to leave.

New Published Study Verifies Andrew Wakefield’s Research on Autism – Again

Health Impact News: Two landmark events – a government concession in the US Vaccine Court, and a groundbreaking scientific paper – confirm that physician, scientist, and Autism Media Channel  Director, Dr Andrew Wakefield, and the parents were right all along. In a recently published 13 December, 2012 vaccine court ruling, hundreds of thousands of dollars were awarded to Ryan Mojabi, whose parents described how “MMR vaccinations,” caused a “severe and debilitating injury to his brain, diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).”

Later the same month, the US government suffered a second major defeat when young Emily Moller from Houston won compensation following vaccine-related brain injury that, once again, involved MMR and resulted in autism. The cases follow similar successful petitions in the Italian and US courts in which the governments conceded, or the court ruled, that vaccines had caused brain injury. In turn, this injury led to an ASD diagnosis. MMR vaccine was the common denominator in these cases.

Setting up secret courts 'would cost more than paying off terror suspects'... according to Government's own report!

The Daily Mail was reporting that controversial plans for secret court hearings would cost the taxpayer millions more to implement than they will save. The revelation is contained in the Government’s own impact assessment.

Supporters of the proposals for a massive expansion in the number of cases that can be heard behind closed doors say they would save the taxpayer millions of pounds in compensation payments to those people – including suspected terrorists – whose cases cannot be heard in public. Kenneth Clarke, the minister in charge of the legislation, said more than £30 million of public money had been paid to terrorist suspects who claimed to have been wrongly detained or tortured.

Proof that shows global warming forecasts were wrong all along 

The Mail on Sunday reported on irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed. The ‘scientific basis’ for Britain reshaping its entire economy and spending billions in taxes and subsidies in order to cut emissions of greenhouse gases has been blown apart, they say. These moves have already added £100 a year to household energy bills.

Celebrity scientists such as Johnny Ball and David Bellamy, who put their careers on the line, by persisting for so many years along the lines of reason and common sense, have now been vindicated. Here's what the experts NOW say on 'climate change': Dr David Whitehouse, Global Warming Policy Foundation: “This changes everything. Global warming should no longer be the main determinant of economic or energy policy.'

Piers Forster, Climate Change Professor, Leeds University: “Global surface temperatures have not risen in 15 years. They make the high estimates unlikely.” Australian scientist David Archibald has shown a remarkable correlation between the sun’s activity and our climate over the past 300 years. No longer does there need to be a fudging of information as to why it was hotter during the Medieval Warm Period, before the Industrial Revolution, than it is now. This was something the infamous hockey stick graph could never explain, or take into account.

Diplomat was banned from talking about Dr David Kelly when giving evidence at Iraq Inquiry

The Daily Mail reported that a former British diplomat revealed he was ‘warned’, by the senior civil servant running the Iraq Inquiry, not to mention the late biological weapons expert Dr David Kelly when giving evidence. Carne Ross, the UK’s Iraq expert at the UN Security Council between 1998 and 2002, said he was told by the ‘very aggressive’ official that if he discussed Dr Kelly during his testimony, he would be silenced. It is understood the official who delivered the order was Margaret Aldred, secretary of the Iraq Inquiry chaired by Sir John Chilcot. The inquiry was set up in 2009 to examine why Tony Blair took Britain into war. 

Mr Ross was a close friend of Dr Kelly, a Ministry of Defence employee and world-renowned scientist who was found dead in an Oxfordshire wood in 2003. Dr Kelly had been named as the prime source of a BBC report accusing the Blair Government of lying to take Britain into the war.

Having worked with Dr Kelly for several years, Mr Ross intended to say a few words about him as a tribute, which he submitted in earlier written evidence. A 2003 public inquiry found Dr Kelly committed suicide. But successive governments have refused to hold a full coroner’s inquest, making him the only person in modern English legal history to be denied a proper inquest, and fuelling claims of a cover-up. 

Last month, a group of doctors wrote to the chief coroner of England and Wales, Peter Thornton QC, urging him to resume the inquest, which was halted in 2003. This was rejected.  The revelation that a witness was informed by an inquiry official what they could and could not discuss, before giving evidence, raises serious questions about its impartiality.

List contains 132 Names Who Pulled Cyprus Deposits Ahead Of "Confiscation Day"

Zero Hedge dot com was reporting that, with every passing day, it becomes clearer and clearer the Cyprus deposit confiscation "news" was the most unsurprising outcome for the nation's financial system, and was known by virtually everyone on the ground days and weeks in advance. First, it was disclosed that Russians had been pulling their  money, then it was suggested the President himself had made sure some €21 million of his family's money was parked safely in London, then there was a massive surge in Cyprus deposit outflows in February, and now the latest news is that a list of 132 companies and individuals has emerged who withdrew their Euro-denominated deposits in the two weeks from 1 March to 15 March, amongst which is Loutsios & Sons, who are alleged to have ties with the current Cypriot President.

The disclosure of the list, which shows that the outflow of deposits from local banks to other financial institutions outside Cyprus, massively raises suspicion that some had inside information about the decisions taken by the other 16 Eurozone countries in exchange for financing deficits of the economy.

Bomb squad drill was under way at the Boston marathon

Storyleak dot com reported that key Boston Marathon eyewitness and running participant, Alastair Stevenson, has confirmed that drills were taking place the morning of the Boston Marathon, complete with bomb squads and rooftop snipers.

Alastair has now voiced the entirety of what he saw as a participant and coach during the Marathon — something that he says he has never seen before despite participating in much larger races around the world.

He states in an online video: “At the start at the event, at the Athlete’s Village, there were people on the roof looking down onto the Village at the start. There were dogs with their handlers going around sniffing for explosives, and we were told on a loud announcement that we shouldn’t be concerned, and that it was just a drill. And maybe it was just a drill, but I’ve never seen anything like that — not at any marathon that I’ve ever been to.”

As we continue to be told, this is another massive coincidence, as drills were also being run on the mornings of 9/11 and 7/7, amongst many other “terrorist” incidents. Interestingly, the authorities are now denying that any such drills were taking place at the Boston Marathon.

Charles’ links to Savile

A top-level cover-up was ordered to hide close links between Prince Charles and Jimmy Savile. The full truth was uncovered following a seven-month battle by the Daily Star Sunday. A raft of documents was released last year showing former Prime Minister Thatcher’s dealings with Savile.  But Whitehall mandarins ordered key paragraphs to be blanked out to save people’s blushes. The Star challenged that ruling under Freedom Of Information laws and were initially turned down. It was only after a further appeal, when they said it was in the public interest to expose what Thatcher and her officials were discussing, that the information was finally released last week.

It shows Savile claimed Prince Charles had agreed to be a patron of one of his charities – and, crucially, last year someone in power had decided we shouldn’t know that fact, despite it being common knowledge that the Prince and weirdo Savile were pals. Savile was also allowed in and out of Charles’ residence St James’ Palace when he acted as a marriage guidance counsellor for Charles and Diana.

National Broadcaster Refuses to Cover Bilderberg Meeting

You would think that over a hundred of the world’s most influential power brokers meeting in secret would make for an interesting news story, but not according to Irish national broadcaster RTE, which has refused to send reporters to cover the 2013 Bilderberg Group conference. Asked by Infowars reader Billy Quilter if RTE intended to report on a confab involving, “the most wealthy, powerful and influential people in the world of politics, finance and business,” set to take place in Watford, England next week, the broadcaster responded by saying it didn’t think such an event was worthy of attention. “The world’s media doesn’t cover these meetings generally because we get no access, no interviews and are told nothing about the private discussions that go on inside. This group is one of many that happen every year as a talking shop, although as you rightly point out a high-level one. In RTE’s case, I don’t think it would be good value to stand outside the Grove for 3 days on that basis,” replied Kevin Bakhurst, RTE’s Managing Director of news and current affairs.

Sale Of UK Post Office Handed To Goldman Sachs

Britain was preparing to privatize Royal Mail, the country’s postal service, whose origins date to 1516 and the carrying of post for Henry VIII and the Tudor court. The government said that it had appointed Goldman Sachs and UBS as the lead banks to manage a planned initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange later this year. Barclays and Bank of America Merrill Lynch will also work on the sale. The planned offering could value Royal Mail at about £3 billion ($4.5 billion), according to some analysts.

NIGELLA-GATE

From the BBC News website: “Charles Saatchi has been cautioned for assault after images of him grasping his wife, Nigella Lawson, by the neck appeared in a newspaper. He said he voluntarily went to a police station to accept the caution as "it was better than the alternative of this hanging over all of us for months". Scotland Yard earlier confirmed that a 70-year-old man "accepted a caution for assault".

The main thing being produced by UK offshore Wind Farms – RUST

The Slog: Britain now has the two biggest wind farms in the world. But in a hot, largely windless spell such as the one we’re experiencing now, they will of course produce, um, diddly-squat. Just the sort of cutting-edge 21st century, constantly reliable electricity generation system we need….with the rest of it owned privately by French company EDF. Oh to be British in 2013. 

But very few people have cottoned on to the maintenance cost of these, the only type of ‘farm’ in the world that produces barely enough to keep body and soul together outside of hurricane conditions. They’re bad enough on land; but when the Mandarins ‘equip’ turbines for sea use by calculating structural requirement alone – making little allowance for saltwater erosion of the structure – things can quickly become critical. And this appears to be happening right now.

Fukushima now in state of emergency, leaking 300 tons of radioactive water daily

Natural News: Japan's nuclear watchdog has now declared the leak of radioactive water from Fukushima a "state of emergency."

Each day, 300 tons of radioactive water seeps into the ocean, and it's now clear that TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) has engaged in a two-and-a-half-year cover-up of immense magnitude. Just how out of control is the situation at Fukushima? TEPCO recently had to admit 10 of its workers were somehow -- see if you can figure this out -- sprayed with highly radioactive water while waiting for a bus. How exactly did highly radioactive water manage to find its way to a bus stop in the first place? TEPCO isn't sure. It's confusing with all those radiation alarms going off all the time. In order to concentrate, the company has found it's easier to just disable all the alarms and pretend nothing's wrong.

Syria's "chemical weapons" turn out to be fluoride

As a follow-up to this, Eurasia Review quote Seymour Hersh in a CNN interview on 9 December 2013: “It’s not hard to make sarin. You could mix it in the backyard. Two chemicals melded together.” The idea that the chemical warfare agent, sarin, is easy to make is central to Seymour Hersh’s claim that the 21st August attacks killing hundreds of Syrians could have been carried out by the rebel group, the Al Nusra Front. Hersh rests this claim on classified intelligence reports none of which he claims to have seen.  Hersh’s backyard sarin production appears to be concocted from fiction. The only non-state actor known to have engaged in large-scale sarin production was the Japanese cult, Aum Shinrikyo. They invested $30 million in this endeavour which included the creation of a production facility.

Washington’s Blog: The administration’s public case for chemical weapons use by the Syrian government is extremely weak, and former high-level intelligence officers say that publicly-available information proves that the Syrian government likely did not carry out the chemical weapons attacks.

The Obama administration claims that classified intelligence proves that it was the Assad government which carried out the attacks. But numerous congressional members who have seen the classified intelligence information say that it is no better than the public war brief … and doesn’t prove anything.

Kenyan Terror Attack Designed to Open Up New ‘War on Terror’ Front in East Africa

21st Century Wire: The latest epic terror siege and fire fight in Nairobi, Kenya, with scores shot dead, taken hostage, now has speculation as to who did it, and most importantly – who planned it. Western media is currently profiling various “terror masterminds” possibly behind this latest horrible attack. Indeed, it was senseless, and it was horrific. But who did it – and why, is where your focus should really be. The narrative is already set by US mainstream media: “Africa’s 9/11″, or “Africa’s 7/7″.

The unlucky Frank Lowy: The Westfield shopping centre in Nairobi, Kenya, is owned by Frank Lowy, a man who seems to have no luck with his properties. These global shopping centres which he owns seem to attract a suspiciously unusual amount of terrorist activity.

  • 11 September 2001: New York, the World Trade Center complex buildings 1, 2, and 7, along with the Westfield Hotel were ruined in the 9/11 attacks, and consequently about $5.4 billion went into the pockets of Lowy and Silverstein.
  • 21 September 2005: Westfield Mall in Perth, Australia, subject to a bomb threat.
  • 17 May 2006: Westfield in Woden, Australia, subject to a bomb threat.
  • 21 July 2007: The Court house adjacent Westfield Centre, Derby, England, subject to a bomb threat, which caused the evacuation of these Westfield premises.
  • 1 March 2008: Westfield Old Orchard Mall, Skokie, Illinois, subject to a bomb threat.
  • 20 April 2009: Westfield Hotel Annapolis, subject to a bomb threat.
  • 20 September 2008: Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, was bombed.
  • 17 July 2009: Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, was bombed.

Tyler Hicks, the photographer, is also unlucky in that he ALWAYS just happens to be around to photograph events at these "attacks"...

OCTOBER

Woolwich rolls on

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett and her two children were humiliated when they turned up at the Pride of Britain rewards only to be told to naff off. The reason given for her refused entry makes little sense. It seems that the ‘Angels of Woolwich’ section of the awards ceremony was withdrawn at the last minute following a reminder from the Attorney General’s office (AGO) that:  “under the Contempt of Court Act 1981, nothing could be broadcast or published which interferes with the administration of justice, including background or allegations relating to the alleged murder in Woolwich.” Now, when you think of what has already been published in the mainstream about Kennett and the Donnellys, the AGO’s reminder would seem somewhat superfluous, don’t cha think? And why turn her away, even if she wasn’t allowed to take part… Very strange.

BBC ‘suspends Panorama probe into how Comic Relief uses its funds’ after claims it invests donations in tobacco and arms trade

The Mirror: A Panorama probe into how Comic Relief uses its donations has been postponed by the BBC, it emerged today. The Panorama show is understood to examine how Comic Relief chiefs invested £150million – some in tobacco firms and an arms giant – for up to eight years before giving it to charity. The six-month probe for Panorama by independent TV company Matchlight also highlights how staff costs have doubled. It is also thought a huge loss on a failed venture selling Gordon Ramsay-branded sauces has come in for scrutiny.

The Panorama probe also alleges that Comic Relief staffing costs have doubled since 2008, which would also be funded by the public. The Comic Relief probe was due to air later this month but the screening has been cancelled by BBC executives. Comic Relief says it has no control over where its money is invested.

Update: The edition was finally screened this week. The focus was not specifically on Comic Relief, although it was the grand finale. Save The Children were exposed for their links with Glaxo Smith Kline, known as one of their ‘partners’, which saw them pushing malaria vaccines for the third world. This being the same GSK that was fined $3 Billion for pushing adult-antidepressants on to teenagers.

Charities were shown to not wish to criticise the energy industry, due to the real and potential donations and ‘partnerships’ that might be lost by doing so.

Amnesty International were shown to have made a huge LOSS in staging The Secret Policeman’s Ball in New York in 2012, in the region of $750,000.

And so to Comic Relief. They have to invest to make enough in dividends to pay their £17 million running costs per annum, as they want to ensure every penny donated goes to the good causes, something they stress many times during broadcasts. By investing in non-ethical funds they find they have indirectly got shares in Tobacco, Alcohol and Defence industries. They defend this by saying most charities do this, and that ethical funds don’t have such a good rate of return. Panorama proved that, in fact, ethical funds can perform just as well, if not better in some cases. Comic Relief changed the way they issued their reports after 2009, hiding any links to Tobacco, Alcohol and Defence – no transparency. At the end of the programme, they admitted they were still investing in funds with such connections, but were looking to review this.

Large charities have admitted they are not really interested in the small donations from the local church fetes any more – they want the big corporate ‘partners’ and their huge donations.

Let us not forget that Common Purpose is a charity.

Chemtrails ‘Out of the Closet’: Mainstream Media Disclose the Revelation of the Method

21st Century Wire: After a decade of denial and concealment of a highly destructive and dangerous experimental practice on unsuspecting humans, this year in 2013, the mainstream media’s information super-sewer pipe has begun to unveil the existence of the garbage dump we see when we look above in our once blue skies.

It’s worth revisiting, and perhaps sharing the Daily Mail report which speaks as if what they are describing could happen, when in fact, it’s already happening – on a daily basis all over the UK. They are banking on the fact that most people do not look up at the sky, or ask questions about the steady increase in endless tic-tack-toe designed over their heads. By announcing it this year, they are simply dropping a media seed, building the back story.

UK £16.2 billion nuclear plant contingent on gas price rise by 127% in decade

Britain’s first nuclear plant in 20 years is a bet energy prices will rise. Experts say the new Hinkley Point facility will be "the most expensive power station in the world" and if the bet fails, the deal will prove "economically insane".

“The Government is taking a massive bet that fossil fuel prices will be extremely high in the future,” the Telegraph quotes Peter Atherton and Mulu Sun, who analysed the finances of British energy companies for stockbroker Liberum Capital.

The analysts estimate the minimum energy price would need to stand above £121 per megawatt hour within ten years, which means the wholesale price of gas would have to go up by about 127 percent over that period.  Wholesale prices were about £60 last year, according to the energy watchdog Ofgem.

This is the equivalent to an oil price of well above $200 a barrel, compared with about $110 this week, the Telegraph reports. “We are frankly staggered that the Government thinks it is appropriate to take such a bet and underwrite the economics of this power station. We are flabbergasted that it has committed future generations of consumers to the costs that will flow from this deal,” the Liberum Capital analysts say.

The $26 billion (£16 billion) price tag of the two reactors would be enough to build gas-fired power stations with output eight times higher, Liberum calculated. “For the cost of £16bn for the 3,200MW to be built at Hinkley, the UK could build 27,000MW of new gas-fired power stations, solving the 'energy crunch’ for a generation.”

Atos, G4S paid no corporation tax last year despite carrying out £2billion of taxpayer-funded work

The Telegraph: Two of the country’s biggest private contractors paid no corporation tax in Britain last year, despite carrying out billions of pounds of taxpayer funded work for the Government, an official audit has found. A report by the National Audit Office, published today, disclosed for the first time how much Government work is now outsourced to the private sector.

It found that the four biggest suppliers - Atos, Capita, G4S and Serco - carried out £6.6billion-worth of work for the public sector and central Government last year. Yet two of them – Atos and G4S which carried out £2billion-worth for work for the Government and public sector – paid no corporation tax at all in the UK in 2012. Capita paid between £50million and £56million, while Serco paid £25million in tax. G4S sources said that the company did not pay any corporation tax last year because it had carried one-off losses over from the previous year. Overall it said it paid around £400million in PAYE-related taxes.

A spokesman for Atos, which is carrying out fit for work tests on sick and disabled benefits claimants, said: “We don’t undertake any aggressive tax planning and everything booked in the UK is also billed here which is why HM Revenue and Customs has classified us as low risk. However, due to significant investment in the UK to maintain our business here as well as pension contributions, we did not make enough profit last year to qualify for Corporation Tax.”

Philippines Typhoon linked to ‘Man-Made’ Microwave Pulses

21st Century Wire: On the Weather Modification Association’s own website, they admit such programs have existed for over 60 years in conjunction with other agencies: “The Weather Modification Association (WMA) was organized in 1950 to cultivate a better understanding of weather modification techniques, impacts, and expectations among program sponsors, program operators, and the scientific community, and to promote ethical professional conduct and a free exchange of information.”

Government installations are already conducting ‘atmospheric heating experiments’ around the globe, including operational centres and radar observation stations in the immediate vicinity of what has been dubbed this week as “the world’s largest ever storm”.

Weather-watcher, Dutchsine, discovered data relating to microwave pulse activity linked to this most recent Typhoon Haiyan (named “Typhoon Yolanda” in the Philippines) event in South East Asia. He also suggests that the storm system known “Zoraida” is also a man-made microwave directed storm.

Destroying your own brand values

“Secret of the Discount Stores”, an edition of Dispatches which was shown on Channel 4, was nothing short of jaw-dropping. Own brands effectively counterfeiting their own goods (i.e., making last year's range once again, with substandard materials and selling in their own outlet stores, as well as to the likes of TK Maxx). Breaking the golden rule of undermining your own brand values and standings.

Lucy Mangan, The Guardian on Panorama: Power Failure: How can we encourage-slash-force people to reduce their energy consumption? Threaten a fracking operation in every back garden? De-complicate the Green Deal mess and see if the present 1% uptake rises? Burn cabinet ministers for fuel, or EU regulations that require environmental taxes to be slapped on top of everything else? Shall we warm the electorate with cuts and torch our children's futures, or could we dare to make a tiny inroad or two into the £1bn profit the main energy companies made last year to fund a third way?
