US drone whistleblowers have their bank accounts frozen

US drone whistleblowers have their bank accounts frozen

The U.S. Government failed to deter them through threats of criminal prosecution, and clumsy attempts to intimidate their families.

Now four former Air Force drone operators-turned-whistleblowers have had their credit cards and bank accounts frozen, according to human rights attorney Jesselyn Radack.

“My drone operators went public this week and now their credit cards and bank accounts are frozen,” Radack lamented on her Twitter feed (the spelling of her post has been conventionalized). This was done despite the fact that none of them has been charged with a criminal offense – but this is a trivial formality in the increasingly Sovietesque American National Security State.

Michael Haas, Brandon Bryant, Cian Westmoreland and Stephen Lewis, who served as drone operators in the US Air Force, have gone public with detailed accounts of the widespread corruption and institutionalized indifference to civilian casualties that characterize the program. Some of those disclosures were made in the recent documentary Drone; additional details have been provided in an open letter from the whistleblowers to President Obama, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, and CIA Director John Brennan.

How the West bankrolls Isis: Millions from governments and NGOs funding radical Islamic terror group

How the West bankrolls Isis: Millions from governments and NGOs funding radical Islamic terror group

Western governments are sending millions of pounds of aid to areas held by the radical Islamic group Isis in northern Syria.

The aid, which is paid for by the UK, European and US governments, consists of food, medicine and hygiene kits. It is brought into the country through the war-torn north from the two last remaining border posts open with Turkey in Reyhanli and Kilis.

Western groups such as Mercy Corps International, the Norwegian Refugee Council, World Vision, the International Rescue Committee and the United Nations World Food Programme provide supplies to hundreds of thousands of people every month across the self-proclaimed Islamic State.

This includes towns such as Raqqa, Manbij and Jarablus, which have witnessed beheadings, crucifixions and other draconian interpretations of sharia since Isis took over early this year.

“We have lots of direct shipments into Isis-held areas. Nearly all of our trucks go through the Turkish border post near Kilis. Sometimes they get stuck en route, and we have to wait two or three weeks for them to get there if they get held up by fighting or another opposition group which isn’t happy that we’re sending aid through an Isis checkpoint,” said a Western aid worker.

Millions of Americans could be banned from smoking in their own homes

Millions of Americans could be banned from smoking in their own homes

Millions of Americans could be banned from smoking in their own homes under controversial legislation proposed by the federal government.

The legislation would require homes, communal areas and administrative offices on public housing land to be smoke-free, the New York Times reports.

It is thought the changes would affect around a million homes.

It has argued the ban is necessary to protect residents from second-hand smoke, to lower building maintenance costs, and to reduce the risk of fires.

But the proposal has already met with resistance from some residents who believe it would be an infringement of their right to make personal choices about their lives.

One told the newspaper: “What I do in my apartment should be my problem long as I pay my rent.”

http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2015/10/16/corbett-report-update-hastert-reaches-plea-deal-to-cover-up-case/

n a move that should surprise absolutely no one, disgraced former House Speaker Dennis Hastert has reached a plea deal to keep the details of his case sealed for good. Given that prosecutors wanted the details under wraps and the Judge donated to Hastert’s campaigns on multiple occasions, was there any doubt this would happen?

 

So many parallels with what has been happening in the UK – blackmail, paedophilia, corruption and cover-ups

ISIS’ Toyota trucks were supplied by US State Department

ISIS’ Toyota trucks were supplied by US State Department

The US Treasury has recently opened an inquiry about the so-called “Islamic State’s” (ISIS/ISIL) use of large numbers of brand-new Toyota trucks.

The issue has arisen in the wake of Russia’s air operations over Syria and growing global suspicion that the US itself has played a key role in arming, funding, and intentionally perpetuating the terrorist army across Syria and Iraq.

ABC News in their article, “US Officials Ask How ISIS Got So Many Toyota Trucks,” reports:

U.S. counter-terror officials have asked Toyota, the world’s second largest auto maker, to help them determine how ISIS has managed to acquire the large number of Toyota pick-up trucks and SUVs seen prominently in the terror group’s propaganda videos in Iraq, Syria and Libya, ABC News has learned.

US is arming ISIS through ‘moderate’ opposition – former CIA officer

US is arming ISIS through ‘moderate’ opposition – former CIA officer

The US congress armed the Islamic State (ISIL) extremists by providing weapons to the “moderate” opposition, former CIA counter terrorism officer and Senate Foreign Relations Committee senior investigator John Kiriakou told Sputnik.

The FSA is an armed Syrian opposition faction, considered “moderate” by western countries, fighting the Syrian army loyal to President Bashar Assad since the beginning of the civil war in 2011. In 2014, the US Congress allocated $500 million to create FSA force of more than 5,000 men by the end of 2015.

“They [the FSA] didn’t help at all: supporting them only made matters worse. Most of the US arms that were sent to them only found their way into the hands of the Islamic State. Congress paid for the arming the Islamic State” Kiriakou said.

US vs Russia military showdown is INEVITABLE top MI6 chief warns

US vs Russia military showdown is INEVITABLE top MI6 chief warns

Former MI6 chief Sir John Sawers said there is a “real risk of a clash” as tensions boil between both superpowers amid Russia’s bombing crusade in Syria.

His warning comes as Defence Secretary Michael Fallon announced Britain is to station a “small number” of troops in the Baltic states in a further move to deter Russian aggression.

Mr Sawer said: “It is going to be quite hard to continue this campaign unless there is a degree of military co-ordination between the Russians and the West.

“You can’t really have two air forces fighting different campaigns aimed at different objectives over the same territory without the real risk of a clash.”

He said there was a “degree of co-existence” between the Assad regime and the terror group as part of the Syrian dictator’s strategy to “squeeze out” the moderate opposition.

Syria: US wants to topple Assad, not ISIS…

Syria: US wants to topple Assad, not ISIS…

It was only two years ago that western governments were looking for excuses to go in and invade Syria in order to topple the former eye doctor and now President, Bashar al-Assad.

Obama sought congress approval to go in and take out Syrian army forces but was rejected. Whilst the UK parliament voted 285 to 272 not to attack Syria as Prime Minister David Cameron had wanted to do.

With no luck in removing the Syrian government an offshoot of al Qaeda was created called ISIS and moved into Syria to fight against Assad. To which we now know that ISIS was created as a proxy army to do the bidding for where the west was unable to go in overtly.

US General Wesley Clark exposed the plan to attack 7 countries in 5 years in an effort to steal oil and resources, yet somehow this is not referenced in the mainstream media.

Today we are seeing the effects of this covert war spill into other areas with the current refugee crisis.

The mainstream media is failing to inform people of how these refugees where created (by foreign intervention mainly the US bombing their country and its infrastructure), and is even trying to pin the blame on Russia for the refugee crisis and claiming Assad is helping ISIS, when the exact opposite is true.
