Frontline Poland: A Tale of the “Eastern Flank” : The West's Great War Against Russia, By Jafe Arnold

August 26, 2016
THE WEST’S GREAT WAR AGAINST RUSSIA The object is the defeat and destruction of Russia as an independent world power.
By Jafe Arnold
Unless change prevails, Poland is slated to disappear from the map once again. 
When Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz recently boasted that the NATO Summit in Warsaw would ensure that “The forces of our allies will finally be in place permanently on the eastern flank”, his formal ministerial title once again helped to show its true colors. That any defense minister would refer to his country as a mere “flank”, especially in an operative military context concerning armed forces other than its own, is a sad relinquishment of sovereignty even in the realm of semantics. Even in the Polish People’s Republic, which today’s Polish elites ceaselessly slander as part of their raison d’être, the country’s leaders never approached their country as an object, but as a conscious subject in international relations which could and ought to strive…

CP of Poland, Members of the Communist Party of Poland condemned for propagating communism 25 April 2016

CP of Poland, Members of the Communist Party of Poland condemned for propagating communism - APPEAL OF THE CP OF POLAND FOR INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY  Monday, 25 April 2016  Communist Party of Poland
Members of the Communist Party of Poland condemned for propagating communism APPEAL OF THE CP OF POLAND FOR INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY 
Four activists of the CPP were condemned on 31st of March 2016 by the Regional Court in Dąbrowa Górnicza for propagating communist ideology in the „Brzask” newspaper and on the party's website. They have been sentenced to 9 months of limited freedom with compulsory gratuitous social work and fines.
This provocative verdict was taken during the summary procedure without presence of all the sides, that is usually used in offences, when guilt of the accused is certain. The court did not even undertake standard judgement procedure and based its verdict only on a charge. The accused even had no possibility to defend themselves. The condemned had already made ob…

FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe: Laptop may contain thousands of messages sent to or from Mrs. Clinton’s private server, WSJ Oct. 30, 2016

Investigators believe it's likely the newly recovered aggregation of emails will include ones that were deleted from the Clinton server before the FBI took possession of it as part of their earlier investigation.

The surprise disclosure that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are taking a new look at Hillary Clinton’s email use lays bare, just days before the election, tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee. Investigators found 650,000 emails on a laptop used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, and underlying metadata suggests thousands of those messages could have been sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used wh…

Justin Trudeau continuing proud Liberal tradition of betraying Indigenous peoples BY RUSSELL DIABO | OCTOBER 28, 2016 Rabble.ca

Justin Trudeau continuing proud Liberal tradition of betraying Indigenous peoples BY RUSSELL DIABO | OCTOBER 28, 2016  Rabble.cahttp://bit.ly/2eKGXsv

In the late 1980s, because of my Indigenous policy background, I was convinced by a close friend to get involved in efforts to create an Aboriginal Peoples' Commission within the Liberal Party of Canada. The Liberal Party already had a Women's and Youth Commission so the model to change the Liberal Party's constitution was already there. I agreed to get involved because the Mulroney era was a disaster. In 1986, a secret federal Cabinet document was leaked called the "Buffalo Jump of the 1980s," which recommended -- like the 1969 White Paper on Indian Policy -- the termination of Indigenous rights through various policy measures including off-loading federal responsibilities for "status Indians" onto the provinces. In June 1990, during the Liberal Leadership Convention that elected Jean Chretien as leader, …

Robert Parry: The De Facto US/Al Qaeda Alliance October 29, 2016

The De Facto US/Al Qaeda Alliance Robert Parry, Consortium News, October 29, 2016
Exclusive: Buried deep inside Saturday’s New York Times was a grudging acknowledgement that the U.S.-armed “moderate” rebels in Syria are using their U.S. firepower to back an Al Qaeda offensive, reports Robert Parry.

A curious aspect of the Syrian conflict – a rebellion sponsored largely by the United States and its Gulf state allies – is the disappearance in much of the American mainstream news media of references to the prominent role played by Al Qaeda in seeking to overthrow the secular Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. There’s much said in the U.S. press about ISIS, the former “Al Qaeda in Iraq” which splintered off several years ago, but Al Qaeda’s central role in commanding Syria’s “moderate” rebels in Aleppo and elsewhere is the almost unspoken reality of the Syrian war. Even in the U.S. presidential deb…

DOJ's Loretta Lynch Tried To Squash Comey's Letter To Congress

by Tyler Durden Oct 29, 2016  http://bit.ly/2e8qlua

Last night a leaked memo was revealed, indicating FBI director James Comey's stated reasons for reopening the Clinton email probe upon discovering what now appear to be tens of thousands of Huma Abedin emails located on Anthony Weiner's notebook. Comey revealed two core reasons for the action: a sense of obligation to lawmakers and a concern that word of the new email discovery would leak to the media and raise questions of a coverup. What he did not reveal, and as has emerged overnight from a report by the New Yorker's Jane Mayer, is that Comey also acted in contravention to DOJ practices, and more importantly, acted contrary to the "preference" of DOJ head Loretta Lynch, whose infamous meeting with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac at the end of June will likely be reassessed in light of these latest revelations.
According to the New Yorker, "Comey’s decision to make public new evidence that may raise addi…

Riot police attack North Dakota pipeline protesters 28 October 2016

Riot police Attack North Dakota pipeline protesters 28 October 2016

Police clear Native American protest camp
Armed police in the US state of North Dakota have arrested 141 Native American protesters and environmental activists during a tense confrontation. They were among several hundred people who occupied private land in the path of a controversial new oil pipeline. Police fired non-lethal rounds and used pepper spray and sound cannon to push protesters back to their main encampment on public land. Skirmishes lasted overnight and continued until early Friday morning. By then, spent bean bag rounds and pepper spray canisters littered the ground as police towed away vehicles that the protesters had burned to create barricades in the road, including several military-grade Humvees.

"They used a sonic device and then also they used rubber bullets and we have shots of people who had rubber bullets right to the face. They maced elders right in the face. They dragged people out of sweat…

Photo by: Marcelo Camargo/ Agência Brasil - Creative Commons Eduardo Cunha, the formidable political power broker and former congressman who is considered to be the mastermind of the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, has been arrested on multiple corruption charges.  The question now is will he make a plea bargain in exchange for naming names?  If he does, it could lead to a political earthquake in this country of 200 million people, the fifth most populous nation in the world. All year long, the Brazilian public and millions beyond Brazil’s borders have watched the saga of the impeachment of President Rousseff.  The role of Cunha in this drama has been commented on for months, and many accounts of the events mentioned Cunha’s role in lining up support for the impeachment and also a possible motive of blocking investigation of…
