This is smoking gun evidence of Western mercenaries in Mariupol, the strategic port city in Ukraine that was recently bombed. The soldier, running with the crowd from the attack, clearly speaks fluent English with an American accent. He is wearing fatigues known to be worn by American and Western mercenaries!
VIDEO — #NewsIsNotTerror: RT hosts speak out on US state media chief equating channel with ISIS & Boko Haram
Jan 24, 2015
The new head of America’s state-funded media is facing a wave of criticism after remarks in which he equated RT with jihadists and terrorists. Even the State Department has attempted to distance itself. And of course, the hosts of RT’s various programmes have had their say.

A group of activists in Texas stirred controversy this week, by 3D printing a gun right out front of the Texas State Capitol building in Austin. The unique live protest was organized by the group Come And Take It Texas, or CATI, and featured a CNC device called “Ghost Gunner” which uses 3D printed parts and is capable of manufacturing a gun.
“Anybody can purchase one of these to print firearms in their own homes,” Murdoch Pizgatti, president of CATI said on NBC News.
There has been a heated debate about 3D printing technology in the past few years, as 3D print gun projects like Wikiweapon have begun to grow in popularity and gather press recognition. Wikiweapon was a project that intended to share open-source blueprints for 3D printed guns, allowing anyone with the right equipment to manufacture a firearm from their home.
The Ghost Gunner is made by Defense Distributed, the parent company of the Wikiweapon project, and set up by founder Cody Wilson. The company is fittingly based in Austin, Texas, where the protest took place this week.

As 2015 begins, high-profile cases involving accusations of pedophilia in the highest ranks of political power are making headlines on both sides of the Atlantic.
MPs Caught in Pedophile Network
The first case involves the exposure of five VIP pedophile rings operating in Britain in the 1970s and 80s that have been researched in a dossier compiled by John Mann, an MP for Bassetlaw in the Midlands, which was then submitted to the London Metropolitan Police for further investigation. These five rings all included at least one current or former member of parliament, with a total of 24 politicians having been identified in Mann’s dossier. Six of those 24 are currently serving members of the UK government, including three MPs and three members of the House of Lords. As an MP himself, Mann enjoys parliamentary privilege to name the accused politicians in the House of Commons but has said he will not do so because he believes the accusations should be investigated by police first.
The Met are already investigating claims made by an alleged victim of the network that a Conservative MP strangled a boy to death during one of the ring’s sex parties, and that he personally witnessed two other boys murdered by the gang, including one who was run over in broad daylight. Mann has also indicated that he believes two men may have been murdered as part of a cover-up of the network’s activities.
One of the hurdles in investigating the claims is the Official Secrets Act, which prevents the disclosure of state secrets and “sensitive” information. “It is clear there are a lot of people who could provide a lot of information, potentially vital information, to support ongoing criminal investigations,” Mann said regarding the investigation. “But they are not doing so because of the Official Secrets Act. They are fearful of not only breaking the law but the potential effect on their pension. This is absolutely crucial if we are to get some of these ex-officers coming forward and to get prosecutions of some of the former MPs.” He has asked Home Secretary Theresa May to lift the restrictions, allowing former officials to speak up about what they know about the case, but so far there is no indication that this has been done.
Epstein Accuser Names Names
Meanwhile in the United States a similarly shocking set of allegations are emerging from a Florida court case surrounding Jeffrey Epstein, the prominent American financier and billionaire who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. In the years since his conviction, dozens of women have come forward to accuse him of abuse, and he has made 17 out-of-court settlements in various civil cases arising from these accusations. There is now an ongoing federal civil suit in Florida in which two women are alleging violations of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act in the remarkable plea deal that saw Epstein emerge from the scandal with a single count of solicitation of underage prostitution and a 13-month prison sentence.
Late last month, Virginia Roberts made headlines by submitting a motion to be added to the legal action in Florida. Those documents allege that Roberts was one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves and names both Prince Andrew, Duke of York and fifth in line for the British crown, and Alan Dershowitz, a well-known lawyer and author, as men with whom she was forced to have sex while underage. Buckingham Palace has emphatically denied the claims, and Dershowitz threatened to sue Roberts’ lawyers over the allegations but was instead counter-sued for defamation.
The scandal threatens to re-focus attention on the Epstein case, which raises many important questions about the billionaire’s connections with the rich and powerful. It has since been revealed that Epstein had 21 different phone numbers for contacting his friend Bill Clinton, who, court records allege, “frequently flew” on Epstein’s private jet between 2002 and 2005. The American tabloid press is now reporting that the new claims have created problems for Clinton’s marriage, with Hillary allegedly visibly angry at Bill at a recent public appearance.
Allegations of pedophilia networks amongst the political and entertainment “elite” are of course nothing new. In recent years Britain has been rocked by revelations of repeated, serial sexual abuse of children by popular children’s television entertainers Jimmy Savile and Rolf Harris. These scandals have raised questions about institutional support for these activities at a number of levels, including the BBC, the political classes and even royal participation in the enabling and cover-up of the abuse.
Likewise in America, allegations of political pedophile rings date back decades, with the most notorious being the Franklin scandal in which Lawrence E. King Jr. was accused of running an elite child prostitution ring for Nebraska Republican Party members and high-ranking U.S. politicians. The story involves accusations that link the ring to CIA drug dealing, murder and cover up, including accusations of ritual abuse in the Bohemian Grove. The investigation was championed by former State Senator John De Camp and eventually brought before a grand jury in Douglas County but was eventually thrown out as a “carefully crafted hoax” and two of the alleged victims were themselves convicted of perjury after two other witnesses recanted their supporting testimony. Still, questions still surround the cover up of the case as documented in suppressed documentaries like Conspiracy of Silence.
MUST LISTEN — Remedy Roundtable 05 – Prof. Jay Courtney Fikes, Lydia & Royce White Calf – “The Lakota, Naropa Institute, and Wounded Knee – From Gen. Custer to Carlos Castaneda” – #220 | Gnostic Media
Dec 19, 2014
Episode 220 is Remedy Roundtable #05 with Prof. Jay Courtney Fikes, Lydia and Royce White Calf, titled: “The Lakota, Naropa Institute, and Wounded Knee – From Gen. Custer to Carlos Castaneda”
This is a POWERFUL episode where one of the last pure bred Lakota Native Americans, Royce White Calf, who was at Wounded Knee and lived to tell about it, comes on to tell all. His wife Lydia joins us along with Prof. Jay Courtney Fikes – who’s returning for his 4th time.
In this episode we expose more on Native Revivalism, the FBI and CIA attacks on the Lakota nation – including their promotion of the New Age and Neo-Shamanism – and the likes of Carlos Castaneda, and the planned genocide against the only native American nation to seize the US flag – not once, but 3 times.
And this episode is being released on Friday, December 19, 2014. It was recorded on December 17.
Royce White Calf is a Lakota from the Oglala Lakota Nation. He is known for leading in the sobriety movement on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the late 70’s, and his work for the youth in the 1980’s which led Tom Brokaw to give him the Outstanding Young Man of America Award on national television in 1982. He became an active member of the American Indian Movement by 13 years old, during the Wounded Knee Occupation of 1973, and has led in his People’s struggle ever since. He has appeared on CNN and FOX News – featured in an interview regarding Camp Justice and the Reservations mass killings of 1999, which forced President Bill Clinton to come to the Reservation in an attempt to quell another Resistance Movement. Royce has also taken a vehement stand with Russell Means against Columbus Day in Denver Colorado. He has appeared throughout the years on other media coverage, local and national, including the New York Times, The Denver Post, Boulder Daily Camera, The Rapid City Journal, Indian Country Today, and radio both national and internet. In 1995, he was the youngest sitting member of The Great Sioux Nations Treaty Council, in its history.
Lydia White Calf is a non- Indian form Greenwich, Connecticut. By 21, she was a photojournalist based out of Singapore, and stringing for The South China Seas Morning Post, The Bangkok Post, The Jakarta Post, and The New York Times. She also worked for tens of magazines internationally, including Harper’s in Australia, and other magazines throughout the Asian region. She has been published in The London Times, and later moving back to this country, she worked for The Miami Herald and The Palm Beach Daily News. In 1991 she won Best Photo Essay from The Florida Magazine Association for her work in Tibet. A project regarding Fetal Alcohol Syndrome took her to The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1993, where she met Royce White Calf.
Together, they directed a film project for Viacom entitled “The New Indian Wars”, in 1993. They married in 1994, and moved to Boulder Colorado where Lydia wanted to pursue a Masters Degree in Jungian Psychology. While in the BA Program at The Naropa Institute (now The Naropa University), they stood up against administration-wide fraud and became the whistle blowers regarding Cultural Appropriation and Genocide to The Lakota People on Pine Ridge, by Naropa – while also calling attention to the broader widespread issue of Cultural Genocide to Indigenous Peoples of The Western Hemisphere. For this Russell Means also became their Spokesperson. They were asked to be Jurors in 1998 for the Northwest Tribunal On First Nation’s Genocide in Residential Schools in Canada, for which ultimately Dennis Banks came to their assistance for a national statement in 2012. Both issues were heard on the Floor of the United Nations Subcommittee on Human Rights, presented by Alaskan Elder and expert on International Law, Rudy James (of the Thlingit Nation). They have appeared jointly on radio for 15 years, including Native America Calling, and in local and national press. They continue to fight for Indigenous Peoples’ rights and for The Lakota Nation. They currently reside in the mountains above Boulder with their two sons – both Federally Enrolled members of The Oglala Sioux Tribe, in Nederland Colorado.

The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control. Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance – these are the terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone becomes a terror suspect….
The following concept trailer has amassed nearly one million views since its YouTube debut in 2012:
In a stomach-churning turn of events, the filmwriter/producer David Crowley, his 28-year-old wife Komel, and young daughter, Rani, were found dead in their Apple Valley, MN home – after not being seen or heard from since before Christmas.
Most of the information about the discovery centers on neighbor Collin Prochnow who saw packages piling up and decided to check up and ring the door bell, when he glanced in the window and saw all three Crowleys on the floor, that “just didn’t look human.” He had actually told his wife there were dummies [mannequins] on the floor along with a black handgun, before calling police. But the police reported finding people who were “obviously dead.”
How can an entire family, including a five-year-old daughter go unnoticed for so long? All reports indicate that their bodies had been on the living room floor since before Christmas. The neighbor figures that it happened before Christmas, as packages were piling up at the Crowley home and there was no activity stemming from the home since before then. Reportedly, family and at least one colleague tried unsuccessfully to reach them before Christmas. The actual cause or time of death has not been released. By Sunday, the previously crowded mailbox and front stoop were bare.
Mainstream media have labeled it an apparent “murder-suicide” but – hear for yourself what police found when they arrived on January 17th….
Audio of the police communication is public and at around 2:35 mentions that the officers found the rear sliding door unlocked, and slightly ajar.
Notably, there is no suicide note. Details linking the event to a murder-suicide have not been released except to call it “apparent.” A black handgun on the floor next to the family is, so far, where the investigative details end. In other words, definitive information of what happened to the Crowleys is either unknown or unreleased.

Do you know what an “extremist” is? In the wake of the horrible terror attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in France, Barack Obama is speaking very boldly about the need to win the war against “extremists”, and he has announced plans to host a major global summit on “extremism” next month. And on the surface that sounds great. But precisely how are we supposed to determine whether someone is an “extremist” or not? What criteria should we use?
As you will see below, your definition of an “extremist” may be far, far different from the definition that Barack Obama is using. When you do a Google search, you will find that an “extremist” is defined as “a person who holds extreme or fanatical political or religious views, especially one who resorts to or advocates extreme action.” According to Wikipedia, “extremism” is “an ideology (particularly in politics or religion), considered to be far outside the mainstream attitudes of a society or to violate common moral standards. Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and economic.”
Please notice that neither of those definitions uses the word violence. In this day and age, you can be considered an “extremist” simply based on what you believe, and as you will see later in this article there are now tens of millions of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” according to official U.S. government documents.
When you use the word “extremist”, you may have in your mind a picture of ISIS fighters or the terrorists from the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
But for elitists such as Barack Obama, the word “extremist” has a much broader meaning. In recent years, it has become a code word for those who do not have an “enlightened” view of the world. If your views on politics, religion or social issues are extremely different from the liberal, progressive views of “the mainstream” (as defined by the mainstream media and by “mainstream” politicians such as Barack Obama), then they consider you to be an extremist.

Webster Tarpley – World Crisis Radio – January 10, 2015
French President Francois Hollande declared on January 5, 2015 that US-ordered sanctions against Russia had to end. On January 7, Paris was rocked by the worst terror attack in many decades, carried out by ostentatiously Islamist operatives against the political satire weekly Charlie Hebdo. Are these events somehow related? And is the real issue more geopolitics than free speech?
