IS CAPITALISM ACTUALLY REPTILIANISM?
Were humans vegetarian or perhaps vegan only?
Is communism the true state of the human race but warped and twisted out of all recognition by Stalin & Co.?
Hi! The world is currently in deep doodoo. Want to know why? Do you want an injection of truth? Then take The Truth Serum. See the true world develop before your very eyes. See the slow imposition of a Police State with microchip implants and 24/7 surveillance. See the disappearance of cash to be replaced with a cashless society. And much, much more...
But with the U.N. Security Council blocked from action by Russia and China, the administration has utterly failed to take or organize steps that might end the carnage in Syria. Instead, close allies of the United States, including Britain, France and Turkey, have watched with growing dismay as the White House has concocted excuse after excuse for passivity, most recently a claim that direct U.S. aid to Syrian rebel forces — or even to civilian organizations — would be illegal.
...Most rebel leaders, and average Syrians, are furious at Washington for withholding meaningful aid. They may be disinclined to listen to calls for dismantling the extremist groups that helped win the war. One way or another, Syria will haunt President Obama’s second term — and, based on the record so far, it will be recorded as one of his greatest failures.

So to anyone starting this New Year with questions about where we are heading and what the future holds, I want to reassure you of this: we are on the right track. On all the big issues that matter to Britain, we are heading in the right direction and I have the evidence to prove it.
Give me control of a nation's money supply and I care not who makes the laws.
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money."
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.
Schools should axe Labour’s citizenship classes and devote more time to British history studies, MPs will say today.
The idea is one of a string of measures being put forward to reverse the decline in history teaching which has seen the subject all but disappear in state schools in some parts of the country.
Research by the All-Party History Group found that fewer than 30 per cent of 16-year-olds in state schools were entered for the GCSE in 2010, compared with 55 per cent of pupils in grammar schools and 48 per cent in private schools.
In one local authority area – Knowsley, in Merseyside – just four pupils passed the exam.
MPs said schools should be allowed to replace citizenship classes with history. Citizenship was introduced as a compulsory subject a decade ago.
Pupils study topics such as crime, justice and politics, and how to be an ‘active citizen’ by voting and taking part in society.
But critics say it is often poorly taught and of little value.

IDF Special Forces are operating inside Syria to track chemical weapons, the London Sunday Times reported. The Israeli government has not commented on the report.
The report from London comes hours after Syrian opposition forces released a video showing that Syrian President Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons in the commercial center of Aleppo.
The newspaper stated that the IDF operations across the border are part of new secret operations to locate non-conventional weapons and to sabotage them to prevent their use.

Driving around town two things are clear. Firstly, that the army has successfully repulsed the full-scale rebel push into the city centre and, secondly, that the rebels will be back.
We heard explosions and saw smoke coming from the districts of Deera, Dirya, Kfar Sousa and Jaramana. All are within three miles of the city centre.
In Jaramana, south Damascus, the explosions were coming every few minutes interspersed with small arms fire.
On a side street 100 yards from the road to the international airport we watched as an army unit in a sandbagged bunker exchanged fire with rebel fighters across a dual carriageway.
The few people still outside so close to the shooting ran down the street to get to their shops and houses, but they could go no further. Neither could we. Attempts to make it to the army unit were thwarted by state security who turned up and politely, but firmly, told us we had to leave.
In Jaramana, locals were also still clearing up the mess from last week's double car bombing which killed 68 people.
Most died as they ran to the scene of the first blast to help the wounded. The secondary explosion tactic is much-used by jihadists and this attack bore their hallmarks.
The Al Nusra front, a jihadist group comprising foreign and local fighters, appears to be increasingly involved in terror tactics.
We travelled around 18 miles out of the city into one of the poor, rundown towns which line the Damascus-to-Homs highway.
Tragedy has befallen Wafideen. On Tuesday a rocket hit a classroom in the town, killing a teacher and 14 children and wounding another 14.
We went to their mass funeral, where a sea of people dissolved into tears shed for the innocent.
The children were aged between 14 and 15, some girls, some boys, all killed by what most people we spoke to said was a missile fired by the rebel FSA forces.
Wafideen is a predominantly pro-government town, which had until this week been spared the worst of the Syria's civil war. With emotions running high, the sight of a foreign media team brought a mixed response.
Some people were pleased that someone had come to record what has to be the worst moment in the town's history. Not a single Syrian reporter was present.
They are being killed on a regular basis, and although this was a town still supporting the President, getting to it meant going through areas which could change hands at any time - leaving them on the wrong side of a horrible death.
But not everyone wanted us in Wafideen. A group of youths, several dozen strong, began to shout at us to get out. Stones were thrown towards us, before pro and anti-government chants broke out as two groups converged.
Fist fights began between the youths and we headed to our car and out of town. We heard later several people had been injured. The war has come to Wafideen and it will never be the same again.

The State Department originally planned to add the Nusra Front – Jabhat al Nusra in Arabic – to its list of international terrorist groups this week, McClatchy learned. The announcement was postponed, however, as officials discussed how to get the maximum impact from the designation.

"[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Qaeda September [attack] to the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe ... now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the CIA American and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan."

Nasr compared the current situation to the period in which Al Qaeda first emerged. In the nineteen-eighties and the early nineties, the Saudi government offered to subsidize the covert American C.I.A. proxy war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Hundreds of young Saudis were sent into the border areas of Pakistan, where they set up religious schools, training bases, and recruiting facilities. Then, as now, many of the operatives who were paid with Saudi money were Salafis. Among them, of course, were Osama bin Laden and his associates, who founded Al Qaeda, in 1988.
This time, the U.S. government consultant told me, Bandar and other Saudis have assured the White House that “they will keep a very close eye on the religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve created this movement, and we can control it.’ It’s not that we don’t want the Salafis to throw bombs; it’s who they throw them at—Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Iran, and at the Syrians, if they continue to work with Hezbollah and Iran.”
The Saudi said that, in his country’s view, it was taking a political risk by joining the U.S. in challenging Iran: Bandar is already seen in the Arab world as being too close to the Bush Administration. “We have two nightmares,” the former diplomat told me. “For Iran to acquire the bomb and for the United States to attack Iran. I’d rather the Israelis bomb the Iranians, so we can blame them. If America does it, we will be blamed.”
In the past year, the Saudis, the Israelis, and the Bush Administration have developed a series of informal understandings about their new strategic direction. At least four main elements were involved, the U.S. government consultant told me. First, Israel would be assured that its security was paramount and that Washington and Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states shared its concern about Iran.
Second, the Saudis would urge Hamas, the Islamist Palestinian party that has received support from Iran, to curtail its anti-Israeli aggression and to begin serious talks about sharing leadership with Fatah, the more secular Palestinian group. (In February, the Saudis brokered a deal at Mecca between the two factions. However, Israel and the U.S. have expressed dissatisfaction with the terms.)
The third component was that the Bush Administration would work directly with Sunni nations to counteract Shiite ascendance in the region.
Fourth, the Saudi government, with Washington’s approval, would provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the government of President Bashir Assad, of Syria. The Israelis believe that putting such pressure on the Assad government will make it more conciliatory and open to negotiations. Syria is a major conduit of arms to Hezbollah. The Saudi government is also at odds with the Syrians over the assassination of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese Prime Minister, in Beirut in 2005, for which it believes the Assad government was responsible. Hariri, a billionaire Sunni, was closely associated with the Saudi regime and with Prince Bandar. (A U.N. inquiry strongly suggested that the Syrians were involved, but offered no direct evidence; there are plans for another investigation, by an international tribunal.)

Some of the same high-level sources who point to Richard Clarke as the US boss of the Israeli-instigated 9/11 false flag operation also claim that President Obama, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Dempsey, and other powerful Americans are considering exposing the truth about 9/11 during a second Obama term. In other words, Obama's re-election could put Israel out of business, and get Netanyahu hanged from the nearest lamp-post.

Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, has criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over what is perceived as his public support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the last election, Channel 2 News reported on Sunday.
Netanyahu, however, did not support Romney in any perceivable way, but the obvious dislike and disrespect that Obama showed for Israel's democratically elected Prime Minister throughout his first term made it easy for anti-Netanyahu media to present the PM as being for Romney, thereby attempting to damage his image as a responsible leader who has to get along with whoever is elected.
Pro-Netanyahu sources said that the timing of Emanuel's remarks, during Israel's election period, is not coincidental.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel said on Sunday it was withholding this month's transfer of tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority, after the United Nations' de facto recognition of a Palestinian state.
Under interim peace deals, which Israel says the Palestinians violated by unilaterally seeking an upgrade of their status at the United Nations, it collects about $100 million a month in duties on behalf of the authority.
But, Israeli officials said, the authority owes about $200 million to the Israel Electric Corporation, and that money will now be deducted from the tax transfers.
The cash-strapped authority, which exercises limited self-rule in the occupied West Bank, largely depends on the tax money to pay civil servants' salaries. Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior Palestinian official, said Israel was guilty of "piracy and theft" by refusing to hand over the funds.
Israel has previously frozen payments to the body during times of heightened security and diplomatic tensions, provoking strong international criticism, such as when the U.N. cultural body UNESCO granted the Palestinians full membership a year ago.
"I do not intend this month to transfer the funds to the Palestinians. In the coming period I intend to use the money to deduct debts the Palestinian Authority owes to the Israel Electric Corporation and other bodies," Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Israel Radio.
The U.N. victory for the Palestinians was a diplomatic setback for the United States and Israel, which were joined by only a handful of countries in voting against upgrading the Palestinians' observer status at the U.N. to "non-member state", like the Vatican, from "entity".
Hours after the U.N. vote, Israel said it was authorizing 3,000 new settler homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and expediting planning work for thousands more dwellings in a geographically sensitive area close to Jerusalem, which critics said would kill off Palestinian hopes of a viable state.
The United States said the expansion plan, which also drew strong European criticism, was counterproductive to the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks frozen since 2010.
