A video has emerged online showing Israeli police putting handcuffs on a Palestinian boy in the city of Hebron in the West Bank. The boy is mentally ill, but it didn’t prevent the soldiers from arresting him while blindfolded.
Between 500 and 700 Palestinian children are detained EVERY year by the IDF. Around 8,000 Palestinian children have been arrested and prosecuted in Israeli military courts in the last 14 years.
The western US is under an all out climate engineering assault, California most of all. The Weather Makers can shut the hydrological cycle off from the once “golden state” for as long as they wish. Satellite images and NOAA maps shown in this presentation are shocking and revealing to say the least. Whatever one wishes to consider as the agenda of those in power, one conclusion is certain, the drought in California is a direct result of the ongoing climate engineering insanity. Weather warfare is now being waged on the American population.
Three months after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was violently brought down from the skies over Ukraine, there are still no definitive answers to what caused the tragedy. Civil conflict in the area prevented international experts from conducting a full and thorough investigation. The wreckage should have been collected and scrupulously re-assembled to identify all the damage, but this standard investigative procedure was never carried out. Until that’s done, evidence can only be gleaned from pictures of the debris, the flight recorders or black boxes and eye-witnesses’ testimonies. This may be enough to help build a picture of what really happened to the aircraft, whether a rocket fired from the ground or gunfire from a military jet.
USociopaths simulating their next false flag:
22 Oct 2014 The New York City region’s emergency agencies are practicing for a disaster. The city’s Office of Emergency Management ran a training exercise Wednesday that simulated a response to a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploding at 42nd Street and Seventh Avenue in Times Square, WCBS 880 reported. According to the exercise, 100,000 people were instantly killed; a wave of overpressure took down buildings for a half-mile radius and did damage for up to two miles; and a radiation cloud swept over the region.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — An $8 million dollar settlement has been reached in the case of the late Brother Stephen Baker.
A Boston attorney who represents 34 of the former Bishop McCort victims and several others in other states, said, “A victim who was outside the statute of limitations, in terms of civil cases, would receive a minimun of $60,000. A victim who’s case fell within the statute of limitations would receive $120,000,” Mitchell Garabedian said.
The settlement was reached between 88 sexual abuse victims of Brother Baker and the Franciscan Friars of the Thrid Order Regular; Province of Immaculate Conception; the Very Reverend Father Robert D’Aversa, T.O.R., Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown; Bishop Joseph V. Adamec; Bishop McCort High School; and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Youngstown.
In a statement released by one of the attorney representing the victims, it said, “No amount of money eliminates the emotional and physical pain of having been sexually molested by someone you turst and respect.”
The Altoona-Johnstown Diocese released a statement following the settlement.
Bishop Mark Bartchak said, “The Diocese hopes that this outcome will allow the victims to seek couseling and find the healing and comfort they deserve.”
Brother Baker committed suicide in January.

Stop us when the flashbacks to September 11, and its Patriot Act aftermath, become too close for comfort.
s Reuters reported moments ago, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday the government will expedite plans to give more powers of detention and surveillance to security agencies in the wake of an attack on Parliament.
“They need to be much strengthened, and I assure you, Mr. Speaker, that work which is already under way will be expedited,” he told the House of Commons, one day after a gunman launched an attack on Parliament and was shot dead.
On the other hand, instead of giving the government even more authoritarian power to do with civilian liberties as it sees fit and appropriate, perhaps the government’s agencies could have simply done their work better under the existing laws and regulations, especially after the Sky News report that the Ottawa shooter, Canadian born Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, was already on a terror watch list.
The gunman who killed a soldier in Ottawa and stormed Canada’s parliament had been put on a terror watch list, it has emerged.
The attacker, identified as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau by Canadian media, was considered “high risk” and had seen his passport confiscated to stop him travelling abroad to join Islamic State terrorists in Iraq or Syria.
But the 32-year-old was able to strike at the heart of his home country’s capital, shooting dead Corporal Nathan Cirillo before he was himself gunned down by Sergeant-At-Arms Kevin Vickers as he launched his assault on parliament.
US sources said the killer was a convert to Islam from Quebec who grew up in Laval and Montreal and was called Michael Joseph Hall before he changed his name.
But while most have stretched to make a link between Zehaf-Bibeau and Muslim in general (or ISIS in particular), a very distubring direction where this may be headed is revealed in the following:
Family friend Dave Bathurst told the CBC Zehaf-Bibeau did not appear to have extremist views, but had at times shown a disturbing side.
He said: “We were having a conversation in a kitchen, and I don’t know how he worded it – he said the devil is after him.”
Mr Bathurst said his friend frequently talked about the presence of Shaytan in the world – an Arabic term for devils and demons, adding: “I think he must have been mentally ill.”
So while one can understand the stereotyping of fear under the guise of race, ethnicity or religion, what happens when the brand spanking new pre-crime unit of “Oceania” targets not just those who are externally different but pose a risk threat because they could be, according to the government, “mentally ill.” Good luck proving to a jury of peers after the fact of one’s arrest (by the Ministry of Peace of course) that one is, in fact, perfectly normal.

Q: “Who is going to defend the country without the Army?”
Zappa: “From what? The biggest threat to America is its own federal government… Will the Army protect anybody from the FBI? The IRS? The CIA? The Republican Party? The Democratic Party?… The biggest dangers we face today don’t even need to sneak past our billion-dollar defense systems… they issue the contracts for them.”
According to a book by George Williston called This Tribe of Mine: A Story of Anglo Saxon Viking Culture in America, the United States wages eternal war because of its cultural roots in the Germanic tribes that invaded, conquered, ethnically cleansed, or — if you prefer — liberated England before moving on to the slaughter of the Native Americans and then the Filipinos and Vietnamese and on down to the Iraqis. War advocate, former senator, and current presidential hopeful Jim Webb himself blames Scots-Irish American culture.
But most of medieval and ancient Europe engaged in war. How did Europe end up less violent than a place made violent by Europe? Williston points out that England spends dramatically less per capita on war than the United States does, yet he blames U.S. warmaking on English roots. And, of course, Scotland and Ireland are even further from U.S. militarism despite being closer to England and presumably to Scots-Irishness.
“We view the world through Viking eyes,” writes Williston, “viewing those cultures that do not hoard wealth in the same fashion or make fine iron weapons as child-like and ripe for exploitation.” Williston describes the passage of this culture down to us through the pilgrims, who came to Massachusetts and began killing — and, quite frequently, beheading — those less violent, acquisitive, or competitive than they.
Germans and French demonstrated greater respect for native peoples, Williston claims. But is that true? Including in Africa? Including in Auschwitz? Williston goes on to describe the United States taking over Spanish colonialism in the Philippines and French colonialism in Vietnam, without worrying too much about how Spain and France got there.
I’m convinced that a culture that favors war is necessary but not sufficient to make a population as warlike as the United States is now. All sorts of circumstances and opportunities are also necessary. And the culture is constantly evolving. Perhaps Williston would agree with me. His book doesn’t make a clear argument and could really have been reduced to an essay if he’d left out the religion, the biology metaphors, the experiments proving telepathy or prayer, the long quotes of others, etc. Regardless, I think it’s important to be clear that we can’t blame our culture in the way that some choose to blame our genes. We have to blame the U.S. government, identify ourselves with humanity rather than a tribe, and work to abolish warmaking.
In this regard, it can only help that people like Williston and Webb are asking what’s wrong with U.S. culture. It can be shocking to an Israeli to learn that their day of independence is referred to by Palestinians as The Catastrophe (Nakba), and to learn why. Similarly, many U.S. school children might be startled to know that some native Americans referred to George Washington as The Destroyer of Villages (Caunotaucarius). It can be difficult to appreciate how peaceful native Americans were, how many tribes did not wage war, and how many waged war in a manner more properly thought of as “war games” considering the minimal level of killing. As Williston points out, there was nothing in the Americas to compare with the Hundred Years War or the Thirty Years War or any of the endless string of wars in Europe — which of course are themselves significantly removed in level of killing from wars of more recent years.
Williston describes various cooperative and peaceful cultures: the Hopi, the Kogi, the Amish, the Ladakh. Indeed, we should be looking for inspiration wherever we can find it. But we shouldn’t imagine that changing our cultural practices in our homes will stop the Pentagon being the Pentagon. Telepathy and prayer are as likely to work out as levitating the Pentagon in protest. What we need is a culture dedicated to the vigorous nonviolent pursuit of the abolition of war.

Have TV journalists learned anything from the last several years?
Says Vidal: “Everybody with an IQ above room temperature is on to the con act of our media. They are obeying bigger, richer interests than informing the public — which is the last thing that corporate America has ever been interested in doing.”
An American political commentator says the resurgence of opium trade in Afghanistan is a “direct result of the US invasion” in 2001.
“I think the growth of the opium trade in Afghanistan is a direct result of the US invasion of Afghanistan,” James Petras, retired Bartle Prof. of sociology at Binghamton University, told Press TV in an interview on Tuesday.
According to US federal auditors, Afghanistan’s opium industry is booming despite $7.6 billion spent in US counternarcotics efforts since 2002.
The most recent report was released on Tuesday by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
SIGAR said the net land area used for poppy cultivation in 2013 was more than 500,000 acres, a 36 percent jump from the previous year and a historic record.
“The antinarcotics international agencies all noted that during the reign of the Taliban, there were [sic] virtually no poppies being grown,” Petras said. “The Taliban was strictly enforcing the outlawing of the growing of the narcotic plants.
The United Nations said that the majority of the cultivation happened in Helmand and Kandahar provinces that were the focus of the 33,000-strong American troop surge four years ago.
“Subsequent to the invasion, we have the breakdown of government responsibilities, the imposition of US rule through warlords and selected client regimes which had no authority, no influence over the countryside,” Petras continued.
He noted that the Afghan government under the influence of US presence had no influence on rural areas of the country and bribed tribal leaders by letting them grow narcotics.
“One way they attempted to secure the allegiances of various tribal and rural leaders was by tolerating the growth of opium and other narcotic plants as a way of trying to outlaw the Taliban,” he said.
Petras concluded that the end of the US military occupation in Afghanistan and large scale alternative farming and subsidies could end the “narcotics epidemic” in the country.
More information is available that suggests the government had advance information that Ebola was coming to the US and that the government expects a much larger outbreak of the disease in the US than it admits.
Keep in mind that Washington is evil and has been killing people in seven countries for thirteen years based entirely on lies. Keep in mind that Washington has a long list of countries that it has destabilized. Most recently, Washington overthrew the elected government in Ukraine and is currently working on the remaining independent governments in the Middle East, Russia, and China as Tony Cartalucci’s article documents. For six case studies of how Washington overthrows governments read The Brothers.
Here is a report from Natural News.
The US government knew about the outbreak in advance, but didn’t warn the public.
It’s now clear that the US government has long known this outbreak was coming but did nothing to warn the public.
In early September, the government sought to purchase 160,000 Ebola hazmat suits from a US supplier.
Furthermore, according to this report on SHTFplan.com, “Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October.”
Don’t you find it strange that while the government itself was gearing up for an October disaster, the public wasn’t told a thing about any of this?
I have written before about the very real threat of nuclear false flag attacks, notably, but not only, on 23 August of this year. Please see:
I would rather not write about these sorts of things, except that the topic keeps surfacing, by overt implication, in the mainstream news media, and I feel that it calls for a response.
Additionally, the shamanic plants here in the Ecuadorian Amazon called to my attention a couple of years ago the existence of a shadowy plot by extremely insidious and nefarious elements to detonate nuclear devices in multiple cities, as triggering events for “totalitarian nuclear warfare.”
It is real ugly stuff, and I wish we could all dismiss that very dark alert.
But stories like this one keep surfacing:
Click the link. Read the article. The emergency response agencies in New York City are practicing for a 10-kiloton nuclear detonation in mid-town Manhattan, that will blow down skyscrapers in a half-mile radius, kill 100,000 people outright, cause damage up to 2 miles away, and cover the metro area with radioactivity.
Subway service will go down. Cell phone service will be disrupted.
In other words, there would be total chaos, death, destruction and mayhem in New York City.
