Christians Awake – it’s time for the truth

On Easter Sunday this year in Sri Lanka three Christian churches together with three hotels in Colombo were targeted by ISIS in suicide attacks which claimed the lives of more than 250 people and injured some 500 others including worshippers and foreigners. The attack was premeditated. What is more the Saudi Arabian foreign office knew it was planned five days before it happened.

The following leaked document shows that the Saudis were aware of the slaughter that was about to take place and may even have been the perpetrators. In a top secret letter from Foreign Minister, Ibrahim bin Abdul Aziz al-Assaf, to Saudi Ambassador in Sri Lanka, Abdul Nasser al-Harethi, it instructed Saudis in Sri Lanka to stay away from churches on Easter Day.

Saudi Arabia has a history of funding ISIS and terror. As Julian Assange pointed out in an interview with John Pilger not only was Saudi Arabia funding ISIS it was also funding the Clinton Foundation.

Only last year a journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, was murdered in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul by a special squad flown in from Saudi Arabia to do the dirty act. The BBC was, for once, excellent in reporting this and for a few days the plight of the destitute and dying in Saudi’s war on Yemen was given coverage. Sadly, because of western love of Saudi money it was short-lived.

The love of money is the root of all evil according to a letter written by Paul to his fellow-Christian Timothy. By the time of his second letter to the same he was in chains and imprisoned for speaking the truth. People who tell things as they are – there are few in mainstream media allowed this luxury – are just as likely today to be persecuted for their honesty as they were in Paul’s day.

That is why Julian Assange is in Belmarsh prison. He told the truth about US war-crimes in Iraq. Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning provided Wikileaks with video evidence of these war crimes. For telling this truth and providing the shocking footage many of us have seen, she went to prison. Although released by the Obama administration she is back in custody now for an indefinite period for refusing to testify against Wikileaks. People who speak the truth lay themselves open to all kinds of punishment, from incarceration, torture and amputation to capital beheadings and crucifixion. It is widely held that Julian Assange is currently being subjected to mind-warping drugs.

We in the west love money so much we are prepared to forgive Saudi Arabia for its genocide against Yemeni people already struggling to survive in one of the poorest of countries in the world, people who are often indiscriminately slaughtered with western weapons, and children dying of starvation. We are prepared to forgive Saudi Arabia for the planned murder of the US and former Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, in the consulate in Istanbul. We are prepared to forgive Saudi Arabia for the mass execution of its political opponents. We are prepared to forgive Saudi Arabia for any involvement in the mass murder of Christians in Sri Lanka.

Why? We forgive them not because forgiveness is a tenet of Christian teaching – though it is. We forgive them because we love their money. This love of money is the root of all the criminal acts outlined in the previous paragraph. Yet western governments lack the moral fibre to speak the truth. Worse still, western governments seek to make those who do tell the truth, pay for their honesty and for the moral fibre they possess that governments lack. Saudi Arabia is not our friend. Neither are western governments.

Julian Assange, like Paul, and many others from history, is being persecuted for revealing the truth. We teach our children it is right to tell the truth. If journalists and human rights campaigners stop telling the truth there is no hope for the future of society. We come into the world without money. We go out of the world unable to take anything we gained with us. Paul said that too. Therefore there is an obligation on us to speak the truth and support others who do so. I urge one and all to speak up for Julian Assange. He represents us all.

A tale of two cities – Paris and New York

Paris

Sadly, last night, the impressive spire of the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris fell onto the roof of the cathedral. Constructed of wood and covered with lead it burned for some seven hours before the weakest point gave way and the spire came down. I expect many others have drawn mental comparisons between the collapse of this spire and the structure called the “spire” which was demolished along with WTC1 in New York on 11 September 2001.

The collapse of the 19th century spire can be seen on several videos showing what would be expected to happen in accordance with Newtonian physics, the laws of motion and gravity. Newton’s first law (Law of inertia) is obeyed in that an object when acted upon by a force will continue in a linear direction unless acted upon by another force. In this case the force acting upon the spire was gravity (a natural force) which came into play when the point of least resistance gave way allowing the spire to fall. Importantly the spire continued to fall in the same direction until it was acted upon by another force – the cathedral roof – which stopped its further linear momentum.

This second picture shows that the spire continued in the same outward direction in which it started (featured image).

Spire Notre Dame 2

New York

While this article compares spires it is fair also to say that the whole of the North Tower fell without apparently following the laws of  Newtonian physics though a case could be made for the stronger nuclear forces which can compromise atomic structures.

The “spire” which was a core column of WTC1 (North Tower) has been the subject of much speculation. It falls several seconds after other parts of the building have already fallen. It then appears to vanish into its own footprint, that is, straight down through the path of greatest resistance. Whereas the spire on Notre Dame cathedral leaves behind the structure that had been previously supporting it – the equal and opposite forces of Newton’s third law. Watch how it falls in the video below and imagine the stronger support structures beneath it. Where did they go?

As with the spire of the cathedral, which was a much weaker structure, one corner of WTC1, where the initial fire took place was weaker than other parts and the top section started falling, like Notre Dame spire, outwards. Unlike the spire in Paris it did not continue on that path. This photograph shows the original momentum and if a straight line was to be drawn from the corner edge the degree of tilt can be seen.

North tower collapse initiation

That still was taken from the video linked here. To obey Newton’s laws it would have continued in the same path for the simple reason that it is the path of least resistance. There are currently more than 3000 qualified engineers and architects who are seeking to find out what really happened almost 18 years ago. Below some of the pioneers of this movement explain why Newton’s laws of motion were not followed when the twin towers and Building 7 collapsed in almost freefall. 

I hope people can see from the way the spire of Notre Dame fell that the twin towers -which were also much stronger below compared to the compromised section at the top – should have followed a similar path.

Former SBU officer dishes the dirt on Ukraine

Vasily Nikolaevich Prozorov, a former SBU (Ukrainian Security Services) officer, escaped to Russia with a huge trove of potentially damaging information against the Poroshenko regime. It ranges from the running of black sites where prisoners are tortured and deprived of air to Ukraine’s culpability in the downing of MH17. Also in the trove is the involvement of the CIA and MI6 in joint operations with the SBU.

Prozorov gave an international press-conference yesterday outlining some of his revelations. Independent observers believe there is a lot more to come. One of the torture sites is a warehouse near Mariupol military airport (see cover image of interior). It is known that two people have died from the extreme tortures with the possibility of many other deaths since there is a network of secret torture-sites in Ukraine. The prison near Mariupol is referred to as “The Library” and prisoners are called “books”.

 

 

Two victims of Ukraine’s torture prisons

Great Britain and the United States have sent a number of advisors to Ukraine. Prozorov claims that the CIA have had a residential presence since the conflict began in 2014 and make regular visits to the SBU headquarters. He even goes so far as to name two MI6 “agents” – Charles Backford and Justin Hartman who went to Kramatorsk for which they had to get special permits from the SBU. He thinks the year was 2016. He further named a member of the [US] Defense Department’s Intelligence Agency, Harry Reid, as a visitor.

 

 

Prozorov, V. N. and his SBU credentials

In his televised interview Prozorov was convinced that Ukraine was involved in bringing about the destruction of MH17 which claimed 298 lives and was directed over war-torn Donbas. When he tried to make inquiries into this he was told “If you don’t want to have problems keep your nose out of it.” He named the current deputy chief of the Ukrainian presidential staff Valery Kondratyuk and chief of the Ukrainian Defence Ministry’s intelligence directorate, Vasily Burba, for the cover up regarding MH17.

In the interview Prozorov appeared to have a strong hand and was keeping his cards close to his chest. There is likely to be more to come. At the time of writing it has been difficult to get a western view on these revelations from our media. It should not be long before Bellingcat is hard at work. In the meantime one dissenting voice, The Koz Times, points out that Prozorov “was dismissed from the post of the senior consultant-expert of a department of the headquarters of the security Service of Ukraine” for “systematic use of alcohol in the workplace, discrediting the rank of officer.”

I have a good idea on what our media might be concentrating.

We don’t want Poroshenko in the UK

Everywhere Petro Poroshenko, current president of Ukraine, goes on his campaign to get re-elected he meets with protestors from the extreme right. The chocolate magnate in 2014 started the first civil-war in near 100 years bringing some 10,000 non-combat deaths to his own people. To achieve this he formerly relied on those very militants who are now turning against him with his attacks on the good people of Novorossiya.

Novorossiya is now a breakaway republic comprising pro-Russians living in the Don basin – from where Donbas gets its name. The main administrative areas  are the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR).

Poroshenko is a friend the UK needs less than a rabbit needs a weasel as a pal. Another manipulator, oligarch and warmonger is one too many. We have more than enough already. Although Berezovsky, Glushkov (both murdered) and Abramovich are no longer a direct threat in the UK other mega-crooks and oligarchs are running the city – protected by our secret-services.

But where is the BBC? Where are the other UK MSM channels? They were there on prime-time TV news with almost daily reports of demonstrations on the Maidan prior to the western-sponsored coup to overthrow Yanukovych. This looks a lot more serious than Maidan because of the extreme nationalist element yet there is little if any news coverage.

Anyway when Poroshenko flees, which he will, we don’t want him here. We’ve had enough of these low-lifes.

Fentanyl poisoned the Skripals – back to basics

You have to start at the beginning. In the beginning there was no military-grade nerve-agent even though Russia was being blamed for having planted it. In the beginning there was only fentanyl. Then on the second day God created the secret services and the world did not know good from evil.
Twelve months ago I had the Skripal saga’s chin tied up and was able to lay its body out stone-cold in its coffin. On 7 March 2018 I wrote on Craig Murray’s blog:
“I think . . . that is unlikely that these poor people will recover. If our spooks were involved in any way, and they are handling the investigation, then the Russian ex-spy and his daughter are hardly going to be given a chance to testify as to who did it.What really stinks is that from day one Russia was blamed by our media. That is the same media that have stopped Russian athletes from competing in sporting events with a catalogue of lies and misinformation.

Just for your information, because most people do not see facts our media does not want them to see, Russia was 19th in WADA’s own list of doping offences for 2013. Other than China its athletes were tested more than any other country. The USA athletes were tested just over 7,000 times while Russian athletes were tested 12,500 times. Russia has a population of 143m while the USA has a population of 327m. This means per capita Russian athletes were tested four times more often than US athletes.

https://www.facebook.com/vaska.yu/posts/1290212384416854

I think we know what happens next with the slagging off of Russia whoever is culpable.”

The “Blame Russia” meme has been hammered to death. Having invented the Novichok scenario there is no turning back for its inventors. You might have thought after the Christopher Steele “dodgy dossier” our former MI6 officers would have learnt something. Look at the featured image at the top of this blog-piece. Pablo Miller retweeted this in January 2017 mocking President Trump over the fake “golden showers” revelation that Miller himself probably had a hand in writing. It was a costly report that would later be shown to be, what the secret services specialise in – disinformation.

Sadly our “intelligence” services limp on from one blunder to another.  It could well be that Sergey Skripal with his contacts in Russia, if he still had any, fed Steele and Miller at Orbis Business Intelligence this nonsense. Unfortunately these blunders may be the reason that we will never hear from the Skripals again.

Ten days after the Skripals ingested fentanyl Stephen Davies wrote the following letter to the Times over that newspaper’s alarmist headline, a headline which was panicking people of Salisbury into thinking they may have been poisoned by a nerve-agent and thus adding unnecessary burdens on an already overworked NHS.

“Sir, Further to your report (“Poison Exposure Leaves Almost 40 Needing Treatment”, Mar 14), may I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve-agent poisoning in Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning. Several people have attended the emergency department with concerns that they may have been exposed. None had symptoms of poisoning and none has needed treatment. Any blood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved. STEPHEN DAVIES, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust”

Every medic at the hospital, every medic in Wiltshire, every medic in the country who could access the notes knew full well what it was. It was fentanyl. Try interviewing anybody at the hospital and they will not be allowed to speak to you unless it is a designated spokesperson.

On 5 March 2018 the Clinical Services Journal put out the story Response Unit Called As Salisbury Hospital Declares “Major Incident”. It said:

“Emergency personnel arrived to the scene, wearing full-body hazardous materials protective and an incident response unit was on site.

It followed an incident hours earlier in which a man and a woman were exposed to Fentanyl in the city centre. The opoid is 10,000 times stronger than heroin.”

This remained the medical diagnosis till long after the Skripals had gained consciousness. In fact it was not until 26 April that some person or persons unknown made the journal change the second quoted paragraph to:

“It followed an incident hours earlier in which a man and a woman were exposed to a substance in the city centre.”

Wisely, for those who do not believe a word of the government narrative, there was an addendum showing editing history.

“Note: This story was updated on 26 April 2018 to remove suggestion (which was widely speculated and reported at the time of writing) that the substance found was fentanyl.”

Ask a few questions. Why can our media not talk to the Skripals? Where are they imprisoned? Why can they not be visited by relatives? Why is parliament so quiet on the subject? If a military-grade nerve agent was used in Salisbury don’t you think the city would have gone into lockdown? I should hope it would.

If the Skripals are not dead those keeping them imprisoned do not do so in my name. So I urge everyone who cares for their fellow human-beings to go back to the beginning. You will discover that the novichok evil came after the beginning.

 

Mandala of the thin bodies: Fedorov-Sergeyev

I came across the above image on a Russian poetry site. As an aspiring poet myself it impressed me. In fact it made me laugh. Although Inna is Russian she lives in the UK so I checked to see if she had a Facebook page. Lo and behold she did.

Unfortunately I discovered that some of her posts cannot be seen – the political ones. Like mine they are no doubt scrutinised and sometimes wiped out by an evil entity, or entities, with the audacity, if not my authority, to remove them. My last blog-post was on the same subject as Inna’s poem – the unbelievability of Bellingcat’s image manipulation via the loyal auspices of Professor Hassan Ugail’s team at the University of Bradford.

I have asked Professor Ugail if the images were manipulated. He has been proudly splashing on Twitter Bellingcat’s “proof” that Sergeyev and Fedotov are the same person – something unbelievable to most people who view the undoctored images. Professor Ugail has yet to respond – that’s if he can see my last blog-post. There has been very little traffic from Twitter.

The artwork accompanying Inna’s poem is in the form of a passport – with a manipulated image one side, and the passport details made into a mandala with name, date of birth, passport number, mother and father, more dates of birth, figures and unfathomable codes. In short a very clever idea, a worthy pun on the nonsense the Skripal narrative has become. Though not for the Skripals.

This is the image of Sergeyev dropped directly from the Dagestan war footage in the video supplied by Bellingcat alongside the passport image allegedly leaked to Bellingcat.

Bellingcat man

And this is what Professor Ugail’s team managed to do with it.

Professor Hassan Ugail image

On this evidence if the police ever get hold of Professor Ugail’s software I suspect justice will take yet another retrogressive step.

Inna calls her poem “Mandala of the thin bodies”. She uses poetic licence and labels Fedotov – Fedorov. This hardly matters in the world of poetry, prose and fiction, whereas in the word of fact it ought to matter. I think the border-line between fact and fiction is getting less and less distinct. There is a significant difference between the patronymic Vyacheslavovich (son of Vyacheslavov) and Vyacheslavich (son of Vyacheslav) but that has not seemed to bother Bellingcat – which has become highly-prized and well-funded by governments whose leaders are keeping their tortoise necks in their tortoise shells. No sensible person would stick out a neck regarding some of these incredible stories.

Anyway, it is not all doom and gloom, for the poorer people in society. At least we can be entertained by Inna’s poem which gives all the matrices, coordinates, cross-hairs, rays and sectors for Sergeyev’s family, mother, father, children, neighbours, dates of birth, dates and times of flights all over the planet. Thank you Inna of the Mandela. Thank you for cheering us up.

Note: Although its use was not for commercial reasons I have edited this post so as not to infringe Inna’s intellectual property rights. For Russian readers Inna’s poem can be found here.

https://www.stihi.ru/2019/02/15/1322

There is also a connected mandala about the visit to Salisbury cathedral by Alexander Petrov and his birthdate mandela. Also very beautiful. I have yet to work out how seriously Inna takes her mandala creation, and if I have offended her: прости Инна.

These two men are the same

Bellingcat has brought out part two of its proof that Sergeyev and Fedotov are the same man. In a tediously long article it takes the reader down the road of four months of investigation that led to the conclusion with which it first started. Helped along the way by the western-sponsored Fontanka (named after one of St. Petersburg’s canals) it makes poor reading. Fontanka’s owner is Victor Shkulev, a man reputably buying up media outlets in the manner Rupert Murdoch once did.

I have to confess I am not very good at recognising people from photographs so in fairness I am not best placed to contradict Professor Hassan Ugail (whose name Bellingcat cannot spell) of the Centre for Visual Computing (whose name Bellingcat cannot spell, despite the funding the blog-site gets). Using sophisticated software his team has concluded that the two men in the pictures above are the same. I have shown these likenesses to someone close to me with better face-recognition skills than me. She could not see it.

The grainy image of the man on the right is clearly some twenty years older and he appears to have found a cure for a receding hairline. He also appears to have had a nose-job. To be fair, though, the only test I have been able to do  is in no way conclusive. I held a ruler across chin-lines, mouth-lines, nose-lines, eye-lines, eyebrow lines, and head-lines. They did not match but then that is only a basic test and does not involve any algorithms. So I hold my hand up, and take my cap off, to the superior skills of the Centre for Visual Computing at Bradford for being able to establish that this is Bellingcat’s man.

There is so little time to take apart this hotchpotch of items cobbled together as fact, and time is so precious, I must leave that task to others who have more freedom on their hands. I was rather disappointed that Bellingcat did not mention the Denis Vyacheslavovich Sergeyev I discovered working in the Russian Embassy in Marseille. I was simply told by Bellingcat that there were “tons” of them. Although when I asked if they could confirm that my discovery was not the same man my enquiry met with silence. In their heavily-funded searches they obviously did not find the vice-consul of Marseille but they did find someone with nearly the same name, Denis Vyacheslav Segeyev, and that better fitted their pre-formed meme of vilifying Russia.

Anyway I really must thank Professor Hassan Ugail, and his team, for being able to establish that these identities were the same. I’m sure I could not have done it. What about you?
