We attended this highly informative and sobering lecture which was hosted by the Pacific Institute of Resource Management at Victoria University of Wellington on Thursday 29 October at 5.30 pm. I highly recommend a listen to this lecture which is now posted at the Pacific Ecologist Website link here

The United States has been the dominant world power since World War II, even prior to USSR break-up, as indicated by more than 70 governments overthrown by the US in that period. The USSR collapse led to a complete reshaping of the European landscape, but at the same time China has emerged as a leading world power, as it had been before the 17th century. In recent years its growing financial and economic strength is transforming not only China, but also laying the foundations for a completely new economic order through a ‘new silk roads’ policy that is accompanied by a network of regional and world-wide agreements. Once again Eurasia is at the heart of what Sir Halford Mackinder in 1904 called the ‘world island’. For the west, these developments will shape the foreseeable future world-wide.

James writes on geopolitical issues with a legal and human rights perspective. He was educated at Canterbury, Victoria and Auckland Universities, and has practised as a barrister in Brisbane since 1984. He publishes in Counterpunch and New Eastern Outlook, and presents to organisations such as the Australian Institute for International Affairs.

The MH-17 ‘Report’

Paul Craig Roberts

When I read that the report on the downing of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine was being
put in the hands of the Dutch, I knew that there would be no investigation and no attention to the facts.

And there wasn’t.

I did not intend to write about the report, because Washington’s propaganda has already succeeded, at least in the Western world, in its purpose of laying the blame on Russia. However, the misrepresentation of the Dutch report by Western media, such as NPR, is so outrageous as to make the media the story and not the report.

For example, I just heard NPR’s Moscow correspondent, Corey Flintoff, say that the missile that hit the airliner was fired by Ukrainian separatists who lack the technical ability to operate the system. Therefore, the missile had to have been fired by a Russian.

There is nothing in the Dutch report whatsoever that leads to this conclusion. Flintoff either is
incompetent or lying or he is expressing his view and not the report’s conclusion.

The only conclusion that the report reaches is one that we already knew: if a Buk missile brought down the airliner, it was a Russian-made missile. The Dutch report does not say who fired it.

Indeed, the report places no blame on Russia, but it does place blame on Ukraine for not closing the airspace over the war area. Attorneys have stated in response to the report that families of those killed and the Malaysian airline itself are likely to file lawsuits against Ukraine for negligence.

Of course, there was nothing of this in Flintoff’s report.

As I wrote at the time of the airliner’s destruction, the Western media already had “the-Russians-did-it” story ready the moment the airliner was reported to be shot down. This story was very useful to Washington in hardening its European vassal states into sanctions against Russia, as there was some dissent. What Washington has never explained and the Western media has never asked is: What motive did separatists and Russia have to shoot down a Malaysian airliner?

Declassify the Truth – 9/11 Transparency On The Rise

We are at a unique and critical juncture at the 14th year after the events of 9/11. Several developments are providing great potential for spreading wider awareness of the alternative research on 9/11. New opportunities have emerged providing a platform for activists to work to achieve accountability, justice, and comprehensive human progress by taking action to the next level – the political arena.

This year’s event will present panels to examine these developments. We will evaluate several events such as the emergence of an FBI whistleblower on the anthrax attacks, legislation in Congress to declassify 28 pages of 9/11 evidence and the political repercussions approaching the next presidential election. We will present concrete and feasible steps of action. We’ll also look at broadening our understanding of psychological resistance to 9/11 alternative research, an in-depth analysis of the reality of our legal system and what the ideal model would look like.

So join us on Saturday, September 12th, 2015 for our symposium called “Declassify the Truth – 9/11 Transparency On The Rise” to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It will be at West Park Presbyterian Church, located on the corner of 86th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in New York City. Doors open at 9:30 am with the event beginning at 10am sharp, ending at 7pm, with a lunch break around 1pm.

Keynote Addresses:

9/11 As Catalyst For 14 Years of the “Full Spectrum Dominance” Agenda – John Perkins, author of “Confessions of an Economic Hitman”

The American Institute of Architects confirmed their place in modern Amercian [sic] SCAD in Atlanta this week, by voting not to confront the massed evidence of Controlled Demolitions in New York on 911.

By allowing the Thermal Expansion hypothesis of Shyam Sunder to stand part [“The Results Are In || May 16, 2015 Overwhelming Majority of AIA Delegates Make the Political Decision and Vote Down Resolution 15-6:”], the Institute formally wrote into the literature its blessing of the 911 creatioNIST agnotology, whereby engineering algorithms were constructed -without peer review – to explain the 82 columned 47 storied steel framed high-rises’ sudden, complete and symmetric FREE FALL, directly into its own plan area, due to the NIST described ‘New Phenomenon’ “Sequential building collapse (due to Normal Office Furnishing Fires” already OUT at time of critical initiation) on ONE floor, around ONE column seat, in 6.5 seconds.

free fall.

‘“We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.” – Daniel Barnum, FAIA

Those were the closing remarks from the lead sponsor of AIA Resolution 15-6, Daniel Barnum, FAIA. Seconds later, the AIA delegates cast their votes. The unfortunate outcome was that an overwhelming majority made the political decision. Resolution 15-6, which called upon the AIA to support a new WTC 7 investigation, was voted down 3,892 to 160, garnering 4% of the delegates’ votes.

The vote came after a number of impassioned statements from supporters and opponents. It was evident that those who opposed the resolution did not fully understand the official explanation of WTC 7’s destruction for which they claimed such adamant support. One architect from New York stated that diesel fuel fires were responsible for WTC 7’s destruction, an explanation that even NIST itself has disavowed.

Resolution 15-6 met the same fate as all but one of the substantive resolutions considered. Even in terms of percentages, the outcome was not that different, with the other four losing resolutions garnering between 6% and 26% of the votes and one being tabled. This does not mitigate our disappointment—nor does it excuse the delegates for their failure to accept their moral and ethical responsibility as architects—but it does illuminate something that we learned: it is difficult to pass even most slightly controversial resolution at the AIA National Convention.

However, that does not signal to us that we should give up on reaching out to the AIA membership. We are pleased to have gained the signatures of another 150 AIA members, seven of whom are fellows of the Institute. We will continue and intensify our outreach efforts with ever more creative and incisive strategies.

We would like to thank everyone who supported and contributed to our AIA resolution campaign. We were able to spark an unprecedented level of dialogue at the convention and gain a much deeper understanding of how we can successfully awaken the architecture community. Thank you.”‘ [A&E Bulletin]

Try talking about 91l ‘inside job’ in polite company.

Or, that ISIS is found fighting with right sector/fascist
NATO allies in Ukraine. Right now. 2015.

The work is bound to those realities as example of ’the present.’
The not-so-secret recent histories.

A rural NZ artist’s take on the Global war of terror, unleashed by the
Project for the New American Century [NEOCON] on a now suspecting world.

It is another way of saying “Learned Helplessness.”
