Hello Dear Reader, here’s an interesting character for you, as crooked as they come but ‘ don’t think there’s too many folk left that expect much else from the elite bunch of fraudsters that govern our world.
It’s written by Gordon Duff, senior editor of ‘Veterans Today’ publication and I found it on ‘Views From The Boat’ (Philosophers Stone) website.
Our wonderful Prime Minister, David Cameron has shown such loyal support for one of his greedy minister’s, Maria Miller, by insisting she stay as Cultural Secretary despite having defrauded the taxpayer of £ 44,000 by claiming expenses from a second home which was obviously her main residence. There’s more but it’s so common place here in the UK that it’s become somewhat boring, especially against the backdrop of their manifested, perpetual wars occuring across the globe.
Anyway, after first article there’s a story about the abhorrent murder of children in Palestine which goes unreported by the BBC, disgraceful. I also caught a brief glimpse of a report on RT News about innocent villagers across the Turkish border having to flee for their lives from a violent assault by the Turkish military. The pathetic and dangerous behaviour of the military world wide must be stopped, how can they live with their conscience ? Surely their training leaves them with a semblance of compassion & humanity ? Or have our worse fears materialised and they have been rendered to a state of living automatons ?
Love to you all, Janie, xxx

Who is Sheldon Adelson? Adelson is an American born “dual citizen,” of Ukrainian/Jewish ancestry. He runs the largest casinos in the world, not just in Las Vegas, a city both established and controlled by organized crime, but in Macao as well.
Born in 1933, Adelson is a true “self-made” man, moving from Wall Street to real estate and eventually into gambling and “other” endeavors.
Adelson is accused of lots of things but with personal wealth beyond estimate, certainly more than $50 billion dollars, Adelson writes his own history.
What is different about Adelson, what makes him different from the Koch Brothers or other “super-villains” is that he buys and sells politicians openly. He never makes an attempt to hide the fact that he is in the United States on behalf of Zionist extremists, buying every crooked politician he can find in order to push America into a world war on behalf of Israel.
He brags about it. This is a man with chutzpah or “impudence,” in the real language of the Jewish world, Yiddish.
Unlike the sniveling cowards that hide in the shadows, Adelson’s hatred of America is like a beacon. There are many “Israel firsters” in America, but none who would see America burned to the ground like Adelson. Yet this is not a man without charm as well.
His Own Political Party
Adelson owns America’s “opposition party,” the GOP or Republican Party including and especially its “Tea Party” extremist wing.
When the Supreme Court of the United States itself became “stacked” with “Goodfellas,” judges tied to Italian and Jewish organized crime, campaign finance laws in the United States “softened.”Buying politicians, always an issue in America, became the rule.
Adelson didn’t choose to buy the heavily Jewish Democratic party of President Obama but rather spent his cash on the Republicans, a mix of the rural ignorant, Jew hating white supremacists, Southern racists and something far worse.
Millions of Americans, many Christian Evangelist extremists, long for a police state ruled by America’s now “white minority” but under the direction of Wall Street and Tel Aviv.
Several factors tie these “strange bedfellows” together:
Safety in a “total surveillance” police state is more important than freedom
Violence is the answer to every problem, particularly when others are the victims
“Belief” is more important than “truth”
What ties Adelson to this group isn’t their love of Israel but their willingness to blindly follow policies destructive to the US and, in reality, to the Jewish people of Israel as well.
ZIONISM AND THE WAR AGAINST HUMANITY
Whatever version of events one accepts, that of Israel as a victim or Israel as a manipulator of events, planning 9/11, staging the “neocon wars” against humanity, crashing currencies and economies, running up oil prices and profiteering on war, Adelson’s role can’t be underestimated.
It isn’t just what Adelson says but rather what politicians do after they make the trek to Las Vegas to take instructions and so many of them do.
Nuclear bombing of Iran, that’s an Adelson idea, one supported by more than one “bought and paid for” Tea Party extremist.
Arming Al Qaeda with advanced surface to air missiles, that’s an Adelson idea as well, supported by “liberal” media and the entire rank and file of America’s “conservative” right.
CHRIS CHRISTIE, “THE MOB GOVERNOR”
The State of New Jersey has long been controlled by organized crime. Other states are as well, Nevada (home of Adelson), Utah, Florida, Idaho and Obama’s home state of Illinois.
The current governor of New Jersey, facing numerous investigations for bizarre “gangster-like” abuses of power, Chris Christie, recently made the “trek” to visit Adelson.
Christie, a presidential contender for the GOP, faces decades in prison. His most recent attempt to clear his name was to hire his own lawyers to investigate himself. Is it surprising that they found him innocent?
What is more outrageous, however, is what he did during his recent visit to Adelson, a visit few doubt involved seeking Adelson’s help in suppressing the criminal investigation against him.
The US has generally not been supportive of the Palestinian people with one minor exception. US policy, in accordance with international law as expressed under the Geneva Conventions, requires those lands occupied by Israel since the 1967 war to actually be called “occupied territories.”
According to the Geneva Convention, building settlements on occupied land is a war crime. It is and has been US policy to force Israel to dismantle settlements and not only end the illegal occupation but to return the lands of Judea and Samaria, up to 40% of what is now called Israel, to its legal owners, the Palestinian people.
This is the basis for Secretary of State Kerry’s negotiating stance in the current talks and has always been US policy. It is also law.
In his most recent visit to Adelson, Chris Christie, the embattled “mob owned” governor of New Jersey, took it upon himself to apologize on behalf of the people and government of the United States for the use of the term “occupied territories.”
More interestingly, presidential hopeful Christie made this apology to Las Vegas gambling boss Adelson, who he sees as the titular representative of Israel and the Jewish people of the world.
Adelson has never stood for election, not in the US nor in Israel. In fact, over 70% of Jews in the United States find Adelson’s political beliefs abhorrent.
Jews in the US are and have always been liberal Democrats, certainly the vast majority; polls continue to support this without question.
If anything, Adelson is closely aligned with groups normally seen as anti-Semitic. In fact few Jews live in “Red States,” the portions of the US that traditionally vote “Republican,” nor would they want to.
THE WAR ON WORKING AMERICANS
What is most punishing to Americans is Adelson’s personal love affair with wage suppression, police state surveillance and the huge taxpayer funded subsidies for the wealthy and powerful corporations.
Somehow, supporting Israel now includes filling America with prisons, limiting workers’ rights and endangering their safety, polluting the environment, abandoning wounded war veterans while giving financial criminals a free hand.
If anything, this is Adelson’s real agenda. What we may well assume also, just as Christie has, what is Adelson’s agenda is also the Zionist agenda.
As Adelson sees it, the wrath he wishes on the Palestinian people he also works to bring down on the American people as well.
At least Adelson is open about it when he laughs in America’s face. The politicians he buys and sells are not so honest in their dishonesty.
Yousef al-Shawamrah, 14, was shot in the back and hip with live ammunition near his village of Deir al-Asal al-Fawqa, which sits alongside Israel’s separation barrier, on March 19.
Shawamrah left home around 6:30 a.m. to forage for wild thistle, used in Palestinian cooking, along with two friends, 12-year-old Zahi and 17-year-old Muntaser. The boys planned to look for thistle in an area of land belonging to the village that now sits on the other side of the separation barrier.
As they crossed the barrier soldiers fired three shots without warning, Muntaser told DCI-Palestine in a sworn testimony. Another two bullets were fired, which hit Shawamrah in the hip and back as he tried to return through the barrier. Six soldiers, dressed in black fatigues and black face masks, then emerged from a group of olive trees less than 70 meters away, according to Muntaser.
An Israeli army spokesperson speaking to Ma’an News Agency alleged that the boys were attempting to sabotage Israel’s separation barrier, and “soldiers at the scene called them to distance themselves” before firing at their lower extremities. The Israeli military has yet to return Shawamrah’s body.
Eighty-five percent of the separation barrier and its planned route is located within the occupied West Bank and not along the Green Line, according to B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization. It results in grave violations of Palestinian rights by severely restricting freedom of movement, restricting access to private land and crucial services.
Shawamrah is the second Palestinian child killed from live ammunition fired by Israeli forces this year, according to data collected by DCI-Palestine. Over 1,400 Palestinian children have been killed as a result of Israeli military and settler presence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory since 2000.
“According to the Israeli army’s own regulations, the use of live ammunition is only justified in circumstance of mortal danger,” said Rifat Kassis, executive director of DCI-Palestine.
“When a 14-year-old is shot with two live bullets from a distance of less than 100 meters, it must be presumed that the standard has not been met and the perpetrator must be held accountable.”
Shawamrah’s companions were detained briefly by the Israeli military and claim they were subject to ill-treatment. Muntaser told DCI-Palestine that he and Zahi were handcuffed, blindfolded and taken to a nearby Israeli settlement, where they were beaten after failing to respond to questions posed in Hebrew, which neither speaks.
They were transferred to an Israeli police station in the Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba where they were interrogated, fingerprinted and had their pictures taken by Israeli authorities. At 5:00 p.m., 11 hours after they set out to pick thistle, they were dropped off at the Ramadin checkpoint, about seven kilometers (over four miles) from their homes.
Rifat Kassis added: “Once again, we are seeing the deadly consequences connected to the hyper-militarized environment of Israel’s prolonged occupation, in which children being children is enough to get them killed.”
To date, this shocking incident has not been covered by the BBC. In contrast, in the week prior to Yousef’s killing, BBC Online reported extensively on rockets fired out of Gaza, which resulted in no fatalities.
Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) wrote to BBC Online to ask why it had not even mentioned Israel’s killing of a Palestinian child, let alone report on it fully. We were told: “There is no mandate to report every killing.”
Once more, the BBC appears to be taking the position that the life of a Palestinian is worth less than that of an Israeli.
