WikiLeaks : NSA Spied Not Just On Merkel But Also On Several German Ministers

MI6 cross-dressers shaft fellow Nazis; Merkel gets taste of own Gestapo tactics, EU criminals begin to feed on each other as their bogus empire collapses at hands of Greek patriots

The latest release from WikiLeaks shows that a massive espionage by the US National Security Agency was not limited to Chancellor Angela Merkel but also included several of her ministers, according to phone numbers shared with German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung.


Will Merkel still be playing kissy-face with Obama
this time around?
Classified as highly sensitive, being "two levels above top secret," the data was still cleared for distribution among the "US-led 'Five Eyes' spying alliance of UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

In fact, the latest list shows the spying focused more on economy issues, rather than on security, with the snooping checking on the German stance on Greek bailout plan, amongst other issues. Most of the telephone numbers belong to the finance and agriculture ministry, and those responsible for European policy, besides a few economic advisors.


Another key aspect of the exposed espionage deals with the handling of the Greek debt crisis, as revealed in "intercepted talk between Chancellor Merkel and her assistant". 

The NSA was given a German intercept, gathered by British Intelligence (GCHQ), on the German position ahead of negotiations about a bailout plan for Greece.


EU Nazis, IMF, bank criminals begin to feed on each other as the inevitable end nears

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' embattled editor-in-chief, asked in a statement in Wednesday's release, "Would France and Germany have proceeded with the BRICS bailout plan for Greece if this intelligence was not collected and passed to the United States - who must have been horrified at the geopolitical implications?"

The list of 69 phone numbers belonging to ministers and senior officials dates back to between 2010 and 2012.


Evil personified: IMF, EU bank criminals once more attempt to rape the defenceless elderly, disabled and poor in Greece, attacking a target they know cannot resist

Some numbers are still active after the ministers quit office. One such was former finance minister Oskar Lafontaine, who quit in 1999.

Current economy minister and vice-chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, was among those spied, but he had been in the opposition at that time.


Obama's feral NSA scum busted once again

The NSA was also interested in Merkel's discussions of the positions of French leaders, and of the heads of the key institutions of the Troika: European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet and IMF Director Christine Lagarde with regard to the Greece bailout, says the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.




Merkel had reacted strongly after the initial revelations and told US President Barack Obama that "spying between friends just isn't on."

WAYNE MADSEN : Australia Annexed A Self - Governing Territory As The World Remained Silent

Colonialism alive and well in Abbott government  

WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
By Wayne Madsen
07/01/2015

When Ukraine threatened the autonomous status of Crimea, the people of that territory on March 16, 2014 voted in a popular referendum to declare independence from Ukraine and apply to join the Russian Federation as an autonomous republic. The results of the referendum were overwhelmingly for independence and retrocession to Russia with 96.7 percent of eligible voters opting for separation from Ukraine. 


The Mighty Tony Bligh, Captain of the HMS
Australia
The West howled at the referendum and its results. The European Union, Canada, and the United States slapped punitive sanctions on Crimean and Russian political leaders, companies, and institutions. 

Compare the overwhelming desire of the people of Crimea for separation from Ukraine and accession to the Russian Federation with how Australia has recently treated the self-governing territory of Norfolk Island, located in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand and the full story of the West’s total and utter hypocrisy comes to light.


Norfolk Island’s population of 2300 could not be more different than that of Australia. Norfolk Island has its own flag, in which the famous Norfolk Island pine tree is depicted; its own post office that issues its own stamps; its own national holiday, Bounty Day; and its own official language, Norfuk, which is a patois of English and Tahitian, known as Pitkern, originally spoken by the mutinous descendants of the HMS Bounty. 

In 1979, Australia granted Norfolk Island self-government, with an elected Legislative Assembly enacting laws for the island. However, Australia’s Norfolk Island Act of 1979 placed restraints on Norfolk Island’s self-government.




Australia, could, at will, override Norfolk Island legislation with Australian law. In 1977, the Norfolk Island Council, after being advised of the Australian government’s plans to incorporate the island into Australia, petitioned the United Nations to intervene. The Council reasoned that without a popular referendum on incorporation, Australia’s plans were a violation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Australia, chose not to apply the covenants to Norfolk Island. 

Nevertheless, after the enactment of the self-government act of 1979, Norfolk Island enjoyed a degree of self-government not enjoyed by Australia’s other external territories, including Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas Island, Lord Howe Island, and the Torres Strait Islands. Australians and foreigners, before Norfolk Island’s illegal annexation by Canberra, required a passport to enter Norfolk Island.


Kingston, capital of Norfolk Island

Norfolk Island is a member of international sporting organizations and Norfolk Island teams have marched under their own flag at the Commonwealth Games. Norfolk Island is also a member of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, and its Chief Minister, equivalent to a Prime Minister, has represented the island in Australian and international forums. Assisting the Chief Minister in self-governance was a Cabinet composed of a Minister for Tourism, Industry and Development; a Minister for Finance; a Minister for Cultural Heritage and Community Services; and a Minister for the Environment.

Norfolk Island enjoyed its autonomous status until March 19, 2015, when the right-wing Australian government of Prime Minister Tony Abbott unilaterally revoked the self-government of Norfolk Island and attached it administratively to the state of New South Wales. The Abbott regime had decided to revoke the island’s self-governance because Norfolk Island, like many governments around the world, including Greece, Iceland, have been wracked by the effects of austerity and unscrupulous bank lending practices. Norfolk Island, no longer benefitting from tourism revenue, went broke. 




When Norfolk Island decided to become an offshore banking center and legalize medical cannabis, both vetoed by the Australian colonial representative on the island, in order to replace the revenue sacrificed by the tourism slump, the Abbott regime began plotting their takeover of the island. Rather than work cooperatively with the long-established self-government institutions of the island, Abbott and his government in Canberra simply abolished them.

In November 2014, Abbott and his ministers went out of their way to snub Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Brisbane. One of the bones of contention was the referendum that saw Crimea return to Russia. Abbott even threatened to "shirt front" Putin, that is, physically assault him, during the G20. 


Abbott "shirtfronting"  Putin

While the Western leaders at the G20 Summit condemned Russia for recognizing the self-determination of Crimea and supporting the self-government desires of the Russian-speaking people of Donetsk and Lugansk in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, Abbott and his ministers, in violation of every principle of international law, were plotting to seize control of Norfolk Island from the elected government and its citizenry.

On May 8, 2015, the people of Norfolk Island held a referendum, which was not that much different than the referendum held in Crimea. The referendum question asked whether Norfolk Islanders should "freely determine their political status and their economic, social and cultural development" and "be consulted at referendum or plebiscite on the future model of governance for Norfolk Island before such changes are acted upon by the Australian parliament." The referendum passed with 68 percent voting in favor. Australia and the Abbott regime ignored the results of the vote and continued to undemocratically absorb Norfolk Island into New South Wales and Australia.




Australia maintains that Norfolk Island is an integral part of Australia, notwithstanding the 1979 Act and several declarations by Australian delegations to UN specialized agencies that Norfolk Island is a dependent territory of Australia. In every definition of the international law concept of an external dependent territory, Norfolk Island deserves to be added to the UN’s list of non-self-governing territories and Australia should be forced to develop a schedule for decolonization of Norfolk Island. Australia’s disingenuous stance on Norfolk Island resulted in the island not being places on the UN Decolonization Committee’s official list of non-self-governing territories. Norfolk Islanders believe their country should be on the UN list because they contend that Queen Victoria granted the island independence when Britain decided to resettle the people of Pitcairn on Norfolk Island in 1856.

Australia has used its tremendous diplomatic clout to deny Norfolk Island a hearing before either the United Nations or the International Court of Justice. Norfolk Island Chief Minister Lisle Snell, who was tossed from his office as a result of Australia’s unilateral action, declared the results of the referendum displayed for the world Australia’s perfidy. Snell said, "the referendum results blow a hole in Canberra's assertion that the reforms introduced before the Australian Parliament that propose abolishing the Legislative Assembly and Norfolk Island Parliament were overwhelmingly supported by the people of Norfolk Island." 


In other words, as far as Australia and its surveillance-oriented FIVE EYES intelligence partners of the United States, Canada, Britain, and New Zealand are concerned, the people of Norfolk Island and Crimea do not deserve their referendum decisions to be recognized by the world community. 

However, unlike Russia, which did recognize the will of the people of Crimea, Australia has rejected the will of the people of Norfolk Island. 


And unlike Russia, Australia has not been subject to crippling international sanctions for its political and diplomatic aggression against Norfolk Island.

Australia riled Norfolk Island’s elected leaders when it informed them they would have to vacate their government offices by midnight on June 16. The new de facto leader of Norfolk Island is Regional Development Minister Jamie Briggs, an anti-labor union crony of Abbott. After Norfolk Island Legislative Assembly Speaker David Buffett railed against Canberra’s seizure of power on the island, Briggs informed Buffett that he was fired from the Canberra-appointed replacement for the elected Legislative Assembly, the "Community Advisory Council."

Norfolk Island’s appeals to the world to condemn Australia’s illegal annexation have gone unheard. At the very least, sanctions, including visa bans and foreign asset freezes, should be imposed on Australian leaders like Abbott, Briggs, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, Attorney George Brandis, Finance Minister Matthias Cormann, and Governor General Peter Cosgrove, among others. The "quislings" appointed by Briggs to the rump unelected Community Advisory Council should also face international sanctions, including travel bans. Norfolk Island, populated by the descendants of British Royal Navy officers and enlisted men who mutinied against the tyrannical Captain William Bligh, do not need Tony Abbott and his cronies in Canberra reprising the dictatorial roles of Bligh and his loyalists on the HMS Bounty.

CNN : Obama White House Lied "We Didn’t Know About Hillary’s Private Email"

CNN deviants, frauds and hacks should all be stripped of any protections under the Shield Law, hauled before a grand jury, immunised and compelled to reveal "sources" and hand over all material on Clinton  

WASHINGTON'S BLOG
By Eric Zuesse
07/02/2015

On July 1st, CNN reported that “President Barack Obama’s top aides, including David Axelrod, communicated with Hillary Clinton at her private email address while she was secretary of state,” and that, “Obama officials — including Axelrod — had said they were unaware Clinton was using a personal email address.” 


CNN provided no linked source for their allegation that Axelrod didn’t know (nor juxtaposed his statement which contradicted it); however, what CNN said there was indeed accurate, so far as it went, as one can tell simply by clicking onto this link:

That video, dated June 17th, shows Axelrod’s response after Obama’s former Chief of Staff Bill Daley had said that he had “had no idea” that Secretary of State Clinton was using a private email for her State Department business. 



Axelrod said (1:07): “I confess, … I was the senior advisor; I didn’t know.” He was then asked “If you did find out when you were there, …?” and he promptly replied, “I might have asked a few questions about this.” 

So: He had outright lied when he said “I didn’t know.” He did know. CNN refused to point this lying out. Not only that, but though CNN’s report did mention this video (which was from MSNBC), they provided no link to it (such as I just did), and therefore they offered no way that CNN’s audience could come to know that Axelrod had, in fact, lied about this matter.




The present report, “CNN: Obama White House Lied ‘We Didn’t Know About Hillary’s Private Email’,” is thus not about what CNN said to its audience; it is instead about the reality that CNN was actually hiding from its audience, except for from those who (like the present reporter) would devote the effort and time to dig further in order to find out what the real story was, behind the mush that CNN reported to its audience.

The major news story here turned out to be “CNN: Obama White House Lied ‘We Didn’t Know About Hillary’s Private Email’,” and was not really CNN’s headlined ‘news’ report, which was: “Clinton emails: Obama aides knew of private address.”


White House pays CNN to lie, shill, cover-up for
their crimes
This fact, of CNN’s hiding the Obama Administration’s lies on this matter, indicates that CNN is covering for the White House, more than actually covering the White House. CNN is actually a propaganda agency, not a news agency. It hides the incriminating evidence, instead of exposing it (as I just did here). So, yet another headline for the present news report could be: “CNN Protects the Obama White House.” 


That’s another important truth from this same information. And it, too, is an important thing for CNN’s audience to know about CNN.

So, perhaps the best headline for this article would be: “CNN Hides Obama Administration Lie.” But regardless, you now know the most important things which CNN reported, and you also know what CNN was covering up there — and what its cover-up says about CNN.


CNN hires fraud junkies like Natalie Allen and the Central Park deviant methhead Richard Quest to bring Americans their daily dose of propaganda and lies

In order to be fully informative, I should also state that I had voted for Obama as the lesser of two evils, both times when he was running; I am definitely not a Republican, and I make a clear distinction between Republican attacks against Obama from his right (which are lies and distortions about him), versus progressive attacks against Obama from his left (which are true statements about his real conservatism — such as about his remarkable mendacity, basic to all conservatives and to conservatism itself). 


Central Park fruit Richard Quest; and
Americans trust this tweaker to bring
them "news?"
Around 60% of Americans are to Obama’s left, but around 70% of oligarchs are to his right. Any ‘democracy’ that offers as its realistic electoral ‘choices’ only candidates like that, who are agents for the aristocracy, constitutes itself an oligarchy, no authentic democracy at all, because all of the realistic choices are oligarchic; none is authentically democratic. 

The U.S. is therefore no longer a democracy, and it has the press (such as CNN) that one expects in such a place. 

The press, in any dictatorship, ‘report’ that the government represents the public. The U.S. is just another dictatorship, so it ‘reports’ that it’s not. 


CNN frauds and Obama/Clinton protectors, cover-up artists and shills all need to be prosecuted and imprisoned

But that’s not part of this news story; it is instead the story’s context.

5,000 Evacuated In Tennessee After Train Crash Releases Toxic Fumes

American infrastructure now below third world country standards   

AGENCIES
07/03/2015

More than 5,000 people in eastern Tennessee have been evacuated after a freight train carrying “highly flammable and toxic gas” derailed and caught fire on Thursday morning.


Seven firefighters have been taken to hospital after breathing in fumes from the blaze, while a 1-mile evacuation zone has been put in place around where the train came off the tracks.

“They are receiving treatment in the emergency room at Blount Memorial Hospital. At the time, some of them were pretty close to the scene of the derailment, while others were knocking on doors and evacuating residents,” said a Blount County Sheriff’s spokeswoman, Marian O’Briant who was speaking to NBC News.


Officials have put the number evacuated at 5,000; however, other sources are saying the figure is nearer to 1,200.

“Evacuation time could last anywhere from 24 to 48 hours, but we'll get word out as soon as we can,”O’Briant added.

The train was traveling from Cincinnati to Waycross, Georgia, which is about 80 miles (129km) northeast of Jacksonville.




However, it never reached its final destination after it left the tracks near Maryville, 17 miles (27km) south of Knoxville. Two shelters have been opened in the local area to help those who have temporarily been displaced, a local official said.

The train includes two locomotives, 45 loaded rail cars carrying mixed freight and 12 empty rail cars, said Kristin Seay, from CSX Corporate Communications, which was operating the train.

The train was carrying liquefied petroleum gas and acrylonitrile – a product used in the manufacture of plastics. The United States Environment Protection Agency says that if the substance is inhaled in large quantities, it can cause membrane irritation, headaches and nausea.




O’Briant added that three cars were currently on fire, but it is unknown whether the blaze is under control. The emergency services have not reported any serious injuries.
