White Helmets Member Caught On Camera Disposing Of Syrian Soldiers’ Mutilated Bodies

McCain's mercs losing discipline, getting sloppy

A member of the so-called White Helmets which has been hailed by the western media as ‘peace-bearing heroes’ has been caught on camera helping a group of unidentified militants disposing the bodies of beheaded Syrian Army soldiers.


Caught on camera"  White Helmet mercenaries 
Graphic footage posted on Twitter on June 20 shows a man wearing a T-shirt with the White Helmets logo dumping a pile of bodies, allegedly being that of Syrian Army soldiers or pro-government fighters. The gut-wrenching footage shows that many bodies in the pile are beheaded and one militant even shows a severed head of a soldier up close on camera. “Impartial and humanitarian White Helmets [are] participating in the beheading and throwing of Syrian soldiers bodies at a dumpster in Daraa,” a caption under the video posted on Twitter reads.



Daraa is a southern Syrian province bordering Jordan where several rebel factions as well as Al-Nusra terrorist group and its affiliates are operating.

It remains unclear which militant group was shown in the video disposing of the bodies.




Following the incident, the White Helmets, officially known as the Syria Civil Defense, were quick to release a statement, in which the group’s management condemned the man shown in the video and said they fired him for violating their code of conduct.

The group acknowledged that the filmed man was indeed the member of the White Helmets but said he was “acting independently and not in his capacity as a member of SCD.”

“On 20 June 2017, a volunteer of SCD in Daraa Governorate was witnessed participating in an activity that violated the organizational principles and vision of SCD,” the statement said, adding, that the behavior of the man in question, whose name was not revealed, “constitutes a gross breach of SCD’s Code of Conduct.”




“As a result, the volunteer has been dismissed,” the statement says.

It is not the first time that the White Helmets has been caught in scandals involving their members participating in various atrocities.

In one such incident in May, footage emerged showing several members of the group’s rescue team helping to get rid of a body of a man shot dead by rebels in the town of Jasim, also in Daraa province.

The man was shot during a summary execution carried out by the rebels in front of a large crowd and recorded on camera. The video then shows volunteers from the White Helmets moving in to dispose of the body, Almasdar news website reported at that time.




In May, the White Helmets also quickly released a statement stating that the group’s volunteers “were seen to act improperly and not in accordance with the voluntary Code of Conduct for Syria Civil Defense (SCD) members.”

At that time, the issue appeared to be the fact that the group’s local team leader failed to seek “permission from his superiors before agreeing to the request” to dispose of the body. He was later dismissed.

The White Helmets have long been hailed by the mainstream western media as heroes who save lives. A Netflix documentary film praising the group as “unarmed and neutral civilian volunteers” even won an Oscar for best documentary short feature in February.




The unit has also received praise from Amnesty International, describing it as "a group of neutral, unarmed volunteers.”

However, the group has long been plagued by allegations of having ties with terrorist groups. Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said in April that the White Helmets are involved in covering up terrorist’s crimes.

“The White Helmets not only feel at home on territories controlled by Al-Nusra Front and Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL], but also openly express positive attitudes towards them, providing them with information and even financial assistance,” she said at the time.

A Canadian journalist and rights activist, Eva Bartlett, who has traveled to Syria numerous times since the start of the war, has also questioned the authenticity of the White Helmets’ claims concerning their ‘rescue effort’ mandate.




Members of the group “purport to be rescuing civilians in eastern Aleppo and Idlib [but]… no one in eastern Aleppo has heard of them,” she said in an address to the UN in December 2016.

Vanessa Beeley, an independent researcher and journalist, told RT in October 2016 that “there is massive video and photographic testimonial evidence from inside Syria to give evidence that they are running a terrorist support group.”

She particularly pointed out that the group is “embedded entirely in terrorist-held areas whether it is predominantly Al-Nusra Front or ISIS or any of the various associated brigades of terrorists.”


CNN White Helmet/terrorist supporters will be charged with war crimes

The residents of Aleppo have described the group as “camera posers, thieves, and raiders,” who are only interested in releasing dramatic videos. “When they came to help the injured they stole from them,”one elderly man told RT’s war correspondent Lizzie Phelan in December 2016. “If people are wearing jewelry, they cut it off. All of them are thieves.”

Senate Announces Probe Of Loretta Lynch Behavior In 2016 Election

Immunise, compel testimony, hand down indictments including CNN accessories    

THE WASHINGTON TIMES
By Stephen Dinan
06/23/2017

The Senate Judiciary Committee has opened a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to shape the FBI’s investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the committee’s chairman announced Friday.


In a letter to Ms. Lynch, the committee asks her to detail the depths of her involvement in the FBI’s investigation, including whether she ever assured Clinton confidantes that the probe wouldn’t “push too deeply into the matter.” Fired FBI Director James B. Comey has said publicly that Ms. Lynch tried to shape the way he talked about the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails, and he also hinted at other behavior “which I cannot talk about yet” that made him worried about Ms. Lynch’s ability to make impartial decisions.


Mr. Comey said that was one reason why he took it upon himself to buck Justice Department tradition and reveal his findings about Mrs. Clinton last year.

The probe into Ms. Lynch comes as the Judiciary Committee is already looking at President Trump’s firing of Mr. Comey.

Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the committee, said the investigation is bipartisan. The letter to Ms. Lynch is signed by ranking Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and also by Sens. 




Letters also went to Clinton campaign staffer Amanda Renteria and Leonard Benardo and Gail Scovell at the Open Society Foundations. Mr. Benardo was reportedly on an email chain from the then-head of the Democratic National Committee suggesting Ms. Lynch had given assurances to Ms. Renteria, the campaign staffer, that the Clinton probe wouldn’t “go too far.”

At a Senate hearing earlier this month, Mr. Comey told lawmakers that Ms. Lynch had attempted to change the way the FBI described its probe of Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server. The change appeared to dovetail with how Mrs. Clinton’s supporters were characterizing the probe.


Clinton: What goes around comes around

“At one point, [Ms. Lynch] directed me not to call it an ‘investigation’ but instead to call it a ‘matter,’ which confused me and concerned me,” Mr. Comey said during his June 8 testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we are to close this case credibly.”

Acknowledging that he didn’t know whether it was intentional, Mr. Comey said Ms. Lynch’s request “gave the impression the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our investigation with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity.”


CNN frauds and Clinton cover-up artists must be held accountable as accessories 

Mr. Comey said the language suggested by Ms. Lynch was troublesome because it closely mirrored what the Clinton campaign was using. Despite his discomfort, Mr. Comey said, he agreed to Ms. Lynch’s language.

Refugee Crisis Is Sucking Europe Dry

Plan by EU "elites," banksters to import slave labor implodes  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Grete Mautner
06/23/2017

In spite of the widespread xenophobia, political populism, and numerous instances of barbed wire fences being installed along the EU borders, the flow of refugees to Europe has been growing steadily.


As it’s been reported by the Bild with a special reference to an undisclosed report drafted by the European intelligence agencies, a total of 6.6 million refugees in the Mediterranean countries are awaiting the opportunity to carry on their journey to Europe. 

About 3.3 million refugees that are planning to reach Europe at some point the future are residing in Turkey, another 720,000 found temporary refuge in Jordan, another million can be traced in Egypt and Libya, 160,000 in Tunisia, and 430,000 in Algeria.


A total 55% of all migrants arriving by sea to the EU are natives of Nigeria, Bangladesh, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire and the Gambia. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Spokesman, Babar Baloch more than 1,700 migrants suffered fatal injuries when they were trying to reach Europe by crossing the Mediterranean Sea.

While Baloch notes that rescuing lives remains a top priority of the EU, he’s convinced that there must be reliable alternatives to these dangerous sea routes for those people who have found themselves in dire need of international protection. According to Baloch, if a person wants to reunite with his family in Europe or gets resettled he must have a safe way to do it.

However, the measures taken by the EU to accommodate arriving migrants have recently faced harsh opposition in a number of member states.




Thus, most Germans believe that Germany has already exhausted its capabilities to accommodate new migrants. The west of the country, where to the problem is more apparent than in the east, you can often encounter skeptical attitudes towards the policies Berlin pursues, says the Die Welt. Mayors of German cities and communities, whose budgets were exhausted by the expenditures on the accommodation and consequent integration of more than a million refugees, are demanding the Chancellor to get more funds their way, since a part of the costs they suffered was not compensated, reports the Bild.

The sitting Chancellor of Austria, Christian Kern has recently announced the reluctance of his country to take part in the European program design to ensure the relocation of refugees. Prior to that, the Austrian Minister of Defense and Sports, Hans Peter Doskozil urged the state to abandon the accommodation program, since Austria has already exceeded the initial quota of asylum seekers that it was willing to accommodate.

The Czech government has made it pretty clear that it’s not going to be a part of the above mentioned EU program. As it’s been stressed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Czech Republic, after the latest string of terrorist attacks in Europe, the security situation has changed drastically while the distribution system does not work. Brussels assumed that the Czech Republic would be capable to accommodate 2,691 migrants, the Deutsche Welle reported. Yet, according to Reuters, so far the Czechs have provided shelter to a total of ten people.




Polish interior minister Mariusz Blaschak is also convinced that against the backdrop of the growing danger of terrorist attacks, Europe should close its doors for the Muslim migrants arriving from North Africa and the Middle East. In his opinion, multiculturalism contradicts Christian values, while undermining the roots of the European. Blashchak has been pretty verbal in his criticism of the European Commission and the former Polish authorities for their cooperation they provided within the framework of the resettlement program. At the same time, according to the statement of the Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Konrad Szymanski, Warsaw has even promised to block the project of the EU budget if Brussels carries on insisting on the admission of new groups of migrants from Africa and the Middle East to Poland.

Hungary has also publicly expressed its negative attitude towards the migration policies that the EU pursues. Thus, in a recent interview with the Hungarian pro-government newspaper Magyar Idök, Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban has pointed out that there’s a link between the migration crisis and the Central European University sponsored by Soros, noting that George Soros has been pushing for the accommodation of a massive number of migrants via the political structures he established in Hungary.




In order to address today’s disproportion in the number of migrants every country accommodates, the European Commission is planning to introduce a number of penal procedure to stimulate Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic to play by their rules, since those states refuse to accept refugees arriving from Italy and Greece, and thus they do not fulfill the redistribution plans approved by Brussels in 2015. The European Commission sent official requests to the governments of all three countries to explain the reason for their failure to accommodate refugees. If within the next two months these countries won’t cave in to the EU demands, the European Commission will demand the EU court, which has the right to oblige violators to comply with the demands of Brussels and subject states to fines to pass its ruling on this case.

According to the UNHCR report Global Trends: Forced Displacement that was released back in 2016, so far Turkey (2.9 million refugees), Pakistan (1.4 million people) and Lebanon (1 million refugees) accommodated the largest number of refugees. As for the European countries, Germany holds the first place with 669,000 received, followed by France with 304,000 migrants received and Sweden 230,000 migrants received.




Taking into account Turkey’s continuous demands to get a compensation for the accommodation of refugees, the Bild has recently published a detailed explanation, pointing out that the European Union has already paid Turkey even more than it was supposed to, and this whole situation is extremely beneficial for Turkey.

As follows from the report of the European Commission, that was originally intended for internal use only, at the moment the EU has approved the transfer of 1.5 billion euros to Turkey out of the 3 billion it was bound to pay in accordance with the agreement Brussels and Ankara reached. Out of this sum, a total of 660 million euros was to be received by Turkish ministries, including 300 million euros that were to be allocated to the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education, and another 60 million to the Office for Refugees. So far, Europe has transferred 811.4 million euros, with a total of 222 million euros going into the pockets of the Turkish government. This effectively make Turkey the second largest beneficiary of EU financial assistance, with the UN World Food Program only getting more funds from Brussels. At the same time, the European Commission emphasizes that this transfer intended for refugees and their accommodation, and not for Turkey and its government.
