15 May 2014 ~ Second Update
Russia will hold Massive Air Combat Drills along Ukraine border on Ukraine Presidential Election Day ~ link ~ Don't forget in late June and July, there will be a massive NATO multi-nation army inside of the Ukraine for 'war games'...Putin has to act BEFORE this happens, if he is going to act!!! Stirling
Just in case the message was unclear when Russia held its "massive nuclear attack" drill last week, Putin - unlike Obama who has had a problem with clarifying over the past three months just what "costs" means - intends to hammer the point ten days from today when Ukraine is set to hold its presidential elections, when the Russian military has scheduled to hold yet another military drill, "Aviadarts 2014", this time involving fighter jets (including as Su-27, Su-24, Su -25, Su-34 and MiG-29 jets and Mi-8 , Mi-24 , Mi-28, Ka-52 helicopters) and will see the participation of 71 crews of military aircraft and helicopters rehearsing the "countering of enemy air defenses, destruction of ground targets and carpet bombing enemy territory." Somehow we think Ukraine (and NATO) will get this particular message loud and clear.
And just in case Russian military engagements were not enough, RIA also reported that a Russian Pacific Fleet squadron, led by the guided-missile cruiser Varyag, sailed from Vladivostok on Wednesday to participate in the Russia-China exercises Naval Interaction-2014, a military spokesman told RIA Novosti.
The squadron, which also includes the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev, the large amphibious ship Admiral Nevelskoy, the destroyer Bystry, the tanker Ilim and the sea-going tugboat Kalar, is heading to Shanghai, said Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov.
Blackwater mercenaries direct Kiev coup junta regime's crackdown in the Ukraine ~ link ~
Hundreds of US mercenaries are directing the repression of pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine by the fascist forces of the NATO puppet regime in Kiev, according to German media reports.
They are employed by the firm previously known as Blackwater, a massive private military contracting firm founded by former US Navy SEAL Erik Prince. The firm was renamed Xe in 2009 and then Academi in 2011, trying to evade the infamy attached to its original name due to its massacres of civilians in US-occupied Iraq.
Kiev junta's Israeli protege allegedly behind Mariupol and Odessa massacres - leaked tapes ~ link ~ This oligarch Governor is a dual national Israeli citizen! Once again, tiny racist Israel is involved in horrors all over the world!!! Stirling
Two leaked tapes have emerged on the internet where Kiev-appointed governor allegedly threatens an ex-presidential candidate who called for a referendum. The official may also be behind the Odessa massacre and Mariupol shootings, the leak adds.
On the first tape, which appeared on May 14, an oligarch and governor of the city of Dnepropetrovsk in southeastern Ukraine, Igor Kolomoisky, allegedly called ex-presidential candidate Oleg Tsarev and started threatening him. He told Tsarev to leave Ukraine immediately, saying it was in connection with the killing of Bogdan Shlemkevich, a soldier from Ukraine’s National Guard on May 9 in Mariupol, southeastern Ukraine. He was shot in clashes between anti-government protesters and soldiers sent by Kiev in an ‘antiterrorist’ operation in eastern Ukraine.
The Dnepropetrovsk governor says that now Tsarev and his family will be hunted down and killed.“They put $1 million for your head, they will go after you everywhere,” Kolomoisky told him. “Tomorrow they will look for your people and relatives,” said the Ukrainian oligarch.
Donetsh self-defense forces give Kiev junta's troops 24 hours to withdraw ~ link ~ Donetsk self-defense forces set an ultimatum for the Kiev military, warning that if troops do not withdraw from block posts in the Donetsk region within 24 hours, they will be taken by force, RIA Novosti reported.
Sweden strengthens military in response to the Ukraine Crisis ~ link ~ Such warlike language is directed at Russia and is part of a deliberate plan of escalation by the military and ruling circles over the past year, in alliance with US imperialism and its western NATO allies.
Syria War: Deadly blast near Turkey border crossing ~ link ~
At least 43 people have been killed in a car bombing near the border between Syria and Turkey, activists say. A car filled with explosives was reportedly blown up in the Karaj Sajou area, near the Bab al-Salam crossing in the northern province of Aleppo. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that five women and three children were among the dead.
Amid diplomatic offensive against Syria, France presses for WAR ~ link ~ Don't let the Crisis in the Ukraine take your eyes off of Syria and Iran...two main targets of the Globalists and Zionists! Stirling
During an official visit to Washington on Tuesday, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said he regretted that Washington had not gone to war with Syria last autumn and again advanced unsubstantiated accusations that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used chemical weapons against the Syrian people.
In making these accusations, Fabius was directly pressing for war in Syria. He recalled US President Barack Obama’s “red line” pledge to go to war if Assad used chemical weapons. Falsely claiming that the Syrian regime had used poison gas last August in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, Fabius said he regretted that France could not go to war with Syria because Washington and London decided not to attack Syria in September.
US General Martin Dempsey: Syrian militants need more to oust Assad ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ Just WHY is it in the interest of the American people to do that??? Stirling
The militants have no force capable of waging attacks against the Assad government and "and we're not on a path currently to provide that," Gen. Dempsey said Wednesday at the Atlantic Council, a NATO-oriented think tank in Washington DC.
Fast Food Workers bite back with worldwide May 15 strike ~ link ~ More power to them! Stirling May 15th has been declared a global day of solidarity for fast food workers in 150 US cities and 33 countries who will be holding rallies in an effort to boost the minimum wage to $15 per hour and other demands.
Germany preparing Gold-backed Nordic Euro ~ link ~ Europe is the grand prize. And it’s always been the grand prize. Well, due to NATO and World War II considerations, the United States is pretty much captured, colonized, integrated Europe. That’s about to change.
I think Europe is going to turn its attention eastward.
They have a parade of gold-backed currencies coming. It’s not just going to be the Russian Ruble or the Chinese Yuan. It will involve the Gulf Dinar, with the Saudis. I think it will involve the Nordic Euro.
Are Russia and China about to announce the End of the US Dollar Era? ~ link ~
Countries all over the world are meeting for a purpose that concerns you greatly, whether or not you're American: disuse of the US dollar.
Since the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis the end of the US dollar seems closer than ever. In move-after-move, Russia and China have become closer allies. There are numerous examples of this. For brevity's sake, two recent examples catch the eye. Gazprom issued bonds in the Chinese Yuan and Russia and China also signed a gas deal. There are many more examples. 40 central banks have even placed bets on the yuan as the future reserve currency.
Until 2014 tales of dollar collapse seemed to be for conspiracy nuts, as geopolitics only faintly reflected this seeming reality. This year, that all has changed. It seems nation-states the world over are making moves towards a post-US Dollar world. It is not a matter of "if," but "when," and if you don't understand this coming-to-pass you will be in for quite the shock...and awe.
The FCC just approved a Proposal THAT WILL COMPLETELY CHANGE THE INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT ~ link ~ Also see: FCC moves forward with new Net Neutrality Rules amid protests ~ link ~ There is an old saying, "The Devil is in the details". At the end of the day, just watch, this will be used against the Alternative News Media. The powers that be absolutely hate the fact that people can get around their mainstream news media propgandia.

Cities all over America are becoming extremely cruel to the Homeless ~ link ~ Have you ever given food to a homeless person? Well, if you do it again in the future it might be a criminal act depending on where you live. Right now, there are dozens of major U.S. cities that have already passed laws against feeding the homeless. As you will read about below, in some areas of the country you can actually be fined hundreds of dollars for just trying to give food to a hungry person. I know that sounds absolutely insane, but this is what America is turning into. Communities all over the country are attempting to "clean up the streets" by making it virtually illegal to either be homeless or to help those that are homeless. Instead of spending more money on programs to assist the homeless, local governments are bulldozing tent cities and giving homeless people one way bus tickets out of town. We are treating some of the most vulnerable members of our society like human garbage, and it is a national disgrace.
GMO producers should be punished as terrorists, Russian MPs say ~ link ~ Damn right they should be!!! Stirling
A draft law submitted to the Russian parliament seeks to impose punishment up to criminal prosecution to producers of genetically-modified organisms harmful to health or the environment.
The draft legislation submitted on Wednesday amends Russia's law regulating GMOs and some other laws and provides for disciplinary action against individuals and firms, which produce or distribute harmful biotech products and government officials who fail to properly control them.
At worst, a criminal case may be launched against a company involved in introducing unsafe GMOs into Russia. Sponsors of the bill say that the punishment for such deeds should be comparable to the punishment allotted to terrorists, if the perpetrators act knowingly and hurt many people.
