World Jewish Values Network WaPo Ad: Trump, Bomb Syria!

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 15:46
When the crematorium news made the rounds earlier this week I noticed and stated..
"We're getting into Holocaust™ territory with this claim. Reinforcing well known, well worn mind viruses"flashback:  Assad's (Hitler) Crematorium Claims the US

Keep that specific spin in mind as you read the next item up for your perusal.
 The Jews (self-identified) say"President Trump: When you're in Israel Next Week- You'll be 140 miles from the Syria Crematoria (that most likely doesn't exist) For the Love of God (WTF?) Bomb it Now.
Directly below is the ad placed in WaPo by this Jewish values organization.

Exactly what kind of values do these people have?

Link: PR WEB Releases
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2017 The World Values Network (WVN), an organization that aims to advance America’s standing through the dissemination of Jewish values in politics, culture, and media, posted a full-page advertisement in WaPo’s Friday, May 19th edition publicly challenging President Trump to bomb the functioning Syrian Crematoria.It's  extremely highly unlikely this claimed crematoria exists- The evidence was circumstantial. ie: concocted. Making it very clear Jewish interests want Trump to bomb Syria- Period!
"Clearly delineated as an anti-genocide plan, the WVN stresses that this initiative is critical given Syria’s relevance and close proximity to the Jewish State.
The advertisement also directly publicized the WVN’s upcoming annual Champions of Jewish Values Awards Gala, which will take place this Sunday night, 21 May, 5pm, at Cipriani 42nd St. The event will pay special tribute to Holocaust survivor, renowned author, political activist, and Nobel Peace Laureate, Elie Wiesel, who recently passed away on the 2nd of July 2016.
The advertisement draws close comparison between the crematoria in Auschwitz 1944, and Syria 2017, and along with Wiesel’s personal relation to the Holocaust, the WVN urges President Trump to carry out what it sees as an obligatory humanitarian mission"Pay attention to those they are honouring at their gala of despicableness.

World Values Network’s Discovery Chairman and CEO David Zaslav will be offering a special verbal and video tribute to Mr. Wiesel at the gala, and will introduce the evening’s Keynote Speaker, Elisha Wiesel, who will present the Elie Wiesel Award, which will be presented to Derek Black. Black is a former White Nationalist who, through the guidance and support of his Jewish friend, Matthew Stevenson, shifted his mindset to respect all people equally.
In the Jewish religion, the Kaddish (mourner's prayer) is recited for 11 months after a family member’s death. The last Kaddish for Elie Wiesel will be said by Elisha during a prayer service at the gala.
The gala will also feature many distinguished guests who, while coming from varying backgrounds and occupations, share a unified dedication and affinity for love towards the Jewish people, and all people in today’s world.
President of Rwanda Paul Kagame will be receiving the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Award for Friendship with the Jewish People, presented by Dr. Mehmet Oz of the Dr. Oz TV Show.Paul Kagame is a tyrant and mass murderer

Wife of Elie Weisel- Didn't Mr Weisel fabricate abundantly? Gilad Atzmon: Enough of Elie Wiesel
 "Wiesel can also read Israeli Sever Plocker’s declaration that “some of (the) greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish.”  Just a few years after the Holodomor, the Yiddish speaking International Brigade murdered Catholics and burned their churches in Spain (1936)"That's explains the honouring of Paul Kagame!
What should us non jews think of these so called Jewish values?
These values don't look so hot to me!  
Honouring killers and liars and demanding nations be bombed. All for the benefit of Israel?
As if Israel doesn't have the blood of tens of thousands of Syrians already on it's hands already.
Chutzpah or what?
"The World Values Network will also honor Israel's Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel, Israel’s Consul General of New York, Dani Dayan, Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Danny Danon, Elie Wiesel's wife, Marion Wiesel, former Prime Minister of Spain, Jose Maria Aznar, American Hebrew Academy CEO Glenn Drew, and WVN Chairman Michael Fromm. Master of ceremonies will be Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
The World Values Network has emerged as a seminal organization, whose relentless commitment to promoting Jewish values and advocating for a better future is deeply impactful. It has proven to be uniquely effective in carrying out its mission to instill universal Jewish values in modern politics and culture, as well as defend the State of Israel to the mainstream and international media. In conjunction with world leaders of every walk, it furthers these causes to worldwide audiences through media campaigns, debates, and lectures at venues across the globe"
World Values Network 

Is that the pompous Bernard Henri Levy front and center?
Quotes from their site below:
 "Mission is to disseminate universal Jewish values in politics, culture, and media, making the Jewish people a light unto the nations.World Values Network is dedicated to disseminating the light of the Jewish people and promoting and defending the state of Israel as the supreme embodiment of a nation founded on these principles" Seriously, is their mission some kind of sick cruel joke on the non jew?
What are their values if they honour liars, killers and demand President's to bomb other nations based on lies their partners in values, undoubtedly conjured.

 Truth Exists; Only Lies Are invented.
From where I sit the crematorium lie was invented. It's a hoax.
There is no credible proof that it exists. 

Apparently this is not a first for this group. Haaretz

Times Square Driver US Navy Vet who "heard voices"

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Fri, 05/19/2017 - 07:50
Though the accused has two previous arrests for DWI?
I've been staying away from these incidents, however, drivers plowing over pedestrians is getting to be quite the repetitive occurrence- Just an observation.  
Germany, France, Australia. Off the top of my head that's all I can recall, refresh my memory if there has been more? Toronto looks to be ripe for the picking..

The driver is ex military. 
PTSD? Drunk Driving? Something else entirely? I don't know? 
The thought of these self driving/ self parking, easily commandeered cars just keeps rolling over in my mind

Link- Car hacking is not the future, sorry to say, it's present day.

But what the pair discovered is that if the attacker’s message is sent first, with the correct counter, then the real message gets ignored. And if the next message is one further incremented, then the system never fully goes into lockdown, allowing the attacker to control the car: they can turn the steering wheel, hit the gas or slam on the brakes at any speed.Hindustan Times
A man steered his car onto a sidewalk running through the heart of Times Square and mowed down pedestrians for three blocks Thursday, killing a teenager, then emerged from his wrecked vehicle wild-eyed and waving his arms before he was subdued by police and bystanders. The carnage raised immediate fears of a terrorist attack, but investigators quickly turned their focus to the sobriety and mental health of the driver, identified as Bronx resident Richard Rojas. The driver, a 26-year-old U.S. Navy veteran, told officers he was hearing voices and expected to die, according to two law enforcement officials. Rojas enlisted in the Navy in 2011 and was an electrician’s mate fireman apprentice. In 2012 he served aboard the U.S.S. Carney, a destroyer. He was most recently based at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida, and was discharged in 2014. An Army vet, with a drinking problem,  could be easily employed as a patsy.

US Led Coalition Confirms Strike on SAA and Allies

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 18:01
Outrageous! Trump the peacemaker? Never!
 The US forces in Syria have bombed a militia group fighting alongside the Syrian government forces in southern Syria on Thursday, the US-led coalition has confirmed.

The coalition said in a statement that the Syrian forces "posed a threat" to US and partner troops at Tanf base near the Syria-Iraq-Jordan border.
May 18 #Coalition struck #Syrian pro-regime forces advancing in a de-confliction zone near At Tanf posing a threat to #US partner forces1/3— Inherent Resolve (@CJTFOIR) May 18, 2017"This action was taken after apparent Russian attempts to dissuade Syrian pro-regime movement south towards At Tanf were unsuccessful, a coalition aircraft show of force, and the firing of warning shots," the statement said.
Having commented on the incident, the US Defense Secretary James Mattis said Washington was not deepening its role in the Syrian conflict, but would defend its troops.
#BREAKING US 'not increasing' role in Syrian civil war: Mattis— AFP news agency (@AFP) May 18, 2017 Mattis lying through his teeth, of course.With every action the US takes they say their 'not increasing' their role.Who can take them seriously- All they've done is increase their role. Increase the instability.They instigated this whole stinkin' mess all to remake the region. Grr...

The Syrian forces allegedly entered a so-called "de-confliction" zone in the Homs Governorate, which was perceived as a threat to "US-allied troops." The militia forces allegedly clashed with the Pentagon-backed Maghawir Al-Thawra militant group (formerly known as New Syrian Army), which called in coalition air support.
We notified the coalition that we were being attacked by the Syrian army and Iranians in this point and the coalition came and destroyed the advancing convoy," Reuters cited a militant representative as saying.
#Coalition forces have operated in the At Tanf area for many months training & advising vetted partner forces who are fighting #ISIS.3/3— Inherent Resolve (@CJTFOIR) May 18, 2017US special forces have been present in the area "for many months" to train and advise Free Syrian Army fighters. Damascus considers such Washington's presence illegal in the country, as no official invitation has been extended to the US to conduct any military action on its territory.
If true, this is FRICKIN ILLEGAL. Trump does not have Congressional authorization to attack Syria, a country that has not attacked US.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) May 18, 2017A tank and a bulldozer were hit during the strike, AP reports, citing unnamed US defense officials. There have been unconfirmed reports of casualties on the Syrian side.

According to Al-Masdar News citing the Syrian military, the coalition warplane entered Syrian airspace from the Jordanian border. It reportedly hit a convoy of five tanks, destroying two of them.
Six military personnel were killed and another three injured, Al-Masdar News reported, citing the military.
Congress authorized President to use force in 2 cases: terrorists & Iraq. @realDonaldTrump has NO AUTHORIZATION to attack Syrian regime.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) May 18, 2017The attack does not reflect an escalation in Syria, an unnamed senior US defense official told Fox News, claiming that "there is no change in policy" on Washington's side.
The attacked paramilitary group affiliated with the Syrian army has been given no warning ahead of the strike "in contradiction to what we've heard from the US sources," political commentator from Damascus, Alaa Ibrahim told RT, citing military sources in Syria. "The area where the attack took place has been a scene of a hectic race between the Syrian army and groups affiliated with it and rebel groups backed by the US-led coalition. There have been reports that the US and Britain are preparing for some kind of land incursion," Ibrahim said. This is not a situation that going to improve unless the US gets the hell out of Syria.
 But clearly they are looking to escalate.

Turkey to be 'elephant in the room' at NATO summit

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 12:16
Key Points
  • Turkey's political direction is causing a major headache for NATO
  • The purging of thousands of Turkish officers is damaging the TSK's connections with the alliance
When Turkey and its 27 NATO allies gather in Brussels for their first summit meeting with US president Donald Trump on 25 May, defence burden-sharing and fighting terrorism will be their official agenda items - and, not coincidentally, the two challenges Trump has repeatedly hammered as priorities for NATO. Since the betrayal of Turkey is occurring in plain sight.. for those with eyes to see. Turkey, being the elephant in the room at the next NATO summit is hardly a surprise

Pass the butter: Cutting saturated fat does not reduce heart disease risk

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 09:44
Focus should instead be on eating 'real food,' walking and reducing stress
Real food does not include gallons of pop and piles of fast food.
We’ve talked this topic previously here- what a lie the promotion of saturated fat as detrimental to health was. How it came about? Answer.. Money. Lobbying. The usual.
Wouldn’t doubt that big pharma played a role in this push for massive carb consumption in order to profit from the diabetes epidemic we are now witnessing.
The belief that saturated fat in foods such as butter, cheese and meat clogs arteries is "just plain wrong," a group of cardiologists say in a new editorial.

Instead, the focus should be on eating a Mediterranean-style diet, taking a brisk walk daily and minimizing stress, they say.

After decades of thinking that cutting saturated fat in the diet was associated with lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and death, doctors and researchers now realize there is no association in healthy adults.

Even in people with established heart disease, reducing saturated fat alone doesn't reduce heart attacks, says British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, of Lister Hospital, and an adviser to the U.K. national obesity forum.

"One thing that's very clear when you look at the totality of the evidence: saturated fat does not clog the heart arteries. And sadly, for many years — for decades, in fact — this has been the primary focus of treatment of heart disease and public health advice," Malhotra said in an interview.
Insulin resistance

As a result of warnings about saturated fat, some people shifted their diets towards carbohydrates. But an excess of processed carbs and refined carbs also plays a part in developing cardiovascular diseases.

Eating too much white bread, pasta and potatoes raises blood glucose rapidly, Malhotra said. Our bodies respond to those carbs by producing too much insulin.

When insulin levels are chronically high, the hormone stops being able to do its job of getting glucose into cells to provide energy.

When the body becomes resistant to insulin, an inflammatory response is triggered, said cardiologist Dr. Michael Farkouh, who is the chair of multinational clinical trials at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre at Toronto General Hospital and was not involved in the editorial.

"What this editorial really brought to light was that your diet, if it's a diet rich in carbohydrates, can be associated with what's called insulin resistance," Farkouh said. "That allows your innate inflammatory process in the body to attack the vessel wall and start the process of hardening of the arteries."

I would drink more than [doctors] suggested I should because I do enjoy martinis," Durant recalled. "I was sneaking a bit of ice cream, which I shouldn't. My big cheat: I eat butter."

Durant appreciates butter is no longer considered a "cheat." Now, his typical dinner is half a plate of vegetables, a protein and a carbohydrate — and a dab of butter.

Rather than focus on one nutrient, we should eat whole foods prepared at home with as natural ingredients as possible, said Russell de Souza, a registered dietitian and nutrition epidemiologist at McMaster University in Hamilton.
 So get cookin’. And start growing some of your own food & herbs. This is easily done in containers for those without yards- I actually saw (last summer) an apartment balcony ringed with tomato and pepper plants in containers.  Even a cucumber, which the occupants had put up lattice for the cukes to climb on- I was super impressed.

Help feed the world by feeding yourself as much as possible. You'll feel better, your food will taste better and be vastly more nutritious.

Plants Are Aware When They Are Being Consumed

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 08:55
This news caught my attention. 

Consider it a follow up to: Vegetarian Diet? No Panacea for Environment or Health- Meat Lies Told To Justify Meat Tax

Eating plants also kills the plant. In other words vegetarians are consuming death- plant death- and insect death. Pollinator death. Etc. That's one of the memes regarding meat consumption- "You're eating death"There is no consumption for survival, by any living creature, that does not depend completely on other life being lost. I have no issue with this concept. It’s completely sensible. Plants emit all types of signals/communications. To their pollinators. How do you think pollinators find their plants in need of pollination?. It's not random. Link
Electric signal exchange is likely just one way
Flowers exploit insects to achieve pollination; at the same time insects exploit flowers for food. Insects and flowers are a partnership.
Each insect group has evolved different sets of mouthparts to exploit the food that flowers provide. From the insects' point of view collecting nectar or pollen is rather like fitting a key into a lock; the mouthparts of each species can only exploit flowers of a certain size and shape. Plants use electric fields to communicate with bees, scientists have learned.
Bumblebees are able to find and decipher weak electric signals emitted by flowers, according to the study.
Tests revealed that bees can distinguish between different floral fields, as if they were petal colours. The electric signals may also let the insects know if another bee has recently visited a flower.Why not an awareness with protective response!  It makes sense for survival of the living plant and it's extended family

Experiments show chewing vibrations, but not wind or insect song, cause response
As the cabbage butterfly caterpillar takes one crescent-shaped bite at a time from the edge of a leaf, it doesn’t go unnoticed.

This tiny Arabidopsis mustard plant hears its predator loud and clear as chewing vibrations reverberate through leaves and stems, and it reacts with chemical defenses. Plants have long been known to detect sound, but why they have this ability has remained a mystery.University of Missouri experiments mark the first time scientists have shown that a plant responds to an ecologically relevant sound in its environment. “What is surprising and cool is that these plants only create defense responses to feeding vibrations and not to wind or other vibrations in the same frequency as the chewing caterpillar,” said Heidi Appel, an investigator at MU’s Bond Life Sciences Center and senior research scientist in the Division of Plant Sciences in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. “these plants only create defense responses to feeding vibrations”. Which indicates plants can discern. They can discern threat from non threat and can respond in kind.

Moved by the sound

Recording the sound is just the start.

You can’t put headphones on a leaf, so tiny piezoelectric actuators – essentially a tiny speaker that plays back vibrations instead of airborne sound – is required.

“It’s a delicate process to vibrate leaves the way a caterpillar does while feeding, because the leaf surface is only vibrated up and down by about 1/10,000 of an inch,” Cocroft said. “But we can attach an actuator to the leaf with wax and very precisely play back a segment of caterpillar feeding to recreate a typical 2-hour feeding session.”

Appel and Cocroft tested whether these chewing sounds could create more chemical defenses in the plants and whether these feeding recordings primed defenses when played before an actual caterpillar ate part of a leaf.

“We looked at glucosinolates that make mustards spicy and have anticancer properties and anthocyanins that give red wine its color and provide some of the health benefits to chocolate, Appel said. “When the levels of these are higher, the insects walk away or just don’t start feeding.”

The researchers played 2 hours of silence to some Arabidopsis plants and 2 hours of caterpillar-chewing noises to others. They then chose three leaves around the plant, and allowed caterpillars to eat about a third of each leaf.  After giving the plants 24 to 48 hours to respond to the caterpillar attack, they harvested the leaves for chemical analysis.

When they found higher levels of glucosinolates in the plants that were exposed to chewing vibrations, they knew they were on the right track.

A similar second experiment went further, testing whether the plants would simply respond to any vibration, or whether their response was specific to chewing vibrations. In this case Appel analyzed anthocyanins, which again were elevated – but only when plants had been exposed to chewing vibrations but not to vibrations created by wind or the sounds of a non-harmful insect.

The National Science Foundation seems to agree with the merit of their endeavor, awarding a grant to extend this project.

The next step includes looking at how other types of plants respond to insect predator sounds and pinpointing precisely what features of the sounds trigger the change in plant defenses.

These questions aim to further basic research understanding of how plants know what’s going on to respond appropriately to their environment. This could one day lead to ways to create better plants.
 Sadly, rather then just gaining  better understanding about how it is plants sense and respond, Science, of course, has to manipulate the understanding for ownership and profit- Sickens and angers me to think of this atrocious behaviour - and the stupidity of manipulating plant life “to make better plants”- When we already have the perfect plant life for our needs and the needs of this planet. Including plant pollinators.

Rerun alert! Erdogan "bodyguards" Clash With Protestors?

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 09:08
Wash, rinse, repeat. Wash, rinse, repeat.

This nearly exact type of incident occurred last year- March 2016- It got coverage all over the 5 eyes media- main and alt and it was as contrived, faked and as out of touch with reality as one would imagine any sort of staged psyop could be.

March 31/2016: Staged Provocation of Turkey's Security Detail- Aided by Amnesty International & Brookings

Not even certain if that was actually Turkey's security detail or just a bunch of posers last year.
Check out the no volume videos that made their way around- bolstered by headlines of outrage.
I checked the videos are still accessible.  Presently, just like last year, the Kurd victim meme was at play. Expect 5 eyes media, msm and alt,  to play this up with abundant outrage to boot!

Wash, rinse, repeat and YAWN!

May 17/2017: Erdogan's "bodyguards" Clash with Protestors

According to witnesses, the demonstrators, some carrying the flag of the Kurdish PYD (Democratic Union Party), were attacked by Erdogan's bodyguards outside the Turkish embassy, the Daily Telegraph reports.Video footage on Facebook shows several people, including men dressed in black suits, trading punches.Yup the video shows several men in black suits, no identification of who they are.  No indication how this began. Video appears to begin afterwards- Why wasn't the actual attack shown?
 A women who may or may not be injured- no clue how it happened? Even the security woman says "I'm  not seeing anything"  Where are you hurt? Man with blood, holding cloth to his head- Voice off camera saying "this is a really deep cut" (very briefly shown)  to focus on bloodied  shirt.. lots of confusion I'm not convinced that what is being claimed is what has actually occurred. Already, there is abundant social media coverage, bolstered by 5 eyes coverage...
"Some of the men were seen kicking people as they lay on the ground," claims Buzzfeed News. Demonstrators Flint Arthur told CNN: "They think they can engage in the same sort of suppression of protest and free speech that they engage in in Turkey.Of course David Frum ( Canadian neo- con GWB "axis of evil") joins in with the media psyop
 Footage of the latest incident provoked outrage online. "Why is Erdogan allowed to bring goons with him into the United States?" tweeted David Frum, senior editor of The Atlantic. Blake Hounshell, US editor of Politico magazine, laid the blame for the "insane" incident at the door of President Erdogan
I don't know who the men in suits are? Perhaps their the infamous 'men in black'?
In among the aliens?
Continuing to watch the video- the man with the cloth to his "deep gash" which should probably be stitched if it's so bad appears to be walking around still
And then a monologue.. Nice piece of theatre.
The video continues... more unsubstantiated claims- I've nearly gotten through ten plus minutes.

Narrator continues with an unsubstantiated tale-  Narrator keeps saying ambulance is their caring for people- It's not shown.

Nice neuro linguistic delivery- "here we are" "here we are" "here we are" 
The protestors continue on chanting... guess they aren't really hurt
I've watched 15 minutes and that's it for me.
Sorry folks, I ain't buying what's being sold there

"Sad day for Washington"
"Sad day for Washington"
"Sad day for Washington" 

 Has it been hash tagged yet? Or maybe it will be "here we are"?

UPDATED: As expected this story has racer's legs and is going full tilt!

Washington Times- Alleged Turkish Security ...changed but original is there 
NBC Washington & Irish Independent  Wall Street Journal 
And John McCain, Crazy John McCain, condemns thuggish behaviour
claiming "we don't do this in America" what a moron- America does that and worse in America, all over the world, who the hell is he kidding? - We still have NO verification of who the alleged attackers really were?
Oh well Saddam had nukes and Bashar Assad gassed his own people- Trial by media.

UPDATE # 2: 

"The background of the two men arrested wasn't immediately clear." Translation- Not Turks affiliated with ErdoganAyten Necmi, 49, of Woodside, New York, was charged with aggravated assault, police said, after a woman who was thrown to the ground and kicked identified Necmi as her attacker.
Jalal Kheirabadi, 42, of Fairfax, Virginia, is charged with assaulting a police officer, who refused treatment for lacerations to his face.Kheirabadi told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he joined the demonstration. Kheirabadi said he is a Kurd (who just happened to assault a police officer?)Court paperwork spells his name Kheirabaoi, but he said that is incorrect. The document says he struck an officer in the face...Definitely a psychological operation- Maybe some people got hurt? Maybe. But, it was all for the perception management.

This is just the beginning- the prep for what's going to come out of the Trump/Erdogan meeting

James Petrus: US Betraying Turkey- Remaking the Middle East/Asia/Africa

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 12:21
Someone way more mainstream then myself is saying that which has been said here, yet obfuscated by others, for years.. A sigh of relief. My question is where has Mr Petrus been all these years?  Same as all the other alternative media, missing in action? Why?!
I suppose this means the rest of the so called  (Yes, I'm intending the sarcasm) alt media will finally start talking about the remake the region plan, already long at play?

James Petrus via Dissident Voice
JP: "For the past 20 years Washington has aggressively pursued the age-old imperial strategy of ‘divide and conquer’ throughout the Middle East, Southwest Asia and East Africa"flashback: US Plan to Arm PKK/YPG is a Declaration of War Against Turkey The US arming of the PKK /YPG is indeed an issue of existence or non- existence, a matter of survival for Turkey.  The fact is the USrael doesn’t want Turkey to survive as it is today.
This plan to destroy Turkey, as it has been occurring in plain sight,  is one that has been written about here, for years.
 JP: The US directly invaded Afghanistan expecting to easily conquer and ‘neatly’ subdivide that enormous region and ‘skillfully’ pit the various regional ethno-tribal groups against each other – while setting up a lucrative and militarily strategic site for launching future wars against US (and Israeli) rivals in Iran, Central Asia and China. JP:Syria has effectively been ‘chopped up’ by competing imperial and regional powers leading to a possible confrontation among major powers. The US-Kurdish-Turkey conflict provides the most immediate danger of serious open warfare among major nations. Yes, it does.
JP: The US escalated its military support for the YPG, promising heavy arms and increased US ground and air support. Meanwhile, the YPG expanded its control of the Kurdish regions in Syria especially along the Turkish border, creating a powerful territorial tie of Syrian-Kurds with Turkish-Kurds and Iraqi-Kurds. The US generous supply of heavy weapons to the YPG has increased the Kurds capacity to fight Turkey for the establishment of a contiguous ‘Greater Kurdistan’. Moreover, the US government has publicly informed Turkey that its armed forces will provide a ‘shield’ to protect the YPG – and indirectly the PKK – from Turkish attack. Exactly as I've stated here- The US declared war on Turkey and the significance of that was lost on the 5 eyes media extension masquerading as alternative media  Just looking at the logical fallacies employed throughout that piece of dis/misinfo masquerading as alternative opinion?  Reads like 5 eyes/USIsraeli disinfo to me.

 JP: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is acutely aware that the YPG’s goal is to partition Southeastern Turkey and Northern Syria and form a Kurdish state with Iraqi Kurdistan. US Defense Secretary James Mattis’ pledge that ‘Washington is committed to protecting its NATO ally (Turkey)’ is ambiguous at best and most likely a hollow promise. Washington is counting on the Kurds as a strategic ally against both Damascus and ISIS. Only after accomplishing their twin goals in Syria might the Pentagon turn against the Kurds and support the Turkish government. flashback  November 24/ 2014: Pt.2- Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey
I suspect Turkey is in the process of being double crossed- And, I believe Erdogan is aware of this. We have seen this type of double cross on more then one occasion. Libya had attempted to cooperate with the US only to be betrayed and Gaddafi brutally killed. Syria had also attempted to appease the US, again, only to find itself caught in the crosshairs of the NATO global tyranny nexus dominated by US/Israeli/UK interests.

Turkey is being prepped for that same treatment. It's been a plan in the making for at least 12 plus years, but, likely much longer. JP: "The Erdoğan regime is in a quandary: A victory for the Kurdish YPG and their occupation of territory along its border will materially threaten the ‘unity of the Turkish state’. JP:"President Erdoğan is clearly aware that the US was involved with the silent ‘Gulanist’ permeation of the Turkish state leading up to the 2016 abortive Gulanist coup" Recall  the 5 eyes, main stream and alt media, actually spun a 'conspiracy theory' regarding Erdogan creating the coup that nearly took his life as a false flag? I thought that incredible considering the usual ridicule dished up by the 5 eyes and that specific alt outlet regarding conspiratorial thinking? (No 9/11 questioning allowed)

flashback:  Turkey/US: Cat & Mouse. Creating Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0 Has Been A Mass Bloodletting
JP "Washington hopes to convince President Erdoğan that the YPG will hand this strategic territory over  (LOL) to an amorphous, minuscule puppet Arab-led militia, presumably made up of non-Kurdish collaborates of the US-NATO-Saudi war against Damascus. It is hard to imagine the veteran politician Erdoğan believing a Pentagon plan for the YPG to just hand over its territorial patrimony"JP: "One point is clear: A territorially-based powerful Kurdish militia, armed by the US, will be far more formidable threat to the unity of the Turkish state than the previous ill-armed rag-tag guerrillas in the mountains of northern Iraq. It will be a humiliating defeat if Erdoğan surrenders to Pentagon demands and tolerates a US-YPG alliance on Turkey’s border. Erdoğan has some powerful options of his own: Turkey might deny the US Armed Forces access to its huge airbases in Turkey thus weakening NATO’s ‘southern flank’. A Turkish threat to withdraw from NATO altogether would have greater repercussions. Even the slightest hint of exercising these options would set off a ‘second coup’ against Erdoğan. This would involve a more serious US-NATO-backed uprising by senior Turkish officers, ‘nationalists’, democratic secularists and Kurds in major urban centers with ‘Gulanist’ politicians and bureaucrats waiting in the wings. President Trump and the Pentagon may gain a foothold against Damascus with Kurdish surrogates in Northern Syria, but the loss of Turkey will be a strategic setback.

Putin: Russia Will Not Supply PKK/YPG With Weapons

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 09:24
Wanted to get to this yesterday. It didn't happen. Long time readers are aware I am no fan of out of context quotes- So when anonymous left the comment below, to which I responded noting the lack of direct quotation. 

AnonymousMay 15, 2017 at 5:32 AMMoscow maintains working contacts with Syrian Kurds as they are among most capable units in fight against ISIL - Putin
PennyMay 15, 2017 at 5:59 AMIt's a shame he said that at all! At least he didn't say they are the best or only effective fighters- That would have been an insult to SAA-'s not surprising to read that type of thing from him- interfax without quotations-
And no context. I went to search for exactly what was stated by Putin and what was the situation/context for this statement. What I found was rather interesting

Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed participants of the Belt and Road Investment Forum in Beijing, China.On May 14-15, the Chinese capital has hosted the international forum dedicated to the initiative of Beijing to develop infrastructure in Eurasia and to strengthen ties between the countries of the continent. The event is expected to gather together dozens of world leaders, including Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko among others. We have Putin in Bejing at an investment forum taking questions

Support of Kurds in Syria

When asked whether Russia supplies Kurdish fighters with arms in Syria, Putin said that Moscow, unlike the US, doesn't do that.
 "Unlike other countries, we do not announce the supply of weapons to Kurdish units, and they do not much need our deliveries. They have… other sources of receiving these weapons. We do not believe that we need to somehow intensify this work," Putin said.They (Russia) don't supply weapons because the Kurds don't need our (Russian) weapons.
Obviously they don't since the US supplies them everything they need and more.  

Digression: I am wondering about the use of the word announce? Does it imply secrecy? Is it a translation thing? The rest of Putin's statement appears to state no weapons are supplied because they aren't needed and most sensibly not asked for.

 "Since the Kurdish factor is a real factor in the situation in Syria, and Kurdish fighting units take part in military operations against the so-called Islamic State [Daesh terrorist group] and are among the most combat efficient units, we consider ourselves entitled to maintain with them working contacts, at least in order to avoid possible clashes and situations that could create threats to our servicemen," Putin said.Let's talk about what Putin said above:

"Kurdish fighting units take part in military operations against the so-called Islamic State"

"the so called Islamic State" 

That's interesting.  Using so called denotes sarcasm. Why is Putin being sarcastic when referencing the Kurdish military operations against the so called Islamic state?

"among the most combat efficient units" 

Putin says they are among the most combat efficient units. 
What makes them so efficient? (competent/capable)
The US arms? The US bombing? The unlimited US support? The embedded special ops forces? The support of Israel? The UK? Certainly all these factors would make the Kurds very efficient.  Considering the Kurdish militias have every conceivable advantage possible, could calling them efficient simply be a statement of the obvious?
Is Putin's statement one of admiration? Or support?
Or is it just an observation based on available information?   
Of course, we don't know what Putin was thinking when he said this. But, I'm not jumping to conclusions about support or admiration for these militias. Maybe? Maybe not?

"we consider ourselves entitled to maintain with them working contacts"

I'm quite sure that Russia does maintain all manner of contact with them.


G&M spins Putin's statement as lauding. Was he lauding/praising?
Perhaps he was being facetious? He did use "so called" in the same sentence.
Perhaps he was expressing known observations/common talking points? I don't know? 
Neither does the Globe and Mail.

"Putin on Monday lauded the Kurdish fighters as "one of the most efficient units" against IS and said Russia has "working contacts" with them"
Putin insisted in televised comments that Moscow would not arm the Kurds because "they have other sources of obtaining the weapons."

Assad's (Hitler) Crematorium Claims the US

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Mon, 05/15/2017 - 15:34
If at first you don't succeed? Lie, lie again. 
We're getting into Holocaust™ territory with this claim
Reinforcing well known, well worn mind viruses.

 New York Times

The Sednaya Prison complex outside Damascus, SyriaIs this the Sednaya Prison Complex? Could this be something other then a prison? I don't know. And I've no intention of taking the US word on this!

 The State Department released satellite images on Monday that officials (CLAIM) said showed that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria has built a crematory at a military prison outside Damascus to hide a large number of executions.Stuart E. Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, said officials believed that the crematory had been constructed so that little evidence exists of the thousands of people who are executed every year at the Sednaya Prison complex.
Lots of beliefs out there. Lots of claims too Not all of them factual. 

The evidence presented by the United States remains circumstantial. Satellite photographs of the complex show that while nearby buildings were covered in snow, the roof of the building suspected to be a crematory was free of snow, suggesting a significant internal heat source. Should I believe what is being said? Should I believe this circumstantial evidence?
Mr. Jones said that prisoners had in the past been buried in mass graves, but that a crematory could dispose of the bodies without leaving evidence behind.  "...could dispose of the bodies without leaving evidence behind"

Making this an ideal claim for the US to make, right?

Obviously I cannot believe ...

Syria’s Rebranded Al Qaeda, Is “not a designated terrorist group”

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Sun, 05/14/2017 - 17:51
 That's right not a designated terrorist group! Not according to Canada or the US. Same group. Different name. No longer terrorists Brings to mind the YPG /PKK. PKK = terrorists, but, rebranded franchise YPG = not terrorists. Change the name, change the perception, support the same thugs-  It’s that simple to hoodwink the masses who refuse to pay attention to what their government is actually up to! And I’m supposed to believe this omission is inadvertent? As if! The CBC spins, via the headline, as if it’s a simple omission. Obfuscating much CBC? Oh never mind, of course you do! CBC  staff and editors know most people won’t read to the bottom of the page- But, I will!

Of course, I'll underline the important bits:
"The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada's list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift.

That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups"
That’s right American readers, your government and mine, neglected to include terrorists on the terror list- This allows money to be sent to them and propaganda to spread on their behalf- It also works in a beneficial way for recruitment- Unless you’re a ‘special kind of stupid’(hattip Willy Loman) you cannot believe this to be anything but intentional.

Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani still leads the group- "HTS escapes being listed at a time when it is absorbing other jihadi groups and attracting more recruits, even as the Islamic State retreats on multiple fronts.

HTS has a history of renaming itself and altering its structure to confuse outsiders, and the Syrian population, about its true affiliations. But until now, few observers have accepted its claims to have distanced itself from its parent organization.
Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now "caliph" of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

Both countries are normally careful to capture all the aliases of terrorist groups, including minor variations in spelling and punctuation. (Islamic State has 46 permutations of its name listed by Public Safety Canada; al-Nusra has six).

But then in January of this year, the group shifted again, nominally dissolving itself and joining with four other jihadi groups. It slightly altered its name, changing the word "Jabhat" (Front) to "Hay'at" (Organization)"
And that slight name alteration just threw Canadians and American's right off!
They were dogs that had lost the scent. Aimlessly sniffing shit on the ground.
"The military commander of the group continues to be al-Jawlani, whom the U.S. has branded a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. On Wednesday, the U.S. government posted a $10-million reward for him. The reward notice states that al-Nusra is "at the core of HTS," which is led by a triumvirate that also includes Egyptian Abu Khayr al-Masri, the number two of the global al-Qaeda organization.

And yet HTS has not been designated in  Canada, which usually follows the U.S. listing closely, has also not listed the group.
The change is significant, and the U.S. State Department confirmed to CBC News that HTS members are no longer considered terrorists.
The State Department did issue a statement in March, in Arabic only, branding HTS a terrorist group. But the State Department's Nicole Thompson told CBC that was a mistake.
"Though closely affiliated with al-Nusra, Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham is not a designated terrorist organization," she said in an email. "The statement you found should have said al-Nusrah Front and has been corrected."The US and Canada do support Terrorists! And AQ/. Jabhat al Nusra/ Tahrir al Sham is NOT A TERRORIST GROUP
"Why no listing?

The reasons for the reluctance to list the new al-Qaeda formation may have to do with one of its new members, the Nour ed-Dine Zenki Brigade, a jihadi group from the Aleppo governorate.

The Zenki Brigade was an early and prominent recipient of U.S. aid, weapons and training.

Zenki was cut off by the State Department only after Amnesty International implicated them in killings of Orthodox Christian priests and members posted a video of themselves beheading a young boy."
Zenki was never cut off from anything by the US as you will read
For the U.S. to designate HTS now would mean acknowledging that it supplied sophisticated weapons including TOW anti-tank missiles to "terrorists," and draw attention to the fact that the U.S. continues to arm Islamist militias in Syria.The Zenki brigade in action- recipients of US and Canada funding and support

Prior to the US/Canadian okayed thugs beheading this child
The Zenki brigade also doubles as "White Helmet" members! You know there was that Oscar winning documentary that portrayed these killers as humanitarians? Especially useful in the profitable organ harvesting that been ongoing since this destabilization began back in 2011.  Because AQ in Syria = White Helmets (previous posts on that subject here at the blog)

  So the US and Canada continue to supply weapons to terrorists they have committed heinous crimes against humanity .. Attacked a sovereign nation state and worse.  Both, the US and Canada wish to obfuscate their despicable yet completely intentional involvement/collusion/support of these despicable persons- Doesn’t say to much good about our military and our leadership now does it?

"It also means that Canada currently does not list any active branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, the world's most important jihadi battleground.

"It wouldn't surprise me at all that because of the shifting nature of these alliances and relationships that western countries' hands are not entirely clean in terms of their own dealings with these groups at some point in the past," says Mathen"

Clearly Al Qaeda is an ally of both the US and Canada- And our support of terrorists makes Canada and the US terror nations! It's time to deal with that reality folks.

The Deal Associated Press (AP) & Roosevelt Made with Hitler's Germany

The Deal Associated Press (AP) & Roosevelt Made with Hitler's Germany

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Sun, 05/14/2017 - 09:27
 Usually I just skim past any rehash of ww2 and nazi’s- It’s just so tiresome. However, I simply had to make an exception for this tidbit via Washington Post.
 As you read the entire news article you’ll notice it's written to gloss over the most curious admission  choosing instead to fret over photos published in the US.  It’s not that the photos published in the US don't interest me. They do. But the admission glossed over is the one of the US providing images to Germany....

At the height of World War II, the Associated Press made secret arrangements with an SS officer to obtain pictures taken by Nazi photographers that were distributed to American newspapers — a deal authorized by senior U.S. officials.The extraordinary arrangement, which began in 1941 and ended with Hitler’s fall, is detailed in a lengthy internal report the AP released Wednesday morning. It comes several months after Norman Domeier, a German historian, discovered a letter describing the deal in the papers of AP’s then-bureau chief.The report includes documents recently declassified at the request of AP’s management, including letters of approval from a wartime censorship office run by an ex-AP editor who reported to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As part of the arrangement, AP shared pictures of U.S. war operations and Allied advances, which were reviewed by Hitler and published in Nazi publications. An AP editor who reported directly to Roosevelt - Who also shared picture of US war operations and allied advances
“With one known exception, the AP images that appeared in German publications through this arrangement were unaltered by the Germans, “ the report said, “but captions were rewritten by the Germans to conform to official Nazi views.U.S. counterintelligence agents unaware of the approval found “definite proof” that the AP was “engaged in operations coming within the purview of the Trading with the Enemy Act,” according to a document referenced in AP’s report. The case wasn’t pursued. Obviously the case wasn't pursued because the President would've simply shut it down. 
Since the AP editor reported directly to FDR. 

"The case wasn’t pursued" & "editor who reported to President Franklin D. Roosevelt"

Why would Roosevelt have approved the sharing of US war operations and allied advances photos?

 Dealing with the images from Germany 

If we're supposed to believe that images regarding US ops were used by the Nazi's for propaganda, ("rewritten by the Germans to conform to official Nazi views.”how then should we interpret photos from Germany and their employment in the US?

AP's internal report exonerating themselves, of course

Firefighters at the scene of one of many synagogues across Germany that were set afire during the November 1938 Kristallnacht pogrom. This image was widely used by member newspapers
Is it sensible  that AP, when publishing these photos for the American audience, rewrote specific information/captions for the purposes of promoting propaganda to the American audience. I would think it perfectly plausible. 

Image above: 

Allegedly a synagogue? Not sure how one can tell from the photo, but, that's what is claimed in the caption accompanying it. Should we believe that caption at all? 

 Could this just be an image of an ordinary building fire with an exploitative/manipulative caption? We've all seen that type of manipulation via the media!

  I have to wonder why the fire department would even be there attempting to put out the fire if Germany and Germans wanted to rid themselves of the followers of Judaism? Why not just let the place burn to the ground? 

Propaganda, it's insidious.

Kurds Allow ISIS to Leave Tabqa & "Live to Fight Another Day"

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Fri, 05/12/2017 - 18:50
 This is getting to be ridiculous! Time and time again. Kurds enable ISIS to walk away.
Talk about being enablers of terror! So much for fiercest most effective fighting force against ISIS. I laugh every time I read that absurdity stated. By anyone. Anyone at all. Anywhere
 ISIS, can go to Deir ez Zour and the Kurds can “fight” them there all the while stealing more Syrian territory-Wash, rinse, repeat.

One wonders what is the real reason the US keeps arming the Kurds to fight ISIS? When the Kurds continually allow ISIS to walk away? Why would they have any need for arms, being such master negotiators and all? One reason is for the waging of yet more war.
2ndly, steal and hold territory and of course, the arms are for the Kurds to use against Syrian civilians- You know, putting them by the tens of thousands in outdoor prison camps?

flashback YPG/PKK: US Weapons & Outdoor Prisons for Syria's Displaced

Let's talk about the Kurds letting ISIS take a pass, shall we? - No arrests made? No transfer to US/UK forces for incarceration/trial whatever for all their acts of heinousness? Nope just let'em go! 5 eyes media is finally reporting, with a whole lot of spin, what was reported more then a week ago at Xinhua- Hattip anonymous!
AnonymousMay 6, 2017 at 9:15 PM IS withdraws from Syria's Tabqa as Kurdish-led groups take over
DAMASCUS, May 4 (Xinhua) -- The Islamic State (IS) group withdrew from the city of Tabqa in northern Syria on Thursday, as the city has become completely under the control of Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a monitor group reported.
The IS started withdrawing from Tabqa in the western countryside of Raqqa Province, after agreeing to a deal struck between local delegations of Tabqa and the SDF. The deal allows the IS militants stuck in the city to leave through passageways controlled by the SDF toward Raqqa, the de facto capital of IS, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Yup, ISIS  just walked right by their fiercest enemy? Do you believe that? Cause I do not! These two are partners- Tag team partners- Symbiotic KurdIShIS- With the US arming and guiding them both- Always

Washington Examiner- Today 

Syrian Kurdish-led forces say they are carrying out mine-clearing operations at the country's largest dam  Can't imagine why the Kurds would have to clear out "mines" when removing IED's and other weapons was a condition of ISIS leaving... I just see men walking down a roadway
U.S.-backed Syrian forces have scored a key victory over the Islamic State by clearing the northern Syrian city of Tabqa, but allowed some 70 ISIS fighters to leave to fight another day. Davis said while the ISIS fighters were granted safe passage out of the city, they became legitimate targets once they began to move in the direction of RaqqaWhy would they head to Raqqa? It's Deir ez Zour their needed at?

 flashback:ISIS Capital is now Deir Ez-Zor- Israel Strikes SAA in Queneitra
 "About 70 ISIS fighters conceded to SDF terms, which included dismantling IEDs around the dam, surrendering all of its heavy weapons, and forcing the withdrawal of all remaining fighters from Tabqa city," said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. The deal to allow the ISIS fighters to trade control of the dam for their lives was unusual because ISIS militants are usually under orders to fight to the death. Claims Colonel Dorian- Spin doctor for the US Military- I've lost count of the number of postings placed  here regarding the repeated free passes the Kurds have given ISIS- 

"The U.S. was not part of the battlefield agreement, which was made by a Syrian Democratic Forces ground commander"
What a flippin' farce!

France’s Top Vineyards Suffer Biggest Loss in Decades- Ice, Ice, Baby!

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Thu, 05/11/2017 - 18:47
I'm still not feeling the warmth here in Southern Ontario, Canada- Official gardening date just two weeks away- Can't even get the tomatoes to "harden off "- Smaller then usual thanks to the lack of sun and heat..... Wind direction from the north east = colder then normal
Lake Erie levels, still high,  above average- No heat- No sun for evaporation.

Also noticing a complete lack of spring bird babies- I should be seeing ducklings and goslings. And fierce Geese parents keeping everyone well away from their precious babies- But I'm not.
At one of the local parks, (St Johns- look it up/Pelham) there was a goose (Canada) that had a nest, sitting on her egg/s- This week we went back- No adult goose. No nest. No goslings. 
I'd mentioned in the comments previously about the lost nest and egg in my front tree. NO robin babies. No mourning doves. Nothing. The cold is making it very difficult for the birds to successfully  do what they do. Incubate their eggs. Raise their young.
 I'm sure this is occurring elsewhere, but people aren't paying attention. Too busy staring at their hand held zombification devices to notice the real world.

Here's the same type of news in Finland:

 Cold weather is keeping birds from nesting and delaying blossoming of wild berry bushes in Finland's north
 The cold is being reflected in the late arrival of migratory birds. According to Jukka Jokimäki, a researcher at the University of Lapland's Arctic Centre, the institution's annual count of migratory birds is now on hold because so few have come as far north as the Arctic Circle.

"At the beginning of April it looked like we'd have an early spring, but migration has been at a standstill and is around a week and a half late. Wagtails are the only insect eaters being seen. Wading birds are missing altogether, which is understandable since all of our ponds and lakes are still covered by ice," reports Jokimäki.
btw: We were supposed to be having a "warmer then normal spring"
But, Eastern Canada — especially Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes — can look forward to a "warmer than normal" spring. Summer arrives in a little more then 5 weeks and were yet to see spring- Here's hopin'!

France’s Top Vineyards Suffer Biggest Loss in Decades
    Worst freeze since 1991 to cut Bordeaux volume by up to 40%
    Champagne, Burgundy vineyards suffer for second straight year
Heaters in a French vineyard in AprilIn the predawn hours of April 27, as temperatures across Bordeaux plunged below freezing, the normally dark and deserted vineyards suddenly sprang to life. Armies of workers decamped into the fields, fires raged and giant fans and helicopter blades whipped up the icy air.

The invading enemy: A frost that threatened one of the world’s most valuable crops, the grapes that produce $4,000 bottles of Chateau Petrus and other prized wines. The cold, which caused at least 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) of damage in what France’s winemakers call the biggest disaster in a quarter century, is the latest blow to a French industry that exported 8.25 billion euros worth of wine in 2016 but has lost share globally in recent years. As frost ravaged vineyards from Bordeaux to Burgundy to Champagne,  a grower’s fate depended on resources, planning, location and not least, luck.Among the shivering workers in Bordeaux that night was Ines de Bailliencourt of Pomerol estate Chateau Gazin, who quickly realized she was facing the biggest frost menace to her vines since the great freeze of 1991 that wiped out 90 percent of the vineyard. This time she says the estate was better prepared to ward off the cold, lighting hundreds of giant, heat-producing candles to warm the vines.Oh my god- Did those candles add carbon to the air- That carbon surley warmed everything up, right away! Not!  But I'm sure the heat generated by the fires or heaters may have at least saved some crop. From the cold!
“We were lucky,” said De Bailliencourt, whose family has owned Gazin for the past century and sells its wine for $50 to $100 a bottle. “We lit fires everywhere. It was a first for us.”Fires- Were they wood fires? Natural Gas? Oh no, that's carbon- We're going to fry. (me rolling eyes and being obnoxious)

Less than 10 kilometers (6 miles) to the south, just below the historic town of Saint-Emilion, others were facing greater losses. Unlike Gazin, on the region’s plateau, Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere sits on low-lying ground near a railway line and was more vulnerable to pockets of freezing air forming below the slopes. More than 70 percent of the vines in the estate were damaged, according to Magali Malet-Serres, who works at the winery.

Some other Bordeaux chateaus say they lost almost everything. Other regions suffered less but this is the second straight year of deep freezes for Burgundy, where the regional wine board said in a statement that 3,000 hectares (7,400 acres) of vineyard out of a total of 28,500 hectares was affected.Frost affected as much as 60 percent of the Bordeaux wine-growing areas and will cut volume of the 2017 vintage by as much as 40 percent, according to the Bordeaux wine federation FGVB. That means at least 1 billion euros in lost production from that region alone, out of normal annual revenue of 3.5 billion to 4 billion euros, the organization said. 1945, 1961
Bordeaux vintners were quick to note that great years like 1945 and 1961 were also hit by frost, with the surviving grapes ripening to perfection. The prospect of tighter supply could fuel demand for the region’s lauded 2016 vintage, just as the annual “en primeur” sale of futures gets under way.

In Champagne, as much as one-quarter of vines owned by the region’s 15,000 growers might be damaged, according to the industry’s trade body in the U.K. Because most Champagne is a blend of vintages, houses such as Laurent Perrier and LVMH-owned Moet & Chandon can tap into the equivalent of 200 million bottles kept in reserve tanks, along with a further 1.3 billion bottles aging in cellars. Producers say that will tide them over for now, but if the run of bad luck continues next year, shortages will appear.

While France was most affected, April’s frost damage spread across much of wine-producing Europe, damaging the vineyards that produce riesling in Germany, sparkling wine in southern England and Prosecco in northern Italy. Some Mediterranean regions were spared, though the cold also killed off apples, cherries and other crops.So that's wide spread cold, then?
“It’s a frost like we haven’t seen since 1991,” said Paul-Francois Vranken, chief executive officer of Vranken-Pommery Monopole SA. “We’re worried.”

In France’s Burgundy, growers were well-organized after a deep frost last year. This time around, when the forecasts predicted another freeze, they arranged a text-message chain and delivered hay bales to strategic spots. Beaune-based grower and merchant Alex Gambal woke at 5 a.m. on April 29 to clear skies and plunging temperatures. By 6:45 a.m., he said, bonfires created a purple haze across the vineyards.“It was all hands on deck,” Gambal said. “Some of the old-timers compared it to 1957 and 1981. But a lot of them said they had never seen anything like it.”My neighbours to the south east:

 Vortex to bring episodes of chilly air, frost to northeastern US into next week
The weather pattern responsible for unseasonably chilly conditions, and in some cases frost, will continue over the northeastern United States into part of next week.
People with outdoor plans will have to deal with conditions more typical of early April or March for an extended period. Jackets, long sleeves and blankets will continue to be put to use.

US Plan to Arm PKK/YPG is a Declaration of War Against Turkey

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Wed, 05/10/2017 - 10:28
Turkey Says U.S. Plan to Arm Kurds in Syria Supports Terrorism
Quoting from Bloomberg in red 
 "This issue is a matter of existence or nonexistence for Turkey,” Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli told AHaber television on Wednesday. “It is a matter of survival for Turkey. Everyone should see it this way. We can never accept or allow the existence of terrorist organizations that pose a threat to Turkey’s future.”
  The US has just declared war, without actually stating it, against Turkey! Get it? That is exactly what has occurred! In the same way the US declared war against Syria without stating it. Actions speak much louder then words and the actions of the US are loudly screaming the intent! And the 5 eyes media is delivering the message with abundance today.

Patrick Cockburn- The Independent
 "President Trump’s decision to provide weapons to the Syrian Kurds, who are fighting Isis, potentially marks a crucial change in the political geography of the Middle East."Patrick is telling half the story... of course. While also pushing the same bullshit about "kurds/best fighters" The change in political geography will equate to an actual change in the physical geography- As has already occurred in Syria

Turkey, next.

 The US arming of the PKK /YPG is indeed an issue of existence or non- existence, a matter of survival for Turkey.  The fact is the USrael doesn’t want Turkey to survive as it is today.

This plan to destroy Turkey, as it has been occurring in plain sight,  is one that has been written about here, for years. Yes, I will relink just a few of those previous posts while having a bit of a rant.
"While the U.S. considers Syrian Kurdish forces as the most reliable ground force to fight Islamic State in Syria...." This has been the consistent BIG LIE. As mentioned in the post relinked below, the most effective fighters against ISIS have been SAA and allies! The US, had it truly wanted to "fight ISIS", could have allied with Syria from the get go!
flashback: Report Sees ISIS Benefiting From Assad Downfall"The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a majority-Kurd coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, accounted for (ONLY)  17 percent of the action against ISIS""43 percent of ISIS's battles between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 were fought against the Syrian military and its allies, which include Russia, Iran and pro-government militias"Stated at that time:  Making the SAA and it's allies the best, most effective fighters on the ground against ISIS-  No matter how often the big lie has been repeated by the 5 eyes main stream & alternative media.

 “You would not go into the same sack with a terrorist organization,” Canikli said, referring to the designation of the PKK by both Turkey and the U.S., as well as the European Union. Turkey hopes the U.S. “will return from this mistake,” he said, reiterating that his government would foil any attempt at creating an autonomous region for the Kurds in Syria.The US will not return from this mistake. They’ve advanced too far with the remaking of the  middle east/north africa to turn back.

 “Turkey’s lira slumped after reports of the decision, dropping more than 1 percent. It rebounded on Wednesday, strengthening 0.9 percent to 3.5902 per dollar at 2:03 p.m. in Istanbul.”
More of that financial warfare that's been waged against Turkey

 "U.S. Defense Department spokesman Eric Pahon said in an interview. That includes small arms such as rifles and ammunition, armored vehicles, heavy machines guns, and construction equipment such as bulldozers, according to Pahon.

“We plan to track these weapons and equipment and do our best to get it back afterwards,” Pahon said. Once Raqqa is liberated, “we envision Syrian Arabs governing” the city, he said"
 The US plans to track these weapons and equipment and do their best to get them back?! That's absurd! ABSURD! That claim has given me my first belly laugh of the day.
It's so farcical! 

“There is no difference between YPG and PKK,” Cavusoglu said in a speech in Montenegro. “They are both terrorist organizations.”

There is no difference between the two except for the name brand.  YPG has always been a rebrand of PKK, needed to sell/justify the balkanziation/destruction of Syria with an eye towards Turkey.

Rant time!
 This plan to destroy Turkey, as it has been occurring in plain sight, is one I’ve written here about for years now. For stating truth to the best of my ability I was virulently attacked and then just shunned.  It’s okay, I’m happy to march to the beat of my own drum. I won't lie to please people.  
 However,  the close mindedness of so many in the face of the abundance of facts presented here, all readily available, is a sharp reminder of the fact that most people refuse to think on their own and will happily ride the bandwagon rather then consider a different idea. Lesson learned for moi!

For stating the obvious. I was harassed. Called an “erdogan lover” Blocked from certain sites for making my claim regarding the obvious freakin’ destabilization of Turkey. Commenters at Syper couldn’t attack me, call me names and demonize me enough. For stating the obvious. I stopped going to Sakers. Then some of the name callers showed up at the blog... "
 2014- The dawning of the idea Turkey was being targeted! Yes, it was 2014 when the concepts of targeting Turkey and symbiosis between the Kurds and ISIS were shaping up into the theory of KurdIShIS and the take down of Turkey

November 19 2014: Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis - The Impending Destruction of Turkey.
“It seems much more likely that there is cooperation and coordination between the Kurds and ISIS. It’s a thought that has been in the back of my mind for sometime now. When one takes a look at the land grabbed by ISIS and the desired Kurdistan one can’t help but see something taking shape. Something like a new nation.”

one version- The chunk of Syria will be bigger then shown
  November 24/ 2014: Pt.2- Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey
I suspect Turkey is in the process of being double crossed- And, I believe Erdogan is aware of this. We have seen this type of double cross on more then one occasion. Libya had attempted to cooperate with the US only to be betrayed and Gaddafi brutally killed. Syria had also attempted to appease the US, again, only to find itself caught in the crosshairs of the NATO global tyranny nexus dominated by US/Israeli/UK interests.

Turkey is being prepped for that same treatment. It's been a plan in the making for at least 12 plus years, but, likely much longer.
Followed by many others afterwards- However let’s specifically look at two additional blog postings from 2015- Nearly two years ago...

 July 2015- Turkey: Creating "Safe Zones", Fighting for it's Survival, Turkey's letter to UN
And not attempting an expansion?
Reiterating: Turkey by all appearances is defending it's borders.
Turkey targeted brand ISIS from it's own airspace- Without entering Syrian airspace.
August 2015- Is the US/Turkey "Safe Zone" the April Glaspie Handshake?
NATO has already sold Turkey down the river- That's very clear. At least it is to me.
They've unleashed the PKK hell hounds, but, what about that safe zone or buffer zone?
The so called safe zone is nothing but the US and company paying lip service to Turkey's government, minimally.  But even worse, the safe zone may be a way to draw Turkey into a fight it can't win- In order to grind it down.A statement from Mark Toner included in above post
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The United States will not allow Turkey to attack Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (PYD) forces in northern Syria, US State Department spokesman Mark Toner told Rudaw Tuesday.
The PKK/YPG have been allied with America/Israelis for years to the detriment of Syria, Turkey and Iran. This US protection is a double edged sword being employed against Syria and Turkey both. It's some sick twisted R2P, where dupes here in the west cheer on terrorists, that have been likened to some kind of mythological ideal of democratic good will and girl power- Nothing can be further from the truth.

YPG/PKK: US Weapons & Outdoor Prisons for Syria's Displaced

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 05/09/2017 - 10:33
1st up- Advanced US Weapons in YPG/PKK Hands

 The US denies supplying PKK/YPG while stating there is no other way the PKK/YPG could have gotten these military supplies by any other means
"US military officials denied providing anything to the YPG.

“The Department of Defense does not provide arms to the YPG, directly or via intermediaries,” said Maj. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman.So the CIA does it? The State Department does it ?  Obfuscate much!
"He also dispelled claims the weapons could have come from Kurdish forces in Iraq.

“We have no indications that Iraqi Peshmerga forces have transferred US equipment to the YPG” he said"I’ve covered any number of main stream media reports of weapons being supplied to PKK/YPG.-  Oh, look below, it's another one!

Some 250 U.S. soldiers and 48 military vehicles have entered the town of Malikiyah in Eastern Syria, near the Turkish border, to support the outlawed terrorist group PKK's Syrian offshoot Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian Local Coordination Committee (LCC) reported Friday.

According to an LCC statement on its Twitter account, the convoy entered Syria through Iraq's Semalka border gate on Friday afternoon and reached Malikiyah, located east to the city of Hasakah.

Local sources reported that the U.S. has provided 22 truckloads of weapon, ammunition, and vehicle to the terror group since the Turkish airstrikes on YPG positions last week. It was also revealed that U.S.-made TOW missiles were used in retaliation to Turkish army after airstrikes by the PKK.

Not supplying the PKK thugs? Suuuuurrreeeeee.....

What's that??
The Department of Defense does not provide arms to the YPG, directly or via intermediaries,” said Maj. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman.Breaking News! Trump administration approves providing heavier weapons to Syria's Kurds, despite Turkish objections

 VILNIUS—US official: Trump administration approves providing heavier weapons to Syria's Kurds, despite Turkish objections. Major Adrian Rankine- Galloway must have a very long nose. And getting longer with every LIE
PKK/YPG make an open air prison, call it a refugee camp and complain about the hellish conditions they instigated

YPG/PKK created "refugee camps" for displaced Syrians
The co-chair of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), Ilham Ehmed, said that the operations to push out the Islamic State (IS) has resulted in refugee flows into the northern parts of Syria controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and that the displaced people are in urgent need of aid.

“We have gathered the refugees that came recently in two camps,” Ehmed said to ANF. “In one of the camps, 50 thousand refugees are living. A number of aid organisations are present but there are no serious aid efforts. Many of the organisations receive funding from Europe but they still don’t help,” she said“One can’t help wondering if they want Syrians to die, if there is a plan to kill them first with war and then with hunger. And if that fails from the heat and the cold. That’s the sad conclusion one draws from the situation.”

Excuse me? Let’s check the facts here:

“We have gathered the refugees that came recently in two camps” The WE being the PKK/YPG. Since it's their mouthpiece talking about what they have done. So the PKK/YPG gathered tens of thousands of Syrian into outdoor prison camps-
“One can’t help wondering if they want Syrians to die, if there is a plan to kill them first with war and then with hunger. And if that fails from the heat and the cold. That’s the sad conclusion one draws from the situation”
Since it was the YPG/PKK that gathered these people into two outdoor prison camps should we wonder whose plan it is that these Syrian's die? From hunger and exposure to weather?
 It seems sensible to me that if the Kurdish militias created these camps, they are the ones implementing this abuse, with the full  knowledge these people will almost certainly be left to die. Imagine, one camp containing 50,000 men women and and children. A small city behind razor wire- Then the prison creator/guards crying crocodile tears because the people they put there are starving and/ or freezing or baking?
“38 refugees coming from Raqqa have already died, some were children. It’s a tragedy. The European countries and the coalition must take their responsability.”Yes, the 'coalition' which has these militas as their partners needs to be responsible

I have a suggestion for the PKK/YPG Kurdish terrorists- Let the Syrian Arabs go back home! But that’s not the agenda, is it? So let’s read the PKK/YPG suggestion as put forth by the Kurds- Blame Turkey for not taking more refugees. Wake up Europe.

“There is an approach to the issue which goes something like this: ‘Let’s give them [Turkey] money so that no refugees will come here’. But everyone knows that the refugees are remaining in our region [Syria] at the moment.”

Syria is not the PKK/YPG’s region! The men, women and children, the PKK/YPG have placed in outdoor prison camps are Syrians- Stop displacing them. Let them go back to their lands and homes.

“Syrian Conflict: Putin’s Perfidy!” About Those De- Escalation Zones

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Tue, 05/09/2017 - 08:51
Related to- Syria’s De- Escalation Zones Not to be Confused with “Safe Zones”

“Putin seems to have exploited a terrible humanitarian tragedy and a serious political problem—Syria’s six-year-old civil war—to confound several key parties. They include the US, as well as its partner force in Syria, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), as this author has written.The confounding has to do with the PKK/YPG's non acceptance of the no fly aspect of the De-escalation zones- The PKK/YPG relies on the US to soften targets/ethnically cleansing vast swathes of Syrian territory. Ditto for the Kurds partner in crime Israel- They don't like the no fly aspect. Since they like bombing Syria whenever the hell they choose.
They also include Israel. Russian officials surprised the Pentagon on Friday when they announced planes from the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State (IS) would be barred from the four de-escalation zones in Syria, as established by the latest round of the Astana peace talks.

On Saturday, General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called his Russian counterpart. It is unclear what, if anything, their conversation resolved.

A terse US statement issued after their discussion noted the two men had “discussed the Astana agreement” and “affirmed their commitment to deconflicting operations in Syria,” while they “agreed to maintain regular contact.”

The same ban on flights in the de-escalation zones would apply to others, including Israel.

When Israel sees activity in Syria it regards as threatening, it simply bombs the danger. Will Israel still be able to do so? Even if that activity occurs in one of the de-escalation zones?

One such zone lies in southern Syria and includes parts of Quneitra Governorate, which borders the Golan Heights.

Until now, Israel has seen the presence of the rebels there as a buffer against Iran and Hezbollah. Will that buffer disappear?

And which party will enforce the cease-fire in Quneitra? What if Iran sends troops? Or Hezbollah is used for that purpose?

Tensions between Hezbollah and Israel have led to war in the past. Israel is already uneasy with Hezbollah’s enhanced status in Lebanon.

What would Israel do, if Hezbollah also became ensconced in Quneitra? The de-escalation zones have the potential to facilitate a dangerous build-up of weapons and hostile forces alongside another Israeli frontier”

To a lesser extent, Jordan faces similar risks. The de-escalation zone in southern Syria includes part of Dara’a Governorate, which borders Jordan. Which party will enforce the cease-fire there?

Presumably, Amman does not want to see Iranian forces, or Hezbollah, next door. However, the Russian proposal also allows for other countries to join in guaranteeing the cease-fire. Possibly, Jordan might opt to do so, rather than see hostile troops on its border.

The Syrian opposition has criticized the zones as an attempt to partition the country, and the Russian proposal is unlikely to be any more successful than past efforts to secure a cease-fire.

Indeed, Dr. Mark Kramer, Director of Harvard University’s Project on Cold War Studies, denounced it as a “cynical ploy.”

However, it certainly has the potential to cause serious problems for the US and its allies. But, then, that is how a clever KGB agent would operate: wrap a poison pill in a package of seemingly good intentions.Haven't decided, yet, how I feel about this piece?? It's interesting though and do wonder what others may think about it- We all know Israel has been supporting the terrorists in Golan. For years and years now. Along with terrorists in other areas- Including in the beginning the PKK as they entered northern Syria (as my understanding of this situation grew, it dawned on me that Israel's early interventions in northern Syria was indeed with the PKK- go back to 2011 posts covering the earliest days of destabilization)

Macron Triumphs? Record Votes for Nobody.

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Mon, 05/08/2017 - 18:43
Emmanuel Macron's triumph over Marine Le Pen in the French presidential election has been hailed as a landslide victory for the centrist candidate and a widespread rejection of his rival's far-right platform.

But Macron's mandate may not be as overwhelming as it seems. A record number of French voters were so dismayed by their options that they either skipped the election or cast their ballots for no one at all.   The so-called "ballot blanc," or white ballot, has a long history as a protest vote in France, going all the way back to the French Revolution. This time around, nearly 9% of voters cast blank or spoiled ballots -- the highest ever since the Fifth Republic was founded in 1958.  . According to a recent Ifop poll, 40% of French voters said they would cast a blank vote if it were recognized under French law.
Check the graphics at the article- both interesting and unfortunately unpostable
Does anyone have the stats on percentage of population that actually voted?
It seems abstentions and votes for nobody took a larger percentage of the vote then Le Pen and Macron's win can scarcely be called triumphant!
The protest voteGuillaume Castevert, 46, from Bordeaux in southwest France, said he voted blanc in the final round after his favored candidate, Jean-Luc Melenchon, of the left-wing Le France insoumise movement, was knocked out in the first round.  Like many voters, Castevert was scared of a Le Pen win and wanted his voice to be heard, but refused to vote for Macron, whose policies he disagrees with. "I don't want to vote against something," he told CNN. "I want to vote for something."  He's also deeply unhappy with the French electoral system. "I'm quite convinced that the election system is not very democratic. In fact, it's quite the opposite," he said. "Every five years you make people feel like they are important, like their vote counts, but it doesn't really matter."Castevert said his white ballot represented a vote against both candidates and against the system he believes they represent.Democracy should be about the people, he said. "Now it's not the power of the people, it's the power of a few people."  "Now it's not the power of the people, it's the power of a few people."

“Syrian” Kurds Plan to March to the Mediterranean Sea- Greater Kurdistan

pennyforyourthoughts2 - Sat, 05/06/2017 - 13:19 unfolding right before our eyes. And 5 eyes media unquestioningly and approvingly report on the annexation of Syria territory in glowing terms while characterizing Turkey’s reaction as negative. Which it will be, of course. However, did anyone ask the Syrians themselves, all the rest of them how, they feel about their country being annexed?

Why should Turkey be overjoyed with this? It’s obvious where this is heading?
Should the Turks go, ‘oh yeah, the destruction/annexation occurring in Syria is our future and that’s just great’! One would have to be deranged to cheer that on!

flashback: US Kurdish Alliance Violation of NATO Treaty

complete with your feel good smiling/flag waving perception managing imagery 

The Guardian, of course
In a further sign of growing Kurdish confidence in Syria’s north, officials say that they plan to ask the US for political support in creating a trade corridor to the Mediterranean as part of a deal for their role in liberating Raqqa and other cities from Islamic State (Isis).
So the US is just going to deal Syrian territory away, then?
flashback:  Syrians Rage Over American Flag-Flying Tanks

Senior figures have also indicated that the Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), a 50,000-strong collection of fighters dominated by the YPJ Kurdish militia and a crucial US partner in its offensive against Isis, is preparing to occupy Raqqa after eradicating Isis before pushing deeper into Arab territory, along the Euphrates valley, and seizing the city of Deir ez–Zor from the extremist group.
Recall my mention of how it was oh so convenient that proxy ISIS went to Deir ez- Zor
flashback: ISIS Capital is now Deir Ez-Zor- Israel Strikes SAA in Queneitra
As stated ..." But you can bet the annex/appropriation of Syrian territory will continue unabated"

In another startling development, an official even revealed it was possible that SDF forces might eventually push west to liberate the city of Idlib.

 Hediya Yousef, in charge of the federalism project for the self-declared autonomous “democratic federation of north Syria”, which has expanded from the Kurdish region of Rojava to include considerable Arab territory, told the Observer:
Rojova has expanded to include considerable Arab territory- Anyone who has been reading here for the past several years will be aware that this was the plan!
  Hediya Youself continues..“Arriving at the Mediterranean Sea is in our project for northern Syria, it’s a legal right for us to reach the Mediterranean.”
Syria always did reach to the Mediterranean, but, this is not the Syria,  prior to the destabilization that we’re talking about here. This is part of the plan for Greater Kurdistan. The plan I’ve discussed here for years and years. The plan the msm and alt media ignore, willfully, for their zionist benefactors. And yes, that's my opinion!
When asked if that meant asking the US for its political backing to achieve a trading route to the sea once they had helped eradicate Isis from north Syria, Yousef said: “Of course.”

The SDF’s liberation of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor along the Euphrates would extend territory controlled by the autonomous federation of north Syria to almost a third of the country, compared with the 16% that was governed by the federation of Rojava.
