Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Iraq condemns bombing of PKK camps
Iraqi Prime Minister Abadi has condemned the Turkish bombardment of PKK camps in northern Iraq. He sees the attacks as a serious violation of the independence of Iraq and fears a “dangerous escalation” of conflicts.
Abadi calls on the Turks in order to avoid further escalation and find a solution to the crisis.
The approach of the Turkish Erdogan government to terrorism is now: a few symbolic actions against ISIS terrorists who had used Turkey as their base for violence in Syria for a long time; and many more attacks on the only effective force fighting these ISIS terrorists: the Kurds in Syria, in Turkey, in Iraq

Who is the enemy of ordinary people?
Our rulers have provided the answer. It’s them. The outsider. The foreigner. The people who want to blow us up.
OK. I’ll go with that. They want to blow us up.. So what are we doing in their countries stirring up trouble, meddling with their politics, giving them reasons to blow us up?
If they are such a problem, such a danger, why have our rulers done everything possible, despite minimal cultural and historical connections with these countries, encouraged and enabled a high level of immigration?
Why when known trouble makers – known because they were ejected from other countries for being troublemakers, and having known connections with terrorism, fomenting it at every opportunity, have they not been deported?
And – and this is a real beaut – after our governments have orchestrated this melodrama, sternly told the populace who did not vote…

A Statue of Satan is being unveiled in Detroit. The event is being billed as: “The largest public Satanic ceremony in history.” Typically American hyperbole, we suppose. Discounting that side of things, the event still manifests considerable political significance. It should not be overlooked or dismissed as the nonsense of nutjobs.
This event, a fairly short time ago, would not have been possible in America; the culture would have prevented it. Or so we suppose. But now as we have written, the United States has gone from “In God we trust” and its related suspicion of government, all the way to “In Government we trust with suspicion for God. Satanism naturally follows. By definition, even.
Replacing God with Lucifer is not the only related reversal here. America was enriched as a Christian place, one where the Post-Reformation “Protestant Work Ethic” was enshrined. With that, corruption was minimal. The hard-working middle…

“China wants to write the rules for the world’s fastest-growing region … We should write those rules,” President Obama declared in his State of the Union address. To sell Congress on giving him authority to “fast track” consideration of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade and investment treaty with 12 nations that has been under negotiation for five years, the president argues it is vital that “we” write the rules. The real question, of course, is what does he mean by “we”?
Our global trade and tax policies have been and still are controlled by corporate and financial interests. They, not workers or consumers, write the rules.
A few weeks ago Wall Street and the giant, multinational corporations got their way and pushed “fast track” through the Congress. This set up a special voting procedure for trade agreements – and only for trade agreements – that makes sure these rigged deals can get through Congress before the public can be organized to rise up in opposition.
However, one good thing did make it into this recent fast-track bill. The bill said the administration cannot go into a trade deal with any country that is a “Tier 3″ human trafficking (slavery) violator.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act’s (TVPA) requires the State Department to compile a Trafficking In Persons (TIP) Report that ranks countries according to their compliance with certain TVPA standards. Countries are ranked:
Tier 1 if the fully comply with the TVPA’s minimum standards.
Tier 2 if they do not fully comply but are making significant efforts…

This video from Britain says about itself:

The ‘Special Demonstrations Squad‘ are reported to have been undercover police officers who infiltrated protest groups from the late 1960’s to the mid 1990’s- and it is claimed by Scotland Yard that the Squad had now ‘disbanded’.

Deceived partner speaks of secret officer’s treachery
Wednesday 29th July 2015
IT WAS 10 years after Alison’s long-term partner disappeared that she was able to convince more than a few friends that he was an undercover police officer.
She believed he was Mark Cassidy, a joiner from Birkenhead who headed out at 6.30am each morning to work on building sites during the five years they lived together, from 1995 to 2000.
He was active in construction union Ucatt and an ally…
