U.S. Refused to Wipe out Daesh Column near Fallujah*

U.S. Refused to Wipe out Daesh Column near Fallujah*

By Ian Greenhalgh

A large Daesh column has been annihilated west of Falldushi, in the Fallujah area; another success for the Iraqi forces and their Fallujah offensive.

Attack helicopters used rockets and missiles to destroy the vehicles and inflict heavy manpower losses on the headchoppers.

However, there appears to be some uncertainty as to who carried out this attack – the Iraqi Army claims that they had to do the job themselves because the US refused.

Victory has many fathers but defeat is an orphan, as someone once quipped…..

According to the Pentagon the attacks killed up to 250 militants of the Caliphate and up to 40 wheeled vehicles.

In general, this attack is reminder in miniature of the “Highway of Death” during the retreat of Iraqi forces from Kuwait in 1991.

Lord Rothschild Demands Britain Stay in E.U.*

Lord Rothschild Demands Britain Stay in E.U.*

Lord Rothschild has urged the British public to steer clear of a Brexit vote and remain part of the European Union, in a threatening open letter for The Times

Rothschild, says in his letter that the U.K. public should not “risk the wellbeing of our country”, pointing out that European countries are “better of together”.

Investmentweek.co.uk reports:

Rothschild, who chairs the RIT Capital Partners investment trust, refers to his family businesses which originated with five brothers setting up the “first truly international banking system,” operating from London, Paris, Vienna, Naples and Frankfurt at the end of the 18th century.

He said: “The brothers, working together to exchange information and ideas, built an extraordinary business that operated across boundaries and cultures.

“150 years later, the foundation of the EEC operated on similar principles, namely that we are stronger and better off together.”

Rothschild also alludes to a number of major independent institutions, including the IMF, OECD and the Bank of England, all of which have warned against leaving the E.U. as it would cause the U.K. economy to suffer.

The OECD have said U.K. GDP could fall more than 3% in the case of a Brexit and believes the U.K’s “economic dynamism and productivity” would suffer.

Commenting on political and foreign policy, Rothschild said we live in a time when “international order based on co-operation is crucial to prosperity and security”.

He added:

 “At present we enjoy being a permanent member of the UN security council and we are essential to the G8 and Commonwealth. But diplomacy, defence, the environment and our values of being a liberal democracy will all be at risk.”

He also pointed out that a vote to leave the EU would increase the risk of Scotland calling for another referendum and the future of the UK as a coherent entity will be at stake.

“I can see no good reason why we should accept our playing a diminished role on the world stage,” he said.

Corporate Media Silent on M.E. on Israel and Turkey Strike on Syrian Oil Deal*

Israel agreed to establish a $20 million fund for activists killed in a 2010 attack on a Turkish aid ship bound for Palestine, but the deal has far more to do with oil than human rights.

Turks gather in Istanbul, on the fourth anniversary of the Mavi Marmara ship, background, the lead boat of a flotilla headed to the Gaza Strip which was stormed by Israeli naval commandos in a predawn raid killing at least 9 passengers and wounding dozens more. Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim announced Monday, June 27, 2016, that Turkey and Israel have reached a deal to normalize ties after six years of strain.

 

After six years of strained relations, Israel and Turkey have hammered out a deal to renew diplomatic ties between the two countries.

The deal, announced on Monday, marks Israel’s willingness to make major concessions over the 2010 attack by Israeli naval forces on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish ship that belonged to the Freedom Flotilla, a group of vessels carrying aid bound for Palestine. Ten activists were killed in the attack.

The Washington Post reported that Israel agreed to establish a $20 million fund for the families of the Mavi Marmara victims and allow more humanitarian aid to reach Palestine.

However, far beyond any recognition by Israel of the human rights of Palestinians and their allies, the deal reflects a growing alliance between Israel and other major Middle Eastern powers seeking to control the region’s energy resources.

“The rapprochement has potential wide-reaching security and economic ramifications in the region,” reported The Post’s Erin Cunningham and Ruth Eglash

. “Turkey and Israel once shared close military cooperation, and they have common worries over the Islamic State and other war-driven instability in Syria, which borders Turkey and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.”

Israel took control of the Golan Heights, a region of about 460 square miles in Syria, in the Six-Day War of 1967. Officially annexed in 1981, Israel has expanded its oil drilling and illegal settlements in the Heights in recent years under the cover of the Syrian civil war and with flagrant disregard for international condemnation.

Israel’s energy agenda

According to information held in WikiLeaks archives, Israel is likely seeking not just to solidify its control over the Golan Heights, but to secure access to Syria’s fossil fuels. Leaked State Department emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server show that the U.S. deliberately helped to promote instability in Syria at Israel’s behest. According to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, shared plans to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad date back to at least 2006.

WikiLeaks archive of U.S. diplomatic cables reveal that Turkey was also working with Qatar and Saudi Arabia to destabilize Syria. Israel has also made diplomatic overtures toward Saudi Arabia in recent months, although the details of those advances remain largely under wraps.

According to a Sept. 9 analysis by MintPress News founder and editor-in-chief Mnar Muhawesh, this growing alliance is backed by the U.S. government and its NATO allies, and it represents an effort to block Russia from accessing Syria’s energy resources while simultaneously weakening Iran. Muhawesh wrote:

“The true agenda to hijack Syria’s revolt quickly became evident, with talking heads inserting Syria’s alliance with Iran as a threat to the security and interests of the United States and its allies in the region. It’s no secret that Syria’s government is a major arms, oil and gas, and weapons ally of Iran and Lebanon’s resistance political group Hezbollah.

But it’s important to note the timing: This coalition and meddling in Syria came about immediately on the heels of discussions of an Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline that was to be built between 2014 and 2016 from Iran’s giant South Pars field through Iraq and Syria. With a possible extension to Lebanon, it would eventually reach Europe, the target export market.”

Humanitarian aid comes with strings attached

Even increased aid to Palestine potentially benefits Israel. A September study by Aid Watch Palestine found that at least 72 percent of aid to Palestine eventually finds its way into the Israeli economy.

And Israel’s deadly blockade of Gaza remains largely intact, preventing everything from crayons to building materials and medical supplies from reaching the enclave. Turkey initially demanded an end to the blockade, but that demand was dropped shortly before the new agreement was forged, according to a report from the Electronic Intifada, a news and advocacy site dedicated to Palestinian liberation.

“In a face-saving measure, Israel will allow Turkey to increase its ‘humanitarian’ role and infrastructure projects in the besieged territory,” Ali Abunimah, Electronic Intifada’s co-founder, wrote on Monday.

Meanwhile, Abunimah reported “anger and dismay” over the deal from residents of the occupied Gaza Strip. He quoted Refaat Alareer, a Palestinian educator and writer, who condemned the agreement in a tweet:

The Turkish Israeli deal is a scandal and an insult to Palestine/Gaza and to the blood of Turkish activists

World’s First 24/7 Solar Power Plant Powers 75,000 Homes*

World’s First 24/7 Solar Power Plant Powers 75,000 Homes*

By Lorraine Chow

SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Project in Tonopah, Nevada is quietly providing clean, green solar energy to 75,000 homes in the Silver State even when the sun isn’t shining.

Crescent Dunes is the first utility-scale facility in the world to use molten salt for power energy storage capabilities, a technology also known as concentrated solar.

With a concentrated solar plant such as Crescent Dunes—including other plants like it around the world—more than 10,000 movable mirrors, or heliostats, reflect solar energy to a central, 640-foot tower that heats up salt to 1,050 degrees Fahrenheit.

This salt is used for two purposes, as SolarReserve points out on its website. First, it retains very high levels of heat, making it like a thermal battery that can be used night and day, whether or not the sun is out. Second, when electricity is needed on the grid, the molten salt gets dispatched through a heat exchanger to create super-heated steam to power a traditional steam turbine.

This process is similar to a conventional fossil fuel or nuclear power plant except with zero carbon emissions or hazardous waste and without any fuel costs, the California-based solar company says.

“The whole project cost slightly under $1 billion and SolarReserve holds a 25-year contract to supply power to NV Energy for $135 per megawatt hour,” OilPrice.com observed.

“The tower produces 110 megawatts of energy for 12 hours a day according to the company, which works out to roughly 1 million megawatts per year. This in turn implies a gross [return on assets] of ~13.5 percent—not bad as investments go.”

The method is different compared to photovoltaic technology, which harnesses the sun’s rays on panels that convert sunlight into electricity. While photovoltaic arrays have many benefits and the technology has been well-tested and proven, its biggest problem is when the sun is not out.

As EcoWatch mentioned previously, a solar system’s peak generation hours do not coincide with the utility’s peak load hours after 5 p.m., meaning power companies turn to high-carbon peaking turbines in the evenings, thus decreasing the environmental benefits of solar panels.

“The plant is noteworthy for what it accomplishes—it is the first truly 24-7 solar plant in the world. For many applications that is a very big deal,” OilPrice.com adds about the Crescent Dunes project.

“Having to build a second power plant to back up a solar array is not an ideal solution to say the least. Thermal solar resolves that issue all while letting facilities like SolarReserve’s store 1,100 megawatt-hours of energy.”

Residential or grid-scale battery systems, such as the ones manufactured by Tesla, are an another emerging solution to solar storage issues but the technology is relatively new.

Solar thermal plants are setting up in sun-spoiled deserts around the world. The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the California Mojave Desert is the largest concentrated solar plant in the U.S., spanning 3,500 acres and has 377 megawatts of net generating capacity. The facility, however, is experiencing widely reported “engineering hiccups,” including a fire that broke out in May.

Dubai’s massive Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is another notable concentrated solar plant that will hold the distinction of being the world’s largest once it’s operational in April 2017. The facility aims to produce 1,000 megawatts by 2020 and 5,000 megawatts by 2030. The solar park also broke the record of having the solar on May 1 when five international companies bid as little as 2.99 cents per kilowatt-hour to develop the plant’s latest phase of work.

Besides Crescent Dunes, SolarReserve is developing two other concentrated solar plants. The venture is building the Redstone Solar Thermal Power Project in the town of Postmasburg in South Africa, which will be the first concentrated solar plant in Africa. The other is the Copiapó Solar Energy Project in Chile which will combine both concentrated solar and photovoltaics, making it the first facility of its kind in the South American country.

A Ghanaian firm stepped in right on time as a Black-owned Bronzeville bank was on the verge of collapsing.

Groupe Nduom of Ghana invested a whopping $9M into the failing Illinois Service Federal Savings and Loan Association, now known as ISF Bank, Ghana Web reports. The bank was in search of capital to revive its struggling operations.

“Our mission is to be a viable, growing, community development financial services institution responding innovatively to our primarily underserved and minority constituency with customer service which ensures each customer feels they are our only customer,” the bank’s website reads.

The firm acquired ISF Bank in May, a representative from the financial institution told Atlanta Black Star.

According to Chicago Business, Groupe Nduom of Ghana operates out of West Africa and the United Kingdom, employing over 3,000 people. The firm’s businesses and social enterprises include entities in the tourism, financial services, media, cross border trade, and media industries.

Company president and chairman Dr. Papa Kwesi Ndoum called the ISF Bank acquisition a “major step for Africans,” pointing out the new opportunity for Ghanaians to start businesses in the Black community.

“In the Jewish community, they find a way to help each other, and they have moved on,” Ndoum explained at a town hall meeting of Africans and African-Americans in Chicago.

“The Chinese start with little and move on, and the Koreans also come here and move on,” he noted.

“So, we have this idea: What is it about African-Americans, Africans, specifically Ghanaians?…. The African has talent, the African-American has talent, the Ghanaian has talent; the problem is a lack of opportunity.”

The company president said he hoped the new acquisition would inspire Africans and African-Americans to work together for their mutual benefit, Ghana Web reports.

The firm presented an award to senior pastor of the Oasis Group of Churches, Rev. Dr. Isaac Paintsil, who was the first Ghanaian to open an account with the bank. Ebenezer Nsiah, president of the Ghana National Council, followed suit, pledging to withdraw $10,000 from the council’s current bank and deposit it into the ISF Bank.

“Our mission is to support businesses in the community, and this bank is a Ghanaian business,” Nsiah said. “If it is successful, it will have an impact on us. This is our opportunity to give support to Ghanaian businesses to be successful in Chicago.”

According to Atlanta Black Star, the Black bank has played a vital role in funding Black entrepreneurs, businesses and institutions, as well as sustaining the Black community and individuals in tough times. For example, the Freedman’s Savings and Trust company, established by Congress following the Civil War, was created to help newly emancipated Blacks.

Black-owned banks were also crucial during the Jim Crow era, as African-American communities across the country struggled to achieve economic growth and development, ABS reports. The Black community of Tulsa, Oklahoma, known as Black Wall Street, is one of few examples of African-American communities that achieved economic success.

Between 1888 and 1934, there were over 130 Black-owned banks in the U.S., according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. That number plummeted to 48 in 2001, with only 22 remaining today.

Noting past efforts to form partnerships that would foster progress for Black people, activist and president of the Metro Area Black Trade Council, Rev. Dr. Al Sampson, called for renewed efforts to create businesses and organizations that link African-Americans, Ghana Web reports.

The longtime reverend likened the new bank’s efforts to link Africans and African-Americans to the 1957 meeting between Martin Luther King Jr. and first president of Ghana Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

According to Joy Online, ISF’s former Chairman and CEO, Norman J. Williams, happily welcomed the bank’s new proprietors.

“This marks a new chapter in the life of the bank, which will enable it to sustain the rigors of financial stress that have plagued many communities in Chicago and continue to provide much-needed banking services and access to credit,” Williams said. “Given the current climate in our country, the bank is needed more than ever to provide financial services and drive redevelopment in our market.”

According to the bank’s website, the new main office is located at 4619 S. King Drive Chicago, IL 60653.

First “boycott ban” Case Defeated in U.K. High Court*

The first case to cite the U.K. government’s attempt to quash boycotts of Israel failed in the high court on Tuesday.

A group of anti-Palestinian lawyers brought a case in October against three local councils. They had passed motions supporting the movement to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel, or BDS.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign said in a statement that it was “victory for the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign and for democracy.”

One pleased council leader called the ruling a “victory for free speech.”

Elected local governments in North Wales and the English city of Leicester passed the motions in October and November 2014.

They came months after Israel’s devastating summer attack on the Gaza Strip which killed more than 2,200 mostly civilian Palestinians, including at least 550 children.

The third motion, added to the case, was passed in 2010 by the council of the South Wales city of Swansea. It called on council leaders not to do business with Veolia, a French infrastructure company which was then deeply involved in Israel and its settlements.

Years of successful BDS campaigning forced Veolia to withdraw from Israel and the occupied West Bank, with the final step taken in August 2015.

“Ban” fails first test

The case was the first known attempt to rely on the so-called “BDS ban” which the U.K. government has attempted to impose on local government bodies.

The Conservative government issued new guidance in February aimed at stamping out boycotts of Israel.

The note was launched by a U.K. government minister in a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, and trailed in the media as “boycott ban.”

The document stated that public bodies such as local councils and some universities could face fines in civil court cases if they boycott signatories to a World Trade Organization agreement on purchasing. Israel is among the agreement’s signatories.

But Palestine solidarity campaigners argued that the document in reality still allowed local bodies to consider ethical procurement.

Activists immediately protested the move as an attack on freedom of speech and a dishonest attempt to intimidate human rights campaigners and local elected officials, calling it “smoke and mirrors.”

Development charity War on Want said “the boycott ban does not actually ban all boycotts.”

Jewish Human Rights Watch

The anti-Palestinian lawyers who brought the case argued that the councils had violated equalities law as well as the new anti-BDS guidance note.

High court judges Peregrine Simon and Julian Flaux disagreed and dismissed the case. The claimants on Tuesday called the ruling “disappointing.”

A registered company calling itself Jewish Human Rights Watch had brought the case. Despite its name, its main record is one of misrepresenting Palestine solidarity campaigners as “anti-Semitic” and attacking them with spurious lawsuits – “lawfare.”

It was established in 2014 by Manny Weiss.

According to Conservative justice minister Michael Gove, Weiss is one of his “great friends” and a “generous supporter” of the Henry Jackson Society – a hard-right Islamophobic and anti-Palestinian neoconservative group.

The judgment states that Jewish Human Rights Watch’s claim to have “consulted widely among the Jewish community before bringing the [legal] claim [to court] was not supported by any evidence.”

Freedom of speech

The judges also said that “criticism of Israel is not seen by all Jews in this country as an attack on their community, or, at least, not necessarily so.”

It emphasized that “the court should be vigilant to protect the right of freedom of expression.”

The judges also drew a distinction between elected councils passing motions, and executives implementing actual policy. The council executives tended to distance themselves from the motions, saying they had not been implemented in practice.

“No contracts or potential contracts were affected by the resolutions,” the judges concluded.

Jewish Human Rights Watch lawyers attempted to argue that for such motions against Israel to be legal, as a “minimum requirement … someone should raise in debate the impact of the resolution on the Jewish community.”

But the judges disagreed, saying that local elected representatives “do not (and should not) expect that their speeches will be scrutinized later in court … It would significantly inhibit debate if this were a requirement of the law.”

“In our view, the exercise of scrutinizing the debate simply highlighted the unreality of this part of the claimant’s case,” the judges concluded.

FBI Transcript Shows Nobody Died in Orlando Shooting Until SWAT Teams entered*

What should have been front page news everywhere, somehow got buried amid the official narrative we were given about the Orlando shooting. Judge Andrew Napolitano told FOX News that an FBI transcript indicated that no one died until 05:13am Sunday morning when the police SWAT teams entered the building.

“Here’s what is news in the summary – nobody died until 05:13 in the morning, when the SWAT team entered. Prior to that no one had been killed. The 53 that were injured, and the 49 that were murdered all met their fates at the time of, and during, the police entry into the building,” Judge Napolitano said.

Here’s the official transcript.

So, this makes one question why the 911 call transcripts are being redacted and why the people are not being told the truth across the media about what really took place.

We have been told that 5 to 6 police officers were already in the club for 15 to 20 minutes or more prior to the SWAT teams’ entering.

So, what is the truth here?  Some claim that 05:13am is the time of death, but how is that when that suspect was not even down until 05:15am?  Could it be that some of the people in the club were shot by the SWAT team or by Mateen?  With nearly50 people dead and more wounded, how was Mateen able to get off that many shots?  I’m really curious.

Take a listen to the entrance of the SWAT team into the club.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=aa2_1465732813

If that was not enough, police officers have even admitted that they may have killed some of the people. WFAA reports:

Monday, Orlando Police Chief John Mina and other law enforcement officers offered new details about the shooting, including the possibility that some victims may have been killed by officers trying to save them.

“I will say this, that’s all part of the investigation,” Mina said. “But I will say when our SWAT officers, about eight or nine officers, opened fire, the backdrop was a concrete wall, and they were being fired upon.”

A law enforcement source close to the investigation who asked not to be named said a crowd of up to 300 people and the complex layout of the dance club may have resulted in some patrons being struck by gunfire from officers.
