Vaccine effectiveness reduced by common toxins in human body

I have covered the topic of vaccines many a time on the blog.
The fact that they are mostly ineffective, often contaminated or prone to going wild and spreading the disease they are supposed to prevent. And even causing cancer.
If you have missed any of those important posts the big pharma label at the bottom should take you back..



To bolster the case that vaccines are ineffective along comes this bit of news.
And what makes it worse, is the fact that human beings are so polluted, and these pollutions are what is alleged to cause the reduction in effectiveness. Which was already minimal anyway.
But "no need to panic". As if you would anyway?
Just keep taking those useless shots, making the pharmaceutical companies profits ever bigger.
And one more thing.....aren't all the additives in vaccines adding to the polluted and toxic chemicals in the human body? You know formaldahyde, mercury........
Snake oil.


"Vaccines, we’re told, aren’t 100 percent effective. That’s why some of us come down with the flu after getting a flu shot.

Now a new Harvard School of Public Health study suggests this may sometimes be due to exposure to certain environmental toxins. The researchers measured levels of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) - found in food packaging, stain-resistant carpets, and nonstick pans - in nearly 600 children who lived in the Faroe Islands in the Norwegian Sea and found that those who had the highest levels of PFCs had a 50 percent lower reaction to tetanus and diphtheria vaccines, according to the study published in last Tuesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association.

“Previous studies have suggested that vaccine effectiveness may be reduced by other chemicals, like PCBs, but with PFCs we saw a much steeper effect, and this was surprising to us,’’ said study author Dr. Philippe Grandjean, an environmental health physician at Harvard.

Levels of PFCs found in the Faroe children (who consume high levels of seafood associated with increased PFC exposure), he added, are similar to those found in American children, but it’s not known whether the same effect occurs with other vaccinations.

There’s certainly no reason for parents to panic over the finding, said Dr. Rick Malley, an infectious disease expert at Children’s Hospital Boston who wasn’t involved with the research. “I would say it’s an elegant study and it’s provocative, but it’s just showing an association, not a cause and effect.’’

Bomb Iran? "Yes We Can". A lunatic speaks.

Normally I don't post on the week-end.
But what is normal about the goings on in the world.
If you didn't read the previous post on Syria, please do.
But before you do, take the time to read this editorial.



Written by Bill Keller, who is allegedly the former editor of NYT's. Which I guess says it all ?
Given the NYT's propensity to shovel shit and call it news.
This editiorial was so callous in it's disregard for everything human, I was taken back.
The level of blood thirstiness in it? I don't know?
I have probably read stuff equally as appalling in the so called main stream media, but, this entire piece was oozing with venom. Callous.
No regard for human life.
Filled with out and out fabrications.
I could hardly believe this much shit could be crammed into one piece. Can you imagine the plunger needed for this... much excrement.
And the use of election slogans????

I'll just post some highlights...

"OK, MR Obama, here's the plan. Some time in the next few months you order the United States Defence Department to destroy Iran's nuclear capacity. Yes, I know it's an election year, and some people will say this is a cynical rally-round-the-flag move on your part, but a nuclear Iran is a problem that just won't wait."

There is no nuclear Iran

America's pre-emptive strike, designated Operation Yes We Can


Operation "Yes We Can" Yes we can what, be genocidal maniacs?

"Civilian casualties? Not a big deal, sir, given the uncanny accuracy of America's precision-guided missiles."

Who is this guy kidding?

America's new bunker-buster, the 13.6-tonne Massive Ordnance Penetrator, will turn the place into bouncing rubble. Fordo is more problematic, built into the side of a mountain, but with enough sorties the US could rattle those centrifuges. Excuse me? Does that take care of everything? Um, that we know of.

Nuclear power plants are not illegal. The inspectors from the IAEA have always been in Iran.

In fact in the last paragraph of this call to war, Bill Keller acknowledges the ever present IAEA inspectors.
I will quote and bold-
"An attack on Iran is almost certain to unify the Iranian people around the mullahs and provoke the supreme leader to redouble Iran's nuclear pursuits, only deeper underground this time, and without international inspectors around."

Iran will probably try to score sympathy points by trotting out dead bodies and wailing widows, but the majority of the victims will be the military personnel, engineers, scientists and technicians working at the facilities. Fair game, in other words."


Well there would be dead bodies and "wailing widows" would there not? And children who lose their parents and parents who lose their children.
Fair game? Really?

"To be sure, America could just let the Israelis do the bombing. Their trigger fingers are itchier by the day. But they probably can't do the job thoroughly without the US, and America would get sucked into the aftermath anyway. You might as well do it right and get the credit. Really, sir, what could possibly go wrong?"



You had to know the Israeli card was going to be played. Do it for God, apple pie and Israel.
Why not let Israel just do the bombing themselves, with their ever itchier trigger fingers.
After all what weapons do they have that the US doesn't. What with their 200-400 nuclear weapons arsenal. American does not have to "get sucked in" If Israel want's to go for the jugular let them do that on their own. Wow, this guy is all for American's dying for Israel's gain.

The lunatics are running the asylum!
Or in this case the lunatics are running and ruining the planet

Syria: Russia's red lines, France replays it's terror role and the Kurds

Here is some of the latest- Russia and the UN concerning Syria

Following a lengthy closed door meeting Friday afternoon on a draft resolution proposed by France, Britain and Morocco, the UN Ambassador from Russia made these statements-
He speaks of red lines and he speaks quite clearly about the situation in Syria as it relates to Russia's stand.

image from above linked article-VOA

“The red lines included any indications of sanctions, the red lines included any sort of imposition of arms embargo - because we know how in real life arms embargo means you supply arms to illegal groups but you cannot supply weapons to the government - we cannot accept that"

Precisely as it happened in Libya.

There was an embargo and the NATO nations supplied the "rebels". Who murdered the leader and are in the process of raping and torturing their way through the nation. Oh yes attempting to hold the nation they never had a hold on. Not without NATO bomb/slaughter sorties.
Canada, speaks out of both sides of it's mouth

Canada delivered a harsh diplomatic rebuke to Libyan officials in both countries Friday after "credible" reports of torture linked to the country's interim government
Harsh my arse! Canada threw it's lot in with terrorist, radicals and killers. Knowing full well what the outcome would be.


Back to Syria, where we can see a very similar plot has been undertaken by the NATO nations and Israel.
In Libya the NATO backed rebels were able to take a small piece of Libya and control it with the help of NATO, various special forces, mercenaries etc.,
It would appear that the so called "Free Syrian Army" is attempting the same. By trying to control areas near the border with Turkey


Which is why we see the names Idlib and Aleppo in the next article I will link to.
You may recall the attack on Syrian forces at Jisr Al Shigour? West of the town of Idlib. This attack came with the help of Turkey. And sparked the appearance of "refugee camps" on the Turkish side of the border. Does anyone notice we never hear about the so called refugee crisis anymore? Wonder why that is?
What would seem most plausible is, there never was a refugee crisis.
As I had speculated repeatedly the camps were a cover for attacking muslim brotherhood, turkish troops, special forces, mercenaries... who ever could be bought and paid for by NATO and western taxpayer dollars!

Keep in mind this is the NYT's-

"The growing violence and assertiveness of the loosely organized military force hinted at the expanding role of armed fighters in a movement that began peacefully (never was peaceful) more than 10 months ago.

The Free Syrian Army’s leadership is based over the border in Turkey. (in the refugee camps) It is unclear whether it (Turkey) has any organizational control over the local, ad hoc militias in Syria that one person described as “franchises.”

Turkey is deeply involved, while not having entire control. They have control of what emanates from their border.

In some places the militias are filled with local men, and in others, like Saqba, many of the defectors come from other parts of the country, welcome but somewhat mysterious guests.


Mysterious guests.
NYT's plays fast and loose with facts. What they are really saying, without saying, is the "mysterious guests" can come from anywhere. Turkey, Libya , Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan...take your pick.


Some residents of Homs, including several Christians and Alawites, expressed fears that hard-line Sunnis known as Salafis were forming armed groups and stoking violence.


You may recall the Salafis from the assassination of the young Italian man in Palestine? Doing Israel's work? Refresh your memory here

April 21/2011- Salafists: Killing Vittorio, firing rockets into Israel & causing unrest in Syria. Who benefits?


Continuing on....

The government promised to strike “firmly” at the armed gunmen, like the army defectors in Saqba, who it says represent the true face of an opposition it has branded as terrorists. The message has found sympathetic ears, not only among Mr. Assad’s large base of supporters but also other Syrians who fear that a growing armed insurgency will destabilize the country.


That's right. Assad has a large base of support. A very large base of support. 55 percent of the populace. And they have a right to be concerned about their nation being destabilized, for that is the plan. It has been the plan all along. Since the created uprising began March 2011.

It is being reported that one of the "Top" opposition groups is helping the armed rebels
That is of course the Syrian National Council & Bassma Kodmani who is letting loose the propaganda in France

Educated in Britain and France, she is an Arab world expert who has worked in several Paris-based think tanks.

She and her group (NATO) are working to aid the Free Syrian army in their agenda of destroying and driving Syria into civil war as in Libya.

By assisting in arming the same radicals, terrorist, killers, rapists and torturers- Just like in Libya.

Kodmani said the council is working to identify and locate FSA rebels to see how they can connect and equip them with communications equipment and bulletproof vests.

Just communications equipment and bullet proof vests, eh?
Come on! Not credible..
If they are supplying /equipping the "rebels" with bulletproof vests OBVIOUSLY they are providing them with weapons to fight. Why else would bulletproof vests be needed?
So now we understand that the " Syrian National Council" is a mechanism of destruction, with a legitimate sounding title.

The aim is to get territory under their control. Have I mentioned that already?

The FSA has no command structure (nonsense) and holds no territory — unlike the Libyan rebels who used Benghazi as a base to topple Moammar Gadhafi with help from a NATO air campaign

What a claim, "no command structure"!

The FSA (Free Syrian Army) has a command structure via the nations of France and Turkey. Two prime examples discussed in this post. It is clear France is using the Syrian National Council to arm the destabilizers and that constitutes a command structure.
As of yet control of a chunk of Syria has alluded the Free Syrian Army, but there are working at it.

Now, one last piece of the Syrian puzzle. One I have mentioned in a number of previous posts.
The Kurds- They are important to this situation. So far though, they have been mostly absent in Syria. But, Turkey and Israel are hoping to change that.
Quite frankly I can't see that working out, but, you never know.

Interesting commentary here, some of it credible, some of it simply incredible
Or nonsensical, whichever?
The stuff about the PKK and Syria. I don't see this as anything but spin.
The PKK is so thoroughly owned by Israel and the US it is non credible to entertain a Syrian PKK connection
. So that bit of spin is probably easy enough to dismiss.
Turkey is playing an interesting game with the Kurds.

The game plan of Turkey appears to have focused on two tracks. Turkey has pushed the SNC to establish strong ties with restive Kurdish groups in Syria, offering them a clear vision for the post-Assad era to quell fears of Arab reprisal against Kurds.


Recall I mentioned the Syrian National Council, from France, earlier in this post?

At the same time, with the exception of the PKK and related groups, Ankara urged Kurds in Syria to openly denounce separatism and to support the territorial integrity of the country. Secondly, Turkish officials have held talks with both Iraqi Kurdish leaders Massoud Barzani and Jalal Talabani to sway Syrian Kurds to their side. Barzani has closely aligned with the Kurdish Democratic Front, the largest coalition of Kurdish parties in Syria, while Talabani has close contacts with the coalition called the Kurdish Democratic Alliance.


Syria has been mindful of the Kurdish population in the country. I have mentioned that previously and will broach the subject again shortly.

What is interesting here is to note the fine line Turkey is having to walk regarding the Kurds.
Turkey has issues with the Kurds within their own borders. If they accomadate the Kurds of Syria, will they embolden the Kurds in Turkey? Only time will tell. These moves Turkey is involved in to destroy Syria have the potential to come back and bite the Turkish government. Hard.

From JP- Kurds and Sway

It is also known that the Syrian Kurdish political scene is notoriously fragmented, with the traditional Kurdish parties harboring misgivings toward the Arab opposition groups as well as toward Turkey. These various cleavages have afforded the Assad regime an opening it sought to exploit.

And Assad did exploit the opportunities presented. It only makes sense.

Early on in the uprising, Bashar al-Assad moved to neutralize the Kurdish areas. He issued a decree naturalizing the registered stateless Kurds (the so-called ajanib, or “foreigners”) and repealed Decree 49 of 2008, which regulated land use and ownership in the border regions.

These concessions were made “preventatively, in order to hinder or at least minimize Kurdish participation in the Syrian revolution.”


And these concessions have worked so far. Which is why we see Turkey and France meddling.
After all “There is a lot of distrust among Syrian Kurds towards the Kurdish parties.”

So someone is courting the Iraqi Kurds?
Would that someone be Israel? It has been previously reported that Israel's army is present and active in Kurdish Iraq.

Iraq’s Masoud Barzani has assumed a notable role.

Barzani, who had declined an invitation from Assad to visit Syria, hosted the president of the SNC Burhan Ghalyoun earlier this month. According to some reports, Ghalyoun sought Barzani’s mediation to get the KNC to join the SNC. Negotiations are apparently ongoing, and the KNC’s secretary general, Abdul Hakim Bashar, said on Monday that the Kurdish council was awaiting the SNC’s response to some amendments to their respective political programs, which could allow for the two groupings to join forces.

Iraqi Kurdistan is thus emerging as a critical player in the Syrian arena, and a convergence point for many of Assad’s opponents, from Turkey to Lebanon.


Recall some earlier posts on this topic?

QE3 coming soon.....

Like QE1 and QE2 this will do nothing for the average individual.
The 99 percent if I may.
QE is for big banks to wheel and deal. To speculate. To drive prices of commodities up.
To extract money from the many, to enrich the few.
To wage economic warfare on targeted economies
Not to ease unemployment. Not to get people back to work...




Ben S Bernanke laid the groundwork for a third round of large-scale asset purchases should unemployment remain higher than the Federal Reserve would like while inflation falls below a newly-established target.

The Federal Open Market Committee “recognizes the hardships imposed by high and persistent unemployment in an underperforming economy, and it is prepared to provide further monetary accommodation,” Bernanke said yesterday at a press conference in Washington.

Stocks and Treasuries rallied after policy makers said the benchmark interest rate would stay low until at least late 2014, pushing back a previous date of mid-2013. Fed officials also lowered their projections for economic expansion and inflation for this year and next.

“It was an unambiguous, aggressive statement,” said Julia Coronado, chief economist for North America at BNP Paribas in New York. “My expectation is that we are going to get quantitative easing three in April,” she said, referring to a third round of bond buying.

Flash back to this post on QE2- March 02/2011

QE2: Bernankes Brew conjures starvation, strife and military interventions

Snips from previous post....


*What we have witnessed these past few months has been a speculative bubble in the commodities market. Specifically food and energy.


"Ever since QE2 was announced in November, commodity prices have surged. Critics say it flooded the world with liquidity, which in turn devalued the dollar and drove institutional investors out of US treasuries and encouraged them to seek higher returns for food commodities."


The banks, of course, are the big players in the speculation. This planned economic warfare has played a role in the destabilization of all the nations we have seen in upheaval recently.

*Speculation has been driving the energy prices. Not instability. There is plenty of oil. Saudi Arabia has offered to ramp up production. Libyan oil is a mere fraction of the global oil inventory.
But, speculators (banks) loaded up with American dollars, have taken advantage of the upheaval in Libya and other nations to push the price of oil upwards! Doing some reading today I note the US has a surplus supply, additionally they get there energy from Canada.


Following along, you should now understand that QE2 was designed to do exactly what it has done. Destabilize the economies that the US led NATO army wanted destabilized, wanted to remove and replace the leadership or attack as necessary......

Is QE3 the harbinger of more military adventures?

USS Enterprise going to the Straits of Hormuz

Curious? Is this the sacrificial lamb going to slaughter?

I blogged on this false flag potential long ago, sadly blogger removed my post. May 2011.
My draft version is still intact.
Quoting from it

The USS Enterprise, which was set to be decommissioned originally in 2015 was sent to the Mediterranean for ONE LAST deployment, before it's planned earlier decommissioning in 2012. Yes, they moved that ahead three years.
Making the USS Enterprise the perfect sitting duck for a false flag attack.

The USS Enterprise is all set for decommissioning this year, 2012.
How will that happen? A false flag may be handy!

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told sailors aboard the country’s oldest aircraft carrier that the U.S. is committed to maintaining a fleet of 11 of the formidable warships despite budget pressures, in part to project sea power against Iran.

Panetta’s remarks came amid the roar of fighter jets taking off and landing on the flight deck above, as the Enterprise conducted training operations about 100 nautical miles off the coast of Georgia.

“The Big E is going to be an important symbol of that power in that part of the world,” said Panetta,

An important symbol .........

Japanese Gov kept Fukushima report secret

Apologies for my absence.
I'm caught up in some home renovation work, that is limiting my time.

So just some quick news stories...
Cabinet kept alarming nuke report secret

Fearful of scaring public, existence of document was denied for months
The government buried a worst-case scenario for the Fukushima nuclear crisis that was drafted last March and kept it under wraps until the end of last year, sources in the administration said Saturday

After the document was shown to a small, select group of senior government officials at the prime minister's office in late March, the administration of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan decided to quietly bury it, the sources said.


That means COVER UP!

"When the document was presented (in March), a discussion ensued about keeping its existence secret," a government source said .In order to deny its existence, the government treated it as a personal document of Japan Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Shunsuke Kondo, who authored it, until the end of December, the sources said. It was only then that it was actually recognized as an official government document, they said."The content was so shocking that we decided to treat it as if it didn't exist,"(COVER UP) a senior government official said.


A private-sector panel investigating the disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant intends to examine whether the government tried to manipulate information during its handling of the crisis.
( That must be why this news is coming out now, the private sector panel, no doubt full of nuclear industry types will validate or demonstrate or create the perception that the government did not manipulate information but acted in the best interests of the nation)

The panel plans to interview Kan and Goshi Hosono, minister in charge of the nuclear crisis and Kan's former adviser, among others.Kondo drew up the document at Kan's request and is dated March 25, 2011.


Read the worse case scenario -

The document forecast that in a worst-case scenario the plant's crippled reactors would intermittently release massive quantities of radioactive materials for about a year


Then consider this latest news report nearly one year later
TEPCO notes RISE in Radioactive levels

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday reported an increase in radioactive materials leaking from damaged nuclear reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant.

The total amount of radioactive cesium that leaked from the containment vessels of the No. 1 to No. 3 reactors reached 70 million becquerels per hour, up 12 million becquerels from the December level, the power firm said.


Worst case scenario, anyone?

The projection was based on a scenario in which a hydrogen explosion would tear through the No. 1 reactor's containment vessel, forcing all workers at the plant to evacuate because of the ensuing lethal radiation levels.
The document said that in such an event, residents within a radius of 170 km of the power station, and possibly even further away, would be forced to evacuate. Those living within a radius of between 170 km and 250 km of the plant, including Tokyo, could chose to evacuate voluntarily. The wrecked power station is about 220 km northeast of the capital.



Isn't it interesting that there was an explosion at Fukishima, if I recall correctly possibly two of them? No wait, I looked back at my old posts on this topic. There were three explosions at the Fukushima complex.Yet no expansion in evacuation to the 170 km to 250 km zone?
I guess the Japanese government "didn't want to worry anyone"

Kan admitted in September that a worst-case scenario for the disaster had been drawn up. After parts of it were leaked in December, his successor, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, decided to start treating it as a Cabinet Office document.Because we were told there would be enough time to evacuate residents (even in a worst-case scenario), we refrained from disclosing the document due to fear it would cause unnecessary anxiety (among the public)," Hosono, the nuclear crisis minister, said at a Jan. 6 news conference



Flashback to some old posts on this subject. Including yellow rain and neutron beams
Or - Damaged containment vessels, including # 4, poisons in the ocean, plutonium in the soil.
It does seem as if the 'worst case scenario' the Japanese government conspired to keep hidden was the reality of Fukushima.

Let's remember together


Fukushima I's Reactor No. 1 sustained an explosion in the upper levels of its outer containment structure



These 4 images show the larger, more-fiery hydrogen explosion at Fukushima I's Reactor No. 3 Monday morning. In terms of the impact on plant operations it was thought to be as innocuous as the hydrogen explosion at Reactor No. 1; it was not.

Interview with Mahdi Nazemroaya- Syria and Iran

Good interview with Mahdi Nazemroaya-

Discussion will focus on Washington's rage for more Middle East war as it targets Syria and Iran for regime change.

Download this episode (right click and save)

Worth listening to, interesting for noting that the previous Israeli attack on Lebanon had an ultimate goal of Syria. Mahdi to his credit does not shy way from mentioning the Israeli involvement in the destabilization of Syria.

Flashback!

I have had these two news stories below bookmarked for quite a while now.
So long in fact it seems the first one is only available via cache.
For those who may not know, Mahdi is Canadian.
He was in Libya. He was only able to leave Libya with the help of others. Not Canada.
Their may have been a concerted effort to impede his leaving Libya.
A cached page on this news here

His reports were often critical of the NATO operation in Libya, as well as of the rebel forces and transitional council now in control.

"I was threatened there through different channels," he said, though he would not elaborate.


He alleges there was an effort to not allow him to leave on board an evacuation ship, but he could not specify which groups might have been responsible.


As rebel forces in Libya continue trading fire with forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, Canadian technology is helping them learn where to shoot.

The Aeryon Scout Micro UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), designed and built in Waterloo, Ontario by Aeryon Labs Inc., was chosen by Libya’s Transitional National Council (TNC) to acquire intelligence on the positions of Col. Gaddafi’s forces to help coordinate their attacks. In cooperation with Ottawa’s Zariba Security Corp., TNC troops in the North African country have already put the three-pound, backpack-sized drone to work on the front lines.


The media loved to portray Libya as a people's rebellion. When it was nothing of the sort.
It is a replay for Syria.

55 percent of Syrians support Assad- Obama can only dream...

You read that right. 55 percent of Syrians support Assad.

Do 55 percent of Americans support Obama?
No, they do not!
Borrowing the latest from RealClear Politics
President Obama has a 47 percent job approval rating.

Friday, January 20
President Obama Job ApprovalRasmussen ReportsApprove 47, Disapprove 52

Which means most Americans do not approve of Mr Obama's presidency.

So how detached from reality is this headline? US: Assad losing control, his fall inevitable, White House says

Perhaps the Syrian leadership should make the claim that President Obama has already lost control of his nation and his fall is inevitable. At least that would be closer to the truth.

Let's read together the news of Assad's 55 percent approval rating. In a poll conducted and funded by the Qatar foundation.


Suppose a respectable opinion poll found that most Syrians are in favour of Bashar al-Assad remaining as president, would that not be major news?

Especially as the finding would go against the dominant narrative about the Syrian crisis, and the media considers the unexpected more newsworthy than the obvious.
Alas, not in every case. When coverage of an unfolding drama ceases to be fair and turns into a propaganda weapon, inconvenient facts get suppressed. So it is with the results of a recent YouGov Siraj poll on Syria commissioned by The Doha Debates, funded by the Qatar Foundation. Qatar’s royal family has taken one of the most hawkish lines against Assad – the emir has just called for Arab troops to intervene – so it was good that The Doha Debates published the poll on its website. The pity is that it was ignored by almost all media outlets in every western country whose government has called for Assad to go.

Some 55% of Syrians want Assad to stay, motivated by fear of civil war – a spectre that is not theoretical as it is for those who live outside Syria’s borders.

Biased media coverage also continues to distort the Arab League’s observer mission in Syria. When the league endorsed a no-fly zone in Libya last spring, there was high praise in the west for its action. Its decision to mediate in Syria was less welcome to western governments, and to high-profile Syrian opposition groups, who increasingly support a military rather than a political solution. So the league’s move was promptly called into doubt by western leaders, and most western media echoed the line. Attacks were launched on the credentials of the mission’s Sudanese chairman. Criticisms of the mission’s performance by one of its 165 members were headlined. Demands were made that the mission pull out in favour of UN intervention.

The critics presumably feared that the Arab observers would report that armed violence is no longer confined to the regime’s forces, (it never was confined to regime forces) and the image of peaceful protests brutally suppressed by army and police is false. Homs and a few other Syrian cities are becoming like Beirut in the 1980s or Sarajevo in the 1990s, with battles between militias raging across sectarian and ethnic fault lines. (foreign militias armed by NATO)

As for foreign military intervention, it has already started.(that has been obvious to this blogger since about June 2011) It is not following the Libyan pattern since Russia and China are furious at the west’s deception in the security council last year. They will not accept a new United Nations resolution that allows any use of force. The model is an older one, going back to the era of the cold war, before “humanitarian intervention” and the “responsibility to protect” were developed and often misused. Remember Ronald Reagan’s support for the Contras, whom he armed and trained to try to topple Nicaragua’s Sandinistas from bases in Honduras? For Honduras read Turkey, the safe haven where the so-called Free Syrian Army has set up. (death squads my friends, death squads)

Here too western media silence is dramatic. No reporters have followed up on a significant recent article by Philip Girald.

Giraldi states that Turkey, a Nato member, has become Washington’s proxy and that unmarked Nato warplanes have been arriving at Iskenderum, near the Syrian border, delivering Libyan volunteers and weapons seized from the late Muammar Gaddafi’s arsenal. “French and British special forces trainers are on the ground,” he writes, “assisting the Syrian rebels, while the CIA and US Spec Ops are providing communications equipment and intelligence to assist the rebel cause, enabling the fighters to avoid concentrations of Syrian soldiers …”

How many posts have I done covering these exact issues?

Just a sampling....

November 21, 2011:Syria's demise- A gift to Israel. Ruin for Palestinians.

November 28/2011: Libya to Syria : Guns for Human rights?

November 09/2011: Goal: Regime Change Syria

December 07/2011:Syria- The beat goes on, Part 2 (death squads & Ambassador Ford garner special attention)

December 13/2011:
Syria- The beat goes on: Part 3 (Special Ops involvement noted here)

I have bored readers to tears with dozens and dozens of Syrian posts. I have typed till I ran out of articles to quote from and time to put it all together. Or until my wrists start killing me?
Syria is being torn apart by NATO intervention!!!
It has been clear since March of 2011.

And yet 55 percent of the population of Syria supports Assad.
With huge demonstrations. Massive outpourings.
All the while the Western leadership and media continue on touting war in the name of humanitarianism.
Claiming an unpopular leader is on the verge of falling.
A leader who is more supported by his populace then the leader of the US is supported by his!
How insane is this supposed version of reality?
Where black is white/white is black and humanitarianism is a cover for mass killing?

Thai 'terror' with a Libyan twist?

Boy, oh boy. The Thai 'terror' plot grows ever more curious.....
Why, we even have a connection to Libya appearing.

Libya! Of all places. You may recall Libya? It suffered horrific bombing and slaughter of innocents at the hand of NATO bombers and terrorist fighters brought in and trained by NATO or specific countries under the NATO umbrella. Israel played a unique role in the destruction of that nation too.

Is this the future for Thailand?

First if you are not up to speed. Start reading here, then onto this post, and then recap yesterdays post.

A quick overview-

Approximately mid December 2011 Israel warns Thailand (and the US) of a terror threat, linked to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Yes, boys and girls the entire Hezbollah narrative originated with Israel. Not a surprise, really.
Then on the 13th of January/2012, yes that is Friday the 13th, there is an arrest- Of a Swedish national, complete with Swedish passport, by all appearances a valid one.
No verifiable Hezbollah connection except for claims made by Israel.....

Yesterday I put up a news article, where it was reported that the fertilizer was miraculously found in a building rented by the police.
And claims that said chemicals had been put there some time ago.

Let's examine that claim further or more accurately let's read the police response to that claim
Bankgkok Post


Note the visual reinforcement of the Israel victim theme. And, why not show Israeli security standing guard?


About the building housing the fertilizer..

Deputy national police chief Pansiri Prapawat, head of the investigators handling the case, yesterday rejected claims by Democrat spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut that police had set up the raid to clear themselves of suspicion in the cache.

Mr Chavanond said it was widely known among residents that it was actually police who rented the building.


The police are sticking to their claims but then this sentence?? What does this mean?

Checks had found a policeman also rented the building for workers to stay, but only for two months.


So a policeman had also rented the building for workers to stay? What workers?
Stay where? Stay in the building?
For two months only? Which two months?
Not mentioned at all.

What this check does is offer confirmation of police renting the building. Which corroborates the claim made by the Democrat spokesperson- The police rented the building and could have placed the fertilizer there. The police are connected to the building.

Now onto the Libyan connection- From "The Local" Sweden's News in English

A little background first-

Atris took Swedish citizenship after marrying a Swedish woman in 1996, Israeli news site Ynet reported.

According to his wife, Atris was in Thailand on business at the time of his arrest.

“He's travelled to Thailand several times previously and purchased goods which he then sold in Lebanon” Rania Koubaisi, Atris's wife, told the newspaper from her current home in Libya.

She denied suspicions that her husband was a terrorist.

“Why would he do something like this? I'm one hundred percent sure that this is a misunderstanding,” she told the newspaper.


His wife from her current home in Libya? A Swedish woman named Rania Koubaisi? Speaking from her current home in Libya? From Sweden to Libya? Why? When?

Thailand's Terror- This Fertilizer stink has been smelled before!

Still thinking about the "terror in Thailand" nonsense.

When I first put up the story Thailand police were saying no charges were laid because the individual who had been arrested had actually done anything.

Authorities said charges had not been pressed against Hussein because of lack of evidence that he had committed an offence.

Suddenly we have charges being pressed and this individual confessing to knowing the whereabouts of some fertilizer?

The fertilizer angle is really curious.... as in suspicious, as in "where have I heard this before"?
Read this- Pundits cast doubts over Bangkok Terror Claims

Specifically this little tidbit


Democrat spokesman Chavanond Intarakomalyasut said yesterday the police seizure of the bomb-making materials in Samut Sakhon was a police set-up.

Mr Chavanond said it was widely known among residents that it was actually police who rented the commercial building in the Mahachai area and the fertilisers and the ammonium nitrate had been kept there for "quite some time".

It was the police who rented the commercial building and the fertilizers and ammonium nitrate had been there for quite some time.

Digression alert!

How familiar is this scenario to those who follow the news of various alleged terrorist groups and their fertilizer/bomb fantasies?

Toronto 18- The RCMP delivered "fertilizer" to a warehouse that had been rented by two of their moles. The money for the rental had to have been provided for by either CSIS or the RCMP. The moles then took delivery of the "bomb making"material.
One got a nice chunk of change for his dealings- 4 million dollars.
But he was" not motivated by the money"- riiiiiiight......
This scenario has played itself out verbatim in many other places. Portland and the "Christmas tree" bomber is another recent intelligence delivered explosive set up.
There was one in Miami and many, many others....




Ok, now that we have gotten that out of the way.....

Fertilizers delivered to a building rented by the police in Thailand. Fertilizers that had been present in the building for " quite some time"

Then this Lebanese angle.
A claim with nothing really to back it up.
Here is what appears to be factual. This guy has documentation indicating he is Swedish.



In this article Swedish officials make some odd claims


Anders Jorle, a spokesman for the Swedish Foreign Ministry, said the Swedish passport had expired.

Then Mr Jorles says. "We cannot confirm whether he is a Swedish national."

Nor can they deny it!
And they don't.
Keep that in mind.

The picture of the passport indicates the passport has NOT expired.
It is good till Sept 2015.
And it is a Swedish passport.
So far there is nothing, absolutely nothing indicating this man is attached to Hezbollah. Other then claims via the msm.
There is however documentation linking him to Sweden. And Sweden is NOT denying he is a Swedish national, they are just not confirming it.

Interesting bits from this article-

Lebanese media has contacted members of Hezbollah, a political party in Lebanon, and were informed of this

The arrested man "is not one of Hezbollah's members", said Ghaleb Abu Zeinab, a Hezbollah political bureau member, according to the Lebanese Broadcasting Corp.


And of course the Israeli's as a target connection/possibility is reinforced.
I view this in a different light.
How perfect is the set up in Thailand for covert ops?
Destabilization? Carried on right out in the open?
Well read on....


"Bangkok's Jewish Chabad House, permanently guarded by Israeli and Thai security.

Upstairs is a Jewish-only floor with a small orthodox synagogue segregated according to gender, plus free telephone lines from Bangkok to Israel, Internet terminals and other travelers' facilities."

How convenient is that ?
"Free phone lines and internet" directly to Israel, for Jews only.
Perfect for covert activities of all kinds. Get orders, confirm actions.
All from the safety and security of your Jews only segregated area with direct contact to the mothership.

After all it was Israel that first warned Thailand and the US of the alleged terror threat.

"On December 18, Israel reportedly told the US and Thailand about the presence of at least two Hezbollah members in Bangkok."


Perhaps that was about the time all the cards had fallen into place?

Video Equipment at Dungeon House- US/Israel Spring Drills called off

I just want to follow up on a couple of news stories-

First the Pickering dungeon house (both parts accessible at link)

There is a video here

Was there electricity in the building?
There is an electrical outlet shown in the video, not sure how or if it is relevant to the alleged dungeon room? Given the home had been lived in for many, many years prior to it's abandonment.
Also, noting there was video equipment and furniture found in the dungeon room itself.
It is unknown whether these items had been removed prior to the fire?

Video equipment?


Second, a follow up to this post- US Troops & Radar deployed to Israel- Drills to follow

It was recently being reported that the US and Israel have decided to postpone these exercises.
Why?
It seems "budgetary constraints" is the reason given....
Myself, I am not buying that excuse. So why, really?
Or is this a ruse entirely?

Israel and the United States have agreed to postpone a major joint military drill scheduled for spring, Israeli public radio reported on Sunday, saying budgetary constraints were behind the delay.

The radio, citing military sources, reported that the exercises, codenamed "Austere Challenge 12," would be pushed back to the end of 2012.

Despite the postponement, there were no changes to a visit to Israel by top US military chief General Martin Dempsey, scheduled to arrive later this week for meetings with Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Chief of Staff Benny Gantz.

The postponed military exercises were to include thousands of American and Israeli soldiers in the largest missile defence manoeuvres ever held by the allies.

The postponement, attributed to budgetary constraints, also comes as media reports suggest disagreement between Israel and Washington over a possible military strike on Iran.

Israel and the United States have a longstanding strategic alliance and are jointly developing the Arrow anti-ballistic missile system.
Shown below-




In November, the Israeli state staged a major civil defence drill in the Tel Aviv region aimed at simulating a response to conventional and non-conventional missile attacks.

The Swede, the Thai Terror Plot and the Israeli "backpacker" connection

Follow up to the news story I posted on Friday. Thanks for the interesting comments.
It appears to be time for a map!

Oh look, a map......



Relevant comment from Veritas

" Thai Oil reserves in the Gulf of Siam; there is a large Muslim community living on-land in the southern Isthmus of Kra where the off-shore Oilfields are situated, near Hua Hin, close to the border of Malaysia"

So we have oil and Muslims. Therefore we have those parties who covet oil and wish to eradicate Muslims at play.

In the article from Friday we read "A Lebanese suspect from the Hezbollah group"
Leading one to assume that this was an actual person from Lebanon that had been arrested.
This would have been a very incorrect assumption!
The individual arrested is a Swede.
From this article

"Priewpan said the man in custody, a Swedish national of Lebanese origin identified as Attiris Hussein,"


A Swedish national of Lebanese origin? Really?

Then this....

Authorities said charges had not been pressed against Hussein because of lack of evidence that he had committed an offence.


Odd, isn't that?
We have read reports of other persons having the book thrown at them for possessing "terrorist" material.
Or persons arrested and charged for discussing potential "terror" scenarios.
Not ever going through with them, merely discussing them, usually with undercover officers- of the intelligence variety.
Or persons meeting with individuals who may or may not be involved in something.
Cases such as the Toronto 18 or Jihad Jane come to my mind.

But here we have a Swedish national, allegedly of Lebanese descent, thought to be linked to pro-Iranian Hezbollah militants.
Thought to be?
Had he travelled from Sweden to Thailand? Had he stopped along the way somewhere?
Or had he come from elsewhere?
I do wonder.

From this article-

Thailand also seeks to keep friendly relations with Iran.
Iran is a major trading partner, especially as a top market for Thai rice.

Could this have been a warning to Thailand, from Israel and the US?
Had the US and Israel "warned" Thailand of this threat as a threat to Thailand?
Did the successful arrest of the Swedish man thwart a potential false flag operation?
An operation, created by Israel and the US, to terrorize Thailand and put Iran and Syria on the hot seat?

The nations that issued "travel alerts" were the usual suspects, the NATO nations of the US, Canada, Britain & Israel.

The specific part of Thailand that was mentioned as a potential target is a favourite of Israeli "backpackers"

From Haaretz



The Beit Chabad near Khao San Road in Bangkok, in October. A hub for Israeli backpackers in Thailand.


Israeli backpackers?

A section of an article from the Bangkok Post

The Israeli connection


With Thai backpacking still in its infancy, networks of Thai guest houses and travel agents abroad have not yet developed the way they have for travellers coming to Thailand.

Young Israelis, for example, can travel with ease throughout Thailand without having to eat Thai food, learn Thai or even speak English. Some 40,000 Israelis come to Thailand every year. They can stay in guest houses like Chalab House on Rambuttri Road where staff speak Hebrew, eat at restaurants in the area that serve only Mediterranean food, go to Friday prayer services in Hebrew, patronise travel agencies that deal only with Israeli travellers and travel by minivans full of other Israelis to mountain or beach bungalows full of other travellers from home.

According to Joshua Schmidt, a lecturer at Ben Gurion University, for young Israelis just released from mandatory military service, "travel is a pressure valve for stressed youth", a journey of pure escapism. Israel, a country of only 5.2 million, may have the biggest per capita expat community in the world _ with 40,000 a year of those recently discharged coming here to taking advantage of Ha'Kesher Ha'Yisraeli, or the Israeli connection prevalent throughout Thailand's tourist destinations.

Mr Schmidt suggested volunteer work as a way for Israelis to break from the travel circuit and their own insularity. "That's why Thais sometimes find them rude," he said. "Thailand for them is a function rather than a goal." About local rites, foods and customs, he added matter-of-factly, "They couldn't care less."


Thailand for them is a function rather then a goal?
What function is visiting Thailand serving for the Israeli military? Oh and why do the Israelis even bother to go if they just drag the spectre of Israel with them? Or is that the intent? Not to visit, but, to invade?

The more I look into this one, the more my initial reaction of "false flag potential anyone" is appearing to be on the money as the saying goes.

Israel warns Thailand of possible terrorist attack

Not really sure what to make of this news story?
I find it so improbable.
But here goes.....

A Lebanese suspect from the Hezbollah group has been taken into custody by Thai officials and police are investigating further," Chalerm Yoobamrung told Reuters.

"Following concern raised by the Israeli embassy about a possible attack by a group of Lebanese terrorists in Bangkok, Thai police officials had been coordinating with Israeli officials since before the New Year."

In Jerusalem, Israel's Counterterrorism Unit issued a "severe travel warning" to nationals, advising against travel to Bankok "in the near future," and to "avoid congregating at known spots favored by Israelis, watch out for suspect items and not to accept packages from strangers in Bangkok."

Defence Minister Yuthasak Sasiprapha said Thai and U.S. intelligence officials were monitoring the movements of other individuals and were stepping up precautions in areas deemed to be at risk such as tourist sites and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport.

A defence ministry source said Israeli intelligence had contacted Thai officials on December 22 with information that two or three suspects could be planning an attack in Thailand. However, the individuals travelled to the south and left the country.

The Israelis alerted Thai officials again on January 8 of the danger of an attack around January 13 to 15 in areas where there are often large concentrations of Western tourists, such as the Khao San Road, which is popular with young backpackers.

The arrest was made after the second Israeli warning, the source said, adding that Thai security officials were working

closely with the United States and Israel.

Defence Minister Yuthasak said the Israeli embassy and synagogues could also be targeted and that the attacks could come in the form of car bombs.

"Thai officials had not intended to release the news at this time since it could have an impact on tourism and cause panic among citizens," he said, noting that the U.S. embassy naturally was concerned about the safety of Americans.

Earlier, the U.S. embassy had warned of a possible attack by "foreign terrorists" and told its citizens to be careful in areas of the capital frequented by tourists.

"We're warning all U.S. citizens to take caution when visiting public areas where Western tourists are known to gather in Bangkok," said Walter Braunohler, a spokesman at the embassy, declining to give further details.

Bangkok, a magnet for tourists with its vibrant nightlife and a transit point for those heading for Thailand's beaches, has gone through periods of violent political turmoil in recent years but threats of foreign attacks are rare.

Hezbollah, a Shi'ite Islamist group in Lebanon backed by Syria and Iran, is on the official U.S. blacklist of foreign terrorist organizations.

False flag potential, anyone?

Putin's Favorite State Owned Banks

Bankers and Russia. Specifically State owned banks expanding and controlling the majority of the market. Is this the "problem" with Russia?
The problem requiring destabilization?
Does the problem boil down to private bankers? And their ability to plunder with impunity being impeded?



Picture from linked article

Interesting article from Bloomberg : Vladimir Putin's Favorite Bankers

Russian authorities are building up the investment banking arms of state-run Sberbank and VTB Group, ranked the country’s biggest and second-biggest lenders. They have blessed or orchestrated a string of mergers and acquisitions, including Sberbank’s $1 billion takeover of brokerage Troika Dialog, to be completed in February. VTB last year bought Bank of Moscow and TransCreditBank. The deals give state-owned banks more than 60 percent of the domestic market for underwriting corporate bonds, up from 34 percent in 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.


State owned banks getting a bigger piece of the pie then private banks?

The government-run banks are gaining market share by keeping fees low, says Kraus, the asset manager: “They don’t have to make money on every deal.” That suits local companies fine. “We like to get the lowest rates possible for financing, so it’s better for Russian issuers that Sberbank and Russian banks become more sophisticated,” says Joshua Tulgan, director of corporate finance for Mobile TeleSystems, the No. 1 wireless operator. The company has had a 100 billion ruble ($3.15 billion) credit line with Sberbank since 2010 and expects to be offered a broader array of services following the Troika integration.


Government run banks gaining market share, keeping fees low and being ok with not making money on every deal?
Does this leave the foreign banks, having to partner with the state banks?



Three foreign bankers in Moscow, who asked not to be identified to avoid jeopardizing their firms, say the only way they can win business these days is by teaming up with VTB Capital on deals. “The international banks were cherry-picking the larger deals with higher margins,” says Todd Berman, whom Troika Dialog hired away from Bank of America last year to co-head investment banking. “They won’t be able to do that going forward.”


Bottom Line according to this article:

With the Kremlin’s help, state-owned banks have locked up 60 percent of Russia’s corporate debt underwriting market.

Interesting to note

It is claimed in the article this push for state bank expansion could not come at a better time, what with all the private banks in a mess.

The Kremlin’s push to create national champions in banking could not be better timed.

Cameraman from France2 television dies in Syria

Did you hear or read the news that a journalist was killed in Syria?
Have you noticed the vagueness with which this news is being covered?
Have you noticed that what is being implied via the main stream media is that somehow the Assad government or Assad personally was responsible for this death?
He isn't. Nor is the Syrian government as a whole. Nor is the Syrian Army.


Gilles Jacquier

The journalist (cameraman) was killed by the so called activists. The "Free Syrian Army". Muslim Brotherhood. Al Quaeda fighters brought in from Libya. Pick the perpetrator from the aforementioned groups.
Entertain the thought that it is possibly special ops from the US or the UK involved. Perhaps even Israeli military. Those are more realistic suspects.

"About 15 journalists were on the government trip when they were hit by several grenades, according to Jens Franssen, who was on the tour. "At some point, three or four (grenade) shells hit, very close to us,'' Franssen told the Belgian VRT network."


The attack took place in Hom/Homs We are always informed that this province is a "restive" province.
What Homs is, is a place whose inhabitants have been under attack by destabilizers.
Homs is very near Lebanon. If you have been following along then you are aware that so called "Syrian army" is on the border in that area. You have also had it brought to your attention that
all manner of weapons smuggling has been going on across the Lebanon/Syrian border

So let's cut through the bullshit and spin and read what is really going on.
It will only take a bit of common sense thinking to figure out who attacked the foreign journalists killing the cameraman from France.

The Assad government arranges for a bunch of foreign journalists to go on a tour of varying areas of Syria.
Supporters of the Assad government come out enmasse to demonstrate for their own government.
This would be a blow to the propaganda campaign that has been so skillfully waged via the main stream media. And the social media outlets.
Pictures of the average Syrian supporting Assad, in the areas we have been repeatedly informed are "restive", getting out to the world.... unthinkable!

So which party stood to lose the battle for hearts and minds if a pro-Assad picture was painted for the world?
Who was going to be "the biggest loser" in the media campaign if pictures of the people supporting their own government were released to the world?
Come on this is easy!
The obvious answer is the destabilizers were set to lose. Their lies exposed.
Clearly this cannot be allowed to happen!
So you as a terrorist/destabilizer lob a bunch of grenades at the journalists, you know some of them are going to connect. And it really doesn't matter with which one. If you happen to kill some Syrians who were showing their support for Assad, all the better. Killing two birds with one stone as the saying goes. Now that's the way to do it!

Then you have the destabilizers get their video footage uploaded to YouTube right on time.
Is it from this incident? Or is it not?
It doesn't matter because the destabilizers know it will be picked up by the compliant media and reported. And many useless feeders will get over to YouTube to be shocked and appalled by the carnage of the attack. And that is what will stick in their feeble minds. The graphic imagery.

Video footage posted on Youtube appeared to show the aftermath of the attack, with people frantically loading the injured into cars. There were pools of blood on the ground. The authenticity of the footage, however, could not be independently verified.

Then the main stream media will start spinning this as the Assad government's fault.

"It's up to Syrian authorities to ensure the security of international journalists on their territory" Alain Juppe

It would seem to me that the Assad government would have done their utmost to ensure the security of the international journalists.
It would seem to me in all this time the Assad government have attempted to keep the country secure, the people secure, the institutions secure, the pipelines secure etc., etc.,

What the real problem is....where Alain Juppe should have placed the blame, is with the destabilizers.
Armed, trained, financed and originating from the NATO nations. Including France.
While Mr Juppe is playing up for the camera's, for the audience of the gullible, whilst shedding crocodile tears for the family etc.,
Behind the scenes his government is high fivin' their terrorist cohorts and partners in crime for a job well done.
This man's blood and the tears of his family stain the government of France.
For their complicity in his killing, within the NATO structure.

A "car bomb" kills Iranian scientist

A nuclear scientist.
How many nuclear scientists have been killed under very suspicious circumstances in the past year or so? If you don't know the answer is 4.


Iran points a finger at Israel. I am sure the msm will spin that as "antisemetism"
Which is nonsense. The first nation that came to my mind as the likely culprit behind this murder and terrorism was Israel. Israel has made it loud and clear they want Iran-GONE.

Besides : Israel ‘not shedding tear’ over deadly Iran blast
And really....why would they?

The blast came a day after Israel’s chief of staff said 2012 would be a “critical” year for Iran.

JERUSALEM: A senior Israeli official on Wednesday gave a cryptic reaction to a car bomb which killed an Iranian nuclear scientist, saying he was unaware who did it but calling it an act of “revenge.”

”I don’t know who took revenge on the Iranian scientist, but I am definitely not shedding a tear,” Israeli military spokesman Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai wrote on his official Facebook page.

I have my doubts this fellow doesn't know who or why or how the scientist was killed

Interesting article here. The terror/murder comes at a very opportune time.

Parsi: Assassination to scuttle talks

There are also actors that escalate at times time not to strengthen their position at the talks, but to scuttle the talks. The attack on the British embassy in Tehran late last year was partly motivated by the desire of one political faction in Iran to undo the talks. Yesterday’s assassination of another Iranian nuclear scientist was likely conducted by a regional actor who prefers a military confrontation with Iran over a compromise that would permit Iran to retain nuclear enrichment capabilities, even if it doesn’t build a bomb.

What regional "actor" or nation state fits that description to a tee?


Interesting commentary from the Guardian. -

This covert war on Iran is illegal and dangerous.

As are all covert wars. But danger and issues of legality have never stopped warmongers previously.


These days, more than ever, news from Iran is surrounded in mystery. Whether it's the assassination of nuclear scientists, explosions at military bases, the spread of a computer worm or even the downing (or crash) of a US spy drone.......

Worth reading for a good overview on just how many attacks have taken place on Iran already. For the past two years now

How come the UN is so silent? Just wondering?

Part 2: The dungeon house, the fire and the questions

Following up on yesterday's post, the bizarre dungeon house and the conveniently timed fire.....

Aangirfan
had done a brief post on this story. In that post is contained this little tidbit.
Before I get to that, let me place the video here that is contained in the preceding post.




This video was shot by a photographer for the Toronto Star. Who was on the receiving end of a "welcome wagon" when he shot the video.

Contained within this article, is the response to the intrepid reporters investjgation

" the suspicious eye of a roving government-hired security guard, who, along with four police officers, rushed to the area to deal with a curious Star reporter Tuesday morning."
It was a given that after the containment room/dungeon was found in the abandoned home, security would or should have appeared. I would assume 24 hour, round the clock security, would have been undertaken at the house.
After all, one would think that there would be a great deal of interest in who had constructed the dungeon. Therefore surveillance would be undertaken to see who comes and goes from the house.
Where was the surveillance the night the house burned down to it's foundation?
Isn't it odd that no one saw anything, or reported that the house was burning until it was very nearly gone. Where was the private security? Where were the police?

Smoke from a Pickering farmhouse seen through trees near Concession Road 7 in Pickering, Jan. 6, 2012.

Picture from this article

A fire has destroyed an abandoned farmhouse in Pickering that was the subject of a police investigation after a “confinement room” was discovered inside in November.

The fire reportedly started around 12 a.m. Friday at the 136-year-old farmhouse on Concession Road 7 at the York-Durham Line.

Durham Regional Police made an appeal for tips last month after contractors discovered a recently-built “confinement room” in the basement of the empty house that was slated for demolition. The workers alerted police who opened an investigation.

The first officers to arrive at the scene after the bizarre discovery was made in late November believed the room was built for the sole purpose of keeping someone captive.

Here is the report of the discovery from the Durham Regional Police
Is it interesting to note the gap in time from the date of discovery by the demolition person and notification of the police, to the date the police go public with the information.
Nearly a three week gap. Therefore the police had abundant time to investigate and gather evidence.....Or undertake other actions, as necessary.

19-Dec-2011 13:09 PST

Investigators are asking the public for assistance in locating the person(s) responsible for building a confinement-style room in an abandoned home in northwest Pickering.

On November 29, 2011, contractors surveying an abandoned residence on Concession Road 7 in northwest Pickering discovered recent construction had taken place in the basement of the residence. As the abandoned residence is slated for demolition, the contractor contacted Durham Regional Police.
