    The Citizens Electoral Council. I haven't had any feed back in the ALA thread, so I thought I might post some articles the CEC have released lately in a fresh thread. Thought provoking stuff. Makes you wonder who the sheep are.

    Australia must side with the opponents of ISIS, not the creators of ISIS
    If Islamic State inspired 15-year-old Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar to kill NSW Police accountant Curtis Cheng on 2 October, then the deadly consequences of recent Australian government foreign policy have now blown back onto the Australian people.
    Islamic State has not emerged as a backlash against Australia and our leading allies; it is the synthetic creation of our closest allies, with our government’s support.
    US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents from 2012 prove that Australia’s closest allies, the United States and the United Kingdom, along with France, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, knowingly fostered the rise of the Islamic State horror in Iraq and Syria, in order to achieve their regime change goal of overthrowing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The 12 August 2012 DIA document (released on 18 May 2015 under a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch) reads:
    “Opposition forces [to Assad] are trying to control the Eastern areas adjacent to the Western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar), in addition to neighbouring Turkish borders. Western countries [US, UK, France], the Gulf States and Turkey are supporting these efforts… If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality [Islamic State] in Eastern Syria and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition [US et al.] want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime….” (Emphasis added.) Beginning with Kevin Rudd, successive Australian governments fully supported the Anglo-American regime change objective; by extension, they at least condoned the unleashing of a dark-ages “death cult” to achieve it.
    Now Russia has intervened—at the invitation of Syria and therefore legally under international law—to destroy ISIS and the other extreme Islamist jihadists such as the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al Nusra Front, and who is screaming the loudest? The very governments identified in the DIA documents as responsible for ISIS in the first place: the US, UK, France and Saudi Arabia.
    (Interestingly, Turkey, which is also named in the DIA documents, and which the western media is reporting is hostile to Russia for flying over its territory, is actually contradicting the media and insisting that Turkey-Russia relations are very good and that Russia’s intervention won’t lead to conflict between the two nations. Other nations impacted by ISIS, including Iran and America’s client-state Iraq, are enthusiastic about Russia’s intervention. European nations which are struggling to deal with the flood of refugees from Syria also acknowledge that Russia’s action is right.)
    In 10 days Russia has successfully hit more than 100 ISIS locations, including a bomb-making facility, command posts and munitions depots. Contrary to the propaganda claims of the western media, the Russians are using very precise intelligence and precise targeting, using the most advanced technology. ISIS has been taken by complete surprise: there is panic in the ISIS strongholds and 600 ISIS jihadists are known to have fled their Raqqa headquarters. One ISIS complaint is that the US-led coalition bombings only occurred at dawn, but the Russians are engaging targets day and night, in any weather.
    Vladimir Putin’s intervention has completely outflanked Barack Obama and his re-badged neo-con agenda; the US President is decrying Russia’s success against ISIS, and condemning Russia for attacking the mythical “moderates” among the Syrian opposition, because they are his forces in his drive to overthrow Assad. Obama’s sometime foreign policy adviser Tony Blair—the war criminal who is the intellectual author of the regime change agenda that has destroyed the Middle East, in order to permanently end the principle of national sovereignty enshrined in the Treaty of Westphalia, the cornerstone of international law—is also howling. In their desperation to maintain Anglo-American global hegemony militarily even as the financial power of the City of London and Wall Street implodes, they had planned Syria as their next target in a series of regime changes that they fantasised would end with Russia and China, but which would have definitely ended in global thermonuclear war.
    The Australian people should welcome this reversal of Islamic State’s fortune, and demand our government do the same. More fundamentally, if we are serious about defeating the terrorism that we fear is rearing its head in Australia, we should demand that our government break with the imperial strategies of our allies who have consciously fostered and supported such terrorism for their geopolitical agenda. Finally, we should demand that our government collaborate with the BRICS alliance of nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—which are leading the push for a new international economic order that both respects national sovereignty and fosters peace through encouraging nations to cooperate on great economic development projects, such as China’s vision for a New Silk Road and Maritime Silk Road.

    Is Malcolm Turnbull another Goldman Sachs hit man?
    Newly sworn in Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has a big black mark on his curriculum vitae, in the name of Goldman Sachs, that should ring alarm bells. Goldman Sachs’s influence in government the world over has been a story of misery and economic destruction. This, the most powerful investment bank in the world was in large part responsible for causing the 2007-08 global financial crisis and the current economic crisis in Greece, among other nations; its business model, based on sleight-of-hand, takes from the majority to benefit an elite minority. Instead of growing the economic pie to benefit all, Goldman Sachs chokes funding for productive industries in favour of supporting asset and commodity price inflation.
    Turnbull made his fortune as Chairman and Managing Director of Goldman Sachs Australia in 1997-2001. BRW magazine estimated his tenure at Goldman Sachs was worth $50 million. Will he follow the same economic prescription of looting common to other former Goldman Sachs operatives? If history is a guide, Australia is in for trouble. In 2009 Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone magazine described the firm as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.” Taibbi documented Goldman Sachs’s history of influencing policy by installing their economic hit men in government and central banks.
    A list of prominent Goldman Sachs former employees indicates the extent to which this firm dominates governments around the world. Henry Paulson is perhaps the most notable Goldman Sachs hit man. After serving as CEO for Goldman Sachs in 1999-2006, working closely with Turnbull, he moved to hold the office of United States Secretary of the Treasury in 2006-09 under President George W. Bush. Paulson was the architect of the 2008 bailout of Wall Street, funnelling trillions of dollars to his old friends who had caused the meltdown of the global financial system.
    Other notable Goldman Sachs hit men include Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank, who has overseen quantitative easing money printing to purchase trashy bonds while ramming austerity on the population; Robert Rubin, who personally made $126 million from the merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group, which he approved as US Treasury Secretary and which required the fateful repeal of Glass-Steagall; and Mark Carney, Bank of England Governor, who in addition to coordinating quantitative easing, as Chair of the Financial Stability Board, has been plotting with Draghi for a global bail-in regime á la Cyprus-style confiscation of bank deposits.
    Taibbi identified how Goldman Sachs manipulated five bubbles starting with the speculative mania in the late 1920s leading to the October 1929 crash and Great Depression of the 1930s.
    While Turnbull was boss at Goldman Sachs in Australia, his firm was key in pumping up the 1990s tech stock bubble. Taibbi quoted a prominent hedge-fund manager explaining that “their analysts were out there saying Bull****.com is worth $100 a share.” It was clear they knew this was a fraud—everyone on the inside knew it! Nicholas Maier, the syndicate manager of Cramer & Co. said Goldman Sachs was the worst perpetrator: “They totally fuelled the bubble. And it’s specifically that kind of behaviour that has caused the market crash. They built these stocks upon an illegal foundation—manipulated up—and ultimately, it really was the small person who ended up buying in.” Turnbull personally profited from this bubble through OzEmail, the first Australian tech stock listed on the NASDAQ. He was concurrently chief at Goldman Sachs and Chairman of OzEmail Ltd in 1999 when he turned his $450,000 investment in OzEmail into $59.3 million in cash through the $520 million sale of this internet service provider to the American telecommunications juggernaut MCI WorldCom, the rapid expansion of which was a phenomenon of the tech bubble. Turnbull’s timing was good: just three years later WorldCom imploded in the largest bankruptcy in corporate history, and in 2005, iiNet acquired OzEmail for just $110 million.
    Next came the subprime housing bubble leading to the massive mortgage meltdown in 2007. By the peak of this boom in 2006, Goldman Sachs was underwriting US$76.5 billion worth of mortgage-backed securities—a third of which were subprime—much of it to institutional investors including a hedge fund run by Australia’s Basis Capital, which got stuck with US$78 million worth of the notorious investment product called Timberwolf. Hundreds of Australian investors—including retirees, charities and councils—lost a fortune in Basis Capital. However, the bankers at Goldman Sachs behind the scam profited from everyone’s misery. In 2006, the bank’s payroll jumped to $16.5 billion—an average of $622,000 per employee.
    In 2007-08 Goldman Sachs shifted focus from paper to commodity speculation, especially oil. They persuaded pension funds and other large institutional investors to invest in oil futures, which skyrocketed as the price of a single barrel went from around $60 in the middle of 2007 to a high of $147 in the summer of 2008. The bubble burst, Goldman Sachs made a fortune and once again the big losers were ordinary people.
    The smiling assassins from Goldman Sachs are now deeply committed to a new bubble in carbon trading. Turnbull has long advocated an emissions trading scheme that will do nothing to change climate in any measureable sense, but will certainly help his investment banking friends make a killing in trading hot air. At the failed 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Conference Prime Minister Kevin Rudd became completely unhinged, ranting about Chinese “ratf--kers”. At the upcoming Paris climate conference in December, Turnbull will be a different player and certainly won’t be saying global warming is “absolute crap” as former PM Tony Abbott once said. Turnbull is already committed to a 26-28 per cent cut to 2005 emissions levels by 2030—an economic disaster awaiting us in itself, but the danger is that his record indicates he’ll be inclined to cut deeper.
    Turnbull’s Goldman Sachs methods are already damaging Australia in the Murray-Darling Basin food bowl. Given Goldman Sachs’s track record, it seems hardly coincidental that as John Howard’s Water Minister in 2007, Turnbull introduced the Murray-Darling Basin Plan’s regime of mandatory water restrictions and water trading, at the same time as Goldman Sachs was moving heavily into water speculation globally, buying up water rights and utilities and declaring water to be “the petroleum for the next century”. The MDB Plan is strangling irrigators; many water allocations are now close to zero and the cost of temporary water is sitting around an exorbitant $200 per megalitre.
    As reported by John Lyons in the 16 September 2014 Good Weekend of the Sydney Morning Herald, “Suddenly, he [Turnbull] can turn. The charmer becomes the menacer…. He laughs, and disarms, but always be on guard.” Lyons extensively documents Turnbull’s abrasive character; such a lack of humility and empathy befits a Goldman Sachs hit man, but does not bode well for Australia.
    The CEC is leading the fight in Australia for the policies that will destroy the power of financial predators such as Goldman Sachs: a full Glass-Steagall separation of banking to protect the real economy from speculation; and a government-owned-and-operated national bank to invest in economic development that benefits the entire nation. Join the fight against the financial predators and their political stooges, by joining the CEC.

    LaRouche Mobilizes to Shut Down Wall Street, As Bankers Shriek: "The System Is Cracking"

    October 6, 2015

    As you read this report, a strong delegation of LaRouche PAC organizers from New York City—seasoned veterans of Lyndon LaRouche's "Manhattan Project"—has arrived in Washington, D.C. to head up a day of organizing and lobbying on Capitol Hill on Oct. 7, to urge key responsible Congressmen and Senators to act at once to shut down Wall Street, and implement Glass-Steagall. As LPAC's 7-point statement, "For Urgent Attention of Congressmen, Senators and Other Members of the U.S. Government" specifies: "There is now an acute emergency which threatens to kill millions of Americans, primarily, and also citizens of other countries," which requires action now, this week.

    Panic among Wall Street and City of London bankers is evident just barely below the surface. The lead article in the Oct. 3-9 edition of the Economist, the banner publication for City of London financial interests, warns that "the system is cracking," and calls for a massive effort to backstop the bubble with new waves of quantitative easing—exactly as Lyndon LaRouche has warned is their intention. Similarly, Forbes magazine frets that "there are over $600 trillion in OTC [over-the-counter] derivatives outstanding" on the books of the mega-banks (although the real number is probably twice that amount), which could blow the entire system apart, once a run begins. "For the likes of JP Morgan, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, these issues remain a topic of life or death."

    The British Empire is also panicked because their errand-boy Barack Obama is sinking, and sinking fast, both inside the United States and internationally. The impact of the United Nations General Assembly, and Russian President Putin's bold actions in Syria, are rumbling around the planet, and people are waking up to the fact that a new international order is possible. They have watched as Putin took Obama to the cleaners in Syria, and not only survived to tell the story, but is going strong, while Obama is flailing about in frustration. The idea that "maybe we don't have to suffer Obama any more; maybe we don't need to submit to Wall Street and watch our nations die," is a growing force across the planet.

    This is a historic moment pregnant with potential, Helga Zepp-LaRouche has emphasized. It is a moment when we can not only sink Wall Street and reinstate Glass-Steagall, but also shift radically towards the policies of the World Land-Bridge and global reconstruction. The fact that leading scholars, think- tankers, and others in China have publicly endorsed the LaRouches' Land-Bridge policy, that the second largest economy in the world has essentially adopted that policy, is of dramatic import globally. Now that the Chinese-language edition of EIR's book "The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge" has been published with such powerful endorsements, we will bring that message back home to the United States, with a large-run publication of the Special Report, priced for broad circulation across the country.

    Lyndon LaRouche stated what is at stake, in his Oct. 5 weekly webcast with the LPAC Policy Committee:

    "We can no longer tolerate the risk which is involved in the renewal of Wall Street's conditions. And therefore, for that reason, we have to shut down Wall Street, in order to protect the people of the United States... We must take preemptive action. What we've done, and what I've pushed for, is to have an immediate decision, by relevant members of the Congress, to assemble and deal with the situation as such. That was, foreclose against Wall Street without letting them get a bail-0ut effort. Because the giving another option for bail-out to Wall Street would almost certainly ensure a great catastrophe of the people of the United States."

    "So therefore, we have to protect the population. We have to cancel Wall Street. And we have to proceed to restructure the organization of our employment for the intent of actually getting productive processes going into effect, essentially, a more exigent sort of requirement which Franklin Roosevelt did. But what Franklin Roosevelt suffered, and had to face and deal with, is minor compared to what this condition is of the United States right now."

    "But we have the means available, right at this critical point; we have the means internationally to create a solution for this problem."

    Wall Street Bankers Openly Discuss the Coming Crash: "The System Is Cracking"

    October 7, 2015

    As the LaRouche movement goes into high gear to shut down Wall Street and return to Glass-Steagall before a crash strikes, Wall Street and City of London bankers are now openly discussing the coming crash... and quietly panicking over how to handle it.

    The lead article in the Oct. 3-9 edition of the Economist, the banner publication for City of London financial interests, warns that "the system is cracking," and calls for an all-out effort to backstop the bubble with new waves of so-called quantitative easing—exactly as Lyndon LaRouche has warned is their intention. The article frets, however, that this hyperinflationary bailout policy may not work as it did in 2008, because the U.S. Congress might go instead for more regulation of the banks—although the article studiously avoids mentioning the feared words, "Glass-Steagall."

    A major problem today, the Economist writes, "is the lack of a backstop for the offshore dollar system if it faces a crisis. In 2008-09 the Fed reluctantly came to the rescue, acting as a lender of last resort by offering $1 trillion of dollar liquidity to foreign banks and central banks. The sums involved in a future crisis would be far higher. The offshore dollar world is almost twice as large as it was in 2007. By the 2020s, it could be as big as America's banking industry. Since 2008-09, Congress has grown wary of the Fed's emergency lending. Come the next crisis, the Fed's plans to issue vast swap lines might meet regulatory or congressional resistance."

    The Economist article concludes: "There are things America can do to shoulder more responsibility--for instance, by setting up bigger emergency swap lines with more central banks. More likely is a splintering of the system, as other countries choose to insulate themselves from Fed decisions by embracing capital controls. The dollar has no peers. But the system that it anchors is cracking."

    Similarly, Forbes magazine's Antoine Gara wrote on Oct. 2 about the danger of a new blowout, which unusually admits that the underlying problem is the gigantic pile of derivatives sitting on top of numerous nominal debt bubbles. Gara, in reviewing the current Glencore crisis, tries to whistle past the graveyard, arguing that "Glencore's unraveling won't turn into the next Lehman Brothers crisis." He says that is because Glencore does not have the derivatives exposure that Lehman had.

    But, he admits, "were Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, or any other large investment bank to be thrown into Glencore's current predicament, there would be good cause to worry about a Lehman 2.0. There are over $600 trillion in OTC derivatives outstanding [in actuality, there are probably double that amount--ed.], a greater number than prior to the crisis, and many of those contracts continue to trade bilaterally among banks, linking firms together."

    Gara concludes: "For the likes of JP Morgan, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, these issues remain a topic of life or death. Last quarter, each firm disclosed trillions, if not tens of trillions outstanding in OTC derivatives contracts. No amount of rising retained capital would
    protect those firms if there were a messy Lehman-like bankruptcy."

    British Lash Out in Defense of Their Man Obama and Wall Street

    October 14, 2015

    Lyndon LaRouche today pronounced both Bernie Sanders and fellow Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton politically dead, for their overt support of Barack Obama, including Clinton’s vociferous opposition to a return to the Glass-Steagall bill. That, LaRouche stated, leaves the Democratic Party and its Presidential campaign to be resuscitated by a radical return to the founding economic and philosophical principles of the U.S., as spearheaded by Lyndon LaRouche’s Manhattan Project.

    The developments on the U.S. campaign front are part of a growing international pattern of the British Empire lashing out to try to recoup from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s strategic flanking operations, and from generally being on the defensive over recent months. Over the weekend, they activated Bernie Sanders, who performed a sharp about-face on his views on Obama on the eve of the Oct. 13 Presidential debate, by praising British stooge Obama to the skies in an Oct. 11 TV interview.

    Another case of British-sponsored response to the existential threat to the survival of the British Empire, was the U.S. bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which Lyndon LaRouche denounced as an act of intentional murder by the British-run Obama.

    Over the past 24-48 hours, other elements to be considered as part of this pattern include:

    • A mortar attack on the Russian Embassy in Damascus Monday. Two rounds hit the embassy, as a pro-Russian demonstration was occurring outside. No one was hurt, but Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denounced the attack as “obviously a terrorist attack directed to most likely frighten the backers of the fight against terror and not allow them to win in the fight against extremism.”

    • A domestic terrorist plot was dismantled by Russian authorities, in response to their successful operation in Syria.

    • Obama and the Saudis are rearming the hard-hit Syrian terrorist apparatus with TOW anti-tank missiles and other weapons, at just the point that Syria and their Russian allies have them on the run.

    • The NATO military exercise “Steadfast Noon” was launched, and will run from Oct. 13-16 from the air base at Büchel, Germany, It will simulate the delivery of nuclear weapons from bombers, including German Tornado jets. It involves the U.S. and eight other NATO states: Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Czechia, Greece, and Turkey.

    • A policy brawl has also erupted inside the United Kingdom over what policies to pursue, both economically and strategically. That fight has now broken out on national television, with BBC “Panorama” running a show in shameless defense of a criminal pedophile ring which heavily intersects the British Monarchy.

    The removal of Barack Obama from the White House remains the most effective route to preventing the threat of thermonuclear war, and to finally burying the British Empire and its deadly policies.

    Obama's Team Boosting Bernie Sanders

    Obama political strategist David Axelrod, whom LPAC's sources confirm is still very much a member of the Obama inner circle, despite no longer having a White House office, pumped Bernie Sanders on the eve of the first Democratic Party debate as "utterly authentic," as opposed to Hillary Clinton, whom he labelled as on "super probation ... when it comes to inauthenticity."

    Axelrod's public talk matches reports given to LPAC that Sanders does have a "window" with Obama's White House.

    Axelrod had also puffed Sanders a month earlier, then as "thoroughly authentic," in a Sept. 18 speech in Chicago in which he identified "authenticity" as the quality which was key to the success of president George Bush and Barack Obama. Axelrod of course fails to admit that Bush and Obama are two of the United States's most authentically British Crown-owned candidates, whose combined terms have brought the U.S. to the brink of destruction.

    Sanders's fundraising success is being hailed by Axelrod as "stunning," and of far better quality than Hillary's contributions when the third quarter's results were reported. Axelrod, like top Al Gore 2000 strategist Ted Devine, who is now advising Sanders, assert that Sanders's fundraising has secured his place as a major factor in the Democratic presidential race.

    Neither Axelrod nor Devine mention, however, that Sanders's online fundraising apparatus was seconded to him by Obama's White House. Yahoo Politics picked up on this story, too, in an Oct. 7 piece ("How a Team of Obama Veterans Helped Bernie Sanders Pull in a Record Number of Donations") reporting on the "small guerilla-marketing team" now running Sanders's online fundraising operation, headed by Scott Goodstein and Arun Chaudhary, who ran Obama's 2008 online fundraising operation.

    Columnist Pam Martens Blasts Hillary Clinton for Opposing Glass-Steagall

    In the Oct. 13 issue of her regular column in WallStreetOnParade.com, financial columnist Pam Martens rips into Hillary Clinton as a "Wall Street Democrat... who has no intention of restoring the Glass-Steagall Act... which kept our financial system safe for 66 years."

    In an article co-authored with Russ Martens, she warns of another meltdown of the international financial system. "In reality, the dark, gathering, economic storm clouds are merely the second leg of the 2008 financial collapse, set in motion on November 12, 1999 when President Bill Clinton, surrounded by Wall Street sychophants, signed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act... which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933." She adds that the repeal of Glass-Steagal also "ushered in the greatest wealth transfer scheme in the history of America" by public bailouts for casino gambling by the mega-banks.

    On Oct. 12, Martens had issued a similar blast: "Hillary's transparently vapid proposals to tinker around the tattered edges of the Wall Street Democrats' Dodd-Frank illusion of reforming Wall Street (after two of America's largest banks became admitted felons just five months ago) rather than breaking up the banks and restoring the Glass-Steagal Act, should instantly disqualify her as a serious candidate for the Oval office among Democrats."

    Fascist policies smash Murray-Darling Basin
    Media Release Tuesday, 20 October 2015
    Sky-high water pricing and ecofascist water allocations in the Murray-Darling Basin threatens not only the existence of farmers and rural communities, but our entire nation and millions of people worldwide who depend upon our food and fibre exports. Temporary water now costs around $300 per megalitre (ML) and a significant El Niño event is under way which is expected to cause severe drought in Australia—under the current disastrous Basin Plan—that will see water prices escalate much further. Yet in California, despite the state’s four-year drought and record low water levels, irrigators are paying less than $20 per ML. When normal rainfall returns, they expect to pay $13 to $14.50 per ML.
    Dairy cows sold by desperate farmers dominated last week’s “chopper” or abattoir cattle sales in Shepparton. Rice growers planting this October are looking at a much-reduced crop with a number of farmers not planting at all given the exorbitant water prices. Many fruit growers across the Basin will not be able to afford the water to keep their trees alive.
    Senator John Madigan in parliament on 14 October made the point: “There is a water market in Australia that is out of control and is being manipulated. You can buy and sell water like stocks on the share market. Water trading has become an insider’s market of corruption and back-room deals, and farmers cannot compete. … People are walking off farms. People are committing suicide. This is the early death throes of one of our most important farming regions. And our Prime Minister, the former Minister for Water, seems to us to be unaware.”
    Liberal Senator Richard Colbeck justified the fact that water has previously even reached $700 per ML by saying “that is the way the market works”, insisting the Basin Plan was bipartisan.
    This is true. Both the ALP and Liberal parties, despite a few dissenting voices in their ranks, rammed through this ruinous Basin Plan and Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull is very aware, being one of the key architects of the Water Act 2007 as former Environment and Water Minister. Former Goldman Sachs investment banker Turnbull is perhaps the biggest champion of water trading and “environmental flows”, which ensure the water scarcity that creates profits for water speculators. The CEC in the September/October 2007 New Citizen documented the bipartisan plot to privatise the Murray-Darling Basin that has led to such a speculative water market, including Turnbull’s role as Environment Minister. At that time his friends at Goldman Sachs were leading a global charge of investment banks into water speculation, declaring water to be “the petroleum for the next century”.
    Huge volumes of water from three years of higher than average rainfall in 2010-12 (2010, with almost double the average, was the Basin’s wettest year on record) were not stored in dams to prepare for the now-looming El Niño event, but flushed out to sea or to swamps, otherwise known as Ramsar wetlands. Much of this water should have been stored in the Basin’s large reservoirs, including Lake Eucumbene, the Snowy Mountains Scheme’s largest storage; with a massive capacity equivalent to nine Sydney Harbours, it was designed to fill over several wet years to cover drought years, but it is now only 58 per cent full. The three next biggest Basin water storages, Dartmouth Dam, Lake Eildon and Hume Dam, with capacities of 3,856, 3,390 and 3,005 gigalitres (GL) respectively, are now at 63, 55 and 45 per cent of full capacity.
    The CEC reported in a media release on 14 December 2010 that Snowy Hydro, in government mandated “environmental flows”, was releasing 4,000-5,000 ML/day into the already flooded Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers, risking increased flood damage. And the following month our media release on 7 January 2011 reported that South Australia’s irrigators were limited to just 67 per cent of their allocation, forcing them to spend millions each month buying water from interstate, as the river rushed by in full volume out to sea.
    The Murray-Darling Basin has seen lower than average rainfall in 2013-14 and so far this year (January to September) rainfall is six per cent below average. Despite this lower rainfall and a forecast strong El Niño event, the Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) has continued “environmental flows” throughout this year with no care to the plight of agriculture.
    So-called “environmental flows” are also environmentally destructive. Numerous reports identify that some of these flows are so damaging that several metres of river frontage are lost to erosion. Riverside trees collapse under these man-made floods and silt has been clogging up pumps and tanks at rates never seen before. Additionally, hundreds of gigawatt hours of hydroelectricity generation are lost as Snowy Hydro is mandated to flush water down the Snowy River out to Bass Strait rather than pump it to Murray 1 and Murray 2 Power Stations as the architects of the Snowy Mountains Scheme designed.
    Last month Albury City Mayor Kevin Mack questioned the sense of releasing 8,700 ML of water daily from a half-empty Hume Dam: “It doesn’t make sense. All for what benefit? To keep the river fresh and alive? Well there won’t be any water left in the river at our end when they’re finished,” Cr Mack said. The answer to these questions is that this is ecofascism and has nothing to do with helping the environment, but is run top down from the British financial oligarchy and the British Crown for the purpose of population control as the CEC documented in the December 2010/January 2011 New Citizen.

    Bush-Cheney redux: Obama’s killer drone program and other crimes exposed!

    Barack Obama has taken Australia’s most important ally further along the despised Bush-Cheney regime’s morally-bankrupt path of trashing international law, regime change, extra-judicial murder and war crimes.
    The most egregious and disturbing of Obama’s crimes has been exposed by investigative-reporting website The Intercept, founded by Glenn Greenwald and others, which on 15 October published “The Drone Papers”. These comprise eight articles concerning America’s use of drone attacks in its post-9/11 wars, based upon leaked documents showing that President Obama, from his earliest days in office, ran a global assassination program from the White House Situation Room that killed thousands of people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Up to 90 percent of the estimated 5,000 victims of this mass-murder program were not even on Obama’s personally-signed target lists! They were classified as terrorists and enemy combatants post mortem to cover up the magnitude of Obama’s crimes. Australia is directly implicated in this criminal program, through the Pine Gap signals intelligence facility in the Northern Territory, which targets the drone strikes with its tracking technology.
    On Sunday, The New York Times Magazine published a lengthy reprisal of Seymour Hersh’s May 2015 exposé of the 2011 murder of Osama bin Laden, the first prominent American media coverage of the real story. To boost his re-election prospects, Obama, his then-counterterrorism advisor John Brennan, and others in his inner circle, blatantly lied about the circumstances of the raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan, fabricating an elaborate Hollywood-style fable touting the CIA’s sleuth work. In truth, a Pakistani officer had walked in years earlier and traded the precise location of the Al Qaeda leader for US$25 million. The White House also covered up the role of the Saudis, who for years paid for bin Laden’s safekeeping under the watchful eye of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence service (ISI).
    Meanwhile, Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières—MSF) has released new evidence that the US Air Force had deliberately bombed their hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, killing 22 patients and staff, and had then sent in heavy vehicles to plough over the evidence. An unnamed Pentagon source has confirmed that MSF had “done everything right” in documenting the location of the hospital so it was placed on an “off-limits” list of hospitals, schools and mosques—sites never to be attacked, even if there were Al-Qaeda or Taliban fighters present. It may be relevant that the bombing in Kunduz came after MSF had vowed to fight to defeat Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, because it would deny life-saving generic drugs to half a billion poor people around the world. MSF has demanded an independent investigation as provided by the Geneva Conventions to preclude a cover-up.
    Finally, anticipating Hillary Clinton’s 22 October appearance before the House Select Committee investigating the 11 September 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya,the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) aired a documentary on 18 October charging Obama, along with (in their roles at the time) Secretary of State Clinton, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, with lying to the American people about the assault in which US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American officials were killed. The ABC broadcast mirrored Lyndon LaRouche and Jeffrey Steinberg’s December 2012 National Press Club briefing, proving that Obama and Clinton knew even as the attack was underway that it was no “spontaneous demonstration” against the slandering of the Prophet Mohammed in a YouTube video, but a premeditated, heavily-armed assault by Libyan Al-Qaeda affiliates. The ABC also interviewed former Congressman Peter Hoekstra, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in 2004-07, who charged that Obama had betrayed Libyan leader Qadaffi—an ally in the war against Islamist terrorists since 2003—and had trained and armed the very terrorists who carried out the Benghazi slaughter.
    Like those of his despised predecessor, Obama’s actions reflect on America’s allies, including Australia. While Lyndon LaRouche and other patriotic Americans who are determined to restore their republic to constitutional rule seek to impeach Obama for his crimes, Australians should demand our government cease Pine Gap’s involvement with the drone murder program, as former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser called for in 2014, and end all cooperation with Anglo-American wars and other actions that are in breach of international law.

    The alternative to economic collapse and war:

    Zepp-LaRouche presents EIR’s New Silk Road report at Beijing symposium
    While Australia pursues its Jekyll-and-Hyde foreign policy of embracing China economically but participating in Obama’s “Asia Pivot” escalation against China militarily, the Citizens Electoral Council is issuing the following report from LaRouchePAC, to bring to the attention of the Australian people the growing momentum for a new paradigm of international relations, based on peace through economic development.
    The Chinese edition of Executive Intelligence Review’s special report The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge was officially presented by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the founder of the Schiller Institute, at a 29 September symposium sponsored by the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Beijing’s Renmin University. A new think tank established to provide analysis and policy recommendations as China and the world enters a new era of international relations, the Chongyang Institute is also a co-sponsor of the Chinese-language report.
    The genesis of a new paradigm
    Zepp-LaRouche explained her role in the germination of the idea known in China as “One Belt, One Road”. When the Soviet Union broke up, she and her husband, the economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche, had expanded the series of development programs they had worked on for decades into a scheme to link the entire Eurasian continent with a high-speed rail system, bringing the land-locked and newly independent nations of Central Asia, and the vast underpopulated and underdeveloped regions of Asiatic Russia, into the mainstream of international commerce and trade. The LaRouches dubbed this “The Eurasian Landbridge.”
    Early-1990s discussions with representatives of the Chinese government led to a 1996 conference in Beijing devoted to the implementation of this project, organised under the auspices of the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, where Zepp-LaRouche addressed leading experts from China and 34 other Eurasian countries. But the Asian financial crisis of 1997 and the Russia crisis of 1998 stalled the project, and it was only in September 2013 that Chinese President Xi Jinping revived the notion in his famous speech at Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan, where he called for the creation of a Silk Road Economic Belt to unite Europe and Asia.
    The concept of the New Silk Road points towards a new paradigm for mankind, Zepp-LaRouche told her audience, replacing the “geopolitics” which caused two world wars in the 20th century with the idea of the common aims of mankind, as reflected in Xi Jinping’s “win-win policy.”
    She then elaborated on the crisis in the Middle East and the massive flow of refugees into Europe from areas torn by Bush and Obama’s (and Blair and Cameron’s) wars. Many European nations now recognise that there must be a change in policy to address the root causes of the refugee crisis, she said. It is not enough to fight so-called Islamic extremists militarily; there must also be a real economic reconstruction of the entire region to create a future for the young people now being attracted to violent jihad.
    “We can extend the Silk Road to the Middle East”, she said, “creating centres of development. We can make the deserts bloom and create new cities. The New Silk Road can become a peace order for the twenty-first century. If successful, it will create a new age of civilisation, and if it fails, we will enter a new dark age.”
    Reversing 40 years of disaster
    Following Zepp-laRouche’s presentation, EIR’s Washington Bureau Chief William Jones recalled how, at the UN General Assembly in 1976, Western leaders had rejected then-Foreign Minister of Guyana Fred Wills’ call for a New World Economic Order and a debt moratorium for developing nations, and instead entered a four-decade inflationary expansion of the financial system. “President Xi’s project … offers now the possibility of reversing that”, Jones said. “The world stands in amazement over China’s development in the last few decades, and now China is offering a similar development for the rest of the world.”
    Appreciation by experts
    These two presentations were followed by comments from eight leading Chinese scholars representing the fields of strategy, international development, economics and finance. All had read the report, and praised it as encapsulating exactly the approach needed to supersede geopolitics and engender fruitful co-operation among all nations. Several of them also noted the Schiller Institute’s role as a key initiator of the New Silk Road project, and Lyndon LaRouche’s unique contribution to the science of economy. All symposium participants received a copy of the report, and the Chongyang Institute will distribute 1,000 more to a wide cross-section of Chinese political and intellectual circles.
    The high-level participation in the event by Chinese scholars, and the sponsorship by the prestigious Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, underscored the fact that the EIR report has now become an authoritative source for Chinese scholars in pursuing the “One Belt, One Road” project. The economic concepts championed by Lyndon LaRouche over 50-plus years have now become a staple for the intellectual layers in the most populous country in the world.

    ASIO whistleblower Mamdouh Habib detained at Istanbul airport: where’s the Australian government?
    In the early hours of this morning Australian time, former Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee and vindicated ASIO whistleblower Mamdouh Habib was suddenly detained at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport and blocked from entering Turkey.
    Mamdouh Habib’s wife Maha was also detained.
    The Habibs report that Turkish officials cited the Australian government in connection with refusing them entry into Turkey, even though they have entered Turkey numerous times in recent years.
    They report that they received poor Australian consular assistance which amounted to “do as you are told”. However, when they then tried to follow that Australian consular advice and return to Lebanon, from where they had flown in, the Turkish officials refused to return their passports. They allege they were then roughly bundled into a car and driven to the location in which they were detained, without water or being allowed to use the toilet.
    Some hours later the Habibs were placed on a plane and flown back to Beirut, where they have just landed at 3.30am local time.
    Mamdouh and Maha Habib are currently in the region because they have been in Egypt to pursue a legal case which is an extreme embarrassment to the Australian government and ASIO.
    In media releases throughout this year, the CEC has reported extensively on Mamdouh Habib’s case and his allegations: that ASIO has waged a long-running campaign of harassment against him, which included his 2001 rendering to Egypt for torture; and that ASIO was involved in the December 2014 Sydney siege.
    The treatment of the Habibs in Istanbul today raises two questions:
    1. Was the Australian government involved?
    2. What is the Australian government doing at this time to assist the Habibs, who are Australian citizens?

    Why is Australia supporting Obama’s mad provocation of war with China?
    Barack Obama’s order for US Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen to sail within 12 nautical miles of Subi Reef in the Spratly archipelago, now claimed by China, is a provocation for thermonuclear war and must be condemned in the strongest terms. In response to the transgression of USS Lassen on 27 October, China deployed its missile destroyer Lanzhou and patrol boat Taizhou to counter further “incursions”.
    Despite the fact that China is Australia’s biggest trading partner, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Defence Minister Marise Payne have slavishly backed the US in this confrontation, and drawn our nation closer to war. The Australian reported on 29 October that “the Royal Australian Navy has for months been preparing a contingency plan to send a warship or a military aircraft close to China’s artificial islands”, as part of a “range of options to support the US”.
    Senior Colonel Li Jie, of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), said Australia’s involvement would “only bring trouble”, and “it is not in Australia’s interest to become involved”.
    American expert on East Asia Mike Billington from Executive Intelligence Review magazine (EIR) in an interview with Press TV made clear that Obama is on a mad drive for war: “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy by Obama who in fact has no intention other than to militarily confront both Russia and China. This is a very very dangerous situation.”
    Billington noted the hypocrisy of US Defence Secretary Ash Carter’s accusation that China is militarising the South China Sea: “this is happening at the same time that the US is attempting to override the Philippine Constitution and deploy massive military forces into eight different bases in the Philippines.”
    Using the refugee “boat people” crisis as an excuse, the Obama regime has coerced both Malaysia and Thailand to allow US military aircraft to use their bases for surveillance of their territorial waters—as if the US military were needed to spot refugee boats.
    The US and Australian governments’ excuse, that we are defending “unimpeded trade and freedom of navigation”, is farcical. China has no intention to cut off trade or enact a blockade on shipping through the South China Sea; to do so would be economic suicide. The majority of trade through that route is with China itself. China’s posture in the South China Sea is defensive, not offensive, and is prompted by Obama’s Asia Pivot to “contain” China as the CEC documented in our media release of 3 June 2015. China’s overriding concerns are the newly militarised Japan; the basing of 2500 US Marines in Darwin; and the possibility of a pre-emptive US move to choke off the Straits of Malacca, as outlined in America’s prevailing Air-Sea Battle doctrine, which would cut China off from its all-important energy imports.
    China’s recent military strategy paper of 26 May 2015 indicates they are fully prepared for conflict with the United States: “The PLASAF [PLA Second Artillery Force] will strengthen its capabilities for strategic deterrence and nuclear counterattack, and medium- and long-range precision strikes. … The nuclear force is a strategic cornerstone for safeguarding national sovereignty and security. … China will optimise its nuclear force structure, improve strategic early warning, command and control, missile penetration, rapid reaction, and survivability and protection, and deter other countries from using or threatening to use nuclear weapons against China.”
    The military strategy paper also makes clear China’s policy of no first use of nuclear weapons, a policy that the US regime has refused to accept.
    This is the danger the late former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser warned of in his book Dangerous Allies. Like the CEC, Fraser (who was also Defence Minister) long warned that the US targeting of China (and Russia) with its ballistic missile defence (BMD) system, and the policy of “containing” China, including through Barack Obama’s Asia Pivot, which involves Australia, is leading towards nuclear war, in which Australia will be a target.
    The former PM starkly warned that Australia’s hosting of the US Marine Air-Ground Task Force in Darwin targeted at China; the 2013 deployment of guided missile frigate HMAS Sydney with the 7th US Fleet as part of the USS George Washington’s Carrier Strike Group; and our hosting of Pine Gap as a targeting installation for America’s nuclear missile systems and murderous drones program, automatically involves us in US wars, in the same way historically that Australia was automatically involved in British wars.
    The territorial conflicts in Asia are largely a product of Western geopolitics. At the end of World War I, the German-held Chinese territory of Shandong peninsula was transferred to Japan in Article 156 of the British-run 1919 Treaty of Versailles. Transferring territory of the Shandong Province—the home town of the great Chinese philosopher Confucius—to Japan, is typical of the British Empire’s strategy of divide and conquer. The Anglo-American-orchestrated 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty, co-authored by John Foster Dulles, created the causes for almost every subsequent territorial dispute in Asia, including that in the South China Sea. It excluded China despite it suffering the most casualties of all nations in the Pacific War against Japan in World War II.
    There is a genuine alternative to war: cooperative economic development. Contrast Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership, which conspicuously excludes China, to China’s One Belt-One Road program of economic development and win-win solutions centred on the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road. China is inviting all nations, including the US, to participate in this vision, including through its Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
    Australia must end its historical practice of automatically supporting imperial power-plays, first of Great Britain, and now those of a United States acting in that British tradition. It is in our independent national interest to assert our own sovereignty and collaborate with China on economic development to secure peace.

    Mobilise with New Citizen against Crown’s green dictatorship
    The Citizens Electoral Council this week printed hundreds of thousands of copies of the Nov./Dec. 2015 New Citizen newspaper, headlined “Pressed by financial disaster and BRICS initiatives, British Crown Seeks War, Dictatorship”.
    The CEC is on an urgent mobilisation to mass-distribute this newspaper all across Australia, in order to defeat the global green dictatorship that the Nazi-loving, people-hating Royal family is working to achieve at the Paris COP21 climate change conference at the end of this month.
    Click here to order bulk copies of the 4-page New Citizen and participate in the mobilisation.
    The New Citizen situates the push for a global climate change treaty in Paris in the context of the looming financial crisis and the danger of world war. The lead article opens, “The intensifying global financial crisis is driving the Anglo-American elite to move for a showdown with China and Russia, and a global dictatorship under the fraudulent pretext of ‘climate change’.”
    The New Citizen reports:
    • that the massive post-2008 expansion of global debt to $199 trillion, and the global derivatives bubble to more than $2 quadrillion, has the world on the brink of the next great financial crash;
    • that the BRICS nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa—have made striking progress towards a more just global order based on “win-win” co-operative economic development between sovereign nations, which the Anglo-Americans and their minions like the government of Australia are terrified will replace the present, bankrupt global system controlled from the City of London and Wall Street;
    • that Russia’s game-changing diplomatic and military moves to defuse the Syrian civil war and refugee crisis have outflanked the British-Obama agenda of regime change and permanent war.
    This strategic picture is the backdrop against which the British Royal family is personally leading the charge for a legally-binding global treaty which will strip nations of their sovereign rights to economic development for the benefit of their citizens, under the pretext of an evil hoax: that carbon dioxide emissions, from the very industrial processes that feed, clothe and house people, are warming the planet. Prince “I want to be reincarnated as a deadly virus” Philip’s longtime assistant Martin Palmer is a key organiser of Paris COP21; radical depopulator Hans Schellnhuber, whom the Queen awarded a CBE for being her personal climate change envoy, has recruited the Pope under false pretences to support the Paris agenda; and Australia’s future king, Prince Charles, will address the opening of the Paris conference, as he did when they last attempted a global treaty at the Copenhagen COP15 in 2009. The treaty they intend will have zero impact on the climate, but will underpin a global carbon trading scheme, which will shore up the financial power of the City of London-Wall Street system, enabling predator banks such as Malcolm Turnbull’s Goldman Sachs to loot the global economy by manipulating the trade in carbon credits.
    The CEC’s 2007-09 mobilisation against this agenda informed and shifted public opinion in Australia, which cost both Malcolm Turnbull and Kevin Rudd their jobs, and was instrumental in the failure of the Copenhagen conference. We can and must defeat it again!
    This 4-page New Citizen is the ammunition you need to fight. Click here, or call the CEC on 1800 636 432 to order bulk copies to distribute in your area.

    Prince Charles and Saudi-backed terrorism: Demand answers! (part 1)

    In response to the recent terror attacks by ISIS in Paris, Lebanon, and the Sinai Peninsula, among other places, Citizens Electoral Council of Australia National Secretary Craig Isherwood today stated from his party’s headquarters in Melbourne:

    “ISIS has now boasted that they will hit Washington, D.C., while the head of MI5 has been proclaiming for months that a mass slaughter on the streets of the UK is inevitable. Dire warnings of terrorist attacks have also been issued here in Australia.
    “We must therefore take the war against ISIS into entirely new dimensions. Rather than cowering in terror, waiting for new eruptions of mass slaughter in which you or your loved ones may be the next to die, you as an individual citizen in Australia or in the UK have a personal responsibility to do something to bring this mayhem to a halt.
    “The first new dimension of an actual war on terror would be to root out the financial and logistical support provided to ISIS by megabanks in London and on Wall Street, without whose assistance ISIS would begin to wither away. At their 15-16 November summit in Turkey, Russian President Vladimir Putin provided his fellow G20 heads of state with concrete evidence of the sources of terrorist financing, he said, ‘from 40 countries … including some G20 countries’. And UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn demanded in Parliament on 18 November that PM David Cameron slap on ‘sanctions against those banks and companies and, if necessary, countries which turn a blind eye to those who do dealings with ISIL, who assist them in their work.’ Corbyn has repeatedly named Saudi Arabia as a centrepiece of this apparatus.
    “Besides Saudi Arabia”, Isherwood continued, “an excellent place to start is the City of London’s HSBC, the largest British bank, which is 5 per cent owned by the British government through the Royal Bank of Scotland. HSBC has laundered probably hundreds of billions of dollars of drug money and has maintained intimate financial links to Saudi banks which finance Al-Qaeda, as well as to leading personnel of MI5 and MI6, agencies deeply implicated in building this terror machine in the first place.1
    “But a second new dimension of counteraction against the terrorists is more important still. And that is to break up the protection which political establishments in the West—notably in the UK and the USA—have granted to the orchestrators and financiers of ISIS: Saudi Arabia and Qatar, with help from their friends in Turkey. In this regard, as the CEC and our friends at the US weekly Executive Intelligence Review have documented, the key figure is Prince Charles, because over the past three decades no other member of the state leadership of any country has been more intimately associated with the foremost Saudi orchestrators of international terrorism than he.
    “Therefore, you as a citizen of Australia or the UK should review the public-domain evidence I provide below, which is drawn from the dossiers compiled by the CEC and EIR. Then demand that your MP stand up in Parliament and raise the ‘unthinkable’ questions they have hitherto been too cowardly to mention.2 These are but a few essentials of what is known about the role of Charles and the Crown in creating and orchestrating terrorism. Much more evidence, and investigative leads, may be found in the links provided.”
    Al-Yamamah and Al-Qaeda/ISIS
    Crucial to the financing of modern international terrorism is the infamous Al-Yamamah arms deal struck between Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan in 1985, which is still running and which by 2013 had generated an estimated US$160 billion3. This gigantic slush fund was used to finance the rise of first Al-Qaeda and then ISIS. The later phases of Al-Yamamah—the richest single contract in British history—were negotiated by Charles himself during 12 official visits to Saudi Arabia and innumerable private ones. Britain’s Serious Fraud Office investigated Al-Yamamah in 2003-06 for corruption and bribes on a gigantic scale, but then-PM Tony Blair suddenly shut down the probe, claiming that “Our relationship with Saudi Arabia is vitally important for our country in terms of counter-terrorism”.
    The real orchestrator of the cover-up, however, was not Blair, but Charles. A glimpse of that reality appeared in the 2005 book, Saudi Babylon, a chronicle of the Saudi Kingdom’s imprisonment and torture of Sandy Mitchell in 2000. The book provided a detailed account of an extraordinary April 2003 meeting at New Scotland Yard:
    Prince Charles’s relationships with prominent House of Saud members have created serious problems and obstacles to UK agencies investigating claims of Saudi financing of international terrorism, according to Special Branch sources [emphasis added]. The delicacy and sensitivity of Prince Charles’s friendships was raised during a meeting at New Scotland Yard in April 2003. Families of the victims of 9/11 had filed a lawsuit accusing some members of the House of Saud, notably defence minister Prince Sultan and the new UK Ambassador, Prince Turki, of supporting Al-Qaeda in the past. Their lawyers were in Europe investigating allegations that senior Saudi royals had backed Islamic charities, run by the government, which funded the 9/11 hijackers.
    “The meeting at New Scotland Yard was attended by detective chief inspector Stephen Ratcliffe, the Special Branch officer in charge of tracking terrorism financing; Peter Clarke, national director of countering terrorist funding; Robert Randall, a police liaison officer; and lawyers for the families of the 9/11 victims. Alan Gerson, a lawyer for 9/11 relatives, outlined their case and said that the Saudi royal family were put on notice in 1999 by US National Security Council (NSC) officials in Riyadh that funds for Al-Qaeda came from Saudi. ‘There were similar warnings to the Saudis in London as well,’ said Ratcliffe, ‘although some of our regulatory agencies were not always up to scratch in tracing the money.’
    “‘Well, have the UK authorities uncovered anything to show that charities run by some members of the Saudi royal family were channelling money to the terrorists?’ asked Gerson.
    “Ratcliffe looked hesitant and a little sheepish. ‘Our ability to investigate the Saudis is very limited,’ he said. He then paused, looked across at a photograph of Prince Charles on the wall, raised his eyebrows and smiled knowingly without saying a word. ‘He did not say anything but the message was crystal clear when he looked at the picture,’ said a police officer who was present. ‘It was Prince Charles’s special relationship with the Saudis which was a problem. He gave no other reason why they were restricted.’”4

    One need not rely solely on Hollingsworth’s account of Charles’s intimacy with Saudi kingpins of international terrorism. The two Saudi influentials named in that New Scotland Yard meeting, Al-Yamamah’s Prince Bandar and Prince Turki, for instance, were two of only eight foreign royals whom Charles invited to his 2005 wedding with Camilla Parker-Bowles, while Bandar biographer William Simpson reported that Bandar’s relationship with Charles was long-standing and “very close”. As for Bandar’s brother-in-law Prince Turki, he headed Saudi General Intelligence from 1979 to 2001 during which time he created Al-Qaeda. He suddenly resigned from that post only 10 days before 9/11, and though featured in the 9/11 families’ lawsuit and subsequently named by a convicted 9/11 conspirator as one of its main orchestrators, Turki went on to become Saudi Ambassador to the UK (2003-05) and to the USA (2005-06).

    Prince Charles and Saudi-backed terrorism: Demand answers! (part 2)

    Charles’s Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies: Terror Central

    One of Charles’s main “private charities” is his Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS), in which he has long been the Patron. The British press habitually refers to Charles’s “fascination with Islam”, to explain his tightness with the OCIS and related activities. Already some three decades ago, Charles convinced his good friend, the now-deceased Saudi King Fahd, to finance the construction of a network of mosques in the UK, which was soon to house the first phases of terrorist infrastructure where the Wahhabist radicals were trained, such as the infamous Finsbury Park Mosque in north London. Among other atrocities, Finsbury personnel were involved in the 7 July 2005 subway bombings (“7/7”) in London which killed 52 and wounded 700 more, and in the January 2015 Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. In a US courtroom in 2014, Finsbury leader Abu Hamza al-Masri stated in his defence that he had been working for MI5 all along.5 Consider the present or past board members and the major financiers of Charles’s OCIS, virtually all of whom have been implicated in financing, orchestrating or advocating terrorism.6
    Prince Bandar bin Sultan contributed an estimated US$13-24.4 million to the OCIS in the early 1990s, according to various accounts, and arranged for then-Saudi King Fahd to kick in another $32.4 million in 1997. While Saudi ambassador to the United States, Bandar provided financing and logistical support to the 9/11 terrorists.7
    Prince Turki bin Faisal, a member of the OCIS Board of Trustees and chairman of its Strategy Advisory Committee, has been named as financier and coordinator of 9/11.
    Prince Mohamed bin Faisal, a brother of Prince Turki and known as a “pioneer of Islamic banking”, was named by the 9/11 families in a lawsuit.
    Abdullah Omar Naseef co-founded the OCIS and chairs its Board of Trustees. In the 1980s, Naseef co-created Maktab al-Khidamat, the backbone organisation of the Arab-Afghan mujahedin in Afghanistan, which in 1989 changed its name to Al-Qaeda. He, too, has been named a financier of terrorism in a 9/11 families’ lawsuit. After Queen Elizabeth II herself granted the OCIS a Royal charter in May 2011, Naseef exulted, “This is very good news. This shows that the British government, the Queen, and the whole state are very much aware that the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies is doing very well to make relations between the Islamic world and the Western world closer and to bring Islam and its role into the international arena.”
    Yusuf al-Qaradawi was a board member of the OCIS from 1985 until 2006. Qatar-based spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, he has issued fatwas for the overthrow and assassination of Libya’s Qaddafi and Syria’s Assad, and in July 2012 threatened the assassination of Egyptian leader Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, now President of Egypt. In a 30 January 2009 broadcast on Al-Jazeera TV al-Qaradawi proclaimed that “Hitler Put the Jews in Their Place”: “Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them—even though they exaggerated this issue—he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them.”
    The Bin Laden family, besides the notoriety brought by its famous member Osama bin Laden, was among the Saudi, Qatari and Kuwaiti private donors of some $70 million to the OCIS, endowing its “Mohammed bin Laden chair”, named after Osama’s father. Osama had been recruited by Prince Turki to set up the Maktab al-Khidamat network, the future Al-Qaeda.

    International terrorism and the Anglo-American Empire
    The ultimate enemy in the “war on terror” is beyond the foot-soldiers of ISIS; it is those who created Al-Qaeda and ISIS. They are the powers typified by HSBC and the other megabanks of the City of London and their junior partners on Wall Street, the “informal financial empire”, in the words of British imperial strategists themselves, which has replaced the genocidal formal British Empire of the 19th century. This new form of empire still sits above nation-states, which it forced to bail out its megabanks in 2008. Now, faced with an impending, far greater global financial crash, this empire is unleashing mass terrorism, while simultaneously seeking ever more draconian legislation, including “shoot-to-kill” authorisation and sweeping powers of surveillance. The purpose? To establish police states, in order to control populations who are already rebelling against the vicious austerity of globalisation, a rebellion typified by the stunning election of Jeremy Corbyn to head the UK Labour Party.
    The history of the creation of Al-Qaeda and now ISIS for this purpose, over the last several decades, is chronicled in a 101-page dossier of articles from Executive Intelligence Review magazine, “9/11, ISIS, and the Anglo-American/Saudi Terror Nexus”.
    An actual war on terror must include the two essential measures outlined here:
    1. Beginning with Prince Charles, the Western sponsors of Al-Qaeda, ISIS et al. must be named, and then hauled before national governments to be interrogated; and
    2. The London and Wall Street megabanks which are supporting ISIS and forcing brutal austerity upon the populations of the world must be broken up by banking separation laws such as the US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Glass-Steagall legislation, passed by the US Congress in 1933, which protect normal lending from insatiable financial speculators. Such legislation now has wide and rapidly growing support in the US Congress, and missed passage in the UK in 2013 by only nine votes in the House of Lords and 49 votes in the House of Commons, during debate of the Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill 2013.
    Therefore, if you want to defeat terrorism, as well as reverse the policies of genocidal austerity, you must do your part: Call your MP and demand that he or she act to summon Prince Charles for questioning on suspicion of being a terrorist kingpin, and demand that they enact Glass-Steagall legislation. And forward this press release to all of your friends and associates and urge them to do likewise.

    G20 accepts ‘bail-in’ swindle to prop up TBTF banks
    Although the Paris terrorist attack overtook the planned agenda of the 14-15 November G20 Leaders’ Summit in Turkey, nevertheless that summit accepted the Financial Stability Board’s (FSB) demand for a “bail-in” regime to prop up the 30 global too-big-to-fail (TBTF) banks.
    The summit’s final communiqué noted there was agreement on measures to “enhance resilience” in the global financial system, stating, “In particular, as a key step towards ending too-big-to-fail, we have finalized the common international standard on total-loss-absorbing-capacity (TLAC) for global systemically important banks.” (TLAC refers to the categories of a bank’s liabilities that are earmarked to be “bailed in”, effectively confiscated, when the bank is in trouble; global systemically important banks, or G-SIBs, refers to the 30 multinational banking giants that are officially too big to fail.)
    The claim in the communiqué that bail-in is a “step towards ending” TBTF is a cynical fraud. The schemers at the FSB cooked up bail-in to preserve TBTF—by definition, the 30 G-SIBs bail-in is intended to prop up are too big to fail! After the public backlash against the 2008 taxpayer bail-outs of the banks that caused the crisis, the FSB had to make it look as if governments were no longer responsible for propping up those banks by putting the onus onto the banks’ customers and unsuspecting bondholders. Now it’s depositors, as occurred in Cyprus in 2013, and workers whose super funds might buy so-called “bail-inable bonds”, who will be forced to prop up TBTF banks.
    The truth is, the TBTF banks’ derivatives gambling debts are so huge—now a $2 quadrillion global bubble—that all of the money in deposits and bonds in the world won’t be enough to prevent their collapse when the derivatives bubble goes into full meltdown. Governments will be forced to step in with bailouts anyway.
    Given this, governments must take the only action that will avert a meltdown of the entire system—impose Glass-Steagall, the complete separation of commercial banking from investment banking, named after the US law that operated successfully from 1933 to 1999. Only a total separation will ensure that commercial banks with deposits are not exposed to risky speculation and derivatives gambling, and that investment banks that do gamble can fail without bringing down the entire financial system. Writing in the 11 November Financial Times, former Citibank chairman John Reed, whose bank lobbied for the repeal of Glass-Steagall in 1999 so it could merge its commercial and investment banking interests into a “universal” bank, admitted he was wrong, and declared that the two types of banking don’t go together. “As I have reflected about the years since 1999, I think the lessons of Glass-Steagall and its repeal suggest that the universal banking model is inherently unstable and unworkable,” Reed wrote. “No amount of restructuring, management change or regulation is ever likely to change that.”
    That the FSB is pushing ahead with bail-in, rather than recommending Glass-Steagall to all of the G20 members, demonstrates that its real agenda is ensuring the banks can continue their reckless gambling in derivatives, which caused the crisis in the first place, free from proper government regulation and oversight. The FSB is determined that the private banking cartel, not governments, will remain the supreme authority in the global financial system.
    As reported in the 11 November Australian Alert Service, FSB chairman Mark Carney, who doubles as the Governor of the Bank of England, made it clear ahead of the G20 summit that the member nations, including Australia, are now expected to legislate to comply with the new rules. Specific legislation for Australia is yet to be announced, but as early as April 2013 an FSB report noted that bail-in legislation is “in train for Australia”. There is speculation that one of Australia’s Big Four TBTF banks could soon be designated a G-SIB, in which case bail-in could soon apply to a large percentage of Australian depositors.
    The CEC has led the fight against bail-in since its first use, with devastating consequences, in Cyprus in March 2013. We will monitor and fight any moves to legislate bail-in in Australia, and continue to fight for a full Glass-Steagall separation of Australia’s banks, the only way to protect the Australian people from the fall-out of the looming global financial crisis. Join us in that fight.

    Royal climate swindler covers for terrorism & genocide
    Heir to the throne Prince Charles in the lead up to the Paris UN climate conference perpetrated a sinister hoax, by using the climate change fraud to cover for genocidal terrorism in Syria in which he is implicated. With a psychopath’s total lack of shame, Charles in an interview with Sky News aired on 23 November blamed the crisis in Syria on a drought caused by supposed climate change. In fact the deadly civil war is the latest product of the Anglo-American regime change agenda, using fanatical, murderous Wahhabi jihadists, funded and armed by the Saudi royals named in the suppressed 28 pages of the US Congress’s official 9/11 report as financiers of the 2001 terrorist attack on New York and Washington. Charles knows this is the truth, because not only is he the arms dealer to these Saudis, he is their close friend, having included two of those named in the 28 pages—Princes Bandar bin Sultan and Turki bin Faisal—among the eight foreign royals invited to his intimate and exclusive wedding with Camilla.
    (Read the CEC’s 25 November release, “Prince Charles and Saudi-backed terrorism: Demand answers!”, for details of the involvement of Australia’s future king with the global terrorism apparatus funded out of Saudi Arabia.)
    This hoax by Charles, to cover intentional genocide, is in keeping with the entire Paris conference, which Charles and his family have taken the lead in organising and to which Charles delivered the keynote opening address. Charles is the current standard-bearer of the Royal family’s longstanding agenda for global green fascism, pioneered by his genocidalist father Prince Philip from the early 1960s to achieve his Malthusian wet-dream of reducing the world’s human population to less than one billion people. In her opening address to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Malta last Friday to gee up the Commonwealth countries to take the lead on climate change in Paris, the Queen alluded to the baton passing to Charles, saying she could not “wish to have been better supported and represented in the Commonwealth than by The Prince of Wales who continues to give so much to it with great distinction.” They intended for Paris to achieve a legally-binding global treaty—effectively a global dictatorship—on forced CO2 reductions that would condemn billions to energy poverty—the Malthus formula for mass death.
    However, the Royals are meeting resistance from the world’s poorest countries which are in their gunsights to be depopulated. India’s Power Minister Piyush Goyal, who is in Paris along with Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar, won’t be bullied by Prince Charles or the Queen. As reported in The Huffington Post of 29 November, Goyal said “we are not at all apologetic about using coal. America and the Western world has developed on the back of cheap energy from coal for the last 150 years. And on the back of this low-cost energy, they made their highways, their railroads, factories, manufacturing, suddenly all their people have jobs, everybody there has a home, their per capita GDP income is over $70,000 and their growth is at zero.” India could well triple its emissions by 2030 in lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. Its coal-fired electricity generation more than doubled from around 390 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2000 to 800 TWh in 2012.
    China likewise will continue to expand carbon dioxide emissions, with 126 coal-fired power stations under construction and a further 639 planned. By contrast, Australia has built just two coal-fired power stations in the last decade—the 750 megawatt (MW) Kogan Creek Power Station (Queensland) commissioned in 2007 and the 416 MW Bluewaters Power Station (Western Australia) commissioned in 2009.
    Thousands of scientists mostly blacked out of the Western establishment media have long exposed the climate hoax and said that more carbon dioxide should be welcomed as plant food. Well known physicist and Nobel laureate Ivar Giaever blasted the global warming hoax at the Nobel Laureates meeting on 1 July 2015. Scientists from the International Climate Science Coalition are holding their own conference in Paris this week to challenge the climate hoax. Several notable scientists, including from Australia, will present material over three days commencing 1 December.
    As things stand, Paris won’t achieve a binding treaty, which is a defeat for the Royals, but the British Crown will push ahead with its genocidal agenda. The CEC is leading the fight in Australia to expose and defeat the Crown’s role in directing both green fascism and the Anglo-Saudi terrorism apparatus as vehicles for genocide. If you really want to defeat terrorism and genocide, join the CEC.

    Charles has been linked to the Bilderberg Group. I'd imagine they'd have an involvement in this.

    Because they make for some interesting reading. Don't you get sick of consuming the same old, same old that we are given by the media? I'm not asking anyone to agree or disagree with their reports, simply read and comprehend with an open mind, then come to your own conclusions. Yours is pretty plain to see. Thank you for finally sharing.

    Just out of curiosity, why, in your opinion, would a "crackpot racist right wing" group want Australia to join BRICS so desperately? Joining BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) doesn't seem like an incredibly smart thing to do for a racially motivated group, does it?

    Perhaps you are still referring to the CEC in the same old fashion as most Australians do, based on the League of Rights foundation in the early 80's. That started to unravel towards the end of that decade and by 1992 they were completely separated from the League of Rights and were under the control of the LaRouche movement. The League of Rights now warn their members to steer clear of the CEC. I'm sure you are aware of all this, you are always fully aware before you comment, but for those who may be wondering...

    History and Philosophy of the Citizens Electoral Council
    CEC Australia is a national political party, established in 1988 in Queensland.

    In the early 1990s, the CEC became closely associated with the LaRouche organisation in the U.S.A. Our collaboration with Mr. LaRouche and his cothinkers worldwide, is based on achieving peace through economic development, both for Australia, and for all regions of the world.

    In 1990, the CEC developed an economic programme for the reconstruction of our nation entitled Sovereign Australia, and in 1994 published Sovereign Australia II—A Legislative Programme to Save our Nation, which latter contained drafts of the necessary legislation for economic reconstruction, including debt moratoria for farmers and the re-establishment of a national bank, among other key elements; these programmes and legislation are far more urgently needed now, than when they were written.

    By far the most pressing issue of our times, both for Australia and for the world, is the accelerating onset of a new Great Depression, one which was caused by the insane policies of globalisation, privatisation, deregulation, etc., policies which, if not soon reversed, will plunge the world not merely into a depression, but into a New Dark Age beyond the imagination of most people alive today. For over three decades, only one economist in the world has both predicted this new Depression, and has proposed policies on how to get out of it—Lyndon LaRouche. The proposals of Mr. LaRouche, a several-time U.S. Presidential candidate (including in 2004), have earned him the bitter, unrelenting enmity of the City of London and Wall Street, which the old Australian Labor Party denounced as "The Money Power". Together with the news media and government agencies under their influence on several continents, London and Wall Street have mounted what Ramsey Clarke, the former U.S. Attorney General, has called "a broader range of deliberate cunning and systematic misconduct, over a longer period of time, utilizing the power of the federal government, than any other prosecution by the U.S. government, in my time, or to my knowledge". London and Wall Street are terrified that Mr. LaRouche's "New Bretton Woods" proposal to return to a system of sovereign, protectionist nation-states (as in the early postwar period) will bankrupt the power of the world financial oligarchy, paving the way for governments to pursue policies of the "general welfare" or "common good", as opposed to enriching a tiny minority of individuals, at the expense of everyone else.

    As does Mr. LaRouche, the CEC represents the Judeo-Christian-Islamic view that all human beings are created in the living image of God the Creator, and are therefore endowed with creative reason, unlike any other species. This "divine spark" of reason common to all mankind, means that there is only one race—the human race—contrary to the racist premises of multiculturalism. Since all men and women are created equal, they are thus sovereign individuals under natural law, and the sacred duty of governments is to foster the common good—the economic and social conditions under which each and every individual may flourish, and therefore contribute to the good of his or her nation, and to mankind as a whole.

    A major contributing factor to the present economic collapse, is the anti-human, bestial policies represented by the rock-drug-sex counterculture which took off in the 1960s. The "me first", "me only" policies championed by the counterculture, are precisely those also championed by the economic policies of globalisation, privatisation, etc.; indeed, the former has helped prepare the way for the latter. The CEC is committed, as is Mr. LaRouche, to urgently re-establishing a new Golden Renaissance, based upon the Classical tradition in art and philosophy, where the creative powers of each individual are fostered, to the benefit of both the individual, and of the entire society.

    So....crackpots? Probably. Racist? No. Dirty laundry? Most likely if you dig for it, but which political party doesn't, right?

    Like I say, it's interesting to get different views of the world, whether we agree or not is neither here nor there. Firing up because it's different from our own view point, well...that's the true definition of bigotry right there. You're not a bigot are you? No. I didn't think so.

    Beliefs and ideas don't spring from a vacuum. When considering anyone's opinion, it is wise to ask who they are and where they stand. You remember One Nation – Pauline Hanson?

    This from Hansard, Australian parliament:

    One of the most important concerns about the One Nation Party is that it has become a party of extremists. Its founders and leaders reflect its origins. The various member organisations of the One Nation Party include the League of Rights, under the leadership of Eric Butler; the Citizens Electoral Council, led by Craig Isherwood; Australians Against Further Immigration, led by Denis McCormack; the Australia First Party, Graeme Campbell’s party, which has rather extreme views on various issues; a number of extreme gun parties, such as the Australian Reform Party, led by Ted Drane; and last, but not least, National Action, whose leader is Michael Brander, and whose previous leaders are serving long terms in Her Majesty’s prisons.

    And if that's not enough to raise concerns, a quick peek at the CEC homepage reveals their policies are in the form of a 3 point program, which must be achieved in the following correct order:
    1. tinker with the banking system
    2. tinker with the banking system
    3. develop a moon/Mars project
