Is The Brexit Fiasco A Deep State Stitch Up?

by Barney Lane, posted on Quora

I think of “deep state” as being about the behind the scenes machinery of government; the inner workings of the civil service and secret negotiations of politicians.

In this piece, I argue that yes, the deep state has played its part, but the main issue is the weakness and susceptibility of our Prime Minister, to manipulation. In short, May has been soft and pliable with the EU, who know her as “Mrs No until she says Yes”, while being infuriatingly stubborn with her own party and country.

To start with, let’s consider what we know. For me, these are the relevant facts:

Leave won the 2016 referendum, Cameron resigned, the Tories appointed Theresa May as leader and Theresa May said she would deliver Brexit

Theresa May lost her majority in the 2017 General Election, meaning she would have to depend on the votes of all her own MPs plus those of the DUP to get legislation through

Theresa May sacked her advisers Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, effectively replacing them with Olly Robbins, a civil servant. Shortly afterwards, she dropped DExEU from having a lead role in the exit negotiations, putting Olly Robbins in charge

Theresa May’s first notable move in the negotiations proper, was to accept without a fight, the EU’s sequencing demands. This was a major surprise. Notes of the meeting showed the EU delegation acting both surprised and delighted. Minutes show EU officials asking for reconfirmation that this was really the UK’s position

In late 2017, Theresa May allowed talk of remaining in the customs union to resurface, doing nothing to clarify the government’s policy, which was to leave the customs union

In December 2017, Theresa May signed a political agreement giving away £39 billion and signed us up to a “backstop” that would commit the UK to remaining under EU control until it had found a way of managing the customs border in Ireland, in a way that satisfied the EU

When the political declaration was converted into legal text, Theresa May said “no British PM could sign this”. This was the only thing of note, that Theresa May said about Brexit in the first half of 2018. She later did sign it

In mid-2018, Theresa May faced a backbench rebellion attempting to force legislation to keep us in the customs union. Theresa May invited the ringleader Dominic Grieve to Downing Street to persuade him to drop his rebellion. It is understood that she made him privy to a plan that was at this stage, not widely known. Dominic Grieve promptly dropped his rebellion

In July 2018, Theresa May held the Chequers summit where she unveiled the Brexit whitepaper. She told her government, the meeting would not end until everyone had agreed to it and if anyone resigned, ministerial transport would not be available for the trip home

The whitepaper horrified some ministers, who believed it amounted to a customs union in all but name. Boris Johnson resigned. David Davis resigned

In his resignation speech, Davis criticised May for sidelining his department, which had been set up to prepare the UK for its departure from the EU, while instead favouring her own civil service adviser Olly Robbins

In replying, Theresa May said Davis’s department had not come up with a workable plan

In an article in the Telegraph, Davis replied that this was deeply disingenuous. His department had a detailed and carefully worked out plan. It was she, the PM who had chosen to ignore it while developing her own alternative plan without telling anyone

Johnson wrote in the Telegraph, that Theresa May had allowed the Ireland border to become prominent in the negotiations because she had unquestioningly accepted the EU’s framing of the issue and had not even tried to find a solution

Come December 2018, the EU published their Withdrawal Agreement (WA). It was very similar to the Chequers whitepaper, except that it lacked the May/Robbins scheme for the UK collecting tariffs on behalf of the EU. The WA’s political declaration sought a future relationship that would build upon “the single customs territory”

Minutes of the meeting where Theresa May signed the WA showed that the EU had said “The customs union will be the basis for the future relationship. The EU will retain all control”. Theresa May had signed a document that she knew the EU interpreted as implying a permanent customs union, and in which the EU would retain full control

The WA was voted down three times by Parliament. Most notably, it was voted down by Brexit-supporting MPs who believed it was “not Brexit” and by the DUP who believed it had sold out their territory

The Brady amendment gave Theresa May a mandate to renegotiate the Ireland backstop, which keeps the UK in a customs union with the EU until the EU approves the UK’s plans for managing the border

May largely ignored this mandate, saying she would not attempt a renegotiation but instead, half-heartedly said she would “seek changes”

On the basis of the above, it is reasonable to conclude that the main reason Brexit (in this incarnation) has failed, is that Theresa May changed course. While her general stance was initially to the liking of Brexit supporting MPs, her final deal, was not.

Having lost her majority in parliament, she inevitably had to work harder to reconcile the interests of her MPs, who had different opinions. However, it is clear from the above that at each node of the decision tree, she leaned towards her remainer MPs. She didn’t tell anyone this was what she was doing or why, she just did it.

Her eventual WA was a death by a thousand cuts, non-Brexit Brexit. But what happened to make her change course? That’s the key question.

By any standard, her behaviour in office has been extraordinary. Consider where the Tories were at the start. Dominic Lawson wrote about this in the Sunday Times, this morning in Brexit on a plate — and the Tories blew it. [1]

Only two years ago the Tories were united under the firm but fair leadership of the headmistressy Theresa May, Farage had been rendered irrelevant and Labour was still riven by the shock of a referendum outcome that pitted it against the very people (the industrial working class) it was formed to represent.

Thus, in February 2017, this column was headlined “Cheer Up, Mr Cameron, you won your party the greatest prize imaginable”. The former PM was being ridiculed almost daily, and yet, I argued, while the referendum result had trashed his reputation as a political winner, he was actually the accidental author of a miraculous transformation in his party’s fortunes: “Unintentionally, Cameron has achieved for the Conservatives something a string of earlier leaders signally failed to do. He has made them the party that is united over the vexed question of the UK’s relationship with the European Union and — a completely unexpected bonus — turned Labour into a house divided on this issue.”

That aged well, didn’t it? In fact the second half of that analysis still holds true and explains Labour’s continuing inability to come up with a Brexit policy that could be communicated coherently (or at all) on an election leaflet. But that column was written at the moment of the party’s greatest discomfiture, the week after parliament passed the bill to invoke article 50 — giving us just two years (ha!) to negotiate our departure from the EU. Corbyn’s three-line whip ordering his MPs to back the government’s policy led to resignations from the shadow cabinet and thousands of party members quitting in protest.

The reason Theresa May’s behaviour has been so extraordinary is that she did not need to lean towards Remain in her implementation of Brexit. The Tories were united around a clean Brexit. That was the referendum result. That was what the manifesto said. It could not have been clearer. Even those who did not agree with the result of the referendum, accepted both it and the government’s interpretation of it.

When murmurings about a “softening” of Brexit started to emerge, May could have acted to silence them, reminding her MPs of their manifesto commitments, but she did not. From a parliamentary arithmetic point of view, it was far easier for her to lean towards her Brexiteer contingent than her Remain contingent. Leaning towards her Brexiteers would not have angered her Remainers as much as leaning towards her Remainers have angered her Brexiteers. All she needed to do was to maintain existing party policy, to which all her MPs had explicitly agreed by standing for election upon its manifesto.

What happened? Theresa May is well known as someone who can be “captured” by her advisers. Who were her advisers? Before the 2017 election, her advisers were Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill — both clean Brexit advocates. After the election, her advisers were Olly Robbins and — as far as one can tell — the EU. In the past 2 years, May has spent many hours in the offices of her fellow European leaders.

Now, there’s an element of deep state at work here. An anonymous civil servant wrote an article in the Telegraph titled “Believe me, the Civil Service is trying to sink Brexit. I have seen it from the inside”[2] He or she writes:

A quick scroll though the social media accounts of my colleagues and you will find images of them proudly waving ‘Remain’ placards, campaigning for a ‘People’s Vote’, boasting ‘Jez we can’ and of course the usual apocalyptic messages of doom since the Brexit vote. The double-standards are astonishing. If I so much as followed the activities of Nigel Farage, I have no doubt that I would be called in for questioning. I re-call one conversation with a senior member of staff at the Foreign Office who told me she was ashamed when Boris Johnson was appointed Foreign Secretary as he is so “typically British”.

This department is particularly notorious for its anti-Brexit bias. My experience tells me that there is a genuine hatred of those who voted for Brexit. I recall my first day in the Civil Service as a graduate, being invited to a meeting of senior members of staff who spent the good part of two hours in agreement that the public made a “stupid” decision in the EU referendum.

Unfortunately, this bias doesn’t end with snide insults and childish quips. It goes to the root of their day-to-day work and has truly negative impacts on the way we conduct the important tasks ahead of us. I have in fact come across senior staff working on our post-Brexit relationships who openly talk down the prospect of a UK-US FTA and encourage anti-Trump hysteria. Many of them even joined the protests against the President’s visit last year. During his visit it was common to hear jokes about Trump’s assassination from the very people meant to be working with our closest ally. The only thing worse than being pro-Brexit in the Civil Service is being pro-Trump.

But it doesn’t stop there. There is a strong presence of Anglophobia, combined with cultural Marxism that runs through the civil service. It has meant that many Civil Servants, including myself, have been actively discouraged from co-operating with Think Tanks which are seen as being “too right wing” despite sharing our goal of promoting free trade. This attitude also prevails in our work with our closest allies, particularly in the Commonwealth, where we are afraid to be seen as overly keen to work with countries that are run by “rich white men”.

Contrary to popular belief, Civil Servants often shape the views of Ministers. This makes the prevalent leftist culture within the Civil Service all the more concerning. These ardent remainer and left wing civil servants are the ones who provide the briefings, select the invites and choose the priorities for Ministers. How did we get to this point? The Civil Service is one of the biggest graduate employers, whilst universities have allowed a leftist culture of political correctness to flourish in recent decades.

Brexit is the greatest opportunity this country has faced in years, yet our Government machine is currently working from within to frustrate it. This must not go on. In the next phase of the Brexit negotiations it is vital our civil service ceases to allow the massive remain voting bias that has so far helped scupper our post-Brexit future.

Add to that the misuse of Treasury resources for giving misleading information about the economic consequences of Brexit — resources that were refused to other departments requesting them for no-deal preparations — and it’s clear there’s an element of deep state at work. However, it is the weakness and stubbornness of our Prime Minister, that is the most important part of the explanation.

It’s like a disease. If you’re unhealthy and have a weakened immune system, you are more susceptible to diseases. For most healthy people, flu can be an unpleasant few days in bed. For weakened people, it can be a killer.

That the civil service has worked to frustrate Brexit is both credible and predictable. However, it is the Prime Minister’s susceptibility to it, that has led to the failure of her attempt to deliver Brexit.

A senior civil servant has lifted the lid on a Remainer conspiracy behind Project Fear , revealing that the country is actually well-prepared for a “No Deal” Brexit and scare stories about Britain “crashing out” into “chaos and doom” are “absolutely untrue”.

The anonymous official, who has been involved in Britain’s preparations for a Brexit on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms — the so-called “No Deal” scenario — revealed in a Telegraph article that there are “hundreds” of plans in place to ensure that outlandish threats of food, water, and medicine shortages will not be realised, and that “it is purely a political decision not to make this clear to the public and nervous backbench MPs”.

Dutch Dismiss Claims MH17 Downed By buk Missile – Laugh, I Nearly Shat

I hope humble pie tastes like well rotted snake dung, I really do. Why you might well ask.

Because I want those unimaginative, authority worshipping idiots who argued with us ‘conspiracy theorists’ (more accurately know as truth seekers) to throw up when they eat it. When we said that while the USA sought to justify an armed intervention in Ukraine by claiming pro – Russian separatists had shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 last year, in fact the evidence pointed towards the neo fascist puppet government in Ukraine being responsible, some people called us rude names, accused us of being lovers of Vlad (the imapler) Putin and of not being very intelligent.

It was of course they who were not being very intelligent. Believing propaganda without question if for the terminally stupid, questioning things is what intelligent people do. And usually it take considerable patience for those who question propaganda to be proved right. We waited thirty years for the cover up of the Westminster Paedophile ring to be exposed.

So this story, only nine months after the event is quick really. Just shows how utterly lacking substance the US Government claims were.

Dutch dismiss reports alleging MH17 downed by Buk missile

The Netherlands has denied reports that the Malaysia Airlines plane was downed by a Buk missile, killing all 298 passengers and crew last July.

The Dutch Safety Board (DSB), which is investigating the cause of the crash, responded to reports released earlier by Netherlands broadcaster RTL alleging that the flight MH17 was downed by a Russian-made anti-aircraft missile system.

“The investigation into the cause of the accident is in full progress and focuses on many more sources than only the shrapnel,” the DSB stated.

“Additional investigation material is welcome, but it is imperative that it can be indisputably shown that there is a relationship between the material and the downed aircraft,” the agency emphasized Thursday in a statement.

RTL claimed on Thursday that a metal fragment from the crash site of the plane allegedly matches a surface-to-air Buk rocket. The piece was recovered by a Dutch journalist from the village of Grabovo several months ago, close to where the plane was brought down last year.

Earlier this month Ukrainian media made a gaffe, misquoting Dutch investigators as having accused Russia of shooting down the Malaysian Airlines flight.

DAVID ICKE Pays $166,000 To SETTLE LIBEL ACTION

British conspiracy writer David Icke and co-defendants have paid Canadian human rights lawyer Richard Warman $210,000 CDN (117,000 GBP) in damages and legal costs to settle a libel action against them.

In 1999-2000, Warman had worked with various Jewish and anti-racism groups to notify public venues in Canada of discriminatory elements within Icke’s conspiracy theories.

In retaliation, Icke included false allegations in his 2001 book Children of the Matrix alleging that Warman was trying to suppress Icke’s purported exposure of Satanic child abuse and murder.

David Icke made an out-of-court settlement on January 8th paying $90,000 CDN (50,000 GBP)on the eve of a long-delayed trial that was scheduled to begin in Toronto on February 2nd, 2015. The Court order formally discontinuing the claim was issued on 4 March 2015 thus paving the way for this announcement. Information obtained from litigation by Icke against his former US business partner demonstrated that at least 55,000 copies of Children of the Matrix had been sold worldwide.

Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist

Living the fairy tale
living the fairy tale (Image Source)

The political, business and academic elites and their servants in the print and broadcast media have to make you believe a phoney narrative about the state of the world, they dare not let us start talking about how much trouble the west is really in. The economies of most of the developed nations, the western democracies, are in effect bankrupt, their debts and obligations exceed their assets by considerable margins.

Burdened by ageing populations, high labour costs, soaring unemployment, supportably generous welfare payments, punitive taxation and bloated public sectors they are losing out to the enemy, – i.e. any country that has resources or whose economies are surging on the strength of exports of cheap manufactured goods, like Russia, China, India, Brazil, anyone with oil, gas, minerals, metals, gold etc.

Rather than admit multicultualism has failed, open – doors immigration policy has been economically and socially disastrous, and the oligarchical system badged up as Marxism lite, with its populist promises of fairness, equality and redistribution of wealth has broken every promise, your government and it’s media mouthpieces requires you to believe a certain narrative.

The story goes like this: The world is divided into good guys (white hats) and bad guys (black hats). The good guys consist of all Western governments and their allies, whether taken individually or collectively as members of the ‘international community’. Forget that most of the recent troubles stem from the interference of the FUKUS axis powers (France, UK, USofA), the United Nations and NATO in the domestic political affairs of sovereign states, or blithely and unilaterally tearing up bilateral and legally binding treaties like the one agreed with Russia that prevented the EU and NATO seducing into their membership any of the former Soviet states that became independent following the break up of the USSR.

The bad guys are mostly Russia and Iran, not so much China, although they are not exactly best friends with the west, the Chinese hold to much of our debt for western governments to risk pissing them off, thus it is Russia and Vladimir Putin who has to be demonised. Unfortunately Putin is not an arrested adolescent who wants everybody to like him. he understands that his job is to look after Russian interests long and short term.

Like Don Quixote, these governments are out there in a perilous world, perpetually tilting a the windmills of economic recovery, slaying dragons of terrorism, and fighting injustice by ensuring the rich get richer and the poor get shafted (viz. green energy policies that have made home heating unaffordable for many).

Thus when Cameron and Obama engage in a love in, mutually congratulating each other for the deft economic management that has led to financial recovery nobody can feel, (GDP up, benefit payments up, debt up, sales and incomes down; unemployment down, part time working, zero hours contracts, people excluded from the workforce up; inflation down, wages, saving, pensions devalued etc. we are not supposed to point out the obvious contradictions in the statistics that ‘prove’ what a good job our politicians are doing.

Then there have been the various brutal, undemocratic dictatorships, authoritarian and oppressive regimes that may have crushed dissent but managed to keep the people who did not rock the boat in relative prosperity, they had to be reduced to at worst rubble like Syria and Iraq, or a failed state like Libya.

So western leaders are fighting terrorists, jihadists, gangster states and ‘bad guys’ like Boko Haram who are out there doing infamy. Or as Kenneth Williams once said in Carry On Cleo, Infamy, infamy, they’ve all got it in for me.”

In the fairy tale world politicians inhabit ‘we’ have no aggressive intentions (‘We’ did not fund and support the arab Spring uprisings, or the rebellion in Ukraine, ‘we’ do not engage in false flag outrages, on spy on other nations (who are planning to harm us) and ‘our’ citizens (for their increased safety). We do not engage in realpolitik. We do not kill people who know too much, in order to protect national security. We have no ulterior motives. Our foreign policy is guided entirely by lofty moral principles. We have no geostrategic or economic interests. Energy resources and pipeline routes do not interest us. We are the good guys (White hats).

We, the western allies, would never conspire to bring about ‘regime change’ by deploying the air forces of three of the worlds five major military power to bomb the crap out of a little country of 5 million population (though we might consider, on humanitarian grounds, providing air support for a legitimate rebellion led by religious fanatics, tribal warlords and gangster (see Libya link above) nor would ‘we’ meddle in other states’ affairs to ensure certain political outcomes that suit our economic interests. Anyone who says we do a ‘conspiracy theorist’, a bounder, a cad and an all round rotter. We do not engage in ‘terrorism’ and never ‘talk to terrorists’ or deal with states or organizations that do. We are led by decent folk, who only want to do the decent thing.

We are the good guys, as the picture below shows.

Protesters Gather Around Europe To Demonstrate Against Undemocratic Secret Agreement With USA

Protests against the secretive Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership (TTIP) will take place today in cities all over Europe. The deal, the terms of which will give Corporate businesses the power to sue governments and overturn any laws made by the UK Parliament (or any elected elected assembly in nations that sign the treaty) which the corporate lawyers see as obstructing their ability to steal taxpayers’ money make a return their investment, has been largely negotiated in conditions ofr such secrecy that even our Members of Parliament and other elected representatives in European Unions and the USA have not been allowed to know what its clauses contain.

That which we do know of has only reached the public domain thanks to leaks and whistleblowing.

Today’s demonstrations will be held in fifteen locations across the UK including London, Bristol, Edinburgh and Bognor Regis to voice opposition to the deal. Those against it say it could lead to the privatisation of the NHS (see below) and the removal of food safety regulations to allow the sale of produce from GM crops and chlorine washed chicken to be sold in European shops without any legal requirement for labelling to inform consumers of what they are buying.

The European Commission (Euronazis) has done its best to suppress opposition to TTIP particularly in the UK by ruling out the involvement of public services in the deal. However, the UK Trade Minister Lord Livingston has admitted to the Huffington Post that talks about the NHS were still on the table. This is due to those enemies of democracy, The Labour Party having taken large chunks of the NHS outside the public sector by setting up independent health trusts and making General (family doctor) Practices into private businesses.

Another major concern for believers in democracy is the provisions in the treaty that would enable foreign investors – for example American firms investing in the NHS Trusts privatised by Blair’s Labour government – to sue a host government if they think their profits are affected by a change in policy.

The campaign against TTIP has been actively opposed by the usual suspects, the Occupy movement, the Unions and worker rights organisations and fringe left wing groups but has also aligned these groups with nationalist political movements that have seen an upsurge in popularity in the past few years as European nations surrendered more sovereign powers to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels while in the USA there has been an erosion of powers held by legislatures of the fifty states as more laws have centralized power in Washington D.C.

The controversial ACTA (Counter-terrorism) legislation, which was booted out of the European Parliament by MEPs after millions campaigned against it, is also said to have ben shoe-horned into the agreement at the insistence of the Obama administration. Plans to compel internet providers to monitor customers’ online activity and other breaches of an individual’s privacy and hand over data to security agencies, one of the core elements of ACTA, is rumoured to be included in TTIP.

These sneaky tactics to get authoritarian legislation onto the statute books by the back door when it has been thrown out by democratically elected lawmaking bodies is something Brussels has a track record for. The unpopular European Constitution, which would have been a massive step towards the creation of a single European superstate, was repackaged as ‘The Lisbon Treaty’ after convincing ‘No’ votes in the French and Dutch referendums in 2005. Two years later, when Ireland, the only European nation constitutionally bound to hold a referendum on any treaty affecting sovereign powers, voted down the Lisbon Treaty, the bureaucratic dictators said, “Wrong, vote again.”

And to give the Irish a clue as to what they could expect if they got it wrong again, the European Central Bank (ECB ) engineered the collapse of the Irish economy in the months before the second vote.

With Members Of The European Parliament making more noise that previously and the managers of the European Union under the closer scrutiny than previously (a European Commission candidate already rejected for conflicts of interest), campaigners hope they can repeat the success of ACTA and get TTIP kicked into touch as well.

Scientific study reveals conspiracy theorists the most sane of all people

If you’re a conspiracy theorist, then you’re batshit crazy, right?
That’s been the received wisdom among authority worshippers for years. Recent studies prove that just the opposite is true. (Leftie screechers and want-war hypocrites please NB )

A research team psychologists and sociologists (and as we all know olgies are science) in the U.S.A and United Kingdom say the data show that contrary to those mainstream media stereotypes, “conspiracy theorists” appear to be more sane than people who unquestioningly accept official versions of controversial and contested events.

The most recent study was published in July 2013 by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent. Titled “‘What about Building 7?’ A Social Psychological Study of Online Discussion of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories,” the study compared “conspiracist,” or pro-conspiracy theory, and “conventionalist,” or anti-conspiracy, comments on news websites.

The researchers were surprised to find that it is now more conventional to leave so-called conspiracist comments than conformist ones.

“Of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist,” the researchers wrote.

‘The research showed that people who favored the official account of 9/11 were generally more hostile’

So, among people who comment on news articles, those who discount official government accounts of events like the 9/11 attacks and the assassination of John F. Kennedy outnumber believers by more than two-to-one. That means the pro-conspiracy commenters are those who are now expressing what is considered conventional wisdom, while the anti-conspiracy commenters represent a small, beleaguered minority that is often scoffed at and shunned.

Perhaps becoming frustrated that their alleged mainstream viewpoints are no longer considered as such by the majority, those who are anti-conspiracy commenters often showed anger and disgust and resorted to name calling in their comments.

Yeah I know its a repost of an old story but as Cameron and other neo-fascists are once again calling for censorship of the web to suppress non-conformist views, I though I’d remind you what a load of crazy, swivel-eyed loons conformists are.

Another Big Result For The ‘Conspiracy Theorists’

German Author Reveals US CIA Corrupts Western Journalists.

That the print and broadcast news media in the free world is controlled by the invisible hand of the corporate / political, left-of-centre, globalist collective has been obvious for a long time to “those with eyes to see and ears to hear,” (funny how those Biblical phrases come in handy even for a heathen non – thesist like me, maybe its the portentous cadences of the King James Version’s early seventeenth century prose.)

When it was pointed out, as it often was in new media, that left and right leaning, and supposedly non partisan news channels and publications all appeared to be singing from the same song sheet, intelligent discussion was drowned out by shouts of “Conspiracy Theorist.”

A new book published in Germany has given those of us dubbed Conspiracy Theorists another win by providing proof that the United States Central Intelligence Agency has been paying western journalists to spin news and ensure American inteests were presented in the best light while those opposing American government or big business were demonized.

With that in mind, a lot of recent developments will suddenly make sense. Read more in this article appearing in the embed window below via News Beacon Ireland.

And remember, on a long timeline, those shouted down by cries of “Conspiracy Theory” are usually proved right.

4 Nation Cover Up On Fate Of MH17 – Laugh? I Nearly Shat

Perp Responsible For Downing In Ukraine of the Malaysian Airliner, Will Stay Hidden – five nation agreement to hide the facts implicates USA, Ukraine, Britain and Belgium

What about Malaysia, don’t they have an interest, you might well ask. Of course they do, but the government of Malaysia has an interest in the truth becoming public knowledge, while it seems to others do not.

But what amused me about the nearest thing we are going to get to a resolution to this terrible event? It was a laugh of bitter irony actually, not about the event itself but the vitriolic attacks on me by stupid people who wanted to brand me a conspiracy theorist and right wing extremist because I disbelieved the ludicrous claims made by Barack Obama that he had ‘compelling evidence’ (i.e. he read it on Twitter) that Russia was in some way responsible.

from Washington’s Blog – Posted on August 24, 2014 by Eric Zuesse

Regarding what caused the downing of the Malaysian airliner MH-17 in Ukraine on July 17th, the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, reported in a brief Russian-language news story on August 12th, that four days earlier (August 8th) a representative of that nation’s Prosecutor General office, Yuri Boychenko, had said that (as auto-translated by google), “the results [of the investigation] will be announced upon completion of the investigation and with the consent of all the parties who signed the corresponding agreement.”

This UNIAN report said that, “As part of the four-party agreement signed on August 8 between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia [all of which nations are allies of the United States and are cooperating with its new Cold War against Russia], information on the investigation into the disaster Malaysian ‘Boeing-777’ will not be disclosed.” In other words: the official ‘investigation’ is being carried out by four nations that, as U.S. allies, are hostile toward Russia. One of those four nations, Ukraine, is not only a prime suspect in possibly having shot this airliner down, but is currently waging a hot war to ethnically-cleanse the pro-Russian population out of southeastern Ukraine; and the initial ‘news’ reports in Western ‘news’ media regarding the downing of MH-17 had said that this airliner was probably downed by the local rebels there, who were trying to shoot down the Ukrainian Government’s bombers that are constantly bombing them. Some Western ‘news’ reports even speculated that perhaps Russia itself had shot this airliner down.

If the UNIAN news-report is correct, then there is no way that the ‘investigation’ will be able to be released to the public if it indicates that the Ukrainian Government (which, according to that news-report has veto power over the making-public of the study’s findings) is blamed for having shot the airliner down.

On August 12th, another pro-Ukrainian-Government ‘news’ site, gordonua.com, headlined, as auto-translated by google, “GPU: The results of the investigation [into the] crash [of] the Boeing 777 will be released with the consent of the parties,” and said, “Information about the accident MH17 in the Donetsk region will be published in obtaining the consent of all the parties that are involved in the investigation.” UNIAN was cited there as gordonua’s sole source. ‘News’ media didn’t probe the matter further.

The Causes of the MH17 Crash are “Classified”. Ukraine, Netherlands, Australia, Belgium Signed a “Non-disclosure Agreement” – Global Research

And so that you are forewarned against illiterate clown who comes along trying to tell you that only people who wear tin foil hats believe in conspiracies, let me remind you that a conspiracy is simply a group of people who are working together towards a mutually beneficial end and who will go to some lengths to keep knowledge of their collaboration out of the public domain. Simples – and not a tinfoil hat wearing, paedophile, shapeshifting, baby eating, alien reptillian Zionist banker in sight.
