Recording proves that Ukraine Snipers who shot protesters and police were hired by Opposition itself!
As noted by Russ Baker, a lot of the news coming out of Ukraine seems eerily familiar—and not in a good way.
And whatayaknow, the Russian state television channel RT has now published a leaked telephone conversation between Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton. In it, Paet relays some important takeaways from his recent trip to Ukraine. Among the highlights: that opposition protestors and police killed by sniper fire in the early days of the protests — which galvanized world attention — were actually the victims of guns hired by the opposition.

This follows on the heels of a leaked conversation between State Department officials over who would be best to install in the next Ukrainian government. As it would turn out, their choice became the next prime minister. Funny how things work out.
US intelligence and its ersatz-comrades at the National Endowment for Democracy have long been known to cook up shady protest movements. But Russian intelligence is just as much a player in the game. Though not known conclusively at the present time, it’s widely believed that each call was recorded and leaked by the FSB.

American news anchor Liz Wahl criticized Russia’s Putin just before quitting her job at the state-owned TV network Russia Today (RT) Wednesday, saying she is “proud to be an American” and could no longer “be a part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin.”
RT responded calling Wahl’s move “nothing more than a self-promotional stunt.”

In response to pressure from Moms Demand Action and a handful of allies, Facebook has announced some changes to the way it will treat pages that relate to firearms. The reforms stop a long way short of what the groups had wanted.
Per the Los Angeles Times:
Under intensifying pressure from gun control groups and New York Atty. Gen. Eric Schneiderman, Facebook is tightening its policies to make it more difficult for people to “illegally” sell or trade guns on Facebook and Instagram, particularly to minors.
The giant social network will block minors from seeing posts about gun sales and trades, the company said Wednesday.
Facebook said it would limit access to posts about gun sales and trades to people 18 and older. And it said it would require Facebook pages primarily used to promote the private sale of regulated goods and services to include language that reminds them to comply with laws and regulations and limit access to people 18 and older in the case of goods such as alcohol.
Any time Facebook receives a report about a post promoting the private sale of regulated goods such as guns, it will send a message to that user reminding him or her to comply with laws and regulations, Facebook said. Anyone searching on Instagram for sales of firearms will be shown similar reminders.
Facebook also said it would not allow users to post offers to sell regulated goods “that indicate a willingness to evade or help others evade the law,” the company said.
Moms Demand Action is claiming victory, of course, explaining in a press release that it was “gratified” that Facebook had agreed to “take meaningful steps.” In truth, this is a long, long way from what the group desired, which, according to Venturebeat, was for Facebook to “ban gun-themed fan pages on the site” completely.
04 Feb 2014 Representatives from the United Republic of Tanzania’s government and military gathered for the five-day United Republic of Tanzania Disaster Preparedness Exercise held in Bagamoyo from 3-7 February. The goal of the exercise is to assist with the validation of the recently drafted Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response Plan, the Tanzanian People’s Defense Forces (TPDF) Pandemic Contingency Plan and the Military Support to Civil Authorities (MSCA) Disaster Contingency Plan and to increase awareness of disaster preparedness and response challenges. The exercise was organized by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and implemented by the Center for Disaster and Humanitarian Assistance Medicine (CDHAM), based in the U.S. The exercise was essential for disaster preparedness and to enhance response capabilities, a key component of the AFRICOM Disaster Preparedness Program (DPP) designed to support African nations’ capacity to respond to [US lab-generated] pandemics and other disasters.
More anti Russian / Pro Cold War Propaganda…
On the FX show The Americans, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, a typical suburban couple in the 1980s. Two kids, nice house, they run a travel agency together. They’re also spies for the Soviet Union, moles sent to live among us. And their kids have no idea.
The Americans, which just started its second season, may be the first spy show created by a former spy. Joe Weisberg worked for the CIA in the early ‘90s, just as the Cold War was ending. He came from a very liberal family, so joining the CIA was a bit of a rebellion.
Yet after some time inside the organization, he started to doubt what the CIA was doing. “It was all kind of BS,” he says. “The intelligence they were providing wasn’t worth anything to the US government. But what you did to collect that intelligence was ask people to really risk their lives — for a lot of nothing.”
Weisberg also had a passion for writing. And that eventually led him to Hollywood. After Russian agents were found working undercover in the US in 2010, Weisberg got a call from DreamWorks executives. Weisberg decided to reset the events during the Reagan era.
There was one clear advantage to setting a spy show in the 1980s: no cell phones. “Philip can’t pick up a phone and call Elizabeth and say, ‘get out of there!’” Weisberg says. He’s also proud to show off what agents could do in the analog era, without great technology, when they had to rely more on brains, guile, and sometimes their bodies.
And there’s another unusual aspect to the show. The CIA keeps a close eye on Weisberg’s scripts to make sure that he doesn’t give away tradecraft he learned while at the Agency.
Though spying provides the tension in the show, at its heart The Americans is about a marriage. Elizabeth and Philip’s marriage was arranged by the KGB, but has become more and more authentic for the characters. “It’s the emotional underpinning,” Weisberg says, “It comes before the spy drama, it comes before the thriller aspects.”
OKLAHOMA CITY, Mar. 4, 2014 – A bill that would nullify Agenda 21 in Oklahoma passed through the state house today.
“This bill protects your private property from being acquired by eminent domain from without a public vote or public hearing,” said bill sponsor, Rep. Lewis Moore.
HB2807, known as the “Oklahoma Community Protection Act,” would prohibit any state agency or political subdivision from adopting or implementing “policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe upon or restrict private property rights without due process.”
It also would void any previous commitments which may have been made under Agenda 21 or a similar program.
It reads, “any debt or commitment to an international or federal entity whereby the citizens did not have the ability to exercise their constitutional rights shall be considered null and void.”
The bill passed by a vote of 66-26.
The United Nations passed Agenda 21 in 1992 at its Conference on Environmental and Development. The global initiative encompasses a wide range of programs meant to promote “sustainability.” It works its way into the U.S. system through a back door strategy, targeting local governments. Objections to Agenda 21 include violations of personal property rights, the erosion of state and local authority, and binding of the United States to international agreements contrary to the U.S. Constitution.
HB2805 now moves to the state senate, where it will first need to be passed by a committee before the full senate has an opportunity to concur.
The Tenth Amendment Center, a national think tank focused on reclaiming state power from the federal government, has been following the bill closely and working directly with legislators to ensure its success.

New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control. What will Gov Chris Christie do? Chris Christie on Gun Control
The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation.
The New Jersey Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10.
Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.
They discovered that the bill would affect tube-fed, semi-automatic rifles because the magazine cannot be separated from the gun.
Just having one such gun would turn a law-abiding owner into a felon overnight.
Possession of an “assault firearm” is a second-degree crime in New Jersey. The penalty is up to 10 years in jail and a mandatory minimum sentence of three to five years, with no chance of parole.
“If it becomes law, it would have zero impact on crime because criminals don’t follow bans. It would only affect legal gun owners by essentially tying their hands when they need to defend their lives.”
Even worse, the bill has no grandfather clause and no amnesty period. So as soon as this legislation becomes law, everyone in possession of these rifles is automatically a felon and the guns are subject to seizure by the government.
Remember just last May, these same legislators were caught on a hot microphone saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”
Mr. Bach said, “For years anti-gun Democrats have claimed that they have no agenda to ban and confiscate guns. But last year their true agenda was revealed on that hot mic. This bill is another step in that process.”
The timing of this drastic legislation is not by accident. New Jersey Democrats are determined to make Gov. Chris Christie squirm. Their objective is to make the potential Republican presidential candidate choose between local emotional pleas and national pro-gun voters.
State Senate President Steve Sweeney has had families of Newtown, Conn., school shooting at public events over the past few weeks to encourage passage.
It’s most likely that this radical bill will pass the Assembly and the Senate in the next few months. So, Mr. Christie’s veto power is the only thing that can stop the outright attack on gun owners and the Second Amendment.

Company aims to alert prisons of incoming threats
MOUNDSVILLE – Sometimes described as an “angry beehive,” the unmistakable sound of drones whizzing through the sky will be heard at the 2014 Mock Prison Riot from May 4-7 at the former West Virginia Penitentiary.
DroneShield LLC, a Virginia-based company that specializes in drone detection systems, will deploy drones and its drone detection technology during training scenarios at the four-day riot. Special operations teams will practice scenarios, in which drones will be flown over the prison walls to drop off contraband to “prisoners.”
According to Brian Hearing, co-founder of DroneShield, drones have become a growing concern with prison wardens as improved technology continues to make drones more widely available and inexpensive.
