Deadly bacteria release sparks concern at high-security Louisiana lab for vaccine research on pathogen that escaped –Several countries [aka the US] have studied using the bacteria as a bioweapon. | 2 Mar 2015 |A dangerous, often deadly, type of bacteria that lives in soil and water has been released from a high-security [Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3)] laboratory at the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana. Despite weeks of investigation by multiple federal and state agencies, the cause of the release and the extent of the contamination remain unknown, according to interviews and records obtained by USA TODAY. The Tulane incident involves the release, possibly in November or earlier, of a bacterium called Burkholderia pseudomallei…Tulane’s research, which has been halted by federal officials, was part of an effort to develop a vaccine against the bacteria [that was released].
Juraboev, who is also known as Adbulloh Ibn Hasan, came to the attention of authorities after he posted threatening messages to an Uzbek-language website in August 2014, according to a criminal complaint filed in US District Court in Brooklyn.
‘We too wanted to pledge our allegiance and commit ourselves while not present there,’ Juraboev wrote while using the name Abdulloh ibn Hasan.
‘I am in USA now but we don’t have any arms,’ he wrote.
‘But is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here?
‘What I’m saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do?’
During a meeting with law enforcement officials at his Brooklyn home, Juraboev said he would kill the president because ‘of Allah,’ and that he would also bomb Coney Island if asked to do so.
Juraboev also said he ‘wanted to be a martyr’ against the ‘polytheists and infidels’
Saidakhmetov and an informant watched videos of Islamic State training camps in Syria, according to court papers.
Saidakhmetov told the informant in September that he wanted to travel to Syria for jihad, or holy war, but that his concerned mother confiscated his passport so he couldn’t travel, the complaint said. He said he would lie and tell her he planned to go to Uzbekistan to visit relatives. When he called to ask for his passport back, she hung up the phone.
‘The flow of foreign fighters to Syria represents an evolving threat to our country and to our allies,’ said state US Attorney Loretta Lynch, who is Obama’s choice to be U.S. attorney general.
Saidakhmetov’s attorney, Adam Perlmutter, said his client was a ‘young, innocent kid’ who would plead not guilty.
‘This is the type of case that highlights everything that is wrong with how the Justice Department approaches these cases,‘ Perlmutter said. Juraboev’s attorney had no immediate comment.
Saidakhmetov booked a flight to Turkey on Feb. 19 and seemed like just another ‘regular American teenager,’ said workers at Nil Travel in Coney Island who helped him.
‘He was just like anyone around us. He was totally normal. He wasn’t nervous,’ said assistant manager Frank Cakir. ‘It’s just scary.’
Until their arrests Wednesday in connection with an alleged failed attempt to join ISIS in Syria, Saidakhmetov and Juraboev appeared to live the mundane lives of ordinary Brooklyn immigrants.
They also appeared careless in planning their alleged plot. One man, for instance, showed up at U.S. Homeland Security offices to apply for a travel document, authorities said. They sometimes communicated online because they believed it would be harder for authorities to trace.
Juraboev allegedly discussed assassinating President Barack Obama, according to the complaint. But he told an FBI agent that he “currently does not have the means or an imminent plan to do so.”
Juraboev and Saidakhmetov, authorities said, planned to embark on the journey to Turkey on Wednesday.
One of them discussed the possibility of hijacking a commercial flight to Turkey and diverting it “to the Islamic State, so that the Islamic State would gain a plane,” the complaint said. They also talked about joining the U.S. military in order to attack soldiers.
Juraboev and Saidakhmetov were arrested in New York; Habibov in Florida. They face charges that include attempting and conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, the complaint said.
Saidakhmetov was arrested Wednesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport attempting to catch a flight to Turkey, authorities said.
Juraboev, who was to catch a later flight, was arrested at his home in Brooklyn. Habibov, who Bratton said “helped organize and finance” the operation, was in Jacksonville, Florida, when he was picked up.
In addition to threats against Obama, the suspects allegedly talked of killing U.S. law enforcement officers. Juraboev allegedly mentioned planting a bomb at Coney Island if ordered to do so by ISIS.
An FBI intelligence bulletin to state and local law enforcement urged officers to be vigilant for not only recruits, but people who may want to carry out attacks.
“These individuals highlight the continued interest among U.S.-based violent extremist to support designated terrorist organizations,” the bulletin said.
Outside federal court in Brooklyn, attorney Adam Perlmutter, who represents Saidakhmetov, said his client will plead not guilty if indicted.
“This case really makes us question the federal government’s approach … to young Muslim men in America,” he told reporters. “They are very ham-fisted tactics. There is no attempt to intervene, to speak, to explore, to understand. There’s just the rush to prosecution, to arrest, and to conviction.”
A man appeared in court today after he was caught in an FBI sting allegedly buying a consignment of deadly ricin chemical that was sent to him hidden inside a toy car.
Mohammed Ammer Ali from Liverpool is accused of going to the darkest recesses of the internet and using the online currency bitcoin in an attempt to buy 500mg of the chemical that would have had the potential to kill hundreds of people, Westminster magistrates’ court was told.
The 31-year-old allegedly paid the equivalent of $500 (£325) to the FBI and received five phials of harmless white powder through the post.
Police said they had not uncovered any threat or plan for an imminent attack at home or abroad following the joint operation by officers from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit, Merseyside police and the US authorities.
Officers – some wearing masks and boiler suits – searched five properties including homes and businesses in Liverpool on 11 February, and seized a number of items, according to a police spokesman. Ricin is said to be hundreds of times more deadly than cyanide.
Mr Ali, wearing a dark sweater and trousers, sat in the dock at Westminster magistrates’ court for a three-minute hearing and spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth.
Mr Ali, a father of two, is accused of attempting to have a chemical weapon in his possession between 1o January and 12 February, contrary to the Criminal Attempts Act 1981 and the Chemical Weapons Act 1996.
He will stand trial at the Old Bailey, with his next hearing scheduled for 13 March.
Iraqi Army Downs 2 UK Planes Carrying Weapons for ISIL –Iraqi lawmaker says US prefers chaotic situation in Anbar Province — which is near cities of Karbala and Baghdad — as it does not want ISIL crisis to come to an end | 23 Feb 2015 | Iraq’s army has shot down two British planes as they were carrying weapons for the ISIL terrorists in Al-Anbar province, a senior lawmaker disclosed on Monday. “The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to a Monday report of the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq. He said the Iraqi parliament has asked London for explanations in this regard. The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.
ISIS plans to capture Lebanese territories, declare emirate – report | 23 Feb 2015 | Islamic State militants are planning to extend their positions to Lebanon and declare an “Islamic emirate” there, Lebanese media says. IS extremists are also planning suicide bombings in Beirut, according to the report. IS (formerly known as ISIS, ISIL) militants are “preparing military plans to declare an Islamic emirate in Lebanon very soon,” security sources told Lebanon’s Daily Star. The report added that the jihadists are preparing to establish a military committee that will oversee “Lebanese affairs” while “considering Lebanon as part of its state.”
France deploys aircraft carrier against ISIS in Iraq – Defence Ministry | 23 Feb 2015 | France has deployed its Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) extremist group in Iraq, French media report citing government officials. “The integration of the Charles de Gaulle in the operation…(in Iraq) begins this morning,” a member of Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian’s staff told AFP. The ship’s deployment, during which it will provide airstrikes against Islamic State militants, is expected to last until May at the earliest.
Then follow the mainstream media, which do not follow either the money or the weapons.

Over a million people have seen this video. You should, too.
After you see the video, you still may not believe it. “It just can’t be true!” At that point, click the link to Seymour Hirsch’s article. Hirsch is arguably the most distinguished American journalist-investigator in the field of foreign policy. He is relentless. He has the goods on Benghazi — what was really going on, by way of Turkey. He followed the weapons. Please forward this to “friendlies.”
in light of the recent (and growing) ISIS activity in Libya. Get ready to see more action in Libya…
Did you know Libya and Egypt are not allowed to defend themselves against ISIS? A UN arms embargo imposed during the Ghadaffi and Mubarak coups does not allow them to do that (makes me wonder why those two guys were suddenly taken out at the same time… to eventually bring ISIS to North Africa?). Yesterday, The Qataris recalled the ambassador from Egypt, protesting the recent air strikes on their ISIS puppets in Eastern Libya. Egypt ‘violated the UN arms embargo’ by striking ISIS. And Qatar was very, very upset about it… hmm.
Also, Egypt and Libya asked the UN to lift the embargo so they can defend themselves against ISIS, even using an ‘international coalition’ and the Brits (members of the UN security council) said no…. wow. On one side, they are arming ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but then they tie up Egypt and Libya’s hands so ISIS can grow in North Africa… yet another red flag indicating that this whole ISIS thing is a NATO/UN operation.
By the way, the ISIS bombing today in East Libya was retaliation (probably ordered by Qatar and/or NATO as a black op). They probably killed the Egyptian intelligence assets on the ground that provided the location of the ISIS targets to the fighter jets. This is a total betrayal by NATO!! The reason for this is because they want the ISIS presence to grow in Libya so they can scare the shit out of the EU. Watch for CNN reports that say ‘ISIS within miles from Europe.’
The next incremental step is a beefing up of NATO in the Mediterranean Sea (just like Denmark and Sweden are doing in the north). Italy may be lured into Libya (they always wanted to do that since the times of Mussolini, but the Libyans have always kicked their ass). I’ve been monitoring the Italian newspapers and they are ready to go and invade Libya. Everything is in place. Watch for a false flag attack in Italy, possibly a big city where there’s a high concentration of Muslim population. ISIS said they were going to ‘take Rome’ during the alleged 40-men-beheading video.
Also, France may tighten its grip on Algeria later on but I think that will come later… right now, the globalists are getting ready to hit Libya the same way they are hitting Iraq right now.
At the regularly scheduled meeting of the Republic of Texas, officially starting at 9:50 a.m. and held, as usual, at the rented VFW Post 4892 in Bryan, Texas, the congenial and unimposing group was raided at 10:10 a.m. by an army of policing agencies with flashing emergency lights: Police Departments of Bryan and College Station along with their Brazos County Sheriff’s Office counterparts (northeast of San Antonio) along with deputies from the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office (west of San Antonio), The Texas Rangers, Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol State Troopers, The Texas State Attorney General’s Office, the FBI, and the US Marshall Service. Ingress and egress from Harvey Mitchell Parkway was sealed even to the media that responded two hours later from KBTX television during the four-hour ordeal.
How is it that a supposedly free people can be subjected to intimidating, rough and highly intrusive search and seizure when assembling lawfully and peaceably from all corners of this vast Country of Texas to educate those in attendance about the Historical 1836 Republic of Texas Constitution and celebrate a Nation wide Valentine’s Day and a fellow Texian’s 89th birthday?
The lead Kerr County deputy named in the paperwork, Jeff McCoy, who initially pretended to be a guest from Houston at the freely open-to-the-public meeting, stood up and blocked the only exit to the Republic of Texas’ rented room with armed and threatening police, announcing that he had a search warrant but he would not present it despite repeated requests stating that it would be made available AFTER the investigation. Everyone present was put on notice that they were not to leave the room without permission and escort by uniformed officers, almost all armed and wearing bulletproof vests. Some 15 to 30 minutes later a fleeting copy of the search warrant surfaced unannounced on the main table of which was never officially presented to those detained and searched.
As if dangerous criminals, many of the Texian people – generally seniors of respected middle-class business, farming, broadcasting, engineering, scientific, health, veterans and faith-based backgrounds – were one-by-one physically searched on their person and in their vehicles, finger printed, detained and then had their personal belongings and property searched and seized. Surprisingly, the warranted DNA swabbing was omitted.
A receipt (not well detailed or itemized) was issued to only SOME whose property was seized. Therefore most all seizures that day are considered LEGAL THEFT. Among the items stolen were cell phones, iPads, laptops, business papers, Republic of Texas paperwork and coinage of precious metals along with other valuables. Some of the phones were essential to their owners in conducting business and schoolwork, safely traveling the highways and attending to emergency medical calls as health professionals. One of the senior Texians often featured in documentaries and alternative radio and known to suffer with health concerns had to be taken by emergency vehicle to a hospital as a result of the forced takeover of the peaceful assembly.
The team of investigators left with the trunk and backseat of an unmarked sedan apparently belonging to Deputy Jeff McCoy, fully packed with confiscated belongings without a copy of the Search Warrant provided to anyone associated with the Republic of Texas. Instead, the warrant was given to the Post Commander of the VFW facility who was instructed not to copy the document nor divulge its contents to anyone.
The fortuitously warrant revealed it was issued by 216th District Court Judge N. Keith Williams of Kerr County alleging an unauthorized summons had been issued by the Republic of Texas. The documents alleged to be unauthorized were a Writ of Mandamus and a Writ of Quo Warranto issued by “The Officers and Constituents of The International Common Law Court for the Republic of Texas to Melvin Rex Emerson Jr., Court Administrator, and Color of Law ID No. 24009018, 700 Main Street, Kerrville, Texas. Kerr County” and was so stated on the document “This writ is hereby served by said Petitioner upon you, Melvin Rex Emerson Jr. as an individual”. In no way was the “State of Texas” intimated to be part or parcel to the documents.
If the Writ of Mandamus and the Quo Warranto issued for the Republic of Texas International Common Law Court were purely frivolous in nature, then why did this judge call out HIS MILITIA to address this action? What instilled such fear in him? Why was it necessary to confiscate tens of thousands of dollars, Gold and Silver Metals being private and confidential property that was unrelated to the search warrant for a allegedly Class A Misdemeanor offense? One Texian noted that one officer confided that he probably would NEVER see his property again. Just who is the guilty party here? Could it be that the people of the Republic of Texas are rightfully fully vested with the power of the paperwork served on Judge Everson? Undoubtedly, additional paperwork needs to be issued! You decide.
Contrary to patently false reports by KBTX that the Republic of Texas and its assemblage were a militia group, the truth is that the Republic of Texas is a self-determined people attempting to throw off the yoke of military occupation of Texas through peaceful and lawful process. The entire land boundaries of the United States are also under military occupation thanks to the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

“The Non-Ratification of the 14th Amendment – Highlighted by Robert Wilson”
John Harold Jarnecke
President of the republic of Texas

A wary, sucker-punched Denmark kept a high alert Sunday after a gunman attacked a free speech forum featuring a controversial cartoonist, then fired shots near a synagogue before police tracked him down and killed him when he opened fire again.
Two civilians died in the attacks Saturday and early Sunday. Five police officers were wounded, according to Danish authorities.
While the immediate threat seemed to have passed, and investigators stressed there was no evidence yet that the slain suspect had worked with anyone else, police maintained a heavy presence on Copenhagen’s normally placid streets. It will stay that way for a while, Danish authorities said, to help residents and visitors feel secure.
As of Sunday night, police still hadn’t released the name of the gunman, who they said was wearing clothes similar to the synagogue shooter and had two guns when officers shot him to death early Sunday.
Police did say in a statement that the suspected shooter was a 22-year-old man born in Denmark. He was “well-known by the police for several criminal incidents,” according to police.
Those incidents include weapons violations and violence, according to police, who said he also was “known in connection to gangs.”
Carsten Ellegaard Christensen, a national security reporter at the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, provided additional details on the suspect, citing sources with detailed knowledge of the investigation.
Christensen was told the dead gunman was Danish-Arab, living in Copenhagen, and was on the radar of authorities for gang activity, not for suspected Islamist extremism. So far as police know, he had not traveled to Syria or Iraq.
The gunman was recently in jail after being convicted of stabbing another young man with a knife several times on board a commuter train, Christensen said. The man survived.
Inspired by Charlie Hebdo attack?
They say they have no evidence he worked with anyone else, but are “operating under a theory” that he may have been inspired by the January terror attack in France, according to Jens Madsen, chief of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service.
Seventeen people died in the Paris attack, which began with an assault on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The magazine had published images of the Prophet Mohammed.
In this weekend’s attacks, police identified the suspect from surveillance footage that shows him getting into a taxi after the first shooting, Copenhagen police investigator Jorgen Skov said.
“By interviewing the taxi driver, we got the address where he dropped off the person,” Skov said. “We have been keeping that address under observation.”
He said when officers tried to contact the suspect at the Copenhagen apartment early Sunday, the suspect opened fire. Police fired back, killing the gunman.
No officers were injured.
In light of the attacks, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said the country would have to come up with new solutions to the threat of extremism.
“As a nation, we have experienced a series of hours we will never forget,” she said Sunday.
“We have tasted the ugly taste of fear and powerlessness that terror would like to create. But we have also, as a society, answered back.”
‘Everybody, of course, panicked’
The carnage began Saturday afternoon, when the gunman stormed a Copenhagen cafe where Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks was attending a free speech forum.
Vilks is known for his controversial depictions of the Prophet Mohammed and has been targeted for death by Islamic extremists because of his work.
The man began firing from what police described as an automatic weapon.
“Everybody, of course, panicked in the room and tried to run,” professor and satire researcher Dennis Meyhoff Brink said. “We were just hiding … and hoping for the best.”
Brink said he heard about 30 shots around 3:30 p.m. Saturday. He said he also heard someone yelling in a foreign language.
The cartoonist wasn’t hurt, but the gunman did kill a 55-year-old man and wounded three officers before fleeing, police said. The man who died in the cafe shooting has not been named by authorities, but the Danish Film Institute said he was director Finn Noergaard.
Vilks told CNN that his bodyguards hustled him into a safe room, where they put him on the floor until the danger had passed. He said it seemed to him that police were surprised by the firepower wielded by the gunman.
“The gunman, he had an advantage because his strong rifle could easily penetrate these glass doors while the policemen’s handguns didn’t work so well,” Vilks said.
The attacker made it just inside the building but apparently got no farther, said Helle Merete Brix, a journalist and founder of the Lars Vilks Committee. The group supports the cartoonist, whose portrayals of the Prophet Mohammed angered many in the Muslim world.
Bodyguards returned fire, Copenhagen police said, but the gunman managed to flee.
Hours later, the man began firing on officers at a Copenhagen synagogue. The officers were wounded, but a man providing security for a confirmation party behind the synagogue died, police and the Jewish Society of Denmark said. The Jewish Society identified him as 37-year-old Dan Uzan.
“The Jewish Society is in shock about the attack, but everyone’s thoughts are first and foremost with Dan’s family and friends, and with the wounded police officers and their families,” the Jewish Society said.
Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II offered her condolences and urged residents to “stand together and and guard the values upon which Denmark is built.”
Cartoon of Mohammed with dog’s body
Vilks, who has survived two previous attempts on his life, became a target after his 2007 cartoon depicting Mohammed with the body of a dog — an animal that conservative Muslims consider unclean.
In a CNN interview later that year from his home in rural Sweden, Vilks said the drawing was calculated to elicit a reaction.
“It should be possible to insult all religions in a democratic way,” he said at the time. “If you insult one (religion), then you should insult the other ones.”
Like Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier — who was killed in last month’s Paris attack — Vilks was one of nine faces on a “Most Wanted” graphic published by al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine for “crimes against Islam.”
Others include a pair of Danish journalists who published 12 cartoons depicting Mohammed in the Jyllands-Posten newspaper; Florida pastor Terry Jones, who burned a Quran; and “Satanic Verses” author Salman Rushdie.
Because of that, Brix said, “there’s no doubt” the Copenhagen event was targeted because of Vilks, who has “not been able to live a normal life” for years, the Lars Vilks Committee said.
But the Prime Minister stressed that the challenges Denmark now faces were not spawned by a religion at large.
“This is not a battle between Islam and the West, and it is not a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims, but a battle between the values of freedom for the individual and a dark ideology.”
In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck drug company vaccines (Polio) had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953 – 63.
For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.
In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video.
At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population, but this shocking video proves that it was deliberately added to the vaccine by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, which was “good science” at that time.
Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?
Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.
He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.
When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what’s now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenza virus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century.”
Silent Epidemic, by award winning film director Gary Null, is the first documentary to investigate thoroughly the true medical record and the historical evidence about vaccine marvels. Conventional medicine has herald the invention of vaccines as a miracle of modern science. It claims that vaccines have been proven to prevent and eradicate infectious diseases. We are told that vaccines are safe and effective, and that “herd immunity” can be achieved if a high percentage of a population is vaccinated. However, does the science support these claims and what are the untold consequences?
