The Catalonia Independence Crisis....Real movement...or another "Maidan"?

Map of Spain showing 17 autonomous Regions

This morning I'm finally getting around to posting on the independence crisis in Catalonia, Spain.  I've been distracted recently by the False Flag in Las Vegas Nevada.  But since that was sent down the memory hole yesterday with the faux interview of the chief witness on the "Ellen" TV show, we will have somewhat of a breather--before the inevitable next assault on sanity, reason and humanity.

The situation in Catalonia is very complicated and, for a long time I was on the fence about who is "right" in the ancient region of Catalonia, the pro independence...or the pro unity forces.  I was in Spain and Barcelona on holidays in 2015 and was stunned at the beauty of the region in general and the city of Barcelona in particular.  The Catalonians have a lot to be proud of and they are a very proud people.

It seems that the Spanish government has been slow off the mark in dealing with the insurgency.  They had backed off and were tolerant of the independence movement right up to the moment that the pro Independence movement handily won the referendum (while it appears from the pie chart in the link below that the majority did not vote at all.)

The Catalonia parliament approved an independence referendum which went ahead on 1 October despite being suspended by Spain's Constitutional Court.
The Spanish government tried to stop voting and hundreds of people were hurt in scuffles with police at polling stations.
While Catalan authorities say just under 90% of voters backed independence, turnout was only 43%.

Just today the government in Madrid has thrown off their "tolerance" of the independence movement and are "cracking down" on the leaders and on the region.

From RT
The Spanish Government announced that it is about to begin with the procedures for the application of the Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution in the autonomous region of Catalonia.

In its statement, the Spanish government said it will begin with procedures for the application of the Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which allows the central government in Madrid to suspend the political autonomy of a region if it breaks the law or declares independence.

According to the current plans, the procedures for the application of Article 155 are set to begin on Saturday, October 21st.
From Fort Russ
The Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy also sent a letter to the Catalonian regional leader Carles Puigdemont, urging him to clarify the position on the region's independence. The latter failed to do so, though he said the Catalonian side is always ready for a dialogue with Madrid, adding that the region might declare its independence in the case of absence of a dialogue with Madrid.

In the past, the Spanish government has already warned of a possibility to begin with the application of the article 155.

The Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution allows the central government in Madrid it to take over the running of an autonomous region, should it declare independence or violate the constitution. It is considered an extreme measure and can only be applied with the consent of the absolute majority in the Senate.  
Currently, there are 17 autonomous communities in Spain.

There is no doubt in my mind that the pro-independence movement is very popular on the streets of Barcelona.  While we were there, "Catalonian" flags flew from every second building...and all the Catalonians we spoke to about the topic (guides and taxi drivers) were pro independence.  One warm late summer evening, while we were on the rooftop café of our hotel in central Barcelona, enjoying a drink under the Barcelona star-filled night sky and gazing at the city skyline....we heard the rumble of a loud demonstration marching down the street.  We asked the server what it was and were told it was just another in the endless series of public pro independence demonstrations.

At the time, I was concerned by the all sounded vaguely and disturbingly familiar to me.  I grew up in Ontario, Canada in the 1960's and 70's during the time of the pro-independence movement in the neighbouring province of Quebec.  From the perspective of an Ontarian...the Quebec independence movement was a non-starter.  A province smack in the middle of a country wants to become independent and thus fracture my country into two?   No.  A province that is and always has been a net "taker" from the federal purse believes it is getting a "raw deal?"  No.  But according to the constitution, Quebec did have the legal right to conduct an independence referendum and, based on a victory in that referendum, negotiate an "exit" from the Canadian federation.

Luckily, the pro-unity faction won the vote and Canada still exists today.  I must add that I have always been skeptical about that referendum vote.  It was very close, just a percentage point apart and I believe there was some "fudging" going on at the ballot box.  I also believe that the pro-independence faction was financially and politically (the media coverage) supported by the usual "divide and conquer" suspects in New York.  If Canada had broken up....we knew that the vultures were already sitting high on their branches waiting to swoop down and pick the carrion from the Canadian carcass....ah but that is still a NAU work in progress, folks.

But, back to what is happening in Catalonia, Spain.  The people we spoke to during our holiday there sound very much like the Quebeccers did back in the 60's and 70's....all filled with "patriotic fervor" and love of the Catalonia homeland and resentful of the rest of Spain which they described to be parasitic and fundamentally unfair vis a vis the division of the taxes paid by the people of Catalan to the federal coffers.  Catalonia was not getting their fair share.  Believe it or not, the Quebec Libre's sounded the same, even though Canada pays Quebec a healthy "bonus" to stay in Canada, the Quebeccers felt aggrieved financially, but, more importantly they felt that their French culture was slowly being eroded, surrounded as it is by an English speaking society.

Coincidentally, Catalonia's history also includes strong French roots and affinity.  Looking at the map above, you will see that it borders France and actually belonged to France at certain points during the last two thousand years.

So, in my opinion, the Catalonians, like the French Quebecers are, to an extent, living in the past...and trying to preserve something which is slip-sliding away.  But it appears that Spain, like Canada has already given a lot of independence to its regions, calling them "autonomous".  So I believe that what is happening in Catalonia is, again, similar to what happened in Quebec--i.e.,some deep-pocketed foreign-based "divide and conquer" entities are stirring up the population of Catalonia and filling the heads of the people with nationalistic dreams of "pie in the sky" independence.  Here is a link from RT that supports this notion:

"Are Catalonian nationalists copying Maidan's ‘propaganda’ handbook? (VIDEOS)
Published time: 17 Oct, 2017 16:31
[discusses two videos, one from Ukraine and one from Catalan that appear to be appealing to nationalist fervor and are "pro independence"]

"....both videos contain footage of police brutality, and both call on the audience to help them by sharing the video to defend democracy, or European values.
At the end of both videos, viewers are warned to support the cause, “before it’s too late.”  
The video was shared on social media and raised some questions, criticisms and debate...."  

From the BBC

"Spain is to start suspending Catalonia's autonomy from Saturday, as the region's leader threatens to declare independence.

The government said ministers would meet to activate Article 155 of the constitution, allowing it to take over running of the region.
Catalonia's leader said the region's parliament would vote on independence if Spain continued "repression".
Catalans voted to secede in a referendum outlawed by Spain.
Some fear the latest moves could spark further unrest after mass demonstrations before and since the ballot on 1 October.
Spain's supreme court declared the vote illegal and said it violated the constitution, which describes the country as indivisible.
Article 155 of the constitution, which cemented democratic rule three years after the death of dictator General Francisco Franco in 1975, allows Madrid to impose direct rule in a crisis but it has never been invoked.
BBC Madrid correspondent Tom Burridge says that for Madrid this is about upholding the rule of law in Catalonia, protecting the Spanish constitution and disciplining what it sees as an unruly, disobedient devolved government.
However, the central government wants to minimise the risk of large-scale demonstrations, our correspondent says. Civil servants and government lawyers have thought long and hard about what measures to adopt and when and how they should be implemented.

Now that the pot has been stirred, the BBC stands back and assumes the pose of the objective bystander, onlooker.  But Putin is not fooled.  Read the following from RT, where Putin alleges that some entities have been working for a very long time to selectively foment de-stabilizing movements in Europe.  "Selectively", being the operative word.  Please read the following report from RT and I will have final thoughts in comments to follow:

Putin on Catalonia: EU triggered rise of separatism by supporting Kosovo independence

EU countries bolstered separatist sentiment in Europe when they bowed to US pressure and supported Kosovo breaking away from Serbia. They now face such consequences as the Catalan crisis, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin says.
As for the situation with Catalonia, we have seen a unanimous condemnation of the independence supporters by the EU and a number of other states,” Putin said. “Regarding that, I have to say – you should have thought about it earlier.”

Did they not know about centuries-old contradictions of this nature in Europe? They knew, didn’t they? But at the time they de facto welcomed the disintegration of a number of states in Europe, with undisguised relish,” he added.
The EU’s “unanimous support of Kosovo’s secession” has proved a turning point, and Europe now faces the repercussions of short-sighted policies aimed at “pleasing the bigger brother from Washington,” Putin believes.

Putin mentioned the 2014 Crimean referendum, which led to the region’s secession from Ukraine and ultimately its reunification with Russia, as a development that was “disliked by many.
And now, there you have it – Catalonia, Kurdistan in another region, and the list might be far from complete,” he added.
It turns out that in the eyes of some of our colleagues, there are legitimate fighters for independence and freedom, and then there are separatists, who cannot defend their rights even through democratic procedures. Those like us say all the time that such double standards – and it’s a glaring example of double standards – are a serious threat to the stable development of Europe and other continents, to the implementation of integration processes worldwide,” Putin said.
Matters in Catalonia came to a head when local authorities pushed for the October 1 referendum, in the teeth of objections from Madrid, which deemed it illegal. The vote took place, despite a massive police crackdown on the separatists, and led to a standoff between Barcelona and Madrid. The local Catalan government declared “suspended independence” and called for dialogue, while the federal Spanish authorities urged the region to clarify its status.
In the most recent developments, Madrid threatened Barcelona with revocation of its autonomy via Article 155 of the constitution. The Catalan Government, in its turn, promised on Thursday to declare true, not-suspended independence if such a hostile move takes place.

So, in summary, I am opposed on general principle to the pro-independence movement in Catalonia. I cannot see where this tiny region (as beautiful and resource-rich as it may be) will fare any better off by itself than  it is now linked to the larger country of Spain. I think the people have been deliberately whipped into a frenzy of nationalism...just like the Ukrainians were in the square at Maidan...and probably by the same nefarious forces. Instability is the hallmark of the perps. Divide and conquer is their age old strategy. Why in the case of Catalonia? Because they can...first of all....But considering more venal reasons...I believe the perps would like to "carpet bomb" sections of Christian Barcelona. Just like they are now doing in Raqqa, Syria, they would like parts of the city destroyed...and particularly the world famous UNESCO protected edifice of Sacrada Familia... I knew from the moment I saw that glorious cathedral and walked through its supernatural looking interior...that the perps would never let it stand. They will never allow it to world-wide praise in 2025. The Catalonians are dupes if they can't see what this is all about.

Jesus Campos re-emerges (briefly) from Memory Hole to appear on "Ellen"

American Everyman Blogger
Scott Creighton analyses the latest
insult to Americans

As a Canadian watching from the hinterlands of (as I was once told by a NYT fellow forumist) "America's back yard that we just haven't landscaped yet", I keep watching, mesmerized and horrified.  How much more can they take?  I ask.  I have a lot of  "drafts" of posts on other topics that I want to put up here...but can't seem to drag myself away from their latest false flag.  This FF is so "in your face" so insulting and taunting--that for Americans to simply lie back and take it--is gringeworthy to watch.

Yesterday, my blogging colleague, Ed(itor) from Occurrences made reference to one of my earlier posts on this topic.  He said my urging American's to rise up "en Masse" was unrealistic...because Americans are unable to come together on anythingWell, if Americans can't come together in response to an "en Masse" "kick in the teeth", "boot in the @$$" and "slap in the face" ... like the one described by Scott in the video above...they cannot be regarded as a nation.  This is where a key witness to a mass shooting goes into hiding and then comes out on a "degenerate" TV talk show...complete with a military background-style "handler" and mumbles his way through the third (or is it the fourth?) version of his story--no cross examination (one of the rudiments of justice).  Ellen, (who I have always been unable to watch due to her faux womanhood/ball-less mannish persona) makes it clear that this is the only "interview" Campos will be giving because "[he] has already been through too much." Then Ellen gives the lying, compromised eyewitness some prizes!  Prizes?...for lying to protect wealthy corporations against the lawsuits of real victims? 

Then we find out that Ellen is an investor in the "slot machine bidness"?  C'mon folks!  Are U really going to put up with THIS?  If you are...then it's all over for you.  You don't deserve to be a nation anymore...if you will put up with these rank, stinking, pus-filled so-called federal Police forces and "intelligence agencies"--that make any Mafioso gang look like law abiding citizens.

Despite Ed(itor's) doubts, I'm going to again post my list of possible remedies for your belated consideration:

"...Being solutions-oriented, I can make the following suggestions:

Americans en masse refuse to pay taxes...the IRS cannot prosecute the entire country - refuse to fund criminal agencies...get a class action lawsuit on your mass refusal taken to court where your grievances can be heard.

Americans en masse turn off their TV's and only get information via the Internet - at least then there's a small hope they will access the truth....this is already happening.

Americans en masse boycott the large corporations that fund the evil...such as the multi-media Hollywood "entertainment" companies and perp-owned like Starbucks - stop funding the zio-infested mega corporations.

Americans en masse refuse to vote, or, better yet...spoil their ballots. Write "None of the Above" on their ballots...and demand that the numbers of these spoiled ballots be reported with the results...when the number of spoiled ballots exceeds the number of ballots of the winner...the election should be declared "null and void".

VANISHED: ‘Hero Security Guard’ and Star Witness of Las Vegas Shooting is Missing

Las Vegas Shooting Witnesses Disappear
down Memory Hole

Yesterday, in my CawRANT Events #55, I wrote about Las Vegas Mass Shooting Witness Kymberley Suchomel dying in her bed under unusual circumstances the day after she went public on Facebook about her experience at the shootings...including the claim that the crowd was being pursued and shot at from all angles by armed gunmen.

Last night, I woke up from a deep sleep and began to imagine what it must have been like for 28 year old Kymberley.  A young woman immersed in the attactions and distractions of her times...suddenly having to face up to such evil running amok on this planet.  Apparently she lived alone...too bad...that was probably the worst mistake of her life.  I imagined a scenario like this:

Kimberley, asleep in her bed at night hears a knock on the door.  She gets up to answer it and calls "Who's there?" from her side of the locked door.  "Police!" is the answer.  She looks through her keyhole and sees a police ID badge held up to the spyhole.  "We want to talk with you about the shooting."  She opens the door dressed in her nightclothes.  Several burly men in uniforms enter the room.  "Get back in your bed!" barks one of them.  Inexplicably to Kymberley, their guns are drawn.  She gets back into her bed.  "Turn your back to the ceiling and keep your head turned down!"  The next, and last, thing Kymberley knows is the feeling of a sharp prick to the back of her right shoulder.  Like she's being given an injection.  Fade to black.

Now, on today's morning blogroll, from the excellent blog, 21st Century Wire...we have the mystery of the missing security guard....Jesus Campos...who vanished just as he was about to give five interviews to the M$M and "tell all" about what happened to him during the "crazed lone gunman" (TM) attack at the Mandalay Hotel.  Please read the following post which I have copied in its entirety and I will have final thoughts in comments to follow:


Last week, 21WIRE reported how the Las Vegas police and FBI had suddenly changed their story of the timeline of events associated with Mandalay Bay security guard ‘hero’ and police star witness, Jesus Campos and the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock.

*Note* – The Las Vegas mass shooting, currently modern America’s deadliest, has already been cycled out of most trending media reports in less than two weeks, as most mainstream outlets have now focused the public’s attention on a ready-to-go show trial involving disgraced Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

In addition, reportage by former Project Veritas operative Laura Loomer, suggests that the Campos family may have had a gag order placed on them not to talk about the mass-shooting case.
Now we can report that Jesus Campos is missing.
This has all the hallmarks of a cover-up. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media appear to be disinterested in this story now.
FOX News confirmed this morning:
The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been seen since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said.
David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) told reporters Friday that he got a text the night before saying Jesus Campos was taken to a UMC Quick Care facility, though he did not specify where or whom the text came from.
A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told Fox News on Monday that they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting them.
Multiple requests from Fox News for SPFPA to comment on the matter were not returned Monday.
Hickey said he was meeting with MGM officials Thursday afternoon in the hours before Campos’ scheduled television appearances, including one with Fox News.
“For the past four days he’s been preparing … we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone,” Hickey told reporters, according to Fox 5 Las Vegas.
Hickey said Campos had requested to go public and wanted to tell his story and move on from the Oct. 1 shooting investigation. Police say he was shot just before the crazed gunman killed 58 at music festival on the Las Vegas Strip – though the sequence of events is still in dispute.
Campos was last photographed in public on Oct. 10, accepting an “SPFPA Hero Award” for bravery in the line of duty, while dining with Hickey and others at a high-end Vegas steakhouse. But soon afterward, investigators said that the security guard was shot before the massacre, raising questions about whether the hotel did enough to prevent the bloodshed.
Hickey has said that before he vanished, Campus was looking forward to telling his side of the story.
“Right now I’m just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is. It’s highly unusual,” Hickey said Friday. “I’m hoping everything is OK with him and I’m sure MGM or the union will let (media) know when we hear something,” he said.
(Fox News’ Greg Norman contributed to this report)
SEE ALSO: The Las Vegas Mass Shooting – More to the Story Than We’ve Been Told

Yes, I made up the scenario where Kymberley is murdered by a deadly injection...but this is probably exactly what went down, folks.  I figure my pure imagination is just as good as their pure evil.  Now the only other prominent witness to come forward has gone missing...and the Main$tream Media no longer cares.  What does that tell you?  It tells you that the entire incident is another evil concoction by the usual perps...Due to the fact that we have blamed the entire atrocity on a man who is conveniently dead...there is no need for any further investigation...nobody else will ever be held accountable...particularly not the billions dollar rich Hotel Mandalay with its flank of billion dollar lawyers.

And I just received a notice from my anti-virus software that my computer is being hacked so I better post this before IT get's disappeared.  To be continued.....

....Okay folks.  I published the above and computer is working fine.  Just wanted to add this link from The Truthseeker this morning that discusses the proverbial "drills" that usually accompany these false flag atrocities.   Sure preceeded the Las Vegas shootings.  Kudos to Penny for your Thoughts making it to The Truthseeker!

CawRANT Events #55

CawRANT Events #55

Good morning everybody!  It is a grey, rainy day on the West Coast.  Fall is definitely in full progress.  I mowed the lawn yesterday for hopefully the last time of the year.  Today, I'm going to have a shortened version of CawRANT Events.  The information below was posted on Global Research with the note at the bottom to "share" as widely as possible.  I am going to post it in its entirety because it's already been removed from its original source (I believe Facebook) and before it gets sent down the M$M memory hole, as many alternative bloggers as possible need to post it for posterity:

UPDATED:  Here is a link to INFOWARS that gives more information about Kymberley, including the fact that she was living with a husband and daughter but that her husband had left for work at 4:30 a.m. the night she died and was away from the home when she died.

Kymberley Suchomel

"A woman by the name Kymberley Suchomel, 28, who attended the Oct. 1 Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, passed away Monday at her Apple Valley home just days after she had survived the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history unscathed, reports say.
Suchomel, who posted her eyewitness account of the Las Vegas massacre in astonishingly vivid detail to her Facebook page on Oct. 4, subsequently passed away in her home on Oct. 9 from what reports are claiming were ‘natural causes.’
Shockingly just days before her death, Suchomel posted key details about the shooting to Facebook contradicting the official narrative that Stephen Paddock is a lone gunman.
“From about 50 feet in front of us, and a little to the right, fire crackers were set off. Let me repeat that… FIRE CRACKERS WERE SET OFF. I verbally stated “some asshole just shot of fire crackers in close proximity to so many people”. I was literally pissed off. You could see Jason Aldean look to his left kind of startled by it, but he was also clearly irritated. I would say about 15 seconds later, the first volley of gunfire was released,” the eyewitness wrote.
She went on…
It was a shorter volley than any of the others, and the gunfire was not as close together either. EVERYONE looked up, down, around. We thought it was more fire crackers at first, but then Ricky reached over, told us all to put our boots on, quickly. And the volley ended. Then people started to panic. The gentlemen behind me looked at me as I was putting on my boots, half laying down, and said “calm down crazy, its just fireworks, jeez”. That is when the 2nd volley went off, Ricky yelled at us all to get down, flat, & we immediately knew there was someone shooting at us. I remember getting down, but I didn’t lay flat for some reason, thinking- oh my gosh, I need to get flatter than I am now, but my body just wouldn’t let me. That was the 2nd volley. At the end of that volley ( I am still struggling to get my boots on), we turned and tried to run, but the people behind us still weren’t moving. I yelled at the lady “RUN! ITS GUNFIRE! RUUUUUUUUUNNNNN!!!”
Third volley of gunfire hits astroturf
According to Suchomel, the shooting was ‘close’ and felt like a ‘literal hell.’
“[When] the 3rd volley hit… and it was close. Very, very close to us. I could physically see the impact of the bullets on the astro-turf, I could feel the warmth & the passing of bullets. Once that 3rd volley was over, Casie linked her arm into mine, and we decided at that moment we weren’t stopping- we were getting the Hell out of there. And I do mean Hell. We were in literal Hell. The gentlemen that mocked me stating it was just fireworks fell to the ground, and he never got back up. The lady behind me (who was now in front of me) who was terrified as I told her to run, never got back up. I actually had to physically step over her body to run (something I am still struggling with, so please don’t attack me. I was absolutely in flight-or-fight mode). There was another person to my right who also wasn’t moving. We ran. I don’t know what direction we ran, I don’t know towards which landmark we ran. We just ran. It was at this time our group got split up. Casie & I were together. Ricky, Cassie & Mendy were together.”
Soon after, according to her account, she started to panic when she had realized with ‘one-hundred percent’ certainty that there was indeed more than one shooter and that multiple gunmen were, in fact, in the crowd!
“We were rounding some sort of corner maybe- and I looked to the right and I saw this large cowboy sitting down with his legs spread, holding a blood-soaked woman. I thought to myself “we NEED to hide”, but as I looked quickly for somewhere to go, the gunfire once again got closer and closer. We couldn’t hide because they (and I do mean THEY) were chasing us. That exact moment is when I started to really panic. That is the exact moment in which I thought this was it, I was going to die, I was never going to see my family again. So, as we are running, we approach this fence where men are throwing women over, and we ran up to it as they had knocked It down, so we were able to get out. As we crossed the threshold of the venue, my mind went straight to other mass shootings and hearing the victim’s families in my head talk about how they never got to say goodbye. I did not want this for my husband (who was at work) & my grandma (who had my daughter, Scarlett). So, at10:07 pm I called my husband [frantically] leaving him a voicemail- telling him that I loved him and was in the middle of a shooting & I wasn’t sure if I would make it out alive,” she explained.
“Next, while still running, I called my grandma to tell her the exact same thing. But the gunfire wasn’t stopping this whole time. It wasn’t ceasing. It wasn’t slowing down. And It was directly behind us, following us. Bullets were coming from every direction. Behind us, in front of us, to the side of us. But I know, I just know, that there was someone chasing us. The entire time I felt this way,” she explained “The farther we got from the venue, the closer the gunfire got. I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and Isay MEN because there was more than one person. There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one.”
“As we were running, we kept changing direction, because it felt like no matter what direction we took, we were being followed. So we ended up running in a weird triangular path. The first place I remember getting to was a parking lot, and I told Casie (who was slightly in front of me) we needed to get under one of the trucks. She turned to me and started her way back to me, and that is when the gunfire got even CLOSER than ever before. It was RIGHT THERE. It was within the parking lot,” the eyewitness explained. “Everyone around us was panicking once again. So we ditched the idea of getting underneath a vehicle, and we continued the run for our lives. If you know me, you know I am a big girl, who is out of shape, and who definitely does not run for any reason. But I can tell you I ran like I have never run before.”
She continued on with her post, writing:
The 2nd place I remember going by was Hooters- which is where we met back up with the rest of our small group. We ran towards the entrance thinking we could take cover there, but as we got closer, a stampede of people ran out, terrified. We could only conclude that there was another gunman inside of that hotel. This made us even more scared- we had nowhere to go- no one to trust. At some point, we ended up at the airport & even entered the building for safety. Everyone as we entered were screaming at the staff “IS IT SAFE IN HERE?” but we weren’t getting anyone to answer us, so after running about 30 feet into the building, not getting the answers we so desperately needed, we decided it, too, wasn’t a safe spot, so we got out of there quickly and continued running.
After all this running, we were tired, sore & having to stop to cough, gag and even vomit. We ran across an intersection & us & another group of people pleaded with a limo driver to let us in and get us out of there. He was clearly confused & didn’t understand what was going on, so he didn’t let us in. Next, we ran to a taxi van & she was willing to let us in, but she told us her van only held 4 people & she wasn’t going to let the 5 of us in, so we said screw it and continued running. At one point, we ran passed a small liquor store where they so graciously gave us water bottles. We passed UNLV as well.
‘Smaller Hispanic woman’ taunts victims minutes after shooting
Additionally, the eyewitness reported that she was running with her group alongside “Tropicana Avenue”  when a ‘dark-colored SUV’ slowed and a ‘smaller Hispanic woman’ emerged from the window to “taunt” her group.
“[She] leans out the window, and she yells something we couldn’t understand in a clearly taunting manner. It really freaked us out, because again, we didn’t know who we could and could not trust,” the eyewitness explained.
Could this ‘smaller Hispanic woman’ have been the same ‘short Hispanic lady’ reported by another eyewitness to have threatened concertgoers 30-45 minutes before the shooting started?
Eight days later Suchomel was found dead in bed by her grandmother who arrived at Schomer’s residence at 8:30 a.m.
According to an Oct. 9 report confirming Suchomel’s death, Suchomel “was taking medication for a pituitary tumor and feared to fall asleep at night after being heavily traumatized by the Oct. 1 massacre.
Suchomel’s death may be the reason that Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos is receiving 24/7 high-profile security protection.
Update: After the time of this article’s publishing Suchomel’s post is “no longer available.”
Please share this article with everyone you know."


In the days before the Khazarian take over of the West, an eyewitness like Suchomel would be treated as a highly respected and authoritative source for "first person testimony" about that "mass casualty event".  The fact that her words are now being slowly eradicated from the public discourse of what proof in and of itself of conspiracy.

I am saying here and now that I accept Suchomel's account of the event and believe there were multiple shooters.  Extrapolating from that, I believe the "usual suspects" i.e., the same perps as did the other false flags such as 9/11, Boston Marathon and Sandy Hoax were likely at work here.  

The fact that there is not being a proper forensic investigation (young people don't even know what I'm talking about here) of the event means not only that the Justice System in the United States is totally corrupted and meaningless but there is a huge criminal organization in total control of the United States.  

What can Americans do about this?  Perhaps it's too late for America...perhaps as Notherntruthseeker said yesterday and others have said as well...America. as we know it, needs to die.  Surely it cannot recover if events like this are allowed to occur over and over and over again.

Being solutions oriented, I can make the following suggestions:

Americans en masse refuse to pay taxes...the IRS cannot prosecute the entire country
Americans en masse turn off their TV's and only get information via the Internet
Americans en masse boycott the large corporations that fund the evil...such as the multi-media "entertainment" companies and Starbucks
Americans en masse refuse to vote, or, better yet...spoil their ballots

These are only a few PRIVATE activities that Americans can do....without bringing on the Stormtroopers that are waiting in the wings...should American citizens take to the streets.

I am sorry folks, for those of you who look forward to my usual pot pourri of themes for my CawRANT...but these times are end times.

Do Something

"Do Something" by the Eagles
I've been walkin' through the fields
And on the streets of town
Trying to make sense of what you left me
Everything that I believed in
Has been turned upside down
And now it seems the whole wide world's gone crazy

But when I feel like giving up
And I'm ready to walk away
In the stillness, I can hear
A voice inside me say

Do something
Do something
It's too late for saving face
Don't just stand there takin' up space
Why don't you do something?
Do something
It's not over
No, it's never too late

You were always on my side
Love was all we had
Now I sit and watch our love unraveling
I pick up the morning paper
All the news is bad
How did we get on this road we're traveling?

But when I feel like giving up
And there's nowhere left to go
That's the time I dig down deep
The only thing I know

Do something
Do something
Don't leave it up for someone else
Don't feel sorry for yourself
Why don't you do something?
Do something
It's not over
No, it's never too late

Run away
You can't run away
For your honor
For your pride
You'll sleep better
Knowin' you tried

To do something
Do something
It's too easy not to care
You're not ready for the rockin' chair
Get up and do something
Do something
Don't wait too long
Even if it's wrong
You've got to do something
Do something
It's not over
No, it's never too late

But, to end on a positive note as I usually like to do, here is a link about birds...

Weird Bird Names

....specifically, some interesting names that humans have given to birds.

That's for this CawRANT Events folks...get out there and "Do Something".  Bye for now until next time.

Never argue about Politics or Religion....or both

9/11 Researcher Christopher Bollyn
embarrasses Jewish questioner
during Q & A

This morning's alternative news blogroll (to the right on this page) contains two "Must see" articles about why you should never get into an argument with a Zionist.  The first is the above video from one of my "favourites".  Interestingly, this link has now disappeared entirely from the blogrolls, which often happens when the link is a bit too "truthy".  Luckily, I did copy the link before that happened.  I recommend all readers view this video in its entirety...because it's only towards the end that the Jewish questioner finally breaks down in frustration at having all the facts thrown at him and admits why the Jews want to control the Middle East and have fomented US wars to do so.

The second is the post about the Las Vegas false flag written by John Kaminski which Northerntruthseeker has printed in its entirety on his blog.  Particularly this statement by Kaminski:

"...The real problem for the Jews is that you can’t argue with them. They are immune to logic, which makes their future very problematical when everybody finds out what they have done to sabotage the health and happiness of everything that lives...."

Watch the video above for visual proof of the above statement by Kaminski.  Bollyn (and the cameraman off camera at the back of the room) try to reason with the Jewish questioner.  They keep running into total absence of logic.  The Questioner seems to have been brainwashed with all the buzz words and talking points of the M$M.  He starts off by lecturing Bollyn with the shopworn "definition" of a conspiracy theorist..."One who starts off with a conclusion and then dismisses anything that contravenes that conclusion to end up with a (conspiracy) theory."  Bollyn counters by asking the Jewish questioner "what facts have I omitted?  Name just one".  The questioner quickly moves away from that argument and does not present one fact.

Rather, he moves on to the ludicrous statement that "Bush started the war on Iraq because Saddam threatened his father".  This is a 5 year old's comic book (Superman and Batman) view of geopolitics.  Bollyn and the off screen cameraman keep drilling down to force the questioner to provide proof or theory to back up his ridiculous the Jews in the WTC didn't get a warning so, out of 400 Jews working in the WTC, only four (according to Netanyahu) were killed in the atrocity.  The cameraman provides video proof that several prominent New York Jews, including former Senator, Al Franken who had offices in the WTC admitted they were warned.

The topic switches to the Middle East and the question of why the United States has been forced to go to war for Israeli interests.  This is where it gets interesting....the offscreen cameraman keeps drilling down on the Jewish questioner's responses....Why is Israel so disliked in the middle east that it has to "defend itself" from all its neighbours?  Finally the truth is presented (by the cameraman):  "Because of what has happened to the Palestinians (and by extrapolation is threatened to all Arabs living on land that Jews covet)."

The questioner, to his credit, finally answers the question of why Israel wants to destroy Syria...He asks:  "Have you ever walked the Golan Heights?  Have you ever stood on top and seen the land spread out before you?  The Golan Heights is prime land for anyone to shoot down at Israel."  So, in other words...any land in the middle east that is within shooting distance of Israel is fair game for Jewish takeover.  Is that logical?????

Bollyn points out that the Golan Heights are fertile and priceless oil fields as well as being geostrategically important.  He also points out that Israel's occupation of those lands has never been accepted by the world community...BUT... that if Syria were destroyed...the lands would, of course, automatically and by default fall into Israeli hands.  So, it is all about the land after all....the debate finally drilled down to the ultimate nugget of truth.

At this point, the debate ended as the questioner and his wife got up and left the room.  The video cuts out but then takes up again as the cameraman briefly re-engaged with the couple in the hallway.  The wife, who had up until then been silent, told the cameraman that she was not going to engage with him anymore because "our people have been killed for this".  Yes, the victim card...the last card to be played in any debate with Jewish ziofascists.  Not the Palestianians who have died and/or been existing for 60 years on the biggest outdoor concentration camp the world has ever seen, not the Iraqis, Syrians, Afghanis, Libyans, Yemenis etc., etc.,...but "our people".

Like Kaminski says:  

".... you can’t argue with them. They are immune to logic..."

The United States is being Blackmailed by Israel and Nobody knows what's in the Envelope

Every time I read a report like the one below by Moon of Alabama, I think: "Am I the only one in the world that sees what's going on here?"  This is a classic case of blackmail and/or extortion.  It is obvious that Trump has "decertified" the Iran deal made by Obama on the blackmail orders of Israel.  It is Israel that wants Iran removed from their struggle to implement their Yinon Plan Wet Dream for the Middle East.  It is Iran that has become the main obstacle in their path.  They want Iran isolated and then destroyed, balkanized like all the other Arab countries that exist between the Nile and Euphrates Rivers...and beyond because they are insane fanatics and will never be satisfied.

The only question that remains is...what information/evidence does Israel have against the United States that is so powerful that it forces the United States to act against its own best interests?  
Please read the excellent update from Moon of Alabama and I will have final thoughts in comments to follow:

"Iran - Trump Has No Strategy, Only Aims And No Way To Achieve Them

Trump hates the international nuclear deal with Iran.  The agreement put temporary restriction of Iran's nuclear program and opened it up to deeper inspections. The other sides of the deal committed to lifting sanctions and to further economic cooperation. Trump wants to get rid of the deal; but he is unwilling to pay the political price.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was negotiated and signed by the five permanent UN Security Council members (U.S., Ch, Ru, UK, F), Germany, the EU and Iran. If the U.S. defaults on the deal it will be in a lone position. The diplomatic isolation would limit its abilities to use its influence on other issues.
Trump has little knowledge of Iran, the nuclear deal, the Middle East or anything else. What he knows comes from Fox News and from Netanyahoo and other Zionist whisperers who get to his ear. All he heard is that the deal with Iran is bad. Therefore, he concluded, it must end.
The White House handed a paper to the media which is supposed to describe President Donald J. Trump's New Strategy on Iran. But there is no strategy in that paper. It list a number of aims the Trump wants to achieve. But it does no explain how he plans to do that. It is a wish list, not a program to follow.
The "Core Elements of the Presidents New Iran Strategy" are:
  • The United States new Iran strategy focuses on neutralizing the Government of Irans destabilizing influence and constraining its aggression, particularly its support for terrorism and militants.
  • We will revitalize our traditional alliances and regional partnerships as bulwarks against Iranian subversion and restore a more stable balance of power in the region.
  • We will work to deny the Iranian regime and especially the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) funding for its malign activities, and oppose IRGC activities that extort the wealth of the Iranian people.
  • We will counter threats to the United States and our allies from ballistic missiles and other asymmetric weapons.
  • We will rally the international community to condemn the IRGCs gross violations of human rights and its unjust detention of American citizens and other foreigners on specious charges.
  • Most importantly, we will deny the Iranian regime all paths to a nuclear weapon.
The list is full of factual mistakes:
  • Iran stabilized Iraq when the Islamic State was only days away from taking over Baghdad. Iran also helps to stabilize Syria and to defeat the Islamic State.
  • Ballistic missiles are not "asymmetric weapons". Iran's neighbors Pakistan and Saudi Arabia have such missiles. Iran's missiles are no threat to the United States.
  • The IRGC is the equivalent of the U.S. special forces. It is funded by the state. It does not "extort the wealth of the Iranian people". (The IRGC's pension funds (bonyads) hold significant industrial assets. But they are different entities.)
  • The IRGC does not detain American citizens.
  • Iran has repeatedly declared that it rejects all nuclear weapons out of religious reasons. It signed several international agreements which prohibit and prevent it from seeking such weapons.
The White House list of aims, "the strategy", is followed by "background" information on Iran and its alleged behavior.  Some White House intern must have copied it from a neoconservative version of Wikipedia. It is a conglomeration of general talking points which lack a factual basis.
When the JCOPA deal was closed, Congress legislated that the White House must certify every 90 days that Iran sticks to the deal. Trump will now stop to certify Iran's compliance even as everyone, including the White House, acknowledges that Iran is fulfilling all its parts. The White House claims that non-certification is not a breach of the agreement. The issue now falls back to Congress which might re-introduce the sanctions on Iran which the agreement had lifted. If it does that Trump will say that it is responsible for all consequences.
It is not clear if or what Congress will do. Senators Corker and Cotton are pushing for legislation that amounts to an unilateral change of the nuclear deal. It would introduce new sanctions if Iran does not accept their demands. Trump seems to support that.
But it is not going to work. It is an unilateral breach of the contract and no other country involved in deal will support it. Trump may introduce new economic sanctions on Iran but why would Iran care? Unless all other countries follow Trump's lead, it can simply buy and sell elsewhere.
The EU countries were again craven and offered to push against Iran's ballistic missiles if Trump does not completely break the JCPOA deal. This was utterly stupid negotiation behavior. Why offer concessions to Trump even before he makes a self defeating move? Still - they will not support breaking the deal.
Iran will not give up to its rights and it will not disarm. Obama pushed sanctions onto sanctions to make Iran scream. But the country did not fold. Each new U.S. sanction step was responded to with an expansion of Iran's nuclear program. In the end Obama had to offer talks to Iran to get out of the hole he had dug himself.
Now Trump is saying that stopping Iran from getting nukes is the priority. And that Obama was wrong to focus on it. The result is a bungled policy which will have either catastrophic, or no consequences at all."

All I can say is, it must be something truly terrible that the United States has remained silent about all these decades and has allowed itself to become bankrupt and destroyed on the world stage rather than go public about the blackmail.  If the United States would reveal that it is being blackmailed, then at least the blackmail would stop...and according to traditional justice...the police/justice system would become involved and the blackmailer would end up in a worse position than the victim.

But, because part of the price of the blackmail has been to undermine international law, it is harder for the United States to believe that it (justice) will kick in once the government has gone public with the blackmail.  For a moment here, let's speculate what the "terrible secret" is.  Is it about 9/11 being an "inside job" run by the Mossad?  Everybody (with two brain cells) already knows that.  Is it that the entire so-called NASA space program has been a tissue of lies since the l960's?  That, too, is becoming increasingly transparent.  Is it because all the so-called security agencies CIA/FBI/NSA/FEEMA are treasonous rats' nests of organized crime?  We already know it.

No.  It must be something else.  Something so dastardly the average human cannot even imagine or convert it into mere words. Something Satanic.  Whatever it is blatantly clear that Israel has the United States by the balls and it's gripping them so tightly that the squealing Trump has agreed to pay the blackmail...and break the only agreement the United States has made in decades.  Thus, the US will prove to the world that it is, as the Russians like to say..."not contract capable" or, as is referred to in Western jurisprudence..."non compos mentis". 

Help me Putin! - 'Betrayed' mercenary and former US Marine held captive by Kurdish forces

Former US Marine, and current war criminal
Kevin Howard, aka Kevin Harlly

Sometimes even geopolitical bloggers need a good laugh.  Our humoUr of choice, of course, is black humoUr.  I had a real belly laugh, along with my morning coffee, yesterday when I read this humoUrous piece written by one of my favourite geopolitical analysts, Joaquin Flores.  Please read the following report from Fort Russ News in its entirety and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

Help me Putin! - 'Betrayed' mercenary and former US Marine held captive by Kurdish forces
October 12th, 2017 - Fort Russ News - 
- Joaquin Flores -

Former US Marine, and current war criminal Kevin Howard, aka Kevin Harlly has been taken captive by his own SDF 'comrades'. Howard, or as he is known on the ground and in social media as 'Kane Harlly', has been working illegally as a mercenary for the US backed Kurdish YPG separatists and the MFS (Syriac Military Council) and their subsequent rebrand as the so-called SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces). As a result of certain factors, he has been taken captive by his own SDF 'comrades in arms'.

'Harlly' has attempted to make a name for himself as a personality in the world of social networking, such as Facebook, fascinated with his own tattoos, dubbing himself the 'illustrated man', Harlly wanted to be seen as a 'soldier of fortune' fighting against ISIS terrorists and defending Kurdish and Syriac villages, in the image of the lone-wolf 'bad-ass' replete with all the bravado borrowed from the US's own military fiction film lore.

But the business of war and the criminal interventions of the US and Harlly, tells a different story. Now referring to his MFS commanders as his 'bosses', once things stopped going the US's and Harlly's way, the mercenary nature of his work is revealed, and no longer does he offer the pretense of a principled fighter, but is instead suddenly ensnared in an unfortunate dispute with his 'employers'
Everything was fine so long as he was involved in a semi-virtual conflict, where the ultimate decision makers on both the ISIS/FSA and SDF/MFS/YPG sides were actually connected to the same NATO managed command structure. The US/NATO allied command structure would order an ISIS 'retreat' once the legitimate, legal, constitutional forces of the Syrian Arab Army were frustrated, and the sock-puppet forces of the SDF, et al, could be called in to legitimize the occupation and partition of Syria along ethnic grounds, stoking inter-ethnic rivalries in a bid to create a failed state. 

At the same time, the looming defeat created real-world divisions among the US backed coalition, bringing Saudi backed and Turkish backed forces into actual conflict. It can be difficult at times to discern which skirmishes reflect these actual divisions, symptomatic of actual logistical and political defeats, from the earlier 'stage managed' moves which meant to create the public illusion of various forces fighting independently against the SAA. But as reality itself gets called into question within the context of netcentric and fourth generation warfare, even field commanders are unlikely to know which side they are actually on within the greater context of geostrategy and ever-shifting ad hoc alliances. 

Several factors changed along the way for Harlly. In July of this year, Trump, in his ongoing tug-o-war with the US's deep state (parts of the MIC, NSA, CIA, etc.) announced an end to the CIA program of financing of the SDF, which is how Harlly's payroll was previously made possible. At the same time, Russian social media and on-the-ground work has made some headway in trying to flip or redirect the Kurdish efforts - we see this evidenced whenever semi-official Russian media and analysts entertain the question of even greater Kurdish autonomy within a Ba'ath party led Syria. The US meanwhile had also previously worked to flip or redirect the Syriac (ethnic Assyrians) who by and large support the present Syrian government and the Russian effort, as evidenced by the creation of the MFS (Syriac Military Council). 

This left Harlly in a precarious situation. 

No longer would he be involved in semi-staged fights, now the SDF needs to directly take on the Syrian Arab Army and the Russian Army in order to preserve its gains - from the above screen-shot: 

"Guy with guns came into my room, handed me a broken sniper rifle and told me I can either go to der ezzor and fight the Syrian regime and Russian army or go to prison, I said what about going home?' Nothing. Now I'm in prison"

Why doesn't he want to directly confront the SAA and Russian Army? The Americans are in a process of conceding its defeat in Syria, a process which began as soon as the Russians were invited by the constitutional government of Syria, headed by Assad. Legitimate Syriac and Kurdish efforts against ISIS can only likely be carried forward with the help of  the SAA and Russian Army itself. 

So the formerly US sponsored leadership of the SDF (et al) have been left to hang: they are in between a rock and a hard place, and are forced to carry on the fight in a logistically impossible direction. Harlly wants to make his income and 'look cool' doing it, but obviously doesn't have a real dog in this race - this is not a conflict any American mercenary actually wants to die in, and understandably so. And this is an historic dilemma that arises throughout the history and written discourses on the use of mercenaries, universally. 

Russian and American 'volunteers' in the Syrian conflict often have met, know each other, have shared flights in and out of Syria from Turkey, and we would assume have maintained some level of personal and professional contact, even if 'under the radar'.  

The Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê (PKK), whose colors and patches Harlly was nominally fighting under, with its military wing Hêzên Parastina Gel (HPG), had been operating from 1978 through 1999 from Syria, and afterwards from the Qandil-Mountains in northern Iraq, in the PUK-part of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of Iraq. 

The Barzanis (Kurdistan Democratic Party) and the PKK profoundly hate each other. The Yekîneyên Parastina Gel (YPG) is the military arm of the Partiya Yekîtiya Demokrat (PYD), the Syrian affiliate of the PKK. Most of the YPG commanders and fighters are Qandil-Kurds, i.e. PKK. 

What Howard, aka 'Harlly' is doing is sending a message to Russia and the SAA - ''I don't want to fight you, help me get out of this mess!'' As his American paymasters have left him high and dry - will the Russians help bail him out?

Kevin Howard in better times
posing as tough fighter

lol, So what happened here, folks, is that this guy went off to play a mercenary fighting the staged battles that were set up by the USrael/NATO forces to justify their presence in Syria.  Mock "virtual" battles were reported to have taken place between the various acronym factions as the USrael terrorists leapfrogged their way down the road towards Damascus. 

But something happened along the road to Damascus (just like St. Paul...there was a sea change) that turned "virtual" warriors like Howard into "real" combatants literally overnight.  USrael started to lose the war in Syria...due to the intervention of the Russians.  That's when USrael abandoned their pawns on the chessboard, like little Kevin shown in the above photo.  Suddenly, as victory evaporated like a mirage on the did the reliable[taxpayer funded] paycheque from back home. 

One morning, Kevin was handed a broken rifle and told to go out there and "git shootin".  Rather than become cannon fodder...the mercenary has chosen to go to SDF prison and is now being held by his former SDF comrades in arms--the US backed Kurdish YPG separatists and the MFS (Syriac Military Council) and their subsequent rebrand as the so-called SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces).

According to Joaquin Flores, Kevin sees his only recourse and salvation is to call out to Putin to save him!  I don't know about you, but I find that funny.  It's kind of like a guy playing violent, war video games in his mama's basement suddenly finds himself on a real battlefield dressed in his pajamas.
