CONFIRMED: Suicide bomber kills dozens in Britain

The mainstream media’s coverage of the event has been appalling at many levels.




Last night, a deadly and tragic terrorist attack claimed the lives of 22 people, many who were very young, at Britain’s Manchester Arena. Over 59 are currently reported injured. These numbers may yet rise.

The attack was almost certainly ISIS inspired as it had all the hallmarks of such an attack. For those mourning the dead, whether it was a direct ‘order’ given from Raqqa or more likely a crazed ISIS inspired fanatic with a home-made explosive, this devilish detail will matter little.

Police say that the attack was carried out by a lone suicide bomber. 

The timing of the event, weeks before a British Parliamentary election, is a further sign that the attack was perpetrated by someone sympathetic to an ISIS or al-Qaeda style Salafist/Wahhabist group, as such groups often seek to disrupt civic order before such events.

But the most worrying thing of all is that even as of 08.20 Moscow time, much of the western MSM had not even used the word ‘terrorism’.

On the BBC website report of the incident, the word terrorism was used only once (as of 08.20 Moscow time) and this was in the context of quoting an ‘anti-terrorism’ official.

What’s worse is that even as it became clear that there were multiple deaths and scores of injuries from the attack, the mainstream media were still peddling a series of ludicrous theories as to the nature of the explosion.

By far the most ludicrous was the theory that the blast was from a ‘blown-speaker’.

Just whose intelligence are they insulting? At the very worst a blown-speaker would have resulted in ears ringing and a possible headache for those in the near vicinity to the speaker and this is the worst case scenario.

An equally ludicrous theory peddled by the MSM was that ‘a balloon had popped’. How many people have every been severely injured or killed during a ‘severe balloon incident’?

Other MSM sources were even more odd in their response,

The fact is that such carnage could only be caused by terrorism or a severe structural malfunction and given that the building in question is modern and has had no previous such issues, that rather narrows it done, especially according to real anti-terrorist experts who suspected a suicide bomb attack.

Furthermore, this confirmed attack means that we’re living in the ludicrous situation wherein it is now easier to sneak a bomb into a large arena that it is to attempt and sneak in a large pizza, purchased outside of the venue.

Bag checks, pat-downs and even full body scans are now common in most large arenas. If indeed such security measures were employed last night, a lot will have to be answered for, including the possibility of an attack conducted with the assistance of private security personnel who in countries like Britain have no where near the qualifications of  even a junior police officer.

Of course, this kind of terrorism is easy to condemn. It is more difficult, even now, for many to realise the dangers of the hypocrisy implicit in governments like that of Britain, supporting terrorist groups in Syria (including NSA and various al-Qaeda affiliates and off-shoots) while fearing their actions on the domestic front.

Furthermore, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned that such events are not only possible but probable when, one supports terrorism in the Middle East while fearing it at home. He also warned that accepting ‘refugees’ at face value will almost certainly expose western countries to terrorism from individuals battle hardened in the terrorist assault on the secular government of the Syrian Arab Republic.

If western governments haven’t listened before, they will almost certainly not listen now. If mainstream media are so reticent to even say the word ‘terrorism’ when hardly any other logical explanation is possible, it says a lot about the un-conscious shame that the establishment water carriers harbour.

Furthermore, if the event was a Salafist attack on Syrians in Syria, the MSM would have likely called it a military operation by a ‘moderate rebel’, rather than what it is: a violent terrorist attack.

Finally, it is beyond doubt that this terrorist attack had nothing to do with Iran nor with Syria. It almost certainly had something to do with the forces that Iran and Syria are on the battle field fighting. This attack is a product of the harsh realities stemming from failed domestic policies and manifestly wrong foreign policies

Putin, Trump meet in Helsinki for first bilateral summit

The Helsinki summit is the first ever full-fledged meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. Their previous encounters were brief talks on the sidelines of the G20 and APEC summits in 2017.

Vladimir Rodzianko



Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump are meeting in the Finnish capital of Helsinki for their first bilateral one-on-one meeting.

Trump arrived in the Finland capital a day early, while the jet of Putin, who wrapped up his nation’s hosting of the World Cup Sunday, touched down around 1 p.m. local time and the Russian president’s motorcade whisked him straight to the palace where the two world leaders are meeting.

Trump signed an August 2017 law imposing additional sanctions on Russia. The law bars Trump from easing many sanctions without Congress’ approval, but he can offer some relief without a nod from Congress.

Almost 700 Russian people and companies are under U.S. sanctions. Individuals face limits on their travel and freezes on at least some of their assets, while some top Russian state banks and companies, including oil and gas giants, are effectively barred from getting financing through U.S. banks and markets.

The agenda of the summit hasn’t been officially announced yet, though, the presidents are expected to discuss global crises, such as the Syrian conflict and Ukraine, as well as bilateral relations.

Stay tuned for updates…

“Foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails (Video)

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx): Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails was hacked by foreign actor, and it was not Russia.

Alex Christoforou



A stunning revelation that hardly anyone in the mainstream media is covering.

Fox News gave Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) the opportunity to explain what was going on during his questioning of Peter Strzok, when the the Texas Congressman stated that a “foreign entity, NOT RUSSIA” hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Aside from this segment on Fox News, this story is not getting any coverage, and we know why. It destroys the entire ‘Russia hacked Hillary’ narrative.

Gohmert states that this evidence is irrefutable and shows that a foreign actor, not connected to Russia in any way, intercepted and distributed Hillary Clinton’s cache of 30,000 emails.

As we sift through the ashes of Thursday’s dumpster-fire Congressional hearing with still employed FBI agent Peter Strzok, Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller plucked out a key exchange between Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx) and Strzok which revealed a yet-unknown bombshell about the Clinton email case.

Nearly all of Hillary Clinton’s emails on her homebrew server went to a foreign entity that isn’t Russia. When this was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), IG Chuck McCullough sent his investigator Frank Ruckner and an attorney to notify Strzok along with three other people about the “anomaly.”

Four separate attempts were also made to notify DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to brief him on the massive security breach, however Horowitz “never returned the call.” Recall that Horowitz concluded last month that despite Strzok’s extreme bias towards Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump – none of it translated to Strzok’s work at the FBI.

In other words; Strzok, while investigating Clinton’s email server, completely ignored the fact that most of Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity – while IG Horowitz simply didn’t want to know about it.

Daily Caller reports…

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

Gohmert continued..

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia.”

Strzok admitted to meeting with Ruckner but said he couldn’t remember the “specific” content of their discussion.

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

According to Zerohedge “Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said – and Horowitz wouldn’t return the call.

And while Peter Strzok couldn’t remember the specifics of his meeting with the IG about the giant “foreign entity” bombshell, he texted this to his mistress Lisa Page when the IG discovered the “(C)” classification on several of Clinton’s emails – something the FBI overlooked:

“Holy cow … if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”

In November of 2017, IG McCullough – an Obama appointee – revealed to Fox News that he received pushback when he tried to tell former DNI James Clapper about the foreign entity which had Clinton’s emails and other anomalies.

Instead of being embraced for trying to expose an illegal act, seven senators including Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) wrote a letter accusing him of politicizing the issue.

“It’s absolutely irrelevant whether something is marked classified, it is the character of the information,” he said. Fox News reports…

McCullough said that from that point forward, he received only criticism and an “adversarial posture” from Congress when he tried to rectify the situation.

“I expected to be embraced and protected,” he said, adding that a Hill staffer “chided” him for failing to consider the “political consequences” of the information he was blowing the whistle on.

Donald Trump plays good cop and bad cop with a weak Theresa May (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 55.

Alex Christoforou



US President Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK was momentous, not for its substance, but rather for its sheer entertainment value.

Trump started his trip to the United Kingdom blasting Theresa May for her inability to negotiate a proper Brexit deal with the EU.  Trump ended his visit holding hands with the UK Prime Minister during a press conference where the most ‘special relationship’ between the two allies was once again reaffirmed.

Protests saw giant Trump “baby balloons” fly over London’s city center, as Trump played was his own good cop and bad cop to the UK PM, outside London at the Chequers…often times leaving May’s head spinning.

Even as Trump has left London, he remains front and center in the mind of Theresa May, who has now stated that Trump advised her to “sue” the European Union to resolve the tense negotiations over Brexit.

Trump had mentioned to reporters on Friday at a joint press conference with Theresa May that he had given the British leader a suggestion that she found too “brutal.”

Asked Sunday on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show what that suggestion was, May: “He told me I should sue the EU. Not go into negotiation, sue them.” May added…

“What the president also said at that press conference was `Don’t walk away. Don’t walk away from the negotiations. Then you’re stuck.”‘

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris summarize what was a state visit like no other, as Trump trolled the UK PM from beginning to end, and left London knowing that he got the better of a weakened British Prime Minister, who may not survive in office past next week.

It wasn’t exactly clear what Trump meant. The revelation came after explosive and undiplomatic remarks Trump made this week about May’s leadership — especially her handling of the Brexit negotiations — as he made his first official visit to Britain.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper published Thursday — just as May was hosting Trump at a lavish black-tie dinner — Trump said the British leader’s approach likely “killed” chances of a free-trade deal with the United States. He said he had told May how to conduct Brexit negotiations, “but she didn’t listen to me.”

He also praised May’s rival, Boris Johnson, who quit last week as foreign secretary to protest May’s Brexit plans. Trump claimed Johnson would make a “great prime minister.”

The comments shocked many in Britain — even May’s opponents — and threatened to undermine May’s already fragile hold on power. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the EU and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain’s biggest trading partner.
