HOLLYWOOD COMES TO PARIS: A still from a video that purported to show the shooting of a policeman by the Kouachi brothers is fraught with holes and bears every hallmark of a movie set scene!
Estranged Illuminati family member blows whistle on false flag and names perpetrators of gory act. Does her tip bear up?
On January 14 2015, Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP), regarded by the US as the deadliest branch of the global Jihadist network, announced it was behind the Charlie Hedbo killings of January 7 in a 11-minute video posted on its Twitter account. The hit, so the leader of the Yemeni branch of AQAP gushed, had been in the making since 2011 at the orders of Al-Qaeda's overall leader Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's successor, and was arranged by the now deceased radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki (he was blown in a US drone strike in Yemen in September 2011). The killings were “in revenge for the prophet”, that is, Muhammad.
The AQAP assertion was a classic case of reaping where one did not sow. It was purely opportunistic, much like Osama bin Laden’s claim that it was Al Qaeda that had masterminded the spectacularly horrendous 9-11. The first to throw the lie back at AQAP was the CIA and its ilk. Two US counter-terrorism officials made it known to ABC News that there was no persuasive evidence that AQAP either coordinated the attack or anticipated it as signals intercept records of recent times had not come across any communication between any of the Kouachi brothers and known AQAP figures. Certainly, if AQAP was the architect of the Paris atrocity, why did they take a full week to own up to it when typically Al Qaeda takes less than 48 hours to bask in the “glory” of a particularly galvanising strike?
A case can be made that during the standoff with a police cordon, both Cherif Kouachi and Ahmed Coulibaly voluntarily admitted to having operated under the auspices of Jihadist groups in telephonic interviews with BFM TV, France’s most watched news network. But such a confession must be taken with a pinch of salt. Firstly, even CNN, which is affiliated to BFM TV, did categorically state that it could not vouch for the authenticity of the interviews. Secondly, the two terrorists could have been coached in advance as to exactly what to say in the event they were cornered. Thus AQAP’s belated announcement could have been prompted by the need to capitalise on the reported assertions of the terrorists and not on their factuality. In any case, Coulibaly and the Kouachi brothers belonged to two rival groups, ISIS and AQAP respectively. Why then did ISIS did not endorse Coulibaly’s involvement in the Paris shootings if he was indeed their man?
When all is said done, what emerges is that the shootings were not the work of Al Qaeda nor of ISIS but of a Third Force. Just what was this Third Force?
A ROTHSCHILD TIP On January 11 2015, Lasha Darkmoon, a renowned English-American essayist and critic of the Illuminati agenda, received an email from Ellie Katsnelson, who also goes by the name Madame Rothschild. Katsnelson is a German aristocrat of Rothschild parentage who fell out with her family when she discovered that the death of her mother in the Swiss Alps in 1989 was not an accident but a cleverly orchestrated sacrificial murder. Part of her email read as follows:
“I will say most emphatically, based on my private sources, for as you know, I am a resident of France and have many friends in high places in Paris and elsewhere: not only do I believe that the Paris circus was not done by the Muslims, I actually know for a certainty that it was not. Muslims had nothing – I repeat, nothing – whatever to do with the carnage that took place in Paris last week.
“A few young ladies whom I know and who are active in the Palestinian movement – with your own countryman, George Galloway, I believe – explained everything to me two days ago. This whole event was organised in Brussels. Even Ahmed Merabet, the first French policeman purportedly shot dead, is actually not a Muslim at all: his real name is Avigdor, and his brother’s name is Maloch, recently changed to Melek – all of them crypto-Jews in the service of Israeli intelligence, i.e., Mossad agents. Avigdor is in Buenos Aires right now, and will remain there for six years, a standard operating procedure with those deep in Israeli psyops. After this, he will resurface with a new identity, by which time of course the populace will have forgotten all about the Paris attacks.”
The cat is out of the bag folks. The Charlie Hebdo killings were a Mossad operation reportedly. The policeman who we saw being shot at point-blank range in the on-scene video recordings was simply acting movie-style. He was part of the whole charade, as were the shooters themselves. Katsnelson says such players are paid 666,000 euros or dollars depending on the country in which the event is staged.
“The amount may seem random and insignificant to you, but once you know how important numerology and signs are to the Kabalistic Jews, things begin to make sense,” Katsnelson continues. “Moreover, the number 6 features again, you will notice, as that is the number of years during which the commandos carrying out the operation are not allowed to resurface. They have to lie low for six years, living lives of impeccable respectability under their newly invented personas. When they finally emerge into the full light of day, it is never in the country where they performed their original theatrics.
“Thus Avigdor, the ‘hero’ of the Paris op, and all the rest of his accomplices in crime, will start a new life elsewhere: with a new identity, new papers, a new passport – even a nice new house provided. Everything else will be given to these operatives to enable them to make a fresh start in life, including a wife or partner who is also an undercover agent. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left to chance.” Does Madame Rothshilds’ revelations stand up to scrutiny?
SUPREMELY EFFICIENT KILLERS If there is one element about the Charlie Hebdo carnage that continue to stagger the mind, it was the professionalism with which it was carried out. There is no way in hell those Kalashnikova-wielding hoodlums could have been your typical, clumsy Jihadists trained at Torabora or some such godforsaken redoubt.
They appeared to be executing a well-coordinated plan in that late-morning raid, methodically seeking out and executing those targeted for death and even made a clean getaway. These guys were sharpshooters, trained to the hilt as both marksmen and snipers. They were groomed and drilled in a formal, First World military institutional setting. They exhibited the military proficiency of Team 6, the Navy Seals who killed Osama bin Laden on May 2 2011.
A Fox News military analyst, retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters, said, “It was evident immediately that this was a carefully planned, sophisticated operation by well-trained, well-armed veterans of Jihad. This was not a pick-up team. These butchers were methodical and efficient. They weren’t just terrorists: They were terrorist commandos.” Peters added: “They didn’t just go nuts and shoot wildly, as amateur Jihadists do.
They set out to kill specific people and never lost focus. They even stayed cool during the getaway phase.” Aki Peritz, a former CIA analyst, was quoted as saying that, “The attacks were very professional, well thought-out and well executed”. Stratfort, a well-known security analyst group, also said something to the effect that the attackers appeared to be well-trained from the way they handled the weapons, moved and shot.
It is also obvious that the killers were assisted by somebody who had inside information about the goings-on at Charlie Hebdo. They struck at the right time, a Wednesday, a day when all the freelance cartoonist were always around for a routine, weekly editorial meeting. That the attackers did not conduct this aspect of the espionage themselves is evidenced by the fact that they did not know the exact address of Charlie Hebdo: they had to ask for directions to the correct location from two maintenance workers they encountered at a wrong office before they hastened upstairs to do the deed. The killers were part of a syndicate that was far from ragtag ala ISIS or AQAP but belonged to an elite military-espionage apparatus that had agents in the ranks of the French Police itself.
FECKLESS AND DISSOLUTE BROTHERS Yet the daring and sophistication of the Charlie Hebdo killers simply does not square with the bland profile, reportedly, of the Kouachi brothers. The real Kouachi brothers come across as cowardly and simple-minded. We know a bit about them because they have had brushes with the law in the recent past, particularly Cherif, the younger of the two.
In January 2005, Cherif was arrested for being part of the Buttes Chaumont network (named for the park in northern Paris where they used to meet), a 7-man jihadist recruitment ring that smuggled fighters to swell the ranks of Iraq insurgents when US and British forces were having a field day bombing the country into virtual oblivion. Cherif, then aged 25, was captured on video whimpering pleas of innocence before reporters right in the court precincts.
These are his exact words: “The whole thing has been set up. We are just young kids from the suburbs, that is all. We get passionate, we talk like this, but there is nothing more, that's it. We did nothing wrong. There was no intention (from us), now they pretend things, but who cares. We will see and I hope that it will show evidence.” Cherif’s remonstration to the world at large was that he was set up, words that would never issue forth from the mouth of a revolutionary stalwart who was intent at even expending his life in the interests of the jihad.
In 2010, Cherif was again nabbed for "suspected involvement in plotting the escape of one of the masterminds of bombings and terrorist attacks in 1995 that killed eight people and injured more than 200". In either case, Cherif was neither a ring leader nor a protagonistic participant. His role was that of a mere facilitator, not a precision killing machine. Above all, he was chicken-hearted and this from his own mouth. In the 2008 case, he told the judge that he was relieved at being arrested. “The closer the departure (to Iraq) got, the more I wanted to turn back,” he stated matter-of-factly.
What both the 2008 and 2010 trials laid bare was the fact that Cherif was simply an also-ran in the greater scheme of whatever operations he was involved in and was more of a hedonist than a scrupulous devotee to the cause, let alone to Islam. He was far from religious, drank alcohol, smoked marijuana, was a fan of rap music, and spent more time chasing skirts than he did going to the mosque. Intellectually, he was the proverbial empty vessel: he only knew “the basics” on how to handle a Kalashnikova, inculcated to him not at a jihadist range but from a man he met at the mosque. It’s small wonder the only jobs he was good at were the menial type – delivering pizza and as a fishmonger in a supermarket latterly.
Such a mediocre, lacklustre profile does not remotely dovetail with the text-book prowess of the two ace killers who wreaked clinical havoc at Charlie Hebdo. Those two hooded guys were as different from the Kouachi brothers as black is different from white.
A STUDIO-SETTING SHOOTING Within hours of the Charlie Hebdo rampage, a video was posted on the Internet that showed one of the Kouachi brothers shoot dead at close range a hapless and pleading policeman with an AK 47 rifle. The policeman turned out to be 42-year-old Ahmed Merabet reportedly. The video was shot “on reflex” by Jordi Mir whilst he was alone in his apartment, so he said. The police never subjected him to questioning of any kind when in an ideal world, he should have been made to say much more than he let on.
The video has now famously come to be known as a hoax video on social media. A whole avalanche of reasons support this view but I will only discuss those that cut to the core of the matter so as not to bore you with forensic-type details.
The Policeman was shot twice within a ten-second interval, first in his leg and second at point blank range in his head. Yet we see no blood spatter; no spent cartridge; and no marks on the concrete. This is a 7.62 x 39 mm round, a close-range trajectile from an AK 47 assault rifle, and there is no discernible body movement that inevitably must have arisen from the energy absorption from the bullet. Whether the bullet went through the victim’s body or not, there should have been a huge blast out of the pavement but the pavement was as squeaky-clean as ever. Just where did the kinetic energy of the bullet go?
John Urwin, a former US Special Forces operative, put it rather bluntly that the video, along with others which surfaced in due course, was a studio job. “It's definitely fake: the AK 47 would take half his head away,” he sneers. “There’s a few things I don’t understand. The person taking the film doesn’t appear to be shocked or surprised. There are no sudden movements in the film when the guns are going off. And especially when someone is supposedly getting their head blown off.”
Another former Western service man had this to say: “The wound location of the first shot is indicated by the victims right hand – it clutches his upper right thigh on the outside of his hip bone. This wound, if real, would have had him screaming in horrific pain and it would have bled IMMEDIATELY. His pants, where shot, within seconds, would have turned dark with red blood soaking the fabric. The shot to the head is obviously a blank. You can see the air pressure blast wave knock the dust up off the sidewalk. If this was a real bullet you would see the same thing happen to the skin, skull and brain matter.â€¨This is a crisis actor who never got shot. There are no wounds, no blood, no tissue splatter, no recoil, no natural and immediate limpness which occurs when someone is shot in the brain with an AK47. If you haven’t been in combat and seen this firsthand to know that this is fake, I suggest you search for real terrorist killings in videos online that show what direct gun shots to the head and body really look like.”
It turns out we have precious more to say on the incident and we request that you make a date with us for the final instalment next week.
Botswana health officials have confirmed the new COVOD-19 variant, which was first found in India. The Ministry of Health and Wellness has through a press statement informed members of the public that a new COVID-19 variant (B.1.617), first discovered in India. The Indian variant was confirmed in Botswana on 13 May 2021.
According to Christopher Nyanga, spokesperson at the Ministry, this followed a case investigation within Greater Gaborone, involving people of Indian origin who arrived in the country on the 24th April 2021.
“As at 16 May 2021, the B. 1. 617 variant was confirmed in two (2) people. The clients are currently receiving medical care and remain stable with no life-threatening symptoms. The two (2) cases were part of 383 people (both Batswana and some Indian nationals) who were tested for COVID-19. From this number, 43 tested positive, with two (2) showing the B. 1. 617 variant as already alluded to. Contact tracing has been expanded in line with COVID-19 protocols. All contacts and confirmed cases have been evacuated to facility based quarantine and isolation respectively, for close monitoring,” Nyanga narrated.
The World Health Organization recently announced that the Indian Covid-19 variant was a global concern, with some data suggesting the variant has “increased transmissibility” compared with other strains.
Meanwhile in the wake of Botswana’s confirmation of the Indian variant, Nyanga reminded the public of the government intervention to control the introduction of new variants of public health concern into the country. He stated that all those who have travelled or transited through areas of high risk as previously communicated on 3rd May 2021 upon return shall immediately quarantine in a central area to be identified by the Ministry of Health and Wellness for a period not exceeding ten (10) days; Repeat Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test after seven (7) days of quarantine and be discharged as per the outcome of the results.
He said the requirements are complementary to the mandatory requirements of producing on arrival a negative PCR test not older than 72hrs from the time the sample was collected
“The public is advised to remain vigilant and minimize the spread of COVID-19 by following the already outlined preventative measures such as washing of hands with soap or use of a hand sanitizer, wearing of face masks, avoiding crowded places/social distancing and avoiding non-essential movement,” Nyanga said.
The India variant – officially called B.1.617.2 – is one of four mutated versions of coronavirus which have been designated as being “of concern” by transitional public health bodies, with others first being identified in Kent, South Africa and Brazil.
The lawyers representing former President Lt Gen Ian Khama, Ramalepa Attorneys have come forth dismissing a response letter penned down by Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) activist MacDonald Peloetletse after he was slapped with a P1.5 million lawsuit for defamation of their client.
Tebogo Tladi, an attorney at Ramalepa, said last week Thursday Peloetletse took to social media to publish a substantively false, wrongful and unlawful statement about Khama. MacDonald Peloetletse’s commentary which was posted on Gabz FM News page reads, “I am a former soldier. Everything former President SKI Khama said here is a LIE. In fact, soldiers suffered more under Khama than under his predecessors.
He actually stole money that the UN had paid to the soldiers who went for the operations and paid them less than a quarter of what was actually due to them. “Unhappy soldiers took the BDF to court and won, the BDF is still struggling to pay the debts! Khama can fool some people, but not all the people and not all the time.
“In fact many soldiers, serving, retired and those that resigned and were in the operations during Khama’s time get even more annoyed to such disrespectful statements by Ian Khama.” Khama’s lawyer says the impugned statement was published with the intention to injure his client (Khama) in his personality rights, good name and dignity, further indicating that the statement has damaged his good reputation.
“We have therefore been instructed by Client to demand, as we hereby do, that you publish on the same forum a retraction and a full and unconditional apology to Client within three days of receipt of this letter- and that you deliver such apology in a formal letter to the Office of the Former President, Dr Khama. In the event that you have not compiled with this demand by close of business on Monday 10th May 2021, our Client will assume that you have refused to comply with this demand.”
To top it all off, Khama demands that Peloetletse pay him P1.5 million in damages for defamation. “Furthermore, we hold instructions to demand as we hereby do, that you pay our Client damages for defamation in the sum of P1, 500,000.00 within seven days of receipt of this letter.” In the event that Peloetletse fails to pay the amount of damages demanded by Khama, Tladi says they will institute legal proceedings for the recovery of the aforesaid damages.
In his response letter addressed to Ramalepa Attorneys, Peloetletse said that he requests enlightenment and clarification that he be provided with proof that the allegations and comments which they attribute to him were indeed authored by him and that the platform which the comments were placed was not hacked.
“Please also advise if whether your clients has been endowed with a “special particular privilege status” that restricts the citizens of this country from commenting or responding to public statements made by your client in the course of political discourse especially when made on public forum and relate to matters of general public concern. (I trust that your brilliant legal mind is well informed with respect to the jurisprudence in such matters)”.
Peloetletse also said he would like to share with the attorneys a video which was posted on a public forum. “Please listen carefully to the conversations and discussion herein and advice if possibly such discussions form a reasonable basis for a justifiably rebuttal by any Motswana Citizen to the public pronouncements and defamatory statements made by your client about our government (bearing in mind of course a citizens constitutional right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression).’’
Consulted for further comment on the matter on Thursday after receiving Peloetletse’s response, Khama’s attorney Tebogo Tladi said the letter doesn’t hold any water. “The only way out for him is to prove the truth of the allegations on his comment or deny publication. He does not answer substantively to the defamation and does not respond to the demand of an apology or payment of damages.
So his letter really contains largely matters irrelevant to the substance of the letter of demand. His response in fact presents no legally cognizable defence at all- it would appear he responded without the benefit of legal advice, which would not be prudent for such an important case. So we will proceed to issue summons and wait to see what defences he will plead in court.’’
Botswana and Zambia this week celebrated the opening of a multi-million Dollar infrastructural project, the Kazungula Bridge, projected to contribute around P100 million annually for Botswana. This project comes after the signing of the 2012 Agreement between the two countries to construct a bridge that would ease movement of goods.
President Mokgweetsi Masisi said the Kazungula Bridge will open avenues for improved trade, job creation and economic diversification in both countries. Further, the Bridge will significantly accelerate Southern African Development Committee (SADC) regional integration agenda which Botswana and Zambia are vigorously pursuing.
“By growing our strategic partnerships through this project, we have improved the development and competitiveness of our economies to attract more private sector investment, thereby, supporting our efforts to create employment, especially for the burgeoning youth,” Masisi said at the opening ceremony in Kazungula on Monday.
The Kazungula Bridge comprises a road and rail bridge over the Zambezi River, directly linking Botswana and Zambia. It has One-Stop-Border Post facilities on both sides, which will enhance the operational efficiency at entry points, replicated on both sides of the boarder.
The Bridge was originally conceived as a critical link in the African North-South Corridor under the African Union’s New Partnership (NEPAD) for Africa’s Development programme. It has since evolved to encompass a multimodal transport plan under the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA).
The PIDA programme, which encompasses liberalisation of air travel, rail links, road, water and all other modes of transport has only one objective: to unite the States of Africa in order to foster trade on the continent
“Connectivity of our nations will in no small measure, promote people to people interactions and uplifts their standard of living. I am pleased to state that the completion of this project is a clear demonstration of our commitment to PIDA.”
The 260 million US Dollar Kazungula Bridge was commissioned by Zambian President, Edgar Lungu and President Masisi. President Lungu said the bridge was a monumental effort linking Zambia internally and externally to ease the movement of goods and services.
“I have held talks with my counterpart in Botswana that this project must run daily up to 22 hours as soon as possible and you the technocrats must not play ping-pong with us after making these public procurements,” Lungu said at the official opening in Kazungula.
For his part, DRC President Felix Tshisekedi said the project was tandem with the Africa Union (AU) goals and priority areas for Agenda 2063 which called for a prosperous Africa, based on inclusive growth and sustainable development.
The new Kazungula Bridge replaces the Kazungula Ferry, a pontoon ferry across the 400-metre-wide Zambezi River between Botswana and Zambia. It was one of the largest ferries in South-Central Africa, having a capacity of 70 tonnes.
In 2003 the ferry was the site of a disaster when a severely overloaded Zambian truck capsized one of the pontoons and 18 people drowned. The accident was blamed on the lack of weighbridges in Zambia to check the weight of trucks.
In August 2007, the governments of Zambia and Botswana announced a deal to construct a bridge at the site to replace the ferry. The existence of a short boundary of about 150 meters between Zambia and Botswana was apparently agreed to during various meetings involving Heads of State and officials from all four States in the 2006-2010 period.
The route for this new bridge crosses the boundary without entering Zimbabwe and Namibia. Zimbabwe already has a bridge into Zambia at Victoria Falls, 70KM from Kazungula. Namibia on the other hand has a bridge into Zambia at Katima Mulilo about 150KM upriver.
