Use of the word 'probably', 'Putin probably behind death of Alexander Litvinenko', 'maker of Novichok probably a state actor' – 3,500 'communications professionals' within government, press officers and advisers, spin doctors – Novichok 'of a type' developed by Russia – similar to ambiguous language used by UK government in supposed IRA bomb in Gibraltar – Porton Down saying 'probably' a state actor; BBC Question Time – Jo Johnson's phone going off in breast pocket, Syria briefing coming out '...found something on the weapon in Syria, and its also decided that we must tell the media....' –was this a briefing? Micro Invisible Spy Earpiece Wireless Headset Covert 305 Hidden Earphone? BBC – told BIG WMD LIE in run-up to Iraq war – Greg Dyke and Andrew Gilligan sacked by BBC for telling the truth – investigative programmes not so good now; French President Macron (former Rothschild employee) Demands State Control Over Mosques' Bank Accounts Amid 'Fight Against Islamism'. Security services and Thompson Reuters check list of 'extremists'; VICE News Reveals World-Check database, the Terrorism Blacklist Secretly Wielding Power Over the Lives of Millions. where do World-Check database - Thompson Reuters get their income? From what interests? What are their priorities? Which hotel did Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg sleep in last night, who was he messaging last week? Would he be happy to share those details with the committee, and the world? US government committees grill Facebook – selling users' data to make money; GCHQ: UK Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) churning out fake social media and news at taxpayers expense; The Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group is a unit of GCHQ, the British signals intelligence organisation, involved in cyber-attacks and online propaganda operations; Chemist Dr Chris Busby discussing Skripal case being a false flag operation – petro-dollar empire – Novichok could be made by good chemists and at organophosphate pesticide plants; BBC QT – Yemen – we sell weapons to Saudi Arabia; Trump – US spent $7 trillion on Middle East – so we're pulling US troops out of Syria (2nd April 2018); Syrian Girl on Duma chemical attack – a different narrative – army of Islam (allied with West) behind attack; Jaish Al Islam - Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) was formerly known as Liwa al-Islam (Brigade of Islam) and is a coalition of Salafist Islamist militant groups based in the Douma and Eastern Ghouta regions of the Syrian capital of Damascus. Douma was the site of an alleged chemical weapons attack where up to 43 people were killed and it has been blamed on the Syrian regime. But according to reports from news outlet Kurdistan 24, the group admitted it used chemical weapons in a mainly Kurdish populated area in the city of Aleppo, northern Syria in April 2016. In an official statement, Jaish al-Islam said: “One of the field commanders in Aleppo used weapons that he was not authorised to use in these kinds of confrontations.” - White Helmets; Spinwatch: where do the 'experts' on TV come from? Bilderberg and other power structures; war with Russia? Anti-Russian hysteria.
