Second hour: Investigative reports: tribute to 911 Truth anti-war activist and researcher Fran Scott who died on Saturday aged 58. Syria: Vanessa Beeley speaking in Bristol at the Arc bar on Broad Street tonight. The White Helmets – run by James le Mesurier – a propaganda outfit for the West; rebel groups fighting each other; Israel’s Yinon Plan to Balkanise the Middle East; Benjamin Netanyahu’s 1980s book ‘Terrorism: How The West Can Win’, covertly using terrorists as an extension of the state military. Andrew Parker, ‘Nosey Parker’, UK’s MI5 spy chief who was promoted after his role in failing to stop the 7/7 attacks, says there is a growing threat of Russian cyber attacks to Britain. He is copying Bilderberg, NATO secretary general Jan Stoltenberg and Hillary Clinton which suggests the criminal Elite are planning cyber-attacks on us, which they will blame on Russia – Pilger interviewing Assange on RT saying leaks did not come from Russia. When Article 50 is started in March, Alasdair Campbell and Vince Cable, close to the criminal bankster elite, say Britain will be punished with economic warfare heavy weapons in March 2017 by the criminal elite banksters. Economic crash and Deutsche Bank. Former FBI translator turned whistleblower Sybel Edmonds and ‘Gladio B’ – coming UK terrorist attacks by NATO and fascists to be blamed on migrants. The research of Fran Scott, peace activist and researcher, who died of cancer this week aged just 58, after being let down by the NHS doctors: For the 15th anniversary of 9/11 in September 2016 Fran discusses the 9/11 Commission and the 28 pages that were held back, and then released but with 97 redactions – links to Saudi Arabia and Saudi Prince Bandar; Fran reported British Army ‘groomed’ two of the suspected 7/7 bombers Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer attended the Iqra Bookshop in Leeds where ex- British Special Forces SBS, Martin McDaid, trained them – intelligence services infiltrating or controlling Jihadis; Fran’s talk in May this year about the 9/11 anthrax attacks – liberal Senators were targeted who were against the Patriot Act but it was blamed on Al Qaeda and Iraq – then the blame landed on Dr. Bruce Ivans in Maryland who ‘committed suicide’ and the case was closed – however the anthrax code was traced back to two CIA laboratories – what is the deep state and does it exist? Privatisation of DERA (Defence Evaluation and Research Establishment) in 2003 to QinetiQ, Carlyle Group and the Bush crime family. War criminals at RAF Molesworth are doing the targeting for illegal assassination drones – US personnel ‘targeting killer drones from Britain’ – Leo Strauss and the policy of ‘Order from Chaos’.
Extraordinary circumstances of Fran’s death: This week we’re reminded just how deep into Europe and America’s cultural life the Warfare State has penetrated with the untimely death of one of the Western world’s greatest unrecognised anti- war researchers and activists – co-founder of the London based Reinvestigate 911 website and campaign Fran Scott. Hackney-based Fran was only 58 when she died last Saturday of stomach and liver cancer, only two weeks after being diagnosed. She was terribly let down by the overstretched East London Health Service. One of the ambulance paramedics on one of her attempts to get diagnosed and treated – told her East London hospitals just can’t cope – the Health Service is now a postcode lottery. Fran hadn’t been in the greatest of health, having hypoglycemia on and off for over a decade. But it wasn’t as if Fran hadn’t been bringing her more recent digestive problems to her GPs attention but she kept being told she had indigestion – and was given pain killers and constipation medicine. Doctors now say she’d had an aggressive form of stomach cancer since early this year. On 29th August she was taken more seriously ill – and the paramedic told her to go straight to A&E. From that day at the end of August Fran wasn’t able to eat anything. She went twice – including by ambulance – to Accident and Emergency at London’s Homerton Hospital – but she was given more constipation medicine – which she couldn’t eat – and sent home. She was finally admitted to Homerton for tests after she hadn’t been able to eat for over five weeks. She died just three weeks later. Anyway Fran’s Memorial will take place in Hackney on Tuesday 15th November – and despite her many brilliant investigations into the crimes behind the war on terror not a single mainstream media outlet ever asked her for an interview or used her brilliant work exposing the crimes and the criminals driving the war machine.
