“For the record, the French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” had enemies other than the so-called “Islamic radicals” we are being inundated with by the corporate media.
The Catholics and the fascist Opus Dei sect, not to mention international pedophiles, Christians, the Jews and the Illuminati/Freemasons….”
“… it has to do with the concentrated satirical potency of the cartoon as a form. Drawings are able to communicate an idea instantly, worldlessly and internationally. They can travel quickly, free of the sandbags of nuance. Napoleon once complained that the caricatures of James Gillray “did more than all the armies of Europe to bring me down,” writes Jeet Heer, a Canadian cultural historian, in a short essay on the power of cartoons. Some years later, King Louis Phillippe had Honoré Daumier, a cartoonist, thrown in jail, arguing that “a pamphlet is no more than a violation of opinion, a caricature amounts to an act of violence”.
To avoid it, to talk around it, amounts to misinforming the audience.
Moments ago, French Le Point revealed the nationality of the three Paris terrorists: via Bloomberg: PARIS ATTACKERS ARE FRENCH-ALGERIAN, LE POINT SAYS Le Metro added that two of the three men, aged 18, 32 and 34 were actually born in France. And finally, according to French sources, their names: Said Kouachi, Cherif Kouachi and Hamyd Mourad

“Suspects in Paris attack were on police radar for years”:
“A 2005 Pittsburgh Tribune Review report, citing Kouachi’s lawyer, said the would-be terrorist was not religious, drank alcohol, smoked marijuana, had premarital sex with his girlfriend and had a job delivering pizzas.”
I am somewhat encouraged by the number of comments around the internet that mention false flag.
“… Just curious if the Paris attack was a message to France’s government to get back in line?! ….”
[But the attack wasn’t against a government facility or personnel…]
“… Beyond all of the media’s ‘ISIS’ hyperbole, unquestionably, today’s attack has all the characteristic of a professional contract hit. Witnesses remarked on how the gunman were perfectly calm and spoke perfect native French, and commented on their ‘expert marksmanship’, hitting all targets with single shots, and not spraying bullets indiscriminately. Witnesses also described the gunman as ‘bulked-up’ from what appears to be body armour, and kevlar ‘bullet-proof’ protection underneath their over garments.
Another witness commented on the adroit, calm, European-style and professional demeanor of the gunman, stating, “At first I thought it was special forces.” This reinforces suspicions that today’s event had many signatures of another GLADIO-style attack carried out on European soil (by NATO intelligence), designed to effect a specific political or public opinion reaction within France.”
[What struck me when I watched the video for the second time was the fact that the fellow who got into the passenger-side door bent down to pick up something he’d dropped there.
Was he “policing” his own scene? ]
“MOSCOW, January 8 (Sputnik) — The youngest of the three suspects in the Wednesday terror attack at Charlie Hebdo magazine office in Paris, 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad turned himself in to police claiming he is innocent, French iTele TV Channel said Thursday.
“The youngest of those wanted surrendered to police pleading not guilty. His alibi will be verified by investigators,” iTele said on Twitter.
According to iTele, Hamid Mourad said that at the time of the attack he was in lycée in Charleville-Mezieres. It was reported earlier that Mourad is a student.
“It has now been officially revealed (to the surprise of virtually no one) that at least two of the suspects in the Charlie Hebdo shootings are French-born individuals who were recruited for and trained in Syria in order to fight against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.” [Brandon Turbeville extends on Tony Cartellucci’s earlier article, “France Armed Terrorists That Struck Paris,” cites the 19th Arrondissement Network which had affiliations with the ad-Da’wa mosque,[ Bruinessen, Martin Van; Allievi, Stefano. Producing Islamic Knowledge: Transmission and Dissemination In Western Europe. Routlege. 2011. P.81.]] one of the largest mosques in Paris.]
“… Final inconsistencies tally:
1. 10 people were supposed to have died with others injured. Yet at the scene, a max of 2 ambulances showed up when well over 10 would have been needed for such an event.
2. It looks like they did fire some real rounds from the looks of one of the police cars for this “drill”, however the pictures are not clear enough to show if the bullet holes are just gangsta stickers, in one of the photos the police officers are laughing and joking next to the shot up car where someone supposedly died.
Additionally, images on Google of shot up windshields have cracks going all through the windshield. In this France event, all damage is limited to where the holes are. Is that possible?
3. All people who responded to the scene had French Foreign Legion haircuts. Odd for ambulance drivers and EMT’s.
4 (a good one) – If the perpetrators got away and have not been captured, HOW did the French police already identify them when they have not turned up elsewhere? Sort of like the passport on 911 or all those pristine passports from flight MH17. That works. Gotta have a positive ID on them to “prove” they are “Muslim” and not just the Mossad out on a field trip. Gotta do it when the shock factor is at max. And no one dropped a passport this time, HOW did the police figure it out? TIMES THREE?
5. I never saw any bloody photos from this, not even fake blood, not even from a police officer who was shot by an AK and laying on the sidewalk for 10 seconds before being “shot” a second time, and still no blood. Very odd if this is real.
6. Target was a group of Jews, who belong to a greater whole which stages B.S. terror attacks frequently. That stinks.
7. How did the road miraculously have no traffic? The scene is set up as if staged. It is as if the area was cordoned off prior to the “attack” for a drill, so the “terrorists” simply parked smack dab in the middle of the road because they knew there would be no traffic.
8. How did the attackers know there would be a giant staff meeting with everyone important for the publication present to be shot all at once? A little help from the NSA or what?
9. The publication had serious prior financial trouble, and if it was going to close anyway, why not use it to stage a psy op? That would “explain” why it closed, would it not?
10. There is no recoil on the AK as it shoots. I initially assumed blanks, but what about rubber bullets? At any rate, there was no sign of blood at any point from the police officer, an AK goes all the way through and bullet proof vests are for handguns, not AK rounds. If he was wearing one it would not work. LACK OF ANY RECOIL AT ALL SCREAMS BLANK.
Updates continuing, discuss this on the Forum
UPDATE: BUSTED, THEY ARE SHOOTING BLANKS.
I just saw the key video that clearly shows a police officer getting shot in the head by an AK47 at point blank. Problems: No brain splatter, no blood splatter, white smoke off the barrel dispersing in a wide cloud (which blanks do,) no body lurch at bullet impact …

Ed.: Given the obvious European flavors (note than I am American and live in America and have never ever been to Europe) to the anti-Muslim angle and the prior record of the Danish newspaper brouhaha, the populace was conditioned to see things through a certain filter and were thought ready — by the false flag perps — to accept another extension of that line of thought.
The “set-up” was ratcheted another degree or two, this is true, but the perps are hoist this time on their own petard because they see the “target” as a single dumb and lumbering entity instead of seeing it correctly for what it is: an evolving, learning, growing collection of thinking and concerned people who are building a world-wide synaptic network of neurons which “dump” data into a large pool and are thus able to file, analyze and solve with increasing rapidity.
They are building a series of “ganged” Cray super-computers to analyze and simulate; we already have one in the form of a global network, anoptjher reason they will work hard to take it away.
Past “false flag” events, even more poorly enacted, have been figured out within hours and then nailed down with intense and deep research by a few as time moved on.
In this case, in part because the opening assumption was “false flag”, the counter-theses were in formulation within two hours or so.
that, while they watch us, we need to watch them, and we need to think like they do (as in learning a foreign language) so as to better be able to understand their advance thinking, planning, etc. in order that we may be be better able to respond, remain grounded, etc.
I’ve long tried to understand such things as situational awareness [a good read is Gonzalez ‘ book “Deep Survival”], tactical-decision-making under stress [the extensive TADMUS research conducted by the US Navy and its sub-contractors grew out of the Vincennes incident in the Straits of Hormuz], and the OODA loop in depth; it’s time we got “on their six” instead of having to react to what they do.
And we need to understand their weapons and take them away from them in the sense not of denial or interference so much as to comprehend how they work and thence to turn them against them or at least take their use away from them. The metaphor comes from the practice of aikido and is demonstrated in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMJe2MJJP7E
We are getting better at getting “on their six”.

Sometimes when, in some form of loosely-collaborative team work, you are working for stability and growth, you don’t see more clearly who it is that you share the garden grounds with even when the evidence is right in front of you because you are too focused.]

Maidan leaders in Moscow attempted to conduct a lecture with a videolink to the Kiev Auto-Maidan leaders to learn their role in the coup d´état. Police entered the lecture room and politely detained the participants, along with some pro-sovereignty activists outside. All 25 detainees were later released. The lecture was entitled “Maidan – organizing the freedom zone. Experience of resistance.”

Report on the incident: …
The court finished the first part of the jury selection process, after having more than 1,350 jurors complete a 28-page questionnaire and review a list of witnesses. Individual “voir dire” or questioning of jurors won’t start up before Jan. 15. As for that jury questionnaire, it’s still “under seal in order to protect the integrity of the process,” according to the court.
