NGOs or the Non Governmental Organizations have become quite the choice tool of subversion, destabilization and domination for the US-led New World Order. As the recent Soros hack has shown, the US (in particular) has embarked on a sly strategy of infiltration in its foreign policy. Wars abroad are just few examples. On the surface, NGOs appear as benign, helpful and, at the very worst, harmless creatures which do work that promotes the betterment of humanity. Many of them do perform philanthropic work, however others are created and controlled right from the start to be nothing more than instruments of infiltration and influence – influence which is highly unwanted in the target nation. These latter kind of NGOs are a manifestation of US-NWO soft power by which the US can manipulate and dominate a country without having to fire a single bullet. This subterfuge was working very well for awhile, but now in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukraine coup and other events, including wars in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen etc., nations are beginning to wake up to the trickery and are passing laws restricting or forbidding NGOs on their turf. The fact that numerous nations such as Israel, China, India, Russia and others have passed laws against foreign NGOs gives you some idea of how powerful NGOs have become. Pakistan does not only need to pass similar laws, due to vulnerability of its poverty and crisis ridden nation, but needs to act on those laws and charters already in place on the limits of NGOs. In July 2016, Israel passed a law requiring foreign NGOs to declare the source of their funding. The introduction of the law read: “The law wishes to deal with the phenomenon of NGOs which represent foreign interests of foreign states, while acting under the cover of local organizations seeking to serve the interests of the Israeli public” and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the law’s goal was “to prevent an absurd situation in which foreign states meddle in Israel’s internal affairs by funding NGOs, without the Israeli public being aware of it.” Ironically, Israel is behind most of the NGOs worldwide, but does not like the taste of its bitter medicine even though sugar coated to swallow easily. Israel dishes it out, but can't take it back. In April 2016, China passed a law requiring foreign NGOs to register with, and be approved by, their government. In March 2015, India banned 69 NGOs from receiving foreign contributions. Earlier in December 2012, Russia passed a law that was specifically targeted against US NGOs operating inside Russia. Some of the provisions from the law are: Activities of NGOs participating in political activities or implementing other activities constituting a threat to the interests of Russia and receiving funds from US citizens or organizations shall be suspended and their assets seized (The Ministry of Justice may issue a decision to restart activities of an NGO whose activity was previously suspended after the NGO stops receiving funding from US citizens or organizations). Citizens with dual US-Russian dual citizenship are prohibited from membership or participation in the management of Russian NGOs or registered offices of foreign NGOs that participate in political activities in Russia. In case of the seizure of assets of an NGO, the NGO also loses its rights to found mass media outlets and is prohibited from conducting mass and public events and from using bank accounts, with a few exceptions outlined in Federal Law on NCOs. So why are so many countries all of a sudden getting so scared of NGOs? The answer lies in the power of NGOs to influence public thought and stealthily disseminate propaganda that can cause people to lost faith in their politicians, overthrow governments and induce a nation to make poor decisions that benefit the funder of the NGOs, usually the US. “Human Rights Watch, and the NGO complex at large, has condemned China’s Overseas NGO Management Law because they quite rightly believe that it will severely hamper their efforts to act independently of Beijing. However … the reality is that they act as a de facto arm of western intelligence agencies and governments, and they have played a central role in the destabilization of China in recent years.” The NGOs of arch manipulator George Soros played a big part in the 2014 Ukrainian coup. The horrible Ukrainian coup of 2014 could not have been pulled off without the help of Soros and his NGOs. Vicky Nuland told us that the US pumped $5 billion into regime change there. Earlier in May 2016, Vanessa Beeley reported that the so-called White Helmets NGO was actually a “US and UK government-funded “first responder” organization in Syria … shown to have deep ties to al- Nusra Front as well as links to ISIS, and it operates exclusively within terrorist-held areas in Syria, including participation in executions:” Links to the US-Uk-Israeli controlled pet Frankenstein ISIS. This NGO matches the “humanitarian” bombings carried out by NATO against innocent civilians in Libya and other Middle Eastern countries. NGOs are running amok. We don’t just have NGOs; we have an actual NGO complex which is controlled by the New World Order and is part of their psychological operations and perception management department. It ensures that American democracy and humanitarian interventions are coated with sugar to go down well. Often, they hide behind the excuse of furthering human rights as a way to justify their subversive operations. This spells out the way these NGOs operate: “Shaping western public perception and opinion on major international issues is essential if major world powers are to realise their foreign policy goals." Not surprisingly, we can see that many of the public positions taken by NGOs are exactly aligned with western foreign policy. In the Balkans War of the 1990s, human rights groups supported partitioning. In the Ukraine in 2014 and with both Syria and Yemen in 2016 they supported regime change. In each instance NGOs function as a public relations extension to a United Nations western member Security Council bloc, namely the US, UK and France. This collusion is manifest throughout the upper echelons of these organizations whose streamlined agenda conforms through a lucrative revolving door which exists between a cartel of western NGOs, government and media.” The role of NGOs and human rights organizations has been pivotal in Syria, to provide cover for the US to carry out its clear intention of regime change:“By framing the Syrian Conflict (2011 to present) as a “civil war”, both western media and human rights organizations did their part in propping-up an important western foreign policy narrative. Inaccurate and distorted, this narrative has helped shield the US-led clandestine proxy war. But the reality is a US-backed guerrilla war where Washington and Ankara, along with NATO and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) allies, flooding Turkey and Syria with weapons, cash, equipment, social media teams, military trainers and foreign fighters from as a far away as Pakistan.” NGOs are responsible for all those feelgood petitions that totally misinform Westerners about some poor country that is about to get invaded, whip up misdirected outrage and persuade people to get in line with the exact military goals the US has already planned. Too many NGOs call for “No Fly Zones“, “Buffer Zones” or “Safe Zones“. Remember the phony Stop Kony 2012 campaign? Remember how George Soros’ Avaaz called for a No Fly Zone in Libya, to help US-NATO assassinate Gaddafi and control Libya? A lot of people are getting played like a fiddle. A conclusion may be drawn that nations protecting themselves against foreign NGOs are justified. Pumping money into foreign countries for regime change, or manipulating foreign elections for leadership change, is an old game that the CIA and branches of the US Government have been playing for decades. The game is nothing new; it’s only the style that has changed. NGOs are the velvet glove on the iron fist, carrying out the dirty subversive work of the NWO but making it look like roses. Fortunately, many nations targeted by this rank infiltration have noticed the threat and taken appropriate measures to defend their culture, laws, stability and way of life. It remains to be seen as to how much longer it will be until people in the US and the West wake up to the NGO subversion too.

North Korea threatens to 'counter' US over military drills BOLLYWOOD: SEOUL: North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un inspects artillery launchers ahead of a military drill marking the 85th anniversary of the establishment of the Korean People's Army (KPA). - File Photo SEOUL: North Korea threatened on Saturday to “counter the US” if the United States holds joint military exercises with South Korea, and said it would not beg for talks with Washington. The United States is due to start joint exercises in early April, a South Korean presidential security adviser said this week according to Yonhap news agency — the latest in a series of drills that the north has regularly described as a threat. “If the US finally holds joint military exercises while keeping sanctions on the DPRK, the DPRK will counter the US by its own mode of counteraction and the US will be made to own all responsibilities for MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin addresses the Federal Assembly. MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin told Washington to send him hard evidence that his citizens meddled in US elections, mocking accusations to date as “yelling and hollering in the United States Congress”. The office of US Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians and three firms last month with interfering in the 2016 presidential vote as part of what the ensuing consequences,” North Korea’s official KCNA news agency said in its commentary, saying the drills would harm reconciliation efforts on the peninsula. The DPRK is the acronym of the country’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. On February 23, the US said it was imposing its it called a conspiracy to support Donald Trump and disparage Hillary Clinton. “I have to see first what they’ve done. Give us materials, give us information,” largest package of sanctions to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear and missile programs. President Donald Trump warned of a ”phase two” that could be “very, very unfortunate for the world” if the steps did not work. North Korea has slammed Trump’s unilateral sanctions against it, but it said it was open to talks Putin said in an interview with NBC TV aired late on Friday, according to an English voice-over of his words. “We can not respond to with the United States during senior North Korean officials’ visit to South Korea for the Olympics last month. The White House said any talks with North Korea must lead to an end of its nuclear program. North Korea reiterated on Saturday that it was willing to talk to the US but said it would never sit with any precondition. Putin tells US to send evidence of vote meddling Police release CCTV images of alleged Melbourne stabbing offenders By SJA Jafri Bureau Chief Australia MELBOURNE: Police have released CCTV images of the two men believed to be responsible for an alleged stabbing in Melbourne yesterday that has left a teenager clinging to life. Victoria Police confirmed officers from the Whitehorse Crime Investigation Unit are investigating the stabbing, which occurred at a shopping centre on Main Street, Box Hill yesterday. “The first offender is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, about 175cm tall with dark hair and medium build, wearing a dark colored windcheater and dark tracksuit pants,” authorities said in a statement. “The second offender is also perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, about 175cm tall with short fair hair and a thin build wearing sunglasses on his head, a blue short sleeved t-shirt and dark colored pants with a small bag over his shoulder.” It is believed the 19-year-old Balwyn man received stab wounds in an altercation with the two males around 4.30pm yesterday after a fight broke out.

Italy votes in uncertain election stalked by populism ROME: Italians went to the polls on Sunday in one of the country s most uncertain elections ever, with far-right and populist parties expected to make major gains and Silvio Berlusconi set to play a leading role. Polling stations opened at 0600 GMT and will close at 2200 GMT, with initial results expected early on Monday. Tensions between farright and anti-fascist activists have marred a gloomy campaign dominated by fears about immigration and economic malaise. "This election campaign has been pretty squalid, including from the Democratic Party (PD), who I voted for," 24-year-old barber Mirko Canali told AFP after casting his vote in Rome. He said he knew many other young people who, fed up with high youth unemployment, had decided to support the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S). Many Italians are cynical about election promises made by the country s many squabbling parties and confused about what the outcome might be. Jordan skate park puts smile on faces of refugee children AMMAN: Hair flying in the wind Manar, Amniya and Farida hurtle down the slopes of "7Hills Skate Park" in the Jordanian capital Amman where refugee children come to play. The 650-square-metre (almost 7,000-foot) concrete space was built in December 2014 by skateboard enthusiasts from around the world. The money was raised during a fundraising campaign by a German NGO and a local association that offers free classes for the children of refugees from countries such as Syria, Iraq or Sudan. Mohammed Duma, a 40- year-old Sudanese man who fled the war in Darfur, looks on with pride and a touch of apprehension as his two daughters, aged four and eight, learn to ride a skateboard with their trainer. A North Korean foreign ministry spokesman was quoted by state media KCNA news agency as saying “we will neither beg for dialogue nor evade the military option claimed by the US”. “Whether peace desired by our nation and the rest of the world settles on the Korean peninsula or a situation that no one desires is developed in the vicious cycle of confrontation depends entirely on the attitude of the US,” the spokesman said, according to KCNA. South Korea plans to send a special envoy to North Korea in response to an invitation from leader Kim Jong Un, South Korean President Moon Jae-in told Trump in a phone call on Thursday. The Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang last month gave a boost to recent engagement between the two Koreas after sharply rising tensions over the North’s missile program.

ISTANBUL: A news website in the Kurdishmajority Turkish city of Diyarbakir, staffed only by women, has been repeatedly shut down by the authorities over alleged terror propaganda but it is refusing to give up the fight to publish. Jin News Agency, from the Kurdish word for woman "Jin", focuses on Kurdish and women’s issues and publishes in Kurdish, Turkish, Arabic and English. Written for women, it is run by a female-only team from the accountant to the photographer, and editors to camerawomen. The agency, set up in 2012, has come under pressure from the Turkish authorities who have closed it twice and shut off access to the agency seven times. Turkish authorities accuse the agency of making "terror propaganda" for the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency against Turkey since 1984. The PKK is proscribed as a terror group byAnkara and its Western allies and since Monday, March 5, 2018 International Jhanvi Kapoor, the daughter of late Bollywood actor Sridevi, posted an emotional tribute on Instagram just a week after the death of her mother. She shared the heartfelt message on her first birthday without her mother. “There’s a gnawing hollowness in my chest that I know I’ll have to learn how to live with,” the 20-year-old wrote on social media just days before turning 21. “Even with all the emptiness, I still feel your love, I feel you protecting me from sadness and pain. Every time I close my eyes, I only have good things to remember. I know it’s you doing that.” She also posted multiple pictures of herself with her mother and a caption reading: “On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents.” Here’s the full post: Sridevi was found dead last weekend having “accidentally drowned” in a bathtub, according to a forensic report. According to Indian media, she lost balance, fell into the bathtub and drowned. 5 Sridevi’s daughter posts emotional message on first birthday without mother TEHRAN: Iranian security forces have thwarted acts of terror by more than 30 terrorist cells other than Daesh Takfiri group in recent years, an official with Iran's Intelligence Ministry says. "More than 30 armed terrorist groups had plans to carry out measures over the past few years to make the country insecure and disturb the peace of the [Iranian] people," the deputy intelligence minister for counterterrorism said in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday. He added that all the terrorist moves had been foiled thanks to the vigilance of the Iranian people and great efforts by security forces in Dubai authorities deemed the “case closed” soon after and released the body to the family, which was then transported back to India. Terror acts by over 30 armed groups thwarted over past few years WASHINGTON:Aman fatally shot himself on the crowded pedestrian avenue directly in front of the White House on Saturday, officials said. “Adult male has been declared deceased,” the Washington, DC Police Department said on Twitter. The Secret Service said a white male approached the fence north of the White House at about 11:46 am (1646 GMT), “removed a concealed handgun and fired several rounds, none of which appear at this time to have been directed towards the White House.” The man’s identity is being withheld cooperation with Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Army, the police force and the judicial system. The unnamed Intelligence Ministry's official stressed the importance of remaining vigilant in the face of new plots by terrorists and their regional and international supporters. The IRGC Ground Forces' Najaf base said late in January that it had arrested a number of Daesh Takfiri terrorists in the west of the country. Following intelligence activities, the IRGC division engaged in clashes with 21 members of the Daesh terrorist group, which had entered the country through its western borders. Man fatally shoots himself in front of White House the breakdown of a ceasefire in 2015 Turkey has launched a relentless crackdown against the group. The crackdown has been wide, with media seen as sympathetic to the PKK finding themselves in the crosshairs of the authorities. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has argued there is no difference between a "terrorist holding a gun or a bomb or those who use their pen to serve their aims." Turkey stepped up the campaign after the failed July 2016 coup attempt, with dozens of media outlets accused of links to putschists and the PKK closed down. ‘What else can we do’ There are currently six legal cases against Jin News Agency accusing it of "terror propaganda". Its website is blocked in Turkey. The agency rejects the accusations and says that the issue is one of press freedom. It is continuing to publish news but the articles can only be read on social media and accessible via Virtual Private Networks (VPN). Camerawoman Beritan Elyakut, based in Diyarbakir and working for the agency for five years, complained the website was unable to pending notification of kin, the Secret Service said in a statement. While as many as 100 people — mostly tourists — were on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House at the time, no one else was reported hurt, the Secret Service said. Police and medical personnel quickly swarmed the area, and the White House was placed on lockdown. The area north of the White House was cleared and cordoned off. Police also draped yellow crime-scene tape along a full block of nearby K Street, where authorities were searching a parked car. Diyarbakir: DAKP members announced March 8 program and will be in the meeting areas for peace with their actions and activities "reach the outside world". "What else can we do?" she added as she filmed a story ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8, saying the website used six different domain names "but closures continued uninterrupted". The latest website domain, jinnews7.com, was blocked in Turkey on February 22 after AFP spoke to Elyakut. The website, funded by subsriptions, tackles topics that are off limits for Turkish media, including the fate of Abdullah Ocalan the PKK leader jailed for life by Turkey for terror offences.
