UK News Site: Dying Mi5 agent admits to killing Princess Di



If true, this news is seismic.

Neon Nettle is a UK-based independent (i.e., non-corporate) alternate online news magazine. It describes itself as:
“a free independent news source created by people for people, not corporations. We gather news and information from the web and present them to our viewers in the most ‘easy to digest’ way possible, we adhere to all copyright laws and honor our aggregated content by citing our sources and authorship . . . .
At Neon Nettle, we believe the mainstream has become less valid as it continues its on going practices of censorship and narratives. We appreciate that there are aspects of our articles that you won’t agree with, but that’s ok, in fact we encourage it! If you don’t agree with something then leave your thoughts in our comment section or even write a counter article and if relevant enough, we will happily publish.”
A perusal of Neon Nettle’s page shows articles that fit the “alternate news” label, but are not hoaxes. Some examples:
Below is, verbatim and in its entirety, the Neon Nettle article of June 19, 2017 by Jay Greenberg, “Dying Mi5 Agent Admits to Killing Princess Diana in Deathbed Confession“.

A dying British Intelligence agent has made a series of stunning confessions after being told that he only has a matter of weeks to live by doctors, including that he was tasked with the murder of Princess Diana.
80-year-old John Hopkins is a retired Mi5 operative who worked as a hit-man for UK Government and claims to have carried out 23 assassinations between 1973 and 1999.
Hopkins was a 38-year veteran and claims that his job often involved discretely assassinating individuals who “posed a threat to national security”.
During his time serving the United Kingdom, he trained extensively as a mechanical engineer and munitions expert and claims to be “seasoned” in unconventional murders involving poisons and chemicals.
The retired British assassin says he worked as part of a cell of seven operatives who were trusted to conduct political assassinations during a period he describes as “when MI5 operated with less external oversight”.
Many of his top secret cell’s victims were politicians, journalists, activists, and union leaders.
Mr. Hopkins claims that Princess Diana was the only women he ever killed, adding that; “She was the only target where the order came directly from the Royal family.”
When asked about how he felt about taking the life of The People’s Princess, he said he felt “ambivalent” about her death, describing her as “a beautiful, kind-hearted woman” who had her life cut tragically short but that “she was also placing the British Crown at risk”, saying:
“The Royal Family had evidence that she was planning to divorce Charles."
“She knew too many Royal secrets. She had a huge grudge and she was going to go public with all sorts of wild claims."
“My boss told me she had to die – he’d received orders directly from Prince Philip – and we had to make it look like an accident.”
“I’d never killed a woman before, much less a princess, but I obeyed orders. I did it for Queen and Country.”
He claims the operation was run under strict control from Buckingham Palace in direct cooperation with the mainstream media.
The high-level conspiracy involved collusion between the media and Palace to “square their stories, make sure everybody was on the same page. It was a well-run operation."
Speaking about the conspirators in the operation, Hopkins said:
“British journalists all answer to editors who answer to oligarchs who all want knighthoods from the crime family at Buckingham Palace.”
“There is no free press in Britain,”
“We got away with murder.”



After being told that he only has a short time left to live from his doctors, Hopkins said he will spend his final weeks at home, but admitted that he expects to be arrested after his admissions, or even silenced, saying:
“I can’t say that I care an awful lot.”
“If they try to take me out, they’ll be doing me a favor now.”
He explained that he would be “long-gone” should an investigation be opened as it would “take forever” and be “very complicated” due to the limited records on the operations, adding that “most of my colleagues are already dead”.
Hopkins claims that the main conspirator in the murder of Princess Diana was Prince Philip, but said that he “will never be charged with anything, of course”.
“If Prince Philip ever let himself be analyzed by a psychiatrist I’m sure he’d be diagnosed a psychopath. He has all the dark triad traits."
Should this case ever be investigated, the most important witness would be Mr. Hopkins boss who apparently died of a heart attack in “the early 2000s”.
When Hopkins was asked why he didn’t expose the plot earlier or refuse the job at the time, he explained:
“MI5 agents swear allegiance to the Crown."
“We can’t be impartial when it comes to the Royal family.”

“At best I would have been done for treason, at worst Philip would have designed a grisly fate for me.”
What do you think?

Sandy Hook: Megyn Kelly and NBC perpetrate a Fraud on the Public


Jim Fetzer

With great fanfare, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" and her encounter with Alex Jones over Sandy Hook finally arrived. Although her viewing audience disappointed the network with only 3.5 million, the program itself--where Alex Jones was straddling the fence not wanting to lose fans who believe Sandy Hook to be a hoax, while trying to pacify the left watching NBC by saying he believed that children had really died there--was laden with false information, perpetrating a fraud on the public.

The most telling exchange occurs during the introduction, where Kelly asks Jones for the source of his information. He replies that 95% of what he covers comes from articles he has read, where she replies, "But if you haven't ascertained the veracity of that article and it's all BS, then you put out a bunch of disinformation!" Here's the broadcast for your viewing. Kelly and NBC have clearly never verified the "Sandy Hook Story", which is BS: They are putting out massive loads of disinformation.

Given the controversy swirling around the forthcoming broadcast, when I learned it was possible to write to NBC with comments or suggestions on their programs, I sent NBC the following advisory:


A responsible network, concerned about the accuracy of a program on such an inflammatory and controversial subject, would want to take pains to make sure what they were promoting was true or at least well-founded on the available evidence. But we have ample proof that it could have cared less!

MAJOR MATTERS

(1) Neither Megyn nor NBC appear to have even read Stephen Sedensky's Report on the Shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and 39 Yogananda Street, the purported residence of Adam Lanza, the alleged shooter or they would have known that his fingerprints were not on the .22 caliber rifle with which he is supposed to have shot his mother and that none of the 150 bullet fragments with the Bushmaster means it fails to tie the shooter to either his weapons or his victims. See note 53, page 37:


(2) Some lies are bigger than others, where Neil Heslin, who is supposed to have lost his son, Jesse, at Sandy Hook, talks about holding his body with a bullet hole through his head in his arms on the scene. But, as Wayne Carver, Medical Examiner, explained during his press conference, the parents were not allowed to see the bodies but only to identify them using photographs. So if you assumed that something like this really happened at Sandy Hook, who is telling the truth? Are they both lying?



(3) Had NBC downloaded NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015), which I released for free as a pdf when it was banned by amazon.com in an act of political suppression--where Jay Carney went from the White House to become its Senior Vice President shortly before--it could have reviewed the FEMA manual included as Appendix A, which explains the sign, "Everyone must check in!", the Porta-Potties already in place and the number of those wearing color-coded name tags on lanyards:



(4) At one point, Megyn asks Alex, "What happened to the children?" The observations made by the contributors to the book--that the children were wearing clothing that appeared to be about 10 years out-of-date--has been confirmed by the discovery that Noah Pozner, for example, was created out of photos of his purported older step brother as a child, which they would have known had the followed the link that I provided to "Sandy Hook Charade: 'Noah Pozner' WAS Michael Vabner as a Child":





(5) Alex Jones and Inforwars.com had been aware of the book having been banned and published an article about it not long thereafter, which was much appreciated by experts on the case. But it was only up for 38 minutes, during which it had received 138 comments. The swift removal followed by its erasure from the archives for the show appears to have been induced by the IMAGE CREDIT to CONNECTICUT STATE POLICE, who were running the show and which had to be covered up:

That image is one of 50 published in Ch. 8 Refurbishing the School to Serve as the Stage, where the SWAT team is already present and the four windows of Classroom 10 are undamaged, although they would be shot up after the event. A familiar figure is reclining against the wall, awaiting the arrival of his portable mortuary tent. And there is crime scene up for a crime that has yet to be committed. Such are the findings presented in a book that amazon.com felt compelled to ban after just a month on sale.

LESSER POINTS
 
(6) Kelly opens by attacking Alex for claiming that elements of the US government allowed 9/11 to happen to convey the impression: if Alex is willing to go that far on 9/11, why should he possibly be taken seriously on anything else? Evidence supports the far stronger position that the CIA, neocons in the Department of Defense and the Mossad did not simply allow 9/11 to happen but orchestrated its occurrence. The public doesn't know better, so she succeeds in raising doubts about his credibility. 

(7) Alex doesn't handle himself very well, being careless about the Manchester event, for example, where there was a rehearsal a year in advance and photos showing "victims" are of adult men lying on the floor, not teen-age girls. Manchester appears to be one of at least three staged events in the UK --at Westminster Bridge, at Manchester and at London Bridge--that appear to have been intended to boost the political prospects of Theresa May. Here's that rehearsal, which was captured on video:



(8) Megyn features Charlie Sykes, a right-wing opponent of Donald Trump from Wisconsin, which appears designed to introduce the notion of "toxic paranoia" as a prelude to Sandy Hook. Otherwise, there is no good reason for his presence. He was used as "filler" to connect the President's interest in Alex Jones with those who fault him on virtually every count. This was probably the least interesting aspect of NBC's coverage of Sandy Hook, about which Sykes knows next to nothing. Embarrassing!


(9) When Alex published his "Father's Day Message to Newtown Families", I posted a comment on the basics of the case, only to discover that his own web site would not allow it to stand. This was so stunning to me that I returned to post a second time and then, when that post was likewise deleted, one final time for emphasis. That Alex Jones has sold out Sandy Hook Truth is now beyond dispute, where none of us should continue to place any trust in him at all. He's just one more limited hangout:




(10) Even Matt Taibbi, whom I have regarded with a certain degree of respect in the past, decided to stand with Megyn in her attack on Alex, "Megyn Kelly Vivisects Bloated Conspiracy Hog Alex Jones", Rolling Stone (20 June 2017). What he displays is that he knows no more about Sandy Hook than do Megyn Kelly and NBC, where, however, i am less disposed to infer that his motives are equally corrupt. I posted the following comment, which disappeared less than 30 minutes later:


CLOSING REFLECTIONS

The proof that Sandy Hook was an elaborate hoax is both abundant and compelling. Because so much of the evidence is visual, here are three of the videos I have done on Sandy Hook, The first provides a general orientation, the second focuses upon the SWAT team and Wayne Carver, and the third--with a highly qualified EMT--explains that proper medical procedures were not followed at Sandy Hook or in San Bernardino, where we even have the Craig's List ad for extras on the set. It's simply appalling:









Alex has published the interview with a running commentary, but nothing he does henceforth can restore public confidence in his integrity. He has sold out Sandy Hook and I can see no prospect for his redemption. Standing up for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is demanding upon us all, where I and others have lost friends and relationships over this highly emotional issue. Someone we regarded as a champion of truth in the alternative media turns out to have feet of clay.

Finian Cunningham: Self-Defense is No Defense for US Acts of War in Syria

Self-Defense Is No Defense for US Acts of War in Syria
FINIAN CUNNINGHAM | 20.06.2017 | WORLD

Self-Defense Is No Defense for US Acts of War in Syria

The shooting down of a Syrian fighter jet by US forces this week comes on the back of several aggressive actions by American military on the ground. Taken together the US actions mark an alarming escalation of intervention in the Syrian war – to the point where the Americans can be said to be now openly at war against Syria.
The American military actions also come despite repeated warnings from Russia against such unilateral deployment of force. Following the shoot-down of the Syrian SU-22 fighter bomber this week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denounced the American violence as an act of «flagrant aggression» against a sovereign state. Some Russian lawmakers such as Duma foreign affairs chief Alexei Pushkov went further and condemned it as an act of war by the Americans.
Of course, Washington’s logic is riddled with absurdity. To claim that its forces are acting in self-defense overlooks the glaring reality that the US-led military coalition has no legal mandate whatsoever to be in Syria in the first place. Its forces are in breach of international law by operating on Syrian territory without the consent of the government in Damascus and without a mandate from the UN Security Council.
Another absurdity is the claim that the US forces are «protecting» militants whom they are supposedly training to «fight» the Islamic State terror group (ISIS). On at least three occasions over the past month, American military have carried out air strikes on Syrian government forces and their allies near a strategically important border crossing between Syria and Iraq. The Americans claim that the Syrian government forces were posing a threat to a military base at Al Tanf on the Syrian side of the border where they are training militants belonging to a group called Maghawir al Thawra.
The Pentagon claims that these militants are being trained to «fight and defeat» ISIS. The installation last week of long-range artillery batteries known as HIMARS at Al Tanf was justified as a self-defense measure. US Colonel Ryan Dillon said: «We have increased our military footprint and are prepared for any threat that is presented to us by the pro-regime forces».
As with the shooting down of the Syrian fighter jet this week, American forces are invoking «self-defense» as a legal rationale. But as Moscow has pointed out, the Americans have no legal right to be present on Syrian territory and then, secondly, to be unilaterally declaring «deconfliction zones» for what are de facto invasive forces.
A further nail to the American lie is exposed when the nature of the militant group is looked at more closely. Unverified video footage showing the US-backed militants at Al Tanf indicates that they are another brand of jihadist terrorism. The videos show Maghawir al Thawra militants repeatedly shouting the jihadist slogan «allu akbar». They are also equipped with the notorious top-of-the-range white Toyota land cruisers that other jihadist groups have obtained through funding by Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies.
Syrian sources have confirmed to this author that the group displayed in the videos is indeed the Maghawir al Thawra and that they are unquestionably jihadist. Yet this is the same group that the US has openly declared to be training at its military base at Al Tanf to «fight and defeat ISIS», and which the US is supposedly «protecting» from advancing Syrian army units and their allies.
What’s more, it is reported that in addition to American forces at Al Tanf, there are British and other NATO troops, as well as those from two other Arab states. This amounts to a full-scale US-NATO intervention in the Syrian war – an intervention which seems to be clearly on the side of jihadist terror groups.
After the shooting down of the Syrian warplane by American forces this week, Moscow noted pointedly that Washington has openly taken sides with terror groups aiming to topple the sovereign government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. There can be no other pretense.
The bolstering of the US military footprint at the Al Tanf base near the Syrian-Iraqi border is another sign of brazen American siding with terror groups. As the videos above show, the notion that these militants are somehow «moderate rebels» who are combating ISIS does not bear scrutiny.
This US-led charade of supporting «moderate rebels» has been going on for nearly six years in Syria. The mercurial «Free Syrian Army» and the «Syrian Defense Forces» are part of this smoke and mirrors game designed to obscure the fact that the Americans and their NATO allies are using proxy militant groups dominated by jihadist terror networks, for the objective of regime change. The plethora of different names for these proxies – all whom are illegally armed groups – is just part of the cynical game to conceal the fact that Washington and its allies are waging a criminal war against a sovereign nation.
As independent investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley told this author: «The labelling by the US of any extremist faction fighting in Syria as a Free Syrian Army division is nothing more than a cynical marketing ploy to rebrand these group as ‘moderate’».
Beeley says that the Maghawir al Thawra militants whom the US claim to be protecting in a supposed campaign to defeat ISIS is just another instance of Washington «rebranding terror groups as moderates».
Another giveaway to the real nature of this US-patronized group came from a Reuters report in which one of the Maghawir commanders was interviewed.
Maghawir al Thawra spokesman Abu al Atheer said the goal of the US forces was to take the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor. That city is already under the control of the Syrian government forces and their allies. If the US and its militants were motivated to defeat ISIS, then why are they moving on Deir Ezzor?
The Maghawir commander also revealed his extremist ideological affiliations when he went on to talk about Iranian-backed forces allied with the Syrian government. «The battle is not over and we will not allow the Iranian Shi'ites to occupy our land. Our response to those who stand against us will be cruel», he told Reuters.
Recall this is the same supposedly «moderate» group whom the US, British and Norwegian NATO troops are training at Al Tanf and for which the US has installed long-range artillery batteries in «an act of self-defense».
Events in Syria seem to be spiraling toward a bigger international war. This week Iran hit ISIS bases near Deir Ezzor with medium range ballistic missiles fired from inside Iranian territory. Tehran says the action was coordinated with the Syrian government. Meanwhile, the US is stepping up its direct assault on Syrian government forces.
Another telling development in the slide to wider war is that the US forces are moving towards blatantly defending jihadists like Maghawir al Thawra from Syrian, Russian and Iranian forces who are the only ones actually taking the battle to defeat jihadists. The US mask of hiding behind «moderate rebels» is slipping. Washington is now seen to be increasingly at war in Syria. It seems only a matter of time before US forces come into direct clash with Russian and Iranian military.
