FIVE HOSTAGES ESCAPE: Two women and three men break free from a Sydney cafe as police 'make contact' with Muslim extremist armed with a shotgun, machete and suspected bomb 15 Dec 2014 Two young female employees have now fled a central Sydney cafe more than seven hours after a terrorist armed with a gun took dozens of people hostage and forced crying women to hold a black Islamic flag up to the window. A total of five hostages have now escaped Lindt cafe in Martin Place after a male employee and two male customers ran out a fire exit and hid behind heavily armed police officers shortly before 3.45pm on Monday. There are claims that the terrorist is also armed with a machete and may have explosives but this has not been confirmed by police. One of the hostage-takers has made contact with officers saying that he has 'devices all over the city' and 'wants to speak with the prime minister live on radio', according to Ray Hadley, from 2GB. Armed police have sealed off streets around the cafe and Martin Place station is shut as officers operate according to their counter terrorism protocols. [Yes, it was 'babies pulled from the incubators' all over again. Crying women forced to hold black Islamic flags; babies pulled from incubators -- all seemingly under the false flag rubric so Tony Abbott can implement further police state measures and Five Eyes/NSA can keep on spying. --LRP]

"It is not a matter for the MoD," one Ministry of Defence official told the newspaper. "The aircraft use our airfields. We don't ask any questions."

Quick action! Request UN election monitors, observers for Canada 6 Dec 2014 In the days following the May 2nd, 2011, Canadian federal election, faith was shattered and confidence lost in Elections Canada's ability to ensure a fair, honest and unimpeded electoral process as reports of widespread voter suppression and fraud began to surface... "The Federal Court has found in no uncertain terms that widespread election fraud took place during the 2011 federal election." The ruling clearly states that "there was an orchestrated effort to suppress votes during the 2011 election campaign by a person with access to the [Conservative Party's] CIMS database." ...As a result, Canadian Citizens can no longer trust the legitimacy or integrity of future federal elections in Canada and formally request UN election monitors to oversee our federal election in 2015.
