CANADIAN PUBLISHER FACES JAIL FOR POLITICAL WRITINGS! PLEASE DONATE!

My name is Arthur Topham and I am the owner, publisher and editor of the online alternative News site RadicalPress.com which has been operating in Canada for the past sixteen years. Over the last eight years I have been involved in legal battles with the Canadian government, first the Canadian Human Rights Commission and now the federal legal system over alleged offences that purportedly violate Canada's "Hate Propaganda" laws. At this point in time I have expert legal help preparing Charter applications but in terms of raising the necessary $15,000 to cover all the costs of hiring competent legal counsel to present the applications here in Quesnel, the results thus far have proven to be rather disheartening with only $2000.00 having been raised since early November of 2014.

Not a Single Police Officer Has Ever Been Killed by So-Called ‘Cop Killer’ AR-15 Bullets

Editor’s Note: This time, it’s the White House engaged in a conspiracy theory…

The White House is trying to get 5.56 “armor piercing” rounds classified as “cop killer” bullets. But there’s only one problem: no cop has ever been killed by the “green-tipped” AR-15 ammunition.

Don’t Believe Media Coverage of Venezuela

Most of what Americans knew about the country other than that it had abundant oil reserves was the fact that it once won a Miss Universe contest and was home to a few good baseball players. That ignorance has been a perfect blank slate on which the U.S. government, mainstream media and right-wing opposition parties have been able to carve their warped perspectives about Venezuela’s left-wing government.

Toronto Star: Harper's terror fixation draws attention from Canada's failing economy

Two issues dominate Canadian politics. One is talked about. The other is not.

The one talked about is terrorism. It is the topic of the day.

Politicians furiously debate the government’s new anti-terror bill. Does it go too far? Would it do any good if passed?

Or, perversely, would it make matters worse?

The issue that is not much talked about any more — at least by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government — is the economy.

At a fundamental level, the economy is failing. Any number of studies point to this fact. The latest was released this week by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

Veteran US journalist slams Israeli propaganda

Veteran US journalist and former CNN anchor Jim Clancy has spoken out against the Israeli media less than two months after stepping down from the news network following his anti-Israeli tweets.

Clancy told Lebanese journalists in Beirut on Friday that the Israeli media is particularly well-funded and is acting in an organized manner in their propaganda campaign, according to The Daily Star.

Beware of Savior Merkel

A few days ago, The International New York Times published an interesting op-ed by German journalist Jochen Bittner, who is a political editor at the staunch pro-American newspaper Die Zeit and a contributing opinion writer for The International New York Times.

If you read Bittner’s article, you will understand why other journalists are wondering which drugs the guys at Die Zeit are taking.

Bittner is worried that “our enlightened societies” suffer from an “autoimmune disease.” This is evident from the reluctance to support a war against Russia, the widespread opposition to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the election of an “anti-globalization” government in Greece.

Thus, the German journalist comes to the conclusion that the West urgently needs “a dose of the Kennedy spirit.” And according to Bittner, there is only one Western leader left who has what it takes to save us:

French Cartoonist Zeon Arrested for Anti-Zionist Work

The French cartoonist Zeon was arrested Tuesday morning by four police officers of the Brigade of Repression of Delinquency People (BRDP).

At 7 am, four police officers woke the cartoonist to take him before the judge to the High Court Instance of Paris. A complaint appears to have been filed by the BNVCA (National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism).

The complaint seems to refer to the drawing – for which Zeon had yet been released last year by the 17th chamber – representing a balance and unbalanced weight of several historical crimes, but also for another drawing, which was not retained by the prosecutor at the trial, representing a Palestinian child stabbed by a knife-shaped Israel.

The judge has indicted the designer of incitement to racial, religious hatred, by speech, writing, picture or means of electronic communication. Zeon refused to answer his questions. He was set free in late morning.

Quick reminder on the BNVCA

Washington Yanks British Bulldog into Line

The gross interference by Washington in Britain’s forthcoming election on the vital issue of budgetary priorities clearly demonstrates that British «democracy» is but an appendage to an American leash. And the leash is being yanked to pull the snarling bulldog into line.

In a brazen show of bringing-to-heel in their «special relationship», American political and Pentagon chiefs are openly rebuking the British government to maintain its huge military spend on the NATO alliance – to the possible detriment of already withering public services in austerity-clobbered Britain. The imposition by Washington raises serious questions about the nature of democracy in Britain – the self-proclaimed «Mother of all Parliaments».

Bibi Joffrey and the Flower of Zion

The walls are thick and strong beyond imagining, but the elders who sleep in the bowels of Zion know that this rumbling at their foundation marks well their inevitable fall.

The first great stone has hit the ramparts of Zion. The elders within the walls, down in the bowels of the fortress, have sat bolt upright, as they have felt the unmistakable rumbling vibration. Their eyes, which are usually narrow with the self-regard of the power of their own devious cunning, have suddenly gone wide with fear, as instantly they know that the inevitable has arrived upon them.

As another great stone finds the wall, and shakes the very air, these elders fly from their beds with great alarm.
The walls are thick and strong beyond imagining, but the elders who sleep in the bowels of Zion know that this rumbling at their foundation marks well their inevitable fall.

Don’t Believe Media Coverage of Venezuela

Diplomatic relations between Venezuela and the U.S. have just taken a big hit, with the government of Nicolas Maduro demanding that the American Embassy in Caracas reduce its staff by 80% and that U.S. visitors apply for visas.

Most symbolically, Venezuela has now barred a number of U.S. officials from visiting, including George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The backdrop to these political moves is a new crisis within Venezuela that has an old script: right-wing leaders plan a coup, with the U.S. deeply implicated; wealthy protesters take to the streets; and the Western media cover both stories with great sympathy while openly mocking the democratically elected government for attempting to defend itself.

What Was Missing From the US Mainstream Coverage of Netanyahu’s Speech

Reading the lead stories on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress about Iran in five prominent US papers–the New York Times, Washington Post,LA Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today(all 3/3/15)–what was most striking was what was left out of these articles.

None of them mentioned, for example, that Israel possesses nuclear weapons. Surely this is relevant when a foreign leader says that it needs the United States’ help to stop a rival state from obtaining nuclear weapons: The omission of the obvious phrase “of its own” changes the story entirely.

Mainstream Media Discovers What Created ISIS - Global Warming!

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

After five years of intense fighting and destabilization raging across Syria, Western mainstream press has finally discovered the true cause of the so-called “civil war.” It turns out that all of the analysts in the alternative media suggesting that the situation in Syria was the result of a NATO destabilization campaign and foreign-backed invasion of terrorists in the form of al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and ISIS were wrong. In fact, even those mainstream analysts who have suggested that the foreign invasion was actually a legitimate rebellion were apparently mistaken.

Thankfully, the mainstream press has discovered the true cause of the Syrian crisis – global warming.

No, this is not a joke. Mainstream outlets are actually suggesting that climate change is responsible...

Senior BBC journalist Jeremy Bowen under fire for accusing Israeli PM of 'playing the Holocaust card'

The Middle East editor posted his comments on Twitter during the politician's speech at the U.S. Congress.

His tweet sparked outrage, with critics labelling the veteran journalist a 'slime bag' and calling his statement 'deplorable'.

But the senior journalist has responded to his attackers and said claims he is anti-Semetic are 'untrue and offensive'.

It comes just weeks after Mr Bowen's BBC colleague Tim Wilcox was accused of anti-Semitism over his coverage of the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris.

Mr Bowen made his claim after highlighting how Prime Minister Netanyahu had referenced U.S. professor Elie Wisel, a survivor the Auschwitz, Buna and Buchenwald Nazi concentration camps.

He wrote: '#NetanyahuSpeech He acknowledged Elie Wiesel in audience. Once again Netanyahu plays the holocaust card. don't repeat mistakes of the past'.

Intelligence Ops: Inventing a Parallel Universe

Oxford Dictionary defines a trial balloon as “a tentative measure taken or statement made to see how a new policy will be received.”

That’s a bland description. The measures taken aren’t always tentative. In fact, some may be quite aggressive: criminal prosecutions of the innocent; drone strikes; pronouncements of fake epidemics; bills curbing freedom; wars.

In other words, all intelligence ops and important government/corporate actions always include the trial-balloon aspect.

BLOOMBERG PROPAGANDA: Putin Is to Blame for Ukraine, But West Owes Ukraine Bailout

The anti-Russian ‘news’ organization Bloomberg, owned by the former Mayor of Wall Street, Michael Bloomberg, says in a March 3rd editorial about Ukraine, that “Only swift and radical debt relief can help the country out of its economic quagmire,” and that since such debt relief can’t likely be negotiated, “a complete write-off is what creditors will have to consider as their best alternative to a negotiated agreement.”

Big Pharma’s Mass Vaccination Agenda: Propaganda Assault on Informed Consent

Major US news media have presented a grossly distorted and misleading interpretation of vaccines and their relationship to public health since early January. These journalistic organs have suggested the recent measles outbreak in the Western US has been a crisis of monumental proportions.

This flagrant and cynical sensationalism has become a foundation for intense advocacy on behalf of the pharmaceutical corporate and regulatory cartel targeting patient informed consent—a founding principal of modern medical practice and personal freedom. Keeping in mind the close to 300 vaccine products now in the pharmaceutical industry’s pipeline,[1] closer analysis of “measles outbreak” press coverage suggests a conscious effort by corporate news media to virtually banish such notions and practices from the public mind. A news media dependent on over $1 billion in advertising dollars from big pharma must almost by necessity indulge their clients’ broader agenda.

BEX Alert!!! - "Rush Limbaugh: Netanyahu Everything Obama Is Not"

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh contrasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress Tuesday to President Barack Obama's State of the Union addresses, and concluded that Netanyahu came out on top.

"Benjamin Netanyahu today was everything Barack Obama is not. Everything," Limbaugh said as he opened his program moments after Netanyahu's speech concluded.

He noted that Netanyahu even pointed to a person in the gallery, as presidents have done for years. In Netanyahu's case, it was Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.

BEX ALERT - Fox News: Putin Gearing up for 'Stalin-like' Purges

Probably the most insane anti-Russia garbage we've ever seen

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree. FOX News, and indeed the American corporate media as a whole, have sold their souls to the warhawks. Maybe it is time to take all those FOX News talking heads that are so eager for war, given them rifles and parachutes, and drop them into Moscow, to see how deep their commitment to war really is!

The strongest reason to doubt that Putin had anything to do with the assassination of Nemtsov is the manner in which it was done, a shooting in public near the Kremlin; circumstances clearly intended to generate the maximum publicity.

Here in the United States the government gets rid of its enemies in small plane crashes, single car accidents, or by means of staged suicides. Putin, being former KGB, is just as knowledgeable about such sophisticated means of covering a murderer's tracks. Had Putin wanted Nemtsov dead, we would have heard that Nemtosov
had suddenly become very depressed over his failing political fortunes, and decided to kill himself.

Thus, Nemtsov's assassination, as public as it was, was done by others to frame on Putin, to destabilize Russia, not unlike the Kiev snipers who fired on both sides, then framed Yanukovich for it, to drive him from his elected office a year ago.

Who’s Afraid of an Open Debate? The Truth About the Commission on Presidential Debates

The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private corporation headed by the former chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties.

The result is a travesty riddled with sterile, non-contentious arguments which consistently exclude alternative voices that Americans want to hear.

Russia Today Should NOT Be Facing an Inquiry for ‘Anti-Western’ Comments

Broadcaster RT is facing an inquiry after one viewer, apparently so deeply offended by the allegedly ‘anti-Western’ views being broadcast, felt the need to complain to British TV and radio regulator Ofcom. The comments were made on Peter Lavelle‘s popular show CrossTalk, and supposedly breached impartiality standards.

RT’s CrossTalk is being anonymously accused of airing “anti-western views” during a December 23rd broadcast. So how is a media outlet supposed to regulate what its guests say, without outright censorship and blacklisting of certain subjects? And what can RT do when any British pundits or politicians who oppose Russia will not come on RT to discussion their view points. Suppose a memo went out in Westminster telling MPs not to go on RT? What then?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was the media impartial when they claimed Saddam had nuclear weapons and refused to interview anyone who doubted that claim?

I rest my case.

Netanyahu’s Big Gamble

In pursuing the strategy of preserving the perception of the Iranian threat in order to maintain the special relationship with the United States, Netanyahu is pursuing strategies that sabotage America’s own foreign policy interests...

By going over President Obama’s head to Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is taking a big gamble, apparently hoping that he can block any U.S. rapprochement with Iran and heighten tensions in the Middle East, a strategy that lacks both facts and logic, says Ted Snider.

Hannity Calls Obama ‘Neville Chamberlain’ And Netanyahu ‘Winston Churchill’

“Great American” Sean Hannity didn’t just side with Israel over his own country as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has figuratively spit in President Obama's face. No, Hannity went out of his way to demonize Obama in every possible way he could work into a nearly 10-minute segment.

It’s very touching to see Hannity’s sudden concern for Jews when you consider how he has previously palled around with the most vile of anti-Semites. But when there’s a contest between Hannity’s bigotry and his lust for conservative power – and maybe a new war for other people to shed blood in – well, it’s no contest.

But that doesn’t mean Hannity is above using his bigotry against President Obama. Hannity had at the ready a montage of Obama making such statements as, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam” as a blatant suggestion that Obama is too pro-Islam to love Israel.

What Christians Don’t Know About Israel

In the late 1970s, when I first went to Jerusalem, I was unaware that editors could and would classify "news" depending on who was doing what to whom. On my initial visit to Israel-Palestine, I had interviewed dozens of young Palestinian men. About one in four related stories of torture.

Israeli police had come in the night, dragged them from their beds and placed hoods over their heads. Then in jails the Israelis had kept them in isolation, besieged them with loud, incessant noises, hung them upside down and had sadistically mutilated their genitals. I had not read such stories in the U.S. media. Wasn't it news? Obviously, I naively thought, U.S. editors simply didn't know it was happening.

FLASHBACK 2004 - Bill O’Reilly Settles Lawsuit for Millions

Bill O’Reilly and the decades-younger producer who claimed he tormented her with unwanted phone sex reached an out-of-court settlement last night – putting a seeming end to an embarrassing sex scandal for the Fox News superstar. Sources told the Daily News that O’Reilly will have to pay Andrea Mackris at least $2 million – and possibly as much as $10 million. Under the deal, Mackris will drop the sexual harassment suit she filed against the talk-show host and Fox. O’Reilly and his Fox bosses, in turn, will forget about the extortion suit they filed against Mackris and her lawyer.

10 Reasons Washington Has War Fever

But as Dorothy told her dog, Toto, in the classic "Wizard of Oz" movie, "I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore," we're also not in the America of our Founding Fathers any more, either. Real capitalism and free markets simply do not exist any longer. A few powerful interests manipulate all markets, unlimited fiat money is a profitable franchise and we are attempting to police and control the entire world to maintain our leadership position held since the end of World War Two.

Today you are a fool to trust what the government or press claims is true, fair and balanced, as it's all just propaganda. Regulatory organizations exist only to protect the favored industries not the public, our legal system is a joke and all wars fought for democracy against evil are just looting expeditions against other nations out for profits, gain and natural resources.

FLASHBACK - Lemming Suicide MythDisney Film Faked Bogus Behavior

In 1958 Walt Disney produced "White Wilderness," part of the studio's "True Life Adventure" series. "White Wilderness" featured a segment on lemmings, detailing their strange compulsion to commit mass suicide.

According to a 1983 investigation by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer Brian Vallee, the lemming scenes were faked. The lemmings supposedly committing mass suicide by leaping into the ocean were actually thrown off a cliff by the Disney filmmakers. The epic "lemming migration" was staged using careful editing, tight camera angles and a few dozen lemmings running on snow covered lazy-Susan style turntable.

I actually learned of this back when I worked in Hollywood. While working on a project involving a lion, we bought copies of "True Life Adventure" raw footage from the Disney archives. Having grown up watching the edited finals, I was rather appalled at how the animals were actually being treated to get the shots the script called for!

FLASHBACK - Cutting Bush Down to Size: How Israel Gets Its Way in the U.S. Media

"I'll tell you why we didn't put those calls through," a disembodied voice boomed into the studio. A moment later the person I had seen answering phones in the control room stepped into the room. A hearty smiling man, he introduced himself as the station's owner.

"Those calls," he explained, "were from my biggest advertisers. They all called, one after another, threatening to pull all their advertising if I didn't take you off the air."

I looked around at the spotless equipment in the brand-new building. "You should have done it," I said. "I don't want you to lose your station on my account."

He threw back his head and laughed. "Don't worry about me," he said. "We have one of the oldest Jewish communities in the United States and it does a lot of good things here, but most of the big advertisers who just called live in one suburb and they sometimes lose touch with the rest of the city.

When Mike Wallace questioned Israeli story of ’90 massacre, he got called into the owner’s office

The immediate version of the bloody incident, as proclaimed by the Israeli government and accepted by almost all major media, was that the police had gunned down the Palestinians only after the Palestinians, egged on by their imams, began heaving rocks at Jews praying at the Western Wall, which lay below the confines of the Temple Mount.

Yet, as our “60 Minutes” piece showed — using footage actually shot at the time — the Palestinian charges were accurate: There were no Jews praying at the Wall when the rocks started sailing over…

The tsunami of protest hit us immediately…

Larry Tisch, a major American backer of Israel who also happened to own CBS, summoned Mike and “60 Minutes” Executive Producer Don Hewitt (also Jewish) to a fraught breakfast meeting to defend our report, fact by fact.

Mike and Don wound up in a shouting match at an A-list dinner party with real estate and publishing mogul Mort Zuckerman, literary agent Morton Janklow and Barbara Walters …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone know of a copy of Mike Wallace's original 60 Minutes story on the massacre?

What I left for this piece, however, is the fact that Rowland, her co-host, earned over $84,000 less than Trioli. There is presently nothing to indicate that the gap has been plugged. Both still host the same morning news program.

Bill O’Reilly busted again: Former colleagues dispute his LA riots story

O’Reilly originally claimed that he and his colleagues “were attacked by protesters” when covering the 1992 riots. “They were throwing bricks and stones at us,” O’Reilly told an online interviewer in 2006. “Concrete was raining down on us. The cops saved our butts that time.”

Earlier this week, he told broadcaster Hugh Hewitt: “We were attacked, we were attacked by protesters, where bricks were thrown at us.”

However, six people who covered the riots with O’Reilly for CBS’ Inside Edition at the time told the Guardian they did not recall an incident in which, as O’Reilly has claimed, “concrete was raining down on us” and “we were attacked by protesters.”

His CBS colleagues were reporters Bonnie Strauss, Tony Cox, Rick Kirkham, and crew members Theresa McKeown, Bob McCall, and Neil Antin.

“It didn’t happen. If it did, how come none of the rest of us remember it?” Kirkham said.

FLASHBACK - LA Times Reporter Caught Falsifying Articles with CIA

In violation of journalistic ethics and the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, former Los Angeles Times reporter Ken Dilanian allowed CIA handlers to edit his articles prior to publication and reported false information to manipulate his audience. Responding to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, the CIA released hundreds of pages documenting the agency’s dubious relationship with national security reporters. Operating under a glaring lack of oversight, the CIA has been exploiting establishment journalists since its inception.

Obama Administration Embeds "Government Researchers" To Monitor Media Organizations

Incredibly, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is set to roll out something called the Critical Information Needs study, which will embed government “researchers” into media organizations around the nation to make sure they are doing their job properly.

No this isn’t “conspiracy theory.” It is so real, and represents such a threat to the First Amendment, that a current FCC commissioner, Ajit Pai, recently wrote an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal, warning Americans of this scheme.

Now Bill O'Reilly is challenged over claims he 'saw nuns being executed in El Salvador'

Bill O'Reilly is facing new claims that he fabricated a story about witnessing the execution of four nuns in El Salvador during the country's civil war.

The allegations came days after liberal watchdog, Media Matters for America, questioned O'Reilly's report that in 1977 he witnessed the suicide of a friend of JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald, and Mother Jones disputed his coverage of the Falklands War.

O'Reilly claimed he has 'seen guys gun down nuns in El Salvador' and 'was in El Salvador and I saw nuns get shot in the back of the head' while working at CBS, according to Media Matters.

The Fox News man appeared to be referencing a well-known case of four nuns executed by the Salvadoran national guard in December 1980.

Experts in the El Salvadoran conflict have said that following the tragedy, there were no church people killed in the country for more than eight years.

The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme

The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring 'dynamite' interviews with Princess Diana - but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana's life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince's Charles 60th birthday.

With one of their own on the chopping block for lying to the public, mainstream media pundits Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, have suddenly become devout Bible scholars. The duo recently came out in defense of shamed NBC News anchor Brian Williams, claiming that he should be held to a "different standard" from everyone else, presumably because of his celebrity status.

Vladimir Putin ordered Russian special forces to steal MH370 and secretly landed it at huge space port in Kazakhstan, claims [CNN] expert

The missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 was hijacked on the orders of Vladimir Putin and secretly landed in Kazakhstan, an expert has claimed in a wild new theory.

Jeff Wise, a U.S. science writer who spearheaded CNN's coverage of the Boeing 777-200E, has based his outlandish theory on pings that the plane gave off for seven hours after it went missing, that were recorded by British telecommunications company Inmarsat.

BETWEEN STORYTELLING AND REPORTING A STORY ~~ A LONG BUT MUST READ

Every culture has stories, whether for entertainment, education, cultural preservation, or instilling moral values. Many times, stories address more than one goal simultaneously. These stories are sometimes repeated so often in a family or community that they take on the characteristics of a fairy tale, but not without retaining a hint of the underlying truths. The life cycle of a story from fact to fiction is a discussion for another time, but let’s bear in mind that when a story’s main medium of travel is oral, a mix of fact, improvisation and embellishment are usually present in the final result.

Hillary Clinton’s War on Women

Hillary Clinton portrays herself as a champion of women in the workforce, but women working for her in the U.S. Senate were paid 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of her Senate years’ salary data.

During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.

The analysis compiled the annual salaries paid to staffers for an entire fiscal year of work from the years 2002 to 2008. Salaries of employees who were not part of Clinton’s office for a full fiscal year were not included. Because the Senate fiscal year extends from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, Clinton’s first year in the Senate, which began on Jan. 3, 2001, was also not included in the analysis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all women bandying about the word "inevitability" when discussing Hillary's potential run for the Presidency in 2016, please think again; she is not the champion of workplace equality you have allowed yourself to be hoodwinked in to believing she is.

With Hillary as President, we will see more wars, more income inequality, more US poverty, and infinitely less freedom of the press, particularly for the independent media, which she despises with almost missionary fervor.

A fabulous smackdown of O’Reilly

In a way, it’s impossible to win a debate with O’Reilly because he is not bound by reality. In response to the article, he told Fox News’ media reporter, Howard Kurtz, "Nobody was on the Falklands and I never said I was on the island, ever." Yet our article included video of O’Reilly saying in 2013, "I was in a situation one time, in a war zone in Argentina, in the Falklands, where my photographer got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete. And the army was chasing us." Note the words "war zone" and "in the Falklands."

Who needs facts? Associated Press caught in yet another bizarre denial of mercury in vaccines

It seems that even Associated Press writers have been so utterly propagandized by the corrupt vaccine industry that they can't tell truth from lies anymore. An AP story authored by Gosia Wozniacka and published yesterday on Yahoo News repeats an oft-repeated vaccine industry lie, claiming that mercury has been "phased out" of all vaccines.

"The CDC has phased out a mercury-containing preservative in vaccines as a precautionary measure," claims the Associated Press story. Unfortunately, that's simply not true. The claim is utterly false, even according to the CDC itself.

As Natural News has extensively documented in articles like this one, even the CDC openly admits mercury is still used in vaccines. In fact, the CDC vaccine additives page, found here, repeats this admission that mercury is still used in vaccines.

35 things the media reported as FACTS that were later found to be total lies

Truth is the greatest enemy of the state, and the purpose of the state-run media is to broadcast a sufficient quantity of lies to suffocate the truth and thereby protect state interests.

As Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels once explained:

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

Here are 35 huge lies the mainstream media repeatedly reported as "facts" that we now know to be total lies:

BEX ALERT - Dubai skyscraper: How are supertall constructions built to withstand fires?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article, written by a writer whose linked-in account says he is just out of school, is intended to explain away all the tall buildings that burn far worse than the World Trade Towers, yet do not collapse, by claiming that post 9-11, buildings are built to resist fire. This is nonsense. Buildings have always been built to resist fires and even airplane impacts going back to 1945 when a B-25 hit the Empire State Building (which did not collapse).

And in point of fact, the Dubai fire is attributed to a flammable cladding material which was held responsible for another massive fire in that city, putting the lie to the claim that modern buildings are built more fire-proof than before 9-11.

David Letterman imagines 10 creepy things Biden whispered to Ash Carter’s wife

Vice President Biden's propensity for whispering in the ears of women is now late-night joke fodder. David Letterman counted down the top 10 things Biden whispered into Stephanie Carter's ear this week after her husband, Ash Carter, was sworn in as defense secretary.

Among them, "Let me know when this gets weird," and "Ever heard of a second Second Lady?"

Biden has a well-documented history of being quite touchy-feely, but it's only recently started to become a recurring meme.

I agree Biden is acting inappropriately in public. However I have to wonder if the sudden media attention is a concerted effort to "discourage" Biden from challenging Hillary at the 2016 primary.

On his television show, the top-rated cable news anchor declared that the American press isn't "half as responsible as the men who forged the nation." He bemoaned the supposed culture of deception within the liberal media, and he proclaimed that the Williams controversy should prompt questioning of other "distortions" by left-leaning outlets. Yet for years, O'Reilly has recounted dramatic stories about his own war reporting that don't withstand scrutiny—even claiming he acted heroically in a war zone that he apparently never set foot in.

The German media is between a rock and hard place. That it seems to be infiltrated by US and German intelligence services which enforce a rigid, propagandistic line, is widely recognized and openly discussed.

But it has little room for manoeuvre. Either it continues to push propaganda, and discredit itself, or it starts to be more objective, and risk swinging public opinion against US interests. The stakes couldn’t be higher, because Germany’s position on the Ukraine crisis is the deciding factor in EU policy on this crucial issue.

Focus on the network evening news. This is where the staging is done well.

First, we have the image itself, the colors in foreground and background, the blend of restful and charged hues. The anchor and his/her smooth style.

Then we have the shifting of venue from the studio to reporters in the field, demonstrating the reach of coverage: the planet. As if this equals authenticity.

Actually, those reporters in the field rarely dig up information on location. A correspondent standing on a rooftop in Cairo could just as well be positioned in a bathroom in a Las Vegas McDonald’s. His report would be identical.

BACKFIRE: How the vaccine industry lost the propaganda war, alienated the public and stirred up suspicion of the entire medical profession

The vaccine establishment has a horrible conundrum. It desperately wants everyone to voluntarily buy its for-profit vaccine products, but it has failed to convince everyone that its products are safe and effective... or even necessary in many cases.

The problem is made even worse by the fact that the products themselves really aren't as safe and effective as we've all been told. Flu shots still contain mercury, a neurotoxic heavy metal. Some vaccine inserts still admit they are backed by no clinical trials. The U.S. government really has quietly paid out nearly $3 billion in compensation awards to families of children who were irrefutably damaged by vaccines. A top CDC scientist really did confess to taking part in scientific fraud at the CDC, covering up data linking vaccines to autism.

America’s most prominent Muslim says The Atlantic is doing PR for ISIS

The letter is an extended exegesis, heavily salted with quotes from the Koran and the Hadith, arguing point by point about the nature of jihad, the slaughtering of innocents, the taking of slaves, and other not-so-savory elements of the distant past — and in the past they should remain, the text argues. It makes the case not only that ISIS was wrong to commit horrific acts of violence in modern times, but that it was interpreting Islamic law incorrectly to justify such acts.

ISIS not only doesn’t represent Muslims. It isn’t, in fact, Islamic at all, the document argues.

First, Ian Pannell, international BBC corespondent, implicitly accuses rebels of a "scorched earth policy".

The Putin-Did-It Conspiracy Theory

he original falsehood behind the Iraq War was that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and intended to use them against America either directly or by giving them to al-Qaeda. The opening lie about the Ukraine crisis was that Russian President Vladimir Putin instigated the conflict as part of some Hitlerian plan to conquer much of Europe.

Yet, while the Hussein-WMD claim was hard for the common citizen to assess because it was supposedly supported by U.S. intelligence information that was kept secret, the Putin-Ukraine lie collapses under the most cursory examination based simply of what’s publicly known and what makes sense.

Nevertheless, the New York Times – much as it did when it was falsely reporting breathlessly about “aluminum tubes” for Iraq’s non-existent nuclear weapons program – continues to promote U.S. government propaganda about Ukraine as fact and dismisses any rational assessment of the situation as crazy.

BBC Admits Peshawar Victim Photo is alleged Sandy Hook Victim Noah Pozner

Yesterday we had two reports about the photo of Noah Pozner, who was reportedly killed at Sandy Hook, being circulated as a victim in the recent Taliban attack in Pakistan. Though the American mainstream media is not covering the story, and seemingly not interested in doing so, the BBC did acknowledge the story with a brief footnote in an article about a child's bloody shoe (which has also been found to be misrepresentative of the attacks). The bloody shoe photo was taken at another place and time.

Here is what the BBC had to say about Noah Pozner's photo:

Meanwhile, another picture has been circulating online of victims of the Peshawar massacre – but the montage of images includes the photo of a young boy, Noah Pozner, who died in the Sandy Hook massacre in the United States in 2012.

Mr. Simon was a passenger in a livery cab that sideswiped a Mercedes-Benz sedan stopped at a red light on 12th Avenue near West 30th Street about 6:45 p.m., the police said. The cab then careened into the median, crashing into the metal stanchions separating the northbound and southbound traffic lanes. Mr. Simon was taken to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

JON STEWART ~~ ONE LAST DISS AGAINST NETANYAHU BEFORE THEY BOTH BECOME HISTORY

The controversy over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation to speak to Congress, which Democrats see as a Republican ploy to undermine President Obama’s negotiations with Iran, is tragicomic. But the mess of behind the scenes bickering and childish insults are, improbably, threatening both US-Israeli relations and the very delicate international effort to resolve the Iranian nuclear crisis.

So naturally, Jon Stewart is the perfect person to take on this ridiculous mess, which he did during Thursday night’s episode of The Daily Show.

Conservatives Dance On Grave Of ISIL Hostage: 'Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel B**ch'

Not all conservatives used the death of American hostage Kayla Mueller to highlight the brutality of the Islamic State — some decided to focus their disgust on the 26-year-old's humanitarian work for Palestinians.

"No tears for the newly-departed Kayla Mueller, the ISIS hostage whose parents confirmed today that she is dead," conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel wrote on Tuesday, under the headline, "Kayla Mueller: Dead ISIS Hostage Was Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel Bitch."

"Mueller was a Jew-hating, anti-Israel piece of crap who worked with HAMAS and helped Palestinians harass Israeli soldiers and block them from doing their job of keeping Islamic terrorists out of Israel," she wrote.

Schlussel condemned Mueller's humanitarian work in the "so-called 'West Bank'" to prevent the demolition of "terrorists' 'houses.'"

Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman apologises for 'misunderstanding' after mosque CCTV contradicts her claim that she was 'ushered out'

She claimed to have received a less than friendly welcome at her local mosque – and sparked outrage when she shared the experience on Twitter.

But new evidence appears to contradict allegations by Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman that she was ‘ushered out the door’ by Muslims during a visit.

CCTV footage was released yesterday showing that instead of being ejected from the place of worship, she left on her own.

Obama still argues that we can't have transparency or the terrorists will win

The Obama administration, self-described Most Transparent Administration in History™, is currently engaged in a multi-pronged legal battle to prevent an iota more transparency related to illegal torture. If there was any lingering hopes that the President might use the last two years of his final term in office to bring some accountability to the despicable actions of the CIA or the US military, it appears that he will instead continue to use the power of the office to fight to keep them hidden.

Later today, the government will showcase its latest suppression effort, as the Justice Department will urge a federal judge in New York to keep secret hundreds of photos of torture from Abu Ghraib prison from almost a decade ago. President Obama once promised to release the photos, only to reverse himself months after coming into office – and he’s since been fighting for years to keep them secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absence of) surprise here.

History will ultimately judge President Obama as one of the most profound disappointments of American leadership in the 21st century.

And despite his faux populist persona, he is no less a slave to the global corporate and banking institutions than are his Republican counterparts.

It doesn't matter any more which of the two parties gets elected nationally; what wins is more corporate wealth; more personal wealth inequality; and more wars.

USA TODAY JOINS FORCES WITH CHARLIE

Below is a cartoon, by Cameron Cardow of the Ottawa Citizen, that USA Today selected as its daily editorial cartoon for February 2. It’s not a terribly hard cartoon to parse: Islam is the modern equivalent of Nazism, and threatens a new Holocaust. The cartoon lists entities that have nothing in common with each other aside from their connection to Islam–political movements like Hezbollah and Hamas, who have been the targets of far more violence than they are responsible for, along with groups like ISIS and Boko Haram, terrorist groups whose victims are primarily Muslim. Hezbollah and ISIS are actually engaged in intense warfare with each other.

He scolded Democrats for their criticism of the prime minister, arguing that Netanyahu is a “spokesperson for Jews worldwide.”

When co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Scarborough had actually had the opposite opinion just days before, he got nasty.

Maureen Dowd: NBC execs were warned a year ago that Brian Williams was 'constantly inflating his biography'

NBC News Staffers ‘Panic’ Over Executive Decision to Stand By Brian Williams

Tom Brokaw is the highest-profile dissenter to call for the ouster of Brian Williams over his stolen valor helicopter story, but he’s not the only one. According to insider accounts, Brokaw said that lesser journalists and producers would have been instantly terminated for the kind of false reporting Williams turned in. This point does not appear to have escaped the lower-level staffers of NBC News, as can be seem from some heated behind-the-scenes chatter captured by the New York Post:

NBC brass hasn’t been talking to lower-level employees about the situation, leaving people in a panic, the insider said.

“NBC bosses don’t understand how serious this is. Nobody in a leadership position is talking to the troops. Nobody has addressed it,” the source said.

One longtime NBC employee who has worked with Williams on several occasions had a few dirty words to describe the celebrated anchor, calling him a “real pompous piece of s–t.”

Is the West about to sell out Ukraine to Vladimir Putin?

As Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande fly to Russia, they will need to carefully gauge the psychology of a man who has brought Europe to the brink of war

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As usual, the Telegraph has it totally wrong. The man who has brought Europe to the edge of war is Barack Obama, whose administration has admitted "brokering" and funding to the tune of five billion dollars the coup that ousted Ukraine's elected government of Yanukovich and installed the Poroshenko Junta, triggering chaos in Ukraine. Merkel and Hollande are talking with Putin (without consulting the White House that started this mess) because France and Germany were major battlegrounds for the first two World Wars and understandably are reluctant to allow a third on their territory.

I wonder if the Telegraph will now claim to have been shot down in a helicopter in Iraq!

Wall Street Pays Bankers to Work in Government and It Doesn't Want Anyone to Know

Citigroup is one of three Wall Street banks attempting to keep hidden their practice of paying executives multimillion-dollar awards for entering government service. In letters delivered to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over the last month, Citi, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley seek exemption from a shareholder proposal, filed by the AFL-CIO labor coalition, which would force them to identify all executives eligible for these financial rewards, and the specific dollar amounts at stake. Critics argue these “golden parachutes” ensure more financial insiders in policy positions and favorable treatment toward Wall Street.

“As shareholders of these banks, we want to know how much money we have promised to give away to senior executives if they take government jobs,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in a statement. “It’s a simple question, but the banks don’t want to answer it. What are they trying to hide?”

The Cowardly and Despicable American Presstitutes

So the question is: Why are the presstitutes all over some hapless journalist rather than holding accountable the Great Liars, John Kerry and Barak Obama?

The answer is: It is costless to the presstitutes to try to destroy, for totally insignificant reasons–perhaps just for the pleasure of it, like “American Sniper” killing people for fun–one of their own, but they would be fired if they hold Kerry and Obama accountable, and they know it. But they have to get someone, so they eat their own.

A democracy without an honest media cannot exist. In America democracy is a facade behind which operates every evil inclination of mankind. During the past 14 years the American people have supported governments that have invaded, bombed, or droned seven countries, killing, maiming, and displacing millions of people for no reason other than profit and hegemonic power. There is scant sign that this has caused very many Americans sleepless nights or a bad conscience.

How Brian Williams Almost “Chinookered” Us

His problem—and NBC’s problem and the CFR’s problem and a lot of other people’s problem—is that nobody believes this faulty memory excuse, and why should they? Would you ever confuse the automobile accident that you came upon some time after its occurrence with the one you experienced yourself, even if it was a dozen years—or a half a century—later? He has now compounded his lie by lying about how he came to tell it. Worse than that, NBC as a news organization has now joined in the lying.

What is a Conspiracy Theory? What is the Truth?

The ‘big lie’ has now becomes the truth … and the truth has become a ‘conspiracy theory’.

Those who are committed to the Truth are categorized as “Terrorists”.

According to Paul Craig Roberts (2011), the conspiracy theory concept “has undergone Orwellian redefinition”…

A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps….

In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.

Fiction becomes fact.

Investigative journalism has been scrapped.

The cowardly and despicable American presstitutes

We have been hearing from high US government officials, including the president himself, for months and months about Russian tank columns and troops entering Ukraine. The Russian government denies this steadfastly, but, of course, we cannot trust the now-demonized Russians. We are not allowed to believe them, because they are positioned as the Enemy, and good patriotic Americans never believe the Enemy.

But how can we help but believe the Russians? If all these Russian tank columns and troops that have allegedly been pouring into Ukraine were real, Washington's puppet government in Kiev would have fallen sometime last year, and the conflict would be over. Anyone with a brain knows this.

Mind-control media: Brian Williams, fake science, and the reality egg

Objectivity. What more could you want? What could be more objective than science? What could be less open to dispute? Who could be more authoritative than a scientist? What could influence public opinion more thoroughly than a whole group of scientists, an establishment of scientists, backed by the government?

Notice that when a news anchor takes an unimpeachable statement from a scientist, they both sound like scientists. The double whammy.

It impresses the rubes and yokels and even the well-educated viewers.

This is no accident.

It’s a system of persuasion.

Iran – if at first you don’t succeed – try, try again.

I’ve watched for over a decade as Israelis and their minions in the West have tried everything in their power to bring down Iran. Time and again they’ve failed. But their repeated failures haven’t deterred them one bit. I have to hand it to them. They are determined. If at first they don’t succeed, they try and try again. This time, through a young man and his passion for dance.

Brian Williams admits that his story of coming under fire while in Iraq was false

NBC News anchor Brian Williams conceded on Wednesday that a story he had told about being under fire while covering the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was false.

Williams said he was not aboard a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire and forced down — a story he retold as recently as last week during a televised tribute to a retired soldier during a New York Rangers hockey game.

On “NBC Nightly News” Wednesday evening, Williams read a 50-second statement apologizing for his characterization of the episode.

US Measles Hoax: CDC, WHO, Merck Documents Prove VACCINATED Are Spreading Virus

In early 2015, Big Pharma has declared war on vaccine dissent. In case you haven’t noticed over the last two weeks, US media outlets are running a highly coordinated and sensationalized propaganda campaign to hype-up a “national measles outbreak”, while demonizing any American parents that dare to question the efficacy and safety of any mass-produced vaccine products.

The US media’s ‘mandatory vaccination’ promotional campaign was successfully launched nationwide following an “outbreak” incident at Walt Disneyland theme park brand on January 7th. See Disney’s timeline of events here.

Disneyland is a popular and recognizable children’s brand, and this was crucial in propelling successful headlines that boldly declared, “Disneyland Measles Outbreak”. Event the President endorsed the campaign stating, “There is every reason to get vaccinated — there aren’t reasons to not,” Barack Obama told Today on Monday.

Why the FDA Should be Charged with Murder

If you worked for a federal agency that was killing people at the rate of 100,000 a year, every year, like clockwork, and if you knew it, wouldn’t you feel compelled to say or do something about it?

At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up.

American Viper -- Are Americans Too Stupid to be Free?

Watching American Sniper was an ordeal. The Clint Eastwood move is a repugnant manipulative psy op that is turning Americans into unthinking killers. Remember, the Nazis were very popular in Germany.

The movie's underlying premise is that soldiers like sniper Chris Kyle were defending home and hearth by murdering, maiming and displacing millions of innocent Iraqis. Courageous Iraqis who defended their country were "savages" who needed to be stopped before they attack the US, as on 9-11.

"If we don't fight them there, we'll have to fight them here," Kyle says. In one scene, Kyle kills a woman and a child who are about to throw a grenade at a convoy. These don't look like terrorists. They look like courageous patriots. - See more at: http://henrymakow.com/2015/02/american-viper.html#sthash.KcKJ3sbi.dpuf

Russian aggression and the BBC’s drums of nuclear war

The drums of war are beating on the BBC and other mass media, writes Oliver Tickell – naked propaganda about fictitious ‘Russian aggression’ intended to soften us up for a war that could wipe out life on Earth.
We must refuse to fall for the endlessly repeated lies, and tell our politicians that our highest priority of all is peace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My reply to BBC and indeed all corporate media. Feel free to use as a template for your own emails.

Corporate media assured us that the USS Main was sunk by a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, even though Captain Sigsbee reported the cause as an on-board fire. This story of a Spanish mine by the corporate media allowed President McKinley to trick the American people into the Spanish American war. An investigation carried out by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, the father of America's Nuclear Navy, confirmed Sigbee's report. There had been no Spanish mine.

Corporate media assured us that the Lusitania was not carrying weapons when it was sunk by a German U-Boat, even though the German government had taken out ads in the New York papers warning passengers not to sail on that ship. This story of the sinking of an innocent passenger ship allowed President Woodrow Wilson to trick the American people into World War 1 and divert the war from the original belligerents, Austria-Hungary and Serbia, into a war against Germany. In the 1980s, divers entered the hold of the Lusitania and confirmed it had been smuggling weapons of war to Britain.

Corporate media assured us that North Vietnam launched a torpedo attack against the USS Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin in August 4th, 1964. Even though Captain Herrick reported that the sonar detection of torpedoes by the Maddox had been an error by an inexperienced sonar operator, the claim of a torpedo attack allowed President Johnson to trick Congress into escalating the Vietnam war.

Corporate media assured is Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons. Need I say more?

So why would anyone believe the corporate media today when they assure us Russia has invaded Ukraine?

I know it’s not PETA’s job to fight for women’s rights, but you’d think that an organization whose central belief is ostensibly that all life is equally valuable would posit women and men as equally valuable, too. (Which is laughable anyway; they not only believe in kill shelters, they run one of the largest kill shelters in the country and kill animals they can’t place faster than other kill shelters.) But they don’t, and they have a long history of selling women as only sexually valuable and normalizing violence toward women in their ads.

Police Push For Anti-Cop Comments To Be Legally Considered ‘Hate Speech’

The National Fraternal Order of Police is pushing for legislation to classify anti-police comments as “hate speech.” The 300,000 strong FOP says that police officers should fall under the Congressional hate crimes statute, and should thus be regarded as a protected minority.

This bold move comes on the heels of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who were killed in the line of duty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very slippery slope, folks.

And please remember: the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the government's "Contract With America".

What happens to a society when the expression of truth and logic becomes criminalized?!?

What happens to a society when allegations of police brutality are not allowed to be proven true because the truth on that brutality, logically documented, has become "hate speech" or "hate information"?!?

I never would want to see a good police officer hurt in any way; and a good police officer is someone who understands, and really gets, what the phrase "to protect and serve" really means.

But having said that, I would strongly suggest that Mr. Canterbury, the head of the police union, think very seriously about how police are being trained to use excessive force in 21st century America.

There is the continuing nightmare for the people of Albuquerque , New Mexico, concerning the impunity with which their police officers kill and maim, particularly the homeless and mentally ill. This very much has to do with their training, and leadership. As reported in Alternet.org in December of last year:

From across town, an off-duty cop named Sean Wallace heard the alert blare through his scanner, then barreled over to the scene before a crisis intervention officer could arrive. Without provocation, Wallace opened fire, killing Alan Gomez with a high-powered rifle as he entered the house through a screen door. The troubled young man was holding nothing in his hand but a plastic spoon. With his death, Alan Gomez joined the list of at least 27 people killed by Albuquerque police officers since 2010, and the more than 40 wounded by gunfire. In a city of just over 540,000, the body count is staggering. Indeed, the rate of officer-involved shootings by Albuquerque police is eight times that of the NYPD and two times higher than in Chicago, a megalopolis with one of the steepest levels of violent crime in the country. A damning report released this April by the Department of Justice concluded that the “Albuquerque police department engages in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional use of deadly force.” It went on to accuse members of the department of having “shot and killed civilians who did not pose an imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death to the officers or others.” The report singled out Wallace for killing Gomez when "no one's life was in danger and an APD negotiator was on his way to the scene.''

I would suggest, very soberly, to Mr. Canterbury, that these incidents, and incidents like them around the country are no accident; they are a deliberate result of the training these officers have received.

Couple this with the reality that many American peace officers have been, and are being trained my members, or former members, of the IDF, and you have a recipe for multiple human rights and civil rights disasters.

VIDEO: Birds of a Feather: John McCain Defends Henry Kissinger

Yet, while McCain’s support of the Vietnam war, Iraq War, Syrian War, Libyan war, and virtually every war that was ever waged and those that ever will be waged upon the face of the earth, has resulted in the death of millions of people, McCain found himself in the presence of one of the true kings of killing in Henry Kissinger.

Indeed, Kissinger is one of the true living figures whose feet most psychopathic killers the world over still long to kneel at.

Kissinger’s direction of the Chilean coup, Vietnam war, Cambodian andLaotian tragedies, and his famousNational Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200) has earned him a special place amongst the world’s most effective mass murders, although admittedly not the most widely known.

And please remember: Kissinger, like Obama, was a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Uh.... "peace" for whom, please?!?!?

‘NYT’ perpetuates myth Israel was ‘fighting for its very survival’ during 1967 war

Yes, Israeli soldiers, like much of the world, believed at the time that Israel faced an existential threat, as Arab armies poised on Israel’s borders while Radio Cairo broadcast bloodcurdling threats. But military and intelligence leaders in both Tel Aviv and Washington knew better.

Consider the testimony of Prime Minister Menachem Begin, a member of the cabinet in June 1967:

“In June 1967, we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.”

THE HOLOCAUST WAS NOT ‘KOSHER’ IN HOLLYWOOD DURING HITCHCOCK’S TIME

Just as films depicting the suffering of the Palestinian people are not on Hollywood’s ‘must see listings’, the European Holocaust was treated the same way in 1945. That is until last night when a documentary by Alfred Hitchock showing the horrors of the Holocaust finally sees the light of day on Tuesday night – 70 years after it was made and shelved for political reasons. The documentary is the focus of a new film by director Andre Singer, called “Night Will Fall”, which was to be aired around the world by HBO on Tuesday night to mark International Holocaust Memorial Day.

Hollywood uses ‘American Sniper’ to destroy history & create myth

The moral depravity into which the US is sinking is shown by American Sniper glorifying the exploits of a racist killer receiving six Oscar nominations, whereas ‘Selma’ depicting Martin Luther King’s struggle against racism has been largely ignored.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We saw the same thing back in 2010 when the pro-war movie "Hurt Locker" won six Oscars while the anti-corporate-war "Avatar" was ignored.

Of course, being in the industry, I learned that the Oscars are driven by politics and money when Stargate was removed from the nominations by the Academy's "Blue Ribbon Committee" to clear the way for "Speed" to win the Oscar for visual effects.
