Leaked emails expose Sony concern over report its cameras used in Gaza attack

Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chair Amy Pascal was proud to add her name to a letter with some 200 other Hollywood big wigs supporting Israel last summer in the midst of its bombardment of the occupied Gaza Strip.

But leaked emails released recently by Wikileaks show that behind the scenes company executives were worried about reports associating the Sony brand with the Israeli assault that left more than 2,200 people, 547 of them children, dead.

On 19 August, Stevan Bernard, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s head of corporate security wrote to David Diamond, executive assistant to company chairman and CEO Michael Lynton, to inform him about a media report “that Sony CCTV’s [sic] were being used as a part of the guidance system for Israeli rockets that were bombing Gaza.”

“In fact,” Bernard wrote, “they held up part of the camera housing for all to see.”

Biased Reporting on Syria in the Service of War

It has been confirmed that TV journalist Richard Engel’s kidnapping/rescue in norther Syria in late 2012 was a hoax. NBC management knew the story was probably false but proceeded to broadcast it anyway.

There are at least two good things about “Engelgate”.

Iran urges India, China & Russia to counter NATO missile system

Iran has announced its readiness to cooperate with Russia, China and India on the issue of NATO’s missile shield and related threats from the military bloc, the head of its defense ministry said in Moscow.

“I’d like to support the idea of developing multifaceted defense cooperation between China, Iran, India and Russia to counter NATO eastwards expansion and installing a missile shield in Europe,” Hossein Dehghan said on Thursday, at an international security conference in Moscow.

Hours later Dehghan was cited by RIA Novosti as saying that Russia, China and Iran may hold tri-party defense talks.

“We discussed certain aspects of regional security. It was proposed to hold a trilateral meeting of Russia, Iran and China,” Dehghan said after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

Conference on the Israel Lobby—Press Blackout at the Press Club

So, where were the reporters of the mainstream media? Where was C-SPAN during a week when Congress was on a holiday and their cameras were not preoccupied by Capitol Hill activities—its foremost priority? Apparently, the American people were only to see and hear the extreme views of AIPAC that do not even command the support of a majority of American Jews who do favor a two-state solution, along with a majority of Arab-Americans.

Organized by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, which was launched about thirty years ago by a British Army Officer who served in World War II and two retired U.S. Ambassadors to countries in the Middle East (wrmea.org), the day-long program at the prestigious National Press Club should have been intriguing to reporters. After all, are they not interested in important, taboo-challenging presentations on a critical dimension of U.S. foreign and military policy?

UK General Elections: Breakaway SNP strikes fear into Westminster parties

Cameron or Miliband for prime minister – warmongering toff or socialist nonentity? And with whose coalition help? That’s the bleak choice for British voters.

For the Conference on the Israel Lobby—Press Blackout at the Press Club

Following the heavy coverage of AIPAC’s (the virulently pro-Israeli government lobby) multi-day annual Washington convention in March, the mainstream media might have been interested for once in covering alternative viewpoints like those discussed at the April 10th conference “The Israel Lobby: Is it Good for the US? Is it Good for Israel?”. Fairness and balance in reporting should produce at least some coverage of such an event.

How Trustworthy Are U.S. & Western ‘News’ Media?

During the days of the Soviet Union, and in all dictatorial countries, the ‘news’ media were and are actually propaganda-media, which filter out information that the aristocracy (the people holding the real power, which in the Soviet Union were the Communist Party bosses) don’t want the public to know. Is the United States like that now?

Flashback 6 Years Ago Today! 'InfoWarrior' Jason Bermas: Jew Critics Are 'Anti-Semites' Who Should Hang Or Electrocute Themselves

Six years ago today, I was listening to an Infowars broadcast and heard fill-in host and Alex Jones protégé Jason Bermas excoriate a caller for daring to mention the word Jew on air. Bermas went on an insane rant, telling the caller "Look man. It's not a Jewish conspiracy OK? Get over it... Give me a break dude, please go hang yourself. There's somebody I wouldn't mind with a little population control. The question is, if you're asking that question, why are you still breathing? I mean why haven't you really just taken a toaster oven and thrown it in the bathtub with yourself and had a party? Because that's what you need to do." I broke the story, which prompted Bermas & Jones to respond to my article on air the next day, with the original caller calling back in. It caused quite a stir in the "patriot community", prompting Jeff Rense, Texe Marrs & many others to sharply criticize Bermas, who seemed to disappeared from the scene soon thereafter.

Engel wrote that he and his producer dug into the story more and discovered that the kidnappers who took Engel and his news team captive for five days in 2012 lied to them and said they were tied to Syrian President Bashar Assad. They are now believed to be part of a Sunni militant group, not affiliated with Shiite forces loyal to Assad.

They convinced Engel they were pro-Assad Shiites, and NBC ran with it despite clear indications that it was a ruse.

Christopher Bollyn on “Solving 9/11 ends the war” on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio (audio)

On this day in history, April 15th, 1912, the Titanic sank. Today’s guest Christopher Bollyn, author of Solving 9/11, says the American ship of state is sailing towards doom – and the only way to turn it around is by facing the truth about 9/11.

Christopher just returned to his home in Europe after a “Solving 9/11 Ends the War” speaking tour in the US. (I will be speaking in some of the same venues during next week’s We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo book tour.) We discuss America’s, and the world’s, gradual awakening to the truth about 9/11 – and the possibility that Netanyahu and the neocons could launch another huge false flag to torpedo the Iran nuclear agreement and cover their 9/11 tracks via a wider war that could go global and nuclear.

How Reliable Is Reuters?

People see their own nation, and foreign nations, through the filter of the press that’s available to them; so, if that filter is systematically distorting (distorting in ways that most of the others similarly do), then democracy cannot function, public opinion can be manipulated and warped; and wars might even start that shouldn’t — something Americans have tragically been experiencing lots of, during recent decades, such as when we invaded Iraq in 2003 (just to cite the most famous of many examples).

BEX Alert!!! - "Germany's response to Nazism on trial as man, 93, faces 300,000 charges"

BERLIN — Nearly 70 years after World War II ended in Europe with Nazi Germany's surrender on May 7, 1945, what's likely to be the final criminal chapter of that horrific period is about to unfold in a small German town.

Beginning next Tuesday, Oskar Groening, who's better known as "the accountant of Auschwitz," goes on trial for what in any other context would seem an impossible crime: 300,000 counts of accessory to murder.

Innocence is not really an issue, though guilt will be: Groening has freely admitted that he stood on the unloading ramps of the most infamous of the Nazi death camps and counted the cash confiscated from the Hungarian Jews who spilled out of the box cars, headed for selection. What the court will decide is whether that made him an accessory to their murders in Auschwitz's gas chambers.

How corporate media pushes immunizations while censoring data that would expose vaccine dangers

The way the mainstream media continues to hype this latest measles "outbreak" is appalling, especially considering that measles is a benign condition not much different from chicken pox or the common cold in terms of mortality risk. Everywhere you look these days, the corporate spin machine is hounding people to get vaccinated in order to prevent disease outbreaks, but from where does all this unsubstantiated fear-mongering stem?

It can all be traced right back to the pharmaceutical industry, which maintains under its umbrella of control several powerful means of disseminating its propaganda to the masses. This includes television news, print magazines and online periodicals, nearly all of which receive a bulk of their sponsorships from, you guessed it: the drug and vaccine industries.

Media Watchdog Fair.org Is Taking Western Journos Down Over Lazy Russia Reporting

This first piece I want to look at picks apart the ‘Kremlin troll army’ narrative that is so loved by BuzzFeed, Politico, The Daily Beast etc.

The narrative goes like this: Every time you see a “pro-Russia” or even a semi “anti-NATO” comment somewhere on the interwebs, it was written by a paid troll. Putin sends personal checks. If you post more than one thousand comments in a week, you get a signed t-shirt etc.

I have to hand it to the US for this one, it’s a good strategy.

If Washington can get your average Joe and Julia to believe that every even mildly pro-Russia comment on the internet must have come from some sleep-deprived, slave-driven brainwashed starving Russian in a St. Petersburg warehouse, then they don’t have to worry.

RELIGIOUS FANATICISM IS A HUGE FACTOR IN AMERICANS’ SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL

Almost half of all Americans want to support Israel even if its interests diverge from the interests of their own country. Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide. It’s the ultimate violation of George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address warning that “nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded. … The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave.”

BEX Alert!!! - "Defying death in the Holocaust for a sister"

Suzanna Braun, who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust and defied death at least three times, believes she survived because of her determination to save her sister -- and some divine intervention.

The first time she beat death was sheer luck.

Suzanna was just two weeks shy of 16 when she, her sister Agi and her parents were rounded up in their hometown of Kosice, in what is now Slovakia, and sent to the Polish death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. . .

. . . Locked behind a steel door with soap in their hands, some women waited for water. Others, who had heard the rumours, began panicking.

It was only when the doors opened they realised they had cheated death.

"They were out of gas," she told AFP in an interview as Israel began marking Holocaust memorial day and 70 years since the end of the war.

Russia bashers eat crow as Putin wins Time Magazine poll

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Western media did their best to hide Putin’s stratospheric popularity in their assigned propaganda task of demonizing Russia and Putin over the Ukrainian Western coup , replacing the Iran nuclear weapons threat hoax with the new Russian Bear threat one.

The biggest threat to our national security comes from treasonous cliques within our own ranks and their recent marriage over that last decade into the international corporate crime syndicates.

We are not really biased here at VT. It is just a simple observation to us… it is Putin and Lavrov all the way. No one can touch them and they own this piece of history, something that the spinmeisters cannot lay a glove on.

TIME Magazine Invaded by Kremlin Troll Army

Western media campaign to demonize Putin has failed to convince its target audience. The Western public are not buying the hysterical political agenda.
The iconic current affairs TIME magazine follows this week’s news that Russian President Vladimir Putin came top of the TIME 100 readers’ poll.

Western publics have now alternative media sources, ranging from foreign-based professional news services to a plethora of Western-based internet sites. The alternative scope is often critical of Western government policies and capable of ably exposing ulterior, hidden political agenda. In other words, the alternative news sources are often doing the proper job of journalism that is neglected by Western mainstream media who seem to be preoccupied with advancing the political objectives of their governments – no matter how unethical those objectives are.

As part of his mission, Levy came to Washington last week to speak at the National Press Club.

Levy came to Washington with the simple message that change in the situation between Israel and it neighbors will have to come from the U.S. He feels that Israel is a “lost case”. Change will not come from an Israeli society which “has surrounded itself with shields, with walls, not just physical walls but also mental walls.”

He sees three principles which allow “Israelis to live easily with the brutal tyranny that is the occupation”.

Hillary Clinton – the ‘Liberal’ Puppet for War

Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016.

Clinton’s Republican rivals or would-be rivals immediately fired the brickbats, accusing the 67-year-old former First Lady of being a «Washington insider» and the «embodiment of all that is wrong» in US politics.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».

Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.

The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.

With an extra bonus; while Washington is engaged on striking a nuclear deal with Tehran, it also turbo-charges an alliance against Tehran using the House of Saud.

When the unexpectedly detailed P5+1 framework agreement with Iran was announced last Thursday, Illinois Republican Mark Kirk made a bizarre comment. “We all know” said the senator, that this is going to end with “a mushroom cloud somewhere near Tehran”—a result of Israel having to go to war to “clean up the mess” made by American and European negotiators. A few days earlier John McCain had expressed the wish that Israel “go rogue” and attack Iran in order to upend the Iran negotiations.

Partner or Pariah? Kerry Calls Lavrov for Help

Naming and shaming over the Iranian nuclear debacle will call out who just is the real pariah and who is the real partner to world peace.

Reading the Western news media is like swimming in a goldfish bowl. News one day gives way to some other transient story the next, and so on and on. With the result that if one were to rely on the Western media for understanding on any particular issue, there is faint chance of proper assimilation. This is because there is typically negligible context, perspective or continuity – as well as, of course, misleading spin and outright disinformation.

To illustrate: one of the most bizarre – unwittingly bizarre – recent news reports was how US Secretary of State John Kerry made an urgent call to Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. Kerry reportedly needed Lavrov for help in clinching a breakthrough in the deadlocked nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Want a 60% instant raise? Monetary reform and public banking deliver ~$3 TRILLION to Americans yearly

*hyperlinks live at source*

“That is to say, under the old way any time we wish to add to the national wealth we are compelled to add to the national debt. Now, that is what Henry Ford wants to prevent. He thinks it is stupid, and so do I, that for the loan of $30,000,000 of their own money the people of the United States should be compelled to pay $66,000,000 — that is what it amounts to, with interest. …But here is the point: If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. …It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30,000,000 in bonds and not $30,000,000 in currency. Both are promises to pay; but one promise fattens the usurer, and the other helps the people.” - Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, interview with NY Times, 1921

Since the beginning of the Western-backed foreign invasion of jihadist terrorists into Syria in late 2010, the American and Western mainstream media has attempted to present the death squad fighters on the ground as two-sided – one group being Islamist extremists and the other being “moderate rebels.” As I have documented extensively, this characterization is entirely inaccurate as there is no such thing as a moderate rebel in Syria. Still, this information has not stopped major media outlets from producing presentations in stark contrast to the facts.

In recent months, however, as more and more evidence surfaces proving the official narrative of the existence of “moderate rebels” to be false, the corporate media outlets have taken to yet more propaganda-based name-changes and distortion surrounding the proxy forces fighting on the ground inside Syria...

THIS IS HOW HILLARY DOES BUSINESS – AN OIL COMPANY, HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES IN COLOMBIA AND THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

The details of these financial dealings remain murky, but this much is clear: After millions of dollars were pledged by the oil company to the Clinton Foundation — supplemented by millions more from Giustra himself — Secretary Clinton abruptly changed her position on the controversial U.S.-Colombia trade pact. Having opposed the deal as a bad one for labor rights back when she was a presidential candidate in 2008, she now promoted it, calling it “strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States.” The change of heart by Clinton and other Democratic leaders enabled congressional passage of a Colombia trade deal that experts say delivered big benefits to foreign investors like Giustra.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This dynasty has been, and will always been a completely, brilliantly criminal organisation.

And it goes way back to Bill Clinton's days as Arkansas's Governor.

Between the drug trade going in and out of Mena Airport; the mysterious deaths and disappearances of many witnesses to that drug trade; the land flipping deals; the death of Vincent Foster; the engineering of the emotional (if not physical) destruction of many of Bill Clinton's dalliances; the "Enemies List" (How Nixonian); the very murky manufacturing situation set up in Haiti, creating sweatshop conditions for many of its workers.

But the jewel in the crown, for Mrs. Clinton, has to be Benghazi; and the fact that used unsecured WI-FI for transmitting official documents, and then wiped her hard drives clean when Trey Gowdy subpoenaed them; what does this scream at you?!?

And to the Democrats who bask in her alleged "inevitability", please think again. She is burdened with more baggage than Kim Kardashian could possibly take on a photo shoot, and it will not go away between now and the end of the campaign. It most likely will grow exponentially to the point that no campaign manager can possibly work intelligently, or legally, against it.

I am very much pro a woman president: and there are some wonderful women on the national political scene.

I am rather concerned, however, about someone who has obviously had their conscience surgically removed before running for high office. I do not know WHEN this happened, with Mrs. Clinton; only that it HAS happened.

The DONMEH part 2: House of Saud Connections

An Iraqi Mukhabarat (General Military Intelligence Directorate) Top Secret report, “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots,” dated September 2002 and released on March 13, 2008, by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in translated English form, points to the Dönmeh roots of the founder of the Saudi Wahhabi sect of Islam, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab.

The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret (Part I)

Israel has always been reluctant to describe the Turkish massacre of the Armenians by the Turks in 1915 as “genocide.” It has always been believed that the reason for Israel’s reticence was not to upset Israel’s close military and diplomatic ties with Turkey. However, more evidence is being uncovered that the Armenian genocide was largely the work of the Dönmeh leadership of the Young Turks. Historians like Ahmed Refik, who served as an intelligence officer in the Ottoman army, averred that it was the aim of the Young Turks to destroy the Armenians, who were mostly Christian. The Young Turks, under Ataturk’s direction, also expelled Greek Christians from Turkish cities and attempted to commit a smaller-scale genocide of the Assyrians, who were also mainly Christian.

BREAKING Rand Paul Sends Cease-And-Desist To Stations Running Attack Ads Against Him

A lawyer for the Rand Paul campaign has sent a legal notice to TV stations that are running an attack ad based on Rand’s views on Iran, calling the ad defamatory and asking stations to stop showing it.

The letter is an objection to a million-dollar ad buy by a group called the Foundation for a Secure and Prosperous America, led by Republican operative Rick Reed.

“The Advertisement attempts to deceive voters regarding Senator Rand Paul’s position on U.S.-Iran relations through at least three false statements,” writes Paul campaign general counsel Matthew T. Sanderson in the letter dated April 7, which was obtained by BuzzFeed News.

Media Were Already Running With Police Fantasy When Video Exploded It

The New York Times (4/7/15) released a video of a black South Carolina man Walter Scott being shot, casually and without apparent mercy, eight times in the back by white police officer Michael T. Slager. The media’s outrage after the video’s publication was righteous and swift. The state of South Carolina followed suit, filing murder charges against Slager.

Writing on the current affairs website, Al Araby, Sabbagh asked: “British journalists are among the best and most skeptical in the world. Why then, with a few honorable exceptions, do they fail to be skeptical when comes to Israel?”

The question was especially pertinent in light of an egregious interview conducted by senior BBC presenter, Sarah Montague, just two weeks earlier, with Israel’s “defense” minister Moshe Yaalon.

Hannity Guest Leaves in Middle of Segment on Walter Scott Shooting: ‘I’m Done!’

Leo Terrell, who’s blown up several times on Hannity’s show before, got really angry with Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson after he said people need to “stop overreacting” in cases like the Scott shooting, because of how much people overreacted in the cases of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

He shouted, “I am not going to sit here and listen to this hate! I’m not gonna listen to it!”

Hannity tried to calm things down and actually sided with Terrell, but when Terrell spoke again, the second Peterson piped up, Terrell flipped out again and shouted, “You quiet down! I’m done! I’m done!”

And then, he just left.

When Hannity told this to Peterson, the reverend said, “Leo’s a little coward.”

Israeli investigative journalist says the Paris Charlie Hebdo terror attack likely a false flag by Israel

Though a right-wing, pro-Zionist Israeli, Barry Chamish is known for his fearless exposés of corruption at the top of Israel’s power hierarchy. When someone like Chamish, who hates Netanayahu’s Labor Zionist opponents with a passion, nonetheless singles out Bibi as a suspect in the Charlie Hebdo psy-op, it would seem that January’s false flag in Paris has backfired.

Below is a transcript from yesterday’s Barry Chamish – Kevin Barrett interview. (Chamish’s words are in boldface.) Extracts from the first interview pointing the finger at Netanyahu have been published in We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo! Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11.

With the Syrian Arab Army controlling the south of Idlib, it is clear that militants based in and supplied via Turkey took part in the operation, leading the Syrian government itself to accuse the NATO member of directly supporting Al Qaeda...

Iran – The Story behind the Story

Allowing a country like Iran destroying the US hegemon’s power base by taking a sovereign decision to abandon the dollar for oil and gas trading – no way.

It would have meant the end of the dollar as the world’s chief reserve currency, and giving up the instrument of coercing the world into accepting Washington’s dictate, the tool that serves to dish out sanctions left and right – no way!

Washington’s seemingly blind and preposterous arrogance drives the closest allies into the ‘adversary’s camp. The FED (Federal Reserve Bank) announced on 2 April 2015 that it fined the German Commerz bank with 1.7 billion US dollars for dealing with Cuba, Sudan and Iran – Washington sanctioned countries.

When even the staunchest stooges of empire seek alliances in the East, the writing is on the wall, that the economic winds are shifting, that a tectonic sea-change is in the offing and that the Iran nuclear deal, one way or another, doesn’t really matter in the foreseeable future.

Israel attacked America on 9-11-01! – Shout it from the rooftops (Part II)

It’s time for those Americans who assisted the Israelis with 9-11-01 and who covered it up to be indicted, arrested, tried and convicted for their various roles in the attack on America on 9-11-01 by Israel and its coverup.

This of course means that both of the massive American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were based on the big lies, false-narratives and propaganda dispensed to the American masses by the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) and were completely illegal under international law and thereby constitute abject war crimes for which those.

Numerous former top USG Officials and Members of Congress will someday soon be made accountable for committing espionage against America related to 9-11-01, its coverup and for all their war crimes based on lying about it and falsely blaming Islamics in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hiding America’s War Crimes in Laos, While Reporting on the Grim Results - NY Times Covers Up Washington’s Monstrous Evil

The NY Times on Monday ran a lengthy piece (“One Woman’s Mission to Free Laos from Millions of Unexploded Bombs”) on Channapha Khamvongas, a 42-year-old Laotian-American woman on a mission to get the US to help Laos clean up the countless unexploded anti-personnel “bombis” that it dropped, which are still killing peasants — especially children — half a century after the so-called “Secret War” by the US against Laos ended.

U.S. Propaganda 101: Illegally Invade Countries, Fund the Media, Call it “Independent”

The author accuses news outlets of doing exactly what he himself and the U.S. mainstream media in general does when reporting about foreign policy issues such as Ukraine: they “systematically [regurgitate U.S. propaganda, spread] lies, half-truths, and conspiracy theories.” The advantage they have is that they don’t need to translate anything. Apparently for Rohac an article written in Russian has to be Russian propaganda. It’s that simple: Russians are just not producing any honest journalistic content. This argument about texts being “directly translated from Russian sources” is not only weak, it is xenophobic.

BOTEACH TRIES TO REKINDLE THE DAILY SHOW FIRE

In yet another attempt to show the world that he has the intelligence of a human being, Shmuley Boteach adds his voice to the controversy surrounding Jon Stewart’s replacement, Trevor Noah. As usual, he’s way off base. Good thing he doesn’t play baseball ;)

The Daily Show sets the standard for Comedy Channel, and Stewart set that bar high. I wish Trevor well, but I wish even more that he do a crash course in Middle East facts and get up to speed so that he treats this most volatile of subjects with the erudition it deserves.

Is he talking about himself in the last sentence? HE is the one that needs the crash course in Middle East facts!

Bottom line is …. If Boteach doesn’t like him, YOU gotta love him!

Japan ought to commercialize their considerable holdings by setting up a refining process, and use the revenue from the sale of Tritium to finance further cleanup!

National Geographic's corporate-corrupted war on REALITY: how a once-upstanding mag now betrays humanity to push toxic poisons of advertisers

The cover of this month's National Geographic magazine is causing some major controversy among the cognitively aware, as this once-upstanding and generally unbiased nature periodical has quite obviously fallen headlong into the clutches of corporate-controlled propaganda and lies.

Outlining what it says are some of the basic tenets of "The War on Science," National Geographic likens having concerns about the safety of vaccines, fluoride, and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) to believing that the moon landings were faked, or that the earth was made flat by Jenny McCarthy, or something (because science!).

Each of the following beliefs is presented on the National Geographic cover as being some kind of hare-brained conspiracy theory that threatens the continued advancement of modern civilization:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me preface this by saying I come from a science background myself, but all too often science gets hijacked and distorted for political or economic gain, or simply makes goofs which are perpetuated by arrogance!

Why should we not just blindly trust science?

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles; which holds the record for longest running scientific goof!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thinking the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!

Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors though infection was caused by bad air.

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus...



... the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

Political Smears in U.S. Never Change: the NYT’s 1967 Attack on MLK’s Anti-War Speech

What’s most striking about this — aside from the utter lack of evidence for any of it — is how identical it is to whatNixon officials said to smear the last generation’s greatest whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg (who is widely regarded by Democrats as a hero because his leak occurred with a Republican in the White House).

U.S. plan to shut down cell phones and internet in energency. Court ruled no disclosure. Flashback: U.S. condemns cell phone and internet shut down in Egypt and Syria

It seems the courts through a Freedom of information act lawsuit is standing by the U.S. government and not allowing the release of the U.S. governments plan to shut down the internet and cell phone service (plan SOP303) in times of emergencies. In other words if there was civil unrest.

The reason why the lawsuit was filed in the first place was due to when all cell phone service was cut in San Francisco during the BART unrest.

EPIC asked the court to revisit its ruling, arguing that the decision, "if left in place, would create an untethered 'national security' exemption'" in FOIA law. On Friday, the court ordered (PDF) the government to respond—a move that suggests the appellate court might rehear the case.

Psychological Warfare and the Fragmentation of the Psyche

The subject of dissociative identity disorder and the fracturing of the psyche is a complex topic that is becoming more mainstream through alternative media. The causes, nature and extent of the disorder are still shrouded in mystery, though modern medicine and psychology do have a lot to say about the matter. One of the reasons the disorder is controversial is that it doesn’t seem to fit well in the dominant materialist/biologist reductionism upon which mass science is built. Given the presupposition of modern science that the psyche is entirely equated with the brain itself, the assumptions are thus that any possible solution to mental problems of this nature can only be remedied or suppressed through the addition of, and rearrangement of, molecular compounds.

Authentic Journalism that Challenges Empire and Its Centers of Power

Exposing Lies of the Empire is a monumental work.

Some years back, I was approached to come up with a story that I’d really like to cover. There were many, but right away I was drawn to a story whose angle was completely marginalized in any media I had checked. I was interested to go to Zimbabwe and get a genuine impression from Zimbabweans of how they view the direction of their country under the government of Robert Mugabe. How they viewed the redistribution of land within the country.

Top Donor to Clinton Foundation (jewish) Oligarch in Ukraine

Follow the Money

Between 2009 and 2013, including when Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, based in Kiev, Ukraine.

In 2008, Mr. Pinchuk made a five-year, $29 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a wing of the foundation that coordinates charitable projects and funding for them but doesn’t handle the money. The pledge was to fund a program to train future Ukrainian leaders and professionals “to modernize Ukraine,” according to the Clinton Foundation.

It said that if Mr. Pinchuk was lobbying the State Department about Ukraine, “this cannot be seen as anything but a good thing.”

Oh certainly, all you have to do is take a brief look at Ukraine to see what a wonderful thing it has been.

NBC'S LAW & ORDER: VACCINE AGENDA MOUTHPIECE

To honor April as National Autism Awareness Month, NBC’s Law and Order has decided to run a new episode titled Granting Immunity.’ This episode revolves around a measles outbreak in an elementary school due to parents that didn’t vaccinate their children. No stranger to taking the wrong side of controversy, it appears NBC is looking to follow in the footsteps of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel to attack parents who still want medical choice. This is termed ‘behavior placement’ in which subtle messages are woven into shows. It should be noted that watching television instantly switches a viewer’s brainwaves into the alpha state (relaxation, suggestibility etc.). Next to criminality and fraud from the mainstream medical community, it appears ridicule and brainwashing are the only ‘real science’ vaccines still command.

Countering The Lies Of The Mainstream Media

The corporate mainstream media with its well-paid journalists and increasing concentration of ownership bows to the concerns of advertisers. It tends to be privately owned and its owners have a vested interest in maintaining an economic system based on private ownership and in manufacturing consent for it. Moreover, such outlets these days are increasingly part of major conglomerates, which may include armaments manufacturers, banking or industrial concerns, and will not therefore adopt stances or report on stories that are harmful to the interests of the wider organisation.

Greece plans return to drachma and nationalization of banks

“We are a Left-wing government. If we have to choose between a default to the IMF or a default to our own people, it is a no-brainer,” said a senior official.

Greece is drawing up drastic plans to nationalise the country’s banking system and introduce a parallel currency to pay bills unless the eurozone takes steps to defuse the simmering crisis and soften its demands.

Sources close to the ruling Syriza party said the government is determined to keep public services running and pay pensions as funds run critically low. It may be forced to take the unprecedented step of missing a payment to the International Monetary Fund next week.

International treaties are being held hostage by the west.

There has been a lot of interference inside Iran by Washington. The nuclear issue is just an excuse to undermine the Islamic Republic and has very little to do with anything else.

Russia is opposed to snap back inspections and phased out sanctions.
