Trump calls on CNN to donate debate money to veterans

Donald Trump is putting his mouth where CNN’s money is, demanding that all profits from the broadcast of next week’s GOP debate go to veterans.

Following news that CNN has been capitalizing on Trump-mania by raising ad prices for the Sept. 16 debate to 40 times their normal rate, the GOP front-runner sent a letter to the news network’s president, Jeff Zucker, to insist that he share the wealth.

Nice try, Don. It won't happen. But it was a good thought!

KFC has another new Colonel Sanders: Norm MacDonald

Three months after KFC reintroduced "Colonel Sanders," they have a new actor portraying him.

The late founder of the fast food chain had been played over the summer by "Saturday Night Live" announcer and former cast member Darrell Hammond.

As of Sunday night, there was a new Colonel in town, portrayed by fellow "SNL" alum (and current "Last Comic Standing" judge) Norm MacDonald (no stranger to fast food ads, having been the voice of the Hardee's/Carl's Jr. "star" years ago).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The new Colonel is a lot more like his namesake. The last one came across as kind of creepy!

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

It will not be easy to rid the world of the grave dangers created by neocon policies.

The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,”

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Why ‘that’ photo mattered this time: Our children could be on that beach, too

Most of us have seen him by now, whether we wanted to or not: soaked red shirt, blue shorts, tiny hands in the sand, their palms turned upward. The photos of a 3-year-old lying on the beach of Bodrum in southwest Turkey have gone around the world. Memefied, commented, re-drawn with angels or Arab leaders, they are credited with changing international opinion about the Syrian refugee crisis.

Fox News Reaches New Heights of Panic That 7th Graders Are Being Converted to Islam

On “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, concerned parent Brandee Portfield spoke to co-host Steve Doocy about an assignment her seventh-grade daughter had to complete in a world history class that required her to write the words “Allah is the only God” and “Muhammad is his prophet,” which to her “seems like it’s indoctrination.”

Why it seemed like that to Porterfield is more than a little perplexing, given that early in the interview, she provided the context for her daughter having to write those words. “They did this assignment where they wrote out the Five Pillars of Islam,” she said, “including having the children learn and write the Shahada, which is the Islamic conversion creed.”

While Refugee Crisis Explodes, Elite Burrow Into Bunkers: “They Want More Refugees to Distract”

After dragging the rest of the world into seemingly endless wars in the Middle East, policy makers and the major media outlets are now happy to flood the public with guilt-inducing reports about the refugee crisis.

[I]t is not us, as a collective, who is responsible for this catastrophic state of affairs. It is a relatively small number of people, each of whom is quite insane... that have, for example, created the current refugee crisis in Europe.

Elites want more refugees partly because it helps to distract us from analysing and resisting what they are doing overall.

Hungarian journalist fired after kicking, tripping up refugees on video

A journalist for Hungary’s N1TV channel associated with the far-right Jobbik party has been fired after her colleagues filmed her kicking and tripping up migrants fleeing from the police.

The phoney « refugee crisis »

While the European media arouse emotion by showing photographs of a drowned child and reports of crowds of refugees crossing the Balkans on foot, Thierry Meyssan demonstrates that these images have been fabricated. It’s certain that they serve the purposes of the head of the Federation of German Industries, Ulrich Grillo, and also NATO. But they do not show the phenomenon in its totality, which leads the Europeans to offer inadapted responses.

‘Tis The Season For Selling War

snip: Using such reports (all, it must be said, originating from a lone Israeli publication), Secretary Kerry phoned Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Saturday to express Washington’s “concerns about reports of an imminent enhanced Russian military buildup” in Syria. One wonders if Lavrov was permitted the opportunity to express his own concerns about the U.S. jets already cross-crossing Syrian skies, or the presence of U.S. boots already known to have been on the ground. Not that any of this would likely have gotten through to Kerry. The secretary, one will recall, is the same man so taken aback by Russia’s annexation of Crimea that he publicly shrieked, with no apparent shame, that invading foreign countries on trumped up pretexts is simply not something one does in the 21st century.

FLASHBACK - FEMA was in New York the Night Before 9/11

Kenney: "We're currently one of the first teams that was deployed to support the city of New York for this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night, and went into action on Tuesday morning. And not until today did we get a full opportunity to work the entire site."

Needless to say, this recording caused quite a stir. The official reaction was Kenney was simply confused about the dates.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has said it did not have urban search and rescue teams in place in New York City prior to the Sept. 11 attacks, contrary to an Internet-based rumor alleging otherwise. ... FEMA officials said Kenney, in the heat of the moment, misstated his team's arrival date. [WorldNetDaily 11/15/01]

However, on the recording Kenney is complaining about not getting full access to the site until "today". Kenney talks about a Monday, a Tuesday, and "today". That's three days.

FLASHBACK - CNN on 9/11:“50 stories went down” ... at 10:45am

"Just two or three minutes ago, there was yet another collapse or explosion. I'm now out of sight. A good samaritan has taken me in on ___ Street. But at a quarter to 11 there was another collapse or explosion following the 10:30 collapse of the second tower. And a firefighter that rushed by estimated that 50 stories went down. The street filled with smoke. It was like a forest fire roaring down a canyon. Now, as ___ and others have told you, all downtown Manhattan is covered with thick white ash and building material."

This is an odd statement to say the least because a 50 story building did not collapse at 10:45am. Stranger still is the fact that WTC 7 was a 47 story building, so it fits the description given by the firefighter, but it didn't come down until 5:20pm.

Fox News Doesn’t Get it, Blames Russia for Refugee Crisis in EU

DC has lost it....totally!

There is one thing Fox News has learned to do well over the years — that's to blame Russia for all the bad stuff that happens in the world. The Syrian war breaks out — quick to blame the Russians, the US government organized a coup in Ukraine — of course the Russians were behind it, the channel screams. What's next, Fox News? Perhaps the Russians also started the Ebola virus or were behind the extinction of the dinosaurs?

This time, it was no different after Fox News decided to tackle the refugee crisis in Europe. KT McFarland, a Fox News National Security Analyst invited to talk on the issue, was quick to blame… that's right, none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin for creating the refugee crisis in Europe.

Why Murdoch Pushes for War

Israel Grants Oil Rights in Syria to Murdoch and Rothschild

Israel has granted oil exploration rights inside Syria, in the occupied Golan Heights, to Genie Energy. Major shareholders of Genie Energy – which also has interests in shale gas in the United States and shale oil in Israel – include Rupert Murdoch and Lord Jacob Rothschild. This from a 2010 Genie Energy press release:

Claude Pupkin, CEO of Genie Oil and Gas, commented, “Genie’s success will ultimately depend, in part, on access to the expertise of the oil and gas industry and to the financial markets. Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch are extremely well regarded by and connected to leaders in these sectors. Their guidance and participation will prove invaluable.”

BEX ALERT - “Hillary panic” is spreading: Can she fend off Bernie, those stupid emails and that deepening sense of doom?

It’s not entirely fair to say that Clinton’s current moment of crisis is self-inflicted, and indeed the situation is so murky that it’s not entirely clear this is a crisis, in political terms, rather than a somewhat predictable if angsty hiccup near the beginning of a long campaign. I seem to recall that she is related to someone whose political death knell was sounded repeatedly, and who displayed a Dracula-like aptitude for clawing his way out of the tomb. But one aspect of the distorting effect that both Hillary Clinton and her husband have on the political environment is the way they attract all kinds of bad stuff, which then sticks to them and cannot easily be scraped off. They’re like human magnets for evil thoughts and evil deeds, covered with Velcro and coated in molasses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the start of a campaign by Hillary's supporters to declare the email scandal a non-crisis and consign it to the dim and murky history of ... last week. Hillary's protectors said the same thing about the Cattle Futures trades that started her fortune. "It's ancient history; let us focus on the future!" They said the same thing about the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster. They said the same thing about the Clinton links to the Iran/Contra gun and drug-running operation from Arkansas to Nicaragua. They said the same thing about Whitewater, Flowerwood, Castle Grande, Madison Guarantee, and the Arkansas Development Finance Authority being used to launder the CIA's proceeds from that operation (while trying to keep the focus on a stained blue dress). They said the same thing about the travel office firings, China-gate, Blood-gate, Hillary's vicious attacks on Bill Clinton's sexual victims, and Benghazi. Always it is, "That was yesterday. Forget it. Nothing to see. Stop living in the past!"

But our present was built in the past. And if that past was corrupt then so is the present.

The Hillary email scandal is not going away, in part because there may be larger scandals lurking behind it! The first is the now-documented fact that even as the US Governent insists that Al Qaeda and ISIS are our enemies in the War on Terror, the US was sending weapons from Libya to Syria to arm Al Qaeda and ISIS against Syria's legitimate government, using the consulate in Benghazi as the hub of the operation. The second scandal lurking behind Hillary's server might even be worse!

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

At the same time Bill Clinton was transferring this technology to China, huge donations began to pour into his re-election campaign from the US companies allowed to sell the technology to China, and from American citizens of Chinese descent. The fact that they were US citizens allowed them to donate to political campaigns, but it later emerged that they were acting as conduits for cash coming in from Asian sources, including Chinese Intelligence Agencies! The scandal became known as China-gate!

This establishes a history of the Clintons treating US secrets as their own personal property, selling them to raise money for campaigns.

Now then, let us consider a private email server with weak security, at least one known totally open access point, no encryption, and outside the control and monitoring systems of the US government, on which are parked many of the nation's most closely guarded secrets! It is already established that Hillary's email was hacked. One hacker named Guccifer provided copies of emails to Russia Today, which published them. Another hacker is reported to be offering 32,000 of Hillary's emails for the sum of $500,000. Security experts agree that Hillary's server had worse security than the Ashley Madison website!

Now, consider a charitable foundation owned by the Clintons (which actually does very little charitable work). Being a charitable foundation, it is allowed to accept "donations" from foreign sources, and roughly 40% of the cash that has poured into the Clinton Foundation has come from foreign sources. Many of those foreign sources received preferential treatment from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sufficient for attorney Larry Klayman to file a RICO lawsuit against the foundation (which as of last report was thrown out of court by a Clinton-appointed judge who refused to recuse himself over the obvious conflict of interest)!

Easy means of delivering secrets. Easy means of accepting payment!

This is a perfect setup to repeat the 1996 selling of secrets for cash. In other words, a perfect espionage operation, running out the US State Department, with the weak email server providing the secrets and a charitable foundation to accept and launder the payments! Hillary doesn't have to physically steal the files, the way Jonathan Pollard did. Hillary doesn't have to scratch an X on a mailbox, the way Aldrich Ames did. Hillary doesn't have to tape bundles of stolen documents underneath a park bridge, like Robert Hannsen did!

It is time to look past the small scandal of the private email server at what may be a far larger scandal hidden behind it!

Political Corruption Sanctioned by Mainstream Press?

What Hillary did was far more direct treason than what Edward Snowden was accused of. Even Snowden has come out and stated bluntly that others go to jail for what Hillary did. How can Hillary claim privacy when she and the Obama Administration have supported the grabbing of every email by the NSA? Why has the press not demanded the NSA turnover all the emails Hillary erased when they have everything?

Where in mainstream media is our Woodward & Bernstein? Are we totally lacking anyone in the media with the guts to do what they were supposed to do? We seem to be looking at more than just the corruption of politics, it has infected the media and downgraded everything to a biased slant. The repeal of the Fairness Doctrine has steered the press into a political tool for propaganda.

Dogs of Western resentment bark as Chinese WWII parade passes

The importance for China of this coming Thursday’s parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII in the Asia-Pacific cannot be overstated enough.

The parade rolling past Tiananmen Square officially celebrates the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. This is an extremely serious – and sensitive – business for 1.4 billion Chinese and the Chinese diaspora all across the world.

And once again, the West – displaying trademark cultural/historical insensitivity – has blown it. Beijing is carefully scrutinizing the diplomatic ramifications of shows and no-shows. Symbolically, absences speak volumes.

President Vladimir Putin will be in Beijing, as well as leaders of the four Central Asian ‘stans’ that are part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Sanctioned Terrorism

…we must fight sanctioned terrorism today.

What is left unmentioned and unrecognized in our collective psyche is the kind of terrorism that has been deliberately obfuscated: sanctioned terrorism or terrorism with a license – sanctions.

Shamelessly, even after sanctioned terrorism took the life of one million Iraqis, the UNSC licensed terrorism against Iran – sanctions, without any remorse for the lost lives of 1 million Iraqi victims of sanctioned terrorism and untold numbers or other victims across the globe.

The overall failure to identify and deliberately obfuscate this act of terrorism has enabled this premeditated act of terrorism to continue with impunity.The success of this deception is owed to controlling the narrative with complicity from the media.This has been so effective that even the victims of sanctioned terrorism fail to grasp that they are being subjected to terrorism.

In his keynote speech, the president also referred to Takfiri groups, including Daesh, Taliban and Boko Haram, as other sources of terrorism in the region.

Blowback on a NATO beach – Pepe Escobar

We’ve had it coming when the “we’re the new OPEC” Bush administration invaded, occupied and destroyed Iraq – creating the set-up for the establishment of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

We’ve had it coming when the Petraeus surge bribed Sunnis to half-heartedly fight Al-Qaeda in Iraq – which then took its time to reorganize in the heart of the desert, change its name to Islamic State and plot a comeback.

We’ve had it coming when NATO, enthusiastically “led” by London and Paris, and allied with hardcore Salafi-jihadis, set out to duly “liberate” Libya into a failed state run by militias.

82 new US-trained Syrians prepare for fighting

Coalition is rotten at its core! Time to change the players and game itself to create a shot at success.

A US military source has revealed in private conversation that the US-led Coalition formed to target the Islamic State (IS) and other terrorist groups is currently training 82 new recruits for its Syria operations. These include 12 new fighters in Jordan and 70 in Turkey.

A spokeswoman for the US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM), Major Genieve David, would not confirm these numbers. “We are not giving out numbers due to operational security concerns,” she said via phone.

But Turkey’s Foreign Minister Minister Mevlut Çavu?o?lu’s comment a few days ago that “in the second group we have around 100 (fighters)” suggests that the source’s numbers are likely to be accurate.

It is uncertain, anyway, if all 82 trainees will graduate from the Coalition training program.”

Russia and Syria: The Die Is Cast

Hope the Russians will bring peace to Syria and the refugees will return home.

Despite doubts and denials, Russia is about to embark on an ambitious expansion of its Syrian presence, likely to change the game in the war-torn country. Russia’s small and dated naval repair facility in Tartous will be enlarged, while Jableh near Latakia (Laodicea of old) will become the Russian Air Force base and a full-blown Russian Navy base in the Eastern Mediterranean, beyond the narrow Bosphorus straits. The jihadi multitudes besetting Damascus are likely to be beaten into obedience and compliance, and the government of President Assad relieved from danger and siege. The war with Da’esh (ISIS) is to provide the cover for this operation. This is the first report of this fateful development, based on confidential and usually reliable Russian sources in Moscow

Glenn Greenwald Destroys NYT Myth That US Abides by Cluster Bomb Treaty

American journalist Glenn Greenwald has systematically picked apart and refuted an article published Thursday by the New York Times, which claimed that the United States has abided by the provisions of the international Convention on Cluster Munitions.

The Times article by Rick Gladstone appeared on the tails of the annual report from advocacy group Cluster Munition Coalition, which found that cluster bombs have been used in Syria, Libya, Yemen, Ukraine and Sudan this year.

Gladstone wrote that while the United States has not ratified the treaty, it has abided by its provisions. That’s a flat out lie, according to Greenwald, who provided a detailed and specific account of their use.

Frustrated Dick Cheney Hints At Nuclear First Strike On Iran

Besides the basic vulgarity of seeing an aging war criminal baying for face time, Cheney’s fundamental problem is that he’s already a throw-back. After hiding in the shadows since his regime expired in 2008, Cheney returns, but with nothing new to bring to the table but a whole lot of bad memories, for us anyway. So far this week, his numerous and unapologetic interviews have ranged from hawkish diatribes about the recycled cut-throat neoconservative platitude of “American exceptionalism” (the subject of his new book), to proto-fascist rantings about how the US needs to be more aggressive militarily with the world (as if that’s possible). The usual sycophantic middle-aged rightwing media pundits have been gushing over Cheney’s secondhand ideologies, crowing, “Here’s someone who’s not afraid to tell it like it is”. Watching Cheney try to reinvent himself by attempting to rearrange yesterday’s failures is like watching an aging Hollywood diva going in for that final face lift.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I see it as a sign of desperation that the corporate media keeps trotting out these relics like Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, Josh Bolton, and Dick Cheney, all of whom are out of touch and clearly past their prime.

If time stamps told it all at face value, it would appear as if the threat was called in two minutes before the Tweet was actually sent.

According to a statement by USHCC, the meeting was requested by Trump and lasted more than one hour at the billionaire's Fifth Avenue office building in New York City. Although USHCC has previously denounced Trump's rhetoric–particularly on the topic of immigration — as "harsh" and insensitive," Palomarez reportedly agreed to the meeting after Trump's advisers stressed that the pair's disagreement was "based on the media's mischaracterization of his stances."

"We wanted to hear Mr. Trump clearly articulate his views, away from the public spectacle, the media, and the debate floor," read the statement.

Carly Fiorina gets boost as CNN changes debate rules

CNN announced Tuesday that it is amending the criteria for inclusion for the second GOP debate in two weeks at the Reagan Library.

According to the cable network, any candidate who ranks "in the top 10 in polling between August 6 and September 10" will be invited to the debate.

The news comes after complaints from GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina, who was set to be excluded from the debate despite a rise in her poll numbers after a strong performance in the undercard debate on August 6. Earlier Tuesday, political and community leaders from 23 states signed a letter warning CNN chief Jeff Zucker against "inappropriately influencing" the GOP primary process and pushing for Fiorina's inclusion.

Salon And WSJ Delete Offensive Tweets: Here’s What A Twitter Fail Really Feels Like

There’s a saying on Twitter: “Never tweet.” The Wall Street Journal and may have a new appreciation for that pearl of modern wisdom this week after both outlets suffered pile-ons from scores of Twitter users over the same mistake: promoting inoffensive articles with offensive tweets.

In a tweet about Chinese President Xi Jinping’s political vulnerability, the Journal on Sunday made the ill-advised decision to ask whether he had “a chink in his armor.” Given the slang meaning of the word “chink” as an anti-Asian slur, Twitter users immediately began responding in disbelief, some asking whether the tweet was purposefully mocking Xi. It was deleted a few minutes later, but lived on through screenshots.

Texas police bash ‘unethical’ news station for airing video of cops killing unarmed suspect

Texas police upset that a local news station aired footage of Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shooting a man with hands up want the public to express outrage — at the news station.

Gilbert Flores, 41, can be seen in the cell phone video aired by KSAT standing outside his San Antonio-area home during a domestic violence call. He raises his hands over his head then abruptly crumples to the ground after he is apparently shot by deputies.

“They just cold-blooded shot that [expletive],” the man holding the camera says.

Both the county D.A. and the sheriff’s office have opened investigations into the shooting. Both deputies, Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez, are on paid administrative leave, KSAT reports.

But the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department is angry about the news station’s decision to air the entire video, which also appears to show officers handcuffing Flores’ lifeless body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Commissioner of the Bexar Police Department; if you taught police restraint, and how to diffuse, or talk down a potentially dangerous situation, you wouldn't have this kind of footage to deal with in the first place.

But please, don't you dare condemn the messenger!

This happened; it was real; deal with it.

Carly wins? CNN to unveil changes to criteria for next GOP debate

CNN has scheduled a phone call at 5 p.m. EDT on Tuesday with the GOP presidential campaigns to discuss changes to the criteria determining which candidates will get to appear on main stage at the next debate later this month, The Washington Times has learned.

The call is the outgrowth of negotiations between CNN and the Republican National Committee, which sanctions the party’s debates, to address concerns raised by the GOP’s only female candidate, Carly Fiorina, that the original criteria wrongly has kept her form the stage even as she is rising in the polls.

Forbes Fail! Western media outlet publishes fake Russian troop casualty article, and its zombie readers actually believe it

Due to a lack of actual evidence (i.e. photos, videos, something, anything) to show that some 1,000 to 50,000 Russian troops have invaded Ukraine some 37 plus times and counting…Forbes has just said screw it, and is now printing anything they find on the web that says Russian military is operating in Ukraine.

Forum posts, tweets, blog comments, post-it notes…anything to try and garner support for the magazine’s MIC sponsors. More weapon sales means more money for the rich 1% Forbes guys.

Calling on their trusted Russophobe scaremonger contributor Paul R. Gregory to provide some “Russian aggression” goodies, the Kiev consultant and Hoover Institute sponsored “academic” came up with a suspicious, little known web site, owned by a shell company in Ukraine, printing a fake Russian military casualty story…no sources, no research, no fact checking, no google search…nada – nothing.

Holocaust-denying historian David Irving organises 'disgusting' £2,000-a-head holiday tours of former concentration camps and Hitler's HQ so people can 'make up their own mind about the truth'

Holocaust-denying historian David Irving has sparked widespread fury by organising 'disgusting' tours of concentration camps costing £2,000 for each participant.

The disgraced academic, who is a self-confessed fascist, is leading a tour group to sites in Poland such as Treblinka, Sobibor and Hitler's 'Wolf's Lair' headquarters.

Holocaust memorial groups have accused Irving of insulting the memory of those killed in the Second World War by spreading 'pro-Nazi propaganda' on the tours.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another fine example of objective unbiased reporting by the Daily Mail.

Wang Xiaolu, a journalist with Caijing Magazine, delivers what looks like a forced apology after being held by Chinese authorities for a week. A Chinese news reporter who has been held for a week by authorities in China, accused of spreading “false information” about the economy, has surfaced. The state broadcast network CCTV today aired footage of Wang Xiaolu appearing to apologize. He says he solemnly regrets writing the influential story he did, about the nation's recently troubled stock market. I'm sure nobody told him that he should say that.

Study: Most Criminals Don’t Buy Guns From Gun Shows

The vast majority of criminals don’t buy guns from gun shows, according to a survey by the University of Chicago Crime Lab. In the survey of nearly 100 detainees at the Cook Co. Jail, about 70% said they bought guns from “social connections” or corrupt cops and only a handful of them purchased guns from licensed dealers at gun shops or shows.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

9.Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

5.Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

Dear Guardian editors: this is why no one believes you anymore

Egyptian junta hands down three-year jail terms to Al Jazeera journalists

In a blatant attempt to terrorize the media and the population of Egypt, the US-backed junta of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi sentenced Al Jazeera journalists to three-year jail terms on trumped-up charges of aiding deposed President Mohamed Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Sisi toppled Mursi in a bloody July 2013 coup, shooting thousands of unarmed people in the streets of Egypt.

Over 10 US journalists killed in connection with their work since 1991

The on-air killings of Alison Parker and Adam Ward in Roanoke, Virginia on Wednesday is only the most recent case of journalists being killed in the United States while on the job, or for reasons related to their work.

In August 2007, Chauncey Bailey of the Oakland Post was shot multiple times by a masked gunman in the streets of Oakland. He had only been editor-in-chief of the Post for two months. The gunman, Devaughndre Broussard, confessed the next day, saying that he was angered by Bailey’s coverage of the Your Black Muslim Bakery where he worked.

Glenn Beck’s ‘All Lives Matter’ March Draws 20,000

Several hundred protesters from the Black Lives Matter movement marched to the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday to bring attention to race issues ranging from policing to underrepresentation of minorities at one of the nation’s biggest state fairs.

The mixed-race crowd, including senior citizens and children, chanted slogans along the 1-1/2 mile route and briefly lay down on a bridge south of the fairgrounds

Minnesota media reported the number of marchers at 325.

A few hundred miles to the south, a throng of 20,000, led by Glenn Beck, marched in Birmingham, Alabama, along the same route marched by Martin Luther King. They were there to declare that “All Lives Matter.”

Guess which march received national media attention and which one didn’t.

Kissinger’s role in gaining U.S. acceptance of Israeli nukes a case study in Zionist manipulation

On August 20 PressTV carried an article titled “Kissinger tried to curb Israeli nukes: State Dept. documents.” The article starts by stating “The US State Department has released documents that show the administration of former president Richard Nixon had sought to curb Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.” In fact, the documents were released in 2006, but they are fascinating and certainly relevent to the Iran nuclear deal in that they show the unbelievable double standard that is being applied to Iran compared to Israel.

NYT’s Barro: ‘Massive’ Gun Grab Only Way To Impact Violent Crime

Give Josh Barro credit for candor. When it comes to guns, the New York Times correspondent makes no bones about the kind of draconian, Second Amendment-defying approach he thinks is necessary. -- Forget about expanded background checks or other such measures. The only way to have a “big impact on violent crime,” according to Barro, is to emulate Australia and “really take away massive amounts of guns that people have, reduce the rate of gun ownership substantially.”

Rebekah Brooks’s imminent return as chief executive of Rupert Murdoch’s News UK was described as a “massive two fingers” to the victims of phone-hacking, but also a “gift” to campaigners seeking greater regulation of the press.

A formal announcement that Ms Brooks, who resigned in 2011 amid the phone-hacking scandal but was cleared last year of criminal charges, will retake control of the company that publishes The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times is expected in the next few weeks.

Propaganda Wars: EU Creates Team of Officials to Combat 'Destabilizing' Russian Media

The European Commission has prepared to develop a "rapid response" team to combat what it calls "Russian propaganda," Radio Polska reported on Friday. Up to 10 Russian-speaking officials from EU countries will form the group, which would monitor the Russian media and give policy recommendations based on the media they monitor. While the group does not currently have a budget, it intends to counter what called "the destabilizing influence of Russian-language news reports."

Katrina’s ‘Golden Opportunity’: 10 Years of Corporate Media Celebrating Disaster

Americans love, above all, a narrative. Preferably a moral one, marked by a clear good and evil. For many so-called “school reformers,” the tragedy of Katrina, which marks its ten-year anniversary today, provided that narrative. Its stark before-and-after provided a clear A/B test as to the righteousness of their cause. Before was a “broken school system,” and after is a glossy, privatized education system.

The Illusion of Choice: 90% of American Media Controlled by 6 Corporations

Waking Times

It is worth repeating again and again that the bulk of America’s mainline media is owned and controlled by a mere 6 corporations. This, of course, means that unless you’re already consciously avoiding these mainline media sources, then most of the news and entertainment that makes it onto your screen and into your mind comes from a small pool of corporate sources, all of which play important roles in delivering propaganda, social programming and perpetual crisis narratives to the public.

AP Sues US Gov’t over Fake FBI News Article Booby Trapped with Surveillance Virus

The Associated Press, one of the main sources for mainstream news articles in the world, is currently suing the U.S. government. It’s claim?

The FBI endangered the AP’s reputation when the federal law enforcement agency sent out a link to a fake AP article the FBI had created which was laced with a surveillance virus that would infect the computer of anyone who clicked on it, thereby enabling the FBI to spy on them.

Disinformation laced with spyware? Yes America, our government does that.

MSN hit by large exploit kit malvertising campaign

Microsoft's MSN web portal has been used by unknown attackers to serve up malicious advertising code that attempted to plant the Angler Exploit Kit on visitors' computers.

MSN is the default home page for Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser in its Windows operating system, and the company claims several hundreds of millions of visitors click through to the site every month.

Researcher Jérôme Segura from security firm Malwarebytes reported users were served the malvertising when they simply browsed MSN news, lifestyle or other sections.

Who slipped? How fake report on ‘Russian soldier deaths’ in Ukraine set MSM on fire

A Forbes report on alleged Russian army casualties in Ukraine citing a dodgy Russian website has sparked a media and Twitter storm. Some said Russia had “finally slipped” with the leak on its troops in Ukraine; others were baffled by the “fake publication.” RT decided to investigate.


However, at a certain point the media storm came to a halt. Bloomberg’s Leonid Bershidsky concluded that the initial Delovaya Zhizn report was fake, questioning the URL,, and exposing a grammatical error (“v Ukraine” instead of “na Ukraine”).


“Two days of Western officials retweeting a Forbes report quoting a Ukrainian web-site quoting a non-existent Russia news web-site re Ukraine,” she added.

“The main problem here is, of course, where was the Forbes online editor when the story was published, why nobody bothered to check sources?”

CNN Tells Americans That The Stock Market Is Not Going To Crash

On Wednesday we witnessed the third largest single day point gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average ever. That sounds like great news until you realize that the two largest were in October 2008 – right in the middle of the last financial crisis. This is a perfect example of what I wrote about yesterday. Every time the market crashes, there are huge up days, huge down days and giant waves of market momentum. Even though the Dow was up 619 points on Wednesday, overall we are still down more than 2,000 points from the peak of the market. During the weeks and months to come, we are going to see many more wild market swings, but the overall direction of the market will be down.

Why is Mel Gibson making news in Australia?

Did he or didn't he? Did known hot-head Mel Gibson blow up, shove and scream obscenities at a female photographer who snapped him with his new twentysomething girlfriend in Sydney last week? Or did he simply ask her nicely to stop harassing them?

That's what his publicist says, but that's not the story coming from Kristi Miller, a photographer for The Daily Telegraph, Rupert Murdoch's conservative New York Post-style tabloid Down Under.

(* Why is Mel Gibson making news in Australia?
Because he's been working on A New Film and this would be a good time to remind everybody that he's already been labeled an anti Semetic , hot-head , and that we really should stay away from the cinema , once it gets released . )

Disgruntled TV reporter murders colleagues live on air then posts killer's-eye-view video on TWITTER: Bitter co-worker takes revenge for racial slights in horrifying shooting seen by viewers over their breakfasts

A disgruntled former news reporter who shot dead two of his ex-coworkers during a live TV segment this morning is in critical condition after attempting to kill himself.

It was previously reported that Flanigan had died after shooting himself, but authorities are now saying that he still has a pulse.

Flanigan (who also goes by Bryce Williams) took to Twitter to explain his reasons for shooting dead WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27.

Flanigan, who is African American, wrote that Parker made 'racist comments' and that a complaint was filed against her through the equal employment opportunity commission, but his station chose to hire her anyway.

Never Forget: The Central Banks Have Engineered This Collapse

OK, enough sarcasm. Readers of this column will know by now that the phoney baloney stock markets, manipulated as they are from top to bottom and juiced as they are on the Fed’s QE heroin, are no longer reflective of economic reality. The only question is how far this particular dead cat market will bounce, and whether it will be helped along with more heroin from the Fed.

But there is already one vitally important take away from these events that the independent media must articulate now, before it’s too late. Namely: This crisis was engineered by the central banks. It is their fault.

Let me repeat that again in case you missed it: This crisis was engineered by the central banks.

In May of 1967, a former CIA officer named Tom Braden published a confession in the Saturday Evening Post under the headline, “I’m glad the CIA is ‘immoral.’” Braden confirmed what journalists had begun to uncover over the previous year or so: The CIA had been responsible for secretly financing a large number of “civil society” groups, such as the National Student Association and many socialist European unions, in order to counter the efforts of parallel pro-Soviet organizations. “[I]n much of Europe in the 1950’s,” wrote Braden, “socialists, people who called themselves ‘left’—the very people whom many Americans thought no better than Communists—were about the only people who gave a damn about fighting Communism.”

‘Bullying’ – BBC Political Editor’s Bizarre Term For The Public Resisting The Establishment

The BBC's Nick Robinson has made a career out of telling the public what leading politicians say and do; sometimes even what they 'think'. This stenography plays a key role in 'the mainstream media', given that a vital part of statecraft is to keep the public suitably cowed and fearful of threats from which governments must protect us. The 'free press' requires compliant journalists willing to disseminate elite-friendly messages about global 'peace', 'security' and 'prosperity', uphold Western ideology that 'we are the good guys', and not question power deeply, if at all.

But when a senior journalist complains of 'intimidation and bullying' by the public, making comparison's to 'Vladimir Putin's Russia', the mind really boggles at the distortion of reality. Those were claims made by Robinson, the BBC's outgoing political editor, using an appearance at the Edinburgh international book festival to settle a few scores.
