Muslim Leaders Worldwide Condemn ISIS

Many Americans Want to Know Why Muslims Aren’t Condemning ISIS

Why don’t we hear Muslims condemning the barbarian ISIS terrorists?

ABC News’ Laura Ingraham, Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Fox & Friends and other U.S. media commentators say that Muslims are silent and complicit.

Muslim leaders are actually speaking out … but our press isn’t covering it.

Police Brutality is a Constitutional Violation of All People. Not a Race Issue.

Police Brutality is not a race issue. It is everyone’s problem. No one is safe from it. Until the people get past the racial card played by the agitators trying to capitalize on something bad in a small town near you. We will never get past the real issues of undeclared wars and phony enemies as an excuse to take our rights away. The Federal reserve bank robbing everyone blind. The TSA groping us at the airports.The abuses of the IRS and the over reaching power of the Federal government. These are the real issues that are effecting us all regardless of the color of our skin.

US Media Rules of Reporting on Israeli ‘Operations’ in Gaza

Since Hamas fired its first projectile from Gaza into Israel in 2001, the US establishment media have strictly followed several rules of reporting on the “rockets.” These rules are unwritten. The scriveners and TV news broadcasters may not even think of them as rules. Nevertheless, American mass media reporting on Gaza rockets consistently and predictably follows one absolute, overarching, principle: Israel is always the victim. The rules implement this First Principle. Short are the careers of those who transgress them.

The media faithfully have followed the rules in “Operation Protective Edge.” A reasonable person could fairly describe “Protective Edge” as US-tax dollar funded, Israeli-delivered bombs, tank and artillery shells, missiles, flechette grenades and other explosive devices which sometimes kill dozens of civilians in the Gaza strip a day. No consumer of US mass media will ever hear that description, of course. It offends the First Principle.

The ISIS killer on the (Saudi) king’s highway

The killer awoke before dawn. He put his American desert boots on. He took a knife from the ancient gallery. And he walked on down the hall – bathed in desert sunlight.

The killer spoke with a British accent (London’s East End?) Father (Saud), I want to kill you. Mother (Langley?) I want to… yeeeaaahh, c’mon!

Then the sartorially composed Man in Black beheaded American photojournalist James Foley.

This is not the end, beautiful friend. It’s just a new beginning in the never-ending Global War on Terror. Now starring Papa Saud’s brand new bag – The Caliph and his goons.

Sanctions rebound to hit Europeans

The West’s malevolent sanctions on Russia were not imposed because Russia had in any way affected the well-being, economic circumstances, territorial integrity or social structure of the United States or of any nation that jumped on the US sanctions’ bandwagon.

There was no question of enforcing sanctions because Russia’s actions anywhere in the world had impacted adversely on one single citizen of any Western nation. But they were imposed, anyway, just to try to make things difficult for Moscow and to try to ratchet up tension between Russia and the West.

Russia decided to hit back against US and EU sanctions by barring some US and EU imports. And why shouldn’t it, after such gross provocation? But there’s a definite downside for innocent people.

Assad Policies Aided Rise of Islamic State Militant Group

The Islamic State, which metastasized from a group of militants seeking to overthrow the Syrian government into a marauding army gobbling up chunks of the Middle East, gained momentum early on from a calculated decision by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to go easy on it, according to people close to the regime.

Earlier in the three-year-old Syrian uprising, Mr. Assad decided to mostly avoid fighting the Islamic State to enable it to cannibalize the more secular rebel group supported by the West, the Free Syrian Army,...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a real reach. The spin is that Assad is somehow to blame for ISIS, even though they admit that ISIS opposed Assad.

New York Times Continues To Distort The Truth About Gaza

Hamas is the party that keeps extending this summer's bloody battle in the Gaza Strip, repeatedly breaking temporary truces and vowing to endlessly fire rockets into Israel until its demands are met.

NY Times BEX alert - Blamed for ISIS’ Rise in Syria, Assad Is Pushed to Escalate Fight

The extremist militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have attacked Syrian troops with new ferocity in recent weeks, taking over three northeastern military bases, beheading scores of soldiers and seizing new territory.

The jihadist offensive has prompted some panicked supporters of the Syrian government to sharply criticize the leadership, questioning why it appeared to allow ISIS to build a base in the northern Syria province of Raqqa for the last year, while claiming the Syrian Army was fighting terrorism. As far back as June, as ISIS fighters swept back into Syria with American weapons looted in Iraq, Elia Samaan, a government adviser, exclaimed, “Where is our air force?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Man, the propagandists don't even care if what they say makes any sense at all! Assad had nothing to do with the rise of ISIS. ISIS was (like Al Qaeda) a creation of the US, funded by the US and trained by the US in Jordan.

They are pushing way too hard on this.

We all need to be on the lookout for "something spectacular" to kick off WW3 for real!

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

Want Definitive Proof that the Mainstream Media is Scripted? Here it is.

ANALYSIS: The beheading of James Foley is a fake.

If you’ve been trying to view the ‘beheading’ of James Foley over the last two days, then I’d imagine you’ve found it well-nigh impossible. It seems that in Britain, if you watch it you may be committing an offence under the Terrorism Act. I don’t live in Britain any more, so I don’t have that problem. Here in France, I’m not allowed to be rude about French banks (each State to its own censorship of free speech) but watching grizzly videos is OK.
I watched the tape because a valued source suggested I should. These are my observations:

1.The prisoner is very clearly James Foley
2. His alleged executioner is from South London, and probably of West Indian genetic origin
3. Mr Foley does not display any fear consonant with imminent death
4. The ‘beheading’ is faked.

Corporate Media’s Biased Reporting on Iraq

On August 8th 2008, the U.S. announced that they had started carrying out air strikes in northern Iraq. The major reason given for this was that the United States couldn’t stand idly by while the Islamic State killed, displaced and persecuted minority groups, with the fate of the Yazidis at the forefront of the justification.

New Terror Narrative Emerging: ISIS Supports American Resistance

Daniel Taylor
Activist Post

In the ongoing effort by the establishment to demonize the Tea Party and resistance to an expanding federal government, a new narrative is emerging that could provide justification for a nation-wide crackdown on dissent.

The riots in Ferguson, Missouri are a focal point for an unfolding historical drama that could further divide the nation. Tribal passions are being stirred across the world by outside manipulators.

Members of The Islamic State (ISIS) are announcing their support for protesters in Ferguson, with one member saying on Twitter “It’s time to strike fear into the hearts of the oppressors.” Another tweet from ISIS supporter Abu Ottoman says, “Blacks in #Ferguson, there’s an alternative to this indignity: pick yourselves up with Islam, like #IS in #Iraq.”...

48 suspicious banking deaths

With the global financial system heading towards a major crash in the near future are these people buckling under the pressure of what they see coming or are they being silenced because of what they know?

Our advice is if JP Morgan offers you a job: politley decline. The list of top level bankers dying under suspicious circumstances has been growing rapidly in recent months.

Whether these are genuine deaths or something more sinister one thing is for certain, banking is becoming one of the most dangerous industries to be involved in right now with an extremely high death per employee ratio.

“Exodus” Now Hurling Real 5,000 Pound Bombs

Ponder this for a moment: 5,000 pound GBU 28 bunker-buster bombs were dropped on a single house in Gaza. Israel obviously can pinpoint a target when it wishes to do so. It makes many claims that it “did not intend” to strike a United Nations school or a hospital.

That is not true. Schools and hospitals are not struck by mistake. These are large buildings and Israel’s ability to pinpoint targets are demonstrable.

Israel still retains absolute mind control over the western world, thanks to the selling of an Israel narrative which was boosted high into the literary lights and onto movie screens with the fictional Israeli narrative written by Leon Uris in 1954.

Aug 22 06:59

Why such hype about the Michael Brown killing?

I dislike ultra-racism, hyper-ethnic chauvinism and plastic patriotism as much as the next person.

Introspection is a noble value; criticizing one’s own people when they do wrong is a righteous thing in the same way that parents who admonish their children when they misbehave are trying to help, not hurt, their children.

Defending one’s own simply by virtue of their race, culture, nationality or religion is a negative attribute, and leads to extreme narcissism, nepotism and other nasty expressions.

But I also believe in honest and fair treatment, and that is scarcely to be found on the issues of race, racism and ethnocentrism.

The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

As we run up to yet another anniversary of the 9-11 false-flag attacks, the government's controlled assets on the web are once again pushing the "no plane at the Pentagon" hoax as hard as they can, to give the corporate media an easy means to discredit those who question the official story while avoiding the really tough questions like, "Why did the BBC announce the collapse of World Trade Center 7 twenty six minutes before it actually happened?" Or, "How did President Bush's Secret Service know he was not a target sitting in that school on Florida?"

The media cannot ask, let alone answer, those questions, so the propagandists gin up this "No plane" theory and plant it online to give the corporate media an easy handle with which to ridicule and dismiss the whole idea of doubting the official story of 9-11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the wake of Richard Gage's C-SPAN appearance and the comment made by the New York Times Chief Correspondent David Sanger, "We've not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes" I am once again being flooded with emails demanding (under threats in some cases) that I simply MUST post the "evidence" that a passenger jet did not really crash into the Pentagon on 9-11.

WEBMASTER NOTE: Right now the corporate media is shoveling ISIS at us as hard as they can, in an obvious propaganda campaign reminiscent of the similar campaign about "Al Qaeda" and "Osama Bin Laden" that preceded 9-11. Given how desperate the US Government is to revive the war agenda, we should be concerned that a new false-flag attack, bigger and bloodier than the World Trade Towers, is being considered.

BEX ALERT - Top Hamas sheikh admits to June kidnapping of Israeli teens

Sheikh Saleh al-Arouri, a senior Hamas religious figure, is heard on the video saying that he “blessed the heroic action” which was “carried out by the al-Qassam Brigades” — the armed wing of Hamas. This action, “the kidnapping to Hebron of the three settlers,” was an “operation spoken of far and wide,” al-Arouri added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel just posted this story and as is to be expected, the corporate media is giving it headline treatment without questioning the story. Nobody ever came up with a reason why HAMAS, which at the time was trying to build world support for their Unity government, would have done such a stupid thing. Nobody has explained why the abductors, whose voices were captured in the cell phone call made by one of the victims, were speaking Hebrew.

Assuming that this is the real Saleh al-Arouri and he is not being intentionally mistranslated (again), why would he hand Israel such a potent propaganda weapon on a silver platter, especially since the IDF destroyed his home last June?

This does not pass the smell test at all!

Those who organized the MH17 false flag have now clearly given the instruction to their propaganda machine (aka MSM) to forget about this tragedy and to pretend like it never happened. Sure, there are a few courageous sources, such as the World Socialist Web Site, which do ask the right question "Why have the media and Obama administration gone silent on MH17?", but even most of the "alternative" media has really turned the page and forgotten about MH17.

We cannot allow this.

The Russian Team and the website Polismi in Russia have jointly translated the full detailed expert analysis of the MH17 downing into Russian and they are now asking for our - *your* - help in disseminating it in the Russian media worldwide and with all our - *your* - Russian-speaking friends, relatives and colleagues.

A Tale of Two Obituaries

I count myself among those not taken in by their blandishments. The late conservative journalist, Joseph Sobran, was another. Here is how he begins his classic essay, “The Jewish Establishment”:

In the early 1930s, Walter Duranty of the New York Times was in Moscow, covering Joe Stalin the way Joe Stalin wanted to be covered. To maintain favor and access, he expressly denied that there was famine in the Ukraine even while millions of Ukrainian Christians were being starved into submission. For his work Duranty won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism. To this day, the Times remains the most magisterial and respectable of American newspapers.

American journalist James Wright Foley was allegedly brutally murdered on video by terrorists of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS).

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

It is traditional US diplomacy to play a double game — on the one hand training, arming and financing terrorists to overthrow or destabilize non-compliant governments, while at the same time condemning those same malcontents when it is convenient to do so.

Putin could explain to Europeans that Russia is prepared to guarantee Europe’s security and, therefore, that Europe does not need Washington’s guarantee against a nonexistent Russian threat.

If this very reasonable and diplomatic approach to Europe fails, then Russia and China know that they must prepare for war.

Upside down reality persists. Truth is systematically suppressed. Big Lies substitute.

Police state Israel is called a democracy. How can it be when Jews alone have rights. Arab citizens are considered fifth column threats.

Elected Arab Knesset members are powerless. They're little more than potted plants. They're parliamentarians in name only.

They're treated like enemies of the state. They're unable to help the people they represent. They can't protect themselves when wrongfully persecuted and vilified.

They have murdered innocent people across this nation of all races. In fact from a statistical chart, if accurate shows they have murdered more unarmed whites than blacks.

A Marxist View of Gaza - “Hey, who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?” –Chico Marx

....... The video record from inside Gaza effectively puts paid to any protestations of Israeli restraint. American reporting may be prejudiced in Israel’s favor, op-eds may be overwhelmingly pro-Israel and Bibi Netanyahu may be able to get on US TV anytime he wants, but images of dead and dying women and children are hard to overlook.

For instance the Israeli claim that firing a warning shot saves lives took something of a knock when one of their dummy rounds killed four children who were feeding the family ducks on the roof of their home. The attack and its aftermath were caught on video. Similarly, the oft repeated statement that civilians are not targeted was discredited in rather gruesome fashion when naval gun fire killed four boys playing soccer on a Gaza beach. Unfortunately for the Israel propaganda machine just behind the beach was a hotel housing foreign correspondents who filmed the scene even as they were helping to gather up wounded and dead children.

Max Keiser says he quit "The Oracle" series on BBC because he wasn't allowed to mention Israel

The perfect example of Jewish Supremacist control of BBC output comes with the well-known and respected financial journalist Max Keiser. Commissioned to do a series called “The Oracle” for BBC World News, Keiser quit after ten episodes—because, as he announced on Twitter:

“The reason I quit my BBC show; got strict orders not to mention Israel in any context. This kind of censorship leads to #Gaza horror.”

In other words, Keiser, who now works for the RT news channel, was allowed to mention anything at all—except Israel, and by implication, Jews and the Jewish role in world financial scandals and problems.

In a second Twitter comment on the same subject, Keiser said that the BBC has a “‘no go’ policy re: Israel.”

He then linked to an article showing how the British government was actually arming Israel, and posed the question “Is this why? Revealed – Britain’s ‘role’ in arming Israel.”

Ebola and Climate Change: Are Humans Responsible for the Severity of the Current Outbreak?

In a study published in 2012, researchers asked national infectious disease experts in 30 different countries whether or not they thought climate change would affect infectious disease patterns in their countries. The majority agreed.

Nevertheless, it’s unclear whether these beliefs are driven by good science, or, as Malcolm Gladwell argued way back in 1995, a guilt-driven “idea of disease as a punishment for wickedness.”

In The West Respect for Truth No Longer Exists — Paul Craig Roberts

The Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money.

The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia.

“THEY PULLED ME BACK IN…”

How handy. All three US networks and the increasingly shackled BBC were ordered to drop Gaza reporting and refocus their camera teams on the suffering Yazidis and, all of a sudden, Iraq’s fleeing Christians.

This was a brilliant media ploy. The world, which was furious at the US for enabling Israel’s savaging of Gaza and killing of almost 2,000 Palestinians, switched its attention to the hitherto unknown Yazidis, and to Iraqi Christians. No one in the US had ever heard of Yazidis but that was ok. Uncle Sam to the rescue.

No mention was made that Iraq’s Christians had been safe and sound under President Saddam Hussein – even privileged – until President George Bush invaded and destroyed Iraq. We can expect the same fate for Syria’s Christians if the protection of the Assad regime is torn away by the US-engineered uprising. We will then shed crocodile tears for Syria’s Christians.

We Have Had Enough of Elie Wiesel and His Ilk

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the London Times refused to run an ad featuring Elie Wiesel speaking out against Hamas’ use of children as human shields.

The ad’s headline reads: “Jews rejected child sacrifice 3,500 years ago. Now it’s Hamas’ turn.” Wiesel’s statement is a blatant lie and the London Times knew it.

Jews have never stopped sacrificing their children. The Hannibal Protocol is an IDF directive that orders soldiers to take ‘necessary measures’ to prevent their comrades from being captured by enemy forces. ‘Necessary measures’ include risking the life of the Israeli soldier and anyone who happens to be in his vicinity. Similarly, the Kastner Affair shows that at the peak of the Shoah, Ben Gurion and the Zionist establishment were willing to sacrifice many Jewish lives on the altar of the Zionist goal.

POLL: 6 Words To Describe Various World Leaders

What Canadians really think about Harper, Obama and Putin

There are a host of differences between the leaders of Canada and Russia, but Stephen Harper and Vladimir Putin do have one thing in common: about 40 per cent of Canadians would describe both leaders as "secretive".

Polling firm surveyed more than 1,500 respondents and asked them to select up to six words from a predetermined list that they would use to describe various world leaders. Here are the most popular choices for each prime minister or president.

What world do you live in? Putin, East Ukraine and the Old World Order

It's difficult (in a face-palm kind of way) to listen to people, even well-informed educated people and 'experts', opine on global politics when they are clearly ignorant of (or studiously ignore) this most important fact. There is no 'democracy' in this world, and there has not been for, oh... forever. Western populations are so damn dumbed down and dissociated that they actually can't figure out that nothing of any significance changes with a change of government, despite all the evidence before them. In fact, it's worse than that, things do change, but for the worse from the point of view of the average citizen. Who will argue that Western warmongering and the divide between rich and poor has increased dramatically over the past 40 years? How many administrations does that period comprise, about 10? Democrat, Republican, Democrat, Republican... Whoopee frickin' doo. In the UK, it's Conservative, Labour, Conservative, Labour... In both countries, the supposedly 'bleeding-heart lefty' Democrat and Labour governments fronted by Tony Blair and then Obama actually out-warmongered their supposedly traditionally uber-warmongering opposition parties.

How do you explain that? Easy. There is no difference between them because neither of them, as parties or Presidents or Prime Ministers, actually control anything of any significance. Someone else does.

The Ebola Outbreak: U.S. Sponsored Bioterror?

We can now be extraordinarily confident that the U.S. government is lying, in key material respects, about the latest Ebola outbreak—and not just because it lies about nearly everything of political consequence. This article shows that there are compelling reasons to believe we are being told three big lies about Ebola. It also offers a simple, rational, yet disturbing, explanation that very tidily accounts for all three lies. The explanation supposes that the current Ebola outbreak consists in an act of U.S.-linked bioterror.

The press takes a holiday…every day

In a minute, I’m going to print a stunning 1978 conversation between a US reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission.

I discovered the conversation in the late 1980s, and ever since then, I’ve been looking at it from various angles, finding new implications. Here, I want to point out that the conversation was public knowledge at the time.

Anyone who was anyone in Washington politics, in media, in think-tanks, had access to it. Understood its meaning.

But no one shouted from the rooftops. No one used the conversation to force a scandal. No one in the press protested loudly.

The conversation revealed that the entire basis of the Constitution had been torpedoed, that the people who were running US national policy were agents of an elite shadow group. No question about it.

BBC in crisis over Cliff raid: Police fury at TV chiefs who screened dramatic swoop

The BBC caused a sensation with its coverage when the star’s Berkshire penthouse was searched for five hours last week.

The force revealed it had been contacted ‘weeks ago’ by a BBC reporter who had found out about their ongoing top-secret investigation into shock allegations that Sir Cliff had sexually assaulted a boy at a 1980s concert.

In an astonishing statement published late yesterday, police said they had been ‘reluctant’ to co-operate with the broadcaster but believed if they did not, the BBC would run the story anyway, potentially jeopardising the highly sensitive investigation.

The "destroyed Russian armor column": Poroshenko vs Carl Sagan

I cannot prove a negative. But then, I am not the one making the claim. The Ukies and a few British reporters did. And they presented ZERO proof. As Carl Sagan so well put it "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" and the notion that Russia would send in only 23 armored vehicles, with no protection, in broad daylight is quite extraordinary. As is the notion that in a region chock-full of Russian military units nobody would have taken any action to save the column. So even if a Russian unit got into the Ukraine by mistaken (at the age of GPS and GLONASS, yet another extraordinary claim!) the notion that those who sent it did nothing to protect or extract their own men is also extraordinary. As for the British reporters, they don't even have a cellphone to show even bad images, maybe taken from far away? They have nothing at all? Quite extraordinary again.

The Real Issue Behind the Ferguson, Missouri Police Response: Protest Is Treated As Terrorism In America Today

Washington Post writer Radley Balko is the leading expert on militarization of police in America. Balko has testified to Congress and written books on the subject.

Balko said today that the real issue behind the Ferguson, Missouri police response wasn’t the militarized police response – or the minor incidences of looting, rock-throwing and possibly Molotov cocktails by a handful of protesters – but a crackdown by government on all protest:

What we’re seeing in Ferguson, this is not a local issue, really. I mean, this is something that’s been driven by national policies, by policies that Congress has approved of and has oversight of, and could end tomorrow, if they wanted to.

New Video of SWAT Team Attack on Al-Jazeera in Ferguson You Haven’t Seen

Infowars reporter Jakari Jackson was standing behind Al-Jazeera America and recorded this footage of the SWAT team purposely shooting at an obvious news crew who announced their presence.

“This is press over here! Why are you shooting at us with bullets?” One of Al-Jazeera’s reporters yelled to the SWAT team. “This is media over here trying to cover the story!”

The SWAT team responded by shooting tear gas at the reporters, who were by themselves blocks away from the nearest protestor.

After previous footage of the attack went viral across the globe, the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department responded by stating that “SWAT team officers were assisting the media in moving their camera equipment and media personnel to a safer area with their consent so that they could continue to cover the event.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do so LOVE how American cops, all over this nation, are interpreting the phrase "to protect and serve" in this country.

At the moment, in any state in this country, police are behaving in terrorizing ways against the people they are allegedly there to help.

At this point, never, EVER call the police if you see something suspicious; you are much more likely to get your own head blown off in such a circumstance, even if you have absolutely nothing to do with what is happening.

Take a fire arms safety course, get a gun, if you can, and be able to protect yourself, calmly and cautiously, should something happen from which you need to protect you and yours.

But what I am seeing in this case, outside of the police attempting to collectively lie their heads off, is a very clear pattern of trying to flame up controversy, and riots, across the country.

So to all our brothers and sisters of all backgrounds and creeds, please understand something: this Administration would love NOTHING less than to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and invoke martial law on this country. And perhaps, even suspend this year's Congressional election.

So, peaceful protests? Absolutely.

But be aware; there may well be agents-provocateurs among you, inserted by the government in order to inflame crowds to get them to do really dumb things.

The smelly person advocating the use of Molotov cocktails against any law enforcement agency is most likely an undercover CIA/FBI/DHS plant, tasked with making you look really bad and evil.

MH370 and MH17 — Vanishing point…

Follow the engine wreckage. Follow the cockpit wreckage. Follow the motive. One cannot even imagine the tectonic geopolitical plates clashing were the Kiev regime to be deemed responsible. It would be the vanishing point for the whole – warped – notion of the Empire of Chaos’s “indispensable” exceptionalism.

First, passenger airliner MH370 vanished from Planet Earth. Then MH370 vanished from the news cycle. First, MH17 was shot down by “Putin’s missile” – as Planet Earth was told. Then MH17 vanished from the news cycle.

Where’s Baudrillard when we need him? Had he been alive, the dervish of simulacra would have already deconstructed these two Malaysian planes as mirror images; from absolute vanishing to maximum exposure, then vanished again. They might as well have been abducted – and shot – by aliens. Now you see them, now you don’t.

Israeli News Site Debunks Netanyahu's Tunnels-to-Kindergartens Myth

One of the most important strikes in the propaganda war for Israel in the last month was dealt by the New York Times and CNN when they ran long pieces giving credence to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that Hamas was building tunnels out of Gaza aimed at kindergartens in nearby kibbutzes.

Back on July 22, Netanyahu asserted– on the basis of this cartoon drawing he tweeted– that the tunnels were aimed at Israeli kindergartens.

In fact (and as we reported), the only Israelis attacked from the tunnels were Israeli soldiers. But a week after Netanyahu’s statement, both the Times and CNN took the prime minister’s claim at face value. The Times’s piece, “ Tunnels Lead Right to Heart of Israeli Fear” gave priority to rumors over actual information, and reported that “ one tunnel was found over the weekend” in Kibbutz Be’eri. The piece quoted a resident of the kibbutz saying,

Russian Defense Ministry denies reports military column crossed into Ukraine

Russia’s Defense Ministry has denied Kiev’s report that it “destroyed the Russian military column” which allegedly crossed into Ukraine, saying that no such column ever existed.

“No Russian military column that allegedly crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border at night or during the day ever existed,” said Major General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry.

The best scenario would be, the official said, if it was a “phantom” that the Ukrainian military destroyed “rather than refugees or their own servicemen.”

“Such statements – based on fantasies, or journalists’ assumptions, to be precise – should not be subject for a serious discussion by top officials of any country,” Konashenkov said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The important question is WHY Russia would do such a thing? Putin is trying to prevent a war. It is Kiev and the US that are trying to start one.

Russell Brand slams Bill O’Reilly over Ferguson protests

British comedian Russell Brand took to his online series The Trews to criticize Bill O’Reilly of Fox News for insisting that protesters angry over the death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson are not letting justice take its course.

On the latest episode of The Trews, Brand performed running commentary of a recent O’Reilly segment where the Fox News host begins by saying the death of Brown, 18, at the hands of a police officer

“is now being investigated by state and local authorities, but that hasn’t stopped rioting and looting in the area.”

Ferguson police: Michael Brown was robbery suspect

Michael Brown, the black teenager shot by police on Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri, was a suspect in a robbery just moments earlier, police have said.

Police say Mr Brown, 18, was one of two men suspected of robbing a nearby convenience store.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assuming these photos are not after-the-fact stagings, at best they show an altercation between two people, not a robbery.

Missouri is a "shall issue" state for carry permits. Why didn't the store owner have a weapon and use it to defend his store with, if he was actually being robbed?

According to the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Michael Brown had no criminal record at all, and he was a week away from starting college. That does not fit the profile of a convenience store holdup man.

But ...

Even if Michael Brown was a suspect, THE POLICE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO EMPTY THEIR GUNS INTO SOMEONE JUST FOR BEING A SUSPECT!

Why didn't the officer use his taser?

More to the point, why didn't the officer call in the shooting on his police car radio? The recording of the St. Louis dispatch radio calls confirm that they only learned of the shooting from the news media. St. Louis dispatch called the Ferguson police station and they had not heard anything at all. The fact that the officer failed to immediately report the shooting is not consistent with the officer thinking his shooting of a suspect was justified.

The corporate media is still trying to spin this as a white versus black issue, to divide us against each other. But this is an issue of We The People, OF ALL COLORS, fed up with a domestic police force armed with military weapons and trained by the Israelis to treat Americans the way the IDF treats the Palestinians.

Since 9-11, the domestic police in the US have murdered 8 times as many innocent Americans as terrorists have, and we are supposed to quietly accept that?

I don't think so!

Cease fire talks between Israel and Hamas have been extended for an additional five days.

The extension in the talks was made possible because Hamas is standing firm in its humanitarian demand that Israel lift the siege on Gaza, while Israel is feeling the negative worldwide vibes over its massive military assault.

The vibes are negative everywhere, that is, except in the U.S., where in an Atlantic interview, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared to kick off her 2016 presidential campaign with a ringing endorsement of Israel’s massive assault on the Palestinians of Gaza.

For his part, as the man who holds the reins of responsibility, President Obama has called a halt to U.S. Hellfire missile shipments to Israel until arrangements are made to clear with the White House all future transfers of Hellfire missiles.

Robin Williams "Had No Financial Problems"

Mara Buxbaum, Williams' longtime publicist and the president of ID-PR, previously revealed the actor had "been battling severe depression" prior to his death. She also asked the public to respect his family's privacy. But because there was no suicide note—and because Williams had publicly disclosed his alleged money troubles—some media questioned whether finances played a part in his decision to kill himself.

Indelicate as the press' speculation was, Buxbaum was forced to address the reports Wednesday. "Robin had no financial problems," she told The Wrap. "We should be blessed to have Robin's financial status."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Based on the information given by the Marin Sheriff's press conference, in particular the position of the body, I am convinced that Robin William died by accident while engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation. That is why the body was "partly clothed" and why there is no note. He did not intend to kill himself. The seated position with a belt around the neck is a common method of engaging in this sexual practice, which is briefly referred to in the film "Rising Sun." But it is VERY DANGEROUS, especially when done while alone and accidents are common. Many famous people have died this way and usually it is covered up to save embarrassment (or to protect the profits for the existing catalog of work). According to the English Recusant Literature, Martin Luther died this way at the hands of his wife (a former nun). Others include rock star Michael Hutchence, composer Frantisek Kotzwara, cartoonist Vaughn Bodē, Stephen Milligan MP, and of course actor David Carradine.

Pulitzer Prize winners demand DOJ stops threatening New York Times journalist with jail

A coalition of 14 Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists issued statements this week in support of James Risen, a New York Times reporter who faces possible imprisonment for refusing to disclose the identity of a source to the United States government.

Risen was first subpoenaed in 2008 to testify in the case against James Sterling, a former Central Intelligence Agency employee who was later charged under the Espionage Act for allegedly disclosing CIA secrets to the Times reporter. Risen was subpoenaed again when the first court order expired, and unsuccessfully appealed to the US Supreme Court earlier this year in an effort to have the country’s top justices revoke the request to have the journalist testify during the Sterling trial.

Federal prosecutors can now seek to jail Risen if the journalist continues to fight their efforts to have him testify, and on Monday a group of his colleagues issued statements condemning the Justice Department’s pursuit of a journalist’s source.

NATO is desperate for war

All hail Ukraine as the new Somalia; a fitting Frankenstein created by the exceptionalist Empire of Chaos.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is desperate; it is itching for a war in battlefield Ukraine at any cost.

Let’s start with Pentagon supremo, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who has waxed lyrical over the Russian Bear’s “threat”: “When you see the build-up of Russian troops and the sophistication of those troops, the training of those troops, the heavy military equipment that’s being put along that border, of course it’s a reality, it’s a threat, it’s a possibility – absolutely.”

Gaza, Ebola, Iraq … are we approaching disaster overload?

Reflecting on the responses to the number of man-made emergencies detonating or still smouldering around the world earlier this year, from Syria to Ukraine and from Nigeria and South Sudan to Central African Republic (CAR), Kofi Annan appeared uncharacteristically weary.

“You sometimes have a feeling that the global community – and even the big powers – can only focus on one crisis at a time,” the former UN secretary general said.

Tunnels-to-kindergartens propaganda Netanyahu peddled to NYT and CNN is exploded by Israeli news site

The Israeli site +972 has blown that propaganda completely out of the water. A well-researched article in Hebrew that it translated from an educational worker near Gaza states that the tunnels do not appear to be targeted at civilians and they come out more than a mile from any kibbutz, let alone the kindergartens.

In short, the tunnels fear was hysteria, drummed up by the Israeli government to heighten war fever, and then purveyed by the New York Times and CNN.

Video: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Celebrates Castro’s 88th Birthday

No surprise here. MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell took time to celebrate communist dictator Fidel Castro's 88th birthday. The segment showed Cubans in lockstep gushing over Castro. The clip even shows a now grown up Elian Gonzales with tears of joy streaming down his face. This segment was just another MSNBC propaganda piece to push their socialist agenda.

Obama: Netanyahu “Too Strong” to Make Peace

In order for peace to ever occur between Israel and the Palestinians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs to be weakened, United States President Barack Obama asserted.

In an interview with the New York Times’ Thomas L. Friedman, the president said that Netanyahu was “too strong” and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas [Abu Mazen] was “too weak.”

According to Obama, in order for Netanyhau to come to the negotiating table and make concessions, the prime minister needs to feel more pressure from his cabinet and Israelis.

The president pointed to the fact that Netanyahu’s “poll numbers are a lot higher than mine,” which “were greatly boosted by the war in Gaza.”

Obama argued that “if he [Netanyahu] doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises, including taking on the settler movement.”

American broadcasters see RT as major challenge, want to try to compete

The Ukraine crisis has shown that Russia has been strong in getting its message across to international audiences, a meeting of US international media chiefs concluded, outlining the need for Washington to create a Russian-language TV news channel.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), a bipartisan agency that supervises government-sponsored media, targeting international audiences, met Wednesday to discuss the coverage of the Ukraine crisis.

That’s where a proposal for setting up a TV channel for the Russian-speaking audience was voiced. It was important to do so “under the circumstances of this kind of information battlefield in and around Russia and Ukraine,” according to a participant of the meeting.

ISIS, Israel and US duplicity

Mainstream media wants us to believe ISIS sprung up out of a hole in the ground and became powerful enough to take over large cities without any assistance from the big powers. The ineptitude of that narrative is an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

The US government claims it has launched several air strikes against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militants in Iraq. These are the same ISIS militants that the US and its client states are supporting in Syria; the same breed and stock of militants they let loose like wild dogs to lynch Gaddafi and wreak havoc in Libya.

A month of solidarity in London — does the BBC get the message?

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of London last Saturday (August 9), honoring the call for a global “day of rage” in response to the ongoing Israeli atrocities in Gaza. The organizers estimate that 150,000 protesters attended, making it the biggest Gaza-solidarity demonstration ever to take place in Britain.

The organizers set a precedent by choosing to launch the demonstration from the headquarters of the BBC in London. The choice was justified, as it reflected the common sentiments shared by almost everyone who’s followed the news organ closely. For weeks, the anger at the “balanced” coverage the BBC claims to produce, has been building steadily, as each day brought with it more bad news from Gaza. To quote Tariq Ali in his interview with the BBC’s Mark Sanders: “we shouldn’t underestimate the anger with the BBC at its coverage of the Palestine-Israel conflict. In all my experience, I have never known a demonstration to begin outside the BBC headquarters; that’s how angry people are…”

Tunnels-to-kindergartens propaganda Netanyahu peddled to NYT and CNN is exploded by Israeli news site

One of the most important strikes in the propaganda war for Israel in the last month was dealt by the New York Times and CNN when they ran long pieces giving credence to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claim that Hamas was building tunnels out of Gaza aimed at kindergartens in nearby kibbutzes.

Back on July 22, Netanyahu asserted– on the basis of this cartoon drawing he tweeted– that the tunnels were aimed at Israeli kindergartens.

In fact (and as we reported), the only Israelis attacked from the tunnels were Israeli soldiers. But a week after Netanyahu’s statement, both the Times and CNN took the prime minister’s claim at face value. The Times’s piece, “Tunnels Lead Right to Heart of Israeli Fear” gave priority to rumors over actual information, and reported that “one tunnel was found over the weekend” in Kibbutz Be’eri.

Ukrainian Journalist Openly Calls for Genocide on Hromadske TV, Financed by the US and the Netherlands

Hromadske TV is now officially the Ukrainian version of Rwandan RTLM. Just like RTLM called for the extermination of the Tutsi, calling them Inyenzi, or cockroaches, so now Hromadske TV is legitimizing the genocide of the population of Novorossiya. From Inyenzi to Colorados, we have come full circle. Hromadske TV, this mouthpiece of Ukrainian genocide, is financed directly by US and Dutch embassies.

Boycott Israel: Now More Than Ever

It bears repeating. Committed ordinary people can make a difference. It’s the only way constructive change is possible. Bottom up alone works. Never top down. Israel’s day of reckoning awaits.

For many decades, Israel waged genocidal war against millions of defenseless Palestinians with impunity.

Accountability is long overdue. High crimes against peace were committed. Culpable Israeli officials must be punished to the full extent of the law.

The global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement for freedom, justice and equality works. Applying them with stepped up teeth more than ever is vital.

Canadian grassroots actions for Gaza pave way for change of consciousness

The volume of support for Gaza has increased dramatically, said Christine Jones, co-chair of the Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA). A large volume of emails have been pouring in to the CPA, she said, thanking the group for sharing information on rallies happening across the country.

"People are seeing the reality of what is happening in Gaza, they understand that human rights are universal and not to be cherry-picked. They understand that it is wrong to bomb hospitals and UN schools, and its wrong to destroy infrastructure and sewage systems," said Jones.

"I have been quite surprised and gratified that there seems to be an emergence of people being able to publically identify that this is a fundamental human rights issue," she said. As people express their concern over Israel's violations of international law, she added, others also start to catch on.

It immediately got readers objecting to the Guardian's decision on its letters page, including our letter below. One reader wrote: "You presumably invoke free speech to accept this advert. However, I would be interested to know whether you would accept a similar advertisement from a pro-Palestinian organisation comparing the behaviour of Israel with that of Nazi Germany.

NATO Baiting Russia into War

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

Russia is consistently portrayed in the Western media as the “aggressor” amid the ongoing Ukrainian conflict; however, it is clear through overt moves by NATO’s proxy regime in Kiev, that attempts are being made to intentionally provoke, not defend against Moscow’s ire.

The New York Times, in a recent article admits that the military campaign Kiev is carrying out against its own citizens in eastern Ukraine is overt brutality carried out by literal flag-waving Nazis, with the all but stated goal of provoking a Russian invasion...

Hillary Clinton’s Criminality in Benghazi

Last week, former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton writes that her handling of the Benghazi crisis of September 11, 2012 actually provides more impetus for a White House run.

Rather than trotting around the book circuit claiming the mantle of White House frontrunner thanks to her inaction and malfeasance in Benghazi, she should be sitting in the defendant’s chair in a court of law.

The question for Hillary Clinton is not whether she should be president. The question is whether she should be in prison.

NYT Discovers Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis at War

Now, as the Ukrainian military tightens its noose around the remaining rebel strongholds, battering them with artillery fire and aerial bombardments, thousands of neo-Nazi militia members are again pressing to the front as fiercely motivated fighters determined to kill as many ethnic Russians as they can. It is a remarkable story but one that the mainstream U.S. news media would prefer not to notice.

The New York Times reported almost in passing on Sunday that the Ukrainian government’s offensive against ethnic Russian rebels in the east has unleashed far-right paramilitary militias that have even raised a neo-Nazi banner over the conquered town of Marinka, just west of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk.

Today's journalism cockroaches

Journalism in America might not be dead, but it is flopping around in a severely wounded condition based on the rampant dishonesty, obfuscation and outright lying that’s going on. The examples of agenda-driven misreporting and blatant political catering are legion and painfully obvious to anyone paying even minimal attention, but out here on the frontlines of the culture war it is best described as truly bizarre and obscenely putrid.
***
But when the president of the United States evidences pure racism based on color of skin instead of content of character, as he did in the Trayvon Martin debacle, our First Amendment abusing media are silent. Not a peep.

I will carry on with my First Amendment rights in my fight to expose the cockroaches, the abject criminal abuse of power and outrageous runaway corruption infesting our government and media. Sometimes in this sad culture war, harsh words are appropriate to identify vile, nasty conditions and violations, dishonesty and hate.

I don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. Historical strategies have proven that in order to win such a war, sometimes you have to bring a howitzer to a wet-towel fight. Bring it.

The Hidden History of How the U.S. Was Used to Create Israel (Video)

Talk by Alison Weir, Executive Director of If Americans Knew, President of the Council for the National Interest, and author of the book "Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the U.S. Was Used to Create Israel" recorded July 30, 2014 at the Common Good Cafe at University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle, WA.

(In first half of the video Ms Weir lays out some examples of the lopsided, pro-Israel propaganda passed off as news that US mainstream media uses to indoctrinate the US public with the idea that Israel can do no wrong. Second half of video starting around 0:29:00 she gets into the history of US involvement and participation from the late 19th century onwards in the creation of the modern state of Israel. /SR)

Modi Rewrites India’s Tryst with Destiny (II)

From the American viewpoint, India’s SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization) membership literally caps the trajectory of US-Indian strategic partnership.The message is clear: India is unavailable as a ‘counterweight’ against China or as a silent partner to ‘isolate’ Russia.

The heart of the matter is that the SCO has disallowed a security vacuum appearing in Central Asia, which the NATO could have used as an alibi to step in. Put differently, so long as the SCO is around, NATO’s eastward expansion beyond the Caucasus runs into formidable obstacles.

That is to say, SCO challenges the US strategy to project the NATO as the global security organization that bypasses the United Nations as the provider of security. This is precisely why the US has opposed the SCO and did all it could to debunk the grouping.

Christopher Bollyn - "The Downing of MH17 - Is Israel Involved?"

Furthermore, Yaron Mofaz, a relative of Shaul Mofaz, former chief of staff of the Israeli military, oddly took a photograph of the ill-fated Malaysian plane at the airport in Amsterdam shortly before it was shot down, which he then provided to Reuters.

Yaron Mofaz also happens to be a director of a Mofaz family company that works closely with a company in Florida that owns a former Malaysia Airlines airliner, virtually identical to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and MH17.

This Malaysian airliner, it just so happens, was sent to Israel in late 2013 where it was parked in a hangar in Tel Aviv. For these and other reasons it is logical that we consider the possibility that the shooting down of MH17 was an Israeli false-flag operation with a twist.

Therefore, the real question is not whether Israel was involved, but to what degree was Israel involved in the atrocity? -
