Buckling to Bigotry: The Newseum Dishonors Murdered Palestinian Journalists

Just two days before Palestinians commemorate the 65th anniversary of the Nakba, the names of two Palestinian cameramen targeted and killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza last November were dropped from a dedication ceremony held to honor “reporters, photographers and broadcasters who have died reporting the news” over the past year. The move followed an Israel lobby pressure campaign led by anti-Palestinian organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and the American Jewish Committee, efforts that were openly supported by the Israeli government.

Charlie Hebdo And The War For Civilisation

Even rare dissident fig leaves on newspapers like the Guardian dismiss as asinine and, yes, offensive, the suggestion that they should risk offending their corporate employers and advertisers. Not only is no attempt made to defend such a right, the very idea is dismissed as nonsense unworthy even of discussion.

Dying ‘good career move’ for French hate-mag

The French so-called satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo – more accurately a hate-inciting, racist rag - has published its first post-massacre edition this week, with print sales going through the roof.

Which just goes to prove the hoary old showbiz observation that “dying can be a good career move.” That dictum describes how washed-up artists and other celebrities are often rescued from obscurity following their death, with sales of old records or biographies benefiting from a surge in renewed public interest.

Mockingbird Fail: CNN ‘Reporter’ Chris Cuomo Calls French Terrorist ‘African-American’, Before CIA Handler Steps in to Correct Him

As each day passes of media coverage (management) of the Paris Attacks, it’s becoming more and more clear that CNN is playing a pivotal role managing storylines on the ground as well as spinning various talking points out from New York and Atlanta. Over the last 7 days, the shear amount of hyperbole, half-truths, wild speculation, conspiracy theories, false-starts, back-tracking – and flat out lies – is breathtaking.

Suffice to say, the appearance of perfectly rolled-out and streamlined narratives looks very much like it’s been ironed-out by the CIA’s communications department and Operation Mockingbird.

One moment which didn’t go very well was when CNN’s propagandist-in-training, Chris Cuomo forgot he was in France, and had to be straightened-out by his more experienced ‘handler’, Anderson Cooper, regarded by many as an intelligence agency media embed. What followed was priceless…

JE NE SUIS PAS CHARLIE

There are more doubts and questions in the Charlie Hebdo affair than there will ever be answers. In part this is because the French security forces silenced witnesses, killing three assumed perpetrators in a display which seems to say that Dirty Harry movies are now part of French training programs.

And then we have the sudden death by apparent suicide of a police commissioner in charge of the investigation just as he was writing his report alone at night, an event which received little mainline press coverage. A man in his forties in the midst of likely the biggest case of his career just decides to kill himself?

What the Charlie Hebdo Execution Video Really Shows

The lesson is that we as news consumers must create our own critical distance from the “news” because we cannot trust our corporate media to do that work for us. They are far too close to power. In fact, they are power.

What Are the Odds? Guy Caught Plotting Violent Jihad Against Capitol as Republicans Holding Out on DHS Funding Bill

It just keeps getting better and better here in the American headlines. Are even diehard Fox and MSNBC viewers still buying any of this stuff?

Just a few days ago, news hit that ISIS supposedly hacked CENTCOM at the same time that President Obama was announcing new cyber security legislation. Superb Wag The Dog timing, no?

Now, a violent jihad on the Capitol has been thwarted by the FBI. WHEW!

But wait! There’s more…

Another Fake FBI ‘Terror Plot’ – Informant Frames Christopher Lee Cornell in Ohio

Eager to capitalize on the media wave generated by the Paris Attacks, jobsworth FBI agents decided to accelerate the frame-up of 20 year old Christopher Lee Cornell (photo, left) from Cincinnati, Ohio, claiming the youth was planning a “pipe bomb attack” against the nation’s Capitol in Washington DC.

Amazingly, US media jumped all over this story, trying to somehow tie it to Paris, and also claim that Cornell was “linked to ISIS”, and that this was somehow an “ISIS-inspired attack”, only no attack actually took place.

Dying ‘good career move’ for French hate-mag

As ever, the Muslim world is responding with restraint and dignity to the latest vile conduct by Western so-called free-speech secularism.

The French so-called satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo – more accurately a hate-inciting, racist rag – has published its first post-massacre edition this week, with print sales going through the roof.

The magazine has abused the principle of free speech as a cynical cover to promote hate speech and in particular to foment prejudice against the Muslim population of France and Europe more generally.

Muslims have become the most vulnerable community in Europe and around the world for persecution by Western state and non-state bigots. Over the past week, Muslim communities and places of worship have been attacked by mobs in Germany and France amid the climate of hatred that the likes of Charlie Hebdo and its state benefactors have been responsible for.

Lawsuit says Caltech Provost and others ignored Israeli spying

Dr. Troian’s allegations describe subversion of one of America’s most important scientific institutions and provide a potential case study of how U.S. taxpayer funded scientific technology is stolen by Israel.

Following is a deeply disturbing excerpt from a civil lawsuit filed by a Caltech professor against Caltech, often named the world’s top research university. Caltech’s official name is the California Institute of Technology.

According to the lawsuit, a small coterie of Caltech professors and administrators ignored Israeli spying and theft of taxpayer-funded U.S. technology and then retaliated against the professor for reporting it.

Bob Carr: Australia’s UN vote on Palestine does a disservice to all sides

More Australians winced than applauded when they learned of their country’s very last vote at the end of its two year term on the security council.

It was a lousy way to wrap up a two year term on the security council, given the intense competition to win the seat.

Blindfolding the Republic Obama’s Sordid Record on Censorship and Secrecy by JAMES BOVARD

"Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."
- Robert A. Heinlein

Watch your language! (even when speaking the undeniable truth)

Willcox: “Many critics, though, of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.”

Poor Tim Willcox, now terrorized for doing a professional job at the Paris anti-terror march.

In a live TV report the BBC’s Willcox was interviewing people in the crowd and talking to a Jewish woman about her fears of persecution.

She said: “The situation is going back to the days of the 1930s in Europe.”

Willcox replied: “Many critics, though, of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.”

She countered: “We can’t do an amalgam.”

Willcox said: “You understand everything is seen from different perspectives.”

The reporter’s remarks were widely criticized by viewers, with some calling for his resignation.

BEX Alert - "Dershowitz: Nobody Should Listen to Carter on Middle East "

Dershowitz: 'Jimmy Carter Has the Blood of Thousands on His Hands'

President Jimmy Carter is the reason Israel and the Palestinians are still at war and nobody should listen to anything Carter has to say about the Middle East, according to Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who appeared Wednesday on "America’s Forum" on NewsmaxTV with Anti-Defamation League President Abe Foxman.

The men weighed in on Carter’s recent suggestion that the International Criminal Court in The Hague should investigate both Israel and Hamas for possible war crimes.

Watch your language! (even when speaking the undeniable truth)

BBC Watch is linked to CiF Watch, which is “dedicated to monitoring antisemitism and combating the assault on Israel’s legitimacy”. And to CAMERA. All three have the same two editors.

Hadar Sela is Managing Editor. She “has lived in Israel for over three decades… and has written pre-emptive reports on several anti-Israel campaigns, including the flotillas and the Global March to Jerusalem in March 2012”.

Funny, I thought the flotillas were bringing humanitarian aid to the desperate civilians cruelly imprisoned, blockaded and bombarded in the tiny enclave of Gaza. How is that deemed to be anti-Israel unless you’re a paranoid Zionist or one of the mindless criminal thugs imposing the blockade?

The other is Adam Levick, also Managing Editor of CiF Watch. He “made aliyah” in 2009. Aliya is moving your home to Israel. Since when did we or our national broadcaster take orders from a couple of Israelis?

The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo

A core tenet of journalism is answering the question “why.” It’s the media’s duty to explain “why” an event happened so that readers will actually understand what they’re reading. Leave out the “why” and then assumptions and stereotypes fill in the blank, always readily supplied by politicians whose ridiculous answers are left unquestioned by the corporate media.

Because the real “why” was unexplained in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an obviously false culprit was created, leading to a moronic national discussion in the U.S. media about whether Islam was “inherently” violent.

For the media to even pose this question either betrays a blinding ignorance about the Middle East and Islam, or a conscious willingness to manipulate public sentiment by only interviewing so-called experts who believe such nonsense.

First 'Charlie Hebdo' issue since attack sells out

The first edition of Charlie Hebdo since terror attacks in Paris last week left 17 people dead sold out at newsstands across France shortly after going on sale Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! That is really impressive when you think about it. One week ago, Charlie Hebdo was broke, asking for donations, and struggling to publish less than 50,000 copies of their magazine. Then their offices were attacked, their staff severely reduced, the survivors traumatized, and here we are just one week later with 3 million printed magazines in 16 languages all delivered to the newstands around the world?

Anyone who has ever worked in publishing knows this is an impossible feat. The lead time for content creation, translation into 16 languages, layout for those 16 versions, adding of additional printing resources, and supply chain time, all suggest this new issue had to be in production before last week's attack!

In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre and as more and more information comes to light surrounding the details of the attacks as well as the connections between the perpetrators, groups, and NATO-based intelligence agencies, the suggestion that the attacks were, in reality, of the false flag nature, is being proven more and more valid by the hour...

Michael Bay to direct drama about killing of US ambassador in Benghazi

Transformers director to take on adaptation of Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, which tells of the killing of four men on 11 September 2012

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, given Bey's close association with the government (he once narrated a puff-piece documentary about the CIA) and his glorification of war in "Pearl Harbor", I expect his film about Benghazi will be less about happened and more about what the government wants you to think happened.

I won't be seeing this one.

Netanyahu gatecrashes Paris rally

Gatecrashing Netanyahu's latest offense. Showing up where not wanted.

French President Francois Hollande’s national security advisor, Jacques Audibert, asked him not to come, through his Israeli counterpart, Yossi Cohen. Saying Sunday’s event wanted to demonstrate solidarity with France. Avoid divisive issues. Like Israeli/Palestinian relations.

“(S)everal hours after (he said) he would not be traveling to Paris, his office issued a statement stating that he would in fact be at the march.”

“Hollande’s anger at Netanyahu was evident during (Sunday evening’s) ceremony,” said Haaretz. Held at Paris’ Grand Synagogue. “(A)ttended by hundreds of members of the local Jewish community. Hollande sat through most of the ceremony, but when Netanyahu’s turn at the podium arrived,” he walked out. A snub easily noticed.

What is the purpose of Mainstream Media ?

The American Media is a propaganda echo machine of US government policy. The reporters know it, they know they are part of a system of propaganda.

Traditionally, the role of media has been to inform society and keep an eye on the powers that be. Today media follows a very different model – for the most part the mainstream merely echoes the opinions of the elite.

Is it any wonder audiences are looking for alternative media sources?

Patrick Henningsen: We have a huge problem with ownership of the Media in the United States. Seven major corporations are in control of all US mainstream media. On the boards of those corporations you have people who share board positions with CBS, Westinghouse, New York Times, Carlyle Group, Boeing, etc. You have people sitting on the board of major Industrial Military companies and also the Media companies… CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is one of the great war promoters in history in my opinion.

Dieudonné arrested over 'apology for terrorism' for allegedly supporting Charlie Hebdo killer

Anti-semitic French comedian Dieudonné was arrested after he seemingly compared himself to the terrorist who murdered four people at a kosher supermarket in Paris last week.

Dieudonné M’Bala M’bala, 48, who was being held for questioning at a Paris police station, could face possible charges of "apology for terrorism".

Paris state prosecutors opened a formal investigation on Monday night into remarks made by the comedian on his Facebook page after the vast "Republican march" in Paris on Sunday.

After mocking the media superlatives about the march, the comedian declared: "As for me, I feel I am Charlie Coulibaly".

Why Is the Real American Sniper -- a Hate-Filled Killer -- Being Treated as a Hero?

I have to confess: I was suckered by the trailer for American Sniper. It’s a masterpiece of short-form tension – a confluence of sound and image so viscerally evocative it feels almost domineering. You cannot resist. You will be stressed out. You will feel. Or, as I believe I put it in a blog about the trailer, “Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper trailer will ruin your pants.”

But however effective it is as a piece of cinema, even a cursory look into the film’s backstory – and particularly the public reaction to its release – raises disturbing questions about which stories we choose to codify into truth, and whose, and why, and the messy social costs of transmogrifying real life into entertainment.

As Corporate Pundits call for BLASPHEMY Worldwide After Hebdo, Catholic Bishops Call for 'Dialogue with Muslims' and to "Promote The Good Things Found In Other Religions"

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops sent out an e-mail alert today following the events in Paris, titled 'Dialogue and Encounter Combat Extremism,' which stated "we remember our call to 'recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values" found in other religions (Nostra Aetate, no. 2). In the wake of violence, Auxiliary Bishop Robert McElroy of San Francisco reminds us that “we continue to labor for greater understanding and mutual commitment to peace and religious freedom." In the document "Dialogue with Muslims," the bishops expressed their conviction that "encounter and dialogue with persons different than ourselves offers the best opportunity for fraternal growth, enrichment, witness, and ultimately peace."

Maurice Sinet, 80, who works under the pen name Sine, faces charges of "inciting racial hatred" for a column he wrote last July in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The piece sparked a summer slanging match among the Parisian intelligentsia and ended in his dismissal from the magazine.

UVA reinstates fraternity after police can't find evidence of Rolling Stone rape claims

Months after a troublesome Rolling Stone article detailed rape claims on campus, the University of Virginia has reinstated its chapter of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity.

The decision came after Charlottesville police told UVA "that their investigation has not revealed any substantive basis to confirm that the allegations raised in the Rolling Stone article occurred at Phi Kappa Psi," the university said in a statement.

"We welcome Phi Kappa Psi, and we look forward to working with all fraternities and sororities in enhancing and promoting a safe environment for all," UVA President Teresa A. Sullivan said.

In November, Rolling Stone published "A Rape on Campus" featuring a woman identified only as Jackie. In the article, Jackie said she was brutally raped by seven men at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house during a party her freshman year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

90s-style militant feminism rears its ugly head again, including a tsunami of fake rape charges as "empowerment."

These are the biggest hypocrites celebrating free speech today in Paris

France’s prime minister said the people would “cry out their love of liberty.” And they did—marchers in Paris chanted “liberté” in response to the murder of the cartoonists, who were well-known for their provocative cartoons lampooning everyone, regardless of taste or decency.

But as Daniel Wickham points out (as amplified by the journalist Glenn Greenwald), many of the 40 leaders attending the rally in Paris don’t have the best record of defending the principle of free speech so viciously attacked earlier this week:

Islamophobia Allowed, Anti-semitism Not – Charlie Hebdo’s Double Standards

In 2009 a left-wing cartoonist was fired and charged with ‘anti-semitism’ for suggesting that Jean Sarkozy, son of the French president, was converting to Judaism for financial reasons.

The writer, Maurice Sinet (pen name ‘Sine‘), faced criminal charges of “inciting racial hatred” for the column he wrote in the magazine. He was dismissed from Charlie Hebdo due to the controversy his article sparked.

This incident highlights the hypocrisy at work at Charlie Hebdo in the way they react to what is perceived as ‘anti-semitism’ but allow and encourage ‘Islamophobia’.

Jacob Weisberg, Jewish Zionist CFR Member says to ESCALATE BLASPEMY for "Best Response" to Hebdo Murders

Jacob Weisberg is a Jewish Zionist, Newsweek columnist and is very angry about the BDS boycott of Israel, insisting "the Idea of Boycotting Israel Is Repellent." His younger brother was in the CIA, now a TV producer boasting about deceptiveness and lying. Weisberg said to "blame the libertarians" for the 2008 economic crisis and that libertarianism is dead. A member of Yale's 'Elihu' Secret Society, Weisberg always defends the government, and even wrote 'In Defense of Government.' John Kerry once summoned Weisberg to his senate office to personally recruit him into Yale's occult group, 'Skull and Bones.' Weisberg is a secular Jew and has recently called for "mocking religion." In the past, he has scoffed at his own supposed religion, Judaism. On January 8, he praised NY Cops after seeing them issue parking tickets. This guy is really a piece of work, and his solution to the Paris murders is to increase blasphemy.

Governments ‘fundamentally do not believe in democracy’ – Paris attacks & Press freedom

Norman Soloman, founder of U.S. Institute for Public Accuracy and part of the team behind ExposeFacts.org, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about the fight for journalists’ free speech. He says part of the role of governments is to deceive, and no one should be surprised. James Risen, a New York Times journalist faces jail time as the government tries to force him to give up his sources, and even without threatening jail governments can apply pressure to ensure people lose their jobs. Veteran journalist Seymour Hersh was forced to publish revelations about the US government misleading the public over chemicals weapons use in Syria in a London magazine because his usual magazine declined to publish it. He says this is symptomatic of the surveillance state, as it becomes so far reaching confidentiality of journalists and would-be whistleblowers cannot be guaranteed – those in power want the ‘uninformed consent of the governed’ and do not believe in democracy.

Not surprisingly, much of the “where is the Muslim outrage” outrage is coming from… Fox News, as Media Matters notes. Fox’s own Monica Crowley, for example, said that Muslims “should be condemning” the attack and that she hadn’t “heard any condemnation… from any groups.” Fox News’ America’s Newsroom guest Steve Emerson complained, “you don’t see denunciations of radical Islam, by name, by mainstream Islamic groups.” Bob Beckel, a host of Fox News’ The Five host said Muslims were “being quiet” about the shooting and accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of keeping “their mouth shut when things happen.”

Last summer a group of well-known physicians published an open letter criticizing Israel’s massacre of Gazans.

BBC - Doubts raised over authenticity of Charlie Hebdo footage.

According to analysts, it appears that the footage was recorded over two takes, evidenced by a placement marker that appears by the front left wheel of the vehicle as the gunmen return from apparently gunning down a wounded Gendarme.

The killing of the french policeman is also being called into question, due to the ‘lack of blood spatter consistent with that of a close range shooting’.

BEX Alert - " Richard Perle: World Can't Cope With Terrorism, but Must Learn"

Perle, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and former chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under President Ronald Reagan, said part of the issue is a failure to face reality.

"The reality is that within the community of people who believe in Islam, there is a group, a small group but nevertheless a group, whose numbers are in the thousands and maybe tens or hundreds of thousands," he said.

"[They] have a vision of Islam that entails the use of violence to bring about the triumph of Islam over the rest of the world.

"Until we face that fact and design strategies built on that recognition, these things will continue to happen."

Martin Luther King assassinated by US Govt: King Family civil trial verdict

*hyperlinks live at source*

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrpqnZYAB6w

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript. Bill Pepper’s site has the civil trial on video.

Charlie Hebdo Massacre: Another Staged Event to Incite War and Destroy Freedom?

Many analysts are questioning the dubious timing and nature of all of these incidents, which come at just the right moment to lend credence to the US-led coalition against ISIS.It is nothing short of miraculous that just as various Western countries gear up for military strikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, ‘terror incidents’ hit their respective homelands right on cue to give the politicians their belated ‘casus belli’ for joining the campaign to be rid of ISIS.

French politicians and other Western leaders have been pontificating about Western ‘values’ and have selectively invoked ‘freedom of speech.’ “We live in a free and open democracy which has freedom of speech,” the West’s dishonest leaders say.

“Radical Muslims don’t believe in ‘our values,’ hence the necessity to fight them overseas” is the standard establishment talking point, trotted out time and again by the professional script readers fronting as presidents and prime ministers.

FLASHBACK - 'Anti-Semitic' satire divides liberal Paris

The piece was published without controversy - until several days later, when a radio presenter referred to it as anti-Semitic. The families of those concerned were said to be 'sickened'. Val, who took the controversial decision to re-publish a Danish newspaper's cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed two years ago in the name of freedom of the press, agreed that the piece was offensive and told its author to apologise.

Siné refused, saying he would rather 'cut his own nuts off' and was, more or less, fired.

Mourning Charlie Hebdo Journalists, While Ignoring that US-NATO State-Sponsored Terrorism is the “Number One Killer” of Journalists

In the wake of the terrorist attack by self-proclaimed Al-Qaeda operatives killing 12 people including 8 journalists from the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, the Western elite and mainstream media display of compassion and indignation highlights their complaisance towards Western and Israeli state terrorism.

Charlie Hebdo and Free Speech

Early years

In 1960, Georges "Professeur Choron" Bernier and François Cavanna launched a monthly magazine entitled Hara-Kiri.[5] Choron acted as the director of publication and Cavanna as its editor. Eventually Cavanna gathered together a team which included Roland Topor, Fred, Jean-Marc Reiser, Georges Wolinski, Gébé (fr), and Cabu. After an early reader's letter accused them of being "dumb and nasty" ("bête et méchant"), the phrase became an official slogan for the magazine and made it into everyday language in France.

Hara-Kiri was briefly banned in 1961, and again for six months in 1966. A few contributors did not return along with the newspaper, such as Gébé, Cabu, Topor, and Fred. New members of the team included Delfeil de Ton, Pierre Fournier, and Willem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, while the media proclaims Charlie Hebdo a champion of free speech being suppressed by the Muslims, the truth is that the magazine's publishers have been repeatedly shut down BY THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT ITSELF for intentionally offensive content!

Israel Big Winners at ICC: Palestinians and US Taxpayers Too!

Turn on Your Smart Phone! Justice Calling! See You in Court!

This past week the International Criminal Court at the Hague accepted the application of Palestine to join the court. This so-called risky move by Palestinian President Abbas was both applauded by the world and sadly panned by the USA and Israel as being provocative and an obstacle to the “peace process”.Strange the USA and Israeli governments attempt to argue against a day in civil court right? Talk about being on the wrong side of humanity! Ouch!

I mean there is NO better way to behave in a civil society with our fellow man than going to court.

Going to court is the most excellent non-violent way to seek justice when injustice exists unchecked. It exposes our bad behavior to objective peers for a judgment that help us all better live together under commonly held values. Yet here we are watching the lost USA and Israel stand-alone against justice! Sad really!

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

Speaking outside Elysée Palace in the aftermath of this week’s terror killings in France, former President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned the violence as “an attack on civilization.” Coiffured, sun-tanned and nattily dressed, Sarkozy’s solemn words made him appear like the embodiment of civility.

That’s a quaint turn in etiquette by a politician who is mired in allegations of sleaze and corruption, as well as war crimes.

Sarkozy wasn’t too concerned about “civilization” when he and his British allies launched the NATO bombing campaign of Libya in March 2011 in stark violation of a UN mandate. That seven-month onslaught led to the murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – from whom Sarkozy had gladly received hush-hush political donations in the past, before stabbing him in the back.

Charlie Hebdo Massacre: Another Staged Event to Incite War and Destroy Freedom?

Mourning Charlie Hebdo Journalists, While Ignoring that US-NATO State-Sponsored Terrorism is the “Number One Killer” of Journalists By Julie Lévesque

snip: Before the James Foley and Steven Sotloff beheadings dozens of journalists were killed in Syria by terrorists armed, trained and financed by NATO countries and their antidemocratic allies such as Saudi Arabia. Hundreds of civilians had also been beheaded long before them, around 200 in one single village, according to a Human Rights Watch report. (See Julie Lévesque, The History of ISIS Beheadings: Part of the “Training Manual” of US Sponsored Syria “Pro-Democracy” Terrorists, Global Research, September 19, 2014)

The outrage and indignation, however, was reserved for the Western beheaded journalists. The war in Syria has been deadly for journalists, with 153 killed according to some estimates, thanks to NATO-sponsored terrorism. No Western journalist holding signs of compassion for Syrian journalists has been seen.

Hot Air and the Paris Atrocities By Sean Gabb

snips: The continuing hymn of praise to freedom of speech would sound better if it were seriously meant. I believe that the writers and cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo had the moral right to say whatever they pleased about Islam, or anything else. But I also believe that Luke O’Farrell and Garron Helm should not have been sent to prison for being rude to or about Jews. Nick Griffin should not have been prosecuted for saying less against Islam than was published in Charlie Hebdo. The Reverend Alan Clifford should not have been threatened with prosecution in 2013, when he handed out leaflets at a gay pride march in Norwich. Almost every day, in England alone, someone gets into trouble for opening his mouth. Where for them are the defenders of freedom of speech, now more fashionably than bravely holding up pencils or waving candles?

While many French react to the attack against Charlie Hebdo denouncing Islam and demonstrating in the streets, Thierry Meyssan points out that the jihadist interpretation is impossible. While it would be tempting for him to see it as an Al Qaeda or Daesh operation, he envisages another, much more dangerous hypothesis.

Jan 10 14:10

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

A satirical magazine championed by Western war criminals for its “free speech” to dehumanize Muslims is hailed as “heroic?” While an informative, serious news channel like Press TV is banned. Now that is farcical cartoon.

Evidently, it’s acceptable to insult Islam, according to Western select use of free speech because it suits political agendas of demonizing Muslim countries so that they can be attacked with Western warplanes or covert terrorist proxies. But it is not acceptable to satirize Zionism or Western ruling classes.

Paris attack becomes Political Football in Israel and Palestine

France has recently supported the Palestinian people and their cause at the UN Security Council, causing panic among Israeli officials in Tel Aviv who have said on several occasions that they fear they have lost the entire European continent as a result. They have also expressed worries that the European position, led by France, is turning against the Israeli occupation and in favor of the Palestinian people’s struggle for freedom, independence, and statehood.

Many Israeli analysts have urged authorities in their country to work to regain European support, fearing that losing France would mean losing Europe as a whole. The response to these fears has been an unprecedented campaign of Israeli incitement against Muslim immigrants in Europe.

Europe is still capable of differentiating between a bunch of crazy terrorists, a crazy occupation, and an innocent citizen living under occupation seeking help.

NATO Trips on Own Lies with U-Turn on ‘Russian Aggressor’

With the flip of a coin, it seems, all this grave anti-Russian bombast is suddenly redundant, with the US-led NATO alliance, through its European civilian cypher Stoltenberg, apparently stretching out the hand of co-operation to Russia.

NATO’s civilian figurehead Jens Stoltenberg this week urged Russia to be a partner against terrorism. He was speaking the day after the deadly gun attack on a magazine in Paris where 12 people, including three police officers, were killed by assailants purporting to be affiliated with radical Islamists.

During a visit to Germany, the NATO general secretary called upon Moscow to be “an ally in the fight against terrorism” – adding: “We think it is important that Russia, which is our biggest neighbor in Europe, and NATO are working together on important issues like fighting terror.”

A review of David Smith-Ferri’s “Where Days Are Stones”

Notwithstanding, the worlds of journalism and the Arts are seldom bridged. Universities endow “chairs” for poets who eschew the ugly side of human existence, so that those “honored few” may focus on their own cerebral delectations. The prose of modern journalists seldom, if ever, rises to the loftiest levels of observers like Shakespeare, Euripides, Dante, Hemingway or Edna Millay. And yet, as journalists or artists, many strive to weave ourselves into the fabric of our times; to capture the Zeitgeist—to make it knowable; to join the conversation. David Smith-Ferri is one such weaver, one such poet-journalist, who proves his value again in his third collection of poems, Where Days Are Stones (143 pp; Haley’s, Athol, MA; 2014).

“Now there is nowhere to hide
from their message
and the question it implies:
War is a horror. Always.
What am I doing to stop
and prevent it?”

(The Streisand Effect got its name when Barbra Streisand attempted to sue a photographer, who while documenting California coastal erosion also snapped her beachfront domicile -- which the singer-actress viewed as a breach of privacy.

Purported journalist Marinka Peschmann is not exactly an experienced researcher on the 51dOgw0PmzLsubject and it shows in her thin little 2012 volume, Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer. One would think that this 5×8 inch paperback with only 132 pages of actual text would at least be spare with any unnecessary verbiage, but in fact the opposite is the case. It’s full of passages in which she and former Clinton White House legal office aide Linda Tripp just chew the fat, speculating about one thing or another. Not until her 12th and last chapter does she come through with her really batty theory of what actually happened the day Foster died.

Readers expect greater accuracy from New York Times columnists.

How dare Mr. Roger Cohen suggest that Gaza, a part of my homeland, is “nowhere!”

If Mr. Cohen is at a loss to know where Gaza lies, allow me to guide him. The Gaza Strip, as well as Gaza City, were both part and parcel of Historic Palestine, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Following the colossal injustice that resulted in the displacement of more than half of the Palestinian people, and then the creation of what we know today as the state of Israel, and the subsequent military occupation of the remaining Palestinian lands of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Gaza Strip become part and parcel of an Israeli-militarily-occupied territory. It is this military occupation under which many of my friends and colleagues were born and live to this day.

I appreciate humor that blows away boundaries.

But Rogen should hang his head in shame.

Demonizing Fidel Castro: “Normalization” and the Thrust of Anti-Cuba Propaganda

The Main-Stream Media (MSM) is targeting a young and diverse population through Fusion, a new multimedia news service launched in 2013 and it is described as a “news, pop culture and satire TV and digital network.” Fusion is an American digital cable and satellite TV network that is jointly owned by the Disney-ABC Television Group, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company and Univision Communications Inc.

At CNN, fear never takes a holiday

Whoa, Happy Holidays to you, too. Look, I'm a pretty level-headed guy -- but by that point I was looking to turn around and head back to my basement, or check whether the New York State Thruway has roadside bomb shelters to duck and cover. Every story was pointed in the same direction. "'X' is happening halfway around the world. Is 'X' going to kill you? How afraid should you be of 'X'?" It's a shame, because the issues potentially raised by the topics that night -- Middle East policy, human rights, free speech, public health in Africa -- are all vitally important.

It Wasn't North Korea Or Russia: Sony Hack "Perpetrator" Said To Be Laid-Off, Disgruntled Employee

First it was, with "absolute certainly", North Korea. Then, out of the blue, an even more ridiculous theory emerged about the origin of the Sony hackers: Russia. Now, we finally get the truth, and as it turns out it was neither of the abovementioned sovereign actors who had nothing better to do than to hack movie scripts and racist emails: it was Sony's own disgruntled worker who was the source of the hack. According to Politico, FBI agents investigating the Sony Pictures hack were briefed Monday by a security firm that says its research points to laid-off Sony staff, not North Korea, as the perpetrator.

"Researchers from the cyber intelligence company Norse have said their own investigation into the data on the Sony attack doesn’t point to North Korea at all and instead indicates some combination of a disgruntled employee and hackers for piracy groups is at fault."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

Media Go Into Panic On How To Spin Record Cold

The liberal media are going into panic mode attempting to salvage their precious global warming crisis as yet another record cold winter takes shape across the country. Desperately hoping to purge the public’s memory of failed predictions of warm, snowless winters, the media are now going into overdrive trying to claim global warming theory predicted colder and snowier winters all along.

The shameless effort to spin this year’s cold, early winter as the predicted result of global warming is typified by a media request sent out by International Business Times journalist Connor Sheets.

Sandy Hook Denial Will Be Criminalized, Like Holocaust Denial?

On December 27, 2014, a press release informed us that William Brandon Shanley has filed a lawsuit, naming some famous mainstream media persons (even Rupert) as the defendants. In his pleadings to the District Court, Shanley says:

“Defendants entered in a multi-year conspiracy, meeting in groups separately and together, to commit fraud and terrorism, i.e., to brainwash the public into thinking a lone gunman drill known as the “Sandy Hook Massacre” was real, when in fact it was a staged FEMA Exercise ….. These crimes were undertaken with the intent of subverting the US Constitution and to affect national, state and local laws. This fraud involved lying to the public, faking news, publishing one-sided news reports, censoring reality, suppressing facts, and deliberately skewing the news to shift public perceptions.”

David Bird, Missing Wall Street Journal Reporter, Foresaw an Oil Crash

On the cold, wintry afternoon of January 11, 2014, David Bird, a reporter who covered energy markets for the Wall Street Journal, told his wife he was going out for a walk and left his home in Long Hill, New Jersey in a red jacket with yellow zippers. Despite his colorful attire, the involvement of hundreds of volunteers, law enforcement officials, and the FBI in the search, Bird has vanished without a trace.

As Wall Street On Parade previously reported in January, for the three months prior to his disappearance, Bird was reporting on a supply glut and growing stockpiles of oil. A newly retrieved article by Bird that appeared on line at the Wall Street Journal on August 21, 2013, shows the reporter had also presciently made an early connection between the Federal Reserve ending its massive bond-buying program known as “quantitative easing” and a potential crash in the price of oil – a crash that has now cut the price of oil almost in half in the past six months.

The most censored health news stories of 2014 - here's what the establishment doesn't want you to remember

2014 was a year in which we watched the mainstream media devolve into a spot-on depiction of George Orwell's Ministry of Truth, engaging in White House-ordered news story blackouts, CDC-inspired anti-health propaganda that endangered the public and corporate-funded disinfo campaigns disguised as news.

But what were the biggest health-related censored news stories of the year? That's what this Natural News article is all about. Consider it a short list of things the establishment doesn't want you to remember actually happened.

False Flagging the World towards War. The CIA Weaponizes Hollywood

Molten metal under Trade Center rubble could NOT have come from jet fuel

The U.S. government, the 9/11 Commission, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, FEMA and the mainstream media all do the same thing. When they can’t explain something that contradicts the official version of events on 9/11, they simply pretend the questions don’t exist.

Among the most crucial examples of this are the large pools of molten metal found under the rubble of the two twin towers of the World Trade Center and Building 7. The molten metal burned under the rubble for weeks, with the final fires not being extinguished until December of 2001, three months after the disaster.

The official story can’t explain this; it doesn’t even try. That’s because the molten metal points to a controlled demolition – explosive charges combined with a material that causes a chemical reaction creating extreme heat to cut through steel beams.

Now Homeland upsets Israel: Controversial scene in season finale prompts fury after former prime minister Menachem Begin is compared to fictional Taliban leader

The pair are discussing the possibility of protecting fictional Afghan Taliban leader, Haissam Haqqani, in order to ensure that he will not give political asylum to terrorists.

Berenson describes Haqqani as a terrorist who 'recently killed 36 Americans'.

Adal responds: 'Menachem Begin killed 91 British soldiers at the King David hotel before he became prime minister.'

The Homeland CIA agent was referring to a bombing at the King David hotel in Jerusalem in 1946 that was carried out by the Irgun, a right-wing militant Jewish organization which was headed by Menachem Begin.

HOW THE NEW YORK TIMES HIDES THE TRUTH ABOUT PALESTINE

The massive upsurge of Israeli violence against Palestinians is invisible to The New York Times. (Ashraf Amra / APA images)

Two recent stories in The New York Times involve violence against Palestinian and Israeli children. But it is striking how differently the stories are treated based on the identity of the victim.

The first, from today, is headlined “Israeli Girl Severely Wounded in Firebomb Attack in West Bank.” The second, from November, is headlined “Palestinian Shot by Israeli Troops at Gaza Border.” Both are by Isabel Kershner.

NY TIMES CRIES ABOUT THE PEOPLE IT KILLED

Sulzberger's Slimes has a long and disgusting history of creating disasters, and then expressing false sympathy for the very people its dishonest reporting has victimized. This was seen recently when a few editorial crocodile tears were shed for two murdered New York police officers who would still be alive today were it not for Sulzberger's unremitting race-baiting and cop-bashing.

Today's Jewish whine, a book review actually, is about "the human costs of America's forever wars". Here's a snippet:

"War cracks people’s lives apart, unmasks the most extreme emotions, fuels the deepest existential questions. Even as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan morph into shapeless struggles with no clear ends in sight, they have given birth to an extraordinary outpouring of writing that tries to make sense of it all."

NY Times says a Palestinian majority would ‘endanger Israel’s democratic ideals’

And: “a Palestinian majority” would not just endanger Israel’s Jewish character, but its “democratic ideals?” Isn’t that like saying democracy would endanger a democracy? Not when you’re talking about Arabs! Writes Donald Johnson: “Imagine them saying that about any other ethnic group in the world. Interpreted charitably, they might be saying that a one state solution might lead to ethnic strife between extremists on one or both sides, or something like that, but if so, they should spell it out. Their brains just shut down when writing on this subject.”

The racism against Palestinians in the mainstream press is so casual it’s shocking. People would be picketed if they wrote this about an American ethnic group.

BBC TV’s director fears for the future of Jews in the UK

Danny Cohen, the director of television at the BBC, is usually in the news to talk about the next big thing in British television. He is known for helping commission popular British shows such as the coming-of-age sitcom “The Inbetweeners” and the BAFTA award-winning “Skins.” Now he oversees the BBC’s four main channels.

However, on Sunday, Cohen gave the discussion about anti-Semitism in Europe a potent jolt.

FLASHBACK 2001 - FOX NEWS - Report: Bin Laden Already Dead

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.

"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.

Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

Redress Online: BBC executive Danny Cohen publicly endorses key Zionist mantra

A senior BBC executive has publicly come out as an advocate of Zionism.

Danny Cohen, who is the director of BBC Television, claimed that anti-Semitism has become so bad that he has to question the long-term future for Jews in Britain.

Danny Cohen, Director of BBC TV

He stopped short of calling on British Jews to emigrate to Israel or of endorsing Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s intention to change the Israeli constitution to define Israel as “the nation state of one people only – the Jewish people – and of no other people”.

A basic tenet of Zionism – and a key principle underlying the foundation of Israel – is that Jews and gentiles are incompatible, that whenever Jews and gentiles mix there will be anti-Semitism and that, therefore, the state of Israel exists as a safe haven for Jews escaping anti-Semitism.

I read this excerpt from his recent article and thought finally someone in mainstream media is honestly discussing the foreign policy of America, just to eventually find out he is actually talking about Putin. However, Lloyd does go on to imply American foreign policy can be described much the same way.

On This Christmas, Let Us Consider An “Intervention” - Ben Swann

When Fox News reports predictably on a story dealing with police protests or immigration or war, we as viewers are not turning to Fox to be informed. We turn to Fox because we already know what we believe on these subjects and the only purpose of Fox in our mind is to validate those beliefs. It happens with all media... it even happens here at Benswann.com.

This Christmas I hope that in your conversations, family gatherings and time with loved ones, you will remember that there are NOT two sides to every story (a belief rooted in the left/right paradigm) but that there are many sides to every story. Those sides are not as simple as points of view, but those sides are usually represented by real people.

BBC’s Kafkaesque response to complaint over Gaza coverage

Last month, the BBC sent an email to the UK-based campaigning organization Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), which was almost comical in its arrogance.

It was a response to a complaint made by PSC in October that BBC online reports were referring to the Gaza ceasefire as holding, despite the fact that by the end of October, Israel had breached the ceasefire numerous times since it was signed on 26 August.

In fact, Israel has fired on Palestinians in Gaza almost on a daily basis.

In its initial complaint, PSC referred to the website of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), which documents incidents of ceasefire breaches. These breaches had been collated in an article published by Middle East Monitor (MEMO), which reported that there was more than one Israeli attack on Gaza every day in September. The MEMO article was also included in PSC’s submission.

The trick is pretty simple, as detailed by Gawker’s Miserable Shitehawk (no, really, that’s the byline) — with video of a call-and-response protest chant that goes “We can’t stop! We won’t stop! ’Til killer cops are in cell blocks,” just cut the clip short, right after the word “cops.” What you end up getting is an abrupt phrase that might sound an awful lot like “kill a cop,” especially have you have a newscaster telling you so. Many viewers of Baltimore’s WBFF probably still believe this happened, through no fault of their own.

Emails Reveal US State Department Influenced Sony’s “The Interview” so as to Encourage Assassination and Regime Change in North Korea

The Daily Beast reported yesterday on leaked emails from the Sony hack which show that the United States government was involved at high levels with the content development of The Interview, especially its controversial ending depicting the assassination of North Korean ruler Kim Jong-Un. As the report’s headline states, “Sony Emails Say State Department Blessed Kim Jong-Un Assassination in ‘The Interview.’” The emails also reveal that a RAND corporation senior defense analyst who consulted on the film went beyond “blessing” and outright influenced the end of the film, encouraging the CEO of Sony Entertainment to leave the assassination scene as it was (in spite of misgivings at Sony) for the sake of encouraging North Koreans to actually assassinate Kim Jong-Un and depose his regime when the movie eventually leaks into that country.

Palestine, Israel and the News Media

On November 18 of this year, the news media was awash with the news of the killing of four rabbis at a synagogue in Jerusalem. This is headline news for CNN and the New York Times, the latter of which had the nerve to say this: “Witnesses and Israeli leaders were particularly horrified at the religious overtones of an attack on a synagogue….”

Where, one may naively ask, were these august news outlets during the past several weeks, as Israeli settlers, protected and even aided by Israeli soldiers, desecrated sacred mosques in Jerusalem? Where were the horrified reports of dead and bloodied Palestinians? What about the complete desecration of Muslim holy sites? Were no witnesses and Palestinian ‘leaders horrified at the religious overtones of an attack on a’ mosque?

WATCH THE WICKED WITCH OF THE JERUSALEM POST MELT DOWN

The following lecture by Caroline Glick meted out to Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference last Thursday is simultaneously so over the top and so typical of apologists for Israel that it deserves wide attention.

Glick, the deputy managing editor of the Jerusalem Post, is a popular right wing public figure in Israel and abroad. Her fans can’t get enough of her, note the uploader of the video (below) thinks she’s “brilliant” and you can hear audience members cheering her on as she berates Ambassador Vahr in this clip. She got a lot of airtime in The New Yorker last month.

As a longtime Glick-watcher I have developed a deep appreciation for her mobile facial expressions and body language. There’s never any doubt how much disdain she has for her adversaries. Whether it’s a good tactic for dealing with diplomats, though– well, judge for yourself.

Pirates with Nukes

NeoCon Glenn Beck is a devoted cheerleader of Zionism. Making things worse, he is also a Dispensationalist. Departing from the solid research on condemning the failed philosophy of Progressivism, Beck demeans his audience with a false history of Palestine and the nature of the Israeli state. His religious doctrine regarding Israel makes him an apostate. Duping well intentions, but ill-informed viewers into accepting the crimes of Israel, as the will of God, is why he is a Trojan horse.

He is just one of the countless buffoons or propagandists who earned their place in the media circus by proving their loyalty to a gang of criminals. Israel is no ally of the United States. Zionism is not a victim. "Likudnick" Benjamin Bebe Netanyahu is no friend of America. Most importantly, not all Jews are Zionists or even support the state of Israel.

Journalism ethics take a hit with Rolling Stone's unravelling rape story

Even bad doctors must have qualifications, and are bound by enforceable ethics. Not so journalists; in fact, anyone who says he's a journalist is one.

And as revenues implode and the death spiral of traditional journalism accelerates, such journalistic ethics as once existed are rapidly becoming artifacts.

As Andrew Sullivan, the former editor of The New Republic and Atlantic magazines, put it recently, there is no longer any "sense of an ethical line ... It is survival at all costs."

Among other things, the new breed is adept at sticking a finger in the air and sensing trends and going with them. Joining social movements can make you look worthy; it also results in treasured Facebook "shares" and re-tweets.

That is the only possible explanation for the travesty published last month by Rolling Stone magazine, generally considered a pillar of traditional, aggressive journalism.

Zero Dark Thirty wins ‘Albert Speer Oscar’ for Best Propaganda Film

It’s called “Hollywood history”, where the corporate studio machines in Los Angeles spend hundreds of millions of dollars in order to craft and precisely tailor historical events to suit the prevailing political paradigm.

‘Hollywood history’ is very much in fashion these days. From Lincoln to Dubya, and from Blackhawk Down to The Iron Lady, they constitute a significant portion of today’s major releases. That list keeps growing every year. There’s only one problem however, with tailoring a story to fit neatly into a prevailing political paradigm… and over the last 100 years, the Germans and the Soviets did this too – with devastating effect, but back then they just called it propaganda. These highly scripted narratives are what passes for official history these days.

Are Rush Limbaugh And Fox News Still Laughing About Torture?

Last spring, Palin appeared before an NRA convention crowd and laughed about how liberals supposedly coddle America's mortal adversaries. "Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," said Palin. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists," The NRA audience roared with approval, but even some conservative commentators who saw the tape of Palin's wisecrack took offense, upset that she had linked bodily torture with a Christian sacrament. ("It's disgusting.")

Palin, of course, hardly stands alone among conservative media commentators who have spent years not only downplaying the grievous practice of torture adopted by the Bush administration, but who have routinely made light of the cruel tactic previously banned by the United States.

A GALLERY OF FAKE DEAD BIN LADENS

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The defenders of the US use of torture continue to make the claim that torture led them to Osama bin Laden. This is yet another self-serving lie. The Pakistanis were actually the ones who raided that house, and only after it was over did the neighbors speculate that Osama bin Laden lived there, which is when the Obama administration stepped in to steal the "glory" for themselves, only to discover that it was not Osama in the house (who actually died of natural causes in December 2001), which is what prompted the sloppy fake photos to try to save face.

When Police and Journalists Become “Media Partners”

Major news media consider the FSU shooting more or less a closed case. After all, journalists appear to have been spoon-fed a story that includes its own sort of “The End” moment. A madman with a gun showed up in a public place. Terrified witnesses were interviewed and their fearful testimony publicized. The shooter’s bizarre online statements were duly noted. Then, official pleas for “unity,” “strength,” and “healing” were unquestioningly parroted, and less than two days later the entire affair was capped off with a photo op candlelight vigil.

With the notion of a full scale, coordinated media production in mind, it should be unsurprising that law enforcement and news media now consider themselves to be “partners” in such a tragedy’s public presentation.

U.S. PROTESTERS DEMAND: END SECRECY, RELEASE THE TEXTS ON TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP

Cassidy Regan, trade organizer for Popular Resistance, remarked that after public pressure the European Union recently agreed to release its negotiating proposals for the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership to the public. The EU wanted to release the full text of the agreement but was blocked by the United States.

“The trade agreements being drafted in secret threaten everything from worker rights and wages to public health and access to medicines. The negotiators keep texts hidden because these agreements aren’t made with the public in mind — instead, they serve to give transnational corporations further power to exploit people and the planet for the sake of profit. The unprecedented lack of transparency denies communities’ right to know policies that could impact so many aspects of our lives, for generations to come.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the TPP is negotiated behind the backs of the American people, and with no transparency whatsoever, demonstrates, painfully clearly, that the US government is being run BY the Corporations; OF the Corporations; and FOR the Corporations.

Fox melts down after torture report: ‘The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome!’

Fox News analysts, hosts and reporters on Tuesday wasted no time in blasting Democrats after Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released a report condemning the CIA’s use of torture and other enhanced interrogation techniques.

Just moments after Feinstein announced on the floor of the Senate that the Intelligence Committee had made the long-delayed torture report public, Fox News National Security Analyst K.T. McFarland insisted that Democrats were going to “do harm” to the country by angering terrorists.

McFarland, who said that torture techniques were both legal and justified by the horrific terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, argued that Democrats were only releasing the report for political reasons.

Rolling Stone recently published a shocking story titled “A Rape on Campus” written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely. The horrifying details of this narrative roused the nation. Feminists, social justice activists, and the mainstream media led a vicious and hysterical attack on the University of Virginia, fraternity men, and “rape culture.”

Recent reporting has cast the story in doubt. While reviewing the evidence below, please ask yourself the following question: “Can Rolling Stone’s malicious activism be tolerated?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ask yourself another question. Was Rolling Stone set up, to "punish" it for articles exposing Wall Street fraud such as those by Matt Taibbi?

Rolling Stone revises apology on UVA rape story

Rolling Stone has clarified its apology over a story that had reported a female student was gang-raped at a University of Virginia fraternity, telling readers the mistakes were the magazine's fault, not the alleged victim's.

That's a shift from the original note to readers, issued Friday, when it said of Jackie, the woman who claimed to have been gang-raped at a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, "Our trust in her was misplaced." The updated note removes that line, which struck some critics as blaming the victim.

The magazine said that it shouldn't have agreed to Jackie's request not to contact the alleged assailants to get their side of the story, out of sensitivity to her. "These mistakes are on Rolling Stone, not on Jackie," wrote the magazine's managing editor, Will Dana. "We apologize to anyone who was affected by the story and we will continue to investigate the events of that evening." The decision not to contact the alleged rapists prompted criticism from other news organizations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Most times when a corporate media outlet makes a goof, they publish a retraction, and other media outlets ignore it our pr professional courtesy. This "piling on" to Rolling Stone seems excessive, even given the nature of the serious mistake in journalism they made, and I have to wonder if the corporate media is seeing an opportunity to wreck Rolling Stone, not for this story., but for others, such as those by Matt Taibbi, who has taken it upon himself to apologize the the magazine's behavior.

John Bolton: As ignorant as he is dangerous

Incredibly, Bolton then said:

“We don’t have an effective propaganda capacity in the United States, we don’t try to sell our own story…”.

Did Bolton just say that? Yes, he did. That’s probably one of the most delusional statements ever made. Of course, Bolton probably feels he doesn’t need to keep pace with the news, because if he did, he’d have noticed that his own government has recently made it ‘legal’ to aim its official version of reality at US citizens, thanks to the repeal of the Smith-Munt Act “anti-propaganda” law.

Russian lawmaker criticises Kiev’s plans begin propagandistic broadcast in Crimea, Donbass

Head of the State Duma’s committee for international affairs, Alexei Pushkov, criticised plans of Ukraine’s new ministry of information policies to begin propagandistic broadcast in Crimea and Donbass.

“Kiev wants to share with us “the truth about Ukraine” via satellite television. What do they want to share? The experience of the Odessa massacre [in May]? Or of building the Wall [at the border with Russia]?” the senior lawmaker wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

Epic Fail: Jon Stewart Lies in Ferguson Skit, Gets Slammed by CA District Attorney

Comedian Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show, has made a living obsessing about why everyone else in media isn’t reporting “the truth”.

It turns out that Stewart has a lot to learn about reporting the truth.

In their bid to come up with new material each day, Stewart writers and producers will, more often than not, gravitate towards what they believe are the easiest targets to poke fun at, and will always take extra care to test the wind and make sure they are within the majority public opinion within their audience demographic on each single issue they turn into a skit. So it’s no surprise they would run with mainstream mythology regarding Ferguson and NYC – namely, that both incidents were racially motivated and then proceeded to flash up on screen the faces and names of ‘noteworthy’ black victims of police shootings in America.

Wall Street Moves to Put Taxpayers on the Hook for Derivatives Trades

Wall Street lobbyists are trying to secure taxpayer backing for many derivatives trades as part of budget talks to avert a government shutdown.

According to multiple Democratic sources, banks are pushing hard to include the controversial provision in funding legislation that would keep the government operating after Dec. 11. Top negotiators in the House are taking the derivatives provision seriously, and may include it in the final bill, the sources said.

The bank perks are not a traditional budget item. They would allow financial institutions to trade certain financial derivatives from subsidiaries that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. — potentially putting taxpayers on the hook for losses caused by the risky contracts. Big Wall Street banks had typically traded derivatives from these FDIC-backed units, but the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law required them to move many of the transactions to other subsidiaries that are not insured by taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there was ever a time to call Rivero's Rangers to keyboards, it is now.

Write/email/fax/phone your Congressional Representative and let them know that IF this bill is passed in this form, that you would rather have a goat, or a dog represent you, than this current cache of purchased weasels who allegedly represent you now.

And please remember: Congress no longer represents We the People; they represent Those, the Corporations. We the People have become irrelevant and expendable. That is why these idiots in Congress believe that they can get away with this crud.

Then, be pro-active. Do not have any more money in your bank than you need for paying bills. In fact, and even though it is more expensive, pay your bills with money orders if possible. There are many businesses which will still take cash, and it has not yet been made illegal to do so.

Make sure you have small amounts of gold and silver for barter. Because if Congress is about to pass legislation like this, the excrement is very near to hitting the ventilation shaft, and I mean really, really soon.
