Hillary spokesman: We roped off the media like animals to keep her parade appearance from becoming “chaotic”

It was a truly embarrassing spectacle, but not for Hillary Clinton. It was embarrassing for the press, because they willingly allow this nonsense to keep happening. It almost appears as though America’s political media are suffering from something approaching Battered Reporter Syndrome: yeah, she tied us up, but only once; she still respects us.

Hillary’s strategy in the face of an all-too-compliant media makes perfect sense. Why wouldn’t she abuse and disrespect them if they’re just going to stand there and take it? She has every reason in the world to keep doing this to them. Thus far, the Clinton campaign’s strategy of either ignoring reporters entirely or using them to broadcast blatantly manipulated nonsense is working pretty well. If campaign reporters are going to allow themselves to be led around like leashed preschoolers on a field trip to the museum, Hillary would be crazy to not treat them like leashed preschoolers on a field trip to the museum.

How the Media Discredit Greek Democracy

The language the Guardian and all other corporate media have been using about Syriza’s victory at the weekend against draconian EU-imposed austerity is revealing. Here are some examples of the subtle but effective framing from the paper’s front page today:

Greece: People Repudiate the 1%-ers

The people of Greece have rejected austerity with an emphatic “No” in a referendum. The corporate media reacted predictably. Reuters depicted Greeks as defying Europe.

The language in the Reuters piece was palpably biased. It portrayed Greeks as having “overwhelmingly rejected conditions of a rescue package” [italics added] put together by “creditors” and “lenders.”

How to counter Israel's hasbara campaign

Many commentators are not traceable to any real individual because they use pseudonyms. On Twitter, where there is much debate surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some anti-Palestine comments or reactions come from pages with 25 followers and little activity; one begins to doubt whether these are genuine Twitter users.
Indeed, these commentators are paid individuals, often university students, who are hired by the office of the prime minister of Israel to respond quickly and fiercely to anyone daring to criticise the state of Israel and its actions.

Zero for 40 at Predicting Attacks: Why Do Media Still Take FBI Terror Warnings Seriously?

On Monday, several mainstream media outlets repeated the latest press release by the FBI that country was under a new “heightened terror alert” from “ISIL-inspired attacks” “leading up to the July 4th weekend.” One of the more sensational outlets, CNN, led with the breathless warning on several of its cable programs, complete with a special report by The Lead’s Jim Sciutto in primetime.

Nearly three quarters of Americans believe the news media reports with an intentional bias, according to a new survey.

The 2015 State of the First Amendment Survey, conducted by the First Amendment Center and USA Today, was released Friday. It shows that only 24 percent of American adults agree with the statement that "overall, the news media tries to report the news without bias," while 70 percent disagree.

Jade Helm – a Slippery Slope

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Guest author Kenneth Anton: author of Popsicle Man and Cancer Vortex

It is stated by the government that “Jade Helm” is just a ‘Military Training Exercise’ taking place in 7 southwest states (possibly more) for just 2 months from 7/15/15 to 9/15/15.

But many skeptics, including myself, see this incursion by the military into domestic affairs as a prelude to martial law across the whole United States.

Why should we listen to the skeptics? Based on recent past experience the Ruling Elite have committed major false flag operations while training exercises were conducted at the same time as cover. So be forewarned that another ‘Military Training Exercise’ could precede a major false flag or terrorist event.

Examples of such training exercises:

Namely, that British TV companies now spend less creating original material; scrapping regulations means you get low quality programming; and people are losing the habit of watching live TV.

Just Before Round of Negotiations on the Proposed 'Trade in Services Agreement' (TISA), Wikileaks Releases Updated Secret Documents

Today, Wikileaks released a second batch of the most updated draft texts on the proposed TISA, along with substantive analysis, on each of four massive services sectors: Financial Services, Telecommunications Services, Electronic Commerce, and Maritime Transport. This follows on their release yesterday of cross-cutting annexes on Domestic Regulation, the "Movement of Natural Persons," Transparency, and Government Procurement, and the Agenda for next week's negotiations, along with what Wikileaks called the journalistic holy grail: the Core Text of the proposed agreement. The negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after the deal is finalized or abandoned.

Truth is a Crime Against The State — Paul Craig Roberts

The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies.

This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed.

Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one.

Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent media.

Washington and its vassals have redefined propaganda. Truth is propaganda if it is told by countries, such as Russia and China, that have independent foreign policies.

Propaganda is truth if told by Washington and its puppets, such as the EU Observer.

Well-known BBC presenter hints Israel may be underdog

So, in the 21st century — these supposedly modern, anti-racist times — how does Israel get away with the chauvinistic behavior of 19th century European settler states without arousing the fury of the masses?

The answer lies in the fact that the masses — accessing their news from the mainstream media — simply don’t know what’s going on.

Mainstream news sources shield Israel from the wrath of millions who, if they were aware of the facts, might be lobbying for change.

The variety of ways in which this cover-up takes place was starkly illustrated in recent weeks by the BBC’s Newsnight program, broadcast every weekday evening and billing itself as providing “analysis and observation of the news agenda.”

CNN Rattles Sabers as Iran Talks Move Into Key Stage

With a 7-day extension hinting at the possibility of a major breakthrough in nuclear negotiations with Iran, CNN turned the tables and instead released a story talking about US bunker-busting bombs being put on standby.

The focus on a “military option” against Iran, the idea that in the middle of key talks the US could just up and attack Iran out of the blue, wasn’t actually based on new anything US officials said. Indeed, the CNN piece relied solely on a single quote from Defense Secretary Ash Carter in an interview from way back in April.

US officials do occasionally make puzzling decisions to threaten to attack Iran, but this was not one of those times, and rather CNN invented this story as a whole cloth exercise in 19th century-style yellow journalism.

As Iran nuclear deadline passes, narrative battle heats up

The real issue holding things up is whether the Americans have the "political will" to make that leap, to agree in writing to its obligations (without 100 caveats) and the courage to face their sprawling bureaucracy whose bread-and-butter is the 'sanctions industry' and the 'Iranian enemy.' says Sharmine Narwani

It’s D-Day in Vienna, and the parties sitting across the negotiating table still haven’t ironed out terms to settle a 12-year standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. Expect this deadline to be missed. And prepare for a lot of hot air to fill its space.

The “hot air” is calculated narrative-spin from a range of players that seek to 1) scuttle a deal, 2) increase pressure/create leverage at the negotiating table, or 3) frame an upcoming agreement in language favorable to one side.

10 things they’re not telling you about the Greek crisis

The Greeks are in a crisis because they’re a bunch of lazy deadbeats, right?

After all, they work only 10 months of the year — and get paid for 14. They retire at 25 and lounge around in cafes drinking ouzo. They live on handouts from Germany and cheat on their taxes. The troika of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund have tried and tried and tried to help them, but they just won’t listen. And now they’ve gone full moonbat and are refusing to pay back even a scrap of the money they’ve borrowed.



Almost everything you’re being told about the Greek crisis is a load of complete nonsense.

Greece – A Moving Target

Mr. Tsipras lets it be known that if the Greek vote ‘yes’ – for the austerity program, he may resign – that might bring the hegemon’s desired ‘regime change’.

Greece is a moving target. A new bail-out package in the wings? Being negotiated as these lines are going to print? An act of desperation? – Confusing for sure – for the electorate, for observers – but especially for the suffering every-day Greek. Almost hour by hour things are changing.

A last-minute, last ditch negotiation with Brussels for a new bail-out program has apparently been initiated by Athens for two years. No amount has been mentioned – let alone the austerities that Greece would have to accept – or the troika.

Western Presstitutes Dumbfounded by Vladimir Putin’s 89% Approval Rating

Not according to President Vladimir Putin’s approval ratings, which hit all-time highs of 89 percent Wednesday (…) Putin’s ratings jumped from 65 percent in January 2014 to 80 percent two months later, and they’ve stayed in the 80s ever since, according to measurements from the Moscow-based Levada Center, the only independent polling organization in Russia.

All sort of things in these negotiations are going on behind the scenes, not only between the P5+1 and Iran but between the Western allies as well.

KKK Leaflets Show up on LA Lawns; Another Part of the Race War Psyop?

Apparently the distribution of white supremacist propaganda also occurred in Orange County last week as well, so they’re really hitting this one up hard post-Charleston. A similar incident also took place earlier this year in Santa Ana on, of all days, Martin Luther King Jr. day.

Again, this sounds like something straight out of a COINTELPRO course on provocateuring, especially in the fact that it was splashed all over the news to add a little something to the race baiting in a post-Ferguson, post-Baltimore, post-Charleston America.

Speaking of COINTELPRO, considering there have been recent claims the FBI covered up their KKK informant’s role in Martin Luther King’s assassination, and that the agency destroyed crucial documents on purpose to stop the exposure of a high-ranking Klansman who also happened to be a Fed agent, the government might know a little thing or two about the KKK…

Hillary Lucks Out; News on Emails She Failed to Turn over Got ‘Lost’ on Biggest News Day of the Year

Yes, Hillary sure did luck out didn’t she?

News hit that, despite her promises that she turned over each and every email during her tenure as Secretary of State, the State Department found at least 15 emails Hillary Clinton did not turn over (via The New York Times):

The State Department said on Thursday that 15 emails sent or received by Hillary Rodham Clinton were missing from records that she has turned over, raising new questions about whether she deleted work-related emails from the private account she used exclusively while in office.

But, considering the news didn’t fully break until the same day that the Supreme Court upheld gay marriage and that’s all anyone was talking about that day in the mainstream press, no one likely even saw buried headlines about Hillary’s “lost” emails.

Oh, and the emails just so happened to be about Libya, too.

Sidney Blumenthal Played Under-The-Radar Role At Young Daily Beast

Hillary Clinton’s confidant Sidney Blumenthal played a quiet role in shaping, and sometimes steering political coverage, in the early days of The Daily Beast.

Blumenthal’s role, early employees said, was touched with a bit of the conspiratorial haze that has emerged as a point of controversy in Clinton’s campaign. He wasn’t listed on the site’s masthead, and the site’s founder, Tina Brown, said she had “no idea” whether or not he was on Clinton’s payroll while helping to shape the site’s political coverage. In one case, he commissioned a hit piece on a potential Clinton rival, Caroline Kennedy, though his name appeared nowhere on the story.

Truth is a Crime Against The State

The Western presstitutes have succeeded in creating a false reality for insouciant Americans and also for much of the European Union population.

A sizable percentage of these insouciant peoples believe that Russia invaded Ukraine and that Russia is threatening to invade the Baltic States and Poland. This belief exists despite all intelligence of all Western governments reporting that there is no sign of any Russian forces that would be required for invasion.

The “Russian invasion,” like “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections,” like “Assad of Syria’s use of chemical weapons against his own people,” like “Iranian nukes,” never existed but nevertheless became the reality in the Western media. The insouciant Western peoples believe in non-existent occurrences.

In other words, just to state the obvious noncontroversial fact, the Western “news” media is a propaganda ministry from which no truth emerges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Whoreporate news networks", in print, or electronically, only give you the narrative the US government wants you to hear or see, which is why you are many times shielded so carefully from the stark realities creating public policy about which you need to know, and understand.

Unfortunately, at this point in my life, the country of which I am most deeply frightened, in terms of making some sort of ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong policies which will impact Americans badly (either by declaring a new war, against a truly non-belligerent country which is no threat to us), or embracing fiscal policies which will lead to a smash and burn of the US economy's small businesses, is my own government.

‘Hi, I’m Uncle Sam and I’m a War-oholic’

War on drugs. War on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you. It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.

When you define something as war, it dictates the use of the military (or militarized police forces, prisons, and other forms of coercion) as the primary instruments of policy. Violence becomes the means of decision, total victory the goal. Anyone who suggests otherwise is labeled a dreamer, an appeaser, or even a traitor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever noticed that when the US declares war on ANYTHING (poverty, drugs, terror, etc.), the problem gets worse rather than better?!?

And the government of the US has a severe problem on its hands; after the lies about Saddam's Weapons, the lies used to trick us into invading and occupying Afghanistan, and the general state of lying about the economy, the American government has zero credibility with the American people.

We can no longer believe anything this government says, and have become (peacefully and logically) vocal about that.

About the only thing the US government has now is to engineer a massive false flag attack, and use it as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and declare martial law.

White supremacists sign up for military to train for race war — with little pushback from Pentagon

After the horrific massacre at Charleston’s historic black church, Americans are slowly realizing the threat posed by white supremacist and neo-Nazi movements. But few know that their presence has grown within one of the most powerful institutions in America: the US military.

According to the FBI, there are hundreds of white supremacists in the US army or in the veteran community. Some analysts even estimate the number is in the thousands. In America, 203 white supremacist “extremist cases” investigated by the Bureau from 2001 to 2008 involved veterans. The problem hasn’t gone away. Neo-Nazi veteran Wade Michael Page attacked six worshippers at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, in 2012.

I spent a number of years investigating how neo-Nazis and white supremacists had infiltrated the US military, with very little push back from the Pentagon, which was desperate to keep the supply of troops flowing for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pure codswallop to make Americans feel very afraid...very afraid indeed; to the point of doing everything their government tells them to, unthinkingly and unquestioningly.

If, in fact, this person actually did any research whatsoever, where are the numbers, please?!?

Notice that there is no hard evidence to back up anything this person alleges in this article.

IF this is not "research", then it is pure, grade-A bovine excrement propaganda, engineered to scare Americans.

And please remember; just as is the case with so many other mass casualty shooters in the US, Dylann Roof, the accused here, was on heavy psychiatric medications, which have a known history of causing homicidal or suicidal thoughts.

Please see the article here:

Of course, demanding that pharmaceutical companies remove these dangerous substances from their product list would just cut into their bottom line too greatly, so that never happens. And in MY world, any drug company executive who allows such a drug to be sold, knowing its high risk, should be tried, convicted and jailed for a very long, and not in a Club Fed. But: I digress.

It has appeared to both Mike and me that someone in this country wants to see race hatred leading to some kind of a race war, and I have to pull back a bit, and ask "cui bono"?!? Who benefits?!?

Well, you have an Administration on the ropes in Washington, with its star player for the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, tanking on potential charges of corruption, gross mismanagement of the State Department, and outright lying to Congress on Benghazi, you start to feel cornered. And cornered politicians are both desperate and dangerous.

Except for the money junkies, the economy is in a mess; just ask anyone whose job was recently offshored/outsourced.

The benefit for such an administration from a national series of race riots would be to give Obama the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and invoke martial law, and perhaps postpone the next election...indefinitely.

Nothing could be said about the US business-shredding Atlantic or Pacific trade deals, without imprisonment, fines, or both.

Nothing could be said about upcoming potential wars with Iran, China, and Russia.

And nothing could be said about Charlie Rangel's legislation, still sitting in the Armed Services Committee, to reinstate the draft, and draft our young women, as well as our young men.

I am noticing that on the feed from Faux News, we are being "prepped" for some kind of horrific terror incident to happen over this weekend, either domestically, or against American interests.

This could well be another "justification" for President Obama's gleeful suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

CNN Mistakenly Spots ISIS Flag At London Pride, Doesn't Notice Banner Is Made Up Of Dildos And Butt Plugs

When did CNN stop being a news channel? On April 15th, 2014, when the network held a panel discussion on whether Malaysian Airlines flight 370 fell into a black hole.

Yet on Saturday the broadcaster surpassed that nadir, running an "exclusive" segment on the “unnerving sight” of the Islamic State flag at a Pride event in London.

The “ISIS flag amongst a sea of rainbow colours was spotted by a CNN international assignment editor,” said the anchor, gravely.

The Delphi Declaration – Paul Craig Roberts

The Delphi Declaration asks the European peoples, especially the Germans, to do the right thing and object to the plunder of Greece by the One Percent.

This appeal to goodwill is likely to fall on deaf ears even though the pillage of Greece will create a precedent that can then be applied to Italy, Spain, France, and even Germany.

European governments, European institutions and the IMF, acting in close alliance, if not under direct control of big international banks and other financial institutions, are now exercising a maximum of pressure, including open threats, blackmailing and a slander and terror communication campaign against the recently elected Greek government and against the Greek people.

Lower US Flag on 4th of July

We need to do a lot more searching, a lot deeper digging, if we're going to root out and destroy the virus that has been killing us for centuries!

For over half a century, I’ve written articles against racism and war. I was shocked and I grieved to see what happened at the Charleston Emanuel Church. Quickly, the call went out: We need to have a “conversation” about race in America! And, almost as quickly: Take down the Confederate flag! But, let’s be very clear: the Confederate flag is NOT a central issue here.

On the 4th of July, when Americans raise their flags as a proud symbol of their “freedom,” will anyone dare to lower their flags to half-mast to commemorate the 60,000 Americans who died in a now-acknowledged “unnecessary” war in Vietnam– let alone the millions of Asians?

Would it be disrespectful even to suggest such a gesture?

‘Address Your Remarks To Downing Street’ –The Sunday Times Editor Deepens His Snowden Debacle

George Orwell once wrote:

'I really don't know which is more stinking, the Sunday Times or The Observer. I go from one to the other like an invalid turning from side to side in bed and getting no comfort which ever way he turns.' (George Orwell, quoted, Bernard Crick, George Orwell: A Life, p. 233, Penguin Books, 1992)

The competition remains fierce, but the Sunday Times edged marginally ahead with a recent front-page exclusive that stank to truly celestial heights. As we noted in our previous alert, the Sunday Times dramatically claimed that Russia and China had 'cracked the top-secret cache of files stolen by the fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden'. The 'exclusive story' contained precisely no evidence for its anonymous claims, no challenges to the assertions made and no journalistic balance. In a CNN interview the same day, lead reporter Tom Harper trashed his own credibility, and that of his paper, when he blurted:

‘Your worst nightmare': Bill Maher blames Tea Party for creating Trump’s ‘Frankenstein’ campaign

Real Time host Bill Maher said on Friday that is not willing to dismiss reality TV star Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, even if it’s unpalatable to him.

“He makes everybody else look like a midget — not in a good way,” Maher told his panelists. “Here’s the thing about Donald Trump: he never apologizes, he’s never wrong, no matter what crazy thing he says. He’s the white Kanye. For a party whose base adores belligerence, the guy.”

While guests Mary Katherine Ham and Kristen Soltis Anderson argued that Trump’s run for the GOP presidential nomination will falter, Maher pushed back.

“It’s not going away,” he insisted. “This is the Frankenstein monster that was created with the Tea Party. This is your worst nightmare. Because he catapulted to second in the polls — and by the way, he’s p*ssed about that.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have what I would characterize as a "hug and a (gentle) punch" with Maher's work; sometimes, he makes me laugh, because he is brilliantly insightful; other times, he makes me furious, because he can never seem to see the flaws, foul-ups and blunders in the party which he has embraced with almost religious fervor.

But in one way, Maher is correct in his assessment; there are enough wounded Republicans (particularly males) who see Trump as their "rockstar/saviour", because he panders to their worst fears, and wants to re-imagine the country as it was at least half a decade ago.

But the issue of illegal immigration is a complex problem, in which both parties are complicit, because children of illegal immigrants who are born here are automatically citizens; that's the way the law works in this country, until it is revised to state that children born of illegal aliens are considered citizens of their parent's country of origin.

The Democratic party has cynically calculated that nationalizing illegals will overwhelm the Republican party, and give them a majority in government forever, but they are forgetting one thing; may immigrants from Central and South America have very conservative, family and religiously oriented values, which may swing their voting away from the Democrats.

Also, the corporations supporting our alleged Congressional representatives on BOTH sides of the aisle love illegal labor because it cuts down the cost of doing business, and puts American citizens out of their jobs, if they will not accept the serf-level wages they are offering.

And many of the governments from which these people are desperately running away are US-sponsored dictatorships.

And hell, Trump is rich enough to BUY this election, if he so desires, and since money equates to "free speech" after the Citizens United decision, he may well do it.

And my problem with the 2016 election is that there is not one candidate running for whom I could vote with a clear conscience right now.

MSM: Joking about dead terrorists is 'insensitive,' but making fun of vaccine-damaged children is hilarious!

Whether or not Americans have a right to free speech increasingly depends on what the purveyors of political correctness on the Left sanction as "proper" or "improper," no matter how hypocritical, insane or outrageously insensitive.

Greece – the Way Out

The Greek people are being penalized for having had the audacity to elect a socialist government – How dare they! – That’s the verdict.

What the troika is doing to Greece these days is the pinnacle of financial terrorism.It is economic waterboarding. It is blackmailing of the first degree. These people are neoliberal fascists, putting the Greek government before a dilemma – ‘either you present us with an acceptable list of austerities, or we will prepare one for you’ – literally. An austerity plan you better accept, lest you may default and being expulsed from the European monetary union and maybe even the EU. That is their threat. That is what Brussels does to a brother; to one of theirs. There is not a shred of solidarity left in this miss-called ‘Union’. This ‘Union’ doesn’t deserve existing.

FLASHBACK - Why Israel Lies

All governments lie, as I.F. Stone pointed out, including Israel and Hamas. But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality. And all of us reporters who have covered the occupied territories have run into Israel’s Alice-in-Wonderland narratives, which we dutifully insert into our stories—required under the rules of American journalism—although we know they are untrue.

That Most Terrorists Aren’t Muslim May ‘Come as a Surprise’–if You Get Your News From Corporate Media

Since the Al Qaeda attacks on September 11, 2001, the New York Times (6/23/15) reports:

extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States…. But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise.

The “surprise” is that more people are killed by “white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims”: 48 vs. 26 since 9/11, according to a study by the New America Foundation. (More comprehensive studies cited in a recent New York Times op-ed–6/16/15–show an even greater gap, with 254 killed in far-right violence since 9/11, according to West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center, compared to 50 killed in jihadist-related terrorism.)

After Ben Affleck Scandal, PBS Postpones 'Finding Your Roots'

PBS has released details about an internal investigation which found that actor Ben Affleck exerted improper influence by requesting the show Finding Your Roots hide details of a slave-owning ancestor in his family tree. As a result, PBS has postponed the third season of the show and deferred a fourth season until the network is "satisfied that the editorial standards of the series have been successfully raised to a level in which we can have confidence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is turning into a feeding frenzy! Ben bears no responsibility for his ancestors!

The Let’s Hate Russia Propaganda Campaign

This ‘propaganda campaign’ is spinning completely out of control.

In this episode of Trends In The News, trends-forecaster Gerald Celente exposes the extreme nature of what he dubs ‘the let’s hate Russia propaganda campaign’.

According to nearly all major US media outlets, The Russians are being blamed for quite literally all of our problems and being portrayed as a threat to international security when nothing could be further from the truth.

While Russia has been busy developing the BRICS bank with other rising powers – a serious financial challenger to IMF and World Bank hegemony – the West has been busy fomenting chaos in both Syria and Ukraine.

Will the media push us into World War Three? Let’s hope not…

NBC: "White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S."

NBC News is reporting that white people are the "biggest terror threat in the U.S." citing a study. Oddly, despite the headline, "White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S.: Study," in the text of their quick article, NBC, does not actually say that white people are the biggest terror threat.

Instead, NBC's article reads, "The New America Foundation found that twice as many people have died in attacks by right-wing groups in America than by Muslim extremists since 9/11."

According to the study, 26 people have died from "Deadly Jihadist Attacks" in the United States since September 11, while 48 have died from "Deadly Right Wing Attacks."

Besides the obvious problems with NBC's clickbait headline, there other tremendous problems with the "study." First, it specifically excludes September 11, 2001. If it was included, it would show that Islamic extremists have killed 62 times as many people as "right-winged groups."

Homegrown Radicals More Deadly Than Jihadis in U.S.

In the 14 years since Al Qaeda carried out attacks on New York and the Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States, explaining their motives in online manifestoes or social media rants.

But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise. Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.

Corporate Media Claim of ''Alawite Regime'' In Syria Debunked

By Brandon Turbeville

The Western mainstream press has long attempted to brand Syria as just one more Middle Eastern country caught in the centuries-old battle between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, a narrative that has been successfully peddled to the American public. In fact, that narrative has been so successful in American public discourse that one of the most common responses coming from even anti-war proponents is “those people have people have been fighting over there for thousands of years.”...

Facebook becomes Godzilla news outlet for disinformation

"Bottom line, every large mainstream news source is in the business of disinformation. That's the heavy freight they transport, every day. Stories with no context. Outright lies. Omission of vital data. Claims of 'overwhelming consensus' on issues where no such consensus exists. Internal censorship of their own budding investigations into high-level crimes. Disguised partisan opinions. Utter reliance on 'experts' as sources, who deliver official propaganda as if it were fact. They manufacture reality for governments, corporations, and other controllers of society. And yet... many of these outlets are drowning in red ink. They're going broke. The 'greatest news outlet in the world', the New York Times, keeps refinancing its debt to stay afloat. The powers-that-be must rescue mainstream media, in order to keep broadcasting their false pictures of reality. Who will step up to the plate? Perhaps some social-media Godzilla with CIA connections..."

Fox News co-host misses target in ax throw, hits drummer — VIDEO

A video has never before been so cringeworthy, and we all have Fox News co-host Pete Hegseth to thank for this nerve-wracking clip.

According to the Huffington Post, the video comes from a June 14 broadcast of “Fox & Friends” in an apparent “lumberjack contest.”

Here we see Hegseth attempting to throw an ax at a target. He brings the ax behind his back, swings it over his head, launches it and it clears the top of the target. Not even close.

Unfortunately, the failed throw doesn’t just end there.

The clip then cuts to a drumline playing behind the target area and we see the ax hit one of the U.S Army drummers.

The 6 Stupidest Acts Of Journalistic Fraud Ever Attempted

Calling for the death of a random civil servant is bad enough, but this particular protest followed the murder of two police officers in New York City. Clearly, the race war that Fox has spent the past several years warning everyone about was ready to explode:

Except, of course, for the part where that's not at all what happened. As it turned out, the protesters were actually chanting, "We won't stop, we can't stop, 'til killer cops, are in cell blocks." The news report left out those crucial last four syllables.

This was not an accident. The audio of the video, which was being presented by reporter Melinda Roeder and cameraman Greg McNair, was deliberately altered by looping of the phrase "killer cop" to make the protesters sound like a pack of bloodthirsty psychopaths.

NYT’s Orwellian View of Ukraine

In the up-is-down Orwellian world that is now The New York Times’ editorial page, there was no coup in Ukraine in 2014, no U.S.-driven “regime change,” no provocation on Russia’s border, just Moscow’s aggression — a sign of how propaganda has taken over mainstream U.S. media.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the leaders of Oceania presented “Two Minutes Hate” in which the image of an enemy was put on display and loyal Oceanianians expressed their rage, all the better to prepare them for the country’s endless wars and their own surrender of freedom. And, now, in America, you have The New York Times.

“Psychopaths are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain people’s trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people... When committing crimes, psychopaths carefully plan out every detail in advance and often have contingency plans in place. Unlike their sociopathic counterparts, psychopathic criminals are cool, calm, and meticulous.” - Psychology Today

Trigger Warning: AP Photo Shows Gun Pointed at Ted Cruz’s Head

A series of Associated Press photos from a 2nd Amendment event in Iowa on Saturday appear to show Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with a gun pointed at his head. Cruz, who was speaking at a “Celebrate the 2nd Amendment Event” in Iowa, was photographed next to a poster of a gun, which looked like it was pointed right between the Texas senator’s eyes.

Humanity is Developing Survival Resistance to Government Lies

Bernie Suarez, Guest
Waking Times

Throughout nature it is well known that species will experience changes in its DNA and adaptations in its physical expression and behavior solely for the purposes of surviving in its environment. There are numerous examples in nature of species genetically and physically adapting to its environment for survival reasons. So it’s not a far-fetched suggestion that humanity itself may now be experiencing a physiological mental and cerebral transformation which is changing its behavioral pattern and environmental response to the phenomenon of government.

Trapping Russia to Prove a Negative

The prove-a-negative trap is the Big Lie technique of Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels: there is no substance to the allegations and there is no obligation to present evidence to verify, thanks to the dutiful and unquestioning nature of Western corporate “journalism”.

The United States and its Western allies are trying to ensnare Russia in an audacious disinformation trap over the Ukraine conflict. That trap involves imposing an insoluble conundrum on Vladimir Putin’s government, which we might call “prove a negative”. It is a familiar conceptual device that Washington has used elsewhere, against Iraq and Iran for example, in order to pursue what are otherwise illegitimate geopolitical aims.Russia is being held up as the guilty party that is undermining the shaky Minsk ceasefire; and Western economic sanctions are being extended “until Russia implements the ceasefire”.

The Myth of Global ‘Free’ Trade

The key to TTIP is the so-called Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanism that essentially gives corporations free reign to sue governments using a “failure to implement” provision, if state policies or legislation interfere with profits. But is this all about trade?

There was a direct, crucial “secret” agenda linking the G7 meeting in Germany and the Bilderberg meeting in Austria last week; the advancement of the virtually secret negotiations towards the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the massive free trade agreement between the US and the EU.

Even though the corporate powers behind TTIP are itching for a deal to be reached before the end of 2015, serious (negotiation) trouble remains.

Trump for President? — Paul Craig Roberts

This is not my endorsement of Trump for President. It is merely my speculations on how we might think of how large egos might be brought into our service.

Celente put it well. If you look at the sorry collection that aspires to be the CEO of what continues to be described as the “exceptional, indispensable, most important country with the largest economy and military, the world’s only Superpower, the Uni-power,” you see a collection of nobodies. America is like the last days of Rome when contenting factions fought to put their puppet on the throne.

In actual fact, Trump might be our best candidate to date. By all accounts, he is very rich. Thus, he doesn’t need the office in order to become rich by selling out America to interest groups.

The Washington Post is promoting the Israeli propaganda version of "protection" by obfuscating and lying about the events in the area. Here is the relevant headline on the Washington Post home page. "Israel's Druze minority" is threatened? Hmm ... that indeed would be news.

The section page then has a bit more correct headline talking about "Druze in the Golan". But it still does not inform who of the Druze, those on the Israeli side or those on the Syrian side of the demarcation line, are really threatened. Only the sub-headline informs that the threat is to Druze in Syria, not - as the homepage claims - to Druze in Israel.

Despite the well-known Jewish influence, the MSM in the US will often (surprisingly) take a pro-Palestinian tack regarding perhaps the most well-known of the perennial problems in the Mideast. Some of the media feel the need to present different viewpoints (if only to go through the motions?), employ left-wing journalists who are consistently pro-Israel, find fault with J Street but not demonize it, report on the involvement of (outlying) Jews in the BDS movement sympathetically, let the world know about the thoughts of a left-leaning Jew such as Max Blumenthal, and generally note divisions among the Jews.

Charleston, cognitive psychology, and media influence - Dr. Kevin McDonald

It’s worth thinking about some basic psychology in relation to the Charleston events. Cognitive psychologists study heuristics that people use to make judgments about the likelihood of events that are complexly determined — things like airplane crashes or shark attacks. A heuristic relevant to Charleston is the availability heuristic, where people make judgments and form attitudes based on their memories of past events. Such memories are greatly influenced by media coverage.

In the USA – “I Cannot Write!”

The West is finished, its culture dead. What is left is unattractive, even horrifying. There is no heart, no compassion, and no creativity.

It was the first time in many years that I had missed my column, my essays, for several weeks.

I was shocked by the state in which I found the United States.

I couldn’t breath. I lost the ability to write. I felt anger building inside me. The anger was suffocating, strangling me. It was unhealthy anger, mixed with frustration! It was not that sacred anger one feels when going to a battle against great evil. It was also somehow petty, indescribable, and pathetic. It was breaking me, humiliating me.

I hated the fights I had to fight here.

I tried to see the reality that was surrounding me with different eyes but wherever I looked I saw only a dysfunctional, sad, collapsing country and culture.

This visit broke me. It exhausted me. It thoroughly depressed me.
