Israel’s rebranding strategy focuses on delegitimizing critics and opponents

Neve Gordon argues that personal smears and character assassinations of critics of Israeli policy are a central plank in Israel’s rebranding strategy, which also targets local and international NGOs and their donors, particularly the European Union, the Ford Foundation and the New Israel Fund.

PHILIP GIRALDI : Shaping the Story on Iran

There have been recent reports that Iran has enabled the travel of al-Qaeda leaders to Afghanistan and Pakistan where they will be able to confront and kill American soldiers. If you think you have heard the story before, you have, in another context. In the earlier rendition it was Saddam Hussein who was hand-in-glove with al-Qaeda, helping the group in its nefarious planning to attack the United States and kill Americans. Saddam, who was in reality only a threat to his own people, was on the receiving end of a barrage of fabricated information claiming that he was secretly developing weapons of mass destruction and clandestinely dealing with the terrorists who were responsible for 9/11. Or so the story goes.

Ray McGovern : US, Israel Challenged on Iran

The times may be a-changin’ — at least a bit — with the United States and Israel no longer able to dictate to the rest of the world how crises in the Middle East must be handled, though the new reality has been slow to dawn on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her neocon friends in Congress and the U.S. media.

They may think they are still in control, still the smart ones looking down at upstarts like the leaders of Turkey and Brazil who had the audacity to ignore U.S. warnings and press ahead with diplomacy to head off a possible new war, this one over Iran.

If the governments will not stop the siege, it is up to the citizens of the world to break it—and that is what we will do!”.

Wolf and his network, CNN, conveniently overlook white, "Christian" terrorism

Wolf Blitzer
CNN

Dear Mr. Blitzer,

Yesterday, you and CNN were all over the story about the conviction of Khalid Ouazzani, an American citizen who donated money to Al Qaeda. While watching, it occurred to me that you do an excellent job of defining what is terrorism and what isn't. Here was a brown guy, a Muslim, who donated $23,000 to Al Qaeda for use overseas. Obviously, he's a terrorist, and you took care to make that clear throughout your broadcast.

There was also a sentancing yesterday you didn't mention. The guilty man's name is Pastor Robert Joos. He's guilty, along with two others, of sending a mail bomb to The Scottsdale City Diversity Office. It was opened by the diversity officer, Don Logan, who sustained major injuries from the explosion. Additionally, one of Joos's congregants, Timothy Coombs, is wanted for the sniper slaying of the officer who arrested Joos--Coombs shot him, pro-life style, through the policeman's kitchen window while he was making a dish of ice cream.

BP and Coast Guard Blocking Media from Public Beaches

CBS has footage of their reporters being turned away from a public beach in Louisiana where they were filming oil washing up on shore.

"This is BP's rules, it's not ours," someone aboard the boat said. Coast Guard officials told CBS that they're looking into it.

According to Mother Nature Network's Karl Burkhart, his contacts in Louisiana have given him unconfirmed reports of equipment being turned away or confiscated.

Paul Jay of Real News Network blogs "On reality and bitter truths."

That's the problem with most news these days. Journalists know that people with power publicly say things that are in their interests, and often not what they really think or want. Journalists understand there is an economic and political elite and when they say "for the good of the nation", they mean themselves. That we live in a class society is a fact everyone knows but few journalists acknowledge in their work.

There are great economic and social pressures brought to bear on journalists to go along with the official narrative. We saw this in the extreme in American newsrooms after 9/11 and in coverage of the Iraq war. Dan Rather and Tom Fenton of CBS have both talked about the fear in US newsrooms of being called unpatriotic if they criticized the Bush administration.

How Bush's DOJ Killed a Criminal Probe Into BP That Threatened to Net Top Officials

West was the special agent-in-charge at the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Criminal Investigation Division who had been probing alleged crimes committed by BP and the company's senior officials in connection with a March 2006 pipeline rupture at the company's Prudhoe Bay operations in Alaska's North Slope that spilled 267,000 gallons of crude oil across two acres of frozen tundra - the second largest spill in Alaska's history - which went undetected for nearly a week.

West was confident that the thousands of hours he invested into the criminal investigation would result in felony charges against BP and the company's senior executives who received advanced warnings from dozens of employees who worked at its Prudhoe Bay facility that unless immediate steps were taken to repair the severely corroded pipeline, a disaster on par with that of the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill was only a matter of time.

Apparent Terrorist Attack Planned for 2010 World Cup

Once again the convenient case of terrorism jumps up but this time it is not the New York Mayor that wants to install London's semi police planet video surveillance system or London that wants to arrest and monitor all photographers even if they are tourists. This time it's right here in South Africa the home of the 2010 FIFA World Cup where the guys in hidden caves on the other side of the planet threatened to blow up the World Cup.

The "threat" comes from one guy called Ayman al-Zawahiri that was killed so many times already by the United States that the fact that he is still alive shows just what terrorism really is and what it has become.

Nowhere in the article does it mention that Goldman Sachs, the Blackstone Group and Apollo Management own Nalco, the producer of the 54 % effective, 100% toxic dispersant.

Christopher King examines the death of UK weapons inspector Dr David Kelly in 2003 and argues that, in the light of fresh analyses of the circumstances of his death, it is vital that the new British government make public Dr Kelly’s post mortem report and other documentation relating to his death.

”We need public access to Dr Kelly’s post mortem report and the documentation relating to his death. The Blair-Brown government’s delaying tactics will not do. Since we have a new government, a new attorney-general and a new home secretary, this is a test of the Cameron-Clegg government’s integrity.”

Zionism & the Millenium Myth

While I'm a firm believer in the teachings and earthly mission of Christ, I do not subscribe to the idea of the 1000 year, utopia Millennium. It's a deception that is being promoted by Zionists to suck in fundamentalist Christians to do their bidding and bring about their New World Order "utopia". The Zionists WANT to create a huge, world wide conflagration between Muslims and Christians and the big happy Christmas present at the end of this deadly destruction is the return of the "messiah" and a thousand years of bliss, happiness, and peace with Christ sitting on a throne in Jerusalem. The "rebuilding of the temple" is part of the Zionist script.

Only morons, cheats and liars still believe in Man-Made Global Warming

Well of course I would write a headline like that having just spent the last three days in Chicago at the Heartland Institute’s 4th International Conference on Climate Change. This is the event the cackling, cloak-wearing, befanged AGW-denying community attends every year to glorify in their own evil. And naturally, in the wake of Climategate, a mood of uproarious triumphalism has prevailed as distinguished skeptical scientists, economists, and policymakers from around the world – Pat Michaels, Richard Lindzen, Ian Plimer, Bob Carter, Fred Singer.. you name them, they’re here – have gathered to dance on the smouldering ashes of the mythical beast ManBearPig.

For all of you out there in America and across the globe who have fought so hard to tackle the hideous enemy of our planet,

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in the past week has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And, those hundreds of thousands of American jobs you helped move to Asia with expensive emissions demands on businesses... you know, the ones that are creating even more emissions than when they were creating American jobs, well that must seem really worthwhile now.

I'm so sorry. And I do wish that there was some kind of a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western U.S.A. will start in about two months and those fires will negate your efforts to reduce carbon emissions in our world for the next two years.

US Answer to Iran Nuclear Swap: Overnight Deal on Sanctions

Ahmet Davutoglu – Turkish Foreign Minister

“What they wanted us to do was give the confidence to Iran to do the swap. We have done our duty,” said Davutoglu, calling the deal an important step for regional and global peace. -Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu

In a swift answer to the Iran nuclear fuel deal secured Monday by Turkey and Brazil, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced today that world powers had finalized a package of “strong” new sanctions against Iran.

After months of diplomatic efforts, the US secured support overnight from Russia and China, removing the possibility that the move would be vetoed by the United Nations Security Council. The draft would be circulated later Tuesday to the full council, she said.

“One suggestion I’d make is we stop accepting the term ‘skeptic,’” Lindzen said. “As far as I can tell, skepticism involves doubts about a plausible proposition. I think current global warming alarm does not represent a plausible proposition.”

Part of that conditioning was confusing Americans to the point where we would blame each other, one imaginary enemy after another, all blamed for our failures, our poverty, our decline while, when we weren’t looking, our economy drained into the foreign bank accounts of the few and our jobs flushed into Mexico, then China.

“If we remember those times and places–and there are so many–where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.” Professor Howard Zinn (1922-2010)

But new benefits to Israel have recently been negotiated, which might be all it takes to make Joe Lieberman happy.

The Kerry-Lieberman Cap & Tax bill establishes a price collar for CO2 emissions with a floor of $12 per metric ton (increasing annually by 3% + inflation) and ceiling of $25 (increasing annually by 5% + inflation). According to the EPA, US emissions of CO2 in 2009 were 5787 million metric tons. Thus, if the legislation is applied to all US emissions, the cost would be $69 Billion (floor) to $145 Billion (ceiling) annually, increasing ~6 to 8+% each year forever.

I didn’t hear a single mention of the American Power Act on Fox News Sunday, ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet the Press, the McLaughlin Group, or the Chris Matthews Show.

What gives? The mainstream media LOVES global warming as an issue, because it’s divisive and it’s yellow. So why would they ignore it? The only explanation I can think of is that the media believes the bill is dead.

“There is no ground left for more sanctions or pressure on Iran”

If I were in Washington this morning, I would run down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House to Congress with a big Brazilian flag, as the young Brazilians run down the Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo during the the “football” match, shouting “Gollllllll!”

Because with the news this morning that Iran has agreed to ship most of its enriched uranium to Turkey, in a nuclear fuel swap deal reached in talks with Brazil and Turkey that could “deflate a U.S.-led push” for new sanctions against Iran, the President of Brazil has scored a goal against the neocons in the West who want to gin up confrontation with Iran towards a future military conflict.

Now independent thinkers are considered diseased by psychiatry

Climate Change Has No Scientific Consensus

Oreskes reviewed 928 abstracts from peer-reviewed research papers and determined that more than 75 per cent of scientists either explicitly or implicitly accept that Earth’s climate is being affected by human activities. Thus the ‘scientific consensus’ claim was born.

However, according to a peer-reviewed analysis of Oreskes by Dr. Benny Peiser, a world-renowned expert on ‘neo-catastrophism,’ it appears the claims by Oreskes are false. Dr. Peiser uncovered from the 928 abstracts that; “just over a dozen explicitly endorse the ‘consensus’ while the vast majority of abstracts do not mention anthropogenic global warming.” Moreover, the term ‘catastrophic warming’ appears nowhere in any of the papers.

He again reminded people that test flights by airlines, aircraft and engine manufacturers have shown no evidence that airlines could not continue to fly completely safely. The current "fluid" British flight ban will end on the eve of massive British Airways strikes that will combine with these so-called "5-day ash prediction charts" to ensure continued travel disruption into the summer months.

Poor Thai ‘red shirts’ victims of the New World Order

I love Thailand. I lived there 14 years, doing volunteer work. I know Thailand’s problems. I have seen it change from a simple gentle society to what it is today. But what is happening now is very tragic. Thai people were always one, no matter what, but now they are sadly divided! And why? Because of a big fat lie!

Special Nakba Day show! on Truth Jihad Radio

Editors Note: Those who might be turned off by the word “JIHAD” thanks to the Zionist propaganda war against the noble word “jihad” which is an extreme example of Islamophobic bigotry; if one considers how they have kidnapped perfectly rational English words like “holocaust” and anti-Semite” and what they have done with them, what chance do you think anyone would have with trying to untangle the distortion in which they have ensnared foreign words like “Jihad?”

Jihad, means struggle — the struggle to become a better person and to make the world a better place.

Franklin Lamb speaks about NAKBA to Kevin Barett on the

Knowledge, Truth and Human Action: America Hits the Wall

Public policy based on mere beliefs or opinions sooner or later crashes headlong into the wall of reality causing disastrous consequences, for in the end, the truth cannot be denied. "Trust, but verify," a phrase often used by Ronald Reagan when discussing relations with the Soviet Union is a translation of the Russian proverb ???????, ?? ????????. Perhaps better maxims would be, "Reject when suspect" and "Belief brings grief." Yet the fundamental question that goes unanswered is why so many people continue to trust all those "experts" who have shown themselves to be inveterate liars? Has the populace really become that dumb? If the truth is emancipating, the false is enslaving. Indeed Americans are serfs ruled by an oligarchy devoted to the promotion of dumb ideas.

PROPAGANDA ALERT - Carbon dioxide isn't all good for plants

It's often assumed that rising carbon dioxide levels are good for plants, as that's what they need to grow.

But research from the University of California has found higher levels of CO2 in the atmosphere could lower yields and the quality of food.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It never has in the thousands of commercial greenhouses than use CO2 enhancement systems to produce larger crops and higher yields./font>

Of course, this is all research and media bought and paid for by the global warming "carbon credit" cult, who apparently thinks are are stupid enough to fall for this crap!

"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.

Crisis in New Zealand climatology

The official archivist of New Zealand’s climate records, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), offers top billing to its 147-year-old national mean temperature series (the “NIWA Seven-station Series” or NSS). This series shows that New Zealand experienced a twentieth-century warming trend of 0.92°C.

The official temperature record is wrong. The instrumental raw data correctly show that New Zealand average temperatures have remained remarkably steady at 12.6°C +/- 0.5°C for a century and a half. NIWA’s doctoring of that data is indefensible.

Lindzen, a leading specialist on atmospheric physics, has emerged as one of the most prominent climate change skeptics in the world. At age 70, he speaks at home and overseas, arguing that there is little to worry about from emissions of heat-trapping gases from power plants, factories, and cars. We should “go back to dealing with real science and real environmental problems such as assuring clean air and water,’’ he wrote in The Wall Street Journal on Earth Day.

President Obama Social Security Number is Questioned

The Internet was in a buzz today over President Obama's Social Security number and whether or not it is, in fact, a valid number.

While Web surfers are curious about Elena Kagan, the BP oil leak and even Tampa and the Federal Reserve (what did happen to that missing money) but amidst it all, people still want to know, "What's up with Obama's
Social Security Number?"

It began when two private investigators concerned about the number that Obama is issued by Social Security, decided to do some digging. One of the concerns was that the digits from his Social Security Number are from the state of Connecticut. This is a state the President has no past ties to and no explanation as to why he would have a Social Security number filed from that state.

Declassified GAO Report Exposes Fatally Flawed Israel Investigations

The report reveals why the 2010 Non-Proliferation Review Conference at the UN – like the GAO – isn’t really capable of challenging the true drivers of Middle East nuclear proliferation. “Nuclear Diversion in the U.S.? 13 Years of Contradiction and Confusion” is a report so unique and noble in intent that there will probably never be another like it. While it leaves unexplored the ongoing presence, influence, and effect of Israel’s lobbyists working at the center of U.S. presidential administrations, for concerned Americans the GAO provides a snapshot of a moment in time before their Congress, aspiring politicians, and mid-level management of government agencies all “got the memo.”

Spot the difference when the "terror suspect" is a Muslim

On 30 April 2010, a member of a white supremacist gang was convicted of planning terrorist attacks and possessing a jar of the deadly poison ricin and pipe bombs.

...

The trial was barely reported in the media, and no politicians had a word to say about these convicted terrorists. Certainly the prime minister of the day, Gordon Brown, was completely silent.

How different it was in January 2003.

Obama’s “anger and frustration” at the BP oil spill

Right on schedule, in the second paragraph of his prepared comments on Friday, Obama explained that he had seen firsthand “the anger and frustration” of the population in the Gulf, “And let me tell you, it is an anger and frustration that I share as President.”

This has become Obama’s standard operating procedure. In late January 2010, at a press briefing, Obama “furiously slammed Wall Street titans who raked in billions in bonuses” (Associated Press). His press secretary Robert Gibbs let it be known that “the president shares the American people’s outrage on this.” Of course, the bonuses were paid anyway, and a Wall Street analyst understandingly remarked, “It’s good politics for him to say that.”

(Video) George W. Bush's Inaction On 9/11

A short production of news clips detailing George W. Bush's 9/11 inaction, including his post-attack foot dragging on establishing an independent investigation into the worst attack ever on United States soil.

Bush was clearly negligent in his duty on 9/11, not only as President, but also as our Commander in Chief. His inaction alone is reason enough to re-open the 9/11 investigation. Throw in the fact that Donald Rumsfeld was not at his post directing a defense for this country, and that Dick Cheney tracked the Pentagon attack "vehicle" from over 50 miles out and still did not shoot the object down, and you have negligence and dereliction of duty at the highest levels of the U.S. government.

Don't just ask for a new investigation. Ask for a real 9/11 investigation.

Israel’s Intimidation Tactics Won’t Stop Us: First Ship Sets Sail for Gaza!

By Huwaida Arraf

London – 14 May 2010 – At 22:45 local time tonight, the MV Rachel Corrie, a 1200-ton cargo ship, part of the eight-vessel Freedom Flotilla, set sail from Ireland on its way to the Mediterranean Sea. Three, ships from Turkey and Greece will join her, then sail to Gaza.

This past week reports from Israel have indicated that the Israeli authorities will not allow the Freedom Flotilla to reach Gaza with its cargo of much-needed reconstruction material, medical equipment, and school supplies. According to Israeli news sources, clear orders have been issued to prevent the ships from reaching Gaza, even if this necessitates military violence.

Silenced for speaking the truth about Guantanamo

I began my column last week with the words "We know all about Guantanamo". I was wrong. Courtesy of the Toronto press – until a few days ago, when half of them were censored out of the drumhead courts martial that pass for "justice" in this execrable place – I have been learning a lot more.

Because the case involves a Canadian citizen – and because the Canadian government is doing sod-all for its passport-carrying prisoner – it hasn't been getting a lot of publicity on this side of the Atlantic. It should.

With 447 members of congress, every single one of them swearing they know nothing of Israel’s enormous nuclear arsenal, vowing eternal allegiance to Israel over the United States and virtual control of newspapers, electronic news media, thousand of internet news sites, movies, magaizines and television shows, the ability to spin anything from assassination to mass murder into a “poor threatened Israel” yarn has endangered the life of every public figure in the world who stands up for their beliefs.

Obama's Carbon Scheme set to bypass Congress

As you may know, the Environmental Protection Agency

pollutant, giving the agency authority to regulate
CO2 -- regardless of what Congress does.

use the EPA to bypass Congress and seize government
control of the air we breathe -- especially if Congress
could not pass Cap and Tax. That plan is just weeks
away from full implementation through the EPA.

Aceh group planned to kill Yudhoyono

he attacks were designed to cause chaos and be a prelude to the group, which dubbed itself al-Qaeda in Aceh, declaring Indonesia a nation based on Islamic law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The first thing we found about these lads were that they were flown into Aceh by the Indonesian military - ostensibly for humanitarian work ...Now we are informed that these "Qaeda men" were later flown to Gaza to fight the Israeli invader ..But that conflict ended and Al qaeda in Aceh went back to Aceh - or so they say ..... Given the group's obvious US-Indonesian pedigree , there can be little doubt that Al qaeda in Aceh was sent to an Israeli training camp on the West Bank ......The Israeli and US military are heavily involved in training the security forces of Abu Mazens Vichy government there ....In fact Bush and Elliot Abrams activated these forces to stage a unsucessful coup against Hamas ....... Al qaeda in Aceh is making ominous noises against Al Qaeda's rival Indonesian franchise , Jemma Islamiyah, is yet more confirmation that a new Al qaeda has been birthed by the West in the one-time home of our beloved president ,Barry Soetoro ......

Noam Chomsky, Phony American Dissident

Of the overwhelming evidence which contradicted the official explanation that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman who murdered President John F Kennedy in 1963, Noam Chomsky said:"I mean, who knows? And who cares? I mean plenty of people get killed all the time. Why does it matter that one of them happened to be John F Kennedy?"

Shortly after the terrorist attack of 11 September 2001 Chomsky pronounced that Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden had indeed master-minded the attacks, just as George Bush had insisted. Those who questioned the official account and pointed to the glaring contradictions and absurdities of the official account of 9/11 were dismissed by Chomsky as conspiracy theorists

Red Cross scam in Haiti

They say they've spent $106 million.

A Haitian goes in search of evidence that the money was spent to help Haitians.

What about the other $344 million. The Red Cross says it has "long term" plans for that money.

Long term plans when there are people going without food, water, medical care and basic tent housing.

Isn't it about time some Red Cross people went to jail for fraud?

Brand Obama is about being happy consumers. We are entertained. We feel hopeful. We like our president. We believe he is like us. But like all branded products spun out from the manipulative world of corporate advertising, we are being duped into doing and supporting a lot of things that are not in our interest.

The Bailout of Big American Banks Has Cost Trillions More Than We've Been Told

The big banks - such as JP Morgan - also benefit from foreign bailouts, such as the European bailout, as they are some of the largest creditors of the bailed out countries, and the bailouts allow them to get paid in full, instead of having to write down their foreign losses.

These are just a few of the secret bailouts programs the government is giving to the giant banks. There are many other bailout programs as well. If these bailouts and subsidies are added up, they amount to many tens - or perhaps even hundreds - of trillions of dollars.

And then there is the cost of debasing the currency in order to print money to fund these bailouts. The cost to the American citizen in less valuable dollars will be truly staggering.

Mind Control Theories and Techniques used by Mass Media

In the 1958 preface for A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley paints a rather grim portrait of society. He believes it is controlled by an "impersonal force", a ruling elite, which manipulates the population using various methods.

"Impersonal forces over which we have almost no control seem to be pushing us all in the direction of the Brave New Worldian nightmare; and this impersonal pushing is being consciously accelerated by representatives of commercial and political organizations who have developed a number of new techniques for manipulating, in the interest of some minority, the thoughts and feelings of the masses." - Aldous Huxley, Preface to A Brave New World

His bleak outlook is not a simple hypothesis or a paranoid delusion. It is a documented fact, present in the world's most important studies on mass media. Here are some of them:

President Obama has nominated Elena Kagan for Justice of the United States Supreme Court on the basis of an academic publication record, which might give her a fighting chance for tenure at a first rate correspondence law school in the Texas Panhandle.

Kagan served on a Goldman advisory council between 2005 and 2008, with the task of providing expert "analysis and advice to Goldman Sachs and its clients." For her work she earned a $10,000 stipend.
