Attacks continue on Ukraine from Russian territory

Russian military aggression towards Ukraine has persisted unabated since Kremlin-backed guerillas shot down a commercial airliner on July 17, killing all 298 people on board, including more than 80 children.

While the tragic event has all but deprived Russia of plausible deniability over its involvement in the eastern Ukraine war that has claimed at least 825 civilian and military lives, Russia has with regularity been shelling Ukrainian positions from its side of the border, according to Kyiv authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... most of whom just quit!

CNN is headlining that the US has "proof" Russia is shelling Ukraine. Okay, why would Russia do something that stupid? And shells fired from Russia can only reach into the Independent Republics, which means Kiev is claiming Russia is shelling the separatists. Now, Kiev has been trying to provoke Russia for weeks with cross-border shellings and that stunt with the APC and Putin has refused to bite, so apparently the latest plan is to claim Russia is attacking and launch the war to end the threat of the Ruble to the US dollar.

Fox Host Megyn Kelly Flubs Ukraine Flight Limits To Bash Obama Over Israel

Fox News host Megyn Kelly misinformed her audience by claiming that that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not issued a travel ban over Ukraine, in order to bash President Obama over Israel. In fact, the FAA has banned commercial travel over Ukraine since April.

Reuters Debunked: Khodakovsky Denies Interview Aspects

As I suspected would happen, the exclusive Reuters interview in which "Commander Alexander Khodakovsky acknowledges rebel fighters had BUK missiles" has been challenged.

In my analysis of the Reuters article (see Ukraine Rebel Commander Admits Having BUK Missiles; Damning Contradictions?), I point out considerable discrepancies in what Reuters author Anton Zverev wrote and actual quotes Reuters presented.

The discrepancies were so big I stated "It appears to me Reuters may have stretched this interview quite a bit."

Thus I am not surprised to discover Khodakovsky challenged huge aspects of that interview, in terms of things he stated, did not state, and even timing of events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media gets caught lying again to push a war agenda. Should they succeed I suggest all the Reuter's people be on the front line of the invading force.

CNN Poll: Majority of Americans side with Israel in Gaza fighting

CNN Poll: Majority of Americans side with Israel in Gaza fighting
Posted by CNN Political Unit July 21st, 2014

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/07/21/cnn-poll-americans-cle...

Washington (CNN) – A majority of Americans say Israel’s military actions in
Gaza are justified, with only four in 10 saying that Israel has used too
much force, according to a new national poll.

But a CNN/ORC International survey conducted Friday through Sunday also
indicates that favorable opinions of Israel have edged down since earlier
this year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For propaganda to work, it must be believable and this claim that the majority of Americans support Israel does not match with conversations I have had around here, especially coming from a news organization with a noticeable pro-Israel slant. Plus, one of Edward Snowden's recent revelations is that NSA routinely tampers with these online polls. So let's double check that claim of US supprt for Israel. (See next down)

It was Putin's missile!

And here's the spin war verdict: the current Malaysia Airlines tragedy - the second in four months - is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists", armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up.

Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton said so. Because batshit crazy Samantha "R2P" Power said so - thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. [1]

BEX ALERT - Two American soldiers die in Israel-Gaza conflict

Among the 20 Israelis who have died in the conflict, Max Steinberg and Sean Carmeli were two Americans fighting in the Israeli army.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CBS News is wagging two Americans serving in the Israeli army who have died in the invasion of Gaza to try to drag Americans' sympathies back towards Israel's side. But by doing so, CBS has reaffirmed the public perception of pro-Israel bias in that the hundreds of dead Gazans, many of them children, remain nameless and faceless in CBS' coverage.

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS, the legally elected government of Gaza, responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have not killed anyone or done more damage than knock a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative

The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media.

With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Defending the charges at today’s press briefing in an increasingly testy exchange with reporters, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf referred the press to social media, while reiterating that there was totally better evidence out there that they just can’t see.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Don't you get it?!? WE will tell you what to think. That's our job! We're the @#$%ing government! You don't think for yourself. Just BELIEVE what we say, dammit. If we tell you two plus two equals five, @#%$ing believe it, and report that to those dumb sheep, because we need them to pay the bills and breed more soldiers if we are going to force the world back onto the US dollar to save the banks! What is WRONG with you people? God didn't give you a brain so you could actually USE it!!" -- Official White Horse Souse

(ahem)

It should be clear from the MH17 hoax that the US Government still does not fully comprehend that the tactics that worked in the 1950s and 1960s are hopelessly obsolete in the age of the internet.

This is actually a good thing, because the more they play these propaganda stunts and fall flat on their face, the quicker they hasten their own collapse, sending the US Government into the dustbin of history along with that other cold-war fossil, the USSR.

MSNBC Contributor Accuses Network Of 'Biased' Coverage Toward Israel

MSNBC contributor Rula Jebreal took issue with the network's coverage of the conflict in the Middle East on Monday.

Speaking on Ronan Farrow's show, she accused MSNBC of covering the Israeli perspective far more than the Palestinian side.

“We are disgustingly biased when it comes to this issue," said Jebreal, an Italian-Palestinian journalist with dual Italian and Israeli citizenship. "Look how [much] air time Netanyahu and his folks have on air on a daily basis — Andrea Mitchell and others. I never see one Palestinian being interviewed on these same issues —"

“I’m going to push back a little on that," Farrow interjected. "We’ve had Palestinian voices on our air.”

“Maybe for 30 seconds, and then you have twenty-five minutes for Bibi Netanyahu, and half an hour for Naftali Bennett," Jebreal countered, referring to Israel's prime minister and minister of the economy, respectively.

Is this your government? Because it's sure not mine. It should be the objective of every decent American to overthrow this present government, because the crimes they continue to commit are sure to destroy the United States.

BEX ALERT - Iran’s fingerprints all over Hamas-Israel conflict

While media have widely reported on the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas, few have picked up on the significant Iranian connection to the conflict. Indeed, one cannot comprehend the events of recent weeks without an adequate understanding of Iran’s role in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me see if I have this right. ISIS admits kidnapping and killing those three Israeli teenagers in the west bank but Netanyahu uses that crime to launch an all-out invasion against the people of Gaza, and this writer places the blame for the whole mess on Iran? Are they using serious recreational drugs up at The Star?

Ron Paul: Don't Blame Putin For Malaysian Jet Shoot Down

Many are pointing fingers at Russian President Vladimir Putin for giving weapons to the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels that are being linked to the shootdown of the Malaysia Airlines jet that crashed in Ukraine, but former Rep. Ron Paul says that Putin shouldn't be blamed.

"Putin is a little bit smarter than that," Paul told John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Friday. "I don't think he would ever come close to participating in an act like this."

Tell NBC News: Let Ayman Mohyeldin Report from Gaza

Yesterday Israel escalated its attacks on Gaza by launching a ground invasion. Ten days into this latest assault, Israel has killed at least 250 Palestinians and caused much destruction, including destroying el-Wafa rehabilitation hospital.

Hours before the invasion started, the news broke that NBC News had ordered their veteran correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin to leave Gaza after he witnessed and reported on Israel's killing of Palestinian children Mohammed, Ahed, Zakaria, and Mohammed Bakr while they were playing soccer on the beach and the heart-wrenching reactions of the families.

While NBC claims the reason he is being pulled is due to security concerns, the network has sent in another correspondent to replace him.

Following Bombed Kids, NBC Pulls Reporter For Reporting Truth

"Ayman Mohyeldin, the NBC News correspondent who personally witnessed yesterday's killing by Israel of four Palestinian boys on a Gazan beach and who has received widespread praise for his brave and innovative coverage of the conflict, has been told by NBC executives to leave Gaza immediately. According to an NBC source upset at his treatment, the executives claimed the decision was motivated by "security concerns" as Israel prepares a ground invasion, a claim repeated to me by an NBC executive. But late yesterday, NBC sent another correspondent, Richard Engel, along with an American producer who has never been to Gaza and speaks no Arabic, into Gaza to cover the ongoing Israeli assault (both Mohyeldin and Engel speak Arabic).

Militants in Gaza fire rocket at Israel as humanitarian cease-fire window expires

Palestinian militants in Gaza fired a rocket at Israel Thursday just as a five-hour U.N. humanitarian cease-fire expired, the Israeli military said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is trying to claim that HAMAS fired the rockets just BEFORE the cease fire ended. They have Charles Krauthammer on right now putting the blame for the whole mess on HAMAS.

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

Police open fire on Palestine solidarity activists at Los Angeles rally for Israel

An officer with the Department of Homeland Security opened fire on Palestine solidarity activists as they drove away from a pro-Israel rally in front of the Federal Building in Westwood in Los Angeles on Sunday. The activists have also complained that they were attacked by Israel supporters.

The Electronic Intifada’s Ali Abunimah was attacked by Los Angeles police in the same area while filming a pro-Israel rally last week.

After being shot at, the men were detained by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and then smeared by various media outlets as violent members of Hamas.

BEX ALERT - Column: This time, let Israel finish job

The play-by-play for Israeli-Palestinian eruptions is so well-worn that it’s become formulaic.

Hamas terrorists in Gaza find an excuse to escalate their daily rocket attacks against settlements and towns in Israel, forcing Israel to the breaking point of its patience for random assaults on its citizenry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza.

Meanwhile, there have been large public protests outside several BBC facilities and more are planned in coming days.

Webmaster's Commentary:

ABC airs Gaza bombing devastation images - says it's in Israel

In the latest case of Western mainstream media confusing the geographical location of warzones, an ABC News anchor described footage of Gaza homes shortly after their destruction by the IDF as belonging to Israel.

On July 8, veteran ABC news anchor Diane Sawyer, 68, opened up a news segment, entitled Under Attack, with the following introduction: “We take you overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today, as Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky, all part of the tinderbox, Israelis and Palestinians [sic].”

In two images that accompanied Sawyer’s narration, she says, “Here are two Israelis trying to salvage what they can, while a woman is standing speechless among the ruins.”

There was just one problem: The images of wide-scale physical destruction and human suffering shown in the images were not from Israel, but rather from the Gaza Strip, where the locals have been enduring days of aerial bombings.

Jul 10 07:57

Israel escalates aerial offensive on Gaza

Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault in Gaza Thursday hitting hundreds of Hamas targets, and the Palestinians said a family of eight was killed in a strike that destroyed their home. Israel's missile defense system once again intercepted rockets fired by militants at the country's heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AOL is trying to sell Israeli media propaganda that Israel hit hundreds of Hamas targets, but the photos clearly show apartments and houses in civilian neighborhoods. Israel bombed a cafe where the customers were watching the World Cup. There are no no photos of any damage on the Israeli side and no casualties--not even wounded people. This is why ABC's Diane Sawyer used photos of the destruction in Gaza and tried to claim it was Israel. As for the "successful" intercepts by Iron Dome, the actual rate is less than 50%, with the Palestinians firing 15 rockets into Israel (at a cost of less than $1000 each) and Israel intercepting just 7. Israel won't say how many Iron Dome rockets $50,000 each, paid for by the US taxpayer) they had to fire to hit those 7 inbounds, so the success rate may actually be worse.

FLASHBACK - Media "Distortions"

ABC's John Stossel apologizes!

On February 8th, 2000 20/20 broadcast a story by John Stossel claiming that foods sold at organic and health food stores were no more safe to eat than food bought at conventional supermarkets. Stossel claimed that tests commissioned by ABC TV showed that food purchased at organic markets had higher rates of E. Coli contamination and equivalent amounts of pesticides.

Investigation by the Environmental Working Group revealed that the experts cited by ABC's 20/20 for the story had never actually performed the tests ABC claimed in the story.

Despite the embarrassment, Stossel repeated the story on July 7, 2000, informing the EWG through an intermediary that he would not even respond to the allegations. ABC TV, however, embarrassed by the publicity, ordered Stossel to apologize.

Stossel has also been accused of mireporting in his story on Erin Brockovich, the California woman who found Chromium 6 in her town's drinking water.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As ABC tries to distance itself from their attempt to show the destruction of Gaza and claim it is Israel suffering from Palestinian rockets, it is important to recall that such blatant deceptions are business-as-usual for the corporate media. Here are just a few examples.

Jul 10 07:26

ABC News tells viewers that scenes of destruction in Gaza are in Israel

More than fifty Palestinians have been killed and another 450 wounded since Monday in Israel’s ongoing assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” by the Israeli army.

As usual, mainstream media outlets are straining to paint Israel as the victim, defending its people against irrational Palestinian rocket fire.

There is no equating the killing and maiming of dozens of innocent Palestinians with scared Israelis seeking shelter from crude rockets that rarely cause damage. But that hasn’t stopped media outlets from trying, and in some cases, outright lying, to distort the violence.

In one stark example, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer misidentifies scenes of the aftermath of Israeli missile strikes in Gaza as destruction caused by Palestinian rocket fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ABC, the "Food Lion" network, has been forced to issue an apology, which they made on their twitter feed ... once. But don't worry, ABC, we here in the independent media will make sure the whole world knows what you sphincters did!

The Palestinian father who was blown clean out of his home: Tragedy of man who came round to learn his wife and son had died in direct hit on his house

A Palestinian father was blasted yards from his house in the Gaza Strip after a direct missile strike that killed his wife and son.

Shocking photos of Mustafa Malaka sprawled in the rubble emerged this evening as Israeli bombing of the Hamas-controlled region instesified.

Today the Israeli army stepped up its offensive, killing 17 Palestinians including 11 women and children in strikes, hiking the overall death toll to 47 in two days, hospital officials said. More than 300 people have been wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary:

However, Goldberg then retweeted three other people (this, this and this) who seem to believe it was the latter; i.e., that we’ve now learned Iraq did have WMD. So apparently Goldberg believes this as well.

AMA ‘junk science’ study used to falsely label vitamins and minerals as dangerous

The mainstream media is awash and abuzz with news about a new study which purports to show that taking vitamins, minerals and other supplements can be dangerous. However, even a perfunctory look at the study reveals it to a seriously flawed study using junk science.

The study, published in the American Medical Association’s (AMA’s) Archives of Internal Medicine, actually consisted of nothing more than an analysis of a series of three questionnaires given to almost 39,000 women over a 19 year period.

The researchers analyzed the self-reported results and determined that there was a 2.4 percent increased risk of death associated with the use of multiple vitamins. Though such an amount is statistically insignificant, that did not keep the media from jumping on the story as proof of the danger of taking vitamin and mineral supplements. And the study authors themselves declared:

“We see little justification for the general and widespread use of dietary supplements”.

It would have been one thing if the magazine had exercised any degree of creativity or editorial tie-in while touting the law, e.g. "7 Tricks to Get Your Boyfriend to Sign Up For Overpriced Health Insurance-in Bed!" But alas, Cosmo's Obamacare headlines have all the joie de vivre one expects of diktats from the Ministry of Information: "5 Important Questions About the Affordable Care Act"; "Valerie Jarrett: 'All Insurance Plans Are Required to Cover Contraception"; "What the Affordable Care Act Means for Women With Pre-Existing Conditions"; and the hilariously defensive "Fox News Wrongly Believes Obamacare is 'Advertising' in Cosmopolitan."

Upon entering the room, defendant Taylor fired "five rounds of bean bag cartridges from a 12 gauge shotgun within a distance of approximately only six to eight feet from Mr. Wrana, far less than the distance allowed for discharging that shotgun, and, consequently, savagely wounding and killing Mr. Wrana," the lawsuit states. "Mr. Wrana bled to death as a result of the shotgun wounds inflicted upon him by defendants. The Cook County Medical Examiner ruled that Mr. Wrana's death was a homicide caused by blunt force trauma to his abdomen as a result of shots fired from a bean bag shotgun."

Brooklyn rapper and Bloods gang leader convicted of murders, drug charges

An up-and-coming hip hop artist faces a life prison sentence following a conviction by a federal jury on Thursday in Brooklyn, N.Y., for the executions of three members of a rival gang, drug trafficking and racketeering, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kind of makes you wonder if the huge "success" of rap music conceals the fact that this is the way these druggies launder their cash. "Wow! We sold 15 million copies of my latest rap album!!!!"

AE911Truth Slandered by CNN – Action Required!

Washington Post - Boko Haram suspected of kidnapping 60 more women. Does anyone care?

Nearly three months have passed since Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from a dormitory. Boko Haram is suspected of kidnapping approximately 60 more women and girls. And #Bringbackourgirls has, by nearly every measure, failed.

It’s not surprising. Internet activism has a finite life span. In a matter of days, it blinks into existence, then blinks into oblivion.

Still, the disinterest now — even following additional Boko Haram kidnappings — has left some observers with a bad taste in their mouths.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lack of interest comes from two sources. First off, we here in the United States have severe problems that have to take priority over what is happening on the other side of the world. It is their nation, let them solve their problems. We The People have to solve ours, which includes a government that is lying to us about the economy, immigration, Obamacare, global warming, etc.

Which brings me to the second source for a lack of concern over Boko Haram. Given the tsunami of official USDA Choice government bovine excrement we have had to endure over the decades, most Americans recognize the Boko Haram kidnappings as another variation on the theme of torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, Saddam's nuclear weapons, Assad gassing his own supporters, etc. as just another in a long line of fictions to trick Americans into supporting yet another US invasion of yet another resource-rich area of the globe.

Japan Unveils 'World's First' Android Newscaster

Japanese scientists on Tuesday unveiled what they said was the world's first news-reading android, eerily lifelike and possessing a sense of humour to match her perfect language skills.

The adolescent-looking "Kodomoroid" -- an amalgamation of the Japanese word "kodomo" (child) and "android" -- delivered news of an earthquake and an FBI raid to amazed reporters in Tokyo.

USS Liberty: Are We “Conspiracy Theorists” or “USS Liberty Truthers”?

A while back I learned of a Jon Faine radio interview in which former Australia Prime Minister Malcom Fraser mentioned that he has concluded that the attack on the USS Liberty was deliberate.

Within that interview Faine trots out the oft-used “Conspiracy Theorist” pejorative and since it is improperly applied with regard to the USS Liberty I set out to let him know.

I emailed his radio station asking for Faine’s email address so I could share my opinion.

He replied with his personal email address and invited me to send him a comment.

Pirates with Nukes

Entirely dispelled are any lingering doubts about the disdain Israel has for international law. Before going any further, just reflect upon all the apologist responses to the global condemnation of the Mediterranean Massacre. All the toadies that carry the water for the Zionist despotism are predictable and deceitful. Based on a foundation of sand their mantra ignores the facts and rests on false axioms.

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.

The Propaganda War About Ukraine

Recently, Germany’s Der Spiegel featured a lengthy editorial damning Russia regarding Ukraine; it was titled “How Russia Is Winning the Propaganda War,” and it made many allegations, none with documentation, and not a single one with a link to assist the magazine’s online readers to reach easily the presumed (but unidentified) sources. It was the type of propaganda for which Fox “News” in the U.S. has become famous, though Spiegel is centrist (not “right wing”).

BEX ALERT - Will ISIS plan a 9/11-style terror plot against the U.S.?

Republicans are sounding the warning that the next 9/11-like terror plot could emerge from the regions of Iraq and Syria that are currently dominated by an extremist group bearing down on Baghdad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right. And Iraq stole incubators from Kuwait and Saddam had nuclear weapons, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Back in 1979, when the people of Iraq got fed up with living under a US puppet regime and kicked the Shah out, the US Government and the media branded the Iranians as "terrorists", "separatists", militants", and "insurgents" until the reality of a popular revolt against US proxy rule became undeniable. The same is happening in Iraq. When you look at how 30,00 US trained and financed Iraqi security forces have been swept away, it is obvious this is not the work of a splinter "Islamic" group, but a full on popular uprising.

The US is on the verge of getting kicked out of Iraq and they are desperate to re-invade and re-conquer Iraq, but dare not admit as such to the American people lest the war-weary American people decide a sequel to the illegal US invasion of Iraq (based on the lie of Saddam's nuclear weapons) is not a good idea.

They must be pretty desperate to try to wag 9-11 at us, in yet another attempt to scare us all into going to war against a nation that dares break free of US control. Are they desperate enough to set off a major explosion in the US to blame on the Iraqs? Certainly false-flag attacks are a well-known means for dictatorships to get what they want, such as Hitler's staging a phony attack on the German radio station in Gleiwitz, which was blamed on Poland to trick the Germans into an invasion. Israeli agents bombed British and US assets in Egypt and planted evidence to frame Egyptian Muslims in what later exploded as the Lavon affair scandal. Likewise, as Israel was attacking the USS Liberty, Israel claimed Egypt was attacking that ship, until the crew managed to get a radio message out past the Israeli jamming identifying their true attackers.

And if there is a really big bang, to be blamed on the next invasion target, that big bang will tell all of Americans that the NSA spying and TSA crotch-groping, all clear violations of the Constitution, really doesn't work to stop terror at all!

Reality Check: Guns Sales Up, Crimes Committed With Guns Down

Earlier this week, Michael Bloomberg's new anti-gun Everytown released a bogus report claiming since Newtown in December 2013, 74 school shootings have taken place. The report was so bogus, even CNN went out of the way, twice, to correct the record. More from Ed Morrissey:

For the second time in two days, CNN went out of its way to debunk the Michael Bloomberg/Barack Obama claim that mass shootings have become epidemic and a “new normal” in American society. The day after CNN debunked the Bloomberg-funded Everytown claim that there were 74 Newtown-style mass shootings since Sandy Hook, Jake Tapper interviewed Northeastern University criminology professor James Alan Fox to look at the data rather than the anecdotes. Over a 40-year period, Fox concluded, mass shootings have remained flat — even while the population of the country has grown significantly over the same period.

19 Reasons Why You Can Laugh When Anyone Tells You That The Economy Is In Good Shape

Have you heard the one about the “economic recovery” in the United States? It’s quite funny, but it is not actually true. Every day, the establishment media points to the fact that global stock markets have soared to unprecedented heights as evidence that the economy is improving. But just because a bunch of wealthy people have gotten temporarily even richer on paper does not mean that the real economy is in good shape. In fact, as you will see below, things just continue to get even tougher for the poor and the middle class. Retail stores are closing at the fastest pace since the fall of Lehman Brothers, the rate of homeownership in this country is the lowest that it has been in 19 years, one out of every five families do not have a single member that is employed, and one out of every five children is living in poverty. We are working harder, earning less and going into more debt.

These numbers are absolutely staggering, and bode ill for any kind of true economic recovery here in the US at any time soon.

Is Russia orchestrating east Ukraine violence?

Russia is widely accused of orchestrating the separatist insurgency in Ukraine's eastern provinces despite the Kremlin's attempts to portray it as a home-grown movement and its repeated denials of involvement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More bovine excrement from the same people who reported the collapse of World Trade Center Seven 26 minutes before it actually happened!

The violence in eastern Ukraine is caused solely by Kiev, because when you bomb people for refusing to follow a junta installed by force, they will tend to shoot back!

To recap...

The EU wanted Ukraine to become a member, in order to enslave the Ukrainian people to the European Central Bank's Ponzi scheme system which by design produces more debt than money with which to pay that debt (or didn't you wonder why they had to impose negative interest rates on savings accounts today?) Russia made a better offer to Yanukovich, and Ukraine announced they were dropping the deal with Europe to go with Russia's offer. It was at that point that front groups for US intelligence agencies, such as USAID and CANVAS started fomenting violent protests and drove the elected government from power. Then the junta set itself up, and announced their intention to go ahead with joining the EU, accepting austerity for the people, and so forth; in short imposing the severe hardships we have seen in other countries trapped by private central banks such as poverty, mass unemployment, and general declines.

Eastern Ukraine wanted nothing to do with a government they had not elected and which clearly did not represent their interests. Crimea took it one step further and voted to secede from Ukraine. This is perfectly legal for them to do under the UN Charter which recognizes the right of all people to self-determination. Crimea then voted to join with Russia, and Russia accepted.

Now the BBC (the same people who reported the collapse of World Trade Center Seven 26 minutes before it actually happened) are trying to make it look like this is all somehow Russia's faulty to obfuscate the fact that this latest in a long series of US covert overthrows of foreign governments has backfired badly, preferring to send young people off to die in a war with Russia, even rick a nuclear war, rather than admit to being at fault for the whole mess in the first place!

Frankly, I am not surprised they are not allowing comments on this article.

NBC, CBS Skip Latest Developments in VA Scandal as It Explodes to New States

The Veterans Affairs scandal engulfing the Obama administration has spread into Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, but only ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday found time to cover the latest developments. GMA news reader Amy Robach revealed, "We're learning those secret waiting lists were also kept at ten facilities in these four Midwestern western states with nearly 100 veterans waiting more than three months for treatment." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Despite the eight hours of air time available to the three network morning shows, CBS and NBC avoided the story. ABC allowed 21 seconds. Obviously, the prisoner swap involving a U.S. soldier and five Taliban terrorists has rightly dominated the news. However, The four-hour-long Today show still found time to devote five minutes and 13 seconds on the subject of "six months to six pack" abs. CBS This Morning offered three minutes and 50 seconds to the phenomenon of "urban farming." Clearly, time was available.

FLASHBACK - CLIMATEGATE - The Problems with Al Gore

There are two problems with Al Gore. First, he's a demagogue who lacks an appreciation for the ethics and methods of science. Second, he's a not a scientist, but a celebrity and politician who does not understand the technical aspects of science. Put succinctly, the man simply doesn't know what he's talking about. But Gore is now advising the world on complex technical issues related to energy and climate. That's a problem for the human race.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Global Warming Cult is using politics to drive the science to support their desired agenda. But this is nothing new. It has happened before ... with lethal results!

In 1928, in the USSR there was a man named Trofim Denisovich Lysenko, a favorite of Stalin, and ultimately, a con-artist. He was as popular then in the USSR as Al Gore is in the US today.

Lysenko's prize theory, which suited Stalin's political needs at the time, was that plants and animals could inherit traits acquired from the environment in a single generation. That is, if you used cooling to trick Winter wheat seeds to germinate and grow in the Spring ( a technique already used in the US at the time) the seeds from the chilled plants would go on germinating in the Spring in perpetuity.

There was very little science in Lysenko's science, but this "revolution" suited Stalin's desire to outdo the accomplishments in genetics which had occurred under Lenin. Honor upon honor was heaped on Lysenko (just as is done with Al Gore today) and real scientists who questioned his theories were shunned, vilified, and removed from their positions (not unlike the experiences of those who question the basic beliefs of the global warming cult). The state media of the USSR proclaimed the virtues of the Lysenko method beyond all doubt and question, just as the state media of the USA proclaims the "Science is settled" regarding AGW. But Lysenko had no more real science training than Al Gore, and his theory that the environment could permanently alter the genetic structure of crops in a single generation was completely wrong.

However, for political reasons, the USSR mandated that all farmers had to use the Lysenko method (just as the present government intends to force us all to use the "Al Gore Cap and Credit" method) and the result was widespread famine when, during the following spring, the second generation wheat refused to germinate.

This illustrates the problems which can result when the government thinks it understands science, or that science can be subordinated to political agenda.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

Freedom of Speech Except When It Comes to Israel

It would be funny if it wasn't so creepy. An author or journalist can write anything he wants about the United States -- or, in fact, about any foreign country -- without causing legions of critics to question the propriety of his doing so. That is, unless the subject of the author's work is Israel.

Think about it. Books have accused FDR of having advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor while others argue that the U.S. government -- in the form of the FBI, CIA or even Vice President Lyndon Johnson -- had President Kennedy killed. In other words, books that accuse U.S. presidents and U.S. government agencies of high treason are okay. This is America, and authors, journalists and bloggers can write what they like.

European Commission Blames Social Networks For ACTA Failure; Worried About Its Imminent Directive On Copyright Enforcement

It's interesting to see De Gucht linking the growing hostility to ACTA with the storm generated by SOPA/PIPA, and giving the credit for stopping those US bills to a "hostile campaign" waged by social networks. You can tell this really worries him, because he says something similar about social networks and ACTA immediately afterwards:

Bain Capital Owns Clear Channel (Romney Supported by Talk Show sphere)

Wouldn’t it be great if a Republican presidential candidate could just buy the support of just about every major conservative talk show host in America? Well, it may not be as far-fetched as you may think.

Clear Channel owns more radio stations (850) than anyone else in the United States. They also own Premiere Radio Networks, the company that syndicates the radio shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, among others.

Needless to say, Clear Channel basically owns conservative talk radio in the United States. So who owns Clear Channel?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course all these conservative propagandists, in addition to their radio shows on Clear Channel, also have programs on TV as well, into which they carry their agenda. after all, they cannot be pro-Romney on their radio shows, then be pro-anyone else on TV! So, Bain not only controls the pro-Romney bias of Clear Channel but indirectly the content of TV political reporting as well!

Franklin Lamb : State Department’s Wikipocrisy

So Who Exactly is Sowing Strife in Lebanon?

Perhaps not since the Vietnam War, with the exception of Iraq, has an American Embassy so inextricably inserted, bullied and entangled itself into the internal affairs of another country. Or so brazenly targeted a nationalist political party that won the largest number of votes in the most recent election and that likely represents a majority of the country’s population. Not since 1982 has it occurred in Lebanon.

Wikileaks: A Big Dangerous US Government Con Job

For anyone who has studied the craft of intelligence and of disinformation, a clear pattern emerges in the Wikileaks drama.

Wikileaks: A Big Dangerous US Government Con Job

The story on the surface makes for a script for a new Oliver Stone Hollywood thriller. A 39-year old Australian hacker holds the President of the United States and his State Department hostage to a gigantic cyber “leak,” unless the President leaves Julian Assange and his Wikileaks free to release hundreds of thousands of pages of sensitive US Government memos. A closer look at the details, so far carefully leaked by the most ultra-establishment of international media such as the New York Times, reveals a clear agenda. That agenda coincidentally serves to buttress the agenda of US geopolitics around the world from Iran to Russia to North Korea. The Wikileaks is a big and dangerous US intelligence Con Job which will likely be used to police the Internet.

SHOCKER: US State Department ‘cleared’ the release of Wikileaks documents published so far

Despite public perceptions, Wikileaks does not make the material it receives available directly to the public. It sends the documents to newspapers, which decide what news is fit to print. As of this writing, Dec 2, 2010, four days after the New York Times and other newspapers began publishing scores of articles; Wikileaks has only posted 623 of the 250,000 documents they claim to have released to their website. (2) Neither the New York Times, the Guardian or the other newspapers apparently in possession of these materials have published them either.

If We Lose our Internet Freedoms Because of Wikileaks, You Should At Least Know Why

The TIME magazine article is curious because it seems that right off the bat they were telling us how to interpret Wikileaks in such a way that sounded strangely familiar to George W. Bush back just after 9/11…

“By March, more than one million leaked documents from governments and corporations in Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and the former Soviet Bloc will be available online in a bold new collective experiment in whistle-blowing. That is, of course, as long as you don’t accept any of the conspiracy theories brewing that Wikileaks.org could be a front for the CIA or some other intelligence agency.” TIME Jan. 2007

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Especially when there are blogs that were blowing whistles a decade earlier (WRH started as a sub-page on my business web site on March 11, 1994). This author is correct; TIME Magazine was promoting Julian Assange and WikiLeaks before they had actually done anything at all!

The Pentagon has proven time and again its love of creating, chasing and trying to undermine what it calls enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as several other nations it deems rogue.

“The United States is always involved in some kind of war of aggression. It rarely spends an entire year without invading some foreign country,” said editorial columnist Ted Rall.

The United States government has repeatedly stated that the treat from Al-Qaeda against America is very real, and that all action is being taken to eliminate that threat. Nobody in their right mind would question such a serious assessment about a sensitive national security matter from the world's leading democracy. But the truth is that over the past fifty years America's democratic institutions like the press have been weakened, and an elitist National Security State has risen, and taken control over all aspects of government.

Bloomberg Reports-FED Did 9 Trillion Dollars in "Off Balance Sheet" Transactions in Last 8 Months (Remember Enron)

We now know a little about some of the money the Federal Reserve loaned out to "avert the crisis."

But note, we only know "a little" and we only know about "some" of it.

Here's a shocker...

Bloomberg news reported that the Federal Reserve carried out an estimated $9 TRILLION in "off balance sheet" transactions in just eight months - and we still don't have a clue what those were about, what they bought or loaned and who benefitted.

Note: The banking lobby succeeded in getting Representative Grayson, one of just a tiny handful of Congressman who asked these kind of pointed questions, voted out of office recently.

Assange Prosecution: A Brazen Effort to Kill Alternative Media

Now that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is in custody, we can expect the U.S. government to request his extradition and prosecute the Australian for espionage. “Any such proceedings would set up a test of whether the First Amendment’s protection for a free press extends to a website with a worldwide audience,” notes McClatchy today.

In 1917 the United States enacted the Espionage Act, a law that has made it a crime to “willfully communicate” secret government information that could expose national secrets held by officialdom. Since the law was passed, however, the government has avoided prosecuting journalists for publishing classified information.

On a more curious and conspiratorial note, the Assange arrest is in the middle of the “news cycle downswing” of the Wikileak which has divided the journalist community. The third “dump” has received considerable attention for what was not “dumped,” and brought even more light on earlier Wikileaks which have now become suspect.

WikiLeaks 'struck a deal with Israel' over diplomatic cables leaks

According to new revelations, Assange had allegedly struck a deal with Israel before the recent 'cable gate', which may explain why the leaks “were good for Israel,” as the Israeli prime minister put it.

According to an Arabic investigative journalism website [2], Assange had received money from semi-official Israeli sources and promised them, in a “secret, video-recorded agreement,” not to publish any document that may harm Israeli security or diplomatic interests.

The sources of the Al-Haqiqa report are said to be former WikiLeaks volunteers who have left the organisation in the last few months over Assange's “autocratic leadership” and “lack of transparency.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

TEHRAN (FNA)- A former Pakistani army commander said that the disclosure of classified documents by the whistleblower site of Wikileaks is a US plot to create rift among friendly and neighboring states.

"The US has a hand in this plot, and these reports (posted by the WikiLeaks website) are part of the US psychological warfare," former Chief of the Staff of the Pakistani Army General Mirza Aslam Beg told FNA in Islamabad on Tuesday.

He stated that the US could prevent the leak of information if it wanted to do so, and warned that the real plot and conspiracy pursued by these reports will be unraveled in future.

Certainly, even aside from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s fulsome praise of Binyamin Netanyahu, what is said and what is not represent the message Israel and its partisans in the US Government (itself heavily Zionist and “Israel First” in orientation) want the world to hear, believe and accept.

That Afghanistan is corrupt is not news. Just how corrupt is news.

According to a report by Scott Shane, Mark Mazzetti and Dexter Filkins of the New York Times, WikiLeaks exposes how, "From hundreds of diplomatic cables, Afghanistan emerges as a looking-glass land where bribery, extortion and embezzlement are the norm and the honest man is a distinct outlier."

The New York Times report reveals how "…the collection of confidential diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to a number of publications, offers a fresh sense of its pervasive nature, its overwhelming scale and the dispiriting challenge it poses to American officials who have made shoring up support for the Afghan government a cornerstone of America’s counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan."

Why Wikileaks Doesn't Add Up

One out of seven news outlets have noticed, thus far, that Wikileaks seems to have a "soft heart" when it comes to Israel and India. Zbigniew Brzezinski caught on, finally, declaring that Wikileaks is an "intelligence operation" using "pointed" information carefully "seeded" into a combination of minor scandals and chickenfeed.

There is absolutely no question for the press that Wikileaks is totally phony, we all know it, it is blatantly slanted, clearly not only anti-American but aimed at Islam, the easy target of all time. Wikileaks is also trying to be more and more clever about seeming less the Mossad "game theory" construct that we all know it is. The "clever" is fun to watch, more "ham handed" than esoteric.

More indications WikiLeaks is the 9-11 of the blogs; a fake event staged to justify protecting dictatorship from exposure.

'Never waste a good crisis" used to be the catchphrase of the Obama team in the runup to the presidential election. In that spirit, let us see what we can learn from official reactions to the WikiLeaks revelations.

The most obvious lesson is that it represents the first really sustained confrontation between the established order and the culture of the internet. There have been skirmishes before, but this is the real thing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The propaganda to "polish this turd" is on warp drive. WikiLeaks has only been around for a little over three years and is the manufactured and heavily promoted darling of the corporate media. But WikiLeaks is a newcomer. Other websites have been around for much longer. WRH traces its history back to 1994 when we blew the whistle on the murder of White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster. The corporate media has continued to pretend we do not exist even though our readership exceeds that of most newspapers and our radio show reaches around the globe on the internet and the entire North American continent on shortwave. Compared to us, WikiLeaks is the skirmish in a war we have been fighting all along.

Now, I am not saying this to whine about the lack of media coverage for WRH, because I don't really give a damn whether ABCNNBBCBS talks about me or not. But one needs to look at the intense coverage given WikiLeaks while hundreds of other websites and alternative news providers who have been around much longer and broken some really important stories, continue to be ignored.

WikiLeaks is a manufactured front, built over three years at heavy expense in time, money, and political capital. Every cheap public relations trick is being used to convince American web-surfers that Julian Assange is the go-to guy for reality, with Assange already dissing the 9-11 truth movement and reporting Mideast events spun to favor Israel. In desperation, they are even using a tawdry sex scandal to lure people into the WikiMania!

Surprising, however, is Time’s candor on Israel. It minces no words. US support for the creation of Israel had alienated the Middle East: it had been a costly error, motivated not by national interest but petty considerations of presidential politics. Truman had supported the creation of Israel in order to court American Jewish votes. This was the plain truth: a US President had placed his electoral chances ahead of a vital national interest. Apparently, in those days, Time could write the plain truth without worrying about the tide of flak from the American Jewish community.

The Wall Street Pentagon Papers: Biggest Scam In World History Exposed - Are The Federal Reserve’s Crimes Too Big To Comprehend?

What if the greatest scam ever perpetrated was blatantly exposed, and the US media didn't cover it? Does that mean the scam could keep going?

That's what we are about to find out.

I understand the importance of the new WikiLeaks documents. However, we must not let them distract us from the new information the Federal Reserve was forced to release. Even if WikiLeaks reveals documents from inside a large American bank, as huge as that could be, it will most likely pale in comparison to what we just found out from the one-time peek we got into the inner-workings of the Federal Reserve. This is the Wall Street equivalent of the Pentagon Papers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wall Street tried to pull the greatest financial scam in history, selling mortgage-backed securities with mortgages that were already in default, or mortgages re-pledged as collateral to multi0ple investment packages, or in some cases no actual collateral at all. The insiders made billions on the deals.

But as the fraud became known, the banks, pension plans, corporate investment accounts who had bought these investments, all demanded a refund on the fraudulent mortgage-backed securities and the attached credit swaps. The demands were enforced with threat of public exposure or a run on the US financial system as was demonstrated in February 2009, when a massive electronic withdrawal of funds nearly crashed the US banking system; a financial shot across the bow!

So Wall Street started buying back the bad paper, in order to stay out of jail, but money flowed out of the crooked financial instituions faster than Ben Bernanke could print it up. Printing up new dollars simply cheapened all dollars leaving no way to pull ahead of the mounting losses. Because of the massive losses on the mortgage-backed securities buyback, banks hovered at insolvency.

The banks needed new assets to put on the balance sheets, and the US Government provided one by confiscating wealth from the people and giving it to the banks. But whereas Franklin Roosevelt's 1933 gold grab had been open and above-board, the US Government decided that this new wealth-grab had to be more covert in order to prevent a public backlash from a population already angry at high taxes, low services, endless wars, and persistent funding of Israel's war machine.

So the government started offering tax incentives to corporations that encouraged offshoring. The theory was simple. If Americans list the means to pay their mortgages, the banks could grab the homes, some 60 million so far, and put those on the balance sheet to stay solvent! And the best part was that the Americans whose homes were confiscated were fooled into thinking it was their own fault!

I received a lot of email from people who refuse to believe the US Government would ever do such an evil thing, but if allowing banks to take private homes to recapitalize, then you tell me why the Obama administration has continued that Bush-era policy!

Helen Thomas slams WSU for ending award named for her

Journalist Helen Thomas fired back at Wayne State University for ending an annual diversity award in her name, telling the Free Press Sunday night that "the leaders of Wayne State University have made a mockery of the First Amendment and disgraced their understanding of its inherent freedom of speech and the press."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at the freedom medals, the Oscars, and the Nobel Peace Prize, it has become obvious that these awards are handed out not for merit but for obedience. As long as you can be brainwashed into thinking that these little bits of metal and ribbon really mean something, and that you should want them, you will forever be a slave to whatever those who hand out such trinkets want you to think, say, or do.

Helen Thomas understands a great truth and one you would do well to study; that the first step in being free of those who would enslave you is to free yourself from wanting what it is they hand out as treats to their favorite pets. The day you willingly walk away from awards, or decide you no longer want the cushy prestigious jobs in media/entertainment, that is the day you stop being a slave, and can tell the world what you honestly think is the truth.

As Obama and Al Gore proved, these "coveted" awards are handed out to help sell the credibility of a person and an agenda to a gullible public. I thank Wayne State University for ending their Helen Thomas Award because by the mere act of having done so, Wayne State University proved that award was never worthy of the person it was named for. In claiming "Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints" at the very same time they punish Helen Thomas for her viewpoint, Wayne State has not only proclaimed its own servitude to Israel, not only made itself a laughing stock before the world, but demonstrated that American academia, once the bastion of freedom of inquiry and the exchange of ideas, has deteriorated into just another pointless and costly fashion accessory purchased on credit and worn to bolster ones self-image

Helen Thomas does not have an award.

Helen Thomas does not need an award.

In speaking truth to power at the expense of her career, Helen Thomas has firmly established herself as the Edward R. Murrow of our time.
P.S. Dear Wayne State University.

Helen Thomas is of Lebanese descent. Lebanese are Arab Semitic. So Helen is herself a Semite. Are the clueless idiots at Wayne State University now to be considered anti-Semitic?

The Wiki-leaks documents need to be considered in a broader context.

Helen Thomas' school scraps award over 'Zionists' remark

Wayne State University, the Detroit, Michigan, institution that Thomas graduated from in 1942, said in a statement Friday that the school will no longer give out the Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in the Media Award.

"Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints," the school's statement said. "However, the university strongly condemns the anti-Semitic remarks made by Helen Thomas during a conference yesterday."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at the freedom medals, the Oscars, and the Nobel Peace Prize, it has become obvious that these awards are handed out not for merit but for obedience. As long as you can be brainwashed into thinking that these little bits of metal and ribbon really mean something, and that you should want them, you will forever be a slave to whatever those who hand out such trinkets want you to think, say, or do.

Helen Thomas understands a great truth and one you would do well to study; that the first step in being free of those who would enslave you is to free yourself from wanting what it is they hand out as treats to their favorite pets. The day you willingly walk away from awards, or decide you no longer want the cushy prestigious jobs in media/entertainment, that is the day you stop being a slave, and can tell the world what you honestly think is the truth.

As Obama and Al Gore proved, these "coveted" awards are handed out to help sell the credibility of a person and an agenda to a gullible public. I thank Wayne State University for ending their Helen Thomas Award because by the mere act of having done so, Wayne State University proved that award was never worthy of the person it was named for. In claiming "Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints" at the very same time they punish Helen Thomas for her viewpoint, Wayne State has not only proclaimed its own servitude to Israel, not only made itself a laughing stock before the world, but demonstrated that American academia, once the bastion of freedom of inquiry and the exchange of ideas, has deteriorated into just another pointless and costly fashion accessory purchased on credit and worn to bolster ones self-image

Helen Thomas does not have an award.

Helen Thomas does not need an award.

In speaking truth to power at the expense of her career, Helen Thomas has firmly established herself as the Edward R. Murrow of our time.


P.S. Dear Wayne State University.

Helen Thomas is of Lebanese descent. Lebanese are Arab Semitic. So Helen is herself a Semite. Are the clueless idiots at Wayne State University now to be considered anti-Semitic?

HELL YES!!!!!!! :)

PAUL BALLES : CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST

Why is the American public generally unaware of Israel’s theft of U S military secrets?

The Western media adamantly refuses to report anything critical of Israel.

Gordon Duff, Senior Editor at Veterans Today, observed that “America learned, long ago with the infamous Jonathan Pollard case, that secrets going to Israel end up in the hands of America’s enemies.”

According to Duff, “America’s most vital Cold War defence information, nuclear technology, air defence systems, classified weapons and even NATO defence plans in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, all went to Russia as part of an arrangement between the Soviets and Israel. Pollard is doing life in prison for this.”

RICHARD FALK : Ahmet Davutoglu — Turkey’s Foreign Minister

Given the flow of recent events I felt it might be helpful to make my appreciation of Davutoglu’s approach and achievements available to an American voice.

Over a year ago I published a short profile of the Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, in the Turkish daily newspaper, The New Zaman. After the May 31, 2010 flortilla incident involving an Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla led by the Turkish passenger ship, Mavi Marmara, Mr. Davutoglu demanded an apology from Israel as the basis for the restoration of normal relations. Along with other Turkish leaders, Davutoglu questioned the Israeli narrative and criticized Israel for its brutal tactics that defied international law and morality.

Sat Dec 4th, Colorado Public Television broadcasts Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup

Welcome Colorado Public Television Channel 12 Viewers!

A few thoughts after the broadcast….

If you saw the broadcast of “Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup” on Colorado Public Television Channel 12, you may be feeling a variety of things–from curiosity to depression to anger or fear. This is normal. If our government was involved in sponsoring the events of 9/11 in any way, the implications of this are truly horrific for our country. This is a very difficult subject for all of us. Recognizing this, we’d like to offer a few thoughts.

ADL slams Helen Thomas as 'vulgar anti-Semite'

Helen Thomas doubled down on the controversial comments that led to the end of her long career during a speech yesterday to an Arab-American group in Dearborn, Mich., prompting a fierce condemnation by the Anti-Defamation League.

“I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank,” Thomas said. “No Americans would tolerate that — white-only roads.”

“We are owned by the propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is. ... We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.”

FRANKLIN LAMB : BELLEMARE’S STL ‘PROCEDURAL’ PROBLEMS

Indict, Quit and Blame the system!

Based on phone and internet discussions with international lawyers at the London School of Economics, the International Court of Justice in the Hague, and colleagues who work in the area of Public International Law an emerging consensus is developing concerning perhaps fatal procedural issues that continue to arise at the STL. Such problems, which make it unlikely that the Hariri Assassination case will ever go to trial. Some international lawyers who have worked on international tribunals, are familiar with Rules of Procedures at the ICJ and the ICC and are following the STL are increasingly concluding that there will not be a Trial.

On reality and its alternates: Glenn Beck vs. Julian Assange

Glenn Beck, our first personality, is an under-educated radio and TV personality turned political pundit. He was born in 1964 and has only a high school education. By his own admission Beck spent at least 15 years of his early adult life as an alcoholic and drug addict. He became suicidal in the mid 1990s and fantasied about imitating the manner of death chosen by the singer Kurt Cobain. He was pulled back from the brink with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. Fifteen years is a long time to baste a young adult's brain in mind-altering substances, and I will leave it to the reader to decide if that history qualifies such a brain for political preaching. Yet, it is as a political wise man that millions of Americans now regard Glenn Beck.

WIKILEAKS SHOCKER: Did Abbas know in advance about the devastating blitz on his countrymen in Gaza?

By Stuart Littlewood

One of the most grotesque Wikileaks revelations so far is the disclosure that Palestinian top dog (Fatah section), Mahmoud Abbas, was told in advance about the murderous assault on his countrymen in Gaza two years ago.

Some claim that the Wikileaks reye-openers are a ‘dirty tricks’ operation by people with a large axe to grind. It is certainly odd that ‘evidence’ is selected to portray Arab states as eager to see Iran zapped for an unproven nuclear threat when, actually, the Middle East is far more anxious about the very real and present nuclear threat from Israel.

JEFF GATES: WIKILEAKS AND THE SOUND OF SILENCE

The facts suggest that WikiLeaks is less about the right to know than the right to deceive.

Jeff Gates

The scope and scale of WikiLeaks is a marvel to behold. Some praise it as the ultimate form of democracy. Others as the epitome of the most sacred of liberty’s principles: the right to know.

Yet the real story here is not what’s revealed but what’s withheld. The marvel is not what we now know but what is already known that is left unsaid. And what is given an interpretive spin by those newspapers granted priority access.

The Wiki Hoax

There are two opinions of Wikileaks. The worlds intelligence services all, every single one, believes Wikileaks is simply an intelligence agency playing games. They say this to each other, Vladimir Putin and Zbigniew Brzezinski have announced it to the world and others are following suit.

Nobody, at least nobody typically “answerable” will say the word “Israel” but it is what they mean when they say “intelligence agency.” They mean Israel. Every Wikileak does something to help Israel in a different way at a different time. If Israel has a problem, a Wikileak is there., part of the solution. This time, Secretary Clinton was in the way and Wikileaks showed up to gut the State Department and give Israel the usual “buff and polish” job they usually do.

Flashback: The Gulf of Tonkin Incident (How US military exercises, provocation and misleading claims of enemy aggression lead to the Vietnam war)

In the absence of independent journalism, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution — the closest thing there ever was to a declaration of war against North Vietnam — sailed through Congress on Aug. 7. (Two courageous senators, Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Gruening of Alaska, provided the only "no" votes.) The resolution authorized the president "to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression."

The rest is tragic history.

Nearly three decades later, during the Gulf War, columnist Sydney Schanberg warned journalists not to forget "our unquestioning chorus of agreeability when Lyndon Johnson bamboozled us with his fabrication of the Gulf of Tonkin incident."

Schanberg blamed not only the press but also "the apparent amnesia of the wider American public."

And he added: "We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth."

Cdn 9/11 Gatekeeper Jonathan Kay attacks academic freedom

It seems that Mr. Kay believes his versions of controversial issues such as 9/11, vaccines and fluoride in drinking water should not be contradicted in classroom teachings, in particular, regardless of where the truth lies on any of these issues. There is only one correct version of these issues, according to Mr. Kay, and that's his version – which also happens to be the version of corporations with a vested interest in all of these issues.

In a previous Canadian Charger article, we pointed out that in researching his forthcoming book, Mr. Kay avoids evidence related to 9/11 and solely focuses on attacking the mental soundness of those academics and professors who've written papers disputing the official version of 9/11, even going so far as to call them delusional, although Mr. Kay has no psychiatric credentials whatsoever to be making such claims about anyone, let alone respected university professors. We also wondered – in that article – why a major newspaper such as the National Post would print such drivel.

Mental Ghettos Weaken the US: People Who Lie to Themselves

This special kind of stupidity is independent of inherent intelligence. In this case brain power is overpowered by psychological deficiency, namely self-delusion.

This delusion is not genetically produced, but is a result of external influences, notably political, government, media and corporate propaganda intentionally designed to produce delusional beliefs and thinking. Who does this? All sorts of commercial and political interests. The result is a series of biases and blocks, such as cognitive dissonance, to objective facts and information that creates denial about very important conditions affecting the planet, the nation and individuals. People afflicted with this deadly combination appear stupid to those outside their mental ghetto that they gladly inhabit, along with similarly afflicted people.

PHILIP GIRALDI : THIRTY-NINE CONGRESSMEN CAN’T BE WRONG

Netanyahu, who despises President Barack Obama, has rightly seen the cajoling by the United States as weakness and as the consequence of failure by Washington to articulate any coherent policy in the Middle East, meaning that he knows that Israel has been empowered to get away with virtually anything it might demand. Netanyahu has obligingly gone to the whack jobs and wing nuts in his own rickety right wing coalition and asked them to present him with a wish list for Washington, confident that Hanukkah has already begun and Christmas is right around the corner.

Why Some on the Internet Are Starting to Wonder—Is WikiLeaks for Real?

The global media is in a tizzy, repeating the same mundane, stale information from 251,287 cables released by WikiLeaks, a media organization that claims a loosely organized network of international contributors. Curiously, such publications as The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Guardian, Le Monde and Spain's El País have carried the leaks dutifully, even though their well-policed pages are otherwise governed by highly divergent philosophies, policies and practices. Even more curiously, all news organizations repeat the same cherry-picked factoids that their ace reporters apparently culled from the documents.

Jonathan Kay Attacks a "Truther" to Introduce His Own Foxified Account of the 9/11 Attacks

Jonathan Kay has made it an issue of national news in The National Post that my graduate student, Joshua Blakeney, is the proud winner of the Queen Elizabeth II scholarship for academic excellence. This award will help Joshua in supporting his research for his MA thesis on the academic controversies surrounding the background, substance, and outgrowths of the events of September 11, 2001.

The Editor of The National Post was in a conflict of interest when he wrote the story on my graduate student's scholarship without revealing that Mr. Kay too has an externally-funded agenda of research and publication on 9/11. Moreover, Mr. Kay misrepresented my graduate student's thesis subject by planting the disinformation that "Washington did 9/11." The point of Mr. Blakeney's thesis, as we have discussed it so far, is to evaluate the academic literature on the contested events of 9/11, not to jump immediately to the needed outcome of an empirically-verifiable alternative to the current unsupported and unsupportable government conspiracy theory. Such a needed outcome will require much more than the forthcoming MA thesis by my gifted and hard working graduate student.

It used to be the honorific of Frank Wisner, the first chief of political warfare for the Central Intelligence Agency, used to describe the C.I.A.’s plethora of front organizations and newsmedia stooges that he was capable of playing (like a great organ with many keyboards) for synthesizing any propaganda tune that was needed for the day.

Wikileaks and Espionage - Israeli Style

To whom should this release be attributed? Who benefitted?

The U.S. is under attack by an enemy within. Skilled at game theory warfare, this foe targets the most sensitive realm of U.S. national security: its relations with other nations. The online publication of a quarter-million documents chronicling diplomatic exchanges is notable both for what's omitted and what's included. To determine whether this latest release was a form of espionage, analysts need only examine how this treasure trove of trivia was peppered with documents certain to damage U.S. relations. To identify its origins, analysts must answer a key question: Cui Bono? To whose benefit?

Also as I understand it, the taser that she was waving in Grant face actually belonged to Mehserle.
