"A Very Heavy Agenda" - New documentary released about the neocons and how they run foreign policy for Dems & Repubs

They work both sides of the Democrat Republican fence (not that it is much of a fence anyway) and are now up to their eyeballs in reviving the cold war.

About the video:

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.

The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Part 2: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The New Neocons 1hr 35mins

After the Cold War, the US-NATO reach expanded significantly to take in most of the old Soviet Union clients in the Warsaw pact. Neoconservative darling Robert Kagan and his diplomat wife Victoria Nuland played key roles inside and out of various administrations and think tanks as they greased the skids for a US-sponsored coup in Ukraine. Part 2 shows the resurrection of old cold warriors from beltway depths to deliver blatant propaganda with techniques reminiscent of a red scare era that had only just faded from memory. US-funded outfits like Radio Free Liberty are pitted against Russia’s RT as each nation accuses the other of waging an ever more desperate and transparent "Information War".

Part 3: Maintaining the World Order 1hr 30mins

"When the Berlin wall fell, our work wasn't finished". -- Victoria Nuland, November 2013

“Fuck the EU” -- Victoria Nuland, February 2014

While stage managing the American empire has undoubtedly proved to be a more difficult task now than in the bipolar world of the cold war era, it is not for lack of greed or hubris that the Kagans and others continue to sell their vision. Did they create these ideas because they truly believe in America's right to be the dominant force in the world? Or, do these ideas help sell weapons and control resources like oil and rare minerals? Part 3 shows interview footage of an obscure PNAC member (Thomas Donnelly) taking credit for the ominous “New Pearl Harbor” phrasing in the notorious 'Rebuilding America’s Defenses' document. But the evidence shows the genesis of the concept to be patriarch Don Kagan, in conjunction with his son Fred, in prior op-eds that call for ‘a catalyzing event’. Other newly sourced footage shows the pair advocating for a US military ground invasion of Palestine on September 12th, 2001 and displaying an unnerving prescience about the 9/11 attacks themselves.

How Big Money and Big Brother won the British Elections

The Conservatives have won the 2015 elections with a slim majority. Labour and the Liberal Democrats suffered unexpected crushing defeats, prompting their leaders, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg, to resign. And despite winning a significant percentage of votes, UKIP only managed to win one seat, with its leader Nigel Farage also resigning after losing to a Tory MP.

But the Tory victory reveals precisely why British democracy is broken.

The ultimate determinant of which party won the elections was the money behind their political campaigns?—?the winning and losing parties correlate directly with the quantity of funding received. Yet there is also compelling evidence of another factor?—?interference from Britain’s security services.

Christopher Bollyn on “Solving 9/11 ends the war” on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio (audio)

On this day in history, April 15th, 1912, the Titanic sank. Today’s guest Christopher Bollyn, author of Solving 9/11, says the American ship of state is sailing towards doom – and the only way to turn it around is by facing the truth about 9/11.

Christopher just returned to his home in Europe after a “Solving 9/11 Ends the War” speaking tour in the US. (I will be speaking in some of the same venues during next week’s We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo book tour.) We discuss America’s, and the world’s, gradual awakening to the truth about 9/11 – and the possibility that Netanyahu and the neocons could launch another huge false flag to torpedo the Iran nuclear agreement and cover their 9/11 tracks via a wider war that could go global and nuclear.

Richard Gage, AIA LIVE STREAMED from Commonwealth Club of California, Tuesday, Sept 8 @ 5:45PM Pacific

StingRay: I Received the following announcement by email from this evening, Sept 7, 2009:.

1. An important event for the 9/11 truth movement will occur on Tuesday night in San Francisco when Richard Gage, AIA, speaks at the oldest public forum in the nation, The Commonwealth Club of California. Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth will webcast this event live on the Internet from our website

We follow in the footsteps of the great David Ray Griffin, who first broke the 9/11 Truth barrier at the Commonwealth Club last year. In just under 40 minutes we will present the scientific evidence for the explosive controlled destruction of the 3 World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. We will examine the behavior of these buildings as well as the explosive evidence found in the debris. More evidence may be found on our website and DVD.

A screening of this historic moment will be presented in New York City at 56 Walker Street. Also, everyone is encouraged to tune in on youy own computer as Mr. Gage explains why the official conspiracy theory put forth by NIST is not supported by the evidence, and that explosive controlled demolition is, very unfortunately, the only viable explanation for the WTC destruction in New York City on September 11, 2001.

Pre-register! If you are local and coming please make sure to get your tickets today as it might be sold out.

We’ll see you live at 5:45!

An email request from Brasscheck TV to spread the word

Got the text below in an email from today. I thought I would pass it on to WRH readers who might not be familiar with Brasscheck TV to check them out and spread the word to others if they can see the value in the service they provide.

The idea for Brasscheck TV first popped up three years ago.

Thanks to advances in Internet technology, it suddenly
became fast, easy and inexpensive to share video with the
world - and we had a lot of video to share!

Brasscheck TV started with five subscribers.

Today, we are now, as of this mailing, 50,351
strong. Every single member was generated by

We've never spent a nickel on advertising.

Though we didn't start counting until 2007, we do know that
since that time we've served up 14,468,329 videos - all for free.

Why do we do it?

To give you the other side of the story, the side
the US news media relentlessly waters down,
distorts, and even outright censors.

Our hope is that the videos we share help you:

1. Become mentally independent from the herd
which the corporate-government-media complex is
working overtime to mislead, rip off and exploit
at every turn.

2. Suggest ideas for evasive action so
that you can avoid becoming a victim of
the corporate-government-media's
endless scamming.

3. Provide you with resources to educate yourself
and the people in your circle about the nature of
the forces that are aligned against normal

We believe that the more you know about what's
really going on - in government, in "health" care,
in the financial industry, etc. - the easier it will
be for you to make decisions that benefit YOU
and not the corporate-government-media scam

Here's our message today:

First, we want to thank you for all your support
to date.

Second, we want to ask you to keep sharing
the videos.

Please make it a point to let friends, family
and colleagues know about

It's a growing library of over 650 videos on a wide
variety of topics available free 24/7, indexed and

Three, check out some of the projects that have
been inspired by Brasscheck TV like Jazz on the Tube
and The Real Food Channel.

* Jazz on the Tube (
is a free video library of hundreds of videos featuring
creative, uplifting, intelligent music (the kind of
music you NEVER hear about in the mass media.)

* The Real Food Channel (
is a free video library with information about the most
revolutionary act any human being can make:

To stop eating the garbage that the corporate-government-media
complex pushes as "food" and support real farmers, real
communities and real health.

We may not be able to quickly reform the government,
the Pentagon, the "health care" industry, or the energy
industry, but we can completely control what we put
in our mouths right now.

Every bite you take is either a vote for the bad guys
(and against your own health and the health of the
country) or a vote for the good guys. It really is
that clear cut.

And if you think Pentagon/CIA propaganda is thick,
the "food" industry makes their dissembling and
manipulation seem like amateur hour.

No one lies better or manipulates more than the "food"
industry - and they're even bigger in dollars and cents
than the oil industry!

The Real Food Channel (,
a brand new venture started in June, is designed to give you
the "why" and "how" info you need to join the battle against
this truly devilish enterprise.

When we kick out the food "leg" of the corporate-government-media
complex, we will be doing the whole corrupt structure some serious
damage - and, at the same time, doing ourselves and the people we
love a whole lot of good.

If you like what we're doing, let people know.

If you don't, Fox News is on 24/7 and I'm sure they and their
advertisers would love the extra business.

You can check out the Real Food Channel here:

P.S. Please share Brasscheck TV e-mails and
videos with friends and colleagues.

That's how we grow. Thanks.


And of course it's only sensible when viewing the videos from their site to bear in mind that, as they state on their home page, they do not necessarily endorse the views presented in any particular video, they are basically providing a means of publicizing videos that would not get by the usual censorship mechanisms you would find in mainstream media sources. /Sting Ray

(video/audio)Noam Chomsky: Obama’s Stance on Gaza Crisis “Approximately the Bush Position”

In a visit to the State Department Thursday, President Obama made his first substantive comments on the Middle East conflict since Israel’s attack on Gaza. Obama first mentioned his commitment to Israel’s security, without affirming his commitment to Palestinian security.
