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

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

Dying ‘good career move’ for French hate-mag

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

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

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

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

Lawsuit says Caltech Provost and others ignored Israeli spying

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

Dad Accuses FBI of Setting Up 'Mommy's Boy' Son in Bomb Plot

The father of an Ohio man arrested Wednesday for allegedly plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol says his son is not a terrorist and was set up by the FBI.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, was arrested on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official, authorities said. He allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs at the national landmark and open fire on any employees and officials fleeing after the explosions, according to government documents.

But his parents paint a different picture, saying their son had a normal childhood and that they were shocked by the arrest.

“I know my son probably better than anyone,” Cornell’s father, John Cornell Sr., told ABC News. “He’s a mommy’s boy. His best friend is his cat Mikey. He still calls his mother ‘Mommy.’ Just a typical kid.”

Extreme poverty is defined as earning less than $1.25 a day in 2005 prices, increased from the $1 a day originally set forth by the World Bank in 1996, which was still not enough to buy a hot dog combo at Costco. According to 2011 estimates, around 17 percent of the world—or around 1.18 billion people—live in extreme poverty. This is a taste of what their lives look like:

Dr. Faurisson stated, in part, "These killings in Paris, at the office of Charlie Hebdo and elsewhere – with 20 dead in all, among whom five were Jews – rightly arouse widespread indignation but Jewish organizations have immediately exploited this indignation for their benefit. They forget that, in large part, it’s been under the pressure of international and French-Jewish groups that France has hastily engaged in all sorts of military expeditions causing so many deaths in the Arab-Muslim world.

Bitcoin's Tracability May Result in Conviction of Ross Ulbricht

Ironically, it would have been much easier to conceal these assets in the traditional financial system. Conventional money laundering is still an enormous headache for prosecutors, and subpoenaing the transaction records for an offshore bank is much harder than simply checking the blockchain.. All these issues stem from a misunderstanding of Bitcoin itself. The service isn't technically anonymous: it's pseudonymous. Each wallet has a hard and persistent identity and a wealth of data associated with that identity. If you don't know who's behind a given wallet, that looks a lot like anonymity, but once a person is tied to a given wallet, their financial activity becomes instantly and painfully public.

Gallup CEO Blasts US Leadership "The Economy Is Not Coming Back"

snip: I don't want to sound like a doomsayer, but when small and medium-sized businesses are dying faster than they're being born, so is free enterprise. And when free enterprise dies, America dies with it.

Let's run some numbers. You will often hear from otherwise credible sources that there are 26 million businesses in America. This is misleading; 20 million of these reported "businesses" are inactive companies that have no sales, profits, customers or workers. The only number that is useful and instructive is the number of current operating businesses with one or more employees.

There are only 6 million businesses in the United States with one or more employees. Of those, 3.8 million have four or fewer employees -- mom and pop shops owned by people who aren't building a business as much as they are building a life. And God bless them all. That is what America is for. We need every single one of them.

FBI Thwarts Terror Plot on Capitol That They Planned

The FBI initially found a patsy by trolling Twitter for support of ISIS. That's exciting because finding someone retarded enough to admit support for murderers is really difficult. Then they sent an in-house jihadist to team up with the patsy to plan a grand terror attack on the nation's Capitol. Heroically, the moment the 20-year-old patsy said he would "go forward with violent jihad" the FBI steps in and declares a victory in the war on terror...

Turkey and Russia: CIA, Israel, France Behind the Terror Attack

Conspiracy theories are sweeping through Turkey and Russia, where government officials and political analysts are accusing the CIA, Israeli intelligence or the French people of masterminding the terrorist attacks in Paris and blaming the Muslims for the violence.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is feeding the rumor mill in Turkey, a key NATO ally, while pro-Kremlin journalists and think tank specialists are spreading anti-Western fantasies in Russia, the Financial Times reports.

"The duplicity of the West is obvious," Erdogan told reporters in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Monday. "As Muslims we have never sided with terror or massacres. Racism, hate speech, Islamophobia are behind these massacres."

My sadness is you thumbing your noses of the gallant crew of our great ship USS Liberty where as 34 of my shipmates were murdered 174 others wounded including me.You do this as a cover -up for the ZIONIST STATE of Israel shame on you all of you!

Cindy McCain and her husband are at the core of the cover-up how dare you be part of history that covers up cold blooded murder of Americans on the high seas. It is incredible how she is now the national spokesperson for Blue Star Mothers of America after her email to James Morris (included at the following URL):

The "Why" The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo by SHAMUS COOKE

snips: The U.S.-backed Afghan jihad was the birth of the modern Islamic fundamentalist movement. The jihad attracted and helped organize fundamentalists across the region, as U.S. allies in the Gulf state dictatorships used the state religion to promote it. Fighters who traveled to fight in Afghanistan returned to their home countries with weapon training and hero status that inspired others to join the movement.

The U.S. later aided the fundamentalists by invading Afghanistan and Iraq, destroying Libya and waging a ruthless proxy war in Syria. Fundamentalists used these invasions and the consequent destruction of these once-proud nations to show that the West was at war with Islam.

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

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

Maurice Sinet, known to the world as Siné, faced charges of “inciting racial hatred” for a column he wrote in July 2009. “L’affaire Sine,” followed the engagement of Jean Sarkozy to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of a major consumer electronics company, the Darty Group.

The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo

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

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

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

First 'Charlie Hebdo' issue since attack sells out

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

Were the Paris terror shootings a false flag? The lack of blood seen in footage of the incident, along with plenty of other, typical factors suggest as much.

What else is new?

But what is often equally telling with signature staged events, as Paris may well have been, is the political agenda to justify power that emerges in the wake of violence, bloodshed and tragedy.

The Peninsula is reporting on calls by the Italian Prime Minister to set up a new European Union-wide intelligence agency that would establish even greater broad powers for the already undemocratic European superstate government.

Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi called Friday for the European Union to have its own intelligence agency following the bloodiest attack on French soil in half a century.

Play Israeli Youths’ Hilarious New “Push the Bibi” Video Game!

In the age of the political gaffe, how could Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu’s now-notorious push to the front of the memorial march in Paris last week not turn heads? Fellow Israelis did a collective facepalm and chided him for presenting “the pushy Israeli, the impolite Israeli” to the world during a moment of global mourning for the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and hostages killed in Paris.

But few went as far as the as-yet-unnamed young creators of “Push the Bibi,” a fun-poking arcade-style game that lets you navigate the Prime Minister to the front of the march. Featuring an image of Bibi wearing a crown, flanked by an Israeli and French flag, the game feels a little like midtown Manhattan during rush hour, but with a layer of bad PR. If your Bibi reaches the coveted spot between Angela Merkel and Ibrahim Keita, the game announces “Game over! Don’t try again.”

15 Signs The Charlie Hebdo Attack Was A False Flag

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

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

Senate bill seeks to force embassy move to Jerusalem

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Dean Heller (R-NV) ushered in the new Congressional session by proposing legislation Tuesday to force the Obama administration to change longstanding US policy and move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The bill, which stands little chance of surviving both Congress and the presidential veto pen, nonetheless represents the opening shots from a newly Republican Congress that has vowed to challenge presidential authority on key foreign policy questions.

It also comes as the Supreme Court readies to rule on a high profile case which could determine Congress’s ability to shape foreign policy and force the State Department to change course and recognize Jerusalem’s status on passports of Americans born in the city.

House votes to cancel Obama amnesties

Brushing aside Democrats’ warnings of permanent political doom, House Republicans voted Thursday to cancel President Obama’s deportation amnesties, casting it as an effort to undo a runaway White House untethered either to the Constitution or even to its own words and promises.

In a debate freighted with political, symbolic and constitutional significance, House Speaker John A. Boehner read the 22 times Mr. Obama had denied he had the kinds of executive powers he ended up claiming last year when he announced his new amnesty, which applies to millions of illegal immigrants, granting them tentative legal status and work permits so they can compete legally for jobs.

The Importance of Being Angry

Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims. Anger has two primary evolutionary functions: to let us know when we are being threatened or attacked (whether by a more 'subtle' abuse or in an explicitly violent manner) while also giving us the power to respond effectively to this threat/attack.

The individual who is not afraid to be angry, will respond immediately, powerfully and, in virtually all cases, nonviolently to any threat or attack, warding off the attacking individual, for example, simply by clearly showing their anger (which is, of course, a clear defence in itself, and watching a snarling dog or wolf will readily convince you of the effectiveness of this form of defence).

For Sale To The Highest Bidder – How Middle Eastern Governments Are Buying Off The US Political Process

The quaint notion that the U.S. political system remotely resembles either a Republic or a Democracy should have been abandoned long ago. Any lingering illusions were surely extinguished last year, when an academic study empirically proved that the USA is nothing more than a corrupt oligarchy.

While having super rich and powerful American oligarchs running the show is one thing, the reality of the situation is actually far worse. Thanks to a recent article in Vice, we now know that foreign governments are aggressively employing their extraordinary wealth to advance their interests here on American soil. In many cases, these are autocratic regimes, which not only do not care about the best interests of the nation, they are often caught actively funding ISIS and even perpetuating 9/11 itself. Here are some excerpts from the piece:

Government Surveillance: A Greater Threat Than Terrorism

Ted Baumann
Activist Post

The man sat on the floor, awkwardly wedged into the far corner of his apartment, his knees drawn up under his chin. The faltering light from the dirty window barely illuminated the book balanced on his knees. Periodically he bent closer to see the words as he scrawled out his thoughts with a dull pencil.

This was the only way he could express himself beyond the scrutiny of government surveillance that sought to know and record his every thought and action.

You may recognize this scene, one of the most arresting from George Orwell’s dystopian fiction classic, Nineteen Eighty-Four. Winston Smith was breaking the law by seeking privacy outside the range of the “telescreen” in his apartment.

In an irony that would no doubt give Orwell grim satisfaction in his own prescience, Britons today are being pursued and prosecuted under an Act of Parliament designed to curb terrorism … for failing to pay a license fee for the televisions in their own homes...

Jews See Netanyahu’s Rude Behavior in Paris as Archetypically Israeli

Following last weekend’s mass rally in Paris, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s behavior in the French capital has raised many Jewish eyebrows. After having been told by the French President that he was NOT invited, Netanyahu went anyway, pushed a female French cabinet minister out of the way in order to get on the VIP bus to the rally, and then elbowed his way to the front line in order to be prominent in any picture of the event.

Giuliani and the hosts also used the segment to criticize both President Obama and current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for their apparent unwillingness to condemn the religion of Islam for the attacks and fully embrace Islamophobia. Specifically, the former Republican Presidential candidate said de Blasio made an “irrational” act by pulling police out of Muslim mosques in New York.

I was in the middle of working on an article covering real U.S. economic stats versus manipulated statistics when the Charlie Hebdo shootings took place. And though I knew the implications of the event would be far-reaching, I was originally undeterred from my financial subject matter. I had already covered in previous articles the inevitability of ISIS attacks on Europe and America, including the “warnings” of Saudi Arabia in August of last year that jihadists would target the EU within months and the U.S. a month later.

In September of last year, ISIS publicly urged attacks on French and U.S. citizens.

“Hollande’s anger at Netanyahu was evident during (Sunday evening’s) ceremony,” said Haaretz. Held at Paris’ Grand Synagogue. “(A)ttended by hundreds of members of the local Jewish community.

What is the purpose of Mainstream Media ?

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

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

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

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

A decade ago, Republicans in Congress were renaming French fries “freedom fries” and French toast “freedom toast” because of that country’s refusal to support the Iraq war. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld belittled the “old Europe” French, President George W. Bush mocked an American reporter for speaking French to the French president, and conservative critics called the French “weasels,” “appeasers” and worse. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, was ridiculed by the Bush administration for being “too French” and looking French, and his fluency in French was a liability in the campaign.
