Probing SITE Intelligence Group

James F. Tracy
Activist Post

Since mid-August 2014 major news organizations have conveyed videos allegedly found online by the SITE Intelligence Group. Unsurprisingly the same media have failed to closely interrogate what the private company actually is and whether the material it promotes should be accepted as genuine.

The Search for International Terrorist Entities Intelligence Group was co-founded by Rita Katz in 2001. Katz is an Iraqi-born Jew. Her father, an Israeli spy, was executed by Iraqis as a result of his intelligence activities...

Decapitation American Style

America’s anti-humanism can cause shock among hyenas, vultures and other creatures that feed on death in accordance with rather than opposition to nature. But as the empire sinks more deeply into the political economic sewage of its own creation, its weaponized psyche grows more malevolent and the behavior pattern more dangerous. The public has to be nearly lobotomized to allow its leadership to perform at such odds with reality. That is almost the case.

Present postures re the Ukraine and ISIS are so idiotic it’s almost impossible not to think a comedy writer is responsible for the foreign policy directives coming from the mental health crisis center we call our central government.

WHY DID THE WEST CREATE ISIS WHEN THEY ALREADY HAD ZIONISM?

If America had been truly serious about putting Iraq on the right path and instituting a genuine democracy, it would have issued legislation to protect human dignity and the right of the people to live within a framework of liberty, peace, security and safety! Instead, the United States did just the opposite, disrupting Iraq’s civilizational project.

“Strangely enough, America today is fighting ISIS, and has sent experts to Iraq for that very purpose. For whom? For the love of Iraqis? And for whose benefit does America support ISIS and provide it with weapons in Syria? For whose benefit does it support the al-Nusra Front? … Today it is essential for us to stand against, pay careful attention to, and analyze carefully, all American and Israeli plans. We must all join to defeat their criminal designs for undermining Iraq, and their tool of implementation, ISIS.”

Contractors Ready to Cash In On ISIS War

Obama pledged that the war against ISIS won’t be fought with U.S. ground troops. He didn’t say anything about contractors, who see this as “the next big meal ticket.”

America’s rapidly-expanding war against ISIS won’t involve large numbers of U.S. troops on the ground, President Obama is promising. And it’s clear that airstrikes alone won’t beat back the extremist group. Which means that if the President wants to have any hope of meeting his far-reaching goal of destroying ISIS, he’s going to have to rely on private military contractors.

At least, that’s what the contractors are hoping.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Concealment: that is what this administration is all about; lies, lies, and more lies, to achieve its geopolitical goals.

There is no real difference between the objectives of Bush and Obama: control of Middle Eastern Oil, and having it paid for only with US dollars; the destruction of America's middle class through outsourcing/offshoring; and the destruction of any competing currency, like the Russian ruble or the Chinese yuan, through war if necessary.

So our best and brightest in our military will die, and be maimed for life, ultimately for corporate pursuit of private profit; cold comfort for their friends and family, but this is the hard truth.

Once you understand this, all the military misadventures in which this country has been mired ever since 2001 come into clear, sharp, and painful focus.

We are not having our freedoms protected by these wars; we are not any more safe because them, or because of the extrajudicial assassinations, upon which which President Bushbama is so keen, which have occurred.

After 9/11, the horrific pieces of legislation which have been put into place, like the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA guarantee that the protections which used to exist under a rule of law, guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights, no longer exist.

The American Establishment Combats Resurgent “Isolationist” Threat

It had become apparent in 2013 that the American people had grown averse to America’s involvement in wars, and this was given empirical confirmation by a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center in November 2013, which revealed that 51 percent of Americans believed that their country’s military involvement was excessive.[1] Once again the bugaboo of isolationism entered the mainstream spotlight, the derogatory label being attached to those who would like to cut back America’s global intervention.[2] Opposition to the alleged resurgent isolationism united all sectors of the mainstream establishment–liberals, moderates, and conservatives, the ultra-interventionist neoconservatives and the more moderate traditional foreign policy establishment.

Congress Sees New War on ISIS as Ticket Out of Sequestration

“When America has a visible enemy, America usually unites,” noted an upbeat Sen. Bill Nelson (D – FL). And unity in Congress means runaway military spending.

The White House declaration that “we are at war” with ISIS is an extremely welcome sign to Congressional hawks, not just because they’re really into war, but also because it’s a great excuse to ditch sequestration and start hiking spending anew.

“We should have found a way to get rid of sequester long ago,” noted Senate Armed Services Chair Carl Levin (D – MI), who expressed hope that the new war “will help a little bit” with that. Sens. John McCain (R – AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R – SC) both declared anything short of a full end to spending caps a “great disservice” to the country, and a threat to the war goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many of these warmongers in Congress, in both parties, own extensive shares in the military industrial complex.

We have homeless Vets sleeping in our streets; our public education system is a mess; our prisons are in a mess;and the previous wars in which this country is engaged have left the US morally and fiscally bankrupt.

So what does Congress want to do?!? Create more wars.

And we can see how catastrophically those wars have gone; Iraq is in meltdown; Afghanistan, 13 years on, can not be characterized as a military "win" in any way, shape or form; and Libya?!? Melting down in front of our eyes as I type this.

No one in Congress who supports these wars is worthy of being re-elected in the mid-terms in 2014; not one single person.

It is unfortunate that the US government doesn't have a voting mechanism for "none of the above", which would necessitate another election, until we finally get Congressional Representatives who actually represent We the People; not the huge corporations which fund election cycles.

Obama’s ISIS War is Not Only Illegal, it Makes George W. Bush Look Like a Constitutional Scholar

Andrew J. Bacevich, the Boston University political science professor and former Army colonel who lost his son in the Iraq war in 2007, in a recent Reuters article.

I have spent the past several days outlining my deep concerns about the “ISIS crisis” and Obama’s willingness to employ extreme propaganda in order to once again embark on another poorly thought out military campaign here and here. What I have also come to realize is that his latest war plan is brazenly illegal and unconstitutional.

While critics have been questioning the legality of U.S. military campaigns consistently since the end of World War II, one trend has become increasingly clear. With each new President and each new war, we have witnessed those who hold the office act more and more like dictators, and less and less like constitutional executives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Obama orders the first bombing in Syria, it will be an unspeakable act of war against a sovereign nation which has not attacked, or done anything to harm, the United States.

Syria will have its Ambassador to the UN complain, but any discussion of this in the Security Council will be null and void, because the US will veto any resolution to attempt to get the bombing to stop.

This will be be both a violation of US law, and a violation of international law.

What appears to be happening here, is that Obama is playing picador with Syria in order to cause Syria to invoke its mutual defense pact with Iran.

At that point, the US government will scream about Iran and Syria daring to fight back, and attack Iran, which has been, the P5+1 negotiations not withstanding, been the goal all along.

Israel may well coordinate some military activity with the US because it wants to see Tehran burning in flames, and "regime change" happening here.

But the two thousand pound gorilla, snoring on the Steinway here, is Russia. Numerous Russian political and military leaders have stated, over the past several years, that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

So ultimately, all these military misadventures are headed toward a war with Russia that the US government and military most likely cannot win, because we do not have the manufacturing, the money, or troop strength to insure a positive outcome.

However, in watching the corporate presstitutes' attempts to "groom" a war weary American people for war, and more war does not seem to be working this time, and DC is beginning to realize that its propaganda is not working.

We the People must speak out peacefully and honestly: let's fix the problems here at home before we have the hubris to tell other countries how to run their lives. No more war; no more funding for war; and no more corporate-funded candidates who do the work their corporate masters demand of them, but conveniently forget their alleged constituents.

Because if this doesn't end soon, we will see the entire world engulfed in a nuclear war which could well obliterate life as we know it.

Gaza and the Threat of World War

On 31 July, the National Defense Panel in Washington published a remarkable document that called for the United States to prepare to fight six major wars simultaneously. At the top of the list were Russia and China – nuclear powers.

In one sense, a war against Russia has already begun. While the world watched horrified as Israel assaulted Gaza, similar atrocities in eastern Ukraine were barely news. At the time of writing, two Ukrainian cities of Russian-speaking people – Donetsk and Luhansk – are under siege: their people and hospitals and schools blitzed by a regime in Kiev that came to power in a putsch led by neo-Nazis backed and paid for by the United States. The coup was the climax of what the Russian political observer Sergei Glaziev describes as a 20-year “grooming of Ukrainian Nazis aimed at Russia”. Actual fascism has risen again in Europe and not one European leader has spoken against it, perhaps because the rise of fascism across Europe is now a truth that dares not speak its name.

U.S. Fear/War Mongers Win This Round

The fear/war mongers got to the New York Times editorial board between May 23, 2013 and September 10, 2014. The Times and President Obama both gave in to the wrong people.

The American public doesn’t want to go to war unless there is something out there that frightens them.

This explains why all of our wars have been preceded by dire warnings of what will happen if we don’t militarily engage the enemy.
In President Obama’s Wednesday night speech, he repudiated his own caution and prudence by falling in line with those who think there is no fear out there that war cannot overcome.

The New York Times editorial board sonorously endorsed the President’s decision under a headline that informs the nation that the drums of war have had their effect: “The Attack on ISIS Expands to Syria,”

Obama takes hypocrisy to new high levels

In laying out his plans to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS, President Obama said this: “America, our endless blessings bestow an enduring burden. But as Americans, we welcome our responsibility to lead. From Europe to Asia, from the far reaches of Africa to war-torn capitals of the Middle East, we stand for freedom, for justice, for dignity. These are values that have guided our nation since its founding.”

There’s an old English, somewhat vulgar, four-letter word which in my view sums up that statement. CRAP. (The dictionary definition of it is “excrement, rubbish, dirt, worthless nonsense.”)

An informed visitor from another planet who listened to Obama would scratch his head and say, “Has the president not heard about the occupied and oppressed Palestinians and their long struggle for freedom, justice and dignity?”

The Christian family refusing to give up its Bethlehem hill farm bulldozed by Israel

On his farm outside Bethlehem, Daher Nassar is picking apples from the ruins of the orchard he planted at least eight years ago. The fruit is scattered across ground freshly opened and imprinted with the tracks of a bulldozer. At the field’s edge, branches reach out from inside a mound of earth, the bark stripped and mangled, unripe almonds still clinging to the trees.

On 19 May a Palestinian shepherd from the village of Nahalin was out at first light and saw the bulldozer at work in the field, guarded by Israeli soldiers. By the time Nassar arrived the whole orchard – the best part of a decade’s work – was gone. His English is far from fluent, but there’s no mistaking the pain in his voice: “Why you broke the trees?”

A spokesperson for the Israeli military authorities in the West Bank said the trees were planted illegally on state land.

‘ISIL Is Not Islamic’? Is Obama Completely Insane?

During his nationally televised speech on Wednesday night, Barack Obama told the entire nation that “ISIL is not Islamic”. Well, then what in the world are they? Atheists? And what is Obama going to try to convince us of next? That the Pope is not Catholic? Of all of Obama’s lies (and there certainly have been a lot of them), this one might take the cake. Of course ISIL is Islamic. That is why they call themselves The Islamic State. The stated goal of these religious radicals is to establish an Islamic caliphate which will be governed by a single supreme Islamic leader known as a khalifah. The law in the caliphate will be Islamic sharia law, and anyone not willing to convert to the form of Islam practiced by the Islamic State will be either killed or persecuted intensely. But because of Barack Obama’s extreme political correctness, he simply cannot admit that the Islamic State has anything to do with Islam.

Seeing Through The ISIS Script...No Cigar!

By L. Reichard White

September 11, 2014

Maybe it started with The Wizard of Oz, but it’s gotten completely out of hand. First there was al-Qaeda (“The Base“), apparently a name invented by the U.S. Justice Department to link a series of attacks to Osama bin Laden. But this newest ISIS franchise, conveniently billed as “too violent for al-Qaeda,” has taken off and its popularity makes “Breaking Bad” look like a Jr. High School class play. In rural Wyoming.

But the script needs some patching.

Washington Menaces America With Its ISIS Creation

Tony Cartalucci

The Washington Times in an article titled, “Intel believes 300 Americans fighting with Islamic State, posing threat to U.S.,” makes the incredible claim that:

"The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials."

"Officials say concern is widespread in Washington that radicalized foreign fighters could return to the homeland and commit terrorist attacks with skills acquired overseas, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the information. Those concerns were heightened by the disclosure Tuesday that a California man was killed fighting alongside militants with the group, also known as ISIS."

BBC playing dirty tricks against Iran by spreading disinformation

“Ayatollah Khamenei has sanctioned General Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force - an elite overseas unit of the Revolutionary Guards - to work with forces fighting IS, including the US,” according to the BBC, quoting “sources in Tehran.”

The BBC claim comes as US President Barack Obama this week expanded American air strikes against the terror network in western Iraq, which is also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL).

Iran has consistently condemned ISIL for its indiscriminate brutality towards Muslims and Christians in Syria and Iraq, whom the group targets as "infidels" in its twisted Saudi-backed Wahhabi ideology. Videos showing ISIL militants massacring captives in mass graves and beheading individuals have shocked and sickened the world. Iran views the terror group as a dangerous development in the region, which is stoking sectarian conflict and destabilizing countries.

However, the Iranian authorities have flatly rejected the BBC's claims that the Islamic Republic is seeking to collaborate with Washington in order to defeat the ISIL.

Obama's Speech to America: Stop ISIL by Funding ISIL

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

As many had expected as soon as the announcement was made that Barack Obama would make a speech on September 10 regarding his strategy against ISIS, the U.S. President has confirmed that he reserves the right to engage in airstrikes inside Syria.

The President outlined a four-point strategy that would, according to him, "degrade and ultimately destroy" ISIS. Obama stated that, "if left unchecked, ISIS could prove a threat across the middle eastern region" and possibly the American "homeland." Obama warned that ISIS terrorists originating from the United States and Europe could return home and engage in terrorist attacks on both American and European soil.

The President also announced his desire to create a "broad coalition" to "roll back the terrorist threat."...

The Roots of ISIS

As the United States and NATO gear up for the second attempt at drumming up popular support for airstrikes against Syria, the narrative of ISIS and justifications for invading the sovereign nation have become so convoluted in the mainstream media that a casual observer can scarcely keep track of the narrative spun by Western governments and their media mouthpieces. Unfortunately, that is part of the plan – to keep the general public so confused as to what is actually occurring overseas that, eventually, with their opinions formed for them on social media, television shows, and interspersed nightly news clips, they rely on the media to do their thinking for them. Their opinions are not their own but those of the world oligarchy.

Once Again Obama Shows That He Is Clueless About What Is Going On In The Middle East

Why would Barack Obama want to give hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons to groups inside Syria that are selling weapons to ISIS and regularly fighting alongside them? Is he really that clueless about what is going on in the Middle East? The FSA and other groups of "moderate" fighters inside Syria do notconsider ISIS to be an enemy. Rather, they consider ISIS to be an important ally in the struggle to overthrow the Syrian government. In fact, many "moderate" units have actually joined ISIS in recent months. If Obama gives more weapons to the "moderate" fighters in Syria, it is inevitable that a lot of them will end up in the hands of ISIS. In a previous article, I already discussed how ISIS is talking over vast stretches of Syria and Iraq using mostly American weapons. If the Obama administration goes ahead with this plan to arm "moderates" in Syria, it is just going to make ISIS even stronger.

Obama’s Islamic State strategy relies on allies with own reputations for brutality

Whatever strategy President Barack Obama lays out Wednesday to combat the Islamic State is sure to rely heavily on buy-in from rival Muslim powerhouses Saudi Arabia and Iran – one a Sunni Muslim kingdom with its own grim penchant for beheadings and the other a Shiite pariah state that’s executed thousands of dissidents.

Though hardly ideal, these partners are vital to any serious effort to weaken the Islamic State, according to foreign policy analysts who are tracking the U.S. response. Depending on hardline Islamist theocracies to help in the fight against an even more militant, self-proclaimed caliphate is among the many uncomfortable scenarios Obama must accept if he’s serious about wading deeper into Middle Eastern wars.

To be more precise, the real problem is a strong, independent Russia under the leadership of President Putin, a Russia that stands up for its national rights, respect for international norms and which is not prepared to simply roll over to placate American hegemonic selfish interests...

The 9/11 Triple Cross

Three major thesis are in competition concerning the culprit of the 9/11 attacks:

1. Islam Job: the official conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, blaming Muslim terrorists in general, and Osama bin Laden in particular;
2. Inside Job: the dominant thesis within the so-called 9/11 Truth movement, which accuses the American government, or a faction within the American Deep State;
3. Mossad Job: the rising alternative thesis within the community of truth seekers, which claim that the masterminds were a Zionist network close to the Israeli Likud.
There are variations on each thesis and middle grounds between them, but three camps can clearly be distinguished: Acknowledging this reality, by renouncing the bipolar vision of an information warfare between official liars and 9/11 truthers, and paying attention to the debate (or absence of the debate) between Inside-jobbers and Mossad-jobbers, is the first step toward a paradigm shift in “9/11ology”.

Salaita speaks publicly for the first time since firing (for his pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel tweets)

In recent statements, Chancellor Wise and the Board of Trustees said that the University Administration found the tone of my tweets “uncivil” and raised questions about my ability to inhabit the University environment. This is a perilous standard that risks eviscerating the principle of academic freedom. My comments were not made in a classroom or on campus; they were made through my personal Twitter account. The University’s policing and judgment of those messages places any faculty member at risk of termination if University administrators deem the tone or content of his or her speech “uncivil” without regard to the forum or medium in which the speech is made. This is a highly subjective and sprawling standard that can be used to attack faculty who espouse unpopular or unconventional ideas.

Even more troubling are the documented revelations that the decision to terminate me is a result of pressure from wealthy donors – individuals who expressly dislike my political views. As the Center for Constitutional Rights and other groups have been tracking, this is part of a nationwide, concerted effort by wealthy and well-organized groups to attack pro-Palestinian students and faculty and silence their speech.

Tony Blair: The War Criminal Middle East “Peace” Envoy

How can a just peace be achieved between the Israelis and the Palestinians? The answer is simply to appoint as peace envoy a war criminal who — like former French President Nicolas Sarkozy — also happens to be an Israeli sayan.

Before qualifying as a fully fledged war criminal, Blair started out as a lawyer whose cosy, potentially corrupt, and now war criminal connection with Israel began in earnest in 1994 when he first met Michael Levy — an encounter that was calculated rather than fortuitous — at a dinner party hosted by Israeli diplomat Gideon Meir who, like Blair was friendly with Eldred Tabachnik, a senior barrister and Queens Council at 11 King’s Bench Walk, the chambers founded by Derry Irvine where Blair had been a junior tenant on its foundation in 1981. Tabachnik was also a former president (1994-2000) of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

American Imperialism and the Rise of Islamic Extremism in Syria and Iraq

While the ostensible target of the expanded war drive in the Middle East is now ISIS, behind the scenes the American ruling class is seeking to utilize the crisis surrounding ISIS to rejuvenate the “war on terror” and prepare action against the Assad government—to finish what it started. Assad has traditionally been a close ally of both Iran and Russia, the latter a target of an escalating war drive set off by the right-wing US and German backed coup in Ukraine.

ISIS is not, as the American government and mainstream media insist, an inexplicable “evil” force or a “cancer.” The success of ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups in Syria and Iraq is very much a product of American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an ongoing fraud, to attempt to sell the American people into endless war in the Middle East.

I, for one, am not buying.

10 Signs That ISIS is a Scripted Psyop

Scripted Oddities Portray ISIS As "James Bond" of Terrorism

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Has the ISIS psyop calmed down a bit? Before it dies out let's examine some incredible ironies and oddities surrounding CIA's ISIS. After all, the ISIS psyop deserves a thorough analysis from every angle, so I thought it appropriate to outline for the sake of humanity. Hopefully, humanity can use the ISIS psyop as a tool for the final or further awakening. It may be wishful thinking, but it is worth exposing every crack and corner of this psyop and let government know that we are not going for it this time...

The real issues in the Salaita case: Palestine, neoliberalism, and the corporate university

Salaita is targeted because he would represent the first voice of Palestinian background on this campus who has a record of substantial and articulate advocacy on this issue. He could have set a precedent and by his presence and voice begun to change the atmosphere on a campus that, other than Francis Boyle (International Law), has lacked a bold and persuasive advocate for Palestinian justice among its faculty, and has lacked scholars who forthrightly address Zionist colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and racism in their work. Salaita represents the return of the repressed and a harbinger of genuine openness, and on this basis he has been further and slanderously repressed.

Three-sentence letter to the ‘NYT’ (about Israel's carnage in Gaza) results in Yale chaplain’s resignation

We’ve covered the backlash against a Yale chaplain for his letter to the New York Times saying that Israel’s “carnage” in Gaza and its footdragging on the peace process were a factor in growing anti-Semitism in Europe. Well, that three-sentence letter to the Times has now produced the resignation of the chaplain, Father Bruce Shipman, from the Episcopal Church at Yale.

It happened three days ago. The statement from the Episcopal Church at Yale refers to “dynamics” between Shipman and his board of governors:

First Palestine, Then You are Next

The Palestinian struggle, both armed and peaceful, against the illegal Israeli occupation and the global colonial Zionist scheme is a legal and honorable struggle. It is not a struggle just for Palestinians; it is a struggle for all humanity. Since its inception by Jewish terrorist organizations 66 years ago, the Israeli state has been a rogue state that had violated all international laws, all humanitarian laws, and had perpetrated terrorist attacks against its foes as well as against its allies.

US Officials: New War on ISIS Will Take Years

Even though US officials still don’t really have an idea of how they will actually defeat ISIS, they do seem to at least agree that wiping the group out in both Iraq and Syria is going to take a very long time.

President Obama had qualified the war as not a question of “weeks” early on, though officials are now saying that it’s going to be more like years, and likely not just a couple of those.

The Pentagon planners are envisioning a “minimum” commitment of 36 months, which in keeping with their usual grossly optimistic estimates, could mean far, far longer.

Israel preparing for ‘very violent’ war against Hezbollah, TV report says

Just 10 days after a ceasefire ended a 50-day Israel-Hamas conflict, the Israeli army is “making plans and training” for “a very violent war” against Hezbollah in south Lebanon, an Israeli TV report said Friday night, without specifying when this war might break out.

The report, for which the army gave Israel’s Channel 2 access to several of its positions along the border with Lebanon, featured an IDF brigade commander warning that such a conflict “will be a whole different story” from the Israel-Hamas conflict in which over 2,000 Gazans (half of them gunmen according to Israel) and 72 Israelis were killed. “We will have to use considerable force” to quickly prevail over the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, “to act more decisively, more drastically,” said Colonel Dan Goldfus, commander of the 769th Hiram Infantry Brigade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel is going to invade Lebanon, and will go right to the Litani River, because they desperately so need the water.

This again underscores the Israeli government's stance that they don't want a true, just, and lasting peace in the region, but territory, and by any means necessary.

‘Property of US Govt’: Islamic State jihadists armed with US military weapons

Islamic State fighters appear to be using captured US military issue arms and weapons supplied to moderate rebels in Syria by Saudi Arabia, according to a report published on Monday.

The study by the London-based small-arms research organisation Conflict Armament Research documented weapons seized by Kurdish forces from militants in Iraq and Syria over a 10-day period in July.

The report said the jihadists disposed of “significant quantities” of US-made small arms including M16 assault rifles and included photos showing the markings “Property of US Govt”.

American-allied nations are secretly helping ISIS to grow - US Colonel Ann Wright

The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 came with many warnings that it would lead to a dire consequences for the whole region. A decade later, and the brutal jihadists from ISIS are dominating the north of the devastated country. Now, the US is again mulling the possibility of sending its army to Iraq once more - but would that actually help solve the issue? From where does the money come for the Islamic State? Is America obliged to save Iraq after what it's done to that nation? We ask these questions to American Colonel and former diplomat Ann Wright on Sophie&Co today.

What's Going In Yemen?

Yemen is witnessing mass demonstrations by supporters of al-Houthi. The country is not far from the chaos in the Arab world and it is one of the 'Arab Spring' countries.

Al-Houthi movement —Houthists prefer to call it 'Ansarullah' movement— is named after its leader Abdulmalek al-Houthi. The movement fought Yemeni regime for many rounds in the last decade. But what is going in Yemen?

In the context of the conflict between the pro-West gulf monarchies and Iran, the two sides are moving their loyal puppets.
Saudi Arabia clearly support 'Sunni' opposition in Iraq as well as Syrian opposition's militias (such as the Islamic Front). Meanwhile, it is the Iranian turn to move the chess piece on the southern Saudi borders (i.e, in Yemen).
Yemen's Houthi movement (i.e, Ansarullah) is calling for overthrowing current Yemeni government.

The Grand Saudi Reversal

by Thierry Meyssan

While for the past 35 years Saudi Arabia has supported all the jihadist movements to the most extremist, Riyadh seems suddenly to have changed policy. Threatened in its very existence by a possible attack from the Islamic Emirate, Saudi Arabia has given the signal for the destruction of the organization.

Obama strategy to beat Islamic State likely to draw U.S. into years of conflict

The U.S.-led international strategy to combat the Islamic State that President Barack Obama sketched out Friday is likely to require years of thorny diplomacy and deeper U.S. military involvement in conflicts that he’s struggled to avoid.

Obama’s remarks at the end of a NATO summit in Wales offered the administration’s most in-depth explanation to date of how it plans to fight the Islamic State, the transnational extremist group that has seized control of an area as large as Jordan straddling the dividing line between Syria and Iraq.

The nascent strategy calls for working with European and Arab allies to confront the group not only in Iraq, where the U.S. is conducting airstrikes to assist government-aligned fighters, but also in Syria, where the United States has failed to fulfill its years-long promise to help build a moderate rebel force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me tell you precisely what this drive is to "sell" the American people on a new invasion of Iraq, and Syria, and possibly, Libya.

This is not about "protecting American freedom and democracy" (what paltry bits of it are left to the American people, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA).

This is about making sure that all the oil developed and sold in the region is only sold to those entities the US wishes to sell to, and only in the US dollar.

Although the guy got a lot wrong, Carl Marx was absolutely correct, when he stated, "All wars are economic". War is about obtaining geopolitical objective byS other means than negotiations.

The innumerable deaths, the maimings and tearing apart of innocent families, and the destruction of homes, schools, and infrastructure, means nothing, and have utterly no moral repercussions, to those who believe that war is the only way to ensure the economic viability of the US dollar.

IF the US government had spent just a fraction of the money they have spent on the wars toward a sustainable renewable energy which can drive a tank, or power a plane, none of these catastophes like the war in Iraq; the war in Afghanistan; and the war against Libya, would never, ever have become necessary.

So what is the US government's answer to these absolutely, catastrophically failed wars?!?

MORE WAR.

So, again, the price in blood and money of these endeavors, is all about private profit for US and multinational corporations.

That is why countless of our finest military personnel will wind up dead, or maimed for life: private corporate profit, period, end of discussion.

And of course, bankers love war, because all sides come to them for the loans at interest,with which to support these wars.

We are headed toward absolute disaster, by continuing these failed national policies.

But of course, the people creating these wars do not care: they have their bunkers, and it won't be their kids, getting killed and maimed for life.

And even if the draft comes back in this country (and remember: Charlie Rangel, last year, introduced draft legislation which will be coming for BOTH your sons and your daughters), the elite always, somehow, find a way out for their kids.

House Leader: Congress Could Force War on ISIS to Escalate

Hawkishness toward ISIS has become fashionable these days among US politicians, and even the ever-escalating war against ISIS in Iraq, and talks of expanding it into Syria, aren’t nearly enough for many Congressmen’s tastes.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R – CA), the House Majority Leader, pushed for a bigger war, and sooner, insisting in a new interview that “if the president won’t act, I think we have to take some action to move forward.”

Four different House committees are expected to hold hearings next week on ISIS, and Rep. McCarthy insisted that they needed to come up with a “concise foreign policy doctrine” for the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Representative McCarthy: it is easy for those of you in the bowels of power to talk about going to war, when it is not your sons or daughters who will be killed, or maimed for life, in a military action which is only, and solely, about the protection of private, corporate profit.

But this time, sir, Americans will not be so willing to ride the war train, because they know that the ultimate objective is NOT about preserving our "freedoms" or "democracy", but about whose currency is the reserve currency of the world.

The last 3 military misadventures undertaken by the US military have concluded in catastrophic disaster; Iraq is a mess; Libya is about to be overtaken by a caliphate; and Afghanistan is a brutal and bloody war of attrition, 13 years on, in which the US and NATO forces are losing spectacularly.

It appears that the American political class are pathologically incapable of resolving their differences with countries around the world, other than overthrowing regimes, and replacing them with tin-pot dictators, which ultimately get overthrown by the people of those countries, so losing those countries yet again.

Alice Cooper covers the Bob Dylan song “Isis”

You can fool some of the people,but you can't fool Alice Cooper!

I was “captured” by “ISIS” on the fifth day of May
Knew my head wouldn’t stay on my neck very long
So I gave them the slip and I rode straight away
For the Occupied country where I could not go wrong

I came to a studio of darkness and light
With a fake desert backdrop and a fake Arab town
There were Hollywood props on my left and my right
And a fake chopping block where I laid my head down

A mensch in the corner drew his ersatz sword
I knew right away it was not ordinary
He said “Should we chop your head off now or later?”
I said “For real?”. He said “That ain’t necessary”

UK, US and Israel spy on Middle-East from Cyprus

Telecommunications in Turkey and the entire Middle-East are being monitored from listening stations based on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus, a senior Turkish Cypriot lawyer has claimed.

Former Union of Bars head for Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) capital Lefkosa (Nicosia) and writer, Baris Mamali, warned that the island of Cyprus could be dragged into the wars in the Middle-East due to it being a listening post for a number of Western intelligence agencies including the CIA, the NSA, Mossad and MI6.

In his column published on Thursday by OdaTV, Mamali claimed that the British military air base in Akrotiri was not only hosting four fleets of war planes but also a large electronic intelligence facility in addition to specially designated areas for the storage of nuclear weapons. Mamali further claimed that a second British base in Dhekelia contains two intelligence stations in which intercepted information is deciphered and analyzed by a team of experts.

Putin's Pal Is Pissed Muslim Chechen Leader Vows to Crush ISIS After Threat Against Russia

Published on Sep 3, 2014

The latest recipients of an Islamic State threat are responding in kind, with Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov vowing that "these bastards" will be "destroyed."

Kadyrov, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, went on an Instagram rant after Islamic State posted a video threatening Putin over his support for Syria's Bashar al-Assad and vowing to liberate Chechnya. The Muslim strongman, who has fought Islamic militants in his backyard for years, seemed to take special umbrage at a threat aimed at his patron in Moscow.

ISIS to the Rescue

Amid NATO's failures in Ukraine, America's terrorist mercenaries threaten war with Russia.

Tony Cartalucci

As the crisis in Ukraine continues to fare poorly for Kiev and its NATO-backers, an "unlikely" ally has emerged - ISIS. Threatening to "liberate" Chechnya and the Caucasus, ISIS would essentially be handing over regions of Russia to its Western and Persian Gulf sponsors. While one would imagine the West would attempt to at least appear to stand in solidarity with Russia in the face of this recent threat, it has instead used the threat to stir fear among Russians, and as leverage against Moscow...

Salaita firing turns into a ‘catastrophe’ for University of Illinois

The Steven Salaita case at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign keeps boiling away on the stove. The university surely hoped that it would die away after Chancellor Phyllis Wise fired the Palestinian-American scholar in early August over angry tweets Salaita had posted about Israel’s massacres in Gaza, just nine months after he had agreed to come to Illinois to teach American Indian studies. But the case isn’t going away, it’s just getting more attention. It is now, as Columbia law professor Katherine Franke says below, an “unfolding catastrophe” for the school.

Emails that Wise exchanged on the case have been published, and though heavily redacted, show that she was more concerned about a donor who is on the board of the Jewish Federation and Hillel, two Zionist organizations, than she was about the views of academic officials who report to her. (That’s neoliberal Zionism in a nutshell).

Sadly – some of these kids may be learning their spoilt ways from their family members, who still sit in power as autocratic monarchs while democracy struggles to gain a foothold in one of the wealthiest regions on earth.

Perpetual war, indefinite detention, and torture: The U.S. and Israel’s shared values

The United States and Israel have "shared values" but not when it comes to upholding democracy and the rule of law. Their shared values are perpetual war, torture, indefinite detention, and military courts. Guantanamo is a perfect example of this. Both states have been in a state of perpetual war for quite some time with Israel against the Palestinians since its founding in 1948 while the U.S. can trace back its war to its founding in 1776 and the colonization of Native American lands. Today's global war on terror is the latest chapter in that saga. Under perpetual war, the United States and Israel can justify a litany of draconian policies, such as indefinite detention, torture, and extrajudicial killing.

"THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy" by Graeme MacQueen

Clarity Press announces the release of a new book on the 2001 anthrax attacks.

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy
By Graeme MacQueen

This book presents evidence to support the following points:
(a) The anthrax attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators, not by a “lone wolf.” The attacks were, therefore, the result of a conspiracy—by definition a plan by two or more people, made in secret and resulting in an immoral or illegal act.

(b) The group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in part, of insiders deep within the US state apparatus.

(c) These insiders were the same people who planned the 9/11 attacks

(d) The anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a seizure of power by the executive branch of government through intimidation of Congress and US civil society. They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence to and support for the redefinition of US foreign policy, replacing the Cold War with a new and aggressive global conflict framework, the Global War on Terror.

“But is it Good for the Jews?” An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

Can we assume that Zionism and Israel are good for the Jews? The answer is no, we cannot. Zionism failed the Jews by insisting on an Israel for one group alone. That insistence has inevitably led to racism, discrimination and ethnic cleansing. These are not practices that have characterized modern Jewry and so it is simply wrong to equate Zionism with Judaism and insist that Israel stands in for the world’s Jews. The more Jews who understand this, and begin to publicly distance themselves from both Zionism and Israel, the better, for they can safely assume both are bad for the Jews.

ISIS is America’s New Terror Brand

Endless Propaganda Fuels “War on Terror”

James F. Tracy
Activist Post

In the wake of World War I, erstwhile propagandist and political scientist Harold Lasswell famously defined propaganda as “the management of collective attitudes” and the “control over opinion” through “the manipulation of significant symbols.”[1]

The extent to which this tradition is enthusiastically upheld in the West and the United States in particular is remarkable. The American public is consistently propagandized by its government and corporate news media on the most vital of contemporary issues and events. Deception on such a scale would be of little consequence if the US was not the most powerful economic and military force on earth...

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTION The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy (new book out)

THE 2001 ANTHRAX DECEPTIONThe Case for a Domestic Conspiracy
By Graeme MacQueen

Synopsis extract:

In 2008 the Bureau named Dr. Bruce Ivins of the US Army Medical Institute of Infectious Disease as the “anthrax killer.” Although the FBI remains committed to the Ivins hypothesis, the case has been disintegrating for the last three years. Currently, it is justly held in contempt not merely by scientists who worked with Ivins but by many journalists as well as several US senators.

But this raises the question: if Ivins did not commit this crime, who did? This book presents evidence to support the following points:
(a) The anthrax attacks were carried out by a group of perpetrators, not by a “lone wolf.” The attacks were, therefore, the result of a conspiracy — by definition a plan by two or more people, made in secret and resulting in an immoral or illegal act.

(b) The group that carried out this crime consisted, in whole or in part, of insiders deep within the US state apparatus.

(c) These insiders were the same people who planned the 9/11 attacks

(d) The anthrax attacks were meant to facilitate a seizure of power by the executive branch of government through intimidation of Congress and US civil society. They were also designed to achieve public acquiescence to and support for the redefinition of US foreign policy, replacing the Cold War with a new and aggressive global conflict framework, the Global Waron Terror.

As we approach the 13th anniversary of the events that changed the world, forever, if seems appropriate to list some examples of what the mainstream media—with all of its freedoms intact, at least in those days—totally ignored or dismissed as being wild conspiracy theories. I’m talking about the most obvious anomalies regarding the attacks of September 11th, 2001. Even after the 9/11 Commission Report was released, how many so-called journalists questioned these anomalies? So I am going to redress that, in retrospect, with a short sample of some of the headlines that never saw the light of day, but should have.

Considering the enormity of the events and the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu went on record on the day, stating: “It’s very good. Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy....” Why was this headline not seen anywhere?

The 9/11 Triple Cross

Three major thesis are in competition concerning the culprit of the 9/11 attacks:

1. Islam Job: the official conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, blaming Muslim terrorists in general, and Osama bin Laden in particular;
2. Inside Job: the dominant thesis within the so-called 9/11 Truth movement, which accuses the American government, or a faction within the American Deep State;
3. Mossad Job: the rising alternative thesis within the community of truth seekers, which claim that the masterminds were a Zionist network close to the Israeli Likud.

The Covert Origins of ISIS

The Islamic militant group ISIS, formerly known as Al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recently rebranded as the so called Islamic State, is the stuff of nightmares. They are ruthless, fanatical, killers, on a mission, and that mission is to wipe out anyone and everyone, from any religion or belief system and to impose Shari'ah law. The mass executions, beheadings and even crucifixions that they are committing as they work towards this goal are flaunted like badges of pride, video taped and uploaded for the whole world to see. This is the new face of evil.

Bishop Richard Williamson on "the on-going madness in Gaza"

In his his latest column 'Eleison Comments,' Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson states, in part, "if the Israelites try to be that superior nation on their own terms, disobeying God, then a multitude of curses will come upon them, and they will be scorned, hated and trampled upon by all other nations... As Plato said (Georgias), it is better to suffer than to commit an injustice, and therefore in spiritual reality, the Israelis are more to be pitied than the Palestinians. Patience. We "all have sinned and do need the glory of God” (Rom. III, 22–23)."

How the US Enables Israel

Following the Israeli attack on Egypt in 1967, the US has been the primary supplier of advanced weaponary to Israel. However, by continuing to arm Israel today, the US violates its own laws, in particular, the Arms Export Control Act (Public Law 90-829), that prohibits its weapons being used against civilians.

Israel, a nation of hate

Racism in Israel is not an exception, but the social norm. This was validated in a recent poll conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute, which showed that 95 per cent of Israeli Jews were fully behind their army’s genocidal campaign in Gaza.

Anthony Lawson - "The Crocodile Tears of the Press Corps Crying: Freedom!"

It’s a crocodile-tear fest of so-called journalists and their lawyers, and it nearly made me sick when I first watched it. To start with, how can the press [the term should be taken to mean the media in general] be free if it is over 90% owned and controlled by interests that have an agenda which almost certainly has nothing to do with freedom of the kind of information that the public should be given?

It’s an issue of Need to know:
We’ll give the people only the information that
we think they Need to know.

What we really need to know is:
When are you press people going to get honest?

BEX Alert!!! - "ISIL laptop shows plans for biological attacks in Syria"

Syrian opposition sources say a laptop seized from ISIL Takfiri terrorists contains a series of secret plans including hints at biological attacks.

The laptop was recovered during a raid on an ISIL hideout in Idlib Province close to Turkey's border.

A commander in a rival anti-government group in Syria has told American magazine, Foreign Policy, that the computer belonging to a Tunisian militant, contained thousands of secret files in French, English, and Arabic.

It also contained lessons on disguise, bomb-making, stealing cars as well as ideological justifications for militancy, the commander added.

Western media reports say one of the documents included instructions on how to develop biological weapons and how to weaponize the bubonic plague from infected animals.

The laptop also includes a 26-page fatwa (decree) by ISIL terrorist leaders on the use of weapons of mass destruction.

Why Does ISIS Fit In So Perfectly With The PNAC Plan?

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Here are some simple burning questions whose answers can only be described by the globalist plans for a new world order. These questions strike at the root of the question all of humanity is asking: Who is ISIS? Western media and pundits would have us believe that ISIS just popped out of the ground fully formed...

Miko Peled # Zionism Must Go #Free Palestine, End the Occupation

Miko Peled talks of Changing the Conversation on Palestine.

"Connecting Gaza back to Palestine"

He began by saying: “To understand what happened in Gaza recently, you must go back to Balfour and to 1947”

“It is impossible to talk about Gaza, without talking about 1947 and 1948 and so on…”

He notes an attempt is being made to isolate Gaza from the rest of Palestine. Which is what Israel, the U.S. and the Europeans have been doing. By isolating it, they are stopping the solution.

Palestine is not Gaza and the West Bank. Palestine is the Galilee, it is Jerusalem, it is Jaffa and it is Haifa, it is the entire country, he notes.

The Peace talks and all these so-called efforts is an attempt to bring the Palestinians to surrender. But, the Palestinians will not surrender. And Hamas will not go away.

Hamas is an resistance organization. It was established as a result of a brutal Oppression and Occupation.

THE ASSEMBLY OF A NEW WORLD ORDER: THE CONCEPT THAT HAS UNDERPINNED THE MODERN GEOPOLITICAL ERA IS IN CRISIS

Libya is in civil war, fundamentalist armies are building a self-declared caliphate across Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan's young democracy is on the verge of paralysis. To these troubles are added a resurgence of tensions with Russia and a relationship with China divided between pledges of cooperation and public recrimination. The concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.

Chile files lawsuit against Netanyahu for ‘crimes against humanity’

No one should be able to commit crimes against humanity without believing that they could be judged for them, he argued. “Thats why I find myself invoking the principle of universal jurisdiction in regard with these crimes” — Chilean congressman Hugo Gutierrez.

On the 22nd August 2014, Chilean congressman Hugo Gutierrez filed a lawsuit against Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, for “crimes against humanity”. He was accompanied by the Palestinian Federation of Chile.

The congressman noted that various international organizations, such as the United Nations, have already described the Israeli attacks as “crimes against humanity”.

Mainstream media steps up anti-Russia propaganda on Ukraine

With regard to the goings-on in Ukraine, I have heard quite a few European and American voices piping in, saying that, yes, Washington and Kiev are fabricating an entirely fictional version of events for propaganda purposes, but then so are the Russians. They appear to assume that if their corporate media is infested with mendacious, incompetent buffoons who are only too happy to repeat the party line, then the Russians must be same or worse.

The reality is quite different. While there is a virtual news blackout with regard to Ukraine in the West, with little being shown beyond pictures of talking heads in Washington and Kiev, the media coverage in Russia is relentless, with daily bulletins describing troop movements, up-to-date maps of the conflict zones, and lots of eye-witness testimony, commentary and analysis.

BEX Alert!!! - "Recipe for hate: Al-Qaeda publish car bomb ‘shopping list’ and suggest UK targets"

Al-Qaeda this week published an online magazine featuring instructions on how to build homemade car bombs and an appeal to Muslims to attack UK and US targets in the vein of the Boston bombers.

The English-language magazine, entitled ‘Palestine: Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem’, urges Muslims in the West to assemble pressure cooker bombs like those used to attack the Boston marathon last year.

In a list of “examples of targets,” the magazine suggests attacks on the UK’s Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, MI5’s Thames House and Marks & Spencer department stores during Friday prayers, so as to avoid harming Muslims.

The list features US targets including Times Square, casinos in Las Vegas, Georgia Military College, the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and the General Atomics headquarters in San Diego. It also suggests attacks on Israeli, British and American company headquarters and holiday destinations abroad, oil tankers and busy train stations.

China: America has lost face and is sick

Only hours ago the US government announced that a Chinese fighter jet had intercepted an American military patrol plane over international waters east of China’s Hainan Island.

A Pentagon spokesman called China’s actions “unsafe and unprofessional”, and blasted such unprovoked aggression.

Needless to say, the Chinese government has a slightly different story.
