Hegel on Israel

Chuck Hagel has sought to distance the United States from Israel, blame Israel for Palestinian terrorism, pressure Israel to surrender territory and retreat to indefensible borders, and has consistently attempted to increase pressure on Israel and reduce it on Israel’s foes.

New bill passed: Did this just happen in the Land of the Free? Yes, it did.

snip: And just last week, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill that effectively kicks the scientists out of the EPA’s Scientific Advisory Board, and makes room for industry insiders.

What’s curious is that this bill specifically allows for industry representatives to serve on the advisory board even when they have a direct conflict of interest with the board’s advisory activities.

This makes it yet even easier for a handful of big companies to influence public policy and force everyone else to do their bidding.

By themselves, companies would never be able to set policy. But when you put them in bed with government, they can do so at the point of a gun.

Anchors negotiated in secret with Darren Wilson

Matt Lauer, George Stephanopoulos, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon are among the television personalities who've met with Ferguson, Missouri, Police Officer Darren Wilson, Brian Stelter reports. There is some potential money for subjects of these bidding wars, Jim Moret explains -- in licensing photos. But mostly it's about comfort and timing. (CNN) | "When 'off the record' is used to protect not only what’s said in a particular meeting, but also the meeting itself, it becomes a tool not so much for journalists but for the sources seeking to own them."

Biden in Kiev on US Regime-Change Victory Tour

Russia this week condemned the dangerous escalation of US military involvement in Ukraine. Moscow’s foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said the arms announcement «broke all agreements» and that it would further destabilize the country and make a political resolution of the conflict less likely.

The next US planes to follow Biden’s will be loaded with weapons and other non-lethal munitions, as earlier this week Washington announced for the first time that it is to start supplying the Kiev regime with military hardware. Those weapons are to include anti-tank and air defence systems, sniper rifles and machine-guns.

Will the Iran Deal-Wreckers Prevail?

Iran appears ready to sign an agreement tightly constraining its nuclear program in exchange for some sanctions relief, but neocons and other U.S. hardliners appear determined to wreck the deal, which could make Mideast tensions even worse, writes ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar

As of this writing the greatest chance of wrecking it appears to involve not what is going on at the negotiating tables in Europe but instead what the U.S. Congress may do back in Washington to sabotage the work of the diplomats. The energy for the Congressional wrecking ball comes, as it always has, from three sources.

‘International law is being applied highly selectively, when it comes to Iran’

RT talks to U.S. foreign policy analyst Soraya Ulrich

Soraya Ulrich is not optimistic that a deal would be reached before the deadline. She raises the point that this is not just about Iran, this is a fight about upholding international laws and international treaties, which are being violated by the United States. She notes that Iran has never violated the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty), yet it is being accused of doing so. If we succumb to the violation by one party i.e United States and its allies in this case, then international laws and international treaties will loose all meaning and other countries will fall prey to such lawlessness.

Top US and Iranian diplomats have decided to stay in Vienna to continue tense negotiations on the nuclear issue until a consensus suitable to both states is reached.

World powers are trying to agree on limits for Iran’s uranium enrichment, and the sanctions imposed on the country.

Moment of Truth — Iran and Obama

President Obama cannot mollify those critics inside as well as outside his administration who want unconditional surrender from the IRI (Islamic Republic of Iran)and still expect to get an agreement. Humiliation is a dangerous and delicate business. Especially so when the party whom you intend to humiliate is a proud people and its leaders willful.

A recommendation: Sign the nuclear accord with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Announce it with great fanfare. Declare that this opens a new era in relations between the two countries and holds out the prospect for achieving peace and stability across the region. By acting in this way, the United States would redraw the diplomatic map of the Middle East in ways that open opportunities for resolution of its internecine conflicts and for the establishment of a measure of stability.

All-Out War in Ukraine: NATO’s ‘Final Offensive’

Is Poroshenko’s forthcoming blitz against the people of southeast Ukraine designed to provoke a Russian response – to the humanitarian crisis? Will Russia confront the NATO-directed Kiev offensive and risk a total break with the West?

US Never Intended to Defeat ISIS

‘A torrent of “foiled” terror plots have recently dominated headlines across the Western World. In Rochester New York, the FBI netted a man they claimed was plotting a shooting spree targeting US service members. In Australia, over 800 security agents swooped in on 15 ISIS suspects whom the Australian government claimed were plotting to randomly behead a member of the public. In the UK, 4 suspects allegedly linked to ISIS were arrested before carrying out a plot Scotland Yards claims was aimed at the Queen of England herself.

UN resolution on Iran mockery of justice

The UN consciously or unconsciously plays into the hands of the pro-Israeli pressure groups in Canada and only puts on an ugly show of duplicity in imposing a ruling against the Islamic Republic.

The farce becomes more markedly absurd when you consider the plethora of human rights abuses going unpunished in the world with the UN laying a lid of ignorance on these blatant violations.

Iran has strongly lambasted the UN resolution, saying that “the UN’s legal mechanisms have turned into a tool in the hands of the West.”

The irony of the resolution is that the measure was initially drafted by Canada which has itself a disgracing history of human rights abuse against the aborigines in the country. Further to that, Ottawa has constantly and vehemently thrown its full-throated support behind Tel Aviv in its inconceivably ruthless crimes against the people of Palestine.

Speaking at a panel discussion at Netanya College last week, Arad Nir, the company’s foreign news editor, said the news channel did not comply with the government’s request, instead decided to show what its viewers demanded.

Network News' Shameful Decision To Snub Obama's Immigration Address

A decade later the rules seem to have shifted. All four networks have announced they won't carry President Obama's address to the nation tonight about his long awaited plan to take executive action to deal with the pressing issue of immigration reform. (Two Spanish language networks, Univision and Telemundo, will carry the address live in primetime.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don;t think the networks made this call. Obama knows the Hispanics will love his announcement while the legal American citizens (including Legal immigrants) not to mention Constitutionalists will be appalled! Then tomorrow the Grand Jury cuts Darren Wilson loose and by the time the riots are over most Americans will have forgotten about Obama's transition to dictator.

The West's Ignorance of Ukraine Atrocities is an Outrage

For somebody like me who vividly remembers the loud and indignant protests of western human rights NGOs, media and governments over human rights violations in Chechnia, Bosnia or Kosovo (including plenty of completely fictional ones!), it is amazing to see how "for some mysterious reasons" the Ukrainian atrocities seem to go unnoticed in the West.

The very same West who is absolutely outraged about the arrest of Pussy Riot activist and who seems to seriously believe that organizing a "gay pride parade' in Moscow is a human right is apparently totally indifferent to the gang rape of 12-14 year old girls.

What does this say about the West, it's values, it's leaders, media and people?

Europe Veering From US Abyss Over Russia?

One hopes that Europe is beginning to part ways with the US direction on Russia – a direction that is leading to an abyss.

It’s long overdue but better late than never that Europe might just be back-pedaling on America’s aggressive agenda towards Russia. The business-like visit to Moscow this week by Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier suggests that Europe can come to its senses to seek a diplomatic resolution of the escalating tensions over the Ukraine crisis – tensions that could spark a wider continental war, or worse.

Steinmeier met with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in which the pair stressed the need to find a political end to the violence in Ukraine.

Only one of those guests, The Nation’s editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, would count as “anti-war.” The situation barely improves if you add in cable talk shows: Out of a total 205 guests discussing military options in the same period, just six opposed intervention, versus 125 who spoke in favor of it.

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler wonders why it’s so cold if global warming exists. Here’s the answer.

There are two options for what Hartzler, a Republican who represents Missouri's 4th District, hopes to accomplish here. The first is that she's making a joke about a serious environmental issue that has scientists around the world concerned about how mankind will fare under warmer conditions. We assume a member of Congress wouldn't make such a joke.

So let's assume Hartzler is actually wondering what happened to climate change (which is what conservative message-man Frank Luntz recommended Republicans call the effect). And for that we have an answer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the Washington Post, trying to slap down a Congresswoman for asking a prudent question, not by answering the question but by ridiculing her.

However, Congresswoman Hartzler is making a valid point. Back in March 20,2000 the UK Independent ran the banner headline "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." They were hardly alone in the proclamation that global warming meant snow and ice free winters.

We are now heading into yet another brutal winter and everyone who hitched their reputation to the human-caused global warming hoax (and its call for a carbon tax) are trying to save their reputations with ever-more fantastic reasons why we should ignore the evidence before our eyes and trust the pretty graphs and charts being wagged in front of us. The "explanations" for why we are seeing ever-colder winters in an age of human-caused global warming range from "The heat is hiding in the deep ocean" to "global warming CAUSES colder weather!"

Rest assured the defenders of the revealed dogma have plenty of impressive looking numbers to throw at you. On May 4th, 2014, a record high temperature was reported in Wichita, Kansas. What they did not mention was the temperature was recorded in the middle of the airport, surrounded by aircraft burning tons of kerosene. Another embarrassment we should all keep in mind is NOAA-16, a satellite sent up to prove the world was getting warmer, and indeed the data it provided did show higher temperatures ... until NOAA was forced to admit the satellite was defective and erased the data from their serves (which hasn't stopped the Carbonazis from continuing to cite that data as proof the world is warming).

Propaganda? What Propaganda?

snip: I believe it important to understand how western media beat the drum of war on behalf of George W. Bush. The echo chamber demonstrated it could be counted on to back acts of aggression around the world with impunity. How many people in media lost their jobs when lying about Bush’s Wars (or Obama’s war for that matter)? We are told to “get over Iraq.” But there is a strong sense today that western media lied to their audiences.

Then there is the great financial crisis of 2008-09. The bulk of western media is corporate media. How many bankers from Wall Street went to jail? There has been some very good investigative journalism on the subject, but the mainstream is shy to pursue the story, telling us “to get over it.” Today there is a strong sense there is ‘state socialism’ to bail out the bankers and ‘capitalist austerity’ for the rest of us. The mainstream’s echo chamber prefers to dwell on meaningless “first world problems” like pouring buckets of ice water over our heads or the condition of Kim Kardashian's butt. In the meantime, Wall Street and Washington policy makers are never held to account for their past and present actions.

And yet the basic premise is still that vaccines are safe and necessary, and thus the system operates in defense of this, at the expense of public health.

Kassig was an Iraq veteran and former U.S. Army Ranger who later became an “aid worker” in Lebanon and Syria, according to USA Today...

Free And Independent Media & Free Flow Of Information Key In Preventing Terrorism, Experts Proclaim In Annual Report

The 'Global Terrorism Index 2014' released by The Institute for Economics & Peace has pointed out that a free and independent media is a key requirement to maintaining the most important 'pillars of peace' and preventing terrorism. The report stated, in part, "Free flow of information, which captures the extent to which citizens can gain access to information, whether the media is free and independent. Peaceful countries tend to have free and independent media, which disseminate information in a way that leads to greater openness and helps individuals and civil society work together. This leads to better decision-making and rational responses in times of crisis."

We have recently been hearing a lot about information wars, propaganda and bullhorns. The pitch of this kind of belligerent rhetoric has increased sharply since the advent of the western-induced crisis in Ukraine.

The mainstream media’s echo chamber claim about Russian media goes something like this: “Russian media is powerful and effective because it is well-funded propaganda.” Really? Having worked in Russian media for well over a decade, I observe it focussing on foreign audiences in a very different way: it challenges the West’s hegemonic grip on shaping and controlling the global media agenda.

"Illegitimate and corrupt governments," State-Sponsored Violence & "Perceptions Of Criminality" Top Influences In Rise Of Terrorism

The newly released 'Global Terrorism Index 2014' spawned plenty of fear-mongering headlines by the corporate mainstream media, but the extensive report actually includes some very revealing & seldom-mentioned facts about the actual causes & remedies of terrorism. "Lack Of Political Legitimacy" & "Powerful external actors upholding corrupt regimes" were cited as causes of terrorism in the prestigious annual report. Also cited as causes of terrorism were Inequality in power, Repression by foreign occupation or colonial powers, torture, and "state sponsored violence such as extrajudicial killings, political terror scale and poor human rights." To put an end to terrorism, the report explains that "longer term approaches are essential. These longer term priorities include the need to address group grievances, ending gross physical rights abuses by the state and improving access to justice and the rule of law."

Russ Baker Interview: "The 'Double Government' Secret Gets Out", the Bush Dynasty and More

RB: Well, what I found is difficult to sum up in just a few sentences, because the facts are so incredibly disturbing, and run so counter to what we've been told up to this point. There's a fantasy in this country that our politicians, as occasionally criticized as they are, fundamentally are gentlemen and gentlewomen. We treat them like celebrities or royalty. But power accrual and wielding is an ugly business, more akin to other lines of work that are about ruthlessness. Anyway, handicapped by not being able to present my thousand-plus footnotes here, I'll just present a few particulars on the Bush clan:

-Bush 41, HW Bush, was in the secret employ of the intelligence services decades before he was appointed as a supposed newcomer, to the CIA directorship. Among other things, he was part of a group, inside and outside CIA, that felt threatened by JFK and furious at him. He hid the fact that he was in Dallas the day Kennedy was shot. He was a good friend of Lee Oswald's mentor. He was mentioned in FBI documents related to the assassination and to Cuban exiles who were enraged at Kennedy.

-He and his family were, secretly principal sponsors of Richard Nixon's career. But when Nixon tried to buck his handlers, they turned on him. The real story of Watergate is the framing of Nixon by others in the Republican camp.

It’s been approximately two-and-a-half minutes since Kim Kardashian had everybody’s attention, and so the world was treated to something it had never, ever seen before: her naked butt.

Watchers of the Sky Falls in a Pit

The United States is a society incapable of producing a major documentary film opposing the institution of war and explicitly advocating its abolition. If it did so, the major corporate media outlets would not sing such a film's praises.

Yet Watchers of the Sky is beloved by the U.S. corporate media because it opposes genocide, not war. I'm not aware of any opponents of war who don't also oppose genocide. In fact, many oppose the two as a single evil without the stark distinction between them. But the anti-genocide academic nonprofit industrial complex has become dominated by leading advocates for war.

Peskov rejects Putin allegedly leaves G20 summit over Ukraine situation pressure

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov rejected reports that Vladimir Putin is allegedly leaving urgently the ongoing G20 summit over the pressure on him due to the situation in Ukraine.

Several media reported earlier that the Russian leader planned to leave the G20 summit before its end over the pressure exerted on him over the situation around Ukraine.

A GALLERY OF FAKE DEAD BIN LADENS

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP BACK TO THE TOP

As of November 2014, a manufactured controversy is saturating the media regarding claims made by various members of the US SEALS as to who killed Bin Laden in Abbotabad, May 2, 2011. The debate rages primarily between Robert O'Neill and Matt Bissonnette. This is a very clever piece of propaganda to trick everyone into asking "Who shot Bin Laden" and distract from the real question of whether it actually was Osama Bin Laden (who died of natural causes in December 2001) who was killed in that house, then dumped into the ocean before an identification could be made. FOX News is premiering a special on "The Man Who Killed Bin Laden" tonight, trying to cement the official story in the minds of America. Please share this page with all your friends and help expose the hoax!

Obama Slammed for Iran Outreach

American neocons are furious that President Obama reportedly sent a letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei apparently urging concessions on nuclear talks and referencing joint interests in combating Islamic State radicals, but the letter may reflect smart diplomacy, says ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

The bursts of criticism — from those who inveterately oppose any dealing with Iran, and those who inveterately oppose anything Barack Obama is doing, which include some of the same people — of a letter Mr. Obama reportedly sent to the supreme leader of Iran can readily be dismissed for multiple reasons.

China's silky road to glory

If there were any remaining doubts about the unlimited stupidity Western corporate media is capable of dishing out, the highlight of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing has been defined as Russian President Vladimir Putin supposedly "hitting" on Chinese President Xi Jinping's wife - and the subsequent Chinese censoring of the moment when Putin draped a shawl over her shoulders in the cold air where the leaders were assembled. What next? Putin and Xi denounced as a gay couple?

Let's dump the clowns and get down to the serious business.

Just six powerful corporations control almost all the information you see and hear

Thirty years ago, the diversity of the world's news media was broad. In 1983, some 50 companies owned "the media" in the U.S. and the world; obviously, with so many companies vying for listeners, viewers and readers, competition was intense -- not just for audience but for advertisers as well.

Fast forward to 2014: That field of media companies has been winnowed down to just a half-dozen companies: Time Warner, Disney, Murdoch's News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, Viacom (formerly CBS) and General Electric-owned NBC.

In a word, that's pretty scary.

BEX ALERT - Vladimir Putin hates Australia and sees it as an economic threat. And that’s just one reason for sending in the ships

WHY is Russia sending warships towards Australia in a needless act of belligerence?

We can sum that up in two really simple concise phrases. Firstly, Vladimir Putin is pissed off. And secondly, he’s showing off.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was sent to me by a reader in Australia as an example of the non-stop Putin-bashing coming out of the Australian media ahead of the G-20. Already someone is organizing huge anti-Putin protests which will be given full media play even as protests against other world leaders will be hidden. This feels like the last desperate gasp to try to get a war with Russia (and China) underway to prevent the Ruble (and the Yuan) from toppling the dollar as the global reserve and trade currency.

When Henry Kissinger Makes Sense

The American public is faced with an information crisis as the New York Times and other mainstream U.S. media outlets have become little more than propaganda organs on behalf of the neoconservative agenda and particularly the rush into a new Cold War with Russia – so much so that even ex-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has broken ranks.

MSM articles consistently reek of bias – and in some cases make little sense. For instance, Times correspondent David M. Herszenhorn, one of the leading propagandists, wrote an alarmist story on Wednesday about a new Russian “invasion” of Ukraine but curiously he had the alleged Russian tank column heading east toward the Ukrainian city of Donetsk which would be back toward Russia, not westward into Ukraine.

HOW AL GORE BECAME A BILLIONAIRE

He achieved this miracle, according to news reports, through various “green” business deals. Such deals are always proprietary and few details about them ever become public. They usually involve the ancient mercantilist practice of bribing politicians for a special favor or subsidy. The bribe-giver becomes wealthy, and the politicians granting the favor/subsidy have the funds to finance the next campaign. Let’s call it crony environmentalism.

Corruption, cronyism, and socialistic central planning of agricultural markets, hidden by the rhetoric of “green farming,” is what Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley calls “smart growth” policy. Crony environmentalism would be more descriptive. So-called smart growth is a very dumb, and very corrupt idea.??

What the BBC's John Simpson said:

In reality, as Helmandis told the New York Times, ‘the Taliban have never been stronger in the province.’ The UK military are fully aware of this, with The Times noting in January 2014 ‘hard-fought territory in southern Afghanistan will fall to the Taliban after British forces withdraw this year, British commanders and military experts believe.’ The report goes on to note there is evidence Afghan soldiers are already patrolling alongside insurgents and quotes a former Special Air Service commander: ‘I will be very surprised if the future Governor of Helmand… is not very closely connected to those who we call the Taliban.’

This Week In The Movies: Baghdadi Wounded, Will He Return?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In 2014, it is an unfortunate reality that many members of the general public are unable to discern reality from fiction. Constant programming and propaganda from Hollywood entertainment and mainstream news has finally reached the point where the fictional scenarios unfolding in television dramas and movies produced by the culture industry blend with the reality in which the average person lives to such a degree that the general public can scarcely distinguish the two.

Indeed, the entire sequence of world affairs, politics, and human progression has become a fictional narrative. This carefully crafted narrative is unfortunately one that the world’s population eagerly digests and regurgitates upon command. Facts are not facts but scientifically inserted stage props. Rewritten history and false perceptions are the setting while politicians, “leaders,” and celebrities are nothing more than actors in the script...

Germans Abandon Major News Sites in Anger Over Slanted Russia Coverage

PANDEMIC NEWS ORDERED SHUT DOWN BY FEDS AS NYC EBOLA WATCH LIST EXPLODES TO 357 PEOPLE

"At the urging of the Obama Administration, the Associated Press and other news outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed," writes the Gateway Pundit.

Apparently, all the negative Ebola news was causing potential voters to lose faith in government... and hence lose faith in the governing democrats as well.

So Fox News, CNN and all the other mainstream media outlets simply decided to stop reporting on Ebola news. "This story is officially over," said Sean Hannity of Fox News in applauding the work of the Fox Ebola Team.

Meanwhile, Ebola news has all but disappeared across the entire national media even as the pandemic is exploding at a 900% increased rate of infection in Sierra Leone.

When there are no successes to point towards as a reason to be confident in one’s government, the Great Father can be counted on to use fear of a scary enemy to rally the people.

The Great Father knows this and he also knows that it’s best to have a few enemies waiting in the wings to distract the American people. To be sure, certain among the American people (the species Ovis aries americanus) will fall for this every time. Which is why it remains effective and American foreign policy infomercials succeed in selling wars without genuine objectives. In fact, were U.S. foreign policy a product, it would be sold on late-night infomercials along with spray-on “hair”, vegetable slicers, and compilation CDs of 1970s hits. And if you purchased it, you would get a few wars, absolutely free. Let’s have a look at some of the Great Father’s latest products.

The exact opposite is the truth. In addition, the number of officers killed or wounded by civilians is a stat tracked by nearly every law enforcement agency. Civilians killed or wounded by police officers are stats tracked by amateurs, despite the fact that the DoJ has ordered these numbers to be reported annually — an order that has been mostly ignored for the last thirteen years.”

New Bush Book Fun With Numbers: 41-43=45

Tuesday, November 11, is not just Veterans Day.

On that day a most peculiar event will unfold: One former president named George Bush will release his “personal biography” of another president named George Bush—his father.

From the advance notices (flacked by a heavy publicity campaign), we know that this singular two-generation duo plans on telling an inspiring story of a heroic and selfless individual who shaped national and world events. This is clearly part of a larger effort playing out in the media since the last presidential election.

We’ve seen the elder Bush, who served as CIA director before his time in the White House and who ruthlessly attacked his opponent in the 1988 election (the Willie Horton incident), recast in fawning profiles as a loveable fellow who designs wacky socks, jumps out of airplanes on his birthdays and shaves his head in solidarity with a young cancer victim.

Morale sinks at CNN's DC bureau

CNN's Washington bureau is suffering from low morale and high anxiety in the wake of weeks of layoffs and buyouts — with one employee likening the place to the Redskins’ locker room.

"Morale at the CNN Washington Bureau is about as strong as it is inside the Redskins’ locker room — and the management is just as bad," another CNN staffer said.

Russia’s Vulnerability to EU – US Sanctions and Military Encroachments

President Putin has the backing of the vast majority of Russian people; he has the scientific and professional cadre; he has allies in China and among the BRICS; and he has the will and the power to “do the right thing”. The question remains whether Putin will succeed in this historical mission or whether, out of fear and indecision, he will capitulate before the threats of a dangerous and decaying West.

The US-EU sponsored coup in the Ukraine and its conversion from a stable Russian trading partner, to a devastated EU economic client and NATO launch pad, as well as the subsequent economic sanctions against Russia for supporting the Russian ethnic majority in the Donbas region and Crimea, illustrate the dangerous vulnerability of the Russian economy and state. The current effort to increase Russia’s national security and economic viability in the face of these challenges requires a critical analysis of the policies and structures emerging in the post-Soviet era.

Question: What’s the difference between the Zionist lobby in America and the Zionist lobby in Britain?

Answer: In America it gives money to politicians to make them. In Britain it denies them money to break them.

What is Miliband’s crime in the eyes of wealthy British Jews who have been contributing to Labour Party funds?

He condemned Israel’s last war on the Gaza Strip which he described as “wrong and unjustifiable.” He also accused Conservative Prime Minister Cameron of being wrong not to have condemned Israel; and he added that Israel was “losing friends in the international community day by day.” (Which is true).

Discovering Iran — Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

Marcel Proust said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time. This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes. I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian lenses and observed with objective eyes. It was a formidable journey that left me breathless.

It is hard to know where to start a travel log and how to describe a newfound world in a few pages. However, given the obsession with the status of women, it is perhaps appropriate to start with the women in Iran as I perceived them.

As MSNBC’s Ratings Sink, CNN’s Stelter, Dan Rather Debate Future of Liberal TV

Former CBS News anchor and now roaming elder statesmen Dan Rather and former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan debated the future and viability of liberal news in the wake of MSNBC’s sinking ratings on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday morning, with Rather arguing that the left/right divide of news was being replaced an old/young binary, and Ratigan arguing that corporate media was always strong enough to reinvent itself in the face of temporary headwinds.

The corporate media would be doing fine if they had not aligned themselves with the tellers of so many lies, such as Saddam's nukes and human-caused global warming.

Canada’s ‘Remembrance Day’: righteous or rancorous?

With Canada’s annual “Remembrance Day” just around the corner, it would be wise to broach the issue of “remembering” those Canadians who fought and died in the two bloodiest conflicts in world history with some humility and skepticism.

With all things considered, “Remembrance Day” amounts to little more than a glorification of war and an exercise in jingoism and self-aggrandizement. It re-enforces the insulting myth of the “good” and “necessary” wars. It encourages the refusal to recognize the wrongs committed by “our side” in those bloody conflicts. This‘day of reverence’ for our soldiers acts as a mind control mechanism to deceive the public into believing that our government has always acted benevolently and in the interests of the people, when in fact the opposite is true.

Turning truth on its head saying “…Russia’s actions against Ukraine remind us we have more work to do to fully realize our shared vision of a Europe that is whole, free and at peace.” Washington bears full responsibility for Ukrainian crisis conditions.

When Russo quizzed him about this ‘event’, Rockefeller told him that this event would give America and its allies an excuse to invade Iraq and Afghanistan in order that they could construct pipelines through to the Caspian Sea and also to take over the Iraqi oil fields and also that the ‘bogeyman’ Osama bin Laden would be blamed.

This then he said, would lead to soldiers looking for non-existent enemies in caves in Afghanistan and Pakistan and that there would be an endless ‘war on terror where there is no real enemy and the whole thing is a gigantic hoax’. It would also lead to further stringent restrictions and controls over the American people which they would accept for their own ‘safety’.

Why is the media silent on the continuing shakeup in the US nuclear command?

The US mass media and the country’s political officials have shown a remarkable lack of interest in what the Pentagon acknowledged earlier this week was the unprecedented simultaneous firing of two senior commanders at two separate Air Force Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) bases and the administrative disciplining of a third.

Oops, Mr President! CNN typo 'Navy SEAL killed Obama' has Twitter in stitches

CNN has accidently “killed” President barack Obama instead of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in one of its shows. For nearly a minute, CNN displayed a headline with a typo that viewers just could not miss.

The channel’s Erin Burnett OutFront show was dedicated to Robert O'Neill, a Navy SEAL, who is claiming to be the one to have shot and killed Osama bin Laden in the 2011 raid on a Pakistani compound.

CNN eventually replaced "Obama" with "Bin Laden" in the headline, but it was little too late – its viewers had enough time to take pictures of their TV screens and record video to share them online.

How the CIA brought Animal Farm to the screen

The film version of George Orwell's Animal Farm is 60 years old. As a new DVD version is released, we look at how the CIA help fund England's first animated feature film.

The film version of Animal Farm was released to acclaim 60 years ago. There was a gala launch at the United Nations in New York and the film was praised by national newspapers. "The British out-Disney Disney" was one headline.

GMO Food: Battles Lost, War Won, Consciousness Changed

by Jefferey Jaxen

In the age of rapid marketing campaigns, viral slogans and mass multimedia, companies have reinvented and deepened their consumer reach. Indeed, companies are now able to tout their products and services to consumers in ways limited only by imagination. Even political candidates have jumped on the band wagon with brand Obama winning ‘Marketer of the year’ in 2008. Where is it all leading? Have we reached advertising burnout? Have our minds reached full saturation with ads, slogans and clever tag-lines?

So why are GMO manufacturers some of the first sectors in history that don’t market to the consumer?...

Wall Street Banks Have Been Hoarding Billions For One Legal Settlement — And It's Almost Here

Wall Street has been bracing for a billion-dollar currency manipulation investigation that will be over in a few weeks, says The Wall Street Journal.

In the past few weeks, it seems banks have been scrambling to prepare for whatever regulators on both sides of the pond may find after a fairly boring earnings season. Performance was average to slightly below, and the total trading rout banks expected didn't turn out to be that bad.

But then the disclosures started coming.

Canadian Citizens Demand a Parliamentary Investigation into the Ottawa Shootings

TO: Murray Rankin
Member of Parliament
House of Commons
Ottawa, Ontario

-

RE: A PARLIAMENTARY INVESTIGATION INTO THE ATTACK ON OUR PARLIAMENT AND THE MURDER OF TWO SOLDIERS

Dear Mr. Rankin,

What do you think of the idea of a Parliamentary Investigation into the attack on our Parliament?

Right now Canadians are being told a story by Harper, CSIS, The RCMP, and the Corporate Media. A lot of Canadians do not believe this story. I think it important that our Parliamentarians, whose building was attacked, immediately begin your own investigation, on behalf of the people you represent, into what really happened with the attack that killed two soldiers and shut down our Parliament.

The official Government / Media story may be correct in all areas. But maybe not. We have been misled by these people before. Certainly this attack is so important that we must find out the truth, and not rely on people who we have no reason to trust or believe, such as CBC, CTV, the RCMP, the Government, and etc.

Udo Ulfkotte - ‘German politicians are US puppets’

“Now the Americans are even considering blowing up a nuclear power plant in Ukraine and then insisting that the culprits were either separatists or Russians,” claims the German journalist Udo Ulfkotte, former correspondent from Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of the largest German newspapers. He has published a book, Gekaufte Journalisten (“Purchased Journalists”), in which he describes how American and German politicians sway the German media, so that those journalists give the desired spin to world events. Ulfkotte claims that reporters are urged to bias their writing primarily to favor the American position and to oppose Russia. Udo Ulfkotte spoke to about how exactly this occurs and about the path his life is taking today after these revelations were made public.

FBI Defends Impersonating AP Reporter in Cyberattack Arrest

FBI Director James Comey admitted this week that an agent impersonated an Associated Press employee during a 2007 criminal investigation, though he defended the agency's deceptive practices.

Comey wrote in a letter to The New York Times published online Thursday that an FBI agent "portrayed himself as an employee of The Associated Press."

The agent asked an unnamed person suspected of making bomb threats on a high school near Olympia, Wash., to review a bogus AP draft news article about the threats. The agent believed the suspect was a "narcissist," according to the letter.

After clicking the story, court-authorized tracking software was installed on the person's computer, leading to the arrest of a 15-year-old student.

"No actual story was published, and no one except the suspect interacted with the undercover 'A.P.' employee or saw the fake draft story. Only the suspect was fooled," Comey wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, the FBI demonstrates that it believes it can lie to the American people with impunity to achieve whatever outcome they want to have happen.

I would like to politely remind FBI Director Comey that there is no law in the Constitution or Bill of Rights that gives the FBI that capability.

'Ebola is man-made', and other crazy conspiracy theories

Is Obama behind the Ebola outbreak? Are planes poisoning us? Is Lady Gaga part of an evil Illuminati plot? The five conspiracy theories you won't believe people believe

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic "poison the well" propaganda piece in which they take the one theory for which there is evidence; a botch-up of human trials for a vaccine against a weaponized Ebola, and blend it in with all sorts of unrelated nonsense to try to discredit it. But let us look at the facts.

The story that is emerging regarding the current Ebola outbreak involves a US bioweapons research laboratory located in a hospital at Kenema, Sierra Leone.

This facility was staffed by biological warfare researchers from Tulane University and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). Biological warfare research that is illegal to conduct in the United States is carried out in remote locations in Africa.

In 2010, the Obama Administration directed the National Institutes of Health to give offensive biological weapons research high priority.Multiple sources report that some of this research involved weaponization of Ebola. Professor Francis Boyle, a biological weapons expert, reports that the NIH was experimenting with a hybrid of Ebola and the common cold, to make it more contagious.


Obviously, if one is creating a highly contagious BSL 4 hot agent, one must also have a vaccine to protect ones own people, and it appears that this was the research being done at Kenema. In January of 2014, The lab at Kenema received $140 million from the US Defense Department and Tekmira pharmaceuticals to test an experimental Ebola vaccine on humans. Most viral vaccines involve the actual virus which has been attenuated or otherwise inactivated so that it triggers the creation of antibodies, but without producing symptoms of the illness. The attenuated virus must be kept as close to the real virus as possible for maximum antibody production. But even CDC acknowledges that attenuated virus in vaccines can spontaneously revert to full potency inside the body. This appears to be what happened with the recent measles and mumps epidemics in the US, where 90% of the patients had been administered the vaccines for those illnesses. And this may be what happened at Kenema during the human trials for the Ebola vaccine, as the African Ebola outbreak centers on Kenema, Sierra Leone. Certainly the government of Sierra Leone views the biological warfare laboratory as ground zero in the outbreak and has closed the research facility (but reopened the hospital portion in October 2014).

Eric Holder On Fast And Furious Critics: 'Kiss My Ass'

Newly released emails show Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department prosecutors who were critical of the department's handling of the fallout of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal could "kiss my ass."

Operation Fast and Furious was a botched effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to track firearms across the Southwest border. Revelations about it created a political firestorm, leading to congressional investigations and turnover within the ATF and Justice Department.

The Justice Department selectively provided a batch of emails this week to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The Associated Press obtained the emails on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement validates one supremely frustrating aspect of this entire administration; that it believes itself to be above the law, and that laws are only for the "little people", not for government executives.

l90 Pounds Of Cocaine Found On Cargo Ship Owned By Anti-Drug Senator’s Family

A cargo ship connected to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell was recently stopped and searched before departing from Colombia. During the search, Colombian Coast Guard agents seized roughly 90 pounds of cocaine.

The drugs were found on the Ping May, which is a vessel operated by the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a company owned by Mitch McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family. This connection is not only relevant because of the family connection, but also because the Chao family has often made large donations to McConnell’s campaigns.

In fact, the Chao family has been funding McConnell since the late 1980s. Years later, in 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao and secured the Chao family as one of his primary sources for investments.

A gift worth somewhere between 5 and 25 million dollars from the Chao Family made McConnel one of the richest senators in the country in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would almost bet real money that McConnell has the financial and political clout to make this "go away", before any serious charges are filed.

But I have to tell you: I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning!!

And I am also nearly willing to bet you that no reporter in the alleged corporate media will have the "male attributes" to question him about this in public.

Haim Saban Raises $34M to Support Israeli Defense Forces

A tearful Saban told the crowd of more than 1,200 attendees that he discouraged anonymous donations this year because it was important for supporters to "stand with Israel publicly, vocally and very loudly."

Notable donations made at the event included $10 million from Larry Ellison, co-founder and chairman of Oracle; $5 million from top Republican fundraisers Sheldon and Miriam Adelson (who received a standing ovation from the liberal Westside crowd); $5.2 million from brothers Maurice and Paul Marciano of Guess Jeans; $3.6 million from Saban and wife Cheryl; $2 million from Steve Tisch, chairman and executive vp of the New York Giants; $1 million from Leo David, founder of the Western Region of the FIDF; and $1.6 million from The Helmsley Charitable Trust. In addition, first-time attendees and donors Michael and Susan Dell gave $1.8 million to fundIMPACT! educational scholarship programs.

Armored Vehicles and Military Choppers Spotted Near Ferguson Prior to Grand Jury Decision

Is Ferguson on the verge of civil unrest followed by martial law? Recent photos and videos from the area paint an ominous picture.

Ferguson, MO — The Grand Jury decision is expected any minute now out of Ferguson in regards to officer Darren Wilson and the killing of Micheal Brown.

It is highly likely that Wilson will not be indicted which could lead to massive unrest in the area.

Looting and violent rioting will only serve to undo the positive attention which Ferguson protesters have received over the past few months. That being said, there will undoubtedly be some people who use this Grand Jury decision as a means to violate the rights of others, both police and citizens.

However, as we have seen before, even when the protest is not-violent, the police frequently are.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF violence comes to Ferguson, you can almost bet real money that at least some of it will have been manipulated from the outside.

The US government would like nothing better than to squelch a relatively small protest with extreme measures, to show the American people that they can, and will, use excessive force whenever possible, to trample the rights of even peaceful protesters.

To the people of Ferguson, I would counsel patience, complete non-violence in your protests, and the ubiquitous presence of cameras to record EVERYTHING that happened.

Unfortunately, in the USA in the 21st century, the real terrorists ARE members of this government, for whom the Constitution and Bill of Rights have absolutely no meaning, when it comes to We the People.

Please remember: that obnoxious kid advocating the use of anything illegal, or any violence whatsoever, is probably DHS, CIA, NSA, or FBI, attempting to make you do something you know in your heart isn't right.

Can't We All Just Trust Our Governments?

The key takeaway here is this: "Money only has value because we trust it, and this trust is backstopped by our trust in the government of issue."

But what if government itself, via regulatory democracy, is actually intent on misleading investors? In fact, the above sounds reasonable so long as one does not grasp the central issue being avoided – the ability of certain individuals to print what we call "monopoly fiat money."

This book and its review seem to provide us with an apologia for elite – technocratic – management to retain and expand "trust." There is apparently an endless supply of authors ready to attempt the trick of insisting on the necessity of technocracy at the expense of the Invisible Hand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The money and political interests are now well aware that in the age of the internet, their lies, frauds, and deceptions stand exposed. While those money and political interests are quick to blame and attack the independent media, the fact is it is their own actions which have undermined public trust in those institutions, but since changing their behavior is not something they are willing to do, we can expect a campaign of propaganda to convince us that it is somehow our patriotic duty to trust the bankers and politicians no matter how many times we catch them in said lies, frauds, and deception.

If There Aren't Any Ebola Cases in the US, Why is the CDC Doing THIS?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made an interesting announcement today via a press release:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has ordered $2.7 million in personal protective equipment (PPE) to increase Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) supplies to assist U.S. hospitals caring for Ebola patients. Products are being configured into 50 kits that can be rapidly delivered to hospitals. Each kit can provide the PPE needed by clinical teams to manage the care of one Ebola patient for up to five days.

It sure sounds like the government is expecting Ebola to become a problem in the US, doesn't it? But there really haven't been any reports of suspected cases in the news lately. All has been quiet on the Ebola front, so to speak.

Maybe there won't be more cases of the deadly virus in the US.

Or, maybe something else is going on.

Did the government hack a CBS journalist? Maybe

Sharyl Attkisson was hacked. The computers used by the former CBS News investigative reporter were found to have been remotely accessed and tampered with, according to both a CBS-hired forensics expert and by a reputable information security firm that did an analysis commissioned by Attkisson herself. Those are the facts as we know them.

Currently, that’s where the facts end and the allegations begin. Attkisson, whose book Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation and Harassment in Obama’s Washington was released this week, claims to have evidence that she was hacked by someone working for the government.

MEGA PUKE-FACTOR 9 BEX TSUNAMI ALERT - How Hillary Clinton won the 2014 midterms

But here’s the thing: In politics, the easy answer isn’t always the only answer, and the winner of an election isn’t always the one who benefits most. Take a closer look at demography, geography and the road ahead for the parties, and it’s clear that the long-term winner of the 2014 midterms wasn’t the GOP at all. The long-term winner, in fact, wasn’t even on the ballot this year.

Her name is Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about desperation on the cusp of madness! Hillary's spin-doctors are already out in force trying to delink the drubbing the Democrats got this week from Her Hillaryness. But the hard reality is that both Hillary and Bill Clinton did a lot of stumping around the nation trying to use their "star power" to lure Democratic voters, and it plainly did not work. And if Hillary could not attract voters in 2014, few will think she can in 2016. Yes, by 2016 the voters will be angry with the now GOP Congress, but Obama is still the Democratic President and shows no signs of altering the behavior which cost the Democrats Congress. Obama is one albatross around Hillary's neck she will not easily be rid of, especially of the GOP Congress decides to impeach Obama for his many high crimes and misdemeanors.

Israeli Cease Fire Violations and Media Propaganda

The Israeli conquest of Palestine has always been a difficult issue for Western mainstream media to cover. The difficulty lies not in the task of reporting the facts on the ground and transmitting an accurate depiction of them to the public, but in refraining from doing so.

The journalistic mission, to provide citizens with factual information that enables them to be informed participants in democratic decision making, conflicts with the corporate mission, to maximize profits and influence.

With the Democrats suffering substantial losses in the 2014 midterm elections, it is likely that the advice from pundits and political journalists will be the same as it always is: Move to the right.

This has been the counsel almost any time that Democrats lose at the polls (Extra!, 9/92, 1/95, 1/11), rooted in the assumption that when the party veers too far leftward, the public reacts.

FBI Admits Agent Impersonated Reporter During Criminal Investigation

SEATTLE (AP) — FBI Director James Comey says an agent impersonated an Associated Press reporter during a 2007 criminal investigation, a ruse the news organization says could undermine its credibility.

In a letter Thursday to The New York Times, Comey said the agent "portrayed himself as an employee of The Associated Press" to help catch a 15-year-old suspect accused of making bomb threats at a high school near Olympia, Washington. It was publicized last week that the FBI forged an AP story during its investigation, but Comey's letter revealed the agency went further and had an agent actually pretend to be a reporter for the wire service.

POLITICAL BUNRAKU

For those who are not familiar, Bunraku is an old form of Japanese puppet theater, its distinctive characteristic being that the puppeteers are on the stage with their puppets, dressed in black so that the audience can pretend not to see them.

Bunraku, as it happens, offers a remarkable metaphor for some contemporary operations of American foreign policy. So many times – in Syria, Ukraine, Libya, Venezuela, Egypt – we see dimly the actors on stage, yet we are supposed to pretend they are not there. We can’t identify them with precision, but we know they are there. Most oddly, the press in the United States, and to a lesser extent that of its various allies and dependents, pretends to report what is happening without ever mentioning the actors. They report only the movements of the puppets.
