U.S. Propaganda Enters Into Insane, Irrational Overdrive in Attempt to “Sell” War in Syria

Thanks to a dizzying barrage of lies, mainstream media fear-mongering and a couple of beheadings, the Obama Administration finally achieved its long sought after war in Syria. The tactic that proved most effective in mobilizing the American public back into a shivering, post-9/11 fetal position, was the same tactic used by elites in the UK to convince Scotland against voting for independence. That tactic, is fear.

Michael Brown Had a Father - But will Ferguson shift media ideas on ‘fixing’ black men?

Any effort to improve the lives of black men that meets with the hearty approval of Bill O’Reilly ought to set off a few alarm bells. But My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative announced by Barack Obama in February, was received benignly by the corporate press, with the closest thing to criticism being “Should he have acted earlier?”

New York Times Mischaracterizes New FBI Report

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Things have sure changed at the New York Times. In 1863, the newspaper used a Gatling gun to scare off a mob of draft protestors. Today, it can’t resist the temptation to put an anti-gun spin on things any chance it gets.

This week, the Times ran an article titled “FBI Confirms a Sharp Rise in Mass Shootings Since 2000,” which claimed that a report recently released by the FBI found that “Mass shootings have risen dramatically in the past half-dozen years.”

Say what? Come again?

‘No military value’ in US Syria targets

The US airstrikes in Syria target militants with “no military value” hitting the infrastructures, says Dr. Alan Sabrosky, a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a 1986 graduate of the US Army War College.

Washington intends to inflict “such damage to the economic and industrial infrastructure within Syria that any Syrian government after the fighting will be so weakened that it will be vulnerable to further attacks.”

Grooveshark Found Guilty of Massive Copyright Infringement…

If you’re a Grooveshark user, you should probably start backing up your collection. In a decision released Monday, the United States District Court in Manhattan has found Grooveshark guilty of massive copyright infringement based on a preponderance of internal emails, statements from former top executives, direct evidence from internal logs, and willfully deleted files and source code.

Specifically, CEO Samuel Tarantino and co-founder and CTO Josh Greenberg will face the heaviest charges, which remain to be determined. The others were just scared rats: earlier, a number of top Grooveshark executives were removed from the defendant list in a settlement agreement, which now appears part of a clever exchange for cooperation. Oh and did they talk…

US Openly Approves Hong Kong Chaos it Created

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The "Occupy Central" protests in Hong Kong continue on - destabilizing the small southern Chinese island famous as an international hub for corporate-financier interests, and before that, the colonial ambitions of the British Empire. Those interests have been conspiring for years to peel the island away from Beijing after it was begrudgingly returned to China in the late 1990s, and use it as a springboard to further destabilize mainland China...

Big Lies Launch Lawless Wars

Obama’s Iraq war III is lawless. It has no legal authority. It constitutes cold, calculated, premeditated naked aggression.

The same holds for his three-and-a-half year proxy war on Syria. It was planned long before March 2011 hostilities began. It’s now elevated to direct US intervention.

Last Tuesday, US warplanes bombed multiple Syrian targets. Precise ones aren’t clear.

Turkey and Israel in Liaison with US-NATO are Supporting the Islamic State (ISIS) and Al Qaeda Terrorists In Syria

The Jerusalem Post reports that an ISIS fighter says that Turkey funds the terrorist group. Turkey is a member of NATO and a close U.S. ally.

A German news program – with English subtitles captions – shows that Turkey is sending terrorists into Syria. Opposition Turkish lawmakers say that the government is protecting and cooperating with ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists, and providing free medical care to their leaders.
According to a leading Turkish newspaper (Today’s Zaman), Turkish nurses are sick of providing freemedical treatment to ISIS terrorists in Turkish hospitals.

According to Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh and leaked phone calls between top Turkish officials, Turkey also carried out the chemical weapons attack which has been blamed on Assad, and has planned other “false flag attacks” within Turkey.

Nebraska Legislature runs its own news service

LINCOLN, Neb. — If you go to a hearing on a high-profile bill at the Nebraska Legislature, you might see a TV reporter here, a newspaper reporter there and a reporter who’s being paid by the Legislature itself.

In addition to the gaggle of TV, radio, online and newspaper reporters that regularly cover the Legislature, a handful of lesser-known reporters write about the Legislature while also working for it.

The Unicameral Information Office employs three public information officers — who earn an average of $47,442 per year — who do public relations but also act as journalists, taking photos and writing stories about legislation, just like the free press. They’re overseen by a director who earns nearly $60,000 annually. Altogether, they earn more than $200,000 in salaries, not counting benefits and office costs.

US-led coalition against ISIL: Front for regime change

Listening to American and British leaders this week one would think that Barack Obama and David Cameron are knights in shining armor on an epic crusade to defeat global evil.

The campaign against IS is a front for the criminal agenda of regime change in Syria and the region. This real, criminal agenda should be exposed and condemned at every opportunity. To consort with this mob is to corrupt international law and morality.

Unbelievably, too many states seem to be going along with this ridiculous charade, as can be gleaned from the way Obama and Cameron’s posturing was indulged this week at the United Nations General Assembly.

Our final conclusion is this: Obama and Cameron are using simplistic moralizing rhetoric about “defeating evil” in order to: 1) conceal their own criminal legacy; 2) pressure the rest of the world into endorsing their presumed but ill-deserved authority; and 3) promote their criminal agenda of regime change under a moral cover.

Obama blames his intelligence chief for his own shortcomings, say critics

President Barack Obama denigrated the United States’ intelligence community in an interview broadcast Sunday evening for giving him and his White House an incorrect assessment of the capabilities of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), during his interview with newsman Steve Kroft, who has been accused of being an "Obama water carrier" by conservative viewers. Obama told Croft on the CBS TV Network's Sunday night edition of 60 Minutes that his "head of the intelligence community, James (Jim) Clapper... underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the whole "we underestimated ISIS" is a ploy to sell the American people boots on the ground despite the early assurances this would not happen. Now Obama needs someone to drop the blame on.

Media censor Argentine president’s remarks at UN

The Argentine president questioned countries such as the United States for attacking groups, including the ISIL Takfiri terrorists which Washington previously backed against the Syrian government.

“Where do ISIS (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda take their guns from? Yesterday’s freedom fighters are today’s terrorists,” Cristina Fernandez said, blasting US policies vis-a-vis terrorism.

The ISIL terrorists, who were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government, control large parts of Syria’s northern territory. The group sent its members into neighboring Iraq in June and seized large parts of land there.

Strike up the violins and break out the barf bags. The poor little defenseless Jews who, by the way, own the bloody West - lock, stock, and barrel - are concerned about a recent rise in European 'anti-Semitism' -TM. As evidence of Europe's possible "return to 1939" (palm to face,sigh), Sulzberger's Jew York Slimes cites a handful of isolated incidents which took place on this continent of 300 + million people:

A single pro-Gaza protester in France allegedly yelled, "Gas the Jews!"

A synagogue in Germany was allegedly attacked by a Molotov Cocktail.

A Swedish Jew was allegedly beaten up just for being Jewish.

Coach recalls missing student's wit, leadership

Yellow ribbons adorn the streets of Hannah Graham’s Northern Virginia neighborhood, symbols of hope in a community devastated by the disappearance of a woman described as extremely intelligent and witty, with a dry sense of humor.

Graham vanished on Sept. 13, her steps recorded by grainy surveillance videos as she walked unaccompanied on the streets of Charlottesville and its popular Downtown Mall, an open air center of shops, bars and restaurants. She is a sophomore at the University of Virginia.

A suspect in her disappearance, Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., was extradited from Texas on Friday after he was arrested on a beach Wednesday near Galveston. Because of a statewide judicial conference at the courthouse, the earliest Matthew could make a court appearance is Thursday.

Police have charged Matthew, 32, with “abduction with intent to defile” the 18-year-old Graham. “Defile,” in a legal context, means “sexually molest.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope this young woman is found safe. However, I have to wonder at why the corporate media is spending so much time on her case. The fact is that every single day in America, 2300 people go missing. Is this particular incident being sensationalized as a distraction to draw focus from the rush into war?

The AngloZionist Empire is at War with Russia

Listening to Poroshenko a few days ago and then to Obama at the UNGA can leave no doubt whatsoever about the fact that the AngloZionist Empire is at war with Russia. Yet many believe that the Russian response to this reality is inadequate.Likewise, there is a steady stream of accusations made against Putin about Russia’s policy towards the crisis in the Ukraine.What I propose to do here is to offer a few basic reminders about Putin, his obligations and his options. First and foremost, Putin was never elected to be the world’s policeman or savior, he was only elected to be president of Russia. Seems obvious, but yet many seem to assume that somehow Putin is morally obliged to do something to protect Syria, Novorussia or any other part of our harassed world. This is not so. Yes, Russia is the de facto leader of the BRICS and SCO countries, and Russia accepts that fact, but Putin has the moral and legal obligation to care for his own people first.

World's First Wearable Drone Takes Flight

Nicholas West
Activist Post

As Congress and the FAA continue to discuss the parameters of drone use, a widening array of them are already taking flight. A new exemption has been granted for Hollywood, only the second after one was granted to BP earlier this year. This latest exemption greatly widens the scope for commercial drone use. According to Fortune, 40 other companies have filed for exemptions to the ban under section 333 of FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.

A new invention seeks to merge drones with the booming trend of any sort of wearable tech or "augmented reality." That's right, why not a wearable drone?...

ISIS and the USA: Expansion and Resistance by Decapitation

If the brutal decapitation and dismemberment of innocent civilians is a capital crime that should be punished, as I believe it is, then both ISIS and the Obama regime with his allied leaders should face a people’s war crimes tribunal in the countries where the crimes occurred.

In order to overcome massive US and world public opposition to new wars in the Middle East, Obama relied on the horrific internet broadcasts of ISIS slaughtering two American hostages, the journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff, by decapitation. These brutal murders were Obama’s main propaganda tool to set a new Middle East war agenda – his own casus belli bonanza! This explains the US Administration’s threats of criminal prosecution against the families of Foley and Stoloff when they sought to ransom their captive sons from ISIS.

“Cause a ripple among the sleeping populace and you’re out.”

Well, I’ll tell you what could be next, based on the fact that the Internet runs via an interlocking system of commercial companies.

The journey of the word "conspiracies" and the phrase "conspiracy theory" has reached its glory days. The trigger word worked for a while.

Alternative Media Success Panics NeoCons

While most old people still cling to the corporate media worldview, the young are skewing ever-harder toward alternative perspectives.

Why does the vast majority of Scottish young people favor independence, while an equally crushing majority of old people opposes it?

The Hot Pursuit of the Hamster Swine with the Treadmill Spinning Blues.

Coalition of the Clueless in Syria

Takes a look at the 'Coalition of the Clueless' and tries to explain why Syria, Iran and Russia are being so low-key in their reaction to US airstrikes on Syrian territory. In a nutshell, this trio can afford to be opportunistic because they see this Coalition going nowhere fast.

The airwaves are still heaving with spin two days after US airstrikes against Syria.

Undoubtedly the attacks were timed to occur on the eve of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations, so ‘Coalition’ partners could cluster behind the decision to bomb a sovereign state, uninvited.

The irony, of course, is that they are doing so at the UN – the global political body that pledges to uphold international law, peace and stability, and the sanctity of the nation-state unit.

The goal this week will be to keep the ‘momentum’ on a ‘narrative’ until it sinks in.

Green Journalism; Mainstream Media Creating Climate Stories

The Guardian story is another in a stream of articles in the mainstream media, apparently designed to counter growing public and political awareness that IPCC science is wrong. Increasingly, they take the form used by a person or group losing an argument. It is known as an ad hominem, defined as “attacking an opponent’s character rather than answering the arguments.” It usually applies to an individual, but the modern form is collective. You identify a group with a name, such as “birther”,“conspiracy theorist”, “global warming skeptic”, or “climate change denier”, which marginalizes them and destroys their credibility. Is a collective ad hominem an oxymoron? It is further evidence of the political nature of the climate debate. As US commentator, George Will, said, “When a politician says the debate is over, you can be sure of two things; the debate is raging; and he’s losing it.”

U.S. Propaganda Delves Into The Insane

Thanks to a dizzying barrage of lies, mainstream media fear-mongering and a couple of beheadings, the Obama Administration finally achieved its long sought after war in Syria.

That tactic, as I detailed in a recent post, is fear.

PR Firm Pulls ‘Emma Watson Naked Pics’ False Flag to Push For Internet Censorship

A PR firm has admitted to carrying out an online false flag against the 4chan forum in which it blamed the website for a threat to release naked pictures of actress Emma Watson as part of an appeal to President Barack Obama to censor the Internet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone foolish enough to take nude pictures and put them on the web is just asking for trouble, and the reality is that more than a few stars intentionally plant nude pictures of themselves where they will be "discovered" as part of the campaign to increase their fame and "bankability." Setting that aside, this whole episode reminds us that the government and corporate media persist in trying to find ways to shut down the open and free internet and turn it into just another government and corporate controlled content and propaganda delivery system. Public Relations firms are paid vast amounts of money to engage in activities which for normal civilians would be punishable as crimes.

Japanese children’s cartoon Crayon Shin-chan branded pornography

With his penchant for mooning and blurting out risqué spoonerisms, Crayon Shin-chan has delighted Japanese children, and infuriated their parents, for more than two decades.

But now the precocious five-year-old has met his match in the form of Indonesian regulators, who have declared his antics as “borderline pornography” and warned broadcasters to censor images of his bare buttocks, scantily clad women and other indecorous scenes.

Operation Tomahawk The Caliph

The Tomahawks are finally flying again – propelled by newspeak. 42 Tomahawks fired from a Sixth Fleet destroyer parked in Mare Nostrum, plus F-22s raising hell and Hellfires spouted by drones, that’s a neat mini-Shock and Awe to honor Caliph Ibrahim, aka Abu Bakr al -Baghdadi, self-declared leader of Islamic State.

What a mess. Al-Qaeda in Iraq is the embryo of ISIS, which turned into IS. Jabhat al-Nusra is the al-Qaeda franchise in Syria, approved by CEO Ayman al-Zawahiri. Both despise each other, and yet Khorasan holds the merit of bundling Caliph’s goons and al-Qaeda goons together. Additionally, for Washington Jabhat al-Nusra tend to qualify as “moderate” jihadis – almost like “our bastards”. Too messy?

No problem; when in doubt, bomb everybody.

Propaganda, Brain-washing, Playing Dumb to Avoid the Truth

In a previous article, I suggested that Americans are propagandized on two levels: culturally and politically. The elite work to scare and discombobulate regular people in various ways. Call it propaganda, brain-washing, mind-control, double-speak, etc. The result is to try and reduce people to muddled, frightened messes. These manipulative machinations generally work.

World Buzzing in Aftermath of ISIS Psyop

Scripted engineered consent for expanded war raises worldwide suspicion.

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Psychological operations and the end result of these operations are little known to most of humanity. Those that conduct the operations don't announce what they are doing, in the same way a magician never gives away his secrets. Understanding the principle of secrecy and how important it is to magicians is all you need to understand the culture of secrecy among the ranks of the controlling class.

One of the tricks to understanding how to stay sane in an insane world is understanding the process of how the world works. Now more than ever it is important to distinguish between truth and lies, what is factually happening versus how different people interpret or spin those events. It is important to separate emotional feeling from pure knowledge and facts. And it is important to realize the truth that is right in front of you regardless of how painful the truth may seem...

The CIA’s Invention of the “Conspiracy Theorist”: Smear Campaign to Discredit Dissenters

In his 2013 book, Conspiracy Theory in America, author Lance deHaven-Smith traced the term “conspiracy theory” back to a CIA propaganda campaign that was designed to discredit doubters of the Warren Commission’s fake search into who assassinated President Kennedy in Dallas. In this light, the use of this pejorative term is obviously a tactic to shame and humiliate those who saw through the ulterior motives of the commission, and thus effectively censor out or even banish anyone who questions official government accounts.

Scottish Independence Vote Stolen, Massive Coverup Ensues, Usual Suspects ID’ed

Scotland’s Independence Could Not Be Permitted

Not only is Scotland a major player in the banking and commerce arena enjoyed by the UK around the globe, they also technically own much of the North Sea oil reserves which London uses to grease its many and diverse financial relationships. Were the UK to lose that single source of oil revenue, their whole economy would be in jeopardy.

How The Fight Over Oil Fueled Scotland’s Independence Vote

The collaterization of oil reserves alone provides a tremendous amount of financial muscle that the City of London would otherwise lack. In view of how much the UK has suffered economically since the Crash of 2008, it is clear the Crown could not weather another setback like Scottish independence.

Washington and its allies have now crossed a dangerous Rubicon, setting the stage for an all-out war on Syria under the guise of “defeating extremism.”

Donor blackmail Silences Criticism of Israel

Donor blackmail is the last front line for the Zionists as they continue to suffer defeats in the battle for public opinion.

Due to Israel’s brutal racism and repeated attacks on Palestinian civilians, it is losing popular support internationally. As this happens, the Zionists appear to be intensifying pressure on societal and political elites, particularly in the U.S. and other Western states, to maintain policies that support and protect Israel’s criminal behavior.

If you cannot win by debate, how do you combat the growing popular suspicion of Israeli and Zionist actions? You do it by pressuring the donor-dependent elite leadership of institutions, such as universities and colleges, to suppress and punish those who criticize Israel.

Their vehicle for achieving this goal has always been financial gifts and donations to elite individuals and institutions.

General ‘Breedhate’ in Another Sabotage Sortie

The irresponsible language of Four-Star General Breedlove in exacerbating the crisis makes one wonder if his name should not henceforth be known as General “Breedhate”.

US Air Force General Philip Breedlove strafed the renewed peace plan for Ukraine before it barely got off the ground at the weekend, thereby aiming to shoot down another political bid to end months of deadly violence in the country.

It’s not the first time that the NATO military chief has used high-flown rhetoric to preempt a diplomatic solution to end the fighting in war-torn eastern Ukraine. That conflict has claimed nearly 3,000 lives over the past six months, with up to one million civilians displaced and millions more trapped in a spiralling humanitarian crisis.

Obama’s ‘stupid stuff’ turned upside down

So much hard work to pivot from GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) to the Big Boys in Eurasia. So little time – and competence. The Caliph’s goons have announced on the record they would go for beheading Putin. If only the Pentagon would subcontract the job.

First Obama promised there would be no ground troops to fight The Caliph – as in a re-invasion of Iraq. Then General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that if the current gambit of Obama’s self-defined “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” foreign policy doctrine does not work – and it won’t – he’ll go for ground troops, embedded or otherwise.

On Ukraine, the Big Picture spells out the European Union mired in a horrendous crisis, under a third recession in five years, obviously without the cash, not to mention the will, to pay Ukraine’s humongous bills. Sooner – with negotiations starting this Saturday in Berlin – or later the EU will have to find an accommodation with Moscow to guarantee its precious gas supplies.

In a blatant conflict of interest, defense contractors and foreign governments are hiring pundits and think tanks to advocate for their agendas without media outlets disclosing their fiscal ties.

Obama Launches His War, Finally

Obama’s presidency has come full circle by reinventing the neocon dogmas it once professed to reject. On the pretext of fighting the IS, which the US and its allies created in the first instance, what is unfolding is a massive neocon project to remold the Muslim Middle East to suit the US’ geopolitical objectives. Call it by whatever name, it is an imperial war – albeit with a Nobel as commander-in-chief.

The US will pit Muslims against Muslims in a grim war through the deployment of ‘smart power’, which would ensure that American casualties are avoided.

The strategy is built on three pillars – firstly, setting well-defined limits to the actual American intervention in military terms, secondly, resuscitating the ‘regime change’ agenda in Syria and, thirdly, dispensing with any mandate from the United Nations. In essence, it becomes a repackaged version of the crudely unilateralist US intervention in the Middle East by the George W. Bush administration.

BBC's new "Head of Statistics" twists casualty figures to whitewash Gaza massacre

An open letter to the BBC's Director General, written by Palestine solidarity activists, is calling for the removal of BBC journalist Anthony Reuben from all reporting on Palestine following the publication of an online article in which he attempts to sanitize Israel's killing in Gaza. Reuben is the BBC's "Head of Statistics," a role created in February, he claims in his Linkedin profile, specifically for him.

Writing as "Head of Statistics" in August, Reuben authored an article for the BBC website headlined "Caution needed with Gaza casualty figures." When he wrote the article, 1,948 Palestinians had been killed in Israel's assault on Gaza, the majority of them men.

Reuben uses the fact that more men than women had been killed as an opportunity to argue that Israel was carrying out targeted attacks, aimed only at fighting men, and wasn't pursuing the wholesale slaughter of civilians and the wanton destruction of homes and infrastructure.

There was more bad news for Israel. The IDF launched a major air and ground military offensives and did not come close to destroying its adversaries’ leadership, organization, military capabilities and alliances. During the seven weeks of brutal attacks against the densely-populated civilian centers, Israel managed to put the Palestinian issue back on the Arab map, draw unprecedented global censure, and give wings to the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) campaign to undermine Israel’s economy. Israel also managed to unify Palestinian political parties across the board – a minor miracle – and make regional heroes out of the “Palestinian Resistance.” With every lash of Israel’s whip, Palestinians found new determination to break the siege of Gaza and end Israel’s occupation.

TMZ reports that the HologramUSA head went to court back in May claiming Textor stole the technology that created the holographic image, and asking the judge to block Textor from showcasing the hologram on the show.

After the lawsuit was denied, according to legal documents acquired by TMZ, David went on a hate campaign against Textor, even going so far as to post a photo of Hitler on Instagram tagged with Textor’s name. David also allegedly sent Textor death threats and allegedly tried extorting him with photos and illicit money transfers.

Textor went to court this week represented by attorney Marty Singer, asking for a protective order, which was granted. David was ordered to stop the harassment and steer clear of Textor. He has also been ordered to get rid of any guns he owns and is forbidden from buying more. In addition, David has been ordered to remove the Hitler photos and the various threats from social media.

9/11 After 13 years Paul Craig Roberts

The corrupt Bush and Obama regimes used 9/11 to kill, maim, dispossess and displace millions of Muslims in seven countries, none of whom had anything whatsoever to do with 9/11.

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state.

Watching the twin towers and WTC 7 come down, it was obvious to me that the buildings were not falling down as a result of structural damage. When it became clear that the White House had blocked an independent investigation of the only three steel skyscrapers in world history to collapse as a result of low temperature office fires, it was apparent that there was a coverup.

What draws Modi to China

Modi has gleefully inherited the two key anchor sheets of India’s foreign policy – primacy on economic diplomacy and strategic autonomy.

On the other hand, under him, there has been a discernible shift in deploying strategic autonomy no longer as a ‘stand-alone’ pillar but as purposive underpinning for economic diplomacy.

Second, Modi has sifted the locus of economic diplomacy – and India’s leanings toward the Western world that went under that rubric through the past decade in foreign policy domain – away from the West to Asia.

Modi is due to visit the US in exactly twelve days from now. But there is nothing of the American rhetoric that used to mark a Manmohan Singh visit to the White House.

An idea was thought of initially to propitiate Modi by granting him the privilege of addressing the US Congress. But it has been quietly shelved.

All this certainly needs some explanation.

Jewish State and Islamic State, Like Breeds Like

When the US and its allies say they are doing what is right by humanity, and by their values, the question begging to be asked is where is their humanity and values in regard to the Palestinian people, and why are they not equally doing what is right by humanity, and by their values towards “the Jewish State” and its aggression, crimes and gross violations of human rights, international law and resolutions? — Ali Kazak(former Palestinian ambassador to Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, East Timor and the South Pacific region)

The US behaves like a lion and a superpower with Russia, China and other countries but like a pussy cat and a banana republic when dealing with Israel.

Arrayed against Scots is a formidable army of opponents. The British monarch, the Bank of England, all of the Westminster political establishment, the oil companies, the London-centered, biased media, and even British military intelligence and its allies in Washington and NATO.

So, Scotland the Brave, strike hard, strike true; for the good people of the world stand with you.

American Establishment Combats Resurgent ‘Isolationist’ Threat

“With communism gone, the conservative coalition should have fractured long ago. This was delayed by Sept. 11 and the rise of radical Islam. But now, 12 years into that era — after Afghanistan and Iraq, after drone wars and the NSA revelations — the natural tension between isolationist and internationalist tendencies has resurfaced.”

In 2013 it became apparent that the American people had grown averse to America’s involvement in wars, and that received empirical confirmation in 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.

ISIS Beheadings on Cue from Washington and London?

The question is this: are these shocking executions, with their highly stylized graphic videos, being used to manipulate public consent for Western military intervention in Syria? In that case, ISIS is not acting in some apparent rogue fashion, turning on its Western intelligence masters, but rather it is obeying orders as usual as part of a macabre charade to facilitate Western military intervention.

A meeting this week in Paris will allegedly firm up military tactics on how the US-led coalition will carry out its putative strikes. So far, Washington has said that it will not be committing ground troops as in the previous Iraq War (2003-2012) and the ongoing US-led campaign against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Obama said the modus operandi against ISIS would be like its “counter-terror operations in Yemen and Somalia”, where US air power is assisted by “partners on the ground”.

How the media shafted the people of Scotland

Journalists in their gilded circles are woefully out of touch with popular sentiment and shamefully slur any desire for change

Perhaps the most arresting fact about the Scottish referendum is this: that there is no newspaper – local, regional or national, English or Scottish – that supports independence except the Sunday Herald. The Scots who will vote yes have been almost without representation in the media.

There is nothing unusual about this. Change in any direction, except further over the brink of market fundamentalism and planetary destruction, requires the defiance of almost the entire battery of salaried opinion. What distinguishes the independence campaign is that it has continued to prosper despite this assault.

NBC: Survive Home Invasion By Cooperating With Invaders, 'Treat Them Like Royalty'

On September 8 NBC's Today show aired a segment on how to survive a home invasion. That advice included cooperating with the invaders -- "treat them like royalty" -- and telling them the location of everything they want in the house.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attention thieves, murderers, and rapists. Feel free to enter the home of the executives over at NBC, as you will clearly have an easy time with them. Meanwhile, be aware that if you enter my house, you will be treated like royalty, such as Charles I, Louise XVI, Tsar Nicholas II, Ludwig III, just to name a few.

ISIS (Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure) Releases New Video, Warns "Fighting Has Just Begun"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us say you are ISIS and you are making great gains inside Syria and Iraq. The very LAST thing you want is direct military intervention. Hence the very LAST thing you will do is any actions or videos that help the US Government sell the American people on yet another war.

This story, like the beheadings videos, is just more war propaganda brought to you by the same government and corporate media that brought you torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, Saddam's nuclear weapons, etc. etc. etc. etc.

How many times do you have to be lied to by the government before you face up to the fact that you are being lied to by the government?

As a side note, this is a very professional production with high dynamic range high-speed cameras for those dramatic slow-motion shots! Not the kind of equipment one finds outside major media centers like New York or Hollywood!

FALSE FLAG ALERT - ISIS followers urged to attack Times Square with homemade bombs

Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday.

A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported.

Noam Chomsky: Why Americans Know So Much About Sports But So Little About World Affairs

When I'm driving, I sometimes turn on the radio and I find very often that what I'm listening to is a discussion of sports. These are telephone conversations. People call in and have long and intricate discussions, and it's plain that quite a high degree of thought and analysis is going into that. People know a tremendous amount. They know all sorts of complicated details and enter into far-reaching discussion about whether the coach made the right decision yesterday and so on. These are ordinary people, not professionals, who are applying their intelligence and analytic skills in these areas and accumulating quite a lot of knowledge and, for all I know, understanding. On the other hand, when I hear people talk about, say, international affairs or domestic problems, it's at a level of superficiality that's beyond belief.

Infowars Characterizes Pro-Palestinians / Anti-Israelis as Terrorists

Infowars.com ran a dramatic, front-page story yesterday titled "FEDS FIND 9/11 TERROR MESSAGE ON BORDER FENCE". They linked to a Breitbart story by 'Brandon Darby', whose actual headline didn't contain the phrase "terror message" at all, but rather said Exclusive: Feds Find Anti-Israel and Pro-Palestine 9/11 Message to America on Border Fence.

It appears Infowars got their headline from Zionist website worldnetdaily.com, whose headline read FEDS FIND 9/11 TERROR MESSAGE ON BORDER FENCE. DrudgeReport.com also ran the Breitbart story but used the WND "terror message" headline as well. It is not clear who wrote that headline but it is odd because all three sites used the '9/11 TERROR MESSAGE' headline yet linked to the URL of the Breitbart story, where the phrase '9/11 TERROR MESSAGE' appeared nowhere.

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...

Feds step up terrorist recruitment fight in U.S.

The U.S. Government is planning to step up its fight against recruiting of Americans by groups like the Islamic State in the Iraq and the Levant, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Monday.

In a video message posted on the Justice Department's website, Holder said a series of cities "across the nation" will be be chosen to participate in a pilot program that will involve an extra effort to combat the message of groups like ISIL and to intervene with those susceptible to that message before they take action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attorney General Holder, that last statement is contemptibly disingenuous.

For all the policies which bring even more money for the one percenters, and marginalize the American middle ever further into poverty, this administration has been always a slave of the large corporations which put this administration into power, twice.

Decent-paying jobs have been allowed to be offshored/outsourced to the point where decent family people have been forced into taking several minimum wage jobs with absolutely no hope whatsoever for advancement, just to barely pay the rent.

This has, in turn, pushed families, and particularly children, into poverty where getting the next meal can be a big issue.

And this Federally sponsored tsunami of illegal immigrants, many of them bringing illness into this country, unchecked?!? Of course, this will lower the cost of doing business, which large corporations love.

But what about Americans looking frantically, and consistently for work who were born here, or became citizens legally?!? Have these people stopped mattering, in the larger scheme of things, to this Administration?!?

These policies, Attorney General Holder, are NOT how one creates a "...more just, secure, and free society that all Americans deserve."

You, sir, should be ashamed at how President Obama's policies have been hurting this country, both domestically, and internationally.

Of course, I fully understand that before taking your oath of office, you, and all of your associates had your conscience surgically removed.

BEX ALERT - British jihadist medical student, 21, is pictured holding severed head while wearing her white doctor's jacket

A woman believed to be a British medical student who left the UK in order to join ISIS has posted an image on social media of herself holding a severed head.

The woman, who goes by the Twitter name of Mujahidah Bint Usama, claims to be a doctor for the terror group based in Raqqa, Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! They are really laying on the industrial strength bovine excrement right now!

This tells us they are not getting the traction with the public they thought they would with the first staged beheadings. So, if at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again.

Next they will probably gas a cute puppy, like they did to sell the second invasion of Iraq.

Comcast Is Monitoring Your Tor Usage, Threatening To Cut Services

Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) is reportedly telling its subscribers, who are using the Tor service, to stop doing so or risk losing their Internet services. As if the company needed any help to cement its position as the most hated company in America, it has just done itself a huge favor. A number of reports have surfaced over the last few days, chronicling encounters and experiences some Comcast subscribers have had with the company’s support group.

Users have been warned that if they use Tor, they can risk losing their Internet services provided by Comcast. Tor is a Web anonymizing service, which lets users surf and browse the Internet in complete privacy and anonymity. The service gained a lot of traction after Edward Snowden leaked information about the US government, specifically the National Security Agency (NSA), massive-monitoring US citizens without their knowledge.

Dear Attorney Erkkila: We meet again, and this time the stakes are higher. I received notice today, one year to the date of Attorney General Lisa Madigan's press release, that your client has again run afoul of the law. Specifically they, along with Keller Williams representatives Greg Beam and/or Pat Kolar, unlawfully entered premises owned by one Nellie Blanco, as you can see by the current Deed and related government - issued tax and property information. In today's taped phone call to me, Greg Beam denied any specific knowledge and said that Pat Kolar was handling this matter. Pat Kolar did not return my taped phone call.

Who’s Paying the Pro-War Pundits?

If you read enough news and watch enough cable television about the threat of the Islamic State, the radical Sunni Muslim militia group better known simply as ISIS, you will inevitably encounter a parade of retired generals demanding an increased US military presence in the region. They will say that our government should deploy, as retired General Anthony Zinni demanded, up to 10,000 American boots on the ground to battle ISIS. Or as in retired General Jack Keane’s case, they will make more vague demands, such as for “offensive” air strikes and the deployment of more military advisers to the region.

But what you won’t learn from media coverage of ISIS is that many of these former Pentagon officials have skin in the game as paid directors and advisers to some of the largest military contractors in the world.

The sad truth is that Alan Dershowitz, like the black garbed hangman working for ISIS, like the unseen trained sniper hiding on the roof top in a Gazan village protected by the captured family to use as security insurance against a Hamas militant, like the pilot of the F-16 releasing his missiles, like any and all who justify criminal acts for their own selfless ends or through forced indoctrination serve those in power and become in fact figures made of mud like the Golem of old Prague, but a servant of their master, lacking a soul and made indifferent to their fellow humans. For Dershowitz that very loss of his humanity is perhaps his greatest gift.
