The CIA And The Media: 50 Historical Facts The World Needs To Know


Since the end of World War Two the Central Intelligence Agency has been a major force in US and foreign news media, exerting considerable influence over what the public sees, hears and reads on a regular basis. CIA publicists and journalists alike will assert they have few, if any, relationships, yet the seldom acknowledged history of their intimate collaboration indicates a far different story–indeed, one that media historians are reluctant to examine.

When seriously practiced, the journalistic profession involves gathering information concerning individuals, locales, events, and issues. In theory such information informs people about their world, thereby strengthening “democracy.” This is exactly why reason news organizations and individual journalists are tapped as assets by intelligence agencies and, as German the experiences of journalist Udo Ulfkotte (entry 47 below) suggest, this practice is at least as widespread today as it was at the height of the Cold War.

kennedy_ciaConsider the coverups of election fraud in 2000 and 2004, the events of September 11, 2001, the invasions Afghanistan and Iraq, the destabilization of Syria, and the creation of “ISIS.” These are among the most significant events in recent world history, and yet they are also those much of the American public is wholly ignorant of. In an era where information and communication technologies are ubiquitous, prompting many to harbor the illusion of being well-informed, one must ask why this condition persists.

Further, why do prominent US journalists routinely fail to question other deep events that shape America’s tragic history over the past half century, such as the political assassinations of the 1960s, or the central role played by the CIA major role in international drug trafficking?

Popular and academic commentators have suggested various reasons for the almost universal failure of mainstream journalism in these areas, including newsroom sociology, advertising pressure, monopoly ownership, news organizations’ heavy reliance on “official” sources, and journalists’ simple quest for career advancement. There is also, no doubt, the influence of professional public relations maneuvers. Yet such a broad conspiracy of silence suggests another province of deception examined far too infrequently—specifically the CIA and similar intelligence agencies’ continued involvement in the news media to mold thought and opinion in ways scarcely imagined by the lay public.

The following historical and contemporary facts–by no means exhaustive–provides a glimpse of how the power such entities possess to influence if not determine popular memory and what respectable institutions deem to be the historical record.

  1. The CIA’s Operation MOCKINGBIRD is a long-recognised keystone among researchers pointing to the Agency’s clear interest in and relationship to major US news media. MOCKINGBIRD grew out of the CIA’s forerunner, the Office for Strategic Services (OSS, 1942-47), which during World War Two had established a network of journalists and psychological warfare experts operating primarily in the European theatre.
  2. Many of the relationships forged under OSS auspices were carried over into the postwar era through a State Department-run organization called the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) overseen by OSS staffer Frank Wisner.
  3. The OPC “became the fastest-growing unit within the nascent CIA,” historian Lisa Pease observes, “rising in personnel from 302 in 1949 to 2,812 in 1952, along with 3,142 overseas contract personnel. In the same period, the budget rose from $4.7 million to $82 million.” Lisa Pease, “The Media and the Assassination,” in James DiEugenio and Lisa Pease, The Assassinations: Probe Magazine on JFK, MLK, RFK and Malcolm X, Port Townsend, WA, 2003, 300.
  4. Like many career CIA officers, eventual CIA Director/Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) Richard Helms was recruited out of the press corps by his own supervisor at the United Press International’s Berlin Bureau to join in the OSS’s fledgling “black propaganda” program. “‘[Y]ou’re a natural,” Helms’ boss remarked. Richard Helms, A Look Over My Shoulder: A Life in the Central Intelligence Agency, New York: Random House, 2003, 30-31.
  5. Wisner tapped Marshall Plan funds to pay for his division’s early exploits, money his branch referred to as “candy.” “We couldn’t spend it all,” CIA agent Gilbert Greenway recalls. “I remember once meeting with Wisner and the comptroller. My God, I said, how can we spend that? There were no limits, and nobody had to account for it. It was amazing.” Frances Stonor Saunders, The Cultural Cold War: The CIA and the World of Arts and Letters, New York: The New Press, 2000, 105.
  6. When the OPC was merged with the Office of Special Operations in 1948 to create the CIA, OPC’s media assets were likewise absorbed.
  7. Wisner maintained the top secret “Propaganda Assets Inventory,” better known as “Wisner’s Wurlitzer”—a virtual rolodex of over 800 news and information entities prepared to play whatever tune Wisner chose. “The network included journalists, columnists, book publishers, editors, entire organizations such as Radio Free Europe, and stringers across multiple news organizations.” Pease, “The Media and the Assassination,” 300.
  8. A few years after Wisner’s operation was up-and-running he “’owned’ respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS, and other communication vehicles, plus stringers, four to six hundred in all, according to a CIA analyst. Each one was a separate ‘operation,’” investigative journalist Deborah Davis notes, “requiring a code name, a field supervisor, and a field office, at an annual cost of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars—there has never been an accurate accounting.” Deborah Davis, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and the Washington Post, Second Edition, Bethesda MD: National Press Inc, 1987, 139.
  9. Psychological operations in the form of journalism were perceived as necessary to influence and direct mass opinion, as well as elite perspectives. “[T]he President of the United States, the Secretary of State, Congressmen and even the Director of the CIA himself will read, believe, and be impressed by a report from Cy Sulzberger, Arnaud de Borchgrave, or Stewart Alsop when they don’t even bother to read a CIA report on the same subject,” noted CIA agent Miles Copeland. Cited in Pease, “The Media and the Assassination,” 301.
  10. By the mid-to-late 1950s, Darrell Garwood points out, the Agency sought to limit criticism directed against covert activity and bypass congressional oversight or potential judicial interference by “infiltrat[ing] the groves of academia, the missionary corps, the editorial boards of influential journal and book publishers, and any other quarters where public attitudes could be effectively influenced.” Darrell Garwood, Under Cover: Thirty-Five Years of CIA Deception, New York: Grove Press, 1985, 250.
  11. The CIA frequently intercedes in editorial decision-making. For example, when the Agency proceeded to wage an overthrow of the Arbenz regime in Guatemala in 1954, Allen and John Foster Dulles, President Eisenhower’s Secretary of State and CIA Director respectively, called upon New York Times publisher Arthur Hays Sulzberger to reassign reporter Sydney Gruson from Guatemala to Mexico City. Sulzberger thus placed Gruson in Mexico City with the rationale that some repercussions from the revolution might be felt in Mexico. Pease, “The Media and the Assassination,” 302.
  12. Since the early 1950s the CIA “has secretly bankrolled numerous foreign press services, periodicals and newspapers—both English and foreign language—which provided excellent cover for CIA operatives,” Carl Bernstein reported in 1977. “One such publication was the Rome Daily American, forty percent of which was owned by the CIA until the 1970s.” Carl Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media,” Rolling Stone, October 20, 1977.
  13. The CIA exercised informal liaisons with news media executives, in contrast to its relationships with salaried reporters and stringers, “who were much more subject to direction from the Agency” according to Bernstein. “A few executives—Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the New York Times among them—signed secrecy agreements. But such formal understandings were rare: relationships between Agency officials and media executives were usually social—’The P and Q Street axis in Georgetown,’ said one source. ‘You don’t tell William Paley to sign a piece of paper saying he won’t fink.’” Director of CBS William Paley’s personal “friendship with CIA Director Dulles is now known to have been one of the most influential and significant in the communications industry,” author Debora Davis explains. “He provided cover for CIA agents, supplied out-takes of news film, permitted the debriefing of reporters, and in many ways set the standard for the cooperation between the CIA and major broadcast companies which lasted until the mid-1970s.” Deborah Davis, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and the Washington Post, Second Edition, Bethesda MD: National Press Inc, 1987, 175.
  14. “The Agency’s relationship with the Times was by far its most valuable among newspapers, according to CIA officials,” Bernstein points out in his key 1977 article. “From 1950 to 1966, about ten CIA employees were provided Times cover under arrangements approved by the newspaper’s late publisher, Arthur Hays Sulzberger. The cover arrangements were part of a general Times policy—set by Sulzberger—to provide assistance to the CIA whenever possible.” In addition, Sulzberger was a close friend of CIA Director Allen Dulles. “’At that level of contact it was the mighty talking to the mighty,’ said a high‑level CIA official who was present at some of the discussions. ‘There was an agreement in principle that, yes indeed, we would help each other. The question of cover came up on several occasions. It was agreed that the actual arrangements would be handled by subordinates…. The mighty didn’t want to know the specifics; they wanted plausible deniability.’” Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  15. CBS’s Paley worked reciprocally with the CIA, allowing the Agency to utilize network resources and personnel. “It was a form of assistance that a number of wealthy persons are now generally known to have rendered the CIA through their private interests,” veteran broadcast journalist Daniel Schorr wrote in 1977. “It suggested to me, however, that a relationship of confidence and trust had existed between him and the agency.” Schorr points to “clues indicating that CBS had been infiltrated.” For example, “A news editor remembered the CIA officer who used to come to the radio control room in New York in the early morning, and, with the permission of persons unknown, listened to CBS correspondents around the world recording their ‘spots’ for the ‘World News Roundup’ and discussing events with the editor on duty. Sam Jaffe claimed that when he applied in 1955 for a job with CBS, a CIA officer told him that he would be hired–which he subsequently was. He was told that he would be sent to Moscow–which he subsequently was; he was assigned in 1960 to cover the trial of U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers. [Richard] Salant told me,” Schorr continues, “that when he first became president of CBS News in 1961, a CIA case officer called saying he wanted to continue the ‘long standing relationship known to Paley and [CBS president Frank] Stanton, but Salant was told by Stanton there was no obligation that he knew of” (276). Schorr, Daniel. Clearing the Air, Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1977, 277, 276.
  16. National Enquirer publisher Gene Pope Jr. worked briefly on the CIA’s Italy desk in the early 1950s and maintained close ties with the Agency thereafter. Pope refrained from publishing dozens of stories with “details of CIA kidnappings and murders, enough stuff for a year’s worth of headlines” in order to “collect chits, IOUs,” Pope’s son writes. “He figured he’d never know when he might need them, and those IOUs would come in handy when he got to 20 million circulation. When that happened, he’d have the voice to be almost his own branch of government and would need the cover.” Paul David Pope, The Deeds of My Fathers: How My Grandfather and Father Built New York and Created the Tabloid World of Today, New York: Phillip Turner/Rowman & Littlefield, 2010, 309, 310.
  17. One explosive story Pope’s National Enquirer‘s refrained from publishing in the late 1970s centered on excerpts from a long-sought after diary of President Kennedy’s lover, Mary Pinchot Meyer, who was murdered on October 12, 1964. “The reporters who wrote the story were even able to place James Jesus Angleton, the CIA’s head of counterintelligence operations, at the scene.” Another potential story drew on “documents proving that [Howard] Hughes and the CIA had been connected for years and that the CIA was giving Hughes money to secretly fund, with campaign donations, twenty-seven congressmen and senators who sat on sub-committees critical to the agency. There are also fifty-three international companies named and sourced as CIA fronts .. and even a list of reporters for mainstream media organizations who were playing ball with the agency.” Pope, The Deeds of My Fathers, 309.
  18. Angleton, who oversaw the Agency counterintelligence branch for 25 years, “ran a completely independent group entirely separate cadre of journalist‑operatives who performed sensitive and frequently dangerous assignments; little is known about this group for the simple reason that Angleton deliberately kept only the vaguest of files.” Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  19. The CIA conducted a “formal training program” during the 1950s for the sole purpose of instructing its agents to function as newsmen. “Intelligence officers were ‘taught to make noises like reporters,’ explained a high CIA official, and were then placed in major news organizations with help from management. These were the guys who went through the ranks and were told ‘You’re going to he a journalist,’” the CIA official said.” The Agency’s preference, however, was to engage journalists who were already established in the industry. Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  20. Newspaper columnists and broadcast journalists with household names have been known to maintain close ties with the Agency. “There are perhaps a dozen well known columnists and broadcast commentators whose relationships with the CIA go far beyond those normally maintained between reporters and their sources,” Bernstein maintains. “They are referred to at the Agency as ‘known assets’ and can be counted on to perform a variety of undercover tasks; they are considered receptive to the Agency’s point of view on various subjects.” Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  21. Frank Wisner, Allen Dulles, and Washington Post publisher Phillip Graham were close associates, and the Post developed into one of the most influential news organs in the United States due to its ties with the CIA. The Post managers’ “individual relations with intelligence had in fact been the reason the Post Company had grown as fast as it did after the war,” Davis (172) observes. “[T]heir secrets were its corporate secrets, beginning with MOCKINGBIRD. Phillip Graham’s commitment to intelligence had given his friends Frank Wisner an interest in helping to make the Washington Post the dominant news vehicle in Washington, which they had done by assisting with its two most crucial acquisitions, the Times-Herald and WTOP radio and television stations.” Davis, Katharine the Great: Katharine Graham and the Washington Post, 172.
  22. In the wake of World War One the Woodrow Wilson administration placed journalist and author Walter Lippmann in charge of recruiting agents for the Inquiry, a first-of-its-kind ultra-secret civilian intelligence organization whose role involved ascertaining information to prepare Wilson for the peace negotiations, as well as identify foreign natural resources for Wall Street speculators and oil companies. The activities of this organization served as a prototype for the function eventually performed by the CIA, namely “planning, collecting, digesting, and editing the raw data,” notes historian Servando Gonzalez. “This roughly corresponds to the CIA’s intelligence cycle: planning and direction, collection, processing, production and analysis, and dissemination.” Most Inquiry members would later become members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Lippmann would go on to become the Washington Post’s best known columnists. Servando Gonzalez, Psychological Warfare and the New World Order: The Secret War Against the American People, Oakland, CA: Spooks Books, 2010, 50.
  23. The two most prominent US newsweeklies, Time and Newsweek, kept close ties with the CIA. “Agency files contain written agreements with former foreign correspondents and stringers for both the weekly newsmagazines,” according to Carl Bernstein. “Allen Dulles often interceded with his good friend, the late Henry Luce, founder of Time and Life magazines, who readily allowed certain members of his staff to work for the Agency and agreed to provide jobs and credentials for other CIA operatives who lacked journalistic experience.”  Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  24. In his autobiography former CIA officer E. Howard Hunt quotes Bernstein’s “The CIA and the Media” article at length. “I know nothing to contradict this report,” Hunt declares, suggesting the investigative journalist of Watergate fame didn’t go far enough. “Bernstein further identified some of the country’s top media executives as being valuable assets to the agency … But the list of organizations that cooperated with the agency was a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of the media industry, including ABC, NBC, the Associated Press, UPI, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Newsweek magazine, and others.” E. Howard Hunt, American Spy: My Secret History in the CIA, Watergate, and Beyond, Hoboken NJ: John Wiley & Sons, 2007, 150.
  25. When the first major exposé of the CIA emerged in 1964 with the publication of The Invisible Government by journalists David Wise and Thomas B. Ross, the CIA considered purchasing the entire printing to keep the book from the public, yet in the end judged against it. “To an extent that is only beginning to be perceived, this shadow government is shaping the lives of 190,000,000 Americans” authors Wise and Ross write in the book’s preamble. “Major decisions involving peace and war are taking place out of public view. An informed citizen might come to suspect that the foreign policy of the United States often works publicly in one direction and secretly through the Invisible Government in just the opposite direction.”Lisa Pease, “When the CIA’s Empire Struck Back,” Consortiumnews.com, February 6, 2014.
  26. Agency infiltration of the news media shaped public perception of deep events and undergirded the official explanations of such events. For example, the Warren Commission’s report on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination was met with almost unanimous approval by US media outlets. “I have never seen an official report greeted with such universal praise as that accorded the Warren Commission’s findings when they were made public on September 24, 1964,” recalls investigative reporter Fred Cook. “All the major television networks devoted special programs and analyses to the report; the next day the newspapers ran long columns detailing its findings, accompanied by special news analyses and editorials. The verdict was unanimous. The report answered all questions, left no room for doubt. Lee Harvey Oswald, alone and unaided, had assassinated the president of the United States.” Fred J. Cook, Maverick: Fifty Years of Investigative Reporting, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1984, 276.
  27. In late 1966 the New York Times began an inquiry on the numerous questions surrounding President Kennedy’s assassination that were not satisfactorily dealt with by the Warren Commission. “It was never completed,” author Jerry Policoff observes, “nor would the New York Times ever again question the findings of the Warren Commission.” When the story was being developed the lead reporter at the Times‘ Houston bureau “said that he and others came up with ‘a lot of unanswered questions’ that the Times didn’t bother to pursue. ‘I’d be off on a good lead and then somebody’d call me off and send me out to California on another story or something. We never really detached anyone for this. We weren’t really serious.’” Jerry Policoff, “The Media and the Murder of John Kennedy,” in Peter Dale Scott, Paul L. Hoch and Russell Stetler, eds., The Assassinations: Dallas and Beyond, New York: Vintage, 1976, 265.
  28. When New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison embarked on an investigation of the JFK assassination in 1966 centering on Lee Harvey Oswald’s presence in New Orleans in the months leading up to November, 22, 1963, “he was cross-whipped with two hurricane blasts, one from Washington and one from New York,” historian James DiEugenio explains. The first, of course, was from the government, specifically the Central Intelligence Agency, the FBI, and to a lesser extent, the White House. The blast from New York was from the major mainstream media e.g. Time-Life and NBC. Those two communication giants were instrumental in making Garrison into a lightening rod for ridicule and criticism. This orchestrated campaign … was successful in diverting attention from what Garrison was uncovering by creating controversy about the DA himself.”  DiEugenio, Preface, in William Davy, Let Justice Be Done: New Light on the Jim Garrison Investigation, Reston VA: Jordan Publishing, 1999.
  29. The CIA and other US intelligence agencies used the news media to sabotage Garrison’s 1966-69 independent investigation of the Kennedy assassination. Garrison presided over the only law enforcement agency with subpoena power to seriously delve into the intricate details surrounding JFK’s murder. One of Garrison’s key witnesses, Gordon Novel, fled New Orleans to avoid testifying before the Grand Jury assembled by Garrison. According to DiEugenio, CIA Director Allen “Dulles and the Agency would begin to connect the fugitive from New Orleans with over a dozen CIA friendly journalists who—in a blatant attempt to destroy Garrison’s reputation—would proceed to write up the most outrageous stories imaginable about the DA.” James DiEugenio, Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba, and The Garrison Case, Second Edition, New York: SkyHorse Publishing, 2012, 235.
  30. CIA officer Victor Marchetti recounted to author William Davy that in 1967 while attending staff meetings as an assistant to then-CIA Director Richard Helms, “Helms expressed great concerns over [former OSS officer, CIA operative and primary suspect in Jim Garrison’s investigation Clay] Shaw’s predicament, asking his staff, ‘Are we giving them all the help we can down there?’” William Davy, Let Justice Be Done: New Light on the Jim Garrison Investigation, Reston VA: Jordan Publishing, 1999.
  31. The pejorative dimensions of the term “conspiracy theory” were introduced into the Western lexicon by CIA “media assets,” as evidenced in the design laid out by Document 1035-960 Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report, an Agency communiqué issued in early 1967 to Agency bureaus throughout the world at a time when attorney Mark Lane’s Rush to Judgment was atop bestseller lists and New Orleans DA Garrison’s investigation of the Kennedy assassination began to gain traction.
  32. Time had close relations with the CIA stemming from the friendship of the magazine’s publisher Henry Luce and Eisenhower CIA chief Allen Dulles. When former newsman Richard Helms was appointed DCI in 1966 he “began to cultivate the press,” prompting journalists toward conclusions that placed the Agency in a positive light. As Time Washington correspondent Hugh Sidney recollects, “‘[w]ith [John] McCone and [Richard] Helms, we had a set-up when the magazine was doing something on the CIA, we went to them and put it before them … We were never misled.’ Similarly, when Newsweek decided in the fall of 1971 to do a cover story on Richard Helms and ‘The New Espionage,’ the magazine, according to a Newsweek staffer, went directly to the agency for much of the information. And the article … generally reflected the line that Helms was trying so hard to sell: that since the latter 1960s … the focus of attention and prestige within CIA’ had switched from the Clandestine Services to the analysis of intelligence, and that ‘the vast majority of recruits are bound for’ the Intelligence Directorate.” Victor Marchetti and John D. Marks, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974, 362-363.
  33. In 1970 Jim Garrison wrote and published the semi-autobiographical A Heritage of Stone, a work that examines how the New Orleans DA “discovered that the CIA operated within the borders of the United States, and how it took the CIA six months to reply to the Warren Commission’s question of whether Oswald and [Jack] Ruby had been with the Agency,” Garrison biographer and Temple University humanities professor Joan Mellen observes. “In response to A Heritage of Stone, the CIA rounded up its media assets” and the book was panned by reviewers writing for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago Sun Times, and Life magazine. “John Leonard’s New York Times review went through a metamorphosis,” Mellen explains. “The original last paragraph challenged the Warren Report: ‘Something stinks about this whole affair,’ Leonard wrote. ‘Why were Kennedy’s neck organs not examined at Bethesda for evidence of a frontal shot? Why was his body whisked away to Washington before the legally required Texas inquest? Why?’ This paragraph evaporated in later editions of the Times. A third of a column gone, the review then ended: ‘Frankly I prefer to believe that the Warren Commission did a poor job, rather than a dishonest one. I like to think that Garrison invents monsters to explain incompetence.’” Joan Mellen, A Farewell to Justice: Jim Garrison, JFK’s Assassination, and the Case That Should Have Changed History, Washington DC: Potomac Books, 2005, 323, 324.
  34. CIA Deputy Director for Plans Cord Meyer Jr. appealed to Harper & Row president emeritus Cass Canfield Sr. over the book publisher’s pending release of Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, based on the author’s fieldwork and Yale PhD dissertation wherein he examined the CIA’s explicit role in the opium trade. “Claiming my book was a threat to national security,” McCoy recalls, “the CIA official had asked Harper & Row to suppress it. To his credit, Mr. Canfield had refused. But he had agreed to review the manuscript prior to publication.” Alfred W. McCoy, The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade, Chicago Review Press, 2003, xx.
  35. Publication of The Secret Team, a book by US Air Force Colonel and Pentagon-CIA liaison L. Fletcher Prouty recounting the author’s firsthand knowledge of CIA black operations and espionage, was met with a wide scale censorship campaign in 1972. “The campaign to kill the book was nationwide and world-wide,” Prouty notes. “It was removed from the Library of Congress and from college libraries as letters I received attested all too frequently … I was a writer whose book had been cancelled by a major publisher [Prentice Hall] and a major paperback publisher [Ballantine Books] under the persuasive hand of the CIA.” L. Fletcher Prouty, The Secret Team: The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World, New York: SkyHorse Publishing, 2008, xii, xv.
  36. During the Pike Committee hearings in 1975 Congressman Otis Pike asked DCI William Colby, “Do you have any people paid by the CIA who are working for television networks?” Colby responded, “This, I think, gets into the kind of details, Mr. Chairman, that I’d like to get into in executive session.” Once the chamber was cleared Colby admitted that in 1975 specifically “the CIA was using ‘media cover’ for eleven agents, many fewer than in the heyday of the cloak-and-pencil operations, but no amount of questioning would persuade him to talk about the publishers and network chieftains who had cooperated at the top.” Schorr, Clearing the Air, 275.
  37. “There is quite an incredible spread of relationships,” former CIA intelligence officer William Bader informed a US Senate Intelligence Committee investigating the CIA’s infiltration of the nation’s journalistic outlets. “You don’t need to manipulate Time magazine, for example, because there are Agency people at the management level.” Bernstein, “The CIA and the Media.”
  38. In 1985 film historian and professor Joseph McBride came across a November 29, 1963 memorandum from J. Edgar Hoover, titled, “Assassination of President John F. Kennedy,” wherein the FBI director stated that his agency provided two individuals with briefings, one of whom was “Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency.” ” When McBride queried the CIA with the memo a “PR man was tersely formal and opaque: ‘I can neither confirm nor deny.’ It was the standard response the agency gave when it dealt with its sources and methods,” journalist Russ Baker notes. When McBride published a story in The Nation, “The Man Who Wasn’t There, ‘George Bush,’ C.I.A. Operative,” the CIA came forward with a statement that the George Bush referenced in the FBI record “apparently” referenced a George William Bush, who filled a perfunctory night shift position at CIA headquarters that “would have been the appropriate place to receive such a report.” McBride tracked down George William Bush to confirm he was only employed briefly as a “probationary civil servant” who had “never received interagency briefings.” Shortly thereafter The Nation ran a second story by McBride wherein “the author provided evidence that the Central Intelligence Agency had foisted a lie on the American people … As with McBride’s previous story, this disclosure was greeted with the equivalent of a collective media yawn.” Since the episode researchers have found documents linking George H. W. Bush to the CIA as early as 1953. Russ Baker, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years, New York: Bloomsbury Press, 2009, 7-12.
  39. Operation Gladio, the well-documented collaboration between Western spy agencies, including the CIA, and NATO involving coordinated terrorist shootings and bombings of civilian targets throughout Europe from the late 1960s through the 1980s, has been effectively expunged from major mainstream news outlets. A LexisNexis Academic search conducted in 2012 for “Operation Gladio” retrieved 31 articles in English language news media—most appearing in British newspapers. Only four articles discussing Gladio ever appeared in US publications—three in the New York Times and one brief mention in the Tampa Bay Times. With the exception of a 2009 BBC documentary, no network or cable news broadcast has ever referenced the state-sponsored terror operation. Almost all of the articles referencing Gladio appeared in 1990 when Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti publicly admitted Italy’s participation in the process. The New York Times downplayed any US involvement, misleadingly designating Gladio “an Italian creation” in a story buried on page A16. In reality, former CIA director William Colby revealed in his memoirs that covert paramilitaries were a significant agency undertaking set up after World War II, including “the smallest possible coterie of the most reliable people, in Washington [and] NATO.” James F. Tracy, “False Flag Terror and Conspiracies of Silence,” Global Research, August 10, 2012.
  40. Days before the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City DCI William Colby confided to his friend, Nebraska State Senator John DeCamp his personal concerns over the Militia and Patriot movement within the United States, then surging in popularity due to the use of the alternative media of that era–books, periodicals, cassette tapes, and radio broadcasts. “I watched as the Anti-War movement rendered it impossible for this country to conduct or win the Vietnam War,” Colby remarked. “I tell you, dear friend, that the Militia and Patriot movement in which, as an attorney, you have become one of the centerpieces, is far more significant and far more dangerous for American than the Anti-War movement ever was, if it is not intelligently dealt with. And I really mean this.” David Hoffman, The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Politics of Terror, Venice CA: Feral House, 1998, 367.
  41. Shortly after the appearance of journalist Gary Webb’s “Dark Alliance” series in the San Jose Mercury News chronicling the Agency’s involvement in drug trafficking, the CIA’s public affairs division embarked on a campaign to counter what it termed “a genuine public relations crisis for the Agency.” Webb was merely reporting to a large audience what had already been well documented by scholars such as Alfred McCoy and Peter Dale Scott, and the 1989 Kerry Committee Report on Iran-Contra—that the CIA had long been involved in the illegal transnational drug trade. Such findings were upheld in 1999 in a study by the CIA inspector general. Nevertheless, beginning shortly after Webb’s series ran, “CIA media spokesmen would remind reporters seeking comment that this series represented no real news,” a CIA internal organ noted, “in that similar charges were made in the 1980s and were investigated by the Congress and were found to be without substance. Reporters were encouraged to read the “Dark Alliance’ series closely and with a critical eye to what allegations could actually be backed with evidence.” http://www.foia.cia.gov/sites/default/files/DOC_0001372115.pdf
  42. On December 10, 2004 investigative journalist Gary Webb died of two .38 caliber gunshot wounds to the head. The coroner ruled the death a suicide. “Gary Webb was MURDERED,” concluded FBI senior special agent Ted Gunderson in 2005. “He (Webb) resisted the first shot [to the head that exited via jaw] so he was shot again with the second shot going into the head [brain].” Gunderson regards the theory that Webb could have managed to shoot himself twice as “impossible!” Charlene Fassa, “Gary Webb: More Pieces in the Suicided Puzzle,” Rense.com, December 11, 2005.
  43. The most revered journalists who receive “exclusive” information and access to the corridors of power are typically the most subservient to officialdom and often have intelligence ties. Those granted such access understand that they must likewise uphold government-sanctioned narratives. For example, the New York Times’ Tom Wicker reported on November 22, 1963 that President John F. Kennedy “was hit by a bullet in the throat, just below the Adam’s apple.” Yet his account went to press before the official story of a single assassin shooting from the rear became established. Wicker was chastised through “lost access, complaints to editors and publishers, social penalties, leaks to competitors, a variety of responses no one wants.” Barrie Zwicker, Towers of Deception: The Media Coverup of 9/11, Gabrioloa Island, BC: New Society Publishers, 2006, 169-170.
  44. The CIA actively promotes a desirable public image of its history and function by advising the production of Hollywood vehicles, such as Argo and Zero Dark Thirty. The Agency retains “entertainment industry liaison officers” on its staff that “plant positive images about itself (in other words, propaganda) through our most popular forms of entertainment,” Tom Hayden explains in the LA Review of Books. “So natural has the CIA–entertainment connection become that few question its legal or moral ramifications. This is a government agency like no other; the truth of its operations is not subject to public examination. When the CIA’s hidden persuaders influence a Hollywood movie, it is using a popular medium to spin as favorable an image of itself as possible, or at least, prevent an unfavorable one from taking hold.” Tom Hayden, “Review of The CIA in Hollywood: How the Agency Shapes Film and Television by Tricia Jenkins,” LA Review of Books, February 24, 2013,
  45. Former CIA case officer Robert David Steele states that CIA manipulation of news media is “worse” in the 2010s than in the late 1970s when Bernstein wrote “The CIA and the Media.” “The sad thing is that the CIA is very able to manipulate [the media] and it has financial arrangements with media, with Congress, with all others. But the other half of that coin is that the media is lazy.” James Tracy interview with Robert David Steele, August 2, 2014,
  46. A well-known fact is that broadcast journalist Anderson Cooper interned for the CIA while attending Yale as an undergraduate in the late 1980s. According to Wikipedia Cooper’s great uncle, William Henry Vanderbilt III, was an Executive Officer of the Special Operations Branch of the OSS under the spy organization’s founder William “Wild Bill” Donovan. While Wikipedia is an often dubious source, Vanderbilt’s OSS involvement would be in keeping with the OSS/CIA reputation of taking on highly affluent personnel for overseas derring-do. William Henry Vanderbilt III, Wikipedia.
  47. Veteran German journalist Udo Ulfkotte, author of the 2014 book Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists) revealed how under the threat of job termination he was routinely compelled to publish articles written by intelligence agents using his byline. “I ended up publishing articles under my own name written by agents of the CIA and other intelligence services, especially the German secret service,” Ulfkotte explained in a recent interview with Russia Today. “German Journo: European Media Writing Pro-US Stories Under CIA Pressure,” RT, October 18, 2014.
  48. In 1999 the CIA established In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm seeking to “identify and invest in companies developing cutting-edge information technologies that serve United States national security interests.” The firm has exercised financial relationships with internet platforms Americans use on a routine basis, including Google and Facebook. “If you want to keep up with Silicon Valley, you need to become part of Silicon Valley,” says Jim Rickards, an adviser to the U.S. intelligence community familiar with In-Q-Tel’s activities. “The best way to do that is have a budget because when you have a checkbook, everyone comes to you.” At one point IQT “catered largely to the needs of the CIA.” Today, however, “the firm supports many of the 17 agencies within the U.S. intelligence community, including the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate.” Matt Egan, “In-Q-Tel: A Glimpse Inside the CIA’s Venture Capital Arm,” FoxBusiness.com, June 14, 2013.
  49. At a 2012 conference held by In-Q-Tel CIA Director David Patraeus declared that the rapidly-developing “internet of things” and “smart home” will provide the CIA with the ability to spy on any US citizen should they become a “person of interest’ to the spy community,” Wired magazine reports. “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,’ Patraeus enthused, ‘particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft’ … ‘Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Patraeus said, “the latter now going to cloud computing, in many areas greater and greater supercomputing, and, ultimately, heading to quantum computing.” Spencer Ackerman, “CIA Chief: We’ll Spy on You Through Your Dishwasher,” Wired, March 15, 2012.
  50. In the summer of 2014 a $600 million computing cloud developed by Amazon Web Services for the CIA began servicing all 17 federal agencies comprising the intelligence community. “If the technology plays out as officials envision,” The Atlantic reports, “it will usher in a new era of cooperation and coordination, allowing agencies to share information and services much more easily and avoid the kind of intelligence gaps that preceded the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.” “The Details About the CIA’s Deal With Amazon,” The Atlantic, July 17, 2014.

Who Is Jeb Bush, Really? – Part 2 – Jeb’s PNAC And Money Laundering Past (VIDEO)

Jeb Bush has past involvement with neocon think tank PNAC, and CIA drug money laundering.

Jeb Bush has past involvement with neocon think tank PNAC, and CIA drug money laundering.

Who is Jeb Bush? The elite establishment who control the MSM (Mainstream Media) are ensuring through their biased media coverage that US 2016 presidential hopeful Jeb Bush becomes the frontrunning candidate for the Republican Party. As he more and more enters the limelight and the consciousness of the average US voter, many will be wondering – who is Jeb Bush, really? Part 1 dealt with the history of the Bush crime family, as well as Jeb’s probable involvement with CIA drug smuggling. Part 2 of this series takes a deeper look at other aspects of Jeb Bush’s past, such as his involvement with PNAC and drug money laundering.

Jeb Bush, PNAC and 9/11 Foreknowledge

Jeb Bush and his PNAC neocon pals got their new Pearl Harbor with 3000 American deaths. We got the fake War on Terror.

Jeb Bush and his PNAC neocon pals got their new Pearl Harbor with 3000 American deaths. We got the fake War on Terror.

PNAC (The Project for a New American Century) was the neocon (neoconservative) think tank group set up in the late 1990s to push the war agenda, specifically to push, unashamedly, for the US to continue its imperialist ambitions. It wanted nothing less than total American supremacy across the globe. It advocated more money for the military, more invasions, more foreign military bases, more war. Unsurprisingly, PNAC had a strong Zionist influence so of course it was pro-Israel. The PNAC membership is really staggering; it reads like a “Who’s Who” of American elite New World Order conspirators, such as Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Robert Kagan, I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby, Richard Perle, Doug Feith and others. As this PNAC document shows, Jeb Bush was also a member. PNAC was replaced by the new think-tank Foreign Policy Initiative, co-founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan in 2009.

One of the most famous and nefarious passages from any PNAC document is this oft-quoted one from Rebuilding America’s Defenses, talking about how changing America may take a long time, unless a big “catastrophic” event was to occur:

“This process of transformation is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”

This was written before 9/11. Are we supposed to believe it’s just a coincidence that PNAC and other criminal elements within the US Government got their new Pearl Harbor just afterwards? What are the chances that Jeb Bush had no 9/11 foreknowledge, given that he was a member of PNAC, that his brother George was US President and supposedly in charge of US air defense at the time (although that may have been left to another PNAC member, then VP Dick Cheney), and that his other brother Marvin Bush as mentioned in part 1 was in charge of the electronic security system of the Twin Towers? Does anyone smell a rat here?

Jeb Bush and Drug Money Laundering

Jeb Bush helped with CIA drug money laundering through his bank in Florida, City National Bank of Miami.

Jeb Bush helped with CIA drug money laundering through his bank in Florida, City National Bank of Miami.

We know that Jeb Bush has close ties with the CIA in his past. Thanks to the investigate research of Wayne Madsen, we also know that Jeb was doing a bit more than just importing coffee during his banking time in Florida. According to Madsen:

“Jeb should fully explain his relationship with Alberto Duque, a Colombian national who laundered drug money for the Medellin and Cali narco-cartels and Nicaraguan contras while serving as owner of City National Bank of Miami and president of the General Coffee Company of Colombia … Duque financed a $30 million real estate development project run by Jeb Bush. In 1983, Duque was convicted for fraud and sent to federal prison. Duque hired a Bush family CIA crony to serve as City National Bank’s president … Don Beazley, who previously worked for the CIA’s Nugan Hand Bank in Australia. Before it collapsed, Nugan Hand was responsible for laundering money from the CIA’s Golden Triangle opium and heroin smuggling operations from Southeast Asia’s Golden Triangle and paying off U.S. surrogates in Asia, including Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, Suharto in Indonesia, Park Chung Hee in South Korea, and various Thai generals.”

The elite always use their office to dole out personal favors or pay back those that got them into power. When he was Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush funneled US$1.7 billion of Florida’s state pension funds through investment banking institutions such as the Lehman Brothers, Carlyle Group, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, UBS, J.P. Morgan, etc. who were the fundraisers of George W. Bush’s presidential campaigns. Jeb Bush is a man who wouldn’t rule out torture. Jeb Bush is man who doesn’t like the average person to have access to encryption. Jeb Bush is a man who would be happy to continue George W. Bush’s disastrous and highly illegal foreign wars, claiming that the US must maintain its “unequal military strength” or military supremacy.

Who is Jeb Bush? The Same as Hillary Clinton

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are the latest reps from America’s modern mafia crime families.

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are the latest reps from America’s modern mafia crime families.

Given the elite control over the political process and the mainstream media, you can be pretty sure that any mainstream candidates given good coverage and press are not going to be very different on key issues. In fact, as this article from Jake Anderson on Global Research shows, Bush and Clinton are identical on all the important issues facing the US. Jeb and Hillary are being funded by the exact same people! Both Jeb and Hillary both support giant corporations (and get support from the very same corporations to the tune of millions), the current Rothschild-Rockefeller Federal Reserve banking system, more empire-building wars for imperialist America, the Patriot Act, NSA mass surveillance, fracking, GMOs (and the prevention of GMO labeling), secret trade treaties like the TPP and even the death penalty! Could it be any clearer that Jeb and Hillary are utter tyrants, when they believe the nameless entity of Government has the right to take away your life? The Clintons by the way are up to their necks and beyond in corruption, crime and dead bodies just like the Bushes. The Bushes and Clintons are America’s modern day mafia crime families.

Jeb Bush = More of the Same Crime

Politics has been likened to pro-wrestling: the result is never in doubt and has already been pre-determined (however wrestling has more chance of a spontaneous outcome!). If Americans vote in Jeb Bush, it’s going to mean more of the same crime: more wars, more corporate cronyism and corporate welfare, more surveillance and more corruption, while less choice, less privacy and less freedom. Let’s hope the average US voter has enough wisdom not to vote for continuing the oligarchy … remember, there has been either a Bush or Clinton in the White House from 1980-2012 – that’s 32 straight years!

As he enters more and more the limelight and the consciousness of the average US voter, many will be wondering – who is Jeb Bush, really? This series takes a deeper look at the latest bloodline Bush foisted upon the American people in a “free and democratic” election.

Who is Jeb Bush? The Latest Bush in a Long Line of Treason

The Bush family is one of the most notorious and nefarious American families ever to rise to power in the USA. The list of their deception, thievery and murder stretches all the way back to the early 1900s. For an in-depth investigation into their criminality, listen to The Freedom Link’s The Bush Family: Four Generations of Treason!. Here is a brief snapshot of their family history, starting with Samuel Bush:

who-is-jeb-bush-5– Samuel Bush, father of Prescott Bush, grandfather of George H.W. Bush and great-grandfather of George W. Bush, Marvin Bush and Jeb Bush, becomes General Manager of Buckeye Steel Castings Company which manufactured railway parts. At the time it was run by Frank Rockefeller, brother of oil tycoon and elite kingpin John D. Rockefeller – the same guy that started the Rockefeller oil empire, the Big Pharma cartel and ultimately, in a big way, allopathy or Western Medicine.

– Samuel Bush becomes President of Buckeye in 1908 when Rockefeller retires, staying there until 1927 and according to Wikipedia becoming one of the top industrialists of his generation. During this time his clients include the Harrimans, since the US railroads were controlled by E. H. Harriman. Thus the Bush family begins to do business and rub shoulders with the Harriman and Rockefellers families, 2 major elite bloodlines. When WW1 breaks out, Bush also forms an alliance with the Remington family through arms manufacturing. Joe Joseph, Tim Watts, and John King of the abovementioned The Freedom Link radio shows estimate that during WW1 Samuel Bush and his cronies profited to the tune of US$200,000,000 or $200 million. This equates to around $3.1 billion in today’s money, according to this site.

who-is-jeb-bush-6– Samuel’s son Prescott Bush, through banks owned by the Harriman brothers (E. Roland and W. Averill), traded with the Nazis before and during WW2. The US Government declassified documents proving it. Hitler’s rise to power was aided by Wall St. bankers. Prescott was involved in the failed coup d’etat of 1934 to militarily take control of the US Government, where the plan was to overthrow FDR and install a fascist dictator in line with the ideologies of Hitler and Mussolini. Fortunately Marine Corps Major-General Smedley Butler, the man who famously declared that “War is a Racket”, blew the whistle on the Business Plot and refused to go along with it.

– Prescott’s son George Herbert Walker Bush or George H. W. Bush rises to power through his company Zapata oil. He rubs shoulders with the Dulles brothers, lawyers of the Rockefellers, who also had deep ties to Hitler and the Nazis. John Dulles worked in the Eisenhower administration, while Allen Dulles became head of the newly-formed CIA. There is a lot of evidence linking George H. W. Bush to the assassination of JFK.

who-is-jeb-bush-4-215x300– George H. W. Bush goes on to become head of the CIA and US President. He invades numerous poor and developing 3rd world nations to ensure US corporations can steal their resources and set up military bases, oversees CIA drug and gun running operations, and personally supervises that large quantities of cocaine get shipped into the US via the Mena, Arkansas airstrip (with a little help from his partner in crime Bill Clinton). Mind control victims such as Cathy O’Brien (and others) accuse George H. W. of being a sadistic rapist and serial killer, claiming Bush repeatedly raped her and her young daughter, and ordered mind-controlled soldiers to kill themselves. George H. W. publicly calls for a New World Order on September 11th, 1991. He is also part of the Satanic black magic rituals of Bohemian Grove and Skull ‘n’ Bones secret societies.

– George H. W. Bush’s son and Jeb Bush’s brother, George W. Bush, sets the record for the mentally-challenged US President (maybe due to all the Illuminati inbreeding). He oversees the most daring false flag operation of all, 9/11, passes horrible legislation like the Patriot Act to eviscerate the Bill of Rights, sets up the loathed DHS and TSA, propagates the massive and fake war on terror, and invades countries like Iraq and Afghanistan – despite admitting they had nothing to do with 9/11. Incidentally, George W. Bush’s brother Marvin Bush was the director of the electronic security system in the twin towers. He also removed the bomb searching dogs from duty 1 month prior to 9/11. Just a coincidence … nothing to worry about.

So, in summary, there are at least 4 generations of Bushes who have been involved in starting and/or funding sides in both World Wars, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, numerous CIA wars, the Gulf War and the fake never-ending War on Terror, not to mention drug smuggling and illegal funding on “contra” terrorists in Iran and Nicaragua. So when considering “Who is Jeb Bush?”, it’s good to know the lineage he comes from.

Who is Jeb Bush? A Criminal Past of CIA Drug Smuggling and CIA Contra-Funding

George W. Bush passed the ball to Obama. Is Obama about to pass it forward to Jeb Bush?

George W. Bush passed the ball to Obama. Is Obama about to pass it forward to Jeb Bush?

Let us now turn our attention to Jeb Bush. Who is Jeb Bush? Is he, or has he been, involved in any of his family’s dubious and criminal enterprises? Unfortunately the answer seems to be yes. The CIA drug smuggling activities of the 1980s was related to the “Contras” – both the Iranian Contras and the Nicaraguan Contras. In the case of Iran, the elite were trying to get a foothold in a country that was close to Russia for geopolitical purposes. In the case of Nicaragua, the CIA were trying to topple a 3rd world nation government that wasn’t friendly to the US in exchange for one which would toe the line. Money from the weapon sales, thanks in large part to Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North of the National Security Council in late 1985, was diverted to fund anti-Sandinista and anti-communist rebels, or Contras in Nicaragua.

There is strong evidence that Jeb, like his father and brother, was involved in CIA drug smuggling and the murder of CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal in 1986. According to this article on Daily Kos:

“Barry Seal was a legendary CIA drug smuggler and ace pilot who had literally worked for the Agency since he was a teenage pilot prodigy in the late 1950s. By 1986 Barry Seal was having legal problems (criminal and a huge IRS tax liability) that not even his CIA connections could protect him from and according to Seal’s lawyer Lewis Unglesby, Barry Seal was a threat to testify against Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush. In fact, in early 1986 Barry Seal was threatening GHW Bush to get the IRS off his back or he (Seal) was going to blow the whistle on the Contra scheme and CIA drug smuggling.”

If you threaten someone like George H. W. Bush, you can guess what’s going to happen. The article further quotes former CIA agent Chip Tatum, who had known Seal and shared confidences with him, “listening with amusement the first time we breathlessly relayed what we’d discovered: that Oliver North is guilty in the assassination of Barry Seal … “No shit, Sherlock,” he replied, laughing. “It ain’t exactly the secret of the century, I can tell you.”” Here are some quotes from The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider, written by Al Martin:

“In this discussion, I had mentioned the recent assassination, only a few days before, of Barry Seal [Feb, 1986, outside his halfway house in New Orleans]. I said to Jeb, “Isn’t it convenient that Barry Seal was assassinated when he was? And now suddenly all the information and documents he had are gone missing?” Jeb had a rather broad smile on his face, and he concurred that it was convenient. He added a little snicker – as he often had a tendency of doing. Also little beads of sweat formed on his forehead, as when he gets nervous. It’s something you can notice when he’s on television. He still has a tendency to have little beads of sweat around his forehead, when he is either lying about something, or he’s nervous about what someone is saying.”

Part 2 of this “Who is Jeb Bush?” series will be taking a look at aspects of Jeb’s past, including his links to PNAC (Project for a New American Century) which conveniently prophesized a 9/11-type attack before it occurred …

ISIS Fraud Exposed! Leaked Video Appears To Show The Staged Killing Of James Foley (VIDEOS)


By: James Robertson | Crimes of Empire –

CyberBerkut (Google Translation):

We CyberBerkut received at the disposal of the file whose value can not be overstated!

Dear Senator McCain! We recommend you next time in foreign travel, and especially on the territory of Ukraine, not to take confidential documents.

On one of the devices of your colleagues, we found a lot of interesting things. Something we decided to put: this video should become the property of the international community!

LEAKED! ISIS Beheading Video Caught Filming In Studio!


The Cyber Berkut hacked video matches the James Foley proven fake killing to an extraordinary degree.

This almost seemed too good to be true but I found the above photo at Leak Source and the video of the IS studio filmed fake beheading scene matches in many ways and appears to be a film of the making of the fake James Foley execution video as the moving photograph above brilliantly demonstrates.

Many other small details from the James Foley video appear to match. These include the way the “Jihad John” character tucks his pants into his boots, along with the foreground landscape which differs between the fake execution videos. The Cyber Berkut hacking group claim they found the footage on the phone of a staffer of John McCain, a politician with extensive historical links to jihadist fighters and terror groups as this photograph and many others indicate.


US Senator John MCCain meets with takfiri jihadists fighters in Syria.circa 2012.

The man in the background next to McCain’s (as we see it) left shoulder is alleged to be the Caliph of the IS Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, who it is widely claimed is actually an Israeli agent real name Simon Elliot. Although all hard evidence of the supposed Caliph’s identity is cloaked in layers of misinformation.


The fake Caliph, the intensely pious man with a taste for the finer things!

The whole leader thing did not seem to work with the fake Caliph, he made only one personal appearance was widely mocked and might as well never have existed.

It was claimed that the Caliph was badly wounded in an air strike and was receiving treatment in an Israeli hospital. It was also claimed that he had died.

It is known that Israel provides medical and other assistance to both the IS group and the al Nusra front, it is in the UN reports, it is in the Jerusalem Post:

New UN report reveals collaboration between Israel and Syrian rebels – Middle East – Jerusalem Post.html

“Now, a report from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) reveals that Israel has been working closely with Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights and have kept close contact over the past 18 months. The report was submitted to the UN Security Council at the beginning of the month.”

“The documents show that Israel has been doing more than simply treating wounded Syrian civilians in hospitals. This and a few past reports have described transfer of unspecified supplies from Israel to the Syrian rebels, and sightings of IDF soldiers meeting with the Syrian opposition east of the green zone, as well as incidents when Israeli soldiers opened up the fence to allow Syrians through who did not appear to be injured.”

“The report said UNDOF “observed at least 10 wounded persons being transferred by armed members of the opposition from the Bravo side across the cease-fire line.”

The story about Baghdadi in Israel wounded or dead may well be true but there is a distinct lack of evidence in any direction.

The beheadings, the Jihad John videos on the other hand were an obvious psyop and fraud proven within days of the Foley release and the Cyber Berkut video only adds to an overwhelming body of evidence of fraud and deception.

Unmasking The Phoenix Program And America’s “War On Drugs” (VIDEO)


On this weeks Real Politik journalist and historian Douglas Valentine discusses his research that culminated in the landmark 1990 book The Phoenix Program–the definitive history of the CIA-led counterinsurgency and assassination campaign carried out in Vietnam during the late 1960s.

Phoenix was a major precursor to the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security in the post-9/11 era and remains a potential harbinger in light of domestic military exercises such as Jade Helm that has begun this week.

Valentine also discusses with James the inroads the CIA has made in drug trafficking and mass media since the late 1960s, noting that the CIA is essentially the “organized crime branch” of the US government that has institutionalized its practices to shield against another “Gary Webb” meltdown of the mid-1990s.


In addition to The Phoenix Program, Valentine is the author of several other notable books including The Strength of the Wolf: The Secret History of America’s War on Drugs (2004) and The Strength of the Pack: The Personalities, Politics and Espionage that Shaped the Drug Enforcement Agency (2008).  In addition to his historical research, Valentine is also a poet. His latest collection of poetry, With Our Eyes Wide Open: Poems of the New American Century, was published in 2014. See Douglas Valentine’s Author’s Page at Amazon for a more detailed list of titles.

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with James G. Connell III- attorney at the U.S Defence Department, who represents Aamar al-Baluchi. Aamar stands accused of financing 9/11, and the CIA-backed Hollywood film Zero Dark Thirty even based a character on him. James explains how Hollywood producers and directors works with the CIA, and why the U.S considers itself to be exempt from many human rights treaties.


Psychologists Aiding CIA Torture

Psychologists Aiding CIA Torture

Doctors were accused earlier of involvement in torture by:

• monitoring and participating directly in torture procedures;

• instructing interrogators to continue, adjust, or stop certain ones;

• informing detainees that medical treatment depended on their cooperation;

• performing medical checks before and after each transfer; and

• treating the effects of torture as well as ailments and injuries during incarceration.

Condoning or participating in torture grievously breaches core medical ethics and the 1975 World Medical Association (WMA) Declaration of Tokyo “Guidelines for Physicians Concerning Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment in Relation to Detention and Imprisonment.” It states:

• in all cases at all times, “physician(s) shall not countenance, condone or participate in” torture or other forms of abuse;

• they “shall not use nor allow to be used (their) medical knowledge or skills, or health information” to aid interrogation in any way;

• they “shall not be present during any procedure during which torture or any other forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment is used or threatened;”

• they “must have complete clinical independence” in treating persons in their care; and

• WMA encourages the international community and fellow physicians to support medical professionals who face “threats or reprisals resulting from a refusal to condone” all forms of torture and abuse.

Protocol I of the 1949 Geneva Conventions states:

“Persons engaged in medical activities shall neither be compelled to perform acts or to carry out work contrary to, nor be compelled to refrain from acts required by, the rules of medical ethics or other rules designed for the benefit of the wounded and sick, or this Protocol.”

On July 7, 2005 in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Gregg Bloche and Jonathan Marks published an article titled, “Doctors and Interrogators at Guantanamo Bay.”

They cited evidence showing when “(h)ealth information (was) routinely available to behavioral science consultants and others” engaged in interrogations, they acted in violation of strict medical ethics.

Since late 2002, psychiatrists and psychologists were involved in crafting extreme stress techniques “combined with behavior-shaping rewards to extract actionable intelligence from resistant captives,” the writers said.

“Wholesale disregard for clinical confidentiality” seriously breaches medical ethics “since it makes every caregiver into an accessory to intelligence gathering. (It) puts prisoners at greater risk for serious abuse.”

In July 2006, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) “Report(ed) on Torture and Cruel, Inhuman, and Degrading Treatment of Prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.” It included evidence of medical personnel involvement.

Detainees were told medical treatment depended on their cooperation. Prisoner medical records showed physicians were present during brutal interrogations constituting torture. They “authorized (them) to proceed.”

Prisoners described doctors performing unnecessary and abusive procedures, including forced amputations, after which they were denied proper treatment.

Psychiatrists and psychologists designed extreme interrogation techniques as part of the Behavioral Science Consultation Team (BSCT). It was tasked “to torment detainees.”

A new lengthy document titled “Report to the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of the American Psychological Association: Independent Review Relating to APA Ethics Guidelines, National Security Interrogations, and Torture” revealed top APA officials and its ethics director involved with justifying enhanced CIA interrogations known to involve torture.

Psychologists involved profited from torture-related contracts. Evidence shows APA officials collaborated with DoD to assure organization ethics policies effectively condoned what should have been condemned.

Collaboration is complicity with high crimes against humanity. APA officials and psychologists involved share guilt.

CIA torturers sought APA approval to counter concerns among its own medical professionals. Following the report’s release, former organization head Nadine Kaslow issued a statement, saying:

“The actions, policies and lack of independence from government influence described in the Hoffman report represented a failure to live up to our core values.”

“We profoundly regret and apologize for the behavior and the consequences that ensued.”

On July 8, APA ethics chief Stephen Behnke resigned once knowledge of his involvement was revealed, as well as getting a lucrative interrogator training contract – without notifying APA’s board.

Other resignations are expected to follow – not prosecutions of everyone involved to the highest levels in government, the military, CIA and private sector as a way to show impunity no longer protects torturers or others complicit with them.

The practice continues under Obama in dozens of US global black sites.

CIA Human Experimentation

Ceremonial Swearing-In Of Leon Panetta Is Held At CIA Headquarters

Since the early 1950s, CIA operatives conducted physically harsh and psychologically crippling mind control experiments. Human subjects were used as unwitting guinea pigs.

Rules governing CIA activities include Executive Order 12333 (1981) authorizing intrusive spying for counterintelligence purposes. Loophole-ridden provisions permit anything goes.

An ACLU FOIA lawsuit obtained more information on secret CIA domestic spying operations.

Woefully too little is known but more now than a few weeks ago, said the ACLU. Although CIA legal authority to spy at home is limited, earlier congressional investigative committees discovered massive “Operation CHAOS” spying – targeting anti-war activists and political dissenters.

For over 20 years, the CIA “indiscriminately intercepted and opened hundreds of thousands of Americans’ letters” lawlessly.

The (Senator Frank) Church Committee discovered major constitutional violations. It said “constitutional checks and balances have not adequately controlled intelligence activities.”

“(T)he Executive branch has neither delineated the scope of permissible activities nor established procedures for supervising intelligence agencies. Congress has failed to exercise sufficient oversight, seldom questioning the use to which its appropriations were being put.”

“Most domestic intelligence issues have not reached the courts, and in those cases when they have reached the courts, the judiciary has been reluctant to grapple with them.”

Church Committee findings and conclusions are more relevant today than ever. Released material was heavily redacted. More questions were raised than answered. It’s clear the CIA’s domestic activities way exceed its authority.

The Agency’s AR 2-2 regulatory document governing its intelligence activities was never released until now. It covers a wide range of activities – including:

• domestic spying;

• human experimentation;

• contracts with academic institutions;

• relations with journalists and media officials; and

• relations with clergy and missionaries.

Its synopsis states:

“This regulation and its annexes set forth the provisions of Executive Order 12333 and its implementing procedures governing the conduct of the Intelligence Community Staff, National Intelligence Emergency Support Office, and other staff elements of the Director of Central Intelligence.”

“Certain provisions of Executive Order 12333, such as those dealing with the collection of information on US persons, required implementing procedures established by the Director of Central Intelligence and approved by the Attorney General.”

“These procedures as well as other related materials are contained in the annexes to this regulation. This regulation also includes statutory and police requirements with respect to the conduct of intelligence activities, including the conduct of security investigations, certain relations with other Governmental entities, and relationships with US persons, US news media, US clergy, the US academic community, and employees of the Congress.”

Several AR 2-2 annexes contain Agency implementing procedures. Heavily redacted Annex A states:

“Guidance for CIA Activities Outside the United States” sets forth the procedures that apply to CIA activity directed toward US citizens and permanent residents who are abroad.”

The ACLU explained documents obtained reveal wide-ranging CIA domestic activities – often together with the FBI.

Annex B prohibits the CIA from domestic electronic surveillance. “(T)he Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) authorized the FBI to work with the CIA to collect Americans’ financial records in bulk under Patriot Act Section 215,” said the ACLU.

Annex B says the CIA may “use a monitoring device within the United States under circumstances in which a warrant would not be required for law enforcement purposes if the CIA General Counsel concurs.”

What monitoring devices are used and how is unclear – as well as how monitoring differs from domestic surveillance the CIA is prohibited from doing.

Dozens of entirely redacted pages under the heading “Intelligence Activities Conducted by CIA Within the United States” suggest significant domestic spying kept secret.

AR 2-2 prohibits CIA human experimentation without informed consent. The agency crossed the line by requiring doctors to be present during so-called “enhanced interrogations (aka torture).” Victims didn’t consent to their own abuse.

London’s Guardian published sections of previously classified CIA documentation letting its director and an advisory board “approve, modify, or disapprove all proposals pertaining to human subject research.”

Top CIA officials decided what types of “human subject research” were permissible – pretty much anything based on what’s already known post-9/11 and earlier before the latest information was revealed.

The Law and Policy Governing the Conduct of Intelligence Agencies AR 2-2 section says the Agency “shall not sponsor, contract for, or conduct research on human subjects” in violation of humane medical practices.

The previously unknown section providing guidelines on “human subject research” empowers the director and an advisory board to “evaluate all documentation and certifications pertaining to human research sponsored by, contracted for, or conducted by the CIA.”

Last December, Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) published an analysis of CIA interrogations indicating psychologists played “the essential role” in the Agency’s “extensive system of torture and ill-treatment” – in blatant violation of core international laws, norms and standards.

On the one hand, the CIA doesn’t admit engaging in torture. On the other, it says having medical personnel present ensured its “enhanced interrogations” were conducted according to medical standards.

Federation of American Scientists scholar Steven Aftergood says torture victims were studied by medical professionals to learn how they responded to brutal treatment.

They were unwitting subjects. They never gave informed consent. Harvard’s Humanitarian Initiative researcher Nathaniel Raymond said “Crime one was torture. The second crime was research without consent in order to say it wasn’t torture.”

Human experimentation remains official US policy. CIA torture continues secretly in US global black sites. Guantanamo is the tip of the iceberg.
Numerous other US torture prisons operate worldwide.

Complicit allies cooperate with apprehensions, indefinite detentions, brutal interrogations, torture and other forms of abuse – with subjects denied access to counsel and in many cases have little or no hope for release.

Prefab State Terror For Human Bondage


The shadow cabal that exerts raw power over the public controls and dictates the mindset that passes as the popular culture. Keeping people in fear, real or manufactured is essential to keep the police state omnipresent. Both foreign and domestic operations are conducted to divide and rule, not only other nations, but the indigenous populations that are targets of the next clandestine mission. Since the end of WWII, the intelligence community has lead the way to overturn our constitutional republic and put into place a controlled social environment that is docile and obedient to the masters of the Amerika Empire.

In order to accomplish this fundamental transition from a free society into a despotic police state, threats must be fashioned, real or imaginary. Bona fide menaces that imperil our legitimate national security require intelligent and defensive action. However, such situations are rare, when compared to the entire mix of manufactured crisis that are designed to increase the range and scope of the power establishment.

The sordid and soiled history of the Central Intelligence Agency is a prime example of furthering international conflict and tension so that the national subjects will accept a trepidation culture. But the CIA is not alone in this coordinated effort to create undeviating terror. In the 50’s the FBI looked for a commie under any bed. Just consider how far we have sunk since Hoover did his illegal wire taps to a society that routinely accepted the NSA collection of all electronic communications.

With the collapse of the Soviet International and the intellectual disrepute of Marxist ideology, one might think that the efforts of the intelligence communities might have earned their keep. With the recent disclosure of the CIA cooperated with Chinese intelligence to target Russia, the book “The Hundred Year Marathon” by former Pentagon official Michael Pillsbury reveals the following:

“Covert CIA-China cooperation was part of successive administrations’ programs to undermine the Soviet Union, which China turned on after realizing Moscow’s Marxist-Leninist economic model was doomed. China instead began courting the United States for economic benefit while creating a revised communist economic system.

The disclosures of clandestine U.S.-China intelligence cooperation dating to the 1970s are likely to embarrass Beijing. China frequently attacks the CIA for allegedly fomenting democratic revolution in China and for supporting the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama, whom China designated as a major enemy. Beijing also accused the CIA of organizing the recent large-scale pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong. The U.S. government has denied any role in the public outcry over creeping Chinese control over the former British colony.”

The significance of the “Agency” working with an advocacy to destabilize a different foe should not shock seasoned observers of international intrigue. What is even less surprising is that the defeat of the Soviet Communist regime brought a new era of openness to Russia, while the neo-commies in Beijing China perfected their totalitarian model for the NWO globalism elites.

Now that the Putin administration is exerting its own national interest and pushes back against the American expansion to surround the “Motherland”, the pro Zionists over at the State Department ratchet up pressure on the new Russia. The U.S. inspired coup in Ukraine has always been about neutering the Christian revival in Russia.

As currency wars develop and the Russia Rubble was recently undermined, the attack on any intended opposition to the “world community” is set to expand. Conversely, speculation that the IMF will soon add the Chinese Yuan as a reserve currency indicates that it is vital to craft essential enemies when needed and elevate opportunist when useful.

The common theme throughout the last century has been the planned technocratic human bondage of the world population. The calls for democratic self determination and economic uplifting for subsistent level peasants may seem to have improved the human condition. Even so, the upgrading in material minimalism has not been accompanied with respect for individual human rights.

The State, no matter what nationality or ideological orientation all share a consistent flaw; namely, a false authority of supremacy that imposes the dictates of committed globalists.

Failure to recognize that intelligence and security agencies are nothing more than police state enforcers is a prime reason why a universal populist movement does not gain traction.

Different cultures perceive the world within their own ethnic eyes. Expecting varied outlooks should be accepted as normal. However, the overriding message that comes out of the mass media, both foreign and domestic, share a common commercial content. The powers that be must be obeyed. This social indoctrination is intended to protect the interdependency of a unified global matrix.

In order to achieve this objective, perceived threats are useful. Distinguishing between tangible and phony dangers, contrary to popular wisdom, is not a function, preformed by the security apparatus, one can have confidence in. Their literal agenda is to serve the shifting global instability template, so that the elite can continue to have free reign on adding more layers of servitude.

Today’s serfs often wear designer duds. But more important, perception is altered when history is perverted. How the CIA Turned Doctor Zhivago into a Propaganda Weapon Against the Soviet Union provided a valuable lesson.

“The CIA’s recently revealed use of Boris Pasternak’s novel Doctor Zhivago as a propaganda weapon. Repressed in Pasternak’s native Russia, the book first appeared in Italy in 1957. The following year, the British suggested to America’s Central Intelligence Agency that the book stood a decent chance of winning hearts and minds behind the Iron Curtain — if, of course, they could get a few copies in there. A CIA memo sent across its own Soviet Russia Division subsequently pronounced Doctor Zhivago as possessed of “great propaganda value, not only for its intrinsic message and thought-provoking nature, but also for the circumstances of its publication. We have the opportunity to make Soviet citizens wonder what is wrong with their government, when a fine literary work by the man acknowledged to be the greatest living Russian writer is not even available in his own country in his own language for his own people to read.”

That evaluation comes from one of the over 130 declassified documents used by Peter Finn and Petra Couvée in their brand new history of this act of real-life literary espionage, The Zhivago Affair: The Kremlin, the CIA and the Battle Over a Forbidden Book.”

The message behind this outstanding treasure of literature is undeniable. Hopeful, uplifting of the human spirit, while describing the grim circumstances of the commissar system, is memorable. Comrades beware; bringing down an evil empire to have it replaced with a kinder and gentler Western version of globalization is not exactly the definition of success.

Who among the defenders of Western Civilization will write the next masterpiece about the sinister motives and dire effects of the true global hegemony that seeks to subjugate all of humanity under the banner of world unity?

The imposition of State terror initiates its next operation with the full blessing of the financial controllers. Keeping and expanding the danger level of false flag terrorism, provides the excuse to impose the Jade Helm gulag.

“JADE-HELM – stands for: “Joint Assistance For Deployment and Execution – Homeland Eradication of Local Militants.” In other words, the Government is getting nervous about the fact that more Americans are now aware of the corruption, criminality and destruction of civil rights. Jade Helm is specifically intended for the purpose of eliminating fomenting Government insurrection groups. The States in which Jade Helm exercises are being conducted are “hot beds” for anti-Government militia groups (the latter are your allies).”

The faint-hearted vassals, who would never dare to jeopardize their own tranquility, if not meaningless subsistence, or oppose their countries deep sleep into oblivion, are real bondage serfs.

Keeping or amplifying the CIA sub-rosa agenda of warfare missions to include domestic operations should be opposed by any loyal citizen. Since apathy, confusion and denial of what actually constitutes a “Good and Open Society” is in such short supply, few will act upon resisting the forces of global tyranny.

When genuine national security is sacrificed to further a climate of prefab fear, we lose the battle for true safety. If enduring under a Reign of Terror is the price we all must pay to complete the global New World Order, we must be collectively insane to allow this transition to be accepted without a fight to the death.

Many will conclude that this conversion is inevitable. Doctor Zhivago was a heroic figure and fought the autocrats. His example provides motivation to apply the same principles of opposition to the established order of a demonic organized criminal syndicate.

Having the courage to combat despotism in favor of individual liberation, is fundamentally our duty and purpose as true Americans. Reject phony intelligence community terrorist threats. In order to restore the essence of our nation, every citizen needs to oppose any and all   components of the New World Order. Reform will not work. Only total rebellion is left.

Luke Rudkowski Confronts Anderson Cooper: “Have You Ever Heard Of Operation Mockingbird?” (VIDEO)


Reporter Luke Rudkowski braves the Baltimore riots (without any bodyguards) in order to confront CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his CIA past. Anderson attempts to hide behind several bodyguards and then retreats to a vehicle to avoid Luke’s questioning.

Over 300 days have passed since James Tracy challenged Anderson Cooper to revisit Newtown Connecticut with him. To this day Mr. Cooper has yet to take Tracy up on the offer.

Spy Master A Lethal Melanoma


Nam si vos omnibus imperitare vultis, sequitur ut omnes servitutem accipiant?

If you want to rule the whole world, does it then follow that everyone else welcomes enslavement? – Caratacus (Tacitus, Annales XII, xxxvii)

The formation of a bureaucratic superstructure for national intelligence will put in motion a perverse organism. The significance lies not in the figurehead or even the process for the selection, but rests in the birthing of a Medusa. Little wisdom comes out of this modern daughter of Phorkys and Keto, the children of Gaia (Earth) and Okeanos (Ocean).  This ugly creature will use the charms of seduction – national security – but will end up spreading a den of snakes. The globe will be her playpen and the seas will be her lake. No one or no place will fall outside her watch. She will run her hydra network through all those underling heads, but in the end her advice will revival that of Eve.  The mother of all evil won’t be a gender bias for any director will impose paternity over the stream of information. The children of this fraudulent union will bear the price from her wrath. Overseas enemies will feel the force of her boot. And the only creature to resist her might may well be those who run under the radar screen.   

Quite a departure from all those spies that came in from the cold.  Can you envision James Jesus Angleton following orders? Remember his direction to CIA Director McCone and FBI Director  Hoover during the Warren Commission: 

“One question will be “Was Lee Harvey Oswald ever an agent of CIA?” The answer will be no. A second question will be “Does CIA have any evidence showing that a conspiracy existed to assassinate President Kennedy?” The answer to this question will also be no. The third question will be “What suggestions does CIA have to offer for safe-guarding the life of the President of the United States?” Angleton didn’t have the complete answer to this worked out but because of the nature of the question, it wouldn’t conflict with what the Bureau has already suggested. A fourth question will be “Does CIA believe the Soviet documents on Oswald submitted to the Warren Commission accurately reflect the Soviet relations with Oswald?” Angleton said their answer cannot be either a flat yes or no because they do not have the knowledge to so state. He said he believes McCone’s answer will be to the effect that CIA is aware that Soviet Russia does have a directorate charged with the responsibility for carrying out assassinations and, therefore, these documents in question would not normally reflect accurately relations with such a person as Oswald. However, on the other hand, CIA has no evidence that Oswald was under the instructions of this directorate charged with assassinations. “ 

How about the Dulles brothers? John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles would turn over in their graves before allowing a consolidation of a top down national intelligence director, unless of course, one of them got the position. Richard Helms might be LBJ’s man and Nixon’s accomplice, but would he adhere to a rogue elephant herd running the intelligence community? If you still have doubts, ask William Colby how safe it is to canoe the waters of Maryland’s Wicomico River – loose lips sink ships. What all these infamous Beltway spooks have in common is a dedication to a stalwart state of elitist control for world affairs. 

National security, for this company, and all power demons is always the same – cover your own ass. So when George Tenet states: “I don’t believe that you should separate the leader of American intelligence from a line agency”, you get the real low down. A fiefdom for any ‘Intelligence Community” agency head is sacred ground and must be defended with all their resources, covert and clandestine, if considered necessary. When a Sub Rosa bureau or a  faction element within an agency, venture into executing their own policy, the players at the top are undermined. That’s not necessarily bad, depending upon your loyalty. Surely your own interests are seldom protected or advanced by official doctrine.  However, when the entire apparatus of intelligence gathering is directed towards the eradication of true national self-interest and the implementation of a total compliant society, one needs to re-examine if trusting in claims of national security, really safeguards our country. 

The riddle within an enigma that is presented as too complex for ordinary people to understand is not a mystery. It is a designed plan meant to cover the real goal. An oversized and reinvented supra-bureaucracy won’t curb the internal conflict among contradictory viewpoints. Case in point, since the NeoCons are in charge, any movement to purge their extensive inter connection of disloyal treachery, will be put down with official blessings.  When a dedicated Likudnik is placed as head master at the intelligence institution, you can be assured that the only curriculum accepted for public indoctrination will reflect an Israel First benefit. With the appointment of a “super spook” will the prospects of national independence become a reality? Based upon current events, further integration with hostile intelligence services will intensify. 

Ironically, this prospect flies in the face of Efraim Halevy, head of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service, from 1998 to 2002 warning:  

“Now there is a recommendation to appoint an intelligence “tsar” in the United States. In my humble opinion no greater mistake could be made so far as the intelligence community is concerned. If the new tsar is to assume command responsibility for the intelligence community, then he will be de facto director of the CIA and the other intelligence agencies in the country. He, and he alone, will be responsible for the content and standard of the evaluation. The professional director of the CIA will be responsible to the tsar, and the president of the United States will be functioning through a “proxy” on matters of war and peace. In intelligence, there can be no sharing in responsibility; it is, and will always remain, indivisible.” 

Just maybe the NeoCons in this administration are more kosher than the Israeli ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’. Halevy has his own nasty record, and certainly shares the same regional goals as the likes of Perle, Feith and Wolfowitz, but his perceptive analysis has already been rejected with the decision for reorganization. Homeland Defense move over, the new gorilla on the block, will make MI 6 shutter and James Bond defect. 

Such delusions only go to reduce our real national interest. The first task for any intelligence service is to know who is your real enemy. Spying on Americans while sharing information with Tel Aviv is pure madness. Yet, what should be expected out of a culture that doesn’t trust anyone, but obeys orders from those who can advance their personal circumstance. The terminal cancer that spreads within the “Intelligence Community” has only one cure – loyalty to the legitimate America.  The operatives that run their cells and control their moles need to disrupt the move towards a national sellout. The beast they work for and serve is a mortal threat to the last remains of a republic. Their Medusa myths are a Greek tragedy that has grave real world consequences.  The overhaul needed is not one of organization, but one of exclusion. That’s the only intelligent approach.

CIA Is Consolidating Enemies: Boko Haram ‘Joins Islamic State’

boko haram

Nigerian militant group Boko Haram has pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS), according to an audio statement.

The message, which has not been verified, was posted on Boko Haram’s Twitter account and is believed to be by the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Boko Haram began a military campaign to impose Islamic rule in northern Nigeria in 2009. The conflict has since spread to neighbouring states.

It would be the latest in a series of groups to swear allegiance to IS.

In the past Boko Haram is thought to have had links with al-Qaeda.

Gitmo In Chicago: CIA Blacksites In U.S.

What London’s Guardian reported on Tuesday is shocking, disturbing, yet unsurprising given the scourge of neocon fascist governance in America.

Washington’s war on humanity at home and abroad should be a wakeup call for everyone. Wars without end rage against one nation after another.

Independent ones are targeted for regime change. Washington’s goal is total colonization of planet earth, stealing its resources and enslaving its people.

US cities are virtual battlegrounds like never before. America is unsafe to live in.

Washington provides police nationwide with enormous amounts of combat weapons, related equipment and supplies – making them virtual military units.

The line between cop and combat ready soldier is less clear than ever in US history. Militarized police wage war on freedom. It’s a hair’s breadth from disappearing altogether.

When cities become battlegrounds, ordinary people risk being treated like enemies – losing all constitutional protections mattering most.

The alarming state of today’s America should scare everyone. Fundamental rights don’t matter. Anyone can be targeted, arrested and disappeared. Perhaps never heard from again.

This writer’s home city Chicago may be ground zero for some of the most disturbing practices. London’s Guardian broke the story demanding world coverage and outrage.

On February 24, it headlined “The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden ‘black site.’ “

It’s an “off-the-books (Homan Square) interrogation compound,” said the Guardian – some miles west from where this writer lives.

A “nondescript warehouse (is) the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.” People are lawlessly arrested, detained, denied access to lawyers up to 24 hours, and tortured during secret interrogations.

Detainees are kept off “official booking databases. Some young as 15 are painfully shackled for long periods, beaten and terrorized.

Homan Square is in Chicago’s west side North Lawndale district. It’s home to the original 1905 Sears, Roebuck and Co. property.

Many of its buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Perhaps Gitmo in America will be included one day. More on the Guardian’s report below.

Chicago police have a longstanding reputation for brutality. They have virtual carte blanche authority to operate with impunity.

They take full advantage. From 1972 – 1991, detective Jon Burge got away with torturing over 200 detainees. Instead of dismissal and prosecution, he was promoted.

Dozens of victims complained. Suits followed. Finally, after 21 abusive years, he was fired.

Community outrage stopped a March 1993 Fraternal Order of Police plan to honor him with a float in Chicago’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.

On October 21, 2008, he was indicted on two counts of obstructing justice and one count of perjury. On June 28, 2010, he was convicted on all counts. He’s the exception proving the rule.

It took decades for partial justice. Few police are prosecuted – almost never one of high rank. Burge rose from street cop to detective commander. Over two decades, he got 13 commendations and a Justice Department letter of praise.

His crimes were well-known. A code of silence hid them. He was honored until his luck ran out. He got off mildly.

He received four and half years in prison. His crimes and similar ones committed by other rogue cops should never have been allowed in the first place.

This writer personally knows a Chicago cop torture victim. He committed no crimes. Yet he was lawlessly arrested, detained and brutalized for being Black in the wrong place at the wrong time.

He remains justifiably outraged. Rogue cops weren’t punished. Nor their superiors. During Chicago’s May 2012 NATO summit, Chicago police viciously assaulted peaceful protesters.

Dozens were hurt. Victims had head injuries, broken bones and teeth knocked out. Many required hospitalization.

In Black and Latino communities, police brutality rages. Cracked skulls, arrests and brutality in detention reflect longstanding practice.

Chicago is a mini-police state. Last year, a Chicago organization called We Charge Genocide produced a report charging city police with “systematic horrific & punitive police violence against Black and Brown youths on a daily basis.”

ACLU human rights program director Jamil Dakwar says “(i)t’s time for systemic policing reforms and effective oversight that make sure law enforcement agencies treat all citizens with equal respect and hold officers accountable when they cross the line.”

Chicago police lie saying “CPD abides by all laws, rules and guidelines pertaining to any interviews of suspects or witnesses, at Homan Square or any other CPD facility.”

“If lawyers have a client detained at Homan Square, just like any other facility, they are allowed to speak to and visit them.”

“It also houses CPD’s Evidence Recovered Property Section, where the public is able to claim inventoried property.”

The Guardian report explained systematic abuse of power and denial of fundamental constitutional rights.

“At least one man was found unresponsive in a Homan Square (so-called) ‘interview room’ and later pronounced dead,” it said.

Brian Jacob Church was one of the 2012 NATO Three protesters. He was arrested and held incommunicado at Homan Square for nearly 24 hours before being booked at local police station.

He commented to the Guardian as follows, saying:

“Homan Square is definitely an unusual place. It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East.”

“The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.”

“…I wasn’t allowed to make any contact with anybody.” He was painfully shackled for about 17 hours.

“I had essentially figured, ‘All right, well, they disappeared us and so we’re probably never going to see the light of day again.”

Lawyers seeking access to Homan Square are routinely turned away. According to Chicago attorney Julia Bartmes:

“It’s sort of an open secret among attorneys that regularly make police station visits, this place – if you can’t find a client in the system, odds are they’re” at Homan.

Civil rights attorney Flint Taylor accused Chicago police of Fifth and Sixth Amendment violations.

He omitted 8th Amendment prohibitions against “cruel and unusual punishments.”

He said Homan Square reflects “an institutionalization of the practice that dates back more than 40 years, of violating a suspect or witness’ rights to a lawyer and not to be physically or otherwise coerced into giving a statement.”

When a Guardian reporter tried gaining access to Homan, a guard “refused any entrance and would not answer questions,” the paper said.

“This is a secure facility. You’re not even supposed to be standing here,” the guard said.

Detainees taken there “just disappear,” said criminal defense attorney Anthony Hill.

Their whereabouts is unknown “until they show up at a district for charging or are just released back out on the street.”

Chicago police guidelines prohibit Homan Square practices. A “Processing Persons Under Department Control” directive says the following:

“(I)nvestigation or interrogation of an arrestee will not delay the booking process.”

Anyone arrested must be allowed “a reasonable number of telephone calls (to attorneys straightaway) after their arrival at the first place of custody.”

“Arrestee and In-Custody Communications (must) allow visitation by attorneys.” According to the Guardian:

“The combination of holding clients for long periods, while concealing their whereabouts and denying access to a lawyer, struck legal experts as a throwback to the worst excesses of Chicago police abuse, with a post-9/11 feel to it.”

Former Chicago public defender/current Valparaiso University Law School dean Andrea Lyon calls Homan Square “analogous to the CIA’s black sites,”

Chicago Justice Project’s Tracy Siska says “(t)he real danger in allowing practices like Guantanamo or Abu Ghraib is the fact that they always creep into other aspects.”

“They creep into domestic law enforcement, either with weaponry like with the militarization of police, or interrogation practices.”

“That’s how we ended up with a black site in Chicago.” A follow-up February 26 Guardian report said city police didn’t respond to its questions.

What’s ongoing in Chicago likely happens elsewhere across America. US jails, detention facilities and prisons are notoriously brutal.

An earlier article discussed a 2005 UK Deborah Davis Channel 4 report titled “Torture, Inc., America’s Brutal Prisons.”

It explained prisoners brutally shocked with cattle prods, burned by toxic chemicals, harmed by stun guns, beaten, stripped naked and abused in various other ways.

Sound familiar, it asked? Welcome to Guantanamo in America..

Videos Britain’s Channel 4 aired made disturbing viewing. They show guards yelling and abusing prisoners.

“(O)rdering them to lie on the ground and crawl. (If not) fast enough, a guard kicks (them) or stomps on (their) back.”

One man screamed when a dog bit his lower leg. Another had his ankle broken, couldn’t crawl fast enough, and was painfully taserred on his buttocks.

Hours later, his body still shook uncontrollably. Images revealed reflected Gitmo or Abu Ghraib practices in US prisons.

Horrifying evidence of America’s brutality. Commonplace abroad and at home at the federal, state and local levels.

Chicago is a microcosm of systemic US ruthlessness. Torture without accountability is the clearest example.

Sadism writ large best explains it. Nothing in prospect suggests change.

The Origin Of ISIS (VIDEO)

By: Ben Swann | Benswann.com

In the latest episode of Truth in Media, Ben Swann investigates the origins of the militant group referred to as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The name ISIS is one that every American knows,” Swann said “The biggest threat to our national security since Al-Qaeda, right? They are a brutal, savage group known for public beheadings and mass executions. They are the face of the new war on terror.”

Swann pointed out that while the U.S. Military is currently conducting airstrikes in Syria, in a supposed attempt to take out ISIS targets, the White House and U.S. military leaders are discussing possible boots on the ground in Iraq. These talks are arising just three years after President Obama declared that the war in Iraq was over.

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told USA Today that in order to defeat ISIS, he believes the United States is looking at “a 30-year-war.”

As the U.S. goes to war in an attempt to defeat yet another terrorist group, the biggest question is: Who exactly is ISIS and where did they come from?

Angela Keaton, the founder of Antiwar.com, said that ISIS is “entirely a creation of the United States’ behavior in Iraq.”

That’s how we got to where we are, because of war, because of occupation, because of torture,” Keaton said. “The United States government completely destabilized and wrecked Iraq. They caused it to fail miserably and that is entirely the fault of the United States government. There is no one else to blame.”

Swann explained that when the U.S. first invaded Iraq, it “blew the country apart.” By destroying the existing government, toppling Saddam Hussein, and destroying the infrastructure, the U.S. “left behind a power vacuum” that would never have existed under Hussein.

Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute, said that the impact caused by the actions of the United States is a “historical fact that media just won’t discuss.”

This has to do with U.S. action in the region, which destroyed the infrastructure, which destroyed Iraq society, which destroyed the Iraqi government,” McAdams said. He explained that while there were a lot of people who weren’t “as happy as larks” while living under Saddam Hussein, they also weren’t at odds with Hussein in the same way they were with the government established by the U.S.

The militant group ISIS was formed as a small insurgent group in Iraq in 2006. Swann noted that while they tried to create problems for the U.S. military, they had no money and no real ability to recruit.

It wasn’t until 2009 that ISIS shifted its focus from Iraq, where it was largely unsuccessful in developing a foothold, and focused on the civil war in Syria,” Swann said.

While in Syria, ISIS still struggled to gain a foothold. Swann attributed this to the fact that two larger groups fighting against President Bashar al-Assad were overpowering them: al-Nusra Front – or al-Qaeda – and the Free Syrian Army.

Then, came a pivotal moment that most Americans aren’t even aware of,” Swann said. “In June 2013, a Northern General for the Free Syrian Army spoke out on Al Jazeera Qatar and stated that if international forces did not send weapons, the rebels attempting to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad would lose their war within a month.”

Swann noted that just months before this occurred he had personally confronted President Obama on the issue of why the U.S. was covertly funding Syrian rebels. Although Obama acted as if he was proceeding with caution, politicians such as Senator John McCain demanded action.

Within a matter of weeks of the Syrian general making his plea for international help, the U.S., the Saudis, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and Israel began providing weapons, training and money to so-called rebel groups like the Free Syrian Army,” Swann said.

In September 2013, American media outlets began reporting that weapons were being given to Syrian rebels. CNN reported that while the weapons are not “American-made,” they were “funded and organized by the CIA.”

However, Swann said that things began to fall apart when less than one year after the U.S. supplied Syrian “freedom fighters” with weapons, those weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS fighters.

Those ISIS fighters came from the group McCain insisted would help the U.S. overthrow Assad: the Free Syrian Army. Swann explained that the army was not only sending the Islamic State weapons, it was also sending them fighters.

The Free Syrian Army has lost most of the land that it ever claimed and it’s entirely incompetent,” Keaton said. “The only thing that it has been good at is currying favor with western leaders.”

Swann said that it wasn’t until June 2014 that ISIS went from being a “no-name group in Syria” to a group that was “heavily armed and trained by U.S. and Coalition Special Forces.” This revitalized group made a dramatic entrance by crossing back over the Syrian border into Iraq and capturing Mosul and much of the northern part of the country.

One of the most important facts that mainstream media ignores time and time again is that ISIS was able to grow so fast, because of all the U.S. military equipment they were able to seize – equipment that our military left in Iraq,” said Swann. “Truckloads of Humvees, tanks and weaponry that instead of taking or destroying, the U.S. government simply decided to leave behind.

However, even when the U.S. government became aware that ISIS fighters were capturing U.S. equipment, it did nothing. Swann attributed the lack of action to the fact that ISIS fighters were taking the equipment back into Syria to continue fighting Assad, which was what the U.S. government wanted.

How is it that the United States, with all of its intelligence capabilities, didn’t know this threat was coming?” McAdams said. “How many billions did we spend, maybe a hundred billion on total intelligence community budge over the year? How did they have no idea?”

Swann said that the answer is simple: “The U.S. did know who ISIS was, but the so-called Islamic State was doing what the Obama administration wanted.”

The ISIS fighters continued to do what the Obama administration wanted, and in late summer 2014, they were labeled what Swann called, “the new boogeyman in the war on terror.”

Over the past few months, the U.S. government, who acted like they had never even heard of ISIS, suddenly, with the help of media has turned the Islamic State into the new focus of the war on terror,” Swann said. “Now, as ISIS has continued its rise, recruitment is exploding and the group is becoming stunningly wealthy.”

Swann noted that in response to the “ISIS threat,” the U.S. began “conducting airstrikes on Syrian oil fields, instead of going after those buying the oil.”

McAdams pointed out that ISIS makes $2 million a day off of selling oil, and the United States’ response, of “undercutting the competition” by blowing up oil fields makes no sense. He questioned why the U.S., which is known for sanctioning “anything that moves,” when it’s angry, is not placing sanctions on the banks or the oil companies that are involved.

Swann added that in addition to those questions, Americans should also be asking, “Why is the U.S. sending $500 million to the Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS when the FSA is one of the biggest suppliers of fighters and weapons to ISIS?” and “Why are we sending new and more powerful weapons to the FSA like anti-aircraft missiles – weapons that we know will be in the hands of ISIS?

Swann maintained that while the mainstream media will say that ISIS is the “creation of American inaction,” the reality is that they are the “product of direct action.”

This direct action started with “the action of creating a power vacuum in Iraq” and manifested into the “arming violent Jihadists, hoping they would overthrow a leader in a neighboring Middle Eastern country.”

McAdams described the U.S. government as a victim of its own insane policies, due to the fact that it is “very good at blowing things up, but really bad at putting them back together.”

In determining whether or not McAdams’ statement was true, Swann listed three facts:

Fact #1: “Our government armed Osama bin Laden and the Mujahideen in Afghanistan and created al-Qaeda.”

Fact #2: “Our government put Saddam Hussein into power – we helped supply and create chemical weapons for him to use against Iran in 1980 – and then we overthrew him in 2003.”

Fact #3: “Our government trained rebel fighters in Syria who would become the group today known as ISIS. We have watched them commit every violent atrocity you can imagine to people living in Iraq and Syria, and now we want American taxpayers to fund a 30-year war with them.”

Swann came to the conclusion that it isn’t the U.S. government being held hostage by crazy policies; rather it is the American people.

It is time that we reject the destruction of people groups around the world for the sake of foreign policy that makes so-called defense contractors rich, and perpetuates violence, death, and the destruction of entire people groups,” Swann said. “This is the central issue of our time – because humanity is greater than politics.”

Unlimited War! – ISIS Psyop Theater Comes To Full Fruition


The CIA and the U.S. Military Industrial Complex have now invested over 6 months of ISIS branding, promotion, and public relations. It was revealed by early January of 2015 that the U.S. had already dumped over one billion $$ dollars to fight ISIS. All supposedly invested in failed air strikes and un-televised secret battles against ISIS where the U.S. ends up attacking Syrian targets instead.

The ISIS psyop has been worked on so hard by the architects of the plan that now we are seeing the final desired political goals of the entire operation- an operation which has become more of a global theater. The ISIS psyop theater is now coming to fruition and the globalists are speaking loud and clear about what they want, which is really an admission to why they concocted the ISIS psyop to begin with. They want the authorization to use “unlimited” military “force” wherever they want, whenever they want and (of course) on WHO-ever they want to use it on. Isn’t this a tyrannical empire’s dream come true? And with this revelation the romance between ISIS and CIA/US/Israel and the other NATO ISIS partners is now fully exposed to anyone willing to see it for what it is.

For over 6 months Americans and people all over the world who still retain their normal critical thinking skills have been subjected to painfully sloppy fake ISIS videos, heavily scripted news reports verbally dictating to us accounts of supposed battles against ISIS. All along, as the months go by, ISIS has not been effected at all by anything the U.S. and its pro-ISIS allies have done. If anything, they keep telling us that ISIS continues to grow.

Even when it was revealed that throughout Iraq, “suspicions” were running deep back in September of 2014 that “CIA and Islamic State are united“, no one within the mainstream media did anything to stop the ISIS psyop by at least exposing the fact that not one ISIS supply line had been disrupted, not one bank account ceased, not one (illegal) NSA data mining effort able to collect the whereabouts of ISIS (as they do of U.S. innocent citizens) to gather them up and end the ISIS theater. Not one story was reported by mainstream media about the 100+ ISIS supply trucks rumbling through Turkey to get into Syria. Not one story appeared about how Turkey was supporting ISIS or about how the U.S. and it’s NATO allies were allowing ISIS to enjoy (food, water, toiletries and ammo) supplies without disruption.

We never did find out how ISIS was able to get on the internet, make calls, communicate, make high production style videos and upload to the internet. All we got was ISIS production department Rita Katz and her (CIA approved anti-terror propaganda) SITE Institute telling us she luckily found the ISIS beheading videos and was able to show it to the world before ISIS themselves could promote their own video. Aside from this bizarre story we got not a peep from the mainstream media about anything relevant to stopping ISIS.

Since the launching of the ISIS show instead, mainstream media has been focused on only branding and praising ISIS and showing the world how incredible and unstoppable they are. Since the branding of the ISIS name began late in the summer of 2014 we’ve watched the ISIS psyop script morph from the fake James Foley beheading video blocked from the masses by YouTube claiming the video was to graphic and offensive, to an organization which is now (supposedly) full-scale global force stronger and more organized than any nation on earth.

We have also watched for over 6 months now as the ISIS story evolved into a tale told very differently by two opposing forms of media coverage. The true alternative independent (non-corporate) media has collectively exposed the ISIS tale showing how each story gets more and more ridiculous. On the other hand, the mainstream corporate media has pounded the ISIS brand and its greatness into its viewers daily, carefully setting them up for the war approval request we see now.

If you actually tracked mainstream media stories of the last 6 months you will very likely find that ISIS has gotten more headlines than any other single topic. In an Orwellian society that suffers from headline news amnesia, thanks to the “ministry of truth” mainstream media who regularly changes the headline news to fit the agenda of the day, we’ve seen an unusual repetition of ISIS stories that doesn’t even fit the mainstream media’s own script, much less the framework of reality, truth and reason.

This over-the-top effort by CIA’s mainstream media to over-sell the ISIS brand is now primed for being fully exposed with the latest White House bold request for unlimited military power to strike and kill anyone they please. For perspective, let’s examine the Obama/White House psyop sequence of responses with respect to ISIS over the last six months.

Timeline Of White House Reaction to ISIS

In early September 2014 on the heals of the fake beheading videos and stories of ISIS conquering Mosul and taking over U.S. weapons Obama stated regarding ISIS, “we don’t have a strategy“, an unusual thing for any leader to say about any supposed threat. The strategy at the time was to make the U.S. FEEL like they were the underdogs. This “underdog” strategy is practiced by boxing coaches and we see this underdog strategy in sports all the time. It is well known that most people enjoy and prefer to root for the (perceived) underdog. Taking full advantage of this human tendency to root for the underdog was a significant piece of the early strategy for recruiting American sentiment and support for “action” against ISIS.

At the time, the mainstream media played right along and clearly that turned out to be the chosen strategy heading into the end of 2014 and early 2015. The plan? Blow up ISIS by talking endlessly about them and continue to show the world how they are growing, while continuing to sound weak with respect to attacking ISIS.

Following the September 2014 launching of the- ‘We are the underdog’ strategy, we heard highly unusual stories like ISIS bragging on social media about their success, ISIS making promotional videos involving the murder of non-supporters, ISIS somehow recruiting members all the way on the other side of the world, even ISIS printing their own money. By the end of 2014 there was almost nothing that ISIS had not accomplished.

By the turn of the new year (2015) the ISIS branding was secure and by January the U.S. Government announced the creation of a secret new “Task Force” to deal with ISIS. Details of this task force would be held a secret. The only thing we knew for sure was that it would require a lot of money $$$ to operate, that it would combine the efforts of the other NATO (pro-ISIS) countries, and that it’s location would be somewhere in the Middle East or South East Asia, smack in the middle of the region of the world where the U.S. has been illegally meddling in for years in its quest to run the world.

By early February 2015 the reaction from Obama and the White House was “Obama Warns Against Exaggerating the Islamic State Threat“. This position and this reaction to ISIS was intended as nothing more than reverse psychology. Obama, who had been positioning himself as the underdog all this time, now begins to position himself as someone not so eager to attack ISIS, someone who is calm and not wanting to sound like a warmonger. This was all by design.

Shortly after this staged comment attempting to sound calm and cool of course, Obama is now reacting to the ISIS soap opera in an exaggerated manner. Any time a staged terror group gets its ammunition, support, supplies and public relations from the same country they claim they will be attacking, responding to this staged situation with unlimited power of war is very much an exaggeration.

Just days after announcing his request for unlimited war on the Middle East, all consistent with the PNAC plans, now it is being reported that 4000 U.S. troops are heading to Kuwait to fight ISIS. This is what happens when CIA’s mainstream media and its bought out politicians make the decisions that please the U.S. Military Industrial Complex. The rest of us sit here watching these psychopaths lie about ISIS and give themselves power to wage limitless war.

ISIS Super Powers Transcend Reality

As I mentioned in my recent article about the deliberate mainstream media branding of ISIS, most people are not aware of the magnitude of the ISIS brand and how they have been portrayed as greater than god. ISIS is a meaningless group of ($300 a month salaried I’m told) Middle Eastern stray men with both Jesus Christ and Superman-like powers, combined into one. According to western corporate media, ISIS has greater intelligence than all of their enemies combined. They are a super-human force able to outsmart all military intelligence at once, avoid all global surveillance and NSA illegal data-mining at once. All the while fighting multiple countries on multiple fronts, and WINNING!

As I’ve mentioned before, the ISIS brand has stood up to the world (according to CIA’s mainstream media) showing off their razorblade sharp technological skills like programmers, hackers and techies with super-slick untraceable and effective social media prowess. Their totally retarded psychopathic view of life is no deterrent to average Americans, Canadians, Australians and citizens (apparently) all over the world including women!! Average people (as I said in a recent article) apparently suddenly decide the want to join ISIS for no reason at all. I suppose these people (if they actually exist) are overwhelmed by the over-the-top branding ISIS has received from mainstream media. Absolute evidence that marketing and branding works.

Breaking the ISIS Hypnotic Spell

Recently I saw where one major left wing media personnel tweeted doubts about the ISIS theater script. Is this a sign of things to come within Left wing media? As humanity waits for the people within the media to continue to break ranks and seek truth, we can be sure that things will get much worse before they get better. ISIS is a definitive piece of the puzzle for the new world order. It’s a powerful tool to enslave humanity by first killing off and destroying the uncooperative sovereign nations that get in the way (like Syria and Iran), then enslaving the rest of us. For now, the ongoing headache known as the ISIS theater or the ISIS psyop will continue unfortunately. The globalist have thrown the kitchen sink at the ISIS psyop hoping to make them greater than life and hopefully this over-the-top effort will be their own undoing.

Let’s do every we can to expose this pro-war psychological operation whose main goal we are now seeing come to fruition. The globalist gangsters want to wage unlimited war and it’s up to us to stop them. We also need to stop thinking of ISIS and the new world order gangsters as being separate entities, they are not. The Islamic state is very much a big part of the new world order plans. Without ISIS, the new world order plans are in serious jeopardy. Try to see this connection and free your mind of the ISIS psyop. Right now it’s plain and simple: No ISIS means NO new world order. Obama knows this, the White House knows this, traitor John McCain knows this and many in D.C. know this.

Now more than ever it is important to dump the mainstream corporate media and or hope that enough truth comes out of the media to trigger enough doubt in Americans to stop this latest war authorization trick from the White House. Say no to more reckless war, say no to government (legal) propaganda designed to promote war, and say no to endless promotion of staged terror groups to be used as tools for the globalist final goals. At this point in history Americans are burned out with the same script- Problem Reaction Solution. Let’s all step back and change the paradigm that allows for this repeated script to play itself out over and over again. We know that the “solutions” offered by government is no solution at all, instead it’s an extension of the problem. We are being fooled every time into- Problem-Reaction-More Problem!

We must all now offer NEW solutions without which we will not survive.  True solutions for the world that are real and effective. Our future as a humanity now hinges on our ability to shut down or replace the control system or their control over our ability to implement true solutions. How well we as a humanity are able to do this will determine our future and the future of the human race.

ISIS Getting Premium Level PR From CIA’s Mainstream Media!


Have you noticed the repeatedly covered Islamic State or ISIS “terror” group is now getting daily priceless, relentless coverage from the mainstream media? The public relations campaign that CIA’s ISIS is getting from CIA’s western mainstream corporate media now officially rivals the anti-Soviet Union anti-Communism propaganda campaigns of the 1950’s. This unprecedented daily campaign coverage of the U.S./NATO created, armed and funded group seems to be very focused. ISIS is everywhere, there is nothing they can’t do.

This carefully put together ISIS psyop has featured ISIS fighting and winning battles on multiple fronts with weapons, gear and trucks they magically acquired from the U.S. all the while hacking databases and websites across the globe, evading military annihilation and while evading all forms of surveillance and Intelligence tracking from a long list of enemy NATO countries it is fighting and apparently easily defeating with their seemingly endless supply of weaponry.

Quietly, the U.S. led ISIS terror group uses their ammunition to attack Syria, a country the U.S. has been trying to bring down for years, and now the only real country actually trying to defeat ISIS. How convenient for ISIS to be fighting the U.S’s dirty wars while Israel and U.S. quietly aid ISIS in their war against Syria. You know what they say about common enemies.

ISIS has simultaneously and broadly fooled the entire world from figuring out where, when and how they get their general supplies (food, water, gas, ammo etc), and more importantly how to take out their supplies. As months go by, ISIS, a small band of masked middle eastern angry “Muslim” men who apparently (judging from their own actions) hate their own religion, continue to win biblical proportion battles against essentially all nations of the world who try to challenge them. Simultaneously, their intentions and crimes are marketed all over the world, while they laugh at the world and are never met with any military or technological challenge to be stopped.

Despite the fact that truth seekers and alternative media continues to expose the ISIS psyop in real-time, the ISIS theater continues without end. Above and beyond their incredible ability to sustain themselves in the heat of conflict against a long list of NATO countries, ISIS not only maintains their cool but they even have time to stage multiple beheading videos targeting individuals from countries all over the world. From countries like Japan and China who have nothing to do with Muslims, as well as countries as far south as Australia, as far north as Canada and others. ISIS has been involved planning detailed attacks all the way on the other side of the world in the U.S.. They have recruited college students, even women from all over the world! Amazingly the ISIS brand seems to grow on average people who for no reason get up one morning thinking “I wanna join ISIS”.

The ISIS magic does not end there. ISIS is so cool and so powerful they don’t care who their enemies are any more, they want to tick-off everyone just for being human and not supporting ISIS. They seem to realize at this point that anonymity, indestructibility, technological superiority, free global name branding, massive global video production, female recruiting, periodic beheadings, and simultaneous global ass-kicking is the name of their game and like god, ISIS apparently cannot be stopped.

ISIS is the true superhuman phenomenon of our modern age (supposedly of course). So “superhuman” and so amazing ISIS has become that even sitting POTUS U.S. Barrack Obama himself was compelled to issue a warning against “exaggerating” ISIS terror threat. That “exaggeration” of course is being carried out by our own CIA and mainstream media. Nice doubling up on the intelligence. A reminder to all of us that this is all about mind-control.

And as the ISIS psyop rolls on we now see record coverage of the fake terror group in CIA’s desperate attempt to permanently ingrain ISIS into the conscience of Americans. Everyone must be wondering, just who is buying into this? How bad is the damage? Is the psychological damage worst than we think? A question I cannot answer but I can only speculate that most Americans are hopefully secretly not believing the ISIS psyop. Why? Because the government and their mouthpiece media are trying too hard. Nothing about ISIS feels, sound or looks real. We know too much about the origins of ISIS which cannot be hidden. All of the government’s efforts to build up the ISIS boogie monster are thus exaggerated as Obama implies. The ISIS branding is surreal and now a subject of daily coverage, a red flag for anyone paying attention.

With the cost of advertising and public relations nowadays we must all marvel at how ISIS gets free PR every day. The ISIS brand has been chosen to be the most famous and focused on brand of our time. The ISIS name is flashed everywhere today because the Neocons and Zionists who scripted the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) plans needed an enemy to use as a tool to advance their plans. Al Qaeda and Taliban were supposedly defeated (but not really) after 13+ years of “war” in Afghanistan, 11 years of war in Iraq and 13 years of Guantanamo prison. All which though many Americans at one time thought these were steps toward defeating terrorism, now clearly these steps seem irrelevant to the war on terror.

All the years of phony “wars” (more like illegal occupations) in the Middle East apparently did nothing to stop or even slow down terrorism. Too bad for Americans, who gave up almost ALL their liberties in exchange for the “defeat” of terrorism. Now Americans are forced to see that they were duped as we enter a fresh new era or U.S./NATO created terror. The fact is that as long as the PNAC plans are in place, so will ISIS and so will terrorism. The ISIS brand is thus here to stay.

Know this, that terrorism is what the new world order is all about. The terrorist are definitely the enemy but the terrorist wear suits, masks, military gear, live in caves and run and control our military and media. The terrorists are not committed to one uniform. They come in different forms. They (ISIS) are very much a part of the new world order and eventually humanity and everyone in America WILL have no choice but to face that there is no distinction between people like John McCain and the terrorists he has met up with. No difference between a rebel, insurgent, terrorist, fighter, militant, Jihadist, soldier, resistance or any other buzz word the media uses to describe those that kill others. There is no difference between an AK-47 and a drone. Both are weapons used to kill innocent people.


With all the cards stacked against humanity let’s do whatever we can to move far beyond the “debate” about who ISIS is and instead move mentally forward with how to deal with CIA’s ISIS.

It’s time to accept the reality that our government runs terror groups which they can turn on a disobedient American public with full immunity. They did it on 9/11/01 and they will do it again.

Will Americans get past the fear of being castrated from society for being called a “conspiracy theorist”? Despite the millions of us who are awakened globally to the plans and doings of the globalist, we’ve been tasked to awaken the sheep for their own protection and survival. We also have the distinction of observing objectively the unraveling of the new world order before our eyes. Only time will tell if our actions are sufficient to wake enough people up to turn this thing around.

Until then let us realize we are up against a powerful marketing campaign that is determined to make ISIS greater than life. It is up to us to continue diminishing the ISIS brand, ridiculing it and reminding others that all of this will someday go away if we believe in truth, common sense and reason.
