NYT Perpetuates The Myth About Obama Killing Osama


Its latest Big Lie headlined “How 4 Federal Lawyers Paved the Way to Kill Osama bin Laden” – failing to explain how killing a dead man is impossible. Resurrection wasn’t one of his skills, or anyone else’s.

It claimed “four administration lawyers developed rationales intend(ing) to overcome any legal obstacles” to killing, not capturing, him.

The New York Times ignored its own July 11, 2002 account, headlined “The Death of bin Ladenism,” saying:

“Osama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago: the fugitive died in December (2001 of natural causes) and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan.”

“Pakistan’s president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information. The remnants of Osama’s gang, however, have mostly stayed silent, either to keep Osama’s ghost alive or because they have no means of communication.”

Prophetically, The Times said “bin Laden’s ghost may linger on – perhaps because Washington and Islamabad will find it useful…But the truth is that Osama bin Laden is dead.”

Ignoring its own earlier reporting is longstanding Times practice. Serving imperial interests take precedence. Its May 1, 2011 report contradicted its July 2002 one, headlining “Bin Laden Is Dead, Obama Says.”

An accurate headline would have debunked his phony claim. No one dies twice. Dead men don’t return for a second time around.

Instead of truth and full disclosure, The Times reported the myth about bin Ladin “killed in a firefight with United States forces in Pakistan…”

Its source: Obama, a notorious serial liar, Times earlier reporting on bin Laden’s death proving his Big Lie.

Instead, it called bin Laden’s “demise…a defining moment in the American-led fight against terrorism, a symbolic stroke affirming the relentlessness of the pursuit of those who attacked New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001.”

It perpetuated a second myth: that ill and dying bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan, or Pakistan hospital where he was being treated, somehow managed to outwit the entire US intelligence establishment on that fateful day – ignoring what really happened, history’s greatest ever false flag, the mother of all Big Lies concealing it.

David Ray Griffin’s book, titled “Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive” is the seminal work about him, presenting “objective evidence and testimonies.”

It explained CIA monitored messages between him and his associates abruptly ceased after December 13, 2001. On December 26, 2001, a leading Pakistani newspaper reported his death, citing a prominent Taliban official attending his funeral – witnessing his dead body before it was laid to rest.

He was terminally ill with kidney disease and other ailments. On September 10, 2001 (one day before 9/11), CBS News anchor Dan Rather reported his admittance to a Rawalpindi, Pakistan hospital. He had nothing to do with 9/11.

In a late September 2001 interview with Pakistan’s Ummat newspaper, he categorically denied involvement in what happened on that fateful day. Fabricated claims otherwise persist – Big Lies suppressing hard truths.

Evidence Griffin presented showed “people in a position to know” said bin Laden died in December 2001 of natural causes – including then Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, Pakistani ISI intelligence, then US-installed Afghan president Hamid Karzai, and former FBI assistant counterterrorism head Dale Watson.

Griffin explained claims about “bin Laden’s continued existence (weren’t) backed up by evidence.” Perpetuating the myth about him remaining alive until US special forces allegedly killed him in May 2011 remains one of the many Big Lies of our time – The Times featuring it in its October 28 article, ignoring its own earlier confirmed report about his death.

It repeated a story gotten from unnamed US sources, claiming administration lawyers “worked in intense secrecy,” even keeping then Attorney General Eric Holder out of the loop.

Saying “(t)hey did their own research, wrote memos on highly secure laptops and traded drafts hand-delivered by (so-called) trusted couriers.” An unnamed US officials claimed “clear and ample authority for the use of lethal force under US and international law.”

No such authority exists to assassinate anyone extrajudicially for any reason. Doing so is murder. Bin Laden’s ghost was kept alive to pursue America’s war on terror.

So-called Enemy Number One was used to stoke fear to justify the unjustifiable – naked aggression against one country after another, continuing today, nearly 14 years after bin Laden’s real death. Obama did not kill him!!

Armed Black Man Doesn’t Fit “Black Lives Matter” Media Frame


Another Casualty in America’s Growing Police State.

South Florida media have been abuzz over the past week concerning the shooting death of 31-year old Corey Jones by a plainclothes police officer who reportedly did not show his badge during their encounter.

Yet there’s an especially disturbing wrinkle for major news media, who have expressed reluctance to cover the story because Jones was a licensed gun owner who had a handgun on his person at the time of the shooting.

“The tenor of the coverage has been wait and see,” the Palm Beach Post observed on October 22.

One national producer … who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the network had not authorized her to discuss the story, said her network lost some of its appetite after Jones was found to have been carrying a weapon.

As of last week Al Sharpton was headed to town, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office has summoned the FBI for a more “objective” evaluation of the crime scene. “Reverend Al’s” plane has yet to touch down in Palm Beach, even though vigils and peaceful protests have been held, and Jones’ family attracted the legal services of Benjamin Crump, the attorney who gained significant notoriety for his representation of the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown families.

A professional drummer, Jones’ SUV broke down on a highway exit ramp in the early morning hours of Sunday October 18 while he was returning from a performance. He was reluctant to leave the vehicle given the expensive musical instruments in his possession. At 3:15AM, as Jones waited for a tow truck, Palm Beach Gardens police officer Norman Raja, who was reportedly working a robbery surveillance beat, drove up in an unmarked white van, and exited his vehicle dressed in jeans, t-shirt and a baseball cap.

obama hypocrisy gun control

According to Crump, who was briefed by a state attorney, Raja never showed his badge to Jones. “It’s unclear what Raja said to Jones,” the Post reports,

but he said he saw a gun and fired six times. Jones, 31, who had a legal concealed carry permit, never got off a shot. He ran from the scene before collapsing 80 to 100 feet away. His gun was found somewhere between his body and the SUV.

Crump asserts that Jones likely died without every knowing that Raja was a police officer and experts agree that this is a possibility.

Crump carried a gun because he often played late night gigs and had to transport expensive equipment to and from performance spots. Yet he also encouraged family members to legally obtain a firearm for protection if they felt it necessary.

There’s indeed the strong probability that Jones’ race was a factor in the slaying. (Incidentally, Officer Raja is of Pakistani descent.) Yet there’s an argument to be made that Jones’ choice of self protection has likewise disqualified him as an ideal victim for the nation’s corporate news media and the “Black Lives Matter” movement to rally around. In fact, Jones brother, a professional football player, more than subtly chastised Black Lives Matter in the wake of the tragedy by declaring that “all lives matter.”

Along these lines, what is almost entirely beyond the realm of mainstream discussion is the fact that police throughout the country are being trained with military-style weaponry and tactics. There is thus a predisposition to assume the mindset that accompanies such training, making law enforcement increasingly poised to recognize the citizenry at large as an enemy–particularly if such a citizenry chooses to exercise its Second Amendment right.

The Mainstream Media is a Dangerous Joke (VIDEO)


Do you remember last year when the Number One Story on Mainstream Media was how much air pressure was in a football?  I do.  My heart sank.

When I was in News, we called this type of story “Tripe”, or “Leftover Garbage”, that we would add at the very end of the news, only if we had time leftover, as trivial nonsense to amuse people at the very end of a broadcast.  When Trivial Tripe became the NUMBER ONE STORY at the TOP of National TV News, I knew life had changed for the worse.

In this week’s episode of CONSPIRACY CORNER NEWS, I will discuss the sad state of what is called “Press”, and propose a radical new idea to directly combat this national disgrace.

When Mass Shootings Were Real (VIDEOS)


News reportage of mass shooting events over the past several years has changed markedly from coverage of such incidents just a few decades ago. Some media critics and researchers have pointed to mass shootings, including those transpiring on January 8, 2011 in Tucson Arizona, July 20, 2012 in Aurora Colorado, December 14, 2012 in Newtown Connecticut, and the recent October 1, 2015 event at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, to suggest that these incidents may have been influenced or even partly contrived with involvement of federal authorities. They reinforce their arguments with an impressive array of conflicting media reports and unrealistic “official” narratives concerning these events as potential evidence of government deception.

Whether or not such claims are true, there can be no doubt that each referenced event has been inordinately sensationalized by corporate news media and national political leaders to advocate for stricter gun control, mental health, and police state measures, even though criminologists maintain that the number of mass shootings has not increased since the 1990s.[1]

Like the curious 1995 mass shootings in Dunblane Scotland and Port Arthur Australia—events capitalized on by political leaders in those countries to pass harsh gun control measures and expressly invoked by President Obama just hours after the Roseburg shooting—researchers and independent news media point to a potential agenda behind the intense publicization of mass shootings throughout the United States.

As this author has argued, although it may seem an extravagant assertion, one must ponder whether there is sufficient reason to consider whether certain US government agencies are involved “creating” or embellishing some of these mass shooting incidents. One need look no further than the history of Operation Gladio, or FBI involvement in what one investigative journalist terms the “manufacture” of terror events, documented respectively by scholar Daniele Ganser and journalist Trevor Aaronson, to conclude that a lavishly-funded military-intelligence-media complex has for at least forty years demonstrated a sheer contempt toward the Western body politic that has in some instances resulted in mass murder.[2]

A hypothesis may be at least partly demonstrated that a similar dynamic holds true for mass shootings through careful analysis of news coverage on mass shootings transpiring prior to the heavy federal involvement in local and regional law enforcement and specific shooting incidents that have only intensified in the 14-year purported “war on terror.”

The following preliminary examination suggests how the news consuming public was afforded much more lucid and enduring depictions of mass shootings by journalists in past decades. In other words, many years before internet technology became essential to assembling stories, journalists reported accurate and demonstrable facts to their readerships on mass shooting crime scenes and their dynamics in very short order, giving the reader abundant and consistent information to understand what really happened in such tragic events.

Reportage on mass shootings in the 1990s and prior is at significant variance with how such incidents are presented today. For example, in corporate news coverage of the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre integral facets of the story changed in the immediate wake of the event. Conflicting information surrounded how the shooter gained entrance to the school’s interior, what weapons the shooter employed in his attack, the types of wounds the victims sustained, even the identity of the assailant and nature of the emergency response, all of which are fundamental features of a criminal investigation that in many past instances was quickly and unambiguously relayed to the public.

Similar features have plagued coverage of many other mass shootings in the US in recent years. At the Aurora Colorado theatre shooting in 2012 some eyewitnesses came forward to contend there were two or more culprits involved—a claim contradicting the official narrative that one James Holmes was the sole assailant. Further, Aurora police chief Dan Oates stated to reporters immediately following the event that officers responded to the incident and apprehended Holmes in 90 seconds—a remarkably short time given the event’s almost certain chaos. Oates then states that his personnel eschewed ambulance service for injured parties, transporting the wounded to local hospitals in police cars—a startling and implausible admission by a leading law enforcement official with clear implications for probable negligence and civil liability.

Further, despite the movie theater being equipped with an extensive network of state-of-the-art video surveillance, to date no video footage has been released to the public that James Holmes was inside or for that matter anywhere near the premises in the period leading to the shooting. Along these lines, one eyewitness, Corbin Dates, asserted in several interviews with major media that there was more than one individual involved in the shooting—none of whom resembled Holmes.

Coverage of, and emergency response to, the October 2015 Umpqua Community College shooting was similarly bizarre. “Early media reports stated that a 20-year-old male had fatally shot at least 13 people,” 21st Century Wire’s Shawn Helton writes, “but that was later downgraded to 10 fatalities including the gunman, with another seven injured before being changed again to 10 killed and nine wounded at the UCC campus. Eventually, the suspected gunman turned out to be 26-year old Chris Harper Mercer, who we were told repeatedly had been ‘neutralized’ (shot) by police during a gun battle on campus. However, 48-72 hours later, it was revealed that the ‘lone gunman’ Harper Mercer had committed suicide, dying of a self-inflicted gunshot.”

The above inconsistencies and implausible features in official narratives of US mass shootings resound in those listed below. Nevertheless they are repeated almost without question by corporate news media.

The question remains, have such anomalies and informational lacunae characterized official pronouncements of major mass shooting incidents before federal law enforcement agencies became so heavily involved in processing crime scenes and advising local police and emergency response services?Journalistic coverage of three significant mass shootings where federal involvement is absent is presented below to argue that more recent mass shooting events possessing curious and seemingly inexplicable features in fact require far closer scrutiny from capable intellects and the broader public than they have thus far received.

University of Texas Shooting – 1966

The most well-known mass shooting in US history took place at midday on August 1, 1966 when 25-year-old Charles J. Whitman terrorized the University of Texas at Austin’s campus from the observation ledge of the 27-story UT Tower, utilizing an array of rifles to shoot 45 pedestrians, 12 fatally. On August 2 the New York Times ran two comprehensive reports of the event, detailing the horror though police and eyewitness testimony. “Students, professors and visitors ran for cover,” United Press International reporters on the scene wrote.

In the story’s initial paragraphs the reader is apprised of the event’s resolution: “An off-duty policeman, Romero Martinez, who had responded to a call on his radio, inched his way around a wall at the top of the tower and fired six bullets into the sniper with his service revolver after the sniper shot at him.”

The shooting is rendered more vivid through testimony from an array of traumatized witnesses relating their experiences.

”Denver Dolman, who operated a bookstore at the edge of the campus, said a young Negro student was riding his bicycle toward the Texas Union Building … The bicycle wavered and the boy appeared to fall onto the sidewalk.”

“John Scott Allen, 18, a freshman, was watching. A bullet smashed through a window and struck him in the right forearm.”

“Leland Ammons, a law student, was standing beside Billy Speed, a policeman, when Mr. Speed was shot.”

“Ruth Kiykendall, who works on the 18th floor of the tower, called to a friend in a building nearby. ’Somebody’s up here shooting in the tower,’ she gasped. ’There is blood all over the place.”

Austin Police Chief R. A. Miles explained that Whitman murdered his wife and mother in the lead-up to the mass shooting. “Hours later, Chief Miles said, Whitman took a trunkful of guns, food, and water to the top of the university landmark,” the story reads.

Several photographs augment the prose, including those of policeman Speed being carried away, and another presenting and describing in detail the “weapons found on” the “observation platform of the university tower … a 6 mm rifle with telescopic sight, a Remington .35-caliber rifle, a 12-guage sawed off shotgun, a carbine, a 9 mm Luger and a .357 Magnum pistol.”[3]

On August 3 the New York Times carried followup stories that included excerpts from candid interviews with Whitman’s immediate family, a reproduction of notes from Whitman’s psychiatrist, and a detailed consideration of remarks from expert physicians on the potential role played by a pecan-sized brain tumor found during Whitman’s postmortem examination. All such content was unambiguously presented to the public in less than 48 hours via the nation’s “paper of record,” and remains as evidence of how such horrific events were chronicled in recent US history.[4]

University of Iowa Shooting – 1991

Indeed, the initial historical record established by journalists on the scene suggests that specific and unequivocal information on other US mass shootings has been speedily related to the people. For instance, in the late afternoon of Friday, November 1, 1991 Gang Lu, a doctoral candidate studying physics at the University of Iowa, shot and killed four colleagues and wounded a college administrator and her assistant, the former dying of her injuries the following day. On November 2 the New York Times ran a story including eyewitness accounts and statements from university and area law enforcement officials describing how the event played out and suggesting Lu’s possible motivations.

“A university spokeswoman , Ann Rhodes, said the student, Gang Lu … methodically searched out his victims. He had been disgruntled over his failure to receive an academic award for his doctoral dissertation, she said.”

The story continues to succinctly lay out the event’s chronology and resolution—each of which, if we are to conclude that the Times reporter was working on a deadline for the paper’s August 2 late edition, were ascertained and related to the press within hours.

A dreary, snowy school day had just begun to wind down when the shootings began at about 3:40 P.M. University officials and the police said the gunman came upon a group of students and professors in Van Allen Hall, the physics department’s building, and killed the four men [three professors and a graduate student colleague] without saying a word.”

The professors had each been involved in Mr. Gang’s doctoral work, and the researcher had been a rival for the honor he sought, Ms. Rhodes said.

Mr. Gang then stalked out of the building and ran two blocks to Jessup Hall, the main administration building, which faces the campus common. There he injured the women in the office of academic affairs, where he had recently filed a complaint.

The video below provides an overview of area police response to the shooting.

“The shootings lasted 10 to 15 minutes, said Iowa City’s Police Chief R. J. Winkelhake. Campus police officers responding to the shots found Mr. Gang about 10 minutes later, sprawled on an office floor beside a .38-caliber revolver. ‘He was alive at the time but with serious head wounds,’ Chief Winkelhake said.”[5]

As in coverage of the UT Austin shooting, less than 48 hours later the Times elaborated on the investigation in a subsequent report, drawing on the observations of university and local police; no federal agencies or officials appear present.

The discovery of five of Mr. Lu’s letters after the shootings has convinced investigators here that he had detailed plans to inflict deadly violence on a number of university employees,” Johnson County District Attorney J. Patrick White explained at a November 3 press conference.

Joined by the University of Iowa’s president, Hunter R. Rawling 3d, and other university officials, Mr. White today painted a portrait of a darkly disturbed man who drove himself to success and to destruction.

Despite the perception of Mr. Lu among those who knew him as an outstanding scholar in theoretical space physics, Mr. White indicated that there was a sinister edge to Mr. Lu’s character well before the shootings.

In the letters … Mr. Lu reportedly named his victims, said William Fuhrmeister, the university’s public safety director. None of the letters were ever mailed, the authorities said. Mr. Fuhrmeister, the university’s public safety director, said Mr. Lu had left instructions with acquaintances to mail the letters. The letters were apparently turned over to the authorities after the shootings.

In the letters, other targets besides the six shooting victims were also named Mr. White said, but he and other officials refused to disclose their identities.

Other credible sources are on the record, further describing how the event was experienced. “Dr. Van Allen,” for example, “a professor emeritus of physics, was in the building when the shooting began at 3:42 P.M. ‘I didn’t hear anything,’ he said. “I was up on the seventh floor doing some work. At about 3:45 P.M. a young colleague of mine dashed into the office and said, ‘I recommend you don’t open the door until I hear it’s O.K.’”[6]

Unlike the hastily organized memorials following recent college shootings that curiously take place on the same day, Iowa’s university-wide service at the campus’ basketball arena was not held until November 7–almost a week after the shooting.[7]

Stockton Elementary School Shooting – 1989

Details of other school shootings from years preceding the war on terror era are likewise swiftly and accurately provided in conventional news coverage, typically relying on eyewitness testimony and remarks from law enforcement and emergency response officials concerning the investigation and event.

On January 17, 1989, Patrick Purdy, a 24-year-old incorrigible with a substantial criminal record, brandished an AK-47 rifle to attack 400 to 500 Southeast Asian refugee children playing outside the Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton California. A total of 30 sustained injuries and five of the children perished in addition to the gunman, who committed suicide following the assault. “‘He was just standing there with a gun, making wide sweeps,’” according to teacher Lori Mackey. “She said she ran to her classroom window when she heard what she thought were firecrackers, and saw a man standing in the schoolyard, spraying gunfire … ‘There was mass chaos. There were kids running in every direction,’” Mackey said.

A wounded child attended to by a San Joaquin County EMS worker outside the Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton California on January 17, 1989.

There were a dozen students lying on the ground,” an 11-year-old mother of a Cleveland Elementary student told reporters. “‘It was very frightening.” “Ramon Billed 3d, a student, described seeing a schoolmate shot. ‘I just saw him fall down,’ Ramon said. ‘His head hit the ground. the teacher grabbed him and dragged him inside the other classroom’ … Another pupil, Roberto Costa said the shooting started during his reading class. ‘The bullets were hitting the walls,’ he said. ‘Everybody got scared.’” A passerby “heard gunfire and ran to the scene. ‘I tried to get a pulse, couldn’t get a pulse,’ he said, referring to a pupil. ‘I was hoping an ambulance would show up. It seemed to take forever.’”

Again, in less than 24 hours reporters recorded the event, the background of the shooter and his every essential movement on the scene, even the number of bullets fired and the property damage caused via information from those assembling the criminal investigation and the recollections bystanders. “He opened fire on the westside of a group of portable classrooms,” AP writers noted,

then moved to the east side and continued firing across the blacktop where children were playing toward the main building about 250 yards away, [Deputy Police] Chief [Lucian] Neely said. He was no closer than that when he shot himself in the head. About 60 rounds were fired; in some cases the bullets went completely through the main school’s building and came out the other side to fall spent on the L-shaped school’s front lawn, Chief Neely said.[8]

In followup coverage the crime scene is described via on-site accounts. “Overnight, workmen patched the 60 or so bullet holes in the south wall of the brown stucco building and scrubbed out bloodstains. But only about a quarter of the 970 pupils showed up.”

The assailant’s approximate movements in the prelude to the shooting are also recorded.

On Tuesday, just before noon, [Purdy] arrived at the Cleveland School in his 1977 Chevrolet station wagon, burned the car with a molotov cocktail in a Budweiser bottle and walked onto the crowded school grounds. There he opened fire. He shot at least 106 rounds. “He was not aiming as much as spraying,” said Captain [Dennis] Perry of the Stockton Police Department. Children began to crumple. The shooting lasted about two minutes. Then Mr. Purdy put the pistol to his right temple and fell dead against a school wall.[9]

Concluding Observations

Journalists covering mass shootings twenty or more years ago usually relied predominantly on local police officials and eyewitness accounts to chronicle such events. Information related in such reportage was consistent and accurate in nature, and was quickly related to the reading public. Such reports were produced at a time when news organizations often had only telephone and facsimile to gather content. In light of the above, and in particular the fact that we now live in an internet-fueled “information age,” how can one account for the the almost uniformly poor and sometimes cartoonish reportage of today’s mass shootings?

The overall coverage of shootings since at least 2011 has become unreliable and slipshod, with the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre the foremost example of ambiguous, confusing and ultimately irresponsible reportage largely based on state and federal law enforcement officials commenting under the cover of anonymity. Federal agency involvement in homicide and similar crime investigations no doubt tends toward the potential politicization of such events. This is particularly the case as the leadership of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, and similar entities is appointed by the given presidential administration. Such bureaucrats understandably recognize their allegiance to this political power and are readily appease its given agendas.

Clear examples of federal interference in local and regional criminal investigations and attendant press censorship may be found in the major political assassinations of the 1960s, in particular the murders of President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., where significant public confusion still abounds. More recently, the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City suggests a juncture where federal intervention became increasingly commonplace, ultimately transforming the narrative of that event and how it is called up in popular memory; from a demonstrable government “false flag” attack to a strike against America’s heartland by the enemy within–an unstable, anti-government drifter, comprising the template for the so-called “lone wolf,” a now commonplace term in US police state parlance.

Hungry for information to develop stories under deadlines and editorial pressure, journalists are effectively incapable of questioning the pronouncement of official sources. Fearful of alienating powerful relayers of information, they place in abeyance their commonsense discernment of what may or may not be plausible to a situation where their understanding and expertise is limited. This is all the more reason for the concerned citizen to take heed. The plethora of recent mass shootings and array of disorienting news accounts accompanying each should be carefully considered, particularly in light of the more trustworthy and consistent journalism of such tragic events from the 1990s and prior, a journalism far less subject to disinformation and unclouded by prevailing political agendas and goals.

CBS’ 60 Minutes Interviews America’s Liar-In-Chief


Obama is an unindicted war criminal, a shameless demagogue, a serial liar, a moral coward, a disgrace to the office he holds.

On Sunday, CBS correspondent Steve Kroft interviewed him on 60 Minutes – giving him a prominent propaganda platform, everything pre-scripted, largely asking softball questions instead of holding a rogue president’s feet to the fire responsibly.

Not a chance on mainstream television, a medium for the proliferation of Big Lies on issues mattering most, notably when government officials or retired generals and admirals are interviewed.

Obama’s interview featured a litany of Big Lies and willful coverup of high crimes of state. America’s economy is deplorable. Protracted Main Street Depression continues, things getting worse, not better.

Obama bears full responsibility – exclusively serving Wall Street, war profiteers and other corporate favorites, willfully and maliciously thirdwordizing America, half the population impoverished or bordering it, the once prosperous middle class close to disappearing altogether.

Not according to Obama, insultingly saying: “(T)here’s no reason why…every single American, no matter what they look like, no matter where they come from…can succeed. And that’s my goal as president. That’s what I think about every day. And that’s what led me to run for president in the first place.”

Rubbish!! His corporatist agenda exposes his war on ordinary Americans and fundamental freedoms, beginning on day one in office, continuing relentlessly. His goal: creating a nation of rulers and serfs, militarized for absolute control, tyranny by any standard.

He handed America’s wealth to Wall Street crooks and other corporate bandits. He’s been more ruthless than any of his predecessors, at home and abroad.

He’s waged multiple wars of aggression throughout his tenure – direct and proxy ones, responsible for millions of casualties, targeting Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Donbass, Yemen, and partnered with Israel against Palestinians – while letting homeland needs mattering most go begging, exploiting ordinary Americans ruthlessly, causing devastating harm to millions of struggling households.

He lied about his war on Syria, raping one of many countries on his watch, displacing half the population, causing a refugee crisis along with millions from other countries, devastated by US aggression, using ISIS and other cutthroat killers as proxies, US foot soldiers trained to commit atrocities, ludicrously claiming he wants America kept from becoming more militarily involved.

Turning truth on its head, adding: “We are prepared to work both diplomatically and where we can to support moderate opposition that can help convince the Russians and Iranians to put pressure on Assad for a transition…”

“(W)e are not going to…try to reinsert ourselves in a military campaign inside of Syria – ignoring US warplanes bombing Syrian targets daily on the phony pretext of striking ISIS, Washington’s ally, not enemy.

He’ll continue arming and otherwise supporting imported ISIS and other takfiri terrorists. No so-called “moderate rebels” exist, a convenient fiction endorsed by media scoundrels.

He spurned Putin’s overture to work cooperatively against terrorists in Syria, absurdly claiming his effective campaign is counterproductive, making things worse, not better – worse for his regional imperial agenda, what really concerns him.

The Latest NYT Propaganda Piece On Syria


The Times is a virtual US administration/Pentagon house organ. Its articles read like imperial press releases, real journalism entirely absent, making sensationalist tabloid operations look good by comparison.

It’s latest propaganda piece headlined “US Aims to Put More Pressure on ISIS in Syria” – polar opposite its agenda, ISIS and other takfiri terrorists its proxy army battling Assad, what Times editors, columnists, correspondents, and contributors disgracefully suppress, what’s vital to report.

The Times claiming Washington and rogue allies are “preparing to open a major front” against ISIS in northeastern Syria is a bald-faced lie, the latest willful deception from America’s so-called “newspaper of record” – its leading lying machine, deliberately betraying its readers.

“President Obama last week approved two important steps to set the offensive in motion over the coming weeks, officials said. Mr. Obama ordered the Pentagon, for the first time, to directly provide ammunition and perhaps some weapons to Syrian opposition forces on the ground,” said The Times.

“He also endorsed the idea for an increased air campaign from an air base in Turkey, although important details still need to be worked out.”

Fact: All Syrian opposition groups are extremists, terrorists, no so-called moderate elements exist, or enough to matter. Claims otherwise are a ruse.

Fact: Any increased US air attacks will continue waging war on Syria, supporting ISIS and other terrorist ground forces.

“As recently as Friday, Mr. Obama said he would take all steps necessary to combat the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. The new approach relies on Arab fighters whose commanders have been screened by American forces and Kurdish fighters who are more battle-tested and whose loyalties Washington can count on,” said The Times.

Fact: The so-called “new approach” is the same old dirty one, apparently intending to be stepped up, aiming for more death and destruction, harming ordinary Syrians most, assuring continued human floods seeking safe havens, many wanting refuge in Europe.

How long EU countries most affected will put up with Obama’s war remains to be seen – its refugee flood straining their ability to cope, measures taken so far wholly inadequate, a bandaid over a festering wound.

Obama is a serial liar, again over the weekend, telling reporters “(t)he top line message that I want everybody to understand is, we are going to continue to go after ISIL. We are going to continue to reach out to a moderate opposition.”

False!! His agenda is polar opposite. Instead of explaining it, The Times reported it like gospel – deliberately deceiving its readers.

It claimed “(s)enior administration officials say the new offensive holds promise and may change the dynamics on the ground.”

After four-and-a-half years of Obama’s all-out campaign to oust Assad, short of bombing Damascus and sending in hordes of US troops, conflict was largely stalemated until Russia intervened.

It’s only in day six so too early to know it its campaign is decisive.
But it’s already made a difference. ISIS and other terrorist are panicking, US policy in disarray, frantic to come up with Plan B – for the first time facing a formidable adversary, Putin committed to defeat the scourge of terrorism Washington created, first in Syria, perhaps Iraq next.

The Times repeated the Big Lie circulated by Obama and neocons infesting his administration, claiming Russian operations are “directed largely at Syrian groups that oppose President Bashar al-Assad…”

Fact: It targets all terrorist elements in Syria. So-called moderates or rebels are misnamed. They’re all imported cutthroat killers, US foot soldiers against Assad and the Syrian population.

The Times marches in lockstep with US imperial policy – supporting its ruthless agenda, irresponsibly bashing Putin’s efforts for peace and stability instead of offering high praise.

He represents the best chance for world peace. He’s precisely what’s needed to challenge Washington’s rage for endless wars. The entire free world applauds him. No amount of Times propaganda can change that!

“The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty look innocent, and that’s power; because they control the minds of the masses.” –Malcolm X

Most people already know that the state-controlled media is bought and paid for from the top to the bottom. For those that didn’t know, there are 6 corporations worldwide feeding the masses through their financed propaganda in an attempt to rearrange reality into a perceived reality they want you to believe in.

As a case in point, a top German Journalist and Editor, Dr. Udo Ulfkatte, has gone public with some shocking admissions on his exposé concerning the media worldwide. He basically admitted that the entire mainstream media is totally fake! Those are his words. He said he was paid and used to educate and lie to the public, as well as how the media is trying to bring war to America. Dr. Ulfkatte also stated that the CIA supported him and informed him on how they get control over all of the major journalists.

“We know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American people believe is false.” –William Casey CIA director, 1981

No wonder why 67% of the American people do not trust the news media. There is little to no truth in these people. The good news friends is that we still have FOX News, right? Wrong! FOX News owner Rupert Murdoch has partnered with sharia compliant Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Tala, who owns a stake in FOX, as well as Twitter, Citigroup, ABC-TV, Disney.

Alwaleed has stated, “A strong American government is not good for us.” FOX has been used as a moderate for far too long. They have no absolutes. Therefore, there is no difference between them and what America complains about. Let me explain. If FOX is not trying to sabotage a Republican debate by attacking the leading contender in an attempt to hand over the presidency to Hillary Clinton (Megyn Kelly-Donald Trump), it may well explain why FOX News is one of the top ten financial contributors to the Clintons foundations. This may also explain why FOX also put out an article on Sept 3, 2015 titled “Poll says Hillary and Trump are unpopular: why they could win anyway.” This article was posted during Trump’s highest polling numbers and Hillary was being exposed for another high crime against the American people. However, we know that Clinton’s Twitter account came out as 56% fake or inactive, as well as little to no support for her presidential run.

Keep in mind, Trump, love him or hate him, is gaining major favorable support nationally while Clinton is not in the minds of the American people as a credible candidate. Also, 40 to 60% of all comments made by the network are completely contrived or blatantly false. FOX is also known for pulling both sides of the aisle into a debate (Lawbreaker vs. Law abiders), only to gut the pith and marrow out of our blood-bought rights. The reality is that what they are debating is unconstitutional and, therefore, illegal, rendering it null and void (Obama care, Gun debates, abortion, homosexuals getting married, etc….). Psalm 94:20

“There is no good government but what is republican…[T]he true idea of a republic is ‘an empire of laws, and not of men.’ That, as a republic is the best of governments, so that particular arrangement of the powers of society, or in other words, that form of government which is best contrived to secure an impartial and exact execution of the law, is the best of republics.” (Article 4 Section 4 United States Constitution) — John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

America, If you are not careful, the media will have you hating the people who are being oppressed (Law-abiding peace lovers) and loving the people who are doing the oppressing (Law-breaking war mongers). To further solidify my point, I end with a quote attributed to David Rockefeller, who allegedly said in 1991 in Baden, Germany:

We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

America, you may choose to look the other way, but you can never again say you didn’t know.

High-Speed Scripted ISIS Show Morphs Into Awkward Potential WW3 Trigger Scenario


Anyone who has made a conscious decision to get their news and information from any source other than CIA’s mainstream media knows by now that the ISIS “official story” is a complete fabrication with no resemblance to the reality of the situation. It’s a surreal tale rolled into the spotlight and thus into the minds of Americans around the spring 2014. A psyop that really took off a few months later with the James Foley, now famously staged green-screen fake beheading video and a psyop that has not looked back since.

By the end of 2014 many of us started wondering how this high-speed ISIS psyop show might end given the speed at which it was moving. Back then, as soon as alternative media and independent investigators uncovered one thing about ISIS another psyop was being put out. At times it seemed like no one could keep up with the staged stories. Throughout human history it’s hard to imagine a faster moving PR campaign where the organization went from completely unknown to the most talked about entity possibly in media history, all of it almost overnight.

And here we are in late 2015, over a year since the show began and we are all witnessing in Syria what could morph into an ugly world war 3 scenario as Russia steps up as a true opposition to ISIS in Syria. Did Russia, like many of us, get sick of watching the ISIS show and watching western media lie every day about their role? Perhaps the Russians frustrated because they thought they had blown the roof off of the ISIS psyop once and for all when they put out the video proof of the fake beheading production video. Regardless of the reason, the situation is now real and a real reason for everyone to be particularly watchful for more blatant ISIS lies exposed to the world in real-time.

With Russia leading the way to impose a real blow to the U.S.-Israeli led ISIS proxy army, Obama, Kerry and the rest of the U.S. politicians are scrambling for words and new angles to approach this from. Desperate to justify U.S. presence in Syria, now all we are hearing about from US officials is the at least partially fake “Syrian refugee crisis” all while quietly admitting they want a “regime change” in Syria. The truth is coming out slowly only because the U.S. has no choice but to keep saying something, anything that they hope will help keep their out-of-control war machine. The problem for the U.S. is that there is nothing they can say to justify their actions in Syria. That is, their quiet support for ISIS who they created, funded, armed and have supported along with Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other NATO countries.

What all of this amounts to is that the western U.S.-Israeli globalist elite could soon have their backs against the wall. However, unlike the days of the Mujahideen training and radicalization of “terrorist” fighters in Afghanistan and unlike the Iran-Contra arming of Iranian “terrorist” in the mid 80’s or the arming of Saddam in Iraq, all of which were for the same long term (PNAC plan) reasons, this time they (the U.S.) openly have denied supporting, arming, feeding, funding or creating ISIS. Thus this time the globalist lies are wide open for the world to see. That means the international community including the Russia, China and the rest of the world is seeing for themselves the true colors of this ruthless, aggressive and oppressive western cabal.

Thanks to the failed ISIS psyop the world will continue to process this growing awareness that it (the rest of the world) is oppressed by an out-of-control tyrannical empire that regularly flexes its power and military might on humanity in the name of fighting terrorism.

With the ISIS psyop now being slowly chipped away at with every Russian bomb, missile and air strike, the future of the world is being decided. Will this anger the western cabal forcing them to play a new card? Will the make the Westerners desperate? Will this soon trigger WW3?

The not-so-brilliant idea of creating yet another terror organization in the post “war on terror” era to use as a tool to advance their PNAC plans was met with a few things the globalist may not have anticipated. It appears they underestimated the power of independent media and the internet of things. They seem to have underestimated how information travels today and is shared by others. They seem to have only focused on their ISIS promotion campaign not ever thinking the plan might backfire and be exposed.

The ISIS show was hatched as a marketing and public relations campaign from the get-go. ISIS has had more attention and airtime than some of the most powerful multinational corporations in the world. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the ISIS show has been truly a super-star caliber master marketing campaign beyond any marketing campaign we’ve seen before for any entity.

Is there anything ISIS has not done since the spring-summer of 2014? Think about the exponential growth of the ISIS brand. Close your eyes and step back from the whole picture and realize the magnitude of the psychological operation. The brand has been pushed into every aspect of life. ISIS has been mentioned in light of almost every other topic. ISIS and global warming, ISIS and LGBT, ISIS and college student recruitment, ISIS and conspiracy theorists, ISIS and babies, ISIS and Christians, ISIS and women, ISIS has taken turns killing every group and label out there and every time they did it the mainstream media was right there to tell you all about it.

The U.S. mainstream media and the “reports” obtained from “Intelligence sources” and mainstream media seem to always know what ISIS is thinking, what they are doing, where they are, where they are going next, what they want to accomplish, how they are feeling, we have even been fed Commander injury reports on ISIS! We are told everything about ISIS except the main questions everyone has been asking from day one- How did ISIS come about? Why can’t anyone track their conversations, communications, general supplies, food, water, ammunition supply, and why so much trouble pinpointing their location? How about why do they still exist? How are they supposedly fighting all the NATO countries and as small as they are, how are they still somehow winning?

The headache inducing ISIS show is too painful to watch and now Russia seeks to put an end to this headache. Let’s all hope that something good comes out of this. Let’s hope that more leaders around the world join in to help turn off the ISIS psyop and deny the Western globalist terrorists anything they want.

Preparing for the worse and hoping for the best

On a personal level let’s all prepare for the worse. Let’s be ready in every way possible. Prepare for what the globalist had been saying for many years could be a “continuity of government” scenario as we approach a potential monetary collapse in addition to a WW3 scenario. Realize that these global territory battles are coveted by greedy evil men of power who hate you and I and they will destroy the world if they have to, to have a chance at power over the world.

No one knows how this battle to flush out the ISIS show will end so let’s pay particularly close attention over the coming weeks and months. Do what you can to help others who are awakened prepare but don’t waste too much time on the asleep zombies who refuse to believe anything is wrong. Show them the truth and move on. Very likely they will tune you out as this information conflicts with their personal comfortable paradigms. Do not underestimate the power of this self-constructed personal comfortable paradigm.

To those living in that comfortable matrix paradigm there’s a good movie coming on tonight, it’s NFL football season, Fantasy Football is getting really interesting, they’re ordering pizza tonight, their favorite TV show is on tonight or they might have tickets to the game tonight. Does any of this sound compatible with the ISIS WW3 reality stated above?

Humanity is being divided along the grounds of consciousness, knowledge, understanding, awareness and true wisdom. Many people are pulling toward consciousness awareness and wisdom while many are being stripped of any true consciousness or the ability to ever think critically again. This consciousness and awareness sifting I believe is giving birth to 2 survival classes of humans- those who will survive and those who will not. The ones who will not survive are loading up their bodies with deadly vaccine toxins, eating deadly genetically altering GMO food and absorbing numerous toxins in addition to daily brainwashing and electromagnetic exposure and thought programming.

In case you still believe these ensnared zombies have a chance of awakening (and some still do) don’t get too hopeful about this. The time is late, the mass mind control and DNA altering experiment is in a very late phase, and the mechanisms of this mind control are very penetrated by now. So don’t give up on them but don’t hold your breath either.

Instead lets commit to improving ourselves today. And among other things that means improving our knowledge and understanding about the world around us. Let’s acknowledge what is happening and let’s hope for the best. Most importantly let’s be vigilant and aware of what is happening so that whatever happens we can be vessels for humanity’s cause. Those of us that are awakened are awakened for a reason, aren’t we? We have to believe in something and I believe it’s all for a reason, even if I (we) can’t figure it all out just yet. So let’s commit to fulfilling our purpose knowing that as long as we do that, the rest will happen according to the order of nature.

Some things, perhaps we ultimately can’t fully control, at least not immediately. But we can do the little things that push humanity in the right direction. This may be all we can do. If so, then I’m accepting of this. Are you?

Mainstream Media Admits In Storytelling Fashion: ISIS Commander Is U.S. Trained!


Anyone getting their facts, news and information outside the spectrum of the tiny information bottleneck known as mainstream media is probably tired of hearing it by now. The Islamic State or ISIS is a terror organization created, funded and armed by the U.S. and its allies particularly Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. These U.S. created new world order thugs trained primarily in Jordan and many of them are the exact same “rebels” who have been admittedly armed and trained by the U.S.. Many of these terrorist “rebels” turned ISIS fighters are known to be visited and befriended by global terrorists like John McCain and others. These facts are all well established in recorded documents and independent media reports all over the world. The ridiculous, treasonous and intelligence-insulting never-ending story behind ISIS has been rehashed and exposed too many times. To understand who ISIS is, and to understand the PNAC plans (Project for a new American Century) is to understand almost the entire scenario unfolding in Syria and the entire Middle East as humanity is slowly lead down the path of world war 3. It also allows you to understand how the globalist are setting up America for a future false flag attack to take away even more of your liberties, all to be blamed naturally on ISIS.

Make no mistake however, whether we like it or not, the ISIS show rolls on. It rolls on because there are still many brainwashed Americans who still actually believe the ISIS show and for those people, writer “Mitchell Prothero” a “special correspondent” for “The McClatchy Company” has submitted an article which mainstream media was more than happy to circulate. The article tells a fantastic, very detailed and almost romantic story about a nice smiley face (Israeli looking) man named ‘Abu Omar al Shishani’, formerly known as ‘Tarkhan Batirashvili’. In this story you are led to believe this nice man was trained by the U.S. to fight as a Syrian rebel.

Incidentally, posting a smiley face image, I believe is done deliberately. This is propaganda to make the story more believable. For comparison, here in the U.S. when someone is wanted or if there is a “manhunt” for someone, the picture of the person being sought after is always a scary, angry looking picture NEVER a smiley face picture. They do this for psychological reasons.

In this recent ISIS commander story writer Mitchell Prothero details many things about Abu Omar’s life as if he knows the guy, has followed his journey and has interviewed him personally. The story has a warm feel as readers are lead to almost root for Abu Omar. As the story goes on, it implies that Omar coincidentally transferred his skills over to ISIS then moved up the ranks as an ISIS commander.

This latest mainstream media ISIS glorification psyop is just another slap in the face to Americans by CIA and their lying mainstream media. This is much more of a psyop in my opinion than predictive programming and lesser magic of showing you what they are going to do before they do it. The globalist are now perfecting the art of actually admitting to its readers the truth, while at the same time making them believe the complete opposite. They are not even hiding that the U.S. actually trained this now top ISIS military commander.

The psyop is very different here as the reader attempts to pull in the audience into a long human interest story filled with so much detail that you forget that ISIS is supposed to be a totally independent terror network that rose out of nowhere as pure enemies of the U.S. and (of course) Israel.

In comparison with the Al Qaeda psyop of the 1990’s leading up to the 9/11 false flag, can you imagine a mainstream media article on MSN or CNN say in 1998-1999 admitting that the U.S. trained Al Qaeda? Even though it became common knowledge to truth seekers after 9/11 most people were not informed about this back then and the mainstream media would certainly not have admitted this then. This goes to show us how sophisticated and profound the government propaganda is today.

Fast forward to September 2015- the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the globalist western cabal’s PNAC plans roll on and world war 3 has unofficially begun in Syria. CIA’s/Mossad’s ISIS continue their ISIS show on humanity. In one year ISIS remains unscathed, forever invisible and undefeatable to every military unit in the world. They remain ever-growing, will never attack Israel and are always everywhere and in your face, all at once as they enjoy their endless influx of untraceable supplies, weapons, food, water, public relations, fame, glamour, and even their own gold-backed currency!

So deep and so ongoing is the ISIS psyop that most people in alternative media (understandably so) ceased covering the daily ISIS show long ago. Some of us are still occasionally covering unique developments but by and large ISIS is faded away. And how can anyone disagree with that? All things come to an end, but when governmental systems pay to keep a show going eventually the normal functioning human minds simply ignores the show. Like a music band or a TV show that has passed it’s prime or “jumped the shark” the ISIS show in the minds of many people ended long ago.

Ironically, I believe that BECAUSE the day-to-day ISIS show ended long ago, that is precisely the reason the control system was able to sneak an absolute psyop story on alternative media about a week ago. Remember this story talking about how “50 spies say ISIS intelligence was cooked”? I spoke to some people who admitted they saw the story and they were confused. Hopefully all truth seekers who came across this story were confused (at least at first) when reading it. I know I was. How can you not be confused? Since when do “spies” come out and admit something like this to the world?? The “spies” all “admitted” that they were told to report the ISIS threat in such a way that it would “portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are”

There is no reason to believe this entire report is not yet another psyop on the American people if not on the very military brass and spies themselves. When everyone is being lied to and fooled then the confusion only stacks up even higher, doesn’t it? I believe more than ever before, the U.S. military themselves especially the high ranking brass are being absolutely lied to in order to preserve the grand agenda of the new world order. From a tactical point of view it would make sense to lie to the very generals and colonels that are leading the way and use them also as patsies. We’re all being lied to and this entire report about spies admitting that they were told to lie about ISIS is just more propaganda to make people think that ISIS is an unbeatable super-human force. They are not! And this is just another underhanded counter-intelligence-style propaganda to justify more and more war against a perceive monster sized enemy. The only strength ISIS has is whatever the U.S. and Israel and its allies have given it via their training, arming, funding, promoting and glorifying. Everything else is just a psyop to keep the show going.

And this psyop now is extending to where the mainstream media is pointedly telling you the U.S. trained ISIS commanders, while at the same time making you think ISIS is a real enemy of the U.S.. It doesn’t matter how the mainstream media and its appointed special writers try to color up the story with human interest and romance, the story remains the same. The U.S. has trained and created those fighters who are now posing as ISIS and we should not be moved or fooled by any future events attributed to ISIS. Just close your eyes and when you hear “ISIS” tell yourself “CIA and Mossad”.

This is the story of the ISIS show which we have endure for over a year now. This is important because ISIS will very likely be the weapon they will use against Americans to deal the final blow to it. ISIS has been built up as the mother-ship boogey-monster of terror groups primed to unleash its venom on America. It’s the greatest terrorist force for the new world order and that is why they have so much publicity, endless weapons, supplies, and indestructibility. They are the chosen masked assassins for the globalist to usher in their new world order and they are not going away.


Never give up your guns. Exercise your 2nd amendment rights and arm yourself against a tyrannical government that sponsors terrorism against its own people to expand its own power over those people in the name of keeping them safe. Start educating yourself about the need and the roll of having a Constitutional Militia. We the people must wake up soon and take back the power of the sword. There is a method for working toward this goal but it starts with education. I highly recommend everyone watch this video series by Dr Edwin Vieira on the Constitutional Militia and how it is necessary for the security of a free state.

Until the power of the sword is properly restored back to the people through state empowered Constitutional militia of the several states, the threat of false flag terrorism is almost impossible to stop. It is important to continue exposing the ISIS psyop show and elevating awareness and consciousness about this evil agenda so that the awareness may potentially play a role in discouraging future attacks before they happen or exposing future attacks in the early phase to change the course of the aftermath. We never how much impact the power of knowledge and awareness of this issue will have on humanity. So let’s keep exposing these stories and events and hope it will bring out the best in humanity.

Western Media Ignore US Responsibility For Refugee Crisis


Post-9/11 Internal and external human floods followed Bush aggression on Afghanistan and Iraq, then Obama continuing his wars and his own on Libya, Syria, Donbass, Yemen and complicit with Israel on Palestine, as well as other turbulent hot spots caused by Washington’s imperial agenda.

Major media explain nothing about why people flee countries of origin for safe havens elsewhere. They ignore millions of Palestinian refugees, forcibly displaced internally, in neighboring countries and elsewhere by Israeli aggression since 1947-48.

Or the millions of Mexicans and other Latinos forced north to America by economic, not hot wars. Or over a million Ukrainian refugees Russia accepted following Obama’s war on Donbass, most remaining – humanely treated, given proper food, shelter and medical care.

Russia’s Children’s Rights Commissioner, Pavel Astakhov, and its Federal Migration Service head, Konstantin Romodanovsky, said large numbers of Syrian refugees will be accepted on condition they violate no laws.

Moscow responsibly treats refugees and asylum seekers humanely, aiding them through a transition period until able to become self-reliant – getting no Western praise for its efforts, in stark contrast to deplorable policies by America and other European countries.

Western refugee crisis media coverage ignores its root cause – a made in America disaster, from endless wars of aggression, murdering or displacing millions, countless numbers fleeing abroad for safety, trying to stay alive, adjust to new surroundings and create better futures for themselves and loved ones.

New York Times editors focused on a woefully inadequate European plan to address the problem – leaving the only viable solution unexplained, ending imperial wars, humanely treating its victims through a transition period to rebuild their lives, holding Obama and culpable allied officials fully responsible for their high crimes, and paying the full cost of rebuilding ravaged countries.

Instead Times editors endorsed a deplorable European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker plan to accept a mere 160,000 refugees distributed among EU member states by mandatory quotas – ignoring many millions desperately needing help, likely millions more to follow with endless US wars continuing.

Washington Post editors called the Obama administration’s refugee crisis response “woefully inadequate” without explaining its root cause.

White House officials saying America will accept around 10,000 Syrian refugees in fiscal year 2016 ignores millions of other desperate asylum seekers – or their ability to survive up to a two-year US screening process designed to reject, not accept them.

WaPo editors called Obama’s disgraceful effort a “progressive policy,” while ignoring his full responsibility for creating crisis conditions in the first place.

In 2015, Washington accepted only a few hundred Syrian nationals seeking asylum, ignoring millions it harmed in need, desperately requesting help not forthcoming – not in America, woefully little in Europe, blaming victims for Western-caused misery and Putin for Obama’s Syrian and Donbass wars.

US immigration and asylum policy is a travesty of injustice – ignoring America’s full responsibility for floods of people seeking safe havens, disfavoring people for racial, ethnic and religious reasons, interning unwanted refugees in virtual concentration camps, maintaining an 18 – 24 month visa vetting process disqualifying most applicants.

US and European policies favor rich, well-born and privileged nationals and emigres. Others aren’t wanted, or at best, deplorably tolerated.

WaPo editors ignored appalling human rights abuses, against unwanted refugees and citizens of offending nations – official policy in Western countries, mainly America.

Wall Street Journal editors absurdly called the refugee crisis “what the world looks like when the West abandons its responsibility to maintain world order” – meaning greater US-led EU military intervention, escalated wars and carnage, devastating ravaged countries more than already.

“Committed to withdrawing from the region, President Obama chose to do almost nothing,” they said – ignoring his genocidal wars responsible for human floods of desperate people.

Journal editors urged “world order built on Western ideals,” – “militarily” as needed, assuring greater crisis conditions than already.

US/Western solutions to everything involve endless wars, carnage, mass displacement and human suffering – a policy of genocide for wealth and power.

2 Weeks Later, Virginia Shooting Hoax Completely Vanished From Mainstream Media


Throughout alternative media over the last few years many people have written about what to look for in a false flag. Many including yours truly have outlined steps to look for when trying to diagnose the next government false flag. Many of us have a good grasp on what to look for. Let’s review some of these common trends:

1- Police,  military or federal agency “drills” are almost always going on at about the same time of the staged event.

2- The accused patsy is always followed by and/or in contact with FBI, police or other government agency for months or years prior.

3- Accused patsy is often aided by the same federal agencies with the acquisition of weapons needed for the false flag event.

4- Patsies almost always end up dead usually due to “suicide”, deadly “manhunt” or they are captured in a physical or mental state that ensures they won’t be speaking much.

5- Patsies almost always leave behind one of those bizarre “manifestos” which conveniently outline all their intentions that seems to always fit perfectly into the scripted official story.

6- Mainstream media jumps on the story with the usual over-the-top 24/7 coverage to make sure you are aware of the story, always thinking about it, and you are afraid.

7- Damaging contradicting facts, video footage, audio, documents or social media/online revelations are always completely ignored by mainstream media.

8- When applicable, conflicting information is almost always erased, blocked or closed out by Facebook, Twitter or YouTube etc.

9- The control system resorts to accusations of “conspiracy theories” very early on to discourage anyone from looking too deep into the story being presented.

10- Early on, we see strange acting family members on TV crying without tears, displaying inappropriate affect and emotion, and quickly calling for gun control or some other political agenda in response to the event.

11- Politicians are also always on TV immediately calling for new legislation in response to the event. The political “solution” always takes away more and more of our freedoms and gives more and more power to the federal government.

These 11 items are just a glimpse of the repeated script we’ve seen played out here in America every time the controllers orchestrate a false flag crisis-actor event.

After the recent Virginia TV Reporter staged shooting event at the end of August 2015 however, I want to add one more crucial item to look for only because we’re seeing it now so blatant and so obvious.

12- If the false flag terror, shooting or bombing event is exposed convincingly, and it seems like too many people are figuring it out due to newly released evidence then pull the story completely out of the public consciousness as a form of damage control by having the story vanish completely from the mainstream media news.

This is what we are now seeing. It’s been slightly over 2 weeks now and the media has said nothing about the Virginia TV Reporter shooting like it never happened. Could it be that this silence which began over a week ago is directly related to the overwhelming evidence of a second take in the staged shooting incident? This evidence did after all put a major crimp in the authenticity of the story. It was the death blow in a long list of entirely unbelievable coincidences. Some lies are difficult to recover from once too many people know and as we are seeing sometimes it’s best to pull the whole story out of the media and hope it fades away for good.

Here’s something for everyone to consider. Perhaps the initial shock value and the reaction of the masses to the shooting was the whole point of the shooting. I’ve discussed another possibility recently which everyone should at least consider and that is- what if it was intended for truth seekers and alternative media to figure out that this latest shooting was fake? Sounds ridiculous? Not if you consider that we are still in the final days of operation Jade Helm where Jade 2 artificial intelligence software is still reading, absorbing and observing the reactions and actions of the human domain. That’s right. It is quite possible that humanity is being played with ridiculous false flag events just to observe and record the effect it has so that artificial intelligence software can use that information for future strategizing against the human domain. This is a primary stated purpose of operation Jade Helm and for that reason all truth seekers should be thinking on their feet and highly vigilant.

So this lightning speed removal of the Virginia shooting story from mainstream media should also serve as a reminder that researching every item of a false flag and spreading the information early on is important and sometimes can change the course of how the story is being told as we are seeing here.

Ironically, I spoke about this topic briefly almost a year ago when few people noticed that the 2 year Sandy Hook shooting anniversary came and left while the mainstream media practically ignored the anniversary of the entire event. This no doubt was in response to all the information that became available about the Sandy Hook crisis actor shooting that many people didn’t know the year before. CIA’s mainstream media clearly made a strategic decision to tune the event out of people’s minds in December of 2014. Will they make the same decision this year or will they stage a new shooting to revive the Sandy Hook feelings again? Will they coach a new eyewitness analogous to the “I shot Bin Laden” psyop of Spring 2015?

As I mentioned in my article then regarding the Sandy Hook ignored anniversary phenomenon, if the Sandy Hook shooting was real and all those children died in a bloody massacre, think of how big of a deal it would be to ignore the second anniversary of the supposed largest mass shooting in the history of the United States involving children. That’s exactly what happened December of 2014 and again this seems to be another sign to look for with failed false flags.

Thanks to the internet and the information and technology age we live in, we can now diagnose government false flags in nearly real-time. It’s exciting to dismantle government and mainstream media lies as fast as we’re able to do it today. Let’s just hope these skills humanity has developed for sharp discernment for false flags can be harnessed in a more meaningful way.

Despite the skills humanity has amassed at diagnosing false flag events we still lack the skills at ensuring proper and swift justice and punishment is carried out on the perpetrators. And we have also failed at forcing police and government agencies to be transparent with all records surrounding the investigation of these false flag events. They continue staging these events in part because they continue to operate with both immunity and in secret. All of the investigative records continue to be kept a secret from the general public.

So let’s hope truth seekers, activists, investigators and independent media can use the recent already-forgotten Virginia TV Reporter shooting to implement these necessary improvements when the next false flag event comes around. For if we cannot do this then we are just trading information with each other for the sake of information while nothing really gets done about the corruption behind these events.


This latest false flag reminds us that as politicians use these events to call for more gun laws and less freedoms, we should be using these events to call for more and more transparencies in investigations for the purposes of defending against staged events and false flags. We need a truth and transparency mass counter effort. Let’s support those who are putting their lives and reputations on the line to expose events like the Sandy Hook show, Boston bombing, Virginia shooting and other false flag politically driven events because important counter corruption and counter secrecy legislation could potentially gain traction.

Ultimately, as I mentioned earlier, we are seeing the result of information-sharing and that is why it’s important to share information and help spread the truth whichever way you can. With the Virginia shooting completely faded (for now) from the pubic mind, let’s consider this another small victory for truth. Remember that the controllers usually don’t let go stories so quickly. They usually want to get as much out of a story as possible. So let’s begin familiarizing ourselves with the psychology of the presentation of these stories. What drives these stories into the news and what drives them out? Let’s ask questions like- why does one story in the news last one day while another lasts for weeks? Observing these patterns and developing the skills to answer these questions will make all of us experts at diagnosing propaganda, staged news, and crisis actor false flags.

Crooked Journalist Returns To Broadcasting

Will coverDeath Squad Fran’s” North American Tour

“Brian Williams will make his return to the air September 22 on MSNBC as part of a team of anchors covering Pope Francis’ first trip to the U.S.,” reports.

Williams won’t be MSNBC’s only anchor during the pontiff’s lengthy visit – but he will be the most closely watched for obvious reasons and his presence is sure to goose ratings for the cable news network’s coverage of Francis’s lengthy visit. Williams’ return to air happens on September 22, which coincides with Francis’ scheduled arrival in Washington, D.C. Williams will not be on the road with the pope; he will be anchoring from New York.

In June, NBCUniversal announced Williams would return to NBC in August, but would be assigned to MSNBC rather than return to the anchor chair at NBC Nightly News. Nightly News fill-in Lester Holt was named permanent anchor of Nightly.

Last February, NBCU and Comcast suspended Williams for six months without pay after it was revealed that he falsely claimed on NBC’s Nightly News that he was involved in a combat situation in Iraq in early 2003 – a claim the anchor also had made elsewhere, including on Late Show With David Letterman.

Mainstream Media Goes Berserk

meygen kelly

The practice of objective journalism has been effectively banned from the body politik. The social culture is driven by the embodiment of an unceasing drumbeat of disinformation; spoon fed prevarications and carefully shaped distortions, projected by a mass media that is in the tank for protecting the ruling elite. The myth that the press is endowed with an inherent courage to confront the establishment has been laid bare for any honest observer to witness. However, the problem is that the bulk of the marginally functioning intellects that still accept the mind control of the corporate media, continue to linger on in their dream world of obeying the prevailing order. 

Some order, the nation is breaking apart at the seams all over the country. The reign of terror that appears on the boob tube, news site or printed rags from the accepted moguls of the new social media keeps pushing out the tired diatribe that the system still is working well.  

PLEASE, wake up and smell the coffee. 

Running the gambit of ideological shades of grey, the mainstream media all share the same common trait; keep the can kicking down the road. It is a universal prerequisite to achieve a long lasting career in the bowels of the beast that a propagandist must ignore truth to power. 

Mastering linguist games played to conceal and confuse the extent and depth of the unmitigated corruption in the political and economic system is the criteria used to advance one’s position in the mainstream media. 

You know this is true, but even the most enlightened and forewarned consumer of news often watches or reads the discourse from network, cable or the national mainline press. 

When the party line machine is rolling, the content in the cyber zone world is a love feast. The talking heads, point their venom towards the outsiders, as they share notes on how to bring down the impure, while swapping tails on how to push contract negotiations to extract a higher salary for producing the newspeak that their media masters demand. 

So it comes with great satisfaction when a charmed princess of the dark side melts down in public and loses her cool. Inside Source Says Megyn Kelly Could Be Prepping to Leave Fox News and ‘Go Mainstream’ is one such example. 

Author Garbriel Sherman said during a Newsmax interview on Thursday, that Megyn Kelly could consider ditching her hit show “The Kelly File” to seek a spot with a more “mainstream” news outlet. 

“You know there was some talk before [Kelly’s] most recent contract that she was flirting with CNN to kind of jump from Fox to CNN,” Sherman said. 

“I think she wants to leave all options on the table and if she gets down in the weeds and really slugs it out with Trump that would hurt her brand.” 

The uproar over the aspiring debutant of mean losing her protected status is so unsettling to the executives at Fox News that the little darling needed to take time off to lick her wounds. This episode from the first edition of trick the candidates that are not part of the good old boys club, took its toll on the entire media culture. 

When Kelly plays the “got you” scenario, there is no pretense of objective reporting. This twist on the hallowed format of gonzo journalism is nothing similar to the Hunter S. Thompson tradition of created analysis.  

When Trump refuses to observe the rules of polite vilification, a shocked media flips out. These gatekeepers are deficient in eating humble pie. The celebration of political reporting is evidently absent in sincere discourse.  

What has the mainstream so perplexed is that their script for selecting the daily sound bites has been stripped from their control. This fact has the lackey stars in a funk. They have become irrelevant. 

The driving force in the paper chase in every news cycle is the ratings. When a Bernie Sanders strikes pay dirt in motivating the progressive groupies, the media pundits forego their protective practices to shield Hillary Clinton.  

The populist message, even when it promotes a socialistic solution has the correspondents tripping over each other to get on the ground floor. Who expected such enthusiasm? 

The Wall Street corporatists are not amused. So much money has been placed into the hands of the Clinton’s and Bush’s that the rigged contest should have just plotted along. 

While there are no guarantees that the excitement of an entertaining show will last, the most likely conclusion will not provide an administration that can reverse the damage that the last several decades has already taken.   

Once upon a time there were newsmen like Edward R. Murrow and Eric Sevareid. The profession of journalism was held in esteem. When the carnival side show features the “bimbo” stars of bleached hair, cosmetic adjustments and eye candy, the substance of the actual news product suffers greatly.  

Add into the mix the serial deception that comes so readily from trained lawyers, who aspire to be newsreaders and you get a dialogue of contrived illusion. 

The refreshing refusal to engage the fifth estate for the establishment protection racket needs to be savored. When people obtain their daily dose of news from ordinary folks via YouTube, you have a much better chance of seeing the real uncensored deal.  

However, even a longtime defender of the establishment, like former CNN alumni Howard Kurtz, takes his show to FAUX News reported the following: 

“And media insiders. Who are sometimes indistinguishable, since they often appear on the same shows. 

Together, they mocked and minimized Donald Trump as a sideshow. Among the worst offenders is the Huffington Post, which still refuses to end its little stunt of putting Trump stories in the entertainment section, with one writer calling him a “fringe candidate” (who happens to be the Republican presidential front-runner). 

As Trump soared, the insiders soon shifted their stance to one of bemusement: Well, he’s hot now, but he’ll burn himself out. Always happens. We’ve seen that movie.” 

Forced to admit the self-evident about Trump is an attribute that is in small supply by the professional porters carrying the political bags for the two party elites. 

Also that other cable news outlet, CNN is involved in its own tizzy. Carly Rips CNN Debate Criteria, Calls On RNC to Intervene points out the length the process is stacked against the insurgence candidates.  

“Fiorina’s deputy campaign manager, Sarah Isgur Flores, hammers the network for its reliance on polling conducted prior to the first debate, in which she is widely perceived to have dominated the “undercard” event.

“It’s a simple question: Will we have a fair debate process or will the political establishment keep ignoring grassroots Republicans?” she asks.” 

Keeping Fiorina off the stage with the also ran candidates in the Donald Trump reality show, might well be a blessing for Carly. She may well have another chance to appeal to the rational voters who watch the JV debate.  

Since the corporate media is posed to promote anyone but Trump, the caveat is added that a Republican female does not qualify as ANYONE. 

There is only room for one feminine Democrat in this gala and transgender Clinton is the pick. 

Going berserk to maintain the status quo is in the DNA of the Nielsen rating superstars. Getting and staying at the top in rankings follows a formula that is in a crisis from the challenge of The Donald.  

A breath of good news comes from an unlikely source. Why Al Sharpton Is Happy With His MSNBC Demotion, and so should any honest person who despises the race hatred coming out of the Reverend. Since Brian Williams will join the staff of other losers, maybe Megyn Kelly should apply for the slot vacated by Sharpton? 

Traction for the populist message is real and growing. This fact has the MSM climbing a wall of fear and accountability. The practice of truth and consequences is being played out by the population.  

If the only spike in ratings comes from the eyeballs watching the “Make America Great” movement, it is time for a true American-First policy renaissance that transcends the personality of Trump, and becomes the battle cry of all responsible politicians no matter what party their affiliation.  

When the media becomes uncomfortable with their own self promotion, you know their scheduling lineup is ready for a shake up. The best weapon to seal the demise of the lying media culture is to pile on each and every phony journalist who betrays the trust of the public.  

A culture that featured a Piers Morgan as a reputable source of wisdom and proposition is a sick society. Now that the Kelly File is slipping into a black hole, it is time for Roger Ailes to do some soul searching and replace the panel with Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum for the next Fox News presidential debate on Jan. 2016 in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Anyone who watched both debates on August 6, 2015 knows that the early format was conducted by professionals as opposed to a “60 Minutes” hit squad.

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,”, 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.”
  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,”, 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,”, 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.

The Russian Media Is Talking About What Is Coming In September, But The U.S. Media Has Been Strangely Silent


Why does the Russian media seem to be far more on the ball than the mainstream media in the United States much of the time?  Could it be possible that Russian reporters have more freedom to talk about important issues than reporters that work for the major corporate conglomerates in the United States do?  Of course the Russian media is far from perfect.  They put out pro-Russian propaganda just like the U.S. media puts out pro-American propaganda.  But I must admit that I often find that Russian news sources are willing to tackle controversial issues that the mainstream media in the United States would not touch with a ten foot pole.  This includes the critical events that are coming up this September.

Even after everything that has been said and written in the alternative media about what is going to happen during September, most Americans are still completely ignorant about the history changing events that are going to take place next month.

First of all, the most important template for global governance that the United Nations has ever dreamed up is going to be launched at a major conference from September 25th to September 27th.  The launching of this “new universal agenda” is such an important event that the Pope is going to be traveling to New York City to give the address that will kick off this conference.  This new plan is known as “the 2030 Agenda“, and it is being called “Agenda 21 on steroids”.  This is one of the most significant steps toward global government in the history of the world, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is saying virtually nothing about it.

Secondly, we also know that a major push for the establishment of a Palestinian state is being planned for September.  It has been widely reported by the international media that France plans to submit a UN Security Council resolution which would formally recognize a Palestinian state for the first time ever.  This is one of the most critical moments in the modern history of the Middle East, and yet the mainstream media in the United States is saying virtually nothing about it.

In September we also have the end of the Shemitah year, the fourth blood moon, and the end of the Jade Helm exercises.  All over the Internet there is rampant speculation about a major stock market crash, devastating natural disasters and the weird “coincidences” that are pointing to the date of 9/23.

And even though articles and videos that discuss all of these things are going viral all over the Internet, the mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about all of it.

Fortunately, there are international news sources out there that are willing to address these topics, and some of them just happen to be in Russia.

When I first came across Sputnik News, I didn’t quite know what to make of it.  At first I thought that it might be some random blogger that had started up a news website and had chosen a really bad name.  But it turns out that it is actually fully owned and operated by the government of Russia.  The following comes from Wikipedia

Sputnik is an international multimedia news service launched on 10 November 2014 by Rossiya Segodnya, an agency wholly owned and operated by the Russian government, which was created by a Decree of the President of Russia on 9 December 2013.[1] Sputnik replaces the RIA Novosti news agency on an international stage (which remains active in Russia)[2] and Voice of Russia.

And I have to admit that Sputnik News is willing to address many things that the corporate-controlled media in the U.S. simply will not touch.  For example, the following is from a recent Sputnik article about the financial crash that is coming this fall

The founder of Trends Research, who predicted the “panic of 2008,” believes that soon we will witness the crash of a global stock market and predicts “the economic earthquake [that] will send reverberations around the world”.

“There’s going to be panic on the streets from Wall Street to Shanghai, to the UK down to Brazil.” Celente told King World News. “You’re going to see one market after another begin to collapse.”

Analyst Larry Edelson took the fear to the next level as he even predicted the exact day the catastrophe begins, or, as he called it, a “rollercoaster ride through hell.”

“On October 7, 2015, the first economic super cycle since 1929 will trigger a global financial crisis of epic proportions.” He said.

“It will bring Europe, Japan and the United States to their knees, sending nearly one billion human beings on a roller-coaster ride through hell for the next five years. A ride like no generation has ever seen.”

RT is another Russian news outlet that I find to be superior to U.S. news organizations in a lot of ways.  In one recent article, RT was even willing to discuss the coming end of the Biblical Shemitah year in September…

Indeed, the hysteria over next month has reached such a fever pitch that even  seasoned experts are cracking open their dusty Bible for signposts.

The seventh year of the Biblical agricultural cycle – as set down in the Torah – just happens to fall on September 15, 2015. This is a real millennial event, with a so-called tetrad of blood moons (four consecutive lunar eclipses) all falling on Judaic religious days. For those who track such astrological occurrences, a number of major events have occurred at the end of the “7-year business cycle,” as it is now commonly known.

In 2008, for example, the world suffered its worst financial crisis in decades, while in September 2001 the United States experienced the worst-ever terror attack on its territory, as well as a massive sell-off on Wall Street when markets reopened on Sept. 17.

Whatever the case may be, Americans – increasingly wary of the weak underbelly of their economy – are gearing up for fireworks in September. But even if nothing happens, all that prepping and stockpiling – much like in the runup to the overhyped Y2K non-event – will certainly boost economic performance across the board.

And if you can believe it, even Pravda has talked about what is coming up this September.

When I was growing up, Pravda was regarded to be the official voice of the evil empire.  Whatever Pravda reported back in those days was generally thought to be pro-Soviet propaganda.  And that was generally true at that time.  But today, Pravda has a lot more freedom to discuss the issues that really matter than a lot of U.S. news outlets do.  For instance, earlier this year Pravda also discussed the potential for a financial apocalypse in September

Again, 2001 brought social conflict, financial calamity and it was the pivot point that triggered a cascade of negative events that would go on for years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Another 7- year period would elapse and bring us to Sept. 29, 2008. On this infamous day stocks skidded, with the Dow slumping nearly 777 points, the biggest single-day point loss ever. Approximately $1.2 trillion in market value vanished in a twinkling. 

Again, seven years to the month exactly from the 2001 crash. But apparently no one noticed this pattern because the financial presstitute corps never mentioned it.

Why won’t the mainstream media in the United States talk about these things?

Is it because they are too busy talking about issues that are even more important?

Of course not.  Just consider some of the top headlines from the front pages of major U.S. news outlets on Monday…

-“Exclusive: Jon Stewart to host WWE SummerSlam

-“Sharon Stone’s nude photos stoke controversy

-“Florence Henderson to join final ‘Dancing with the Stars’ cruise

-“McMansions are back — and they’re bigger than ever

That is some top notch journalism right there.  With such cutting edge topics to deal with, no wonder the U.S. media has no time to talk about the earth shattering events that are coming up next month.

So what do you think about the current state of the mainstream media in the United States?  Please feel free to share what you think by posting a comment below…

Bernays Mass Mind Control Tactics Loom In Background Of Jade Helm Psyop

edward bernays

To begin with, let’s reiterate that we are factually in the middle of operation Jade Helm 15 as of mid August 2015. Thus every major influential piece of mainstream media news currently being put forth is reasonably suspected of being part of this cooperative psyop. Notably, there is also a clear and verifiable history of CIA’s mainstream media working hand-in-hand with the U.S. Military Industrial Complex. That said, if you are not sure of this please do your research so you are able to appreciate a good perspective on this issue.

The stated goal of U.S. military operation Jade Helm 15 is to “master the human domain”. You may ask, how is this operation being implemented? According to U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) documents revealed by technology researchers the human domain will be mastered by controlling the individual’s environment. And that environment I would have to believe very much includes what mainstream media news they watch and are led to believe is true. Apparently someone decided that controlling the “environment” of the human can lead to the ability to control the human itself.

Anyone who familiarizes themselves with the work of public relation’s head pioneer Edward Bernays may recognize this ideology of how to control the masses. His ideas were very similar to what we are hearing today. It was Bernays who specifically said that the masses could be controlled by controlling the “circumstances” around them and “staging” situations to ultimately guide mass behavior. Here’s an excerpt from one of Bernays’ collections titled ‘Propaganda‘:

It might be better to have, instead of propaganda and special pleading, committees of wise men who would choose our rulers, dictate our conduct, private and public, and decide upon the best types of clothes for us to wear and the best kinds of food for us to eat. But we have chosen the opposite method, that of open competition. We must find a way to make free competition function with reasonable smoothness. To achieve this society has consented to permit free competition to be organized by leadership and propaganda.

Some of the phenomena of this process are criticized the manipulation of news, the inflation of personality, and the general ballyhoo by which politicians and commercial products and social ideas are brought to the consciousness of the masses. The instruments by which public opinion is organized and focused may be misused. But such organization and focusing are necessary to orderly life.

As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented.

With the printing press and the newspaper, the railroad, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can be spread rapidly and even instantaneously over the whole of America.

A strong admirer of H.G Wells who he quotes in his book, Bernays felt it was the DUTY of those in control to manipulate the masses because Bernays like Wells felt that this was the way to provide “order”. In fact the chapter this excerpt is taken from is titled “Organized Chaos”. Does any of this sound familiar? You probably already recognize that this idea of staging, manipulating and controlling the circumstance and the psychological environment of the individual is very much what today’s government, mass mainstream media and Hollywood is all about. And it certainly sounds a lot like the control aspirations and tactical implementation strategies behind today’s Jade Helm military operations for mastering the human domain. It just goes to show that nothing has really changed all these years. The controllers think exactly today like they did then.  

Now more than ever it is important for people to realize that there are many large entities that study and manipulate human behavior by rolling out staged situations, using key words, pushing predictive programming and by creating specific arguments, narratives and circumstances that put the individual in a situation where they are most likely to act in a certain way. Today it’s not just TV, radio, newspapers and magazines being used to guide the narratives but also social media and online trolls. All of this is for the sake of molding and shaping not just one act, but your regular and ongoing behavior into one that is predictable and fulfills the desires of the controllers. The predictability of your behavior as a result of this mass behavior manipulation is then used for several very important purposes- to control you, enslave you, and squeeze the maximum amount of profit out of you.

As already mentioned earlier, not only were Bernays’ propaganda techniques designed to control the behavior of the masses into a predictable and controllable process to be used as a tool for the elite to enslave and profit from the little people, but it is also important to note that Bernays himself felt these techniques were a necessity, even an obligation to implement on the controlled masses. Understanding this allows us to take sneak peak into the minds of psychopathic control freaks and allows us to see how they justify human suffering for the supposed greater good. Of course, the reality is that what they impose on humanity is for their OWN personal diabolical and callous satisfaction.

This also allows us to take a look inside the mind of the new world order. Inside the mind of today’s global elite, that is. This would appear to be the mindset behind Jade Helm. And why not? If you are the global elite and if you have access to super computers and software with capabilities to help with your goals why not do it?

The controllers were probably thinking, if we can get someone to predictably buy our products, order our cable TV shows, vote a certain way or take a stand on an issue exactly as we want them to, why not get them to accept their permanent enslavement or get them to believe that slavery IS freedom? That resistance if futile. Why not get them to believe that being a patriot makes you a terrorist? Or that being a corrupt criminal and dishonest politician makes you a candidate for the next presidential election?

Isn’t it time we stop this overplayed, predictable programming and mass mind manipulation? Isn’t it time we grab the script out of their hands and tear it up? How many times do we have to watch the exact same script play out over and over again before we finally take action to break away from this old paradigm? How many hard lessons do we have to learn? How many more painful false flag operations do we have to endure before we take action in our own lives?

The time to put to rest the same tactics of control, lies and deception is now. We are living in a renaissance period of consciousness and truth. Pulling the curtain once and for all on the globalist blueprint for enslavement is part of this excitement. We can understand what’s happening at a larger scale today because the globalist seem to always document what they want to do. This time they once again told us exactly how they would like to control us and many of us are now simply aware of these stated goals. They plan on doing it by controlling the environment and the circumstances of the individual and thus controlling the individual through predictive situations. Mystery solved.


Interesting how the controllers thought they would push the Jade Helm strategy on humanity without thinking humanity could counter with sound, peaceful, well thought out strategies. The counter strategy is simple. Be yourself and think critically on your own. Stand for what you believe in and break away from the collectivist mentality which they need as a critical backdrop to implement their plans. Stop thinking as a group and stop allowing every mainstream media story and Hollywood movie guide what you think next. Develop a new way to process mainstream media news keeping a safe mental distance from the primitive reactive effect of it and instead approach their stories from a more analytical point of view. Protect your mind from mainstream media news the same way you would protect your body from junk food in order to stay healthy.

So we’re predominantly talking about a new way of processing the messages put out by the control system. Realize that their messages are everywhere. Realize that we are in the middle of a war for your mind and you have to mentally arm yourself for survival. This is the nature of the war we are talking about.

The timing is perfect. Now is the time to question everything and cherish your consciousness more than the material things of this world. Cherish who you are and protect those memories knowing that someone out there thinks your journey and your consciousness is irrelevant. That is why they’ve been pushing collectivism to condition you to think that your personal journey is irrelevant in the bigger picture.

Who would have thought that one of the greatest resistance to the control freaks and elite is simply remembering who you are and how special each and every single one of us is? This is about self-ownership and accountability to yourself and a high power not to a small group of defective, lower class, psychopathic global financial elite. Doesn’t that make sense?

Do you understand this basic message of mental freedom and complete breakaway from the staged and repeated script continuously implemented by the control system whose main process is controlling your psychological environment? If you do then you are mentally free. Share this message with others who are still mentally enslaved in a world of blind faith, coincidences, randomness and “non-conspiracy” theories. Remind them that everything really is staged. Every important piece of mainstream media news and Hollywood message today is planned, organized and carefully being implemented with a carefully thought-out clear cut purpose.

Remind others that the thing that will make life enjoyable and meaningful again, for many people overwhelmed with the news of today, is actually getting back to that state where things really occur in a random and spontaneous manner (i.e. removing the controllers). The notion that someone or something greater than us is in control will bring mental healing. That great feeling is restored once you break away from the matrix of lies we live in now. Anything else outside of this is a continuous circling around the same synthetic path of repeated deception and staged situations played out many times in the past. This is a road of certain enslavement, learned helplessness, mental weakness and fear only soothed by temporary entertainment and distractions provided by the very same system who put you in this enslavement situation to begin with. This is not a good way to live your life.

“Lone Wolf” Terror And The PsyWar On American Public Opinion


“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society,” Edward Bernays observed almost a century ago. “Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” Bernays’ insight reflects the view of corporate statists he regularly commissioned with.

Intertwined with complex public relations exercises, corporate news media’s role today has far less to do with informing the public than it does with maintaining a perpetual tension and anxiety throughout the body politic. Through such tension the citizenry will further gravitate toward or even consciously advocate for heightened police state measures now peddled a prerequisite for public safety.

Recent quantitative and historically-oriented studies by USA Today and the Congressional Research Service (CRS) on mass murder in the United States provide much food for thought especially since they suggest vast public misperceptions concerning massacre events that call out for further inquiry. More than ever, public opinion has been fueled by a corporate news media disproportionately sensationalizing certain mass murders while overlooking others that are at least as serious.

The CRS looked at an array of academic studies and FBI data to find an annual average of 31 mass murders (defined as four or more victims excluding the perpetrator). Importantly, mass shootings have increased only slightly between 2009 and 2013 versus preceding five year periods dating to 1999. Of these, about two thirds involve firearms. If the year 2012 was excluded from the latest 2009-13timespan that period’s average number of incidents (22.4) and fatalities (116) would have shown a significant decrease versus the previous two five year averages.

Prominent gun rights opponents such as President Obama and Michael Bloomberg have advocated for gun control measures. Their activism has been most vigorous following the 2012 events, in particular the mass shootings at Aurora Colorado and Newtown Connecticut, each of which now appear to have been “false flags” intended to bolster the case for scaling back the Second Amendment (e.g. here, here, here and here).

Despite these poorly understood and vastly propagandized events Aurora and Sandy Hook have been imbued in the pubic mind on a scale comparable to the September 11, 2001 “terror attacks.” This is the case even though there are now far more contradictions and unanswered questions concerning both events than when they initially transpired.

In the case of Newtown local and state authorities have had difficulty responding to numerous public records requests simply querying on the most fundamental documents to confirm whether the event ever took place as reported by major news media. The very news outlets sensationalizing the massacre have long since moved on to solicit the most recent bloodlettings in Charleston, Chattanooga, and Lafayette.

Corporate news outlets indeed know how the public fears being involved in such an event. According to one nationwide survey of adults highlighted in the CRS study,

Americans’ top fears include 1) walking alone at night, 2) becoming the victim of identity theft, 3) various risks of using the Internet, 4) being the victim of a mass shooting, and 5) public speaking.

Most Americans learn of catastrophic events from television news, and overwhelmingly rely on the video display of news to make sense of their world. The corporate media chieftains and their subordinate producers and editors overseeing the modern consciousness industry thus have free reign to manipulate the thoughts, fears, even the dreams of the populace, thereby shaping the psychic basis for what is deemed desirable public policy. They choose specific stories and gauge the extent of their exposure to craft national public opinion and dismiss others not upholding certain agendas, such as race-based social tension and gun control. As the observations below suggest, Time Warner’s CNN is a central agent in bolstering such perspectives.

A cursory examination of recent broadcast news may prove helpful in demonstrating today’s psywar on the American people. Coverage of the July 18, 2015 shooting at a military recruiting station and base in Chattanooga Tennessee, and the July 23, 2015 massacre in a Lafayette Louisiana movie theater are illustrative. Each incident resulted in profuse media attention, making the events impossible to overlook.

Yet equally tragic and alarming mass murders transpired on these exact dates with comparatively little reportage or commentary from corporate media. For example, on July 18 in Northern California one Martin Martinez was charged with the murders of three young children and two women, one of whom was a practicing physician.

chattanooga-cnnOn July 23 two teenage boys were taken into custody in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma as suspects in the brutal stabbing deaths of five family members. The scene was so disturbing that even responding police officers were visibly shaken, a rare story by NBC News noted. “The crime scene has taken a pretty heavy toll on officers who have come out here,” a Broken Arrow policeman remarked. “It hits close to home, especially when the victims are adults and juveniles. Our officers have a lot to take in.”

Comparing the coverage of these four comparable events that transpired on or around the same dates indexed by the LexisNexis database, one finds the privileged stories chose to impress upon the public mind the alleged problem of “love wolves,” their purported ideological predispositions—in these instances Muslim and Nazi-racist fanaticism—and the apparent ease with which they have obtained firearms.

How can one explain such disparate coverage? It may be attributable to the random nature of editorial decision-making at major news outlets. A more critical analysis, however, suggests a coordinated effort to maneuver public opinion behind the “war on terror” and continued public acceptance of America’s police state.

Can this merely be dismissed as “conspiracy theory”? It is well established that CNN and NPR have collaborated with US military psychological warfare experts in recent years. “CNN had hosted a total of five interns from U.S. Army Psyops, two in television, two in radio, and one in satellite operations,” Project Censored noted in the early 2000s, citing coverage of the phenomenon in both alternative and mainstream outlets.

The military/CNN personnel belonged to the airmobile Fourth Psychological Operations Group stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. One of the main tasks of this group of almost 1,200 soldiers and officers is to spread “selected information.” The propaganda group was involved in the Gulf War, the war in Bosnia, and the crisis in Kosovo.

The military personnel stayed with CNN for at least two weeks “to get to know the company and to broaden their horizons.” Collins maintains that “they didn’t work under the control of the army.” The temporary outplacement of U.S. Army Psyops personnel in various sectors of society began a couple of years ago. Contract periods vary from weeks to one year.

In light of the Sandy Hook and Aurora events, in addition to other sensationalized mass shootings like those referenced above, it is not unreasonable to question whether CNN and other major news outlets are again carrying out such exercises. Given the corporate news media and federal government’s accelerating arrogance and lack of accountability, would the public ever be privy to such a scheme?

With the above comparisons in mind one needs to seriously consider the extent to which CNN and other news outlets are again working with intelligence and/or military psywar personnel to essentially “brainwash the American public” on crucial issues such as gun control, as former Attorney General Eric Holder recommended in 1995.

There is an all too apparent intent behind today’s terrorist and mass shooting events—an insidious and fraudulent effort to rob people of not only their constitutional freedoms but also their peace of mind and ability to exercise basic free association in their communities. This brings a whole new meaning to the term “terrorism,” as well as the real parties actually implicated in the psychic torment of a once free nation.
