Bouquet Of Lies (VIDEO)

(Verify Events Research) We all know they are lying to us but the real question should be: How big and sophisticated are these lies? This is VER’s attempt at exposing the deceptions and lies of the puppet masters inside the Deep State and their corrupt puppets (political class). I created this compilation of video clips as an educational tool with the intention of connecting war lies to staged massacres (both overseas AND domestic) to false flags ops and events like 9/11.

In this short video you will learn how the Nazis mastered the use of actors and staged events to drive public opinion in support of domestic and war agendas and their parallels to today’s corrupt corporate mainstream media. You will see for yourself State Department’s lies, staging massacres overseas for war as well as domestic events like Sandy Hook and Cassidy Stay for domestic propaganda.

This video only scratches the surface of all the evidence and documentation we can provide to support the claims of thousands of researchers. See for yourself what is behind the façade.

Military Contractors Congratulate Themselves For Driving War Propaganda In 2016 Election


By: Claire Bernish, Anti-Media |

As if the United States required another reason to remain at war in perpetuity, defense contracting industry lobbyist group, Americans for Peace, Prosperity, and Security (APPS), recently praised itself for “driving the debate on foreign policy during the 2016 presidential election” — as though there were some debate concerning continued U.S. military involvement just about everywhere on the face of the planet.

Headed by former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, the obliquely-monikered defense industry agenda, er, interest group claims “the American president’s understanding of the challenges and benefits of American leadership around the globe has been vital,” in the video prominently displayed on its website’s home page. “The threat-matrix facing America today has never been broader,” Rogers’ narration of the video continues, “from ISIS and radical Islam, a nuclear Iran, to cyber-hacking attempts to disrupt our very way of life: our presidential leadership and emphasis on American security has never been more critical.”

Oh, how the smug irony — of military contractors whose interests lie in the same continuing military action that builds international resentment and fuels extremist actions against U.S. and allied troops and civilians — hurts.

As reported by Lee Fang in the Intercept, APPS’ self-laudatory tone continued in an email to supporters, praising the group for “pushing candidates on national security,” as pointed out by “highlights from many of our Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire forums showcasing the candidates’ views on defeating ISIS.”

With Rogers’ assertion in the promotional video that APPS’ mission is “to ensure the next president is prepared to address today’s threats on Day One” by “moving the candidates beyond just rhetoric and talking points” in order to “help elect a president who supports American engagement and a strong foreign policy,” those highlights read as if pulled directly from a pro-war propagandist’s pep talk.

“We also need to decide, in terms of these radical jihadists, what do we want to do?” Ben Carson asked an APPS forum in Dubuque, Iowa. “Do we want to contain them or do we want to destroy them? I vote for the latter, because you know they want to destroy us and there is no such thing as containing people like that.”

“I am sick and tired of hearing people on my side avoid the idea of an American ground component,” Lindsey Graham asserted at a Charleston APPS forum.

Mike Huckabee bemoaned lost opportunities at an APPS forum in Greenville, saying, “We should have been running hundreds, if not thousands, of A-10 Warthogs busting every time a truck with supplies was on its way to ISIS soldiers.”

During separate APPS events, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio implied the need for drawn-out action against ISIS. The former advised preparedness for the “long haul,” while the latter compared future engagement against the Islamic State to past fighting against the Taliban in Afghanistan — because that was such a stunning success. Yes, that’s sarcasm.

As if APPS’ support from former politicians, military officials, and current and former defense industry specialists weren’t telling enough, the site’s referencing of Thomas Jefferson’s involvement in the Barbary War, Madison and the buildup to the War of 1812, Truman and the “unthinkable challenges” of the second World War, the “Soviet bear on the march” as Reagan came to office, George W. Bush’s difficulties in the aftermath of 9/11, and Obama beginning his first term with “terrorists still plotting,” are truly indicative of the group’s attempt to appeal to an emotional, nationalist mindset.

“History has shown that American presidencies are often defined by foreign crises,” APPS’ Historical Perspective states — and it appears the group fully intends to ensure the next presidency will be no exception.

No Moderate Syrian Rebels Exist

syrian rebels

US claims otherwise are a complete fabrication. All anti-Assad forces are US-trained, armed, funded, and directed terrorists, taught the fine art of killing, committing atrocities and using chemical weapons – including ISIS, Al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra and various splinter groups.

The so-called Free Syrian Army and other alleged “moderates” exist only in US and go-along media propaganda reports, willful misinformation to deceive an uninformed public.

Wars depend on lies to gain popular support, or at least no significant opposition. Often they collapse under the own weight.

Putin’s Syrian mission shows the emperor has no clothes. If enough Americans pay attention and express outrage, Washington’s imperial Middle East agenda may falter, perhaps collapse. It’s already wobbly.

ISIS et al represent proxy US foot soldiers, imported abroad from scores of countries. They’re all legitimate Russian targets, all being battered by formidable air power to Washington’s consternation, wrecking its regional agenda – for the first time, a real challenge to its hegemonic aims.

Putin is effectively contesting Obama’s dirty game. Washington has no effective counter-strategy, increasingly transparent propaganda and dubious military moves alone, along with continued Russia bashing and fear-mongering.

In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee, two State Department officials repeated tired old Big Lies.

Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Anne Patterson and her European and Eurasian Affairs counterpart Victoria Nuland committed perjury – claiming Russian air strikes hit 85 to 90% “moderate” rebels and civilians in areas with no ISIS presence.

“Russia’s military intervention has dangerously exacerbated an already complex environment,” Patterson blustered.

“(T)his has not been a Russian fight against terrorism so much as an effort to preserve the Assad regime,” she duplicitously claimed.

Nuland remains infamous for orchestrating the coup against Ukraine’s sitting government, replacing it with Nazi-infested putchists – responsible for aggression against its own people and virtually every imaginable human rights abuse.

Her testimony was a litany of Big Lies, saying Assad “continues to barrel bomb its own citizens with impunity, perhaps even emboldened by Moscow’s help.”

“The vast majority of Russian air strikes are targeted in areas where the Assad regime has lost territory to forces led by the moderate opposition.”

“We are accelerating the work we are doing to support the moderate Syrian opposition and to protect Syria’s neighbors” – code language of US supporting ISIS and other takfiri terrorists.

“(W)e are awaiting further evidence that Russia is sincere in its claims to want to fight ISIL and save Syria for the Syrian people, rather than simply protecting the dictator who bears direct responsibility for the country’s destruction…The quality of our cooperation with Russia in Syria depends on the choices Moscow makes.”

It’s hard imagining anyone believes Nuland’s utter disregard for the truth. Her public record betrays her, revealing her deplorable neocon credentials – supporting endless wars of aggression, responsible for devastating mass slaughter and destruction.

“What would positive cooperation by Russia look like,” she asked? Cease its military campaign, “insist” Assad pull back, work with Washington and its (rogue) partners for resolving things diplomatically.

Who are the so-called “moderate” rebels Washington consistently touts? Where are they? Last month, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia can’t identify them. Washington provides no information.

“From the very beginning of the operation in Syria, President Vladimir Putin and other Russian officials have expressed the readiness to interact with the so-called moderate opposition,” Peskov explained.

“At the same time, it had to be stated that attempts to identify the so-called moderate opposition remained unsuccessful all the way.”

“(N)o moderate forces can be spotted in the patchy mass of terrorist and extremist organizations that pose a threat to Syria’s territorial and political integrity.”

“Regrettably, neither the US nor European partners, nor somebody else has been able to help us with this identification. Other countries are unable to point to some moderate forces capable of taking care of a settlement in Syria. Regrettably, there have been no tangible results.”

State Department spokesman Admiral John Kirby claims some (nonexistent) “moderate” rebels switched sides. Hot war success depends heavily on winning the propaganda one.

Legacy Of 9/11: Endless US Wars On Humanity

wtc site

A year ago article called 9/11 the mother of all Big Lies – the grandest of grand deceptions, state-sponsored criminality, the most heinous ever false flag changing everything.

Each anniversary is a time to remind people of the evil intent behind the incident. What happened wasn’t a tragedy. It was criminality on steroids against peace – perpetrated by America against humanity, a duplicitous scheme to convince people to wage war on terrorism, targeting designated bad guys invented out of whole cloth because US officials say so.

Endless wars against nations threatening no others followed that fateful day – continuing with no end in sight, combined with homeland police state terror targeting Muslims, African Americans, Latino immigrants and organized labor.

Fundamental rule of law principles were discarded – considered quaint and out-of-date. Washington rules alone decide things.

America is more militarized than ever in history – despite having no enemies except ones it invents. US streets are battlegrounds. Thousands of political prisoners languish in its gulag – at home and abroad. Torture is official policy. So is state-sponsored mass murder.

Independent nations are targeted for regime change. Illegitimate fascists are installed to replace sitting governments. Media scoundrels regurgitate state propaganda. Misinformation and Big Lies substitute for hard truths.  War is glorified in the name of peace.

Invasions and colonizations are called liberation. Plunder is called economic development. Raping nations is called democracy building. They’re destroyed to free them.

Might justifies right. Open, free and just societies aren’t tolerated. Human and civil rights are violated for our own good. Patriotism means going along with what harms us – sacrificing fundamental freedoms disappearing in plain sight.

Terrorism is what they do, not us. Global mass slaughter and destruction are small prices to pay. Whistleblowers are imprisoned for exposing government wrongdoing.

Monied interests alone benefit. Humanity’s survival is threatened but who cares. Endless wars for power and profit matter most – no matter the body count and cost in human misery.

No nation in history caused more harm to more people over a longer duration than America – on steroids post-9/11, launching 14 years of endless war on humanity, risking possible nuclear mass destruction able to end life on earth.

Bipartisan lunatics infest Washington. Obama wants congressional authorization for unlimited war. He has lots more death and destruction in mind – perhaps confronting Russia and/or China belligerently before leaving office, an act of madness if initiated.

America’s culture of violence glorifies wars in the name of peace –  reckless imperialism Michael Parenti calls “the process whereby the dominant investor interests in one country bring to bear military and financial power upon another country in order to expropriate the land, labor, capital, natural resources, commerce, and markets of that other country.”

War is America’s longstanding strategy for dominance – duplicitously claiming exceptionalism and moral superiority, forcing its will on others globally, spreading the Big Lie about democracy building.

The business of America is war, endless aggression for wealth and power. Obama is the latest in a long line of US warrior presidents. His successor will continue endless wars.

Money controlled duopoly power runs America. Names and faces of key officials are interchangeable. The outcomes of next year’s presidential election and key congressional races are predetermined. Voting is a waste of time.

Business as usual always wins, post-9/11 more than ever before.

US Phony War On ISIS

obama isis

On September 10, 2014, Obama lied claiming his intent “to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL” – adding “these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region, including to the United States.”

He willfully misled the US public saying he “ordered our military to take targeted action against ISIL to stop its advances…These strikes…helped save the lives of thousands of innocent men, women and children.”

Obama is a serial liar. Nothing he says is credible. His agenda is polar opposite his claims and promises. Previous articles explained Islamic State terrorists are US proxy foot soldiers.

Washington recruits, arms, funds, trains, and directs them the same way it used Mujahideen fighters in the 1980s against Soviet Russia in Afghanistan, as well as Al Qaeda and other likeminded takfiri groups today.

They serve US imperial interests, used against independent governments Washington wants toppled – replaced by subservient puppet regimes. Terror bombing Iraqi and Syrian targets has nothing to do with degrading and defeating them – everything to do with destroying vital infrastructure in both countries, balkanizing them for easier control and ousting Assad.

On the first anniversary of Obama’s declared phony war on IS, RT International headlined “1yr, 6,700 airstrikes & $4bn after Obama vowed to ‘destroy’ ISIS, jihadists still on offensive” – stronger than ever, controlling more territory, aided and abetted by US support.

Obama’s real war is polar opposite his phony “campaign of airstrikes…increase(d) support (for) forces fighting these terrorists,” preventing IS attacks elsewhere, and “provid(ing) humanitarian assistance to innocent civilians” displaced by devastating war.

According to the Pentagon, so-called “Operation Inherent Resolve” conducted 53,278 sorties in Iraq and Syria, including 6,700 airstrikes through September 8.

It lied claiming 10,000 IS “targets” were destroyed, including tanks, other heavy weapons and facilities. Washington supplies IS terrorists by airdrops and other means to wage its proxy wars – spending billions of dollars to advance its imperium, letting recruited terrorists do its fighting and dying.

RT explained “impressive-sounding (Pentagon) numbers” did nothing to change “reality on the ground where IS (terrorists) have only grown stronger.”

Propaganda about “a quick and easy victory” is belied by greater than ever IS strength and territorial control.

The most visible result of Obama’s wars is the human refugee flood they caused, numbers increasing exponentially as they rage – overwhelming European countries with desperate people undertaking hazardous journeys to find safe havens out of harm’s way, met with scorn and disdain most everywhere they arrive, treated horrifically under appalling conditions, victimized twice over, by Obama’s imperial wars and Western nations (especially America) unwilling to provide humane help.

World peace and security aren’t threatened by IS or other takfiri terrorists. America’s imperial agenda with complicit rogue allies bear full responsibility – waging endless wars of aggression, threatening humanity’s survival.

The War Rhetoric In Ukraine


(The Real Agenda) When a power seems to slip away from any corrupt regime, the default solution to regain power is to seek an internal or external threat. This threat is often fictitious, but if it successfully sold to the unconscious minds of the dumbed how people, the goal of regaining and even expanding power is usually achieved.

For all intents and purposes, Russia is the main enemy of Ukraine in the new military doctrine approved today by this country, its leader, Petro Poroshenko, posed as priorities the recovery of “occupied territories” and to request NATO membership.

“The new military doctrine (…) defines Russia as a military adversary of Ukraine,” reads the document released today by the Council of Defense and the Ukrainian National Security Office.

In addition, the document highlights the “highly probable use of large-scale military force against Ukraine as the main threat to national security.”

As a result, Ukraine will strengthen its military presence in the eastern and southern regions of the country, according to the Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko.

All the threats and challenges facing the Ukrainian militarily “are unfortunately linked to Russia and all of them have, unfortunately also (…) a lasting nature,” Poroshenko said.

The puppet government of Ukraine, who arrive to power after the coup d’etat against elected president Viktor Yanukovych, accused Russia of “destroying the European and global security by annexing Crimea and unleash an armed conflict” in the east.

“The brazen Russian aggression is a threat not only to Ukraine but to the entire civilized world, its security and stability,” he said. Poroshenko has learned very well from his masters in Europe and North America. His rhetoric resembles that of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, David Cameron or Tony Blair, who all “warned us” about so-called imminent threats that lurked in the dark and how the western world needed to deal with them before they caused great harm.

In turn, the Poroshenko doctrine “reaffirms the rejection of the politics of blocks and calls for the resumption of the strategic course towards a Euro-Atlantic integration”, with NATO.

In this regard, Poroshenko stressed that Ukraine must standardized its armed forces according to the rules of all NATO member countries by 2020.

The document also cites a number of necessary steps to strengthen the defensive potential and restore the territorial integrity of the country, referring to the Crimea and how it was supposedly annexed by Russia in March 2014. Poroshenko also called for new measures to deal with those “pro-Russian rebel regions” of Donetsk and Lughansk.

Moreover, Ukraine today extended sanctions against Russian natural and legal persons involved in “terrorist activities and violations of international law by undermining the territorial integrity of the country.”

Russia, which is accused by Poroshenko of deploying thousands of troops in support of the separatist militias of Donetsk and Lugansk, denies its involvement in the conflict and accused Kiev of violating the Minsk peace agreements to which it agreed last February. According to Moscow, Kiev refuses to dialogue with representatives of the eastern regions.

With respect to Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin reminded Poroshenko that the Crimean had spoken in favor of reintegration to the Russian Federation through a referendum, after having been a part of Ukraine since 1954.

“Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.” John F. Kennedy

Ever since I can remember, there has been war after war and talk of another war: Vietnam, Iran, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan. As a matter of fact, the United States has been at war almost continually since 1776. America has been in some sort of conflict 214 of the 236 years of its existence. That’s 90 percent of our history we’ve been at war!

There is the Lord’s wars and there is man’s war. People, more often than not, cannot discern the difference between good and evil, right and wrong, righteous and unrighteous, when it comes to war?

“All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.” -Noah Webster

I am humored when world leaders talk much of war and, in many cases, have never been to war. I suggest that the people, on a global scale, begin to demand that their representatives who desire war be the first to be sent to war if it is such a noble cause. This is the way the noble men did in the days of old. Furthermore, if it is a noble cause, you can rest assured that the people will rally around to deal with the evil at hand.

Treason Within!

However, wars today are sold to people with no reference to God or His Laws, or the enumerated laws found within our constitution. What wins out is the war the wicked promote through lies and deception, hoping that the people will get behind the war, which they have created (Proverbs 28:4). In fact, in many of these cases, those who promote the wars are playing the victim of an attack that they contrived to set the people at war with their political opposition (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

What’s worse is the fact they are so willing to send America’s best (America’s sons and daughters) in place of themselves to fight in a war they are unwilling to fight in themselves.

“Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die!” -President Herbert Hoover Remember, in peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons. -Herodotus

George Washington and those who laid our foundations did so through the Revolutionary War (2 Samuel 18:2). They did not promote anything that they were not willing to sacrifice to promote (John 15:13). It was said, in a eulogy by Henry Lee, that George Washington was “First in War, First in Peace, and First in the Hearts of His Countrymen.”

In fact, the summation of the Declaration of Independence, presented this union of a mutual bond against a mutual enemy and a mutual future. “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” The best way to win future wars is to prevent them.

In his diary entry, dated February 22, 1756, John Adams wrote:

“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God…What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

One thing that aggravates me with people is when they begin to blame the government for unconstitutional wars. The fact is that they are unconstitutional, but I ask you, who is the government?

America, you are the law under God!

“Bear always in mind that a nation ceases to be Republican only when the will of the majority ceases to be the law.” –Thomas Jefferson

I have to remind people that the people are the government, and they are the ones who have allowed their representatives (Congress) to send “their kids,” in many cases, to fight these unconstitutional wars.

“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” –Declaration of Independence

Americans forget so quickly as to who is behind many of these money making, contrived wars and why they go forward. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned:

The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting, if at all possible, and that comes through the rule of God’s Law, in order that you can have the desired peace.

Video Games, Predictive Programming, And The 21st Century Skinner Box


By: Rusticus | Stateless Homesteading

Perhaps the most encouraging development in fostering freedom in our modern era is the rise of effective “counter-propaganda” to the machinations of Globalism, the likes of which have (arguably) not been circulated so widely since the pamphleteers of the 16th and 17th Centuries. The digital era has brought rise to propaganda and psychological warfare’s perfect foil: The alternative media’s adoption of open source intelligence analysis.

Open source investigations abound on virtually every subject of Deep Political significance today, and as a result, propaganda can be deconstructed by anyone with an Internet connection. Didn’t know that Ben Affleck was a CIA agent whose handler is Chase Brandon? That information is available to you. Interested in the weaponization of novels, or CDC and Defense Department “assistance” given to big-budget Hollywood disaster flicks? Just point and click.

However, if one were pondering why the first-person shooter they just purchased for their Xbox was laden with pro-war propaganda while simultaneously training the player in reflexive shooting, one might have a more difficult task ahead of them; despite the vast influence of the gaming industry on 21st Century culture, virtually no investigative mettle has been assigned to the task of rooting out Deep State actors within the field.

That is, until today.

Foundations, Think Tanks, and Academia: The Usual Suspects and the Revolving Door

Collusion between video game developers and the Military Industrial Complex has come a long way since Atari’s 1980 tank combat game Battlezone was used by the US Army as a Bradley tank training simulator. It’s come an equally long way since the 1996 creation of “Marine DOOM.” The vector graphics of Yesteryear have given way to ever-increasing polygon counts, the shoot-em-ups of the 2D-gaming era dissipating in a sea of first-person shooters (or FPS games). The US Army, too, has evolved in kind; no longer are such training simulators masquerading as video games aimed merely at enlistees, but the populous at large. In this respect, the Army’s pet project, America’s Army, is the Bradley Tank Simulator’s modern analogue.

Originally published in 2002 (with over 40 iterations released since as of 2015), America’s Army is the brainchild of one Colonel Casey Wardynski. Running on the widely used Unreal Engine, the game is distributed at no cost on multiple platforms; in line with Wardynski’s original vision, the series’ intention is to “[use] computer game technology to provide the public a virtual Soldier experience that was engaging, informative and entertaining.” In other words, a “soldier simulation FPS,” more realistic than its big-budget, Hollywood-esque counterparts.

Some might even characterize it as military training software, somewhat ham-fistedly and morbidly marketed the towards the very teenagers and young men the Army intends to recruit.

Phony Claims About Syria Retaining Chemical Weapons

Since Obama began waging proxy on war in Syria in March 2011, numerous false charges about Assad using chemical weapons followed – discredited by verifiable facts on the ground.

Clear evidence of imported takfiri terrorists using banned toxic agents was systematically covered up – even after Saudi Arabia was caught red-handed supplying sarin gas and other chemical toxins to anti-Assad elements.

Barrels containing banned chemicals were found marked “Made in KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).” Protective masks were found. So were drugs used when inhaling chemicals.

On June 17, 2015, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) headlined “Disposal of effluents from neutralised Syrian chemical weapons completed,” saying:

OPCW “welcomes the completion of disposal of effluents resulting from neutralisation operations aboard the US vessel Cape Ray.”

“These operations governed the destruction at sea of almost 600 metric tonnes of sulphur mustard and methylphosphonyl difluoride (DF) from Syria’s chemical weapons programme. DF is a key precursor chemical for manufacturing nerve agent.”

“On 12 June 2015, a OPCW team verified the disposal of approximately 335.5 metric tonnes of sulphur mustard effluents at the German Government facility, Gesellschaft zur Entsorgung von Chemischen Kampfstoffen und Rüstungsaltlasten MBH (GEKA MBH). This was a significant in-kind contribution by the Federal Republic of Germany.”

“On 11 June 2015, Ekokem Riihimäki Waste Disposal Facility in Finland announced the disposal of 5,463 metric tonnes of DF effluents received from the Cape Ray.”

“This process was part of a commercial contract, which included destruction of other chemicals from Syria’s chemical weapons programme. An OPCW inspection team will shortly deploy to Finland to verify completion of this process.”

OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu called the above efforts “yet another milestone on the path to eliminating chemical weapons stocks from Syria – one that was achieved in a safe and efficient way, thanks to the valuable support provided by the German Government and Finnish industry.”

“Of the 1,328 metric tonnes of chemical weapon agent declared by the Syrian Arab Republic, only 16 metric tonnes of hydrogen fluoride remain to be destroyed at the facility of Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C. at Port Arthur in Texas in the United States. The destruction of the 12 former chemical weapons facilities is also underway.”

A feature article last Friday from Wall Street Journal headlined “Mission to Purge Syria of Chemical Weapons Comes Up Short.”

The dubious source: US intelligence agencies complicit with the administration, State Department, other Washington agencies, Congress and go-along media scoundrels in vilifying Bashar al-Assad irresponsibly – spreading Big Lies about his activities, ignoring his responsible campaign to rid Syria of imported Islamic State and other terrorist groups operating as US proxies to oust him and his government, replacing it with a pro-Western puppet regime.

The Wall Street Journal outrageously called Assad’s full cooperation with OPCW inspectors “a ruse part of a chain of misrepresentations by President Bashar al-Assad’s regime to hide the extent of its chemical-weapons work.”

“…US intelligence agencies have concluded that the regime didn’t give up all of the chemical weapons it was supposed to.”

Despite evidence otherwise, they claimed Assad “controlled where inspectors went, what they saw and, in turn, what they accomplished…according to the inspectors and officials.”

The above OPCW comments contradict these assertions. The only restrictions involved securing the safety of inspectors operating in a war zone. Their statements say nothing about restricted or impeded activities in any way. They suggest precisely the opposite – Assad’s full cooperation.

The Journal repeated the exposed Big Lie about Syria using sarin gas in Ghouta “kill(ing) some 1,400 people.” A British report suggested one-fourth this number.

Former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig John Murray, called John Kerry’s accusations about the Ghouta incident “sheer lies.” Independent evidence confirmed it.

The Journal cited US intelligence claiming (with no verifiable evidence) Assad “hid caches of even deadlier nerve agents, and that he may be prepared to use them if government strongholds are threatened by Islamist fighters.”

US intelligence claims it “tracked the regime’s increasing use of chlorine-filled bombs” earlier this year – despite no evidence proving it. Takfiri terrorists are known to have access to chlorine gas. They’ve shown willingness to use it. Incidents are wrongfully blamed on Assad.

The new US intelligence report is the latest propaganda effort to vilify Assad – perhaps prelude to greater efforts to oust him.

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


By: James Robertson | Crimes of Empire –

CyberBerkut (Google Translation):

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

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

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

LEAKED! ISIS Beheading Video Caught Filming In Studio!


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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shocking Report Plays Into Hands Of Pre-Jade Helm WW3 Propaganda!


ISIS and long list of new world order enemies to be blamed on cyber-grid attack!

Some time back I wrote about the importance of being aware of the difference between the truth movement and the liberty movement. They may act the same at times, they may sometimes sound the same, people from both groups may agree on many things but these movements are not the same. The difference? The truth movement is a group of people who may or may not gravitate to the liberty movement but they are aware that the truth is what it is regardless of ideology and it can be a very divisive and powerful tool. Those that are committed to truth and truth only realize that any political group or ideology is only as good as the amount of truth it operates on. For that reason truth seekers may find themselves at odds at any given moment with any other political or ideological group. Truth, as we all know, knows no party. The liberty movement on the other hand is a continuum of ideas that tend toward freedom and liberty not necessarily truth itself thus making it much more vulnerable to deception.

Freedom and liberty is a concept we should all gravitate to. Except of course, if you are part of the control system or the global elite who want to control everyone. The liberty movement unfortunately opens themselves up to be led astray, lied to, deceived and misled. All perhaps because some in the liberty movement deep down probably have dreams of maintaining the status quo in some way. Or perhaps those in the liberty movement are more deeply entrenched in the matrix and are more trusted by the globalist and their foot soldiers on the ground. Perhaps it’s just easier if you are the globalist, to infiltrate the liberty movement because it represents after all, a sizable and thus an influential percentage of Americans that can have an impact on the perception of stories by the masses.

Whatever the reason the liberty movement opens themselves up to deception, it is clear to me that they are being wildly misled yet again with major government propaganda enough to sound a red alert for all Americans. In a recent report put out by a “Liberty News” related video channel influential liberty writer Dave Hodges whose articles I’ve read over the years and have enjoyed, tells the audience that a secret and reliable “military source” is telling him a major cyber attack is coming to America.

That alone is not the psyop or the shocking part of the news. Hodges goes on to say that his special military related information “source” is confirming to him that this cyber-grid-power structure attack on America that could wipe out millions of people will be orchestrated by (get this!!) ISIS who happens to be conveniently parked in Mexico, China, North Korea, Russia, President Assad in Syria himself!, Hezbollah, and Hamas!! Practically all the enemies of the new world order! No mention whatsoever that ISIS is a CIA/Mossad psyop or that U.S. military’s Jade Helm 15 exercise against the American people is just days away!! No mention that this “source” could be a psyop in itself or that the military sources that are providing this information to Hodges or to his “source” could themselves be victims in this psyop.

Hodges to his credit admits he’s strictly basing the reliability of this report based on his gut feeling (not facts). Aside from this brief moment he goes on to report his suspicion that all the above players may be involved and that America could be in big trouble.

Well Hodges is very correct! America IS in big trouble and likely we will have a major cyber and infrastructure attack leaving millions of Americans in a dire situation. Likely Hodges is telling it as well intended as possible and as he sees it, which is what he has done for many years. Unfortunately deceptions when done the right way, are capable of taking even well intended people with it.

All of this information I assure readers is a psyop very likely part of the planned attack on America highlighted by the upcoming Jade Helm 15 AI attack on the human domain. No one should be surprised that the U.S. military is trying hard to keep Jade Helm treason exercises a secret from the media and journalist. No one should be surprised by the timing of this report and the panic it is trying to create.

Indeed America is under attack and we have every reason to believe it is well planned out by the globalist in cooperation with U.S. military, DHS (and their 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!), U.S. Intelligence (and their controlled mainstream media propaganda machine), and global high tech corporate giants (not Anonymous) who have invested in super A.I. software for the purposes of controlling humanity.

Anyone fooled by this type of pre-Jade Helm 15 propaganda directly intended to put the blame of a direct attack on America on Russia, China, Syria and other enemies of the new world order is simply not paying attention.

Let us not be fooled by the same puppet masters and their expensive staged theater of lies. Stay focused, stay strong and stay vigilant. They are prepared to demonize anyone who doesn’t go along with their psyop. Surely truth seekers (those in the truth movement) will soon be accused of “helping” China, Russia, even ISIS if they don’t go along with U.S. military, U.S. Intelligence psyop lies. Make no mistake, the psyop and ushering in of the new world order in conjunction with Jade Helm 15 AI psyop has begun.

The time is now to reach out to those in the liberty movement and let them know they are being duped just like the control system has duped the Democrats and Republicans for decades. The psyop is now focused on the liberty movement. Believe it. Just put yourself in the shoes of the globalist terrorists and ask yourself which group would you focus on to cognitively infiltrate the resistance? This is a battle of information and many of us have known for long that the goal of the globalist as stated by Zbigniew Zibrinski was to cognitively infiltrate the truth movement to create “cognitive diversity”. It’s old fashion divide and conquer!

This may very well be as strong a test for truth seekers as there is since many of us enjoy reading articles and watching videos from liberty lovers. Over the years they become part of our circle so we tend to believe what they say. Now however is the time to stand for truth and call confusion, misunderstanding and misinformation exactly what it is. Now is not the time to go along with what someone says just for the sake of friendship or familiarity. Question everything.

Let’s continue to reach out to our liberty loving friends and do everything we can to keep them on their toes about what is really happening. Remind them that now is the time to be doubtful and suspicious of so called “inside information”. The U.S. military is a fountain of lies and deceit right now and now is not the time to believe anything they put out regardless of who is saying it. Remind your liberty friends taking advice from secret military sources that military only knows whatever someone above them WANTS them to know. Remind your liberty friends that military knowledge is absolutely controlled by compartmentalization of knowledge and this is how they are easily able to make soldiers THINK they know what is happening all the while they have no clue of the true nature of a mission.

Let us remain highly vigilant in these troubling days to the deception of the controllers. Resist their lies and let this resistance become the norm. If we can resist their deception and propaganda now we will be assured to see better days ahead. Don’t lose sight of the bigger picture on account of someone who says they have the inside scoop on something. Let truth be your guide, follow your intuition and you will make it to the other side unscathed. Arm your mind with a strong sense of truth and reality and watch as the lies, propaganda and deceit bounces off of you. You will then see that knowing and understanding what is really happening is a wonderful and liberating thing.

ISIS: US Proxy Foot Soldiers


Washington recruits, arms, trains, funds and directs ISIS terrorists the same way they used Mujahideen fighters in the 1980s against Soviet Russia in Afghanistan as well as Al Qaeda and likeminded takfiri groups today.

They’re US proxy foot soldiers against independent governments Washington wants replaced with pro-Western ones, or in the case of Iraq, weakened and balkanized like Yugoslavia for easier control.

Iraqis don’t believe America wants ISIS defeated. On June 25, the Wall Street Journal reported Anbar province Sunni Iraqi “unanim(ity) about whom to blame for their misery.”

Shiite lawmaker Alia Nusseif said “(w)e don’t have any trust in Americans anymore…ISIS is being used as a tool by America to divide and weaken Iraq.”

Former policeman Wassen Khaled said he “hold(s) Americans responsible for destroying Anbar.”

“We all know that America is providing ISIS with weapons and food, and that it is because of American backing that they have become so strong,” an Iraqi free from Ramadi added.

The Journal, of course, downplayed what it called “conspiracy theories” while admitting this view “represent(s) political reality with real-world consequences” – notably ISIS advances despite months of US bombing Iraqi infrastructure, not their fighters.

US officials lie about waging war on their elements. General Thomas Weidley is chief of staff of Washington’s so-called task force against the Islamic State. Claiming America’s “mission is to defeat Daesh (ISIS)” and bombing has had a “devastating” effect is polar opposite truth.

Washington created the Islamic State. A previous article explained Judicial Watch obtained a declassified 2012 Pentagon intelligence report anticipating ISIS (the Islamic State – IS) emerging from US support for Al Qaeda and other takfiri terrorists.

It predicted what happened, saying “(i)f the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria…and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

It anticipated “dire consequences” for Iraq – including the fall of Mosul and Ramadi, saying:

An “ideal atmosphere” was created “for AQI (Al Qaeda in Iraq) to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi.”

“ISI (Islamic State of Iraq) could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.”

Supporting powers include Washington, Turkey, other rogue NATO partners, Gulf states and Israel. They created and supported takfiri terrorist groups to destabilize Syria, establish a Salafist Principality, isolate the Assad government and topple it.

Pentagon intelligence confirmed US support for ISIS and takfiri terrorists – not opposition as officially reported.

Bassel Idriss, commander of a so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigade, admitted working jointly with takfiri terrorist groups, including ISIS – providing US-supplied weapons besides what Washington supplies them directly by airdrops and through Saudi channels.

London-based Conflict Armament Research reported “significant quantities” of US weapons used by takfiri terrorists marked “property of the US government.”

America’s phony war on ISIS uses its forces for its own imperial interests. On Sunday, Fars News listed 10 ways ISIS accumulates huge amounts of money.

1. Selling oil using Turkish firms for $1 million daily.

2. Selling ancient Syrian monuments through Turkish middlemen for billions of dollars.

3. Selling body organs.

4. Collecting ransoms for released hostages.

5. Trafficking non-Muslim women.

6. Selling antique Syrian and Iraqi manuscripts and artifacts.

7. Selling intelligence gained on their battlefields to Ankara spy agencies.

8. Turkish financial and logistical aid during the Kobani occupation.

9. Help from Turkish charities.

10. Over $1 billion annually trafficking heroin, according to Russia’s Drug Control Service head Viktor Ivanov.

Plus enormous amounts of US aid, much channeled through Riyadh. Middle East wars rage endlessly. Stoking conflict and instability serve US interests. Expect no resolution any time soon.

Washington’s Phony War On ISIS


The Big Lie explains everything about US policies on issues mattering most – especially geopolitical ones.

The New York Times operates as a virtual US government house organ. Many of its reports are little more than administration and Pentagon press releases.

On June 9, it headlined “US Embracing a New Approach on Battling ISIS in Iraq.” The so-called new approach is the beefed up old one – providing more support for Islamic State fighters in Iraq, Syria and wherever else Washington deploys them.

They’re in Libya. Small numbers are in Gaza perhaps ahead of more to come.

Death squad diplomacy is longstanding US policy. Vietnam’s Operation Phoenix became a prototype for today’s wars. Tactics included intimidation, kidnappings, torture, and mass murder.

Strategy involved eliminating opposition elements and terrorizing people into submission. US recruited Contra death squads operated the same way against the 1980s Sandinista government.

According to Times propaganda, Obama plans “a major shift of focus in the battle against the Islamic State…”

A new Anbar Province military base will be built adding to the bloated number Washington already has in the region.

Around 400 so-called “trainers” (US special forces death squads) will be deployed to join the battle for Ramadi – for sure not to combat IS fighters Washington recruits, arms, funds, trains, directs, and uses as proxy US foot soldiers.

What’s planned for Ramadi and elsewhere in Iraq remains to be seen. US bombing Iraqi and Syrian targets have nothing to do with eliminating ISIS.

Strategy involves destroying vital economic infrastructure of both countries, as well as helping IS fighters gain more territorial control and keep it.

US satellite imagery and other intelligence knows exactly where they’re located. Yet US bombings don’t target them.

The New York Times and other major US media ignore what demands headlines. They perpetuate the myth of America’s war on IS instead of explaining one against Syria to oust Bashar al-Assad and on Iraq to balkanize it into the Kurdish north, Baghdad center and Basra south with IS fighters controlling large swarths of territory.

Part of America’s strategy is endless regional conflicts and destabilization as pretext for maintaining US military forces throughout the Middle East.

Its vast oil reserves are a treasure Washington intends to control – no matter how much mass slaughter and destruction it takes – or brutal exploitation of millions of people.

Washington currently has around 3,000 US combat troops in Iraq. Up to 1,000 more are planned – maybe more to come.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Steven Warren ludicrously said “(b)ecause the (Iraqi) forces we’ve trained are performing better than expected, we feel it’s in everyone’s interest to train more.”

Their so-called effectiveness let IS fighters make increasing territorial gains. At a Germany G-7 summit news conference, Obama indicated no “complete strategy” for dealing with IS despite many months of direct US involvement in Iraq’s ongoing conflict.

Excuses given didn’t wash. Strategy involves supporting IS, not combatting it – what media scoundrels won’t explain.

US claims about wanting to degrade and defeat IS are polar opposite truth. If Washington opposed Islamic terrorists, they never would have been created in the first place – and supported all along.

It bears repeating. IS and likeminded Islamic terrorists are US foot soldiers used to further America’s imperial agenda – endless wars and elimination of all independent governments to achieve unchallenged global dominance.

Obama-Netanyahu ”Fallout” Is Theater – Planned In 2009

obama netanyahu 2
By: Tony Cartalucci | Land Destroyer Report –

In a 2009 US policy paper published by the corporate-financier funded Brookings Institution, it was made clear that the US was determined to provoke Iran into a conflict and effect regime change at any cost – up to and including an outright military invasion and occupation of Iran with US troops.

However, before it came to that, the Brookings Institution’s policymakers explored other options including fomenting US-backed political unrest coupled with covert, violent force, the use of US State Department listed foreign terrorist organizations to carry out assassinations and attacks within Iran, and limited airstrikes carried out by either the US or Israel, or both.

In retrospect, 6 years on, all of these tricks have not only been attempted to one degree or another in Iran, but have been demonstrably employed in neighboring Syria to diminish its strength – which according to Brookings – is a necessary prerequisite before waging war on Iran.

And of particular interest – considering what appears to be a growing diplomatic row between the United States and Israel – is just how precisely the US planned to covertly back what would be made to appear as a “unilateral” Israeli first strike on Iran – an attack that appears to be in the process of being justified through a carefully orchestrated propaganda campaign now unfolding.

From the Mouths of US Policymakers Themselves 

The Brookings Institution’s 2009 policy paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” makes clear that negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program is merely theater, and that it will be used to give the world the impression that the United States explored all possible “peaceful” options before resorting to violent regime change.  The report states specifically that:

…any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context— both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.

Of course, Iran – as admitted to by Brookings themselves – is not governed by irrational leadership, and would not turn down a genuinely “superb offer.” The Brookings Institution admits openly that the US pursues a dual track foreign policy – one for public consumption (making “superb offers”) and another aimed at ensuring Iran looks as unreasonable as possible.

At one point in the policy paper, Brookings would state:

The truth is that these all would be challenging cases to make. For that reason, it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)

Brookings Which Path to Persia 2010 Cover
Here, Brookings policymakers openly conspire to undermine global peace by “goading” another nation into a war it neither wants nor will benefit from. Provoking a nation that poses no threat to the national security of the United States is a clear violation of international law – with the Brookings paper serving as a literal signed confession.

Yet despite this open admission, conspiring against world peace, what is of more interest is the United States’ plans to disavow any responsibility for an attack it would use its regional proxy, Israel, to carry out in its place. It states specifically under a chapter titled, “Allowing or Encouraging an Israeli Military Strike,” that:

…the most salient advantage this option has over that of an American air campaign is the possibility that Israel alone would be blamed for the attack. If this proves true, then the United States might not have to deal with Iranian retaliation or the diplomatic backlash that would accompany an American military operation against Iran. It could allow Washington to have its cake (delay Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapon) and eat it, too (avoid undermining many other U.S. regional diplomatic initiatives).

To no one’s surprise the British Daily Mail now reports in an article titled, “President Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they attacked Iranian nuclear facilities last year, claim sources,” that:

President Obama is alleged to have stopped an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets, according to reports to emerge from the Middle East at the weekend

The threat from the U.S. forced Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to abort a planned attack on Iraq, reported Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida.

Netanyahu will be in Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama’s cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Tehran.

Here, the Daily Mail repeats a growing narrative that dovetails neatly into long-standing US foreign policy described by the Brookings Institution’s report in 2009 – down to the letter. In fact, the prospect of “shooting down” Israeli planes was discussed as one of many props used in this geopolitical theater.

The US, as prescribed by Brookings, is portrayed as desperately trying to hammer out an almost unreasonably accommodation with Iran, while “mad dog” Israel seeks to unilaterally attack Iran – thus giving the US the plausible deniability it openly claimed it would disingenuously attempt to create ahead of any Israeli attack on Iran. It should be noted that the summation of Israel’s military might is a result long, extensive, and continuous US military support meaning that Israeli military operation is even possible without it.

obama netanyahu
Also of interest is Israel’s habitual, belligerent, serial acts of inhumanity against both its own people and the Palestinians whose land Tel Aviv has seized and continues to occupy. The nature of these acts is not one of self-preservation, but of intentional provocation – creating predictable political divides across the West easily manipulated particularly at times like these where a “regrettable” attack made upon Iran, a nation the West has thus far failed to topple with terrorism, US-backed sedition, sanctions, and covert provocations, is now in the cards.

It is also clear that the 2009 “Which Path to Persia?” policy paper still represents a vivid window into a much deeper and well-entrenched doctrine still to this day being used to reorder the Middle East into alignment with Western special interests.  It is a signed confession of a now evident conspiracy against global peace and stability. It should be read, in full, before the United Nations Security Council  before those who wrote it and the corporate-financier interests who sponsored it are brought to international justice.

Anything less proves that the United States and its regional proxies, not Iran, are the rogue states, working against global peace and stability, with many standing examples already of their atrocities on display, and more – apparently – still to come.

Why Is Israel Attacking Syria Not ISIS Terrorists??


Can anyone in the world make sense of what we are seeing? A group of nations working together carrying out the most unusual policies mixed with lies. Enough to drive any normal reasonable person insane trying to figure out the logic. What logic? I’m talking about trying to make sense of the western mainstream media logic (of ISIS terrorism and Muslim fundamental terrorism being so dangerous to Israel and the U.S.) in conjunction with what we actually see happening. Things like Israel and CIA (and Turkey) working with Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, and ISIS- arming, funding and training them. Things like Israel attacking only the enemies of ISIS and Al Qaeda. Things like Israel attacking the sovereign nation of Syria instead of ISIS itself declared by the U.S. government and mainstream media as so dangerous that congress voted for funding war against them.

Whatever happened to ISIS being so dangerous? Wasn’t ISIS supposed to be the greatest threat to the Middle East and the world because they supposedly have members joining from all over the world? Wasn’t ISIS the most sophisticated terror group that needed to be stopped at all cost because they were beheading Christians and took over Mosul overpowering 30,000 troops in one day? Despite all the mainstream media portrayal of ISIS as the dangerous Christian-beheading haters, and haters of U.S./Israeli (recall the James Foley beheading video) and all western culture, despite all of this, the relationship between Israel and ISIS is mysteriously peaceful and flawless. In fact when Israeli media reported the supposed arresting of an ISIS terrorist not long ago, even the supposed ISIS terrorist was given a soft sentence of 22 months in jail. Isn’t this a bit odd for a terrorist member of a group that beheads Christians and is supposed to be the most dangerous and sophisticated terror group in the world?? Or is terrorism not that serious a charge in Israel?

This is not the first time that supposed dangerous terrorists spent time in Israeli jail before being set free to rejoin supposed terror groups who are dangerous threats to Israel.  Al-Arouri is the supposed Hamas confession guy who after Israeli police concluded that the 3 murdered Israeli teens, who’s murder was used as the sole justification to launching military attacks against the people of Gaza, were not murdered by members of Hamas-Al-Arouri would later present himself as a leader of Hamas and issue a “confession” that indeed Hamas was behind the murder of the teens. This “confession” of course, would be disputed by other members of Hamas and would contradict the factual findings by their very own Israeli police. Conveniently, Mr Al-Arouri’s testimony would benefit Israel greatly by giving Israel a pretext for rationalizing their war crimes against the people of Gaza. Should it surprise us that this same supposedly dangerous Hamas “terrorist” spent time in Israel prison years prior for the crime of “terrorism” while being eventually let out of prison to carry on with his life? His life apparently includes returning to Hamas to be a dangerous terrorist and, while he’s at it, aiding Israel in the process?

What’s going on here is obvious to anyone paying attention. These are fake pick-your-boogie-monster games where only a specific terror group is useful for political reasons. It’s important that ISIS is a threat only to the U.S. somehow while somehow not posing a threat to Israel. In this new world order long term Middle East script it is important that the democratically elected government of Hamas is portrayed as a threat to Israel ONLY, and no one else, while ISIS is only a threat to the U.S. despite that fact that it’s all the way on the other side of the world. Sounds crazy? In fact in one article from Gatestone Institute, writer Alan Dershowitz actually says it- “ISIS is to America as Hamas is to Israel”. This is the perfect propaganda script for the U.S.-Israeli empire to implement their Middle East plans. A plan where super dangerous terror groups (or sovereign nations accused of being dangerous terrorists) only attack the specific countries required for them to fit into the Middle East and PNAC plans and no one else. How convenient huh?

So while another week comes and goes and ISIS still exists. While the mainstream media ISIS stories have died down giving early ISIS Al Qaeda-like staying power. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, the ISIS psyop is in its final phase which involves simply the prolongation of ISIS. To review this important point, the western mainstream media and the Pentagon have to keep ISIS around to be used as a tool to accomplish their plans and the strategy to prolong the (perceived) existence of ISIS consists of 3 steps (IMO):

1. Periods of silence (like we’re seeing now) involving less talk about ISIS to get everyone’s mind off of ISIS for a while. These periods of non-ISIS talk will buy ISIS more time to exist and slowly these periods will get longer. This will condition ISIS into the minds of the blind sheep who by now have fully integrated ISIS into their subconscious. The average sheeple right now couldn’t imagine a world without ISIS even if they tried. That’s how deep mass hypnosis works BTW.

2. Another tactic to be used to prolong the existence of ISIS is making them seem like they are always growing and recruiting. Notice how often media focuses on ISIS ‘recruiting’ stories? It’s not enough that ISIS can take on multiple countries in battle on multiple global fronts while sustaining themselves militarily and with crucial daily supplies, but they also have time to take off from their incredible video production and internet social media skills to launch a worldwide recruiting campaign. All of this while they fight in multiple global fronts … while winning!

3. Thirdly ISIS will be prolonged by the convenience of not being taken out by any of the militarily powerful nations who can take them down including U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others who could easily eliminate ISIS in a day or two, especially if they worked together. This shocking non-willingness to attack and eliminate ISIS (which might be the greatest story) is what we are seeing from not just the U.S. but now blatantly from Israel.

Israel, like they did with Gaza, is caught blatantly choosing to attack a sovereign nation (of Syria) instead of focusing their energy to attack global terrorism. Once again critical thinkers, activists, and independent minded individuals are left baffled at the contradictions of narratives coming out of western (Zionist controlled) mainstream media, and the actions of Israel and the U.S..

Will there ever come a day when we all say enough? A day when enough of us say enough? Will Israel continue to get away with war crimes forever? Will anyone ever confront the political leaders of Israel and try them for war crimes? Benjamin Netanyahu is a proven and known political war criminal so why isn’t anyone doing anything about it? Will modern day America ever come to grips with these war crimes perpetrated on Sovereign nations and clear violations of the Geneva Conventions? Will this western Zionist controlled mainstream media control the narrative forever? Must we live in hypnosis forever or will we ever mount the courage to see things as they are? Is the Orwellian spell forever or is there a mathematical chance of humanity waking up? How can we characterize all of this?

All of this is explained by propaganda. A simple research on the meaning of propaganda will help solve and answer all of these questions. It’s time for the world to wake up and see that Israel (like their U.S. partners) works with Al Qaeda and ISIS not against them. They would rather arm themselves and put the lives of their soldiers at risk to fight a sovereign nation like Syria who is in the way of their long term Middle East plans. As for ISIS and Al Qaeda and other terror groups, Israel has played a major role in the creation, operation and/or support of these organizations from day one. It’s time for Americans to see the U.S.-Israeli relationship for what it is. This goes back to before 9/11 and even before the PNAC plans.

The Israel factor can no longer be ignored. It’s staring us all in the face and this latest and most recent attack on Syrian air bases and “targets” is just a continuation of the Middle East takeover which is a precursor to the global takeover, the new world order global takeover. We cannot continue to ignore these huge landmark historic points in the advancement of the new world order AND expect to stop the new world order from coming to fruition.

Bernie Suarez is an activist, critical thinker, radio host, musician, M.D, Veteran, lover of freedom and the Constitution, and creator of the Truth and Art TV project. He also has a background in psychology and highly recommends that everyone watch a documentary titled The Century of the Self. Bernie has concluded that the way to defeat the New World Order is to truly be the change that you want to see. Manifesting the solution and putting truth into action is the very thing that will defeat the globalists.

The Beheading That Never Was? – The Kassig Killing And Western War Propaganda

By: Brandon Turbeville | Activist Post –

Currently trending alongside Kim Kardashian’s photo shoot, a Missouri declaration of a State of Emergency, and Charles Manson’s marriage, is the news of the recent alleged beheading of an American citizen by Western-backed ISIS terrorists in Syria.

The latest beheading video to allegedly emerge from ISIS reportedly shows the beheading of Peter Kassig, an “American aid worker” who was captured by the Western-backed fundamentalists in October of last year. Kassig was an Iraq veteran and former U.S. Army Ranger who later became an “aid worker” in Lebanon and Syria, according to USA Today.

Kassig’s family states that, while overseas, Kassig converted to Islam and changed his name to Abdul Rahman.

The video, which was released Sunday, is over 15 minutes long and contains a rather long propaganda buildup before showing the beheading of 12-18 Syrian soldiers.

The beheading of the Syrian soldiers, it should be noted, has received virtually no reporting except for an occasional line or two describing the lead up to Kassig’s beheading.

Kassig’s beheading is not actually shown, however. Toward the end of the video, “Jihadi John,” the ISIS member who has acted as the star of the series of beheading videos is pictured standing next to a severed human head which he claims belonged to Kassig.

If Kassig was indeed beheaded then his murder is without a doubt a tragedy and an act of savage brutality. But there is one thing lacking in the narrative provided by Western governments and their media mouthpieces regarding the beheading – evidence.

Unlike the staged Foley beheading which attempted to depict, albeit poorly, the first few moments of a decapitation, the Kassig beheading video is not a beheading video at all, but simply footage of a man standing next to a severed head that he claims belonged to Peter Kassig.

With the exception of Jihadi John’s word, we are left with nothing with which to confirm that the severed head was actually Kassig’s. Considering the track record of Western governments and the recent trail of beheading videos, however, we would be well within reason to question the veracity of the claims.

At this point, it is impossible for us to know whether or not the head shown in the video truly belonged to Kassig or even if Kassig was actually beheaded. Likewise, we cannot know for sure whether or not the victims preceding Kassig were truly beheaded, although we can say for sure that the depiction of the beheading shown on film was entirely staged.

What we do know, however, is that Kassig and his predecessors are being used for open propaganda purposes. In fact, all of the beheadings that have transpired beginning with the Foley video have been so conveniently timed to the needs and desires of the NATO agenda so as to preclude any reasonable suggestion that the videos themselves were anything other than propaganda.

Remember, when the United States was “debating” the idea of becoming more directly involved in Syria and Iraq, particularly in the form of bombing civilian and government infrastructure and openly funding the death squads they claim to be fighting, a video allegedly showing the beheading of James Foley was released resulting in widespread anger and indignation amongst a general public who were temporarily yanked away from reality TV long enough to view it.
Likewise, when the British seemed hesitant to directly join the imperialist bombing coalition, a video was released allegedly showing the beheading of a British citizen, Alan Henning, also causing widespread indignation amongst the public and shoring up support for British military involvement in Iraq and Syria.

When the French seemed hesitant to join the bombing, ISIS releases a third video of an alleged beheading of a Frenchman, which provided justification for French involvement.

Such convenient timing was also present when NATO was considering “targeted airstrikes” in Syria but were concerned about Assad’s sophisticated air defense systems. Shortly thereafter, ISIS managed to capture Taqba air base in Raqqa, Syria, eliminating the air defense systems in the entirety of the eastern part of the country.

This timing was present yet again when NATO once again began calling for a “No-Fly Zone,” “Buffer Zone,” or “Safe Zone.” Interestingly enough, during the debate over the possibility of the establishment of a “no-fly zone,” even members of Congress were beginning to question why a “no-fly zone” would be necessary in order to combat ISIS since ISIS had no air force. Conveniently, ISIS immediately seized a number of planes left over in the Syrian air fields and allegedly began flying them off the runway.

Either ISIS has the absolute dumbest public relations personnel in world history, or the actions of ISIS are directly controlled by NATO for propaganda, geopolitical, and military purposes. The timing of ISIS’ actions – always in line with the goals of the NATO faction of the world oligarchy – is clearly the result of the latter.

In addition, it is also important to point out that Kassig’s “humanitarian aid work” involves his founding of Special Emergency Response and Resistance, an NGO that is allegedly focused on “delivering aid” to areas that “larger organizations could not operate in.” Remember that NGOs have not only been responsible for a significant portion of the organization of death squads but also for the provision of medical help and other logistical assistance need to organize and facilitate the destabilization campaign.

That being said, one must mention that the SERR has received a large portion of funding from the NGO Conscience International, an international “aid” organization that receives its own funding from the National Endowment for Democracy.

It is also important to point out that Kassig himself has expressed sentiment that some would consider sympathetic to death squad fighters in Syria. In an interview with Syria Deeply, Kassig stated

Sometimes rebels want to know if I will help train people or if I will join the fight. I always tell them no. It is of course not that I do not feel terrible for the civilians that are suffering in Syria, but… for an American young man in my position that would be foolish, and regarded as such by pretty much everyone, including the opposition.

I can either be in a position to deliver tens of thousands of dollars of antibiotics for women and children, or I can be another young man with a gun.

Noting that he feels “terrible for the civilians that are suffering in Syria” and that his choices are essentially providing medicine or picking up a gun and joining the rebels, Kassig’s political leanings are relatively clear in that they express obvious sympathy for the death squads painted as “rebels” by the Western media.

Thus, one must ask the question of whether or not Kassig was yet another agent of Western destabilization working under the guise of an NGO and “aid organization.” From what little information is available, it appears that this possibility has fairly high odds of being true.

In the end, this video, which has been used to browbeat the American people and drum up support for yet another foreign military adventure, is set to be used to justify Western military invasion against Syria in the near future. Real or otherwise, it is hoped that the American people do not allow primitive propaganda to fool them into rushing to war on yet another occasion.

Reinventing Vietnam War History

vietnam war

Pentagon commanders initiated it. A duplicitous 2015 50th anniversary commemoration. Honoring one of history’s greatest crimes.

Turning truth on its head. Orwell explained saying “(h)e who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”

Pentagon web site headlines “The United State of America Vietnam War Commemoration.” Pentagon commanders glorify what demands condemnation.

Providing “the American public with (so-called) historically accurate materials and interactive experiences that will help Americans better understand and appreciate the service of our Vietnam War veterans and the history of US involvement in the Vietnam War.”

A Commemorative Partners Program “is designed for federal, state and local communities, veterans’ organizations and other nongovernmental organizations to assist a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families.”

Thanking them for mass murder. Involvement in genocidal high crimes against peace. Making the world safe for monied interests. More on this below.

In 1971, David Ellsberg released the Pentagon Papers. Officially titled “United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945 – 1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense.”

Former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara commissioned it. Convinced America’s war was unwinnable.

Wanting an “encyclopedic history of the Vietnam War.” Preparing it was important for future scholars, he believed.

In 1969, it was completed. Examining Indochina policy from 1940 – 1968. Forty-seven volumes. Around 7,000 pages. Classified “Top Secret.”

Ellsberg believed winning was unlikely. Waging it was bad policy. Lawless. Immoral. Costing thousands of American lives. Millions of Southeast Asian ones. More on this below.

Convinced releasing the Pentagon Papers would make a difference, Ellsbergs did so at personal risk.

Explaining what everyone deserves to know. What Washington systematically suppressed. About secretly expanding Southeast Asia’s war. Lying publicly. Deceiving Congress.

Initially charged with conspiracy, espionage and theft of government property, charges against Ellsberg were later dropped. After information surfaced about White House Plumbers using lawless tactics to discredit him.

On May 11, 1973, an Oval Office recording caught Nixon saying:

“(T)he sonofabitching thief is made a national hero and is going to get off on a mistrial, and the New York Times gets a Pulitzer Prize for stealing documents…What in the name of God have we come to?”

In 1996, The Times said:

The Pentagon Papers “demonstrated, among other things, that the Johnson Administration had systematically lied, not only to the public, but also to Congress, about a subject of transcendent national interest and significance.”

The same Times later featuring Judith Miller’s Big Lies. About nonexistent Iraq WMDs.

Publicizing them in regular Pentagon press release handouts. Substituting for credible journalism.

Daily front page propaganda rubbish. A Noah’s Ark of scam artists promoting war.

Capped by a Pulitzer Prize. Responsible journalists want it rescinded. With full defrocking.

Times editors don’t apologize. They’re in lockstep with all US wars. Ongoing or planned. Legal or illegal. WW II was Washington’s last legitimate one.

Current ones rage with no end. More are planned. Permanent war is official US policy.

Obama has lots of death and destruction in mind. Media scoundrels support his worst crimes.

Ravaging, destroying and plundering one country after another. Millions of corpses attest to America’s barbarity.

No nation in world history did more harm to more people over a longer duration. None matched its savagery. Homicidal viciousness.

Ongoing without end. Risking the unthinkable. Possible global war. Mushroom cloud denouement. Armageddon.

Terror bombing is longstanding US practice. Targeting civilians and combatants alike.

Geneva and other international laws prohibit attacking non-combatants. Article 25 of the Laws of War: Laws and Customs of War on Land (1907 Hague IV Convention) states:

“The attack or bombardment, by whatever means, of towns, villages, dwellings, or buildings which are undefended is prohibited.”

Article 26 states “(t)he officer in command of an attacking force must, before commencing a bombardment, except in cases of assault, do all in his power to warn the authorities.”

Article 27 says “(i)n sieges and bombardments, all necessary steps must be taken to spare, as far as possible, buildings dedicated to religion, art, science, or charitable purposes, historic monuments, hospitals, and places where the sick and wounded are collected, provided they are not being used at the time for military purposes.”

The besieged should visibly indicate these buildings or places and notify an adversary beforehand.

Fourth Geneva protects civilians in time of war. Prohibiting violence in any form against them. Requiring treatment for sick and wounded.

In September 1938, a League of Nations unanimous resolution prohibited “bombard(ing) cities, towns, villages, dwellings or buildings not in the immediate neighborhood of the operations of land forces…”

“In cases where (legitimate targets) are so situated, (aircraft) must abstain from bombardment” if doing so indiscriminately harms civilians.

The 1945 Nuremberg Principles prohibit “crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

Including “inhumane acts committed against any civilian populations, before or during the war.”

Indiscriminate killing. “(W)anton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.”

The 1968 General Assembly Resolution on Human Rights prohibits attacks against civilian populations. America and Israel do it repeatedly. By land, sea and air.

Gabriel Kolko wrote the definitive Vietnam War history. His “Anatomy of a War: Vietnam, the United States, and the Modern Historical Experience” explains what everyone needs to know.

Imperial America’s objectives, strengths, weaknesses, quest for world dominance and miscalculations.

Washington installed the authoritarian Ngo Dinh Diem regime. It did so to build military strength, crush opposition, and gain a reliable ally.

In the 1950s, military advisors arrived. Escalation followed. Lyndon Johnson wanted war on Vietnam. He got it.

The August 1964 false flag Gulf of Tonkin incident initiated full-scale conflict. It raged after Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.

Authorizing war without declaring it. It’s longstanding US tradition. Big lies launch them.

Manufactured pretexts initiate them. Mass killing and destruction follow. It bears repeating. Vietnam remains one of history’s greatest crimes.

In February 1965, Operation Thunder began. War without mercy. Raging through October 1968. For 44 months.

Targeting and indiscriminate bombings. Using over one million tons of ordnance. At issue was destroying Vietnam’s economy. Its will to resist.

Curtailing help reaching southern-based National Liberation Front (Viet Cong) fighters.

Over the course of war from 1965 – 1973, eight million tons of bombs were dropped.

Threefold WW II’s tonnage. Around 300 tons for every Vietnamese man, woman, child, infant, the elderly and infirm.

Napalm was used. Other incendiary devices. Terror weapons. Anti-personnel cluster bombs.

Spewing thousands of metal pellets. Hitting everything in their path. Indiscriminate land mines claiming victims to this day.

War targeted Cambodia and Laos. From March 1969 through May 1970. Nixon ordered secret bombings. Without consulting Congress.

Allegedly to destroy North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sanctuaries. Around 3,500 sorties were flown.

About 600,000 deaths followed. Mostly civilians. Helping Khmer Rouge elements gain power in 1975.

Cambodia was bombed with over 500,000 tons of ordnance. Until August 1973.

Over 25,000 US ground forces invaded. Dozens of towns, villages and hamlets were destroyed. Many thousands more were killed. Mostly peasants.

In harm’s way. In the line of fire. In the wrong country at the wrong time.

A 1962 Geneva Accord recognized Laos as a neutral state. Banning foreign military personnel from its territory.

Reality was much different. From 1965 – 1973, America flew around 580,000 sorties. Dropping over two million tons of ordinance.

The equivalent of a planeload of bombs every eight minutes. Round-the-clock for nine years.

At issue was destroying North Vietnamese so-called Ho Chi Minh Trail supply lines. Targeting the Pathet Lao government. North Vietnam’s army controlling eastern provinces.

Secret bombings again were used. So were terror weapons. Including napalm, white phosphorous and cluster bombs.

Millions of unexploded bomblets remained. Buried in fields, roads, forests, villages and rivers.

Around one-third of Laos’s 6.5 million people were killed, injured or displaced. Southeast Asia’s wars were devastating.

Killing three to four million. Causing mass destruction. Incalculable human suffering to this day.

On August 10, 1961, America began spraying Agent Orange in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Operation Ranch Hand waged herbicidal warfare for 10 years.

Around 20,000 sorties were flown. Other spraying was done from boats, trucks, or soldiers mounted with backpacks.

Over five million acres were contaminated. About 20% of South Vietnam was sprayed at least once.

Millions of gallons of dioxin-containing defoliant were used across vast areas. Concentrations were 50 times greater than for other defoliation purposes. Horrific consequences followed.

Dioxin is one of nature’s most deadly substances. It’s both natural and man-made. It’s a potent carcinogenic human immune system suppressant. Minute amounts cause serious health problems and death.

Agent Orange kills! It accumulates in adipose tissue and the liver. It alters living cell genetic structures.

Exposure results in congenital disorders and birth defects. It causes cancer, type two diabetes, and numerous other diseases.

In 2009, the US Institute of Medicine reported evidence linking Agent Orange to soft-tissue sarcoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (including hairy-cell leukemia), Hodgkin’s disease, and chloracne.

It’s associated with prostate cancer, multiple myeloma, amyloidosis (abnormal protein deposits), Parkinson’s disease, porphyria cutanea tarda (a blood and skin disorder), ischemic heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, cancer of the larynx, lung, bronchea and trachea, as well as spina bifida in offspring of exposed parents.

Vietnam’s Red Cross links it to liver cancer; lipid metabolism disorder; reproductive abnormalities; development disabilities; paralysis; and congenital deformities like cleft lip, cleft palate, club foot, hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, fused digits, and muscle malformations.

Dioxin remains toxic for decades. It’s not water soluble. Nor easily degradable. It contaminates soil, foliage, air and water.

It can be inhaled, absorbed through skin, or gain bodily entry through eyes, ears, or other cavity passages. It enters the food chain. Crops, plants, animals, and sea life are poisoned.

Its effects killed millions of Southeast Asians. Many others were disabled and/or suffer from chronic illnesses. Future generations are affected like earlier ones.

Around three million US servicemen and women were harmed. So were many American civilians. Many died. Living victims suffer from diseases, birth defects, and other ill effects.

Agent Orange use was always controversial. Studies confirmed its enormous harm. Ecocide and genocide best describe it. Human studies provided damning evidence.

In the early 1970s, Vietnam veterans reported skin rashes, cancer, psychological symptoms, birth defects, and other health problems.
Victims perish to this day.

Depleted uranium (DU) contamination began in the 1970s. US forces used DU freely since America’s Gulf war. Including dirty bombs, shells, missiles, and other munitions.

DU and other toxic weapons are illegal under international law. The 1925 Geneva Protocol and subsequent Geneva Weapons Conventions prohibit use of chemical and biological agents in any form.

The 1925 Geneva Convention Gas Protocol prohibits poison gas. The 1907 Hague Convention bans use of any “poison or poisoned weapons.”

Dioxin kills. DU is radioactive and chemically toxic. The US code, Title 50, Chapter 40, Section 2302 prohibits use of “weapons of mass destruction,” saying:

“The term ‘weapon of mass destruction’ means any weapon or device that is intended, or has the capability, to cause death or serious bodily injury to a significant number of people through the release, dissemination, or impact of (A) toxic or poisonous chemicals or their precursors, (B) a disease organism, or (C) radiation or radioactivity.”

America’s use is lawless. Doing so constitutes war crimes. Millions of combatants and civilians were irreparably harmed or killed. In current US direct and proxy wars, others are affected daily.

Washington wants its toxic legacy buried. Its high crimes against peace forgotten.

Whitewashed from history. Reinvented to make America’s ugly past look respectable.

Survivors won’t ever forget. Nor should they. Including Vietnamese sufferers. Permanently disabled US war veterans. Many on both sides enduring chronic illnesses.

They want truth and full disclosure maintained. Nothing erased from history. Or reinvented to ignore what happened.

One of history’s greatest crimes. Nameless, faceless victims suffering to this day out of sight and mind understand best.
