– “We tracked this PowerPoint down to an AIPAC front group tied to the ADL and Southern Poverty Law Center to help us understand the insanity we are dealing with.”
Facts are easily discarded when they get in the way of an appealing narrative.
It is now beyond a shadow of a doubt that the media narrative behind the shooting of Michael Brown is completely false. Brown was no gentle giant, honor student; he did not get attacked out of the blue; he was not surrendering; and he did not die without good reason. But the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, continue unabated and the demands for the indictment of Officer Darren Wilson rise with them.
In the killing fields of Gaza where heavily-armed Israeli troops in Merkava tanks and US-supplied F16 strike aircraft, fire high-explosive missiles into a civilian population in acts of collective punishment – to date, over 2000 lives, the majority of which are unarmed civilians including hundreds of women and children, have been taken.
All governments lie, as I.F. Stone pointed out, including Israel and Hamas. But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it. It routinely paints a picture for the outside world that is diametrically opposed to reality. And all of us reporters who have covered the occupied territories have run into Israel’s Alice-in-Wonderland narratives, which we dutifully insert into our stories—required under the rules of American journalism—although we know they are untrue.
Following the disturbing release of a video depicting James Foley, a New York reporter who disappeared during an assignment in Syria, being beheaded by terrorists, many looked to Barack Obama for his comments regarding the disturbing news.
Today, in a nation of 317 million people, some 109,631,000 Americans now live in a household that receives government welfare. The number, which is likely much higher, comes from the latest Census Bureau data from the fourth quarter of 2012.
Children never start wars, yet they are the ones that are killed, maimed, traumatized and left homeless, terrified and permanently scarred.
“My child became blind and lost the ability to speak, his dad died and his three brothers are seriously wounded. He still has not been told about the loss of his dad,” says the mother of 7-year-old Mohamad Badran.
If there was one thing the Obama administration did not need as it is careening from one international crisis to another, was compounding comparisons to the Carter administration and its botched attempt to rescue US hostages in 1980 Iran also known as Operation Eagle Claw. Well, as of moments ago, that comparison is now in play following what the Pentagon just revealed was a botched attempt to recue a number of American hostages held by ISIS, “early this summer.”
Israel reveals its true colors and exposes its true aspirations every time it attacks Gaza (or any other self-perceived enemy) as being the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, even to the degree of committing genocide.
The western world/Washington consensus group are guilty of enormous war crimes in their full complicit support of Israel, regardless of the rhetoric expressing their concern over the deaths, while they continue to supply Israel with its military needs.
War between and among nations has been supplanted by structural violence within nations, whereby the aggressors are the elites, acting through the institutions of state and international organizations, and the victims the common man. The end goal is the termination of the vast majority of the world’s genetic lines so as to reverse the population explosion and attain the sustainability of human civilization on a finite planet. In the process, everything has been turned upside down and inside out.
A December 2013 Reason-Rupe poll found that 58% of Americans thought that police militarization has gone too far A new Pew research poll shows that a plurality of people think that the police have gone too far in Ferguson, Missouri So why does…
Journalists daring to criticize Israel responsibility face likely dismissal and banishment from MSM employment.
Once again, Israel waged cold, calculated premeditated aggression against near defenseless Palestinians.
An Israeli Goliath mercilessly attacked a Palestinian David. It did so for unjustifiable reasons. Mass slaughter, destruction and human misery followed.
To charge NATO with formally endangering those it is pledged to serve and protect is a serious accusation. I would not do it if they were not guilty as Hades, and they are. It is an abject betrayal, another confirmation of the threat brought to us by the horrendous quality of Western leadership.
Following criticism by Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, and the introduction of legislation to curtail police militarization by Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson, Sen. Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat and chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said his committee will a design a program to determine if the Defense Department’s surplus equipment is being used appropriately.
From the National Library of Medicine:
The oldest recorded medical use of copper is mentioned in the Smith Papyrus, one of the oldest books known. This Egyptian medical text, written between 2600 and 2200 B.C., describes the application of copper to sterilize chest wounds and drinking water. Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, and others also used copper or copper compounds for the treatment of such ailments as headaches, burns, intestinal worms, and ear infections and for hygiene in general.

The difference between what happened in Boston in the wake of the Boston Marathon explosion and what is happening now in Ferguson, Missouri, is not in the government’s response but in the community’s response.
This is what happens when you ignore the warning signs.
What started as a contested shooting of 18 year-old Michael Brown, has now been nudged into a full blown racial conflict in Ferguson, MO by Communists, the New Black Panthers and the DOJ (yes, you read that right, the US Department of Justice). Trayvon Martin didn’t get the job done, so the race hustlers have moved on to their next racial martyr to incite riots and violence and further the Progressive agenda.

A fabricated report was spread by the UK Guardian newspaper and BBC that
a Russian armored convoy entered Ukraine and was destroyed by the Ukrainian military. The German media including Die Welt picked up the false report and spread the hysteria. Once again we have confirmation that the Western media is corrupt and unreliable.
The drums for war are being loudly beaten in Washington, European capitals, and the presstitute Western media. A headline in the Asia Times is “NATO Is Desperate For War.” http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Central_Asia/CEN-01-080814.html This time the target is Russia, a major nuclear power.
The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces. Such a preposterous lie tells us that Western propagandists have no respect whatsoever for the intelligence of Western peoples.
… the fuses of three major crises still smoldering were lit during the U.S. Clinton administration (1992-2000), especially during Clinton’s second term (1996-2000). People tend to forget such matters while they concentrate their attention solely on current events. However, it often happens that what we are witnessing in current times has been years in preparation, long after the initiators have left the political scene. What the George W. Bush administration did and what Barack Obama is doing have been a continuation of policies that the Bill Clinton administration initiated in the first place.
Despite the scientific consensus that global warming is occurring and caused by human activity, a new survey conducted for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette demonstrates that many Americans remain uncertain about the impact of climate change and the need for government action to address it. Only 41 percent of Americans believe that ‘most scientists agree that climate change is happening now caused mainly by human activities.’
In its latest ploy to brainwash consumers, Monsanto is teaming up with a major media conglomerate to bribe nonprofits with money in exchange for promoting GMO foods on TV. And they want a celebrity chef to be part of the equation. On August 5, Gawker published an email from Condé Nast outlining plans for a
Moses Hess, Karl Marx’s collaborator, postulated in the nineteenth century that the end of history will have to be understood in messianic and therefore historical terms.
According to Hess, Jewish revolutionaries are supposed to break taboos and cross boundaries. As a corollary, those revolutionaries will continually strive to break open the abyss of anarchic revolution.
