Network: Howard Beale, the last sane man in the world

By Jon Rappoport

Television as a form of knowledge in the New Age...

The best film ever made about television’s war on the population is Paddy Chayefsky’s scorching masterpiece, Network (1976). Yet it stages only a few minutes of on-air television.

The rest of the film is dialogue and monologue about television. Thus you could say that, in this case, word defeats image.

Even when showing what happens on the TV screen, Network bursts forth with lines like these, from newsman Howard Beale, at the end of his rope, on-camera, speaking to his in-studio audience and millions of people in their homes...

A trip down the memory hole: Exploring Washington Post's fake journalism through the years

In the words of Big Journalism correspondent John Nolte at Breitbart News, today's mainstream media is rife with "liars, frauds, partisans, cheats, plagiarists, and those who tolerate, defend and enable all of them."

In fact, he continues, "there is no American institution -- not the NFL, not the tobacco companies, not any corporation or enterprise regularly targeted by the media -- that engages in anywhere near the amount of fraud and dishonesty that serially oozes from Our Media Overlords."

One of the most regular abusers of the public trust -- though always reporting under the guise of honesty and integrity -- is one of the country's legacy newspapers and serial Pulitzer Prize winners: The Washington Post.

Irresponsible New York Times Russia Bashing

Times editors wage war on Russia irresponsibly - by featuring Big Lies and burying hard truths.

Correspondents are prohibited from reporting anything contrary to editorial policy - no matter how true or important, especially on war and peace issues.

Two June Times editorials repeat the same tired old disinformation featured earlier. "Russia's invasion and annexation of Crimea (was) an egregious violation of Ukraine's sovereignty," according to a June 5 editorial.

Teenage Josh Duggar Fingered His 5 Year-Old Sister's Vagina

Yeah, that harsh headline was necessary because we are now in the middle of a bullshit river when it comes to the juvenile crimes of Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the Duggar clan featured on 19 Kids and Counting (aka "That Show We'll Never See Again") and former leader at the Family Research Council (motto: "We don't know any Josh Duggar"). From ages 14-15, Josh Duggar fingered girls, including four out of five of his sisters, and it wasn't just "over their clothes while they were sleeping," as Josh's parents told Megyn Kelly last night on the Fox "news" program The Kelly Sneer.

CARBONAZI BEX ALERT - New research suggests global warming is accelerating

With 2015 so far running hotter than any year on record, and with May temperatures expected to be in the 0.79–0.84°C anomaly range, it becomes increasingly likely that we will set another all-time record this year. With hope, this will end the discussion of the so-called “pause” or “hiatus,” which never existed in the first place.

Boston police cast doubt on claim terror suspect planned to behead Pamela Gellar

The organizer of a May event in Texas highlighting cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed said on Thursday that she was the target of a man who federal prosecutors said had intended to behead police officers in Boston.

However, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said it did not seem that Usamaah Abdullah Rahim had developed a specific plan to attack Pamela Geller.

Destabilization, Inc. - Regime change by any means necessary

When the official history of the realm is one day written, it may contain several chapters that establish President Barack Obama as a great flag-bearer of liberty, free trade, and economic recovery. Those chapters will be drenched in distortion, tinged with the blood of true freedom fighters, darkened by the vanished jobs and sickly pall of an economy in permanent decline. But though parlor tricks like fiddling with unemployment numbers and disguising offshoring as free trade are notable for their sheer chutzpa, few deceits are more striking than those that occur in the sordid arena of regime change.

The Red Cross’ Secret Disaster

. . . . Red Cross officials at national headquarters in Washington, D.C. compounded the charity’s inability to provide relief by “diverting assets for public relations purposes,” as one internal report puts it. Distribution of relief supplies, the report said, was “politically driven.”

During Isaac, Red Cross supervisors ordered dozens of trucks usually deployed to deliver aid to be driven around nearly empty instead, “just to be seen,” one of the drivers, Jim Dunham, recalls.

“We were sent way down on the Gulf with nothing to give,” Dunham says. The Red Cross’ relief effort was “worse than the storm.”

During Sandy, emergency vehicles were taken away from relief work and assigned to serve as backdrops for press conferences, angering disaster responders on the ground.

Broadcast Evening News Fail To Cover Jeb Bush's Super PAC Problem

Broadcast evening news programs on ABC, NBC, and CBS completely ignored likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush's questionable delay in announcing his campaign while he sidesteps campaign laws and continues coordinating with his super PAC. Despite increasing scrutiny of a strategy that "tests the legal definition of [a] candidate," the nightly news programs have devoted zero coverage to the matter since The Associated Press (AP) first reported on it in April.

We are the propagandists: The real story about how The New York Times and the White House has turned truth in the Ukraine on its head

ver since the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, reality itself has come to seem up for grabs. Karl Rove, a diabolically competent political infighter but of no discernible intellectual weight, may have been prescient when he told us to forget our pedestrian notions of reality—real live reality. Empires create their own, he said, and we’re an empire now.

The Ukraine crisis reminds us that the pathology is not limited to the peculiar dreamers who made policy during the Bush II administration, whose idea of reality was idealist beyond all logic. It is a late-imperial phenomenon that extends across the board. “Unprecedented” is considered a dangerous word in journalism, but it may describe the Obama administration’s furious efforts to manufacture a Ukraine narrative and our media’s incessant reproduction of all its fallacies.

EDITORS OF WORLD’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS MEDICAL JOURNALS: “MUCH OF THE SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE, PERHAPS HALF, MAY SIMPLY BE UNTRUE”

Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices.

The Manipulative Media Techniques that Restrict Spiritual Freedom

The use of propaganda and negative framing techniques is rampant in both print and broadcast media. These techniques are used to portray alternative spirituality in a negative light, manipulating mass media consumers to fear and despise new religious movements as a criminal evil to be avoided at all costs. This article examines the framing techniques used to harm spirituality.

When we turn on the news, open a paper or watch our favourite current affairs show, we might expect to be informed, not manipulated. What many may not consider or realise, however, is just how biased and sensationalist these forms of media can be, and how much they can influence our world view.

US Claims Assad Supporting ISIS as US Supports ISIS

By Brandon Turbeville

Reminiscent of a 1970’s television show, whenever one tunes in to the mainstream corporate news to observe the latest propaganda from the US government and the State Department in particular, the viewer can scarcely contain himself from asking “What will they think of next?”

Indeed, mainstream news and the US State Department must be attempting to top themselves in a contest that could only be titled “Wackiest theory of the week.”

Enter this week’s contestant: the “Assad is supporting ISIS” claim...

Is the Western Media Balanced on Any Scale?

Two years ago, a news article about Venezuela in the Christian Science Monitor reported that “Globovisión, widely considered to be the last standing television station to aggressively criticize the Chávez regime, was sold last month to a group of businessmen believed to be friendly with the government.” It is only one sentence in one news article, but in a few ways it reveals that the western media has spent well over a decade parroting anything said by the Venezuelan opposition which is funded and staunchly backed by the US government. For one thing, Andrew Rosati, the reporter I quoted, refers to Venezuela’s democratically elected government as a “regime”. That alone indicates that coverage of the Venezuelan government has been almost one hundred percent negative. Would any reporter refer to “the Obama regime”, and would it ever get past an editor? The same applies to US allies. Good luck finding a western reporter who would dare call Israel’s government a “regime” in a news article.

Never Mind FIFA, How about a Crackdown on the Banksters?

The belated focus of American and British authorities on the alleged wrongdoings at FIFA can be readily seen as both ludicrous and laughable when we compare that with the absolute dearth of interest by these same authorities in applying law enforcement where it ought to be applied – on the Wall Street and City of London banksters.

Both the timing of the US-launched corruption probe – in the week of FIFA’s annual conference and leadership election – plus the way that senior American and British officials, not to mention the publicity of Western news media, have weighed-in to rebuke FIFA suggests that it is all part of a coordinated political campaign authored at the highest level of government. That, in turn, suggests that there is an ulterior political agenda behind the supposed criminal crackdown on FIFA, and that the ulterior agenda is the Western objective to undermine Russia.

6 Insane News Stories About Terrorism (That Were Total B.S.)

Washington Post editorial board functions as quack science Monsanto operatives... key articles essentially 'written' by Monsanto

The entire editorial board of the Washington Post functions as a group of hilarious quack science Monsanto operatives pretending to be engaged in reporting real news. It's so bad that key articles published by the Post now appear to be "written" by Monsanto, with the "Greenwashington Post" parroting Monsanto's quack corporate "science" talking points. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the Post's hit piece response to Chipotle's announcement of going 100% non-GMO on their menu items.

BEX ALERT - The Lies that Whole Foods Tells

The organic food market is estimated at $63 billion globally, with more than half of those sales occuring in the United States. (If "natural products" are included, the organic market is $290 billion in the U.S. alone.) It's no wonder, then, why Wal-Mart and other mainstream retailers are jumping onto the organic bandwagon. There is an awful lot of money to be made.

However, according to a damning report issued by the organization Academics Review, the rapidly growing organic food market is built upon a foundation of lies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article from a year ago is a hit piece on Organic Foods to protect the profits of food additive and GMO companies. FAIR points out that the report cited in this article provides no proof of the allegations it makes, and points out that author Joanna Schroeder has a pattern of selective citations to bolster a pre-determined outcome.

Watering Israel's Image

Israel is the object of widespread admiration for its economic and technical accomplishments and the ingenuity that went into them — for being a nation that made the desert bloom. Much of the admiration is quite warranted, with Israeli talent and resourcefulness having not only produced blooms on kibbutzes but also a leading high-tech sector today.

The Hunger Games: New CBS reality show exploits poor families by making them grovel for $101,000

As if to prove there are new depths to be plumbed in the world of reality television (because who knew?), CBS just debuted The Briefcase, a show which takes poverty porn, class anxiety, emotional manipulation and exploitation and packages them all neatly into a pretty despicable hour of primetime television. Kicking off each episode with the question, “What would you do with $101,000?” the show then deep-dives into a competition that asks two unwitting, financially strapped families to choose between two no-win options: being financially solvent yet appearing heartless and greedy, or drowning in debt yet having audiences recognize them as selfless and giving.

Huge Explosion In Latakia Reveals US HRW Hypocrisy

By Brandon Turbeville

On May 25, when a large explosion took place in Latakia, Syria, a few mainstream media outlets covered the incident from the angle of it being yet one more sign that the Syrian regime was losing its grip on power. This explosion was followed by a huge yellow plume of smoke that caused many informed observers to wonder whether or not the explosion was that of a chemical weapon.

On the chemical weapons question, however, the mainstream Western press was silent...

Israel Is A Discredit To America — Paul Craig Roberts

Jeffrey St. Clair, one of the few remaining Western journalists with a moral conscience, describes the latest Israeli horror to which we are all accomplices.

The Israel Lobby tries to prevent reports and criticism of Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians by branding every critic of every policy of the extreme right-wing Israeli government an “anti-semite.” In other words, if you object to Israeli armed forces shooting down Palestinian children in the streets and then bombing the funerals of the kids the Israelis have already murdered, you hate Jews and are an anti-Semite.

The success that the Israel Lobby has enjoyed in imposing this twisted logic on Congress, the White House, the media, the universities and the insouciant American public is astonishing. As a consequence, Americans are no longer answerable to Christian morality but to the evil that the Israel Lobby represents.

Russia and China mock divide and rule

Divide et impera? It’s not working. And it’s bound to fail miserably.

As it stands, what we do know is that 2015 will be a hair-raising year in myriad aspects... we all still remain under the sign of a fearful, dangerous, rampantly irrational Empire of Chaos.

Russia could outmaneuver Western financial markets by cutting them off from its wealth of oil and natural gas. The markets would inevitably collapse – uncontrolled chaos for the Empire of Chaos (or “controlled chaos”, in Putin’s own words).

In a different vein of the “soft beds of the East” seducing Marcus Aurelius, the silky splendors of chic Beijing offer a glimpse of an extremely self-assured emerging power. After all, Europe is nothing but a catalogue of multiple sclerosis and Japan is under its sixth recession in 20 years.

POETS’ TALK — Where do we fit in in ‘the march of Time’?

The gatekeepers have, I believe, crucified American poetry upon a cross erected by “language poets,” “identity poets,” “politically correct poets,” “apolitical poets” and general nincompoops -- Gary Corseri

The Arts have fallen into an era of petite academicism, crass commercialism and manipulated populism. So, our challenges are many; they are harsh; let us hope they will be invigorating!

Poets who do not see, who do not confront what is out there and around them-- are cowards! Which needn’t mean that that is ALL we must do! But… we must see and confront what surrounds us at some point! Not always…, but when it’s right to do so. To advocate that we always do it is asking us to be propagandists.José M. Tirado

Future Imperfect: Tomorrowland (Review)

It might be a little unfair to criticize Tomorrowland for sticking to themes that, admittedly, are fine and comforting presences in a childrens’ movie. However, Bird’s commitment to abstract banalities and spineless pep talks accomplish neither. Kids should be encouraged to hope and dream and invent fun things. Hell, everybody should. That’s still no excuse for a mess of a story that contradicts itself tonally, politically, and philosophically. Tomorrowland isn’t going to inspire the world’s next generation of scientists. It takes a lot more than a movie to do that.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not in the regular habit of posting reviews about movies. I generally prefer to write my own when needed.

But since I discussed this latest Disney film, "Tomorrowland" in the context of its pandering to the global warming agenda, I figured it is relevant to mention in follow-up that Disney has a $190 million flop on its hands!

Some other reviews...

Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ movie fails to meet high expectations

'Tomorrowland' Dreams Big, But Fails To Rake In Big Bucks At The Box Office

'Tomorrowland' sermonizes, fails to inspire

And finally ‘Tomorrowland’ Exposes Hollywood’s Originality Problem

The last one is right on the button. Ever since Eisner, Disney projects have been planned by marketing people who treat a movie like a salad; add a few more nuts and flakes and people will want to eat it. That may make sense designing a menu but is a recipe for losing the narrative in a film, and along with it your audience!

Moving beyond Disney, the political correctness movement which infected Hollywood in the 1990s repeated the mistake made during the McCarthy years of driving the most creative and original people out of the industry for the crime of ... being creative and thinking truly original thoughts, meaning thoughts the government doesn't like. Been there, done that, didn't buy the T-shirt!

The best minds in Hollywood have been kicked out of Hollywood, because obedient dummies are what is wanted!

Disney may have felt they could return to the formula of "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" which ran from 1954 through 1993. Originally run on NBC to fill out their transition to the full-color network, NBC thought they were getting the catalog of Disney movies and cartoons, only to learn to their dismay that every 3rd program was basically an infomercial for the Anaheim park. Back then it worked, as with a medium with only 3 channels, anything on TV was seen as special and exalted. In today's media-saturated world with a thousand channels (and endless re-runs) being seen on TV does not have the social status it once did. Social media, which makes everyone their own production company, has ended the mystique of being special just because you are seen on an appliance! Basing a movie on a section of the theme park (even if just the title) backfired.

Hollywood today does lack creativity because the truly original thinkers are banned, as they were back in McCarthy's time, and like McCarthy's time Hollywood is trying to survive by resorting to endless remakes of what-worked-before-only-better. That too, is also a thing of the past as everyone has seen the earlier versions on their thousand channel cable more times than they wanted to!

There are, of course, original stories out there; stories people would really like to see, like how Vince Foster really died, or how the US Navy shot down TWA 800, or how the Lusitania really was carrying weapons of war, and so forth. But Hollywood, ever the propaganda servant of the US Government will not dare touch those, nor anyone who even talks about them. And so it is back to endless remakes of what-worked-before-only-slightly-different, with the inevitable politically-correct twists.

Disney just learned a hard lesson that people no longer buy a ticket to see every movie, and the Disney name is not a box-office guarantee any longer; not since the Disney family got the heave-ho.

Disney put $190 million into this film. The Hollywood rule of thumb is that after advertising and distribution costs plus the theaters' percentages, a film has to take in 2.5 times that original budget at the ticket windows (DVD and cable sales) just to break even. That means in the case of "Tomorrowland", $475 million, almost half a billion at the box office just to break even. Despite today's high theater ticket prices, I doubt Disney will see that much cash from this disaster, and frankly never intended to see it myself, given its overt pandering to the global warming hoax.

And that last part might also explain the lukewarm sales for the film. More and more people know the global warming claims are a hoax, which make it hard to take seriously a film that treats it as real. For people my age, who listened to promises of the glorious future world we would all grow up to see, only to wind up living in ... Detroit, the optimism of "Tomorrowland" rings very hollow, almost like the Busby Berkeley films of the 1930s depression, but without the leggy dancing girls in skimpy costumes!

That is not enough to hold our attention, no matter how great the visual effects are!

Greville Janner - How "People in High Places" Covered Up for a Parliamentary Pedophile

The Lord Greville Janner affair shows no signs of winding down despite the best efforts by the authorities to kick it into the long grass. Each week brings new revelations about the former President of the British Board of Jewish Deputies, who is suspected of at least 22 cases of child sexual abuse.

Up until now the scrutiny has mainly focused on how, although said to be too ill with dementia to be tried, the 86-year-old founder of the Holocaust Education Trust was able to take part in parliamentary debates, collect a hundred thousand pounds in expenses, and was compus mentus enough to sign over his property deeds to his children thereby putting them out of range of any damages litigation.

It's Ok, Everyone, Nusra Says Nusra Won't Hurt Us

By Brandon Turbeville

Al-Nusra Front has taken to the airwaves with a message for all Westerners and Americans in particular – they really aren’t that bad. And there are no plans to attack Americans. They are just your friendly neighborhood terrorist organization, funded handsomely by the West and the GCC, raping and beheading their way across the Middle East. There’s nothing to worry about so long as the US allows them to continue to rape little girls, cut off heads, impose savage Sharia law, and eat the hearts and livers of the occasional dissident.

This message was brought to you by the feudal monarchy of Qatar and its mouthpiece organization, Al-Jazeera and conducted with a journalist whose past is checkered with a conviction of supporting al-Qaeda...

US Cries FIFA Foul to Penalize Russia

The melodrama had the air of a politically driven media campaign for maximum publicity.

?But the real goal of the full-frontal assault on FIFA, which involved dawn raids at a five-star hotel in Swiss city Zurich, seems more to do with American political purpose to damage Russia’s World Cup plans. That objective has to be seen in the context of Washington’s aim to isolate and destabilize Moscow in an ongoing geopolitical battle that is currently centred on Ukraine.

Russia’s World Cup plans appear to be now similarly targeted for an ulterior political agenda. Within hours of the US-launched arrests of FIFA officials in Zurich, the football federation was obliged to state that the forthcoming World Cup in Russia was not in jeopardy of cancellation over related claims of wrongdoing in the selection of that venue.

If one were to propose a realistic and reasonable ‘US Grand Strategy toward China’ one would have to start by shedding all the false assumptions and bellicose proposals that have been put forth by the CFR and the authors of the Report under review.

The US should not attempt to block China’s growth and expansion; it should assist and share in its ascendancy, especially in the face of great global climate and energy challenges. Washington is much more likely to strengthen its Asian – Pacific partnership and succeed in its diplomacy if it replaced its military posturing with robust economic growth.

Yemen Crisis a 'Humanitarian Catastrophe,' Experts Say

It’s been just more than two months since a Saudi Arabia-led coalition began its airstrike campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen, and the country has since become a “humanitarian catastrophe,” experts said Thursday.

“I am shocked about what I have seen,” said Medecins Sans Frontieres’ Middle East Operations Manager Pablo Marco, who spent 50 days inside the country recently. “The biggest problem is the fact both parties in the conflict are not respecting the civilians and, specifically, they are not respecting medical facilities and medical staff.”

Marco was one in a panel of three experts in Washington who took a hard line against attacks by the Houthis as well as the 10-country coalition engaged in a bombing campaign against them for the past 10 weeks. The U.S. provides intelligence and material support to that Arab-led coalition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Yemenite people deserve their own peaceful self determination.

The Saudi attacks have been engineered to destroy the people of the country, and the infrastructure, so that the Yemenite people will beg for their old dictator, al-Saleh, back.

DENNY HASTERT IS CONTEMPTIBLE, BUT HIS INDICTMENT EXEMPLIFIES AMERICA’S OVER-CRIMINALIZATION PATHOLOGY

That common arc is more of an indictment of U.S. political culture than Hastert himself, but he’s certainly been happily and hungrily feeding at the trough. A political system that essentially ensures that every powerful political official becomes extremely rich is one that is inherently corrupt – as we’ve been taught for decades about those Bad Other Countries – and that is the most interesting and most important part of this story.

But Hastert was not indicted for any of that. Nor was he indicted for the alleged, unspecified “past misconduct” against an unnamed person to whom he agreed to pay $3.5 million to keep concealed.

Instead, Hastert was indicted for two alleged felonies: 1) withdrawing cash from his bank accounts in amounts and patterns designed to hide the payments; and 2) lying to the FBI about the purpose of those withdraws once they detected them and then inquired with him. That’s it. For those venial acts, he faces five years in a federal prison on each count.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt that Hastert will actually do real time; if he does, he will get off with a slap on the wrist, and short sentence to a "Club Fed", which I am sure, his attorney is working on right now.

And yes, our alleged "justice system" is completely skewered in favor of the rich, privileged, and powerful.

It should not be this way at all.

And why our prisons bulge with prisoners, when Sweden is emptying its jails, (because the total approach there is rehabilitation, so that people do not re-offend) leaves much to ponder.

Legendary Journalist in Private: “It Is All Fraudulent, All of It, Everywhere”

How to avoid Google surveillance and protect your personal data

It all seemed rather innocent in the beginning. It certainly seemed convenient, and still is – maybe more so than ever, to be truthful. But if you haven’t noticed, slowly and gradually, during the past 17 years since its inception, Google has evolved from being a company which once merely provided Internet users with a free search engine and email to becoming an all-encompassing entity that monitors nearly everything you do.

Media Promotes Junk Science on Fetal Pain

The U.S. House Of Representatives recently passed an act that would prohibit abortions from 20 weeks after fertilization, except in cases of rape, incest or when the life of a mother is endangered. A photograph in the womb at this stage of development is shown on the right.

The legislation states that its purpose is to protect “the lives of unborn children from the stage at which substantial medical evidence indicates that they are capable of feeling pain.” According to the bill’s authors, this occurs “by 20 weeks after fertilization, if not earlier.” Media outlets, however, are reporting otherwise.

The Clinton Foundation Paid Sidney Blumenthal $10K/Month As He Gave Horrible Libya Advice To State Dept

Mr. Gowdy’s chief interest, according to people briefed on the inquiry, is a series of memos that Mr. Blumenthal — who was not an employee of the State Department — wrote to Mrs. Clinton about events unfolding in Libya before and after the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. According to emails obtained by The New York Times, Mrs. Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time, took Mr. Blumenthal’s advice seriously, forwarding his memos to senior diplomatic officials in Libya and Washington and at times asking them to respond. Mrs. Clinton continued to pass around his memos even after other senior diplomats concluded that Mr. Blumenthal’s assessments were often unreliable.

But an examination by The Times suggests that Mr. Blumenthal’s involvement was more wide-ranging and more complicated than previously known, embodying the blurry lines between business, politics and philanthropy that have enriched and vexed the Clintons and their inner circle for years.

Corporate Media Accused of Parroting Fear-Mongering over Patriot Act

But as other national security experts note, the Patriot Act is far from a safeguard against terrorism. In an op-ed published last Sunday, ACLU legal deputy director Jameel Jaffer criticized the media's choice of publishing such quotes wholesale without challenging their veracity. The "claim that the expiration of Section 215 would deprive the government of necessary investigative tools or compromise national security," wrote Jaffer, "is entirely without support."

The Infernal Cocktail Party Corruption of Washington’s Elite Media

Sometimes people ask me: Why do smart, elite journalists quote people who they know are lying, or being moronically stupid, but not call what they say lies and stupidities? Why do they engage in split-the-difference false equivalence in political coverage that leaves readers terribly uninformed about what’s really going on?

And I say: One big reason is the cocktail parties.

Jade Helm as Itself a Psy Op

By Jay Dyer

For most consumers of alternative news and media, the lineup of the players constitutes the tyrants and their systemic control, and the enlightened underground, with both sides fighting the great battle of winning the hearts and minds of the rest of the public. For the alternative news and information community, the possibility of large-scale psychological operations within alternative media itself are generally outside the spectrum of the possible. Indeed, crowds today are sill cheering on Assange and his Vaudeville Whistleblower Roadshow with Bradley-Chelsea Manning, and more recently finding themselves intellectually snowed in by our last hero, Snowden.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received information about the Benghazi attacks on her private email which were later marked "classified" when requested by the U.S. Congress and watchdog groups, according to documents released by the State Department on Friday. The department made public hundreds of emails from Clinton’s private server related to the congressional investigation into the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The emails are only a sliver of the 55,000 pages of emails Clinton gave President Obama's Department of State, and they don't include the email scrubbed from her private server.

How to Become a 'Mouthpiece for a Mass Murderer'

So, in the event that you’d like to save yourself the bother of reading it in its entirety, I’ll summarize: Stephen Cohen, formerly respected Russia scholar, disagrees with the White House on Ukraine and is therefore a Putin stooge. That’s really the long and short of it.

RFERL laid into Cohen for “defending the Kremlin’s agenda” in the piece which presents an account of his recent debate with Washington Post columnist (and determined neo-con agenda pusher) Anne Applebaum and former world chess champion player Garry Kasparov.

The piece quotes Angela Stent, director of the Center for Russian Studies at Georgetown University, who explains why Cohen’s Kremlin defense crosses the line; because, she says, it’s not just that Cohen is saying he understands Putin’s motivations, which would be semi-okay (maybe, kind of, sort of), but it’s that he actually has taken the position that “Putin is right”.

Monsanto Employee Admits an Entire Department Exists to “Discredit” Scientists

Dare to publish a scientific study against Big Biotech, and Monsanto will defame and discredit you. For the first time, a Monsanto employee admits that there is an entire department within the corporation with the simple task of ‘discrediting’ and ‘debunking’ scientists who speak out against GMOs.

The WHO recently classified glyphosate, a chemical in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, as carcinogenic – news that is really heating things up with biotech. So Monsanto has been demanding that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) retract their statements about the poisons’s toxicity to human health.

To beat ISIS, kick out US-led coalition

It is time to cut these losses and bring some heavyweights into this battle against extremism.

Baghdad and Washington are pointing fingers, each accusing the other of being asleep on the job.

An objective look at US interests in the region paint an entirely different picture. The Americans seek to maintain absolute hegemony in the Mideast, even as they exit costly military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Their primary interests are 1) access to low cost oil and gas, 2) propping up Israel, and more recently, 3) undermining Russian (and Chinese) influence in the region.

Nazis on the Backlot

Memorial Day used to be a somber occasion, dedicated to reflection and remembrance of those killed in America’s wars. Today it is instead a celebration of ongoing wars, a long shopping weekend and the unofficial start of summer. Part of the problem with America’s shifting perception of the price to be paid when one goes to war is that it has been shaped by Hollywood and video games, so much so that it has become divorced from the horrible reality of what happens when countries and peoples do their best to kill each other. Protected by two oceans, the continental United States has been largely immune from being on the receiving end of war, not suffered any form of military attack since Pancho Villa rode against Blackjack Pershing in New Mexico in 1916. And apart from some experiments with weather balloons launched by the Japanese in 1942, the country has never been subjected to aerial bombardment.

Media Censorship of Critical Coverage of California’s Bill to Mandate Vaccines for School Children

A few weeks ago, he was asked as an honored guest on Bonnie Faulkner’s show, Guns and Butter which talks about the politics of economics and airs on Pacifica KPFA public radio stations. In the spirit of truth, Bonnie wanted listeners to hear the other side of the vaccine talk, not the “case closed” version. What you’re not being told about vaccines. And specifically SB277, the California bill to mandate vaccines for virtually all Californian school children. Who better to ask then Null, an alternative health expert, medical activist and Pacifica veteran?

When it came time to air, however, they were told they weren’t allowed – or rather, they were outright censored and the show was cut

Banksters admit rigging markets since 2007, ‘fined’ 33% of 1 quarter’s income while looting tens of trillions tax-free

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tu32CCA_Ig

Asset-hole and so-called “too big to jail” banks admitted criminal looting through market manipulation and collusion last week, and will return a mere 33% of one quarter’s income without prison sentences (total “fine” of $5.7 billion from $15.5 billion 2015 1st-quarter combined incomes - see below).

Please note that the US Department of Justice (sic) fails to communicate the amount looted by the banksters, only the “fines” without context of:

this is a bankster operating expense for pretending to operate under law,
“regulators” serve in government “minor league” positions until “called up” to work for the banksters in the “big leagues,”
requiring the banks to “fire” eight responsible executives without prison sentences just allows them to be rehired by other banksters to resume “business” as usual.

First, we must learn the facts and face the truth that the U.S. is the biggest war maker in the world.

Second, we must commit ourselves and organize others to a true revolution of values and confront the corporations and politicians who continue to push our nation into war and inflate the military budget with the hot air of permanent fear mongering.

Third, we must admit what our country has been doing wrong, and we must make amends for the violence that the U.S. has waged on countries all over our world.

Kennedy Drops Bombshell: 70% News Ad Revenue From Pharma

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is at it again. After speaking in Sacramento, California against SB-277, pummeling the Centers for Disease Control during public testimony in Vermontand appearing on Bill Maher’s HBO show to do the same, he has now broke major news during a recent interview. Speaking with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura regarding the vaccine industry and big pharma, Kennedy confirmed what many have assumed by stating:

“I ate breakfast last week with the president of a network news division and he told me that during non-election years, 70% of the advertising revenues for his news division come from pharmaceutical ads. And if you go on TV any night and watch the network news, you’ll see they become just a vehicle for selling pharmaceuticals. He also told me that he would fire a host who brought onto his station a guest who lost him a pharmaceutical account.”

Why the politically connected media elite are immune from criminal prosecution in America

What about America's liberal media elite? Do they, too, have some sort of legal immunity? Not technically as there are no laws or constitutional provisions that specifically exempt progressive elitist members of the press from legal prosecution.

However, author Katie Pavlich, news editor of the conservative TownHall.com news and opinion web site, says they might as well have immunity because they get away with criminal behavior that would likely land ordinary citizens behind bars all too often.
