Palestine: Read all about it… but not in the mainstream media

Times have changed, though, and it is becoming more and more difficult to break news in the mainstream media on this sort of scale. Embarrassing the Establishment or promoting an ounce of sympathy about the Palestinian cause or the anti-war movement is virtually impossible to do today.

The great investigative journalist John Pilger wrote recently about how independent journalists like Hersh have been driven from the “mainstream”. It was disappointing that he did not make a special reference to Palestine because quite a few journalists have found themselves out in the cold after striving to bring the daily injustices of Palestine to the fore.

Shutting Down Free Speech in America: Government and Lobbyists Work Together to Destroy the First Amendment

During the past several years, there has been increased pressure coming from some in the federal government aided and abetted powerful advocacy groups in the private sector to police social and alternative media. It is a multi-pronged attack on the First Amendment which has already limited the types of information that Americans have access to, thereby narrowing policy options to suit those in power

The process has been ostensibly driven by concerns over alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, but it is really about who controls and limits the public’s right to know what is going on out of sight in Washington and New York City, where politics and money come together. If one is interested in the free flow of information and viewpoints that comes with the alternative media, it certainly does not look that way. Robert Parry described it as a deliberate process of “demonizing and silencing dissent that questions mainstream narratives.”

‘Kill Kavanaugh’ Tops Twitter Search and Hashtag Suggestions

Typing “kill” into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: “#KillKavanaugh.” It’s also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for “ki” and the fourth suggestion in searches for “k” as of this writing.

That’s right — by typing a single letter into search, Twitter is suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee.

The search suggestion was spotted by Instapundit earlier today and has been confirmed by Breitbart News.

Reddit Now “Quarantining” Users Who Question 9/11—Direct Users to Gov’t Site Instead

A highly popular subreddit devoted to posting information which proposed information outside the official narrative to 9/11 has been “Quarantined” by the Reddit Administrators. The community has effectively been cut off from the rest of the platform and anyone who wishes to view its contents are forced to go through a checkpoint while being redirected to a government website.

On Thursday, the subreddit r/911truth was placed under a Reddit Quarantine. The Reddit Administrators claimed that the subreddit posts misinformation and then directed people seeking information on 9/11 to the official government website.

It’s Harder to Fool All of Us All the Time, but Finding the Truth Takes Work

Media organizations like Google, Facebook, Twitter and CNN depend on their reputation. It is hard, if not impossible to regain our trust once we see them as liars. We know that Google distorts search results. Youtube buries videos that don’t fit their progressive and PC agenda. Twitter sensors politically conservative speakers. CNN does little more than regurgitate progressive talking points. We expect these sources to be biased. If these media outlets told the truth by accident, then we’d need a few minutes to get over the shock and recognize the truth for what it was.

Why all of humanity must declare WAR on Google… it’s now a matter of human survival

All of humanity — every government, every nation, every culture and every individual — must declare war on Google.

This “war” must be waged as a peaceful civil rights revolution to protect and defend human dignity and human rights against the oppressive assault on humanity now being waged by Google and other tech giants.

For humanity to survive with anything resembling human rights and the freedom to speak, Google must be completely dismantled and sent to the trash heap of history.

If Google is not defeated, it will overrun governments, nations and eventually the entire world with its evil “techno-tyranny” that empowers human rights abusers like Communist China.

The time has come for humanity to take a stand against EVIL by standing against GOOGLE.

Amazon, AT&T, Google push Congress to pass online privacy bill to preempt stronger California law

Major companies including Amazon, AT&T, Apple and Google are lobbying Congress to craft legislation that would preempt a first-of-its-kind California privacy law that grants sweeping online protections to consumers.

Senior executives from these companies, plus Twitter and Charter Communications, offered a show of industry support for a federal privacy bill with weaker consumer protections during a Senate hearing Wednesday.

Such a bill would block states like California from enacting stronger privacy protections. The executives argued that a patchwork of different state laws would make it tough for companies to operate and would threaten innovation. The takeaway from news outlet Axios: "Tech companies want privacy rules, but on their own terms."

PAYPAL DOES BUSINESS WITH DEGENERATE WEBSITES AFTER BANNING INFOWARS

Payment processor PayPal continues doing business with some of the internet’s most vile websites despite recently terminating its contract with Infowars for allegedly violating the company’s “acceptable use policy.”

For example, according to Wikipedia, popular website WorldStarHipHop “is infamous for posting videos of violent fights, police brutality, public sexual acts, public shaming, child shaming, and child abuse.”

Yet, below is a screenshot of the site’s store page showing PayPal as an acceptable form of payment.

The content on the site is so bad we will not link any videos in this article, but here are just some of the headlines found on WorldStarHipHop.

– “What A Shame: Parents Let 9-Year-Old Child Get Tattooed In Ohio!”
– “Couple That Fades Together, Stays Together: Newlyweds Get Into A Brawl Inside A Nightclub!”
– “Mother Brings 2 Year Old Son To Her Fight With Another Girl”

BBC MISREPORTS TRUMP’S WORDS – REPLACES “MORE” WITH “WAR”

The BBC tweeted a gross misrepresentation of President’s Trump’s words given during his UN speech by reporting Trump said “war will follow” rather than his actual words, “more will follow.”

The UK network’s world news Twitter account (@BBCWorld) sent the false message on Tuesday to its 24 million followers.

“Donald Trump tells UN General Assembly ‘war will follow’ after his decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran, who he accuses of ‘slaughter in Syria and Yemen.'” reads the now deleted BBC tweet.

Former Google Scientist: Oversight of ‘Unethical’ Company Is ‘Urgently Needed’

Jack Poulson, a former senior research scientist at Google, sent a letter to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation calling the company “unethical” and stating that oversight of the company is “urgently needed” after resigning from the Silicon Valley titan over its censored China search project.

In his letter, Poulson described Google’s censored China search project as “unethical” and claimed “greater oversight and accountability” of the company was “urgently needed.”

He also claimed Google would now be clamping down on internal investigations to stop future revelations of a similar nature from reaching the public, and called on the Senate to have a hearing over the matter.

Pro-Israeli Terror Threat at Labour Conference Covered Up By MSM

A fringe venue at the Labour conference was evacuated last night after the screening of a film about my friend Jackie Walker was cancelled by a terrorist bomb threat. Jackie, a black Jewish prominent critic of Israel, is currently among those suspended from the Labour Party over accusations of anti-semitism which are, in her case, nonsense.

What is astonishing is that the state and corporate media, which has made huge play around the entirely fake news of threats to pro-Israel MP Luciana Berger leading to her being given a police escort to protect her from ordinary delegates, has completely ignored this actual and disruptive pro-Israeli threat – except where they have reported the bomb threat, using the big lie technique, as a further example of anti-semitism in the Labour Party!

Facebook’s New Propaganda Partners

Media giant Facebook recently announced (Reuters, 9/19/18) it would combat “fake news” by partnering with two propaganda organizations founded and funded by the US government: the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI). The social media platform was already working closely with the NATO-sponsored Atlantic Council think tank (FAIR.org, 5/21/18).

In a previous FAIR article (8/22/18), I noted that the “fake news” issue was being used as a pretext to attack the left and progressive news sites. Changes to Facebook’s algorithm have reduced traffic significantly for progressive outlets like Common Dreams (5/3/18), while the pages of Venezuelan government–backed TeleSur English and the independent Venezuelanalysis were shut down without warning, and only reinstated after a public outcry.

Study: TV News Is Rigged Against Brett Kavanaugh

During the twelve days since Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein publicly announced the existence of an unspecified allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows have spent nearly six hours (344 minutes) regurgitating various unproved allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

But only a tiny percentage of that coverage — a measly eight percent — has been devoted to Kavanaugh’s denials and the lack of corroboration for his accusers’ accounts.

Fake News Is Just Part Of A Plan Becoming Reality

Mainstream media outlets in the back pocket of the left have increasingly come under fire for using manipulation and fake news to spread their agenda.

Whether through news stories or entertainment avenues like film and television, the progressive agenda has taken hold.

But do you know just how deep the roots of this agenda go, and how complete the manipulation is?

Just ask journalist Chad Felix Greene, who recently called out LGBT media outlets for promoting fake news in order to further their agenda.

Panicking NYT Deletes Source Name, Caught Hiding Game-Changing Facts on Kavanaugh

The Times heavily implied in the article that Kavanaugh and his friends were some kind of sex-obsessed gang that openly bragged in the yearbook about their sexual conquests, especially with regard to one female student in particular named Renate Schroeder Dolphin, as they referred to themselves in a group picture as “Renate Alumni.”

But as Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist painstakingly pointed out, there are several glaring problems with the article from The Times that have rendered the story “fake news” and, if The Times had any integrity left, would seem to merit a full retraction and issuance of public apologies, rather than a handful of quiet and unexplained edits.

How to Have Power Over the Big Tech Companies (And Still Use Their Products)

Governments are coming for the big tech companies.

But governments use big tech’s data too… So obviously they aren’t going to solve the biggest privacy concerns.

This is a problem because the main issue with Amazon, Google, and Facebook is how they interact with governments.

I talked about this yesterday… the real reason the government won’t hold big tech accountable.

We only need to look to China’s dystopian social credit scores to see how Google and Facebook data is used by governments.

And the CIA seems to be pretty happy with their deal with Amazon and Jeff Bezos.

Why would we expect the government to protect our privacy when the government profits from the intrusion into our privacy?

Amazon Bans Books of Leading US Scholar of Ugly Side of Jewish Religious Thought (Michael Hoffman)

A couple of months ago I did an interview with one of the foremost scholars of rabbinical Judaism, Michael Hoffman. The occasion was the release of his latest book “The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome”. At the time I did not expect to have to ask for a follow-up interview with him, but when I learned that Amazon had censored his books (please see Hoffman’s own account of this here).

Specifically, the ban is on three of his books. A complete ban (Kindle + printed book) on Judaism’s Strange Gods: Revised and Expanded, as well as The Great Holocaust Trial: Revised and Expanded, while his textbook, Judaism Discovered, has been removed from the Kindle. I felt that I had to talk to him again and he kindly agreed to reply to my questions. I submit to you the full text of our Q&A which I will follow-up with a short commentary.

Professional Wrestling & America's News-Media

As a boy, I was quite non-violent, but I confess to having been fascinated with professional wrestling. For one hour, every Saturday morning, I’d watch Yukon Eric, Haystack Calhoun and Killer Kowalski attack each other in the ring in what was called, “professional wrestling.”

Of course, even as a boy, it was evident that it was a sham. Some wrestlers played the role of angry bullies; others were practically cartoon characters. The threats each made to the other before the match, the silly outfits, the absurd holds and body slams – it was clearly phony.

And yet, each Saturday, my friends would say, “Okay, maybe some of it’s phony, but did you see that guy bleedin’? That was real!”

The Real Reason the Government Won’t Hold Big Tech Accountable

Clearly, China is not going to prohibit Google and Facebook from providing them with incriminating information on citizens.

Is the CIA going to make sure the money they give Bezos doesn’t influence the Washington Post, which Bezos owns?

Are elected officials going to get Facebook out of elections, or are they going to make sure Facebook helps them win the next election?

Is the government going to protect your privacy from Google, when the government is only too happy to subpoena incriminating evidence against you from the search giant?

The government already teamed up with these companies!

And that’s, like, most of the problem!

The government is going to focus on regulating the wrong things.

NYT deliberately buries critical facts in its reporting on Kavanaugh, proving yet again the NYT is the propaganda arm of the DNC

The examples of journalistic malpractice and political deference to the far-Left Democratic Party by The New York Times continue to mount, as the paper’s coverage of the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh proves.

The Times was an early arrival to the story, publishing every breathless claim made against the nominee as though they were gospel, with very little context and virtually no balance. Reading the Times’ stories gave one the impression that a) its editors and reporters had already declared Kavanaugh guilty; and b) there wasn’t even a hint of suggestion that the accusations from the two women were ‘timed’ to wreck the judge’s confirmation, given that it was a certainty after days of Democrat-generated chaos at the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearings.

Instagram founders leaving Facebook after conflict with Zuckerberg

The founders of Instagram are leaving Facebook Inc. after growing tensions with chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg over the direction of the photo-sharing app, people familiar with the matter said. The stock dropped 2 per cent in pre-market trading Tuesday.

Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, who have been at the company since Instagram’s acquisition by Facebook in 2012, had been able to keep the brand and product independent while relying on Facebook’s infrastructure and resources to grow. Lately, they were frustrated with an uptick in day-to-day involvement by Zuckerberg, who has become more reliant on Instagram in planning for Facebook’s future, said the people, who asked not to be identified sharing internal details.

5 Glaring Reasons Why the Rite Aid Mass Shooting Disappeared from Headlines So Quickly

Last Thursday morning, a deranged individual wishing to cause harm to innocent people walked up to her job at a Rite Aid warehouse and began shooting people. Breaking news alerts filled the internet as #Aberdeen trended on Twitter and the internet buzzed with people trying to find out who would do such a thing. However, shortly after the shooter was identified, the news — unlike most mass shootings — quickly faded from headlines and fell out of the news cycle.

Snochia Moseley, 26, was the deranged individual who began shooting innocent people at 9:09 am last Thursday. Four people died, including Moseley, according to Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler, after she turned the gun on herself.

As is the case after nearly every single shooting in the country — besides this one — mainstream media and anti-gun activists alike, parrot themselves into a fury of gun control rhetoric. But that did not happen this time. Why is that?

When Sima Vaknin-Gil took over as director-general of Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs at the start of 2016, a crucial fact went largely unnoticed.

This means that for the last two years a former intelligence officer has been running Israel’s global war against BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

Her ministerial boss is Gilad Erdan, a key ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

They were last month revealed to have spent huge sums creating anti-BDS propaganda targeting social media and news media.

3 Ways Facebook Is Increasingly Becoming An Arm Of The US Government

Facebook has lately announced a series of major steps it would take to combat fake news and the global spread of misinformation that it says could influence elections, but the more we learn about just who it is Facebook is partnering with in this endeavor, the clearer it becomes that these initiatives are not at all designed to foster independent thought and discourse, but to ultimately ensure that public online discourse doesn't stray too far from official state narratives.

Mark Weisbrot, a co-director at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, recently slammed Facebook’s decision to work with US government-funded organizations as "Orwellian" — especially given the fact these organizations themselves "specialize in overseas propaganda."

Thus while claiming to fight Russian, Iranian, and other propaganda these very groups will strictly enforce an official establishment Washington and NATO view of world events.

National Review To GOP: Fight For Kavanaugh (Or Else)

The cynics - or, perhaps more precisely, the realists - believed that the Democrats were playing for time in the hopes of finding another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh. The cynics were right.

The New Yorker stooped to publish a shoddy story alleging that Kavanaugh exposed himself to a woman while he was at Yale. The alleged incident occurred at a drunken party when both were in their freshman year. What’s extraordinary is that the woman making the charge, a fellow Yale student named Deborah Ramirez, admits that she hesitated to come forward because there were such large gaps in her memory.

Journalists who dropped the ball on Iraq war still working, now targeting Syria & Iran

Hawkish journalists who loudly backed the invasion of Iraq continue to dominate US mainstream media and are calling for war again. One is even regarded as a credible chemical weapons expert for Fox News.
Back in 2003, former New York Times journalist Judith Miller wrote a series of articles prior to the Iraq invasion backing Pentagon claims that Saddam Hussein was pursuing weapons of mass destruction.

While those claims later turned out to be a big fabrication, Miller’s career hasn’t suffered and she continues to promote her hawkish views as a contributor for Fox. She’s also gone on to become a member of the Council on Foreign Relations in 2016.

Co-Author of Kavanaugh Hit Piece Admits Witness Never Saw the Incident

The standard for what constitutes a printable story these days has taken a serious downturn.

Jane Mayer, the co-author of the already thoroughly specious story claiming that another woman was the victim of inappropriate behavior from Supreme Court justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, admitted that her corroborating witness provided only a second-hand account of the story.

Actually, she first claimed that “he remembers it (the story) clearly” before being cornered by CBS anchor John Dickerson.

“Did he see it?” Dickerson asked.

“No,” Mayer responded. “As I’ve said, he heard it from someone who was there.”

And that right there is why multiple outlets passed on the story while a two-bit operation like the New Yorker ran with it.

A Favorite TV Channel Is No Longer Family-Friendly – It’s Not Who You Think

Our children are being indoctrinated in the progressive agenda like never before.

They are subjected to learning immoral material in our public schools and are targeted in children’s programming.

One cable television channel, however, is becoming the driving force behind forcing this agenda on vulnerable children, and they are pushing it further every day.

Nickelodeon has been a staple of children’s programming for decades, and many of us have fond memories of favorite shows that contained nothing more offensive than a little potty humor.

But in the last decade, Nickelodeon has been slowly introducing elements of the liberal agenda to its young viewers.

The Social Media Purge And How It Affects Everyone

Just about every website owner I know is feeling personally victimized by the recent social media purge that has been going on. But here’s an interesting fact: it isn’t, as is widely perceived, just conservative voices that are being silenced. It is dissenting voices.

It’s the voices of critical thinkers whose ideas run the gamut of philosophies who find that they no longer have much in the way of reach.

This social media purge affects everyone, even people who are not on social media. It does so in several ways:

Dissenting information is silenced which stifles discussion

Young people who are avid consumers of social media are being literally brainwashed because they only see one side of the story – any story

The social media purge harms websites that post non-establishment information because it stamps out their ability to reach readers who would be interested in their content.

THE GAMIFICATION OF TYRANNY

It looks like we’re headed for a brave new world where all citizens are rated on their loyalty to the state and are punished for wandering from its narrative.
Call it the gamification of repression.

In China, the supposedly communist state—in fact, it is an advanced form of crony capitalist authoritarianism that Marx would have disapproved—is busy setting up a rating system for all citizens. According to a paper written by an academic at the Lebanese American University in Beirut, Lebanon, scores are based on professional conduct, corruption, type of products bought, peers’ own scores, and tax evasion.

The author left something out, however. This social credit system will also be used to marginalize and stigmatize those who criticize the state.

China’s nominally communist government says the system and its massive database will allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency judges whether the region meets Clean Air Act standards based on the highest pollution readings, not how long bad air persists. By federal metrics, air district officials argue they are making strides. The highest ozone levels recorded this summer, they point out, were lower than the previous year, and the smog season began later.

Social Media and The Process of Deplatforming. Germaine Greer

The term “deplatforming” is de rigueur at the moment, a creature of the social media age and lecture circuit. Invitations to writers’ festivals can be withdrawn at a moment’s notice because the invitee has either not observed the current fashion, or has done something distinctly against it. Users of social media have their carpet, or platform, as it were, taken from under them.

The star recipient of that treatment was Alex Jones, who has found himself, and his Infowars, expelled beyond the city gates of social media babble. Social media giants, pressured by the very individuals who believe that free speech is vital oxygen to the body politic, have taken it upon themselves to police expression.

Female Pedophiles ~ The BIG List Documentary {Part 1}

“Over the past four decades our corrupt and deceitful corporate-owned mainstream media, in cooperation with feminists and women's groups, have very effectively conditioned the public with propaganda with respect to how we view men. The only women who know the truth about female sexual predators are the mothers of the male children who have been sexually molested by a female predator. Remember that for every video clip you see about a female committing a sex related crime, there's a hundred news articles for which a video of a female predator was never made. This documentary dispels the belief that only men are capable of sexual exploitation of children”. (3.00 - 3.48)

Generation being born now is the last to be free – Assange in last interview before blackout (VIDEO)

Before his links to the world was cut by his Ecuadorian hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gave an interview on how technological advances are changing humankind. He said global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.
The interview was provided to RT by organizers of the World Ethical Data Forum in Barcelona. Assange, who is currently stranded in the Ecuadorean embassy in London with no outside communication except with his legal team, has a pretty grim outlook on where humanity is going. He says it will soon be impossible for any human being to not be included into global databases collected by governments and state-like entities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pretty powerful predictions; and unfortunately, it looks like they about to turn true.

US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Blasts America’s Support for Al-Qaeda in Syria, as Trump Threatens Further Military Action

US military veteran and congresswomen for Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, has slammed US foreign policy in Syria.

Arming al-Qaeda

On the 13th of September, Gabbard told [23:06] comedian and satirist Jimmy Dore:

“Since 2011 both overtly and covertly, the United States has been providing arms, intelligence, and equipment to fighters who are allied with, fighting along side, working with, al Qaeda in this regime change war.

So these very same terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. We’ve been supporting for years, as this ground force to fight in this regime change war that we have been quietly waging now for seven years.”

These statements are strikingly up front, given the fact that these policies began under Democratic Party President Barack Obama.

On the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Gabbard also criticised Trump’s opposition the Syrian government’s plans to retake Idlib, by way of tweet:

US House candidate, HI-2

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is one of the most courageous legislators I know of, as she has publicly decried both President Obama's and President Trump's policies toward Syria.

So help me Hannah, if this woman runs for President in 2020 (DNC Chair Tom Lopez, courtesy telephone, please), I will do everything I can to support her nomination. And by 2020, this country is going to desperately want a peace candidate, who understands the finer points of the art of negotiation.

Salisbury incident: Hoax 'likely' to be one line of inquiry

On Tuesday, Mr King's wife, Anna Shapiro, 30, told the Sun that the Russian state had poisoned her and her husband in Prezzo.

The paper reported it was "what security sources fear was a suspected rat poison attack".

Ms Shapiro is a model and an Israeli citizen of Russian heritage.

A spokesman for the Sun told the BBC: "Like any newspaper, we were keen to talk to those at the centre of the incident and give them the opportunity to share with the public their version of events."

The article has since been removed from the newspaper's website "for legal reasons".

..because it was easily discredited bullshit.

Hillary Clinton On Putin's "Three Dimensional Chess": "They Wanted To Get Me Out Of The Way"

This is what two years of 24/7 media 'Russiagate' hysteria and the relentless pursuit of a "narrative" have brought us. And where better for Clinton to speak of the grand Russian conspiracy that shook the very foundations of the Republic than Queen Conspiracy Theorist Rachel I-see-a-Russia-Connection-Lurking-Behind-Every-Corner Maddow?

Who would have thought there was really no need for a whole book penned by Hillary over why she lost called What Happened?... Well she did just write a new Afterward wherein she questions the "legitimacy of our elections".

And here it is — the peak 'Russiagate' moment for the history books...

"I think I was an obstacle to [Russia's] plans to undermine and disrupt our democracy. I think I was an obstacle to impose greater authoritarian control in Russia... I think they wanted to get me out of the way," Clinton told Maddow in the Tuesday night interview.

"I'm the victim! I'm the victim! I'm the victim! Feel sorry for me!!!" -- Hitlery

I do wish she would just shut up.
