Insanity Unbound: Infowars Characterizes "Dancing Israelis" Arrested in New Jersey on 9/11/01 as Arab MUSLIMS

I've had about enough of this propaganda of "Muslims cheering for 9/11." It has gotten to the level of insane propaganda. Infowars.com was giddy after Donald Trump tweeted one of their articles, which was not even original Infowars content, but rather a re-post from Bizpac Review titled 'I Live In Jersey And Trump Is Right: Muslims DID Celebrate On 9/11 In NJ - We Saw It!' The author uses a quote from a Sept. 18, 2001 Washington Post article to verify her claims. However, the interesting thing is that the Washington Post picked up on this and has posted their own extremely thorough and lengthy rebuttal of the author's claims. Since the Post's own story was used as alleged 'proof' of the Muslims cheering, they took quite a bit of time and detail to debunk the myth that "thousands of Muslims were cheering."

Meet the man who funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, the son of Turkey’s President

The West Wants Turkey Out

The members of NATO fear that the “impulsive actions” of Turkey’s President will force them into a new major conflict, and NATO is not prepared to fight it yet. These “impulsive actions” may trigger the response that is required by Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty. No wonder Hollande, while declaring war against ISIL, made no reference of Article 5, by quoting the EU Lisbon Treaty instead.

War With Russia to Defend ISIS? Gee, Okay...

The Pentagon thinks it can win a war with Russia. Seriously. They do. Because even if it goes nuclear, as long as we wipe them out and we’ve got a handful of bureaucrats and generals alive in their fuehrerbunkers, we won! Hooray!

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Guest Column From George Abert, Formerly Of Air Force Intelligence

Why did Turkey shoot down a Russian Air Force jet?

Turkey is so militarily inferior to Russia that it is unlikely Turkey would commit an act of war against Russia without encouragement from Washington. We might think that Turkey would feel shielded by NATO, but it is doubtful that many European members of NATO would risk nuclear annihiliation by going to war with Russia in order to save Turkey from the consequences of such a reckless and irresponsible act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft and lying about it. Turkey has issued no apology and no believable explanation. Unless Erdogan has lost his mind, Washington is behind the shootdown, and the reason is Washington’s desperation to decode the new Russian technology that gives Russian forces total control over a battlefield, whether on land, sea, or air.

Breaking: Russian Pilot Rescued by Iran’s General Soleimani

Soleimani promised them to return the Russian pilot safe and sound; a promise that was kept in the end, according to the Syrian officer.

After tracing the place of the Russian pilot using his GPS, it was revealed that the pilot was being kept in a place 6km behind the frontline of the clashes between the Syrian army and the opposition.

Six fighters of Hezbollah’s special operation unit and 18 Syrian commandos approached the frontline to carry out the operations and the Russian air force and helicopters concurrently created hellfire in the region and destroyed the terrorists’ headquarters in a way that most of the enemy forces deployed in the region fled the scene and the ground was paved for the special unit’s advance.

The Syrian officer added that every move of the special units was monitored and covered precisely by the Russian satellites in a way that the slightest moves made 100 meters away from the area of operation was reported to them and every moment of the operation was reported to a very high-raking official in the Kremlin (that he thinks was president Putin) and it was clear that he was monitoring the entire operations through satellites from Moscow.

Global Thanksgiving only possible with .01% removed from power over endless wars, 99.99%’s debt-slavery, media lies; it begins with your voice

9 minutes from Tragedy & Hope:

I’m all for being thankful for well-being at the scales of individual, family, friends, organizations, and small-scale communities, and recommend the practice of gratitude and love.

I’m also aware that large-scale communities can only be thankful in any objective measure when the current .01% “leaders” are removed from power for obvious crimes:

Unlawful and lie-began wars.
Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995.
So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt.
Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
“Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.

Volkswagen & Others Cheat Because Regulators Are Toothless and Worse

It’s not just Volkswagen and it’s not just motor manufacturers. The same sort of behaviour can be seen in many other industries -- and of course in the banks as well.

A common feature is the weakness of the regulators. The EPA should be ashamed that it was not they but a small NGO that discovered what Volkswagen were up to. Where was the EPA when this was going on? They seem to have seen their role as purely bureaucratic: the manufacturer would have its vehicles tested at a testing station of their own choosing and pass the numbers to the EPA who would tick an appropriate box. Had the EPA been doing the tests themselves, someone might have wondered about the results just as John German of the ICCT did [1].

From Zundel to Topham: Zionist theatre

The trials of Arthur Topham, Canadian journalist and publisher of Radical Press, for "hate crime" (2007) and "hate propaganda" (2012) under new Criminal Code “Hate Propaganda” legislation, have resulted in exactly the opposite of what the prosecution, B'Nai Brith, wanted. Instead of quietly muzzling the gadfly critic, the result has been the highlighting of past Jewish hate crimes, and the increasing control by Zionist groups of Canadian politics to promote Israel and censor anti-Zionist criticism.

Bad Ass of The Week:Yosuf Alchagirov

November 1, 2013 would be unlike any of the previous 29,200+ days of Yusuf Alchagirov's life.

Today he was going to find himself locked in hand-to-hand combat with a pissed-off 1,000-pound Grizzly Bear armed with razor-sharp six-inch claws the size of kitchen knives and teeth specifically designed for crunching bone and disemboweling the meaty parts of organic life forms.

Yusuf Alchagirov had already had enough of this bear bullshit. The 80 year-old man froze for a second, staring unblinkingly into the predatory eyes of a voracious, man-eating, half-ton killing machine that was preparing to massacre and devour him in a flurry of spikes and gore. Only one thought passed through his mind:

I'm going to fuck this thing up and wear his balls as a hat.

Donald Sutherland 42-second video: Hunger Games is allegory to warn young people: ‘blind faith in US leaders gets you dead’

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: MarkAlzano, Zen Gardener

The Hunger Games film series is popular because its message resonates with many people: psychopathic .01% “leaders” staging children to kill each other with Orwellian rhetoric that such child deaths “bring peace” to society. The richest sector uses 90% of the population as work animals they keep in poverty, under surveillance, and always under armed guards.

Donald Sutherland plays the .01% “leader,” President Snow, who praises the annual child sacrifices as necessary. In this 42-second video, Sutherland is clear about the message of The Hunger Games:

“It is the ‘powers that be’ in the United States of America” that President Snow’s unlawful Orwellian oligarchy represents.
“War is for profit. It’s not to ‘save the world for democracy,’... no, bullshit. It’s for the profit.”
“The young people who will see this film must recognize... that blind faith in their leaders will get you dead.”

2-minute video: Real Muslim leaders laugh at religious fanatics; ‘former’ colonial empire .01% today only demonize Muslims for re-colonialism, and won’t stop until arrested for OBVIOUS War Crimes

bigotry: habitual state of mind with obstinate, irrational, and/or unfair intolerance of ideas, ethnicities, or beliefs different from one’s own. Etymology: “religious hypocrite.”

Anyone familiar with ordinary Muslim families are horrified, disgusted, and motivated to set the record straight from the bigotry of “former” colonial .01% “leaders” and their corporate media (here, here, here). The ongoing Emperor’s New Clothes lies to demonize and blame the victims of colonialism are easy to prove with the facts of the “former” empire nations’ crimes:

Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995.

Human resources: Walmart hired Lockheed Martin to keep tabs on employees

Walmart hired global security giant Lockheed Martin a few years ago to monitor activism in its massive workforce, according to new documents. The defense contractor tracked employees’ social media and reported protest participation to the retail giant.

Lockheed Martin, the world’s largest defense contractor, provided Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, with intelligence-gathering and surveillance services in 2012, according to a lengthy report by Bloomberg Businessweek. The news has emerged just before Black Friday protests by a union-funded group called OUR Walmart, the report claims. Participants demand higher wages and reliable scheduling for Walmart employees.

France Moves to Make “Conspiracy Theories” Illegal by Government Decree

Political elites and super-bureaucrats are worried. It’s becoming harder to control consensus reality.

A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries.

Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.

Prisoner is released after 44 YEARS - and left totally bewildered by technology. Man who tried to kill a cop assumes anyone with earbuds is in the CIA... and don't even mention iPhones

A man who was sent to prison in the 1970s is sharing details about his startling re-entry into modern society, having been locked away for 44 years of his life.

Otis Johnson was 25 when he went to prison for the attempted murder of a police officer, and was just released last summer at the age of 69.

The newly-free senior let an Al Jazeera English camera crew follow him around New York, where he's had to adjust many things that Americans take for granted, like endless food options, technology, and exponentially higher prices.

Tamiflu shown to cause abnormal behavior and hallucinations

Tamiflu presents itself with millions of reported side effects which include long-term neuropsychiatric adverse reactions – especially in boys aged 10 to 19 years old.
Nearly 250,000 neuropsychiatric cases from Tamiflu have been reported
A very large study recently published in the Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin examined the side effects of oseltamivir and its neuropsychiatric adverse effects (NPAEs). Information was taken from the United States Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Report System (FAERS).
After weeding out duplication or reports that didn’t include age or gender, nearly a quarter million NPAE cases were determined with the use of oseltamivir. NPAEs included:
Disturbances in conscious Deliria – delirium
Perception disturbances – hallucinations and delusional perceptions
Narcolepsy and associated conditions – hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations
Delusional symptoms
Seizures and seizure disorders (convulsions)
Anxiety symptoms (agitation)

‘Le Blog De Resistance‘ is a popular French-language alternative news source with over 10 million hits and thousands of regular subscribers. The author, who calls himself Z, has been in panic mode since a state of emergency was called after the Paris attacks. This high-level alert was extended for three months, along with a pro-war propaganda campaign and the media under strict orders to terrify the population like never before.

While chaos continued outside, the French Government locked themselves away to discuss new legislation which would affect the alternative media in a very negative way. Today, Z’s greatest fear was realized, and he writes:

Our democracy is completely unrepresentative: Citizens United, gerrymandering, and the real story behind the GOP’s takeover

That word sits uncomfortably within American politics today. In one sense, it is perfectly uncontroversial: No one defends race discrimination, or sex discrimination, or at least no one defends them openly anymore. And almost no one defends sexual orientation discrimination— and amazingly so, given how quickly attitudes on that equality have changed. In this sense, we are all egalitarians, Republicans and Democrats alike. In this sense, at least, we all believe in “equality.”

Emails: CNN Reporter Coordinated With Hillary Aide To Smear Rand Paul During 2013 Benghazi Hearing

A CNN reporter who was recently suspended for two weeks for violating the network’s editorial guidelines showed up in a new trove of State Department emails released on Tuesday in which she appears to have coordinated social media posts with a top Hillary Clinton State Department aide during the former secretary of state’s Jan. 23, 2013 Senate testimony about the Benghazi attacks.

The emails, which were released to the website Gawker, show that Elise Labott, a foreign affairs reporter at CNN, took guidance from Clinton aide Philippe Reines by posting a tweet criticizing Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul for asking Clinton tough questions during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Labott also coordinated with Reines to post a favorable quote from Clinton’s testimony, which she gave just a week before she left office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please understand; this is not a "one-off" indulgence in immoral and unethical behaviour for Hillary Clinton: what you see here is standard, operating procedure for this person.

IF what you want in your next President is someone with all the morals of a dead tree stump, a geopolitical uber-interventionist, and a hyper-warmonger-in-chief, by all means, vote for Clinton.

Rahm Emanuel’s Learning What Happens When You Ignore Half Of The City

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel is facing mounting criticism from activists and allies of the black community who say he should be held accountable for delaying justice in the case of Laquan McDonald, a teenager who died 13 months ago after being shot 16 times by a Chicago police officer.

A court order forced Chicago city officials to release squad car video of the gruesome death, which they did on Tuesday, hours after the Cook County State's Attorney's office charged Officer Jason Van Dyke with first-degree murder in the teen's killing. Viewers were outraged by how much the footage conflicted with the police department's initial account of the shooting, which claimed that McDonald was acting strangely and lunged at police before shots were fired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That deep, long-lasting flushing sound you hear is that of Rahm Emanuel's future political career, which is about to end, slowly, and painfully, by any obstructions he ordered in this case.

Were I a Chicago resident, I would not look at going out at all for "Black Friday". As reported at the Washington Times this morning:

Small groups of demonstrators gathered throughout the day Wednesday to protest the death of a black teen shot 16 times by a white police officer, and they urged supporters to join them in trying to shut down Chicago’s famous Michigan Avenue shopping district during the Black Friday shopping bonanza. About two dozen protesters gathered outside Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office a day after authorities released the graphic video, footage that President Barack Obama said “deeply disturbed” him. The video shows officer Jason Van Dyke, who was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder, firing an entire magazine into 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The protesters held banners showing photos of other black people fatally shot by police in Chicago and elsewhere. Several said they were parents of black men killed by Chicago officers. “You cannot kill our children and expect us to be quiet any longer,” protester Quovadis Green said. “It is unacceptable.” Activist Mark Carter called on people to “rise up” and shut down the Magnificent Mile shopping area on Friday. Protesters also planned to target the Board of Trade and other landmarks in the coming

I would hope and pray that the protest is peaceful. But understanding the history of Chicago police, coupled with the reality that race riots, "spontaneously" erupting around the country, would give this administration the "justification" to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and impose martial law, I would not bet on that.

New dashcam video shows SUV-driving cop chasing down fleeing Laquan seconds before he shot him 16 times - as Obama says he's 'disturbed' by the killing and Chicago is rocked by protests again

A new dashcam video shows Chicago cop Jason Van Dyke in pursuit of Laquan McDonald for 30 seconds before he fatally shot the teenager.

The footage is taken from the white officer's police car as he pulled through a Burger King parking lot and McDonald, 17, bounded out in front of him before running down the road. It appears he is carrying a knife in his hand at the time.

Soon after this, Van Dyke emptied an entire magazine into the young man with most of the 16 shots fired at point-blank range as he lay motionless on the ground. He was charged with first-degree murder on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stay cool, people. The government would love nothing better than nationwide race riots, to justify a National Emergency and tossing what remains of the Bill of Rights into the shredder!

Frankly, the fact that the video is blurred makes it suspect. You can;t actually see what happened, you are supposed to take the police' word for it.

This Is Why Misty Copeland Embraces Being Labeled A Black Ballerina

Misty Copeland is a black ballerina, and she doesn't want you to call her anything different.

The dancer, who was named the first black female principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre, sat down with HuffPost Live on Monday and explained why she proudly embraces being called a black ballerina.

"[I embrace the title] because it's so rare and because it's an issue and because it's been my path and my struggle. I'm not going to deny or pretend that that's not who I am," Copeland told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani. "And I think that just because I'm now in this position as a principal dancer doesn't mean all of a sudden I'm going to drop the fact that I've had all of these obstacles and so many are continuing to have it. Just because I'm here doesn't mean racism goes away in the ballet world."

While Copeland said that her colleagues at American Ballet Theatre have been "nothing but supportive," disparaging comments from the depths of the Internet still get to her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the success story of this woman, because it is powerful and wonderful.

This woman not only dances exquisitely; she also mentors young ballerinas, and in that way, insures that she, and her example of what is possible, even if you were not born with the proverbial "silver spoon" in your mouth, touches future generations in the most positive way possible.

Bravo, Ms. Copeland: well done, on all fronts!!

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Turkey Must Pay for the Crime Against the Russian Aircraft

Instead of immediately apologising to Moscow for the Turkish Air Force downing the Russian SU-24 being part of the Russian Air Force group from the Hmeymim base, whose war with IS terrorists and other terrorist groups on Syrian territory is not just empty words, but real action, Ankara was quick to come out with offensive attacks against Russia. And for some reason, it then went on to demand that the NATO Council convene, although not only wasn’t Turkey attacked, but rather itself committed an act of aggression. It is impossible to differently interpret the attack on the plane of the anti-terrorist coalition performing the mission to destroy terrorist locations in Syria. Moreover, the Turkish F-16 did it when the SU-24 was in Syrian airspace.

Turkey Downs Russian Fighter to Draw NATO and US Deeper into Syrian Quagmire

On Tuesday, Turkey shot down a Russian warplane that was carrying out military operations against jihadi groups in Northern Syria. The downing of the Su-24 fighter jet is part of a broader plan by the administration of Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan to topple the secular government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and to establish “safe zones” on the Syrian side of the Turkish-Syrian border. Erdogan needs the safe zones to provide a sanctuary for the militant extremists who are the footsoldiers in his war against Syria.
