Domestic US Propaganda: CIA helped make Zero Dark Thirty

WATCH: How the CIA Helped Make “Zero Dark Thirty” Behind the scenes, the CIA secretly worked with the filmmakers, and the movie portrayed the agency’s controversial “enhanced interrogation techniques” — widely described as torture — as a key to uncovering information that led to the finding and killing of bin Laden.
Secrets, Politics and Torture airs Tuesday, May 19 at 10 p.m. EST on PBS (check local listings) and will stream in full, for free, online at pbs.org/frontline.

But in Secrets, Politics and Torture, premiering this Tuesday, May 19 on PBS, FRONTLINE reveals the many challenges to that narrative, and the inside story of how it came to be.

This was Sony Music's contract with Spotify

In section 4(a), Spotify agrees to pay a $25 million advance for the two years of the contract: $9 million the first year and $16 million the second, with a $17.5 million advance for the optional third year to Sony Music. The contract stipulates that the advance must be paid in installments every three months, but Spotify can recoup this money if it earns over that amount in the corresponding contract year.

But what the contract doesn’t stipulate is what Sony Music can and will do with the advance money. Does it go into a pot to be divided between Sony Music’s artists, or does the label keep it to itself? According to a music industry source, labels routinely keep advances for themselves.

Feeling Trapped in a Dead-End System? Cartoonist Stephanie McMillan's Affirmations Encourage Resistance

Activists and organizers for social change undoubtedly experience periods of burnout. Working long hours – typically without pay and little appreciation – on campaigns, issues and causes where victories are few and far between can be demoralizing. Some activists get so frustrated with the perceived lack of results from their hard work, the divisions within the Left and the rampant apathy among the general public that they give up entirely and retreat from activism.

Christie’s $1 billion week: Art market heads for the stratosphere

The week ending May 15 was a banner one for the high-end art market. Christie’s auction house alone set a new record, breaking the $1 billion ceiling for a single week’s sales. Since the opening of the 2015 auction season in sales of post-war, Impressionist and contemporary art at the beginning of May, the leading New York art auction houses, Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Phillips, have sold over $2.7 billion worth of art.

Roger Waters to Dionne Warwick: “You are showing yourself to be profoundly ignorant of what has happened in Palestine since 1947?

First, in my view, Dionne Warwick is a truly great singer. Secondly, I doubt not that she is deeply committed to her family and her fans.

But, ultimately, this whole conversation is not about her, her gig in Tel Aviv, or even her conception of boundaries and art, though I will touch on that conception later. This is about human rights and, more specifically, this is about the dystopia that can develop, as it has in Israel, when society lacks basic belief in equal human value, when it strays from the ability to feel empathy for our brothers and sisters of different faiths, nationalities, creeds or colors.

It strikes me as deeply disingenuous of Ms. Warwick to try to cast herself as a potential victim here. The victims are the occupied people of Palestine with no right to vote and the unequal Palestinian citizens of Israel, including Bedouin Israeli citizens of the village of al-Araqib, which has now been bulldozed 83 times by order of the Israeli government.

NATO Members Drunkenly Sing “We Are the World” (Not Satire)

Have you ever wondered what NATO is up to when they’re not busy overthrowing pesky governments, absorbing post Soviet nations, drone striking terrified villagers, or funding false flag terror plots? I mean, they’re human just like the rest of us right? Surely they need to take a break from their murderous campaigns from time to time. Sometimes they just need to take a step back from it all, put their arms around each other and just sing, you know?

Pressure from above, pressure from below

Listen real close People! Simple and Concise!They have been using these tactics against the People forever.

Using the opposition to get your way
How it works...

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

Collectivists Hate Individuality, Tribalism And ''Fast And Furious 7''?

By Brandon Smith

Sometimes in the liberty movement — with discussions of potential collapse, war, revolution, social destabilization, etc. — it is easy to get so caught up in the peripheral conflict between the elites and the citizenry that we forget what the whole thing is really about. That is to say, we tend to overlook the very core of the conflict that is shaping our epoch...

American gladiators: How ‘The Running Man’ is our reality

Cheesy 80s dystopian films constitute some of the best cinematic predictive programming, and 1987’s The Running Man is a fine specimen. Full of Schawrzenegger’s grunts and “aagghhhs” (as opposed to a script), even Bloodsport has a contender for wooden acting and silly fight choreography with Running Man.

"However, I don't — what I want to make sure is, I don't want to use my platform (the wrong way). I feel like there's some people who become prominent, and then it's out in the foreign press. You know, shit on Israel. I do not. I don't want to do that."

Six Prophetic Sci-Fi Novels That Predicted Our Strange Future

It’s rather sobering to look back at novels like 1984 and compare it to the sprawling surveillance state we now live under, or read Brave New World and bear witness to our drug addled society, many years before it came to pass. But those books are just the tip of the iceberg. The science fiction genre is rife with imaginative stories that predicted the future, sometimes in baffling ways. In other cases, they proved to be so influential as to inspire others to bring their predictions to life.

Great article and links for newbies and alternative news vets alike!

The New World Order is upon us. As amazing as it may seem, we are living in the Last Days. The world is quickly uniting into a One World government, economy, religion and cashless society; under the control of The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR), the United Nations (UN), The International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission. All of these visible organizations are the vehicles by which the Illuminati control the world.

Here is an excellent explanation from eye-opening author Henry Makow concerning who the Illuminati are . . .

A family operation: How The Godfather trilogy details real conspiracies

Based on Mario Puzzo’s novel of the same name, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather is known as one of the greatest films in cinematic history. Though the third installment has noticeably lower critical ratings, the trilogy as a whole is worthy viewing, but for JaysAnalysis, we will be taking a different route. Not only is the trilogy an enjoyable aesthetic experience, reviewing the series of late, I was surprised to see so many parallels to real-life conspiracies, assassinations, skullduggery and deep state agendas I’ve researched the last decade.

Leaked emails expose Sony concern over report its cameras used in Gaza attack

Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chair Amy Pascal was proud to add her name to a letter with some 200 other Hollywood big wigs supporting Israel last summer in the midst of its bombardment of the occupied Gaza Strip.

But leaked emails released recently by Wikileaks show that behind the scenes company executives were worried about reports associating the Sony brand with the Israeli assault that left more than 2,200 people, 547 of them children, dead.

On 19 August, Stevan Bernard, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s head of corporate security wrote to David Diamond, executive assistant to company chairman and CEO Michael Lynton, to inform him about a media report “that Sony CCTV’s [sic] were being used as a part of the guidance system for Israeli rockets that were bombing Gaza.”

“In fact,” Bernard wrote, “they held up part of the camera housing for all to see.”

The Imitation Game

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as I am descending into doing movie reviews today, I feel I should mention "The Imitation Game" because I plan to talk about it on today's radio show. The film is about the life of Allen Turing, the brilliant mathematician who built the machine which cracked German's ENIGMA code for the allies, and how he was cruelly treated by UK law for being a homosexual afterwards, driving him to suicide at the age of 41. Benedict Cumberpatch does a great job of portraying Turing, even down to the recognizable traces of Asperger's Syndrome which many have concluded Turing suffered from. Worth a watch.

BIG EYES MOVIE

A drama about the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I watched this film last night. To be very honest, I had been unaware of how Marget was the real artist behind the big eyes phenomenon when I was young, even though the case was finally resolved here in Hawaii. Being an ardent supporter of my own wife's creative endeavors I actually got angry with the character of the husband and how he could do what he did, as well as why it took so long for Margaret to stand up for herself.

But what is really notable about the film is that Tim Burton, whose prior work tended to be out on the fringe with "Edward Scissorhands", "Dark Shadows", etc. did a great job in telling this straight drama. There were only a few moments when Tim Burton went back to his "safe zone" in terms of style.

That says a hell of a lot about us, and our darkest fears and desires.

Darwin Weeps: Warning Labels and Technology Render the Survival Mindset Obsolete

Sometimes, warning labels concern me.

I mean, who inspired the label on blow dryers that points out the device should not be used in the shower? And what would even be the point, barring electrocution? Why would you dry your hair while the water is spraying you?

And are there actually people who need to be cautioned not to light a candle until they remove it from the package?

Also, you know those plastic bags that hold clothing when you order it online? Who needs to be offered the sage advice that it’s not a good idea to put said bag over their head?

Maybe, with all of these warning labels, we’re rendering Darwin’s principle of natural selection invalid.

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is accused of groping a 22-year-old Italian model he met at the red-carpet premiere of his Radio City “New York Spring Spectacular.”
