The daily headlines are getting more mind-boggling by the day. One thing they all have in common, besides being a complete affront to the senses and spirit;
They’re all f**ing backwards.
They’re complete reversals of not only previously established facts, but what your heart and even common sense are telling you. These ongoing, in your face, assumptive and arrogant lies against humanity are almost beyond comprehension.
What is most appalling is the brash magnitude of the barrage. We’re being played for idiots.
Know what’s more freaky? They know if they repeat it often enough and don’t back down they’ll succeed. The masses will open their mouths and swallow it.
The Lies of Omission Are Some of the Worst
I feel like I’m running around a trauma ward sometimes telling the patients “Don’t go to sleep! Don’t go to sleep!” like doctors tell shocked trauma victims so they can know their full symptoms and keep some sort of conscious control over them while they assess their situation.
Only in this case it’s a media drug overdose that is leading to mental and spiritual paralysis.
And while the barrage of poisonous information has become more overwhelming, what’s even more nefarious is what is NOT mentioned, giving the listener or viewer a distinct message that either something does not exist, or at the least that it’s not worth addressing.
This is at the root of the most heinous crimes against humanity ever perpetrated. They may allow a moment of questioning in the media to give you the impression it’s been discussed somewhere by somebody, but then it’s lights out for any further discussion. Period.
And how do you know that? The subject never comes up again. Continue Reading

The plans of the 1915-23 Armenian Genocide, where a million and half Armenians perished in a barbaric way in their ancestral lands in modern Turkey, actually were drawn up and were in place by the year 1910 or 1912.
There is the book “Inner Folds of the Ottoman Revolution” written by Mevlan Zadeh Rifat in Turkish and published in 1929, the author, a pro-sultan Turk, claims that the “Armenian genocide was decided in August 1910 and October 1911, by a Young Turk committee composed entirely of displaced Balkan Jews in the format of a syncretist Jewish-Muslim sect which included Talaat, Enver, Behaeddin Shakir, Jemal, and Nizam posting as Muslims. It met in the Rothschild-funded Grand Orient loge/hotel of Salonika.” Syncretism means a combination of different forms of belief or practice; masonism fits that description. As the masons started the 1897 revolution in France with the cry “liberty, fraternity, equality,” Young Turks used the same slogan in their revolution of 1908.
A 1994 conference paper/lecture by Joseph Brewda of Schiller Institute entitled “Palmerson launches Young Turks to permanently control Middle East ” claims the founder of the Young Turks to be a certain Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carasso. He states: “Carasso set up the Young Turk secret society in the 1890s in Salonika, then part of Turkey, and now part of Greece. Carasso was also the grand master of an Italian masonic lodge there, called ‘Macedonia Resurrected.’ The lodge was the headquarters of the Young Turks, and all the top Young Turk leadership were members.” Continue Reading
WASHINGTON (AP) — Three months ago, one of the CIA’s most experienced clandestine operatives started work inside the New York Police Department. His title is special assistant to the deputy commissioner of intelligence. On that much, everyone agrees.
Exactly what he’s doing there, however, is much less clear.
Since The Associated Press revealed the assignment in August, federal and city officials have offered differing explanations for why this CIA officer — a seasoned operative who handled foreign agents and ran complex operations in Jordan and Pakistan — was assigned to a municipal police department. The CIA is prohibited from spying domestically, and its unusual partnership with the NYPD has troubled top lawmakers and prompted an internal investigation.
His role is important because the last time a CIA officer worked so closely with the NYPD, beginning in the months after the 9/11 attacks, he became the architect of aggressive police programs that monitored Muslim neighborhoods. With the earlier help from this CIA official, the police put entire communities under the microscope based on ethnicity rather allegations of wrongdoing, according to the AP investigation.
It was the Scottish poet Robert Burns who, in a 1786 poem, wrote “O would some power the gift to give us to see ourselves as others see us, it would from many a blunder free us.” That gift is now ours in the form of modern polling technology but, alas, Burns underestimated our abilities to turn a blind eye to its revelations and continue our blundering ways. Here is a recent example.
The respected polling company Zogby International recently conducted one of its periodic “Arab Attitudes” polls measuring, among other things, the popularity of the United States in the Arab Middle East. This one was conducted between the middle of May and the middle of June, 2011 and involved 4,000 face-to-face interviews in six countries: Morocco, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. The results are not pretty. As reported by Al Jazeera, “The United States’ popularity in the Arab world has plummeted to levels lower than the last year of the George W. Bush administration.” The best the U.S. and the Obama administration could do was a 23% approval rating in Lebanon. In Egypt the approval rating was but 5%, which constituted a 30 % fall from the last survey two years ago. Continue Reading
In a chilling sign of what is sure to become more widespread, three of the Newburgh 4 — a group of Muslim ex-convicts and American citizens — were sentenced to 25 years in prison even after it was exposed that the government manufactured the threat, and entrapped the men into their participation in a false terror plot.
Welcome to counterterrorism operations inside the United States.
The case against the Newburgh 4 actually began to fall apart back in the middle of 2010 after White Plains, NY federal judge Colleen McMahon excoriated prosecutors for covering up evidence that the plot to bomb a Bronx synagogue and a Jewish community center, as well as to shoot down military planes at Stewart International airport was a “plot” by an FBI agent to entrap the four men. She asked a rhetorical question:
Did the government locate some disaffected individuals, manufacture a phony terrorist plot that the individuals would (and could) never have dreamed up or carried out on their own, and then wrongfully induce them to participate in it? (Source)
No matter, in a supreme act of cowardice, she gave the most “lenient” sentence available to her without having the case overturned. The ruling is a clear indication that the failure of any one of these patsy-driven cases threatens to bring down the new system of using entrapment to further counterterrorism efforts in the United States.

Two Muslim religious leaders were asked to leave a commercial plane in Memphis and were told it was because the pilot refused to fly with them aboard.

The two men had been on the way to a conference on Islamophobia on Friday.
Masudur Rahman, a professor of Arabic at the University of Memphis, and Mohamed Zaghloul, Imam at the Islamic Association of Greater Memphis, were asked to deplane Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight 5452 from Memphis to Charlotte. Mr Rahman said they were subjected to additional security checks after the plane had left the gate.
After additional screening, the two men were cleared by Delta representatives to reboard the plane, but were then told the pilot would not take them.
Atlantic Southeast Airlines, a regional partner operating as a Delta Connection, apologised for any inconvenience caused, but offered no further explanation.
The flight “returned to the gate to allow for additional screening of a passenger and the passenger’s companion. We take security and safety very seriously, and the event is currently under investigation,” an airline statement said.
