It's time to rid ourselves of the two party system

Posts tagged “CNN

The last 5 Presidents in a row have bombed Iraq, killing, maiming and starving hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Dare you ask why they hate us?

Who is to blame for the current state of chaos in Iraq? An oversimplified and misguided, if not dishonest course of action would be to blame Iraqis for being the radical, death-cult worshiping fanatics they are and ignore America’s foreign policy decision-making, which led to the current situation. In turn, one could place Iraq on a travel ban list of nations that doesn’t include any of the countries that created and support al-Qaeda (and then nonsensically remove them from your revised list some weeks later).

Of course, a more honest and fruitful venture would be to examine the events that led to the current situation engulfing Iraq. As American airstrikes continue to massacre the Iraqi civilian population by the hundreds, we owe it to the Iraqi people to get to the bottom of this story. From there, we could ostensibly create a future path that might bring peace to the war-torn nation as opposed to blindly continuing the same policies Iraq has been victim to for decades.

In the early 1900s, the British drew up artificial boundaries for Iraq and forced diverse groups in a sectarian society to identify themselves under one nation. The tactic was part of a wider divide and conquer strategy the British employed throughout the region. According to the New York Times, the CIA actively supported Saddam Hussein’s initial rise to power in the 1960s by staging a coup in a bid to undermine the “threat” of Abdel Karim Kassem, who had grown too assertive for Washington’s liking.

U.S support for Hussein continued for decades as the U.S. heavily backed Iraq’s war of aggression against neighboring Iran, even though the U.S. knew he was using chemical weapons. The U.S. also secretly armed the Iranians at the same time to maximize the death toll (the war cost well over one million Iraqi and Iranian lives). The U.S. was even trying to convince Hussein to attack the Assad regime in Syria even though they knew Hussein was, at the time, “fighting for his life” in the Iran-Iraq war.

Following this brutal war, the U.S. duped Hussein into thinking they had given him the green light to invade Kuwait. As soon as Hussein invaded Kuwait, the U.S. almost immediately turned its back on him and began a P.R. campaign that would eventually lead to an invasion on Iraqi soil. In 1994, when Dick Cheney was asked if U.S. forces should have gone all the way to Baghdad. He responded with a resolute “no,” before adding further:

… if we’d gone to Baghdad, we would have been all alone. There wouldn’t have been anybody else with us. There would have been a US occupation of Iraq. None of the Arab forces that were willing to fight with us in Kuwait were willing to invade Iraq. Once you got to Iraq and took it over, took down Saddam Hussein’s government, then what are you going to put in its place? That’s a very volatile part of the world, and if you take down the central government of Iraq, you could very easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off. Part of it the Syrians would like to have, the west. Part of eastern Iraq the Iranians would like to claim. Fought over for eight years. In the north, you’ve got the Kurds. And if the Kurds spin loose and join with Kurds in Turkey, then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It’s a quagmire if you go that far and try to take over Iraq.

Let that sink in for a moment: The man who unleashed chaos in Iraq in 2003 knew exactly why it would be dangerous to do so a decade prior. Following the first U.S. invasion of Iraq, the U.S. slapped economic sanctions on Iraq that reportedly killed over 500,000 Iraqi children. The U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Denis Halliday, resigned in protest, stating:

Four thousand to five thousand children are dying unnecessarily every month due to the impact of sanctions because of the breakdown of water and sanitation, inadequate diet and the bad internal health situation.

As if Iraq hadn’t suffered enough, the U.S. decided to invade again in 2003, only this time, they ousted Saddam Hussein and his entire government, capitalizing on American fears after 9/11 to attack a country that had nothing to do with the terror attacks.

It is worth noting that the Project for the New American Century, an organization of which Cheney was also a member, released a document in 2001 entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century.” This document called for massive increases in U.S. military spending and a much more aggressive foreign policy agenda in order to expand America’s dominance worldwide. Unsurprisingly, Iraq is featured heavily in this document.

In March 2003, the U.S. began its “Shock and Awe” bombing campaign “on a scale that indicate[d] to Iraqis” that Saddam and his leadership were finished, according to then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, as reported by CNN.

Shortly after, Paul Bremer, leader of the Coalition Provisional Authority and U.S. Presidential Envoy and Administrator in Iraq, fired close to 400,000 servicemen simply because they were part of Saddam Hussein’s Baathist party. This was perhaps the single largest blunder of the 2003 invasion (if it is possible to pinpoint one in particular) because this directly led to the rise of ISIS. In May 2015, Time Magazine ran an article entitled “How Disbanding the Iraqi Army Fueled ISIS.” This is hardly a conspiracy theory.

As is quite clear, ISIS and the various other terrorist groups that were able to establish a foothold in Iraq following the U.S. invasion have been wreaking havoc and mayhem across the country. As Ben Swann, an investigative journalist and outspoken critic of U.S. foreign policy, stated quite astutely:

Before the 2003 U.S. invasion, do you know how many suicide attacks there were in Iraq? None. In the country’s history there had never been one. But since the 2003 invasion, there have been 1,892.

Donald J. Trump is the fifth straight president in succession to bomb Iraq. Ask yourself: as an American, or any other Westerner for that matter, what has Iraq as a nation, or any Iraqi ever, done to you? What has Iraq done to the world to deserve this treatment? And what is the connection between relentlessly bombing a country for decades, and crippling its economy – and its liberation? Can anyone explain at what stage, since the early 1900s, Iraq has been liberated by anyone?

Trump supporters and his media mouthpieces can spout anti-Islamic rhetoric as much as they like, but it is a truly intellectually dishonest position to focus solely on the region’s religion and not on the actual events that led to the chaos we are seeing unfolding right now. There are many majority-Muslim countries that are actually tourism hotspots, so surely there is something in particular about Iraq’s situation that makes it such a hotbed of violence and terrorism.

And it is as important now as ever to examine these underlying events and causes considering the U.S. air campaign in Iraq is radically intensifying.

Mainstream Media’s accusation of Russian/Trump collaboration is “fake news” even by their own standards.

Claire Bernish, February 15, 2017

Corporate media pulled off the previously impossible yet again in reports from the New York Times and CNN claiming aides and associates of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign maintained close contact with Russia throughout his campaign — but the accusatory tone of the report simply isn’t backed by evidence.

“Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials,” the Times reported Tuesday, adding, “it is not unusual for American businessmen to come in contact with foreign intelligence officials, sometimes unwittingly, in countries like Russia and Ukraine, where the spy services are deeply embedded in society.”

And, even further to the point, “It is also unclear whether the conversations had anything to do with Mr. Trump himself.”

Liar, Liar, newsroom on fire.

CNN adds, “Both the frequency of the communications during early summer and the proximity to Trump of those involved ‘raised a red flag’ with US intelligence and law enforcement, according to these officials. The communications were intercepted during routine intelligence collection targeting Russian officials and other Russian nationals known to US intelligence.”

Incidentally, CNN notes, “The communications were gathered as part of routine US intelligence collection and not because people close to Trump were being targeted.”

Notice the stultifying ambiguity — so typical of similar mainstream media reports on other topics without basis — where unnamed officials cite alleged reports unavailable for the public and press to vet; and bluster replaces solid evidence.

 

Wolf Blitzer, a German-born American journalist who is a senior anchor for CNN’s “Situation Room” program. If you study his method of “interrogation’ he does his very best to make what he considers to be politically incorrect politicians and advocates look like buffoons. Professional? No. Objective? No. Paid off? Yes.

Each outlet casts sufficient doubt on their reports as to make one wonder how editors at the New York Times and CNN gave their publication the green light — that is, until further examination reveals the actual motivation for doing so.

After all, this is not journalism. This is propaganda.

Fake news at its most manipulative — reigniting Americans’ fears from the last Cold War to ensure a constant state of suspicion, bolster the case for continued stockpiling of military weapons (guess who makes money here?), and a solid enemy beyond our own government to whom we can point the finger of blame.

“All of the current and former officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the continuing investigation is classified,” the Times declared.

Obama Administration accused of refusing negotiated release of beheaded journalists to justify a war with Syria

Editor’s Note: I was really proud that the American people said “NO” to the administration’s first attempt to invade Syria. But since then, Obama and his handlers have continued to wrangle support for another war in the Middle East that is none of our business.

This is evident by their less than sincere efforts to have the hostage journalists released, knowing full well the American public would be outraged and would want the government to “do” somethng.  Make no mistake, fighting ISIS is not about terrorists coming to the U.S. but about controlling Syria and its oil resources.   New NWO rule: if you can take it, you are justified in taking it.  JS

“Sotloff spokesman tells CBS’ This Morning Show Obama Administration ‘bullied annd hectored’ family; ‘shot us down at every opportunity ‘ – story by Steve Watson, London, UK

The spokesman for the family of murdered American journalist Steven Sotloff has once again hit out at the Obama administration, accusing the president and his insiders of being uncooperative and bullying, and scaring the family into softening efforts to rescue Sotloff from the hands of ISIS terrorists.

Appearing on CBS show This Morning, Barak Barfi explained how poorly the family of the slain reporter were treated while they were still trying to save their loved one.

“We had meetings with the administration. The family sat with the National Security Council official. And basically he bullied and hectored them, and they were scared.” Barfi said, explaining the The White house attempted to intimidate the family into withdrawing from the negotiation process.

“I’m hearing Denis McDonough saying they weren’t threatened. He wasn’t in the meeting,” Barfi added, referring to a denial of the accusations by the White House chief of staff. “John Kerry wasn’t in the meetings. The family was in the meetings, and then I was in a subsequent meeting. And I know what I heard.” Barfi urged.

Barfi also said that the Sotloff family “never really believed that the administration was doing anything to help us. We had very, very limited contact with senior officials.”

Referring to discussions of how a ransom could potentially be paid to free Sotloff, Barfi declared that the administration “shot us down at every opportunity.”

“I tried to come up with creative solutions how we could get around the law.” Barfi added. “I said well how do you know that the group holding Steve is a terrorist organization. We know, they said. How would you know if we tried to transfer money. The banks wouldn’t allow it [they said].”

“We don’t have a view into the White House. We didn’t have a very good relationship with the administration….we don’t know what the administration’s policy was on this.” Barfi explained when asked why the administration would treat the family so poorly.

Barfi’s appearance was a follow up on an earlier interview, during which he accused the White House of using both Sotloff and his compatriot journalist James Foley, also killed by ISIS, as pawns to further its agenda in Syria.

In an appearance on CNN, last week Diane Foley, mother of the murdered journalist, also accused a military member of the White House’s security staff of threatening her family with prosecution, should they attempt to facilitate ISIS ransom demands. Mrs Foley also said that her family were ordered not to speak to the media.

In related news, a new video has been released by ISIS showing another British hostage, photographer John Cantlie saying ” I’ve been abandoned by my government.”

In the video, Cantlie promises to uncover “manipulated truths” told by the Western media.

“Over the next few programmes I’m going to show you the truth as the Western media tries to drag the public back to the abyss of another war with the Islamic State,” Cantlie says.

“I’m going to show you the truth behind the systems and motivation of the Islamic State, and how the Western media – the very organisation I used to work for – can twist and manipulate that truth for the public back home. There are two sides to every story – think you’re getting the whole picture?” he continues.

Cantlie promises to reveal how European countries have successfully negotiated with ISIS and had hostages returned, while the US and the UK have refused to do so, and left their people behind because they wish to continue the conflict in the middle east. Cantlie says he has “nothing to lose” and is not being “forced to do this.”

While it is contended that Cantlie is making the comments under duress, critics have pointed out that the propaganda effort strangely plays directly into the hands of the US and UK governments, as it enables critics of the US led strategy against the terror group to be demonized alongside ISIS propagandists.


Link between Autism and the MMR vaccine is exposed by scientist who worked on study

This was published on Aug 25, 2014 by truthstreammedia.com on YouTube.com.

Child having MMR injection.

Child receiving MMR (measles-mumps-rubella vaccination) injection.

“A CDC whistleblower involved in a pivotal study defending official assurances of vaccine safety broke his silence to expose how the study he was involved in massaged the data to cover-up a 340% increase in autism risk for African American children under age three who received the MMR vaccine.

William W. Thompson, PhD. was escorted out of CDC headquarters a few days ago, and presumably fired from his position, after being identified as the whistleblower. For his part, Thompson told the Autism Media Channel, who released a video on his revelations, that he was tired of lying.

Since that report was released, the Autism Media Channel website has gone offline, CNN has pulled two viral iReports summarizing the facts of Thompson’s statements as a whistleblower, and very few other mainstream reports have covered the issue at all.

Thank you to the Autism Media Channel, Jon Rappoport and Mike Adams of Natural News and others in the alternative media for bringing this one out of the shadows. It should be splashed all over every front page in every magazine, news website, and mainstream media channel on TVs across the nation; instead, we’re getting the crickets from a Looney Tunes cartoon. The silence, in the wake of potentially millions of children damaged by these vaccines, is deafening.

The original press release, reposted on Yahoo! Finance, has an unbelievably low number of comments given the gravity of the story – all despite the fact that this is an issue that affects so many families across the country considering the fact that autism has certainly reached epidemic proportions, as it now affects an astonishing 1 in 68 children in the U.S. alone according to the CDC’s own figure (a figure that has gone up 30% just since 2012).”


What is a False Flag Crisis Actor?

Sarah Bajc with her boyfriend, Phillip Wood, a passenger on Malaysia Flight 370

I was doing some research on the Internet and came up with these photos of Sarah Bajc the girlfriend of the U.S. citizen aboard the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, Phillip Wood. She received a lot of attention from all the major mainstream news stations to include CBS and CNN.

If anyone out there can find additional information about this woman, let me know and I will post it.

If she is a plant, the PTB want us to believe it was a conspiracy of sorts with the Rothschild’s as the culprits.  After all, the New World Order globalists are in a serious war with each other. Who will control the world?  Take your pick from 13 families.

Sharyl Attkisson on Face the Nation

Politico, an American political journalism organization, reported on March 10, 2014 that CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson was resigning after months of negotiation allowing Attkisson to leave before her contract with CBS expires.

Atkinson, an award winning journalist, stated she was feeling restricted in her coverage of issues particularly those critical of President Obama. She is working on a book entitled “Stonewalled: One Reporter’s Fight for Truth in Obama’s Washington.”

Attkisson joined CBS News from CNN in 1993. She served as an overnight anchor for two years before becoming a Washington-based correspondent, a position she held until this week. She has won five Emmy awards for her reporting on Fast and Furious, the Red Cross, Republican fundraising, TARP and border patrol.

In August of 2013, Attkisson had complained that her work computer had been hacked.  A CBS News article later confirmed that, indeed, her computer had been hacked several times by an outside, external, unknown source and made sure to state that there was no evidence the government (NSA) was involved in the subterfuge.
