On Sunday, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush mounted the corporate media propaganda platform and complained about the politicization of the Haitian relief effort.
Clinton said the devastating earthquake offers a chance to put aside politics and help people in despair. “I’d say now is not the time to focus on politics,” said Bush in an interview taped Saturday for CBS’ “Face the Nation” when the ex-presidents’ visited the White House in response to Obama’s call for a “bipartisan effort” to help Haiti.
Clinton and Bush were responding to Rush Limbaugh who said he did not trust the administration to use money donated via the White House website for earthquake victims.
The disaster “reminds us of our common humanity. It reminds us of needs that go beyond fleeting disagreements,” said Clinton.
Fine words coming from one of the world’s foremost war criminals. Not only did Bill Clinton terror bomb to death an untold number of people in Iraq and the former Yugoslavia, he also facilitated death squads in Colombia. He is responsible for bombing a crucial pharmaceutical factory in the Sudan. He helped the United Nations kill 500,000 Iraqi children. Bill Clinton’s favorite targets were the sort of poor people he is now claiming to help in Haiti.
In 1975, John Pilger reported the end of the Vietnam War from the American Embassy in Saigon, where the last American troops fled from the roof-top helicopter pad. He was made Journalist of the Year and International Reporter of the Year for his reporting of the Vietnam War over a period of almost ten years. In 1995’s ‘Vietnam: The Last Battle’, Pilger returned to Vietnam to review those twenty years, seeking to rescue something of Vietnamese past and present from Hollywood images which pitied the invader while overshadowing one of the most epic struggles of the 20th century.

How Many Divisions?

Nearly seventy ago, in the course of World War II, a heinous crime was committed in the city of Leningrad. For more than a thousand days, a gang of extremists called “the Red Army” held the millions of the town’s inhabitants hostage and provoked retaliation from the German Wehrmacht from inside the population centers. The Germans had no alternative but to bomb and shell the population and to impose a total blockade, which caused the death of hundreds of thousands.
Some time before that, a similar crime was committed in England. The Churchill gang hid among the population of London, misusing the millions of citizens as a human shield. The Germans were compelled to send their Luftwaffe and reluctantly reduce the city to ruins. They called it the Blitz.
This is the description that would now appear in the history books – if the Germans had won the war.
Absurd? No more than the daily descriptions in our media, which are being repeated ad nauseam: the Hamas terrorists use the inhabitants of Gaza as “hostages” and exploit the women and children as “human shields”, they leave us no alternative but to carry out massive bombardments, in which, to our deep sorrow, thousands of women, children and unarmed men are killed and injured.

A missile test-fired by Iran last week was reported on the BBC World Service as being “capable of striking Israel”.
The choice of words was not unusual. On previous occasions when Iran has test-fired a long-range rocket, the BBC and other western news media dutifully inform us that the said device is “capable of striking Israel”. The well-worn phrase is so reliably heard in these news bulletins that its use betrays a coded script. The not-too subliminal implications are that Iran is: a) a hostile state; b) doing something illegal in test-firing a long-range missile; and c) gearing up to deliver on its alleged threat to wipe out the state of Israel.
Within hours of these reports last week, the US government weighed in with the pious accusation that the test-firing “undermines Iran’s claims of peaceful intentions”.

Summary: Everything seems to suggest that 9/11 was an inside job, an excuse to initiate Brzezinski’s “Grand Chess-board” – military operations in Central Asia in order to submit it to the New World Order World Government. More and more people think so – and are therefore skeptical when new “terrorist attacks” occur. An attempt by a Nigerian in a plane from Amsterdam to Detroit to detonate a bomb triggered suspicions of a false flag action by U.S. government in order to create the right panic to renew the unconstitutional Patriot Act in Congress in February. There is also suspicion that the USA has plans to deploy its military in Yemen, where the terrorist is said to have had his insufficient education. Mr. Obama and Gordon Brown claim that Yemen is haunted by Al-Qaeda fighters who have fled Afghanistan and Pakistan and are now making the world unsafe from Yemen. There will probably just ensue some bombing and a police expeditionary force, as the U.S. cannot cope with a new front. Besides, A Somali Shabab/”Al-Qaida” sympathizer in Denmark has tried to collect the 1 mio. dollar reward and a ticket to Allah´s Paradise for killing a Muhammad-cartoonist.
On the basis of the Nigerian´s failure which occurred under very strange circumstances, the United States, Britain and Spain have now closed their embassies in Yemen for fear of Al-Quaida – and Obama promises to defuse these hateful warriors – an echo of President Bush in 2001.
But the question is whether Al-Qaeda is anything more than a convenient scapegoat and an excuse for the New World Order with the U.S. and Britain at the forefront to be used for promoting their policies. A BBC study concludes that Al-Qaeda never existed, and the very Council on Foreign Relation’s Magazine, “Foreign Affairs”, states that Al-Qaeda consists of only 200 frightened warriors who try to hide in Pakistan’s mountains. Al-Quaida has not been able to establish any network in the U.S. and the FBI has not found a single Al-Quaida cell nor seen just one single Al-Quaida attack in the entire world! A look back at 9/11 also shows strange situations. There is several credible evidence that the “hijackers” are alive and well-off after 11 Sept! There is only 1 person convicted for 9/11 involvement in the U.S. – and that happened on false evidence and because of the man’s aggressive threats. In other cases, there have been confessions after up to 183 waterboardings in a month – but no convictions, only Guantanamo! A judge ruled that the CIA and other government agencies lied with regard to 9/11 “evidence”
So,everything suggests that “Al-Quaida” has just been conveniently invented by the U.S.
Americans Don’t Even Know to Ask

The Taliban suicide attack that killed a group of CIA agents in Afghanistan on a base that was directing US drone aircraft used to attack Taliban leaders was big news in the US over the past week, with the airwaves and front pages filled with sympathetic stories referring to the fact that the female station chief, who was among those killed, was the “mother of three children.”
But the apparent mass murder of Afghan school children, including one as young as 11 years old, by US-led forces (most likely either special forces or mercenary contractors working for the Pentagon or the CIA), was pretty much blacked out in the American media. Especially blacked out was word from UN investigators that the students had not just been killed but executed, many of them after having first been rousted from their bedroom and handcuffed.
The Origins of World War III: Part 3

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I have analyzed US and NATO geopolitical strategy since the fall of the Soviet Union, in expanding the American empire and preventing the rise of new powers, containing Russia and China. This Part examines the implications of this strategy in recent years; following the emergence of a New Cold War, as well as analyzing the war in Georgia, the attempts and methods of regime change in Iran, the coup in Honduras, the expansion of the Afghan-Pakistan war theatre, and spread of conflict in Central Africa. These processes of a New Cold War and major regional wars and conflicts take the world closer to a New World War. Peace can only be possible if the tools and engines of empires are dismantled.

Mind Control” is a loaded term, often associated with science fiction and the fantastical by people who are not aware of its very real history. Images of Orwell’s “1984” or Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” are conjured; dystopic nightmare landscapes assumed only possible in pulp literature. What many people do not know or realize is that these books were based on actual ideas and theories that had been put forward by social and scientific elites for decades, and in some cases, centuries. The desire of the “ruling class” to understand the mechanics of the human mind has left a trail of misery dating back to earliest recorded history. It was not enough for them to subjugate the masses through force; the Elites wanted the people to accept their slavery, to integrate it into their psyches. They wanted us to be “thankful” for our servitude, for only then, would they truly be in control of the world.
The Climate Religion and Copenhagen I. UN: “Environment Should Compete with Religion, So That We can Shape People and Countries”Posted: December 5, 2009

Summary: The UN´s Environmental programme (UNEP) is very ambitious. It wants the environmental movement to be vying with religion to set our standards and values. A heretofore secret document shows the UNEP will command governments on climate issues to include all social conditions, and milk governments for money. The UNEP is engaged in a gigantic mission work, starting with green- and brainwashing children through 30,000 organizations worldwide – using the same methods as the British government´s Futerra. At a meeting in Paris on 4th and 5 Sept. UNEP took the oath of the media to run environmentalist propaganda until the Copenhagen Conference and beyond, while the whole UN apparatus is mobilized in an unprecedented campaign of climate lies for a political agreement in Copenhagen.
The King of cap and trade simply airbrushes them in to his new book to create a more scary earth

With the increasingly discredited notion of man-made global warming crashing and burning on a daily basis, climate alarmists are being forced to accelerate their fearmongering to unprecedented levels. With the evidence failing to match up to the doomsday proclamations, Al Gore has turned to photoshop in order to make a CO2-choked earth look scary enough to sell his cap and trade scam.
The latest example of climate cult fakery comes in the form of the front cover of Al Gore’s new book, Our Choice; A Plan To Solve The Climate Crisis.
Shortly after the devastation of Katrina, Al Gore was busy making a correlation between hurricanes and global warming in an effort to drive home his claim that higher global CO2 emissions cause an increase in extreme weather events. The cover art for Gore’s movie, An Inconvenient Truth, features an image of a hurricane rising out of a smoke stack.
Seemingly underwhelmed that there have been no major hurricanes since Katrina, along with the fact that global hurricane activity is now at a thirty year low, Gore came up with an ingenious method of solving the problem of the lack of scary depictions of frightening hurricanes to display on his book – simply airbrush them in!

The World Health Organization (WHO) is continuing to deceive the world by stating sweeping assumptions about the Ukraine pandemic. Despite huge differences in transmission and deaths rates, the agency stated Tuesday that it was valid to assume that most of the cases of influenza reportedly combing through the Ukraine were caused by the pandemic A(H1N1) virus.
There is very little left to be respected of the WHO. After months of using junk science and contradictions to conceal actual swine flu cases, they are now launching phase two of their deceptive operation: Convince the world that a more lethal strain of flu is still the same H1N1 virus.

It’s beginning to look more and more like the fraudulently fabricated Swine Flu pandemic is turning out to be a false alarm — even the World Health Organization (WHO) is reportedly admitting that there is no deadly mutation of the H1N1 Swine Flu. It’s time to put an end to the Swine Flu fear mongering and all the egregious pandemic propaganda…and to tell the truth about the dangers of the vaccines.
The Swine Flu dangers have been grossly overstated and the Pharmaceutical companies aren’t the only one that have reaped the benefits of a fraudulently created pandemic. It’s becoming increasingly clear — there is a disturbing pattern — that the Government has once again manufactured fear to terrify the public. In keeping with their tradition of tooting the Government’s horn, the media has been playing it up for all it’s worth. Not that it’s surprising, but America is still being led by liars.
The Swine Flu pandemic is turning out to be quite a little racket. First the Pharmaceutical companies reap in billions of dollars while the world’s population gets screwed and now VeriChip’s stock reportedly tripled after they were granted an exclusive license to two patents, which will help it develop implantable virus detection systems in humans. VeriChip’s system involves Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFIDs) for use in bracelets — and humans — that those who are forced to vaccinate could receive in some places. It’s time for the Police State that has run rampant in this country the past eight and a half years to come to an end.

The establishment’s propaganda drive to convince everyone to take the swine flu shot has gone into overdrive, surpassing any previous effort in the domain of public health and stoking suspicions about the motivations of pharmaceutical giants, especially in light of the fact that the H1N1 virus is far less deadly than the regular seasonal flu.
Governments have temporarily backed away from their plans to mandate the shot, but this hasn’t stopped the juggernaut of a mass media brainwashing campaign that is brow-beating reluctant citizens to take the vaccine even in the absence of the widely promised deadlier second wave of the swine flu virus.
Everywhere you look, the corporate media is over spilling with big pharma mouthpieces endlessly regurgitating the refrain that the idiot public should shut up, stop asking difficult questions about mercury, squalene and other additives, and just ‘take the damn vaccine’.

The media campaign of half-truths and fabrications over Iran’s nuclear programs stepped up a notch over the weekend. A prominent front-page article in Sunday’s New York Times breathlessly revealed “a confidential analysis” by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors who “concluded” that Tehran had sufficient information to build a workable atomic bomb.
While even the New York Times conceded that the conclusions were “tentative and subject to further confirmation”, the article conveniently provided the opportunity for Obama administration officials to do the rounds of the Sunday television talk-shows to argue for intensifying pressure on Iran and for right-wing commentators and lawmakers to demand more aggressive action.

An article in the journal, Sociological Inquiry, casts light on the effectiveness of propaganda. Researchers examined why big lies succeed where little lies fail. Governments can get away with mass deceptions, but politicians cannot get away with sexual affairs.
The researchers explain why so many Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11, years after it has become obvious that Iraq had nothing to do with the event. Americans developed elaborate rationalizations based on Bush administration propaganda that alleged Iraqi involvement and became deeply attached to their beliefs. Their emotional involvement became wrapped up in their personal identity and sense of morality. They looked for information that supported their beliefs and avoided information that challenged them, regardless of the facts of the matter.
