Old-school conspiracies, again

"More Data on Attributing the Sony Attack" (Bruce Schneier)

"Inside The Secret Budapest Meeting Of 'Racial Realists'":
"The genesis of the event was an announcement by the National Policy Institute in Washington, which sees itself as a right-wing think tank. It is so far right that nobody in the political mainstream wants to be associated with it."
"National Policy Institute" "Hungary Wants To Ban National Policy Institute Conference"  So, obviously an American stunt (note that the National Policy Institute is connected to the Pioneer Fund, which is connected to the highest levels of the American establishment), and we ought to be considering the American origins of the new European Islamophobia (which, of course, is based on the Jewish concept of Islamophobia). 

"The Bell Curve and the Pioneer Fund"  Of course, The Bell Curve was heavily promoted by The New Republic.  Sullivan's comical attempt at defending himself and TNR.

These mysterious Asian plane crashes - I'm wondering if the Americans have identified a 'terrorist' on board flights originating in Muslim countries and are shooting down whole planes as a 'targeted assassination'.  Barry insists on his right to do such things, and the horror of it is completely within the scope of what we've seen Americans doing.

"Mysterious Chinese Blogger Predicted AirAsia Disappearance Two Weeks Ago"

"Why the Secrecy on the Mh17 Investigation"

The Saker:
"There is no doubt my mind that MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian SU-25, possibly one of several Su-25s patrolling the skies that day to intercept a civilian airliner the downing of which was to become the "surprise" Poroshenko promised and which Kolomoiskii probably organized."

First we shoot your parents then we invite you to the zoo

"Banning Dissent in the Name of Civility" by Chris Hedges:
"The code word that the Israel lobby and its facilitators at universities use to silence critics is “civility.” Israel supporters are permitted to spout hate and calls for indiscriminate violence against Palestinians. Critics of Israel, however, even if they are careful to denounce violence and not to demonize Jews, are banned in the name of “civility.” It is the height of academic duplicity."

"Why does Washington always ignore the best advice?"  Truman made a horrible decision against the best advice due to bags of Jewish money, which is the exact same reason Barry makes bad decisions, and why the US Congress makes bizarrely bad decisions.  It is not complicated.  Everybody in Washington didn't suddenly lose 50 points of IQ.  All these bad decisions are paid for.  To be fair, some of the bad decisions are due to blackmail of the very weak, twisted and faulty people who are chosen to be politicians.

"Revealed: Gaza orphans Israel trip was government-backed PR stunt"  Quite a damning uncovering of a failed attempt at hasbara between an extremist right-wing Jew - described in a typical barefaced lie by the New York Times as a  'leftist activist' - and Palestinian collaborators.  Note how the New York Times is an integral part of the hasbara.  I wonder if anybody there worries that the paper thus loses all credibility on all issues.

Tweet (Robert Donahue):
"“: Hamas Turns Back 37 Gaza War Orphans From a Trip to Israel First we shoot your parents then we invite you to the zoo"

"Backlash in Berlin over NSA spying recedes as threat from Islamic State rises" Stop worrying about one set of American covert ops due to your fears about another American covert op?

Crazy Pierre has had his Intercept minions attack Pando for having the temerity to question the safety of Tor, recently revealed to have been funded by the Pentagon.  What could possibly go wrong? Tweet (Varshney Tech):
", Micah Lee & Clueless. nails it. exposing case of corruption."

"On the new Snowden documents"

"Palestinians will outnumber Israeli Jews in 2016 - report"  The CIA thinks that this has already happened.  "Here are all the times the Palestinians have predicted they’ll outnumber Jews in Israel-Palestine"  It is important because one-person, one-vote in the single state means that the Palestinians will eventually - when the children are of voting age - gain political control of the single state, and they can finally get around to changing the currency, flag, language and name of the new state of Palestine.

"The End of Modern Jewish History" by Harry Clark.  Devastating, including a deep dissection of the deceptions of Chomsky and other Jewish 'leftists' (to be fair, Noam appears to have also fooled himself due to his personal Jewish mythologies).

Thank u Sony

All you really need to know about lite Zionism and the Israeli 'left':  "Former Peace Now Activist to Run with Jewish Home"

Avi seems to be posing a problem for Bibi, so:  "Avigdor Lieberman: Hard-right Israeli minister's fate in balance after aides arrested for fraud"

America, your 'lefty' heroes are frauds (and who are these 'bullies and censors'?):
"I have just booked "The Interview" to play at my theater, The Bijou, in Traverse City, MI, beginning on Christmas Day. Shows each morning and late night. We must always stand against bullies and censors. Thank u Sony."

If you trust their numbers - and I don't - it appears Sony has made just about enough money off The Interview to partly pay the costs of Franco's entourage.

"The Prosecution of the CIA Whistleblower Who Revealed Waterboarding to the World"  It is as if somebody is convicted of murder and then the alleged murder victim walks into the police station, and they still won't let the guy out of jail.  Much of what the Americans do now concerning things like illegal torture, Guantanamo, and innumerable Wars For The Jews, is done just so they don't have to own up to all the wrongdoing.

"The Mysterious Case of Prisoner 212"

"Working the Dark Side:  David Bromwich writes about torture"

"How The CIA's Torture Program Is Destroying The Key Foreign Power The US Had: The Moral High Ground"  It is rarely recognized - but see here - that Barry was forced to deal with Cuba to avoid an embarrassing public conflict with almost all of Latin America.:  "Cuba to attend first-ever Americas summit - Panama"

"Why Cuba always had the superior moral ground over the US"


An example of the Jewish billionaire problem:  "Meet the Falics: West Bank settlement funders, Netanyahu backers, and owners of Duty Free America"

"Wiesenthal Center top 10 list: Worst global anti-Semitic/anti-Israel incidents of 2014"  You'll note that almost all officially recognized 'anti-Semitism' is in one way or another a protest of Jewish supremacist violence.

Crapified

"Putin: It Is Time To Play Your Ace In The Hole" (and what 'types' would they be?):
"The Goldman Sachs, Rothschild and Soros types control the Western democracies as well as the financial markets and use paid or blackmailed cheerleaders and front men to advance their best interests to the populace as acceptable economic or political policies."
That ace has been played with China essentially agreeing to backstop the Russian economy, probably the biggest thing that has happened this year, so hardly mentioned.

Remember when Google had all sorts of useful options on the search page and almost no crap?  It is now unrecognizable:  "Google Further Crapifies Search, Exploiting Both Users and Advertisers".  It is completely clear from my experience that Google has been set up to prevent comparison shopping, which makes perfect sense when you think about it. There is a much more profound comment about the deep nature of capitalism buried here, with 'the markets' having a big problem with too much consumer access to information.

You can do a lot of alterations to DuckDuckGo, including, for me, the all-important opening of search results in a new tab, at the Advanced Settings, but they need to add things like news to the search options.  Bing is also better than Google.

"BBC’s Kafkaesque response to complaint over Gaza coverage"  Circular reasoning.  You must learn to love your Jewish overlords.

"Israel - Ibrahimi Mosque" Al-Aqsa Mosque is next, and is being handled by World Jewry in the same way.

Supremacism from the only real human beings:  "How New York Times conceals Israeli violence against Palestinians|"

"'Offended' Israel not to support publicly the US-Cuba breakthrough - report"  Since Zionist treason agent Ben Rhodes negotiated the thing, I think they are protesting a little too much to cover for what is really an Israeli initiative to make a new friend.  If the Republicans collapse on their opposition, it will be proof that the Zionists are behind it, for Zionist reasons.

"Minimum Income: What You Should Know About The Idea That Could Revolutionize The 21st Century"

"Nigel Farage Criticises Pupils For Parody Where “Nicolas Fromage” Kicks Immigrants Away From England"  The young people know their politicians are all assholes.

"Is Sony's crackdown a bigger threat to western free speech than North Korea?" by Trevor Timm.  There is an enormous amount of irony in Sony marketing its crappy movie based on 'free speech'.

Willie MacRae

The WikiLeaks Twitter call for Xmas wishes produced an amazing and long list of secrets from around the world, and I couldn't help but notice the case of Willie MacRae, one of the most egregious cases of an obvious murder being officially labeled a suicide.

Requests

WikiLeaks is taking requests on Twitter.

Elf on the Shelf

"'Santa Claus and the Surveillance State'"  The next generation is supposed to find total government surveillance normal.

Jews (and other violent racist eliminationist supremacists) often appear to be aliens from another planet just arrived on earth, completely unable to comprehend normal human emotions and reactions.  This explains why hasbara is such a dismal failure, and usually backfires.  "The Israeli army Hanukkah tweet that creeped the world out"  Tweet (Terrina Aguilar):
" 'Does this drone make my butt look too big?'"
Related: "If Joseph and Mary tried to reach Bethlehem today, they might get murdered by Palestinian terrorists"

"Was Michael Rockefeller Killed By Cannibals?"  If so, it would be the first and only positive contribution to humanity by a Rockefeller.

Tweet (London Review (LRB)):
"Who, anyway, emits a Christmas card with their own mugshot on it? "
"Sony email chain on behalf of Israel joined Russell Simmons and Michael Lynton with rightwing Zionists" (Weiss; and note his update at the end). A perceptive comment by Blownaway:
"Geez if anyone were to say that this kind of letter and collaboration existed they would be accused of anti semitism and blood libel ala protocols. The truth is much more scary."
Tweet (Jeff Faria):
"And be on time. Mr. Cheney is a busy man. "
The truth about the torture defense.

A history of bad men

"Why the Bad Guys Keep Winning"

"Rabbis plan to build temple on Al-Aqsa ruins"

"NY Times says a Palestinian majority would ‘endanger Israel’s democratic ideals’"  One person, one vote has always been considered to be anti-democratic.

"Former Palestinian negotiator joins Washington think-tank"  He can move from one side to the other without having to change any of his positions!

"Can Liberal Zionists Count On Hillary Clinton?"  If American politics was operating properly, this article would look very bizarre.

"Conrad Black: The Saudis believe the West is about to give in to Iranian demands. Crashing the price of oil is how it fights back"  I'm still convinced this is fundamentally an attack on the United States, but of course such an attack on The Empire is unspeakable, as it is a symptom of weakness.  Note that the obvious long-run implications of low oil prices is a strengthening of the Anti-Empire Alliance.

"If energy prices remain near current levels, Canada's economy is in trouble"  "Falling Oil Prices Could Rock Canada's Politics: Expert"  The end of Canada's filthy oil business would be nothing short of wonderful.

Tweet (Glenn Greenwald):
"Full list of all the confirmed and alleged anti-US attacks triggered by release of the torture report "

But here's another short list:  Snowden Tally

Tweet (Anonymous):
"Don't let police union donut brigade PR stooges fool you. Police deaths are at a 50-year low. "

"Russia, China mock divide and rule"  Some rather aggressive suggestions from Pepe Escobar.  The Eurotrash bureaucrats need to be scared into doing the right thing and abandoning the dying American Empire.

Lie factory

"GAO says FBI’s investigation of anthrax attacks was flawed":
"The FBI used flawed scientific methods to investigate the 2001 anthrax attacks that killed five people and sickened 17 others, federal auditors said Friday in a report sure to fuel skepticism over the FBI’s conclusion that Army biodefense researcher Bruce Ivins was the sole perpetrator."
Yes, having absolutely no evidence would 'be sure to fuel skepticism' over the frame-up of Ivins.

Footnote:
"Ivins died in July 2008 of an apparently intentional Tylenol overdose as the Justice Department prepared to indict him."
Steven Hatfill was the first patsy the FBI picked, and when he fought back too successfully, they settled on Ivins, whose personal weaknesses made it too difficult for him to challenge the lies. As we've seen with the recent FBI blame on North Korea for the Sony hacking case, the FBI is nothing more than a lie factory.

From the same time period (fall of 2001), a possible murder that many have wondered about:
  1. "What Happened to Don Wiley?"
  2. "Colleagues Doubt Wiley Suicide Theory"
The mysterious deaths of such people were fashionable at the time:
  1.  "16 renowned microbiologists died mysteriously in 4 months: 11/01-3/02"
  2. "The mysterious deaths of top microbiologists"
  3. "Conspiracy didn't kill eleven microbiologists, just coincidence --a case of "random clumping" and death by "roadway bounce""

The Propaganda Model

"What If North Korea Didn’t Hack Sony?: 4 Alternate Theories"  "The Sony hack: What if it isn't North Korea?"  The FBI's evidence is laughably weak.

"Sony Pictures Presents:  the Propaganda Model"

This is what you get if you make racist jokes about the President in your leaked emails:  "Obama: Sony Made a Mistake Pulling The Interview"

Phony claims of anti-Semitism to allow World Jewry to kill people and steal their land?  There's an app for that:  "Hillel International and Simon Wiesenthal Center’s incredibly creepy new campus surveillance tool"

"How Facebook May Secretly Foil Your Activist Plans" (from 2013, tweeted here)

"Ferguson DA Claims He Knew Witnesses Were Lying, Let Them Testify Anyway"  Clear grounds for disbarment and for a new grand jury.

"Canada’s war on terror has a Catch-22 absurdity: Walkom" (the sheer amount of freedom we all give up so that World Jewry can kill people and steal their land is nothing short of amazing):
"The relief fund can appeal this terrorist designation and is trying to do so. But to mount a successful legal action it must raise money.
Yet as a proscribed terrorist organization it cannot raise money without putting donors at risk of being labelled terrorists.
That’s because, as the public safety department website explains, it is illegal to fund “any activity of a listed entity for the purpose of enhancing the ability of the entity to facilitate and carry out a terrorist activity” — a clause the government apparently interprets quite broadly
Put simply, if an organization is labelled terrorist by the government, any attempt to dispute that label is itself terrorism.
Catch-22.
As The Canadian Press reported Thursday, the relief organization is going to federal court in an effort to win the right to raise money to mount a defence.
To avoid running afoul of anti-terror laws, the lawyer in this particular case is working for free."
Tweet (Liliana Segura):
"There's something so perfect about a Seth Rogen movie depicting a CIA assassination assuming the moral mantle of cherished American ideals."
Remember that Sony was going to lose a lot of money on this piece-of-shit movie. Now they can save the promotion costs and distract people from the real scandals in the emails.  "The Interview Is "Desperately Unfunny", "Will Flop" If Not Cancelled According To Leaked Sony Emails"

Manipulations

Poll manipulation:
"Stat of the day –> 51 percent – By a 51- 29 margin, Americans say that the CIA’s interrogation methods are justified, according to Pew Research Center. The poll has come under criticism for not defining what those methods were, failing to mention that they violate the law and avoiding the word “torture.”"
Paragraph after paragraph on market manipulation: "Rigging the Market: by Paul Craig Roberts

"CIA Officer Michael Winograd ran CIA torture site Green"

"The secret to the Uber economy is wealth inequality"

"Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban Want to Be the Koch Brothers for Israel"  It would be nice if the ego of certain Jewish billionaires wrecked the Lobby.

"Rupert Murdoch criticised for 'gloating' about his paper's Sydney siege coverage"

"Sony Hack: Studio Security Points to Inside Job"  Sony is hiding the real scandal behind discussion of its bad and arrogant assassination movie:  "Sony leaks reveal Hollywood is trying to break DNS, the backbone of the internet"

"CIA Review of High-Value Target Assassination Programs"  "Leaked CIA document reveals setbacks of targeted killings"  The point is to destabilize and weaken countries like Pakistan that are regarded as threats to the Zionist project, and on that count the drones and the assassinations are a success.

So which is it?

"Good Riddance to a Ridiculous Cuba Policy"

"Castro, Cuba, Obama—and Iran"

So which is it?

The concentration camp guard makes a big deal out of the fact it was none other than Zionist treason agent Ben Rhodes who led the American negotiation team.  I am thus certain this is a Zionist attempt to gain a new friend in Cuba.  This will be proven if the Republicans don't do anything serious to ruin the deal.

Of course, getting their agent out was also important.  By the way:  "Rabbi Doctor Who Visited Alan Gross In Cuba Says Gross Was Not Seriously Ill"  When Pollard gets out the two of them will run the marathon on the West Bank.

Alternative fairly tale

"The Oil Coup"  This is likely completely backwards.  Kerry probably went to see King Abdullah to try to talk him out of this crazy scheme, part of the ongoing manic-depressive influence of Prince Bandar, but the Saudis, furious with the Americans over the failure to remove Assad and the negotiations with Iran, want to pressure the Americans to follow a more Zionist line.  Noticing this is noticing American Empire vulnerability, so we can't go there.  Of course, we could even travel a stage higher in questioning the idea that the Saudis, as we're constantly told the 'swing producer' (despite the fact that numerous new sources of hydrocarbons have come on line in the last 20 years), actually have that much power at all.  The collapse of oil prices is actually due to a collapse in world demand for oil caused by the complete collapse of the world economy caused by the predations of the 1% and neoliberalism, but we're really not supposed to notice this, so we need an alternative fairy tale.

"Blowback from Oil Price War: Sovereign Wealth Funds Selling Investments"  Note the likelihood that American shale oil producers are lying to their lenders by lowering their claimed break-even costs, lying which has now made it into academic analysis and news reports.  Of course, the lenders would be destroyed by the truth (the truth would no doubt trigger automatic loan defaults of loans with worthless collateral), and need to be bailed out by the American government, so they play along.

"The Impact of Falling Oil On The U.S. Economy – John Mauldin"  Note what will happen to the American employment situation and GDP without the hydrocarbon boom.

Of course, if the fall in oil prices is not caused by the Saudis, but by a long-term collapse in demand caused by a world recession, there is no easy step that can be taken to correct it.

The candles are missiles:  "U.S. Ambassador to Israel Gets an Early Hanukkah Gift: an Iron Dome Menorah"

"Saudi Arabia is playing chicken with its oil"  While the Saudis are happy to mess with Russia and Iran, the real target of this is obviously the United States, whose 'recovery' is entirely based on hydrocarbon extraction dependent on extremely high oil prices.  Related, the necessity of prearranging for the next too-big-to-fail bailouts of the banksters, over their heads in shale oil derivative exposure:  "Did Wall Street Need to Win the Derivatives Budget Fight to Hedge Against Oil Plunge?"

Don't you know your queen?

There is almost nothing new in the Torture Report, except perhaps for demonstrating how obsessed the CIA is with the male butt.  I wonder if they have some kind of 'fruit machine' to determine whether someone is qualified to join the CIA interrogation squad.  Don't you know your queen?

Tweet (Sam Husseini; his posting on the issue):
"Key torture report finding buried in footnote 857: torture helped produce bogus case for Powell on Iraq war"
Landay at McClatchy, 2009 (without the specifics, but with clear understanding that the torture was intended to produce lies to be used for propaganda):  "Report: Abusive tactics used to seek Iraq-al Qaida link"

We could even go further back to the Executive Intelligence Review News Service, 2005:  "DIA Proof Of Cheney's Lies Released" (based on the CIA's President's Daily Briefing of September 21, 2001, before Ibn Shaykh al-Libi had been captured and interrogated by the Americans, and before his rendition to Egypt, where torture created his testimony of an Iraq-al Qaeda connection).  This means that the intelligence community knew the stories they were creating using torture were lies.

The newest revelation, separate from the Torture Report, is that Levin has details from the classified March 2003 - just before the American attack on Iraq started - CIA cable warning that the allegation that Mohamed Atta had met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in Prague was false.  Ironically, it appears that Brennan has released this in order to attempt to protect the CIA's reputation by emphasizing that Bush/Cheney/Powell had been given due warning from the CIA that the propaganda basis for the American attack on Iraq was a lie.  Levin:
"There is a second recent revelation about how the “Prague meeting” progressed from unsubstantiated report to justification for war. It comes from Jiri Ruzek, who headed the Czech counterintelligence service on and after 9/11. Mr. Ruzek published a memoir earlier this year, which we have had translated from Czech. It recounts the days after the terror attack, including how his nation’s intelligence services first reported a single-source rumor of a Prague meeting between Atta and al-Ani, how CIA officials under pressure from CIA headquarters in turn pressured him to substantiate the rumor, and how U.S. officials pressured the Czech government when Czech intelligence officials failed to produce the confirmation that the Bush administration sought.
Mr. Ruzek writes, “It was becoming more and more clear that we had not met expectations and did not provide the ‘right’ intelligence output.” Mr. Ruzek goes on: “The Americans showed me that anything can be violated, including the rules that they themselves taught us. Without any regard to us, they used our intelligence information for propaganda press leaks. They wanted to mine certainty from unconfirmed suspicion and use it as an excuse for military action. We were supposed to play the role of useful idiot thanks to whose initiative a war would be started.”
That’s chilling. We have a senior intelligence official of a friendly nation describing the pressure that he and other Czech officials were under to give the Bush administration material it could use to justify a war."

The Atta Prague meeting is the creation of Douglas Feith, who created the lie in the face of specific CIA information to the contrary, and passed it on through Libby to Cheney and Powell (of course, the suppressed 'Able Danger' material informs us that 'Atta' was working for the US government throughout, as one of those false flag recruiters/military trainers in the mold of Ali Mohamed, a role much beloved by the Pentagon, so the CIA or Pentagon knew where 'Atta' was at all times, including not being in Prague at the relevant time; my emphasis in red and green):
"Cheney's public statements before and after the war about the risks posed by Iraq have closely tracked the briefing Feith's office presented to the vice president's then-chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. That includes the briefing's depiction of an alleged 2001 meeting in Prague between an Iraqi intelligence official and one of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers as one of eight "Known Iraq-Al Qaida Contacts."
The defense report states that at the time, "the intelligence community disagreed with the briefing's assessment that the alleged meeting constituted a 'known contact' " -- a circumstance that the report said was known to Feith's office. But his office had bluntly concluded in a July 2002 critique of a CIA report on Iraq's relationship with al-Qaeda that the CIA's interpretation of the facts it cited "ought to be ignored."
The briefing to Libby was also presented with slight variations to then-Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, then-CIA Director George J. Tenet and then-deputy national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley. It was prepared in part by someone whom the defense report described as a "junior Naval Reservist" intelligence analyst detailed to Feith's office from the DIA. The person is not named in the report, but Edelman wrote that she was requested by Feith's office."
I wonder if the DIA connection means it was the DIA, and not the CIA, that was directing the various torturers in what specific story they wanted from the torture.  You also have to wonder if she was part of an Israeli conspiracy with Feith.  It is not clear that the Prague meeting came out of a guided torture session, or whether she and Feith just made it up.

Dangerous aversion

"Michael Hudson: U.S. New Cold War Policy Has Backfired"  From the hilarious introduction by Yves Smith:
"One thing that is striking about the US decision to escalate against Russia is that it’s not at all clear what the trigger was. And that raises the possibility that these hostilities were instigated out peeve, or what one might more politely call imperial reflex, reflecting the belief that Russia needed to be punished for its various sins, such as supporting Iran, outmaneuvering the US in Syria, and harboring Snowden. And the assumption appears to have been that Russia could be taken down a notch or two on the geopolitical stage at no cost to the US. Hudson explains that the reverse is proving to be the case."
Victoria Nuland ran the Maidan operation, and boasted of spending $5 billion of American taxpayer dollars in doing so.  Victoria Nuland is married to Robert Kagan.  Here are some of Robert Kagan's projects:
  1. January 26, 1998 letter to Bill Clinton, insisting on a war on Iraq due to weapons of mass destruction;
  2. May 29, 1998 letter to Newt and Trent whining about Bill's (sane) inaction;
  3.  the infamous and disastrous 'Rebuilding America's Defenses' from the infamous Project for the New American Century (say, how is that new century working out for you?);
  4.  not wasting any time, September 20, 2001 letter to George Bush, insisting on wars against Afghanistan, Iraq and Hezbollah, an end to American support for the Palestinian Authority, and a large increase in American defense spending;
  5. April 3, 2002 letter to George Bush insisting on various Zionist goals, and wondering how the Iraq war plans were coming;
  6. "Not Fade Away"  (the parasite explains that there is still a little juice left in the host;  see also:  "Obama embraces Romney advisor’s theory on ‘The Myth of American Decline’"); and
  7. "Robert Kagan: America's Dangerous Aversion to Conflict".
In case what is going on is still unclear:
  1.  "The ex-Israeli soldier who led a Kiev fighting unit";
  2. "Ukraine: Israeli Special Forces Unit under Neo-Nazi Command Involved in Maidan Riots?"
The paradoxes which people continue to pretend not to be able to understand will continue as long as Americans continue to allow American foreign and military policy to be run by traitors working solely for the interests of a foreign violent racist supremacist group.

From the comments to the Hudson piece, 'sufferin' succotash' gets it.  If the 'paradoxes' are still causing trouble, see the red bits from Irving Kristol.

"CIA Torture Pseudonyms"

"Torture is Good?" by Chris Floyd:
"A truncated version of the Senate investigation into the CIA’s Terror War torture regime has finally been released. Even in its limited form, it details an operation of vile depravity, one which would plunge a civilized nation into a profound crisis of conscience and spark a deep and anguished debate on how best to transform a system of government — and a national ethos — that could lead to such putrid crimes. It would also occasion a wide-ranging effort to subject the originators, perpetrators and accomplices of the torture program to the full measure of legal punishment they deserve.
Needless to say, nothing like that is going to happen in America. Indeed, even before the report was released, the New York Times — the standard-bearer and shaper of “decent” liberal thought for the nation — was splashing an opinion piece on the front page of its website, demanding that we “Pardon Bush and Those Who Tortured.” This was the very first “think piece” pushed by the Times on the morning of the report’s release."

"Isis: the inside story" (very close to simply stating that ISIS is a creation of the American government):
"But at the time of his stay at Bucca, Baghdadi’s group was little-known, and he was a far less significant figure than the insurgency’s notional leader, the merciless Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who came to represent the sum of all fears for many in Iraq, Europe and the US. Baghdadi, however, had a unique way to distinguish himself from the other aspiring leaders inside Bucca and outside on Iraq’s savage streets: a pedigree that allowed him to claim direct lineage to the Prophet Muhammed. He had also obtained a PhD in Islamic studies from the Islamic University of Baghdad, and would draw on both to legitimise his unprecedented claim to anoint himself caliph of the Islamic world in July 2014, which realised a sense of destiny evident in the prison yard a decade earlier.
“Baghdadi was a quiet person,” said Abu Ahmed. “He has a charisma. You could feel that he was someone important. But there were others who were more important. I honestly did not think he would get this far.”
Baghdadi also seemed to have a way with his captors. According to Abu Ahmed, and two other men who were jailed at Bucca in 2004, the Americans saw him as a fixer who could solve fractious disputes between competing factions and keep the camp quiet.
“But as time went on, every time there was a problem in the camp, he was at the centre of it,” Abu Ahmed recalled. “He wanted to be the head of the prison – and when I look back now, he was using a policy of conquer and divide to get what he wanted, which was status. And it worked.” By December 2004, Baghdadi was deemed by his jailers to pose no further risk and his release was authorised.
“He was respected very much by the US army,” Abu Ahmed said. “If he wanted to visit people in another camp he could, but we couldn’t. And all the while, a new strategy, which he was leading, was rising under their noses, and that was to build the Islamic State. If there was no American prison in Iraq, there would be no IS now. Bucca was a factory. It made us all. It built our ideology.”
As Isis has rampaged through the region, it has been led by men who spent time in US detention centres during the American occupation of Iraq – in addition to Bucca, the US also ran Camp Cropper, near Baghdad airport, and, for an ill-fated 18 months early in the war, Abu Ghraib prison on the capital’s western outskirts. Many of those released from these prisons – and indeed, several senior American officers who ran detention operations – have admitted that the prisons had an incendiary effect on the insurgency.
“I went to plenty of meetings where guys would come through and tell us how well it was all going,” said Ali Khedery, a special aide to all US ambassadors who served in Iraq from 2003-11, and to three US military commanders. But eventually even top American officers came to believe they had “actually become radicalising elements. They were counterproductive in many ways. They were being used to plan and organise, to appoint leaders and launch operations.”
Abu Ahmed agreed. “In prison, all of the princes were meeting regularly. We became very close to those we were jailed with. We knew their capabilities. We knew what they could and couldn’t do, how to use them for whatever reason. The most important people in Bucca were those who had been close to Zarqawi. He was recognised in 2004 as being the leader of the jihad.
“We had so much time to sit and plan,” he continued. “It was the perfect environment. We all agreed to get together when we got out. The way to reconnect was easy. We wrote each other’s details on the elastic of our boxer shorts. When we got out, we called. Everyone who was important to me was written on white elastic. I had their phone numbers, their villages. By 2009, many of us were back doing what we did before we were caught. But this time we were doing it better.”
According to Hisham al-Hashimi, the Baghdad-based analyst, the Iraqi government estimates that 17 of the 25 most important Islamic State leaders running the war in Iraq and Syria spent time in US prisons between 2004 and 2011. Some were transferred from American custody to Iraqi prisons, where a series of jailbreaks in the last several years allowed many senior leaders to escape and rejoin the insurgent ranks."

Deep torture

"U.S. Tortured and Killed Innocent People for the Specific Purpose of Producing False Propaganda"

It is instructive that all the analysis from the United States, from both the 'right' and the 'left'. is that torture is employed for the purposes of eliciting otherwise unavailable information that saves American lives from 'terrorism'.  The 'right' accepts this uncritically; the 'left' either points out - correctly - that torture produces unreliable information, or alleges that it is not worth the moral decay to the country (not to mention the cost to the American reputation).  Both share the assumption that there is information - facts - available from certain individuals that could save American lives.

Of course, this is utter nonsense.  The Global War On Terror is the creation of World Jewry specifically intended to increase Islamophobia in order to continue American protection for the supremacist Jewish project of building a Zionist empire across the Middle East.  Considering the degree of provocation caused by American violence it is remarkable that there is almost no real terrorism, at least coming from Muslims.  Almost all acts described as 'terrorism' are either:
  1. false flags; or
  2. self-defensive actions against violent - and legitimate - American or allied military or intelligence targets.
The CIA isn't stupid. Psychopathic, yes, but not stupid. The leaders of the CIA know that there are no facts available that would help fighting the Global War On Terror. On the contrary, the facts are not only useless, but positively dangerous, for the propaganda war that the American government is engaged in.

The entire premise of torture is that pressure can be applied to human beings to force them to give up their secrets, accurate information that could save American lives.  This is largely based on entertainment provided by, yes, 'Hollywood;' (i.e., the propaganda arm of World Jewry), with the ticking time bomb that can only be found through pressure imposed on a captured 'terrorist' being the classic example.  Of course, the reality is that the poor victims of torture are in extremis, and will do anything to resolve their situation.  If only they could figure out what to say that would satisfy the CIA torturers.

The trick of excellent torturing is to convey to the torture victim what parts of the propaganda background would end the torture.  It is a trick the thug torturers have never really mastered.  The tragedy is that neither the CIA torturers, nor their victims, are aware that the torture is not a fact-finding enterprise.  It is a propaganda-creation exercise.  Thus the answers that any victim is liable to give - various facts known to the victim, or at least things made up out of necessity on the false hope that any kind of fact might please the torturer - won't work.  Since the entire premise of the Global War On Terror is based on lies - the main lie being that the danger to Americans is from Islam and not from World Jewry - facts can never please the torturer.

Consider how the CIA acted, against how we would expect it to act if it were really engaged in a critical fact-finding exercise.  Instead of picking up people who might actually be real terrorists, it rounded up victims holus-bolus, based on mistakes in identity and, in many cases, no attempt to confirm identity at allThere has never been any effort made to attempt to confirm if many of these victims had any hope of producing facts connected to terrorism (this is also the case for the victims at Guantanamo Bay).  Once captured and tortured, at least some victims were killed, out of what appears to be mere carelessness and sloppiness.  If these people had real, valuable information, the last thing a real torture operation would want is for the victims to die. Even the high-value victims, people with verifiable connections to radical groups, were handled in the most incompetent way possible, driving them insane, and thus useless as conveyors of information, before any accurate information was obtained.

The CIA behaved exactly as you might expect it to behave if it didn't really want the facts, and just wanted an operation intended to produce propaganda. The basis of all the lies told by the CIA and American politicians and bureaucrats is to misrepresent the basis and purpose of the Global War On Terror.

Of course, the American 'left' can't mention any of this, as the truth is career-ending 'anti-Semitism'.  That is why nothing will change.

Pathological corruption

"Ukraine’s Made-in-USA Finance Minister" by Robert Parry.  She seems to be the perfect fit for a Ukrainian finance minister!

"Israel Bombs Syria … Again: Hits Agricultural Centers, Warehouses"  The start of Bibi's reelection campaign.  Related:  Bibi explains what - or who - was behind the mysterious collapse of the Iranian peace talks.

"Revealed thirty years on ... the secret role that America's Henry Kissinger played in the Bhopal tragedy"

"Yemen: Did U.S. Surveil Hostage Negotiators To Hit Hostage Takers?" The raid only makes sense if it was intended to free somebody who could not be ransomed, like a member of the US military.

"RJ Eskow & Jeffrey Sachs: Pathological Culture Of The Tribal Rich"  Just think how bad they must be if somebody as evil as Sachs calls them 'pathological'.  Of course, it is not a coincidence that these people run the world  - we've allowed them to build a system specifically set up so that sociopaths will rise to the top.

Being a thug

It is amusing that the mass resignations from the masthead at The New Republic - 'the distinguished liberal institution', seriously? - were intended to create a sense of outrage at the removal of two neocon assholes, yet led to a mass singing of "Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead" amongst the observers of American 'journalism'. Also, reminiscences of Marty Peretz, with no idea that the mysterious collapse of this 'liberal' magazine over the past few decades might just have something to do with it having been owned by a racist Jewish group supremacist warmonger.

"War by Media and the Triumph of Propaganda" It is the consistency and ubiquity of lying in the media which is remarkable.

"The Worst Industrial Disaster in the History of the World" by Siddhartha Deb.  Very well written.

"No climate-change deniers to be found in the reinsurance business"  The people whose job it is to know the facts - to avoid bankruptcy - have no doubts.

""Turk Stream": Huge Win for Turkey - Big Win For Russia - Historic Loss for EU"  And Turkey, with its thwarted goal of joining Europe, and a massive economy, leaves the Anglo-American-Zionist block to join the China-Russia-rest-of-the-world block.

"Putin expresses hope for permanent Ukraine ceasefire" Hollande of all people?  Hundreds of millions of people in Europe and they send the most hated guy in Russia (and France)?  This is really weird.

"A Reckless U.S. Rescue Attempt Kills Nearly Free Hostage"  If you assume the goal is to rescue a hostage surrounded by armed men, this kind of operation has a very low chance of success.  The outcome is almost always corpses.  So we have to assume there was another goal. 

Barking dog.  How could they possibly have known that the 'terrorists' would have access to high-tech equipment like guard dogs?

"In Light of Eric Garner".  Big picture:
"The system is doing what it is meant to do.  It teaches compliance, it teaches hopelessness and it identifies those who will not obey laws that don’t make sense (marijuana possession, for example), or who will fight or organize against the system and then it destroys them economically and often psychologically through practices like solitary confinement and prison rape.
The system will not change until those who want it to change have the raw power to force it to change, because it does serve the interests of its masters by destroying or marginalizing anyone who is actually a danger to oligarchical control of the system.
Race is an effective tool in this system, dividing the lower classes (and almost everyone is lower class now) against each other.  No matter how bad a poor white’s life is, well hey, he ain’t black.  He or she can feel superior to someone, can have someone to kick down at.
And understand this, most of what police are paid in is social coin: the right to demand immediate obedience and fuck people up; the solidarity of the blue line; the feeling of belonging and power, is what makes the job worth having for (probably most) of the people who are now attracted to it.
Being a thug; having social sanction to be a thug, is enjoyable to a lot of people. Since that’s what cops get to do, those are the sort of people who tend to be attracted to the job.  The police are the biggest toughest gang around, and belonging to them has most of the rewards of gang life, without the dangers of going to jail."

Two victims of World Jewry, guilty solely of the crime of putting up some resistance to Zionism.

Have you noticed how quickly Putin always has a plan B when the |Jews pull another destructive stunt in Europe.  His intelligence sources are excellent, as are his diplomats.  By the way, the only method of understanding things like 'leftist' German politicians expressing pure, undiluted Islamophobia, or Bulgarian politicians selling out the interests of their country, is the usual, bribery (deposits to offshore accounts) or blackmail.

Moral depravity

"Why did US, Canada and Ukraine vote against condemning Nazism at the UN?" 

"US, Israel are the only countries to oppose UN ban on weapons in outer space":

They assume you will give up

"Putin Kills "South Stream" Pipeline, Will Build New Massive Pipeline To Turkey Instead"  It is a consistent pattern that the Americans and their stooges take actions on the assumption that their opponents will have no options but to succumb and give up, yet Putin, and others (Syria, Iran, Venezuela, China, etc.) , continue to prove that this assumption is not true.  Now Bulgaria has permanently fucked itself.  "Who won? Who lost? You tell me!"

"Documents show how eBay’s Meg Whitman and Pierre Omidyar conspired to steal Craigslist’s secrets"  It is amazing that Crazy Pierre hasn't yet bought Pando just to shut it up in the way he is building First Look Media to constrain and control the alternative American media.

Siding with the Nazis against the anti-Nazis isn't just the new idea of Victoria Nuland:  "Athens 1944: Britain’s dirty secret"

"The Saudi King who fought the wrong wars"

"Dishonest Jerusalem Post Headline On UK Town’s Israeli Settlement Boycott. This is journalism?"

"Anti-Defamation League creates blacklist of groups that link Ferguson to Palestine" The idea that the people of Ferguson and Palestine are victims in the same struggle for human values scares the hell out of World Jewry.  Of course, the fact that the |Israelis are actually training American police thugs in their Jewish supremacist racist violent methods just underscores the point.
