This amazing movie with CIA docs proves that DA Jim Garrison solved the case when he said elements of our CIA killed JFK, aided by some in the media before Dallas, & protected by all after.. It proves the govt & media illegally sabotaged Garrison’s winnable case, It reveals how the CIA’s ‘Project Mockingbird’ infiltrated media to create fake news for perpetual fake wars. An unforgetable film!

I-Team: Film focuses on alleged media complicity of JFK assassination

Long John Barbour interview:

Joe Giambrone

I’m not only referring to Trump’s tards (as Democrats would have instantly presumed) but to an equally malignant demographic: the smug, arrogant, pseudo-intellectual. These people think they know what they do not know and are thus rendered incapable of thought, incapacitated, intellectually stunted. Those types make great Nazis, in fact, and are arguably half of the voting population.

They are the Peace Laureate’s defenders and cheerleaders, Hillary’s people, corporate comedians like Samantha Bee, Zionists like Bill Maher, listeners of NPR, and readers of Alternet. These lobotomized partisans only oppose war when it is convenient, when a Republican is in office. Not when the warmonger is a Democrat, and that is disgusting hypocrisy. They have pushed the nation toward moral bankruptcy, a rampaging duopoly of blustering hypocrites talking around the crimes. They don’t notice nor even care about the bombs Barack Obama drops, nor the shiploads of arms he sells to the world’s most despicable tyrants.

How to understand such people?

They aren’t lacking in a worldview, and that’s the problem. Ideology supplants honest analysis, full stop. In this case, their only apparent ideology was revealed to be that they believe themselves to be a “lesser evil” than their opponents; that’s all. Clinton offered nothing except that her last name wasn’t Trump.

Constantly reinforced with finely streamlined propaganda that omits damning facts while pretending to investigate, this modern propaganda provides the illusion of knowledge, not the real thing. The model here is the ‘limited hangout.’ The pseudo-intellectual Democrats are permitted to know something about the topics, just enough to be brought to heel. They are manipulated at a slightly higher level than their sworn enemies, the willfully ignorant dumbasses who don’t care. A better brand of puppet is thus manufactured via top-shelf propaganda (CIA, NPR, State Department, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.). Few readers are sophisticated enough to challenge the claims of these organs, and so even nonsense can pass as factual and accurate most of the time—often all that is needed is one unnamed source.

The Putin Ate My Baby

As the alleged “Russian hacking” fiasco has shown, no credible evidence is even required to sell a new Cold War to Americans.

It’s easy to show that most of the coverage of the ‘Russians hacked the DNC’ story is propaganda and not journalism at all. Journalistic ethics require a real journalist to print the other side of the story and to present it to readers so that they can determine for themselves what to believe. Julian Assange and Wikileaks are the other side of that story, and they have been clear and consistent that the files they published weren’t “hacked” at all but leaked by a “disgusted” DNC insider. Any “news” story that omits that crucial part of the narrative is untrustworthy propaganda, the sort you’d expect living in the Soviet Union (ironically).

“Journalists should…

– Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.


– Support the open and civil exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.”
Society of Professional Journalists, Code of Ethics

The complete collapse of journalistic ethics across the spectrum, in the rush to demonize Russia in lockstep with the government, is arguably a far more serious concern than whether some Russian hacker found his way to some emails. The complete brainwashing of a superpower is frightening no matter how it is spun. Anti-Russian hysteria has been the norm as Washington surrounds Russia with NATO bases and destabilizes Russia’s allies, including Ukraine and Syria. These are provocations with body counts. They are not in the interest of the people parroting the official propaganda. The Great Game of imperial one-upsmanship benefits the war industry, not the common people.

It may end life on earth.

Granted, most of the content that western media provides is accurate but incomplete by design. Omission is the staple technique for those who would present biased narratives. At the large daily papers, omission is a high art form.

As the old propaganda system melts down, to much commotion, everyone needs to stay on top of the story. Western media has been exposed as corrupt, untrustworthy, and in a hostile war to influence the public mind.

No one really knows whom to trust anymore. It is a paranoid age, where even your friends lie to you daily by posting nonsensical memes based on no sourcing whatsoever. Laziness is at the heart of the dissemination: convenience culture (a la Idiocracy). No one bothers to check the veracity of their claims, to take responsibility for the information they put out into the world, although this may be turning around among a few.

We must all be journalists and demand corroboration: multiple credible sources. We must all be skeptical of news organizations, all news sources, trusting nothing without a thorough analysis. The specific phrasing matters. We must stop tolerating obvious gibberish, the fake news flooding Facebook that has no redeeming value. Noise drowns out the truth.

Real journalists back up their claims with extensive sourcing. Do you?

They literally go to the DNC for their debate questions to ask Donald Trump! Are they a branch of the Clinton campaign? Too lazy to do any journalism themselves? Did this break any election laws? Should it?

Cozy with CNN, silencing journalists & pinning it on Putin

They keep on validating what the extreme right is claiming. Hillbots should be too ashamed to vote for this witch.

CNN is looking for questions. Please send some topical/interesting ones.”

WASHINGTON POST implicated too:

Aside from CNN, the DNC also provided content for Washington Post columnist, Dana Milbank, after he asked for help researching a column piece that was eventually titled: ‘The Ten Plagues of Trump’.

And they knew that Bill Clinton’s tax monkeying was what benefitted Trump directly!

I know very little about this, but from a quick sweep it looks like passive-loss relief was a core component of Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax plan,writes Jeremy Brinster, a former DNC research staffer.

And more and more and more…

In May 2016, DNC Communications Director, Luis Miranda, threatened to “silence” ‘Morning Joe’ host Joe Scarborough by complaining to his bosses over some of Scarborough’s comments on air.

F**king Joe claiming the system is rigged, party against him, we need to complain to their producer,” wrote Miranda in May to DNC’s Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach.

KAKISTOCRACY.

After Attacks on Muslims, Many Ask: Where Is the Outpouring?

Where was the global outrage? Where was the outpouring that came after the same terrorist groups unleashed horror in Brussels andhere in Paris? In a supposedly globalized world, do nonwhites, non-Christians and non-Westerners count as fully human?

Obama’s “Counterterrorism Center” feeds info to Associated Propaganda to get their version out before independent outlet can publish.

Spy Agency Stole Scoop From Media Outlet And Handed It To The AP

NY Times jammed its claws into this meat too with a very strangely misleading set of numbers. In the first paragraph — the one everyone reads — they claim:

“of whom about 5,000 have been placed on one or more watch lists”

 Then, in the 4th paragraph, where fewer than half of readers are likely still reading, given the data presented at the top…

“Over all, the number of people listed in the center’s database of terrorism suspects surpassed one million in June 2013, the documents said. Of those, approximately 680,000 were on the watch lists,”

Say what?

They claim 5,000 are on watch lists. They claim 680,000 are on watch lists.

Sense?

The Times is downplaying the severity by misleading readers at the top of the story.  And it’s blatant. It makes no sense at all, except as propaganda.

Could it be fuzzy math???

Glorious Martial Law?

Joe Giambrone

 

“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
(Who watches the watchers?)”
–Juvenal

Are we allowed to talk about martial law, the militarization of police, and the complete shutdown of cities on command?  Or will that get the glorious law enforcers to storm and kick in our own doors now?  Just what are the rules in effect today?  Just what sort of precedent is being set here right before our eyes?

It was your commoner citizens who located the Boston bombing suspect after finding him hiding in a boat.  This was after the martial law decree had arbitrarily been lifted, and it was now ordered permissible to go out in one’s backyard again.

Is martial law the answer to sticky incidents with fleeing suspects?  Can this now apply to any suspects or any manhunt in the United States, anywhere, for any reason?

One might argue that clearing the streets under military decree is very useful for a particular purpose when pursuing a suspect: allowing a “free fire zone” of automatic .40 caliber hollow point gunfire, the known preference of the new “Homeland Security” apparatus.  So what precedents are we setting now, in terms of rewriting the entire law enforcement paradigm, arguably a much more serious concern than a single 19 year old bleeding suspect.  Yeah.  What the fuck actually happened last week in Boston?

“Governor Deval Patrick took an unprecedented security step, asking people in Boston, Watertown, and several other nearby communities — totaling a million people — to “shelter in place” — stay at home behind locked doors and open up only to police officers with proper identification.”
Boston Globe

“Asking?”  Martial law is just a friendly request, and the Globe dutifully disseminates.  CBS News counts “thousands of heavily armed law enforcement officers and scores of military-style tactical vehicles,” but is quick to have an expert standing by to justify it as “perfect sense.”  Just perfect.  All that for one bleeding, injured 19 year old.

One wonders how many tank divisions and predator squadrons might have been called in if this was one of the much-fabled “cells” we hear so much about on TV.  I’m not disputing the need to capture the suspect, an obviously dangerous person, given what he is accused of doing.  I am disputing the federal intervention, the military suspension of the Constitution and the militarization of local policing – all greatly warned about numerous times as we descend into outright authoritarianism, clamoring for the federal troops and toys to come and save us.  Not only were the public politely “asked” to stay within their homes, authorities also pushed the “media back further and further from the action unfolding (CBS).”  This bodes well for a free and open society.

In the midst of all this bombing hysteria the House of Representatives (sic) passed CISPA, with more government/private sector spying.  Less accountability for the mishandling of your private data, and more total information awareness totalitarianism is ensured.  That is the direction that every single one of these bills travels, bar none.  Nearly every act of Congress concerning security of any sort increases government and corporate surveillance powers, diminishes accountability, oversight and the public’s right to challenge their own surveillance by authorities both public and private.  We are living more and more in The Matrix, with 4th Amendment protections now considered “quaint” and of a bygone era that no longer has any relevance today.

Praise for surveillance cameras has been noted since Boston with calls for more public surveillance, more facial recognition, more integration of things like traffic cameras and license plate readers.

“I think CCTV cameras are much more needed in urban areas.”
-Rep. Peter King (R), New York, House Committee on Homeland Security

Of course he does.  He thought that before this latest photo op.  The answer is always more security, more surveillance, more intrusion, and less individual protection from government and from the private corporate sector.

A tremendous catharsis overwhelmed Boston with the announced capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, as if that explained and ended everything.  When you enact martial law with thousands of machinegun wielding stormtroopers and armored personnel carriers in the streets, and then make them go away, the people will be grateful.  No doubt.

But this is where the story should be entering a new phase of discovery, intense investigation and disclosure.  Sorry Boston; this is far from the end.

It was the FBI, apparently, who had monitored the two Chechen brothers for years, according to their own mother.  Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva claims the FBI had contacted her and her sons repeatedly over the past 5 years.  She even claims that the two were “controlled” by the Feds and “set up” in some kind of sting operation.  If that sounds baseless, well we have already had an admission by FBI that they “interviewed” the older brother Tamerlan back in 2011.  Further, the Wall Street Journal reports that this FBI interview was in response to a “request by the Russian government.

Scratch the vinyl.  Say what?
