Google, your data suppression methods are obvious, easily recorded, abysmally inept and generally pathetic.

The simple fact that you actively engage in suppressing this and other alternative news sites means we have won and TRUTH will prevail in the end.

text Enforcing War Reparations Ends Wars for Profit jess, Wednesday, Dec 20 2017, 9:12pm
A recently published article alerts readers to the reality that the USA, the leading war mongering, civilian killing nation on earth, avoids the responsibility of its grossly illegal and devastatingly destructive war crimes by shifting consequences and costs onto other nations; Germany for one, was forced to absorb most of the millions of displaced refugees from the war-torn Middle East, notwithstanding that the USA and Saudi Arabia were/are DIRECTLY responsible for the refugee crisis the entire world is now facing.

text US War on ISIS Is the Biggest Lie Since the 2003 Iraq Invasion Darius Shahtahmasebi via gail, Wednesday, Dec 20 2017, 7:18pm
On November 13, 2017, the BBC dropped a bombshell report that exposed how the U.S. cut a secret deal with “hundreds” of ISIS fighters and their families to leave the Syrian city of Raqqa under the “gaze of the U.S. and British-led coalition and Kurdish-led forces who control the city.” The convoys reportedly included some of ISIS’ “most notorious” members, as well as its foreign fighters and tonnes of weapons and ammunition.

trumpnukes.jpg image Tenuous Bindings that Hold Large Societies Together justin, Wednesday, Dec 20 2017, 2:01am
Large societies are held together by shared value systems and beliefs, however, these ideological for the most part ‘bindings’ begin to fray when, due to poor leadership, entire societies begin to unravel, as is occurring under Trump in the United States. Trump is a pathological liar, extremely flawed personality and thoroughly self-seeking; he is oblivious to the fact that his absurdist transparent lies and pathological behavior are undermining the very foundations of America itself and subverting American society. His latest foray into the autocratic absurd is a word/expression ban list, which ‘decree’ he has issued to state entities to follow. (story and 1 image)

text CIA Tips Russia About planned ISIS Attack on St. Peterburg darcy, Monday, Dec 18 2017, 4:40am
A very interesting story (link below) considering that IS/ISIL/ISIS was jointly created, trained, armed and supplied by the CIA and the Saudis, fact, if you care to research the matter, particularly the CIA training ground in Jordan.

text Nearly 20 State AGs to Sue FCC for Putting Corporate Profits Over Consumers Jake Johnson via claire, Saturday, Dec 16 2017, 10:04pm
Adding to the growing backlash among the public and members of Congress against the FCC's party-line vote on Thursday to repeal net neutrality protections, nearly 20 state attorneys general have lined up to sue the FCC, calling the Republican-controlled agency's move a violation of the law and a serious "threat to the free exchange of ideas."

The image below says it all, money and more money not only determines political outcomes in the USA, it determines policies, ensuring of course that giant corporations/banks/media continue to reap the highest percentage of available wealth while average people are sent to needless wars for the profit of the FEW and are forced to eat shit at home while unrepresentative others live high on the hog.

text “Knowledge is Power,” and that is Precisely Why the FCC is Attempting to Choke/Censor the Internet justin, Friday, Dec 15 2017, 7:06pm
Any attempt by a government self-styled ‘authority’ to interfere with the free flow of information on any medium is an enemy of the people, a self-evident Truth. It is the duty of every freedom loving, responsible citizen to oppose all such attempts to stifle free speech and opposing views no matter how bizarre, people are intelligent enough to filter codswallop and crap for themselves, and yes, even whackos like Alex Jones and 'lizards rule the world,' David Ike, should be allowed to have their demented say. Real knowledge is power indeed, not the crap/propaganda that is disseminated by the lying, CFR directed, mass media, owned by vested interests.

text Merry Privacy Devoid Xmas -- The Surveillance State on Steroids John W. Whitehead via jane, Thursday, Dec 14 2017, 10:28pm
"Section 702 gives the government access to the very content of your conversations (phone calls, text messages, video chats), your photographs, your emails. As Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., warned, “This is not just who you send it to, but what’s in it.”

This reach on citizens without the need of warrants is clearly over the top; however, as has been known from generation to generation, freedom is never bestowed, it is won from bitter and hard fought struggle, history is my witness. So is a slave fit for his/her chains or is America really free? A rhetorical question, as America is clearly a nation of spineless SLAVES, today's Big Brother REALITY is my witness!

text The Media, Friend or Foe? lex, Wednesday, Dec 13 2017, 8:52pm
The mass media today, which includes large IT players such as Google and Facebook, has veered dramatically from its ideal, IMPARTIALITY. In fact bias is the order of the day to the point of overt censorship of the free flow of information -- attempts to eliminate internet neutrality for instance. Vested interests -- primarily the CFR -- have harnessed the mass media in order to steer and shape public opinion/consciousness. The corporate private interests that own it outright of course utilise it to further their own private interests, which is to be expected if no mitigating factors exist.

text What is Truth? fait accompli, Pilate the Post Modernist jude, Monday, Dec 11 2017, 11:08pm
One of the most amusing or profound, depending on your pov, incidents in the New Testament is Pilate’s questioning of Jesus at his trial. Pilate plainly wins out on the matter of Truth, as his now famous question is also the answer; that is why he didn’t wait for Jesus to respond, he declared him innocent. It (what is truth?) was a fait accompli in Pilate’s mind. However, the Jews would have their way, the rest is fiction or history for believers, notwithstanding that everything is a constructed fiction according to Post Modernists -- Pilate’s point -- that believe that the decoder/interpreter creates reality, though an entirely subjective ‘reality,’ which of course reduces objectivity to subjective self-deception.

donaldtrumpyoutube.jpg image The SHOCK of the STUPID and Divorced from Reality pat, Sunday, Dec 10 2017, 9:28pm
Prior to Trump the only leaders that made absurd outlandish divorced from reality remarks were the leaders of North Korea, though as we know, most of those claims and remarks were ignored due to their implausibility and ‘out-there’ nature. However, when a US president engages in ridiculous claims, lies, morbid sensitivity and ‘out-there’ language, the effect is shock as people expect those ‘keepers' surrounding the president to explain things and moderate any pathological, volatile irrational outbursts -- but as the world is aware, no such moderation exists in relation to Trump. Trump, though completely enslaved by the deep state, is allowed to take the prize for the world’s leading imbecile leader, the deep state knows he has no effect whatsoever on their agenda and plans. But what of the rest of the world? (story and 1 image)
