text American Regulatory and Intel Agencies Rotten to the Core Ted Snider via cyd, Thursday, Feb 1 2018, 8:26pm
Indeed, as the following story and history verifies, FBI, CIA and NSA crimes against the NATION/people are plentiful, particularly destroying evidence that could compromise their fellow criminals in high places, if not the entire cancerous deep state itself.

Meanwhile, these nefarious agencies think nothing of invading the privacy and monitoring innocent CITIZENS, all of which information remains on record; now note the lame NSA excuse -- deleted to “free-up space.” Pathetic and laughable as the days of 10mg hard drives and floppy discs are long gone, notwithstanding that 'space' has never been an issue for these agencies at the time of the intentional deletions -- who are these CRIMINAL clowns trying to kid?

text China's Long Profitable Digital March Pepe Escobar via gus, Thursday, Feb 1 2018, 1:32am
China's strongest weapon is business, pure and simple. It's a winner as any half-brain could determine. But for American quarter-brains it needs to be explained. Business is mutually beneficial the way China plays it with foreign nations everyone wins/benefits though of course China ensures it comes out on top, which is not begrudged by the nations it does business with. Why? Simply due to the fact that other nations profit in many ways, infrastructure programs and economic development. Now compare to America's foreign policies/relations which reduces to lies, war, exploitation and self-interest and you have a losing formula, plain to see.

'Great' for criminals, liars and cheats image US Now Surpasses Cayman Islands to Become Second Largest Tax Haven on Earth Julia Conley via julie, Wednesday, Jan 31 2018, 12:52am
"This is not a ranking in which the U.S. wants to be number one or even number two. We have one of the strongest economies and one of the most secret. It's a perfect recipe for attracting the proceeds of crime, corruption, and tax evasion." (story and 1 image)

Australia is part of the "five eyes" network of spying nations which were formed primarily by the NSA so host nations could spy on local populations without the need of warrants and to circumvent local laws; it is/was illegal for US agencies, for instance, to spy on Americans, so in order for agencies to circumvent local laws they spied from other compliant nations, a despicable dirty trick to say the least.

US VP, Mike Pence -- bigoted racist and religious extremist image Evangelical Christian and U.S. VP Mike Pence Spits in the Eye of Judaism Amit Gvaryahu via jude, Monday, Jan 29 2018, 6:11pm
The author has done an excellent job of analysing Pence's recent speech in Jerusalem. The author analysed the secondary layer discourse, which most often transmits the real message, usually subliminally, as the focus of the conscious mind is on the primary layer discourse. The REAL: message is an eye-opener and should be a shock to all Jews as it denigrates their faith, or at best places it in a subservient relationship with Christianity. (story and 1 image)

text Plain to see -- the World’s Leading Terrorist and Civilian Killing State is AMERICA Editorial, Sunday, Jan 28 2018, 9:24pm
How many nations on the planet today have a ‘perpetual war’ strategy for world hegemony? ONE, AMERICA! Arrogant neocon clowns actually published the fact in the PNAC document for the world to read, and what a thoroughly psychopathic document it is.

Early photo of Ziggy Brzezinski advising CIA asset Bin Laden image The INFORMATION/propaganda WAR -- the continuous war of our Time jake, Saturday, Jan 27 2018, 9:07pm
The masses are often distracted by physical war with its bombs, planes, ships and human casualties, very dramatic. However, history notes that prior to any military, confrontational war the common population/herd must be made compliant and accept that the leaders of the warring nation are fighting for some mythical cause such as freedom, liberty, justice, against ‘terror’ etc. It becomes clear that propaganda is the essential supporting factor behind all military wars, as without it the people would not fight or hesitate to fight; the Nazis perfected this method as the German population like other developed nations were highly educated, so (false) information became a necessity for criminal states.

Billionaire investor George Soros launched a scathing attack on tech giants at the Davos summit on Thursday, calling them monopolies that could be manipulated by authoritarians to subvert democracy.

text Doomsday Clock Now '2 Minutes to Midnight' Jessica Corbett via james, Friday, Jan 26 2018, 9:25am
In response to rising nuclear tensions and concerns about inadequate action to address the climate crisis, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced Thursday the hands of the Doomsday Clock have been moved and it is now just two minutes midnight, a signal to the world that international scientists and policy experts are increasingly worried about the likeliness of global catastrophe.

text John Pilger Interview: Mainstream Media and Imperial Power Dennis J Bernstein and Randy Credico via gail, Thursday, Jan 25 2018, 10:03pm
Naturally, John Pilger is here expressing his opinion, alone.

As a group of highly specialised young (millennials) with various professional skills ranging from computer science (expert coders and reverse engineers) to mass media/communications, marketing, PR, journalism, advertising, to name only a few areas of expertise -- we also have a group of expert hackers that do not have degrees or orthodox qualifications -- now paid extremely well by Big Tech in California for their services, which I would emphasise does not preclude them from their favourite pursuit -- HACKING, which is more lucrative than their front jobs. Indeed, as Pilger states when he refers to young journalists, we are cynical and for very good reason, as we have individually removed the superimposed psychological and digital chains of slavery which we were insidiously exposed to since we could think.

tzar_bomba.jpg image Nuclear War: A Thousand Buttons Conn Hallinan via darcy, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 11:45pm
When President Donald Trump bragged that his nuclear “button” was bigger and more efficient than North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s “button,” he was perpetuating the myth that the leaders of nuclear-armed nations control their weapons. But you do not have to be Trump, Kim, Vladimir Putin, Theresa May, Xi Jinping, Narendra Modi, Mamnoon Hussain, or Benjamin Netanyahu to push that “button.” There are thousands of buttons and thousands of people who can initiate a nuclear war.

flagssoldier.jpg image An American Officer’s Path to Dissent Maj. Danny Sjursen via jack, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 9:45pm
For a while there, I was a real star. High up in my class at West Point, tough combat deployments in two wars, a slew of glowing evaluations, even a teaching assignment back at the military academy. I inhabited a universe most only dream of: praised, patted and highly respected by everyone in my life system and viewed as a brave American soldier. It’s a safe, sensible spot. For most, that’s enough. Too bad it was all bunk. Absurdity incarnate. (story and 1 image)

text How Political Slogans Work -- “Make America Great Again” lex, Wednesday, Jan 24 2018, 8:42am
Slogans are usually open-ended and inherently meaningless, however, they effectively play on the subjective imagination of those receptive to them. For instance, remember “light at the end of the tunnel,” used extensively to prolong the illegal, losing, Vietnam war, which resulted in an increasing death toll on both sides.

PDF Document The Court Document Behind the 'Memo' Causing all the Hysteria in Washington Joe Hoft via james, Tuesday, Jan 23 2018, 9:24pm
The 'memo' causing so much media hysteria and turmoil in Washington is a distillation of the material contents of a recently declassified court document, which states plainly that American regulatory and Intel agencies were functioning outside (breaking) the LAW. Of course this is no surprise to any aware citizen. Who could forget the now infamous statement of president Nixon when he appeared on national television in defense of his clearly criminal Watergate actions and declared, "when the president does it [commits a crime] it's not Illegal!" Well bunk to that absurd claim. (story and 1 attached file)

text Turkey Launches Airstrikes Against U.S.-Backed Kurdish Forces Julia Conley via jaxie, Monday, Jan 22 2018, 4:42am
Further to the future breakup of NATO and possibly the EU one NATO member has taken military action against another. The reason? Nations are like people and each has their own interests to pursue and protect, western Europe has little in common with eastern Europe. Turkey's interests do not conform with the US's current interests of DESPERATELY attempting to continue the Syrian conflict via Kurdish proxy forces rather than IS, al-Qaeda, and al-Nusra, which paid fighters all failed in their commission to disrupt, destabilise Syria and force Assad out of power. America's desperate hope is that SOMEHOW the Kurds would succeed, whereas reality dictates not a snow-flakes chance in hell.

Eric 'sweetie' Schmidt image Thought Police of the 21st Century Chris Hedges via claire, Sunday, Jan 21 2018, 9:27pm
The abolition of net neutrality and the use of algorithms by Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter to divert readers and viewers from progressive, left-wing and anti-war sites, along with demonizing as foreign agents the journalists who expose the crimes of corporate capitalism and imperialism, have given the corporate state the power to destroy freedom of speech. Any state that accrues this kind of power will use it. And for that reason I traveled last week to Detroit to join David North, the chairperson of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site, in a live-stream event calling for the formation of a broad front to block an escalating censorship while we still have a voice.

The main function of the National Security Administration is to collect the dirt on members of the house and senate, the staffs, principal contributors, and federal judges. The dirt is used to enforce silence about the crimes of the security agencies.

text Alternative Media Journalists Continue to Support the Illusion sarah, Sunday, Jan 21 2018, 8:31pm
An otherwise good investigative journalist titles his latest story thus: "Trump’s Plan B for Syria: Occupation and Intimidation.” I mean really Mr Whitney, it is established fact that all presidents post JFK serve minority elite interests and are therefore captured PUPPETS.

Regarding foreign policy the elite status quo hasn’t missed a beat since Bush senior was president. The claim that Trump, who clearly knows jack shit about anything foreign, makes plans or decisions is preposterous. It is a major disappointment that any knowledgeable journalist would attribute foreign policy decisions or “plans” to dunce/stooge president Trump. ALL foreign policy decisions are clearly issued from the deep state or shadow government -- consistency over a period of presidents clearly indicates that REALITY.
