Are Arabs and Muslims “wild men” because the Bible says they are?

My old friend was posting about Muslims, Arabs, and was relating present day crimes of terror in the Middle East to Genesis 16 by deeming all Arabs and Muslims “wild men” due to a wrongheaded, deterministic, misinterpreted “fulfillment” of a supposed “prophecy” found in Genesis 16:11-12…

The Road to 9/11

“This is an ambitious, meticulous examination of how U.S. foreign policy since the 1960s has led to partial or total cover-ups of past domestic criminal acts, including, perhaps, the catastrophe of 9/11. Peter Dale Scott, whose previous books have investigated CIA involvement in southeast Asia, the drug wars, and the Kennedy assassination, here probes how the policies of presidents since Nixon have augmented the tangled bases for the 2001 terrorist attack. Scott shows how America’s expansion into the world since World War II has led to momentous secret decision making at high levels. He demonstrates how these decisions by small cliques are responsive to the agendas of private wealth at the expense of the public, of the democratic state, and of civil society. He shows how, in implementing these agendas, U.S. intelligence agencies have become involved with terrorist groups they once backed and helped create, including al Qaeda.” Continue reading

Deal with the Devil: The FBI’s Secret Thirty-Year Relationship with a Mafia Killer

Interweaving exclusive interviews, more than 1,150 pages of once secret files, sixteen pages of black-and-white photos, and the same astounding capacity for understanding criminal networks that marked his investigations of al Qaeda in 1000 Years for Revenge, Cover Up and Triple Cross,, Deal with the Devil, the term DeVecchio’s trial judge used to describe the Bureau’s relationship with this Mafia sociopath, is a page-turning ground-breaking work of investigative journalism that reads like a Martin Scorsese film… Continue reading

Six NTSB Investigators Claim the Official TWA Flight 800 Crash Story Is a Lie

“A new film claims the official government report on the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 is an elaborate fabrication, but the most shocking part of the story is that charges are being leveled by some of the very investigators who put the report together. Six experts who appear in the film were members of the National Transportation Safety Board investigation team that concluded the crash was an accident, but they now claim they were silenced by their superiors. The movies, “TWA Flight 800″ will debut on EPIX TV next month, on the 17-year anniversary of the crash…” Continue reading

NSA domestic spying = old news

“It took me a few days to work up the nerve to phone William Binney. As someone already a “target” of the United States government, I found it difficult not to worry about the chain of unintended consequences I might unleash by calling Mr. Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency turned whistle-blower. He picked up. I nervously explained I was a documentary filmmaker and wanted to speak to him. To my surprise he replied: “I’m tired of my government harassing me and violating the Constitution. Yes, I’ll talk to you.” Continue reading

The Noble Lies – OK City and 9/11

The Noble Lie is necessary, Plato argues, in order to keep a stable social structure. In Plato’s mind The Noble Lie is a lie that’s fed to the masses to keep them under control and happy with their situation in life.

Plato did not believe most people were smart enough to look after their own and society’s best interest. The few smart people of the world needed to lead the rest of the flock, Plato said. And The Noble Lie had to continue. Continue reading

John McCain, Lindsey Graham, John Kerry, and Barack Obama fund, arm, and train al Qaeda and its associates in Syria

“Happily for the busy lunatics who rule over us, we are permanently the United States of Amnesia. We learn nothing because we remember nothing.” ~ Gore Vidal

“It should by now be generally accepted that the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan on Christmas Eve 1979 was deliberately provoked by the United States. In his memoir published in 1996, the former CIA director Robert Gates made it clear that the American intelligence services began to aid the mujahideen guerrillas not after the Soviet invasion, but six months before it. In an interview two years later with Le Nouvel Observateur, President Carter’s national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski proudly confirmed Gate’s assertions. “According to the official version of history,” Brzezinski said, “CIA aid to the mujahideen began during 1980, that’s to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan. But the reality, kept secret until now, is completely different: on 3 July 1979 President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And on the same day I wrote a note to the president in which I explained that in mu opinion this aid would lead to a Soviet military intervention.” ~ Chalmers Johnson Continue reading

Kids can’t make gun noises in schools but the authorities can use guns while running full scale, realistic, and very scary active shooter drills in schools?

“WAVY-TV reports the 7-year-old boy was suspended for two days for a violation of the Suffolk school system’s zero-tolerance policy on weapons. He was playing with another student in class Friday at Driver Elementary. He heeded a teacher’s order to stop.

“The boy’s father says he believes school officials overreacted in suspending his son.
Suffolk Public Schools spokeswoman Bethanne Bradshaw says a pencil is considered a weapon when it’s pointed at someone in a threatening way and gunlike noises are made…
