War, Politics and the Economic Crisis: Why We Barely Know What’s Going On – Danny Schechter

(GlobalResearch) – Defending America covertly has become an ongoing theme for one more TV series. Salute the flag and praise NBC (GE) for its latest effort to persuade the population to accept the kind of secret operations that now drive the war in Afghanistan. Their latest show is called “Covert Affairs” and airs on the patriotically named USA Network.

This fiction is based on faction, glamorizing the work of our unaccountable CIA at home and at war with Piper Perabo who has been promoted from dancing barmaid in Coyote Ugly into a CIA trainee “who is suddenly thrust into the inner sanctum of the agency after being promoted to field operative.”

The dumbed down formula is tried and true , showcasing what TV pros call “the three S’s:” Sex, Spies, and Sensationalism. Continue reading

Video: Quayle – EXTREME ALERT — Gulf Coast Evacuation Contingency Plans Soon to Go Operational

(TheIntelHub) – Steve Quayle has basically confirmed what we have reported and added some very important information to the equation. People really need to look into this, especially if you are in the Gulf. The Intel Hub is asking any chemist to get a hold of us or get a hold of Mr. Quayle as soon as possible. A chemist may be able to predict when these evacuations may happen. I am also asking anyone from Louisiana to contact me immediately. I did not post this to cause fear in anyway. Everyone should look into this on their own and make an educated decision on their next move. The Intel Hub is not telling people to get out of the Gulf, that is a decision that each individual must make on their own. Continue reading

T-Shirt Critical of Hitler and Gun Control Banned by eBay

(PaulWatson) – A T-shirt that warns against how dictators like Hitler used gun control to disarm their victims has been sensationally banned by eBay after the online auction giant labeled the garment “Nazi propaganda” despite the fact that it carries an anti-Nazi message.

The “Mass Murderers Agree – Gun Control Works” Infowars T-shirt features images of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, all dictators who ensured that their target populations were disarmed and vulnerable before killing them by the millions.

We received the following email from eBay entitled, “eBay Listing Removed: Hateful or Discriminatory”. Continue reading

(Aletho) – Turkey is Media’s Latest Target for Alleged ‘Terror’ Ties

The Israeli raid on the Gaza flotilla that resulted in the deaths of eight Turkish citizens and one Turkish-American has led Israel and its supporters to argue that the Turkish government and a prominent Turkish humanitarian organization are “terrorist” sympathizers with ill intentions toward Israel and the United States. In a series of articles, the U.S. corporate press has joined in. Read More Here

(Mahdibray) – Israel’s Embargo is about Economic Warfare, Not Security

The embargo of Gaza – what a humanitarian atrocity! Even worse is the bogus justification for the embargo. We’ve been told over and over again that the embargo was for Israeli security purposes now we find out through the internal Israeli documents that the real justification is to create economic warfare against the people of Gaza. What a travesty! Check out the piece below. Read More Here

(Uruknet) – License to Kill – Obama blurs the line between warfare and summary execution

Last week U.N. investigator Philip Alston delivered a report on “targeted killings” in which the U.S. government plays a starring role. Under a policy secretly initiated by George W. Bush and expanded by Obama, the CIA and the Joint Special Operations Command track and kill people, including U.S. citizens, based on their alleged ties to Al Qaeda or its allies. The killings, typically carried out by missiles fired from drone aircraft, dangerously blur the line between warfare and summary execution. Read More Here

(Uruknet) – Video: The Banality of Occupation – The Only Democracy?

While the world has been rightfully focused on the Gaza Flotilla, the banality of occupation goes on. In this video (originally posted on Coteret), a twelve year old boy is arrested in Bil’in. An international activist and the boy’s mother plead with the soldiers to release him, but the soldiers ignore them completely, with the complete power of the occupier. The child was apparently working in his olive groves with his family. As the boy is taken away, you can see, not far away at all, the buildings of the nearest settlement. Just another day in Palestine. Video Link Here

(GlobalResearch) – Rachel Corrie and Furkan Dogan: Murdered American Heroes

In the past seven years, two Americans were unjustly, maliciously and violently killed by the Israel “Defense” Forces (IDF). Both had unwittingly given their lives for Gaza, and in the aftermath of their murders, their government forsook them.

Their names were oft-repeated—if not by follow citizens, then by citizens of the world—as events surrounding Israel’s horrific assault on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla were discussed. These two young and brave individuals were Rachel Corrie and Furkan Dogan. Read More Here

Israel has been pursuing its cry-wolf policy since its inception. Successive Israeli regimes have followed the same tactic of presenting their own nation as the victim of aggression.

(NBCP) – Video: Palestine/Gaza: The Siege

The three year old siege on the Gaza Strip and its 1.5 million inhabitants is a testament to the Israeli regime’s disregard of law, decency and morality. This siege amounts to collective punishment, an action outlawed by various conventions and humanitarian laws. This is not to mention the suffering and humanitarian crisis caused by this law. This siege has been disgracefully condoned by the “international community” and justified by the “free world” as a measure that safegurads the security of the Israeli regime. Continue reading
