That Time CNN Staged a Fake Interview With a Syrian Child for War Propaganda

0

by Caitlin Johnstone, The Anti Media:

Imagine if you and some friends wandered into a completely dark room together for some reason. You’ve never been in this room before, and you can’t see a thing.

Now imagine one of your friends says he can see everything in the room perfectly, and starts describing the different things that he sees in a confident, assertive tone of voice. You know for a fact that there’s no light in the room, so you are doubtful that your friend is able to see any better than you are, but one by one your other friends start talking about the objects in the room as though what he is saying is true. After a while your group starts telling you you’re crazy and evil because you remain skeptical of your first friend’s ability to see the room in pitch darkness, despite his assertive tone of voice and despite the fact that everyone else believes it.

Mueller’s FBI Lied to Shut Down Congressional Investigation of Stolen Stealth Defense Technology, Then Comey’s Defense Firm Made Billions

from True Pundit:

It wasn’t bad enough that the FBI under Robert Mueller’s leadership shut down its investigation of stolen U.S. STEALTH defense technology to protect Lockheed Martin while James Comey was Lockheed’s top lawyer.

The FBI next did the unthinkable: Lied to Congressional investigators. And lied big.

For nearly four years the FBI investigated the international theft of STEALTH defense technology from a small Florida marine company that invented an ingenious way to help protect Navy ships and nuclear ballistic submarines from being detected on enemy radar and sonar.

‘Melencolia I’. A Graphic Sermon by Albrecht Dürer

0

by Hugo Salinas Price, Plata:

This print, one of the four greatest engravings by Albrecht Dürer, is actually a sermon by Dürer, in graphic form.

First we note that the central figure, a seated angel, is scowling in hatred at the light and the rainbow in the background. The seated angel is none other than Lucifer, the brightest and loveliest of the angels of the Lord, who has been expelled from Heaven for rebellion against God. The light and the rainbow to which he directs his scowling visage, represent God’s Truth emanating from Heaven, and the rainbow represents humanity’s Hope of everlasting life.

Why Are We Siding With al-Qaeda?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Last week, I urged the Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to stop protecting al-Qaeda in Syria by demanding that the Syrian government leave Idlib under al-Qaeda control. While it may seem hard to believe that the US government is helping al-Qaeda in Syria, it’s not as strange as it may seem: our interventionist foreign policy increasingly requires Washington to partner up with “bad guys” in pursuit of its dangerous and aggressive foreign policy goals.

Does the Trump Administration actually support al-Qaeda and ISIS? Of course not. But the “experts” who run Trump’s foreign policy have determined that a de facto alliance with these two extremist groups is for the time being necessary to facilitate the more long-term goals in the Middle East. And what are those goals? Regime change for Iran.

‘Resistance’ runs amok in the US Deep Throat War

by Pepe Escobar, Asia Times:

Bob Woodward’s book and the ‘resistance’ op-ed look increasingly like a sophisticated psy-ops scheme and a prelude for a ‘Deep State’ coup

We now live in a psy-ops world. The latest Deep Throat War in Washington bears all the elements of an epic of the genre. Fear: Trump in the White House, by Bob Woodward, who remains an associate editor at the Washington Post, will be released next week, on the 17th anniversary of 9/11.

Swiss “Socialist Paradise” Approves ‘Universal Basic Income’ Of $2,750 A Month

from ZeroHedge:

Two years after the people of Switzerland overwhelmingly voted against establishing an “unconditional” Universal Basic Income (i.e. ‘free money’ for every man, woman and child in the country of roughly 8 million), one village has decided to go ahead with the experiment.

Per Bloomberg, the village of Rheinau, which is situated on the banks of the Rhine river roughly an hour’s train ride from Zurich, is planning to hand out 2,500 francs ($2,750) a month to every inhabitant. But for the program to move forward, more than half of the village’s residents had to say yes.
