Asa Winstanley, How Israeli spies are flooding Facebook and Twitter

Asa Winstanley Israel secretly operates a troll army of thousands, partly funded by a government department. The Ministry of Strategic Affairs is dedicated to a global “war” against BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement for Palestinian rights. To conceal its involvement, the ministry has admitted to working through front groups that “do not want to expose their connection with the state.” The troll army Act.IL is one of many such groups. It focuses on spreading Israeli propaganda online. What does it do with its million dollar budget? Act.IL is run by a former Israeli spy…

Jim Fetzer, More Propaganda from The New York Times: What else would we expect?

Jim Fetzer For good reasons have I described The New York Times as “The Langley Newsletter”, which has been powerfully confirmed by their most recent story about the Sandy Hook “Pozner v. Fetzer” lawsuit, where they claim that Mike Palecek and I asserted that “Lenny” had faked his son’s death certificate, when what we asserted instead was that the death certificate was fake, not that he had faked it. Were you to read The Times story, however, it would appear that we committed the stronger offense, which makes for more…

Pat McShay, Trump pushes back on War with Iran–but for how long?

Pat McShay “The ignorant warmonger masquerading as an American Secretary of State should be arrested for his impersonation of an American government official. — Paul Craig Roberts, The “Father Of Reaganomics” “Every time the U.S. saves a country, they turn it into an insane asylum or a cemetery.” — Ed Galean, Latin American Author “It’s a trick we always use. In Europe, we stop criticism of Israel by bringing up the Holocaust, in the U.S. we call critics anti-Semitic” — Shulamit Aloni, Former Israeli Minister by Patrick J. McShay Spain,…

Chris Hedges, The Mueller Report Ends a Shameful Period for the American Press

Chris Hedges The Mueller report’s categorical statement that Donald Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russia ends one of the most shameful periods in modern American journalism, one that rivals the mindless cheerleading for the Iraq War by most of the press. It further erodes and may prove fatal to the credibility of a press that has steadfastly rendered most of the country invisible and functions as little more than an array of gossiping courtiers to the elites. “ ‘[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the…

Dana Milbank, Netanyahu’s AIPAC Speech is a Knife in the Heart of US-Israel Alliance

Dana Milbank The gods were toying with Benjamin Netanyahu and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. The Israeli prime minister canceled his Tuesday appearance at the pro-Israel lobbying group’s Washington conference because of violence in Israel, but he attempted a live video address. Netanyahu’s speech was another knife into the heart of the bipartisan U.S.-Israel alliance. He attacked Democrats, singling out one Muslim member of Congress for remarks that were seen as anti-Semitic, while ignoring the many anti-Semitic remarks by Republicans. And he leveled the scurrilous claim that anyone who…

HARRETZ (2016): American Jewish Establishment Stifles Free Speech to Silence Zionism’s Critics

Peter Beinart / HARRETZ [Editor’s note: As Cynthia McKinney explained to Marzieh Hasmhimi on Press TV in 2011 (the video of which has been suppressed), new members of Congress are asked to sign a pledge to put the interests of Israel ahead of those of the United States, where those who decline find themselves confronted with a well-financed alternative candidate next time around or that their district has been redrawn and they no longer have a seat. She was able to overcome those obstacles, but even as notable a member as…

Philip Geraldi, The Growing Anti-Semitism Scam

Philip Geraldi In his novel 1984 George Orwell invented the expression “newspeak” to describe the ambiguous or deliberately misleading use of language to make political propaganda and narrow the “thought options” of those who are on the receiving end. In the context of today’s political discourse, or what passes for the same, it would be interesting to know what George would think of the saturation use of “anti-Semitism” as something like a tactical discussion stopper, employed to end all dispute while also condemning those accused of the crime as somehow outside the…

Jack Mullen, PSYCHOLOGICAL TERRORISM: A BRAVE NEW WORLD ORDER

By Jack Mullen One can see that the iconoclasts, whom one accuses of disdaining and negating images, were those who accorded them their true value, in contrast to the iconolaters who only saw reflections in them and were content to venerate a filigree God. Jean Baudrillard -‘Simulacra and Simulation’  All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame. Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit nothing?  Isaiah…

Western MSM Coverage of Hashemi’s Detention: Double-Standard on Steroids

Alireza Hashemi Marzieh Hashemi, the US-born anchorwoman who was arrested without charges on January 13 in her homeland, was finally set free on Wednesday, after she appeared before a 23-member grand jury for a third hearing on an unspecified federal court case. Probably, her release could not be secured without efforts by independent journalist and intuitive citizens to shine light onto this grave injustice, highlighting the seemingly lawless seizure, the abusive treatment she received and a cloak of secrecy surrounding the case caused outrage across the globe. Earlier, US officials…
