9/11, the Ukraine, NSA Spying, the Iraq War, Zionism, Waco, the CIA, Psychedelics, the War on Drugs, Censorship, the TPP and a Whole Lot More
This website is based on a libertarian (in the sense of J.S.Mill)
perspective and is opposed to Fascism, Capitalism, Zionism, the Anglo-Zionist Empire, the Surveillance State and all who secretly work to cause wars for their own advantage and profit. It has over 250 pages concerned with the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11 and the subsequent so-called "war on terror", and over 900 pages on other subjects, including the CIA, the NSA, the Lockerbie bombing, the Waco massacre, the neo-Nazi revolution in the Ukraine, censorship, the Iraq war, the murder of Princess Diana, Wikileaks,
religion, psychedelics and the so-called "war on drugs", plus pages on
notable people such as George W. Bush, Maria Callas, Ganesh Baba,
Ernst Zündel, Nick Sand and the Dalai Lama.
This website asserts the natural right of people everywhere to pursue
their lives, interests and pleasures free from harmful social
conditioning, from exploitation and domination by covert political and
economic forces which seek to enslave them and from repressive
authoritarian governments, rapacious capitalist corporations, mendacious
religious organizations, fraudulent international bankers and the
unholy alliance among all of these which works to deprive the common
people of all countries of their freedom, health, happiness and the full
realization of their spiritual potential. When someone next offers
you disinfo, lies and deceit Just Say 'Know'.

- Sophie McAdam: Edward Snowden’s New Revelations Are Truly Chilling
In an interview with the BBC’s ‘Panorama’ ... Edward Snowden spoke in detail about the spying capabilities of the UK intelligence agency GCHQ. He disclosed that government spies can legally hack into any citizen’s phone to listen in to what’s happening in the room, view files, messages and photos, pinpoint exactly where a person is ... and monitor a person’s every move and every conversation, even when the phone is turned off. ... It’s one more reason to conclude that smartphones suck. And as much as we convince ourselves how cool they are, it’s hard to deny their invention has resulted in a tendency for humans to behave like zombies ... and prevented us from communicating with those who really matter (the ones in the same room at the same time). Now, Snowden has given us yet another reason to believe that smartphones might be the dumbest thing we could have ever inflicted on ourselves.
- President Vladimir Putin's 2015 Address to the United Nations General Assembly
[I]nstead of learning from other people’s mistakes, some prefer to repeat them and continue to export revolutions, only now these are “democratic” revolutions. Just look at the situation in the Middle East and Northern Africa ... what was the actual outcome? Instead of bringing about reforms, aggressive intervention rashly destroyed government institutions and the local way of life. Instead of democracy and progress, there is now violence, poverty, social disasters and total disregard for human rights, including even the right to life. I’m urged to ask those who created this situation: Do you at least realize now what you’ve done? But I’m afraid that this question will remain unanswered, because they have never abandoned their policy, which is based on arrogance, exceptionalism and impunity.

- Henry A. Giroux: The Plague of American Authoritarianism
The renowned political theorist Sheldon Wolin ... claimed that in the United States an emerging totalitarianism has appeared in form different from what we have seen in the past. Instead of a charismatic leader, the government is now governed through the anonymous and largely remote hands of corporate power and finance capital. Political sovereignty is largely replaced by economic sovereignty as corporate power takes over the reins of governance. The more money influences politics, the more corrupt the political culture becomes. Under such circumstances, holding office is largely dependent on having huge amounts of capital at one’s disposal, while laws and policies at all levels of government are mostly fashioned by lobbyists representing big business corporations and financial institutions.

US and Russian AWACS aircraft are always present when a conflict occurs anywhere near Europe. ... Besides their AWACS, the Americans and Russians also use their space-based satellites to monitor any conflict zone. ... I would expect the US could provide much more data than just radio intercepts. And yet the US has provided exactly nothing. There is only one logical possibility for that otherwise bizarre US refusal to provide any data at all: the US data points to the “wrong” party. In other words, the fact that the US is not releasing any data at all is, by itself, an indirect proof that the Ukrainians did it.

[Only] two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: our CIA and Israel’s Mossad. Only one had the incentive, using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad. And that incentive dovetailed perfectly with the neo-cons' agenda and explicitly expressed need for a catalytic event to mobilize the American public for their wars, using American military power to destroy Israel’s enemies.

- The U.S. National Security Act of 1947, the Origin of "Plausible Deniability" and the Assassination of JFK
In the course of experimenting in the dark truth of JFK's death, the ongoing, deepening historical hypothesis of this book [JFK and the Unspeakable] has been that the CIA coordinated and carried out the president's murder. That hypothesis has been strengthened as the documents, witnesses, and converging lines of inquiry have pointed more conclusively at the CIA. Yet understanding that the CIA coordinated the assassination does not mean that we can limit the responsibility to the CIA. To tell the truth at the heart of darkness in this story, one must see and accept a responsibility that goes deeper and far beyond the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA was the coordinating instrument that killed the president, but the question of responsibility is more systemic, more personal, and more chilling. Thomas Merton described it rightly as the Unspeakable.

- The Saker: Brainwashed Zombies and Hypocrites
Did you notice how all these Takfiri freaks "just happen" to have had plenty of contacts of all sorts with Western security services? It's like a Ku Klux Klan meeting in the USA: for ten hooded participants you have two morons and eight Federal agents working undercover. Same exact deal for these Takfiris. And then the two morons do something really really bad, and the eight Federal Agents "just happen" to vanish into thin air (or "commit suicide"). Does that have anything to do with Islam? Of course not. It has everything to do with the deep state and the covert manipulation of probably every single terrorist group on the planet.
- New links have been added to Wikileaks and Cablegate
It is absolutely disgraceful that Julian Assange has in effect been held under house arrest in London for over two years [over three years in July 2015] without being charged by either the government of Sweden or the U.K. government with any crime. Much praise is due to the government of Ecuador for providing Assange with protection from rendition to Sweden and consequent extradition to the U.S., where he would probably be tortured and would certainly be jailed for life. The government of the U.K. is, to its shame, just a tool of the Americans. And to its shame also, the government of Australia has done absolutely nothing to help or protect Assange (an Australian citizen) or even to protest this blatant injustice.
- Larchmonter 445: China-Russia: The Double Helix (PDF file, 277 KB)
The Saker: I find Larchmonter 445's image of a double helix particularly appropriate because what we are witnessing here is the birth of a new geopolitical "life form" so to speak, an informal alliance of two countries which goes much deeper than most regular alliances do: what we are seeing is the mutual agreement to establish a full-spectrum geostrategic symbiosis between two civilizational realms as both Russia and China are what used to be called 'empires' in the past but which today are what I call "civilizational realms": multi-ethnic, multi-national and multi-religious ex-empires whose influence extends beyond their current national borders and whose international strategic "weight" makes them far more akin to continents then to countries. ... I would argue that this is by far the single most important political development since the end of WWII and probably the most important one in this century.
- The Saker: Important appeal for help to all Russian speakers!
By now it must be clear to everybody that what is taking place today is not just some "Cold War v2" or some "East-West tensions", but a full-scale total war not just between Russia and the USA but between the entire Anglo-Zionist Empire and the Resistance (led by Russia and the BRICS). ... If Russia loses this war, the Empire wins the planet. And if Russia wins, that will be the end of the Empire. It is really that simple.
- Vladimir Putin's 2014 Speech at the Valdai Club
The measures taken
against those [countries] who refuse to submit [to US dictates] are well-known and have been tried
and tested many times. They include use of force, economic and
propaganda pressure, meddling in domestic affairs, and appeals to a kind
of ‘supra-legal’ legitimacy when they need to justify illegal
intervention in this or that conflict or toppling inconvenient regimes.
Of late, we have increasing evidence too that outright blackmail has
been used with regard to a number of leaders. It is not for nothing that
‘big brother’ is spending billions of dollars on keeping the whole
world, including its own closest allies [including Germany], under surveillance.

The emerging electric model of the universe holds the key to understanding the causes of long and short-term climate variation. The pattern of variation has very specific characteristics, characteristics that match the behavior of a noisy electrical circuit. The electric model reveals that the Earth is indeed connected to a cosmic electrical circuit, a circuit that is subject to the kind of noise that could produce the patterns seen in the Earth’s temperature record.
- Paul Craig Roberts: Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire Until War Is the Only Alternative?
The inability of the Russian and Chinese governments to come to terms with the threat posed to their existence as sovereign countries by the neoconservative insistence on American world hegemony makes nuclear war more likely. If Russia and China catch on too late in the game, their only alternative will be war or submission to Washington’s hegemony. As there is no possibility of the US and NATO invading and occupying Russia and China, the war would be nuclear.

These are people, the story goes, who suffer from paranoid delusions, and sane people should pay no attention to anything they say. If someone even looks at any of those ideas, their own mental stability comes into question. ... Since then, the conspiracy-theory meme has been carefully nurtured and expanded ...[and] has been very successful in immunizing the majority of the population against the revelations available on the Internet, especially regarding 9/11. Any story not appearing in the mainstream media must by definition be a conspiracy theory, and anything that sounds like a conspiracy theory should be scoffed at and ignored.
- Brian Cloughley: Sanctions rebound to hit Europeans
The West's malevolent sanctions on Russia were not imposed because Russia had in any way affected the well-being, economic circumstances, territorial integrity or social structure of the United States or of any nation that jumped on the US sanctions' bandwagon. There was no question of enforcing sanctions because Russia's actions anywhere in the world had impacted adversely on one single citizen of any Western nation. But they were imposed, anyway, just to try to make things difficult for Moscow and to try to ratchet up tension between Russia and the West.
- Boeing-777 was downed by Ukrainian MiG-29, Romanian expert says
Thus, the Malaysian Boeing MH-17, according to the Romanian expert, was shot down from a gun of a MiG-29 aircraft, rather than a missile.

In this case, fragments would fly 360 degrees around and strike the entire fuselage of the aircraft, not just the cockpit.
- The Saker: Thinking the Unthinkable
I can very much imagine a desperate Obama trying to show the American people that he "has hair on his chest" and that he is not going to let "regional power" challenge the "indispensable nation". So what he and, really, his administration risks doing is the following: to play a game of chicken hoping against all odds that the Russians will yield. This is my worst nightmare and the worst possible assumption to make because Russia cannot yield. ... I think that they are dumb enough to try to seize a Russian ship entering or leaving the Black Sea. Remember — these are the folks who hijacked the aircraft of Bolivian President Evo Morales to try to find Snowden on board. ... And, of course, these are the folks who did 9/11. Their arrogance knows no limits because they are profoundly evil sociopaths.
- The Saker: Memories, Recollections, Guesses and Speculations about MH17
Cui bono? Well here at least the reply is unambiguous: only the junta in Kiev could have benefited from this tragedy. For the Russians and the Novorussians, this is something between a real pain and a disaster. Just when the Novorussians were winning without any overt help from Moscow and just when Moscow was gradually successful in denouncing the human costs of Poroshenko's murderous policies — suddenly the entire planet focuses just on one downed aircraft and the [Anglo-Zionist] imperial corporate media blames it all on Russia.

- The Myth of Apollo — Did the USA really go to the Moon?
If my reading of the facts is correct and my reasoning sound, the USA did not go to the Moon when it said it did between 1969 and 1972. If I am right, the USA ditched its attempt to go to the Moon some time in 1967, when it realised the task was too great. Going to the Moon presented technological obstacles that were simply too great to overcome, even for a superpower. I believe that instead of holding up its hands and publicly admitting defeat, the USA decided to pretend to its citizens — and the rest of the world — that it had been to the Moon and faked the evidence.

- The Saker: Today Every Free Person in the World has Won!
[In his speech Vladimir Putin] expressed Russia's view on the level of civilizational and cultural degradation the Anglo-Zionist Empire has imposed upon the people of Europe and the USA. Furthermore, when Putin says that “destruction of traditional values from above not only leads to negative consequences for society, but is also essentially anti-democratic, since it is carried out on the basis of abstract, speculative ideas, contrary to the will of the majority” he is clearly stating that the Anglo-Zionist Empire is not ruled by the people which live in it, but by minorities, special interest groups, behind-the-scenes lobbies and cabals who impose their warped agenda upon the rest of the people.
[The] bottom line is this: the President of Russia has made an open declaration of war against the 1% elite which currently is in control of the Anglo-Zionist Empire. This war will be a multi-level one combining “soft power” (cultural resistance, religious resistance, informational resistance, financial and economic warfare) with “hard power” (a military ready fight the US/NATO if necessary, the use of the “energy weapon” to retaliate against economic warfare). ... [This] war will also profoundly be a class war in which oligarchs from different countries will support each other and in which the regular, 99%, people will work together on, for example, the “virtual battlefields” of the Internet.

The EU will sink further in its economic and social crisis and some other crisis will replace the Ukraine in the news. ... [It] will take a long while for the West to realize what has really happened, and the most obtuse of pundits and politicians will probably hang on to their usual self-righteous rhetoric forever, but historians will probably look back at the month of February 2014 as the moment when Russia successfully beat back the combined power of the USA and Europe and prevailed.
- Ukraine, Russia and the World: Five Questions to Three Authors
For Russia the goal is simple: survival as a nation, country and civilization. In this sense, this is not a “Putin policy” but a “Russian policy” ... When NATO bombed the Serbs in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo, Russia was ruled by a drunken western-puppet, Yeltsin, and a clique of mostly Jewish oligarchs ... Russia then was very much like the Ukraine today. But even then, most Russian people fully understood that the US rampage in the Balkans was a message to them: "watch what we can do to your allies — you are next." ... What you hear nowadays in Russia is "it's not about the Serbs or the Syrians anymore, this time this is about us". So for the vast majority of Russians — including Putin — the main strategic goal is simple: not let Russia become the next Bosnia, Kosovo or Syria. In other words: survival.
- The Saker: The Self-defeating Fuite en Avant of the US in the Ukraine
[It] is pretty undeniable that the West is not only supporting the wrong side but also that this decision is not only completely immoral but also amazingly short-sighted. This is yet another case of what the French called fuite en avant (literally "to flee forward"): when somebody does something clearly and obviously mistaken and then, frightened by that, instead of reversing course decides to run forward at an even higher speed. In contrast, Russia's decision is not only morally right, it is also pragmatically correct.
- The Saker: Ukrainian Nationalism — Its Roots and Nature
For Russia a separate and independent Ukraine is first and foremost a way of avoiding being drawn into a civil war. If, say, Tymoshenko managed to supress the neo-Nazis and negotiate some kind of modus vivendi between, on one hand, the western Ukraine and Kiev and, on the other, the eastern and southern Ukraine there is little doubt that she and Putin could find some peaceful and pragmatic way to coexist. ...
Another option is to have the nationalists take full control over all of the Ukraine. That seems extremely unlikely to me, but who knows? I have been disappointed with Ukie politicians enough not to put the worst possible outcome past them. That would mean that the Russian-Ukrainian border would turn into something between the Wall which separated the two parts of Germany during the Cold War or the DMZ between the two parts of Korea. ...
Which leaves option three: the nationalist attempt to subdue the south and east and fail. The violence escalates and eventually Russia is drawn in. Now in purely military terms, Russia could very easily defeat any Ukie army which would attempt to fight it. ... But just imagine the nightmare resulting from a Russian military operation in eastern Ukraine! It would be back to a new Cold War, but this time on steroids: western politicians would scramble over each other to denounce, declare, threaten, condemn, proclaim, sanction, and pledge God knows what kind of nonsense. Hysterical russophobia would become the order of the day and the AngloZionist Empire would finally find the kind of eternal enemy it has desperately been seeking since the end of the First Cold War.
Tom Engelhardt: US Digs a Security Black Hole
What's perhaps most striking about all this is the inability of the Obama administration and its intelligence bureaucrats to grasp the nature of what's happening to them. For that, they would need to skip those daily briefs from an intelligence community which, on the subject, seems blind, deaf, and dumb, and instead take a clear look at the world.
As a measuring stick for pure tone-deafness in Washington, consider that it took our secretary of state and so, implicitly, the president, five painful months to finally agree that the NSA had, in certain limited areas, "reached too far". And even now, in response to a global uproar and changing attitudes toward the US across the planet, their response has been laughably modest. ... [M]aybe, just maybe, they can store it all for a mere three years, rather than the present five. And perhaps, just perhaps, they might consider giving up on listening in on some friendly world leaders, but only after a major rethink and reevaluation of the complete NSA surveillance system. And in Washington, this sort of response to the Snowden debacle is considered a "balanced" approach to security versus privacy.

- A second comment by Peter Meyer has been added to Robert Gorden on Obama and Snowden.
It is standard practice for intelligence agencies to place spies within the intelligence agencies of other countries, and obviously the NSA would be a prime target. If just 1 in 10,000 of the "480,000 private contractors in the US [who] had the 'top-secret' security clearance issued to Snowden" was a Russian or Chinese spy, then there were about fifty such spies who were in a position to obtain the documents that Snowden did. And if they were in a position to do so, we may assume that they did, and that these documents were passed to the Russian and the Chinese intelligence agencies months or perhaps years before Snowden saw them. The Russians and the Chinese have insisted that they have neither received, nor attempted to extract, any of Snowden's secrets. Probably because they already had them all. They were secret only from the public.
- NSA shares raw intelligence including Americans' data with Israel
The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel without first sifting it to remove information about US citizens, a top-secret document provided to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals. Details of the intelligence-sharing agreement are laid out in a memorandum of understanding between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart that shows the US government handed over intercepted communications likely to contain phone calls and emails of American citizens. The agreement places no legally binding limits on the use of the data by the Israelis.

[Janna Malamud Smith:] The totalitarian state watches everyone, but keeps its own plans secret. Privacy is seen as dangerous because it enhances resistance. Constantly spying and then confronting people with what are often petty transgressions is a way of maintaining social control and unnerving and disempowering opposition ... And even when one shakes real pursuers, it is often hard to rid oneself of the feeling of being watched — which is why surveillance is an extremely powerful way to control people. The mind's tendency to still feel observed when alone... can be inhibiting. ... Feeling watched, but not knowing for sure, nor knowing if, when, or how the hostile surveyor may strike, people often become fearful, constricted, and distracted.
- Robert Gorden on Obama and Snowden
The reasons for unleashing Snowden upon the world were threefold. First, it is an attack an Obama who is now a lame duck and has outlived his usefulness. ...
Second, Snowden's revelations would let them gage the level of popular push-back they would suffer when the world would eventually learn about their behavior. ... [Third,] to make it clear especially to global intellectuals who are always the ones who create the most problems for the ruling classes, that they are being watched, that everything they do or say is going to be recorded ...
With a comment by Peter Meyer.
- Noam Chomsky praises Snowden and condemns US hypocrisy
Governments ... always plead security no matter what’s going on. The reflexive defense is security. But anyone who’s looked at [what Snowden has] published, it’s not any kind of threat to security, with one exception, the security of the government from its own population. And in fact if you look at anyone who’s spent any time poring through declassified records ... you find that [what they have found is that] overwhelmingly the [alleged] security is [actually] the security of the state from its own population and that’s why things have to be kept secret.

And then they can use this system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you've ever made, every friend you've ever discussed something with. And attack you on that basis to sort of derive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer. ... And ... it's only going to get worse, until eventually ... they'll flip the switch, say that 'Because of the crisis, because of the dangers we face in the world, some new and unpredicted threat, we need more authority, we need more power.'

I suggest that the extent of non-body-awareness consciousness may be as great as the extent of our consciousness of the physical world, and that there is an oneiric world which may be as vast as the physical world .... The term oneiric relates to dreams, but I suggest that this is an appropriate term for this (largely undiscovered) world because most people’s experience of the oneiric world is confined to their dreams. But beyond dreaming are states of consciousness similar in nature but very different. ... Our personal selves lie at the intersection of these two worlds, the physical and the oneiric, and we can experience both, sometimes at the same time.

ruling elite has given itself] over to systems and mindsets that are
implacably inhuman. They are all in the process of self-murdering their
own souls. It's a horrible, sickening sight. And although I condemn
their crimes and tainted minds with all the fury and outrage and scorn
they deserve, I take no pleasure in this rage. I am heartsick, truly, at
every soul lost to the machines — the War Machine, the Money Machine,
the Power Machine — that rule our world.
- Richard K. Moore: Full-Spectrum Dominance and the Regime-Change Project
the cabal is quite willing to use whatever force is necessary to
achieve its objectives, up to and including orchestrating major wars, it
never relies exclusively on force. A way is always sought to bring
Western public opinion into alignment with those objectives. Thus
military interventions are portrayed as 'humanitarian', bailouts are
portrayed as 'unfortunately necessary', and austerity is portrayed as a
'path to growth recovery'. Such false portrayals are sold to the public
by propaganda from the cabal-controlled mass media, and by the lies of

Ellen Grace Jones: London's Burning
young rioters see a corrupt government which doesn't listen, which lies
and breaks promises. One which does not speak for them. A government
which denies them a future, slashing funding and enforcing austerity
measures left-right-and-centre in a bid to serve their criminal banking
paymasters. ... While more visibly violent and tangibly
fear-inspiring, the acts that pockets of London's youths have committed
over the last four days are no worse than the insidious raping and
plundering of our global economies by the criminal banking elite.

bankers and corporatists who look to the IMF to provide legitimacy to
their ongoing plunder of the rest of the world. These are the people who
think that the current policies are "just fine" because they produce
the results they're looking for, which is bigger profits for themselves
and deeper poverty for everyone else.

people are like a powerful, slumbering dragon. Even as it slumbers this
dragon is filled with a sense of injustice. None of the pomp and
grandeur of the contemporary mechanisms of jurisprudence are able to
cause it to be blinded to the pervasive, underlying injustice that
prevails in the world. A small, seemingly insignificant event, some
last straw like the imposition of harsh governmental austerity
programs, might be the breeze that awakens the dragon. Once awakened it
begins to unfold its wings and feels a hunger in its belly. One small
act of courage, of standing up to the powers-that-be, can inspire other
acts of courage.

Robert Higgs: Why This Gigantic “Intelligence” Apparatus? Follow the Money
would these hundreds of organizations and contracting companies be
willing to take gigantic amounts of the taxpayers’ money when everyone
agrees that the money cannot be spent sensibly and that the system
already in place cannot function effectively or efficiently to attain
its ostensible purpose? The question answers itself. It’s loot for the
taking, and there has been no shortage of takers. ... What we see here
is not really an “intelligence” or counterterrorism operation at all.
It’s a rip-off, plain and simple, fed by irrational fear and continually
stoked by the government plunderers who are exercising the power and
raking in the booty to “fight terrorism.”

institutions of governance will make no pretensions to popular
representation or democratic responsiveness. Rule will be by means of
autocratic global bureaucracies, which take their marching orders from

Breaking the Australian Silence
his acceptance of the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature, Harold Pinter
asked this question: “Why is the systematic brutality, the widespread
atrocities, the ruthless suppression of independent thought of Stalinist
Russia well known in the West while American criminal actions never
happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it never
happened. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest.”
Australia, we are trained to respect this censorship by omission. An
invasion is not an invasion if “we” do it. Terror is not terror if “we”
do it. A crime is not a crime if “we” commit it. It didn’t happen.
Even while it was happening it didn’t happen. It didn’t matter. It was
of no interest.

- Joel S. Hirschhorn: 9/11 Mind Swell
9/11 movement has not been able to articulate enough benefits to the
public from disbelieving the official government story and pursuing a
new investigation. What might ordinary Americans gain? Would
proof-positive of government involvement make them feel better, more
secure, and more patriotic? Apparently not. In fact, just the opposite.
By its very nature, the 9/11 issue threatens many things by discovering
the truth: still less confidence in the US political system, government
and public officials. Still more reason to ponder the incredible loss of
life and national wealth in pursuing the Iraq war. In other words,
revealing 9/11 truth offers the specter of a huge national bummer.
Conversely, it would show the world that American democracy has
