Patriot Act – Freedom of Speech Criminalized

COTO Report

Most of you know I was the Chief U.S. Asset covering the Iraqi Embassy at the United Nations for 7 years before the War. You know I was subsequently arrested on the Patriot Act, locked up on Carswell Air Force Base, and threatened with forcible drugging to silence me, when the Bush cabal decided to blame Pre-War Intelligence for their catastrophic decision to go to War.

On the 10 year anniversary of the start of the War, it’s worth examining the comprehensive peace option hammered out in the two year run up to the invasion. I was traveling in Minnesota this week for speaking engagements. In a television interview, I discussed the peace option at length.

The U.N. Flotilla Report Goes Down the Media’s Black Hole

People gather to welcome home the Mavi Marmara, the flagship of the ill-fated Gaza flotilla attacked by Israel this summer, in Istanbul, Turkey, Dec. 26, 2010. The Mavi Marmara departed from Turkey in May to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza and deliver humanitarian aids. On May 31, Israel raided the ship in international waters before it could reach its destination and killed nine activists aboard. (Xinhua/Chen Ming)

The U.N. Flotilla Report Goes Down the Media’s Black Hole

By Alex Kane

The return of the Turkish Mavi Marmara to Istanbul and efforts to end the Israeli-Turkish diplomatic chill has produced a number of media reports that mention the May 31 Gaza-bound aid flotilla.  But news outlets are continuing to frame the events aboard the flotilla ambivalently, and there is a media blackout of mentioning the one independent report on the Israeli raid that has been released.

The Principles of Democracy: A Shocking New Low in Official Comprehension

Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

Review of David Ray Griffin’s Book, Olive Branch Press, September 2010
By Elizabeth Woodworth

In the annals of democratic evolution, Professor Griffin’s masterful analysis is sure to become a classic, for it illustrates the shocking degree to which even high-level American scholars have lost sight of constitutional principles in the wake of 9/11.

Real vs. Fake Crises: Concealing the Risk of an All Out Nuclear War

By Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research

We have reached a turning point in our history. The US and its allies are preparing to launch a nuclear war with devastating consequences. During the Cold War, the concept of “mutual assured destruction” (MAD) was put forth. An understanding of the consequences of nuclear war largely contributed to avoiding the outbreak of war between the US and the Soviet Union.

Today, in the post-Cold war era, no such understanding prevails. The spectre of a nuclear holocaust, which haunted the world for half a century has been relegated to the status of “collateral damage”. This military adventure in the real sense of the word threatens the future of humanity.

Cognitive Infiltration: Cass Sunstein vs David Ray Griffin on 9/11 Truth

By Redacted News

The paper “Conspiracy Theories” by Harvard law professors Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule is a warning for all 9/11 Truth groups. Although the paper is allegedly about conspiracy theory in a general sense, it is clearly centered on 9/11. I submit that this indicates a rising concern within certain powerful but ill-defined circles. Below is a self-explanatory segment from Sunstein’s Wikipedia page as well as Dr. David Ray Griffin’s new book, Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.

The Ultimate Metric of Success in This War Is the Safety of the Pakistani People

I check in regularly at Five Rupees, a Pakistani blog. The writing and analysis is excellent. This blogger, Ahsan, is a Pakistani studying for his PhD in the states. Another is an intellectual property lawyer in Karachi. The third is a mystery. This analysis is aimed at the Pakistani government but applies here as well. ~ Michael

Something strange is afoot among the Pakistani body politic and military establishment. Continue reading

Leading Austrian Economist: Some Conspiracy Theories Are True

Washington’s Blog

Many people are starting to appreciate the Austrian school of economics, and its recognition that unrestrained bubbles lead to economic crashes.

But many of those who respect Austrian economics dismiss all “conspiracy theories” as being crazy.

In fact, leading Austrian school economist Professor Murray N. Rothbard wrote in 1965:

“It is also important for the State to inculcate in its subjects an aversion to any ‘conspiracy theory of history’; for a search for “conspiracies” means a search for motives and an attribution of responsibility for historical misdeeds.  Continue reading

The Democrats, the Deficit, and Social Security

By Shamus Cooke
Global Research

It’s official: the Democrats are coming after Social Security and Medicare.  How refreshing that all the backroom scheming and political conspiring is finally out in the open.  Before, the corporate elite had been having this conversation in private, via right-wing think tanks and business journals.  Now, mainstream media is promoting these ideas, including the Democrat’s media mouthpiece, The New York Times

By Fred Burks

NASA loses the tapes of one of the most important landmark events in human history. Then they find them, but parts have been erased to save money. And now Hollywood is being paid to restore the videos. How could anyone allow these historic tapes to be erased to save money? How could they even have been lost in the first place? I don’t doubt that the Apollo missions went to the moon, but there does appear to be some kind of cover-up and manipulation going on here. Continue reading
