Four stages to a ‘Big Brother’ government

By Forbidden Knowledge TV

In 1985, ex-KGB agent, Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov, explained the tactics of “ideological subversion,” the job of slowly changing the perception of a target group, in four stages. He said that all four stages would happen in the US if
“the schmucks” were allowed to destabilize the economy, to do away with free-market competition and to install a “Big Brother” government.

Some Big Lies of Science

By Denis G. Rancourt
Activist Teacher

“[T]he majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.”
– Harold Pinter, Nobel Lecture (Literature), 2005

The maintenance of the hierarchical structures that control our lives depends on Pinter’s “vast tapestry of lies upon which we feed.” Therefore the main institutions that embed us into the hierarchy, such as schools, universities, and mass media and entertainment corporations, have a primary function to create and maintain this tapestry. This includes establishment scientists and all service intellectuals in charge of “interpreting” reality.

A redneck tree hugger and a techie ex-pat bridge the political ‘divide’



We’re all used to the partisan “Left/Right” convention that is used to factionalize and keep us from talking to each other. Diatribes full of hyperbole pass for political discourse, and listening has become a lost art.  This is bad enough but one subject in particular gets shut out of the conversation when it is dominated by shock and awe: what about Freedom?  Creeping authoritarianism is of greater concern to me than social policy, so it was of great interest when I came upon a sensible dialogue between two writers who approach issues differently but share more than we might expect.  Their exchange follows below.

The urge to confront the 800-pound gorilla in the room (creeping government control)  is a sub-text in much of what is written today. With the rise of so many technological tools that invade our privacy, read and record our communications, and provide access that any dictator would drool over- is it almost a no-brainer to assume they will be used against us. If we remain in our cheerleading sections busy despising each other, we’ll miss any opportunity to rein in or control the mechanisms of tyranny now being assembled.

With this in mind, COTO Report has set up this new page, Bridges, for cross-border dialogues. Here we will link specific bridge pieces posted at COTO Report, where full discussion across the political spectrum can be nurtured. The only rules are no ad hominem comments, and stick to the topic.

Brian Springer’s film, Spin

By BrassCheck TV

Artist Brian Springer spent a year scouring the airwaves with a satellite dish grabbing back channel news feeds not intended for public consumption. The result of his research is SPIN, one of the most insightful films ever made about the mechanics of how television is used as a tool of social control to distort and limit the American public’s perception of reality.

COTO Report British Edition: An Interview with David Icke

COTO Report British Edition goes to the Isle of Wight to bring you this audio interview with prolific author David Icke, one of the world’s leading researchers into the New World Order and the nature of reality. His new book, “Human Race Get Off Your Knees, the Lion Sleeps No More,” pokes into the nature of reality and politics.  Suspend judgment for a few hours and walk with Megan ‘Verb’ Kargher as David Icke leads her thru a mental/ spiritual/ political labyrinth, akin to the film, Zeitgeist (and its Addendum). Icke lays out an alternate reality that challenges his audience to reconsider absolute certainties we believe about our universe, the nature of matter and what role humans play.

By Megan ‘Verb’ Kargher

David Icke led a fascinating life: he has been a professional football (soccer) player, a BBC broadcaster and the Speaker for the Green Party in England.  He is one of the world’s leading researchers into the New World Order and the nature of reality and has written over a dozen books on the subject.  Those who wish to see him live can attend one of the many lectures he gives internationally.  I highly recommend his books and films.  In this interview we discuss his new book entitled Human Race Get Off Your Knees, the Lion Sleeps No More, the nature of reality and politics.

Obama Democrats vs Tea Party Republicans: Fake Fight over Fake Reform

By Bruce A. Dixon
Black Agenda Report

There are real fights and there are fake fights, engineered to distract attention away from the real deal. The shouting match between Obama’s Dems and the Tea party Repubs is one of those fake fights. The health care legislation passed by the Obama Democrats is incomparably worse than anything they could have passed right after the presidential election, and significantly worse than anything Democrats could have passed at midyear 2009. The president and his minions have delayed as long as possible to guarantee the worst, not the best bill for patients, and the best deal possible for Big Insurance, Big Pharma and Big Medicine.

Pro-single-payer doctors: Health bill leaves 23 million uninsured

A false promise of reform

By Physicians for a National Health Program

As much as we would like to join the celebration of the House’s passage of the health bill last night, in good conscience we cannot. We take no comfort in seeing aspirin dispensed for the treatment of cancer.

Instead of eliminating the root of the problem – the profit-driven, private health insurance industry – this costly new legislation will enrich and further entrench these firms. The bill would require millions of Americans to buy private insurers’ defective products, and turn over to them vast amounts of public money.

Sibel Edmonds: The Traitors Among Us

Sibel Edmonds Has Named Names. Why Isn’t the Media Reporting the Story?

By Brad Friedman
Hustler Magazine 

SIBEL EDMONDS, a former FBI translator, claims that the following government officials have committed what amount to acts of treason. They are lawmakers Dennis Hastert, Bob Livingston, Dan Burton, Roy Blunt, Stephen Solarz and Tom Lantos, as well as at least three members of George W. Bush’s inner circle: Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz and Marc Grossman. But is Sibel Edmonds credible?

March 01, 2010 – “

“Absolutely, she’s credible,” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told CBS’s 60 Minutes when he was asked about her in 2002. “The reason I feel she’s very credible is because people within the FBI have corroborated a lot of her story.” Edmonds’s remarkable allegations of bribery, blackmail, infiltration of the U.S. government and the theft of nuclear secrets by foreign allies and enemies alike rocked the Bush Administration. In fact, Bush and company actually prevented Edmonds from telling the American people what she knew—up until now.

Netanyahu’s UN Speech – The Pathology of Evil


Gilad Atzmon    09/30/09

Israeli PM Netanyahu’s speech at the UN is a major insight into the Israeli’s mentality, psyche and logic. In his speech Netanyahu, a prolific and charismatic speaker, gives air to his genocidal inclinations, he brings to light the Israeli supremacy but he also allows us to detect some shaky and vulnerable spots at the heart of the Jewish national narrative. Reading Netanyahu’s speech makes it very clear that both the Zionist Shoa and the ‘promised land’ narratives are on the verge of collapse.

On Conspiracy Theories

conspiracy-theory-6By Ernest A. Canning

Three separate “conspiracy theories” are used to show how the misuse of the term “conspiracy theory” as a means to dismiss any theory, whether supportive or destructive of official reality, is unscientific: JFK assassination, 9/11, and the 2004 election. Continue reading

Apollo Lunar Landing Videotape Mystery: Lost But Now Found?

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
