"In the most extreme circumstances, we've made it very clear that you can't rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike." I suppose some might wish to dismiss this comment by UK Defence Secretary—The (so-called) "Right Honourable" Sir Michael Fallon, KCB (Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath), MP—on BBC Radio 4's Today programme as just so much bluff, but I find it utterly appalling that a British Secretary of Defence should even say such a thing.
When the gullible and insouciant American public and the presstitutes who participate in the deceptions permitted the Deep State to get away with the fairy tale that a few Saudi Arabians under the direction of Osama bin Laden, but without the support of any government or intelligence agency, were able to outwit the entirety of the Western Alliance and Israel’s Mossad and deliver the greatest humiliation in history to “the world’s only superpower” by making the entirety of the US government dysfunctional on September 11, 2001, Washington learned that it could get away with anything, any illegal and treasonous act, any lie. The gullible Western populations would believe anything that they were told.
“I love Wikileaks,” candidate Donald Trump said on October 10th on the campaign trail. He praised the organization for reporting on the darker side of the Hillary Clinton campaign. It was information likely leaked by a whistleblower from within the Clinton campaign to Wikileaks.
"I don't leave my brains at the door when I examine a situation analytically; I try to be objective. And, based on previous experience, including Iraq, we can see that we cannot take at face value what the so-called intelligence experts tell us, not when they have an agenda."
I find it slightly encouraging that the term "false flag" seems to be finding its way into mainstream political language (at least in Moscow, apparently). So long as the idea is taboo in public discourse, people remain open to manipulation, because they lack a key interpretative component with which to assess events.
Thursday’s US missile attack on Syria must represent the quickest foreign policy U-turn in history. Less than a week after the White House gave Assad permission to stay on as president of his own country, President Trump decided that the US had to attack Syria and demand Assad’s ouster after a chemical attack earlier in the week.
The United States finds its increasingly clumsy, circular foreign policy looping back once again to accusations of "weapons of mass destruction" being inexplicably used against a civilian population, this time in Syria’s northern city of Idlib currently serving as the defacto capital of terrorist organizations including various Al Qaeda affiliates, most notably the US State Department designated foreign terrorist organization, al-Nusrah Front.
It never fails to amaze me the rank hypocrisy of Western politicians such as Theresa May whose countries are members of the NATO military alliance.
While bereaved relatives and a shocked population have to endure the bitter aftermath of an attack we hear the same automated platitudinous statements delivered in the defiant statesman posture such as:
Following our recent chat with Antony Rotunno, I thought I would draw attention to these fascinating recordings of conversations between the American composers John Cage and Morton Feldman from 1966 and 67. The conversations seems to have been broadcast on radio, and the audio quality is very high, making you feel like these two men are in the next room.
Julian Assange, "WikiLeaks Julian Assange Press Conference On CIA Hacking" (09 March 2017)
Just like everyone else, I'm still trying to make sense of this "Vault 7" thing. (Tom Secker has some interesting thoughts in a piece called "7 Questions about Wikileaks and Vault 7" over at Medium.com.) But, in case you didn't catch it, here's Julian Assange's statement on the leak.
Just in case there's someone who happens to be visiting The Mind Renewed for the first time who is under the impression that all talk of Technocracy in the modern world is just so much "conspiracy theory", here's an article by the Danish politician Ida Auken that was published last November by the World Economic Forum as part of their "Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils".
If you're fed up with hearing about Donald Trump—whether negative, positive or indifferent—and you feel like throwing your TV set out of the nearest window, then let me highly recommend a truly alternative take on the news of the day. Undaunted by the difficulty of researching deeply into matters of great concern to every citizen on the planet, John McMahon and his crew of intrepid reporters nevertheless choose to ignore all that, and instead bring us cutting-edge, moment-by-moment commentary on news stories seldom analysed in such a fashion by anyone else in the known universe. Enjoy!
The new administration's Executive Orange to ban all people from seven majority Muslim countries from entering the United States is nothing more than the latest in a line of hostile policies going back to at least 2001. However, it seems that many on what is laughably called the Left have forgotten the last 16 years and are reacting like this is a watershed moment.
Said- alternative news often takes heart lie-making mainstream press is in decline. That the grip of Govt. based operatives embedded within will lose influence and, up comes… all our socio-political enlightenment. On clicks info-warriors. Problem with this thesis, is the notion alt. media is on the up.
Just in case any of you haven't heard yet, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of the major German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, has been found dead (it has been reported) at the age of 56. In 2014, he published the book Gekaufte Journalisten (Journalists for Hire) in which he described how the CIA and its foreign satellites bribe journalists to write fact-free, pro-Western, pro-NATO propaganda.
"The ability for technology and innovations to transform global economics and geopolitics is often underestimated, even sidelined in retrospect. However, from the technological achievements that gave the British Empire mastery over the seas, to the industrial revolution that eventually disrupted and unraveled the empire’s carefully constructed global system of mercantilism, the march of technological progress literally governors the rise and fall of global centers of power and the empires built around them."
I like this song, so I thought I'd share it with you. As the lyrics put it, "It's not a good time for God", but you'll have to listen to Martyn's performance—or, even better, read the lyrics—to get an idea of what's being said. In another sense, of course, it's always a good time for God, because time is God's creation, and God is to be encountered even in the direst of times. But then, of course, the song is really about human beings...
