Many thanks to the talented John Massaria of UniBrowStudioVision YouTube channel for this engaging video version of our recent interview with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the Transatlatic and Transpacific Partnerships (TPP, TTIP & TiSA). John kindly produced the video in the hope that Dr. Roberts' important words might reach a wider audience, so please do share this video in any way you can. (I know everyone always says that, but this is actually a very important subject, and people do need to know about it.)
How can our "leaders" really be opposed to terrorism?, asks Chris Floyd.
"...Western leaders were specifically warned by their own experts that their actions would exacerbate extremism and violence. And again, with this knowledge, they decided that their geopolitical agendas were more important than these consequences."
Patrick M. Wood, a repeated guest on this show (TMR: 071, 107, 119) announces the launch of his new prime-time radio programme: Technocracy Rising Hour. Starting on Friday November 13th at 7 pm (Pacific Time), Pat's show will deal with "the clear and present danger to America", which he identifies as "Technocracy and everything that surrounds it", such as "Agenda 21, 2030 Agenda, Sustainable Development, Climate Change, Green Economy, etc." As he puts it:
I haven't worn a poppy for a few years now. I'm not a pacifist, at least I'm not a proper one; I can just about imagine circumstances in which it's better to fight than to allow wickedness to prevail and do even more damage, and I think Hitler and his Nazi thugs were such a wickedness. But I have become increasingly conscious of how the poppy symbol and remembrance in general have become co-opted by the modern war machine, serving to baptise the UK's wars of the 21st Century in the spirit of its perhaps more morally-defensible Past.
If you're in the UK, please support the Defend Free Speech Campaign (http://defendfreespeech.org.uk/) which has been set up recently by the Christian Institute and The National Secular Society, who are working together to defend our right to freedom of speech in this country. Please join their campaign (as I have done) and write to your MP expressing your concern about the proposed EDOs (as I have done). Parliamentary democracy doesn't work well for the people, but it exists and we can make use of it, such as it is. If enough of us tell our MPs that we are deeply concerned, especially by the nebulous term "non-violent extremism", we may be able to wake up our somnambulant MPs to the danger this presents.
In the age of feudalism, elites were able to silence the peasants via threat of vagrancy, property theft, gaol and sword. Today, they have to do it far more subtly: via the power of lies. In a very helpful article, Brandon Smith lays out some of the ways in which they manage to pull it off.
In an exclusive piece at Empire Burlesque, Chris Floyd reports on eyewitnesses who say they saw Jeremy Corbyn behaving suspiciously like Adolf Hitler and "literally eating the heads off newborn kittens." Hard to believe, I know, but anyone tempted to choose this man in the 2020 UK General Election MUST read this report first before casting their vote. You have been warned!
UK Partnerships for Christ, "Sharing the Gospel on Your Doorstep", MormonismInvestigated.co.uk
For the first time UKPC is having a full conference day - Saturday 19 September 2015, 10 am until 4 pm, at Sunbridge Road Mission, Bradford, UK - for which they will be joined by Bill McKeever of Mormonism Research Ministry (mrm.org). Bill, who is based in Sandy, Utah has been equipping Christians to witness to Mormons for over thirty years, and he will be sharing from his insight and experience in witnessing to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (lds.org).
For the 14th anniversary of September 11th, 2001, there will be an important live broadcast at the above website to which people will be able to submit questions and comments in real time. Many notable researchers, who have critically examined the official account of the events of 9/11, will present their analyses on the failures of the official story, the negative impact it has had on our world, and why it is important to investigate what happened on that fateful day.
The thing about comedian and master of irony Frankie Boyle is that you can never be quite sure if he's being outrageous for effect, or if he actually means what he says; that's all part of his appeal. But however he really means it, his thought is certainly worth pondering.
Anytime that a hard-nosed analysis is put forth of who our rulers are, of how their political and economic interests interlock, it is invariably denounced by Establishment liberals and conservatives (and even by many libertarians) as a "conspiracy theory of history," "paranoid," "economic determinist," and even "Marxist." These smear labels are applied across the board, even though such realistic analyses can be, and have been, made from any and all parts of the economic spectrum, from the John Birch Society to the Communist Party. The most common label is "conspiracy theorist," almost always leveled as a hostile epithet rather than adopted by the "conspiracy theorist" himself.
In characteristically flamboyant style Chris Floyd pricks the bubble of British Establishment fury at Jeremy Corbyn's bid for the UK Labour Party leadership. Though apparently "unelectable" to the likes of Tony Blair (friend of "dictators and other assorted sleazebags"), Corbyn's campaign has seen "more than 400,000 people" join the ranks of the Labour Party, in sharp contrast to the exodus of "200,000 members" during the Blair years, "most of them stage left."
Following David Cameron's address on "extremism" on 20 July 2015, the inimitable Guzzy Bear Oh Yeh! kindly posts an open video message of congratulations to our esteemed Prime Minster, praising him for a "wonderful speech" that is "surely going to unite us all in this battle against the radicalisation and extremism amongst young people in our nation." *
Pondering further UK Prime Minister David Cameron's remarks on Monday about "extremism" (which Glenn Greenwald tweeted as "one of the creepiest and most authoritarian speeches you'll ever hear"), it's nice to know we can turn to one of his key colleagues for further "clarification". Quizzed in May by BBC Radio 4 Today Programme's John Humphrys as to what the government means by "extremism" and the "British values" it apparently offends, Mrs. May seemed to be unable to explain.
"Afshin Rattansi goes underground with James G. Connell III, attorney at the US Defense Department, who represents Aamar al-Baluchi. Aamar stands accused of financing 9/11, and the CIA-backed Hollywood film Zero Dark Thirty even based a character on him. James explains how Hollywood producers and directors works with the CIA, and why the US considers itself to be exempt from many human rights treaties." *
