Hate Mongering Propaganda... American Style

Mind Control

Buying Venezuela’s Press With U.S. Tax Dollars

By Jeremy Bigwood

The U.S. State Department is secretly funneling millions of dollars to Latin American journalists, according to documents obtained in June under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The 20 documents released to this author—including grant proposals, awards, and quarterly reports—show that between 2007 and 2009, the State Department’s little-known Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor channeled at least $4 million to journalists in Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Venezuela through the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), a Washington-based grant maker that has worked in Latin America since 1962.

The 'Torture' Hypocrisy of the New York Times

Mind Control

By Scott Horton

Has the newspaper of record adopted a double standard for torture techniques—using the “t”-word when the techniques are applied by other nations, but using more evasive characterizations when agents of the United States government are in the spotlight? That question has now been authoritatively settled, and the answer is a resounding “yes.”

In Defense of the Memory Theater

Mind Control

By Nathan Schneider

What concerns me about the literary apocalypse that everybody now expects—the at least partial elimination of paper books in favor of digital alternatives—is not chiefly the books themselves, but the bookshelf. My fear is for the eclectic, personal collections that we bookish people assemble over the course of our lives, as well as for their grander, public step-siblings. I fear for our memory theaters.

The Iranian Threat?

Mind Control

By Noam Chomsky

The dire threat of Iran is widely recognized to be the most serious foreign policy crisis facing the Obama administration. Congress has just strengthened the sanctions against Iran, with even more severe penalties against foreign companies. The Obama administration has been rapidly expanding its offensive capacity in the African island of Diego Garcia, claimed by Britain, which had expelled the population so that the US could build the massive base it uses for attacking the Middle East and Central Asia.

Wall Street Journal Rewrites History to Mislead Readers

by linuxguy

The editorial The Keynesian Dead End provides a good example of how Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal editorial board rewrites history to mislead its readers. They cannot accept the fact that Keynesian Economics Works and that Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has prevented a second Great Depression. When the facts do not support their political position, the Wall Street Journal simply rewrites history or twists statistics to support their agenda. (illicit and immoral agenda)

Look out: the gloves are off and as usual the New York Times is determined to destroy Hollywood filmmaker Oliver Stone. On Friday, the paper published not one but two critical articles about the director’s latest documentary, South of the Border, about the tectonic political changes occurring in South America. Stone, who is known for such popular hits as Wall Street and Platoon, made his film based on interviews with such leaders as Raul Castro of Cuba and Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.

And as it does, it becomes more and more obvious just how pervasive and powerful corporate control of our country, our government and our lives has become.

Israel's Dilemma - Chutzpah Galore - Of Course, They Were Asking for It
By NADIA HIJAB

Israel is stuck. For decades, it has used the same strategy to achieve its objectives and to rout all challengers: overwhelming force. When it meets violence with violence -- even when it uses disproportionate force as in Beirut in 1982 and 2006 and Gaza in 2008 -- Israel claims self-defense and usually manages to spin the facts its way. And, as it has not yet been held to account in any meaningful way, it has seen no reason to change its strategy.

Back Art Of 'Master Illusions'

Mind Control

By John Pilger

How do wars begin? With a “master illusion”, according to Ralph McGehee, one of the CIA’s pioneers in “black propaganda”, known today as “news management”. In 1983, he described to me how the CIA had faked an “incident” that became the “conclusive proof of North Vietnam’s aggression”. This followed a claim, also fake, that North Vietnamese torpedo boats had attacked an American warship in the Gulf of Tonkin in August 1964.

Operation Mini Cast Lead

Mind Control

(Israeli Terrorism by BullShit Journalism... the Protocols of Zion are being used against us before our very eyes, but the US Congressional Pimps are too blind to see... Take the blinders off !!!)

By Gideon Levy

Like in "Mini-Israel," the park where there is everything, but smaller, Israel embarked yesterday on a mini Operation Cast Lead. Like its larger, losing predecessor, this operation had it all: the usual false claim that is was they who had started it - and not the landing of commandos from helicopters on a ship in open sea, away from Israeli territorial waters. There was the claim that the first act of violence came not from the soldiers, but the rioting activists on Mavi Marmara; that the blockade on Gaza is legal and that the flotilla to its shores is against the law - God knows which law.

Suicide By Regressivism

Mind Control

America has spent the last thirty years telling itself how bad its own government is. This has not been an accident, and it has produced precisely the intended effect: a weakened public sector and a discrediting of the concept that government – as a representative of the public interest­ – is a legitimate actor for controlling private interests with private agendas. The damage done has been enormous. Unfortunately, we can’t blame the Ruskies or some other foreign bogeyman for this one. The bad news is that our country has been wrecked. The worse news is that we’ve done it to ourselves.

The Mad Tea Party and the Cloward-Piven Conspiracy Theory

Mind Control

by Richard Kim

Leftists like to say that another world is possible, but I was never quite sure of that until I started reading tea party websites. There, a government of leftists is not only possible, it's on the cusp of seizing permanent power, having broken American capitalism and replaced it with a socialist state. Down that rabbit hole, Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel are communists, and "The Left"--which encompasses everyone from the Democratic Leadership Council to Maoist sectarians--is a disciplined and near omnipotent army marching in lockstep to a decades-old master plan for domination called the "Cloward-Piven strategy" or, as of January 20, 2009, "Cloward-Piven government."

Why don't honest journalists take on Roger Ailes and Fox News?

It is this: Why haven't America's old-school news organizations blown the whistle on Roger Ailes, chief of Fox News, for using the network to conduct a propaganda campaign against the Obama administration -- a campaign without precedent in our modern political history?

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.

Thinker's Quote

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
Mohandas Gandhi

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
