Aaron Swartz Rolls Over in his Grave as We Ignore the Rise of the Privatized Surveillance State (and even pay for it)

Thu, 12/15/2016 - 08:34

by Scott Creighton

What was everyone concerned about back then? That the NSA would track our every move, record all of our calls and spy on us even in the sanctity of our own homes, right?Remember those days?

While that fight was going on, that was the biggest thing in the world. Our constitutional right to be secure in our persons and property was under siege from the big bad GUBMINT and we just had to do something.

That particular “crisis” was created by a CIA employee by the fake name of “Edward Snowden” and his PR team headed up by Glenn Greenwald. It’s what I called the ‘Manufactured Hero” story.

The whole thing was a scam from the very beginning and a few of us out here called it out for what it was immediately. We were called the “Snowden Truthers” and soundly attacked from all sides.

The truth of the matter was, Big Business was licking it’s chops at the prospect of getting CISPA passed through congress in the years before the “Snowden” psyop but they were thwarted by a concerted effort from a lot of online activists who understood that the overall plan was to privatize the surveillance state so they could profit from that aspect of the info they collected and also profit from the selling of that data they harvested.

Aaron Swartz almost single-handedly stopped CISPA the first time around, so they made sure he wasn’t around for their final effort. They “found” him hanging in his closet in New York exactly three months prior to Greenwald’s “Snowden” revelation and just two months prior to a number of Big Business representatives going to congress and demanding they pass CISPA in the new congress.

How would you feel if I told you the NSA was putting tracking devices on your car so they could record every place you went, how long you stayed there and even what you said in the car while going there?

How would you feel if I told you the NSA wanted you to approve putting a device in your child’s car that would allow them to track every move they make while evaluating their driving habits, while also listening to and recording everything your kids says in his/her car with their friends?

You would be beside yourself in outrage, wouldn’t you? How dare Big GUBMINT spy on me and my kids all day long!

But when Big Business does it for even more nefarious reasons…. you not only say nothing, not a damn peep… but you pay the assholes for the service.

Progressive’s Snapshot track’s your car’s every move and location data, just like we feared the Big Bad Gubmint would. They say they will “reward” you with a lower rate, just so long as you drive the way their actuaries say you should. If you don’t, they could charge you more. They can also sell your travel info to the government, to the CIA or to your local police department since technically, once you install the thing, they own your driving history.

Verizon’s Hum is a little less subtle. This thing tracks the location history and your kid’s driving habits and it also openly admits it has a microphone built in (Progressive’s Snapshot probably does as well but they don’t mention it in the ads) so you (and others) can listen to what is being said in your child’s car.

If you get a chance, you should read this woman’s take on Hum and the damage it does to the development of the parent/child bond. It’s insightful for different reasons, but ultimately, it’s also about the corporatization of every element of our lives including family.

With Progressive and Verizon’s tracking/monitoring systems, everything about your travels away from the home is recorded, categorized, analyzed and monetized.

But what about in the home? Surely we must wish to feel secure there.

How would you feel if I told you the NSA would put recording devices in every room in your house, including your bedroom or your kid’s bedrooms? What if I told you those devices would listen to every noise made in your home and broadcast everything via WiFi to a cloud someplace that would store it all for later analysis?

How would you feel if I told you they were also planning on putting video cameras in each of those rooms as well for the same purpose?

You would absolutely have a fit and swear to die with a gun in your hand before you let Big Brother watch and listen to everything in your home. Don’t say you wouldn’t.

But when Big Business becomes Big Brother… well… let’s get our checkbooks.

The Echo system is interesting because they openly admit they use something called Echo Spacial Perception which is basically the same thing featured in that Dark Knight movie where they used soundings from cell phones to create a map of the city. It’s like a sub’s sonar system. With that, Amazon can and does create a 3D map of your home and they are able to essentially watch everything you do along with listening to every sound in your house. That’s why it’s called “Echo”

Also keep in mind, Amazon is Jeff Bezos, the guy who bought up the Washington Post and published all those lies about Donald Trump trying to influence the election. Then he published articles about “fake news” trying to shut down free speech on the internet. Plus, Bezos, the CIA and the Clintonistas go way back.

And one more thing: Echo is not only constantly streaming info on you and your family to whomever is listening and recording all that information but… it’s also attached to your bank account so you can order pizza without having to take out your cell phone. It has direct access to your checking accounts and authorization to use them.

Google’s ‘Home’ is just about as scary minus the Dark Knight echo soundings of your kitchen. If there is one Big Brother Business I don’t want monitoring my humble abode, it’s Google. But, for a price, they will gladly spy on you and your family all day long and when you have a question about something… they will be sure to provide you with the “truth”

Then there is “Nest” and the myriad of companies like it.

Nest is the ultimate sovereign citizen’s worst NSA nightmare.

Every square inch of your house is covered. Cameras to record everything you do and microphones to record everything said. It even has speakers so they can talk to you (and tell you what to do and what not to do) or you can pull it up on your APP from your phone (more on that in a minute) and speak to family members sneaking a sip out of your whisky bottle.

Again, everything recorded, categorized, analyzed and monetized by Big Business Big Brother for their purposes.

All of this stuff.. ALL OF IT… goes to the NSA mind you. Every damn bit of it. But it also goes to the DNC and the RNC if they pay for it. It goes to Microsoft or Exxon if they care to buy it as well. It can also go to your local police department as they are increasingly in the business of creating predictor models which tell them (supposedly) which families are more likely than not to fight back if someone kicks in their doors at 3am.

Are you an activist opposed to Monsanto polluting the world? Don’t buy any of this crap because they’ll definitely pay for a subscription to your file.

Have you recently fled the cult of Scientology and currently helping to get the word out about how corrupt and dangerous that so-called “religion” is? Then you definitely don’t want “Nest” in your nest.

This privatization of the surveillance state is unbelievable and all of it came about after the “Snowden” psyop and warnings from people like myself who tried too say all this manufactured “crisis” would do would be to empower Big Business like we have never seen before. CISPA turned into CISA and got passed a year after the USA Freedom Act which privatized the surveillance state and made all of this possible.

So they spy on you and track you in your car and they spy on you all day long in your home. What else have they decided to do since the “Snowden” psyop?

Well, notice how many free APPs are out there today?

These APPs, many come with the services I list above, do the same thing. But the difference is, they track you and spy on you everywhere.

People take their cell phones with them everywhere. Even from room to room in their homes. And they are constantly communicating on them. All that data goes up to the clouds and is processed, analyzed, categorized and monetized.

Why do you think a company pays an A-list celeb like Arnold Schwarzenegger to do TV spots for their “free” APP? What do you think Pokemon Go was all about?

Are they simply recording everything you do, say, text and search on that phone or are they also using your expensive devise as their echo sounding system so they can map everywhere?

Phone companies are making their services cheaper and cheaper and some actually give you high-end cell phones for free for using their service. How do they make that money back?

They sell your info. They sell it to the NSA, they sell it to other Big Businesses, they sell it anyone, including foreign nations, because thanks to “Edward Snowden” and Glenn Greenwald, they are now allowed to do that without consequences.

This is the reality of the world we live in today.

A few of us tried to stop it. Aaron Swartz did for a time, but they killed him for it.

Every time I see a commercial for “Home” or “Echo” I get a little sad because I think back to the good old days when folks would be just as up in arms about Bezos spying on them and making millions of dollars doing it as they would if they thought the CIA or the NSA were doing it.

Today, folks just sit back and do or say nothing about it and even in some cases, they’re ignorant enough to actually pay for it.

I feel for Aaron. He gave his life for nothing.

New McCarthyism Goes Global: Panicked Apologist for the New World Order Blame Putin and “Russian Hacking” for Brexit

Wed, 12/14/2016 - 07:31

by Scott Creighton

The rising tide of anti-neoliberal sentiment is sweeping across the globe and as a result, globalism’s proponents are getting desperate.

Populist-centered uprisings of all sorts are being seen in every hemisphere on the planet as advocates for the “New American Century” find their economic ideology being increasingly rejected by the people and rightly so because it is diametrically opposed to the needs and the wishes of the vast majority of them.

The advances these globalists thave made since 9/11, what was once described lovingly as the New World Order by George H. W. Bush and others (corporatist fascism bound and ruled by financial/banking elites and the neoliberal technocrats who serve them), are now under serious threat of being undone as millions upon millions of people begin to understand the savage and undemocratic nature of neoliberal globalization.

Here in the states the establishment Dems (fake-left, neoliberal, “centrist”, corporatist Dems) have finally landed upon the Russians as their preferred excuse as to why Hillary Clinton’s coronation was thwarted.

It should be noted that Hillary Clinton didn’t even win the primary contest. Bernie Sanders won that effort but it was stolen from him not only by the supposedly neutral DNC but also by the various election machine companies who do the real hacking in American elections because Bernie was a populist and a half-assed socialist.

They blamed James Comey, they blamed the Bernie or bust crowd, they blamed third candidates and they blamed racist, misogynistic, xenophobic clan-members before they finally landed on the Russians as the reason Hillary was denied “her turn” in the White House.

None of that was true. Hillary was a lying, criminal, globalist war-monger who is bought and paid for by the financial/banking elites who never once gave a crap about the real issues facing America’s people. Since they couldn’t run their campaign on her record or her personality, all they had left was identity politics and a level of fear mongering about the potential Trump presidency that would have made Joseph McCarthy blush with jealousy.

Recently, after the Jill Stein recount destabilization campaign failed to delay enough states from officially certifying their election results to keep Trump from being named the next president, they embarked on another ploy to undermine the democratic process here in the States. Now they say they want the lying CIA to come over and share some of their lies with the Electoral College voters prior to their meeting on Dec. 19th where they will cast their votes as directed by the people and officially elect Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States.

This latest attempt to “fix” their problem of Americans “voting the wrong way”, being led by the likes of Nancy Pelosi (through her daughter who Nancy made an EC voter and a Super-delegate) and John Podesta (Clinton campaign chief and probably the brains behind Jill Stein’s “recount” destabilization effort) will fail. Have no worries about that.

It will fail because typically, EC voters are political wannabes who would find it increasingly difficult to vote against their party’s nominee as well as against their constituency’s will. It would be political suicide especially since Donald Trump has been making all the “right” choices when it comes to his cabinet picks (globalists, billionaires, neoliberal scumbags who want to privatize the very departments they are going to be in charge of … and of course, the generals)

Though this attempt to thwart the will of the people will fail, ultimately it has a more sinister objective at the heart of it and that is to de-legitimize any collective mandate from the people that stands opposed to their globalist machinations.

They simply cannot allow history to show the majority of the people having a different ideological view of the world than that which they hold.

Ever since the Lewis Powell Memo of ’71, they have been working diligently to remake the conscience of population. It’s not even hidden anymore in terms of their propaganda coming from the MSM and Hollywood.

Just look at what they MSM did in the run-up to this election. They couldn’t fathom the notion that they failed to condition the public adequately to make them vote the way they wanted them to and in the end, the day after the election, you could see the abject disappointment and almost shame on their faces as they knew they had failed in their stated mission. They couldn’t understand it. How could people have seen their endless tirades against Trump and what he stood for and then go out and vote against Hillary? The pundits were left scratching their heads like a pitcher who is pulled in the first inning after giving up 10 runs. Their best simply wasn’t good enough to overcome the tidal wave of populist revulsion at the status quo which Clinton represented.

So what do they do when they fail to manipulate a population enough to get them to vote against their own best interests? Well, like they did in Palestine when the people voted for Hamas instead of the other party that was in bed with Israel and the United States, they have to retroactively de-legitimize the election itself.

The CIA and the State Department have been doing this for decades. That’s nothing new. The fact that they are doing it now, here in the States, is a bit of a development. But for the most part, it is part and parcel of what those agencies do every day.

When the people speak and they don’t say what you want them to say, you have to find a way to make an argument that they “really” didn’t say it.

Across the pond some British MPs are trying the same kind of effort with the Brexit vote. They are blaming “Russian hacking” for that outward public anti-globalization statements as well.

Labor MP Bradshaw was openly ridiculed in parliament for making this baseless, paranoid, McCarthyite accusation… and well he should be. It is ridiculous to suggest that the Russians hacked the Brexit vote but as a globalist, he has to because they cant entertain the notion that the so-called “smartest people in the room” are failing in their efforts to make Brits and other Europeans dumb enough to vote against their best interests as well.

This guy says it’s “now proven” the Russians hacked the U.S. election which is complete and total bunk. He then says it’s “probable” that the Russians hacked the Brexit referendum “though we have no evidence of that” and goes on to suggest the upcoming French and German elections will definitely be hacked by the Ruskies.

He fully expects the will of the people in the upcoming elections to mirror that of the people of the U.S. and Britain and is trying his best to undermine the results, before they even happen.

That’s how desperate they are.

It’s nice watching them squirm like this, but remember, these guys hate democracy everywhere else in the world. They openly work against democracy and choose brutal military dictatorships whenever they can because they provide a level of ‘stability’ democracy doesn’t.

So when you think about it, it’s pretty unnerving. What are they really going after here? Trump? Brexit? Putin? Or is it something else?

The chickens are coming home to roost folks. Its the only way these guys can hang onto their Project for a New American Century. Ending democracy, or what little democracy they allow us, in favor of stability all because the ebil Rooskies have infiltrated our election systems and we can no longer be counted on to vote the right way.

Scary stuff in a ridiculous package.

Just another day in the Shining City on the Hill.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

More Fake News from CNN: Unsupported Claims of Mass Executions Carried Out by Legitimate Government in Aleppo

Tue, 12/13/2016 - 08:35

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The bullshit “activists said” story has made it’s way to Reuters and the fake-left Huffington Post already. Someone once said a lie will make it halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on it’s shoes or something like that. Fake news sure travels fast these days.

CNN has produced a litany of fake news in the past usually centered on supporting one illegal war of aggression or another on behalf of our global “national interests”. If you recall, Amber Lyon admitted CNN was paid to create fake news by the U.S. government. CNN lies on a regular basis in support of whatever agenda the masters of the universe have qued up at the time. Whether it’s a regime change operation or endlessly demonizing a candidate who doesn’t particularly serve the interests of the 1%, CNN is your go-to PR outlet for fake news.

Today they are parroting a breathless claim about the Syrian government committing mass executions of Aleppo’s civilians as they drive the “moderate rebels” out of eastern Aleppo.

It is a completely reprehensible and baseless piece of disgusting propaganda designed to aid various “national interests” in their efforts to generate public support for one last President Peace Prize “humanitarian” bombing campaign.

“Forces loyal to the Syrian regime have been entering homes in the last pockets of Aleppo held by rebels and shooting people on the spot, the United Nations has said.

A spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said it had been told that 82 civilians, including women and children, were shot in their homes or on the streets on Monday…

Activists said anyone with links to the rebels who seized control of the enclave in 2012 was being hunted down.

“Every hour, butcheries are carried out,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.” CNN

The “activists” that make up the core of this claim are indeed the “moderate” terrorists that we have employed to terrorize the people of Syria in an effort to force a regime change on the country on behalf of oil and LNG interests.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is not really an organization and it’s not actually in Syria. It’s made up of one guy living in London who has been producing fake news on behalf of the regime change operation for the past 5 years.

And that note that CNN uses to give their fake news credibility, their claim that the United Nations is saying this is happening is also just as dishonest and painfully transparent as the rest of their fake news story.

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein who just happens to be Jordanian royalty, married to Princess Sarah Zeid and was formerly Jordan’s Ambassador to the United States of America from 2007 to 2010.

Jordan has been funding, training and supporting the “moderate” terrorists in Syria since the very beginning of Obama’s regime change campaign back in 2011.

Jordan has stepped up its support for neighboring Syria’s political and military opposition, including allowing some light arms to flow across the border, according to Syrian rebels and an Arab official familiar with the operation.

Several shipments of arms—including assault rifles, Russian-designed antitank missiles and ammunition—have been delivered to the border in Jordanian military trucks and then taken into Syria by rebel brigades, according to Syrian rebel fighters.” Wall Street Journal, 2012

This report by CNN is not news. It’s a line of propaganda being offered by three elements of Obama’s regime change operation to CNN without a single shred of evidence to support it and yet, CNN runs with the story on the front page of their website and at the top of every hour on their “news” network.

It’s complete and total bunk. It’s “Yellow cake from Niger” or “mobile biological weapons labs” being retooled and megaphoned to the public for the same purpose.

In Aleppo right now, the Syrian army is currently routing our destabilization forces with the help of Iran, Turkey and Russia. The people who have been trapped in eastern Aleppo and used as human shields by our “moderate” terrorist proxy army are welcoming the Syria forces, glad to be free from these child-beheading animals our CIA loves to hire for these kinds of jobs.

What CNN is doing isn’t even close to what we used to call legitimate journalism. I mean, you couldn’t even run an ad on television for a penis enlargement pill with supporting evidence of it’s success rate like that which CNN has offered up in their war-mongering call to increase violence in another country.

I mean, you can’t go out and produce a commercial selling cola to people with that many unsubstantiated lies in it. So how the hell can a “news” outlet get away with producing a totally dishonest infomercial like this selling a war of aggression that they hope will result in the killing of hundreds if not thousands of people in Syria?

The world is turned upside down, is it not? You can’t openly lie about your penis pill on TV but you can damn sure lie your ass off when it comes to selling death and destruction on behalf of our “national interests”

CNN ends their propaganda effort with their standard legal disclaimer: they say they cant verify any of the bullshit they are reporting as fact. That tells you they know its a lie, but the Mockingbirds over there at the fascist news network don’t give a crap just so long as a percentage of their brain-dead viewers buy into what they are selling without taking the time to think about it.

Just amazing.

The Jill Stein Election Destabilization Campaign has Failed So John Podesta Tries a New Disruption Tactic to Undermine U.S. Election

Tue, 12/13/2016 - 07:25

by Scott Creighton

Having failed to “undermine the bedrock of our democracy” with his Jill Stein “recount” effort, John Podesta launches a new destabilization campaign to stop the process of the election and install the war-criminal and serial liar, Hillary Clinton, in the White House.

After careful consideration and many hours of research I concluded that Jill Stein’s recount efforts in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan were not about protecting the integrity of our deeply flawed election system as much as they were about delaying the Electoral College voters from being able to certify their election totals before the “safe harbor” deadline of Dec. 13th thus keeping Donald Trump from being officially named the president elect on Dec. 19th when the voters actually get together and officially cast their votes as prescribed by the voters they represent.

In my earliest article on the subject, I wrote about how Stein was working with various DNC operatives on her recount effort and afterward I wrote about how most (if not all) of the Green Party leaders refused to back her efforts because they too thought of it as backing efforts to redo the election and install Hillary Clinton in the White House.

Leading “alternative” left-leaning journalists like the Sane Progressive and Jimmy Dore couldn’t seem to wrap their heads around the concept in spite of the fact that so many real liberals from the Green party, including Stein’s own running mate, condemned her efforts as disingenuous.

Last week Pennsylvania refused to give in to the pressures from DNC insiders as they denied the recount effort officially. They have certified their election results. Stein, still hoping to serve her masters, filed a federal lawsuit to stop them but the Trump campaign countered that effort and the Pennsylvania results will be officially recorded.

Wisconsin has finished their recount effort as of this weekend and they are also officially filing their results. Trump ended up with 131 more votes.

Michigan is still up in the air but it doesn’t matter. They needed every one of those three states to withhold their Electoral College votes in order to stop Trump’s victory. With Wisconsin and Pennsylvania certifying results, Stein’s efforts have come to a close.

Essentially, the Jill Stein election destabilization campaign has failed. Enough EC votes will be turned in today for Donald Trump to reach the key 270 vote total needed to secure the election.

Electronic voting machines have not been proven to have been manipulated or even that they could be. Remember, Stein’s original filing for Wisconsin focused ENTIRELY on the fake news that Russia “could have” influenced the election.

For those of us who value REAL investigations into the “black box” voting systems we have here in the States (I have been covering this type of election fraud for years) I would like too say Jill Stein’s bullshit effort, probably sponsored by John Podesta himself, has set us back at least a decade. Now that her BS “investigation” is complete, folks in the future will look to this example as proof that there is no election rigging in our current system.

Thanks Jill. Hope you got paid well for that.

In the wake of this failure John Podesta has embarked on a new effort to stop the will of the people.

He and 11 of the 535 Electoral College voters are trying to get them to postpone the official vote scheduled to take place on Dec. 19th so they can be briefed by the CIA on their fake news that Russia “hacked” the election. That’s the same argument made in Jill Stein’s first official filing to the state of Wisconsin isn’t it? What a coincidence.

The effort by the 11 EC voters is lead by Nancy Pelosi’s daughter and includes 10 democrats and 1 republican.

“On Monday, a group of 10 presidential electors led by Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, demanded to be briefed on Russian hacking into the election. The CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian agents were interfering with the election, and the CIA now believes the goal was to aid Trump.” The Atlantic

What they want is to have Capitalism’s Invisible Army meet with all 535 EC voters in order to present them with their fabricated propaganda regarding Vladamir Putin hacking the election. At least, that is what they are saying.

What they really want is to disrupt the election process long enough to nullify the election results which, according to our laws, would allow the member of the House of Representatives to elect the next president.

This undemocratic effort is being led by John Podesta. As I have shown, he was the one behind the Jill Stein destabilization effort and he is also behind this new one that came along just after it became clear his first effort with the now discredited Jill Stein failed. A Tweet from Alex Seitz-Wald shows how Podesta and the Clinton campaign have “gotten behind” this effort, just like they did with the Jill Stein recount campaign. Notice the language used in Podesta’s statement is almost a word for word recycling of Jill Stein’s first filing with the Wisconsin election commission asking for a recount.

Using fake news to undermine the bedrock  of our democracy, John Podesta and Hillary Clinton continue their desperate campaign to usurp the will of the people and steal the White House just like they stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. The fact that they were able to smear their vile stench on Jill Stein, the Green Party and the REAL voting integrity movement in the process is truly unfortunate.

This effort is likely to fail. Trump, even without Michigan, will have far more EC voters casting votes for him (as the voters they represent wanted them to do) than against him and even if a few vote against the wishes of the people they represent, he will still be confirmed on the 19th as the next president.

But that gives Podesta and his ilk a little time to mount a major propaganda campaign against Russia in order to further their efforts at getting the EC voters that propaganda briefing from the CIA before voting.

I wonder if the likes of Jimmy Dore and the Sane Progressive will take up that cause as well.

But you know I wont. As much as I detest Trump and the fascist neoliberal cabinet of globalist, billionaires and generals he is creating, I cannot and will not support the ongoing effort to “undermine the bedrock of our democracy” and you guys should be very wary of any so-called “independent” voice that does.

Understanding this Weekend’s Kurdish Terror Attacks in Turkey and the Wave of New McCarthyism

Mon, 12/12/2016 - 08:41

by Scott Creighton

The greatest threat to the well-being of the United States and the rest of humanity is the out of control and desperate post 9/11 “Capitalism’s Invisible Army” (CIA) armed with their proxy mercenary armies (Kurds and Kurd”ISIS”), “moderate” terrorists (Free Syrian Army), al-Qaeda off-shoots (al-Nusra) and seemingly endless piles of unregulated cash (thanks to congress and all that heroin we are cultivating over in Afghanistan).

Contrary to popular belief, the Greater Kurdistan project is not dead on arrival. The recent defeat of Hillary Clinton (and her minions of global instability) in the recent U.S. presidential election caused ripples of concern throughout the ranks of the CIA’s “moderate” terrorist cottage industry in the Middle East. However, these animals didn’t’ crawl away to lick their wounds. Instead, like wounded predators, they are pressing forward in a fevered pitch to rundown and feast on their prey before they become to weak to accomplish their task.

What’s happening in Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran is quite simple. One graphic makes it all very clear.

Qatar, our closest ally in the Middle East and financial backer of many of the “moderate” terrorists looking to force a regime change in Syria (interesting: Trump’s latest Sec. of State contender, Exxon CEO, has a vested interest in the Qatar LNG pipeline question as Exxon is the leading foreign investment partner to Qatar’s state-own LNG industry) along with Saudi Arabia have a very serious reason for wanting Assad to go and a more friendly regime to be installed in Turkey: total global hegemony in the future LNG market.

Russia and Iran, on the other hand, have damn good reason to want Assad to stay (also, notice, as I have been writing in the past, the Russians would need to cut a deal with the Kurds of Iraq, as they have done apparently, because Syria has no border with Iran and their pipeline must travel through northern Iraq (currently controlled by the Kurds, unless they decide to bring it all the way up through Turkey) because Assad fell into hard times the day after he announced he would not sign the Qatar-Turkey Pipeline deal.

“Secret cables and reports by the U.S., Saudi and Israeli intelligence agencies indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas link. In 2009, according to WikiLeaks, soon after Bashar Assad rejected the Qatar pipeline, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria.”

— Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria, Politico

This also explains in very simple terms one aspect of all of this that leaves many researchers and independent journalists scratching their heads: Recep Edogan’s refusal to back Assad’s continued presidency in Syria (though he recently changed his mind on that one)

The answer to that question is simple: the Russian/Iran/Syria pipeline has nothing to do with Turkey whereas the Qatar/Jordan/Syrian pipeline depends on Turkey serving as the jump-off point to the whole of Europe.

“The $10 billion, 1,500km pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey….would have linked Qatar directly to European energy markets via distribution terminals in Turkey… The Qatar/Turkey pipeline would have given the Sunni Kingdoms of the Persian Gulf decisive domination of world natural gas markets and strengthen Qatar, America’s closest ally in the Arab world. ….” RFK Jr.

This is why Recep Erdogan, not a fan of the IMF and their globalist “loan” program (and generally opposed to neoliberalization and the crippling austerity that goes with it) turned a blind eye to his CIA-backed military as they used Turkey and it’s border with Syria to funnel arms and terrorists to our regime change operation.

This is also why Erdogan would turn a blind eye to those same CIA-backed military leaders allowing KurdISIS to steal oil from Syrian fields and then ship them over Turkish borders to waiting Israeli tankers: it would economically destabilize the Syrian government, bringing about a regime change that would ultimately allow Turkey to become a major player in developing LNG industries.

Everyone was on board with the plan from Qatar to Saudi Arabia to Jordan to Turkey. Everyone except Basar al-Assad, who said he wouldn’t sign the deal because he was going to stay loyal to Russia.

This also explains why it was that Russia, for a time, pressured Assad to allow for the creation of a “Western Kurdistan” or “Rojava” in part of Syria. The Russians HAD to keep the Kurds on their side otherwise they would find themselves in a position much like that the U.S., Qatar and Turkey find themselves in today.

Erdogan engaged in Syria on behalf of what he saw as Turkey’s best interests. His attacks focused on KurdISIS in an effort to keep them from taking a large part of Syrian territory.

This serves his interests in that were the Kurds to carve themselves a piece of Syria that ran along the Turkish border as they had planned, then, Russia could simply cut one deal with the Kurds and run their pipeline from Iran straight to the Mediterranean Sea and Erdogan would be concerned that part of that deal would involve getting Russia to help them steal a part of southern and eastern Turkey for “Northern Kurdistan”

By fighting the Kurds in order to prevent this project creep, Erdogan has made himself and his country a target of the folks who are backing the Greater Kurdistan project and that includes the United States, Israel and their “interests”

This is why there have been 17 terrorist attacks inside Turkey in 2016 alone making them the most targeted nation this year by far.

Recently, Erdogan seems to have changed his mind on the question of Assad remaining in power. This is a great concern to those who are still pushing for regime change and their pipeline deal as explained by globalist Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations:

“Increasingly Turkey is gathering behind the Assad Government… Is far more concerned about Kurds then getting rid of Assad Government” Richard Haass, from Penny’s blog

Ironically, just as soon as Haass made this statement, Kurdish terrorists attacked still more civilians in Turkey, vowing afterward to destabilize the country until Erdogan leaves office. Of the 17 terror attacks in Turkey this year, all were conducted by either the Kurds or “ISIS” leaving me with still more evidence that “ISIS” is nothing more than a branch of the Kurdish regime change proxy army in Syria and that they are fighting on behalf of the Kurds in that country, not against them.

In retaliation for the new terror attacks in his country, Erdogan gave the order to bomb PKK locations in Turkey, but he also stepped up attacks this morning in Syria targeting “ISIS” positions.

Apparently Erdogan understands the connection as well.

The cowardly terror attacks in Istanbul have killed 44 people and left another 150 wounded. The Gladio 2.0 operation timed as the West, Israel and Qatar seem to have lost faith in Erdogan maintaining his faith in their pipeline deal.

Perhaps that is because Russia has promised Erdogan that he and Turkey will remain a valuable part of the future of the LNG industry anyway with the proposed Turkish Stream deal.

However you look at it, Syria and the Greater Kurdistan project are still in play in the great energy wars division of the Project for a New American Century.

Some would try to have you believe in these kinds of independent journalism venues that Recep himself is too blame for the the Kurds’ terror attacks this weekend. Don’t fall for that disinformation. It comes straight from the likes of Richard Haass and his Israeli friends who have a vested interest in seeing Greater Kurdistan born unto the Middle East.

Penny sums it up nicely over at her blog:

Not a false flag perpetrated by the AKP or Erdogan. Less stability is  not in their interest.
No more then it was in Assad’s interest.
No more then it was in Gadaffi’s interest.

Instability is the stock and trade of Capitalism’s Invisible Army. Proxy warriors, terrorism and Gladio operations are what they do in service to our “national interests”

Is it any wonder that they are supposedly behind this “anonymous” report to congress that Russia “hacked” our elections and handed a win to Donald Trump? This new wave of McCarthyism in America is absolutely centered on this pipeline power struggle in the Middle East. The future of the whole of the LNG industry in Europe depends on it.

This might be why Russia finally agreed to reduce oil production allowing for the increase in fuel prices. They are appeasing various Middle Eastern interests, specifically Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

This also might explain why Trump has suddenly announced his consideration of the CEO of Exxon as a candidate for his Secretary of State.

If he wishes to appease our “national interests” there’s no better way than appointing one of their star commanders to rule over the department which dictates foreign policy.

This might also explain why Trump has publicly embarrassed the CIA by refusing their daily briefings. Trump has made it clear he does not value the integrity of their intelligence and with good reason. Looks to me like someone in the CIA fears for their cushy government job as Trumps inauguration day looms ever closer.

Clearly the CIA, the Council on Foreign Relations and all related globalist parties (like KurdISIS) have not given up on their pipeline hegemony dreams simply because Americans voted the wrong way and elected a neoliberal as their president who claims he opposes nation building exercises. The jury is still out on that one by the way.

So like wounded jackals, these deep state operators are lashing out at anyone they can to keep themselves in the game. In the hunt.

Unfortunately for those people in Turkey they will never understand, or may never understand, that this is less about Kurds and “Western Kurdistan” or Greater Kurdistan, than it is about global energy hegemony and the future of the LNG industry. They, like so many millions of others since 9/11 are the victims of the designers of the project for the new American century and the great pipeline wars. Kurdish autonomy is both the by-product and the smoke-screen.

If the grieving families need to look to someone for responsibility for this attack, like so many other victims in the Middle East, they need to look West.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

Corporate Neoliberal Dems Double-down on “Russians DID IT!” Fake News Story in Their Ongoing New McCartyite Campaign

Fri, 12/09/2016 - 12:59

by Scott Creighton

President Obama is ordering a report from his homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, on the numbers of electronic security breaches that took place during the 2016 presidential election process. Presumably they will be attempting to find out exactly where the Clinton email server leaks, the DNC email server leaks and the John Podesta email leaks originated from since, according to the story, they were all done with the malicious intention of effecting the outcome of the election.

Of course, the rabid Clintonites still can’t seem to understand that the vast majority of the people in this country did not want to vote for a corrupt war-criminal who was pretending (and doing a poor job of it mind you) to be a liberal and the emails didn’t matter in the slightest. They went along with the “it’s her turn” mantra and then all they could do in terms of an actual campaign is offer up one bit of identity politics-based fear-mongering after another thinking that would be enough to secure her the victory. They coupled that with endless slander from the corporate neoliberal MSM targeting Trump and his supporters like it was going out of style. That and the fact that Hillary was a woman was supposed to be all it took… but I guess not.

So now they take this new story to mean Obama is looking to prove once and for all the Russians rigged the election to steal victory from Killary and hand power to The Donald as was made clear in this article posted by the flagship fake news website for the New McCarthyite Dems, the Huffington Post:

“The U.S. intelligence community announced on Oct. 7 that it believes hackers supported by the Russian government were responsible for meddling in the election process, including by targeting the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton adviser John Podesta and other notable political figures, like former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Congressional Democrats have ramped up their pressure for more details on Russian activities since President-elect Donald Trump, who has been notably friendly toward Russia, triumphed over Clinton on Nov. 8. Last month, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee sent Obama a letter asking him to declassify information on the Russian interference. Earlier this week, Democrats on key House committees dealing with national security sent their own letter, asking that all members of Congress be informed of everything the intelligence community knows about Russian activity in 2016.” Huffington Post

The sum total of the evidence presented by the U.S. intelligence community (which is only comprised of the Department of Homeland Security, run by a guy who made it known in public he thought Trump’s policies would be dangerous for America) is as follows:

“The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts” Homeland Security Oct. 7th press release

That’s a full blown “nothing” in terms of evidence. “Consistent with”? “Russian-directed“? That’s not evidence of anything, ergo, it’s just as much of a “fake news” story as “pizzagate”. And in fact, there is a lot more evidence to suggest the owner of Comet Pizza has some serious pedo issues than there is that Vladamir Putin had anything at all to do with all those pre-election leaks.

What’s really telling is this line from the HuffPuff piece. See if you can figure out what it means:

“Congress will be briefed on the report and Obama’s team will determine how much to share with the public once they see the results, Monaco said..” Huffington Post

Now that is a very interesting statement, isn’t it? Obama investigating these serious breeches of security will only promise in the end to let the mob know whatever he deems fit to let us know.

Why is that important?

Because the damn leaks didn’t come from Russia with love or without it.

They came from either an insider who leaked the information in all cases or they came from someone in the intelligence community right here at home who hacked the systems involved and took the emails.

Of course the last possibility is, Big Business took em and gave em to Wikileaks et al. Or someone with access working for Big Business. God only knows how many individuals can get their hands on anything from anyone they want now that we’ve allowed them to privatize intelligence collection here in fascist Merika!.

If it turns out the NSA is behind all of this or some faction of the CIA who’s sick and tired of endless wars of aggression across the globe, you think for a minute President Peace Prize will tell us the truth about it? Of course not. That’s why he’s already letting us know we may never see the unredacted version of that report.

But that wont  stop the corporate neoliberal Dems from doubling-down on their “the Russians Did It!” fake news story. In fact, is just adds fuel to their fire.

After many briefings by our intelligence community, it is clear to me that the Russians hacked our democratic institutions and sought to interfere in our elections and sow discord,” Schiff said. “In this, tragically, they succeeded.

Right. Hillary lost because of the Russians and all the discord here in the country is their fault as well.

I wonder if they will shut down congress when they get around to silencing all the fake news producing institutions. I wonder if they’ll shut down the Huffington Post. My guess is they wont. Just a guess though.


Neoliberal News of the Day – Dec. 9th, 2016: Being Fisted by the Invisible Hand and Getting Trickled Down All Over

Fri, 12/09/2016 - 06:36

by Scott Creighton

(I have to go over to SS this morning so I’ll be posting this and getting back to the website a little later today)

– Hillary Clinton, dragged out of hiding, demands “public/private action on “fake news epidemic” – Clinton, like Trump and Obama and Bush (etc. etc. etc.) is a pure neoliberal. They simply can’t communicate anymore without trying to normalize some aspect of neoliberal ideology. Yesterday they dragged her out of hiding and propped her up on stage so she could send a message to her fake-left followers about the need to get Google and Facebook and congress (listed in order of importance) to shut down free speech on the internet and the excuse she gave was of course the manufactured crisis of Comet Pizza and the “pizzagate” psyop. Speaking on Capitol Hill she said:

“It’s now clear that so-called ‘fake news’ can have real world consequences…It’s imperative that leaders from the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives,”

Notice the lack of daylight between Big Business and government in this woman’s mind. Google needs to “protect our democracy… and innocent lives”. Google? Defender of freedom? John Galt couldn’t have said it any better. Neither could Mussolini for that matter.

– Donald Trump is creating the most purely fascist cabinet ever installed by a president of this country (maybe not more fascist than any of the puppet dictators we installed in third-world countries over the years, but he’s trying) – “Because I want people that made a fortune! Because now they are negotiating [for] you, OK?” said Donald Trump when asked why he has already assembled the richest cabinet in the history of presidents. Any Trump fan who thinks these greedy, neoliberal assholes are going to be “negotiating for you” needs to grow up. Like Obama fans who refused to see the signs as President Peace Prize padded his cabinet with lobbyists and millionaires and former Bush appointees,  Trump fans have had their heads surgically implanted in their rectums if they think their Randian hero represents anything close to anti-establishment “CHANGE”

He even made the CEO of Carl’s Jr. into his Sec. of Labor and if anyone saw that movie “Idiocracy’ the irony is too much to take (brought to you by Carl’s Jr.)

– President Elect Trump refuses to dis-invest himself from his own Big Business even plans to stay on as Executive Producer of his staged “reality” show – Trump has a show on NBC which he says he will continue to work for once he takes office. How many celebrities are going to want to be on his show if the president is the Exec. Producer? Will Trump do the final “you’re fired” scene in the Oval Office with that other neoliberal retard celebrity politician who does the show now? He wont sell off his assets and he wont place his investments in a blind trust (which aren’t really blind anyway). And it appears his son-in-law will end up working in the White House while his daughter is still invested in his business. This sets a terrific precedent for the billionaire class who fully expect to hold every “elected” office in the county by 2024. They couldn’t be happier. Wall Street couldn’t be happier. Carl’s Jr. couldn’t be happier.

Between Clinton’s call for a public/private shut down of the internet and Trump’s installation of what can only be described as his new Executive Branch Board of Directors, neoliberalism (the economic ideology that MOST AMERICANS thought they were voting against this election cycle (Sanders voters and misinformed Trump voters)) like the economic brick dropped on Chile in ’73, is being rammed into D.C. like the Washington Consensus never has before.

In short, we’re being fisted by the invisible hand and all that “trickle down” you’re about to feel ain’t champagne boys and girls.

If you think the sudden move to clamp down on free speech is on behalf of President Peace Prize, you had better think again.

“As I suggested in these pages previously, what we are experiencing is the pathologization (or the “abnormalization”) of political dissent, i.e., the systematic stigmatization of any and all forms of non-compliance with neoliberal consensus reality. Political distinctions like “left” and “right” are disappearing, and are being replaced by imponderable distinctions like “normal” and “abnormal,” “true” and “false,” and “real” and “fake.” Such distinctions do not lend themselves to argument. They are proffered to us as axiomatic truths, empirical facts which no normal person would ever dream of contradicting. In place of competing political philosophies, the neoliberal intelligentsia is substituting a simpler choice, “normality” or “abnormality.” CJ Hopkins, CounterPunch

Mr. Hopkins seems to get it. Though he does underestimate Trump’s ability to bend as the winds of neoliberalism blow his way. Hopkins seems to believe Trump will be falsely painted as the Manchurian Candidate as Trump himself nominates one neoliberal billionaire John Galt after another while simultaneously running his diminished expectations tour, trying to prepare his fan-base for the betrayals of the future.

Jill Stein’s campaign to push the recounts in three key states past the “safe harbor” deadline is still continuing with the courts providing ample pretext for the delays. Come Dec. 13th we are going to see something rather special develop over here in the land of the Big PX.

Maybe from now on we wont even bother with holding elections. At first the millionaires and billionaires who represent Big Business in America from the House of Representative will just get together and select a new CEO for America™

Or you know what? Maybe they’ll just skip the pretense and the middle man and let Chamber of Commerce pick our next glorious leader kind of like the Catholics pick a new Pope. When the black smoke turns white, the deal is done and Bill Gates or Oprah or one of the Walton clan is the next Commercer in Chief.

It’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks boys and girls. As Trump and his family of vapid silver-spooners try to position their sugar daddy as the end-all-be-all of neoliberal presidents before what appears to be an inevitable vote in congress and Hillary runs around looking like death warmed over pleading for Google to save the children, they are already offering up “fake news” killing proposals in congress and the glorious public/private corporations are starting the grand scrubbing of the interwebs… for “democracy and such”

I wonder how many generals Trump can stick in his cabinet before folks start talking openly about Pinochet, Suharto and Mubarak. Of course, Trump wont have to worry about that too much if Killary and the fake progressives can kill off all those “fake news” websites before that happens.

Anybody seeing a pattern developing here? Anybody?

Yeah, it will be an interesting couple of weeks, that’s for sure.


Meanwhile In Aleppo, Another Psyop “Hearts and Minds” Campaign Flees with their Friends from al-Qaeda

Thu, 12/08/2016 - 06:29

by Scott Creighton

While everyone in the alternative community is arguing over “pizzagatekeeping”, the White Helmets brand of al-Qaeda’s PR outreach division is quietly fleeing Syria in some green buses with their child beheading friends. Destination? Obama’s next destabilization campaign tour stop. Somalia? Turkey? Sudan? Iran? Who knows. Maybe Detroit. Maybe we should call their agents at Burson Marsteller and ask them.

Meanwhile, in the White Helmet Free Zone of liberated Old #Aleppo – thank you Syrian Arab Red Crescent. @SyriaCivilDef @TheSyriaCmpgn fakes

Of Course “Pizzagate” Was a Distraction/Disinfo Psyop from the Beginning

Thu, 12/08/2016 - 05:56

by Scott Creighton

Someone sent me a link to a Barry Soetoro video which explains one crucial aspect of the “pizzagate” distraction/disinfo campaign quite well and that is the roll played by Comet Pizza business owner James Alefantis. Everyone on my site here who disagrees with me on the real nature of “pizzagate” know full well just how well connected this Washington insider businessman is and yet they never seem to make the leap to the connection that means he could very well be in on it from the beginning.

Look at what has happened. Anonymous individuals at 4chan started this thing off at a time when other Washington insiders were being exposed for real via the Podesta leak scandal which had a real effect on the election and at embarrassed some D.C. Big Wigs including Clinton and Podesta and others. The allegations were titillating/salacious. They involved depravity and set the reader above the fray morally speaking. It was a version of the empowering “wont somebody think of the children?!?” theme I often expose in their other designed psyops (Malala, Bana, Bring Back Our Girls, Incubator Babies, etc.)

4chan does some good work but they have also been infiltrated by influence peddlers of the government and NGO variety for a long time now (especially after the Boston Bombing and all that information was shared back then)

Suddenly the focus in some of the independent media outlets was off the real discoveries in the Podesta email leaks and everyone was running around sharing the business owner’s Instagram photos taken out of context as if they were proof positive of the hidden nefarious purpose of his business. It was flimsy “evidence” at best… deliberately so at worst.

Then, when the time is right, they get a crisis actor to head over to the business, stage a little street improve scene with his “big bad gun” and we have a legitimate manufactured crisis, just like what the likes of Cass Sunstein have been wanting for years.


Toss in the appropriate overblown breathless responses from their Mockingbird’s in the MSM and poof…


Crisis, reaction, solution.

Now this well placed D.C. business owner has become the front-man for the campaign to end net neutrality and shutter the internet as we know it. Because Mr. Clean D.C. insider “victim” has been abused by the free and open internet and its’ troubling habit of sharing ideas and information freely in our society. And as you all know, that can’t be good. Right?

Here’s how they’ve cross-purposed this particular psyop.

  • shut down “fake news” sites and do so without the public seeing it as blatant, sweeping, Naziesque censorship
  • distract from the real revelations of the Podesta, DNC leaked emails (leaked, not hacked)
  • gun control (and by that I mean them being able to determine who has a second amendment right and who doesn’t)
  • end net anonymity by forcing everyone to register for access to the internet and post under their real names (which will silence dissent more than shutting down “fake news” websites)

Damn, that’s a pretty big plate for a little pizza shop psyop wouldn’t you say? Might even be more crippling than manufacturing the “Edward Snowden” psyop to get CISPA passed through congress. Notice how many companies are out there now (since Freedom Act and CISA privatized the collection of your personal data) shoveling up your private data and selling it to the highest bidder and the government? Did you have Google Home or any of those other WiFi listening/recording/broadcasting devices in your home before “Snowden”? How many car-tracking devices did you have plugged into your car? Your kid’s car? How many “home security” companies offered to put mics and cameras all over the INSIDE of your home for “your protection”? How many “free” apps tracked your every move, text or Tweet from your mobile device? How many devises did you wear on your wrist that tells your insurance company how lazy you are and tracks your every move so they can sell that info as well?

And you were worried about 12 guys from the NSA reading your emails if they got a warrant from a judge before all of this? Really?

Do you know how many major US companies wanted CISPA and how much they paid congress to get it made into law so they could profit from it? Do you know what fascism really is?

Manufactured crisis, reaction, solution. Over and over again and folks keep falling for it every time.

They do these things because they work. Because they provide them cover for domestic policy agendas that would ordinarily be shouted down by the general population. Now the outrage from the majority is focused on independent journalists instead of toward Podesta, Clinton and the crimes they and their people committed over the past couple of years. Not to mention the fact that real pedophilia in D.C. will be harder to uncover and expose in the future.

And all they needed was a well placed business owner to go along with it, some CIA assets on 4chan to kick it all off and a couple well placed “influence leaders” in the Mockingbird “alternative” media industry to help them peddle their poisoned pill of a story… and it was just that simple.

Here’s Soetoro’s video. It’s good work. Glad some folks out there see through this stuff as it happens. Because that is when it matters. Thanks to whoever sent me this link.


WHEN FAKE NEWS ATTACKS: “Pizzagate” Disinfo Used on Morning Joe (i.e. real “fake news”) to Call for Censorship

Wed, 12/07/2016 - 07:06

by Scott Creighton

Wont somebody think of the children hanging out at the pizza place being raided by the crisis actor and his EVIL gun!?!

Joe S. with his furrowed brow, flags waving just behind him to ensure his audience he’s an All American, calls for Google and Facebook to come forward and save us from the “fake news” that threatens our children in their favorite pizza joint. Unfortunately it will just mean that our 1st amendment rights have to give way because “pizzagate” has motivated a crisis actor to take the law into his own hands.

Community theater actor playing the role of “Hick Othello of the Sticks”

Of course…

Yes, the fake news, the REAL fake news, is attacking. They are attacking our constitutional rights. The right to bear arms and of course, the right to free speech.

Watch the Morning Joe oligarch-supporting pundit class each take a turn voicing their support for the end of the 1st amendment. Look at their eyes.

Look at their fucking eyes.

They know exactly what they are doing and they know exactly what it means yet the words, stilted and uncomfortable as they were delivered, still came out of their mouths.

But look at their eyes. Look at the glances each give the other as someone else speaks. They hate doing it, but they’re still doing it. Almost as if their careers and their membership to The Big Club depend on it.

The eyes tell the truth even as the fake news spews from their mouths.

This is what happens when fake news attacks. The REAL fake news.

I hope you guys appreciate your favorite independent journalism websites and go let them know how much you appreciate em. Leave them a little comment, a smiley face. Something. Cus, if the look on these complicit sellout’s faces are any indication, they wont be around for much longer.

Phony Pizzagate Disinfo Distraction Ends As You Might Expect: With a Crisis Actor and an Assault on the 1st and 2nd Amendments

Mon, 12/05/2016 - 06:53

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Here is the “fake news” site shutting down operation in it’s own words (from police report):

“S-1 (crisis actor Welsh) stated that he had an AR-15 laying on the …. inside the restaurant along with a .38 caliber handgun that he had sitting on a table. Sgt. Firehack (?) further asked S-1 what his motive was entering the establishment armed. S-1 stated that he had read online that the Comet restaurant was harboring child sex slaves and that he wanted to see for himself if they were there. S-1 stated he was armed to help rescue them. S-1 surrendered peacefully when he found no evidence that underage children were being harbored in the restaurant. S-1 was placed inside transport”

Ah, the “fake news” “conspiracy theorists” are setting off the armed unhinged from the fringes and they are quite literally taking aim at the innocent civilians. Hmm. Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah… Conspiracy Theories and Other Dangerous Ideas by Cass Sunstein. Seems a bit custom made now doesn’t it?

UPDATE: hmm. James Corbett (big on privatizing Dept. of Education by the way) reported on the “pizzagate” story as “the biggest pedophile scandal in the highest ranks of government

Edgar Welch reprising his role as “Sovereign Citizen Cain!” an art-fag’s interpretation of what a militia man must look like (notice the earplugs?)

(Notice how he keeps his finger off the trigger? That’s because the gun wrangler who they hired for the photo-shoot told him to do that. Wouldn’t want it to go off while he’s holding it with his skinny little arm.)

The obviously phony “pizzagate” disinformation distraction has ended with Edgar M. Welch, 28, of Salisbury, N.C. heading up to D.C. to hold his own “investigation” into the matter which consisted of him showing up on a slow business day and firing a round from his “assault rifle” into the air after he told everyone to leave the building… and getting arrested in the store.

In a statement, Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, condemned the people who had been spreading the bogus stories about child abuse.

“What happened today demonstrates that promoting false and reckless conspiracy theories comes with consequences,” he said. “I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today and stop promoting these falsehoods right away.”

Bradley Graham, co-owner of Politics and Prose, said the incident was a worrisome event during an uneasy time for the neighborhood. “This is one of the things we feared,” Mr. Graham said as the police surrounded his bookstore with rifles and weapons drawn. “That this could go from a social media attack to something much more dangerous and physical.” New York Times

Mr. Welch is a “crisis actor” whose daddy is a former cop and firearms instructor… and actor.

The entire “pizzagate” story was the dumbest fake “conspiracy theory” out there since “ray beams from space”. It centered on the idea that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta were ordering up babies to rape with their cheese pizza. I even saw a Tweet from Cynthia McKinney buying into that stupid shit.

“Look, they have freaky paintings on the wall! ooooooo they must be eviiiiilllll”

“Notice how many times pizza is mentioned in the emails? It must be code for raping babies!”

The dumbest thing I have ever heard. The story goes something like this:

“Uh. Hi. Yeah, this is John Podesta. A big powerful guy in D.C. Yeah, uh, I would like an extra large anchovy pizza with extra cheese… uh.. a 2 liter Diet Coke… uh.. and some garlic knots… and oh yeah, can I get a two-year-old raping baby with that please?… uh, a white one? Don’t have white? How about black? Okay, good. Do I get the Illuminati discount with that?”

Apparently after getting everyone to leave the building so they wouldn’t get hurt (all the pedophiles mind you) our crisis actor hero went in the back of the building looking for the storage bins where they keep the raping babies. I’m not making that up by the way.

And now we have an equally stupid psyop event at the pizza restaurant featuring a crisis actor who will claim he was brainwashed by “fake news” websites and a bevy of all the types of gun every gun-grabber wants too see off the streets.

Perfect timing, right?

This crap is so obvious. Just look at that Lee Harvey Oswald-styled photo up there. They needed a concrete example of the dangers posed by “fake news” and they figured they might as well cross purpose their publicity stunt with some more demonization of “rednecks with GUNS!”

This is just dumb. High school activist theater level dumb. Community theater written and directed level dumb. Outsourced, subcontracted psychological operations level dumb. Home made police department community service announcements dumb. This is just dumb. And CLEARLY obvious. Any fool will see it for what it is from a mile away with a coffee can on his head and after poking his eyes out with dumb.

But the MSM is running with it like it’s real. Go figure. The bar for being considered “too smart for your own good” is now at the point where if you tie your own shoes, you’re in deep trouble and you probably wont ever get a job in the media. Which is a pretty low bar in and of itself.

I’m sorry but aside from Ray Beams from Space, this is the dumbest thing I have heard of and now it’s over, all but for the constitutional rights grabbing campaigns, I have to just laugh.

In the future people wont sit back and ask “how did things get away from them so quickly?”

Instead they’ll ask “How the hell were people that fucking dumb?”

Here’s something to chew on… while we’re barely surviving (and in my case, that may not be for much longer), the brain-trusts who came up with this stupid psyop make about 2.5k a year and are sitting pretty patting each other on the back like they’re geniuses. You know why? Because they are folks who learn everything they know from the MSM. That’s why.

The thought of that reminds me of something.

Yeah. We’re in deep trouble.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

Is Despicable Jill Stein Trying to Drag Us Past the Safe Harbor Deadline to Save Killary’s Coronation? Looks that way, yeah

Sun, 12/04/2016 - 09:28

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: A guy formerly of Conde Nast and the Global Strategy Group thinks this is an encouraging conspiracy theory. The most encouraging of 2016. That’s something, huh? I must be onto something.

The Global Strategy Group is a PR, research and strategic communications firm which works primarily for the DNC and other fake-left Dems. They also claim as clients organizations like Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Condé Nast, General Electric, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Scholastic and Silverstein Properties.

Gee, I wonder how I popped up on his radar so quickly. It’s almost as if someone is scouring Twitter to try to stay ahead of the message on this recount thing. Now why would the DNC hire folks to do that I wonder.

CIAnonymous has put out a video in which they claim a major disruption in the force is going to take place in 9 days here in the States. They say Jill Stein’s recount effort isn’t actually about having the votes recounted or exposing the deeply problematic “black box voting” system we have here in the United States as much as it is about delaying the certification of the Electoral College votes of three states (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan) past the Dec. 13th deadline.

As their theory goes, if Stein’s effort, run by a slew of Democrats by the way, is successful in delaying the states’ confirmation of the vote tallies past that Dec. 13th deadline, in theory, they could then use that delay to throw a wrench into the official confirmation process resulting ultimately in the US House of Representatives holding a vote on the floor to decide who the next president of the United States would be from a pool of three possible candidates, the three who earned the most EC votes in the election. The office of Vice President would be decided the same way meaning there could in fact be an outcome that sees Hillary Clinton made president and Mike Pence her Vice President. The applicable law is the 12th Amendment to the Constitution.

That brings up an interesting problem in that only Trump and Clinton have any EC votes. Coming in third is everyone else. So theoretically, Stein and Gary Johnson would both be eligible for that “election” in the House. So would their respective VP nominees.

Here is the applicable deadline breakdown as per US law:

December 13, 2016 (“safe harbor” deadline)

States must make final decisions in any controversies over the appointment of their electors at least six days before the meeting of the Electors. This is so their electoral votes will be presumed valid when presented to Congress.

Decisions by states’ courts are conclusive, if decided under laws enacted before Election Day.

December 19, 2016

The Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six “Certificates of Vote,” which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment.

The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote. These are distributed immediately as follows:

  • one set to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) for the official count of the electoral votes in January;
  • two packages to the Secretary of State in the state where the electors met—one is an archival set that becomes part of the public record of the Secretary of State’s office and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes;
  • two packages to the Archivist—one is an archival set that becomes part of the permanent collection at the National Archives and Records Administration and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; and
  • one set to the presiding judge in the district where the Electors met—this is also a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.

December 28, 2016

Electoral votes (the Certificates of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the electors. States face no legal penalty for failure to comply.

If votes are lost or delayed, the Archivist may take extraordinary measures to retrieve duplicate originals.

There is contemporary precedent.

“On December 12 (2000), the Supreme Court ruled in a 7–2 vote that the Florida Supreme Court’s ruling requiring a statewide recount of ballots was unconstitutional, and in a 5–4 vote that the Florida recounts could not be completed before a December 12 “safe harbor” deadline, and should therefore cease and the previously certified total should hold.” Wiki on 2000 election

In our current situation, Justice Scalia is dead and gone and the republicans have yet to hold a vote on his replacement, setting up a potential 4-4 tie in the event of another Supreme Court challenge to the process.

That year the “safe harbor” deadline was Dec. 12th. This year it’s on the 13th. And since we are bound to hear a lot more about this particular law in the coming days, I thought it would be interesting to read a little bit of R.B. Ginsburg’s dissenting opinion from back in 2000.

“The December 12 ‘deadline’ for bringing Florida’s electoral votes into safe harbor lacks the significance the Court assigns it. Were that date to pass, Florida would still be entitled to deliver electoral votes Congress must count unless both Houses find that the votes ‘had not been… regularly given.’ The statute identifies other significant dates, specifying December 18 as ‘the date electors shall meet and give their votes’ and specifying ‘the fourth Wednesday in December’ — this year, December 27 — as the date on which Congress, if it has not received a State’s electoral votes, shall request the state secretary of state to send a certified return immediately. But none of these dates has ultimate significance in light of Congress’ detailed provisions for determining, on ‘the sixth day of January,’ the validity of electoral votes.” TIME

Dec. 13th is an arbitrary date which holds no real significance in terms of setting a limit on the certification of the votes in any state. It is of course, codified into law, but notice up there what it says about the penalties for the states if they miss those key dates: there is none.

It is possible that if these states are not capable of finishing Jill Stein’s recount process by Dec. 13th, someone from the Clinton camp will present a petition before the courts to have the results of those states tossed out since they cannot be “confirmed” while the recount is ongoing.

If the EC votes of those three states are out, then no candidate has a majority and Article 12 kicks in and it goes to the US House of Representatives for a state by state vote. The House is currently made up of 244 Republicans and 188 Democrats but that doesn’t mean much due to the fact that so much of the war-mongering Republican establishment and the Big Business donor class want Hillary in the Oval Office as opposed to Trump.

On Jan. 3rd the new class of 2017 takes office. Not much of a change there.

The CIAnonymous suggests they could vote for anyone they wanted to but I think Article 12 is quite clear on who is eligible. It might be interpreted as to include candidates who ran in the primary but even then the person gaining the next highest actual vote totals would be Bernie Sanders I believe (correct me if I am wrong) and I seriously doubt they would hand over the reigns of power to him.

In looking at what Jill Stein has done since first announcing her “recount” efforts, you will notice she is plugging ahead in spite of the fact that the Green Party wants no part of it and her former running mate wants no part of it. It is clear she has been influenced by the Democrats and Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff specifically and as she gains more attention now than she ever had, it’s bad attention. The kind that ensures no party or voter will ever trust her again.

One state after another is putting up road blocks in front of her recount effort to the point where a legitimate recount is completely out of the question as is the case in Wisconsin which ruled each county Election Commission could decided if they wanted to do an actual count of the ballots or simply recheck the flawed tallies from the electronic voting machines. At that point, a recount is pointless because the individual Election Commissions that rigged their elections in the first place will be deciding whether they should do a real recount and expose themselves and their crimes. So recounting Wisconsin is pointless… but Jill Stein pressed forward anyway. They are not expected to complete the recount by Dec. 13th

In Pennsylvania they ruled against a mandated state-wide recount because Stein presented no evidence of malfeasance. Now Stein has filed in federal court to force a recount in the state. That will take precious days to decide and in the end my guess is they will rule in her favor, but again, with no hope of completing the delayed recount on time to meet the “safe harbor” deadline. It should be noted that Pennsylvania uses electronic voting machines, not ballot counting systems, so there are no paper ballots to count by hand. In short, there is no reliable way to recount the votes in Pennsylvania. All you can do is recount the votes from the rigged machines. Also, in this state 3 voters from each voting divisions have to formerly file a complaint locally with their election boards in order to get a recount. So far Stein’s people have a total of 75 divisions meeting that criteria out of  1,600. Statistically, that is nothing in terms of support. So she can’t even get people on the ground to come out in support of her actions. This one should be over as well but Stein continues to push forward.

In Michigan Trump’s team has filed a lawsuit to block the recount but that promises only to slow the process, not halt it altogether. The Stein people are fighting it and in the end, the truth of the agenda is expressed in the suit itself

“In Michigan, Mr Trump’s team filed a complaint with the elections board to block a recount of all 4.8 million ballots cast in the state, which he won by 10,700 votes. A recount there could begin next week.”  BBC

“”If allowed to proceed, the statewide hand recount could cost Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars and would put Michigan voters at risk of being disenfranchised in the electoral college.” Michigan Attorney General

The three states in question represent 46 Electoral College votes: Pennsylvania has 20, Michigan has 16 and Wisconsin has 10. Donald Trump now has 306 votes as it stands and in order for the 12th Amendment rule to apply, all three states must withhold their EC votes. If only the two largest do so, Pennsylvania and Michigan, Trump still has the necessary 270 majority needed to confirm his election.

In short, in order to miss the “safe harbor” deadline, Jill Stein’s recount effort has to press forward in all three states regardless of what folks are saying about her and regardless of how pointless the recounts are in terms of exposing our flawed, rigged election system.

In fact, her efforts are now doing more harm to the election integrity movement than they are helping it.

And it’s fare to talk about this effort to throw the election into turmoil via the dismissal of Electoral College voters because on several other fronts, the Clinton campaign is doing the same thing.

There is a petition on calling for EC voters to cast their votes for Hillary as opposed to how the voters in their districts want them to vote. They say the “real election” is on Dec. 19th and that voters can vote however they want.

Donald Trump has not been elected president. The real election takes place December 19, when the 538 Electors cast their ballots – for anyone they want.

We are calling on “Conscientious Electors” to protect the Constitution from Donald Trump, and to support the national popular vote winner.

Ironic isn’t it? A week ago all the Hillary supporters were talking about how the Electoral College was set up to keep slave owners in power and suggesting that’s why Donald Trump actually won and now those same folks are calling on the corruptible EC system to vote against the will of the people and install Hillary Clinton (and her Haitian slave owning husband) as president. That, ladies and gentlemen is how the slave holders of the old days intended the EC to keep them in power.

In Michigan EC voters are receiving death threats from folks telling them there will be consequences if they cast their vote in line with the way the voters decided.

On the day after the election, several “progressive” websites including Politico, published the names of all the EC voters from each state. That certainly made it easier to pressure them, now didn’t it?

Seems to me someone is setting up a rather unsettling development in this year’s election. Stein’s seriously flawed recount effort is actually recounting nothing of consequence and seems to only be serving to bog down the process long enough to run headfirst into the “safe harbor” deadline of Dec. 13th. An arbitrary yet legally binding date to certify election totals in each state.

The fact that she picked these three particular states who’s EC vote totals will be JUST ENOUGH to force an “election” in the House of Representatives is also extremely suspect in my opinion.

And the fact that she continues with this deeply flawed effort of hers in spite of developments in each state which will absolutely prevent a real recount leaves me to believe she has been hired by the Clinton machine to toss this election into complete chaos in order to install Hillary Clinton (and possibly Mike Pence) in the White House.

Jill Stein should be ashamed of herself. She’s:

  1. destroying the real election integrity movement
  2. positioning the country for a major civil disruption
  3. making this effort in hopes that the election results are ultimately tossed because Americans “voted the wrong way’
  4. fighting like hell to install the SINGLE MOST CORRUPT WAR-MONGERING CANDIDATE WE HAVE EVER SEEN in the Oval Office.

Seems to me CIAnonymous has this one figured out. Also seems to me that Jill Stein is a despicable human being.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

So What is This ‘Veterans for Standing Rock’ Thing All About?

Sat, 12/03/2016 - 10:54

by Scott Creighton

“Most civilians who’ve never served in a uniform are gutless worms who’ve never been in a fight in their life,” Wes Clark Jr. Leader of Veterans for Standing Rock “If you are 20 years old you’re not going to live out the rest of your life and die of natural causes (because of Global Warming™) Wes Clark, Jr. Sept. 2016

A bunch of vets, something like 2,000 or so, are traveling to Standing Rock to put themselves between the protesters up there in North Dakota and the riot-gear outfitted police who are actively defending Big Business interests. They are not taking weapons and plan to be there for a whopping 4 days (Dec. 4th – Dec. 7th)

The “leaders” of this excursion say they are doing it to see if the cops will beat on vets like they would beat on Native American water protectors and random concerned citizens who are there supporting the protest.

This “test” they say will show the true nature of the police action up there.

Think about that for a second: a large group of American military personnel heading somewhere to help the indigenous people oppose a pipeline rather than install one. That’s gotta be a first.

So what is this all about? Are they going to stand there for 4 days yelling back and forth at cops and then pack up and leave on Thursday allowing the thugs to go right back to what they’ve been doing? Are some of them agent provocateurs looking to kick-off some sort of national action against vets? Is it just shameless opportunism set up by a couple guys looking for some activism street-cred? Do they honestly expect the cops to suddenly bow down to their veterans cloak of superiority super powers and run away leaving the pipeline vulnerable to the ravages of the masses?

I don’t know. Let’s see what we can find out.

The Vets have raised a million bucks for this trip. They say it’s going to help provide equipment and other sundry stuffs for this large group.

Jimmy Dore, the comedian turned “activist” (who I hate now because he recently said of the Jill Stein recount effort that Donald Trump won “because of gerrymandering and election rigging”) had one of the founders of this event on his show yesterday. Marine and former Baltimore Sargent Michael A Wood Jr. sat down with Jimmy and talked about this project. He comes across like a slick, well-trained professional protester spouting off all the right catch-phrases. He says in the end they are going “in a support mission” and that they will do whatever the tribal leaders want them to do. But then he gets all excited saying his “heart is burning to go across that bridge and shut it down” meaning escalating a direct confrontation with the police presence which the Native Americans at the location have been decidedly against since day one.

Michael Wood was a Baltimore cop for 8 years and left in 2014. He got together with professional agitator and Black Lives Matter provocateur DeRay Mckesson a couple years ago.

“Wood said he has held panel discussions after screenings of Black Lives Matter documentaries, participated in protests and connected with other protesters in Baltimore including Campaign Zero activist and Baltimore mayoral candidate DeRay McKesson.” DNA Info

Wood made a name for himself in the Black Lives Matter destabilization campaign by sending out some Tweets in early 2015 about some of the things he supposedly witnessed at a cop when he was on the force. Remember, he left the force in 2014. None of his allegations were accompanied by any names or dates of the events and he has never provided any proof of them since he made them. He also never reported any of the events while serving.

His accusations were tepid at best in terms of exposing police misconduct and inciting at worst in terms of angering black people. Slapping some black woman, profiling young black males, crapping on someone’s bed after a raid, kicking a handcuffed suspect in the face while he was down… unnerving stuff but certainly not anything on the level of Frank Serpico. And we are talking Baltimore where more than half the cops are probably on the take and drop guns are standard police issue equipment. And all he came up with to earn his “street-cred” was one guy slapping a woman in the face and someone shitting on a drug dealer’s mattress? Really?

Wood then tried to capitalize on his notoriety and his “truth teller” street-cred by running for the top cop job in Chicago this past February. He later said they picked “a black guy”

Wood, who describes himself as a “change agent” on his Twitter feed, also credits himself as a “creator/advocate” of civilian led policing. He has a website which dates all the way back to April 2015. Wow. He’s been at this almost two whole years and he ends up on national television, Jimmy Dore and Joe Rogan? That’s pretty good. I wonder how he does that with no job.

Here is Wood in his second interview with limited hangout specialist and neoliberal libertarian Joe Rogan. They are talking about what to do after the Pulse nightclub psyop only they don’t call it a psyop… to them it’s real and Wood says the only way to prevent more of them in the future… is gun control.

Michael Wood Jr. is a complete and total gun-grabber advocate who pushes obvious psyop events to promote that agenda. And he’s Jimmy Dore’s hero to go up to North Dakota and face-off against the cops? And he says he wants to charge across the bridge and physically confront the police?

That’s interesting.

In his interview with Dore, Michael Wood Jr. says he was contacted by Wes Clark Jr. and asked to take part in this event. You might recall from the top of this post, Wes Clark Jr. said most people who didn’t serve in the glorious military are “gutless worms”

“This country is repressing our people. If we’re going to be heroes, if we’re really going to be those veterans that this country praises, well, then we need to do the things that we actually said we’re going to do when we took the oath to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic.” Wes Clark Jr.

He’s going up there to be “heroes” … for four days. The “gutless worms” he and his band of vets will be “saving” have been there for months and they’ve been abused, frozen, sound-cannoned and shot with rubber bullets. You see those people are activists and Native Americans… they don’t carry with them the cloak of invincibility vet-superpower Clark and his fellow bring with them.

Wes’ daddy is retired general Wesley Clark Sr. who, by the way…

Some critics, such as left-wing CounterPunch and right-wing, have made allegations that Clark was, to some degree, involved in the Waco siege, where David Koresh and 74 Branch Davidian followers were killed during the FBI’s final raid on the group’s compound.[42] Some also suggest that, given the sensitive nature of the materials lent for the operation, Clark had some knowledge of and perhaps a hand in planning the Waco siege.[43]

Clark commanded Operation Allied Force in the Kosovo War during his term as the Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO from 1997 to 2000.

One of Clark’s most debated decisions during his SACEUR command was his attempted operation to attack Russian troops at Pristina International Airport, immediately after the end of the Kosovo War in June 1999.

So Wes’ daddy is a warmonger, a war-criminal and quite possibly one of the planners of the Waco siege which killed 40-something children and saw the United States put military snipers on the ground shooting civilians.

That’s this hero’s daddy. This hero who says you’re a gutless worm if you didn’t serve in the military.

Wes is also a big advocate for the Global Warming™ psyop. He said on a Young Turks episode with Jimmy Dore that if you’re 20 years old right now, Global Warming is going to kill you and that is why Hillary is going to lose the election (because millennials care about Global Warming and she doesn’t)

They guy comes across like a weasel. He literally talks like Frank Burns from M.A.S.H.

He supports Hillary’s campaign at that point saying that the post-Trump revolution wont happen because “when people with armbands come to your house and beat your children and tell you to keep quiet, generally people do because they are cowards”.. he cites his own experience in countries where his dad was stationed as examples. He doesn’t mention the fact that his dad or his co-workers were the ones sending out the guys with the armbands.

“If we go 4 more years pumping shit into the environment there is nothing we can do to save ourselves and our children from the apocalypse.” Wesley Clark Jr.

The guy is involved in the Climate Mobilization movement and his argument is that they could “move” Clinton to nationalize their Global Warming boogeyman agenda easier than they could Trump. He says at least she respects the rule of law. Never once did he mention how much she pushed fracking onto countries across the globe while serving as Sec. of State.

He went on a rant about his “dark skinned” brother in law and how he was going to be “pulled out of his car” by Trump vigilantes in a couple months.. “and shot in the fucking head. It matters, dude!” is what he said.

Wes Clark Jr. is an unhinged race-baiting servant of the establishment who apparently really hates leftists and folks who didn’t serve in the military like he and his daddy did. When screeching about mass murdering tyrants and dictators he mentions Hitler, Stalin and Mao.. the typical list pre-approved by all right-wing ideologues. Not a word about the likes of Saleh, Pinochet, Papa Doc or Mubarak… our personal favorite dictators because they served our interests.

Wes Clark Jr. has no business going to Standing Rock. His big issue, his main issue, is making kids terrified of the man-made Global Warming mythology. His temperament is absolutely not suited for a conflict situation like the one up in North Dakota and you can tell that from that video interview I link you to above. He’s unhinged and starts flailing around and cursing when someone disagrees with his position. He’s aggressively confrontational and given to flights of fancy that feeds his underlying rage.

If there is someone you don’t want at a situation like Standing Rock, it’s Wes Clark Jr.

I don’t know what to make of all of this. More likely it’s a couple assholes trying to milk some credibility points from this situation and get themselves on a couple alternative talk shows and maybe a few donations at the same time.

Then again, it could be they have a more nefarious agenda in mind. We’ll have to see how it turns out. But one thing is for sure, a guy who pushes gun-grabbing agendas while talking like a snake and a guy who goes off screeching about “dark skinned” people being shot “in the fucking head” because… Trump… and tries to terrify little children with the Global Warming monster hiding under their beds are not exactly the kinds of men I would follow to Standing Rock.

Jimmy Dore should try to keep better company. The Native Americans and protesters at Standing Rock should keep a real close eye on these two, that’s for damn sure.

p.s. Let’s think about this for a minute. What possible reason could there be for them to go to Standing Rock for four days? Do they think Wall Street and the banks financing the pipeline are going to cave because some glorious vets show up and hang out for four days?

Is that really the idea here?

Is that what they are trying to sell to folks as their “big plan”? The glorious vets show up and justice is done?

Really? Are they that stupid or self-absorbed or do  they think we’re that stupid?

The only effective means of protest in this situation is peaceful ongoing resistance. Not a bunch of half-cocked vets showing up and saying they’re only staying four days. The interests that own this pipeline worry about it continuing endlessly, preventing them from completion and pushing back their profit margins. Four days to them means nothing.

Unless of course this whole thing is designed to escalate the situation so it can’t go on endlessly like the Native Americans and the protesters intend. In that case, it might only take four days. It might just take one if some agent provocateur in this group just happens to whip out a weapon and start shooting at cops. That would fix all kinds of stuff right? The protest could be brought to an end and the gun-grabbing Michael Wood backs would become an issue again.

Four days is long enough for that but nothing else. So you have to wonder…

Please help keep AE up and running if you can. Thank you all so much

U.S. Journalists and Professors Appearing on RT America Get Blacklisted

Sat, 12/03/2016 - 07:48

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall Street on Parade

Some independent journalists and university professors in the United States who have appeared on RT television to criticize either runaway corruption on Wall Street or in Washington, have landed on two newly created blacklists. RT is a Russian state-financed news network formerly known as Russia Today. Its English-language RT America unit broadcasts from Washington, D.C.

A shadowy group called PropOrNot, that has not disclosed either its funders or its principals, has created a blacklist of 200 independent media web sites that it is calling tools of Russia. On the list are some of the most popular and widely read alternative media outlets like Naked Capitalism, Truthout and Truthdig, which regularly carry articles by some of the most knowledgeable and informed voices in America. Another popular site, CounterPunch, was originally on the list but has now been removed following what PropOrNot calls a “constructive conversation.” Reporter Craig Timberg of the Washington Post has come under withering criticism for amplifying the McCarthyite blacklist in a Thanksgiving Day article.

Equally disturbing, 200 university and college professors have been placed on a new Professor Watchlist being operated by Turning Point USA, a right-wing nonprofit run by 23-year old Charlie Kirk who spoke this year at the Republican National Convention. Kirk has raised well over $1 million from conservatives to spread the “free markets/small government” mantra at high school and university campuses (never mind that Wall Street’s “free markets” are just as corrupt today as they were heading into the 2008 epic financial crash)…

Washington Post Reporter Spreads Blacklist of Independent Journalist Sites

Sat, 12/03/2016 - 07:43

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens from Wall Street on Parade

Craig Timberg, a Washington Post reporter with an interesting history (which we’ll get to shortly), doubled down last night with a new article suggesting that Congressional legislation may be coming to further crack down on independent journalists not properly adhering to the dogma of Washington. Timberg has become the deserving piñata of writers like Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone, Ben Norton and Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, Max Blumenthal of AlterNet, Robert Parry at Common Dreams and numerous other writers at alternative media.

Timberg and the Washington Post, which is owned by the billionaire CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, are being stridently called out as McCarthyites for an article published on Thanksgiving Day that cited unnamed “experts” at a shadowy group called PropOrNot to smear 200 alternative media sites as tools of Russia. The blacklist included some of the most informed and courageous voices on the Internet like Naked Capitalism, Truthout, CounterPunch, and Truthdig, where the brilliant Chris Hedges, part of a New York Times team that won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002, regularly asks the uncomfortable questions — like this one: “When we look back on this sad, pathetic period in American history we will ask the questions all who have slid into despotism ask. Why were we asleep? How did we allow this to happen? Why didn’t we see it coming? Why didn’t we resist?”

Theories abound as to why Timberg would write such a shoddily sourced article and smear some of the best writing and thinking on the Internet. One line of thought is that corporate media is struggling to survive financially and needs to take out its competition. Others see something far more nefarious…

I’m Done

Fri, 12/02/2016 - 20:25

by Scott Creighton

Today I was denied assistance from Medicaid. Homeless people get Medicaid. Liars get Medicaid. Illegal immigrants get Medicaid. But I don’t get Medicaid.

I was denied disability months ago not on the basis that I wasn’t sick, the judge couldn’t justify that… he simply said if I didn’t take my medication, maybe somewhere in the country I might find a job if I could afford to get there … if they would hire me being as sick as I am… and if I didn’t my medicine.

And now after three months of not being able to afford my medicine, my local authorities decided I don’t quality for Medicare.

So I no longer get my PT/INR checked and I no longer have even the outdated prescription dosage of Coumadin that I used to take, 11mg a day.

Now I have nothing and wait for the inevitable.

That’s OK. This is the new Ayn Rand America. Like the old Reagan America and the old ’39 Germany, I get it. I understand. You guys need your Social Security to be around when you are allowed to retire so folks like me got to get out of the way.

I get it.

You want to know why Hillary expected to win? Because you guys aren’t leftists anymore. Because you guys are fucking Reagan Republicans. And you don’t give a shit about your fellow man.

Fuck this country. You deserve what you are going to get. You don’t have the balls to stand up. You’re faggots, every last one of you and I pity myself for ever thinking I was doing anything other than masterbating when I was spending all these countless hours trying to help change the course of this country. Dancing around screeching about your benevolent billionaire and getting on your knees sucking up to the glorious generals… you’re despicable. You deserve slavery.

Go ahead, kill off your disabled. Kill off your unemployed. Kill off your undesirables. But remember… you’re next you fucking cowards and it’s only a matter of fucking time.

You want me to die? You want me and folks like me to get out the way so you might be able to save a few nickles for your own SS retirement? Fine. But you ain’t getting it. They are taking it from you just like they took my disability insurance from me. And that’s what you desperate bootlickers don’t understand.

You want me to die? To get out of the way for your new Randian Utopia? Fine. I’m glad to accommodate you because I don’t want to hear your pathetic whining once you finally figure out what the fuck is going on around you.

You know why you don’t have truth tellers out there doing their best to keep you informed? Because you don’t deserve it. That’s why.

So today I find out I get to die. No one will hire me because I’m sick and I can’t get help because I’m not sick. Ok. Good. I would rather go out like this, like a fucking broken man than like a fucking sycophantic slave like you will. Go watch a Trump show. Go watch a Hillary show. I’ll sit back on street corner somewhere and watch you all turn into slaves and laugh. It’s what you deserve.

The country and community I loved and stuck my neck out for turns their back on me… the people I tried to help by sharing the truth that I came to understand rejects me and spits in my face… alright. I can live with with that. I did my best and lost no sleep trying to help. Now go cower in the face of your new fascist masters. Like snitch slaves caught trying to escape on the underground railroad, no one expects you to have any balls.

As you wish I will die.. but I’m not dying a slave. I never was a slave I never will be a slave and that’s what makes us different.
