Holocaust of lies: US Mainstream media

They’ve done it again.

The mainstream US media has once again mistranslated an Iranian president’s words.

Last time, they were lying to make the former President of Iran sound anti-West and anti-Israel. Now they are lying to make the new President of Iran sound pro-West and pro-Israel.

I suppose that is an improvement. Lying for peace is at least marginally better than lying for war.

But for those who care about truth, the Western mainstream media’s non-stop lies are nothing short of an ongoing holocaust.

Let’s take a closer look at the latest example of Western media duplicity.

CNN mistranslated President Rouhani’s recent interview to make it sound like Rouhani “condemned the Holocaust.”

In fact, both former President Ahmadinejad and current President Rouhani share a common outlook on Israel and the Nazi holocaust – an outlook that is also shared by the vast majority of the people of the Middle East, perhaps even the whole non-European world.

First and most importantly, they agree that whatever the Germans did to the Jews during World War II does not excuse the Zionist theft of even one acre of Palestinian land – much less the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the creation and maintenance of an apartheid “Jewish state.”
Second, they believe that the use of the Nazi holocaust story to create a new holocaust in Palestine is an ongoing crime against humanity.
Third, they believe that revisionist historians who argue that certain aspects of the Nazi crimes against Jews have been exaggerated deserve a fair hearing – and that the West’s persecution of these historians, by imprisoning them and/or destroying their reputations and livelihoods, makes a mockery of Western pretensions to support human rights, free speech, and free inquiry.

But the Western media is dominated by Zionists, as former New York Times journalist Phillip Weiss so beautifully explained in his essay: “Do Jews Dominate in American Media? And So What If We Do?” And to most of the pro-Zionist ethnic Jews who dominate the Western media, it is an article of religious faith that the sacred Holocaust somehow justifies the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel. These people are actually devotees of a new religious cult that has been termed “Holocaustianity.”

Israeli professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz first developed the idea that the Holocaust is a new religion. His analysis has been taken up by Israeli-born British philosopher Gilad Atzmon.

The Western media elite therefore reacts to all discussion of “the Holocaust” in the same way that a medieval inquisitor might react to discussion of “the Trinity.” The whole discussion gets reduced to: “Are you a believer or a heretic?”

The mainstream media lied by condemning former President Ahmadinejad as a Holocaust-denying heretic. Now it is lying again by falsely claiming that current President Rouhani is a Holocaust-worshipping true believer like themselves.

The truth is that both presidents view World War II as history, not sacred mythology. And neither accepts the inevitability of an apartheid “Jewish state” in Palestine.

The truth is that outside of Europe and the US, hardly anyone “believes in” the Holocaust the way Americans and Europeans do. For those not under the influence of the Holocaustianity-dominated Western mainstream media and academia, the Germans’ World War II-era crimes against Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, dissidents, and others are no more sacred than dozens or even hundreds of other examples of man’s inhumanity to man.

The American slave-trade holocaust, according to various estimates, killed tens of millions, as did the Native American holocaust. Even if the sacred “six million” number of Jews killed by the Nazis is correct, both the Native American holocaust and the African slave trade holocaust were vastly larger in scope. Yet in the US, where these holocausts of tens of millions happened, “Holocaust museums” serve as sacred temples that enshrine the holy story of “six million Jews” while downplaying the vastly larger holocausts perpetrated by the ancestors of the museum visitors themselves.

Navy Yard shooting: psyop, loose ends, media parrots

20130918-085216.jpg

By John Rappoport

http://www.nomorefakenews.com/

After covering a number of mass shootings and bombings over the last 20 years, I question the official explanation when a new one occurs. Automatically. Always. Every single time.

They lie. They obfuscate. They parrot. They don’t investigate beyond a comfortable point. They leave loose ends, which are often far more important than the supposed central facts.

And there is always a psyop after the event. It goes like this: “tragedy,” “unspeakable,” “will bring to justice,” “our thoughts and prayers are with,” “this didn’t happen in a war, it happened here,” “vigil for victims,” “grieving,” “closure,” “nation mourns the loss.”

Why is this a psyop? Because the government officials and mainstream media reporters don’t feel what they claim to be feeling. Their “positions as leaders” feel something, which is the same thing as saying it’s an act.

Beyond that, the purpose of the psyop is to divert attention from the fact that law-enforcement officials are bending the investigation, abandoning significant leads, and taking the short path to a “satisfactory” wrap-up.

To boil down the psyop: “it was tragic, and now it’s solved.” One, two. Open wound, closed wound. That’s the government/media formula.

In my previous article, I mentioned the psychiatric drug connection as a distinct possibility that haunts every one of these crimes. Rarely will reporters bother to look into this. It’s dicey for them. Exposing pharmaceutical companies and their horrendously toxic drugs is bad for business.

Imagine this front-page NY Times headline: “Four leading physicians state that, in all likelihood, the shooter was on one of the SSRI antidepressants, which can and do push people over into violence, including murder.”

Sub-head: “The doctors vow to press the authorities until they get to the bottom of the psychiatric-homicide connection.”

Sure. That’s going to happen when a rooster flies a spaceship to the Orion Belt.

If the purported shooter at the Navy Yard, Aaron Alexis (where is/are the other shooters?), was suffering from PTSD, as his family apparently claims, was he seeing a psychiatrist? What was the diagnosis? What drugs were prescribed? What effects do these drugs have?

Perfectly reasonable and legit questions.

Then we have the drills. In a number of these shootings/bombings, official drills that cover the same kind of event that eventually happens were held at the crime scene. Normal? Or op rehearsals? Desensitization of personnel to the real thing?

It turns out that Navy Citadel Shield security drills were held nationwide, at naval facilities, in February/March of both 2012 and 2013. From dcmilitary.com, Feb. 28, 2013: “…various training exercises with an emphasis on realism to train personnel. Scenarios included active shooters, mass casualty drills, bomb threats, surveillance, and false credential exercises.”

From USA Today, 9/16: Dave Sarr, an environmental engineer, was walking down a nearby street when he saw people running from the Navy Yard. Sarr had seen an evacuation drill a few days earlier at the Navy Yard. “At first I thought it was another drill,” Sarr said. “Then I saw an officer with his weapon drawn.”

20130918-085021.jpg

The same USA article cites a federal law-enforcement source (off the record) who states that Aaron Alexis, the accused shooter, cleared a Navy Yard security checkpoint in his car. After parking in the lot, he got into an argument and opened fire on one or two people. He then entered the building where he went on a killing spree.

So did Alexis shoot his way past security guards at the building’s separate checkpoint? Why weren’t the guards waiting for him just outside the building with their weapons drawn, after he, Alexis, had already shot people in the parking lot?

And then, of course, we have the many reports of one or two additional shooters at the Navy Yard. Where is he/they? Authorities now state one of these suspects has been cleared.

In Columbine, Aurora, Sandy Hook, there were reports of “extra” shooters. They faded out in the repetitive media reports of horror, shock, and grief, never to be mentioned again.

Former Bush and Clinton Administration Insider – Nobody is Asking the Basic Question

In this MSNBC roundtable discussion, Hillary Mann Leverett, a veteran of both the Bush and Clinton administrations, took on three liberal warmongers and the moderator questioning the consequences of helping Al Qaeda rebels if they conducted the attack on civilians and told them “the rest of the world does not believe what we’re saying for good reason. We made it up last time”.

An expert on the Middle East and serving in high positions in both the George W. Bush White House and the Bill Clinton State Department, she pushed back against the “herd mentality” of the mainstream media and the MSNBC panel.

Mann Leverett said, “It is strikingly similar to the lead up to the war in Iraq . I was in the Bush administration in the Bush White House dealing also with Congressional Democrats and with members of the media, with the New York Times, with NBC. The herd mentality that took over to buy into the Bush administration’s narrative that Saddam Hussein had to have chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction and was determined to use them against us was something unquestioned. I remember going with a key member of the Bush national security team to see President Clinton and he putting his arm around her, telling her not only was the intel right, but she was doing the right thing morally. It was not only a mistake, it was based on manufactured evidence.”

John Kerry hasn’t ruled out the possibility that the sarin gas attack was the work of Al Qaeda rebels. He simply doesn’t care who used it. He has asserted that the presence of sarin gas (if that was actually what was used) is sufficient reason to attack Assad. But what if it was the rebels that carried out the attack as a former correspondent for AP & BBC, Dale Gavlak reported and as a Belgian teacher and former rebel hostage, Pierre Piccinin da Prata, stated.

Obama denies giving proof on Syria chemical: AP

image

The US government insists it has the intelligence to prove Syrian government launched teh chemical attack, but the public has yet to see a single piece of concrete evidence produced by US intelligence .

The US administration has denied a request by the Associated Press to provide at least one concrete evidence for the public showing the alleged chemical attack in Syria on August 21 was linked to the Syrian government.

The Associated Press ran a skeptical piece Sunday about the Obama administration’s public case for military intervention in Syria in response to a reported Aug. 21 chemical attack.

The AP’s Zeina Karam and Kimberly Dozier wrote that “the US government insists it has the intelligence to prove it, but the public has yet to see a single piece of concrete evidence produced by US intelligence — no satellite imagery, no transcripts of Syrian military communications — connecting the government of President Bashar Assad to the alleged chemical weapons attack last month that killed hundreds of people.”

The Obama administration has released videos to make its case, but the AP noted that its requests for additional evidence the government claims to possess have been denied.

The Obama administration, searching for support from a divided Congress and skeptical world leaders, says its own assessment is based mainly on satellite and signals intelligence, but multiple requests to view that satellite imagery have been denied, AP wrote in an article.

Though the administration produced copious amounts of satellite imagery earlier in the war to show the results of the Syrian regime’s military operations but it has rejected to provide such imagery on the alleged chemical attack.

“The AP has been especially skeptical of the Obama administration’s claims, a reflection of how the media’s failure in the run-up to the Iraq War still lingers,” the article said.

Last week, AP investigative editor Ted Bridis urged reporters and editors to “dive deep into questions about quantifying and understanding the US government’s justification for military intervention in Syria,” according to a memo obtained by The Huffington Post.

A dozen former US military and intelligence officials told Obama that they are picking up information that proves Syrian government was not responsible for the August 21 attack.

They warned US president that the CIA was providing false data on the matter and said according to their sources, the anti-Syria miltiants carried out the attack.

Obama remains trying to gather international support for its controversial plans to bomb Syria, and his rush to dispatch warships toward the Arab country was forced to stop due worldwide calls not to attack the already war-torn country.

Syria has been gripped with a deadly insurgency since 2011 when pro-reform protests turned to an all-out war by infiltration of militants and terrorist groups from across the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.

Syrian “gas rockets” appear homemade and incapable of flying 5-10 miles to target

image

Photos of devices allegedly used to carry Sarin gas show they appear to be homemade and are clearly incapable of accurately reaching targets 5-10 miles away. That is crucially important because the State Department report asserts that the gas barrage was launched from gov’t controlled territory. But the map (below) that accompanied that report shows that several of the targets were miles away from the area in pink shown to be under the control of government forces.

These rockets have only the crudest stabilizers, no guidance systems, and would be highly inaccurate at any significant distance, which is why they are unlikely to have been the weapon used in the attack of 8/21, if the US target map is accurate along with the statement that they were launched from government-held territory.

Here’s the State Dept. map of the 12 alleged targets in the North Damascus suburbs. Note the distances of some of the targeted neighborhoods from government-held territory (in pink):

image

Something is clearly wrong either with the State Department report or accounts that say that these types of rockets were used to deliver the Sarin gas that night.

NOTE: I am the OP. I am relying on this information contained in the State Dept. report:

http://blogs.wsj.com/…

The Attack:

Multiple streams of intelligence indicate that the regime executed a rocket and artillery attack against the Damascus suburbs in the early hours of August 21. Satellite detections corroborate that attacks from a regime-controlled area struck neighborhoods where the chemical attacks reportedly occurred – including Kafr Batna, Jawbar, ‘Ayn Tarma, Darayya, and Mu’addamiyah. This includes the detection of rocket launches from regime controlled territory early in the morning, approximately 90 minutes before the first report of a chemical attack appeared in social media. The lack of flight activity or missile launches also leads us to conclude that the regime used rockets in the attack.
According to a Foreign Policy article:http://killerapps.foreignpolicy.com/…

(T)hese rockets have now became a cornerstone of the West’s case that the Syrian military was behind the nerve gas massacre of more than a thousands people in the Damascus suburbs last week. U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice tweeted earlier in the week that only the Assad regime “has capacity to launch CW with rockets.”
An American intelligence official told Foreign Policy on Tuesday that the rockets found at the scene of the attack on the East Ghouta region were a strong indicator that the strike involved chemical weapons. The rockets were largely intact — rather than completely destroyed, as they would be if they been carrying high-explosive warheads.

An initial report by the Guardian on 8/22 claimed that witnesses had identified two launch sites: the Al-Mazzah military airfield south of the city and a military museum in an area of central Damascus that was identified as being “government controlled.”  http://www.theguardian.com/…

There’s a couple problems with that:

1) the airfield is at least 15 miles from the easternmost target of Duma and
2) the location of the military museum is shown on the State Department map as not within “regime-controlled” territory; furthermore, that second location is at least six miles from Duma and the other eastern and southeastern target areas. [The museum is located where the second "s" in "Damascus" appears on the State Dept. map]  

The observed range of this type of rocket is about 2 miles, as shown in the sole existing video of one being fired and impacting at the western edge of the city: see, http://brown-moses.blogspot.ca/
There has been some conjecture that these devices are shot from the same launch tube as the Iranian-made Falaq-2, a modern artillery rocket with an advertised range of just over 10kms (6 miles).  The larger of the two versions of the Syrian rockets appears to have roughly the same outside diameter as the Falaq, about 300mm.  However, they are very different in design and performance.  It is highly implausible that these devices have anywhere close to the same range as the Falaq-2, as their shape is highly unaerodynamic and they lack the spin-stabilized propulsion system of the much more sophisticated Falaq-2 rocket.  Here is the Falaq-2:

Why is range, accuracy and sophistication of the rockets and delivery devices important? Sarin is not very effective over a large area unless the liquid is delivered in an aerosol form at just above ground level.* With crude rockets and warheads, that means that large numbers (many hundreds) of such weapons would have had to have been used in massed barrages to produce the level of mortality claimed. Because they are inaccurate beyond a short range, and cannot be aimed for mass barrages at long distance, these rockets may not have been effective for use in the way described in the report. We have not yet seen any evidence produced by the US government that these weapons are even capable of being used at relatively long distances as the State Department claims.

Al Jazeera’s American debut: Hyping a dubious chem-war attack in Syria

20130827-085353.jpg

By Wayne MADSEN, Opinion Maker

Just as Americans were led astray by the cable news media about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction prior to the disastrous U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, once again, viewers of cable news channels are being subjected to another information warfare campaign. This time it is an alleged Syrian government chemical attack on “thousands” of civilians in the Ghouta region outside of Damascus.

Syrian rebel sources, trained in the art of disinformation by CIA, MI-6, and Mossad advisers, claim between 1000 and 1300 Syrian civilians were killed in a chemical weapons attack. However, the dubious reports are not merely imprecise of numbers of civilians killed but are even inconsistent in what type of chemical weapon was used. Some reports claim it was mustard gas and others say it was nerve gas.
The Syrian attack was said to have occurred as UN chemical weapons inspectors arrived in Syria, certainly an unwise time for President Bashar al Assad’s forces to use chemical weapons on civilians.

What proof do the rebels provide of the attack? Suspiciously, they only offer up video footage taken by the rebels themselves and some statements by rebel-supporting “eyewitnesses.”

The timing of the report of the attack and the video footage coincided with Al Jazeera America’s (AJAM) debut on four U.S. cable services — Verizon Fios, Direct TV, Comcast, and Dish Network — previously denied to the Qatar-based news network. In fact, AJAM’s first news reports for its American audience featured the scenes of dead Syrian civilians, including a number of children, provided, of course, by the very same rebels supported militarily and financially by Qatar’s Muslim Brotherhood-supporting government.

UNPLUGGED: THE OBAMA ILLUSION

20130702-083649.jpg

By Zaakir Ahmed Mayet, PressTV

Barak Obama entered office in 2009 on the shoulders of the masses in the aftermath of an era of war ushered in by G.W. Bush.

The slogans of ‘Yes, We Can’ carried with it not only support but hope that the world will witness a change in US foreign policy which had turned so many against it. Promises of closing the notorious torture facility of Guantanamo Bay that held prisoners as young as 13 and some as old as 98.

A facility that revealed the most despicable face of society that turned a blind eye to Bush’s torture, kidnapping and even murder of men and boys; which we now know a majority of whom to be innocent. Promises of extending a hand to the Muslim world that was ripped apart by two wars – Iraq and Afghanistan. Promises of democracy and transparency.

We were all deceived and many remain deceived. During the first year of the Obama administration, Obama personally authorised a Tomahawk Cruise Missile Strike on a tiny village in rural Yemen called al-Majalah, killing 21 children and 14 women.

Silence… the world knew nothing because that was part of the deception.

When Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye investigated the one sided attack on the civilian village, the story recounted was horrific. Village elders spoke of how they had to pick up parts of bodies because they were torn to shreds. When Shaye revealed the US strike he was imprisoned by the US backed Dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh. After tremendous outrage, Saleh pardoned Shaye, only to receive a call from Obama himself to keep the whistle-blower journalist in prison. To date, he remains imprisoned.

Yet Obama’s bloody trail doesn’t stop there. Under the Obama administration, drones have become the weapon of choice. Remote controlled planes piloted from Nevada flying in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. In Pakistan alone, 474 to 881 civilians including 176 children have been snuffed out with no reasons, no answers and no accountability. These deaths are ‘justified’ by a drone policy that classifies all males of “fighting age” killed in drone attacks as “militants.” Drones are being actively flown over Africa from bases in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Niger and Seychelles. Under Obama, the US has effectively declared the world a battlefield authorizing the use of drone strike decided during ‘terror Tuesday’ meetings in which Obama plays the prosecutor, judge and executioner.
