Jon Stewert Praises the Murder of Moammar Gadhafi and the Illegal NATO Bombing of Libya

by Scott Creighton

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.” Edward Bernays, Propaganda, page 37

I have long since determined that Jon Stewart is nothing more than a neo-con war-mongering cheerleader for the globalist elites who’s task it is to  trick the left with his Jerry Lewisesque schtick into supporting some of the worst crimes against humanity in our recent history. Take for example this comment in which Jon Stewart says in “his world” George Bush is not really a war criminal…

“You’ve said, ‘Bush is war criminal.’ Now that may be technically true. In my world ‘war criminal’ is Pol Pot or the Nuremberg trials,” Jon Stewart

As I have pointed out, Stewart hosts one neo-con after another as guests on his show years after their crimes in an effort to help them rebuild their tarnished reputations and sell whatever ghost written books they happen to be hawking that month. Stewart reached a new low when he tacitly supported the Israeli government’s brutal attack on the Mavi Marmara and their criminal attack on the people of Gaza under Operation Cast Lead which resulted in the murder of 1,400 Palestinian civilians 700 of which were children. He has often repeated pure propaganda from Likud type front groups like MEMRI TV demonizing the Palestinian people to his audience of left-leaning Americans and he jumped right on board when South Park was threatened by a fake Muslim convert being played by an ex-Israeli setter.

That is to say nothing of Jon Stewart recent groveling at the feet of the ultimate globalist Bill Clinton.

But if you think all of that war-mongering neo-con spin was bad coming from a so-called leader of the American Left, you haven’t seen anything until you see Jon Stewart’s take on the recent premeditated murder of Moammar Gadhafi (while he was already in custody no less) and the NATO bombing of the people of Libya.

Jon and his writers kick his unfunny propaganda into full gear on this one, barely leaving one single line free of pro-Obama/pro-illegal war spin. It is Orwellian to say the least and completely unsupported by any facts what so ever as you will see.

I will dissect his monologue line by line, exposing the obvious propaganda and the less obvious so others can see how America is being programed even by their supposed “liberal” public figures. We must reject the lies of the morally vapid like the Clintons and Jon Stewart and reclaim the ethical integrity of our earlier roots.

The Strauss-Kahn Set-Up and the Globalist Assault on Greek Sovereignty

by Scott Creighton

Now that Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been successfully removed from the equation, the globalist financial institutions are free to cash in on the Great Recession they created.  They’re attempting to hammer the people of Greece into submission with new “unprecedented” levels of privatization of public assets and even calls for “outside institutions” to take over some aspects of governing their country… like tax collection to start with. The buzz-word here is “sovereignty” and Greece is only the beginning.

“In order for the country to get future bailout money, the country will have to give up some sovereignty.

Specifically, according to a bombshell FT report, outside authorities will take over various functions related to tax collection (a big time problem in Athens) and privatizations.”  Business Insider

George Bush is Not a War Criminal in Jon Stewart’s World?

by Scott Creighton

Jon Stewart is still trying to run damage control over the “Million Moderate March” but it seems, like Rand Paul, when confronted with the opportunity to speak off the cuff, it would probably be better if he had just kept his mouth shut.

The Phantom Left

(“Beck, Colbert and Stewart all serve the same masters. And it is not us.” hmmm. Now where have I heard that before?)

by Chris Hedges, Truthdig

The American left is a phantom. It is conjured up by the right wing to tag Barack Obama as a socialist and used by the liberal class to justify its complacency and lethargy. It diverts attention from corporate power. It perpetuates the myth of a democratic system that is influenced by the votes of citizens, political platforms and the work of legislators. It keeps the world neatly divided into a left and a right. The phantom left functions as a convenient scapegoat. The right wing blames it for moral degeneration and fiscal chaos. The liberal class uses it to call for “moderation.” And while we waste our time talking nonsense, the engines of corporate power—masked, ruthless and unexamined—happily devour the state.

President Peace Prize Sending “Extremely Pro-active Moderates Squads” to Yemen as the Moderate Bus Rolls On

by Scott Creighton

Just a couple of days after Arianna Huffington spent a quarter of a million dollars of someone’s money (Sumner Redstone?) busing in a quarter of a million people to the “Rally to Restore Complacency“, President Peace Prize quietly announced that he is handing over a section of the U.S. military to the criminal spooks at the CIA for “hunter killer” operations in Yemen.  So while Jon Stewart and friends were goofing around telling people to relax “everything is OK”, President Obama was literally laying out the details of using US troops to form death squads in a nation ruled by a despotic dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh.

“The foiled mail bombing plot by suspected al Qaeda militants in Yemen has added urgency to an Obama administration review of expanded military options that include putting elite U.S. hunter-killer teams that operate secretly in the country under Central Intelligence Agency authority”. Wall Street Journal

Citing unnamed government officials, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the administration has responded to the alleged airplane mail bomb plot by stepping up its consideration of “military options” inside Yemen.

According to the report, these plans would include placing “elite US hunter-killer teams that operate secretly in the country under Central Intelligence Agency authority.” The Journal added, “The White House is already considering adding armed CIA drones to the arsenal against militants in Yemen, mirroring the agency’s Pakistan campaign.”

The purpose of placing the US intervention in Yemen (now largely conducted by US military special operations forces) under CIA command, the report states, would be to “streamline US decision-making, giving the White House more direct control over day-to-day operations.”  Bill Van Auken

The translation of that last bit is that it gives Hillary Clinton at the state department more control of killing people in Yemen who are resisting a corrupt president and government who are in the pockets of big US and British businesses. When situations like that developed in the past in countries like Chile under Pinochet and Indonesia under Suharto, we used to call those groups “death squads”.  I suppose now we just call them “extremely pro-active moderates

Daily Show Executive Producer Assaults Truth Activists

by Scott Creighton

It’s in the day-to-day grind that we can really find ourselves; how we react everyday to the little things in life that piss us off. If you want to see how Daily Show executive producers react to things when they are not busy telling America’s Liberal’s and Left wing progressives to just “stop yelling” so much, take a look at this video below.

This is the REAL Jon Stewart… a smug, pompous ass surrounded by virtual thugs.

activist: “Hey Jon, do you believe it? How did World Trade Center 7 come to the ground?”

audience and Daily Show staff: WHAAAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAA!

It’s a joke to them. Now granted, it was the wrong place to bring this up but still, that’s New York city… how many blocks is THAT store from Ground Zero? Closer than the Mosque?… and they are laughing about a building collapsing into its own footprint on Sept. 11th, 2001?

Is being ignorant about the event that “changed everything” somehow funny now?

Rally to Restore Credibility of the Vishy Dems

by Scott Creighton

Pétain and the Vichy Regime willfully collaborated with the German occupation to a high degree.

The Viacom backed “Rally to Restore Sanity” is rolling right along. They have several websites up and a “grassroots” network of folks hosting trips to DC and social viewing house parties since Comedy Central will dedicate their entire Saturday Oct. 30th broadcast to the “event”.

The dismissive nature and deeply insulting attitude of this sham of a PR stunt is readily apparent to even the casual observer, not just by what Jon Stewart has already said about the event, but also it’s made perfectly clear on their 2 different websites.

He (Jon Stewart) later labeled it a “Million Moderate March.” The purpose, he said, is to counter what he called a minority of 15 percent or 20 percent of the country that has dominated the national political discussion with extreme rhetoric. He tarred both parties with that charge, mentioning both the attacks on the right against President Obama for being everything from a socialist to un-American and on the left against former President Bush for being a war criminal. Glenn Greenwald

“Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority.”  Rally to Restore Sanity website

Those posters look “sane” to you?

President Obama’s attorney general is actually arguing that John Ashcroft and ANY attorney general (wink wink) is immune from prosecution and personal responsibility if they KNOWINGLY break the law. That wouldn’t make a sane man worry, now would it? Do you think that defies the spirit of the constitution? Is that “unAmerican”?

President Obama refused to call for a moratorium on fraudulent foreclosures and once his “sane” position was announced, it took all of 3 days for Bank of America to restart their criminal eviction processes while the entire country knows that many of the documents they are presenting in courts of law are either forged or flawed completely. Should sane men not care if the rule of law means nothing anymore?

But Obama did have time to go on The View and Mythbusters.

That’s how “well’  things are going right now and I haven’t even mentioned the FBI busting into the homes of peace activists and stealing their stuff or politicians using active duty servicemen as political thugs or even the billions of dollars flooding the election campaigns from undisclosed corporate interests.

Actually, a lot of things are going pretty well“… Really? Now, is that sane?

Actually, a lot of things are going pretty well” … this is the new product slogan of the Vishy Dems and their current spokes-puppet, Jon Stewart. He recently had globalist Bill Clinton on his show and he has announced President Strike-a-pose will be on the night before the elections.

The multimillionaire sock puppet apologist, Jon Stewart, wants us all to stick our heads in the sand, spread our cheeks, and cough. Anybody who doesn’t, anybody who’s angry and ready to yell a little about all this betrayal from our political leaders and the “CHANGE” regime, is obviously mentally unstable.

“Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs)…”

This is the worst kind of dismissive and insulting rhetoric I have heard from the so-called left since Rahm called us vocal real lefties “fucking retards”.If you believe that George Bush is a war criminal who should be prosecuted you’re just a malcontent with no life, no family, and no grasp on reality, apparently. If you think that President Obama is betraying the trust we bestowed on him and selling us out to the corporations and the banks, then the same can be said about you as well.

You angry? You want real change? You want accountability? You want work? You want something to show for the trillion-dollar stimulus giveaway or the banker bailout or the mandatory private insurance plan? You want to end the states secrets loophole or bring our soldiers back from Iraq and Afghanistan?

Get a life. Get a job. And if you can’t support the president at wartime, just shut up. That’s the “Rally to Restore Sanity” in a nutshell.

Sound familiar? Does to me… in fact, I don’t think it would be hard at all to find the exact same perverse logic and abusive language used by Bill O’Reilly back in 2003 to dismiss those of us who were actively protesting the attack and invasion of Iraq.

And now we get it from the Jon Stewart camp?

I’m not surprised. In the end they serve the same masters: Murdoch of News Corp and Redstone of Viacom.

Pick a Lede for the Rick Sanchez Interview Story: “Jews in the Media?” or “Pete Dominick Plays the Holocaust Card”

by Scott Creighton

First of all, Rick Sanchez is an idiot like most talking heads on news programs. No news there… and Jon Stewart is certainly prejudicial

NEWS FLASH: most MSM news anchors are self-absorbed, moderately educated, “go-along-to-get-along” company-men, whose main talent in life is to read copy, out loud, and look trustworthy while not making waves like Phil Donahue did prior to the invasion of Iraq.

That said, this Sanchez/Stewart story is being blown way out of proportion (certainly takes the attention off of Stewart’s recent comment about George W. Bush not being a war criminal, now doesn’t it?) plus most of the progressive blogs are simply not giving you the full story when they report what was said during the interview.

Yes, Rick Sanchez said jews control most of the MSM media “news” programs these days.

NEWS FLASH: most NBA players are black.

That was enough to send Pete Dominick deep into defense mode and the tried and true holocaust card was sure to follow not long after. Which of course is what most (ie. “all”) the news coverage on the Rick Sanchez story fails to mention… so I have to.

Globalization, Clinton, Haiti and Sanity – Let’s All Hop on the Moderate Bus

by Scott Creighton

The true nature of globalization is pretty easy to see these days. Hell, they hardly even attempt to hide it anymore… it takes just a little work to flesh it all out as I intend to do right now.

One little case in particular has exposed just bit of the nature of the beast and all of its multifaceted orchestrations – Haiti.

Now 8 months after the earthquake that killed an estimate 300,000 people in Haiti, people are still suffering. The promised aid has not found its way to the ground level projects that will help the Haitian people, the people we wanted to help when the money was promised.

So who is in charge of that fund of nearly 10 billion dollars of aid money? Bill Clinton, U.N. Special Envoy to Haiti and co-chair of Interim Haiti Reconstruction Commission (IHRC) and renowned globalist stooge of the “New Dem” party fame (“New Dems” meaning far right leaning neoliberals of the democrats who sold us out to the bankers and corporation decades ago). How did he come to be put in charge of all that money and thus, the future of Haiti? His globalist wife Hillary gave him the job.

(funny how Rod Blagojevich is impeached and put on trial for simply suggesting to an aid that he should get something out of his opportunity to appoint Obama’s replacement in the senate, yet when Hillary actually puts her husband in charge of a 9 billion dollar reconstruction fund in a country he helped destroy with his neoliberal plans in the past, not a single negative word is said about it in the press, left or right)

Now, this is how globalization works…

Centrist Central: How Stewart and Colbert are Selling the Neocon Agenda to the Left

by Scott Creighton 

I just have to ask, is there anything, anything, that billionare Sumner Redstone’s progressive propaganda tag-team of Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert won’t do to help turn the supposed left 180 degrees from positions they held during the previous administration? 

I have written several times about Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert turning into blatant propagandists since the Chosen One took office.

For example: there’s the time Jon Stewart played the MEMRI TV video demonizing Palestinians, Stephen Colbert’s recent revolting sucking-up to globalist Joe Biden, there was Stewart’s story about the South Park episode psyop involving Revolution Muslim which turns out to be run by a “converted” jewish ex-settler from the West Bank, Stephen’s sycophantic groveling and rebranding the Afghan occupation just after Obama took office, and then of course Stewart’s ambushing of Rod Blagojevich which I thought was a pretty odd position for a “progressive” to take after he practically gave back rubs and “happy endings” to each and every neocon that has come on his set to pimp their new books or try to rebrand themselves as anything but the war criminals they are. That list includes but is not limited to Bill Kristol, Ari Fleischer, John Bolton, Douglas Feith, Thomas Friedman, Tom Ridge, and John Yoo.  Each and every one of the previously named neocons and or war criminals, Jon Stewart treated with more respect than he did Rod Blagojevich who’s only crime was to threaten Bank of America if they didn’t live up to the conditions of the banker bailout bill. 

Recently these two progressive shills have each taken on a new directive which certainly lives up to their pathetic performances in the past.

Jon Stewart Ambushes Rod Blagojevich

by Scott Creighton

Holding to his traditional role as “left” mouthpiece for the neoliberal status quo and the Obama/Rahm/Clinton/AIPAC junta, Jon Stewart ( born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz) ambushed Rod Blagojevich on his show the other night after Blago beat out 23 of 24 trumped-up charges  .

You think he would congratulate him, but instead he made a joke out of it and then tried to convict him in the court of public “left” opinion.

One of those charges Blago beat was “trying to sell the Illinois Senate seat” Obama had vacated.  Unbelievably, this charge remains after Barack Obama’s own investigation found that Blagojevich did NOT try to “sell the senate seat”. Yet Jon Stewart completely ignores all the facts surrounding the case and steadily berates Blagojevich, eventually stooping to insinuation that his guest was a “sociopath”

Blago stands wrongly accused of trying to sell the senate seat, still.  Which is unbelievable since Obama’s own investigation has revealed that neither Blagojevich or his people tried to work a deal for the senate seat.

The accounts support your statement on December 11, 2008 that you “have never spoken to the Governor on this subject [or] about these issues,” and that you “had no contact with the Governor’s office.” In addition, the accounts contain no indication of inappropriate discussions with the Governor or anyone from his office about a “deal” or a quid pro quo arrangement in which he would receive a personal benefit in return for any specific appointment to fill the vacancy.”  Transition Staff Contacts with the Governor’s Office, Dec. 2008

Mr. Harris did not make any effort to extract a personal benefit for the Governor in any of these conversations,” the report states. “There was no discussion of a cabinet position, of 501c(4), of a private sector position or of any other personal benefit to the Governor in exchange for the Senate appointment.”  American Everyman, January 3rd, 2009

Now you would think they might drop that charge after the Obama administration admitted that Blago didn’t try to “sell the senate seat” in public but since they really had nothing else, and since the MSM tried their best to bury that part of the story, I suppose they ran with it anyway. Jon Stewart seemed to “forget’ all about that little factoid himself…

“The charge of selling the senate seat. That vote was 11 to 1 against you. They may have said they didn’t prove their case but you are hitting .083 with the jurors… they came pretty close to proving their case.”  Jon Stewart

“You’re a guy that’s the most adamant about his innocence of anyone I ever met, so you’re either the victim of a terrible persecution or you’re a sociopath,” Stewart said. “I want to believe you’re not a sociopath, so you have to come out — and not on talk shows — in a court of law, and clear your name. You have to.”  Huffington Post Aug. 24, 2010

The definition of a sociopath is as follows: “a person, as a psychopathic personality, whose behavior is antisocial and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”

Stewart claimed Blago could be a sociopath because he had claimed he would take the stand and testify, but after seeing the weak case presented by the prosecution, he did not.

Is that the definition of a sociopath?

Interestingly, Jon Stewart has had on his show Marc Thiessen, Douglas Feith, John Yoo, John Bolton, Henry Kissinger, M. Albreight, and Rudolph Giuliani to name a few, but he never called any of them a “sociopath” to my knowledge. He never even suggested they could be a sociopath if they don’t testify in open court, whatever that means.

Kind of an odd behavioral pattern for a “liberal” isn’t it?

Feel the Hate

Hey Jon Stewart. Here’s a video just brimming with hate.  One that wasn’t “translated” by a ultra-Zionist propaganda mill.  Let’s see you do a “Go Fuck Yourselves!” dance over this one!

Q:”What about the Gaza strip?”  A: “It belongs to Israel”

“Obama… keep in mind… his name is Hussain… he is the enemy of Israel.”

“East Jerusalem is Israel… it belongs to the Jews.”

“Hands off Israel. Keep the money coming… and hands off”

“Benjamin Netanyahu is the leader of the free world. He has been called by God to accept the mantle the United States dropped… since citizenship isn’t required anymore, maybe we can get him to run for president over here”

“Jerusalem is for Jews. All of Jerusalem, all of Israel… we don’t believe in “Peace Now”… we believe in “Strength Now”

While the pro-settler elements rallied in Manhattan, their counterparts from the radical Kahanist movement in the Hebron-based settlement of Tel Rumeida rampaged through Palestinian neighborhood in East Jerusalem, inciting violent confrontations while announcing their intention to rid the area of its historical Arab presenceAlterNet

So how far do you think these guys would go to make the average American hate Muslims as much as they do? You think they would make up fake videos? You think one or two of them might pretend to be “Revolution Muslims”? What do you think, Jon?  The world is just dying to hear your “Go Fuck Yourselves!” song just one more time.

Educating Jon

by Scott Creighton

Absent the naive expectation of any meaningful catharsis on the part of Jon Stewart (after all “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding itUpton Sinclair), the ambition of the following revelations rests primarily in the “hearts and minds” of his audience.  Make no mistake about it, whether by absence of conscious or by sloppy investigational practices (both equally inexcusable), Jon Stewart is peddling neoconservative propaganda disguised as “insightful liberal comedy” and the intended outcome of that propaganda, quite simply, is to create an atmosphere in Progressive America conducive to actions resulting in dire consequences to people all over the world. There will be blood.

Without my having to resort to breathless hyperbole (again), simply allow me to say that in these difficult and dangerous times, Jon Stewart’s cavalier attitude about the deliberately misleading and  inaccurate messages he gives to his audience is so remarkably hypocritical that any self-respecting liberal must either publicly call him to account for his recent behavior, or simply leave him to rot in his own cesspool of deceit. And as his Nielsen ratings drop because his progressive audience has grown tired of hearing his neocon talking points glibly regurgitated and as his network, Comedy Central (Viacom), begins to consider less prominent roles for Stewart in their organization, it is reasonable to expect an entirely new production direction to be laid out for the Daily Show (a “retooling” if you will), complete with a drastically improved vetting process by their writing staff minus the Karl Rovian talking points circa 2003. 

The “market” is a terrible and powerful thing and understanding its nature can be quite useful.

In the ‘news” business and the “fake news” business alike (aren’t both “fake” anyway?), the key to sustainable marketability and ratings points/share growth is credibility. Without it, you have nothing. Without credibility you have no “trust” and without “trust” you have declining market share (Just ask Goldman Sachs what stock value they place in “trust” as they squirm and wiggle from one congressional committee investigation to the next).  It is that declining market share which will ultimately facilitate the title of this article. It is not within this writer’s limited purview to compel one such as Jon Stewart to forgo his darker vocation, but it is well within yours.

Israel’s Big and Small Apartheids: The meaning of a Jewish state

by Jonathan Cook, Global Research

Israel’s apologists are very exercised about the idea that Israel has been singled out for special scrutiny and criticism. I wish to argue, however, that in most discussions of Israel it actually gets off extremely lightly: that many features of the Israeli polity would be considered exceptional or extraordinary in any other democratic state.

That is not surprising because, as I will argue, Israel is neither a liberal democracy nor even a “Jewish and democratic state”, as its supporters claim. It is an apartheid state, not only in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza, but also inside Israel proper. Today, in the occupied territories, the apartheid nature of Israeli rule is irrefutable — if little mentioned by Western politicians or the media. But inside Israel itself, it is largely veiled and hidden. My purpose today is to try to remove the veil a little.

Rabbis Condemn Israel for War Crimes Committed in Gaza: Open Letter to Judge Goldstone

Dear Judge Goldstone,

As rabbis from diverse traditions and locations, we want to extend our warmest mazel tov to you as an elder in our community upon the Bar Mitzvah of your grandson. Bar and Bat Mitzvah is a call to conscience, a call to be responsible for the welfare of others, a call to fulfill the covenant of peace and justice articulated in our tradition.

As rabbis, we note the religious implications of the Report you authored. We are reminded of Shimon Ben Gamliel’s quote, “The world stands on three things: justice, truth, and peace as it says ‘Execute the judgment of truth, and justice and peace will be established in your gates’ (Zaccariah 8:16).” We affirm the truth of the report that bears your name.
