Corrupting the Conversation: Challenging the Official Truth of ISIS™ (What Even Donald Trump Wont Tell You)

by Scott Creighton

In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true”  Tao Te Ching

This morning I am watching and reading the corporate talking heads rage against Donald Trump’s comments about President Obama and Hillary Clinton being the “founders” of ISIS™.  They all say he has “corrupted the conversation” by straying outside the lines of acceptable discourse when it comes to the newest enemy of the state.

On Morning Joe, Scarborough even offered up some acceptable talking points in terms of what folks are allowed too say about the origins of ISIS™ and they were:

  1. Perhaps we shouldn’t have disbanded the Iraqi army after the invasion liberation
  2. Obama shouldn’t have pulled troops out of Iraq when the Iraqi leadership (Maliki) demanded we adhered to the agreement and our “national interests” demanded we stayed
  3. Obama should have bombed the elected government and civilian infrastructure in Syria sooner

This is the acceptable version of what the civil discourse in the country SHOULD be about the rise of what we call ISIS™ according to people paid to establish such perimeters. And they are livid when it comes to condemning a popular public figure when he dares to wander outside those boundaries, the boundaries which, as you can see, still serve our “national interests”. This is what you are ALLOWED to discuss on the news, at the office, at the bar… this is the official truth of ISIS™.  It is not the truth but it is the official truth.

As many of you know, the official version of the truth is often quite different from reality. And often times, the further these things are from each other, the more passionately the guardians of the official truth respond when it is challenged.

We Are Attacking the GMCIR and the People of Fallujah, Not “ISIS™”

by Scott Creighton

FALLUJAH

The Iraqi puppet regime and it’s sugar daddy, the US military, has just started a new slaughter in Fallujah. They dropped leaflets over the city a couple days ago telling people to get out, pretty much the same thing they did back in 2004, twice, when they decimated the city and killed thousands of civilians because they failed to bow down to the new rulers of Iraq.

They say they are after “ISIS™”. That’s a lie. They are fighting against the Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal) not some fabricated justification cobbled together to give President Peace Prize some legitimacy as he rushes back into Iraq to preserve our grasp on what Dick Cheney and George Bush stole back in 2003.

Fallujah and Mosul are critical elements of this fight and it has nothing to do with British carney workers and the fake beheading videos they made.

The complicit press is already in the process of justifying huge numbers of civilian casualties as the “human shields” story and “ISIS death squads” stories are being cobbled together.

Clearly, large numbers of civilian casualties are expected in this new offensive to take Fallujah from the General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries (GMCIR)

While the MSM and most of the so-called “alternative” press in this country is focused on which unpopular candidate will “win” in November, I intend to spend as much time as I can covering the new massacre being carried out in Fallujah.
