The Fake “21 Coptic Christians Beheading” Video – Part 1: Timing

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: (H/T Chads) Even Fox News admits it’s a fake.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

When 21 laborers in America die because the Obama administration has cut funding to OSHA to the point where they only have one guy to check on 50,000 job sites (yes, it’s an exaggeration, slightly), neoliberal talking heads like Bill O’Reilly get hard-ons and they call it “freedom”. Or when 21 laborers anywhere die because they can’t afford things like medicine even though they are working 50 hours a week (not an exaggeration), neoliberals like Bill start salivating at the thought of all that glorious “growth”

That’s because, as we all know by now, “Freedom” to the members of the neoliberal Washington Consensus (neocons, New Dems, (big “L”) Libertarians) means “freedom from New Deal social and economic justice reforms… and “Growth” simply means “the growth of the billionaire class’ profit margins”

So imagine my shock and awe when I heard Bill O’Reilly calling for a new “Holy War”, a new Crusades if you will, over the poorly produced video of the deaths of 21 Coptic Christian laborers in Libya at the hands of the fictitious “ISIS™”

“The Holy War is here and, unfortunately, it seems the president of the United States will be the last one to acknowledge it…I’m gonna also make a call …for every cleric in the country next Sunday, Saturday, Friday in the mosques, with the imams, to address this with their congregation and to say enough, that we people of good faith have to tell our leader to get in gear. I’d like to see every cleric in this country do that. …Let’s make that happen. And I want every pastor, every priest, every rabbi and every imam to email me personally and tell me you’re gonna do that and I’ll read as many on the air as I can.” Bill O’Reilly

Simultaneously, fake progressive sites like the Huffington Post are producing equally sophomoric propaganda pieces in support of Obama’s endless war of aggression in lock-step with those of the O’Reilly faction. Thus the true nature of the Washington Consensus becomes easier to see.

Let’s break this down just a tiny bit if we could on a few of the most basic elements of this event starting with:

Thanks to Obama and Poroshenko, Seems Like Peace in Ukraine is Doomed from the Start

by Scott Creighton

OBAMA 2

(flashback: Ukraine Crisis: Donbass. Chronicle of Genocide. Documentary Banned on MSM  )

It took them 15 hours of straight talks, but the Normandy Quartet participants meeting in Minsk ( Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel) have hammered out a tentative agreement to enter into a new ceasefire starting this Saturday evening and to withdraw heavy weapons like those being used by the Kiev government to shell civilian population centers in the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. Shelled them with illegal cluster munitions which are indiscriminate killers of civilians and combatants alike.

(flashback: HRW blames Kiev army for indiscriminately killing civilians with missiles )

However, that being said, the talks were reportedly contentious especially between Putin and Poroshenko and understandably so.

If you recall, the Kiev government has repeatedly lied and tried to fabricate evidence suggestion Russia has invaded their territorial boundaries and fired upon Ukrainian soldiers and commercial airliners alike.

The most recent bit of fabrication, one that took place right before these talks, Poroshenko held up 6 passports he claimed proved Russia had invaded his country then later refused to turn them over to anyone so his claim could be verified.

Apparently the talks were so touchy, the group decided to cancel their joint press conference they had scheduled for after the meeting and instead, Ukraine held their own, Russia held their own and France and Germany, not looking like they were taking sides, combined to hold a joint conference of their own.

The peace seems doomed from the start. Our Peace Prize President and our puppet in Kiev are already making sure it is. And here’s why…

Obama’s Salvador Option in Iraq: Death Squads Getting a Little Mainstream Attention… a little

by Scott Creighton

The consequence of not mentioning the connection between the US and the Iranian-backed Badr Brigade militia, the US-backed Wolf Brigade and other Special Police Commando units, or the extent of American recruitment, training, command, and control of these units[19] distorted perceptions of events in Iraq, creating the impression of senseless violence initiated by the Iraqis themselves and concealing the American hand in the planning and execution of the most savage forms of violence. Dirk Adriaensens, Brussels Tribunal

The fervor over the fake “burning man” video is laughable to the point of tears. It’s ridiculous actually when you put that one guy acting in a movie pretending to be about to die, in context of what our secret warriors have really done to millions of civilians over the past few decades. What our secret warriors, our “freedom fighters”, are STILL doing in Iraq as we speak.

Today, the New York Times had to shed a tiny bit of light on the reality creeping out of occupied Iraq and that reality is… yes, our puppet regime has unleashed organized death squads (just like I wrote about nearly a year ago and again in Aug.) on the population of their country who happen to opposed the corrupt, brutal government we installed.

Of course, the New York Times, the sickening subservient sycophants to global power structures that they are, had to present these monsters in the kindest, most endearing light they could muster. This is the new face of the old death squads of the Iraq Salvador Option under President Peace Prize’s administration, so of course, the Times had to present them like Bill Clinton playing a sax on Saturday Night Live.

This is how the New York Times presents death squads in Iraq

Poroshenko’s Pathetic Passport “Proof” Debunked by his Own Chief of Staff

by Scott Creighton

Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko has had his Colin Powell moment on the grand stage. He went before a body of international representatives and waved fraudulent “evidence” in the air demanding support for a bogus war of aggression. You can call it his Colin Powell moment or his Bibi Netanyahu ACME bomb moment. Both work I suppose.

How Do Barney Fife and Fidel Castro Factor Into the Biggest News Story of the Year?

by Scott Creighton

I wish to see if I can connect a few dots here, so bear with me.

Putting aside “ISIS™” for a moment and the “Big Story” about some talking head on MSNBC lying to folks (yeah, there’s some news for you) what are the biggest geopolitical trends in the news today? Is it the fact that Syriza, the new “Radical Left™” brand of 3rd Way centrist ideology (think “CHANGE™” circa 2008) seems to have forgotten what the term “odious debt” means?

In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion. Wiki

Is that the biggest story in the world today? Well, if you consider the fact that international debt has risen by 57 trillion dollars since the global economic terrorism of 2008, coupled with the fact that much if not ALL of that new additional debt may be declared odious were Greece to set the precedent, well, that could very well be the story of the year. The story of the decade or the millennium in fact.

But it isn’t, because they wont (“use us to implement the European programme” Varoufakis).

And the usually antagonistic ones, the Webster Tarpley’s of the “interwebs”, aren’t really calling for Syriza to live up to their campaign pledge and do that.

How about “ISIS™”? Now that the MTV music video director and their team made that “burning man” video, seems like all the world wants a piece of “ISIS™” butt.

We have senators and congressman lining up to get in front of anyone with a camera so they can pledge their undying devotion to autocratic, despotic regimes like those in Jordan, UAE, Bahrain and Qatar for the sole purpose of providing them weapons and training, all paid for with your tax dollars while they say they can’t afford to pay teachers here in the states.

No money for teachers or disabled folks but we got butt-loads of cash to heap on dictators from the Middle East to help bomb Syria into regime change. Funny how that works, ain’t it?

We have “progressive” TV personalities spending enormous amounts of their airtime proving what warmongering hawks they can be just like the neocons of yesteryear they pilloried for a decade.

We have the Obama administration, the President Peace Prize farce, presenting their own version, a hand-crafted document they expect to be passed without debate, authorizing war anywhere, anytime against anyone they say is supporting “ISIS™”. That new AUMF document, one usually crafted by congress, will be slapped on the desks of leading congressmen sometime today or tomorrow. It’s something this president has wanted since they created “ISIS™” now that the old one from 2001 is a bit sketchy considering the fact that it names al Qaeda as the enemy and we now call them “moderates” and are funding them in Syria.

And all of this is based on what? A ridiculous MTV-styled video custom made for the purpose of providing the pretext for what is happening right now and released on the very same day the King of Jordan was visiting Obama and congress looking for money to fight “ISIS™”. (I will write more about that video later this morning)

Are those the biggest stories in the world today?

No. Not in my opinion.

So what is? What is the one big story everyone knows about and no one is talking about and how does Barney Fife and Fidel Castro of all people fit into this? Have I gone crazy? Inquiring minds want to know.

“Cartalucci” is at it Again: Praising the Despotic Junta in Thailand and Blaming the Left for the Recent Gladio Op

by Scott Creighton (H/T tommyknocker1)

“Thaksin’s regime is going. It is a cancer, you can choose to pray and wave the banner of democracy like children, we’ll choose to cut it out.” Tony Cartalucci

” the empty dream of international democracy” “Tony Cartalucci”

“the circus that is modern “democracy.” ” “Tony Cartalucci”

In Thailand, the illegal junta that came to power last May is doing everything they can to make sure they remain in power in perpetuity.

To that end,  the junta, officially called the “National Council for Peace and Order”, seek to impeach the former elected Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who has already been removed from office.

Impeachment will mean she can’t run for office for 5 years which will effectively ban the most popular political party from participation in the next round of “elections” which the junta claims wont take place til 2016 or so.

The people of Thailand understand that ploy and are understandably upset by it. So, with the expectation of large protests on the horizon, protests that have been made illegal under the rule of the current despots, the Thai junta announced recently that they would be cracking down on all of them and banning media coverage of any events that unfold.

To justify those actions, it appears the military thugs have staged a couple “terrorist” acts which will provide ample pretext for the coming repression of the political majority that has won every election in Thailand since 2001. So don’t be caught blogging any pertinent questions regarding who committed these acts of terrorism. Doing so will get you brought before Big Brother, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the Thai military junta, for some “reeducation”

As he (they) have done in the past, “Tony Cartalucci” is busy white-washing the actions of the illegal junta and blaming the leftist for the Operation Gladio styled acts which have recently took place. As usual when it comes to military juntas across the globe, “Tony’s” evidence is spurious at best and doesn’t hold up to the slightest investigation.
