History is the enemy as 'brilliant' psy-ops become the news


...History is buried with the dead and deformed of Vietnam and Bhopal. And history is the new enemy. On 28 May, President Obama launched a campaign to falsify the history of the war in Vietnam. To Obama, there was no Agent Orange, no free fire zones, no turkey shoots, no cover-ups of massacres, no rampant racism, no suicides (as many Americans took their own lives as died in the war), no defeat by a resistance army drawn from an impoverished society. It was, said Mr. Hopey Changey, "one of the most extraordinary stories of bravery and integrity in the annals of [US] military history".

The following day, the New York Times published a long article documenting how Obama personally selects the victims of his drone attacks across the world. He does this on "terror Tuesdays" when he browses through mug shots on a "kill list", some of them teenagers, including "a girl who looked even younger than her 17 years". Many are unknown or simply of military age. Guided by "pilots" sitting in front of computer screens in Las Vegas, the drones fire Hellfire missiles that suck the air out of lungs and blow people to bits. Last September, Obama killed a US citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, purely on the basis of hearsay that he was inciting terrorism. "This one is easy," he is quoted by aides as saying as he signed the man's death warrant. On 6 June, a drone killed 18 people in a village in Afghanistan, including women, children and the elderly who were celebrating a wedding.
The New York Times article was not a leak or an expose. It was a piece of PR designed by the Obama administration to show what a tough guy the 'commander-in-chief' can be in an election year. If re-elected, Brand Obama will continue serving the wealthy, pursuing truth-tellers, threatening countries, spreading computer viruses and murdering people every Tuesday.
The threats against Syria, co-ordinated in Washington and London, scale new peaks of hypocrisy. Contrary to the raw propaganda presented as news, the investigative journalism of the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung identifies those responsible for the massacre in Houla as the 'rebels' backed by Obama and Cameron. The paper's sources include the rebels themselves. This has not been completely ignored in Britain. Writing in his personal blog, ever so quietly, Jon Williams, the BBC world news editor, effectively dishes his own 'coverage', citing western officials who describe the 'psy-ops' operation against Syria as 'brilliant'. As brilliant as the destruction of Libya, and Iraq, and Afghanistan.
And as brilliant as the psy-ops of the Guardian's latest promotion of Alastair Campbell, the chief collaborator of Tony Blair in the criminal invasion of Iraq. In his "diaries", Campbell tries to splash Iraqi blood on the demon Murdoch. There is plenty to drench them all. But recognition that the respectable, liberal, Blair-fawning media was a vital accessory to such an epic crime is omitted and remains a singular test of intellectual and moral honesty in Britain.
How much longer must we subject ourselves to such an "invisible government"?  This term for insidious propaganda, first used by Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud and inventor of modern public relations, has never been more apt.  "False reality" requires historical amnesia, lying by omission and the transfer of significance to the insignificant. In this way, political systems promising security and social justice have been replaced by piracy, "austerity" and "perpetual war": an extremism dedicated to the overthrow of democracy. Applied to an individual, this would identify a psychopath. Why do we accept it?

Israel rounding up ‘irritant’ migrant Africans for deportation

From The Spec. 

“The next stage is the removal from Israel of all the infiltrators from Eritrea and Sudan, whose number comes close to 50,000 people,” said Interior Minister Eli Yishai.

From Yahoo

But hey, they are acting out of 'love.'

"This is only a small group of the infiltrators," Interior Minister Eli Yishai said. "I'm not acting out of hatred of strangers but love of my people and to rescue the homeland."
The goal is to repatriate all the estimated 60,000 African migrants, whose growing numbers are seen by many Israelis as a law and order issue and even a threat to the long-term viability of the Jewish state.

We are being lied to about the massacres in Syria...

As I suspected, an article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung describes how many of the victims of the massacres are actually loyalists of the Assad government, shia, alawite, not sunni like the rebels who claim to be the victims. Most likely they were carried out by brutal forces that the U.S. and gulf states are supporting to overthrow the Assad regime, imported from Libya after they did their butchering there. The massacres are carried out and then blamed on the government, and most of the western media follows along blind with the spin, intended to further the conflict, the tribal bloodshed, and at the cost of genocidal warfare create "regime change", the desired goal of Hillary Clinton, Obama, UN, NATO, gulf states etc...

Here is my translation of important parts of the third and sixth paragraphs of the article: 

At first glance the massacre [near Hama] resembles the one in Hula, where on the 25th of May 108 people were killed. In recent days, syrian opposition figures who come from the region have been able to reconstruct the apparent chain of events through reliable statements from witnesses. Their result contradicts the statements of the rebels, who blamed the shabiha militias close to the government. It is said that they [the opposition figures] operated under protection of the Syrian Army. Because opposition figures who reject violence are killed or at least threatened, the opposition figures don't want their names to be seen.....Killed [in the massacres], were nearly completely families of the alawite and shiite minority of Hula, whose population is more then ninety percent sunni. So were several dozen members of a family massacred, who in recent years converted from sunni to shiite Islam. Killed were distant members of the alawite family Shomaliya and the family of a sunni parliamentarian, because he was seen as a traitor. Immediately after the massacre, the perpetrators filmed the victims and posted the videos on the internet claiming them to be sunni victims. Representatives of the syrian government confirm this version, directed however that the government is obligated not to talk in terms of sunni and alawite. President Baschar al Assad belongs to the Alawites, the opposition is overwhelmingly sunni.

Syrian Rebels Set Trap for British Journalists

From Land Destroyer Report

Alex Thomson narrowly escapes attempt to kill his Channel 4 team, "clear the rebels deliberately set us up to be shot by the Syrian Army."  
by Tony Cartalucci

June 9, 2012 - While the New York Times publishes Goebbels-esque war propaganda pieces titled, "Assad, the Butcher," presuming to know the details about an unconfirmed "massacre" the UN is just now in the beginning stages of investigating - a disturbing and very telling incident unfolded that is very much confirmed. British Channel 4's Alex Thomson, one of the few Western journalists not only in Syria legally, but attempting to cover both sides of the conflict, was purposefully led by rebels into a trap designed to have him and his team killed by government troops.

Jim Rogers’ Most Dire Warning, “Please Get Worried”

From ETF Daily News

“Be very worried about 2013 and be very worried about 2014, because that’s when the next slowdown comes,” Rogers stated.  “In 2002 we had a recession and in 2008, it was worse because the debt was so much higher.”
He added, “The next time is going to be even worse because the debt is so staggeringly high now. So if you are not worried about 2013, please — get worried.”...

...During the U.S. collapse, stocks will drop and currency markets will be in turmoil, according to Rogers.  However, like a tsunami, the tide back into the U.S. dollar could be strong during the worst of the collapse, as it had been during the kickoff to the crisis with the fall of Lehman Brothers (from USDX 72 to 88), but the epicenter of a global currency crisis will come back to the shores of the U.S.
That’s the time when interest rates on U.S. sovereign debt could skyrocket, leading to a flight of the U.S. dollar and financial Armageddon predicted by some notable and respected analysts and economists.
Taking into account that 61 percent of global central bank reserves are held in U.S. dollars (28 percent held in euros), the extent of the damage to living standards in the U.S. and across the globe could be dramatic and sudden, according to Euro Pacific Capital CEO Peter Schiff and ShadowStats economist John Williams.
Greece’s less-than-two-percent weighting of the eurozone is equivalent to the weighting of the impact of America’s state of Maryland upon the U.S. dollar, so the fallout of a Greenback in free-fall, globally, has no precedent, no yardstick and no shape, giving rise to the notion that the purpose of FEMA facilities built throughout the U.S. during the past decade has been the result of preparations for a Greek-like moment of global financial history, with riotous crowds and mayhem on American soil 100 times more problematic than that of Greece’s.
