America’s “Blacklist” Conspiracy of Silence

Once again MSM frauds attempt to ignore and bury one of the most critical stories of the year    

By Gordon Duff

Last week the Pakistani government told the media that the ISIS leader they captured in December had a U.S. based paymaster, something neither confirmed nor denied by the U.S. though the press release indicated that Secretary of State John Kerry was briefed on this revelation.

There is a reason for Kerry’s silence. If ISIS is funded by the U.S. then the black C130 aircraft that resupply them are American too. Given what we now know, it is not unreasonable to assume that Victoria Nuland, on orders from “somewhere “ordered the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 while her “betters” managed the press response and the phony half-hearted Dutch “investigation.”

This hypothesis, hardly a conspiracy theory, supports one inexorable fact; the rumors of a “Secret Shadow Government” are more fact than rumor. High level sources within the U.S. Department of Justice tell us that every major investigation undertaken since 1990, financial fraud, terrorism, narcotics, espionage, all have been quashed, all involved silenced, removed, discredited and even killed.

All investigations end because all real investigations stumble on the same players and come to the same conclusions; America is ruled by a multi-generational crime cartel that includes the biggest names in America politics. Yesterday, an American television show got it exactly right as “fiction” is the only outlet for truth in a world turned upside down. The show was Blacklist and we will be discussing how much they got right.

The Torture Report

Recent reports of CIA torture and abuses omitted a key fact, the CIA “black site” prison system a worldwide gulag hidden on abandoned oil platforms, in underground storage facilities and psychiatric hospitals or, most often jails or prisons on trumped up charges, or on American military bases, contains more American “whistleblowers” than terrorists. 

Susan Lindauer was “black sited” in a psychiatric hospital on an American military base, Lee Wanta was “black sited” as was Chip Tatum, Victor Bout and Dimitri Khalezov. Gwyneth Todd escaped assassination by Bush operatives in Bahrain but Roland Carnaby, Chris Kyle, Helric Fredou, Dr. David Kelly, Michael Connell, Vince Foster, Ron Brown and John Wheeler III died mysteriously. US Senators Paul Wellstone, Mel Carnahan along with candidates Sonny Bono and John Ashbrook were murdered, two air crashes, a "skiing accident" and "accidental ingestion of crushed glass." I could add a hundred names to the list, keeping it “recent,” I would start with John and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King and, when I finished, it would be enough names to fill a stadium. Do you see where this is going?

Bridging the Gap Between Drama and Reality TV

An American TV drama, as is sometimes the case as with the quickly cancelled and quite excellent Rubicon, which exposed US complicity in 9/11, has broken new ground. Most are aware of America’s rendition program and CIA black site prisons. Blacklist show regularly covers these issues. It also openly admits that the CIA routinely executes prisoners. They actually show the method, prisoners hoisted in the air by electric winches, chains around their necks strangling them, something that a skilled operator can use for both interrogation and “termination with extreme prejudice” or, as they call it now, “depersonalization.”

Where the “new ground” is broken is the admission that black site prisons are America buries its secrets not its enemies. The TV show “Blacklist” openly exposes, albeit fictionally, a deep parallel with the reality behind 9/11 and so many terror attacks and the virtual army of silenced witnesses and investigators that were too valuable to be “suicided or killed,” too independent to be threatened with gag orders and too moral to be bribed.

Too often, fiction trumps reality. Last night was no exception. Yesterday was a historic day by American standards; it was “Superbowl Sunday,” now a holiday celebrating watching television and drinking beer. Nothing could be more appropriate to follow than the new season of the TV show “Blacklist.”

Let me explain. Blacklist is a TV show about a fugitive billionaire arms dealer who makes a deal with the US government to help him kill his enemies who are, for the most part, also wanted fugitives. The character is based roughly on Victor Bout.

Salon, in an article from February 2010 explains a bit about Bout and the arms trade, an article that strangely has no listed author:

“First, the substantial Jewish investment in the global arms trade permits Israel to support rebel groups worldwide through mafia channels that otherwise would be credited to Israeli government policy. For example, Russian-Jewish mafia figures are financing the Darfur separatists in Sudan (though the agency of Ukrainian-Jewish boss Viktor Bout), and the Colombian communist FARC rebels through the agency of the greatest boss of them all, the Israeli Simon Mogilevich, who bought the Hungarian anti-aircraft factories in the early 1990s…”

Gagged and Silenced

Thousands of Americans, members of the military, police, judicial, legislative, regulatory and intelligence services and agencies are currently gagged, silenced from reporting crimes against the people of the United States and the world at large.

Whistleblowers have revealed more than just classified material. They have described the enormity of what is an even greater threat, how “national security” and phony investigations are used to gag witnesses and cover up crimes.

Currently there are secret grand juries across the US that have no other purpose than to corral witnesses and threaten them with prison. No indictments ever come out of these legal monstrosities including and especially the Houston based Federal grand jury covering the Able Danger/9/11 related crimes.

In the TV drama, Blacklist, the secret to be protected wasn’t a terror plot but rather a list of government officials who were complicit in covering up crimes. “If the public finds out, if they get ahold of this list, they will hang every one of them.” The witnesses who could and should be testifying against many of America’s top generals, members of congress, the entire Bush (41) administration, not just for torture but drug running, espionage, fraud and murder, all are silenced.

Inside the “Beltway,” the road surrounding the US capitol, insiders share the spoils of worldwide crime, protected by a legal system used to protect only the worst criminals while supposedly warring on imaginary terrorists.

The only laws consistently enforced inside the United States are those that silence those who would report complicity in treason and terrorism by the “highest in the land.

Hypocrisy Empire (III)

As Obama attempts to spark WWIII in Europe, world leaders begin to wake up to the reality they may soon cease to exist: Why the use of "soft power" leads to grave consequences

By Dmitry Minin

Part I, Part II

The hypocrisy intrinsic to American policy is especially apparent in the use of soft or smart power. Joseph Nye, former Deputy to the Undersecretary of State for Security Assistance, Science, and Technology and Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, coined the term. He had accumulated the experience of reaching the political goals without the use of force to make it an independent policy direction. According to him, "Soft power is the ability to get what you want through attraction rather than coercion or payments. It arises from the attractiveness of a country's culture, political ideals, and policies. When our policies are seen as legitimate in the eyes of others, our soft power is enhanced." (1) Then he concluded that soft power alone was not enough so he came up with combination of hard and soft power to create optimal strategies in particular contexts. 

Power is the ability to affect others to get what you want, and that requires a set of tools. Some of these are tools of coercion or payment, or hard power, and some are tools of attraction, or soft power. But soft power or hard power, American politicians always want the same thing – to establish their superiority at the lowest possible price. The White House primarily saw the smart power as an effective instrument of manipulation. Actually it was manipulation that brought Obama to power. His duplicity became evident when he received the Nobel Prize. It’s not clear what achievements made him a prize-winner. 

Back then he said something totally inconsistent with the purpose of the ceremony, "We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes. There will be times when nations - acting individually or in concert -- will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified." (2) Perhaps it was not the fault of Joseph Nye - he was misunderstood. Citing scholars politicians always pick up only what sounds right to serve their point. 

For instance, Joseph Nye envisioned the possibility of one power undermining another, especially as a result of the actions undertaken by military. He believed that economic sanctions rarely result in achieving political goals because they first hurt common people, not ruling elites. Even financial aid often results in more corruption, including among the ranks of privileged. By undermining the balance between social groups it rather leads to exasperation instead of desired reaction. According to Nye, some saw soft power in the XXI century as a form of cultural imperialism. Mythmaking becomes a currency of soft power and governments compete with each other and other actors to gain more trust while debilitating the confidence in others. Clumsy shots in a propaganda war may provoke derision; they could be counterproductive to tarnish the country’s reputation and undermine its credibility. Too much coercion may be damageable if it leads to excessive self-confidence. In this case soft power happens to be nothing more than a cover for hard power to prevent the accomplishment of set goals. For instance, the scenes of mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib and the Abu Ghraib have not only reduced trust in American values but rather engendered strong belief that they were permeated by hypocrisy. 

The Obama administration ignored all the Joseph Nye’s warnings. The double standards did not make the US policy more attractive neither in the Middle East, nor Ukraine. Former European commissioner for international relations Chris Patten says that when even high standing foreign officials meet someone from US administration they should remember that they are not the ones who call the shots. No matter how polite Americans could be, an official is made feel dependent and the task is to demonstrate zeal hoping to get away with the blessings for one’s future endeavors. Going abroad American officials bring along retinues big enough to make Persian King Darius envy them. They book entire hotels, city life stops, men with bull necks and communication earpieces knock out innocent pedestrians on the streets. It’s not the way to capture hearts and souls, says Chris Patten. But it’s only one side of the coin. 

The other side is the fact that ensuing repercussions are to be faced by those soft or smart power is targeted at. They are catastrophic. The new strategy of the White House destabilizes the situation in the world and kills people even more than hard power does because it’s built on provoking internal conflicts and dissemination of uncontrollable chaos. By no possible stretch of imagination could Joseph Nye see himself giving birth to this type of Frankenstein. 

In the eyes of Washington the need to democratize (meaning a bloody regime change in a country) depends on the loyalty to «democratizer» (the United States). Well-known US political scholar Fareed Zakaria writes that the United States never uttered a word when democrats in Taiwan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were made to keep their mouths shut. Mr. Zakaria believes that if Washington makes exclusions from the rule, then others will follow the suit. The US has the option of making no exclusions. But to do neither or to call for doing one thing and then do something else is hypocrisy. It undermines the trust in America. Pierre Hassner writes that the United States has lost the ability to have a critical view of the plans to establish its hegemony in the unipolar world that emerged after the Cold War. If power is uncontrolled and subject to corruption at home then how can the world be protected when it becomes global? (3). This is the impact of intrinsic specific feature of American mentality – one can own black slaves and at the same time believe that he sets the example of democracy-minded politician. 

According to Israeli political and military expert, the former head of the Israeli secret services "Nativ" Yaakov Kedmi, the US duplicity and unscrupulousness became evident before WWII when the United States supported the fascists when they came to power hoping they would attack the Soviet bolshevism. After WWII America gave refuge to former Nazi, including those who had served in Gestapo and Abwehr, no matter what crimes they committed, because the US believed they were useful in their struggle against the main enemy – the Soviet Union. Then the United States decided that every bandit ready to fight the Soviet expansion and intervention in Afghanistan should be supported. That’s how Al-Qaeda was born. The same way the ISIS terrorist group appeared. In the name of democracy European countries and the United States pretend not to see the outright undemocratic and discriminatory attitude towards Russian minorities in the Baltic States. They turn a blind eye on the fact that fascism is being resurrected in Eastern Europe where those who fought side by side with Nazi are praised and made national heroes. For instance, Herberts Cukurs eliminated (probably by Israeli intelligence service Mossad) for his crimes is a national hero in Latvia, like Shukhevych and Bandera in Ukraine, says Yaakov Kedmi. 

The events in Ukraine are a classic example of bloody consequences entailed by the use of what was soft power at first – peaceful protests, the demands for freedom and honest government. In his State of the Union address Obama haughtily announces the victory of American "new thinking." He said, ", it is America that stands strong and united with our allies, while Russia is isolated, with its economy in tatters. That's how America leads - not with bluster, but with persistent, steady resolve." (4) According to Dimitri Simes, the president of the Center for the National Interest and publisher of the foreign policy journal the National Interest, the Obama administration contributed into aggravation of the crisis in Ukraine taking the side of protesters. He notes, "…essentially the United States and the European Union have decided to side with the protesters. Let me say, too, if they were using that kind of force and those techniques against a friendly government we would not call them protesters, we would call them rebels. We have sided with these protesters slash rebels." (5) According to Leonid Bershidsky, the Berlin-based Bloomberg View contributor, the Obama’s State of the Union address proves that Obama either does not understand how dangerous the exacerbation of the relations between the West and Moscow could be or jumps the gun to make the unachieved victory a feather in his head. "That's how America leads," Obama said proudly. It's more comforting to think he's faking that pride than to imagine he really doesn't understand how ineffective the U.S. has been in Ukraine. The president would have done better not to talk about Russia and Ukraine at all.

NBC Anchor Brian Williams Faces More Accusations, Calls For Resignation

Weeding out MSM lying, fraudulent, propagandising, war-mongering shills one corporate scumbag at a time as U.S. military Veterans call bullshit on bogus story   


One of the US’ most prominent TV anchors, Brian Williams, faced calls for his resignation on Friday for embellishing an Iraq war story from 2003.

BUSTED: Serial liar, fraud, corporate war
shill Brian Williams
Williams, 55, who reportedly earns US$10 million a year and is watched by an estimated 9 million US residents per episode, admitted that a story he had often repeated on air about coming under attack during a helicopter rise was not true.

“I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago,” Williams said in an apology broadcast live on Wednesday last week during the NBC Nightly News program that he hosts each evening. “I want to apologize. I said I was traveling in an aircraft that was hit by RPG fire. I was instead in a following aircraft.”

He apologized to colleagues again on Friday morning, according to a leaked memo purportedly from NBC News president Deborah Turness.

The memo said that NBC has appointed a team to investigate the facts and “help us make sense of all that has transpired.”

Next up for exposure: CNN's racist fraud, riot-inciter,
corporate pro-vaccinator, MSM shill; the pretty-boy 
Don Lemon
On Facebook, Williams said that he had “conflated” the two events, which happened while he was covering the US invasion of Iraq.

A hugely respected journalist in the US, he has anchored NBC Nightly News since 2004.

A former chief White House correspondent, Williams was celebrated for his coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and has collected more than two dozen industry awards.

The false tale dates back at least to an interview with US chat show king David Letterman in 2013.

At the time of the incident in 2003, Williams said that it was the Chinook ahead that was “almost blown out of the sky.”

Fox "News" failed attorney, fraud, liar, corporate pro-vaccinator Megyn Kelly needs to have "relationship" with Obamaite shill, propagandist Jen Psaki explored and investigated

He repeated the story on television as recently as Jan. 30, in an elaborate tribute to a retired soldier who helped provide ground security for the grounded aircraft and crew.

However, crew members of the Chinook helicopter and Williams’ aircraft told Stars and Stripes, a US publication that covers the armed forces, that the anchor had been nowhere near the helicopter that was fired upon or other Chinooks in its formation.

He instead arrived later in a separate helicopter, which landed due to an oncoming sandstorm.

Two Cops Charged In Philly With Assault And Conspiracy After Beating Man And Lying About It

There will be a day of reckoning and it is fast coming; feral cops are hallucinating if they believe they stand a chance against MILLIONS of pissed-off military Veterans and citizens that will eventually be forced to take these situations into their own hands  


A federal grand jury has indicted two officers with the Philadelphia Police Department on seven counts each related to a 2013 incident in which the cops severely beat a man and then filed false charges against him.

Najee Rivera
District Attorney Seth Williams announced that the two officers, Kevin Robinson and Sean McKnight, have formally been charged with aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy, among other crimes, at a news conference on Thursday this week. 

The pair were indicted after a grand jury examined evidence related to the altercation that occurred nearly two years ago between the cops and victim Najee Rivera on the north side of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Both officers were suspended immediately upon announcement of the grand jury’s findings, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told the Associated Press, and will likely be terminated from the force.

Initially, the two officers claimed that Rivera had eluded a traffic stop and fled from authorities on the night of May 29, 2013 in their official filings. In their report, they wrote that when the cops caught up with him moments later, Rivera slammed Robinson into the brick wall of a building and then repeatedly elbowed the officer in the face, prompting McKnight to respond with force. 

Coward, feral pigs Kevin Robinson and Sean McKnight

Rivera sustained injuries during the ordeal that were significant enough for him to be sent to a local hospital with a fractured orbital bone and numerous lacerations to the head where he received stitches and staples, and immediately after he was transferred to a nearby police station and charged with aggravated assault and resisting arrest in accordance with the two cops’ account of the events.

Rivera’s girlfriend later acquired surveillance camera footage from the crime scene that tells a much different story – so much so, in fact, that the District Attorney’s Office withdrew the charges filed by Robinson and McKnight after the clip was reviewed and then forwarded the video to the grand jury that made this week’s decision.

Contrary to claims made by Robinson and McKnight, Williams said on Thursday, the grand jury believes both officers actually acted as the aggressors and had knocked Rivera off his scooter, then beat him so severely that a third cop who arrived on the scene shortly after said the victim appeared to have been shot.

“The video undermined every aspect of the officers’ account,” Williams said at Thursday’s press conference, according to Reuters. “None of it was true except for the blows inflicted on Najee Rivera.”

Indeed, a copy of the grand jury presentment first obtained by Philadelphia Magazine suggests that the individuals tasked with weighing potential charges against the two officers saw nothing of the sort described by law enforcement officials in 2013.

“Based upon the evidence presented before this Grand Jury, including but not limited to the testimony of Najee Rivera and Detective James Brooks as well as the video, we conclude that McKnight and Robinson knocked Rivera from his scooter and then repeatedly struck Rivera with a baton and fists causing bodily injury,” they wrote.

“Although he was moving around on the ground while being struck, he was not resisting the officers or engaging in any aggressive act,” the grand jury said of Rivera. “At no time during the incident did Rivera attempt to assault either officer.”

Explaining the jury’s findings this week, Williams offered a grim narrative of what he saw while watching the surveillance footage.

“In reality, Rivera didn’t just fall off his scooter as officers approached in their patrol car,” he said at the news conference, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Instead, one of them actually reached out of the window and clubbed Rivera in the head; the car bumped the scooter and Rivera fell to the ground.”

“Both officers then got out and immediately placed Rivera in their control. He never resisted, he never struck them, he never fought back, they just started hitting him,” Williams continued. “First, one held him against the wall, while the other beat him with a baton. Then they held him on the ground and beat him some more, with both fist and baton.”

“Even if he had been the devil himself, they could not have done what they did to him,” The Inquirerquoted Williams as having said.

Both cops have been charged in relation to the attack with one count each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. Additionally, the grand jury said it “reviewed all of the police paperwork submitted by McKnight and Robinson and concludes that the information in that paperwork was falsified,” thusly charging both with one count each of tampering with public records, filing false reports, obstruction administration of law and official oppression.

Coward, off-duty feral pig attacks, wrestles, slams woman into car after fender-bender in San Jose, California; any man, let alone a cop that lays a hand on any woman should be shot without trial

“It is painful, it is embarrassing,” Ramsey, the commissioner, told Reuters this week with regards to considering this case alongside other recent incidents that have raised questions about the Philly Police Department. “It does bring up a lot of issues you see across the country,” he said.

Thursday’s news came the same day that a judge in New York entertained oral arguments from attorneys who want the public to see the evidence that a separate grand jury reviewed last year before deciding not to charge a police officer there with the August 2014 death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man. 

The death of Garner and a similar incident a month earlier in which Darren Wilson fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, have raised concerns about the use of excessive force by law enforcement officers across the United States. Unlike those instances, though, the Philadelphia grand jury has decided that enough evidence exists to bring charges against McKnight, 30, and Robinson, 26.

Both officers have been on the receiving end of seven citizen complaints apiece since joining the force less than a decade ago, Kenneth Lipp wrote for the Philadelphia Declaration, and Rivera has reportedly also settled a civil suit with the city over the matter for $200,000.
