NOTES on CIA, PENTAGON, Ellsberg & Chomsky etc.
"But my contention here is that the US crimes in the same period (since 1945) have only been superficially recorded, let alone documented, let alone acknowledged, let alone recognised as crimes at all. I believe this must be addressed and that the truth has considerable bearing on where the world stands now. Although constrained, to a certain extent, by the existence of the Soviet Union, the United States’ actions throughout the world made it clear that it had concluded it had carte blanche to do what it liked.Direct invasion of a sovereign state has never in fact been America’s favoured method. In the main, it has preferred what it has described as ‘low intensity conflict’. Low intensity conflict means that thousands of people die but slower than if you dropped a bomb on them in one fell swoop. It means that you infect the heart of the country, that you establish a malignant growth and watch the gangrene bloom. When the populace has been subdued – or beaten to death – the same thing – and your own friends, the military and the great corporations, sit comfortably in power, you go before the camera and say that democracy has prevailed. This was a commonplace in US foreign policy in the years to which I refer." - Harold Pinter, Nobel Prize Speech, 2005
Trump to use Obama's nuclear arms - or is it fear as terror?
Recently we could read in a Washington Post headline: 'Trump to tell Russia U.S. is pulling out of nuclear forces treaty'. The article had this Orwellian double speak explanation: “President Reagan concluded this treaty to reduce the risk of war in Europe,” Mr. Engel said. “We owe it to our allies and to the American people to do everything we can to bring Russia back into compliance and preserve peace." Link
I can't believe this nuclear prospect myself. So, what to think? My logic tells me that the US will begin using 'practical nuclear arms'. But, alternatively, this move together wih the general military mobilizing is also a way to get a more firm control of the Western states, the 'danger level' will be used to crush dissent, critical information and suppress people by fear.
In fact, we get both consequences. The still more acute risk of a nuclear war in Europe is in itself a terrible weapon of terror against the European and the Russian people. Political parties and citizens need to protest and stop this insane move by the US.
The US already has a great tradition of using terrible arms. From Agent Orange in Vietnam to using depleted uranium in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria etc., which have had cancer rates skyrocketing in these nations. The radiation's "half time" is 4.5 billion years. Chances are, given the Western media's suppressing all info that might hurt the corporate powers and the military, that you have not even heard about this.
Now let's think a bit about 'real' nuclear bombs. People who have followed me on Facebook, on my old account, will remember that I predicted that ('Ex-CIA') Ellsberg's new book was meant to "normalize", that the US would begin to use the 'practical nuclear' arms that Obama signed a trillion dollar contract to develop: https://www.nytimes.com/…/a-trillion-dollar-nuclear-weapon-…
Again, I have to ask, is it for real, to 'normalize' nuclear bombs. Or is it to scare people. The difficulty here is, that Ellsberg is considered a hero, and 'normalizing' nuclear arms is so insane, that people cannot think it as real, that it might 'materialize'. But please look at the nations which the US/Europe have destroyed. From WW2 bombing of Dresden and nuclear bombs on Hiroshima, Nagasaki to Clinton's Yugoslavia, the destruction of Iraq, Libya, Syria - there are no limits to the Western oligarchs' cynicism.
Obama didn't apologize in Hiroshima a couple of years ago for US nuclear bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (which historians say were completely unnessecary, as Japan was about to surrender). Instead Obama made one of the clinical chilling statements, which the US politicians and bureaucrats for Pentagon are so good at: "Obama will not apologize for Hiroshima attack, he tells Japanese TV. President says he will highlight blossoming of a close relationship between US and Japan, but ‘every leader makes difficult decisions, particularly during war’." https://www.theguardian.com/…/obama-japan-hiroshima-intervi…
Let me remind you that the US secretary of state Madeleine Albright said that she thought that 'it was worth it', that the US had ordered sanctions on Iraq, which cost more than of 500,000 dead Iraqi children under the age of 5 years in the 1990'ties. To the best of my knowledge these sanctions had no effect - besides the killing of people in Iraq. And it was worth it. This is a form of unmatched cynicism. But it is typical of the US politicians and diplomats. Remember Harold Pinter's recollection of his meeting with the US Ambassador in London with a delegation from Nicaragua?
In Hiroshima, Obama gave another of his excellent double-plus-good-speeches, saying that we should have a world free of nuclear weapons (yes, after signing a trillion dollars contract to make them), and that nuclear use can be a necessity. 'Obama in Hiroshima calls for 'world without nuclear weapons'.' 2016, CNN: https://edition.cnn.com/…/…/obama-hiroshima-japan/index.html
ELLSBERG and CHOMSKY as CONTROLLED OPPOSITION
The most important CIA researcher Doug Valentine has explained, why we should neither trust Ellsberg nor (his brother in intellectual arms) Noam Chomsky. They were together in the 70'ties and they are together today, telling people what to think - and not think (Chomsky is strong controller of the Bush/Cheney official 9/11 conspiracy). Ellsberg covered up for CIA's horrendous 'Phoenix Program' of using terrorist proxies and paid quislings in Vietnam in the seventies, with his world famous and world reported 'Pentagon Papers'. Later Chomsky similarly covers up the 'Phoenix Program' (ISIS) in Syria. As Doug Valentine explains:
"Left paterfamilias Noam Chomsky, who generally shows an appreciation for the subtleties of covert action, claimed that America is not supplying its Al Qaeda mercenary army with arms – even though Eric Schmidt at The New York Times reported over a year ago that CIA officers in Turkey were “helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arm.” https://www.counterpunch.org/…/the-cia-the-press-and-black…/
Now, as a Danish sociologist trying to figure out the reality of the Western wars, I have shared countless articles on Facebook about the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey etc. being behind, arming and training ISIS and Al Qaeda. So, why would Chomsky cover this up? In fact, Chomsky has been consistent in covering up CIA's role exactly like Ellsberg did. This is clear, if you compare his work and public explanations with the most important CIA researcher Doug Valentine
, where Doug has an explanation about the power of CIA as being much, much more powerful than Chomsky will ever let you think. I have done what I can to promote Doug's research, as I do here. But I bet that you will look in vain for Chomsky's promotion of Doug's research. Why?
Here Doug Explains something about the likewise famous Daniel Ellsberg:
"The first thing the reader needs to know is that Ellsberg was not always a pacifist “dove” intent on ending the Vietnam War. At first he was an aggressive “hawk.” His militant approach to the Cold War ? he was all for nuking the Soviet Union ? was shaped during a tour of duty as a Marine lieutenant, and precisely because of his hard-line attitude, and his ability to articulate it, he was offered a job as a Defense Department analyst." https://www.counterpunch.org/…/will-the-real-daniel-ellsbe…/
Here we have a promotion piece on Ellsberg and Chomsky from the seventies till today - yes, it is 'historical' all right:
"The fact that Noam and Dan share a history related to the Pentagon Papers will certainly add a historical significance to the event.”
Ellsberg first sent the Pentagon Papers to Chomsky, who, along with Howard Zinn, prepared a fifth volume of the Papers consisting of critical essays by many scholars. Chomsky also defended Ellsberg’s role in releasing the Pentagon Papers (video here.)" https://sbs.arizona.edu/…/daniel-ellsberg-and-noam-chomsky-…
Problems with the Western information: it's a matrix
Now, as should be clear from the Washington Post article here, Trump to tell Russia U.S. is pulling out of nuclear forces treaty, we should have no illusions about Trump being a different president than Obama, Bush and Bill Clinton. The American presidents are not in control. The Council of Foreign Relations and the CIA tell the American president what will happen next. If you go to YouTube you might find videos with Hillary Clinton saying that it is nice to visit the CFR to have explained what to think. Doug Valentine says that the US president and congress are not even allowed to see the original CIA memes, if I remember Doug's exact words. While the famous advisor to John F. Kennedy, John K. Galbraith explained this about the CFR:
"Those of us who had worked for the Kennedy election were tolerated in the government for that reason and had a say, but foreign policy was still with the Council on Foreign Relations people.”
Yes, John F. Kennedy tried to get rid of the CIA. And this caused his death. Noam Chomsky and so many other 'academics' have worked hard to put dirt on Kennedy's real politics and legacy. I have collected some interesting information on the subject here, where it is probably enough that you watch Dr. Wecht's lecture on the top to know, that the murder of JFK was covered up from day one. https://homosociologicus.com/the-murder-of-jfk
It seems that Trump have ideological differences with the Democrats, but he is a member of the American oligarchs, and even if he wanted, he is hardly allowed to do much against the power relations of the US establishment. But it is important for me to say that I have not paid enough attention to Trump to be able to figure this out. I suggest that you look to analysts like Glen Ford at BAR and Diana Johnstone etc.
What keeps people in the greatest ignorance, is, what the Scandinavian peace researcher Jan Oberg calls the 'Military Industrial Media Academic Complex'. https://janoberg.me/…/military-industrial-media-academic-c…/ Here is a quote from Prof. Alfred McCoy's latest book, which is on my page on the Western propaganda apparatus:
"In 2010 (..) Washington Post reported that the national security state had swelled into a “fourth branch” of the federal government ― with 854,000 vetted officials, 263 security organizations, and over 3,000 intelligence units, issuing 50,000 special reports every year." https://truthout.org/…/exploring-the-shadows-of-the-us-sec…/ -- Professor Alfred McCoy, 2017 Here is the link to my page: https://homosociologicus.com/corporate-media-taboos
People have no idea about the size and power of the matrix, which is behind the Western state and media information. All Western politicians use this 'information'. And especially the academic world trust people like Chomsky and Ellsberg to be the most important critical thinkers on such subjects. But please let me know why Chomsky and Ellsberg (nor Seymour Hersh) never promotes Doug Valentine's crucial research on the CIA?
Doug Valentine comes to the same research conclusions and promotes prof Alfred McCoy's research (both have fathers with military careers, which inspired them to their critical research on the truth about the US military).
You migth ask, 'what's the difference' between us knowing that we can't trust people like Chomsky and Ellsberg, if it all points to war anyway?' I will say that the difference is, that you know that the whole Western public sphere (inclusive the academics) are playing you.
Everybody knows that the corporate media betray the Western peoples. The Americans are much more aware than the Europeans. But what is most regularly left out of the explanation about the US wars, is that all the people allowed to speak in the Western public spheres are lying for the US. The corporate media would immediately be held to account, if academics and politicians did not share the same lies, but actually told some truth and had some integrity. There are exceptions to this terrible rule, like when the French government said No to joining the destruction of Iraq. But generally the Western states share the US lies, which legitimizes both the US nation destructions and the other Western nations joining them.
So, the Western peoples to a great extent have no idea how much they are being lied by the academics and politicians, which they listen to and have listened to since 1945. Here is Harold Pinter explaining the problem:
"Political language, as used by politicians, does not venture into any of this territory since the majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.
As every single person here knows, the justification for the invasion of Iraq was that Saddam Hussein possessed a highly dangerous body of weapons of mass destruction, some of which could be fired in 45 minutes, bringing about appalling devastation. We were assured that was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq had a relationship with Al Quaeda and shared responsibility for the atrocity in New York of September 11th 2001. We were assured that this was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq threatened the security of the world. We were assured it was true. It was not true.
The truth is something entirely different. The truth is to do with how the United States understands its role in the world and how it chooses to embody it."
This means, that if we shall be able to challenge this tradition, it can only be done by radically challenging the establishment versions. This is the only way, we can hope to know a bit about reality - and be able to fight it. I made my site in the hope that people would use it to educate themselves so as to be able to stand up against their politicians's lies.
Once more, Chomsky and others never tell you, what Harold Pinter told you in his excellent Nobel Prize Speech, namely that all Western governments have had a strong tradition for always sharing and covering up lies for the US' wars (since 1945).
The problem with all these lies may not affect Western people much, when it comes to wars in Iraq, Libya and Syria etc. But now they are lying about Russia and China, and that can mean a war in Europe and on a world scale. Besides, the history of US wars shows us clearly that all information is usually false. Just look at my home page. I have collected information on most of the wars to be able to show exactly this.
CIA and Pentagon People in the Democratic Party
People will remember and can go back and find Chomsky's support for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party in general - I think it has been consistent for decades. Here is some information from March 2018 on the CIA and Pentagon people in the Democratic Party:
"In a three-part series published last week, the World Socialist Web Site documented an unprecedented influx of intelligence and military operatives into the Democratic Party. More than 50 such military-intelligence candidates are seeking the Democratic nomination in the 102 districts identified by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as its targets for 2018. These include both vacant seats and those with Republican incumbents considered vulnerable in the event of a significant swing to the Democrats.
If on November 6 the Democratic Party makes the net gain of 24 seats needed to win control of the House of Representatives, former CIA agents, military commanders, and State Department officials will provide the margin of victory and hold the balance of power in Congress. The presence of so many representatives of the military-intelligence apparatus in the legislature is a situation without precedent in the history of the United States.
Since its establishment in 1947—under the administration of Democratic President Harry Truman—the CIA has been legally barred from carrying out within the United States the activities which were its mission overseas: spying, infiltration, political provocation, assassination. These prohibitions were given official lip service but ignored in practice."
Here is the WSWS with an update in September 2018:
"With the end the primary season, the Democratic Party leadership and their allies in the national security apparatus have completed the first stage of what might be termed a “friendly takeover” of the Democrats by candidates recruited from among military, CIA and civilian national security cadres. (...)
"Of the 44 districts we identified in March—since grown to 46—military-intelligence candidates have won 30 nominations, a success rate of about 66 percent or two-thirds. That testifies to their extensive support from the Democratic Party leadership, from longtime financial backers of the Democrats, and from the top levels of the national security establishment.
There are 115 districts rated as competitive by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) or by groups specializing in the district-by-district analysis of congressional races. The 30 military-intelligence candidates account for more than one quarter of the Democratic candidates in these districts, making them the largest single group, ahead of state and local politicians (26), lawyers (20), millionaires (15), other professionals (8), former Obama aides (3) and miscellaneous (13)." https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/09/21/ciad-s21.html
This probably point to more wars to come. It is certainly a dangerous development for the peoples of the world. Not least in Europe and Russia.
As always, it is not the peoples who want war. Wars are created for money, as already Plato knew. But the problem is that Western peoples generally have no idea, that the Western governments have lied to them about the US wars since 1945. And unless they begin to realize this, there will be little resistance, if (before) the US and EU begin waging a real war with Russia and/or China.
NB. HELP SAVE MY CRITICAL INFORMATION
Before I will have to begin deleting some of it, because of the new Danish "Anti-NATO law, which can give up to 12 years imprisonment.
Please notice that the Danish government is working on a law proposal, which will make any NATO critical information problematic if not criminal. Peace researchers etc. will have to censor themselves to avoid the risk of jail. The law proposal says that you can get a 12 years imprisonment for sharing information, which 'You ought to have known, came from a foreign intel source.' Now, this is rather impossible to know in many cases. So, if Danes want to be sure not to risk jails, we have to censor ourselves to Western sources or similar. I think. This also applies to me. I will have to censor the content on my home page on all the former wars etc.
Please, help us preserve the knowledge and information that I have collected by making people copy my pages, before I reduce the content. Here is one of my most critical pages. On the US/CIA/Western 'Phoenix Program': https://homosociologicus.com/western-nations-back-terrorists
As a 'by the way' the Danish politicians recently decided that Danish national TV are not to have 'longer' explanations on their web site. Like the one above. But this is of course just a 'postmodern' inspiration.
This was a post on my Facebook the other day.
Want a better world? Join Facebook :)
First I'll tell you why Facebook has made a historical breakthrough as to inform people about the CIA lies, which cover up the US-led wars on the world. Then I'll tell you why MMT (modern monetary theory) is the most important intellectual tool to break the ideological chains of the neoliberal ideology in politics and in the economic profession.
Thank you Facebook! Or, why FB tries to make people leave
We ARE winning :) It is a historical fact that Facebook and other social media have made people more aware of their media's lies and propaganda and about the dirty reality of CIA and the US terror-funded warfare - than they have ever been before. Moreover, there is no way going back. CIA and the Western establishments can never make all the informed people as ignorant as they were before. We know, what we know.
What's the historical difference? Today we KNOW what the CIA, MI6 and our media do. Before the social media many 'knew' about it and suspected much of it. But now we KNOW. This makes us informed people a real historic threat. And this explains why CIA/Suckerberg are in panic; why they WARN people about Facebook (via our media and politicians): "don't use FB; we monitor you and use your info etc."
Sure, CIA, Facebook corporate owners are worried about our info being used by them. Makes for pure nonsense 🤣
I would never have known anything, of what I know today, about the CIA, MI6, our media and the Western etablissments' lies etc. without my extremely knowledgeable FB network and all the independent sources from around the world. My Facebook University as I usually calls it. Foremost learning from Luciana Bohne, Doug Valentine, Mark Crispin Miller, Jacques Pauwels, Margaret Kimberley, Tim Anderson, Vanessa Beeley, Pål Steigan, Michael Jabara Carley and many more.
If you would like to see a condenced version of the fact that the US has lied and the Western establishments cover up for their lies since 1945, I suggest that you watch Harold Pinter's Nobel Prize Lecture from 2005
. BBC did not bring it. But here Pinter confirms everything that we can learn from the critical literature on US wars, CIA's dirty way of always using terrorist proxies and have quislings from the targeted nations betray their own country. Take Syria for instance, practically all Syrian presented in the Western media the past seven years are anti-Assad, while 90% or more of the Syrian population are behind Assad in reality. Pinter's words support all my nation pages, where it can be seen how the US undermines and destroys democratic rule for the people, so that the corporate masters of our universe can put in dictators that will let our cynical oligarchs plunder the peoples' resources.
I learned more about our deeply corrupted (structured) reality in my FB university than in my eight years of dedicated university studies in sociology. But... I was also very lucky to get probably the best FB network in the world. Look at Luciana Bohne's writings on Counterpunch; Mark Crispin Miller books on US politics and media propaganda; Jacques Pauwels' history books; Vanessa Beeley and Tim Anderson on Syria vs. Western propaganda; the international lawyer Christopher C. Black; the British university rektor and ambassador (who witnessed CIA torture in Uzbekistan), going whistleblower Craig Murray and last but absolutely not least Doug Valentine's CIA research. Finally, I should not forget to mention the support from many of my friends there, not least my most precious Heather Cottin (widow after the amazing Sean Gervasi, JFK advisor and much more). But of course I have also learned so much from many, many other incredibly knowledgeable FB friends and other people on FB. There is simply no way, I (we) could have made such a radical truth seeking network, if we had not had Facebook.
All this learning inspired me to make my home page HomoSociologicus.com, where I have shared as much as I have been able to - working more than ten hours daily the past few years with practically no income. Because... I find it important that other people should know reality. I love people and I have children. We are destroying our civilization at the moment.
You know, the only two persons I have seen saying exactly this (about destroying our civilisation) are the great French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu in a speech to French strikers in the nineties and Warren Mosler a few years ago.
MMT can save us and make our future bright
Next we come to my most positive learning experience via Facebook, which was learning about MMT 'modern monetary theory'. It complete blew my mind! Like nothing I have ever learnt before. I went from pessimist to optimist about our future in a few days as I realized the implications of MMT. At that time I have been studying Pierre Bourdieu's sociology for twenty years, so it was incredible to learn that MMT had the most powerful answer as to how ce can take back the control of our economy and finances and make decent societies for our children.
I am convinced that Warren Mosler has given the Western world the most important economic intellectual tools to liberate us from neoliberalism. So, I was instrumental in having his book The Seven Deadly Innocent Frauds of Economic Policy translated to Danish. And it was the most intellectually stimulating days of my life, when I was travelling with Warren in Denmark to three universities to tell the economic students that eveything that they have taught in the Western economic profession the past forty years was false. I consider Warren Mosler a genius comparable to almost no other scientists in the world today. Pierre Bourdieu is the only one I can think of with such a sharp intellect. I often say that economic history will be written (in the future): Marx, Keynes, Mosler.
We will see. It depends on our collective actions. But you should certainly realize that the corporate powers will do anything to cheer up your feeling of powerlessness and despair. Don't listen. The Syrian narrative is falling apart within the Western states - as I write these lines. And if more engaged in this, it could really make a historial media scandal. People are realizing more and more about our reality every day. And your spreading the words will make a difference. As to MMT, we have hundreds of thousands of engaged people, so it's just a matter of jumping in, learn and spread the word: all governments with their own currency have the money they want for welfare, infrastructure, education, culture etc. At the moment people only learn that Western states by necessity only have the money they want for the private banks and the military.
Didn't you suspect a heavy logical problem in this? Your despair is a product of their lies: we've never been richer or more productive. And robots? They'll only add to our collective richness. As Mosler explained in Denmark, robots are nothing new. Machines were introduced into agriculture and set 95% of the workers free to produce all the things, which add to people's welfare. The basic problem today is about sharing the richness. Another acute problem which MMT explain to us, is, that our neoliberal governments have taken way to much money out of our economies, so that people can hardly live, much less invest and buy enough to keep everybody happy with a job and the prospect of a future for their children. It really is easy. Learn MMT and get rid of our neoliberal establishment lackeys. It will be necessary for many of us to join politics. We can't leave Corbyn alone with the job - and Corbyn doesn't even know MMT. Much less his advisors!!
I am for honesty. So I am not done with Mosler yet. You should know that he is very rich, but that he went to Denmark on his own expences and spent a little week here only to give the Danish people the opportunity to take MMT seriously as a way to liberate Danish political from neoliberal dogmas (of course the economic profession generally boycotted listening to him here). At the moment he is trying to enter politics, not to become famous, but to help the people, where he lives (Virgin Islands).
Mosler is the man who taught the professors around the world how money and finance work. Even though they most often don't mention him and many probably don't even though that he came with the ideas to understand how our economic fiat money reality works. Mosler taught the most important economist Bill Mitchell, who paid attention from the beginning and in 2017 Mitchell and Thomas Fazi, published the most important book on how neoliberalism got away with taking over European politics and how to win back our national politics for the people. Also don't miss Fazi's and Mitchell's other books! Learn MMT on my resource page on MMT here. Listen to Mosler and Mitchell in their videos a bit down.

Here is my page get out of the corporate cave on CIA's Phoenix program: https://homosociologicus.com/western-nations-back-terrorists
Here is my page on the true history of WW2 and after, where the US hired all the worst nazis, who entered the US intel agencies and went on contributing to the US nazi-like nation destructions, we have seen since around the world. We need to stop this insane corporate machine: https://homosociologicus.com/history-of-20-21-century
Getting this history right is crucial to fight the (same) corporate powers today, which were behind Hitler. Here are two quotes from the page;
'The US prosecution during the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals made clear that neither the rise of the Nazis, nor WWII nor the holocaust would have been possible without the financial and logistical support of IG Farben. Today, more than six decades since the end of WWII, mankind has yet to solve one of the greatest riddles: How come that none of the international organizations that set out to preserve the memory of this war and the holocaust has not pointed their fingers at these historic facts?' Profit over Life
'After 60 years where students and teachers alike have been deprived of any information about the corporate background of WWII, it is time that the textbooks of history, as well as political and social sciences, are re-written.'

9/11 Beginners 101 - January 2018
Terrorism has replaced Communism as the rationale for the militarization of America, for military adventures abroad, and for the suppression of civil liberties at home. It serves the same purpose, serving to create hysteria.” -- Howard Zinn
"Whoever is responsible for bringing to grisly fruition this new false-flag operation, which has been used to justify the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as unprecedented assaults on research, education, and civil liberties, must be perversely proud of their efficient handiwork. -- Lynn Margulis
"Even though Dr. Lynn Margulis was best known for her breakthroughs in science, perhaps her greatest contribution was her public support for a real 9/11 investigation." Dr. David Ray Griffin
#Tower7Explosions #WittnessessAndExperts (die) #NISTLied #AssangeNotInterested
Physics and Insurance Companies don't buy the Official Version
"Given the fact that before September 11, 2001 no high-rise steel-frame building has ever collapsed from fire alone (Taylor, 2011), extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. The NIST Reports did not address the total collapse of the Twin Towers, truncating their study at “collapse initiation.” Overall, our peer-reviewed literature results collectively yield a very strong prima facie argument for controlled demolition."
"If it is true that steel-frame buildings can collapse from fire alone, it is crucial for owners of existing structures and insurers to understand the risk of a sudden fire-induced collapse so that structural repairs and risk adjustments can be factored in. Given the official story, it is remarkable how little insurance premiums, or even design parameters and building construction codes, have been modified (if at all) to address the possibility of catastrophic fire-induced progressive collapse. The fact that they have not been modified indicates that insurance companies do not accept the PC hypothesis."
Demolition Experts knew from day one it was controlled demolitions
You want to listen and know this: "Tom Sullivan - Former Explosives Loader for Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) [World's leading demolition company] Tom discusses the complex process of preparing a building for controlled demolition and sites the reasons why WTC building 7 had to have been a controlled demolition." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5IgqJXyLbg
As certain was this expert: "Danny Jowenko was a Dutch expert in controlled demolition who testified that WTC7 collapse ould only be due to controlled demolition." Wikispooks
12.000 Pages Testimony about 'Explosions' on 9/11 - suppressed
The Official NIST Report Lied (one example)
Professor in Religion Studies, David Ray Griffin writes:
"NIST’s timeline is also directly contradicted by the testimony of Jennings, who said: “After getting to the 8th floor everything was dark . . . . [B]oth buildings were still standing. Because I looked . . . one way, looked the other way. . . . [B]oth buildings were still standing.”8
The strongest evidence against NIST’s timeline, however, is Hess’s interview with UPN 9 News. Defenders of the official account, according to which there were no explosions in WTC 7, might challenge the truth of Jennings’s testimony. But if Hess was giving an interview almost a half mile away before noon, then NIST’s timeline, according to which the two men were not rescued until after noon, is objectively disproved. This is the case whether we accept the 11:34 or the 11:57 starting time for this interview.
Given the fact that the interview occurred almost a half mile from the WTC, it would probably have taken Hess at least a half hour to get there after he was rescued (he surely would have talked to firefighters and other officials about the ordeal before taking off). So if the interview began at 11:34, he and Jennings would have been rescued before 11:05. If the interview began at 11:57, they would have been rescued before 11:30." http://911truth.org/nist-lied-barry-jennings-michael-hess-…/
Barry Jennings' Important Testimony on WT7 - Two Interviews
Barry Jennings was not interviewed for the NIST investigations until a few YEARS after 9/11. He was later threatened and tried to retract his testimonies. Then, finally he died(was killed under mysterious circumstances a couple of days before the NIST report was published.
"Barry Jennings was an important eyewitness to the events of 9/11. At the time, he was the Deputy Director of the Emergency Services Department for the New York City Housing Authority. Together with Michael Hess, the New York City Corporation Counsel (an associate of Rudy Giuliani), he was rescued from WTC Building 7 before it collapsed at 5:20 p.m. On several occasions, Jennings stated that an explosion trapped them in WTC Building 7 (before the collapses of WTC 1 & 2) and that explosions occurred throughout the building until they were saved after attracting the attention of a team of firefighters through a broken 8th floor window. Jennings reportedly died in 2008, in highly suspicious circumstances." Wikispooks
(a site made becauce we cannot trust Wikipedia - just check what the two sites writes about Jennings, for example)
Assange not interested in 9/11, nor 'Explosions', nor Jennings

Jennings story is such an amazing indictment of corporate media: Summary of Case
On August 19, 2008, 53 year old Barry Jennings died, two days before the release of the NIST Final Report on the collapse of WTC7. Jennings was Deputy Director of Emergency Services Department for the New York City Housing Authority. On September 11th, 2001, he saw and heard explosions BEFORE the Twin Towers fell, while attempting to evacuate the WTC 7 Command Center with NYC Corporation Counsel Michael Hess. Jennings publicly shared his experiences with a reporter on the day of 9/11/01, as well as in a lengthy 2007 video interview with Dylan Avery, a small clip of which was then released; subsequently his job was threatened and he asked that the taped interview not be included in Loose Change Final Cut..
However, after an interview with Jennings was broadcast by the BBC in their program The Third Tower ostensibly refuting what he had previously stated to Avery, Avery felt compelled to release the full original video interview to show the distortions made by the BBC. The cause of Jennings' death has not been made public, and a private investigator hired by Avery to discover the cause and circumstances surrounding his death refused to proceed with the investigation. In spite of the significance of Jennings' position with NYC on 9/11 and his controversial eyewitness testimony regarding the collapse of WTC7, the media has not investigated or reported on his death, nor reported on his statements." https://www.quora.com/What-9-11-secrets-were-revealed-by-WikiLeaks

Prism: Charles Wright Mills Review of 'Behemoth' (1942)
Franz Neumann's analysis of the German nazi society Behemoth 1933-1944 is no doubt one of the most advanced prisms to help us understand our neoliberal situation today.
Once more everything seems to be or is actually turned on its head. And our public 'intellectuals' cover up truth instead of telling it. In the public we only have 'intellectuals' working for the neoliberal war-locomotive. In short, we have "Behemoth" once more:
"the Nazi organization of society involved the collapse of traditional ideas of the state, of ideology, of law, and even of any underlying rationality."
“Hardly any other ideological element is held in such profound contempt in our civilization as international law. Every generation has seen it break down as an instrument for organizing peace, and a theory that disposes of its universalist claims has the obvious advantage of appearing to be realistic. The fallacy should be equally obvious, however. To abandon universalism because of its failures is like rejecting civil rights because they help legitimize and veil class exploitation, or democracy because it conceals boss control, or Christianity because churches have corrupted Christian morals. Faced with a corrupt administration of justice, the reasonable person does not demand a return to the war of each against all, but fights for an honest system. Likewise, when we have shown that international law has been misused for imperialistic aims, our task has begun, not ended. We must fight against imperialism.” —Franz Neumann, Behemoth: The Structure and Practice of National Socialism 1933-1944
Excerpts from Charles Wright Mills' review of Behemoth below (1942):
"The analysis of Behemoth casts light upon capitalism in democracies. To the most important task of political analysis Neumann has contributed: if you read his book thoroughly, you see the harsh outlines of possible futures close around you. With leftwing thought confused and split and dribbling trivialities, he locates the enemy with a 500 watt glare. And Nazi is only one of his names."
"One of the generic errors of those who do not see the German economy as capitalistic is Marx’s view that capitalism is an anarchy of production. Of course, as Max Weber contended, modern Western capitalism is nothing of the sort. It is rationalized and planned. The more monopolization continues, the more capitalism is controlled and planned."
"These are the rulers and the rest are the ruled, but these form at times an uneasy front, and the ruled may well be watching carefully. From these four angles, interests, anchored in the entire social structure but especially in violence and production, coalesce into the central aim: continual preparation and maintenance of imperialist war. To grasp this clearly is to see the structure of the regime as a total thing, called Behemoth.
War gives National Socialism not only glory but a stabilization of its power; to industry it gives profits, conquers foreign markets and accumulates booty capital. Neumann sees the bureaucracy, relatively unchanged by the Nazi conquest of power, marching with the victorious."
"Ideologies and social structure are seen conjointly, which is the only way to see either in accurate and telling focus. For in some situations nothing that is said can be taken at its face value, and it is more important to know meanings than to test for truth. Indeed, the way to political reality is through ideological analysis. This is the way that Neumann has taken, and this is why his account of Nazi ideology is at times definitive and always interesting. His account of the blending of geopolitics and international law to form a “Germanic Monroe Doctrine” is a model for such analysis."
"Ideas are political cloaks. The ideology of Gemeinschaft, e.g., masks the impersonality of a rationalized society."
"...anti-Semitism operates as a surrogate for class struggle by heaping hatred upon one “enemy”; in the same act it seeks to “unify” the Aryan community. The manner in which Nazi doctrine is shaped by the need to ensnare various strata is neatly illustrated by its inclusion of perverted Marxist elements."
"In a similar contradiction Neumann shows that as the political power of the state has increased, the doctrine of the totalitarian state has been rejected by Nazi intellectuals."
"Not only does acceptance or rejection of Neumann’s analysis set the type of understanding we have of Germany, it sets our attitude toward given elements in other countries, sights the act of our allegiance, places limits upon our political aspirations: helps us locate the enemy all over the world. That is why Franz Neumann’s book is not only the most important to appear about Germany; it is a live contribution to all leftwing thinking today. His book will move all of us into deper levels of analysis and stragegy. It had better. Behemoth is everywhere united."
Comparing Nazi & Neoliberal Reality
Book excerpts from Nazi Era to Enlighten today's Neoliberalism
The People As Enemy: The Leaders' Hidden Agenda in World War II, 2013, J Spritzler:
"There is the official view of World War II—the one we have all been taught—then, there is the one presented here: very different, and very disturbing. This alternative view argues that the aims of the national leaders were not democracy and self-determination, but were, as wars generally are, opportunities to suppress class rebellion. Furthermore, Spritzler maintains, the myths of World War II are the same myths that are being used today in the "war against terrorism" by government and corporate leaders to control people and pursue ends that have nothing to do with protecting us from terrorism."
They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45, M. Mayer [excerpt]
“What happened here [Germany then] was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.”--from Chapter 13, “But Then It Was Too Late”. Amazon
Behemoth: Structure and Practice of National Socialism, 1933-1944
"Neumann was one of the only early Frankfurt School thinkers to examine seriously the problem of political institutions.() the Nazi organization of society involved the collapse of traditional ideas of the state, of ideology, of law, and even of any underlying rationality."
War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race, 2012, E Black:
"War Against the Weak is the gripping chronicle documenting how American corporate philanthropies launched a national campaign of ethnic cleansing in the United States, helped found and fund the Nazi eugenics of Hitler and Mengele — and then created the modern movement of "human genetics." Some 60,000 Americans were sterilized under laws in 27 states."
A One-And-A-Half-Truth for Pinter and Pilger
"...across the world the extinction and suffering of countless human beings could be attributed to rampant American power. "But," said Pinter, "You wouldn't know it. It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest." Pinter's words were more than surreal. The BBC ignored the speech of Britain's most famous dramatist." - John Pilger
“BBC, in short, ensured that the British and other peoples did not know about the most crucially important speech about the Western states' war crimes since 1945 (see the list on left bottom). In Pinter's own words: "You wouldn't know it. It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest." - Homo Sociologicus
The Sociological Question: which sociological mechanisms may explain Pinter's observation on the Western states' neglience of its consecutive state war crimes on a Nuremberg scale. From Korea & Vietnam to Yugoslavia, Libya & Syria etc.?
The Answer: corporate power relations control the Western political systems to a still larger extent. Not least on ‘foreign policy’. The states' intel agencies are generally corporate tools. They control the most important media, while hired academics at the universities and especially 'think tanks' write the demanded 'non-fiction' & 'analysis reports' to tell the media and the academic world, what to think. Basically, all (the rest) Western academics take the propaganda 'non-fiction' literature and 'analyses' seriously as if it had any resemblance to truth, while the media simply use and peddle the ‘well-established’ information as if it was sincerely researched information. You will probably only have to watch this one minute video expose of the US 17 'intel agencies' to see a vital glimpse of the the truth and have your trust in the official sourced changed radically. But you wouldn't know, it never happened etc., if you trust the BBC and other (state or corporate) Establishment media.
It is important to realize the incredible size of the US' so-called 'security complex': "In 2010 (..) Washington Post reported that the national security state had swelled into a “fourth branch” of the federal government ― with 854,000 vetted officials, 263 security organizations, and over 3,000 intelligence units, issuing 50,000 special reports every year." Exploring the Shadows of the US Security State: How I Learned Not to Love Big Brother, August 24, 2017, By Alfred McCoy
Bill Clinton de-regulated the US media laws in the 1990ties thereby opening up for almost total corporate media control. Today six companies owe the right to tell 90% of all American media employees, what to tell the people and how. The European politicians, academics and journalists simply have to accept the information given to submise and enlargen the US (deep) state's control to Europe. This, they do. The added corporate control of the media also helped change the political development even further to the right. This has also made it easy for both national state and corporate media to more systematically employ right wing sympathetic journalists, who will not pose critical questions but will applaud the corporate sources and its neoliberal scripts for ideological reasons. In Denmark, for instance, we often see former right wing spin doctors portray as political analysts on national tv. And the once most trusted program is today also regularly hosted by a former right wing spindoctor.
The late German editor of the Frankfurter Allegemeiner Zeitung, Udo Ulfkotte, published a book a few years ago, where he confessed to twenty five years of working for the CIA telling stories they wanted or gave him. Again, this should come as no surprise if you know even a bit about the CIA's history of infiltration in Western states. But of course, you wouldn't know it... The CIA and MI6 and other 'intel agencies' influence all over the media to have their (corporate masters') agendas represented as they want. The former US war hero and Pentagon employee Richard Ford has stated that the 'Syrian Laboratory for Human Rights', you know, the man in Coventry Link, who has supplied Western media with information on Syria the past years - is simply a MI6 front.
The CIA and other Western intel agencies hire and pay thousands of analysts and journalists to write the 'news'. No less problematic, from a democratic and anti-war perspective, is the apparatus' ability to pay big money to PR companies and hire thousands of people to smear and work against critical academics and journalists both under cover in the public and on the social media. A single PR company was paid $500 million dollars to do propaganda for the war on Iraq: "A former contractor for a UK-based public relations firm says that the Pentagon paid more than half a billion dollars for the production and dissemination of fake Al-Qaeda videos that portrayed the insurgent group in a negative light." 2016, The Independent LINK
This article can be considered critical important information. But such critical information always come too late, with the goal of backing up the media's own credibility so as to able to be function as effective tools for the next big lie and propaganda project. The only thing we can know for sure about the establishment media is that they will never tell the most important truths about their way of doing journalism for the corporate agenda. Just as they will never tell the truth that NATO has employed jihadist mercenaries for the past forty years, where media such as the BBC and the Independent still systematically suppress the truth and help lie for more of the corporate empire's wars. Link
The corporate powers even get useful idiots volunteering to support the apparatus, when for instance sincere 'critical' academics, lacking the skills to understand it all, voluntarily suppress themselves and everybody else, when they go out to defend the established media and write ridiculing texts about 'conspiracy theorists’.
This chaotic 'behemoth' public sphere, where nobody knows who and what to trust, is a great achivement. The politicians are never put to account. Everybody in the public sphere 'work together', from covert and overt hired hands to cunning intel agents, sincere and insincere politicians, academics and journalists, indistinguishable from each other, they simply present the peoples with a more or less uniform but mostly completely false information. This way, critical thinking and the truth on all subjects is systematically suppressed. This way, the Western peoples are presented with a most biased and often completely false corporate ordered information about reality. This way, we have gained a still more ‘totalitarian’ Western public sphere. This way, we can now more than ever appreciate the warning by the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, who said that the concerted assault on critical thought in the eighties and nineties is a great danger for our democracies.
The Evidence: the apparatus is as extremely powerful as it is dangerous. The information is so clearly false, when compared to the information available on the alternative media. But It is easy to understand if most people cannot imagine the description above to be the truth and prefer to think that the Western academics are trustworty, and that the media produce journalism.
But... there is an insurmountable logical problem, for the apparatus and all its implicated cunning-intel-hired-hands-and-non-critical-minded-useful-idiots-academics-journalists-and-neoliberal-politicians. That is, if one thinks about it. For the apparatus’ very success and still greater success in mobilizing the Western peoples to applaud consecutive state war crimes on a Nuremberg scale (destroying nation after nation with still less noteworthy academic, political and journalistic opposition and critique) is simply the greatest possible evidence of its totalitarian nature. When we apply critical historical knowledge on the former wars, what we know today, and confront it with the uniformly presented information given to us up to and under the wars, it is obvious that the Western public spheres have functioned as one big totalitarian apparatus.
To mention just one example. Today we know, and the British Parliament has acknowledged it as a fact, that basically all information leading up to and under the NATO war on Libya was false. We also remember - or can go back and check the given information - that there was No oppositional information back then. This lays bare the naked truth. Because, when we know today that basically all information was false and nobody contradicted the information then, it must be logically true that everbody talking about Libya then, all politicians, all academics and all media must have been telling the same lies. There is simply no way of denying this. It is what Karl Kraus and Ludwig Wittgenstein would call a one-and-a-half-truth.
This way, everybody can know for a fact that every period's information has shown up to be evidence that our states and public spheres are rotten to the core. This applies both to domestic and foreign policy.
To bear witness and enlighten people about the kind of totalitarian world we actually inhabit, I research to collect the best critical (= true) academic knowledge and journalistic information on different topics. Not least the former wars. People may find the most trustworthy information about the former wars and the totalitarian lies that accompanid them on my pages on Korea, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria etc.
The Big Picture: it's all about powerful conspiracies!
"Those who tell the stories rule society." - Plato
The Big Business People that were convicted at Nuremberg as being the real culprits running Hitler's 'Foreign Policy' for thirteen years only got a few years jail. While some of their ground men soldiers were hanged they were free i a couple of years. One of the Nazi generals even was appointed to head of NATO later...
It is the same Big Business that have run the world ever since. They had the US/CIA make the Great German Europe that they had Hitler 'working' on. The same Big business Power Relations destroyed Yugoslavia (together with MI6, CIA, British SAS special forces etc) on complete lies, fabrications and NATO's illegal bombs on Serbian civilian infrastructure etc.
It is the same Big Business that run the EU today - and more than ever. They destroyed Greece - also on complete lies (95% of the loans given to Greece went directly back to German, French, British etc. big shareholders that had given very risky loans to private banks in Greece - only the 95% loans were now 'nationalized' and thereby put on the Greek people as an even much bigger burden. So, the 'loans' were not loans but burden).
And the same scheme is going to be applied to other EU nations in the South that don't have their own currency. NB. Own currency = Own state = Own policies. Most economists don't protest the EU. Because either they don't know this (many of them) or they simply still want an EU with one currency. Why? Because that so would fit their 'pure' economic models on their minds. Please notice that everything important going on in the EU is happening behind closed doors. And that the Western media completely and lie, suppress and make propaganda on the EU issues, too.
That is because it is the same Big Business that run all the Western 'Foreign Policy' today and control the media. Where they are not in control they have had right wing 'globalist' enthusiastic politicians and journalists hired so that they will do and say, what Big Business want out of ideological reasons. It is enough, actually a qualification, if you are not too bright either as a journalist or as a politicians to fall their globalist propaganda, just look at the academic world that have promoted the 'globalist agenda' still more for the past thirty years. If you try to explain that the civil liberties, workers' rights and welfare state rights are all hung up on the national states, they still won't listen and says that the 'future' is globalism...
Here we come to the best part of it. The same Big Business had their CIA hitmen make even the very question of asking what is going on 'illegal'. That is, they fabricated the 'conspiracy meme' in the sixties and had it circulated all over the US media (later it is also over all the European media - as everybody knows). So, you cannot tell - in fact not even ask questions - about the Big Business, politics, media and 'intel agencies' connectedness of things as I lay out here.
The only differences between me and Colin Powell stating such a (hidden) conspiracy theory, are, that I am not working for Big Business that I care about people and that I mean what I say, when I say: 'These statements are not assertations, these statements are based on facts, solid facts'. Only the British Parliament have acknowledged that all the info on the war on Libya was false. But that is of course something. Important. So, why do the UK continue the exact same false, illegal and insane war on Syria. NATO systematically back, fund, arm, train, lead and bomb for al Nusra and ISIS in Syria. BBC just covered it up as a 'mistake'. They are corrupt. Completely.
I have made pages with relevant if not crucial information on all these subjects and many more. Not least on the factual knowledge we have today that the US/NATO wars killing millions of people on lies and propaganda for Big Business were all illegal - and actually as a matter of fact insanely more cruel than the nazis's 'wars'. NATO do not so much go into war, they more accurately destroy nations. So:
"You wouldn't know it. It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest." Harold Pinter
That is all for now! I must run (boy to football ;) ) - sorry about misspellings etc.
Is Alternet's Ben Norton on CIA's Payroll? #NATOLibya
"In 2010, almost a decade into this secret war with its voracious appetite for information, the Washington Post reported that the national security state had swelled into a “fourth branch” of the federal government - with 854,000 vetted officials, 263 security organizations, and over 3,000 intelligence units, issuing 50,000 special reports every year." Alfred W. McCoy
You'd probably have to know about CIA's unimaginable history of infiltration in the world, not least in the Western world in the twentieth century, to even consider that the esteemed Alternet could be involved with the CIA. So let me begin by referring a bit history from another time, where people also had no idea of the extent of the CIA infiltration and dirty influence in the Western states.
It is well documented how CIA had an incredibly big and dirty anti-democratic influence all over the world. But that was also true, perhaps more surprisingly, when it comes to CIA's role in the Western states. Everybody should know that throughout the twentieth century the CIA systematically sponsored and played, if not everybody and everything in the Western world, then at least so much that it begs belief. CIA's (corporate) agendas were about destroying left wing politics and political views and about protecting and covering up US imperialism as if it was a rational policy. CIA needed people and writing that would cover up for the Western mass murders and destructions of democracies and nations worldwide and the very real robbing of the peoples' resources. CIA was also working systematically to destroy all understanding and sympathy for communist, socialist, and even social democratic political ideas and philosophies. Here is an excerpt from Edward Said's review of Who Paid the Piper? The CIA and the Cultural Cold War, 1999
Frances Stonor Saunders (Book link
"E.P. Thompson called it the ‘Natopolitan’ world: that is, not just Nato plus all the Cold War military and political institutions that were integral to it, but also a mentality whose web extended over a lot more activity and thought, even in the minds of individuals, than anyone at the time had suspected. Of course there were the revelations in the mid-Sixties about Encounter and the CIA, and later in the US and Britain a stream of disclosures about covert counter-insurgency in every form, from secretly underwritten academic research to assassinations and mass killings.
Yet it still gives me an eerie feeling to read about people like George Orwell, Stephen Spender and Raymond Aron, to say nothing of less admirable characters of the Melvin Lasky stripe, taking part in surreptitiously subsidised anti-Communist ventures – magazines, symphony orchestras, art exhibitions – or in the setting up of foundations in the name of ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’. One of the rare dissenters, Charles Burton Marshall, is quoted here as saying that this bizarre operation to ‘counter Communism’ by trying ‘to break down ... doctrinaire thought patterns’ and anti-American attitudes throughout the world was ‘just about as totalitarian as one can get’." 'Hey, Mister, you want dirty book?' Edward Said, LRB,1999 Link
Western Media function like in a Totalitarian State
"Dr. Ulfkotte says the corruption of journalists and major news outlets by the CIA is routine, accepted, and widespread in the western media, and that journalists who do not comply either cannot get jobs at any news organization, or find their careers cut short. (..) I ended up publishing articles under my own name written by agents of the CIA and other intelligen-ce services, especially the German secret service." Editor of major German newspaper [Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung] Says He Planted Stories for the CIA, Link 2015
There is no doubt that the CIA today, more than ever, has an enormous power over the Western media. Yet, most Western people do not have the faintest idea about CIA's involvement in the media. This is as it should be, seen from CIA's desks, for to be able to exert the most effective influence it is crucial that it is done in the dark. It must be done in a manner, so that the CIA's planted stories and controlled narratives are seen as the natural outcome of actual journalism. And this is clearly done so perfectly that even the mentioning of CIA with regard to influence in our media would be disregarded as laughable 'conspiracy theorizing' by most people. In short, CIA has managed to make it a taboo to talk about them in relation to the Western media. Just as it is a taboo to talk about CIA's dirty role in current foreign policy. And of course, unless people are officially employed by the CIA, we never see anyone, journalists or academics admitting in the public that they work for the CIA. So, as everybody knows, we never see any Western politician, journalist or academic criticize CIA's role in the world.
On the other hand, we have a reality where the Western media more than ever sing in concert and never come up with reports and view points that contradict NATO's agenda and constructed narratives. This is obviously not to say that all the different media say precisely the same thing on each (fabricated) narrative. Already Goebbels was acutely
aware of the necessity of a big orchester playing tunes from an apparently plethora of independent source.
Alternet is one of the more respected American media sites with often important critical journalism. Ben Norton has a reputation as a particularly critical minded journalist, when it comes to US foreign policy. Given that Norton exists in a very large choir of Western media completely non-critical and subservient to the US offical line, it is easy to understand Norton's reputation. And it is easy to understand the sympathy his writings get from like-minded readers critical about US foreign policy.
My case-study critique here of Ben Norton's recent report on Western media, NATO and Libya's alleged slave trade can best be understood as a symptom of how much our media generally work for NATO's agendas and provides legitimacy for illegal wars. My hope is that by showing how problematic one of the most critical journalist is on an important issue, people can begin to appreciate that we need much, much more critical reporting if we shall be able to counter NATO's narratives - and 'interventions'.
The problem is that NATO's and CIA's narratives to legitimize 'interventions' [read: wars] are so completely false and deceitful that unless one contradicts them completely, one supports them. Only the most cynical analytical approach to NATO's motives, lies and fabricated 'evidence' can do justice to what the Western nations actually do around the world. It is here that we need to scrutinize and criticize the most apparently critical journalism, for if it do not do the job, it is most likely helping the very agendas and narratives that it purports to go against.
If we shall have any hope of putting a stop to NATO's nation destructions, people must understand the very deadly consequences of Western media, when they legitimize NATO 'interventions'. It is a sociological fact that all the late NATO interventions would be impossible without our journalists' willingness to support the lies. The Western media's support of the lies is a necessity for Western imperialism and NATO interventions. If the journalists began reporting the critical information available they would stop the wars. But the journalists cannot do it by themselves. They need academic support to be able to gain the necessary social power. A more concerted intellectual dismantling of the lies provided by corrupt journalism can therefore, in principle, save hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. It is no accident that journalists were also convicted at the Nuremberg Tribunal.
The totalitarian Character of the Western Media
People finally need to realize that Western journalists work so completely together to legitimize the rationality if not necessity of NATO interventions - as if they were controlled to do so. Now, such a complete conspiracy behind Western media is exactly what the former German editor of Frankfurter Allgeimene Zeitung said is the reality. And after having followed the Western media close the past couple of years, everything suggest that the German editor told us the truth.
how can we realize this .. will write tomorrow..
Media Lens, Fair and Sputnik are tricked by the overt semantics
Ben Norton has written an article on NATO's responsibility for the alleged 'slave trade' in Libya today. In the article he criticizes the Western mainstream media for not telling about the slave trade and for not reporting on NATO's responsibility creating the situation in Libya today. It is certainly true that NATO bears the responsibility for the situation in Libya today (but there is more to the story than meets the eye). And Media Lens, Fair and Sputnik enthusiastically shares his story and explanations. Here is what Media Lens wrote on their Facebook wall (November 29, 2017):
"This is a superb piece by Ben Norton about the shocking slave trade in Libya: a consequence of Nato's bombing campaign in 2011 and Nato's support for extremist racist 'rebels'. And how the corporate media has essentially buried these uncomfortable facts.===Media Erase NATO Role in Bringing Slave Markets to Libya
'Twenty-first century slave markets. Human beings sold for a few hundred dollars. Massive protests throughout the world.
'The American and British media have awakened to the grim reality in Libya, where African refugees are for sale in open-air slave markets. Yet a crucial detail in this scandal has been downplayed or even ignored in many corporate media reports: the role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in bringing slavery to the North African nation.
'...to acknowledge NATO’s complicity in empowering these racist extremist militants, corporate media would have to acknowledge NATO’s role in the 2011 regime change war in Libya in the first place'."
Norton leaves out the most critical points for a true explanation of NATO's agenda and dirty involvement i Libya. While he in effect come to support the CNN narrative and opens up for yet another NATO 'intervention'.
I have great respect for Media Lens, so this is just what it is: a critique of Norton's explanations. To help Media Lens, Fair and Sputnik spreading truth instead of lies. Below is my sociological reasoning for accusing Ben Norton and - consequently - Alternet.
Below his words Norton asks for new NATO Intervention in Libya
“Omission is the most powerful form of lie.” – George Orwell
Let me begin by telling you what Ben Norton actually did tell us of importance. The then move on the focusing on what he did not but should have told us. I will use his article in Fair and his interview on Sputnik: 'All things Middle East on today's episode of By Any Means Necessary. Show favorite Ben Norton joins Eugene and Sean for the hour."

Enough for today. More tomorrow.
What George Monbiot Covers Up on Yugoslavia
I really don't care what Monbiot says. He is covering up and legitimizing the Guardian's systematic suppression of the Western people. I regard him as a betrayer of journalism helping to kill people at home and abroad. But recently I have come to learn that he systematically covers up for NATO's lies and attacks journalists, who actually fight to tell people the truth about, what is going on in the world. How NATO lies, fabricates and deliberately destroys nations - inclusive committing mass murder in the hundred thousands. Just as Monbiot is a complete liar, attacking the best people to cover up NATO's lies on Syria today, I have come to learn that he was also a complete liar on Yugoslavia, covering up for NATO and attacking one of the very finest and most important academics in the twentieth century, Edward Herman. Thanks, but no thanks, I am disgusted Mr. Monbiot. So, I take this as a welcome opportunity to put my ressource page on Yugoslavia into some practical use.
The most important lesson from Yugoslavia is not only that all NATO nations lied in the most totalitarian manner, used false flags, fabrications and extremist Mujahideen mercenaries there. The most important lesson is that the War in Yugoslavia made NATO and the Western nations into a single completely cynical totalitarian info- and war machine. It is in this perspective that Monbiot's attacks show their true colour in all its horror. He is trying to shut up the last remaining people, who are working to inform people about the truth of our nations.
Lies? Nah, rather fabrications on an unheard scale, false flags and NATO soldiers killing civilians to blame the Serbs and legitimize bombing the Serbian people on a false pretext
So it begins. It is almost false to simply say that all information in the Western media, by the politicians, NATO etc. was false. It is worse than that. It is more accurate to say that all information on Yugoslavia, used to conduct and legitimize the war on Yugoslavia relied on fabrications.
To destroy Yugoslavia, NATO and its corporate masters succeeded in recruiting the Western left politicians. Joschka Fischer and the German social democratic government with Gerhard Schröeder as Prime Minister deliberately misinformed the German people and everybody else of course. This was a necessity to bring Germany into war for NATO and most helpfulp in mobilizing the European peoples. Evidence can be found in an important German documentary from 2001. A NATO spoke person praises the German politicians for their lies that were instrumental in dragging Germany back in to war. A very experienced Swedish peace researcher with connections in NATO, Tunander later informed the world at a peace conference, that high-ranking NATO people had admitted to him that they knew the truth and had lied deliberately.
Then we come to the even more criminal aspect of the war on Yugoslavia. British SAS special forces made false flags and deliberately killed civilians. Together with Mujahideen extremist mercenaries they attacked civilians and blamed the Serbs. A French colonel from the French Foreign Legion later wrote a book, where he explained that his men had fought NATO’s forces at Pristina, with the title Europe died at Pristina (in French). Another French officer, Bunel gave the Serbs information about coming NATO bombs. There were Western journalists at the time trying to inform people that NATO deliberately bombed the Chinese embassy and important media station, to kill the Yugoslavian journalists, who were informing the Yugoslavia people about what was happening. Bunel was imprisoned. He also wrote a book on it. It should also be mentioned that some of the Spanish pilots refused to fly and bomb in Yugoslavia.
To mention only thing about the after-play. NATO later denied Milosevic Russian medical help in prison, so he died. One of his lawyers, Christopher C. Black is rather sure he was killed deliberately this way, by NATO making sure that he was not getting the proper treatment. But even though Milosevic was set up in a completely NATO controlled false trial, he was still evicted posthumously in 2016. I guess there are still some judges with decency.
The Western media never reported how false, they had all been on Yugoslavia. Nor did the UN, the politicians or NATO. Of course they did not. If they did the wars that followed would not have been possible and all the implicated Western politicians would have been forced out of politics, completely dishonored if not trialed, jailed and perhaps even hanged.
Former advisor to JFK and most knowledgeable on economics, US intelligence and history, Sean Gervasi, husbond to Heather Cottin, predicted it years before it happened. He talked about it and warned about the coming war on Yugoslavia. Gervasi held a lecture in 1996, ..., where he among other things explained this:
Text excerpt from Gervasi's Warning on the real situation - 1996
"The Struggle for Mastery in the Balkans
We have been witnessing, since 1990, a long and agonizing crisis in Yugoslavia. It has brought the deaths of tens of thousands, driven perhaps two million people from their homes and caused turmoil in the Balkan region. And in the West it is generally believed that this crisis, including the civil wars in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, was the result of internal Yugoslav conflicts, and specifically of conflicts between Croats, Serbs and Bosnian Muslims. This is far from the essence of the matter.
The main problem in Yugoslavia, from the first, was foreign intervention in the country's internal affairs. Two Western powers, the United States and Germany, deliberately contrived to destabilize and then dismantle the country. The process was in full swing in the 1 980s and accelerated as the present decade began. These powers carefully planned, prepared and assisted the secessions which broke Yugoslavia apart. And they did almost everything in their power to expand and prolong the civil wars which began in Croatia and then continued in Bosnia-Herzegovina. They were involved behind the scenes at every stage of the crisis.
Foreign intervention was designed to create precisely the conflicts which the Western powers decried. For they also conveniently served as an excuse for overt intervention once civil wars were under way.
Such ideas are, of course, anathema in Western countries. That is only because the public in the West has been systematically misinformed by war propaganda. It accepted almost from the beginning the version of events promuligated by governments and disseminated through the mass media. It is nonetheless true that Germany and the US were the principal agents in dismantling Yugoslavia and sowing chaos there.
This is an ugly fact in the new age of realpolitik and geo-political struggles which has succeeded the Cold War order. Intelligence sources have begun recently to allude to this reality in a surprisingly open manner. In the summer of 1995, for instance, INTELLIGENCE DIGEST, a respected newsletter published in Great Britain, reported that:
The original US-German design for the former Yugoslavia [included] an independent Muslim-Croat dominated BosniaHerzegovina in alliance with an independent Croatian and alongside a greatly weakened Serbia. 
Every senior official in most Western governments knows this description to be absolutely accurate. And this means, of course, that the standard descriptions of "Serbian aggression" as the root cause of the problem, the descriptions of Croatia as a "new democracy", etc. are not just untrue but actually designed to deceive."

A note on the NATO controlled after-play
Gervasi died later that year from from stomach cancer in Belgrade, LINK
. His talk was later honored on the launching of the important media site Global Research
. A site all Western journalists and academics to this day have suppressed and stigmatized, thereby doing the greatest service to Western media propaganda and political lies, and to NATO, CIA, MI6 etc. hindering the Western people - and themselves - from taking the most crucial critical information seriously.
I also used to be rather sceptical about Global Research, but after reading critical information on NATO's wars and destructions for a couple of years now, every day and from hundreds of sources, my mind and vision have gotten accustomed to knowing that Global Research generally, we all make mistakes, provides some of the most crucial important information out there. And of course, nobody has an immaculate perception seeing reality with the bare eyes, an illusion Nietzsche warned about, so it does take time to get out of the false Western world view created attending Western propaganda and lies for years if not decades. Just as it takes a couple of years for chemists working in a lab to be able to see correctly and clearly in a microscope.
Read the text excerpts in the middle of my home page on Yugoslavia. And know that the truth is completely different from what we have heard for decades. I must also mention Luciana Bohne here. Her heartbreaking informative articles, writing from her own childhood experience with German bombs in her village and the horror of German soldiers killing village men to today's bombings in Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria etc. Luciana's knowledgeable mind put me into begin knowing all of this only a couple of years ago, where I went into her and other knowledgeable people's Facebook University. If I had not come to know her via Facebook, I would probably never have come to completely changing my mind away from everything, that I thought I knwe about NATO, our politicians and the wars from Yugoslavia. This was the beginning of me finding out the truth about, what the EU did to Greece (a corporate/Goldman Sachs' economic war on the nation) and that everything we hear on Syria is completely false.
Perhaps it is possible for readers now,
given the sketchy critical perspective above, to appreciate Edward Herman's text 'The Srebrenica Massacre was a Gigantic Political Fraud', 2016, Global Research LINK.
Herman died a short while ago. RIP Herman. To paraphrase Erwing Goffman, I wish that I had been even close to almost meeting both Herman and Gervasi.
Dear reader, you can go to my page on Yugoslavia to read a longer summation on NATO's war on Yugoslavia made by excerpts from important literature on the subject. Link below together with other links related to NATO's 'foreign policy'.
Merci bien 😉
