This Year I Will Wear a Poppy for the Last Time (Harry Leslie Smith)

PoppyNoWarNews48

Harry Leslie Smith, "This year I will wear a poppy for the last time", The Guardian (08 November 2013)

 

I haven't worn a poppy for a few years now. I'm not a pacifist, at least I'm not a proper one; I can just about imagine circumstances in which it's better to fight than to allow wickedness to prevail and do even more damage, and I think Hitler and his Nazi thugs were such a wickedness. But I have become increasingly conscious of how the poppy symbol and remembrance in general have become co-opted by the modern war machine, serving to baptise the UK's wars of the 21st Century in the spirit of its perhaps more morally-defensible Past.

Don't Let David Cameron Turn You Into An Extremist - Defend Free Speech (UK)

DavidCameronNews48

Defend Free Speech, "Don't Let David Cameron Turn You Into An Extremist", DefendFreeSpeech.org.uk

 

If you're in the UK, please support the Defend Free Speech Campaign (http://defendfreespeech.org.uk/) which has been set up recently by the Christian Institute and The National Secular Society, who are working together to defend our right to freedom of speech in this country. Please join their campaign (as I have done) and write to your MP expressing your concern about the proposed EDOs (as I have done). Parliamentary democracy doesn't work well for the people, but it exists and we can make use of it, such as it is. If enough of us tell our MPs that we are deeply concerned, especially by the nebulous term "non-violent extremism", we may be able to wake up our somnambulant MPs to the danger this presents.

Disinformation : How It Works (Brandon Smith / Personal Liberty)

TrollNews48

Brandon Smith, "Disinformation : How It Works", PersonalLiberty.com (09 June 2015)

In the age of feudalism, elites were able to silence the peasants via threat of vagrancy, property theft, gaol and sword. Today, they have to do it far more subtly: via the power of lies. In a very helpful article, Brandon Smith lays out some of the ways in which they manage to pull it off.

Chris Floyd, "Corbyn the Kitten Eater : How Low Will Bipartisan Brit Media Go?", Empire Burlesque (16 September 2015)

In an exclusive piece at Empire Burlesque, Chris Floyd reports on eyewitnesses who say they saw Jeremy Corbyn behaving suspiciously like Adolf Hitler and "literally eating the heads off newborn kittens." Hard to believe, I know, but anyone tempted to choose this man in the 2020 UK General Election MUST read this report first before casting their vote. You have been warned!

How will Labour top losing the election? By losing its own leadership contest (Frankie Boyle)

JeremyCorbynNews48

Frankie Boyle, "How will Labour top losing the election? By losing its own leadership contest", The Guardian (27 August 2015)

 

The thing about comedian and master of irony Frankie Boyle is that you can never be quite sure if he's being outrageous for effect, or if he actually means what he says; that's all part of his appeal. But however he really means it, his thought is certainly worth pondering.

The Conspiracy Theory of History Revisited (Murray N. Rothbard)

AnnuitCoeptisNews48

Murray N. Rothbard, "The Conspiracy Theory of History Revisited", Mises Daily (15 February 2008). [This article originally appeared in Reason, April 1977, pp. 39–40.]

 

Anytime that a hard-nosed analysis is put forth of who our rulers are, of how their political and economic interests interlock, it is invariably denounced by Establishment liberals and conservatives (and even by many libertarians) as a "conspiracy theory of history," "paranoid," "economic determinist," and even "Marxist." These smear labels are applied across the board, even though such realistic analyses can be, and have been, made from any and all parts of the economic spectrum, from the John Birch Society to the Communist Party. The most common label is "conspiracy theorist," almost always leveled as a hostile epithet rather than adopted by the "conspiracy theorist" himself.

Chilcot what? State Department spokesman stumped by inquiry (RT)

BushBlairLoveAffairNews48

Russia Today, "Chilcot what? State Department spokesman stumped by inquiry", RT.com (24 August 2015)

 

Incredible though it may seem to many (myself included), apparently US State Department spokesman Admiral John Kirby hasn't even heard of the Chilcot Inquiry! Would it be too cynical of me to think that perhaps - just perhaps - he is feigning ignorance? After all, I wouldn't want to have to explain why Washington is refusing to release certain documents about the Bush-Blair discussions prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Panic Attackers: Grass-Roots Challenge Sparks High-Level Hissy Fit (Chris Floyd)

JeremyCorbynNews48

Chris Floyd, "Panic Attackers: Grass-Roots Challenge Sparks High-Level Hissy Fit", Empire Burlesque (19 August 2015)

In characteristically flamboyant style Chris Floyd pricks the bubble of British Establishment fury at Jeremy Corbyn's bid for the UK Labour Party leadership. Though apparently "unelectable" to the likes of Tony Blair (friend of "dictators and other assorted sleazebags"), Corbyn's campaign has seen "more than 400,000 people" join the ranks of the Labour Party, in sharp contrast to the exodus of "200,000 members" during the Blair years, "most of them stage left."

Theresa May (UK Home Secretary): What Is "Extremism"? (BBC Radio 4)

 GreenwaldOnCameron

Pondering further UK Prime Minister David Cameron's remarks on Monday about "extremism" (which Glenn Greenwald tweeted as "one of the creepiest and most authoritarian speeches you'll ever hear"), it's nice to know we can turn to one of his key colleagues for further clarification. Quizzed in May by BBC Radio 4 Today Programme's John Humphrys as to what the government means by "extremism" and the "British values" it apparently offends, Mrs. May seemed to be unable to explain.

David Cameron's speech on extremism (BBC News)

DavidCameronNews48

BBC News, "David Cameron's speech on extremism", BBC News Youtube channel (20 July 2015)

 

OK, I'm not shocked, but I am appalled, again. Back in September 2014 UK Prime Minister David Cameron heavily implied that people who question events like 9/11 and 7/7 should be classified as "non-violent extremists." Today, during his speech in Birmingham (UK) on the government's five-year plan for tackling extremism, he includes a section on "conspiracy theories." This time he is less specific (according this video), but his speech does include these phrases: "the world is not conspiring against Islam" and "the security services aren't behind terrorist attacks", phrases that he offers as negations of the assertions of so-called "conspiracy theorists."

TIME Admits ISIS Bringing Arms, Fighters in From NATO Territory (Tony Cartalucci / NEO)

HUMVNews48

Tony Cartalucci, "TIME Admits ISIS Bringing Arms, Fighters in From NATO Territory", New Eastern Outlook (12 June 2015)

 

Late last year, Germany’s broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) investigated what turned out to be hundreds of trucks a day carrying billions of dollars in supplies, flowing across the Turkish border into Syria and directly into the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS).

The border crossing near the Turkish city of Oncupinar, approximately 100km west of the Syrian city of Kobani, is apparently only one of many such crossings where ISIS fighters, weapons, and materiel move directly under the watch and apparent assistance of NATO.

TMR 057 : [Reposting] : Tom Secker : 7/7 - The London Bombings

TomSeckerFor the tenth anniversary of The London Bombings (7/7) - and by way of counterpoint to the mainstream narrative that no significant questions remain - TMR takes the opportunity to repost our detailed interview with writer, researcher and film-maker Tom Secker from 2014.

Drawing upon his several years of research, Tom shares with us many of the problems with the official story, delves into the backstories behind the alleged suicide bombers, and uncovers layer upon layer of suspicious information suggesting that 7/7 may have been a false-flag terror event. Tom also discusses how, in the run-up to the attacks, predictive programming in popular culture may have shaped public perception of 7/7, and how cognitive infiltration as a double bluff has negatively impacted the quest for 7/7 truth.
