Jody McIntyre Destroys BBC Reporter Live On Air

By the Editor.
Hat tip to Scott Creighton over at American Everyman for posting this video.
Recently assaulted activist and demonstrator Jody McIntyre, verbally demolishes a BBC reporter live on air in this video interview. After the condescending, patronising interviewer’s repeated attempts to paint Jody and his fellow protesters as violent and threatening, Jody responds:
“Do you think that I could have, in any way, posed a physical threat from the seat of my wheelchair, to an army of police officers armed with weapons? This whole line of argument is absolutely ludicrous …

Wikileaks Linked to US Intelligence and Spying Networks

By the Editor.
Julian Assange’s outright dismissal of the 9/11 cover-up as a ‘false conspiracy’ rang alarm bells with me. How could a purported ‘whistleblower’, claiming to be exposing the lies of corrupt governments shield the biggest lie of the 21st century from criticism? Anybody willing to do five minutes of research can uncover the trove of evidence suggesting a cover-up and lying at the highest levels of the US government with regards to 9/11. Especially a ‘computer hacker’ of world renown.
What kind of ‘whistleblower’ only leaks his …

Four Lions

By the Editor, re-posted from 20 May 2010.
I feel the urge to share my thoughts on Chris Morris’s debut film ‘Four Lions’. It’s a comedy about four inept suicide bombers planning a terrorist attack in the UK. A very ballsy choice of plot indeed, so I was looking forward to see what was in store. In the end I was disappointed – it carried a politically charged theme, and was riddled with misrepresentations and distortions. As far as the comedy element goes, I chuckled a few …

Wall Street ‘Exposé’ Directed by CFR Shill

By the Editor.
My curiosity was piqued when a friend told me of the upcoming Wall Street documentary exposé ‘Inside Job’. It’s got some pretty good reviews, and perhaps it will pack enough punch to educate the general public about the theft of taxpayer money that constituted the euphemistically termed ‘bailout’. Online reviews have praised the film, “A wake-up call of macroeconomic proportions”, “Economics explained beautifully” – certainly sounds worth a watch.
Admittedly though, you have to be quite naive to think that a genuine expose of Wall Street could …

Hollywood – Manufacturing Consent

By the Editor.
I learned of Oliver Stone’s new documentary film ‘South of the Border’ many months ago, and have been eagerly anticipating it ever since. It’s a welcome change from the suffocating bias that clouds the mainstream media (especially in the US) with regards to South America and Hugo Chavez in particular. In a nutshell, Stone’s new piece gives the viewer an insight into the Socialist revolution in South America and the leaders pioneering it. You’ll also get a brief history of how US imperialism and financial …

Regime Change 2.0

By the Editor.
The US Department of The Treasury has kindly decided to relax export controls related to technology for Iranian web users. The amendments will allow Internet users in Iran to download software related to communications, such as instant messaging and chat clients, and tools related to social networking. They will also permit the export of the same types of software to Iran.
Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin opines that this is “consistent with the administration’s deep commitment to the universal rights of all the world’s citizens”. How …

Gaza Flotilla Massacre: Witness Testimonies

By the Editor.
Media coverage of the Flotilla Massacre has been a disgrace.  In confiscating cameras and imprisoning the aid workers travelling on the ships, Israel has succeeded in enacting a media blackout after its killing of 10 unarmed civilians in international waters.
In unsurprising sycophancy, the Western press has shamefully reserved the majority of its page space and airtime to the Israeli government point of view.  This has consisted of propaganda and lies – some laughable, but some dangerously believable.  Comments and assertions have ranged from claims that the aid workers …

An Inconvenient Truth

By the Editor.
Several news agencies including the UK Guardian, the UK Independent, the Washington Post, and The Financial Times today reported that senior US officials are pointing the finger at the Pakistani Taliban for the recent Times Square bomb plot. This notion might not seem out of the ordinary to the uninitiated, but it doesn’t sit well with those knowledgeable about The Taliban. Historically, the Taliban has only had domestic intentions and aspirations; not seeking to exert influence beyond its own borders.
Al-Qaeda on the other hand, quite clearly …
