A follow-up to a previous a story entitled “Comes a Blond Stranger …“
Years later (present day) …
The two sat at a table in the large basement cafeteria of the Agency’s Washington DC headquarters. They were drinking lattes instead of coffee, as in years past. The basement had been remodeled: soft lighting; beige carpeting. Even the chairs had gone upscale, expensive and over-stuffed. A lot of money sloshing around Capitol Hill these days.
The worse it got outside, the better the Agency seemed to do.
The senior man missed the look and …

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has won an award from the “Economist” magazine, a financial publication controlled by the Rothschild banking family, and he has also featured on an “Economist” video clip, raising questions about conflicts of interest. Assange predicted a bank run could be triggered by bank data leaks but he does not mention that this would result in the robbery of millions of people because of the way the fractional reserve banking system works, and profit the banks.
Is a false flag bank run hyped by the banker’s …

UPDATE: (see end of article)
Daniel Ellsberg has been running around singing the praises of Julian Assange ever since his first big-time leak, the Collateral Damage video, which showed a U.S. gunship killing various unarmed civilians in Iraq two of whom happened to be reporters. With the recent pile of “leaked” state department memos, Ellsberg can’t hardly take a breath between interviews and round table discussions, where he is the primary focus and a staunch supporter of everything Wikileaks.
But there is something rotten in Denmark, folks.
It’s not a stretch to say that most …
How can you claim to understand war if you don’t understand the events that trigger it?

It has been obvious for several years that the worldwide peace movement, if you can call it that, is a total sham. It needs a radical transformation. And groups like Code Pink can’t be expected to lead it because truth demands the blue flame of anger, not flower power.
Governments and media propagandists have failed in containing the force of truth. And their betrayal of humanity in these dark times will not be …

The corporate media are reliable and consistent. They consistently focus on the sensational, and they reliably take the position of the US government. So, it should come as no surprise that the recent release of US diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks is being covered with much sound and fury, signifying little.
On the sensational and gossip-mongering front we have Gaddafi’s Ukrainian nurse, Angela Merkel’s “manly” leadership skills, Putin’s cozy relationship with Berlusconi, sex crimes charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, etc. On the mundane lapdog front we have repeated stories touting …

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 …

I want to share some important recent developments regarding The Electronic Intifada.
A few days ago I wrote to ask ei supporters to take action to support The Electronic Intifada’s independent reporting on Palestine by making a contribution to our 2010 fundraising campaign. If you’ve already done so, please accept my thanks on behalf of our team.
As I write today, The Electronic Intifada is under attack from a prominent anti-Palestinian organization, which we believe aims to shut us down by …

British mercenaries are to be deployed in Somalia, according to the London-based Sunday Telegraph. The Telegraph, which is well informed on military matters, revealed last week that the Foreign Office has been in talks with a firm that employs former members of the Special Boat Service (SBS).
The ex-SBS men will work with local warlords to take control of the coastline along the strategic shipping route that runs around the Horn of Africa. Ostensibly the plan is an anti-piracy measure responding to the kidnapping of a British couple who …

Let us ponder for a second about the meaning of ‘leaking’. When something is leaking, it is usually understood that some fluid substance that is supposed to be flowing in a certain direction, is escaping from its designed route because of a defect in the structure that was built to guide it. Usually, if you have a leaking pipe in your water system, your main problem is that you are unable to control the flow of it, and water goes into directions where you don’t want it …
WikiLeaks Drop Shows U.S. Striving to Maintain Order in Chaotic Global Relations … Some of the diplomatic papers stolen from the State Department and leaked Sunday by WikiLeaks show more than just potentially embarrassing revelations about U.S. views of allies but disturbing developments among alleged friends as well as foes and competitive states. The details from the cables being released – among 250,000 illegally taken from secret State Department records – include discussions on the U.S. being unable to stop Syrian arms to Hezbollah, its disappointment in Qatar to stop …
