ISRAEL’S DEFENSE CHIEF WARNS U.S. IS TOO “WEAK” TO RELY ON FOR SUPPORT AGAINST IRAN

Israel’s defense chief warns U.S. is too “Weak” to rely on for Support against Iran
Israel’s defense minister has accused the United States of projecting weakness internationally and said Israel could not rely on its main ally to take the lead in confronting Iran over its nuclear program.
Moshe Yaalon, whose remarks were reported in the Haaretz daily on Tuesday, caused friction with the United States only two months ago when he described Secretary of State John Kerry’s quest for Israeli-Palestinian peace as messianic and obsessive.

His latest comments, confirmed by an Israeli official who was present at lecture Yaalon delivered at Tel Aviv University on Monday, displayed deep disappointment with U.S. President Barack Obama’s handling of burning world issues.

“We had thought it would be the United States that would lead the campaign against Iran,” said Yaalon, who pointed to the Ukraine crisis as an example of Washington “showing weakness”.

It was unclear from Yaalon’s reported remarks where he believed the United States, which on Monday imposed sanctions on two top aides to President Vladimir Putin and nine other people linked to Russia’s Crimean incursion, had gone wrong on Ukraine.

Iran and six world powers will try to make headway on the nuclear dispute in talks that started in Vienna on Tuesday, with Western officials hoping the challenge will not be made even more difficult by the Ukraine crisis.

Yaalon said that although “people know Iran cheats”, the United States and other nations chose to negotiate with Tehran on restricting activities they fear are aimed at developing atomic arms.

“Therefore, on this matter, we have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves,” Yaalon said, echoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s veiled threats of unilateral military action against Iran if diplomacy fails.

“Unfortunately, when it comes to negotiating at a Persian bazaar, the Iranians are better,” said Yaalon, a former armed forces chief and a hawkish member of Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party.
In the Middle East, Yaalon said, he had heard “voices of disappointment” over a lack of U.S. support for Sunni Muslim rebels in the three-year-old conflict in Syria.

And on a recent visit in Asia, he added, he found “disappointment about China getting stronger and the U.S. getting weaker”.

Netanyahu, whose country is widely believed to be the Middle East’s only nuclear-armed nation, has denounced as a “historic mistake” an interim deal reached with Iran in November on curbing sensitive nuclear activities in return for limited sanctions relief.

He has demanded that any final accord dismantle Tehran’s uranium enrichment centrifuges, a position at odds with Obama’s suggestion that Iran, which says its nuclear program is peaceful, could be allowed to enrich on a limited basis for civilian purposes.

“Comfortable Westerners prefer to put off confrontation, if possible to next year or the next leadership term. But in the end, it will blow up,” Yaalon said.

TONY ABBOTT FACES INTERNAL BACKLASH OVER RACIAL DISCRIMINATION LAW CHANGE

Tony Abbott faces an internal backlash over his plans to amend the Racial Discrimination Act, with the Liberal party’s first Indigenous lower house member, Ken Wyatt, warning that he might cross the floor to vote against the legislation.

Another Coalition MP, Ewen Jones, told his colleagues at a joint Liberal and National party meeting on Tuesday that the government must be careful about the optics of the proposal and ensure it did not appear too ideological.

Abbott promised before the election to amend the Racial Discrimination Act in the interests of upholding free speech.

Unhappy with a 2011 federal court ruling about articles by the conservative commentator Andrew Bolt, the Coalition vowed to repeal section 18C in its current form. The section makes it unlawful to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” a person or group because of their “race, colour or national or ethnic origin”.

The internal concerns came as community groups warned the government against pursuing “morally repugnant” changes to racial discrimination laws, arguing Australia’s national interests were being sacrificed to score points in the “culture wars”.

In a blistering joint statement issued on Tuesday, representatives of the Indigenous, Greek, Jewish, Chinese, Arab, Armenian and Korean communities vowed to step up their campaign against amendments that would “license the public humiliation of people because of their race”.

It is understood Wyatt, Jones and other Coalition MPs David Coleman, Craig Laundy, Alex Hawke, George Christensen and Ian Macdonald offered their views on the issue at the private meeting of Liberal and National members on Tuesday.

Guardian Australia understands that Wyatt made a “very forceful” contribution which left open the option of crossing the floor to vote against the possible changes. It is understood he said he had lost friends and people close to him over racism.

Several MPs called on the government to make sure it handled the issue sensitively and noted that ethnic groups were worried about changes.

But one MP countered: “Freedom of speech is a God-given right; if we don’t allow things we don’t want to hear then we don’t believe in freedom.”

Jones told Guardian Australia: “As a middle-aged white man I have never experienced any form of discrimination. From my perspective I could be high about this and say it shouldn’t matter, but I’ve never experienced that and I think we should be very aware of listening to opinions of people who have experienced it.”

Abbott sought to emphasise the common ground between his colleagues.

“Everyone in this room believes in freedom of speech, everyone in the room is against racism, everyone in this room thinks Andrew Bolt should not have been prosecuted,” the prime minister told Coalition MPs.

Abbott observed that there had been a very exhaustive process of consultation and the party needed to reconcile the three points of views. He went on to praise long serving member Philip Ruddock for transforming the relationship between the Coalition and areas of the Australian community, referring to ethnic groups.

“We are the right party to represent a diverse country,” Abbott said.

The government is yet to release legislation showing the extent of proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act. Labor and the Greens, which retain the power to block legislation in the Senate until July, have argued against the need for the change.

A federal court judge in 2011 found that Bolt breached part 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act by publishing newspaper articles that questioned the motivations of fair-skinned people who identified as Aboriginal.

Concerned about the federal court ruling, the Coalition promised to repeal section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act in its current form.

POLICE HOLD ARMED STANDOFF AGAINST MAN WITH GUN TATTOO

The homeowner was awoken to the sound of police loudspeakers and the sight of armed cops surrounding his house.

NORRIDGEWOCK, ME — Police surrounded a man’s home with sharpshooters and armed troopers and demanded his surrender through a megaphone after someone saw a tattoo of a gun on his stomach.

Michael Smith works the night shift and sleeps during the day.   On the morning of March 18th, he was disturbed when he heard a loud racket in his front yard.   It was a tree removal service backing into his driveway preparing to chopping branches around power lines.

Mr. Smith groggily stepped outside in his pajama pants to tell the tree trimmers to come back another time.  They told him it was not a problem, reported the Morning Sentinel.

The only problem was that one of the workers saw Smith’s stomach tattoo and perceived it to be a real gun.   Even though no threats had been made, the worker called police to report a “man with a gun.”

It should be noted that it is not a crime openly wear a handgun in the waistband in Maine.   At home or in public; shirtless or clothed; quiet or shouting; open carry is a recognized right in that state and no justification for police intervention.

Despite this, Maine State Troopers picked up their rifles and produced a life-threatening standoff in front of Mr. Smith’s house.

After Smith had once again gone to bed, he was jolted awake by a loud commotion in his front yard. 

This time it was the sound of police loudspeakers.  State Troopers and Sheriff’s deputies were outside aiming guns at his house and making demands.

Smith got out of bed again and surrendered to the police in his front yard, saying, “I got plans today. I didn’t want to get shot.”

The whole thing had been an embarrassing overreaction.  Still, police stood by their dramatic response.

“Obviously it was a misunderstanding and he didn’t have a weapon, but we had to respond to the initial report as if he did,” Maine State Police Trooper Scott Duff said to the Morning Sentinel. “We take all precautions when we don’t have the details.”

“Man with a gun” calls — or MWAG — are infamously prone to dramatic police overreactions.  Innocent citizens all over the country have been subjected to being harassed, handcuffed, proned out, had guns pointed at them, and otherwise bullied and threatened while doing absolutely nothing illegal or wrong.

If armed police officers were treated in such a way every time they were spotted with a pistol on their belt, they might understand the unfairness of this type of response.

HOW DID THE PRO-PAEDOPHILE GROUP PIE EXIST OPENLY FOR 10 YEARS?



Geoffrey Prime; Tom O'Carroll Former KGB spy and PIE member Geoffrey Prime (left) and PIE Chairman Tom O'Carroll
The Paedophile Information Exchange was affiliated to the National Council for Civil Liberties - now Liberty - in the late 1970s and early 1980s. But how did pro-paedophile campaigners operate so openly?

A gay rights conference backs a motion in favour of paedophilia. The story is written up by a national newspaper as "Child-lovers win fight for role in Gay Lib".

It sounds like a nightmarish plotline from dystopian fiction. But this happened in the UK. The conference took place in Sheffield and the newspaper was the Guardian. The year was 1975. 

It's part of the story of how paedophiles tried to go mainstream in the 1970s. The group behind the attempt - the Paedophile Information Exchange - is back in the news because of a series of stories run by the Daily Mail about Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman.

Start Quote

If there was anything with the word 'liberation' in the name you were automatically in favour of it if you were young and cool in the 1970s. It seemed like PIE had slipped through the net”
Matthew Parris, columnist
 
The Daily Mail has revisited the story of PIE to ask how much Harman and her husband the MP Jack Dromey knew about the group during their time working at the National Council for Civil Liberties, now Liberty, in the late 1970s. PIE was affiliated to the NCCL from the late 1970s to early 1980s.
Many of the revelations are not in fact new. The story's return to the front pages demonstrates the shock people feel about how a group with "paedophile" in its name could operate so openly for so long.

PIE was formed in 1974. It campaigned for "children's sexuality". It wanted the government to axe or lower the age of consent. It offered support to adults "in legal difficulties concerning sexual acts with consenting 'under age' partners". The real aim was to normalise sex with children. 

Journalist Christian Wolmar remembers their tactics. "They didn't emphasise that this was 50-year-old men wanting to have sex with five-year-olds. They presented it as the sexual liberation of children, that children should have the right to sex," he says. 

John Tusa interviews two members of the Paedophile Information Exchange on Newsnight in 1983
It's an ideology that seems chilling now. But PIE managed to gain support from some professional bodies and progressive groups. It received invitations from student unions, won sympathetic media coverage and found academics willing to push its message.

It's wrong to say that PIE was tolerated during the 1970s, says Times columnist Matthew Parris. "I remember a lot of indignation about it [PIE]. It was considered outrageous." 

The group's visits to universities were often opposed. In 1977 PIE's chairman Tom O'Carroll was ejected from a conference on "love and attraction" at University College, Swansea after lecturers "threatened not to deliver their papers if Mr O'Carroll stayed", the Times reported. The May 1978 issue of Magpie, PIE's in-house newspaper, records how O'Carroll had been invited to address students at Liverpool and Oxford University but that the visits were cancelled after local opposition.

Protestors and police outside Conway Hall as the pro-paedophile activist group, the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) holds its first open meeting, London, 19th September 1977. Protestors and police outside Conway Hall, London, where PIE was holding its first open meeting in 1977
 
One of PIE's key tactics was to try to conflate its cause with gay rights. On at least two occasions the Campaign for Homosexual Equality conference passed motions in PIE's favour.

Most gay people were horrified by any conflation of homosexuality and a sexual interest in children, says Parris. But PIE used the idea of sexual liberation to win over more radical elements. "If there was anything with the word 'liberation' in the name you were automatically in favour of it if you were young and cool in the 1970s. It seemed like PIE had slipped through the net."

Some have suggested that nature of debate then was different. "In this free-for-all anything and everything was open for discussion," said Canon Angela Tilby on Radio 4's Thought for the Day. "There were those who claimed that sexual relationships between adults and children could be harmless." Homosexuality had only been decriminalised in 1967. There was still prejudice and inequality. The age of consent was 16 for heterosexuals but 21 for homosexual men.

More from the Magazine

Wolmar had first-hand contact with PIE. In 1976 he began working for Release, an agency helping people with drug and legal problems. Its office at 1 Elgin Avenue in London was a mailing address for PIE. Nobody knew much about them, Wolmar says. "They used to drop in once a week to pick up their mail. They were greasy men," he recalls, people who fitted the stereotype of the "dirty mac" brigade. After Wolmar raised questions about PIE it was decided to bring them in for a meeting. 

Wolmar's colleagues pressed the man from PIE on the age of consent. Wolmar says that the man said there should be no age of consent. Shocked at the idea of a group advocating sex with babies, he and his colleagues unanimously decided to "boot them out". 

It was easy to join PIE. According to a Times legal report on a blackmail case from February 1977, there was no need for subterfuge, just an application and a cheque for £4. In the report, the prosecutor in the case stated: "He said on the form that he was a paedophile, male, married, 29 years old and attracted to girls between the ages of seven and 13 years." The judge proclaimed himself "horrified" at the existence of PIE. 

Unsettlingly for a modern audience, the PIE member received anonymity (as is typical in blackmail cases) and there is no mention of any prosecution of him. Meanwhile, the blackmailer was jailed for three years.

The brazenness could be shocking. Keith Hose, one of PIE's leaders during the 1970s, was quoted by a newspaper saying: "I am a paedophile. I am attracted to boys from about 10, 11, and 12 years of age. I may have had sexual relations with children, but it would be unwise to say." 

When Polly Toynbee interviewed O'Carroll and Hose in the Guardian in September 1977 she heard men incredulous at the lack of support from the press. They seemed genuinely aggrieved at what they called a "Fleet Street conspiracy". One of them told her: "We would expect the Guardian, a decent liberal newspaper to support us."

Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt Labour politicians Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt have come under fire for the NCCL's links to PIE

In a Guardian piece from 1975 it's clear "paedophile" was still not a widely used term and the opening line explains it - "one who is sexually attracted to children". In the piece, Hose is treated as a reliable source throughout.

There were divisions within progressive circles. In 1977 the Campaign for Homosexual Equality passed by a large majority a resolution condemning "the harassment of the Paedophile Information Exchange by the press". 

When Peter Hain, then president of the Young Liberals, described paedophilia as "a wholly undesirable abnormality", a fellow activist hit back. "It is sad that Peter has joined the hang 'em and flog 'em brigade. His views are not the views of most Young Liberals."

And when a columnist supported Hain in the Guardian he was inundated with mail from people - many willing to give their name - who defended sex with children.

Reading the newspapers of the time there is a palpable anxiety that PIE was succeeding.

Paedophilia: An etymological history

  • OED definition for paedophile reads "an adult who is sexually attracted to children"
  • Earliest recorded example of it being used in English is from 1941
  • Current entry for paedophilia reads "sexual desire directed towards children"
  • Older term of the two, with earliest recorded example in 1906
  • OED entry was first published in 1982, and was originally defined as "an abnormal, esp. sexual, love of young children"
  • Definitions and supporting quotation evidence indicate that both terms have always meant something other than just straightforward Greek etymological translation
  • In English, element of sexual attraction has always been present in their meaning
Source: Oxford English Dictionary

A Guardian article in 1977 noted with dismay how the group was growing. By its second birthday in October 1976, it had 200 members. There was a London group, a Middlesex group being planned, and with regional branches to follow. The article speaks of PIE's hopes to widen the membership to include women and heterosexual men.

Toynbee talked of her "disgust, aversion and anger" at the group but added that she had "a sinking feeling that in another five years or so, their aims would eventually be incorporated into the general liberal credo, and we would all find them acceptable".

There was a battle raging over free speech.

Some, such as philosopher Roger Scruton, felt that freedom of speech had to be sacrificed when it came to groups like PIE. In a Times piece in September 1983 he wrote: "Paedophiles must be prevented from 'coming out'. Every attempt to display their vice as a legitimate 'alternative' to conventional morality must be, not refuted, but silenced." 

A Times letter writer, Peter Cadogan, took a different line, defending PIE from the National Front despite loathing them. "Yet again, they assaulted me with stink bombs and sundry soft fruit when I was defending the freedom of speech of another group I abhorred, viz, the Paedophile Information Exchange." He continues that the way to cover "nasty people with nasty ideas" is to "give them all the rope they want and then hang them with it every time they practice what they preach".

But during the 1980s, PIE came a cropper. Its notoriety grew in 1982 with the trial of Geoffrey Prime, who was both a KGB spy and a member of PIE. He was jailed for 32 years for passing on secrets from his job at GCHQ to the Soviet Union, and for a series of sex attacks on young girls. 

A short article from the Daily Mail in June 1983 records how a scoutmaster in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, resigned after being exposed as a member of PIE. 

Charles Oxley, Mary Whitehouse and Conservative politician Geoffrey Dickens London, 14 November 1984  
 
PIE critics: Head teacher Charles Oxley, who infiltrated PIE, Mary Whitehouse and Geoffrey Dickens MP
 
In August 1983 a Scottish headmaster, Charles Oxley, handed over a dossier about PIE to Scotland Yard after infiltrating the group, the Glasgow Herald wrote. He said the group had about 1,000 members. 

But the NCCL continued to defend having PIE as a member. As late as September 1983, an NCCL officer was quoted in the Daily Mail saying the group was campaigning to lower the age of consent to 14. "An offiliate [sic] group like the Paedophile Information Exchange would agree with our policy. That does not mean it's a mutual thing and we have to agree with theirs." 

The authorities debated ways of shutting PIE down. O'Carroll was sentenced to two years in jail for "conspiracy to corrupt public morals" and PIE was disbanded in 1984.

It's hard now to believe the group existed for more than a decade. "Even then the word paedophile was pretty taboo," says Wolmar. "I do find it slightly astounding that they were able to use that name."

SLEEP SOUNDLY, AMERICA: 81-YEAR-OLD LADY JAILED FOR FEEDING BIRDS

Saturday, March 8, 2014

Melissa Melton
Activist Post

That’s right.

An elderly woman violated her probation by leaving bread crumbs out in her yard for crows and will remain behind bars.

Eighty-one-year-old Mary Musselman was first arrested last month for feeding bears in her backyard. One of the bears was euthanized over it because the Fish and Wildlife Service said the bears might learn not to be afraid of people anymore and then get aggressive.

The judge in the case warned Musselman not to feed any more wild animals of any kind:

A judge gave her probation at the time, and made it clear: Do it again, and go to jail.
She did, was arrested in January, and the case ignited controversy when Musselman was held without bond.
Apparently where it got really serious is when officers recently went by to check on her home (as they reportedly did over and over) and found bread crumbs in her yard one day:

Her attorney, William Fletcher, told FOX 13 that officers issued a new arrest warrant after checking on her home and seeing that she was leaving bread out for crows.

That violates her court order not to feed any wild animals.
Yep. An elderly lady was caught leaving out pieces of stale bread for the birds.




This is a clear violation of her probation not to feed any wild animals — even birds, apparently.
(What is this, an Alfred Hitchcock movie?)

She was arrested and put back in jail.

Her attorney has argued that his client is mentally ill, suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and should be allowed to live with her brother under supervision. The judge instead ordered that Musselman remain in jail until she receives a more thorough mental evaluation.

It’s a good thing we live in such a complete and utter nanny state that we now have Fish and Wildlife Service officers serving and protecting us all by repeatedly checking people’s yards for bread crumbs and making sure to reserve our already overburdened criminal justice system and jails for those who pose the absolute biggest threat and are most dangerous to society at large…

Sure, this lady may have mental health issues, but being left in jail for the crime of…feeding birds? Is that really in her best interest (or that of, well, anyone else including her elderly husband who is ill and now all alone)?

So the mega banks are too big to fail or prosecute, and the lobbyist-bought politicians and criminals on Wall Street can roam free to continue to wreck the country hand over fist, but we’re jailing elderly people for sprinkling a little stale bread in their yards for the birds?

Wow, America. Wow.

ALEX JONES CANCELS SPEAKING TOUR 3 DAYS AFTER EXPOSURE AS POSSIBLE STRATFOR DOUBLE AGENT



 
February 16, 2012 Truther.org

Alex Jones cancels American speaking tour after revelations that he may be working for Israeli intelligence agency STRATFOR.

On February 12, 2012, David Chase Taylor of Truther.org broke the story that Alex Jones was likely an intelligence tool for STRATFOR, a private Zionist intelligence agency located in Austin, Texas. As detailed in the original article (see below), STRATFOR admits to being an intelligence gathering center and therefore it stands to reason that Alex Jones and his affiliates of Inforwars  and PrisonPlanet have likely been gathering intelligence, data and info on patriotic Americans since 1996, coincidently the exact same year that STRATFOR was founded.

“You don’t know who’s good or bad until you get to that crisis point.” ~Alex Jones, October 14, 2011

Just three days after Taylor’s original article entitled “Is Alex Jones A STRATFOR Double Agent?” was published, Alex Jones abruptly canceled his nationwide speaking tour without a reason except that “the collapse is so imminent”. Jones went on to attack the links between himself and STRATFOR by stating that he started his radio broadcast in 1995 and that was indeed self-made.


On the February 15, 2012, edition of the Alex Jones Show, Jones stated that HE WILL attend the first two scheduled speaking tour dates in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday, February 19, 2012 (7:00 PM) and in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, February 26, 2012 (7:00 PM), but that HE WILL NOT be traveling and speaking throughout America as previously planned.

Clearly Jones has been made as a traitorous spy and is running scared. Revelation of Jones’ ties to Israeli intelligence should come as no surprise since Jones has not and will not reveal the true Zionist control of America.


BREAKING NEWS UPDATE:

The Bogus Infowars News Story

On February 29, 2012, the exact same day the story regarding Jones and STRATFOR became and internet sensation, Alex Jones and Infowars released a new news story, with the words “STRATFOR” and “Israel” in the title of the story. The only problem with the Infowars story was that it was old news from November 13, 2011, packaged as new news for February 29, 2012.

The bogus Infowars news article was a calculated move by Alex Jones and his Infowars crew to muddy the waters in regards to the information linking Jones to STRATFOR. By creating a bogus news story with two key search terms in the headline, people searching online for information regarding Jones and STRATFOR would be led astray.

The bogus story by Infowars is now being carried by hundreds if not thousands of alternative news websites. Although the pathetic attempt by Jones did not work, as evidenced by the 3,000 plus websites currently carrying the Jones STRATFOR story, the fact that Alex Jones and Infowars published a bogus story shows they are in fact trying to block the story.

If the allegations linking Jones to STRATFOR were not true, why would they try to cover it up?

Is Alex Jones A STRATFOR Double Agent?”

February 12, 2012 Truther.org

Now that Alex Jones has been exposed as a potential STRATFOR intelligence operative, his upcoming speaking tour may provide security challenges for the Shin Bet security team that is likely responsible for keeping him safe.

Alex Jones of Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com has long been accused of being many things; namely: a CIA agent, a Mossad agent, or a Jesuit priest. While his true identity and political allegiance has been secret for many years, his time as the defunct leader of the 9/11 Truth movement is about to come to an end.

Based on the following evidence, Alex Jones is likely a STRATFOR (Strategic Forecasting, Inc.) double intelligence agent. This conclusion is based on the following data and research which should leave little doubt that Alex Jones has been built up over the last decade to prematurely ejaculate the 2nd American Revolution, disrupt genuine political movements, and gather intelligence on American citizens.

End Game

Alex Jones’ film “End Game” appears to be the cover for Operation Endgame, a “2003-2012 plan under implementation by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain and deport all removable aliens and “suspected terrorists” currently living in the United States by 2012″. Based on f0llowing evidence and behavior history of Jones, it is highly likely that he is part of this operation.


Austin, Texas

The city of Austin is the capital of Texas and home to both STRATFOR and Alex Jones. The city also boasts other political intelligence operatives; namely: Karl Rove, top Republican Strategist, Steven Jackson, founder of the Illuminati card game, Jehmu Green, founder of Rock the Vote, and Silona Bonewald, founder of the League of Technical Voters. Austin is located only 199 miles away from Lake Jackson, Texas, which is home to U.S. Congressman and 2012 U.S. Presidential candidate Ron Paul. Needless to say, Austin represents a majority of the Republican/Right Wing power structure in America.


Founded in 1996

A global intelligence company, Strategic Forecasting, Inc., also known as STRATFOR, was founded in 1996 in Austin, Texas, by George Friedman. Alex Jones’ career was also founded in 1996 when he began his radio career with a public-access television cable TV program, but was quickly promoted and hired on at KJFK in Austin hosting a show entitled “The Final Edition”.

Apples & Oranges?

Prior to STRATFOR’s alleged hacking incident on December 24, 2011, the following data and information was present on the STRATFOR website. When compared, there is little doubt that STRATFOR and Alex Jones’ Infowars and PrisonPlanet are indeed one and the same:

STRATFORE WEBITE: “STRATFOR’s global team of intelligence professionals provides an audience of decision-makers and sophisticated news consumers in the U.S. and around the world with unique insights into political, economic, and military developments. The company uses human intelligence and other sources combined with powerful analysis based on geopolitics to produce penetrating explanations of world events.

STRATFORE WEBITE: STRATFOR delivers critical intelligence and perspective through:
  1. Situation Reports: Snapshots of global breaking news
  2. Analysis: Daily reports that assess key world events and their significance
  3. Quarterly & Annual Forecasts: Rigorous predictions of what will happen next
  4. Multimedia: Engaging videos and information-rich interactive maps
  5. Intelligence Guidance: Internal memos that guide STRATFOR staff in their intelligence-gathering operations in the immediate days ahead
Currently STRATFOR’s products are oriented around individual subscriptions, of which the “Premium” product is the most comprehensive in content offered. Some of STRATFOR’s work remains available free to the public. STRATFOR has some products available to the public including private briefings, corporate memberships, a publishing business that includes written and multimedia analysis and an iPhone application.

The Oranges

Alex Jones and his team of reporters, writers, and producers routinely schedule, host and quote former and current intelligence officials such as Dr. Steve Pechenik (DOD), Wayne Madsen (NSA), Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer (Senior Fellow at the Center for Advanced Defense Studies), David MacMichael (CIA), Ray McGovern (CIA), and James Wesley Rawles (ARMY Intelligence) just to name a few. These intelligence operatives provide Alex Jones’ listeners with unique insights into political, economic, and military developments. Alex Jones and Infowars use live reporting, websites, podcasts, video streams, videos, books, iPhone applications and a host of other media to attempt to explain and make understood world events.


Alex Jones & Infowars delivers critical intelligence and perspective through:
  1. Situation Reports: Snapshots of global breaking news (Nationwide Reporting- Nightly News)
  2. Analysis: Daily reports that assess key world events and their significance (Daily Radio Show)
  3. Forecasts: Rigorous predictions of what will happen next (Forecasting – Gerald Celente)
  4. Multimedia: Engaging videos and information-rich interactive maps (Movies, Videos, Websites)
  5. Intelligence Guidance: (Internal memos likely guide INFOWARS staff in their intelligence-gathering operations as they database addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses)
Alex Jones’ main product is merchandise in the way of DVD’s, books, stickers and clothing, but customers can obtain the “premium” Prison Planet TV membership which allows unfettered access to all of Alex Jones’ films, interviews and broadcasts in high quality. Alex Jones’ daily radio show, website and iPhone application remain free to the public.

People in High Places

According to STRATFOR, the company’s publicity list includes Fortune 500 companies and international government agencies, although their client list is allegedly confidential. Like STRATFOR, Alex Jones’ publicity list includes celebs like Charlie Sheen, Willie Nelson, Jesse Ventura and Joe Rogan, as well as a number of other “elite” individuals within government, intelligence, Hollywood, and the corporate world. How and why Jones is so deeply connected to the “elite” despite being a “conspiracy theorist” is a mystery and quite baffling unless he is indeed part of an intelligence network.

9/11 Predictions


In the days before and on 9/11, both STRATFOR and Alex Jones were making predictions about what was going to happen and who would be allegedly responsible. According Wikipedia, STRATFOR has a connection to the 9/11 attacks: “At the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, STRATFOR made its “breaking news” paragraphs, as well as some notable analyses predicting likely actions to be taken by al-Qaeda and the Bush administration, available freely to the public.

According to Alex Jones himself, he predicted 9/11 and the Anthrax attacks that followed. Jones’ information and insight is also free to the public. Clearly, there is some sort of an intelligence connection at play. STRATFOR, a Zionist intelligence operation, obviously knew of the impending 9/11 attacks which were carried out by the Israeli Mossad. Jones job has been to make 9/11 an “Inside Job”, thus putting the blame squarely on the American government and it’s people rather than the Israeli Mossad where it belongs. Jone’s numerous and baseless terror predictions such as an impending bioterror attack is likely coming from STRATFOR and the Mossad intelligence networks.
Zionism

STRATFOR was founded by Dr. George Friedman, an admitted Zionist. In an interview, Friedman was asked the following: “Does being Jewish affect the way you view the world, I begin. “Being Jewish keeps things in perspective,” he says, smiling. “We lost two temples.” Alex Jones’ repeated denials and lies in regards to Zionism clearly indicate that he is a Zionist tool. Aside being married to an Israeli, Jones has purposely lied and deceived his audience about the real Zionist threat to America.

Conclusion

Clearly Alex Jones and his likely employer STRATFOR have ulterior and devious motives when it comes to the 9/11 Truth movement and the future of America. Exposing Jones and his partners in crime is the first step towards getting a real and independent investigation into 9/11 and saving America from is rapid free-fall.

Alex Jones previously attempted to bait the American public into a full-blown riot on the eve of Y2K (December 31, 1999) by repeatedly stating that the Russians had nuked the United States. Jones’ traitorous actions were to be repeated on February 6, 2011, when a thermonuclear weapon was to be detonated at Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas. David Chase Taylor’s free ebook entitled The Nuclear Bible was published 10 days prior on January 28, 2011, in an attempt to stop the impending false-flag nuclear attack.

Overwhelming direct and circumstantial evidence has now surfaced in the aftermath of the failed Super Bowl plot which unequivocally shows that Taylor’s actions did indeed stop, or at least postpone, a Zionist nuclear terror attack upon America. Jones was set to blame the U.S. government in the aftermath of the attack in a calculated attempt to goat Americans into an armed response, despite the fact that Pakistan has been set up over the last 25 years as the scapegoat of nuclear terror.
Humanity, namely America, is waking up. Had a nuke gone off in Texas that Sunday night, riots, martial law, and an armed revolution would have likely ensued. Alex Jones’ job is to make sure that happens.

We are in an information war. While 90% of what Alex Jones says is true, it’s the 10% he is omitting that is going to end up damning America. Exposing the one and only Alex Jones as a potential STRATFOR double agent is paramount and the first step into exposing the truth behind the truth movement.

Please do your part. Namaste.

More on STATFOR

The following is an excerpt from an article entitled “McStrategy”:

How would you like to tap into an exclusive private intelligence service staffed by ex-CIA analysts who glean exclusive information from shadowy sources, cross-grid raw intel to detect relevant patterns, and alert you by email when the product requires your attention?

Welcome to Stratfor, the brainchild of George Friedman, a Texas academic and sometime U.S. government consultant, who became an intelligence entrepreneur and runs what the press routinely calls “a private CIA” out of an office building in downtown Austin.

Friedman’s private CIA, for that matter, isn’t much different from the official version.

The comparisons of Stratfor with the CIA are not entirely off-base. By main force and superior salesmanship, George Friedman has managed to replicate the key features of the intelligence establishment on a private footing.

Prior to STRATFOR’s alleged hacking incident on December 24, 2011, the following FAQ data and information was present on the STRATFOR website:

What is STRATFOR’s political orientation?

STRATFOR is rigorously non-partisan and non-ideological. We are privately-owned, not affiliated with any government or non-governmental agency. We are an objective intelligence service, providing information about what has happened or will happen, not what should happen. We make no policy prescriptions or advocacy statements.

What’s the difference between “news” and “intelligence”?

News is a commodity that you can get anywhere on the Internet. Intelligence today is what’s going to be news tomorrow.

STRATFOR provides three types of intelligence products:

Situational Awareness – Situational Awareness is knowing what matters, and an intelligence professional’s responsibility – STRATFOR’s responsibility – is to keep you apprised of what matters without wasting your time with clutter. We provide near real-time developments from street revolutionary movements and military invasions. OJ’s latest arrest and mudslinging in Washington and Brussels don’t make the cut.

Analyses – STRATFOR tells its Members what events in the world actually mean. We also tell you when events are much ado about nothing. Oftentimes the seemingly momentous is geopolitically irrelevant and vice versa. We discern what’s important objectively – without ideology, a partisan agenda, or a policy prescription.

Forecasts – Knowing what happened yesterday is helpful; knowing what’s going to happen tomorrow is critical. STRATFOR’s intelligence team makes definitive calls about what’s next. These aren’t opinions about what should happen; they’re analytically rigorous predictions of what will happen.

THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE IN ONE PHOTO

Saturday, February 22, 2014
 
policestate-pamnickelz
This picture is just another street in Anytown, U.S.A.

While it isn’t openly violent — it doesn’t, say, depict cops beating a man to death, as in the case of Kelly Thomas, the schizophrenic homeless man who begged for his father as cops continued to beat on him until he died without any repercussions — it does depict something else: a police state.

What you see in this picture is a man merely walking on the sidewalk. There he is, on the left. He was just walking. Just minding his own business, according to the witness who sent me the picture. He had walked on the grass a bit, but as you can see, the sidewalk is curvy and the grass is a public space.

Two motorcycle riding cops (because it took two) decided to stop what they were doing to tell this man to stay on the sidewalk and keep walking according to a witness. As you can see, cop one is pointing at the man while cop two watches.

In other words, it took two cops to stop and order a man around who was…just walking on a sidewalk in America.

Because this is…keeping order? ‘Protecting and serving?’

Because these officers didn’t have anything better to do…?

Or is it because we have a totally imbalanced justice system ruling the day in a country with militarized police where more people are put in prison per capita than any other place on the face of the earth and the majority are for non-violent crimes?

Is there a crime even happening in this picture? 

Seriously.

Is there even a code for this?? What you are looking at isn’t even jaywalking.

What you are looking at is a grown man minding his own business just trying to walk down an American sidewalk.

This picture encapsulates something that has gone very, very wrong in this country today.

This picture captured the modern American police state.

(H/T Pam Nickel T for taking and sending this picture.
