In a news blitz, Alex discusses the blunt statements of trader Alessio Rastani, who told the BBC that a larger collapse is coming, adding that Goldman Sachs ‘rules the world’ and cares nothing about the interests of ordinary people.
In the deadliest day of the almost decade-long war in Afghanistan roughly 30 members of the American Special Forces, most of which belonged to the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, were killed in a Taliban rocket attack.
Following our exposé of potential Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry’s globalist leanings, several neo-con news outlets reacted with a mixture of contempt, fury and in one case, outright frothing idiocy, by claiming that Alex Jones and Infowars were fully paid-up propagandists for the Obama 2012 re-election campaign.
After pressure groups forced an about-turn, similar to Perry’s hand being forced with the TSA grope-down bill, the Governor had to abandon his previous support for turning Texas into a sanctuary state for illegal aliens. For the numerous neo-con blogs that accused us of inventing the fact that Perry supported sanctuary cities, watch this 2003 clip of Mexican President Vicente Fox publicly thanking Rick Perry for signing legislation that would give illegal aliens from Mexico free instate tuition at the Texas state college of their choice.
In revealing Perry to be a globalist posing as a down-home conservative, we rankled a lot of neo-cons who have bought into the myth that Perry is a genuine Tea Party-style all American, a man who offers a genuine alternative to Obama.
However, by far the most hilarious response came from Tom McGregor of the Dallas Blog, who assertively accused this writer and Infowars in general of being a fully paid-up Obama propaganda front bankrolled to invent “conspiracy theories” about Rick Perry in order to derail his presumptive presidential campaign by preventing Tea Party supporters from voting for him in the Republican primaries.
Claiming that Obama had used part of his $1 billion dollar campaign war chest to “finance creative methods to attack GOP presidential contenders,” by characterizing Perry as a “so-called puppet of a leftist globalist community that is intent on one world government,” McGregor went on to write that our article was an “Obama-instigated conspiracy theory” written by myself, who McGregor labeled, “Obama’s conspiracy theorist writer, Mr. Watson”.
McGregor concludes his piece by giving Obama credit for “taking a creative approach to attacking his opponents,” by funding the likes of Infowars to go after Perry.
This is easily the funniest and yet most lame hit piece we have ever had the pleasure to respond to.
A brief perusal of the Dallas Blog website confirms that it is little more than an advert for Perry’s presumptive presidential campaign, carrying several positive stories about the Governor.
McGregor’s confident assertion that I am a paid propagandist working for the Obama election campaign was somewhat contradicted 48 hours later when I wrote a piece calling Obama a “murderer” and a baby killer for overseeing an unconstitutional war in Libya that recently led to the deaths of five toddlers, images of which were graphically displayed in a disturbing video that I embedded in the article.
Some people might think directly labeling Obama a baby killer was a tad too strong, but I don’t think anyone could have taken it as evidence that Obama is paying me to bolster his campaign to recapture the Oval Office in 2012.
The unrepentant fallaciousness of McGregor’s hit piece almost makes it look like a satire, but the article is genuine.
While accusing us of inventing “conspiracy theories” about Perry that are in fact manifestly provable and documented, myopic neo-cons who have thrown their weight behind Perry’s carefully cultivated yet deceptive image as a grass-roots conservative by smearing his opponents with their own gratuitous conspiracy theories, have revealed themselves to be the most gullible and naive bunch of all.
A newly leaked U.S. diplomatic cable originally written over six years ago confirms that the agenda to merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into an integrated North American Union has been ongoing for years, debunking claims made consistently by the corporate media and establishment talking heads that the NAU is a baseless “conspiracy theory”.
“The cable, released through the WikiLeaks website and apparently written Jan. 28, 2005, discusses some of the obstacles surrounding the merger of the economies of Canada, the United States and Mexico in a fashion similar to the European Union,” reports the National Post.
“An incremental and pragmatic package of tasks for a new North American Initiative (NAI) will likely gain the most support among Canadian policymakers,” the document said. “The economic payoff of the prospective North American initiative … is available, but its size and timing are unpredictable, so it should not be oversold.”
While serving to confirm the agenda to integrate the United States, Mexico and Canada into an EU-style political and monetary union, the Wikileaks cable will come as no surprise to those who watched Alex Jones’ 2006 documentary Endgame, in which precisely the same information was outlined, with particular focus on the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or SPP meetings.
Despite the manifestly provable factual basis of the matter, during the 2008 presidential election the establishment media attempted to smear Ron Paul by attributing the notion of a move towards a North American Union to him and then claiming it was a non-existent “conspiracy theory,” when the veracity of the issue was readily documented from the very start.
A Newsweek hit piece subsequently claimed that Ron Paul’s concerns over a NAFTA superhighway, a North American Union or a regional currency were completely baseless, and yet the newly leaked cable states U.S. diplomats were busy discussing a “move forward with continental integration, including a possible common currency, labour markets, international trade and the borders of the three countries,” as well as “easier access across the U.S. border,” more than six years ago.
Watch a clip from the 2006 documentary Endgame in which the agenda behind the North American Union was exposed, even as the corporate media still claimed it was a mythical conspiracy theory.

Reporter Alex Kerr says it is “absolutely baffling” that the Japanese governemnt has not expanded the evacuation zone around Fukushima, adding that he can only assume they are “unwilling to accept reality” and are attempting to save face.
While the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has workers on the ground at the facility taking readings, some of whom are thought to only now have hours to live due to radiation exposure, the NISA still maintains that the levels of radiation are too high and that there must be some “mistake”.
TEPCO announced late yesterday that levels of radiation had been recorded in groundwater at TEN THOUSAND times higher than standard safety limits.
The findings have raised fears that underground waterways and drinking water supplies could become contaminated.
Earlier this week, the company also recorded dangerously high levels of radiation in seawater, soil and air concentrations.
Elevated levels of radiation have also now been found in beef, as well as vegetables, milk and other food stuffs in the vicinity of the plant.
Despite the findings, officials maintain that there is little risk to public health, repeating ad infinitum that the radiation will “dissipate”.
“We have suspected their isotope analysis, and we will wait for the new results,” said Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the Japanese safety agency, adding that the agency thinks TEPCO’s numbers may be too high.
In response TEPCO has said that it is possible that there may be an error in the computer program used to analyze the data, however the company also says it is equally possible that their readings are indeed accurate.
TEPCO has been routinely pressured to downgrade it’s findings since the crisis began on March 11.
Last Sunday officials retracted an announcement that radiation levels in the containment building of reactor number 2 had soared to 10 million times above normal.
The retraction came hours after the initial announcement, however, and was corrected to 100,000 times over normal.
It was not made clear what the error was, with TEPCO reporting on its website there was a “mistake in the assessment of the measurement of iodine-134.”
With the discovery of three different types of plutonium in the soil this week, some experts believe that reactor 3 has been in full meltdown ever since it was hit with a massive explosion on March 14th, and that the Japanese authorities are withholding details of the true extent of the crisis.
In a special video address, Alex Jones terms the al Qaeda intelligence operation a ‘Swiss army knife’ for destabilization. Simply put, it is a tool to foment crisis that allows the globalists to offer up a solution in variable contexts.
Today, ‘freelancers‘ in Libya; yesterday, terrorists in the ‘War on Terror.’ Before that, allies against Serbia; in the 80s, Freedom Fighters. The shadowy enemy supposedly run by Osama bin Laden and top jihadists like Anwar al-Awlaki is really an extension of U.S. foreign policy and the Pentagon. Al Qaeda shifts across the geopolitical chessboard at the will of its masters in the allied-international intelligence ring. It is perhaps government’s greatest hoax… but the tactic is one of the oldest tricks in the book for any power-seeking State.
Alex expanded on his Russia Today rant where he covered this topic.
However, the Pentagon-run al Qaeda hoax has deeper history than can be covered in just a few minutes of airtime.
CRIMESTOP: CREATE THE ENEMY, FOOL THE PUBLIC
As we cover some of the highlights of al Qaeda’s duplicitous history, consider these conflicting statements from two U.S. Presidents about the Taliban / al Qaeda (albeit from different points in time):
“They hate our freedoms — our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.”
– George W. Bush, Address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American People, September 20, 2001
“These (Taliban) gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s Founding Fathers.”
— Ronald Wilson Reagan in 1985 while introducing the Mujahideen leaders to media on the White House lawn.
The answer to the contradiction is learning to embrace the deception as truth, whenever the State says to do so, just as Winston Smith finally “learns” in 1984– when he is compelled to find that 2+2=5. His torturer, O’Brien, tells him ‘You are a slow learner, Winston.’
‘How can I help it?’ [Winston] blubbered. ‘How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.’
‘Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.’
Karl Rove, a key architect of the Bush Administration, known glowingly as “Bush’s Brain”, chastised reporters in 2002 who tried to appeal to the “reality-based community” in the face of a President who, according to Ron Suskind of the NY Times expressed to high level members of Congress, aides and the like that he didn’t need the facts:
The aide [Rove] said that guys like me were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. [Rove] cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Unbeknownst to the media at that time, Rove was operating on behalf of a government that was not only arrogant, but had taken a page directly out of George Orwell’s 1984. America’s enemy Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda were remarkably like Emmanuel Goldstein, arch-villain of Oceania in 1984. Goldstein [or bin Laden] was “commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of conspirators dedicated to the overthrow of the State.” An enemy that couldn’t be found, killed or slowed from influencing new conspirators at every turn. “Somewhere or other,” Orwell wrote, “he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies.”
“Goldstein was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party — an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling that other people, less level-headed than oneself, might be taken in by it… Goldstein produced fear and anger automatically. He was an object of hatred more constant than either Eurasia or Eastasia, since when Oceania was at war with one of these Powers it was generally at peace with the other. But what was strange was that although Goldstein was hated and despised by everybody… his influence never seemed to grow less.”
In 1984, it was rumored that Goldstein, whereabouts unknown, might even be taking refuge somewhere within their own superstate itself; consequently, “a day never passed when spies and saboteurs acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Thought Police.” In contemporary America, the Department of Homeland Security now takes that possibility as its directive, screening and searching ordinary people everywhere in search of shadowy al Qaeda or “homegrown terrorists.” Just as in 1984, children were trained to be spies to rat out suspicious adults.
Behind the hoax contrived to control party members and maintain power, Winston’s torturer and member of the inner-party, O’Brien, confessed that he had personally taken part in writing Goldstein’s outlawed book– a lie to serve the State. It was necessary for the controlling party to create a living myth that portrayed Goldstein as a classic, evasive “external enemy“. The utility of the external enemy has been noted by many, including the Club of Rome, who wrote in 1991 that “Humans only truly unite when faced with a powerful external enemy…At this time a new enemy must be found, one either real or invented for the purpose.” Henry Kissinger likewise quipped at Bilderberg in 1991 that the United Nations might seize upon an “outside threat from beyond” to unite the peoples of the world.
Thus, the steady diet of propaganda, including the two-minutes hate that daily featured new installments of Goldstein’s crimes and heresies. In 1984, Goldstein was:
“almost on a level with Big Brother himself, and then had engaged in counter-revolutionary activities, had been condemned to death, and had mysteriously escaped and disappeared. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor.”
O’Brien proclaimed during Winston’s torturous re-education sessions that: “Goldstein and his heresies will live for ever. Every day, at every moment, they will be defeated, discredited, ridiculed, spat upon and yet they will always survive.” Bin Laden has been patently the same archetypal enemy– despite being wanted dead or alive (Bush, Sept. 18, 2001), armies can’t find him [TIME 2002] after a decade.
Admittedly fake videos with bad look-alikes and audio recordings supposedly sent by bin Laden surfaced routinely just before elections (Tom Ridge later admitted that terror threats were elevated to help Bush’s re-election bid) or when the American people needed a reminder of the threat of terror. Prior to the admissions, analysts correctly suspected that al Qaeda video logos matched the signature of the CIA-linked Intel Center, revealing an unholy connection at the source of the video-taped threats. Despite the fact that bin Laden had reportedly died and had been in the hospital on kidney dialysis in 2001, Osama bin Laden remained a nearly-omnipotent villain in Bush Administration communiques. His survival as the external enemy, like Goldstein, was almost guaranteed because it empowered the State’s official fairytale and enabled action on wide-ranging controversial policies with little scrutiny. Ultimately, in 1984, Goldstein is of no material relevance; his real purpose is to induce submission to the party-led Oligarchical Collectivist State.
DOUBLETHINK: AL QAEDA THE ALLY, AL QAEDA THE ENEMY
Back in 1979, al Qaeda, in the form of the Mujahideen / Taliban, were America’s secret weapon in Operation Cyclone. It was geopolitical strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski, then National Security Advisor under Carter, who schemed to draw the Soviet Union into a trap that might bleed them dry. [Declassified documents authorizing action A / B]
Brzezinski gave an interview to France’s Le Nouvel Observateur in 1998, unapologetic about their covert aid the Mujahadeen six months before the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Here is a segment of that interview:
Q: You don’t regret anything today? Brzezinski:Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire. Q:And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic [integrisme], having given arms and advice to future terrorists? Brzezinski:What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war? Q:Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated: Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today. Brzezinski:Nonsense!
With Serbia / former Yugoslavia still fresh in the public mind but the Pentagon-al Qaeda connection largely in the shadows, the USS Cole was bombed in October 2000 in a Yemeni port. The act of terror against the United States would be blamed on Osama bin Laden, rogue heir to the wealthy family known for their business with big Western players (like the Carlyle Group, etc.).
Nearly every major terror plot uncovered domestically has, in fact, turned out to be a contrivance by the FBI where it sets-up a sting and encourages its patsies to carry out an attack. The “close calls” on American soil since 9/11 have largely been connected to Anwar al-Awlaki, who it was revealed, dined with Pentagon brass in the months after 9/11. The Underwear Bomber who tried to blow-up a Detroit-bound plane was given VISA clearance by the State Dept. despite being on the watchlist; witnesses Kurt & Lori Haskell watched Abdulmutallab being helped on the plane by a “sharp-dressed man” who was most likely an intelligence agent. They also witnessed other suspect/patsies who were never mentioned in the mainstream media. The key questions their verified account raises may never be addressed, as the accused Abdulmutallab is attempting to represent himself in court. Hoaxes and inconsistencies have been raised around the cases of the Foot Hood shooter, the Times Square bomber and many, many others. Even Geraldo Rivera of Fox News has noted that the FBI’s pattern of sting operations are ‘bogus’.
In 2011, George Orwell’s “War is Peace” mantra is upgraded once again, as the Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama expands war into Libya under the Orwellian-guise of a “humanitarian crisis,” imposing a no-fly zone (which immediately gave way to full scale bombings and then ground forces). Americans, Westerners and the world at-large must scratch their heads once again as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan not only continue, but the West finds an unlikely ally against Col. Gaddafi in rebels made up of al Qaeda forces. The Lie has not stopped, as Western intelligence continues to wield one of its most powerful client-weapons– the al Qaeda hoax, invariably friend or foe, as the situation demands. In classic doublethink, the same week the public learns its anti-Gaddafi allies include al Qaeda, over-the-top, grandiose threats are made by mail claiming that al Qaeda has some 160 nuclear bombs buried at strategic locations across the United States; if there’s any truth at all to the claim, you can be certain the nuclear material was delivered via Western intelligence.
