Deal of the Century is a 1983 Hollywood comedy about crooked arms dealers conspiring to peddle new weapons that “allow for localized and conventional wars that will keep (the global arms industry’s) business viable into the next century.” Thirty-five years later, a non-fictional crooked businessman, Jared Kushner, has borrowed the title for his so-called Middle...

First six minutes: Monologue on my recent trip to Malaysia. Final 45 minutes: Richie Allen interviews me on the trip, as well as related topics. Was it just a coincidence that after Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s war crimes tribunals convicted Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz of war crimes, and Israel of genocide, Malaysian planes started mysteriously...

The Obscenity of Jewish Power
I recently received an email from Code Pink: “Dunk the ball for Palestinian rights?” That is not exactly the world’s catchiest protest chant. No rhyme or alliteration, the meter doesn’t scan, and the image that comes to mind is…what, exactly? Kawhi Leonard stealing Larry Tennenbaum’s head right off his neck and slamming it through the...

Since my last two Press TV interviews have been disrupted by “Abnormal Interference” I thought I’d better archive some Press TV material in case the whole network gets disabled. (I understand the US Deep State is working on a plan to tangle up Press TV’s transmitters in John Bolton’s mustache.) The first segment is my... Listen
Will Trump’s organized crime activity be buried by a bipartisan coverup? International Affairs professor Michael Brenner writes: “Mueller supposedly has forwarded some material to federal and New York State prosecutors who have clear legal authority in those domains. It has been known for at least two years, though, that substantial grounds (and evidence) already existed... Listen

During the past few decades an intellectual movement has arisen out of the ruins of what once passed for Western civilization. As the great narrative of secular humanism, materialism, and progress collapsed—its obituary was published by Lyotard as The Postmodern Condition—an odd constellation of nationalist and traditionalist thinking began shaking the foundations of Western intellectual...

“Nuclear blackmail! America’s iconic symbols attacked! The nation is terrorized again. Not only that, but it emerges that one of the terrorists is still on the loose…” That’s from the publicity for Philip Kraske‘s excellent new novel 11/9 and the Terrorist Who Loved Bansai Trees. It’s a great read—and one of the most plausible fictional... Listen

At the beginning of 2002, just a few months after 9/11, Thierry Meyssan wrote the biggest blockbuster in French publishing history, L’Effrayeuse imposture. Meyssan convinced French president Chirac, and the whole Muslim world, that 9/11 was a fraud. His book was the most important single factor leading to France’s refusal to join the US war... Listen
First hour: Washington, DC based pastor and activist Dr. Randy Short comments on the War on Religion—including the wave of apparent false flags targeting houses of worship.

Is the Anglo-Zionist Empire on its way out? If so, what comes next? Whistleblowing ex-World Bank economist Peter Koenig joins us to ponder such questions—and to parse details including the possible implosion of NATO, China’s arrival in Europe and eventual victory over the US, Pompeo and Bolton’s farcical attempt to stop Iran from exporting oil,...

Sri Lankan Massacre Part of the Same Terror Campaign?
In 1988 and 1989 I lived in the heart of Paris, on Boulevard Henri IV just a few minutes’ walk from the Notre Dame cathedral—the best known and most-visited Catholic monument this side of St. Peter’s Square. Dedicated to the Holy Virgin Mary, beloved by both Christians and Muslims, Notre Dame is a product and... Read More
First hour: Australian NWO researcher Peter Myers writes of the tragic Notre Dame fire (and the simultaneous al-Aqsa fire, along with the earlier St. Sulpice fire and wave of attacks on French churches): “Consider the possibility that some of these are False Flag attacks like 911. Certain interests want Christians & Moslems to fight each... Listen
First half hour: Dr. Ridgley Abdul-Mumin Muhammad of the Nation of Islam Research Group (NOIRG) discusses the pushback they received for pointing out that Ilhan Omar was right: “Some people did something” on 9/11. But which people did what, and why? The Daily Caller article Farrakhan Group Invokes 9/11 Conspiracy Theories To Defend Omar exemplifies... Listen

Who’s afraid of Alan Sabrosky? Whoever they are, they have the ability to monitor and censor YouTube live-streams in real time. And they apparently don’t want you to know what Sabrosky thinks about the Holocaust. That’s the obvious takeaway from the highly unusual example of YouTube censorship that disrupted the March 22 live broadcast of... Read More
Every year Rick Shaddock of ANETA.org tries to find a qualified physicist to defend the official story of what happened to the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001. And every year he fails. So we always have a rather one-sided “debate.” This year the winner of the 9/11 Physics Debate was Dr. Crockett Grabbe. Debate Resolution:... Listen

Rep. Ilhan Omar equivocally-unequivocally apologized for tweeting that Zionist power was “all about the Benjamins.” A few weeks later, she didn’t apologize at all for suggesting that American congressional representatives shouldn’t have to swear loyalty oaths to Israel. But Rep. Omar did in fact issue one genuinely unequivocal apology. It involved this 2012 tweet: “It’s... Read More

(Barbara, though... Listen

Some people just can’t handle the truth. Case in point: America’s Jewish Establishment and the Shabbat goys on their payroll, who are all squealing like stuck pigs in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s pointed remarks about Jewish-Zionist power. I wrote about Rep. Omar’s first (February 10) Twitter outrage in the new issue of Crescent Magazine:... Read More

The world slipped closer to nuclear war. Big false flags—actual, suspected, and anticipated—were a key factor. But hardly anybody noticed. Everyone was riveted by the story of actor Jussie Smollet, who supposedly paid a couple of Nigerian-American bodybuilders for a staged racist-homophobic near-lynching. The ostensible motive: Add a zero to Smollet’s pathetic little million-a-year salary.... Read More

Questioning the USG/NYT official story on Marzieh Hashemi, Monica Witt, New Horizon…and yours truly
It wasn’t the first time I’ve been prominently libeled in The New York Times. Nor was it the worst. Compared to Stanley Fish’s grotesquely mendacious 2006 op-ed trashing me for something I never did—advocating 9/11 truth in the classroom[1]—Alan Blinder, Julie Turkewitz and Adam Goldman treated me fairly well on today’s Sunday NYT front page...

The Justice (sic) Department just charged US military whistleblower Monica Witt with spying for Iran—and sanctioned the Iranian NGO New Horizons. The charges against Witt allege that Press TV news anchor Marzieh Hashemi is in the business of recruiting spies, and was somehow responsible for Monica Witt’s decision to move to Iran. Yet not a...

J. Michael “Mike” Springmann, author of Visas for al-Qaeda, attended the New Horizons Conference in Mashhad, Iran, last May.

Can journalists with competence and integrity get published in the mainstream? It does happen occasionally. A prime example is Eric Margolis, whose official bio reads: “Eric S.
