Donald Trump occasionally utters unspeakable truths. In March 2018 he called Bush Jr.’s decision to invade Iraq “the worst single mistake in US history.” Earlier, Trump had said that Bush should have been impeached for launching that disastrous war. Yet on January 2 2020 Trump made a much bigger mistake: He launched all-out war with... Read More

Less than a month after 9/11, Pentagon official Michael Maloof was called to Douglas Feith’s office to work with David Wurmsur on the Counter Terrorism Evaluation Group project aligned with then-SecDef Paul Wolfowitz and VP Dick Cheney’s office: Since Graeme MacQueen’s research has shown that those who orchestrated 9/11 had pre-sheep-dipped the alleged hijackers in... Listen
Ron Unz, publisher of the Unz Review and author of the critically important American Pravda series of articles, has argued that the truth movement ought to recognize that its primary enemy is the mainstream media—and strategically work to discredit it by “swarming” its weakest links with alternative perspectives. Rather than limiting themselves to one or... Listen

Thomas Kimmel vs. Webster Tarpley
Introduction It has been roughly one human lifetime since the United States of America underwent a cataclysmic transformation. December 7, 2019 marks the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor—the event that turned the United States from a constitutional republic into a globe-straddling empire, which today deploys more than 900 military bases in...

Novelist Walt Gragg just published The Chosen One, a new apocalyptic Mideast war novel. It envisions a US war against a self-styled Mahdi’s military attempt to unite the Arab world under an Islamic theocracy. Gragg’s take on Islamic eschatology is, to say the least, problematic: “For fourteen hundred years the prophecy had remained unfulfilled. Islam... Listen
“All over the world people are rising up!” That’s the superficial view of protesting crowds in the streets in Hong Kong, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Bolivia, Spain, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, France, and elsewhere. But are all these situations identical? Is it always the same story: People angered by economic issues, protesting against governmental corruption?... Listen

Craig McKee of Truth and Shadows discusses the question of what really happened to the Pentagon on 9/11.

Listen
Dr. Cynthia McKinney got elected to Congress six times—and soon found herself under attack by the Israel lobby when she refused to sign the “pledge of allegiance to Israel” demanded of all representatives! The Lobby was able to eject Rep. McKinney from Congress twice, once in 2002 and again in 2006, by fabricating a primary... Listen
Seattle human rights activist Javed Sikander discusses the continuing crisis over Kashmir, where Modi’s attempted annexation could set off World War III.

Listen
First half hour: Donald Trump says the purpose of the US military is to defend our borders—not police the world. If he really believes that, he should slash military spending at least 50%!

First hour: Radio host, journalist and publisher Dave Gahary was featured today in a CBS News Good Morning report on the Wisconsin court decision ordering Jim Fetzer to pay Lenny Pozner $450,000 in libel damages.

(Watch the 7/7 video Kollerstrom and Farrell Are Dead.) *Breaking the Spell, which... Listen

Listen
David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people…like The Washington Post‘s passive-aggressive book reviewer Ron Charles, who brags, shedding crocodile tears all the while: “I banned a book. Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year.” When Charles saw that Barnes... Listen
Structural engineer Dr. Ibrahim Soudy says the new University of Alaska study of the 9/11 “collapse” of WTC-7 proves beyond any doubt that the official story is a pack of lies, and that Building 7 was destroyed by controlled demolition.

As the 18th anniversary of 9/11 approached, the arrest and alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein made headlines—and raised questions about the credibility of official narratives. As Eric Rasmusen writes: “Everybody, it seems, in New York society knew by 2000 that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were corrupting teenage girls, but the press wouldn’t cover it.”...

US Army Major General Dana Pittard and US Air Force Master Sergeant Wes Bryant are co-authors of the brand-new military memoir Hunting the Caliphate: America’s War on ISIS and the Dawn of the Strike Cell.

Is the mainstream mind-control machine starting to worry about Marianne Williamson? Boston Globe: “It’s a very good bet Williamson won’t win the nomination.

First hour: J. Michael Springmann is an attorney and former State Department official whose bizarre experiences at his post in Saudi Arabia are recounted in Visas for al-Qaeda: CIA Handouts that Rocked the World.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
