DemocracyNow and the "Progressive" Alternative Media: Valued Cheerleaders For Imperialism and War

"Democracy Now" and the "Progressive" Alternative Media: Valued Cheerleaders For Imperialism and War

by Finian Cunningham

(Note: this analysis of the alternative media is of great value to 9/11 truthers, as the same misinformation or censoring of the news by the alternative media that is presented here was also accomplished concerning 9/11. And yet the alternative media always gets a pass by the progressives, because, I guess, it is seemingly antiwar. But I blame the alternative media for the fact that 9/11 truth really has never spread like it should have. It has an obligation and responsibility to present the evidence that the official story of 9/11 was a lie, and they failed, for some reason that has never been made completely clear)

The major Western mainstream media outlets have been running a “shock and awe” propaganda offensive against the Syrian government of President Bashar Al Assad for nearly 16 months. The misinformation has been unrelenting, monolithic, unverified, one-sided and, frankly, increasingly preposterous.

Middle East dispatchUS pulls the plug on Muslim websitesIslamic groups have condemned a government crackdown on a Texan telecoms company as part of a "witch-hunt", writes Brian Whitaker

Share 61 reddit this, Monday 10 September 2001 11.38 EDT Article history Five hundred websites - many of them with an Arab or Muslim connection - crashed last Wednesday when an anti-terrorism taskforce raided InfoCom Corporation in Texas.

The 80-strong taskforce that descended upon the IT company included FBI agents, Secret Service agents, Diplomatic Security agents, tax inspectors, immigration officials, customs officials, department of commerce officials and computer experts.

Three days later, they were still busy inside the building, reportedly copying every hard disc they could find. InfoCom hosts websites for numerous clients in the Middle East, including al-Jazeera (the satellite TV station), al-Sharq (a daily newspaper in Qatar), and Birzeit (the Palestinian university on the West Bank).

ACLU Sues for Records of Assassination of US Citizens

ACLU Sues for Records on Assassination of US Citizens

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit today in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, complaining that the Obama Administration failed to respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests relating to the assassinations of three US citizens in Yemen.

The ACLU condemned “the government’s self-serving attitude toward transparency,” arguing that the administration publicly and loudly releases bits of information related to the assassinations but declines to provide the full story, claiming the killings were “secret.”

The requests centered around the September 30 assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, a New Mexico-born Muslim cleric that the administration regularly claimed was a “terrorist,” as well as his teenage son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki and US citizen Samir Khan. The ACLU sought information on the process through which the Obama Administration decides who lives and who dies, as well as on the legal rationale for “kill lists.”

Michael Ruppert: Proof Obama Is Lying About the Killing of Bin Laden

Ghosts of September 11, By Mike Ruppert

Proof Obama is lying (as if we need proof!)

this is an excerpt:

Let’s start with what I consider the most-obvious proof that the Obama administration is lying. It comes from a world-class microbiologist who allowed me to use this quote on condition of anonymity. The simple proof of his accuracy is to just ask any microbiologist experienced in DNA sequencing about his statement. There are tens of thousands of them around the world.

Here is what he wrote me:

Buried at Sea?????

Are you kidding me? They buried him at sea? The most important enemy of our times and they don't bring the body back to the forensic pathologists at Walter Reed?
What a joke.

And no Americans killed? A gunfight so bad that they were unable to bring in alive the man with more information about the terrorizing network of al Qaeda than anyone alive, but nobody on our side was killed?

This is sort of funny.

Confounding lawyers and legal scholars all over the world, Judge John Walker, first cousin of former President George W. Bush, was one of three judges of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals to hear argument Tuesday in Gallop v. Cheney, Rumsfeld and Myers, the lawsuit brought by a soldier injured during the attack on the Pentagon that accuses former Vice President Dick Cheney, former secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Richard Myers of conspiring to facilitate the terrorist attacks of 9/11 that killed 3000 Americans and has resulted in the deaths of many more, due to the toxicity of the clean-up conditions at Ground Zero.

William Veale, April Gallop’s lawyer from the Center for 9/11 Justice, learning of the assignment the usual 5 days before the argument, filed a motion to disqualify Judge Walker the day before the argument.

Review of James Zogby's Arab Voices......Ignores Arab World's Ideas of Who Did 9/11

excerpt from review of book, Arab Voices:

In a major failing, Arab Voices ignores polling showing that a majority in the Arab and Muslim world has for several years proclaimed 9/11 conspiracy theories claiming that the terrorist acts were secretly perpetrated by the U.S. government, CIA and Israel's Mossad. The supposed purpose of this conspiracy and mass murder was to inculcate anti-Muslim hate in order to provide a pretext for attacking innocent Muslim countries. According to American academics, here and here, in a poll conducted in 2004 in seven Muslim countries, 78 percent of respondents said that they do not believe the 9/11 attacks were carried out by Arabs. The most popular account, in these countries is that 9/11 was the work of the U.S. or Israeli governments. This belief, inculcated by Arab media, mosques and schools, is met essentially with silence from James Zogby. Likewise, Zogby is silent about Palestinian media incitement to violence against Israelis (for examples see here, here and here).

Glenn Beck's Love-Hate Relationship With 9/11 Truthers

Glenn Beck's Love-Hate Relationship With 9-11 Truthers
March 25, 2011 10:33 am ET - by Simon Maloy

Glenn Beck has been very hard on 9-11 truthers the past couple of days. He's been beating up on one person in particular, who, as it turns out, isn't actually a truther -- Van Jones.

On Wednesday, Beck said this:

BECK: They may not know the last one, you know, because they didn't know Van Jones was a 9/11 truther, you know? I mean, should we expect the White House to distance himself from Lerner since, you know, he's plotting economic terrorism? I don't know. Maybe we should tell him he's a 9/11 truther. Maybe then they'll distance themselves.

Let me ask you this: Who is letting people in the White House? We had the 9/11 truther who I point out a bigger problem was he was a communist. And now, we got a guy who is plotting economic terrorism. Who else is going through the door of the White House?

9/11 Links, Big Money Swirl Around Newt

9-11 Links, Big Money Swirl Around Newt

By Michael Collins Piper

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich—who left office under a cloud in 1999—has pivotal political backing in elite global financial and corporate circles and can count on friendly support from the controlled media in pursuing his aspirations for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

Despite his efforts to portray himself as a “conservative” alternative to politics-as-usual, Gingrich is an unabashed New World Order internationalist and a long-standing advocate of destructive “free trade” policies and American military adventurism abroad.

As such, it is no coincidence Gingrich is a longtime member of the Rockefeller family-financed Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the New York-based affiliate of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the policy-making apparatus of the global empire of the Rothschild banking dynasty that is intricately intertwined with those predatory plutocrats on American soil who dominate the unconstitutional Federal Reserve System, the privately owned money monopoly Ron Paul has worked to bring into line. These facts about Gingrich point to where his real loyalties lie.


On Feb. 26 The Washington Post reported Gingrich has assembled a multi-level, wide-ranging political conglomerate of his own, described as “a financial empire that could prove crucial” in advancing Gingrich’s presidential ambitions. He has already raised more money than possible GOP primary opponents including Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney.

In addition, Gingrich controls an operation known as American Solutions for Winning the Future—a virtual private money machine that Gingrich uses to promote himself. The Post says this Gingrich venture has raised “more money than any other organization of its kind nationwide,” to the tune of more than $50 million, “much of it as large donations from casino, energy and banking interests.”

By far the most generous backer of Gingrich is Las Vegas-based casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson—a hardline supporter of Israel who once described himself as “the richest Jew in the world.” Adelson has given Gingrich some $6 million over the last four years.

Gingrich also has an unusual connection to Larry Silverstein, a controversial figure whose name has been in the forefront of the circumstances surrounding the cover-up of the 9-11 terrorist tragedy.

While in Congress,
