Politicians and pundits often use terrorism to promote the interests of their financiers. This fear mongering goes hand in hand with attempts at military profiteering, population control, and the concentration of political power. What many are beginning to discover is that deception is integral to the success of the terrorism business. That is, the official accounts of terrorist events are typically fraught with omissions of fact and the concealment of clues that point to the involvement of more powerful people. The success of these false accounts reveals important aspects of human nature and points to ways in which thoughtful people can help to overcome such challenges.
There will always be a few people greedy enough to lie to others for personal gain, but we can live with this. What we can’t live with is large numbers of people lying to themselves because habitual self-deception is fatal. Long-term successful lies require motivated liars but also willing listeners and when millions or billions of citizens engage in such duplicity they make it difficult, if not impossible, for anyone to survive.
Gladio B and the Battle for Eurasia
Published on Dec 2, 2014
TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: http://www.corbettreport.com/?p=12947
‘Operation Gladio B’--the continuation of the old NATO Gladio program--covers a tangled web of covert operatives, billionaire Imams, drug running, prison breaks and terror strikes. Its goal: the destabilization of Central Asia and the Caucasus. In this presentation to Studium Generale in Groningen on November 19, 2014, James Corbett lifts the lid on this operation, its covert operatives, and the secret battle for the Eurasian heartland.

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s torture report will be released “in a matter of days,” a committee staffer tells The Intercept. The report, a review of brutal CIA interrogation methods during the presidency of George W. Bush, has been the subject of a contentious back-and-forth, with U.S. intelligence agencies and the White House on one side pushing for mass redactions in the name of national security and committee staffers on the other arguing that the proposed redactions render the report unintelligible.
Should something emerge, here are some important caveats to keep in mind:
1) You’re not actually reading the torture report. You’re just reading an executive summary. The full Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on the CIA’s interrogation and detention program runs upward of 6,000 pages. The executive summary is 480 pages. So you’re missing more than 80 percent of it.

Former NFL player and current Huffington Post contributor Donte Stallworth explains how he fell down the “rabbit hole” and became a 9/11 “truther” after learning more about the history behind the terrorist attacks.
His past questions and other statements questioning the official narrative of the event became an issue earlier this year, after the online publication hired him.
Stallworth explains in a lengthy piece published Tuesday that he learned in 2008 that Osama bin Laden had been previously connected to U.S. government agents during the Soviet-Afghan war, and that knowledge led him to conspiracy theories about possible White House involvement in plotting the attacks.
Tony Szamboti Interview
Interview published 29 November 2014
MP3 and Link to Show Notes: http://themindrenewed.com/interviews/2014/590-int-67
For this important interview we welcome Tony Szamboti, mechanical engineer and 9/11 researcher, who joins us for a detailed discussion on crucial evidence that, in the words of his research group, "clearly demonstrate(s) that the reports produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) were unscientific and fraudulent."
With the group's recently-published white paper as our focus, "Areas of Specific Concern in the NIST WTC Reports" which lists 25 Points seriously challenging NIST's work in this area, we discuss striking new evidence demonstrating that NIST intentionally omitted significant structural components from its analysis of Building 7, and explore the almost inescapable conclusion that this was done in order to avoid the explanation of controlled demolition. We also discuss the potential these findings might have for legal action.

AE911Truth volunteer Dale Pierce returns to discuss his outreach efforts to firefighters, the significance of the term “rekindled”, as well as the environment of fear and silence that he’s witnessed which inhibits discussion of what really happened on 9/11 in firehouses across America. Reflecting on the experiences of his late son in Iraq, Dale also offers a message to young men and women considering joining the military in the post 9/11 world.

Hello everyone. Many thanks to Justin Keogh and the 911 Blogger team for graciously allowing me to introduce myself and my new film.
My name is Richard and I’m an independent researcher/investigator of 9-11 related topics. Like most of you on this site, I am searching for the truth behind September 11, 2001.
Opinions differ as to what actually transpired that day. People have their suspicions, but we may never know who perpetuated this crime, or why. However, I AM certain we were all told that 9/11 would happen long BEFORE the event; the evidence is overwhelming and available for anyone to see.
I’m the creator of a film called 9/11 FORETOLD. This film examines the messages embedded in the Mass Media leading up to that fateful day. This is the first full-length documentary to explore these topics. This film is not just another documentary about 9/11, nor is it a “conspiracy theory,” but attempts something much more provocative.

Several impressive developments over the last 18 months have lifted the 9/11 truth message into the mainstream news and public awareness. These developments include the Rethink911 campaign, CNN's coverage of the alternative 9/11 Museum Guide and outreach effort, Richard Gage's interview on C-SPAN, the debut of The Anatomy of a Great Deception, and the huge video billboard in Times Square depicting the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.
Now there's a new opportunity that holds great promise.

How Did This 9/11 Truth Art Make It Into The Museum?
Published on Nov 19, 2014
The National September 11th Memorial and Museum is a shrine to the official narrative, so why did they want Anthony Freda's 9/11 Truth Art?
Thomas Drake is a former senior executive with the National Security Agency, a United States Air Force and Navy veteran, CIA intelligence analyst, computer software expert and whistleblower. While at NSA, he blew the whistle on multi-billion dollar programmatic fraud, waste and abuse; the critical loss and coverup of 9/11 intelligence; government wrongdoing; and a dragnet electronic mass surveillance and data mining program conducted on a vast scale by the NSA (with the approval of the White House) after 9/11. Mr. Drake argued that this program violated and subverted the Constitution as well as individual sovereignty and privacy, while weakening national security and fundamentally eroding our civil liberties. In April 2010 he was charged by the US Department of Justice with a 10 felony count Espionage Act indictment facing 35 years in prison and declared an enemy of the state. All 10 original charges were dropped in July 2011 after Mr. Drake pled to a single misdemeanor count of exceeding the authorized use of a government computer with no fine or prison time. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ridenhour Truth Telling Prize, and with Jesselyn Radack the co-recipient of the 2011 Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence Award and the 2012 Hugh M. Hefner 1st Amendment Award.
Jeff Osborne, Nicki Minaj's latest music video director, touches on 9/11 Truth issues in statement to Billboard Magazine
In an exclusive statement, Jeff Osborne breaks down the creative process behind the video, including Young Money's brief guidelines. Read in full below:
"The reason I'm not apologizing is because neither I nor the video are anti-semitic. I can't be sorry for something I'm being falsely accused of. The video represents Young Money as a generic totalitarian regime, which takes images and symbols from several countries and time periods, one of which is Nazism. As an artist I have two voids to fill. First, meeting the demands of the client and two, creatively applying my own voice where I can. The Young Money team came to me with a set of parameters in which they exactly stated -- something black and white, dark, ominous, with hints of imagery like Sin City or Metalocalypse.
As far as applying Nazi imagery, 100% me. Whether it was interpreted that way to their team, I have no idea. Not once did we ever sit in the same room, nor did they ask if I applied a deeper hidden meaning. I simply send them the video and they reject, approve, or ask for changes.
I made this creative decision to show the juxtaposition of the most iconic form of totalitarianism and ways it still exists today, specifically in politics, the military-industrial complex, censorship, and intense monitoring and tracking of our citizens. It has nothing to do with glorifying Hitler or the Holocaust. People think it's trivializing the Holocaust because the song talks about sex, but I have no control over the lyrical content. I had an opportunity and an outlet, which I knew would reach millions of people, and wanted to make a statement. The term New World Order isn't just an edgy pop culture reference. It is very real and was a term used by president George H.W. Bush, ironically 10 years to the day before 9/11.
We have a government that tracks us, monitors us, has programs dedicated to controlling our minds and testing diseases on us, and no one asks any questions. People aren't privy to things like MK Ultra, the School of the Americas, the fact that the Bush family owned Securacom, which was in charge of security for the World Trade Center, Dulles Airport, and United Airlines. The fact that in every recent war, the opposition leader has worked for the CIA. I'm not saying I know all the facts, but do people really think there isn't more to the story? Look up from your smartphone and smell the fuckin' roses, I'm trying to help you! People vilify artists for using this type of imagery in their work as if they're part of the 1% club. Believe me, any artist who has brain cells know they're not in the club. In my opinion it's not glorification, it's a subliminal warning because you can't openly say these kinds of things. Me? I don't give a shit. I have no corporate interests, PR team, or image to maintain.

'Princes of the Yen' is a follow-up to the successful underground film produced by Queuepolitely, a collective of filmmakers and artists, some known, some unknown.
This is their own description of this film, based on a book by the UK's University of Southampton, Professor Richard Werner, famous for coining the term, "Quantative

"Set in 20th Century Japan, the documentary explores the role and power of Central Banks, and how they can be used to change a country's economic, political and social structures."
