NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 01.18.17

The Conspiracy Guy #8: The internet swirls with speculation that the CIA is going to take out the President-Elect of the United States prior to or during his inauguration. As stunning as it sounds, the threat appears to be real. The intelligence agencies have been attacking Trump on the basis of a fabricated “Russian dossier” that was created as “fanfiction”, which no one, much less the leaders of US intel agencies, ought to have taken seriously. And the claims of Russian hacking of the election likewise have no foundation: those DNC emails were not hacked but leaked, apparently by Seth Rich, the IT guy for the DNC, out of disillusionment with the sabotage of Bernie Sander’s campaign. Craig Murray, an intelligence analyst, UK ambassador and college head, evidently received them from him and gave them to Julian Assange, where Murray and Assange both deny any Russian involvement and where Rich appears to have paid for his act of supererogation with his life. But reliance upon fabricated documents by US intel agencies may be exceeded in hubris by the use of yet a third Hillary Clinton body-double, this one far better than either the “Meg Ryan” double used the day of her collapse at the 9/11 Memorial event and the “Meryl Streep” double used a few days later, where this third double has been identified in a new study using (what is known as) “eye-teeth ratio” to discriminate between them (where they have other obvious differences, once you realize the deception). And Hollywood propaganda continues unabated with the release of “Patriots Day”, a fictional reconstruction of the Boston bombing, but one in accord with the official account, which I dissect, piece by piece, during the second half of the show.

MARK WEISBROT – Intel agencies ask Americans to ‘trust, don’t verify’ in new Cold War

Just as the first casualty of war is said to be the truth, the first casualty of the new Cold War is irony. Our most prominent journalists seem to have missed the Orwellian irony of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asking Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper at Friday’s Senate hearings if Julian Assange has any credibility. Assange has maintained that the hacked or …

PATRICK COCKBURN – Saudi Arabia’s Dream of Domination Goes Up in Flames

As recently as two years ago, Saudi Arabia’s half century-long effort to establish itself as the main power among Arab and Islamic states looked as if it was succeeding. A US State Department paper sent by former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in 2014 and published by Wikileaks spoke of the Saudis and Qataris as rivals competing “to dominate the …

Michael Tracey – Assange Is Vastly More Reliable Than The Elite U.S. Media

In January 2011, the people of Tunisia effectuated an uprising which led to the ouster of Ben Ali, who had ruled the country for 23 years. Many Tunisians were well aware that the regime was autocratic and corrupt, but they were provided additional gory details about its decadent opulence by none other than WikiLeaks, the organization whose founder and editor …

The CIA’s Absence of Conviction

I have watched incredulous as the CIA’s blatant lie has grown and grown as a media story – blatant because the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption. Yes this rubbish has been the lead today in the Washington Post in the US and the …

He made a crucial contribution to the Sunday Times’s thalidomide exposé; revealed how the world’s biggest meat retailers, the Vestey family, had avoided taxation for six decades; and shed new …

WikiLeaks Drops Yemen Files, Unmasks Washington’s Bloody Role

Whistleblowing organization Wikileaks on Friday dropped yet another batch of files, this time detailing evidence of the United States arming, training and financing Yemeni forces in the build up to the current war. The so-called “Yemen Files” appears to show how the Yemeni government received military hardware from the U.S., including aircraft, vehicles and vessels, as well the Yemeni procurement …
