Michel Chossudovsky recalls his remarkable meeting with Castro

Chossudovsky meets with Castro in 2010.

Chossudovsky discussed the dangers of nuclear war with Castro in 2010.

Fidel Castro Ruz was acutely aware of the mechanisms of media disinformation and war propaganda

I cannot think of a better way to commemorate the life of Fidel Castro than to share this post from Global Research’s Michel Chossudovsky, who had the incredible opportunity in 2010 to sit down with the Cuban leader in his home in Havana to discuss the dangers of nuclear war, global capitalism, and other subjects.—Craig McKee

By Michel Chossudovsky (Reprinted from Global Research)

Today, November 25, 2016 Fidel Castro Ruz, leader of the Cuban Revolution has passed. His legacy will live forever.

The Cuban Revolution constitutes a fundamental landmark in the history of humanity, which challenges the legitimacy of global capitalism.

In all major regions of the World, the Cuban revolution has been a source of inspiration in the relentless struggle against colonial domination and US imperialism.

Fidel Castro was the embodiment of these struggles against global capitalism, (more…)

Attempt to deflect criticism of the Warren Commission Report has become the ultimate weapon against dissent

The ultimate weapon against dissent

“Now it’s conspiracy – they’ve made that something that should not even be entertained for a minute, that powerful people might get together and have a plan. Doesn’t happen, you’re a kook, you’re a conspiracy buff!” – George Carlin

By Craig McKee

It has been called the “conspiracy theory” conspiracy.

But it’s not just a theory, it’s a fact. And like more than a few conspiracies it involves the Central Intelligence Agency – specifically a campaign in the 1960s to discredit those challenging the findings of the Warren Commission in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The agency achieved this by linking challenges to the official story with “conspiracy theories.”

It is known as CIA dispatch #1035-960. It was distributed in 1967 but not released to the public until 1976 following a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times. On the dispatch were marked “PSYCH” (for psychological warfare) and (more…)

Mainstream newspaper prints op-ed questioning 2014 Ottawa shootings

Oct. 25, 2016

By Barrie Zwicker

For 15 years I was paid to mainly find fault with the media, while on occasion celebrating well-crafted reporting, excellent think pieces, and the advent of independent journalism. A recent opinion piece that is worth celebrating is Prof. Graeme MacQueen’s op-ed in the Hamilton Spectator published on October 21st.

In the article (reproduced in its entirety below), MacQueen raises a series of questions rarely posed in the media concerning the Parliament Hill shootings in Ottawa in October 2014. What is truly impressive is not just the considerable depth of research that went into compiling the questions (more…)

B’nai Brith smear campaign against Anthony Hall reflects worsening threat to academic freedom

October 12, 2016

By Craig McKee

Over his long and impressive academic career, Professor Anthony Hall has helped us all better understand how crises can be manufactured to manipulate public perception of narratives that serve the interests of established power.

Now, he is the victim of one of those contrived crises.

In the latest of a growing list of glaring assaults on academic freedom, Hall has been suspended without pay from his tenured teaching position at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada where he has taught for 26 years. As the result of an obviously faked and planted Facebook post, he has become the focus of a (more…)

Bob McIlvaine on how his son’s death points to controlled demolition

mcilvaine-bob

This article is a lightly modified version of a piece I just wrote for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, which you can read here. I thank the staff at AE911Truth for making it possible for me to speak with Bob McIlvaine and write this article.—CM

By Craig McKee

Bob McIlvaine and his family are not alone in having suffered a devastating personal loss on September 11, 2001. The loved ones of the nearly 3,000 victims of the destruction at the World Trade Center know what he has endured for the past 15 years.

But McIlvaine is different from most of these families in important ways. In addition to his unwavering and often lonely fight to expose the complicity of the U.S. government in this false flag attack, he has strong forensic evidence that his 26-year-old son, Bobby, was killed by a powerful explosion as he was about to enter the lobby of the North Tower. That evidence is corroborated by the accounts (more…)

Martin Luther King survived shooting, was murdered in hospital: an interview with William Pepper

MLK 2

For one bright moment back in the late 1960s, we actually believed that we could change our country. We had identified the enemy. We saw it up close, we had its measure, and we were very hopeful that we would prevail. The enemy was hollow where we had substance. All of that substance was destroyed by an assassin’s bullet. – William Pepper (page 15, The Plot to Kill King)

By Craig McKee

The revelations are stunning. The media indifference is predictable.

Thanks to the nearly four-decade investigation by human rights lawyer William Pepper, it is now clear once and for all that Martin Luther King was murdered in a conspiracy that was instigated by then FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and that also involved the U.S. military, the Memphis Police Department, and “Dixie Mafia” crime figures in Memphis, Tennessee. These and many more incredible details of the King assassination are contained in a trilogy of volumes by (more…)

Barrett anthology thumbs nose at contradictory Orlando narratives

By Barrie Zwicker (Special to Truth and Shadows)

The speed is admirable. Barely seven weeks after the murky events of June 12th in Florida’s Pulse gay nightclub, Kevin Barrett’s latest instant false flag exposé is already providing valuable insights and perspectives. In fact, Orlando False Flag: The Clash of Histories has just gone up for sale at amazon.com and is also available at createspace.

The speed is important because the urgency is great. False flag operations remain the prime drivers of the maximum illusion “war on terror” and ongoing aggressive actions against Russia, China, Syria and others by the imperial American Empire, its allies and vassals—all masked as “the West.” World War III is not out of the (more…)

Surreal summer of ‘terror’: fight to destroy Nice video, creepy Orlando musical numbers, and a killer robot

No blood on the Nice truck and a curious absence of bullet hole right were the driver would have been sitting.

August 1, 2016

By Craig McKee

This summer season of contrived “terror” and “rage” has left many wondering whether the world has gone completely mad and whether chaos is the new normal.

I would say it has – and it is – but not for the same reasons our media and authorities would have us believe.

There have been so many “terrorist” attacks – or apparent ones – in the past couple of months in the U.S., France, Germany, and Japan that it’s hard to keep up (and we’re not even counting the serious violence in Syria, Iraq, Bangladesh, and other countries we’re conditioned not to care much (more…)

Orlando suspicions: Multiple shooters, multiple ‘motives’ and a siege that just doesn’t add up

Orlando Pulse at night

We’re told police waited for three hours for more personnel and an armored vehicle to arrive.

By Craig McKee

This “terror” event has everything.

Religious fanaticism, homophobia, domestic violence and male rage, mental illness and self-hatred, impassioned demands for gun control, dire warnings about the Internet’s role in creating terrorists, alarms raised about immigrants, and questions about how law enforcement could have let a future killer they were watching slip through their fingers. How many of these elements are real and how many (more…)

What we should have learned from Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty

USS-Liberty-New

By Craig McKee

It is one of the greatest lies that most Americans – in fact most people around the world – have never heard of. And it reveals much about the true relationship between the United States and one of its “closest allies,” the State of Israel.

This was an act of war – a false flag attack, a mass execution, a war crime, a gross betrayal, and the beginning of an exercise in deception and propaganda that continues to this day.

It was 49 years ago that Israel launched a shocking and brutal attack on an American intelligence ship, the USS Liberty, as it (more…)
