MSNBC Cancels ‘The Cycle,’ ‘NOW With Alex Wagner,’ and ‘The Ed Show’

[but keeps FBI snitch, corporatist fraud and TPP-pimp Al Sharpton?!

The cancellation of pea-brain Alex Wagner’s show was, however, acceptable.]

| 30 July 2015 | Multiple reports today seem to confirm what Mediaite first reported last week: MSNBC is officially pulling the plug on ‘The Cycle.’ The reports also confirm Joe Concha’s reporting that ‘NOW With Alex Wagner’ and ‘The Ed Show’ have been axed…Chuck Todd [#FireChuckTodd] will anchor a show in the 5 pm slot.

The Donald Doubles Down on His “McCain Not a War Hero” Statements

mcain-trump

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Over the weekend, “the Donald” backed down on his attacks on McCain, calling “Hanoi John” a “war hero.”

However, Donald is not going to be able to close the can of worms he opened.  Today, McCain is trying to wrap himself in the POW flag for cover.  POWs had never been rock star heroes before, quite the opposite.  These are people who surrendered to the enemy, people suspected of collaboration and worse.  With Korea, POWs became the shame of America with many “brainwashed” into following communist doctrines.

American POWs from Vietnam were the bloody flag Richard Nixon wrapped himself in, on the advice of Henry Kissinger, part of a ploy to divert attention from his endless personal failings which included his agreement with North Vietnam that let them keep and later execute hundreds of American POWs.  1205 American POWs were kept by North Vietnam according to records recovered at the end of the Cold War.  President’s Clinton and Yeltsin instituted a search of Russia’s gulags looking for their remains with no success.  In 1993, armed with testimony from a former high ranking Czech security official, I proposed a systematic search of archives in Prague that recorded the fate of 200 missing US POWs from Vietnam but was blocked by Senator John McCain.

33 POWs faced execution for treason after Vietnam until Nixon pardoned all POWs.  McCain was on the list of the 33, in fact at the head of it.

Here are the facts as we know them:

  • According to Colonel Ted Guy, John McCain’s commander as a POW, McCain collaborated with the enemy.
  • McCain is accused of giving information that led to the downing of 60 US aircraft
  • McCain is accused of training North Vietnamese air defense personnel
  • McCain is accused of making over 30 propaganda broadcasts against the US, broadcasts he moved to have classified when he was elected to the senate

These 4 accusations are the only real and supportable accusations against McCain.  The evidence for these acts exists and is substantial.  What is stranger still is McCain’s longtime war against veterans, other POWs and their families.  When John was a bit younger and better capable of looking after himself, he was often both verbally and physically abusive to POW families, POW activists and veterans.  We hear nothing of these brutal outbursts of McCain’s though they continue to this day, now taken as the ravings of a mental defective.

The door Donald opened should be kept open.  We need to examine the POW phenomenon.  After Vietnam, we allowed Nixon to glorify POWs while abandoning hundreds.  The facts came to light during the late 1990s when tapes of conversations between Nixon and Kissinger were made public, for moments, with Kissinger admitting that American POWS held outside North Vietnam, in Laos, Cambodia and the South, were purposefully not included in the agreements, a number Kissinger put at over 200.

These tapes were cleaned from the media and are not available to even researchers, were such interested parties to exist, which they do not.

Vietnam was a useless war.  I served in Vietnam as a Marine combat infantryman and know the war well close up.

Those of us that served felt abused and exploited and suffered far worse at the hands of Nixon and subsequent leaders who backed away from those of us who served as honorably as possible while engaging in a nutty frenzy of POW worship.

Trump is right, those who surrender are generally not heroes.  Some were however, like Ted Guy, a man taken on the ground fighting, killing 4 of his captors.

Guy, however, is only one of many thousands, many many thousands, from Vietnam that should have received some aspect of recognition in a war where many more thousands lived like gods.  Vietnam was a scam, drugs, prostitution, black market, the best food and hottest parties in the world for many who came home from the war with medals on their chests for doing nothing whatsoever.

I might add, the Saigon press club war correspondents were the worst of all, living like kings on little boys and little girls while being occasionally flown for “10 minutes of war” with a general, then back to the clubs and brothels.  They all should have been locked in FEMA camps, were such things to exist.

As for the Donald, he should demand that, minimally, the American public be able to hear McCain’s broadcasts and see the records of his debriefing and read the statements made against him by other POWs, including and especially Colonel Ted Guy.

This man, if you wish to call him that, “McCain” has been allowed to destroy America’s security for two generations, along with friends like “light loafer Lindsey” Graham and others.

In one instance alone, the F35, McCain has personally destroyed America’s defense capabilities for 25 years.  This is his plane, his project, his monstrosity.

There hasn’t been a defense scam in decades that hasn’t had his hand prints on it.  Time for Trump to get serious and show some backbone.  McCain is a hard target, time for Trump to stop bashing the easy guys and take this one on.

‘News reports of the July 16 shootings in Chattanooga Tennessee already provide some curious features that warrant close scrutiny. Perhaps unsurprisingly, complete oversight of the shooting investigation has been turned over to the FBI. Also, the Israeli-linked SITE Intelligence Group is involved in providing the news frame for alleged shooter Muhammed Youssef Abdulazeez.

For over a decade now the FBI has been busy creating phony terror events throughout the US to provide the semblance of a discernible enemy in the “war on terror,” as investigative reporter Trevor Aaronson has documented. This has proven immensely lucrative for the Western military-intelligence-media complex.’

‘There appears to be a bigger lie than “weapons of mass destruction.” It’s not simply that the illegal invasion of Iraq was based on lies, but that the entire “war on terrorism” is likely based on lies.

We were told by our government that Afghanistan was invaded for giving shelter to Osama bin Laden, who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Mainstream press have pushed this so repeatedly that “9/11″ and “Osama bin Laden” have become interchangeable.

While working on this piece I asked the first three people I ran into at my local grocery store “Who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks?,” three times getting “Osama bin Laden” for replies. This is not scientific, yet it makes one wonder how this would work out in national polling.’

‘This month marks the one year anniversary of the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 – an incident that took place against a backdrop of a brutal proxy war – pitting Kiev and its supporters in Washington DC, the EU and NATO – against rebel forces in eastern Ukraine and Russia. As with most 21st century conflicts, truth has been the first casualty of war here.

Last July, 21WIRE released its own preliminary investigation into the disaster. That post still remains one of the most successful articles in the site’s history. One year on, we’ll revisit and review many of those key points and attempt many of the reamining unanswered questions…’

The performance of fading imperial power becomes more dangerous with each new crisis it faces, whether real, imagined or the logical outcome of its weakening intellectual and moral foundation which threatens the material structure we call civilization. Even while Greece is being treated with the near economic savagery previously reserved for developing and non-european countries, the attempted step into reality in recognizing Iran’s importance in the world, especially its dominant role in the middle east, is accompanied by enough hypocritical gall and bloody arrogance to make ISIS look very reasonable by comparison.

Having suffered brutal western assault since their Islamic revolution of 1979 which discarded a minority government of European toadies for a more homegrown majority representation of its people, Iran has finally forced the USA, though not its seemingly conjoined-by-dollars twin Israel, to face at least a small part of reality. But this tiny recognition of what most of the world, especially many people in the middle east, already knows is accompanied by a tremendous amount of backlash-to-logic.

The bellowing of both the Israeli leadership and its Knesset Caucus in the USA continues treating Iran as some major threat to humanity and especially settler innocents in a colony of supremacists from Europe who’ve established a homeland in the middle of a Semitic world. But that’s okay because god said it was really theirs, a thousand or two thousand years ago or so. And even if many of those euros are atheists who say they don’t believe in god. Business is business and real estate is a big business, especially when the realtor is a deity.

The appalling arrogance necessary for the only nation to have invented and used nuclear weapons to stand over another and make sure it doesn’t create such a maniacal arsenal is enough to make hyenas and jackals barf as they perform nature’s dictates in eating the dead. But this is on a par with the settler chorus singing hosannas to peace and democracy while it bludgeons Palestinians into bloody colonial victims while its own collection of nuclear death dealing remains secret to all as long as they believe in the easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

The master race is indeed threatened by any rising independent power against its dominance in a world it considers its private market, especially the oil mall in the Middle East. Adherents to The Chosen psycho politics swear that Iran, as eventually the entire world, is intent on genocidal extermination of the Jewish nation. That last has been an ongoing program since biblical times, at least according to a minority interpretation, which could lead one to wonder how there are any people left who call themselves jewish. Given the reality of a near extermination of native people in what became the USA, and with no scriptural or historic evidence of any such plan beyond bloody racist colonial conquest, it may be miraculous that there are still descendants of native people here, though somehow, there are more Jews in the USA than Indians. And that’s without an Indian narrative of a euro-gentile-islamic-jewish conspiracy to annihilate them. Hmmm.

Material reality be damned, the American multi-cultural master race, even as it performs homicidal attacks on its own, is aligned with the never without existential threat chosen nation of Israel, even as it performs daily horror on palestinians in proving its godliness – even to its atheists –in screeching loud and clear the awful threat to humanity posed by Iran.

The most heavily armed nation that spends more money on weapons than any other and maintains foreign military bases in hundreds of countries should be feared, but it is not Iran. Except for those believers in the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy, it is the USA. And the most heavily armed military power in the Middle East, including nuclear weapons, is not Iran. Except for believers in the world being created in six days and the 911 conspiracy beginning on the seventh. Yet, this fanatic mindset with no substance in reality and as sensible as what provoked the racist murderer in South Carolina or the race supremacists in Tel Aviv would have it that Iran is a menace that must be contained. And who better to do the containing than the most belligerent, feared and hated countries in the world, asserted so by polling and arrived at by common sense and experience?

Those who espouse these political-economic-religious views do not try to hide the madness between their ears by wearing propeller beanies on their heads, so they are not identifiable simply by sight. They look just like us, even if they exercise infinitely more power than we have as long we allow them to reign under the guise of democracy. But if that up to now fictional theory doesn’t soon become practical reality, the idiocy that is bringing all of us closer to breakdown will not involve an idiot with a gun opening fire in a theater or a church, but maniacs with missiles, drones and nuclear weapons destroying more of the earth and its people than they have ever done before. Iran, like the rest of the world, deserves our respect as a nation and a people. As long as we allow ourselves to be led by disrespectful supremacists, we’ll have only ourselves to blame if or when the worst happens. We should take action before that dreadful day arrives.

Footage obtained from McCain staffer shows ISIL executions shot in studio

| 14 July 2015 | Leaked footage obtained from a staffer of US Senator John McCain (R-I-CIA-SIS ally) shows the making of an ISIL “execution” video similar to the videos portraying the beheading of James Foley and other victims. In the three-and-a-half minute video, ISIL executioner Jihadi John (aka Mohammed Emwazi) can be seen standing in front of a green screen, beside a kneeling hostage wearing an orange jumpsuit and a green screen hood in a fully equipped studio in the presence of a production crew, the Leaksource website recently reported. The desert style set and wind machine effects, share similarities to the beheading videos ISIL released of Steven Sotloff, David Haines, and Alan Henning.

‘The recent ‘Ramadan Attacks’ supposedly carried out by members of ISIS – reek of Western propaganda dispensed from shadowy think-tanks.

Over the past month, we’ve seen ISIS and the puppeteers behind them engineering a string of apparent attacks, crucifixions and caged deaths that have metastasized into the minds of many, renewing concern over the cloaked terror brand – yet again.

Western media outlets have routinely sensationalized ISIS related incidents and the series of Ramadan attacks said to be taking place this month, are no exception. While these news stories appear to be illuminating the masses about the terrible violence seen on the global stage, it very well could be another ploy to acquire consent for a future, more direct invasion of Iraq and Syria by reasserting myths about the growth of ISIS.

While big media and foreign policy stooges have had no problem propagating the false narrative surrounding ISIS, they have yet to give an honest account as to how creatures of the Pentagon and their ‘coalition’ were caught dropping weapons and supplies into the hands of ISIS over the past year.’

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity. It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Greece did not fail on its own. It was made to fail.

In summary, the banks wrecked the Greek government, and then deliberately pushed it into unsustainable debt … while revenue-generating public assets were sold off to oligarchs and international corporations. The rest of the article is about how and why.

‘New York Congressman Peter King was spreading more of his brand of fear on Fox News last night, telling viewers that officials in New York are worried that there is going to be a dirty bomb attack this weekend.

Speaking to Megyn Kelly regarding the heightened chatter of a possible terrorist attack during 4th of July celebrations, King took things to a whole new level.

Saying he’s never seen this level of concern, King stated “You wouldn’t see the… nuclear explosion detection devices being used the way they are… if this were just a routine warning.”’

We have a few here too :)

Have you ever come across someone on the Internet that you suspected was a paid government troll?  Well, there is a very good chance that you were not imagining things.  Thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have solid proof that paid government trolls are using “psychology-based influence techniques” on social media websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.  Documents leaked by Snowden also reveal that government agents have been conducting denial-of-service attacks, flooding social media websites with thinly veiled propaganda and have been purposely attempting to warp public discourse online.  If we do not stand up and object to this kind of Orwellian behavior, it is only going to get worse and worse.

Heads up! A big, fat false flag is ‘needed’ really soon, as the dirt-bags want to ram the TPP through Congress in July without any mention of it in the media:

FBI Agents Telling Friends and Family to ‘Avoid July 4 Celebrations’ – Report

| 01 July 2015 | Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft cites an “inside source” who told him that “FBI agents are telling their friends and family members to avoid ‘official celebrations.'” Hoft also claims that the FBI has canceled vacation for all its agents for the duration of the weekend. Earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued alerts to local law enforcement and urged Americans to “remain vigilant” for this weekend’s July 4 events.

Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell also said Monday that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if there’s a terrorist attack during the 4th of July weekend.

“If you don’t want a man unhappy politically, don’t give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it…. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving. And they’ll be happy, because facts of that sort don’t change.” ― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use.
