(Natural News)
By now it should be patently obvious to anyone who retains even a modicum of fairness in this highly charged, highly-partisan political environment in which we find ourselves these days that special counsel Robert Mueller isn’t interested in finding “Trump-Russia collusion.”

After nearly a year’s worth of investigating — a probe that followed a counterterrorism operation launched in the summer of 2016 against the Trump campaign by the Obama administration and at least three congressional investigations — Mueller hasn’t found any evidence of collusion.

In fact, the House Intelligence Committee has come up with a report from majority Republicans that the panel has not found one shred of evidence indicating collusion or any other illegal campaign activities involving Russia or any foreign government. The Democrats on the panel claim there is proof but they haven’t produced any (and they would have by now).

So what is Mueller actually investigating at the moment? Why does he keep indicting minor campaign figures and one former Trump administration official (Michael Flynn) for process crimes and other alleged illegal activities from more than 10 years ago?

How broad was the mandate, exactly, that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Mueller and his team when he named the former FBI director to be special counsel — on a set-up initiated by another former FBI director, James Comey?

We don’t yet have answers to these questions, but one thing we do know is this: Mueller, who is hailed and feted by the D.C. Swamp to be a man of indisputable integrity, instead has a history of being little more than a dirty cop. (Related: ‘Golden Boy’ Robert Mueller’s forgotten surveillance crime spree.)

History of prosecutorial abuse

This story begins years ago when Mueller was first an assistant U.S. attorney then as the acting U.S. attorney in Boston. 

Throughout the 1980s, Mueller wrote letters to the state’s parole and pardons board opposing clemency for four men — Peter Limone, Henry Tameleo, Joe Salvati, and Louis Greco, who were convicted for a 1965 mob-related murder.

But it turns out they were innocent. And it turns out that Mueller knew they were innocent. 

Some rogue FBI agents, John Connolly and John Morris, both of whom were “handlers” for mob figure-turned-FBI informant Whitey Bulger, attempted to intimidate a local parole board member, Mike Albano — who later became mayor of Springfield, Mass. — into dropping his sympathy for the four men and any inkling of voting to grant them clemency.

“They told me that if I wanted to stay in public life, I shouldn’t vote to release a guy like Limone,’’ Albano said. “They intimidated me.’’

Both agents, of course, would have had to have been answerable to the U.S. attorney in Boston at the time, which was, as previously stated, Bob Mueller.

There’s more. After Albano became mayor in 1995 he found that the FBI had begun investigating his administration for ‘corruption.’ After taking down several people associated with his government, he became convinced that “the FBI wasn’t interested in public integrity as much as in publicly humiliating him because he dared to defy them,” the Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen writes.

Sound familiar?

Sen. Ted Stevens

Former Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, was, at the time, the longest-serving GOP senator who had an impeccable reputation among those who knew him. But shortly before the 2008 election he was indicted by the FBI — led at the time by Director Robert Mueller — based on falsified records and testimony from some very well rewarded “cooperating” witnesses. 

In short order, it was reported that the government had concealed exculpatory evidence from Stevens’ defense team. As such, an independent investigation was ordered by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, which discovered that the prosecution was “permeated by the systemic concealment of significant exculpatory evidence, which would have independently corroborated Senator Stevens’ defense and his testimony, and seriously damaged the testimony and credibility of the government’s key witness.”

A just-released report by U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, titled, “Robert Mueller: Unmasked,” recounted the injustice. 

The ‘stink’ was that Stevens, whom retired Army general and Secretary of State Colin Powell described as “a trusted individual” whom people “could rely on,” did not pay full price for improvements to his Alaskan cabin. The charges were leveled 100 days out from a closely contested election; he was convicted just eight days before voters went to the polls, which tipped the scale to his Democratic opponent.

But in fact, as reports noted at the time, Gohmert’s report states, Stevens actually overpaid for those improvements by about 20 percent. Nevertheless, after relying on false records and that ‘rewarded’ witness, the prosecution convinced jurors to find him guilty.

States Gohmert’s report:

After a report substantiated massive improprieties by the FBI and DOJ in the investigation and prosecution of Senator Stevens, the result was ultimately a complete dismissal of the conviction.

At the time there was no direct evidence that Director Mueller was aware of the tactics of concealing exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated Stevens, and the creation of evidence that convicted him in 2008.

However, Mueller is culpable because, as director, he allowed the FBI agent who essentially manufactured the case against Stevens to remain on board (to this day), while allowing an agent who blew the whistle on the corrupt case to be punished.

“Obviously, the FBI Director wanted his FBI agents to understand that honesty would be punished if it revealed wrongdoing within Mueller’s organization,” said Gohmert’s report.

Uranium One

In March, Gohmert told a monthly meeting of conservatives that he believes Mueller’s never-ending ‘Russian collusion’ investigation is designed, in part, to cover up a real scandal: Uranium One.

“I think Mueller should be fired,” Gohmert, a former state judge, said during the monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” meeting. “He should never have been appointed and he should never have accepted. He should be fired.”

To that end, as The National Sentinel reported in January, Mueller’s FBI had been investigating a scheme since 2008 that involved bribery, kickbacks, and money laundering with a Russian nuclear industry official, Vadim Mikerin, who was acting in order to secure a business advantage with TENEX, a subsidiary of Russian state-owned nuclear firm Rosatom, which bought Uranium One.

Now-fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had been assigned to oversee the ongoing investigation, which was never revealed to the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States — the body that approves sales of U.S. firms with possible strategic implications to foreign companies. Had the committee known, it would have never approved the Uranium One sale.

Eventually, four individuals were prosecuted but then given a plea bargain after the Uranium One sale was approved; the prosecuting Justice Department attorneys were current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Andrew Weissman, a Democrat supporter now on Mueller’s special counsel team.

Additional reporting noted that the Obama DoJ never called the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell, when it was time to charge former Russian uranium industry official Mikerinn.

“I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI,” Alan Dershowitz told The Hill.

There’s much more to report regarding Mueller’s Deep State corruption. Stay tuned.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Explains The Real Reason The West Is Trying To Destabilize Syria



Next Story

“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”
 Mark Twain

The recent chemical gas attack in Syria has once again lit a fire under the global population, a split is being created. Every single year, the divide as to what’s really happening in Syria gets stronger and stronger. Although division and the constant opposing narrative’s between the mass population only creates more conflict, drama, and confusion, in this case it’s much different, because before it was simply believe what we hear, now, we are learning to question it.

What we have here is a classic case of media giants spewing opposing views. On one hand, we have the western military alliance claiming that a chemical attack occurred in Syria and was done so by the Syrian President, Bashar Al Assad, despite the fact that absolutely no evidence of this being so was presented. This narrative is dished out from intelligence agencies via western mainstream media. Investigations are currently taking place as to what really happened there, as the OPCW chemical weapons inspectors recently arrived inside of Douma to do an inspection, as it would be nice to actually have some real evidence that a chemical weapons attack occurred.

On the other side of the coin, there are a number of journalists, academicians and politicians who’ve voiced their concern that this could be a “false flag” attack. In fact, after the last supposed chemical weapons attack, Russian President Vladimir Putin came out and said that it was a “false” flag and that “more are being prepared in Syria.” Not long ago, a Russian general went on Russian national T.V. letting the citizens know that they had intel of another staged gas attack to occur in Syria. Despite the fact that a large portion of westerners resonate with this viewpoint, it is still greeted with a harsh response in many cases, often deemed as “Russian propaganda.” Obviously, Assad has denied any chemical weapons attack on his own people.

As a side note, when we say staged, we mean just that, with crisis actors being involved. On the other hand, there are also staged real events, where people do lose their lives and are actually victims of weapons attack, that could be the case here in Syria as well.

The Deep State has a long history of labelling foreigners as dictators, sponsoring terrorist activities in those countries and influencing a regime change to suit their own best interests. These are facts that are hard to argue against, and many political and military figures from around the world, including the United States, on-top of uncountable academicians, have all expressed their concern that this is exactly what we’re seeing in Syria right now.

Can you imagine? A power so strong that they have their hands in the creation of terrorist activity, in order to justify the invasion of another country for ulterior motives, while looking like the humanitarian and ‘saviour?’

I don’t want to get into it here, as I recently published an article that goes into a little more detail about the recent chemical attack in Syria, linked below:

MIT Professor Emeritus Claims Latest Chemical Attack In Syria Was Not Assad’s Doing

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Perspective

I want to focus on long time activist, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and zero in on his post about the chemical weapons attack that was blamed on Assad, prior to the most recent one.

Kennedy writes,

“America’s unsavoury record of violent interventions in Syria – Obscure to the American people yet well known to Syrians – sowed fertile ground for the violent Islamic Jihadism that now complicates any effective response by our government to address the challenges of ISIS. So long as the American public and policymakers are unaware of this past, further interventions are likely to only compound the crisis. Moreover, our enemies delight in our ignorance.” 

Also, I believe it’s important to mention that when the term ‘Islamic State’ or ‘Islamic Jihadism’ is used, it in no way represents any muslim person whatsoever.

“The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. … They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society.” – Dr. Michel Chossudovsky

This quote highlights one of many examples of how religion is being used by the global elite to basically create chaos, making their intervention a little easier.

Kennedy believes this is another pipeline war, citing the fact that the world’s addiction to oil, when oil is completely unnecessary at this point, is creating social chaos, war, terror, the refugee crisis overseas, and the loss of democracy and civil rights both abroad and at home.

He is no doubt correct, and obviously has knowledge of this type of thing given who he is and what he and his family have experienced inside the realm of geopolitics.

The truth is, plans to create dramatic political change in multiple countries have been in the works for quite some time.

Titled “Syria: Scenarios of Dramatic Political Change,” this document was written in July of 1986 by the Foreign Subversion and Instability Center, part of the CIA’s Mission Center for Global Issues.

It states its mission to analyze “a number of possible scenarios that could lead to the ouster of President Assad or other dramatic change in Syria.” Though the document is 25 years old, it shows that the U.S. plans to influence and infiltrate Syria to create change that would suit their own interests and dates back well over 30 years.

The document also comes with similar testimony from insiders. One example would be former Four Star General Wesley Clark, who was the Supreme Allied Commander of Europe of NATO from 1997-2000. Clark said, in an interview with Democracy Now, that the U.S. had plans to invade countries in the Middle East, including Syria, for no justified reason at all.  He offered the sentiments of some within the American military, that they have a “good military” and that they can “take down governments.”  He spoke of a memo that described how the U.S. had “plans to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off, Iran” (source).

In Kennedy’s article, he explains how long before the 2003 occupation of Iraq by the United States (which was justified by 9/11), the US government triggered the Sunni uprising which has now become the ‘Islamic State.’ “The CIA had nurtured violent Jihadism as a Cold War weapon and freighted U.S./Syrian relationships with toxic baggage,” explains Kennedy.

The CIA began its active meddling in Syria in 1949—barely a year after the agency’s creation. Syrian patriots had declared war on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist democracy based on the American model. But in March of 1949, Syria’s democratically elected president, Shukri-al-Kuwaiti, hesitated to approve the Trans Arabian Pipeline, an American project intended to connect the oil fields of Saudi Arabia to the ports of Lebanon via Syria. In his book, Legacy of Ashes, CIA historian Tim Weiner recounts that in retaliation, the CIA engineered a coup, replacing al-Kuwaiti with the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted swindler named Husni al-Za’im. Al-Za’im barely had time to dissolve parliament and approve the American pipeline before his countrymen deposed him, 14 weeks into his regime.”

Syria is one of multiple countries currently standing that has not been completely destroyed and transformed by the United States.

In order for these interventions to occur, the United States and their allies desperately need to justify reasons for intervention to their populace.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”
– Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

The point is, the idea that these gas attacks are false flag events, and the idea that the US has their hand in such attacks to help oust Assad, while at the same time branding him a dictator and a war criminal, is nothing new. It’s not ‘Russian propaganda’ and it’s something that’s been happening for a long time.

The Bigger Picture

We’re obviously going to get nowhere on any subject if human consciousness is continually divided as to what’s really happening. Thankfully, human consciousness is changing, and the conflict that’s been taking place in Syria right now is a great example. If these attacks happened not but 5 years ago, maybe 10, the idea that this was a “false flag” wasn’t even a narrative within the mainstream. At least now we have a large portion of the population addressing questions and concerns that weren’t really addressed in the past. This is a great example of how humanity is waking up, and if we want to stop these problems, we must first identify them, and that’s what’s happening. This means that people are actually doing some critical thinking, and doing some independent research instead of constantly being influenced by the perspective of mainstream media.

This is an encouraging sign.

‘All elections shall be Free & Equal’ 


More Voices, More Choices


 


Founder & Chair


Christina Tobin loves to fight the good fight… for US voters. She’s making a career of helping honest, earnest candidates to run for political office.


In the course of her work, she decided to mainstream her efforts. In order to shift power back to individual voter, Tobin founded The Free & Equal Elections Foundation, a non-partisan, 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicated to creating open and transparent elections in 2008. Free and Equal is the platform that’s helping thousands of citizens work together, who want to clean up politics for once and for all.


A bit of background about Tobin. In the 2004 presidential election, Tobin defended 29,000 signatures in Illinois for Ralph Nader when he ran as an independent, while still in college. Through this, she’d had a strong taste of politics. She wondered if there wasn’t a better way.


In the same year, she successfully defended 39,000 signatures for Rich Whitney, the Green Party candidate for Illinois governor. In 2008, Tobin served as Ralph Nader’s national ballot access coordinator, helping to collect more than 500,000 signatures to put Ralph Nader on the District of Columbia and 45 state ballots. She also organized the first alternatively-televised Presidential debate.


In 2010, Tobin organized a series of debates for Illinois gubernatorial candidates. Increasing visibility of alternative candidates by providing debate forums is part of Tobin’s larger strategy to inspire passionate activists and young people, who do not have major money sources, to run for public office. By 2011, Tobin served as Vice President of Taxpayers United of America. Her work exposed big pension payouts in Illinois and 12 other states.


For the 2012 Presidential Election cycle, Tobin moderated a Presidential debate with media personality Larry King, broadcasting around the world by RT TV, Al-Jazeera and C-SPAN. The debates provided a venue for four U.S. presidential candidates from the Constitution, Green, Justice, and Libertarian parties to address topics that the mainstream debates left out. It became a Top 10 Trend on Twitter. (Tobin holds the record for moderating the most state and national election debates in the United States).


Currently, Tobin is organizing a follow-up to Free and Equal’s successful 2014 United We Stand Festival. The UWS Fests will feature celebrities, leaders and speakers, musical performers, artists and intellectuals who are socially and politically engaged.


Tobin’s dream has always been, to bring more voices and more choices to the U.S. political arena.

Famed War Reporter Robert Fisk Reaches Syrian Chemical Attack Site, Concludes They Were Not Gassed

Robert Fisk’s bombshell first-hand account for the UK Independent runs contrary to nearly every claim circulating in major international press concerning what happened just over week ago on April 7th in an embattled suburb outside Damascus: not only has the veteran British journalist found no evidence of a mass chemical attack, but he’s encountered multiple local eyewitnesses who experienced the chaos of that night, but who say the gas attack never happened.

Fisk is the first Western journalist to reach and report from the site of the alleged chemical weapons attack widely blamed on Assad’s forces. Writing from Douma in eastern Ghouta, Fisk has interviewed a Syrian doctor who works at the hospital shown in one of the well-known videos which purports to depict victims of a chemical attack.

The Independent: “Middle East Correspondent Robert Fisk in one of the miles of tunnels hacked beneath Douma by prisoners of Syrian rebels.” (source: Yara Ismail via the Independent)

Importantly, the report, published late in the day Monday, is causing a stir among mainstream journalists whominutes after the Saudi-sponsored jihadist group Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) accused the Syrian Army of gassing civiliansbegan uncritically promoting the “Assad gassed his own people” narrative as an already cemented and “proven” fact based on the mere word a notoriously brutal armed group who itself has admitted to using chemical weapons on the Syrian battlefield in prior years. Also notable is that no journalist or international observer was anywhere near Douma when the purported chemical attack took place. 

Controversy ensued immediately after Fisk’s report, especially as he is among the most recognizable names in the past four decades of Middle East war reporting, having twice won the British Press Awards’ Journalist of the Year prize and as seven time winner of the British Press Awards’ Foreign Correspondent of the Year (the NY Times has referred to him as “probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain” while The Guardian has called him “one of the most famous journalists in the world”). An Arabic speaker, Fisk became famous for being among the few reporters in history to conduct face-to-face interviews with Osama bin Laden, which he did on three occasions between 1993 and 1997.

Fisk says he was able to walk around and investigate newly liberated Douma without Syrian government or Russian minders (in part this is likely because he has reported from inside Syria going back decades, in war-torn 1982 Hama, for example), and he begins his account as follows:

This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks–and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world– despite all the doubters–is perfectly genuine.

War stories, however, have a habit of growing darker. For the same 58-year old senior Syrian doctor then adds something profoundly uncomfortable: the patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.

Fisk goes on to identify the doctor by name – Dr. Assim Rahaibani – which is notable given the fact that all early reporting from Douma typically relied on “unnamed doctors” and anonymous opposition sources for early claims of a chlorine gas attack (lately morphed into an unverified “mixed” chlorine-and-sarin attack).

The doctor’s testimony is consistent with that of the well-known Syrian opposition group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR)which initially reported based on its own pro-rebel sourcing that heavy government bombardment of Douma city resulted in the collapse of homes and underground shelters, causing civilians in hiding to suffocate.

According to SOHR, which has long been a key go-to source for mainstream media over the course of the war, “70 of them [women and children] have suffered suffocation as a result of the demolition of home basements over them due to the heavy and intense shelling.”

Though outlets from The Guardian to The Washington Post to The New York Times have quoted SOHR on a near daily basis throughout the past six years of war, the anti-Assad opposition outlet’s reporting of mass asphyxiation due to collapse of shelters has been notably absent from the same publications.

Fisk to Spirit Radio: “The video is real, but they are not suffering from gas poisoning…”

Fisk details the Syrian doctor’s testimony, who is adamant in his emphasis that civilians were suffocating en masse, and were not gassed:

It was a short walk to Dr Rahaibani. From the door of his subterranean clinic–“Point 200”, it is called, in the weird geology of this partly-underground city–is a corridor leading downhill where he showed me his lowly hospital and the few beds where a small girl was crying as nurses treated a cut above her eye.

“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night–but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a “White Helmet”, shouted “Gas!”, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia–not gas poisoning.”

In addition to interviewing a doctor while standing in the very hospital featured in White Helmets footage of the events, Fisk cites the testimonies of multiple locals in the following:

Before we go any further, readers should be aware that this is not the only story in Douma. There are the many people I talked to amid the ruins of the town who said they had “never believed in” gas stories–which were usually put about, they claimed, by the armed Islamist groups. 

These particular jihadis survived under a blizzard of shellfire by living in other’s people’s homes and in vast, wide tunnels with underground roads carved through the living rock by prisoners with pick-axes on three levels beneath the town. I walked through three of them yesterday, vast corridors of living rock which still contained Russian–yes, Russian–rockets and burned-out cars.

And further fascinating is that the veteran British war correspondent comes upon local Douma residents who have so long been trapped in an isolated ‘fog of war’ battlefield environment, that they are not even aware of the international importance that the town has played in the US coalition decision to bomb Syria:

So the story of Douma is thus not just a story of gas–or no gas, as the case may be. It’s about thousands of people who did not opt for evacuation from Douma on buses that left last week, alongside the gunmen with whom they had to live like troglodytes for months in order to survive.

I walked across this town quite freely yesterday without soldier, policeman or minder to haunt my footsteps, just two Syrian friends, a camera and a notebook. I sometimes had to clamber across 20-foot-high ramparts, up and down almost sheer walls of earth. Happy to see foreigners among them, happier still that the siege is finally over, they are mostly smiling; those whose faces you can see, of course, because a surprising number of Douma’s women wear full-length black hijab.

..Oddly, after chatting to more than 20 people, I couldn’t find one who showed the slightest interest in Douma’s role in bringing about the Western air attacks. Two actually told me they didn’t know about the connection.

But it was a strange world I walked into. Two men, Hussam and Nazir Abu Aishe, said they were unaware how many people had been killed in Douma, although the latter admitted he had a cousin “executed by Jaish el-Islam [the Army of Islam] for allegedly being “close to the regime”. They shrugged when I asked about the 43 people said to have died in the infamous Douma attack.

vidence? …A video montage of the Pentagon and State Department’s awkward attempts to dodge the question of evidence. 

Concerning the White Helmets, who have played a dubious role throughout the war while presenting themselves as “impartial” and “neutral” rescue workers and film-makers, though known to operate exclusively in al-Qaeda and other jihadist-controlled areas of Syria, Fisk reports the following:

The White Helmets–the medical first responders already legendary in the West but with some interesting corners to their own story–played a familiar role during the battles. They are partly funded by the [British] Foreign Office and most of the local offices were staffed by Douma men. 

I found their wrecked offices not far from Dr Rahaibani’s clinic. A gas mask had been left outside a food container with one eye-piece pierced and a pile of dirty military camouflage uniforms lay inside one room. Planted, I asked myself? I doubt it. The place was heaped with capsules, broken medical equipment and files, bedding and mattresses.

Of course we must hear their side of the story, but it will not happen here: a woman told us that every member of the White Helmets in Douma abandoned their main headquarters and chose to take the government-organised and Russian-protected buses to the rebel province of Idlib with the armed groups when the final truce was agreed.

And Fisk further narrates the strangeness of some of the reporting now happening far outside of Douma which flatly contradicts the testimonies of civilians still inside Douma that he encounters:

How could it be that Douma refugees who had reached camps in Turkey were already describing a gas attack which no-one in Douma today seemed to recall? It did occur to me, once I was walking for more than a mile through these wretched prisoner-groined tunnels, that the citizens of Douma lived so isolated from each other for so long that “news” in our sense of the word simply had no meaning to them. 

Syria doesn’t cut it as Jeffersonian democracy–as I cynically like to tell my Arab colleagues–and it is indeed a ruthless dictatorship, but that couldn’t cow these people, happy to see foreigners among them, from reacting with a few words of truth. So what were they telling me?

They talked about the Islamists under whom they had lived. They talked about how the armed groups had stolen civilian homes to avoid the Syrian government and Russian bombing. The Jaish el-Islam had burned their offices before they left, but the massive buildings inside the security zones they created had almost all been sandwiched to the ground by air strikes. A Syrian colonel I came across behind one of these buildings asked if I wanted to see how deep the tunnels were. I stopped after well over a mile when he cryptically observed that “this tunnel might reach as far as Britain”. Ah yes, Ms May, I remembered, whose air strikes had been so intimately connected to this place of tunnels and dust. And gas?

For a prime example of what Fisk references as refugees in Turkey “already describing a gas attack which no-one in Douma seemed to recall…” CNN aired a segment from one such refugee camp which is absolutely bizarre and stunning in its claims. 

During the segment which aired “hours after” the US-led airstrikes on DamascusCNN’s Arwa Damon began sniffing a 7-year-old Syrian girl’s backpack while concluding, “I mean there’s definitely something that stings…” – with the implication that empirical proof had been found of government chemical weapons use against the little girl and her family.

And in the full segment, Damon attempts to subtly introduce the idea of a nerve agent used against the family (though initial claims were widely reported to be chlorine) by awkwardly including the account of the girl’s escape from Douma: “She could barely breath… she felt as if her entire nerves basically released.” 

Though it’s unclear what the strange phrasing of “her entire nerves basically released” actually means, CNN’s Arwa Damon is ultimately claiming to be able to safely and comfortably handle and sniff a backpack which contains residual sarin and chlorine agents, while simultaneously presenting the backpack as “proof” of a chemical attack which happened a week prior (to say nothing the clearly unscientific and bogus nature all of the above).

Notably, in addition to Fisk’s bombshell report filed from ground zero of the claimed chemical attack in Douma, cable network One America News has also issued a report from on the ground in the newly liberated town, finding “no evidence” – in its words – that a chemical attack took place there. 

 

Robert Fisk’s report for The Independent and the One America News segment constitute the first major international media reports from the location of the alleged chemical attack. But it will be interesting to see the extent to which international chemical and weapons experts either validate or refute their conclusions once the site is inspected.

Meanwhile, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) team arrived in Damascus on Saturday, April 14th – after the US-led overnight strikes which primarily hit government buildings in the capital.

Meet the Godfather of True Progressivism : The Honorable Governor Culbert Levy Olson  Humanitarian. Ex-Mormon. Atheist.


Epic new book of the “People’s Governor” Penned by Granddaughter Debra Deanne Olson and Dr. Craig West Wilkinson


Governor Culbert Levy Olson is oft called the Godfather of True Progressivism. If you want to know what Progressivism looks like, this is what Progressivism looks like…


So, how did this son of a  Mormon family from Utah defy the predictable politics and become the 29th governor of California? The Honorable Governor Culbert Levy Olson  tells the story of a remarkable statesman, a scientific skeptic and a man of cons cience totally committed to a true progressive agenda.   As early as 1934, he was a supporter of Upton Sinclair’s “End Poverty in California” (EPIC). He put Californians back to work by forming cooperatives to take over idle factories and farms. In 1934, he was elected to the California State Senate where he authored the Olson Oil Bill to break up oil company monopolies in California. 


Taking down the business-as-usual politicians is not for the faint of heart. It takes toughness, tenacity and an undisputed moral compass. In 1938, he campaigned to be the Governor on the platform for expanding The New Deal in California. His platform included: Support for Labor, Migrant Farm Workers, Latino Politics, Predatory Lending and Unions, Prison Reform, Reform Mental Health Institutions,Guaranteed Old Age Pensions, Universal Healthcare, Regulation of Public Utilities, and Separation of Church and State. He cut the cord with Big Pharma and Big Oil.  In 1938, Culbert O lson won the governorship in a landslide, becoming the first Democratic governor in 44 years. A contender to be FDR’s vice presidential running mate, Olson believed his overwhelming victory was a mandate from the people.  Defiantly, all of his official appointments  were made without discrimination regardless of race, religions, or  gender.


His Inaugural address reflected his humanitarian idealism: “There is none among us who can doubt that the people have voted for a government that shall honestly place human values before material values; that they want a government that will do the human thing, unserved by pressure from any self-seeking group or special interest.”


In 1939, he presented a plan of Universal Healthcare for California that today might have been called “Olsoncare,” Under Gov. Olson’s plan, all working Californians earning $3,000 or less a year (close to $50,000 today) would have been required to be covered. U nfortunately, the health insurance measure was rejected by the more centrist legislature along with Olson’s proposals to raise taxes, regulate lobbyists and make the state’s prison system more humane.


Whatever his trials and tribulations, Olson kept persisting amid every obstacle, amid every mountain of opposition. After leaving office, Olson returned to the practice of law and in 1957, accepted the presidency of the United Secularists of America.  Olson ardently pleaded religion must be abandoned as a guiding philosophy,or the world would end in a bloodbath of war. Furthermore, Olson bravely left Mormonism as a young intellectual, at a time when apostasy from the LDS church could be a death sentence, much like some Islamist sects today.


Always one to speak his mind and never to run from controversy, its no wonder the California State Library rec ently acknowledged Olson as the first governor to honor with a digital exhibit. Supreme Court Justice Stanley Moss said of his former boss, “He was the most honest person I think I’ve ever known”


Proudly, his granddaughter Debra Deanne Olson  continues her grandfather progressive values and ideals. Debra champions The Earth Charter Initiative,  a powerful  framework for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society for the 21st century.  Debra serves on the Boards  of The Coalition for Engaged Education that supports underserved youth  and PeaceChannel.com, an Initiative of The United Nations. She was also the National Senior Advisor and Chief Fundraiser for the Kucinich for President Campaign in 2003.  She designed and implemented the first on-line political fundraising campaigns nationwide. A fierce advocate for gender equality, she has worked as < /span>a consultant and fundraiser for Senators Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein  and Elizabeth Warren.

Biography of California Governor Culbert Levy Olson. A statesman ahead of his time, he was a progressive democratic Governor of California form 1939 to 1943. Known as “The Peoples Governor”, he was a personal friend of President Franklin D. Roosevelt who considered him a possible Vice Presidential running mate. He left the cult religion of Mormonism at an early age and became one of the only atheists to hold high public office in America. In later life he was President of the United Secularists of America. Both his progressive politics, currently prescribed by Senator Bernie Sanders, and his lack of religion are trending today.

Authoritarian Sociopathy


August 23rd, 2013   Submitted by Davi Barker



BlogImage200


Many anarchists and libertarians eagerly study the psychology of tyrants in an effort to know their enemy in the battlefield of politics. Getting into the minds of our enemy is regarded as a strategy, a means to our political ends… which is an end to political means. However, I would suggest that the mind of our enemy is the battlefield itself, and politics is merely one of many strategies. We cannot fight the State with votes, or with cameras, or even with rifles, because factually the State only exists in the mind.


Our common definition for the State is a “monopoly on violence.” This was originally coined by German political philosopher Max Weber, affirmed by Austrian economist Murray Rothbard in his book Anatomy of the State, and even echoed by authoritarian sociopath Barack Obama while campaigning in 2007. This definition is seldom disputed, even by the agents of the State. However, as surely as a pickpocket can knife you in the ribs, the State does not factually enjoy a monopoly on violence. The missing component is an often overlooked, but all important adjective: legitimate. The State is a monopoly on legitimate violence, and legitimacy is the only thing distinguishing a tax collector from a pickpocket, a police officer from a vigilante, or a soldier from a paid murderer. Legitimacy is an illusion in the mind without which the State does not even exist.


This illusion not only exists in the minds of the authoritarians, it exists in the minds of every subject who accepts their oppression. And every place that this illusion finds safe harbor is a trench in the field of battle. If we want to attack the State, we must attack the mind of the Statists. For that reason, the psychology of obedience and authority is not merely a tool in the activists utility belt, it is a topographical map of the battle field itself. So let’s take a look.


Power and Obedience


We’ve all heard of the Milgram Experiment and the Stanford Prison ExperimentI’ve written about them before. So as not to waste your time, I’ll summarize very briefly.


In the Milgram Experiment participants were divided into “teachers” and “learners” and placed in separate rooms. “Teachers” were instructed to read questions to the “learners” and if they answered incorrectly to administer an elecro-shock of ever increasing voltage. The “teachers” were unaware that electro-shocks were fake. After a few volts the “learner” began to object, to complain of a heart condition, and ultimately go silent. If the “teacher” asked to stop he was told by the experimenter,” “the experiment requires that you continue.” 65% administered the experiment’s maximum massive 450-volt shock. The vast majority were willing to administer a lethal jolt of electricity to a complete stranger based upon nothing but the verbal prodding of an authority figure.


In the Stanford Prison Experiment participants were screened for mental health and randomly assigned as “prisoner” or “guard” to live in a two week long prison simulation. Guards were given uniforms, mirrored glasses, and wooden batons. Prisoners were dressed in smocks and addressed only by their prison numbers. Guards were instructed only to keep a fixed schedule, and that they could not physically harm prisoners. The experiment was halted after only six days because guards began to display cruel, even sadistic behavior including spraying prisoners with fire extinguishers, depriving them of bedding or restroom privileges, forcing them to go nude and locking them in “solitary confinement” in a dark closet. After an initial revolt, and a brief hunger strike, prisoners developed submissive attitudes, accepting physical abuse, and readily following orders inflict punishments on each other. They even engaged in horizontal discipline to keep each other in line. Both prisoners and guards fully internalized their fictional identities.


Ethical concerns raised by these experiments has made it almost impossible to study the authoritarian sociopathy in any meaningful way. Still, there have been some more recent studies that flesh out the findings of these classic experiments. Because of the new ethical guidelines the more recent experiments are not as dramatic, but the implications of their results are no less startling.


Power and Deception


Dana Carney is a professor at Columbia University. She conducted an experiment to discover if “leaders” and “subordinates” experience the same physiological stress while lying. She found that power not only makes lying easier, but pleasurable.


Participants filled out a personality test that identified them as “leaders” or “subordinates.” In reality the selection was random, but the fake test created an air of legitimacy to their assignment. Leaders were placed in a large executive office and given an hour of busy work. Subordinates were placed in a small windowless cubical and given an hour of busy work. Then they engaged in a 10 minute mock negotiation over pay.


Afterwards half the participants were given $100 and told they could keep it if they lied and convinced the lead experimenter that they didn’t have it. The experimenter did not know who had the money.


For most people lying elicits negative emotions, cognitive impairment, physiological stress, and nonverbal behavioral cues, which can all be measured. Video of the interviews was reviewed to identify behavioral cues. Saliva samples were tested for increases in the stress hormone cortisol. Tests of reaction time were conducted on the computer to demonstrate cognitive impairment. And a mood survey assessed participants’ emotional states during the experiment.


By every measure “subordinates” exhibited all the indicators of deception, but liars in the “leader” class exhibited the exact opposite. By every measure “leaders” were indistinguishable from truth-tellers. In fact, they enjoyed reduced stress levels, increased cognitive function and reported positive emotions. Only “subordinates” reported feeling bad about lying.


Professor Carney concludes, “Power will lead to increases in intensity and frequency of lying.”


Lying comes easier, and is inherently more pleasurable, to those in power, even fake authority. In other words, power rewards dishonesty with pleasure.


Power and Compassion


Psychologist Gerben A. Van Kleef from the University of Amsterdam conducted an experiment to identify how power influences emotional reactions to the suffering of others. Participants filled out a questionnaire about their own sense of power in their actual lives and were identified as “high-power” and “lower-power” individuals. Then they were randomly paired off to take turns sharing personal stories of great pain, or emotional suffering.


During the exchange the stress levels of both participants was measured by electrocardiogram (ECG) machines, and afterward they filled out a second questionnaire describing their own emotional experience, and what they perceived of their partner’s emotional experienced.


You guessed it. Increased stress in the story teller correlated with increased stress in listener for low-power subjects, but not for high-power subjects. In other words, low-power individuals experienced the suffering of others, but high-power individuals experienced greater detachment. After the experiment high-power listeners self-reported being unmotivated to empathize with their partner. In other words, they saw the emotions of others, but they just didn’t care. After the experiment, researchers inquired about whether participants would like to stay in touch with their partners. As you might expect, the low-power subjects liked the idea, but the high-power subjects didn’t.


Power and Hypocrisy


It has become almost a cliche that the most outspoken anti-gay politicians are in fact closet homosexuals themselves, and the champions of “traditional family values” are engaged in extramarital affairs. Nothing is more common than the fiscal conservative who demands ridiculous luxuries at the taxpayer’s expense, or the anti-war progressive who takes campaign donations from the military industrial complex. Well, now it seems there’s some science behind the hypocrisy of those in power.


Joris Lammers, from Tilburg University, and Adam Galinsky of Kellogg School of Management conducted a battery of five experiments to test how power influences a person’s moral standards, specifically whether they were likely to behave immorally while espousing intolerance for the behavior of others. In each of five experiments the results were about what you’d expect. Powerful people judge others more harshly but cheat more themselves. But in the last experiment they distinguished between legitimate power and illegitimate power and got the opposite results.


In the first experiment subjects were randomly assigned to as “high-power” or “low-power.” To induce these feelings “high-power” subjects were asked to recall an experience where they felt powerful, and “low-power” subjects were asked to recall an experience where they felt powerless. They were asked to rate how immoral they considered cheating, and then they were given an opportunity to cheat at dice. The high-power subjects considered cheating a higher moral infraction than low-power subjects, but were also more likely to cheat themselves.


In the second experiment participants conducted a mock-government. Half were randomly assigned as “high-power” roles which gave orders to the half randomly given “low-power” roles. Then each group was asked about minor traffic violations, such as speeding, or rolling through stop signs. As expected, high-power subjects were more likely to to bend the rules themselves, but less likely to afford other drivers the same leniency.


In the third experiment participants were divided as in the first experiment, by recalling a personal experience. Each group was asked about their feelings about minor common tax evasions, such as not declaring freelance income. As expected, high-power subjects were more willing to bend the rules themselves, but less likely to afford others the same leniency.


In the fourth experiment participants were asked to complete a series of word puzzles. Half the participants were randomly given puzzles containing high-power words, and the other half were given puzzles containing low power words. Then all participants were asked what they’d do if they found an abandoned bike on the side of the road. As in all experiments, even with such an insignificant power disparity, those in the high-power group were more likely to say they would keep the bike, but also that others had an obligation to seek out the rightful owner, or turn the bike over to the police.


The fifth and final experiment yielded, by far, the most interesting results. The feeling of power was induced the same as the first and third experiment, where participants describe their own experience of power in their life, with one important distinction. This time the “high-power” class was divided in two. One group was asked to describe an experience of legitimate power, and the other was asked to describe an experience of illegitimate power.


The legitimate high-power group showed the same hypocrisy as in the previous four experiments. But those who viewed their power as illegitimate actually gave the opposite results. Researchers dubbed it “hypercrisy.” They were harsher about their own transgressions, and more lenient toward others. This discovery could be the silver bullet we’ve been looking for. The researchers speculate that the vicious cycle of power and hypocrisy could be broken by attacking the legitimacy of power, rather than the power itself. As they write in their conclusion:


“A question that lies at the heart of the social sciences is how this status-quo (power inequality) is defended and how the powerless come to accept their disadvantaged position. The typical answer is that the state and its rules, regulations, and monopoly on violence coerce the powerless to do so. But this cannot be the whole answer… Our last experiment found that the spiral of inequality can be broken, if the illegitimacy of the power-distribution is revealed. One way to undermine the legitimacy of authority is open revolt, but a more subtle way in which the powerless might curb self enrichment by the powerful is by tainting their reputation, for example by gossiping. If the powerful sense that their unrestrained self enrichment leads to gossiping, derision, and the undermining of their reputation as conscientious leaders, then they may be inspired to bring their behavior back to their espoused standards. If they fail to do so, they may quickly lose their authority, reputation, and— eventually—their power.”


Those in power are more likely to lie, cheat and steal while also being harsher in their judgments of others for doing these things. They feel less compassion for the suffering of others, and are even capable of the torture and murder of innocent people. What’s perhaps most disturbing is that we have seen that the problem is not that sociopaths are drawn to positions of authority, but that positions of authority draw out the sociopath in everyone. But this final experiment offers some hope that authoritarian sociopathy can not only be stopped, but driven into reverse, not by violence or revolution, but simply by undermining their legitimacy. But how?


Reclaiming Lost Ground


Those who attack the legitimacy of the authority by trumpeting the results of the Stanford Prison Experiment and the Milgram Experiment have likely never heard of these  other experiments because they’re just less dramatic. Without the shock value the research just doesn’t impact the culture. Changes to the ethical guidelines have essentially neutered research on authoritarian sociopathy. It has been relegated to the water cooler banter of academics.


If the illegitimate ethical guidelines of legacy institutions hamstring meaningful research on authoritarian sociopathy then it is time for us to cast off such restrictions, and devise our own guidelines consistent with our own ethics. If court professors will not spread their findings beyond their classrooms and peer reviewed journals then it is time to conduct our own renegade psychological experiments, to show the world beyond doubt that power corrupts absolutely.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s World Mercury Project delivers vaccine safety details to Congress


Image: Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s World Mercury Project delivers vaccine safety details to Congress

(Natural News)
Vaccine safety champion and medical choice advocate Robert F. Kennedy and his World Mercury Project have delivered a promised report to Congress providing details on a six-step program to “introduce sound science and transparency to our vaccination program” for children, according to an announcement by the organization.

The organization said that 15 like-minded advocates joined Kennedy on Capitol Hill “to fulfill our promise to the community” in providing data they said would dramatically improve child vaccine safety.

“Federally elected officials can no longer ignore the chronic health conditions — tied in no small part to adverse vaccine reactions — that currently affect over half our nation’s children,” the statement said. “Not only are these officials now aware of the conflicts of interest and inadequate science upon which the vaccine program is built, but they have been given a common-sense plan for enacting desperately needed changes that puts children’s health first.”

For those unfamiliar with the World Mercury Project’s work, it’s “mission is to raise public awareness of the dangers and sources of mercury, with the ultimate goal of banning all uses of mercury on a global level,” according to the group’s website. Kennedy is the group’s chairman; he was recruited to the organization in the early 2000s because he was already a leading environmentalist and anti-mercury champion. Once he learned about the damage being caused by toxic mercury-based preservative thimerosal, which is used in vaccines, he was more than willing to join the fight.

The group noted in meetings with lawmakers last week that the long-term effects of the nation’s childhood vaccine program have not been sufficiently studied, while U.S. regulatory agencies are “conflicted” over the issue of vaccine safety.

“Childhood epidemics have mushroomed along with the childhood vaccine schedule,” the group noted, adding that many vaccines are known to be neurotoxic, carcinogenic, and can cause autoimmunity.

The group makes these recommendations:

— All vaccines must be subject to a “scientifically rigorous approval process;”

— There must be a reporting system established to notify federal agencies of adverse vaccine events to include automation of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) databases for the research purposes;

— Make sure that all parties involved with approving vaccines are completely free from conflicts of interest;

— Before adopting evidence-based guidelines, all vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) should be reevaluated;

— Studies regarding what makes some people more susceptible to vaccine injury should be funded and conducted;

— The government should support fully-informed consent practices as well as an individual’s right to refuse to be vaccinated.

“Vaccines, which are given to healthy patients, should be tested more rigorously than drugs because they are not given to treat an existing disease,” the World Mercury Project noted.

“Inadequate testing currently ensures that the true risk/benefit assessments for the safety and cost of vaccines are impossible to calculate accurately,” the group continued, yet those vaccines are given to around four million American infants every year. (Related: How Big Pharma gets away with injecting children with neurotoxic heavy metals.)

The group further noted that current forms of reporting and studying of adverse events after receipt of vaccines “is…haphazard and antiquated.” The WMP recommends dramatically updating reporting requirements, adding that currently, the federal Department of Health and Human Services “likely only records about 1% of the actual adverse events…”

As for vaccine testing, the WMP recommends a wider clinical trial set for vaccines. Now, trials “typically only enroll a few thousand patients in total,” the group said. “When vaccines are subsequently approved for use in populations of millions of healthy individuals, it is imperative that rates of known adverse events and any new or rare adverse events are monitored.”

“America is in the midst of many childhood epidemics. Over 50% of our children are chronically ill. We owe it to our children to examine what is happening to their health and correct it as soon as possible,” the group said.
