Libya’s Slave Auctions And African Genocide: What Hillary Knew

Posted by addisethiopia on November 16, 2017

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in “liberated” Libya, but CNN’s crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Though CNN’s footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libya’s black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATO’s war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded the alarm of a genocide against black Libyans in progress committed by the very rebels the US, UK, France, and Gulf allies were arming – a fact so well-known that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was personally briefed and warned on the matter.

The Dangerous Myth of Gaddafi’s “African Mercenaries”

Among the foremost of these early critics at the time, Maximilian Forte, Associate Professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, published a 2012 book which exhaustively documented racially motivated crimes which came early and often during the armed uprising. His book, Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa, contains essential summary context laying out the role that international media played in 2011 and after, including CNN itself, in fueling the xenophobic campaign to scapegoat Libya’s over one million strong black population as “pro-Gaddafi mercenaries”.

According to Professor Forte:

Racial fear and xenophobia were at the very crux of the first public calls for Western military intervention, and were the basis for the first utterance of the need for a “no-fly zone” … The myth of the “African mercenary” was useful for the Libyan opposition, the NTC [National Transitional Council] and the militias, to insist that this was a war between “Gaddafi and the Libyan people,” as if he had no domestic support at all…

As Patrick Cockburn explained, the insurgents’ “explanation for the large pro-Gaddafi forces was that they were all mercenaries, mostly from black Africa, whose only motive was money.”

Gaddafi’s ‘pan-Africanist’ policies such as aggressive support for the creation of the African Union (in 2002), and a relatively open immigration policy allowing for the influx of sub-Saharan African migrants to work on Gaddafi’s massive building projects, stirred resentment and discontent within broader Arab Libyan society in the decade leading up to the 2011 war. This was the historical background which set the stage for the anti-Gaddafi rebels’ extraordinary claim that sub-Saharan “foreign mercenaries” were being used en masse by Gaddafi to target protesters (later proven false).

And these historic ethnic and racial dynamics were well understood by the US government long before official support to Libyan militant groups began – militants which were not only shown to have al-Qaeda links, but which declared “open season” on all black Libyans and migrant workers during the revolution. As the CIA’s own historical analysis of Libya’s internal dynamics spells out:

QADHAFI in 1998 adopted a decade-long pan-African policy that enabled large numbers of sub-Saharan migrants to enter Libya without visas to work in the construction and agricultural industries. Although sub-Saharan Africans provided a cheap labor source, they were poorly treated and were subjected to periodic mass expulsions. By the mid-2000s, domestic animosity toward African migrants

Similar to later developments in Syria, the media would uncritically echo whatever the “freedom fighting” rebels would feed it, thus this black foreign mercenary trope became an unquestioned reality spread from rebel propagandists to the Western public. Libyan opposition members even began claiming to be victims of wild attacks by roving bands of machete-wielding pro-Gaddafi blacks wearing tell-tale yellow hard hats – a symbol which also falsely began to be associated with “Gaddafi’s savage mercenaries” – resulting in subsequent mass arrests and executions of innocent black migrant construction workers.

CNN Spread the “Black Mercenary” Lie

The end result would of course be the widespread targeting and scapegoating of an entire ethnic population within Libya. This is demonstrated, for example, in the most well-known example of Tawergha, an entire town of 30,000 black and “dark-skinned” Libyans which vanished by August 2011 after its takeover by NATO-backed NTC Misratan brigades.

But it is important to remember that CNN itself at the time regularly promoted the false “black mercenary” narrative which helped fuel and excuse such atrocities, even though it is now much belatedly investigating and decrying Libya’s current migrant slave auctions, while leaving out the essential context which enabled such horrors in the first place. For example, the following February 2011 CNN reporting relied on unnamed opposition sources during the earliest days of the conflict to say:

Residents said hundreds of mercenaries from sub-Saharan Africa had been killed or captured while fighting for Gadhafi, but much of the army appears to have gone over to anti-government forces.

And a separate CNN article from the same month – though acknowledging that no CNN journalists were even inside the country – still uncritically reported:

Clashes broke out between a large crowd of demonstrators and people who appeared to be African mercenaries in the center of the city, according to an activist.

Yet another broadcast segment from February 2011 – the clip of which appears to have since been deleted from CNN’s site (but which is available on YouTube), asks the question: in Libya “just who is doing the dirty work?” – while answering that Gaddafi imported Chadian and Sudanese mercenaries to crack down on civilian protesters.

And those few examples are but a tiny sampling of CNN’s consistent spreading the dangerous myth throughout the early stages of the conflict – to say nothing of how ubiquitous the false rebel claims became among mainstream media generally.

US-backed Rebels and Ethnic Genocide

One of the few international correspondents to actually report the truth in real time while writing from inside Libya was The Independent’s (UK) Patrick Cockburn. In an August 2011 story he wrote as if attempting to warn the world about the future war crimes to come at the hands of the US-backed rebels:

The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya’s future. The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labelled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.

Subsequent stories of widespread torture and executions of black Libyans included a 2012 report in UK media which involved anti-Gaddafi “revolutionaries” filming themselves torturing black prisoners, making them eat the former Libyan national flag.

If reporters like Cockburn and even prominent human rights organizations (see Human Rights Watch, September 2011, Libya: Stop Arbitrary Arrests of Black Africans) understood what was happening months prior to height of NATO’s military campaign in support of the rebels, which ended in the brutal torture and field execution of Gaddafi, then what did one of the prime US architects of the war, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton know and when did she know it?

What Hillary Knew

The answer lies in a March 27, 2011, intelligence brief on Libya published by WikiLeaks. The brief, which was made public in 2015 as part of a large batch of Hillary emails released by the State Department, was sent by long time close adviser to the Clinton family and Hillary’s personal intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, and contains clear reference to rebels summarily executing “all foreign mercenaries” – which had already become the common euphemism for black Libyans then being targeted by the US-supported rebels.

Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary:

Under attack from allied Air and Naval forces, the Libyan Army troops have begun to desert to the rebel side in increasing numbers. The rebels are making an effort to greet these troops as fellow Libyans, in an effort to encourage additional defections.

Source Comment: Speaking in strict confidence, one rebel commander stated that his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting…

Hillary Emails show UK, French, Egyptian special forces were secretly in Libya providing arms to “protestors” https://t.co/SyRhaYeLGI

WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 25, 2016

And further interesting is that the line immediately following the acknowledgement of war crimes against “foreign mercenaries” indicates that a long time CIA supported Libyan exile was then taking command of the very militants committing those summary executions.

The email continues:

At the same time Colonel Khalifa Haftar has reportedly joined the rebel command structure, in an effort to help organization the rebel forces.

Khalifa Haftar has since 2011 become a mainstay in Libya’s post-Gaddafi chaos, heading up one of the three to four governments (at any given time) claiming authority in the war-torn country. Haftar has been widely acknowledged as the “CIA’s man” during his two decade long exile in the US, as a BBC profile explained: “His proximity to the CIA’s headquarters in Langley hinted at a close relationship with US intelligence services, who gave their backing to several attempts to assassinate Gaddafi.”

CIA’s Khalifa Haftar and Mass Executions

Meanwhile, Haftar is currently being eyed by international prosecutors for continuing to commit war crimes in Libya. One month ago The Guardian reported, “Ex-CIA asset Khalifa Haftar, due to meet Italian officials in Rome, ordered soldiers to kill prisoners, according to legal experts.” The Guardian cites video evidence which proves he continues to be “complicit in calling for extrajudicial killings.”

And yesterday Al Jazeera reported that a formal suit has been filed against Haftar at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for “carrying out mass executions and torture.” Another recent Guardian report which details torture and rape being carried out against prisoners held under Haftar’s militia alliance, includes the following eyewitness account of the torture of African migrant detainees:

There was a black man, a migrant. In the evening, they threw him into one of our cells: ‘You rape this guy, otherwise, you’re dead!’”

Then Secretary of State Clinton understood in early 2011 what was happening concerning the rebel genocidal targeting of black Libyans and African migrants, yet pushed to arm the rebels and overthrow Gaddafi anyway. She was given the intelligence brief which gave evidence this was happening on March 27, 2011. But even without such a classified intelligence report personally delivered to her, such war crimes were so well known that a full month prior on February 28, 2011, Al Jazeera could publish the following story entitled, African Migrants Targetted in Libya:

As nations evacuate their citizens from the violence gripping Libya, many African migrant workers are targeted because they are suspected of being mercenaries hired by Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader.

Dozens of workers from sub-Saharan Africa are feared killed, and hundreds are in hiding, as angry mobs of anti-government protesters hunt down “black African mercenaries,” according to witnesses.

“No Regrets”

But even years later, as such race-based war crimes have now been exhaustively documented, Hillary has consistently indicated that she has no regrets. Though her beloved Libyan rebels, legitimized and empowered through broad support from the West, were literally killing people based on the color of their skin, not a single one has ever been convicted in a court of law or punished for their crimes.

Moreover, Hillary has never so much as hinted at the problem, though her public stature would allow her a world-wide platform to speak against atrocities at any time, possibly preventing further crimes. Instead, she has simply chosen to conclude her role in the tragic story of Libya with her crazed and gleeful declaration of “we came, we saw, he died.”

My Note: Another perfect example of the Esau & Ishmael alliance for the endless African and Christian genocide. They will all burn in hell! Shame on those Africans who, in any manner, collaborate with these demonic evils!

Egyptian Lawyer Says It Is a ‘National Duty’ for Men to Rape Girls Who Wear Ripped Jeans

Posted by addisethiopia on November 1, 2017

An Egyptian lawyer has sparked outrage after telling a national television audience it is his “patriotic and national duty” to harass and rape young girls who wear revealing clothes including ripped jeans.

Nabih al-Wahsh said women wearing clothing should be punished. He warned:

Are you happy when you see a girl walking down the street with half of her behind showing? I say that when a girl walks about like that, it is a patriotic duty to sexually harass her and a national duty to rape her.”

The shock remarks came in a panel show broadcast on Al-Assema during a debate over a draft law on prostitution and sparked outrage across the country. Egypt’s National Council for Women now plans to file a complaint against the lawyer and the TV channel.

The council also urged media outlets not to host controversial figures who make remarks that incite violence against women.

The furore follows last month’s revelation that Cairo is the world’s most dangerous megacity for women, and has become more perilous since the 2011 uprisings.

France 24 reports that Cairo came in last of 19 megacities for its ability to protect women from harassment and rape on its streets.

A study conducted by the Egyptian Centre for Women’s Rights in 2008 found that 83 percent of women said they’d been sexually harassed, many of them daily, and 62 percent of men admitted to harassing women; advocates believe the percentage of women harassed is significantly higher.

Rush Limbaugh: “I Honestly Think Bill And Hillary Will Get The Harvey Weinstein Treatment Before Too Long.”

Posted by addisethiopia on October 28, 2017

Rush Limbaugh ‘livid’ Over ‘the Scandal Of All Scandals’

‘This thing is just a totally made-up piece of cr-p’

It’s the biggest scandal to hit Washington in years, and it may be “the scandal of all scandals,” according to radio powerhouse Rush Limbaugh.

I am so outraged, livid, angry about this. I’m doing my best to contain it,” Limbaugh said Wednesday on his national broadcast.

The scandal enraging the self-proclaimed doctor of democracy is the revelation that the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid to create a fake Russian dossier about Donald Trump, the result of which has been months of allegations about collusion with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election to Trump.

There was no dossier!” Limbaugh exclaimed. “It’s nothing more than made-up drivel bought and paid for as opposition research by Hillary Clinton and her campaign and the Democrat National Committee. They treated it as genuine and legitimate intelligence. Did they secure FISA warrants to tap and investigate people on the basis of this opposition research? They tried to pass opposition research off as legitimate intelligence. I cannot emphasize that enough. For over a year, people have been told that the contents of this dossier – which contains the story of the golden showers.

This is where Trump found himself in Moscow and was told that he and Melania were staying in the same hotel suite that Barack and Michelle Obama had stayed in, and so the dossier – among other things – claims that Trump called some prostitutes over and had ’em urinate on the bed. This dossier also said that one of Trump–’s lawyers had had a secret meeting with Russians – in the Czech Republic, I believe. And it was later learned that this guy has never been in the Czech Republic!”

Limbaugh summarized the dossier itself by noting: “This thing is just a totally made-up piece of cr-p.”

All of this is B.S. It is literally toxic B.S. John Brennan, the director of the CIA, said it was the basis of the CIA’s investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russia, for which there still is no evidence, for which there will not be any evidence because of: It didn’t happen!”

Limbaugh called out not only Mrs. Clinton and Brennan by name, but also top officials including James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence and U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who has pushed to probe Trump’s supposed collusion with Moscow.

They are vicious partisans,” Limbaugh said. “They feel so entitled to power that they feel freely capable and entitled to actually ruining people in the pursuit of their power. They are so entitled to it that they think it’s nothing to literally lie and destroy and ruin people in order to get what they believe they are entitled to.

The president of the United States is involved. Barack Hussein Obama. It was his CIA director; it was his administration treating opposition research – bought-and-paid-for opposition research – as legitimate intelligence. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the FBI directors. That would be Robert Mueller and James Comey. A special counsel. That would be Mueller. A Democrat nominee for president and her husband, the Clintons – a former president – are all involved in this. And one of those former FBI directors is investigating who? Donald Trump?

I’m sorry, folks. I can’t take it, and it’s not because I’m offended at what they did to Trump. I’m offended at how they lie to me. I’m offended how they lie to you. I’m offended at the very actions they have taken here: Corrupting, corrupting the CIA, corrupting the office of national intelligence, corrupting everything they touch in pursuit of their own power while lying to everybody about somebody else: Donald Trump and his family and people he worked with. Look at the people whose lives have already been damaged by this! Michael Flynn. Jeff Sessions.”

Limbaugh continued: “People have had their homes raided predawn by SWAT teams over a fake opposition research document prepared by Hillary Clinton, the Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee that we were told was legitimate intelligence. There are a lot of people on our side who believed a grain of it could have been true! I have also been stunned – and I mean stunned – to learn during the course of all this that there are some people who voted for Trump, who are eagerly still pro-Trump on our side, who thought there might have been something to this.”

Limbaugh also lamented the lack of mainstream-media coverage about the new information.

This is one of the biggest bombshell revelations in my memory. Let me ask you a question: If the news had broken that Donald Trump had hired someone to forge a Barack Hussein Obama birth certificate showing him born in Kenya after a year of claiming something other than that, do you think you’d know about it? Do you think the cable networks, the news networks would be talking about it? Do you think it’d be front page of the New York Times if that kind of slanderous, fake, phony stuff had been presented as intelligence, learned and used by the CIA? Damn well it would!”

But the radio voice thinks it won’t be too long before powerful leftists and the media work to remove the Clintons from the public arena.

I honestly think Bill and Hillary will get the Harvey Weinstein treatment before too long,” Limbaugh said.

This Trump-Russia collusion has been 99 percent of the effort to get rid of Trump, and they have just effectively admitted that the whole thing was a hoax, that for a year they’ve been pursing things that didn’t happen. They obviously want to get rid of her very badly.”

Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?

Posted by addisethiopia on September 23, 2017

More comfortable online than out partying, post-Millennials are safer, physically, than adolescents have ever been. But they’re on the brink of a mental-health crisis.

ne day last summer, around noon, I called Athena, a 13-year-old who lives in Houston, Texas. She answered her phone—she’s had an iPhone since she was 11—sounding as if she’d just woken up. We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. “We go to the mall,” she said. “Do your parents drop you off?,” I asked, recalling my own middle-school days, in the 1980s, when I’d enjoy a few parent-free hours shopping with my friends. “No—I go with my family,” she replied. “We’ll go with my mom and brothers and walk a little behind them. I just have to tell my mom where we’re going. I have to check in every hour or every 30 minutes.”

Those mall trips are infrequent—about once a month. More often, Athena and her friends spend time together on their phones, unchaperoned. Unlike the teens of my generation, who might have spent an evening tying up the family landline with gossip, they talk on Snapchat, the smartphone app that allows users to send pictures and videos that quickly disappear. They make sure to keep up their Snapstreaks, which show how many days in a row they have Snapchatted with each other. Sometimes they save screenshots of particularly ridiculous pictures of friends. “It’s good blackmail,” Athena said. (Because she’s a minor, I’m not using her real name.) She told me she’d spent most of the summer hanging out alone in her room with her phone. That’s just the way her generation is, she said. “We didn’t have a choice to know any life without iPads or iPhones. I think we like our phones more than we like actual people.”

I’ve been researching generational differences for 25 years, starting when I was a 22-year-old doctoral student in psychology. Typically, the characteristics that come to define a generation appear gradually, and along a continuum. Beliefs and behaviors that were already rising simply continue to do so. Millennials, for instance, are a highly individualistic generation, but individualism had been increasing since the Baby Boomers turned on, tuned in, and dropped out. I had grown accustomed to line graphs of trends that looked like modest hills and valleys. Then I began studying Athena’s generation.

Around 2012, I noticed abrupt shifts in teen behaviors and emotional states. The gentle slopes of the line graphs became steep mountains and sheer cliffs, and many of the distinctive characteristics of the Millennial generation began to disappear. In all my analyses of generational data—some reaching back to the 1930s—I had never seen anything like it.

CNN Just Got Hit by a Massive Truth Bomb–The Facts of Life Are Conservative

Posted by addisethiopia on June 28, 2017

Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now.”

And there you have it, a CNN producer, caught on camera, frankly admitting that “fake news” isn’t some regrettable accident of the 24-hour news cycle.

Fake news” is CNN’s entire business model. (The business model of quite a few other liberal MSM outlets too, if the tantalizing hints being dropped by James O’Keefe are to be believed…)

As a fellow human being I feel sorry for the poor guy caught on camera by Project Veritasadmitting this stuff — because he’s probably going to lose his job.

But as a fellow journalist I feel about as much sympathy for him as I do for all those idiot jihadists who go out to fight in Raqqa and Mosul, lured by the cool videos of the beards, black flags, and AKs with the wailing soundtrack. Did they seriously imagine when they joined ISIS/CNN that it was all just going to be about the glamour and the hot chicks and the purity of the noble cause?

And I’m really not being high minded here. It just seems to me that one of the most basic, entry-level precepts that any serious news organization ought to be observe – and that CNN most patently never has observed, or not for a very, very long time – is this:

Facts are sacred. The truth always makes the best story. You do not make shit up.

Not only ought this stuff to be obvious, but it ought to come instinctively. Isn’t the whole attraction of joining an unglamorous, overworked, underpaid trade like journalism that you want to discover the truth about the world: all the stuff that they would rather you didn’t know?

That’s certainly been my own experience in the last few years covering the climate change/enviro-lunacy beat. I’ve never much enjoyed all the flak I’ve got from the left-wing media; still less have I liked being rejected by so many friends. But the thing that has kept me going through the hard times is that I know I’m doing good and making a real difference: there are some devious bastards out there doing terrible stuff and I’m exposing their knavery and holding them to account.

For any self-respecting journalist, I’d call that “job done.”

Sometimes I get asked by people on the other side of the argument: “What if you’re wrong?”

Here’s the first thing I’ll do if I’m wrong about climate change. I’ll write a big piece explaining why I’m wrong. Then I’ll find someone who is prepared to pay me for writing the opposite of what I do now.

This isn’t because I’m a moral paragon. It’s because I’m lazy and because I prefer the easier life: writing journalism where you have to keep making up your “facts” is much, much harder than doing what I do now, which is basically, copying out true facts and then adding a few nice adjectives and thinking up a snarky final sentence.

That said, I would have to concede that this is much easier to do if you’re politically on the right rather than on the left.

Margaret Thatcher once said “The facts of life are conservative.” And as in so many things, she was absolutely spot on. This, as you can imagine, makes life very, very difficult for people in the overcrowded left-wing media. (It’s overcrowded because so many journalists think they’re left wing).

Every day, they wake up to a world where: Israel is the only functioning democracy in the Middle East with the best human rights record; socialism is failing everywhere it is being tried from Venezuela to North Korea; the worst, most fascistic acts of violence and intolerance are being committed by left-wing people calling themselves “anti-fascists”; Islam is not a “religion of peace”; Trump is doing a great job as president — way, way better than his predecessor Obama; man-made climate change is the biggest scam in the history of science, politics, or economics…

And somehow they’ve got to construct stories demonstrating the opposite because it’s what their dumb-assed audiences want to hear.

How, if you’re running a left-wing media organization, do you reconcile this yawning gulf between the facts on the ground and your preferred political narrative?

Simple: you remake the world so that black is white and white is black; you create your own facts.

The liberal media has achieved this in myriad ways: selective reporting; emotive storytelling where opinion masquerades as news; targeting and vicious demonizing of anyone on the other side of the argument; the extensive quotation and celebration of people on the left who have successfully infiltrated schools, universities, branches of government, and other institutions both public and private, so that their skewed version of events becomes the official narrative.

But perhaps the deadliest weapon in the liberal media’s armory is this: the continual pretence it makes that its news reporting is fair, balanced, and honest; that it is constantly striving after objective truth; that only its enemies in the malign right-wing press are guilty of biased journalism.

And for years organizations like CNN — not to mention the New York Times, the Washington Post and their various UK counterparts like the Guardian and the BBC — have been getting away with this because, as someone once said (maybe Churchill, maybe Lenin, maybe Mark Twain — no one is quite sure), “a lie is half way round the world before the truth has got his boots on.”

One of the malign consequences of this deliberate and cynical lie (which comes straight out of the Leninist playbook) is that conservative media outlets have been continually forced onto the back foot, forever having to defend themselves against the charge that they serve up politicised news designed to advance their right wing agenda.

Which they do, of course. Fox News does it. Breitbart does it. The Daily Caller does it. The Sun and the Daily Mail do it. Every one of them is undoubtedly guilty of serving up journalism with a right wing slant.

The key element missing from this particular calumny is that the left wing media demonstrates at least as much bias, if not more. It just won’t admit it.

CNN Caught On Hidden Cam Saying Russian Thing Is BS

Posted by addisethiopia on June 27, 2017

Project Veritas, the undercover news group devoted to exposing how the establishment really thinks, got a CNN producer on camera to admit that the news network’s coverage of the phony Trump colluded with Russia story is a cynical effort to whip up ratings, a false narrative promoted to make money, not a bid to report the news as a first draft of history.

Hence, its wall-to-wall coverage of the Democrats’ Russia narrative, despite there being no there there. CNN has mentioned Russia 60,000 times since President Trump was inaugurated.

Here’s the thinking behind the obsession that has occupied a huge part of the Trump presidency:

Speaking on camera, CNN supervising producer John Bonifield in Atlanta told Project Veritas:

Project Veritas: The more CNN is constantly like Russia this, Russia that…

Bonifield: Because it’s ratings.

Project Veritas: Because it’s ratings?

Bonifield: Our ratings are incredible right now.

After that, he admitted there was little substance to the story – the network was just catering to what its leftist viewers wanted to hear:

Project Veritas: But honestly you think the whole thing is just like bullshit

It could be bullshit. It’s mostly bullshit right now, like we don’t have any big giant proof.

I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging. So I think the president is probably right to say like ‘ook you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.’

And why did think it was a false narrative? Because if there were any substance to the story…

Bonifield: It would leak. If it was something really good, it would leak.

and

Bonifield: The leaks keep leaking I just refuse to believe that if they had something really good like that, it wouldn’t leak. (inaudible) I just feel like the don’t really have it but they want to keep digging.

Bonifield suggested it was ratings-driven and it came from the top. The CEO of the network, he said, told the editors:

“Good job covering the climate accords but we are done, let’s move back to Russia.”

Bonifield also admitted he was cynical and most of his colleagues were, too. Questioned about journalistic ethics, he said with withering sarcasm: “that’s adorable.”

So what can be said is going on? CNN is no longer a news network – it’s more a whip-up-the-left operation, to make leftists feel good about their crazed anti-Trump suspicions. It’s ratings-driven, not news-driven. And it’s interfering with what President Trump was put into office by voters to do.

It’s a strange beast these days. It’s not really about news. It’s about fake news.

James O Keefe in the above video:

The American people are fade up with fake news, and the mainstream media they can not trust, it’s corporate greed, market pressures, Managers without integrity, newsroom boses without courage, journalists who don’t even leave their desks.

The Very Purpose of Journalism is to Expose the World for What it Is – Not to Create False Political Narratives nor to Make Money.

Biased Daily Mail | Primitive Fake News Against Ethiopians

Posted by addisethiopia on June 23, 2017

The following stories will show us how biased and hateful the sensationalist British media is towards Ethiopia and Ethiopians. The following are some of the reports published by the Daily Mail – only in the last couple of weeks – during a Spring of lazy journalism.

In every case, you’ll notice that the language and imagery used are primitive, monotonous and tiresome.

British media waited for days to reveal the identity of both the Manchester and London Islamic terrorists. Even Police don’t release the suspect’s names now. Astonishing, they’re still struggling to openly and truthfully talk about the danger and menace of Islam. Please read here about the hypocrisy of Daily Mail’s pharisee par-excellence, Pierce Morgan.

On the other hand – as the 2nd example demonstrates — they immediately brought the name and origin of the Grenfell Tower resident whose fridge is reported to have started the tower block fire.

Perhaps they are just following a strict order from their deep-state masters:

Example 1

The Story of the ‘Raped’ Hungarian Woman in Germany

a. This incident occurred last year. Only the court case was presented this week, nobody knows yet whether the accuser was right or wrong (I personally doubt her dubious allegation) But the Daily Mail reports as if the alleged rape took place this week.

b. The identity of the alleged rapists is revealed by the German Media as ERITREANS. And they’re indeed Eritreans. But the Daily Mail wrote, „Hungarian woman said ETHIOPIAN men attacked her… „

Example 2

The London Tower Block Fire

The Ethiopian to blame – The Boogeyman

The following story and supplementary video explain why they rushed to find a scapegoat with the Ethiopian taxi driver – everything was pre-planned for a potential „Ethiopian Spring„:

1,500 Complain To IPSO over Mail Online Story Naming Grenfell Tower Resident ‘whose Fridge Exploded’


Press regulator IPSO has received more than 1,500 complaints over a Mail Online story which names and pictures a Grenfell Tower resident whose fridge is reported to have started last week’s devastating London tower block fire.

Some 27,000 people have also signed an online petition urging the Daily Mail and The Sun to “take down all images, mentions of his name and all content linking him to the source of this fire immediately”.

The man has been widely named in other newspapers along with the theory that his fridge started the fire.

The petition says: “Regardless of where the fire began, fire safety experts have made it abundantly clear that a fire safe building would have been able to contain the fire and prevent it spreading. The rapid and unusual spread of the fire begs questions of the institutions responsible for the building, not the residents.”

The Mail Online story is headlined: “The man ‘whose faulty fridge started tower inferno’: Neighbor reveals how Ethiopian taxi driver raised the alarm when deadly blaze started in his fourth-floor kitchen.”

It was punished at 7.15am on Thursday 15 June, the day after the tragedy.

The Sun story was initially headlined: “First pictures of mini cab driver whose faulty fridge started Grenfell Tower fire”.

The headline was then changed to: “Owner of the Grenfell Tower flat where inferno started tells of agony as death toll is feared to top 100”.

The Sun story was published at 4pm on 15 June. There have been 13 complaints to IPSO about The Sun story.

A Mirror story published at around the same time as The Sun piece, covering similar ground, does not appear to have generated similar attention.

A guide on how to complain about The Sun and Mail Online articles has been circulating on Facebook.

It claims that reports saying the fridge of the man, a 41-year-old taxi driver, started the blaze are:

Inaccurate (because the fire investigation has not been completed)

Breach his privacy

Constitute harassment

And also amount to intrusion into grief or shock.

These all constitute alleged breaches of the Editors’ Code.

A spokesperson for Mail Online said: “In common with several other media outlets Mail Online identified where and how the Grenfell Tower fire started.

It attached no blame whatsoever to the occupant of that flat and in fact details how he raised the alarm and alerted his neighbors personally.

For the record Mail Online believes that, while much is still unclear, the blame for this tragedy lies squarely with those responsible for managing and renovating the tower and the authorities in charge of the policies and safety regulations within which they were operating.

This has been and remains the focus of Mail Online’s extensive coverage from the outset.

It didn’t seem to us that naming the resident would be seen as blaming him since we did not see how any reasonable person could possibly hold him responsible.”

Other graphic examples of twisted and hostile nature:

The Daily Mail reporters seem to speak with the same snaky lying tongue like the lady on this story:

Someone has even come up with a non-existent demonic term, „in the Post Truth era„ to brainwash the masses by manipulating and twisting the universal truth.

The Whole Country (UK) is Rocked by Terrorism, Fires and Hot Weather”

Finsbury Park: When ‘Terrorism’ Becomes A Useful Word

We don’t even have the name of the attacker of the London Finsbury Park mosque attack, and already the mainstream press and Britain’s politically correct politicians are busy advising us the attack was an act of “terrorism” not at all different from the wave of Islamist terror attacks currently plaguing London. They are even calling it terrorism this time, contrary to their normal practice:

From the Telegraph: “Finsbury Park mosque: One dead and 10 injured in London terror attack.”

No, there is no question that what happened was a horrific act, and the perpetrator of it must be punished in the harshest possible terms. Try not to release the sentenced creep to the tender mercies of the Libyan government when he claims he’s sick. Can you manage that much, Britain?

But to define what happened as an actual terror attack? That seems to be a rush to judgment.

So what was the terror cause, the grand vision, the paradise he was achieving, the political aim of creating the terror? Whom was he being a martyr for? These are all essential elements of an event being terrorism as opposed to ordinary crime.

And in this rush to call it “terror,” explain to us: how did the authorities not rule out that it was the act of an unhinged, mentally unstable person (they’re certainly holding the perp in a mental health cell for it), or a vigilante counterattack such as are seen on the European continent? How we know that it was not the act of an unbalanced Chechen or Bosnian, engaging in Muslim internecine warfare, which is not unknown? Or something Iran’s Shiite mullahs cooked up to stir up trouble among the Sunnis? Was the punk known to them?

We don’t know – all we know is that they don’t want people like us to know who it is and what his motivation was. All we are supposed to know, at this point, is that know is that it was “terrorism” no matter what the other facts say. And in an era when authorities constantly call real terrorist attacks “lone wolf” attacks, or declare no connection to ISIS before any of the facts is in, it sounds kind of strange that they are all jumping on the bandwagon to declare “terrorism” this time in a bid to please the Muslim lobby. They sure as heck haven’t when the real terror attacks are going on.

It’s not just the leftist press that propounds this line, either, though J.K. Rowling seems to be taking the lead:

James Melville (@JamesMelville) June 19, 2017

Britain’s pols and bureaucrats seem to be lining up for it as well:

Finsbury Park attack: Theresa May condemns ‘sickening’ terror attack

She said the driver of the van acted alone, adding: “Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed.”

She also said that police declared it a terrorist incident within eight minutes, and that it was “an attack on Muslims near their place of worship”.

Mrs May added that “there has been far too much tolerance of extremism over many years”.

“It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible.

The cops are in on the game, too:

Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu thanked members of the public for restraining the suspect as he said the attack had “all the hallmarks of terrorism”.

Does this come across as protesting too much? Or a rush to moral equivalence?

The mentality seems to be: They do it. We do it. Well since, everyone does it, why should anyone get upset about it? Or morally indignant? Or cast a closer eye on Islamism and its hate preachers? Everybody does it. London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s vision of “terrorism being part and parcel” of life in the big city is pretty much achieved.

The whole aim of it is to shut down any thinking or action on the root cause of all of these terror attacks: Islamic radical terrorism and the Petri dish it grows in. Having known many Muslims from London, it’s unfair to paint them all with the same brush – the Muslim people I have known want nothing to do with this plague on society. But the ideas are not absent, either, and they infect not only the minds of unhinged individuals, but also the society they move around in.

That’s not the issue, apparently, with this lone wolf attacker, at least until the facts are known. The authorities don’t want you to have the facts, however. They want you to have the “everybody does it” narrative. That way, you can fall asleep next time an Islamist terror attack takes out another dozen people.

SHOCK VIDEO: CNN Creates #FakeNews in London Following Terror Attacks, Stages Anti-ISIS Muslim Protesters

Posted by addisethiopia on June 6, 2017

A video released a day after the Islamic terror attacks in London show a CNN crew staging a scene with Muslims holding signs saying “ISIS Will Lose”.

The same crowd was used for the following AP post it appears – note the man with green around his neck in both pictures. This is how fake news spreads.

Below are videos of the behind-the-scenes work CNN did to stage the photo-op with Muslims holding up signs that read, ‘ISIS WILL LOSE’.

English newspaper columnist for the Daily Mail, Katie Hopkins chimed in as well saying,

Please watch. You are being deceived.”

Selected Comments:

The media has been doing this for many years. I’m so glad they got caught. Listen to the lies they are telling to cover and justify this. It is downright propaganda.

This is more frightening than the jihadis themselves.

CNN has gone from sick to totally depraved. The aren’t reporting news, they are trying to brainwash viewers. I’ve cut the cord. I will not pay to have this filth pumped into my house.

CNN has been carrying pro-muslim, pro-terrorist propaganda since 1990 at least. And they’ve done it quite consistently.

CNN is a leftist toilet that hasnt been flushed in 20 years..

Can someone explain to me why CNN is the ONLY cable station in EVERY airport(at least every US airport I have experienced).

I can’t stomach even watching CNN anymore! They are a complete and total part of the elite political establishment

Buchanan: Bannon Is ‘Right’ — Media Is the Opposition Party Trying to ‘Bring Down Trump’

Posted by addisethiopia on May 13, 2017

Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” conservative political commentator Pat Buchanan said White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was correct when he said the media was the opposition party. He added that just like they took down President Richard Nixon, they are attempting to “bring down” President Donald Trump.

Buchanan said, “There is a cultural left and a political left and a media if you will, are a conglomerate. It’s not a conspiracy but it is collusion, and they were determined to break and bring down Nixon from the day he was nominated. They were determined, tried to break, and they succeeded. Tried to break and bring down Reagan over Iran-Contra. I was in the White House then. And the same forces, similar forces are trying to break and bring down Trump. And it’s transparent. It’s right in front of us. You can’t watch those briefings and things, watch TV cable TV and the rest of it without seeing there is a real animus. I mean it’s the White House correspondents’ dinner. Steve Bannon was dead right when he said one thing, the media are the opposition party.”

Selected comments:

Liberals Call for Comey to Resign, Trump Fires Comey, Liberals Outraged

Media is most certainly the opposition. They seem to appoint themselves as some form of legit body representing the people when in fact they are no such thing. They ARE in FACT a mistrusted group by a staggering percent of the American people

Six LEFTY Billionaire Corporations 90% newspapers, TV, Radio, Movies, Books, Magazines. Worst is not Bias but CENSORSHIP of Government Atrocities such as Government (CPS) killing over 1,000 children every year! But this is censored and may not be reported in the press.

Media is owned-and-operate by the Rothchild/Jesuit satanist pedophile Cabal. Time for a FREE Press, that is not CONTROLLED by them

The bulk of the national media today is insane. No question about it. The reporting is so maliciously false and obviously unbelievable that insanity is the only possible description. People simply cannot normally be that stupid and idiotic, can they?…;)

When you control information, you control the future. Nothing new here.The State Controlled Liberal Media is losing their control.
“Fake News” is nothing more than a front to combat this losing battle

Buchanan is absolutely correct on this. As long as the media dedicates all of its efforts to trashing Trump, they are the enemy of the people.

He’s 100% right, what is going on is as subtle as a flying mallet. What bothers me is how many people are “dumbed down” and still buy into the fake stream media.

Election Tampering – sure we need to prosecute the big network, big media attempting to play kingmakers and pick the winners for the voters with all kinds of criminal tactics. Neo Marxists and Globalists congregate in a devil’s brew. They make up 90% of the mainstream Global media spectrum. Long live Bannon!
