Guardian “Facebook fact-check ” on 9/11 – every bit as poor as you would expect | OffGuardian

The Guardian is no better at telling the truth about the nature of the 9/11 debate than about Syria, Ukraine or indeed anything. It’s recent bid at being both social-media savvy and weirdly Orwellian, “Facebook Fact Check”, has this little snippet up atm:

Article: The Tide is Turning: The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory | OpEdNews

Article: The Tide is Turning: The Official Story Is Now The Conspiracy Theory | OpEdNews

In a few days it will be the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and this November 13 will be the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. These two state crimes against democracy destroyed American democracy, accountable government, and the Constitution's protections of civil liberty.
Years after the damage done by these events the American people no longer believe the official stories. Neither does the government, but the government will never validate the distrust that Americans now share of the oligarchs' government by acknowledging the truth.
The official explanation of the assassination of President Kennedy never made any sense. Videos of the assassination contradicted the official story, as did witnesses, and many credible people challenged the government's story. The CIA was faced with the official explanation becoming unglued and launched its media program stigmatizing doubters as "conspiracy theorists." See here.
The CIA's psych warfare against the public succeeded at the time and for a number of years during which witnesses had mysterious deaths and the trail grew cold. But by the late 1970s there was so much public skepticism of the official story that the US Congress took the risk of being labeled "conspiracy kooks." The House Select Committee on Assassinations reopened the inquiry into JFK's murder. The House Committee concluded that the Warren Commission's investigation was seriously flawed, that there was more than one person firing at President Kennedy and that there was a conspiracy to assassinate JFK.
The corrupt US Department of Justice (sic) contradicted the House Select Committee's report. However, the American people believed the Select Committee and not the corrupt Justice (sic) Department, which never tells the truth about anything.

By 2013, polls showed that most Americans are "conspiracy kooks" who do not believe the official government line on JFK's assassination. So with regard to JFK's assassination, the "conspiracy theorists" are in the majority. The minority are the Americans who cannot escape their brainwashing.

NATO & U.S. spreading 'disinformation on Syria,' says Veterans for Peace

NATO & U.S. spreading 'disinformation on Syria,' says Veterans for Peace

At the recent annual convention of Veterans for Peace, VFP Vice President Gerry Condon said “The US peace movement has been demobilised by disinformation on Syria.”
Disinformation and propaganda on Syria takes three distinct forms. The first is the demonisation of the Syrian leadership. The second is the romanticisation of the opposition. The third form involves attacking anyone questioning the preceding characterisations.
There is a recent article which exemplifies all three of these forms. It is titled “Anti-Imperialism and the Syrian Revolution” by Ashley Smith of the International Socialist Organization (ISO). It’s a remarkable piece of misinformation and faulty analysis.  Because it is clear and well written, it is likely to mislead people who are not well informed on the facts regarding Syria. Hence the importance of critically reviewing it.

Do we need another 9/11 conspiracy theory? | OffGuardian

Do we need another 9/11 conspiracy theory? | OffGuardian



The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were a turning point in world history. We have been told that these attacks were planned and implemented by nineteen Arab Muslim hijackers under the direction of the leaders of al Qaeda. According to the official account, this criminal conspiracy received no help or funding from any government.
Unfortunately, this explanation fails to address a majority of the evidence and leaves most of the critical questions unanswered.[1] In fact, the reports that constitute the official account do so little to explain what happened that it is possible that, to this day, we know very little about who was behind the attacks. That fact is alarming to many people, given that so much war and unprecedented change has been driven by the official account.

Article: Colin Kaepernick's the Real Hero, Not Desperate U.S. Soldiers | OpEdNews

Article: Colin Kaepernick's the Real Hero, Not Desperate U.S. Soldiers | OpEdNews

Can you imagine yourself as a twenty-something -- a black person sitting in the San Diego Chargers football stadium -- with 70,000 angry mostly white people booing you and you alone? Can you imagine how that would feel -- or what it would do to your psyche and to your feeling of being oppressed -- not to mention your performance on the field?
Well, that's the position the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick was in last Thursday night. Every time he touched the ball (virtually each of his plays, since he's the 49ers' quarterback) he was booed mercilessly by a hostile overwhelmingly white crowd. Many of them obviously took the opportunity to scapegoat Kaepernick for their anger towards the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM).
