Iraq Tells US ‘Get Out of Our Country!’ in Massive March in Baghdad

Friday 24th January 2020: a huge march in Baghdad took place that sent an uncompromising message to Washington – get the hell out of Iraq! Unsurprisingly, western corporate news outlets either completely ignored or played down the event – the latter amounting to stark misrepresentation and therefore, lying – so we would urge all of our readers to share this […]

The Driver

He knows many celebritiesBut he’s not fazed at allHollywood gods and rock starsAre idols that can fall He’s not intimidatedIn fame’s hallowed hallAnd in my humble opinionHe outshines them allHis clients sit in shadowBut always they are seenBy his eyes in the mirrorOf a top class limousine His brown eyes see everythingThese stars have ever beenFrom labourer or waitressTo an idol of […]

Propaganda and the Defeat of Jeremy Corbyn

If Corbyn can be defeated with a libel it can work just as well on Sanders. “Corporate in both countries behave in similar fashion and make a mockery of any claims of a free press.” One year ago this columnist wrote about the Integrity Initiative, an arm of British intelligence masquerading as an NGO. “The Integrity Initiative is a means of undermining […]

A Tribute To Ben Griffin of Veterans For Peace UK

Ben Griffin – a few words:This is the first Remembrance Sunday in four years that I won’t be at the Cenotaph with Veterans For Peace UK, because I’m in Beirut. But I am thinking about them today, all the extraordinary men I’ve met with their stories of extraordinary courage – not the ‘courage’ of the war propagandists who are in […]

Oliver Kamm Launches Evidence Free Attack on Real Journalist, Academic and Politician.

There is something that the repulsive Oliver Kamm doesn’t seem to grasp: whenever there is instigated another desperate ‘expose’ of Vanessa Beeley, Piers Robinson and the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media (the latest attack focuses on the group’s David Miller and suspended Labour MP Chris Williamson) it simply proves to all of us who support their vital work, […]

What Channel 4 News Refused to Tell You About the Gilet Jaunes: Email

I recently sent an email to several journalists at Channel 4 News regarding their reporting of the Gilet Jaunes movement in France. I chose Channel 4 News for the very same reasons I have written about in detail previously: the programme presents itself as uniquely radical in the mainstream media, a lie that it is vitally important to expose because […]

Drink Coke? Then You Support the Murder of Humans And Animals

Hey! Fancy a Diet Coke? – ‘The lawsuits charged that Coca-Cola bottlers “contracted with. or otherwise directed, paramilitary security forces that utilized extreme violence and murdered, tortured, unlawfully detained or otherwise silenced trade union leaders.” The lawsuits and campaign were developed to force Coca-Cola to once and for all end further bloodshed, compensate victims and provide safe working conditions.’ ‘The […]

Jon Snow and the Murdered Children: His Six-Figure Salary Cannot Buy a Clear Conscience

I have just heard some news which is almost too heartbreaking to put into words. This morning, a little boy, Marcel Shadi Nemeh, died of his wounds in hospital after sustaining them last Sunday in an attack by Nusra Front terrorists on his home in Skeilbiyyeh, Syria. In that same attack, his brother Bashar was killed, along with three other children who were innocently playing in a monastery courtyard and some in their own homes.
