US officials offered my friend cash to take down Tehran’s power grid

It took a country-wide power outage in Venezuela, whispers of a cyberattack, and smug tweets from US officials to make me suddenly recall the cloak-and-dagger story of a close Iranian-American friend nine years ago. My friend, an engineer — who I will not name for obvious reasons and who I will call ‘Kourosh’ for the purpose of this article — revealed to me in 2010 that he was approached […]

Vanessa Beeley reports on attacks on Syrian towns near Idleb.

Vanessa Beeley writes: Two days ago I was in the Syrian Christian town of Al Skeilbiyyeh that has endured sustained attacks from the various terrorist groups backed by the U.S Coalition. These groups are embedded in the countryside bordering Al Skeilbiyyeh.

The End of Truth as We Know It – Or Knew It

The claim (or admission) by the BBC journalist Riam Dalati that the alleged sarin attack on Douma in April 2018, was staged was received by the Russian embassy in London with glee. “Remarkable that the British MSM chose to ignore it’, whoever it was at the embassy wrote. ‘No breaking news, no articles, nothing.’ Remarkable? Not at all, given the endless track […]

The Fake News Nazi – Corbyn, Williamson And The Anti-Semitism Scandal

One of us had a discussion with an elderly relative: ‘He can’t be allowed to become Prime Minister.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘It’s so awful…’ ‘What is?’ ‘The way he hates the Jews.’ The last comment was spoken with real anguish, the result of continuous exposure to just two main news sources: the Daily Mail and the BBC. What is astonishing is […]

Bashar al Assad: ‘The future of Syria will be determined by the Syrians alone’

The following speech by Bashar al Assad was translated by, and is published with the kind permission of, Ibrahim Muhammad, Syrian Army volunteer and resident of Aleppo.

Real ‘obscene masquerade’: How BBC depicted staged hospital scenes as proof of Douma chemical attack

In an extraordinary turn of events, corporate media appears to have been exposed again as an extension of state foreign policy, by a member of the establishment media cabal, manufacturing consent for regime change in Syria. Riam Dalati is on the BBC production team based in Beirut and describes himself, on his Twitter page, as an “esteemed colleague” of Quentin Sommerville, the […]

Understanding Class and Species: A response from Jason Hribal

In the June 2011 issue of Reason Magazine (Free Minds and Free Markets!) Thaddeus Russell had a lot to say about Jason Hribal’s Fear of the Animal Planet. His article, Ventriloquists for the Powerless, starts off with a bang. “Jason Hribal’s Fear of the Animal Planet: The Hidden History of Animal Resistancewill be ignored, dismissed, and mocked. Published by the tiny and idiosyncratic AK Press and […]

GILETS JAUNES: Civilians in Police Crosshairs as Macron Adopts Totalitarian State-Practices to Suppress Dissent

What I witnessed in Syria was a government, a state, an army doing all in its power to preserve civilian life despite the most destructive hostile infiltration of their culture by external forces, including France. What I witnessed in “civilised” France was the intent to destroy life, any life, to disable, maim and disfigure civilians to protect the Emperor and his corrupt cabal of globalists and capitalist bloodsuckers.

Vanessa Beeley Talks Powerfully on the Gilet Jaunes Movement in France

Vanessa Beeley gave a powerful talk this past weekend in Oslo on the Gilet Jaunes movement, including her own first-hand testimony gathered at the latest march in Paris. Vanessa writes: Speakers were excellent, including my dear sister Eva Karene Bartlett who brought the voices of the “disappeared” Syrians into the room and to Patrick Henningsen who exposed the depth of the Western disinformation bunny […]

Macron Tactics Against Yellow Vests Have Nothing to Do with Public Safety, Everything to Do with Global Politics

“We will not kneel, we will not fear reprisals, we will keep protesting until the end,” said one Gilet Jaune protester to me on Saturday as the police tore into the crowd, scything people to the ground and trampling them underfoot. For more than two months the people who come out into the streets are met with governmental repression. Since […]
