No Lies Radio FFWN Archive: Vic Sadot with Kevin Barrett

The July 1, 2016 “False Flag Weekly News” Show on “No Lies Radio” YouTube Channel is a Livestream Show in “Hangouts” every Friday morning that is automatically archived with links to all of the stories at NoLiesRadio Home Archive & Story Links


Singer-Songwriter Berkeley Activist Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Professor Kevin J. Barrett, author of “We Are Not Charlie Hebdo”, “Another French False Flag”, and the forthcoming “Orlando False Flag: A Clash of Histories”


Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Kevin J. Barrett. Vic was filling in for Professor Antonius “Tony” J Hall, Editor-in-Chief of the American Herald Tribune, and author of “Earth Into Property”; and Professor James H. Fetzer, Emeritus U-MN in Philosophy, both away on sabbatical studies and projects. Kevin Barrett announced the forthcoming release of a new book to be titled “Orlando False Flag”, and he asked the audience to let him know which of the two covers shown above they prefered. Vic Sadot picked the one on the left by David Dees, whose controversial art Vic has used in many of his music videos. Dees has a new full color book out titled “The Political Art of David Dees”.


More than 33 stories were covered with short pithy commentary. The links to those stories are listed in the description box for this show at No Lies Radio: Istanbul Turkey Terror Attack at Ataturk Airport had many advance warnings fro Turkish intelligence


The co-hosts discussed the necessity of applying the same basic questions to the Orlando Pulse Night Club as required for such crimes  as well as a keen study of anomalies, impossibilities, and interviews of victims. One of the things that happens regularly on False Flag Weekly News is comparison with facts discovered from researching past suspect events. It was noted that many Sandy Hook School alleged victim family members from Newtown, Connecticut went on TV and other media for interviews without showing much emotion. Just as the corporate media and investigators skipped much of the required research, the family members were disturbingly skipping the normal grieving process, and rushing to put up fundraising sites. Was this a way to launder money to them? Also, they pitched a political message attacking the Second Amendment Rights to disarm US citizens who played no role in the alleged attacks. This is happening in a post 9/11 era where the state security apparatus is always given more money and power when they fail, and as the state pushes to militarize local police as part of the “Homeland Security” program. Oddly, a contingent of Sandy Hook families had VIP seats at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013. And the event turned into a Martial Law Drill with 10,000 troops entering people’s homes to search for one 19 year old who was accused of the crime by Jeff Bauman and a guy named Danny. See Russ Baker at Who, What, Why for excellent research on these matters. See Russ Baker’s Don’t Rush to Judgement in Orlando Shooting (22:06) Published on Jun 17, 2016 at WhoWhatWhy Org YouTube. The Fourth Amendment rights enumerated in the US Constitution for American citizens to be secure in their houses and property were violated for thousands of Boston citizens.

One of several news stories about the Orlando event was titled “Boston Crisis Actors Visit Orlando Crisis Actors in the Hospital”. It is legitimate to ask why the alleged Boston “victims” would visit the alleged Orlando alleged “victims” in a manner to draw massive publicity to drive the narrative that the US is under “terrorist” attacks in a more frequent accelerated pace under Obama compared to all Presidents before him. Why are there always drills that seem to go live? You do not want to be near a drill at a mass gathering when simple security is all that is needed. In numerous cases, the alleged “victims” not only skip the grieving process, but they also skip the physical healing process in ways that only be called “miraculous”.

Peekay Boston is an Australian comedic commentator who created an 11:30 video titled “Surely This Is Normal… Or Is It??” at Peekay Boston YouTube Channel. (11:30) Peekay Boston says, “Jeff Bauman a Great American Hero… How can Anyone say that what we see in the Iconic Boston photo of him in a wheelchair is Not Normal?” Bauman not only lost two legs. He also got “hero” status when he identified the two Tsarnaev brothers to the FBI as the “terrorist” bombers! The other “hero” was the Cowboy Hat wearing Carlos Arredondo, who rescued Bauman by breaking all standard medical protocols by putting Bauman in a wheel-chair instead of flat out on a stretcher with legs raised and tourniqueted to reduce blood loss. Why did the many trained doctors and nurses who participate in the annual Boston Marathon “Mass Casualty Drill” not rescue Bauman properly if it was indeed real and not the annual drill done with “unwitting participants” gone live? How does breaking the protocols make you a hero instead of the subject of a lawsuit? Why did the huge number of medical professionals and ambulances available and participating in the annual drill not rescue Bauman? Is that normal? The fact that Jeff Bauman was released from the hospital just 11 days after allegedly losing two legs, and the fact that he was fully recovered 19 days later, smiling and waving the flag at the Boston Bruins hocky game is, well, “NORMAL” in post-9/11 America! In an interview Bauman even explained his miraculous and rapid recovery to his being part of the PR campaign called “Boston Strong”. He answered that his doctors said he was a ‘wolverine’.” Yet Dr. Stan Monteith, a doctor  who has performed amputations and who can also think critically, is quoted in this video as saying none of this is “normal”. Dr. Monteith concludes, “I think that this young man was a ‘crisis actor’.” The alleged mother at the Olando alleged shooting massacre named Christine did a TV spot the night of the shootings and was talking about doing something about the assault weapons instead of being at the hospital or the morgue to find out the fate of her alleged son. A couple days later she is beaming a smile and holding hands with Anderson Cooper in the way we witnessed during the Christmas TV scenes from Sandy Hook and from happily “grieving ” parents and children at other recent events. It’s tabloid soap opera “news”. Meanwhile TPP is secretly being formulated, drones are wiping out children in foreign villages, elections are being “fixed”, proxy armies hooked on amphatamines and wahhabist religion are destroying Israel’s neighbors, and NATO is amassing troops and missiles all around Russia.

Judge Napalotano’s revelation that nobody died until the Swat Team went into the Pulse Night Club after several hours waiting outside contradicts the story told by the witnesses who went on TV right away to tell the story of the scene of carnage they saw. Oddly they showed no signs of trauma or PTSD for having gone through an event they described as “horrific”.


The New York Times used the “false flag” terminology last week, which is rare. But it mocks critical thinkers as “conspiracy theorists” for asking the standard questions that come quite naturally before you even come up with any theory at all. All journalists, detectives, and citizens must always ask of every violent criminal event: who? what why? how? means? motive? opportunity? who benefits? how? how much? who suffers? how? how much? But the goal of psychological operations is to get you to react emotionally and to implant a story before you do the rational processing. It’s called “trauma-based conditioning”… and the manipulation of that cognitive imprinting.

In spite of some flippant comments on Private Manning’s openly stated gender choice, and some uncomfortable Islamic positioning by Kevin Barrett, Vic Sadot stood up for war crimes whistle-blower Private Chelsea Manning by explaining that he respected her for her stand against war crimes, and that he felt strongly enough about it that he had changed the gender of his support song for Manning out of respect for her telling the truth about the war crimes of the Corporate Empire. See Courage To Resist – Free Chelsea Manning at Truth Troubadour YouTube. She is serving a prison sentence of 35 years and the Organization called “Courage To Resist” is working on a legal appeal and on galvanizing popular support for Manning. Vic read a quote from Chelsea Manning’s Warning Statement on the Orlando Pulse Night Club media event that was published in The Guardian (UK) June 13, 2016: “An attack like this is carefully planned and executed to maximize attention by inflaming the passions of a helpless public. Because of this, the response can be more dangerous than the attack. The refrains of “safety and security” have, for many years, been used as a tool by the powerful to justify curtailing civil liberties and emboldening backlash against immigrants, Muslim people and others”.

As part of a story on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France being closed, Vic took the opportunity to mention the SF Solidarity with French Workers action at the SF French Consulate; The use of “terrorism” by President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister Manuel Valls to issue sweeping executive decrees to wipe out workers’ hard won rights and benefits when the austerity measures cannot be passed in the French National Assembly…


Senator John McCain’s 2016 Republican Party primary opponent, former state Senator Dr. Kelli Ward, bluntly accused McCain, President Barrack Obama, and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of creating ISIS, and she blamed McCain for treason by declaring that his support for the Islamic State was getting Americans killed: “Arizona needs a Senator who represents Arizona, not ISIS!” Similarly a New York Times reporter named Mark Mazetti wrote that black market CIA arms for the US-Israel-Saudi-NATO mercenary proxy army in Syria was getting Americans killed.

Kevin Barrett cited an Los Angeles Times article and interpreted that the Settlement announced by Presidents Erdogan of Turkey and Netanyahu of Israel betrays Mavi Marmara Gaza Freedom Flotilla crew members killed in International waters by Israeli commandos. The co-hosts said they were eager to hear what Ken O’Keefe had to say since he was sailing on that ship in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla attempt to break the blockade of the people being collectively punished in the Gaza strip of Occupied Palestine.


Discussion of Washington Post article on Jewish Voice for Peace leader Rebecca Vilkomerson’s call to boycott Israel. Kevin and Vic discussed some of the Anti-Apartheid Occupation groups’ infighting over Gilad Atzmon, Ken O’Keefe, Alison Weir, and others for taking a more strident and independent view than the Jewish-led pro BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) group regarding the seemingly endless occupation of Palestine due to US support. Vic mentioned Alison Weir’s new book “Against Our Better Judgment”;. She is the founder of an organization called “If Americans Knew”. Alison Weir recently had some critical exchanges with JVP. Vic commended JVP and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters for their new film “The Occupation of the American Mind” (Vic wrote 2 different positive but critical reviews in Berkeley Calling & Truth Troubadour Blogs). Click on the photo of Ken O’Keefe to hear his testimony after being beaten by Israeli commandos for disarming two of them who boarded and murdered Turkish citizens on the Mavri Marmara ship partipating in the Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza.


Israeli Intelligence Chief makes public statement that the defeat of ISIS in Syria with Russian help would not be good for Israel; Brexit and what it means to have the British people to vote to leave the super-imposed unaccountable bureaucracy headquartered in Brussels, Belgium known as the EU (European Union).

Discussion moved to the 2016 Election and corporate media attention focused on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. One story by J C Collins in Philosophy of Metrics Blog was about how Rothschild money had saved Trump from bankruptcy during his foray into crime-related gambling casinos, thus making him beholden for his subsequent “success” story. A recent Trump speech was cited for its severe critique of Clinton that is likely to be popularly received. A 2013 Trump Endorsement of Zionist Likud Party President Netanyahu is little known because it was only run in Israel. Watch the 34 second clip on YouTube!


The American Jewish paper Forward ran an article titled “Elizabeth Warren Is the Surprising Israel Hawk on Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential Shortlist”. The author mocked Bernie Sanders supporters saying: “Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator and liberal champion. Warren would be the natural pick to win over supporters of another progressive Democratic icon – Vermont senator Bernie Sanders. The Bernie or Bust crowd, who are still uncomfortable with Clinton, may find Warren’s positions on social and economic issues just as exciting as Sanders’s. But on Israel they disagree. Sanders made a point of challenging the party line by criticizing Israeli policies and demanding a Democratic platform that recognizes Palestinian rights; Warren chose to challenge progressives with a strong pro-Israel stance, much closer to that of the Democratic establishment…”. The pro-war and pro Israel positions of all major party Presidential candidates may not be well-known, particularly in the case of allegedly “progressive” Democrats like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders played to his base by not attending the AIPAC convention, and this drew criticism from Warren.


Third Parties making progress with so much loss of credibility in the two monopoly parties that have a private corporation set up to run Presidential debates with rules that exclude candidates from other major American political parties. Kevin pointed to an article in the Indianapolis Star about Libertarian Presidential candidate and former Governor Gary Johnson polling higher than in past elections.The article said Johnson got an astounding 10% in a recent national poll, and reported: “He called for the legalization of marijuana, term limits for politicians, free markets, fewer regulations on small businesses, a less interventionist military philosophy, reform of Social Security that includes means testing and a raised retirement age, and a replacement of the current tax structure with a flat consumption tax. “If you do away with the corporate tax,” he said, “you will issue pink slips to 80 percent of the lobbyists in Washington.”


Vic Sadot, a Green Party member since 2007, pointed out that Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and VP candidate Honkala were arrested in 2012 when they demanded the right to participate in the 2012 US Presidential Debate at Hoftra University on Long Island, New York. Not only were they arrested, but they were handcuffed to metal chairs for 8 grueling hours. Vic challenged Democratic party members who claim that the Green Party acts as a “spoiler” of their corporate pro-war candidates. He challenged Democrats to help stop this kind of treatment of other popular American Presidential candidates, saying: “All you Democrats gotta deal with that! When you say “Oh you guys are spoilers… No! You guys are spoiling democracy”. Vic Sadot met Jill Stein in person at the Berkeley Post Office on June 3, 2016, and he encouraged her to make “Torture Accountability” a major 2016 election issue and to join the BORDC (Bill of Rights Defense Committee) campaign to demand the release of all 6,500 pages of the 2014 Senate Torture Report. Only a 500 page summary has been released to the public, and it effectively repudiates the 2004 9/11 Commission Report written by Philip Zelikow. Washington’s Blog brilliantly and logically explains why this should be important to everyone, especially the genuine 9/11 Truth & Justice Movement.  Based on Washington’s Blog, Vic explained  that the 500 page summary of the Senate Report on US Torture absolves some key people, such as Abu Zubaydah, who confessed under tortue to all manner of things he did not do, and such “testimony” was made central to the “official conspiracy theory” story about 19 Arabs led by a former CIA asset named Osama bin Laden. And that mythology was used to make foreign and domestic policy for the last 15 years! The US has built magnificent museums to sanctify that story!


In the “Good News” department, the FFWN Co-Hosts noted that a Former Chilean Military Officer during Pinochet Coup Was Found Guilty in Florida for the Murder of legendary Chilean folk singer Victor Jara. The civil law suit was won by California-based Center for Justice & Accountability.

Other stories discussed were the following: A CBS News report on a 91 year old Pennsylvania man who lectured school groups about his experience at the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp. He was exposed to be a Holocaust Hoaxer and apologized for having only been a tourist there after WWII. A Recreational Cannibis Legalization Referendum got sufficient signatures to be on California Nov 2016 election ballot according to the San Francisco Gate. The same measure failed in 2010. Medicinal marijuana is already legalized and providing taxes to local communities. Near the end of the 59 minute show Vic plugged some of his most recent blogs at Berkeley Calling Blog: USS Liberty Vet Don Pageler spoke in Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA on June 25, 2016 about the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel on June 8, 1967; SF Solidarity with French Workers 6-14-16;  A Review of the Documentary Film & the BDS Movement titled “The Occupation of the American Mind”; and Vic Sadot Launches IndieGoGo CD Fundraiser for a CD to be titled “Truth Troubadour” 6-24-16.

Phil Ochs 1973 Interview Audio to Video Project Gets Promoted at Celebrating Phil Ochs

New Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel post gets promoted by webmaster Shannon Hammock at the new web site to celebrate Phil Ochs’ upcoming 75th birthday on Dec 19, 2015.

Celebrating Phil Ochs Blog 8-08-17: New Phil Ochs Interview From 1973 Released To Celebrate His 75th Birthday. Founded by Shannon Hammock with a companion page at Facebook. 

SUMMARY OF CONTENT: This interview took place in Washington, DC on WGTB Radio with Rich Lang, Host of Interface, a WGTB Public Affairs Program; Vic Sadot, Interviewer; Sound Engineer: Skip Pizzi. (Total time interview: 28 min, 54 sec)
Rich Lang announces “Interface” show and introduces Phil Ochs and Vic Sadot. Vic explains that Phil is in DC for a week long engagement at The Cellar Door. He then asks Phil about Watergate and what the Senate and the press are doing. Phil talks about “the Watergate conspiracy”, the possibility of impeachment of President Richard Nixon; Rich asks Phil what about Vice President Spiro Agnew; Nixon in the polls, the significance of Attorney General John Mitchell admitting to breaking the law. Phil expresses surprise that Judge Sirica pursued the Watergate case thus far, talks of the lack of character of Eliot Richardson, quotes John Lennon’s song, Working Class Hero, refers to “crooks” and “creeps” (Committee to Re-Elect the President), mentions FBI Director L. Patrick Gray admitting to having destroyed evidence, refers to the break-in to the office of Pentagon whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg. Phil talks about his appearance on a TV show called “Panorama” the day before and what members of the international press, who were also on that show, were saying about the “Nixon scandal”. Phil comments on the superior nobility and utility of a parliamentary vote of no confidence compared to the impeachment process offered in the US Constitution.

Phil Ochs sings Here’s to the State of Richard Nixon, an update of a song he had previously written and released as Here’s to the State of Mississippi. Only Lyrics in white text on black background during the song segment.


Vic Sadot asks Phil Ochs about his travels in recent years. Phil covers the globe with his commentary on Vietnam and Cambodia, and his report on his most recent travels to Chile, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Bolivia, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Bali, Jakarta, Singapore, Thailand, the Phillipines, “and Philadelphia”. Phil describes the struggle going on in Chile. Salvador Allende, a socialist who nationalized the copper mines, a great national asset of Chile, that had come to be owned by ITT Anaconda. This interview is in May 1973, 4 months before the coup by General Pinochet, when ITT and CIA activities against the Chilean government are being discussed. The coup came on September 11, 1973. Phil cites the assassination of the head of the Chilean Armed Forces (General René Schneider) as a “false flag” operation to make it seem like the newly elected socialist government was attacking the Chilean military. Phil talks about the movie “State of Siege” and the nature of the movement in South America. He describes the tactics of the Tupamaros in Uruguay, and tells the story of being at a university in Uruguay when it was surrounded by the army and shots were exchanged. Phil tells about being tracked and interfered with by Interpol and being taken to a prison. We discuss the role of universities in South America. He says that folk singers make the juke box but it is still mostly romantic subjects rather than political. Phil talks about the CIA financing of a spiritual movement in Chile to drain youth from the revolutionary political movement in Chile. (There may have been more in this interview, but it appears that WGTB’s reel to reel tape ran out here.)


Ukraine: Bloody Destabilization and Privatization Coup of 2014 Orchestrated by the NWO Corporate Captured States

Freedom” for the Ukraine! What does that mean? What is really happening? Here is a collection of news videos that suggest that there has been a bloody destabilization and privatization coup that was orchestrated by the NWO “Corporate Captured States” (CCS) using Neo-Nazis, snipers, media disinfo, a sexy chick viral video, and waves of money from NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations).

The US has Installed a Neo Nazi Government in the Ukraine (Les États-Unis a installé un gouvernement Nazi de Neo en Ukraine) 3-02-14 Center for Research on Globalization, Canada by Michel Chossudovsky.

Closer to home at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute in California, Larry Diamond has produced a new book and a new film on “democracy”. He has something to do with channeling US tax dollars through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). But who gets that money? And why is it OK for the USA (as represented by corporate representatives) to intervene in other people’s countries with NGO funneled money. Is it destabilization and privatization work?

 Watch The Truth About The Ukraine Crisis” (12:16) Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson reports that Larry Diamond of Stanford University and of the US “National Endowment for Democracy” (NED) funded a propaganda video called “From A Whisper To A Roar”. Note well that Paul Joseph Watson is an Islamophobe associated with fake “truther” Alex Jones of Prison Planet and Disinfo Wars. However, I found no other report on this film and the clip of the Ukrainian Girl from the propaganda movie mentioned. So I’m using it for that reason. I am not endorsing these guys. In this case, their facts stand up under scrutiny with other substantiation provided as well.

Book: The Spirit of Democracy by Larry Diamond of Stanford University.

Book: The Spirit of Democracy by Larry Diamond of Stanford University.

The section of the movie on the Ukraine celebrates the right wing NED funded parties in the Ukraine and their leader, Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko, who lost the latest election to Viktor Yanukovych in2010. Recently, Yanukovych was overthrown in Kiev under violent methods of intervention by operatives associated with the US funded NGO’s (non-governmental organizations), some of whom are Neo Nazi. This film praises right wing pro-privatization political operative Viktor Yushcheko. A 2:04 minute segment titled “I Am A Ukrainian” was promoted to go viral on YouTube. 

An attractive blue eyed lady supports the “Right Sector” Nazis and “freedom” advocates on the barricades. How romantic, sweet, and fake! NED and other NGO’s funded the wave of “color” revolutions of which Ukraine’s brand was “orange”. Now the first step of the new Un-Elected government has been to offer to sell the state owned energy company to private corporations “in transparent auctions”. They will also open up negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to secure an indebted Ukraine within the Euro NATO sphere of domination. The attempt to remove Russia from the Crimea is a dangerous attempt to further the encirclement of Russia by NATO. 

Ukraine: Secretive Neo-Nazi Military Organization Involved in Euromaidan Snyper Shootings” – By F. William Engdahl in 21st Century Wire & Global Research, March 03, 2014 – “A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government. But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF (International Monetary Fund – NWO Corporate Empire Bank) with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help…According to veteran US intelligence sources, the snipers came from an ultra-right-wing military organization known as Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO). 

Victoria Nuland’s Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to “Subvert Ukraine”. Who is Victoria Nuland and why does this Dec 13, 2013 “U.S.-Ukraine Foundation” Conference in DC have oil logos so prominantly displayed? Victoria Nuland is the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, and considered a star-leader of the younger generation of “Neo-Cons” now embraced and employed in the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama. After serving as Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson, she is now the U.S. Undersecretary of State for Europe and Eurasia.” How odd to hear a US official talk about her visit to the EuroMaidan protests as people being attacked for singing hymns when the reality is well documented in videos that Neo Nazis nationalists and “militants trained in the Baltics” used a molotov cocktail to create a napalm substance to throw at police officers. A phone call between her and Geoffrey Pyatt was intercepted in which she says “F the EU”. I would interpret that to mean that she understands that they want to participate in the Privatization Plunder of the Ukraine. But that they were not then willing to engage in nuclear brinkmanship with Russia or to support the US attempt to use its Neo Nazi banksters to try to remove the Russian fleet from the Crimea. Nuland said F the EU because they tried to make a deal with the elected government without US participation after it balked at joining the European Union and NATO (spoken by her in code as Ukraine’s “European future”) which would bring that outdated “defensive” organization to the door of Russia. NATO was originally set up to defend Western Europe from a perceived Soviet threat. It was deliberately transformed into an aggressive military tool to bomb far-flung places, such as Afghanistan, Libya, and Yugoslavia.


“INSANE Footage Of Ukraine Riots at Think Outside the Box Channel – Ultra “Right Sector” Nazi-style nationalists financed by US NATO use tactics learned in training camps in the Balkan states. The pay is said to be $25 per day. State Department Under-Secretary Victoria Nuland and the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, said that the US has spent $5 billion so far to subvert the Ukraine. Plenty of new gear and weaponry has come into the violent conflict. Where is that kind of money and gear coming from? A home-made napalm is used on police who seem to be under orders to not shoot back, at least in this scene. You can see the fires break out on their uniforms.

Sharing a post by Haitian Blogger Chantal Laurent, “He’d better move faster on the privatization track, else his handlers will have to start mobilizing “civil society” to push him out, at which point he will have lost the afterglow of a Molotov cocktails democracy and become just another failed leader who needs to go.” Ukraine’s New Government mulling privatization of Energy Sector 3-3-14 – Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said, “I’ll tell you about the idea of privatization of the energy sector at transparent auctions…”

Why would Zionist Jews work with Ukrainian Fascists? Is there any history of anything like that? Unfortunately, this author makes that case.

The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration by William James Martin / July 8th, 2012 Dissident Voice Excerpt: The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state. The two reactionary movements shared the view that German Jews were living in that country as a ‘foreign race’ and that the racial divide was essential to maintain. The Zionists’ use of Nazism involved, among other things, the blocking of avenues of escape to other countries of Europe’s Jews and diverting them to Palestine, even as the death trains began to roll in Europe. The rise of Nazism and Hitler to power was never, or almost never, opposed by the Zionists prior to the establishment of Israel. 

Ukraine: Israeli Special Forces Unit under Neo-Nazi Command Involved in Maidan Riots 

Leaked Telephone Conversation: Ukraine Sniper Killings of “Opposition Protesters” Ordered by “Opposition Leaders”, Blamed on Yanukovych. The leaders of EuroMaidan ordered the shooting of their own supporters and police to inflame the situation. Based on the release of a controversial leaked telephone conversation, we are now in a position to confirm that the Kiev Maidan Independence Square February 20 sniper shootings directed against innocent civilians were ordered by opposition leaders integrated by Neo-Nazi elements. Acknowledged in a leaked telephone conversation between EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet, the Maidan opposition rather than president Yanukovych was behind the sniper killings on February 20. These shootings were directed against both opposition protesters and police. Urmas Paet: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,”Catherine Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,”  According to RT:  The telephone call “took place after Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet visited Kiev on February 25 at the peak of clashes between the pro-EU protesters and security forces in the Ukrainian capital. Paet also recalled his conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.”Urmas Paet “And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed. Catherine Ashton; “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.” 

Breaking: Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and Catherine Ashton discuss Ukraine over the phone by Michael Bergman – Officers of Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to the ousted President Viktor Yanukovich have hacked phones of Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and leaked their conversation to the web. The officials discuss their impressions of what’s happening in the country after the revolution. The gist of it is that Ukrainian people have no trust in any of the leaders of Maidan. However the most striking thing of all is the fact which concerns the use of force during the revolution, particularly the snipers who killed both protesters and officers of the riot police. Mr. Paet reveals astonishing information which confirms the rumours that the snipers were employed by the leaders of Maidan. 


Foreign Intervention in the Ukraine Crisis – “In the latest startling revelation, has published documents implicating the Omidyar Network in the funding of the current Ukrainian protest movement. The Omidyar Network is the NGO of billionaire Ebay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, who recently set up “First Look” as an outlet for (among others) Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras to selectively publish some of the Snowden document archive, 99% of which continues to be withheld from the public… As supposedly “progressive” outlets once again scramble to throw their support behind the billionaire oligarchs and NGOs that have helped to destabilize the country, and as neocons unite with neoliberals in their agenda to carve up Ukraine for western interests, it remains to be seen what genuine alternative outlets will stand up against this blatant interference and stand up for the principle that it is up to the Ukrainian people, and no one else, to decide what happens in their country.”

Song for this blog: Full Spectrum Dominance – Edward Snowden exposed NSA Total Information Surveillance and “Democratic” Party Senator Diane Feinstein’s secret deal to keep that extreme level of police state surveillance a secret until 2038! As Puppet Prez Obama joked about the young men who might be interested in his daughters, “Predator drones: You won’t see it coming!” As my song says, “Beware of those who joke about sending in the drones!”

Homeland Security Surveillance Comes Corporate Outsourced to Oakland

Update regarding who has the contract to enact the Domain Awareness Center (DAC) Surveillance project and how to get more up-to-date information from citizens who are watching these proceedings and oppose violations of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. Full additions for this update are placed at the bottom of the content of the first published article, except for this notice: According to a reliable friend, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), had to be removed from the Domain Awareness Center surveillance project because it turned out that they did not meet the requirements of Measure T. On December 6, 1988, the city council enacted Ordinance No. 11062 C.M.S., the Nuclear Free Zone Act. This act prohibits the city from doing business with any contractors, companies and consulting firms who knowingly engage in nuclear weapons work. My source cites this link:

One of the many disturbing things about the Edward Snowden revelations of the all-sweeping depth and breadth of post 9/11 spying on Americans that caused him to blow the whistle and flee the country was the fact that the massive NSA spying was outsourced to a corporation called Booz Allen Associates. Booz Allen has long been suspected of being a CIA front or having ties that bind it to that and other secretive agencies. 


Another disturbing thing about the Snowden revelations was that US Senator Diane Feinstein D-CA had made a secret deal to keep that level of violation of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution a secret from the public until 2038! Click the Feinstein photo to read about that!

Residents of Oakland oppose mammoth new spy center and Homeland Security money for outsourced corporation SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation)

Residents of Oakland oppose mammoth new spy center and Homeland Security money for outsourced corporation SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation)

Now we hear of something called the “Domain Awareness Center” coming to Oakland. Another corporation calling itself SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation) has come to Oakland awash in Homeland Security money to set up a huge Surveillance Center. This may be a corporation that you have never heard about, and it seems like they would prefer to keep everything about themselves secret while trying to probe everything about every citizen and non-citizen on the planet. For more on SAIC, read chapter 15 “Duane Andrews & SAIC” in Kevin Ryan’s new book, “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”. They benefited enormously after 9/11 and yet they were in a unique position to stop those very terrorist attacks, according to author Kevin Ryan who says that they should be investigated as “suspects”. I will post a review of his book very soon, as I am now on the last chapter. It is a fascinating, well-documented, and disturbing book!

Light Brigades are springing up around the country to do night time protests. In Oakland they gathered at City Hall to oppose the new Domain Awareness Center proposed by the post 9/11 created US federal agency called Homeland Security

An Oakland Wiki Site was created to discuss issues and interesting things about Oakland. One major topic under discussion is the proposed “Domain Awareness Center” being created by Mayor Quan, who says she “cannot say no” to Homeland Security. What does that mean? Local research into the Surveillance Programs that the Feds are pushing on cities like Oakland reveals a vast sum of money being spent on this control system for spying on citizens at a time when social programs are being cut and demonstrations are picking up in regularity. This is all part and parcel of moving the police state forward under cover of a Black, supposedly “liberal” “progressive” puppet face President. “The Domain Awareness Center (DAC) is a surveillance hub, currently being built, which aims to integrate public and private cameras and sensors all over the City of Oakland into one $10.9M mass surveillance system. Needless to say, this issue is highly controversial, and not only here in Oakland: many US cities, and other cities worldwide, are watching closely to see how Oakland’s example will play out. On July 30th, 2013 Oakland’s City Council unanimously approved a $2M grant for Phase 2 of the DAC, which will be funded by grants from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and implemented by the military contractor Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC).

For more on SAIC, read chapter 15 “Duane Andrews & SAIC” in Kevin Ryan‘s new book, “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”. Numerous videos of the DAC Homeland Security program being discussed at Oakland City Council meetings are posted at this site. After that you will need a little radical humor and maybe a song to inspire you to fight back! Fortunately, Berkeley has just what the doctor ordered. We have Twit Wit Radio and I have a song called “Full Spectrum Dominance”.

Twit Wit Radio 2-23-14 KPFA Berkeley, CA – Weekly comedy laughing at the dark side… Seriously clever playfulness, and Berkeley Kid always shines… Part quiz show, part Berkeley free speech protest, part exposé of “deep politics” from the “military coup of 1963” to Democratic party Mayor Quan of Oakland’s cooperation with Federal agencies to create police state, particularly the surveillance of the city in the “domain awareness program”…Excellent musicians rendering popular tunes into thought provoking parodies… “After Disaster” and “Oakland’s on the Rise” are two of my favorites! Always a show that you can listen to more than once to catch what may have gone by too fast the first time. Enjoy!

Full Spectrum Dominance” is a free song at SoundCloud! Please use it now in defense of the 4th Amendment! You are not likely to hear this on your local radio station, even if it calls itself “progressive” or “alternative”. It’s up to you to get this song heard! The term “full spectrum dominance” by the United States was used in papers written by the Project for the New American Century, the neo-con think tank that so many G. W. Bush war profiteer appointees came from. By this terminology they clearly mean to control everything on land, air, sea, media, space, and cyberspace! Hence, surveillance and information analysis and application is a big part of that plan, a plan that the Democratic Party Obama regime has been exposed by Edward Snowden on the implementation of the TIP (“Total Information Project”) style privacy intrusions and 4th Amendment violations.

Defend the 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Full Update 2-25-14 Learning more about the proposed Oakland Domain Awareness Center Surveillance Center: According to a reliable friend, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), had to be removed from the Domain Awareness Center surveillance project because it turned out that they did not meet the requirements of Measure T passed in 1988 to ban city contracts with all who engage in nuclear war industry.

History of Measure T:

In 1988, voters adopted Measure T which declared Oakland a Nuclear Free Zone. The measure passed with 57% of the vote.2 On December 6, 1988, the city council enacted Ordinance No. 11062 C.M.S., the Nuclear Free Zone Act. This act prohibits the city from doing business with any contractors, companies and consulting firms who knowingly engage in nuclear weapons work.

Firms must fill out a Nuclear Free Disclosure form (Form-S). If they don’t fill it out, they’re considered a nuclear weapon maker and restricted from having a contract with Oakland. (see the Disclosure Form for more details.)

Measure T also “requires 45 days notice of any transport of nuclear weapons or hazardous nuclear materials on city streets or waterways as well as a public hearing to determine the safest routes.” Further, the city has to divest from any companies which manufacture nuclear weapons. No nuclear materials can be used within the city limits.1

The federal government sued Oakland over Measure T. (See: United States v. City of Oakland, 958 F.2d 300 (9th Cir. 1992)). The suit invalidated Measure T on the grounds that the Federal Government has constitutional authority over national defense and atomic energy, and Oakland is a major port and has freeways and train lines running through it. In 1992, the Oakland City Council reaffirmed Measure T “to the extend legally possible” in Ordinance 11478. ordinance 11478.pdf

In 2013, the contractor chosen to implement Phase II of the controversial Domain Awareness Center was found to be in violation of Measure T.

The Oakland Privacy Working Group is a grassroots community organization that works on privacy and anti-surveillance efforts here in Oakland. The group grew out of an Occupy Oakland privacy working group, but is now basically its own thing. It ramped up activities after the Domain Awareness Center (DAC) first came to public attention in summer 2013 and is now working primarily on stopping the center from being implemented.

All the Potential Contractors for Oakland’s Controversial Surveillance Center Have Ties to Nuclear Weapons – East Bay Express by Darwin Bond Graham 11-19-13 

“After hearing concerns from privacy advocates, the City Council late last year cut ties with the firm it picked to build the center, Science Applications International Corp. (since renamed Leidos Holdings). Opponents had noted that contracting with the firm violated a city prohibition on doing business with companies that are connected to nuclear weapons makers. They also noted that the firm had paid a $500 million penalty in connection with a scandal-plagued project in New York City. In the city report recommending Schneider Electric Inc., a multinational industrial equipment firm, staffers detailed the firm’s recent litigation history and confirmed that it was not involved in nuclear weapons. Schneider got the recommendation over Motorola Solutions, Inc and G4S Technology LLC.” 

Release the Cleared Prisoners and Close Guantanamo Prison!

Berkeley City Hall “Hunger Strike Solidarity” Rally says: “Release the Cleared Prisoners and Close Guantanamo Prison!” Rita Maran Reiterates Official City Welcome of a Cleared-Detainee to Re-settle in Berkeley.

Cynthia Papermaster of Berkeley No More Guantanamos and Code Pink Golden Gate Chapter 5-21-13 Press Release: “A Gathering to Declare that “Berkeley Says NO to Indefinite Detention and Torture!”

Marking 100 days of an ongoing hunger strike by Guantanamo prisoners, Codepink, Berkeley No More Guantanamos, and others gathered at Old City Hall in Berkeley to hear from City of Berkeley Peace and Justice Commissioner Rita Maran (Sunday, 5-19-13). Rita Maran spoke on behalf of City Council member Linda Maio about the critical life or death human rights situation for Guantanamo prisoners. Rita Maran talked about the standing October 2011 Berkeley City Council Resolution welcoming cleared-for-release detainees to settle in Berkeley using private funds. She addressed the concern that Congress lift the current ban on their entry to the USA. Janet Weil of Code Pink spoke for an end to this ongoing madness.

Cynthia Papermaster of Berkeley No More Guantanamos spoke about the 86 cleared-for-release prisoners still in Guantanamo – up to 7 years after their cases were dismissed by the Bush and Obama administrations. She announced a “Guantanamo Freedom Fund Pledge Drive” for donations to pay expenses such as psychiatric care, housing, food, etc. for the prisoners who will be invited to resettle in Berkeley. The crowd was thrilled to welcome U.S. torture policy architect “John Yoo” (bubble-head actor), a tenured professor at UC Law School and darling of the Wall Street Journal, the Tea Party, Young Republicans, American Enterprise Institute, and the Federalist Society. Mr. Yoo, played to the hilt by Toby Blome, handed Ms. Papermaster a giant “check” pledging $250,000 to help cleared-for-release Gitmo prisoners with living expenses in Berkeley. Papermaster told Yoo she appreciated the donation, but that she still hoped he would be prosecuted for his unethical, illegal and immoral role in torture, destruction of civil rights, and pre-emptive war.

Vic Sadot, Chair of the Berkeley Fellowship Social Justice Committee spoke about our need to stand here to express the conscience of Berkeley and US citizens. He led the crowd in singing “Tell John Yoo That Torture Is A Crime”, a song recorded with the Code Pink Golden Gate Chorus and released on 9/11/11 on a CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which is available at CD Baby and for which a video was made using photos from David Swanson’s WarIsACrime site. 

All attendees were invited to write postcards to the illegally held Guantanamo “detainees” (prisoners), to President Obama to ask him to use his authority to free the cleared-for-release prisoners, and to write to John Yoo to mock-thank him for his generous pledge to help the men that he conspired to torture by writing bogus legal briefs to justify the use of torture, and to violate the Geneva Conventions, which are by treaty also the law of the United States.

This Guantanamo Hunger Strike Solidarity Action and the issue of closing Guantanamo peranently was the lead story on the Berkeley-based KPFA evening news that day. That segment begins at 2:32 and ends at 8:00 on this archived recording):

BERKELEY CALLING! “Inviting Gitmo Detainees to Berkeley”

Rita Maran explained the Berkeley Peace & Justice Commission proposal to the City of Berkeley, and why it was passed. These “indefinite detainees” have been tortured but were never charged with a crime. Many have been cleared by the Bush and Obama administrations. But the advocates of a “war on terror” need some real life people to populate that policy. They apparently prefer to conduct their “war” outside of US Constitutional law, due process, and habeas corpus rights established by Magna Carta. The prisoners known in the corporate media as “detainees” have been kept from their families for 11 years and counting. This is not American justice! Guantanamo torture testimony was used in the 9/11 Commission report to support the “official conspiracy theory” that 19 Muslim men, mostly from Saudi Arabia, were led in the successful attacks of 9/11/01 by Osama bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan. At this time (5-20-13) over 100 of them have gone past 100 days in a hunger strike as an attempt to call their plight to the attention of people of conscience all over the world. On Sunday, May 19 a small group gathered to call for the release of all the cleared detainees and once again Dr. Rita Maran was there to speak out. Posted on May 16, 2013.

100 Days of Guantanamo Hunger Strike: Special Coverage- RT TV (15:45)

May 16, 2013 marks a dark milestone in one of the world’s most horrific prisons – The 100th day of a mass hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay. Out of 166 inmates at this time 130 are on hunger strike, according to prisoners, while the military only admits to 102. At least a third of them are being force fed through tubes, a procedure recognized by various medical organizations as painful enough to constitute another form of torture. And by all accounts – there’s no end in sight to the strike. RT discusses the stand-off with former Guantanamo detainee Moazzam Begg in Birmingham UK, who is now the Director of the “Cage Prisoners Activist Group”, Attorney Pardiss Kebriaei of the Center for Constitutional Rights who serves as the legal representative of 8 current Guantanamo “detainees”, military attorney Lt. Col. Barry Wingard, Judge Advocate General of the US Air Force, speaks out quite forcefully on behalf of his client. Wingard thanks RT for their consistent coverage of the prisoners’ plight. He sharply denounces American media “who are more than willing to forget about the whole situation”. He denounces CNN saying, “They’re doing a real fine job this week not interviewing a single prisoner, and regurgitating exactly what the camp officials want you to hear… There’s a two-part strategy, one is the public relations strategy and the behind the scenes crackdown that they are trying to hide…The President has the authority to sign a waver to get these men out of here. He can sign a waver… Indefinite detention is both illegal and immoral.”

Zero Dark Thirty CIA Director's Cut


The Political Film Blog: Declassified Memo Shows ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Filmmakers Played Role of Willing Propagandists for CIA – Newly Declassified Memo Shows CIA Shaped Zero Dark Thirty’s Narrative – Torture is:
1. Felony crime under US Law, 20 year penalty and death penalty if victim dies.
2. International War Crime.
3. A conspiracy to torture when multiple parties engage in it.
4. Conspiracy extends to those covering up these felonies and war crimes … do the math!

“CIA requested Zero Dark Thirty rewrites, memo reveals – Document shows agency requested removal of interrogation scene with dog, and shots of operatives partying with AK47.” Ben Childs, The Guardian, 5-7-13. The UK Guardian exposes CIA role in Zero Dark Thirty, a fiction movie that justifies the use of torture.

A substantial number of people in Gitmo were basically sold to the CIA/ US in return for the reward offered for ‘terrorists’: basically, someone from a hostile family in Afghanistan would kidnap a shepherd and hand him in as a suspect. Once you’re in the system you’re a terrorist because you wouldn’t be in the system otherwise. It’s intelligence gathering turned on its head, and hill-clans in Afghan made a tidy profit out of settling personal scores. This is fact, not supposition.” Comment by reader Sam Russel after watching a UK Documentary on subject. Torture: The Guantanamo Guide Book (49:28)

CIA whistleblower imprisoned despite prosecutor’s promise RT 5-30-13

May 30, 2013. John Kiriakou: “I never tortured anybody, but I’m heading to prison while the torturers and the lawyers who papered over it and the people who deceived it and the men who destroyed the proof of it–the tapes– will never face justice.”…Then-CIA director David Petraeus hailed the conviction, “This case yielded the first IIPA (Intelligence Identities Protection Act) successful prosecution in 27 years, and it marks an important victory for our Agency, for our Intelligence Community, and for our country,” Petraeus said. “Oaths do matter, and there are indeed consequences for those who believe they are above the laws.” “Tell the Whole World that Torture is a Crime” by releasing John Kiriakou and by prosecuting those who approved the “enhanced interrogation techniques” (Rumsfeld, Rice, Cheney), “indefinite detention” (imprisonment for more than 11 years under these cruel “techniques” without charges), and by prosecuting those who prosecuted this man instead of the real criminals.
