The US Government has stockpiled 2-billion rounds of extra-lethal hollow-point ammunition...prohibited for use in warfare by the Geneva Convention. That's at least 6 rounds for every man, woman and child in the US. At the same time, ammunition for civilians has been severely restricted, if not stopped altogether. Coincidence? How does a police state begin? And now Secretary of State John Kerry wants to sign the UN weapons ban treaty. What does this say about their "alleged" terrorist threat? If they wanted to protect the people, why would they take our semi-automatic weapons and leave us defenseless against overwhelming force?

Biotech’s Next Big Disaster: Seeds That Emit Multiple Pesticides
Jon Rappoprt's Blog, by Jon Rappoport - 061313

Tom Laskawy (twitter), writing at Grist, points out how the next generation of GMOs is following in the track of present disasters:

“…the growing pest and weed problems for GMOs have caused farmers to turn to seeds that are coated with a different pesticide—a neonicotinoid. If that name rings a bell, it’s because these pesticides… have been implicated in the increasing epidemic of bee deaths."

“And that’s aside from the evidence that biotech’s ‘next big thing’ —seeds that emit multiple pesticides—may be doomed to fail. An international team of researchers, including USDA and biotech scientists, found what they termed ‘cross-resistance’ to these pesticides in [predatory] bugs exposed to the next-generation GMO seeds. Evidence, in other words, that GMO seeds are hitting a bug-covered wall.”

The seeds don’t knock out the plant pests.

Yet the venerable journal Nature recently urged patience, because just over the next hill, the biotech giants will surely succeed in bringing us better GMO crops. ... [Read more]

The Information Nation Celebrates Two Years!
Ken Hildebrand Is Senior Member In Many Ways
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff 052613

June 26th marks a special date for Orion Talk Radio. It is the two year anniversary of The Information Nation with Ken Hildebrand. As the oldest host on the network, Ken also enjoys the longest running show on OTR, giving him true seniority with the network. You can hear Ken every Sunday night from 9-11pm (ET), exclusively on Orion.

 

US Gov Restricts OTR On WA Military Base
Website And Radio Network Have Been Blocked
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff 062613

Orion Talk Radio has recently learned that it has been officially blocked by the US government at joint base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Washington. Personnel at this combined Army-Air Force base are unable to go the the Orion Talk Radio website, nor listen to the broadcasts.

It is very unfortunate that our men and women who serve with integrity and honor cannot learn firsthand that their own government does not operate under the same code of conduct. It is readily apparent that the US government fears letting its military personnel hear the real truth that is not reported by the corporate mainstream media.

How sad and pathetic that they fear the truth so much that they have to resort to censorship. You have to wonder how extensive this ban is across US military installations, and lastly, who directed this order in the first place? Was it from DOD or DHS, or did the censorship order come from higher up? Inquiring minds would like to know.

 

OTR Remakes 'What The World Needs Now'
1971 Classic Is Updated To Tell Post 9/11 Tale
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff 061913

The Orion programming department is at it again with another remake, this time going back to the studio with the popular 1971 Viet Nam era Tom Clay hit, 'What The World Needs Now,' a social commentary originally set to the 1965 tune by Jackie DeShannon.

Produced at Studio B in Minneapolis by Mad As Hell host Tim Watts, the remake has been updated to take a look at the post 9/11 world, as told by the infamous figures who helped shape the decade.

The updated mix is unique from the original in that it is a custom composite of the DeShannon piece, plus the later production by the song's original author, Burt Bacharach, who collaborated with Hal David to write the song.

The idea was to create a piece that would serve as a factual reminder of just how this bogus "War On Terror" and the US police state really began. The sweet irony is that we were able to tell a story and deliver a message using the actual words from some of those who were most heavily involved in the nefarious events of the last decade.

Those featured in the piece include:

  • George W. Bush

  • Dick Cheney

  • Larry Silverstein

  • Rudy Giuliani

  • Norman Mineta

  • Barack Obama

  • Joe Biden

  • Bill Clinton

  • Hillary Clinton

We hope you enjoy the mix.

Orion Resurrects Kennedy Speech
Message Was Worth Killing For, We Need To Hear It!
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff 061913

The Orion Talk Radio programming department has released a spoken word piece that was produced in 2012 using President John F. Kennedy's "Secret Societies" speech. The production was never officially released to the public, until now.

As part of a new martyr series, the idea is to feature the words of those individuals who the powers that be have killed in an attempt to silence their message. The idea is to present these important messages once again to the public. If they were worth killing someone for, then what better way to honor those fallen heroes by resurrecting their powerful messages and putting them back into the forefront of public consciousness.

"If someone hated those messages bad enough to silence the messenger, then we need to hear those messages again," said series producer Tim Watts. "What were those brave people trying to tell us that 'the powers that be' don't want you to hear?"

The plan is to feature those people that they tried to silence, and to let their important messages be heard once again. ... [Read more here]

New OTR ad: Who do you really fear in this dark alley?

OTR Media Players Back Up And Running
Network Suffers Through Costly Player Restriction
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

After months of hosting issues from GoDaddy, and a wild week that saw our server moved three times, it appears that the media player issue has been corrected. Likewise, the OTR Archives page has also been fixed. Many thanks to Shad from Toando.com for his invaluable assistance.

The folks at GoDaddy claimed that the OTR website script usage was very high, so they took it upon themselves to move our website to a new server, without notifying us, twice! They did this on June 13th, and again on June 15th, moving us to a new server, without consulting with us first. This is the second issue with GoDaddy that has affected the Orion Talk Radio network.

As a result of those scripting issues with GoDaddy, the OTR custom media players had been restricted from running. Our Archives were also affected as GoDaddy claimed that the page usage was taxing their system.

Listeners will recall that in March we had huge archive issues that GoDaddy could not resolve after fifteen phone calls and nearly 24 hours of tech chat. Our savvy OTR tech from Toando.com, Shad, was able to do what the GoDaddy techs could not do, find the answer in their own tech database. <sigh> You just can't make this stuff up.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and thanks very much for listening to Orion Talk Radio, News & Views Beyond The Mainstream Media.

Orion Talk Radio Moves Onward
Network Endures Attacks After Momentous Year
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

It's been an up and down year for Orion Talk Radio. The Shoutcast rankings have seen the station soar, seemingly overnight, from 400,000 listeners to 1.5 million listeners in just a 90 day period of time during late summer of 2012. More times than not, OTR has had more listeners than both of its rivals combined, however, with the sudden rise in popularity has also come a rise in nefarious attention. 

Since vaulting forward, the station has undergone many cyber attacks on its website and its audio players. A look down this column will reveal a litany of attacks, with many pointing their finger at possible government influence. The station has recovered after the latest cyber attack locked  the network down on Saturday, April 20th.

During this tribulation, the station has weathered the loss of hosts that it sought to keep, but fortunately enough, our programming team is ever watchful for talent. The station has added three great new shows with America Talks, News Stalker, and Live Truth, with a new night show to be announced soon.

Orion has been extremely fortunate to find many hosts with commercial broadcast experience. New hosts David Zublick, Stephen Williams, Bob Green, Erich Headricks, and Brian Lange bring a long history of radio background with them, as well as the same passion and dedication for truth that Orion has come to be known and respected for.

The station endures because of a collective spirit, one that doesn't just emanate from those who make up its staff and deliver the broadcasts, but from those of you who listen. We are very much aware of this at Orion Talk Radio and we value our listeners for their patriotism. We share their passion for liberty and their determination to defend our country and the Constitution that protects it. 

There are many in this country who have woken up and they are not happy with what they have discovered. They are angry at the corporate mainstream media for lying to them and withholding the truth. Orion Talk Radio has become a daily part of many people's lives and we accept that trust with great respect and the utmost appreciation for their support.

This is an undeniably tumultuous moment in our history. Orion Talk Radio is here to further the movement for truth in the US and the world. We can do nothing without you, for it is YOU who they fear. It is an informed populace that they scares them the most. This is why Orion has been targeted, but with your help we will take this country back.

Throughout the adversity, we persevere and move forward. Watch this space for more exciting Orion line-up additions to come and future programming announcements.

 

Orion Talk Radio Sabotaged On April 20th
Network Hacked / Live Broadcasting Was Shut Down
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

Orion Talk Radio was the recipient of a recent computer hack that shut the network down to all live programming. As of Saturday afternoon, the network was unable to deliver live broadcasting. One thing is certain to network technicians, the attack was deliberate and with malicious intent. Orion has an IP trail with some leads to consider. Please bear with us as we work to correct this issue.

 

Orion Archive Problem Solved
GoDaddy Fails To Find Answer, On Their Own Site!
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

The Orion Talk Radio Archives page has had a most inconvenient interruption since Friday, March 15th at around 6pm ET. At that time, neither the Buffalo home office, or the Minneapolis web end could upload via FTP to GoDaddy. This stopped our automatic archive system from posting the normal updates after each show.

During the course of at least 15 calls, lasting well over 20 hours, Orion was given every excuse under the sun, but not one of them explained the issue, nor fixed it. In the end, GoDaddy just gave up. They said they just couldn't figure it out and that we were free to leave if we wanted.

Fortunately, an intrepid technician and good friend of this network, Shad from Toando.com was able to find the answer to the problem... right on the GoDaddy tech forum webpage! The answer was right in their tech files all along.

Thanks to Shad, our FTP clients have been readjusted to resume uploading of the archives once again. The older archives missing since March will be uploaded by hand.

Also joining the line-up is an exciting new night show called News Stalker. The program is a first for Orion because it features a trio of hosts with many years of broadcast experience. Hosts Stephen Williams, Bob Green, and Erich Headricks will take on government and media corruption, among other hot daily and weekly topics affecting the US and the world. The show will debut on Monday night, April 8th at 10pm ET.

Mad As Hell Hits The Air On Saturday Nights
New Show From Tim Watts Debuts On Orion
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

Orion Talk Radio is pleased to welcome another new show to its line-up with Mad As Hell, hosted by Tim Watts. A 30 year veteran of commercial radio, Watts left the corporate broadcast world to fight the good fight by teaming up with Orion Talk Radio.

Inspired by Howard Beale from the 1976 movie Network, Tim is Mad As Hell about the state of our world. As 60's activist Mario Savio put it, "You've got to put your bodies upon the gears, upon the wheels, upon the levers, and you've got to make the machine stop! You've got to let the people who own it and run it know, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!

Orion Attacks Continue With Regional D.O.S.
Denial Of Service For Audio Players And Archives
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

The attacks have continued against Orion Talk Radio. We thank those listeners who have notified us of the issues that they are having with both our audio players and our archives. It is clear that we have incurred the wrath of someone who deems us a threat to their operations.

We have a brilliant programmer from Texas who has cleverly been able to stave off these attacks, to a point, however, the attacks have now become regionalized and are difficult for us to pinpoint and diagnose. We need your help. Please email us if you are having problems. Tell us the web browser that you use, as well as the preferred audio player that you use to listen to our stream.

Contact us at: OrionTalkRadio@gmail.com

Also, if you have computer tech programming skills, we desperately need your help on our team. Unfortunately we are a volunteer organization. All of our hosts donate their time for this noble cause that we endeavor upon. If you are such a person, we sincerely hope to hear from you. We occasionally get ahead with the small advertising and Chip-In revenues that we receive, with those funds being directed back into the operation of the network. We do try to help our tech support when we are able to do so.

If you are able to help us with a Chip-In donation to aid us in this cause, we would sincerely appreciate any and all contributions. You can find the Chip-In banner on the left side of this page.

For those who are experiencing issues in listening to the Orion audio stream, please try some of the other listening links on the left side of this web page.

If the Orion website should be taken down for any reason, we will be posting updates on the following host sites:

 

Canada Live NewsFocus
Conscious Resistance Sound of Freedom
Free Thinking Voice The Information Nation
Morning Brew The American Truth Network
News Stalker  

Please bookmark these links now. If all of these sites are down, then you know that shit is hitting the proverbial fan.

Apparently what we are talking about is having an effect, enough so that someone is compelled to continually refine and strategize their attack methods. Thank you again for helping us to identify the nature and scope of these continued attacks. We thank you for your help, support, and your patience. Most of all we thank you for listening to Orion Talk Radio and for helping to spread the truth.

Orion Sets Fixed Rebroad Schedule
Replay Roulette Replaced With A Set Schedule
OrionTalkRadio.com, Staff

In the interest of giving listeners a regulated listening schedule, Orion Talk Radio has replaced the random re-broadcasts of it shows with fixed times. This now gives the audience a set programming schedule to plan their listening habits around, allowing for a regimented listening pattern that people can count on and look forward to. This is most helpful for overnight listening in the US, as well as a structured schedule for our European and overseas listeners.

To find out when your favorite shows air again, see the Schedule page on this website by going to the menu bar. As always, everything we do is for the benefit of our listening audience. Thanks much for tuning us in.

The Sound of Freedom Moves To New Time
To ease his west coast schedule, Ryan Brooks will be moving his highly popular Sound of Freedom broadcast to a new time, 12-2am ET, beginning Monday (1/21). This will give Orion Talk Radio a decided boost in late night ratings, but also a stronger presence with west coast listeners at 9pm PT.

While we will miss Ryan in his earlier time slot, we are thrilled to still have him as a part of the Orion Talk Radio family. We wish Ryan well in his move to midnight ET and encourage his loyal listeners to stay tuned. The Sound of Freedom can also be found on the Orion archives page for those who can't keep the later hours, but still want to hear Brooksie bash the corrupt powers that be. We thank everyone for tuning him in.

Orion Talk Radio Defends 1st Amendment
Free Speech
Is Not A Right To Hate Speech
OrionTalkRadio.com, by Tim Watts - 121112

Orion Talk Radio would like to clarify a most unfortunate situation in regards to our stance on "hate speech." Some unsettling and unfair views were expressed by a few hosts towards people of Jewish ancestry, singling them out as the sole cause of evil in this world. We find those views to be deplorable and factually unfounded.

So, let us make our position perfectly clear for all to understand... we defend all people's rights. We do not believe that you can lump all people of a nationality or religion together and call them bad. That is simply an asinine and ignorant position to hold. It is ridiculous to believe that an entire religion or nationality of people are inherently bad or evil. It just isn't so. Period.

One of the misperceptions of the 1st amendment is that we can say whatever we want, no matter how incendiary the statement might be. Yes, we all have the right to free speech in the US, but that right comes with the use of common sense.

Case in point... you are not allowed to yell "fire" in a crowded movie theater. Sure, you have the right to do so, but does that make it right to do? Why not go ahead and try this one out for yourself and see where it gets you?

There are also laws regarding libel and slander to be considered, so, to be sure, our hallowed 1st amendment rights do come with a bit of common sense.

All too often, those who wish to engage in such reckless talk will always attempt to hide their offensive speech behind the Constitutional right to free speech. In the case of "Jew bashing," it is all to easy to prove that those who choose this path of discourse are the ones who are guilty of denying people's 1st amendment rights. They choose to forget that the 1st amendment defends more than just free speech.

As part of the US Constitutional Bill of Rights, the 1st amendment guarantees (and we quote here)...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It is notable that free speech is not mentioned first. It is freedom of religion. Our forefathers valued that right very much, so much so that it is the very first thing outlined by the Bill of Rights!

It is also patently clear that those who choose to violate this sacred rule are undeniably making a mockery of the 1st amendment, disregarding one portion to support another. They selectively choose to disregard one of its most hallowed precepts, and then feebly try to support it with the second precept, freedom of speech.

You can't have it both ways folks. It's pretty obvious to anyone with half a brain to reason with. Unfortunately, hate has no reason.

With the above in mind, Orion Talk Radio has adopted a policy manual for its hosts, forbidding the use of hate speech towards people of specific religious affiliations, color, nationality, or any form of racial ethnicity.

To be clear, we defend the 1st amendment, in its entirety.

We do not believe that all Jewish people are bad. We defend all people's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. At OTR, we vigilantly defend the dream of our forefathers, that all men are created equal.

Unfortunately, three hosts were incensed with our public apology that is printed below. They immediately took to the Orion airwaves with a maniacal outrage, incorrectly declaring that their 1st amendment rights were being violated. The absurdity is mind boggling. The hypocrisy is glaring.

Hopefully, with the clarity of the 1st amendment printed above, you can see what an outrageous oxymoron this truly is. One can only make such a false claim out of ignorance, blind stupidity, or just wanton disregard for our Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

These three hosts then used Orion's own station airwaves to attack the network and its owner. To be factual, these rogue hosts were allowed the right to free speech as they viciously and maliciously verbally assaulted Orion Talk Radio. The OTR programming team sat by and listened in shock and horror as these hosts each took their turn in unfairly slandering the network and its owner. No one cut them off. No one deprived them of their right to speak.

To be perfectly clear, no one fired them. They each quit on their own.

Strangely enough, one other talk radio outlet has chosen to blatantly disregard the 1st amendment, allowing its hosts to denigrate people of Jewish descent. They have now also given a platform to some of the disgruntled ex-OTR hosts, to go on their radio airwaves with slanderous statements that are factually incorrect, if not outright lies. To them we say, you might want to lawyer up. Recorded audio tape is indeed factual evidence in a slander hearing.

The ownership and programming team of Orion is deeply saddened by the course that these three former hosts have taken, but we want it to be publicly known that we do not condone religious hate speech, hidden behind free speech. It is not tolerated at this network.

Adolph Hitler was said to be raised by Catholic parents. Does this mean that all Catholics are bad as well? The Vatican itself may have its issues, but we would never categorize all Catholics as bad. We do the same for those of Jewish faith.

To be fair, the Zionist agenda is a problem in the world, but all Jews are not Zionist. The Zionist agenda is steeped in its own greed and a thirst for power and geopolitical conquest. It is this ideology that we battle. Not the Jews.

When it comes to religion, we like to boil it down to one thing... WWJD, or what would Jesus do? How about, "Treat others as you wish to be treated," or perhaps the even simpler request, "Love thy neighbor."

Again, we defend the 1st amendment, in its entirety. We defend all people's rights, and that includes yours.

We sincerely hope that this clarifies our position.

 

Orion Talk Radio Says No To Hate Speech
OrionTalkRadio.com, Programming Dept.

Orion Talk Radio extends its remorse over unexpected and regretful incidents of anti-Semitic hate speech that went out over our station air waves and wrongly conveyed that all people of Jewish ancestry and religion are evil or bad. To be fair, commenting about Zionist ideology and the Israeli government are one thing, but to claim that all Jews are bad is an extreme far right viewpoint that has no place in the media, and most especially not on Orion Talk Radio.

We fully support the right to free speech, but we also understand that free speech does not sanction or support the right to hate speech, that which denigrates an entire ethnic culture, or singles out those of a specific color or religious affiliation. A precious, hallowed right such as the first amendment was never intended to be used for hate speech, nor to target specific groups by ethnicity or color.

Let us be public and perfectly clear on this divisive issue: Orion Talk Radio does not condone ideology such as this and has already taken internal steps to remedy the issue, implementing policy within to ensure that such an incident doesn't happen again, by setting procedures in place that allow for immediate dismissal upon violation of said policy.

As a sign of our commitment and sensitivity to this issue, a zero tolerance policy has been enacted. At Orion Talk Radio, we refuse to follow the dark path of divisive hateful speech. We do not believe that any one race, religion or ethnicity is purely evil. All people deserve their dignity and rights. Our mission is to unite people, not divide them.

At Orion Talk Radio we don't take our media responsibility lightly, and we understand that we are all in this fight for freedom and liberty, together. So with that said, we thank you for allowing us into your daily listening routine, and for helping spread the truth about real issues that affect all of us in this allied fight that we face together, against the forces of the new world order. -Orion Talk Radio Programming.

PS: No hosts were fired over this. Three left on their own.

We saw the signs early on during the summer of 2011, when our audience more than quadrupled in just six months. Apparently that very hot trend has continued to grown exponentially larger. 

A year later, Orion Talk Radio has grown to 1.2 million tune-ins in over 30 days, according to the summer 2012 Shoutcast stream rankings for the period ending Aug 2nd. This rapid growth is extremely heartening and proves conclusively that people are indeed seeking alternative news sources.

We thank you for making the Orion Talk Radio Network one of the fastest growing News/Talk outlets in the country, if not the world. Thank you Orion listeners!

 

If you want real change, you have to work for it by not being silent. Spread the truth whenever and as often as you can. Remember Rev. Niemoller. Speak up now, while you can!

Obama Allows Great Lakes Water To Be Sold To China As Half The U.S. Faces Extreme Water Crisis
BlackListedNews.com, by Michael Snyder - 121713

What in the world is Barack Obama thinking? At a time when the United States is facing the greatest water crisis that it has ever known, Obama is allowing water from the Great Lakes to be drained, bottled and shipped to China and other countries around the globe.

Right now, the Great Lakes hold approximately 21 percent of the total supply of fresh water in the entire world. Considering the fact that global water supplies are becoming extremely tight, that is an invaluable resource. One recent UN report projected that two-thirds of the people in the world will be dealing with “water stress” and 1.8 billion people will be facing “absolute water scarcity” by the year 2025. So why are we allowing foreign corporations such as Nestle to make millions upon millions of dollars pumping water out of the Great Lakes and selling it overseas? Considering the massive worldwide water crisis that we know is coming in the years ahead, shouldn’t we be doing everything that we can to protect this precious natural resource?  [Read more]

We are thankful to Ms. Durgahee for her honest and courageous reporting on this serious topic, but few realize that it was former grassroots airline employee whistleblowers and their organizations in the United Kingdom and elsewhere who must also receive our thanks for their tenacity and courage for exposure on behalf of the millions who travel by commercial air each day. ...

NSA Rejecting Every FOIA Request Made by U.S. Citizens

Clayton Seymour, a 36-year-old IT specialist from Hilliard, Ohio, recently sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the NSA, curious as to whether any data about him was being collected.

What he received in response made his blood boil.

"I am a generally law abiding citizen with nothing I can think of that would require monitoring," Seymour told me, "but I wanted to know if I was having data collected about me and if so, what."

So Seymour sent in an FOIA request. Weeks later, a letter from the NSA arrived explaining that he was not entitled to any information. "When I got the declined letter, I was furious," he told me. "I feel betrayed." ... [Read more]

About a year after Facebook reportedly joined PRISM, Max Kelly, the social network's chief security officer left for a job at the National Security Agency, either a curious career move or one that makes complete sense. The Chief Security Officer at a tech company is primarily concerned with keeping its information inside the company. Now working for an agency that tries to gather as much information as it can, Kelly's new job is sort of a complete reversal.

Facebook, among other tech companies, has distanced itself from the government, claiming it only cooperates when it is legally required to. But, "current and former industry officials say the companies sometimes secretly put together teams of in-house experts to find ways to cooperate more completely with the NSA and to make their customers' information more accessible to the agency," report the New York Times's James Risen and Nick Wingfield. ...

NSA’s Canadian Counterpart Runs Massive Domestic Spying Program
WSWS, By Keith Jones - 15 June 2013

On the basis of secret government directives, Canada’s national security apparatus is conducting mass surveillance of Canadians parallel to, if not directly patterned after, the domestic spying operations of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).

Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), the NSA’s Canadian counterpart and longstanding partner, has been scrutinizing the metadata of Canadians’ electronic communications since at least 2005.

Moreover, the NSA routinely provides Canada’s security agencies with intelligence on Canadians and CSEC reciprocates by providing U.S. intelligence officials with information about people living in the U.S. This arrangement allows both agencies to circumvent legal bans on warrantless surveillance of their own citizenry’s communications.

It was “common” for NSA “to pass on information about Canadians,” Wayne Easter, Canada’s Solicitor-General in 2002-3, told the Toronto Star this week. As Solicitor-General, Easter was responsible for overseeing the operations of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The extent and scope of CSEC’s spying and who is being targeted and why are all zealously guarded state secrets. The CSEC functions under secret directives issued by the Minister of Defence—directives whose very existence is unknown to parliamentarians, let alone the public at large.

The Conservative government has responded to this week’s slight and very partial lifting of the veil on CSEC activities with a campaign of disinformation, dissembling and lies. This campaign has been facilitated by the opposition parties, especially the ostensibly leftwing New Democratic Party, and the corporate media; they have made no more than tepid calls for greater transparency about the CSCE’s spying.  ...

Techno Murder: The New Weapon For Assassination
Reporter Hastings Death Is Another Instance To Ponder
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts 080113

The bizarre death of reporter Michael Hastings has many in the alternative media pointing fingers, with accusations of murder being directed by some towards the US intelligence community. Interestingly enough, some in the mainstream media have taken note as well, and perhaps that was meant to be - to send a signal to the press, that if anyone should try to expose them, this is what they can expect.

There are many ways to control the media. It's really very simple to understand. Either you buy it up, or you instill fear into those you can't buy out. Fear is the same powerful tool that they use against everyone. Reporters and members of the media are no different than anyone else, and as such, they are also not immune to the fear threat.

Those that don't buy into the fear, well, there's another solution for them, as we've apparently seen from the death of Michael Hastings, contributing editor for The Rolling Stone, as well as a reporter for BuzzFeed.com.  ... [Read more]
 


Europe Rejects GMO Crops; Kinder Gentler America Seeks Llabeling
Jon Rappoprt's Blog, by Jon Rappoport - 060313

It’s a scandal.

 

Monsanto has just announced it’s giving up on most of Europe: people there don’t want GMO food. In America, the struggle is for labeling GMOs.

 

This is some kind of “fairness doctrine.” Let the US consumer decide what kind of food to buy. Choice. It’s the American way, right?

 

No, actually it isn’t. The evidence gathered over the last 10 years is staggering. GMO food and the herbicides sprayed on them constitute a major health hazard, to say the least.

And this doesn’t begin to cover the lying business practices of Monsanto, who promised farmers that Roundup would kill weeds in the fields. Instead, the weeds have proliferated to the point where the farmers have to kill everything growing with stronger, more dangerous herbicides, like Paraquat.

In the US, laws exist to prosecute crimes involving endangerment of health and crimes related to false marketing practices. These laws are on the books. When it comes to Monsanto, they’re gathering dust on the shelves.

 

Choice and fairness apply to competitive products that are safe. The consumer picks one type of tomato over another. The consumer buys walnuts rather than pecans. The consumer chooses black olives over green olives.

 

Choosing non-GMO corn instead of GMO corn still leaves dangerous GMO corn in produce bins.

 

Should a bottle of cyanide sit on a store shelf next to a bottle of salt, just to be fair to the consumer? To give him a choice?

 

Three or four federal law-enforcement agencies would arrest and prosecute the store owners who sell cyanide, as well as the distributors, and the packagers.

 

But in the case of GMO food, the FDA and USDA, the relevant agencies, do nothing. Neither does the Dept. of Justice.

 

Aside from several counties in America that have banned the growing of GMO crops, the big push is for labeling of GMO food in stores. That’s it.

 

The theory is, when consumers have a choice, they’ll overwhelmingly reject GMOs and put a serious crimp in Monsanto’s business. That may or may not happen (if labeling is widespread), but the theory doesn’t directly address Monsanto’s crimes. ... [Read more]


Highly Questionable New Study Says Americans Like Drone Surveillance And Government Spying In US
OrionTalkRadio, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 062613

A new study has caught the attention of Constitutional scholars and activists. According to alleged new polling conducted by the Institute for Homeland Security Solutions (IHSS), a research consortium led by RTI International, this highly suspicious report tries to maintain that US citizens thinks that US drone surveillance and illegal spying are a good thing for America.

Many are up in arms over the new report, suggesting that this is nothing more than a manufactured story to try and shore up support for a US government which has leaned more and more towards a US police state since 9/11.

This reporter would very much like to know the confidence level used with a 2,000 person poll, based against a 300-million person population, because this report does not give this necessary statistic for measuring the accuracy of a poll, otherwise known as the the margin of error.

For this reason, this poll is quite questionable to those who have a background in research and statistics. Probably most glaring of all is the lack of any negative feedback from those who were polled. That is highly suspicious and needs to be considered when weighing the results of this alleged new poll from IHSS.

NSA Whistleblower On Trusting Government


Cheney: I Helped Set Up Secret NSA Spy Program
Lawmakers Favored Secrecy on Surveillance

InformationClearinghouse.info, by Matthew Pennington - 062613

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday U.S. congressional leaders he briefed in 2004 on a surveillance program recently disclosed by leaker Edward Snowden supported it, and both Republicans and Democrats wanted to keep it secret.

Cheney said he was directly involved in setting up the program, run by the National Security Agency, or NSA, in the weeks after the 9/11 attacks. He said it has had "phenomenal results" in preventing terrorist attacks.

Cheney did not specify which survelliance program he was referring to. Snowden, a former NSA contractor, is facing espionage charges stemming from his disclosure of U.S. surveillance programs that collect phone records and online data in the name of national security.

"There was a time when it was a very, very close hold. Unfortunately it's become public," said Cheney. ...

"I Am Sorry That It Has Come to This": A Soldier's Last Words

InformationClearinghouse.info, 062413

Daniel Somers was a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was part of Task Force Lightning, an intelligence unit. In 2004-2005, he was mainly assigned to a Tactical Human-Intelligence Team (THT) in Baghdad, Iraq, where he ran more than 400 combat missions as a machine gunner in the turret of a Humvee, interviewed countless Iraqis ranging from concerned citizens to community leaders and and government officials, and interrogated dozens of insurgents and terrorist suspects. In 2006-2007, Daniel worked with Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) through his former unit in Mosul where he ran the Northern Iraq Intelligence Center. His official role was as a senior analyst for the Levant (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, and part of Turkey). Daniel suffered greatly from PTSD and had been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and several other war-related conditions. On June 10, 2013, Daniel wrote the following letter to his family before taking his life. Daniel was 30 years old. His wife and family have given permission to publish it.

The fact is, for as long as I can remember my motivation for getting up every day has been so that you would not have to bury me. As things have continued to get worse, it has become clear that this alone is not a sufficient reason to carry on. The fact is, I am not getting better, I am not going to get better, and I will most certainly deteriorate further as time goes on. From a logical standpoint, it is better to simply end things quickly and let any repercussions from that play out in the short term than to drag things out into the long term.

You will perhaps be sad for a time, but over time you will forget and begin to carry on. Far better that than to inflict my growing misery upon you for years and decades to come, dragging you down with me. It is because I love you that I can not do this to you. You will come to see that it is a far better thing as one day after another passes during which you do not have to worry about me or even give me a second thought. You will find that your world is better without me in it. ... [Read more]


Explosive: President of CBS News And WH Benghazi Fiction-Writer Are  Blood Brothers
www.nomorefakenews.com, by Jon Rappoport - 052313

Just a coincidence. Nothing to see. Move along.

Remember the Benghazi attacks? Remember how the White House rewrote their talking points to scrub out mention of a terrorist attack?

Well, here are some new talking points.

Point one: Star CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, has been discussing leaving CBS since April. She can’t get some of her Benghazi stories on the air. Attkisson was hot on the trail of figuring out who, at the White House, rewrote the Benghazi talking points.

Point two: One sure candidate at the White House? Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser and “mind-melding” speechwriter.

Point three: Who is Ben Rhodes’ brother? He is David Rhodes, who happens to be Sharyl Attkisson’s boss, the president of CBS News.

Point four: Read point three again.

Point five: Those White House Benghazi rewrites scrubbed prior mention of “terror attacks.”

Point six: Again, reporter Attkisson was hot on the trail of the White House fiction writers—which could have led to her boss’s brother.

Point seven: Again, Attkisson got into hot water at CBS for her Benghazi coverage.

Point eight: Again, the president of CBS News, her boss, is the brother of the man who helped organize the White House fiction writing on Benghazi.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever
The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix
TheRollingStone.com, by Matt Taibbi - 042513

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.

You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that's trillion, with a "t") worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it "dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets." ...  [Read More]


The Attempt To Destroy The Individual
www.nomorefakenews.com, by Jon Rappoport - 042713
 
“What is finished is the idea that this great country is dedicated to the freedom and flourishing of every individual in it. It’s the individual that’s finished. It’s the single, solitary human being that’s finished. It’s every single one of you out there that’s finished. Because this is no longer a nation of independent individuals. It’s a nation of some two hundred odd million transistorized, deodorized, whiter-than-white, steel-belted bodies, totally unnecessary as human beings and as replaceable as piston rods.” — Howard Beale, in Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film, Network

Authorities Never Have “Issues With Authority”
www.nomorefakenews.com, by Jon Rappoport - 042113

It’s simple. Authorities invented the idea that other people have issues with authority.

Psychiatrists rank right up there among the elitists setting the standards. They, for example, have concocted a little fictional doodad called Oppositional Defiance Disorder. And magically, they never accuse their professional colleagues of having it. No.

Why should they? They amuse themselves by deciding when civilians are overly defiant and need pacification (drugs).

But we’re also talking about character structure here, because psychiatrists turn out to be exactly the people who want to slap labels like ODD on others. They like that. So they labor in universities and hospitals and earn their degrees and state-issued licenses, knowing that soon they will have that power.

Having gained it, there is nothing to be defiant about. They’re sitting on top of the heap, which they call science.

It’s quite a racket.

DHS, Feds, Load Up On Hollow Point Ammo
Many Are Questioning: Why Is The US Government Preparing Deadly Force Against Its Own Citizens?
OrionTalkRadio, by Tim Watts - 032813
 

At a time when most Americans, including local police, are finding it impossible to buy ammo, the US government is continuing to stockpile extra lethal hollow point ammunition, prohibited for use in warfare by the Geneva convention.
 

So why is the US government loading up on extra-lethal ammo that is obviously intended for domestic use?
 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has tried to say the ammo is for target practice and that they are buying in bulk to save money, but hollow points cost far more than full metal jackets, and no one uses expensive hollow points for target practice. So much for that excuse.
 

Over 2-billion rounds have been purchased in the last ten months, with 240-thousand rounds bought just last month. Now, DHS is buying another 360-thousand rounds. When totaled, this is enough ammo to pump at least seven rounds into every single man, woman and child in America.
 

At a time when many are concerned about an ever growing US police state, some have suggested that the purchases also serve another function, limiting the amount of ammo that is available for the American public, at a time when Congress is trying to implement public gun control.

The addition of HR 658, which authorizes 30,000 drones for US airspace, has some wondering why the Congress and our government are turning against the American people. During the Bush-Cheney era alone, Federal law enforcement agencies grew by nearly 30-percent from 2004 to 2008.

 

One thing appears certain, DHS and the US government are preparing for a deadly fight with the American people, and our elected representatives have done nothing to stop it.

Why Do They Want To Take Our Guns Away?
What They Don't Want You To Know--There Is NO Problem With Guns In The United States!
OrionTalkRadio, by Tim Watts - 032813
 

Despite the fact that all of the mass shootings in this country have nefarious origins, beyond what has been reported in the media, there is no reason to take our guns away. In Wisconsin, Colorado and Connecticut, all of the mass shootings were the work of multiple shooters. That's a fact that the media hasn't told you. (See the video below)

 

The FBI says that murder by gun has gone down for five straight years in a row, even with the questionable mass shootings included. Now, here are the real numbers that they do not want you to know. In a country of 310-million people we had only 8,583 murders by gun. That comes down to just 0.003% of the population. Not even 1% !! That is an infinitesimally diminutive number. It's laughable!

 

So ask yourself, where is there a gun problem in the US?

 

Then ask yourself another question, why didn't the corporate mainstream media tell you this?

 

No one has ever talked about this statistic, until now.

 

Just remember, you heard it here first.

Know Thine Enemy
Understanding Their Drive And Their Fear Can Help You Beat Them
NewsFocus.org, Op/Ed by Tim Watts -
030113

The true enemies of this world are not adversarial nations or terrorist organizations. As a matter of fact, these two factions are actually driven by the real evil in this world, the ultra-wealthy who control everything.

Granted, within this equation are nobility and aristocracy - kings and queens, emperors, barons, tycoons and magnates - those of unfathomable opulent wealth, but it's not always the position you hold as much as it is the money.

As Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws."

Rothschild was absolutely correct, because those who control the money supply  of a nation control that nation. In today's world, the central bankers do appear to have supreme rule over all.

Make no mistake about it though, bankers or not, the true controllers of this world are without a doubt those possessing unimaginable obscene wealth, the billionaires and trillionaires who have looted their vast fortunes through either thievery, unsavory business dealings, and/or the unscrupulous exploitation of free-for-all unregulated capitalism.

If you doubt such a premise, perhaps you have not given much thought as to how the machinations of evil are perpetuated upon society. ... [Read more]


Subjecting Congress To The Same Checks That They Hold Us To
If They Can Infringe On Our Rights, For Others' Crimes, Then They Need To Be Held Accountable For The Crimes of Their Peers As Well
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 030113

With the gun debate raging in the US, many Americans have been outraged by the temerity of Congress in calling for restrictions on our 2nd amendment Constitutional right. After all, the 2nd amendment specifically says that this right "shall not be infringed," so why do our elected representatives think that they are able to go over our heads and ask for something that the greater majority of We The People did not call for?

The attacks in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut are alleged to be attacks from lone gunmen, one person that flipped out and decided to just start shooting innocent people. While that premise is a bit far fetched, and also considering that there is ample evidence from both shootings to prove that accomplices were involved, how is it that Congress feels it has the right to make us pay for someone else's crimes, by restricting our Constitutional rights? ...

10 Things The Media Don’t Want To Discover About Sandy Hook
NoMoreFakeNews.com, by Jon Rappoport - 020913

Slashing through the bland authoritative front the media have presented, people want to know more about the Sandy Hook massacre. But the elite networks have no intention of answering the most obvious questions.

Why? Because the follow-up agenda of gun control is all important, and the official Sandy Hook scenario must stand, in order to forward that agenda.

Any return to the scene of the crime will:

divert media coverage from its all-out push to make guns into taboo objects of scorn, ridicule, fear, and hatred;

focus attention on reasons for the massacre that have nothing to do with guns;

engender deep distrust of the Sandy Hook police investigation and therefore, by association, throw into doubt the notion that law-enforcement personnel should be the only people carrying guns in America.

Here are 10 things the media doesn’t want to know about and has no intention of investigating. These are only the basics, amid a wider sea of unanswered questions:

GUNS AND THE COMING REVOLUTION
Soldiers For Peace International, by Rick Staggenborg - 011313

I swore I was not going to write about the gun debate that has followed the latest mass murder. It seemed an exercise in futility. Trying to convince people that they are wrong on gun control is like trying to influence their views on abortion. Attitudes and opinions are fixed on the issue. There is little chance that one more opinion will change them. Recently, the conversation took an interesting turn, one that is new to the ongoing debate on gun control. The idea that we have to have personal weapons to fight our own government went from being a fringe idea to a mainstream argument, defended by conservatives and many pro-second amendment liberals.
It has been obvious to every thinking American for some time that something is terribly wrong with our current government. ... (Read more)

This website was the first to break the news about the real gun crime statistics in the US. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, murder by gun was down for the fifth straight year in a row! Out of 8,583 gun murders, only 323 were by long rifle. Hand guns far exceeded this with 6,220 deaths. So why are they trying to ban long rifles? Because they are the real threat to a growing police state in the US. Get the real facts and then make sure that Congress knows that "We The People" know what the true agenda really is.

AlterNet.org, by Aaron James - 110112

The following is an excerpt from  “Assholes: A Theory”  by Aaron James. Reprinted with permission from Doubleday, a division of Random House Inc.

Assholes largely share a thick sense of moral entitlement. Just as hypocrisy is the homage that vice pays to virtue, late 19th and early 20th century businessmen like Cecil Rhodes, Albert Beveridge and John D. Rockefeller all felt a need to invoke entitlement on a cosmic scale, in effect sensing that something might be majorly amiss. In stark contrast with the grandiose reasoning of the era of colonialism, the asshole in more recent modern life often requires little or no pretext of larger cause for the special privileges he feels entitled to enjoy. ...
