Koch Footprints Lead to Political Powder Keg: Exposing the Far Right's Secret Slush Fund to Keep Fear Alive

A secretive libertarian nonprofit bankrolled a fear-mongering effort to get McCain into the White House. Until now, where the money came from has been a hotly debated mystery.

Clip from propaganda movie Obsession mentioned below:


A secretive libertarian nonprofit with ties to Charles Koch bankrolled what was widely perceived to be a fear mongering effort to throw the Presidential election to Senator John McCain in 2008. Until now, where the money came from has been a hotly debated mystery.

Seven weeks before the Presidential election of 2008, approximately 100 newspapers and magazines in the U.S., including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Miami Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, and St. Petersburg Times, distributed millions of DVDs of the documentary, Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West. The DVDs were included in the Sunday editions. Altogether, including a separate direct mail campaign, 28 million DVDs flooded households in the swing voter states.

The newspapers did not know who was funding this massive propaganda campaign and, apparently, did not care. They inserted the DVD in their Pulitzer properties with the casualness of throwing in a sample of suds free detergent. The nonprofit organization named on the packaging of the DVD as the entity behind the film, the Clarion Fund, Inc., had no known history of operations and had a virtual office address in New York City with no physical presence and no employees on site. Documents submitted to the IRS to obtain its tax-exempt status show the Clarion Fund demanded total secrecy from its vendors:

AMIA was Mossad False-flag Operation

The Israel Lobby is upset that US Under-Secretary of States, Nicholas Burns, during his recent visit to Argentina - while condemning Tehran for supporting "terrorist groups" like Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizb'Allah, and PA - did not mention Tehran's involvement for the two terrorist attacks in Argentina between 1992 and 1994.

"In general we do believe that Iran is behind terrorist attacks against the United States and that Iran continues to be a large funder, even the central banker of Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Palestinian Liberation Authority general command," - Burns told Buenos Aires Herald (edited by Nate Martin from N.Y. ) reporter.

It's interesting to note that the very first day of the Jewish Center (AMIA) bombing in Buenos Aires on July 1994, which resulted in the death of 85 people, the Zionist owned mainstream media blamed Iran and Hizb'Allah - in order to cover the long histroy of false-flag operations by Israeli Mossad - and as expected, a team of Israeli investigators arrived in Buenos Aires the very next day to remove any possible lead to Israel - as they did in case of Hotel Paradise (an Israeli hotel in Mombassa) bombing in Kenya and other places.

Disclosures Reveal Most Senators Are Millionaires - and Getting Richer

The Senate's famed "millionaires club" is becoming a little crowded.

According to a Roll Call analysis of Senate financial disclosure forms filed in 2010, more than half of the chamber's membership, 54 lawmakers, reported a minimum net worth of more than $1 million. Another four Senators fell short of that mark by less than $100,000.

In addition, more than half of the Senate's membership saw their individual fortunes grow in 2009, the period covered by their most recent disclosure reports.

Those increases are reflected in the chamber's combined minimum wealth, which increased to about $680 million in 2009, or more than 4 percent higher than the previous year.

2007: Electronic Voting in France Sparks Concern of Election Theft

Paris - The French may be keener than ever to follow the presidential campaign on the Internet, but when it comes to voting, the most widely trusted technology here is still the traditional paper ballot and envelope.

Over a million French voters are due to use electronic voting machines in a presidential election for the first time this month, prompting fears among opposition parties and the public that the ballot will be distorted.

The interior ministry has approved three models of voting machine, and mayors around the country have chosen to invest in the expensive devices, arguing that they will save time, effort and, in the long run, money.

But thousands of voters are concerned the machines are not fully secure or reliable. They point to controversies in Ireland, the Netherlands and the hotly disputed 2000 US presidential vote.

Towards Martial Law in America: Authority to Deploy Troops Domestically during 'National Emergencies'

Earlier this month, the United States Coast Guard upheld its self-declared status as a 'special' branch of the military with the ability to prosecute civilians in military tribunals. This startling declaration, unreported in the media, came in a Decision on Appeal related to the case of Lieutenant Eric Shine, a commissioned Naval officer in the Merchant Marines and a graduate of Kings Point Military Service Academy, and was penned by the Vice Commandant of the Coast Guard. The decision can be downloaded and read here.

The Coast Guard began proceedings to strip Lieutenant Shine of his merchant mariner license in March, 2003, supposedly as the result of incidents related to his service on two private vessels in 2001. In actuality, as Lieutenant Shine points out, the charges were brought in retaliation for attempting to blow the whistle on illegal dumping and other practices he had been asked to engage in during his employment. The Coast Guard's case against him rested on two hostile witnesses (who had previously been named by Shine in his whistleblower litigation) and the Chief of the Coast Guard Medical Evaluations Office, an officer in the Coast Guard who had never examined Shine but was willing to testify to his medical incompetence.

Wikileaks, Assorted Actors And Faith-Based Frolics In The War On Terror

Does anyone believe it anymore? I really wish I had access to a reliable census on what the majority of people in this world believe about the purported 'Islamic terror threat', 9/11 etc. etc. Over the past 10 years several US 9/11 polls have been published. Depending on which of the shockingly few mainstream media corporations you prefer, somewhere between 36% and 62% of the US public believe that the US government is, at the very least, not telling the truth about the 9/11 attacks. If true, (and we have every reason to believe that the media corps down-play the figures) what does that mean for public perception of the 'Islamic terror threat' on which the 9/11 attacks are based?

If a majority of human beings can, at this stage, see through most of the increasingly crass US, British, French and Israeli government and assorted 'Intelligence' agency hyperbole and propaganda, can we expect them to just drop the whole charade any time soon? Sadly, recent media reports suggest otherwise and point to a deepening of the global psychological operation to which we have all been subjected these past 10 years.

David Kelly: Conspiracy Theories

If any new inquest returned an open verdict it could trigger a fresh police investigation into Dr Kelly's death.
Conspiracy theorists believe that Dr David Kelly, who was found dead after being identified as the leak who criticised the claim that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that could be fired in 45 minutes, did not kill himself. Here are some of their key questions.
  • Why did the detective who found Dr Kelly's body not tell the Hutton Inquiry that there was a third man in a suit with him and his partner when the body was discovered?
  • How did Dr Kelly cut his left wrist if, as friends said, he had previously damaged his right arm to such a degree that he struggled cutting steak?
  • Why was the ulnar artery severed rather than the radial, which is how the cut would "naturally" have been made, from left to right, with the right hand?

Is this how the EU got a Yes to Lisbon from the Irish?

Brainwashed Irish youths flank Ireland's Minister for Finance
This article on EU propaganda appears today in The Irish Daily Mail -
The European Commission has just flown 15 Irish journalists to Brussels for a two-day 'information visit'. Or as those of us who know Brussels and talk straight would put it, for a two-day, two-night taxpayer-funded propaganda junket at a four-star hotel.

Ireland and the other eurozone countries might be suffering savage spending cuts, but the EU self-publicity budget thrives: in 2008 the Open Europe think-tank calculated that the EU was spending at least €2 billion a year on 'information'.

Much of it bent, which is to say, propaganda. The commission actually admits that its information is bent. One of its publications declares: 'Genuine communication by the European Union cannot be reduced to the mere provision of information.'

The EU propaganda machine pumps money into lobby groups that support 'ever closer union'. They push propaganda into schools. And almost more than anything else, they target the Press. Journalists are offered 'free' trips and training (yes, just like Scientology offers training). The EU gives out cash prizes to on-message journalists.

The War On Terror is a Fraud

Does anyone remember the "cakewalk war" that would last six weeks, cost $50-$60 billion, and be paid for out of Iraqi oil revenues?

Does anyone remember that White House economist Lawrence Lindsey was fired by Dubya because Lindsey estimated that the Iraq war could cost as much as $200 billion?

Lindsey was fired for over-estimating the cost of a war that, according to Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes, has cost 15 times more than Lindsey estimated. And the US still has 50,000 troops in Iraq.

Does anyone remember that just prior to the US invasion of Iraq, the US government declared victory over the Taliban in Afghanistan?

Does anyone remember that the reason Dubya gave for invading Iraq was Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, weapons that the US government knew did not exist?

Are Americans aware that the same neoconservatives who made these fantastic mistakes, or told these fabulous lies, are still in control of the government in Washington?
